OP  2/27/14 4:51:57 PM#1

Last fall, I met with the guys from Grinding Gears games shortly before they launched their hit online action RPG, Path of Exile. Four months and five million registered players later, the team stands on the cusp of releasing their first major content update, Sacrifice of the Vaal. I met with Grinding Gears Managing Director Chris Wilson and Path of Exile Technical Director Jonathan Rogers once again this week, and the two filled me in on what we can expect from this first sizable content dump.

Does this game have any sort of customization at all for your characters appearance or is it like the Diablo series where you have a stock look for your character with the exception of your equipment?

No customization. Actually, the character models is the only area of this game I just can't get behind. It is a solid, fun game, but for some reason the armor and characters just look... meh.

Currently playing: Marvel Heroes, DayZ

Waiting for: Repopulation, H1Z1

Customization in APRGs = equipment and builds.  It's basically a rule of the genre, and PoE has the market cornered in that respect.

Cosmetic customization = for scrubs who play MMORPGs.

Oh I love GGG, what a wonderful company willing to go all out to develop new content for their game.


Somebody, somewhere has better skills as you have, more experience as you have, is smarter than you, has more friends as you do and can stay online longer. Just pray he's not out to get you.

I think the point of it is to look meh. I mean,  they are "exiles". Though I do understand where you are coming from. (They do look better down the road at high levels, at least imo).

 

Also you can buy cosmetics if you want to, but they are pretty expensive.

Equipment and skills customization, for people who play the game.

Character cosmetic customization, for people who play "Barbie doll online"

See the difference?

The currency is still orbs, and to be honest, you will get used to it. I hate trading in general, and especially when values are so obscure as in PoE, but I have found it gets a lot better with time. You also don't really need to trade to play through the game, but it will indeed be harder. Imo, not a bad thing.

I would prefer gold too, but the current way makes the game more alive and immersive. 

As for trading, it is a mini game by itself. Frustrating at times, but rewarding if you can figure it out.

You might want to run that thought by the folks at GGG, since their entire cash shop is built around cosmetic customization.

Now who's the scrub, scrub?

I thoroughly enjoyed the game. However, there was a much needed address to the "desync" issue. There was a huge number of skills that were almost unusable due to game desync. Granted there was a work around for this by binding a command that took you out of this, but I found even in the next difficulty level you were dead before you knew you were out of sync.

I currently do not play as this did hurt my personal playing experience, but others have learned to live with it and still find a lot of enjoyment out of the game.

If this desync ever gets fixed PoE would easily be my top pick for ARPG of all time.

First off.. Fix the desync issue.

Secondly.. Change the camera angle.

Desync, clunky animations and uninspired art.  Wish they had a much bigger budget and focused more on aesthetics and gameplay from the start.  But they seem to fill their niche well.

If path of exile fixed It's desync and wonky camera angle, I'd be all over this.
