    • 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.

    • 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.

    • Eh, honestly it looks like every other Korean MMO out there and doesn't look all that fun. Then again I hate buy to play MMO's about as much as I hate free to play MMO's (there has only been two F2P MMO's that I like to this date and those are Star Trek Online (which I have a lifetime membership) and TERA (hell of a fun game but grew old really fast). Plus I do not consider TOR a free to play as, when I do play it, I pay for a subscription. I don't mind BDO but it suffers a lot from what I hate about the buy to play genre as a whole).

      Quite honestly I'll never migrate from pay to play models. Yea monthly fees can suck but I'd rather pay to play a polished game that gets frequent patches and content then buy a game/dl a game and hope that new content and patches come. I'm probably just spoiled by FFXIV's 3 month patch cycle (I get new main story content, side story content, raids, dungeons, etc. every three months. That's really hard to beat) and a 2 year expansion cycle (really for $15 a month that's a fucking steal). That and it's all I've ever known since I started playing MMO's.

      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).

      I'll pass on a review of the Fall simuldub lineup. Mostly because everything I like is bleeding into the new season minus SSSS.Gridman, ZOMBIE LAND SAGA, and Goblin Slayer. There rest was underwhelming, absolute trash, or not dubbed. As someone that enjoys a fanservice fest now and then, I don't get the appeal of SENRAN KAGURA, After 3 eps, I was like "holy shit this is so bad". I guess because it tries to be so serious. Anyways, I watched the first ep of Magical Girl Spec Ops, and it was pretty awesome. I think this is closer to what I was expecting from Raising Project. Seeing a magical girl slice up a bunch of people with a karambit was pretty awesome. Boogiepop and Others is interesting so far so I'll stick with it. Still waiting for Mob Psycho 100 season 2 to start the dub, and I guess I'll ride the hype train for The Rising of the Shield Hero when it starts.
