Analysts say success of miHoYo-developed game is another sign of the growing technical and marketing prowess of China in the video games space.
It's a surprisingly good game, easily the best F2P game i've played. It does a better job than most explaining all the different currencies and consumables. There's still some stuff i don't fully understand, but most F2P games are just a clusterf#@k and they do such a poor job explaining it i usually just stop playing.
Never played Path of Exile I guess ^^
A lot of people have played PoE, then they stopped. Because it's lame.
Been playing the game and surprisingly I am really enjoying it :)
I'm about 5 hours on it and all I can say is that the game is Gorgeous. Both visually and musically. The production levels are surprisingly high. I'm currently playing 2 games, this and RDR2, and even though RDR2 is visually top notch, Genshin Impact doesn't pale. It has its own beauty and particular feeling. I'm eager to play more and have a deeper experience with the battle and leveling system as well as the story. So far it doesn't look at all like a Free to Play game. Production values are on par with any other Asian AAA game.
Saw my nephew playing this and wonder wtf it was - looks lovely and pretty fun!
I'm really enjoying it. Surprisingly F2P friendly. like I don't feel pressured to actually spend money in this game because I can just grind out most everything. It also helps that the open world is actually enjoyable.
Just don't get it in your head that you want Diluc (the coolest character currently available). You can end up spending hundreds trying. I watched a guy on Youtube do it. Unreal.
Diluc is S tier. But I'm not super invested in getting him atm haha. Xiangling is good enough fire user till I switch her out for Klee when she releases. But I have been down that rabbit hole before with Arknights and some how got myself out haha 😅😂
Looks kinda like BOTW, but different enough.
It does better than BOTW in a lot of ways, but also takes a few steps back (no slow motion aiming in the air, no mounts, story is decent, but not as heavy/epic as Zelda). Definitely worth checking out FOR FREE lol.
Surveillance impact you mean !!! All my conspiracy theorists know wt I mean lol /s
Being F2P Is good and all, badly optimized framerate isn't, especially on locked console systems.
It's 30 fps, but sometimes drops a bit here and there. It's not a huge concern. If FPS is an issue to you, just play it on PC. Or wait for the inevitable PS5 upgrade.
Its totally fun and I'm having a blast with the elemental combos. Its definitely one of the best f2p games I've played. They don't shove the MTs in your face either.
F2P open world with waifus is a recipe for success.
Too many waifus. I would like a couple cool male characters. Aside from the main character and Kaeda, the only one I've found that isn't overly feminine is Diluc and is near impossible to summon.
Gave it a crack - bored me to death, too easy, looks great though. The controls are very floaty and gameplay is simplistic. Only managed to get to Adventure level 8, just not for me.
Give it time. It gets much harder at higher ranks. There is also more to the combat mechanics than what you see right away. The first 16 Adventure ranks are basically just the tutorial.
I was only trying ot for the co-op, and then realising it didn't unlock until Adv Lvl 16 - sort of deflated me. It was only a filler game until PS5 hit.
I felt the same way, there was no challenge at all. I also reach alvl 8 and I don't think I fought 1 boss not to mention I found out co op sucks so I was pretty much done after that.
thats not even tutorial done at that stage. try reaching Adventure level 30 and game gets really challenging. there's so much to do with so many character combo and exploring.
cartoonx1 - tbh, it's not my usual type of game, thought I'd give it a try. And while I did enjoy it at the start - its not the sort of game I'd spend a significant amountbof time on. Each to their own.
I agree with you. Game looks great even on phones but gameplay and storyline are meh.
It took me 3 days of 2 - 3 hours gaming sessions to unlock co-op. The game itself is great, co-op is just a nice addition.
16 adventure lvls in that time? I only managed around 8, I must have done something wrong. Or I just wasn't enjoying it.
The marketing for it was really good and its a decent f2p game.
The game is pretty damn fun and runs flawlessly at 3440x1440. Just wish you could remap the controls.
I hate that they use the PS Japanese confirm button when playing on pc with a ps4 controller.Otherwise yup
A Chinese company carbon-copying Japan’s Breath of the Wild. If you support this you are part of the problem.
It's not a carbon copy there you 2 digit I.Q. fellow. It's an online JRPG with elements borrowed from Breath of the Wild enough to be it's own game.
So it’s Breath of the Wild online then you 1 digit IQ owning fellow.
See, you clearly do not understand comprehensive reading, which prooves you are intelligent as a brick. "elements borrowed" meaning it has some thing that are from BOTW, which btw almost every game has something borrorw from one or other games. Last but not least BOTW is not online game while Genshin Impact so therefore this game is not a carbon copy from BOTW, You truly are a jackass.
That's what I thought when i first seen the trailer over a year ago. Even then i welcomed it, BOTW clone on PS4/XB1? hell yeah!. Playing it, it's nothing like BOTW, takes some notes sure, climbing, stamina, gliding, and elemental interactivity. But combat, story, gameplay loop, voice acting, art design, missions, characters etc are so far from BOTW it doesn't even pay to compare the 2.
Coz BotW didn't copy anything. /s
That’s how the Chinese do it! But hey, at least they copied a good game. A lot of games copy Nintendo anyway. There’s a ton of Mario Kart clones and even some Smash Bros. ones too. Final Fantasy started as a Dragon Quest clone too. My point is that it’s not necessarily a bad thing. And the fact that it’s Chinese isn’t necessarily a bad thing either.
Carbon-copied off Breath of the Wild in the land that laughs at copyright laws. China hates Japan.
its changed enough to not fall under the copyright law. and breath of the wild isnt the game that holds copyright to stamina bar gliding and climbing and running. developers kinda know its basic mechanics. they are games that fall under the same genre yes. pretty similair true. but its like saying watch dogs should get a copyright claim from GTA.
Its a good time. Pull rates are pretty garbage though but since its single player pve it does not matter lol. You are gaurenteed 4* items every 10 or before so it kinda offsets the crappy rates.
So much data being harvested by Chinese government!
I am love this game. No pay to write good things me do. 100/100 5 Star
sponsorship all over twitch sure helped. it's too ayaya for me
I'm very happy a Chinese studio has hit the market with something that can set an example for their industry. Looking forward to greater diversity in the next 10 years.
I wouldn't be surprised if it's also the biggest international spyware spread either...
I think you need to take a few layers off that tin foil hat.
Looks like a good game but I am staying away from games that are that gotcha games and made in China. I originally thought it was going to be a console game.
I really don't want to play Chinese video games, but it sounds like a good one to check out. I may have to at some point
I lot of people are complaining it is "chinese" and like this and like that. However, I will take it this upon any EA or Ubisoft or the same FPS games every dam year.
It really is great!
Talking about Chinese developers, I cant wait for Wu Kong.
