I'm loving the game. Have a level 50 Arcanist and Alchemist now, and am continually finding things enjoyable. Endgame so far has even been fun, which I find kind of rare in the opening months of an MMO.
Hearthstone to me seems like a simulation of an actual game, but without all the animation and actual interaction. Totally makes sense that you'd play that over....an ACTUAL game. Good article. Super logical conclusions.
This feels slightly unfair, as reviews go. The majority of the negatives are based around the hardware. That's like someone with a lower end PC rating the game poorly because it doesn't play as well as it could. The core of the gameplay, the game itself, rates higher than a 5, and most of your reviews would suggest just that. I'm not sure where the dislike is coming from.
I can't figure out why people are clamoring to reach max level so quickly. This is the first MMO I've played in a long time where I relished exploring each zone I was in and actually reading quest text. I'm not sure what the rush is.
This is dumb. Mario never loses his hat.
Nice. Was hoping this would happen. I don't mind playing on PC, but if I can get trophies, more the better.
I'm sad at this. I love that franchise and don't want to see it on phones. Ports maybe, but not numbered installments. Those belong on consoles (and frankly belong on the Vita).
Dang. It's too bad one person has the capability of killing a series with millions and millions of fans. Why did they give you all the power? :(
Seriously...I was waiting for a price drop on it but didn't expect a price collapse.
The lesson here is that winning beauty pageants will get you a career as a pro gamer!
She remains my favorite FF character of all time. Good stuff.
Praise the sun.
If you think about the 3DS sales versus the WiiU sales, I think this is and unlikely scenario, even though the other two console releases (Gamecube and Wii) were some of the best games I've ever played.
Honestly feel like a lost a close friend today. Been listening to Ryan for the past four years on the podcast. This is a hole in my life I don't see being filled.
Yeah that really only applies to crappy games. I bet if they changed their data to reflect metascores (which suck but I can't think of a better "quality" number to go with), that things would look much different. Overall sales might drop, but I bet quality games have a much higher sale rate because of demos.
I don't have any friends. Why would I need a second controller...
What a pointless article. Is this gaming journalism now? Whining and pouting about incidental things?
Releasing a new game every month just makes me think it'll be a slew of half-assed, boring games.
Amazon numbers are weird...like, why is Maw, a game that's years old, on the top five sellers? That's crackers.
I really love those two dudes.
