Funny how this supposedly new and original game totally copied "Legendary Weapons" from Perfect World. Not just the name, but the entire process is close to identical.

Went back recently and found the game mostly deserted.

If your thinking of trying this game, I hope you like jumping puzzles and 8bit retro mini-games.

Yea I know you don't buy gold in GW2, you buy gems, same pay to win scenario. GW2 is deserted today. MMO's are on their last legs.

Plenty of other games already officially sell gold, and guess what, the bots are still there, the gold farmers are still around, and the worst thing is the game is now officially pay to win. Prices of everything goes sky high, and grinding without a bot becomes futile.
Sad day for WoW, the corporate weasels have won, short term cash flow will increase, but a year from now the player base will have shrunk and be comprised soley of deep pocket whales.

16 bit is short hand for "we were not good enough to work with modern up to date graphic engines, so maybe we can make a few bucks off this outdated primitive unpolished turd."

So basically a slightly updated knockoff of Supreme Commander, eh?

Is there anything unique or new here?

Where do we start?

Severe Pop Out - distant things are not visible and then pop out.

Friendly Fire - Shoot up your own capital ships while you miss those pesky fighters.

Those enemy fighters, can't fly for crap.

Looks like a rail shooter.

This is rich, sounds like that BattleStar Galactica online game with the same lame offering. Bare bones space flight sim, with minimal content and an empty hangar to 'walk' around in.

PT Barnum was right.

36.0.1 - Disable the usage of the ANY DNS query type (1093983)

Sad to say, but the previous verson, simply did not work 75% of the time because of this bug.

Pretty bad when your software can't fullfill it's most basic function.

I guess you can tell I don't think much of Firefoxes upgrade policy (backwards compatibility, we don't need no stinking backwards compatibility, to hell with your plug in collection, redo it all from scratch.)

There is a sucker born every minute.

You might as well just mail all your money to Blizzard and pretend/imagine your regular old pack of playing cards are magic, and make up your fantasy game in your head.

Beyond dumb.

This game is so over, logged in after being gone for 2 years, completely deserted.

Silly hats, jumping puzzles, and crappy 8bit graphics just don't fill the bill for most people.

I would be ashamed to post a game in such a sorry graphical state.

A root canal is more appealing.

News Comments > Pay for WoW Game Time with Game Gold
29. Re: Pay for WoW Game Time with Game Gold Mar 3, 2015, 08:06 Jonjonz
 
MMO's love gold sellers, they inflate the economy, which leads to average joe players with a choice, grind more, or pay up, if they want to keep up with the Whales and no-lifers.

This anti-goldseller thing is just a front.

This is just a cash grab plain and simple.

F2P gets closer and closer.

Also I find all the BS "I made X gold easy" posts amusing.

Face it, the suits run the show there now and they can't resist F2P.

I got fed up with this game about a year ago. Went back last week just to see if it had improved.

Nope.

Same old crap, but with almost no players, anywhere outside of the tired and static PVP.

If I know Arenanet this change won't actually make any difference to a large norn toon trying to navigate many of the cramped caves, puzzles etc.

Chris Roberts is this generations Steve Jobs. Snake Oil Salesman par excellence!

In reality he is just a version of the Battlecrusier guy but with better social/marketing skills.

Don't forget this guy was head of Wing Commander and he let it fizzle out while Freespace ate it's lunch.

A pure desperation "make what ever we can cash grab" before the bottom falls out move, if ever.

Looks like a mix of Homeworld and Supreme Commander, I don't see anything new or improved here.

Ever notice when they want to sell RTS games the videos show battles, lots and lots of battles. What they never show you is how 99% of these games are all about resource gathering, and build trees, as in how fast can you get your economy up and running and go on the offensive. That is neither fun or attractive to me.

I won't touch another RTS until they swap the balance to (90% action, 10% resource gathering/base building).

In fact I promise to buy at retail the first RTS to come out that does away with resource gathering and base building entirely, and plays more like a giant toy chest. You simply pick and choose what units you want, the battle location, and get to lay out your and the enemy units however you see fit. A battle sand box. Now someone go and make a fortune off that.

Looks rather a bit of a botch up, things work, kinda. If that is the best they can show, I would hate to see the real flaws.

Another house makes the mistake that realism is better than story telling.
