Definitely one of the loneliest mmos I've ever played. Some of the toughest dungeons at the beginning are single-player only, so you can barely play with a friend. Their approach at trying to make it like a single-player game was the worst decision they could have made. It just turned out to be a boring single-player game with the option of having friends grind through boring quests with you. It's really too bad, because the graphics and sound were really good for the time.

It's not getting great reviews on STEAM (mixed), not that is the be-all-end-all, but makes me hesitant to pull the trigger to drop $60 on it right now. Hopefully they'll have a free weekend trial at some point.

Sounds like most of you are having fun though!

The only games that get good reviews on Steam are indie games that look like they were made in the 80s. This thread is a bit more trustworthy.

The hype is fizzling out for this. Maybe now they'll surprise us someday.

Nice graphics when it works. Crappy, boring gameplay.

Looks great, but will this be another game that's mostly about visuals and lacking in the gameplay department? All the gameplay videos I've seen looks like you just spam your weapon trigger until a mob goes down. In fact, I've seen videos where you could be point blank and you still need to shoot several times in the head before they go down. I'm not a big fan of that kind of lazy gameplay.

Is this game still nothing but spamming your weapon like a 2003 arcady shooter? I saw a couple gameplay videos a few months back and it was nothing but bullet spraying with players and npcs barely taking damage.

I don't know about the game but the website appears to be a Guild Wars 2 ripoff.

Seriously. Right down to the font!

It doesn't look anything like it. Not even the same font.

It takes 5 shots to the head point blank to take someone down. Spam those guns, man!

Same routine, different game. People download and play the game hoping that it's the mmorpg that takes the genre to the next level (no pun), only to be disappointed when they realize that it's the same ol' same ol' with a different skin. The mmorpg genre is pretty much dead for the west (meaning most western devs aren't taking a chance with this genre anymore), and the east just continues to stick to the same grind, grind, grind Asian OCD formula. 1 million subscriptions to 100,000 active subscriptions in a month. You'll see. Same routine.

This game seems hardly worth buying. Wrap a new skin around FC4, remove a bunch of features (including co-op), call it a new game. Sorry Ubisoft, not going to fall for this crap.

I'm going to wait for 2.0 and see how that does. I'm thinking the intial response from people will be that they're amazed that they can look all around, but then that initial first impression will wear off fast and then they'll start thinking about how good it could be if the technology was better.

This is, in my view the reason why the PC market is in trouble. There has been no software created in the last ten years that uses the available hardware.

guy is living in a fucking cave.. where do they find these people and how in the hell are they getting hired

Nope, pretty much true from a business perspective.

Nope - complete bullshit. Heres one for you: Adobe Photoshop. Adobe After Effects. the whole adobe CC, thats just one suite of software that absolutely requires as much horsepower as youve got

not to mention the audio side of things

if you are talking about word processing, then you are a complete fucking idiot because that peaked with DOS

My 5 year old pc runs current photoshop, video editing software, my audio recording software, etc, etc, with no problem. The article is correct. The reason pc sales are slowing is that there hasn't been any big reason to upgrade year after year, and that things like tablets have dominated the casual market. Even current triple A games run good enough on my 5 year old pc with my 5 year old gfx card. I'm not sure why people are disagreeing with the article.
