In my earlier post about all the great things happening in MMO’s, I KNEW I would forget some great stuff. And I did. One of the awesome announcements was shown to me by Jay Jay the Wonder Biscuit, and it seems that they might be putting in some great wandering PVE mobs in the game!
I liked DF when I played it, but to be honest I got sick of the useless chat and the useless dorks running around all the time. The difference between DF and, let’s say EVE, is that CCP was smart to allow players to avoid PVP altogether. PVP is like anything else, fun for a bit, but not something to do during every gaming session. Ironically, there is nothing more immersion-breaking than PVP, especially the kind in DF (you die, you get up, you die, you get up…a FPS basically) but it is set alongside some great environments and systems. Now if they pull off this expansion and add cool PVE mobs, you could actually find plenty to do in the game besides getting annoyed at 18 year old boys that like Slipknot.
It’s good to see the developers be OK with their status as a niche game, and to see them just go to work. How long has the game been out, and how much have they done to it? Brilliant.
I wish the game lots of luck, and hope it sticks around. At this rate, the game will really shine in a year.
