Few were more annoyed and disappointed with GW2's direction than I was compared to GW. And while I was right about most things comparing, for my kid it's been the best mmo ever - he and his friends do wvw/pvp every day; it's *very* popular among their age group.

Hellgate London had a fantastic amount of potential. I regret nothing about buying it on Day One. Really is too bad the company that made it was so poorly run. I don't play the F2P online version, I tried it and had some fun. Seems to be a decent game with a decent community. I have the community modded/patched single player version that addresses most of the biggest issues the game had. A ton of fun to be had in that.

It obviously has limits because development has stopped, but it was a lot of fun while it lasted. They created a very cool world that I would love to revisit if someone were able to make a second game.

Development is stopped now, but it went on for a long time after Flagship was gone. This new company developped an entire expansion and has done a lot of balancing work. It's not up to Flagship quality, but it's still cool.

Hellgate Global is/was the only iteration of a persistent fps arpg (random loot FPS) that has been made - still a huge empty hole in that arena that Borderlands could have pounced on ages ago and made millions more than their cheap-ass redo's of the same single/coop experience.

Closest thing these days is a console Destiny.

I read the 8billion page thread here where so many of you were chest beating, hooting, screeching, hi-fiving in delight for the passing of a govt regulated internet-impacting bill that not a single one of you read or has any real clue as to what it contains.

Congrats sheeple...

Robot Disco Dodgeball - the game is legit!).

Hahah wow! Does it support local multiplayer?

I'm not sure Glaze, I've only been playing online multiplayer. Eric needs to do some more work overall like dedicated servers and a few other necessities that will bond a community..

...but the gameplay is hot shit man, seriously solid game.

Because no matter what the bling-boys think is important, gameplay is all that matters.

Which is why I play TF2 religiously and have been since it's inception (though recently it's been trumped with Robot Disco Dodgeball - the game is legit!).

The vast majority of players either do champ runs or dungeons for pve/crafting, or wvw/pvp/1v1.

I play on and off with my son, but he plays constantly and almost exclusively pvp unless he's leveling a new guy. They try to find "glitches" alot too, very popular among younger players to run outside the zone areas to see how far they can go...

Doesn't matter to me when it's released, I'll check the reviews/forums/comments to see if it's a shit port and if it is I won't buy it.

However, I'm hoping it'll be done "PC Right" first thing out of the gate as I'd quite like to enjoy the game.

Besides... I was wondering how to juggle that with Pillars of Eternity.. and now I can!

I sure hope they succeed in sinking it too, it's a fucking farce.

You better hope you know what you are getting if you think it's a good idea -- most have no idea.... they just hear "baddie companies" and sign whatever is thrown in front of them.

It's not partisan, it's just more red tape gov't control that is all ready out of control -- And it's right where it's not needed.

I doubt he or anyone else knew they could do that, it sure isn't obvious.

Pure fraud is one thing, Obama's poorly written amnesty crap which allows illegal aliens to get back-credits is a whole other pot of bullshit.

There's way more "legal" fraud than illegal.

News Comments > SanctuaryRPG: Black Edition Leaves Early ASCII
1. Re: SanctuaryRPG: Black Edition Leaves Early ASCII Feb 14, 2015, 10:50 Axis
 
Surprised no one commented on this yet.

For an ascii text based roguelike, it's extremely fun and surprisingly deep. I'm glad to see developments like this, it's not like the old infocom story-type, it's action over exploration and done very well.

Well worth the $5, if only because nothing else is like it out there like it. Plus I've been pretty much done supporting most AAA games, especially if they are over $40 and a rehash of the same old crap.

Now if we can somewhat soon see KoTC2 get released, I'll be even more happy!

1 billion data records were stolen last year, thanks to poor security asshole thieves.
Fixed!

Even if security was so good only 50 data records were stolen, we can still point the finger at asshole thieves.

I despised the direction GW2 took, but it turned out exactly as I thought -- and surprisingly became a fantastic kids game. I just was looking through the lens of my personal gaming taste, but my son has loved it for a year now.

I log on occasionally and play with him and there's a huge amount of people who just chill, 1v1, wvw, games, etc and they love it.

It's nothing like GW1, but its the best kid-friendly-but-not-*too*-easy mmo out there.

What happened is Linth took many of the arguments to heart and made a change for the betterment of his child and family.

He may not admit it, but I can tell.

At the end of the day, making informed choices for your family is a great thing - nothing was wasted in this thread.
