    • CoH was still in the era of MMO-newness and I remember discovering how much it paid off to play a female character. Me and a friend made our scantily clad heroes and had everyone helping us and giving us tips XD. It def was fun, I guess now that I think about it that's probably where B&S got inspiration from, and even Saints Row 4. Running around the city super fast and jumping half way across the map was a blast. Even with lackluster graphics, the movement and combat was extremely good for the time. I regret not playing it more now that I think back on it.

      I've heard Tera's optimization is an atrocity and if it wasn't for that a lot of people would still be playing it. Its pretty hard to find something new to play in the MMO genre. As someone pointed out in a video a few days ago, all the ones that are going on strong all came out between 2006-2013. Virtually everything else has been a flop since then. Every time I try something new I enjoy it for a short bit and then get bored and go back to GW2. As much as I love GW2 and the 3000+ hours I've put into it, its finally gotten a bit old to where I don't really enjoy it as much as I use to unless new content is released. Plus their refusal to upgrade to the latest DX or any DX that isn't so CPU intensive as DX9 is really crippling the game's performance with every new update they tact on to the code. I really want to play Lost Ark though just because it looks like flashy Diablo, but it will probably be deep into 2020 if it ever comes stateside which is a shame. I'd pay a sub for something like that. BDO looks so appealing with its graphics, and combat system, but the whole controversy with the cash shop and grind has kept me away from even considering it. I couldn't dedicate my time like that to it. I'd kill for something that has combat like BDO and movement like Blade & Soul... holy shit B&S' moment was so fucking good.. but that's about all that was good about it.

      Right now I'm playing around with Soulworker out of boredom until Anthem releases to carry me into The Division 2. Talk about repetitive, it reminds me of City of Heroes but with anime girls instead. XD Ah City of Heroes/Villains, those were the days.

      I never had any trouble running TERA on my laptop back when I played it. In fact it was probably one of the best running F2P MMO's I've ever played. Then again this was 4-5 years ago so things may have changed for the worst since then. Honestly when I played BDO I never paid attention to that shit. The grind does kinda suck once you get higher in level but the cash shop never once bothered me. In fact I should log in again and play it because the combat system is probably one of the best out there outside of TERA's.

      I actually miss CoH/CoV. It was one of the first MMO's to drag me away from WoW for an extended period of time. True it wasn't one of the best MMO's out there but it was fun while it lasted (I still have my physical copy of CoV somewhere in my closet).

      I'll agree though it's difficult to find anything worth while in the MMO genre (especially since everything is pretty much a copy of the successful MMO's). Everything plays the same, nothing is really changed outside of a few mechanics, etc. As much as I love FFXIV I am burned out and only log in for weekly housekeeping duties atm (currency grind and capping, gearing my Samurai, and a few other things) but I still love the game after 2800+ hours and can't imagine no playing it. Luckily we have a patch in about a month or so (after Tokyo fanfest) so I'll finally have things to keep me interested again.

    • I'm sure Astellia Online will be a better MMO than Fallout 76. (I can't confirm that, because I'm not dumb enough to buy Fallout 76 for the PC.)

      I have yet to play an (actual) MMO that I like more than ESO on PS4 (before I sold that console). I also played STO & Neverwinter on PS4, but never got hooked onto their gameplay mechanics. I tried GW2 & Champions Online for PC but quickly got bored of them. IF ESO ever came to the Nintendo Switch it would either be a dream come true or my waking nightmare (Skyrim pun not intended) as I was addicted to ESO's microtransactions.

      There is also Crossout I played on PS4, but I don't think of it as a real MMO. I miss the car I built that I nicknamed The Wallflower.

      Come on drive a little! Nothing last forever! There's got to be something better than in the middle! But me & Cinderella put it all together! We can drive it home with One Headlight.

      I got the lyrics wrong, but refuse to correct them as this sounds more about a vehicle than the correct lyrics.

      Anthem isn't perfect. It probably should have been delayed another 6-8 months, but its a hell of a lot of fun. I just find it funny how Destiny can rack up big review scores with the similar issues and significantly less content. The popular thing to do right now is crap on EA, and its justified... but it'll be a shame if this game gets the plugged pulled on it early. There is a lot of potential here to fill the gap until the next gen consoles come. Arekkz has the most realistic take on the game, the rest of the YT community is just spitting out talking points which is kinda sad too see since they're suppose to be the alternate to big game sites.

      Last Spring was an anime season of epicness. This season is of charm and adorableness. Meiji Tokyo Renka, My Roommate is a Cat, The Quintessential Quintuplets, and ENDRO have all captured my heart and they're not even my favorites this season. I'll def have my work cut out for me doing a full review at the end.

      I've been sick as hell for the last 5 days now. Damn sinus infection has wrecked me. At least I got some time in on God of War. Damn that game is amazing.

      I finally passed the anime in the AoT manga. This next half of season 3 is probably going to end before they explain everything, where the titans came from, the world outside the walls, and how everything happened. It's interesting, but I feel like it makes the series lose a major component which was the mystery of why anything was happening. The anime is about to get as intense as season 1 was, but after that I can see people getting bored with the next season unless the really fly through this section of explanations. I don't think they will though because the anime has been the manga verbatim.

      Totally hyped for the new expansion for FFXIV, Shadowbringers, after this mornings announcements at the Fan Fest in Paris. We're getting a 24-man raid devoted to Nier called YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse and Yoko Taro is overseeing its creation, fucking sweet. It's supposed to further the Nier story as well (and if the concept art is to be believed it's sometime after the Automata storyline).
      Say what you will about FFXIV but god damn do we get some awesome shit due to Square-Enix properties and their connections. I just fucking hope I can finally get my 2B glamour I've been wanting for my character. This just mean I need to quit being lazy and beat Automata before October (when this should probably launch since the expansion comes out in July).
