That's a pretty weird reason to discard a game.

I'd understand if someone said "I won't bother with 'x' game because it's made by 'x' studio" but to discard a game purely because it's made in Korea is something I find weird.

I say that because every Korean title that I have ever played has been excessively grindy. Aion was supposed to be the greatest game ever and it ended up having a very bad launch because of the horrible grind. I want a sandbox very bad, so I am putting all of my eggs in the repopulation basket. If Archeage ends up being good after launch, I will give it a shot. But, for now, I have no interest in it.

Know what's funny? Games like the release versions of EQ, SWG, FFXI, and UO were far more grindy than most modern Korean titles, yet people praise them. Go figure.

That's why I didn't like any of those titles except for SWG. But, I preferred the NGE version of SWG. I thought pre-NGE was way too grindy.

 

Don't get me wrong, I want Archeage to do good. The genre needs a lot more sandbox options for folks.

as far as mmo's go... 2014 call me maybe?

till then most likely a few support packs for PoE. The game is indie, but the company has so much potential if they keep getting funded.

WoW sub, Steam sales, new tires for my motorcycle and that's it.

 

Trying to save up for something non game related.

 

No MMO will see my money til Titan releases.

Anything where exploration, action-oriented combat and a good crafting system are the main features.

Relatively Recently (Re)Played: HL2 (all), Halo (PC, all), Batman:AA; AC, ME, BS, DA, FO3, DS, Doom (all), LFD1&2, KOTOR, Portal 1&2, Blink, Elder Scrolls (all), lots more
Now Playing: None
Hope: None

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

Elder Scrolls Online and Neverwinter

 

 

Nothing else has piqued my interest.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

I'll just play free games (for free) and spend my cash on other forms of entertainment.

 

Wow... this hobby really has been hijacked by people that don't honestly and genuinely even like it.

People that don't get enough fun from playing these games to spend even a minimal amount on them (yet who will invest their precious leisure time into them... the mind boggles) and seem to have a deep animosity to what these games fundamentally are.

Worst thing is that folks like the guy above me here are the ones steering the industry.

MMO-wise?

SWTOR and GW2-Exp if it is released this year.

Age of Wushu and probably EVE-Online as well.

 

Non-MMO wise?

PS4 / Xbox720 (or w/e they call the next-gen consoles) and launch titles

Bioshock infinite, Metal Gear Solid Rising, Crysis 3, Dead Space 3, Tomb Raider, SimCity, The Last of Us etc etc etc..

If we were steering the industry they never would have dared put in a dungeon grind in GW2.  

 

Also, if I never wanted to socialize I would just play single player games.  Sometimes I do like to socialize, but I never want it shoved down my throat.  I never want to be forced to.  And that is why I'm done with spending money on MMOs.  In the end, devs always force us to socialize to progress or to protect ourselves from roving gankers or both and that's a stupid formula that does and should limit their profits.  

 

Dear devs, make room for those of us who only socialize when we feel like socializing and not when your game requires a dungeon for a specific piece of gear or we will stop spending our money with you.  Or I will, anyway.

I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals.

SP games. MMOs are mostly F2P now.

May be Marvel Heroes if the game is really good, and i really want to play Iron man.

In terms of mmorpgs, I will probably end up buying Archeage, TESO, and when they come out, , WildsStar, The Black Desert and EQ Next. Hopefully, one of them sticks as something I can play for a few years, if not, I'll be waiting again.....

What happens when you log off your characters????.....

Online games and MMO wise

 

- World of Tanks has already had some cash off me im sure ill spend some more.

- War Thunder, I think this plays a lot better than WOP does.

- World of battleships, wel if this does come out this year then ill be throwing money at that cant bloody wait.

- Heroes and Generals, quite enjoying this in beta at the moment so will probally throw some cash its way on release

- The Repopulation will get some of my cash when its released.

- If Archeage pre-orders go up at the end of the year then some will go to that.

 

Might be some more but not sure..
