Against the Wall: Humanity in Guild Wars 2

Humanity has taken a beating in the two hundred fifty years between Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2. They’ve lost their homeland of Ascalon to their enemy, the charr, and they lost contact with the lands of Elona and Cantha after the rise of the dragons. Most of what’s left of humanity has relocated to the opulent city of Divinity’s Reach in Kryta. It is here you will start out as a human character.

Mirage, Wonder & Front Mission 2 for me. I'm waiting on to see how that PS5 refresh turns out before buying a PS5 so no sense in getting Spider-Man 2 for me right now.


Starfield Originally Had More "Complex" And "Punitive" Punishing System In Place

But instead they opted to dial it down for the convenience of the players.

Ala dumbed it down for the masses. Hate when devs do that. You could tell in fallout 4. I got over 1k hours into it and enjoyed it but playing the older ones and comparing it definitely felt dumbed down

That's how i feel about all Bethesda games after Morrowind. I enjoyed that game because it was challenging. It was rewarding to level up, find better gear, and then be able to survive in tougher areas.

Oblivion enemies scale with the player and they just seemed dumbed down. After going into one Oblivion portal I never found any armor or weapons that was better than what i found there. I spent 90% of the game using that gear. It got very boring because it wasn't as challenging and the gear was almost all garbage which really didn't matter.

I can understand why they did it. Needing multiple suits for different environments, constantly getting afflictions from those harsh planets, having to keep tons of meds on hand for different afflictions, etc, could get very tedious and annoying over that many hours.

Though I think a compromise would be some sort of hardcore mode that adds some of that, but keep it dialed back enough that it doesn't ruin the experience.

but then thought

"meh all this depth to our game is too dumb and too difficult and too deep, lets dumb it down*

Weaker AI, dumbed down system, 30fps, all design choices.

And that's why Bethesda Will never again make a top tier RPG. Whenever they como UP with some " little more complex" and interesting mechanic, they will think about casuals and do something easy and "with no salt".

Can't decide whether or not to buy it...

Is it more rpg or is it more mosou

phoenixwing2h ago(Edited 2h ago)

i have slow internet so i'm still downloading it. i've always mentioned how slow my internet is on here. even though the game is 20gb it'll take 10 hours to download. what pushed me to download it was the fact it had an open world city in it. i thought that was cool and hoped it was more rpg side than mosou side
