DUST 514 News - Ashes to Ashes...

Posted by Suzie Ford on Aug 15, 2013  | Comments

Our intrepid Tourist is ready to take us on a journey through the EVE-connected world of DUST 514. See what he discovered about the world, the game and much more in this week's The Tourist. Leave us your thoughts in the comments!

When CCP first revealed DUST 514, I was more than a little excited. As much as I love MMORPGs, first-person shooters will always be my second love. The idea of one even remotely like EVE Online was music to my ears. For years, shooters have moved closer to the persistence of MMOs, so why shouldn't CCP, legendary in that space, be the ones to make it happen? I had faith and today I am sorely let down. DUST is the result of over-ambition and, I believe, a touch of arrogance that console players would simply accept what they were offering. In short, it's just not very good. Today, I'm here to talk about DUST's fundamental problems and why even a move to PC may not be enough.
