    [–] What is the next big MMO? kleenexuser12 16 points ago in MMORPG

    The only way we have a decent game coming out in this genre in 2019 is if someone surprises us with a project that they were keeping secret.

    I'm not a negative person, I'm not saying it from the "everything sucks" perspective, it's just a bad lineup this year. Astellia will probably be the biggest release, and it really doesn't even look that fun.

    [–] Camera video lag kleenexuser12 2 points ago in GooglePixel

    I just saw this two days ago for the first time. I don't take a lot of videos so I was very disappointed. I hope we see a fix for that soon, we know the hardware can handle this.

    [–] Hnnnnggg this Pixel 4 design is just kleenexuser12 1 points ago in GooglePixel

    I would definitely trade that center notch for a camera hole in the corner. It doesn't bother me that much, but that looks way more attractive.

    [–] More effective assistant? kleenexuser12 1 points ago in GooglePixel

    Works so well for me that I can talk to it in another room while I'm in the shower. Can barely hear it but it does what I ask it to every time. Any significant accent or perhaps noises near the devices?

    [–] Pixel 3 tremendous slow down? kleenexuser12 1 points ago in GooglePixel

    Had the phone for a little over a month now, just started noticing this last week.

    [–] I am incredibly loyal to google and the pixel but man that apple card... kleenexuser12 6 points ago * (lasted edited 19 hours ago) in GooglePixel

    It was the highlight of their event for me. I've been using privacy.com for something similar though. The physical card part is really the interesting thing for sure.

    Too bad Apple can't beat Google on the camera though, even with superior camera hardware (portrait mode is where I do my comparisons). That's why I'm rocking the Pixel 3 XL.

    Downvoted by a religious Apple fanboy I guess. Didn't know those still existed. What a weird sub for them to troll.

    [–] Best mmo on console? kleenexuser12 0 points ago in MMORPG

    BDO is my current favorite on Xbox. The game feels like it was made for a controller, to me. ESO is second in line.

    I don't like Neverwinter but those who do like it, they really seem to praise it, so it's definitely worth seeing if you might be one of those people.

    Tera, I like the controls but the cash shop is even more intrusive than BDO to me.

    [–] [Preview]My friend, and his crew are making an MMORPG. kleenexuser12 1 points ago in MMORPG

    I absolutely love being blindsided by a game that I've heard zero about, and can already see visual representations of at the same time.

    Best of luck on this, and definitely count me in.

    [–] Everquest 2 new Server worth playing? kleenexuser12 2 points ago in MMORPG

    You have to pay a subscription. Someone will call any game pay to win but no it's not pay to win.

    [–] Everquest 2 new Server worth playing? kleenexuser12 7 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in MMORPG

    We're all having a blast on it. I spent 4 hours the other night in a dungeon with a pick up group, just exploring and killing everything (they're deep and not linear).

    I haven't had this much fun in a game in a while. I know people predict the server will die, and maybe it will, but I wouldn't trade fun today for "might not be fun tomorrow." Join in and contribute to it not dying :)

    Edit: most players don't use steam

    [–] Need your Honest and Unbiased opinion on World of Warcraft kleenexuser12 0 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in MMORPG

    I don't care if my opinion is popular or if it receives a million downvotes.

    I propose that WoW is objectively one of the better (recognizing the mixture of absolute and relative language) games available right now in terms of population and a clean, polished experience.

    I dislike it not because it's objectively bad, but because it's a shell of what it used to be. I miss what it used to be. I can't get past that.

    [–] Daily users for Albion Online seem to go up. Why go f2p? kleenexuser12 1 points ago in MMORPG

    I'll pay for one as soon as they don't try to charge me the price of NYC rent to feed the kids ;)

    [–] Google just announced a game platform that could revolutionize MMOs kleenexuser12 1 points ago in MMORPG

    It's all about investment, and Google has the resources. Granted, they also have an incredible habit of making or buying cool things and then abandoning them, so take it all with a grain of salt.

    That said, I'm excited to see a company like Google trying to do something at scale that many have failed to be successful at.

    The current trend of game streaming is literally equivalent to RDP with a remote Windows 10 client, and these startups doing it won't last a decade.

    [–] Graphic Quality: FFXIV or WoW? kleenexuser12 1 points ago in MMORPG

    FFXIV, to me, is the closest I've seen to black desert remastered. The environment is beautiful. The spell effects are obscenely great.

    I've got nothing bad to say about WoW's graphics, I just don't think they compare to FFXIV.

    [–] Regardless of the hate this game has seen over the past 4 years, Albion Online is the number one game for hardcore, full loot PvP and will actually EXCEED expectations when it goes free to play next month (analysis inside). kleenexuser12 1 points ago in MMORPG

    Well I'll tell you this. I liked the game, I have zero problem with paying, but I didn't like it enough to keep paying. It's entirely possible that I would have gotten to that point, had I stuck in there long enough.

    I feel like I'm a prime candidate for free to play adoption, at least to give it a solid second chance.

    [–] For those who still fail to accept how big OSRS is kleenexuser12 2 points ago in MMORPG

    It's definitely not a ghost town, that is certain. I wish I could get into it. If I could bring myself to enjoy the whole top down camera thing, I feel like I'd be entertained by so many great games.

    [–] [Unpopular Opinion] You may not actually like this game genre kleenexuser12 2 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in MMORPG

    If you're burned out from every single game in the genre and your only connection to the genre is a fond memory and an endless string of discontent with every new game, why go through the mental gymnastics of saying you like the genre?

    Genuinely interested. I can't think of a lot of things like that where people so obviously can't find satisfaction in something but continually defend the idea that they like it.

    [–] [Unpopular Opinion] You may not actually like this game genre kleenexuser12 -1 points ago in MMORPG

    I don't need proof to have opinions. Neither does anyone else when they agree. People only ask for proof when they disagree. You're welcome to disagree, no one's holding a gun to your head.

    [–] Weekly Game Recommendation Thread - March 19, 2019 kleenexuser12 3 points ago in MMORPG

    I'm just gonna add a recommendation for anyone:

    EQ2 Kaladim progression server.

    Last night I spent 4 hours in an open dungeon with a group. Exploring, killing things, looting and getting XP. Died a couple of times because strategic pulling was key.

    Tell me the last time you had that much fun in a game. It doesn't have to last forever, it was something I was able to do today, no wishing or hoping for the future.

    [–] Guardians of Ember returns in open beta kleenexuser12 5 points ago in MMORPG

    Hell I'll try anything once. Most of the time only once, but such is life.

    [–] [Unpopular Opinion] You may not actually like this game genre kleenexuser12 1 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago) in MMORPG

    If you can pick up a game in the genre that you enjoy or enjoyed, like anyone can an old FF game at any time, you like the genre. No disputing that.

    If you can't find a game in the MMORPG genre at all that you're willing to play, old or new, you probably don't like the actual genre.

    It doesn't do any good for me to tell my friends that I like pizza when I know for a fact that I'm going to turn down every pizza place that exists, old or new, and give them a long story about why that is. For all intents and purposes, I may as well just not like pizza. I'm not going to eat it, so why cling to the memory?

    It's like refusing to delete that old friend from your contact list that you know darn well you're never going to call again, you just have trouble letting go and accepting reality. Sure you "could" but how many times will you talk yourself out of it before you realize?

    Maybe the genre changes to meet the desires of those who once liked it and don't any longer, but I don't see the industry moving toward that at all.
