With next gen consoles almost here, Blade and Soul needs to make an appearance soon

83 posts in this topic

Getting upgrades every year for your computer will be worse.

Currently what im seeing consoles are being released almost every year so to say that a computer is worse is just retarded.And you can easily build a computer that can last 5 years just fine.

Let's keep it civil, there is no need for name calling. As far as the upgrades are concerned; the current generation of consoles have been out for 6 years already. PC has its place but so do consoles. Different mentalities and fanbase. PC players feel like buying a console + games is a waste of money. Console players feel buying/building a PC with lack of substantial triple A games per year is a waste of money and time. You never see a "bored" console gamer for a reason, consoles get more games per year (new games) than PC does.

It's the same Democrat-Republican debate. The same Microsoft-Apple debate. Same world, different mentalities. Trying to impose our own will onto the opposite side will never ever work.

Instead we should focus on B&S and how it could release on consoles or how console games can/will affect it. It won't affect B&S since it's an mmorpg but it can help it if NCsoft does create and release it for consoles. Best to hold off until next gen consoles though and those are around the corner starting next year.

FFXIV will feel this very much, just the fact that console players can play and access it is a huge plus.

You're either going to do some research or stop talking on this subject all together. Doesn't make you look good to keep repeating the same nonsense over and over again.

You never see a bored Console gamer? Where the hell do you get all this non-sense for the love of common sense stop it.

There were so few exclusive titles last year, not to mention PC already gets tons of it's own Triple A games. Just stop.

Slim versions aren't new consoles though. That people get if they want or if they don't already own the system.

From my observation I notice a trend where PC gamers are always bored waiting for the next big game. That isn't the point of my entire post though. It's nice of you to take snippets of it though.

Outside of mmorpgs I would like you to actually list pc exclusives (triple A) titles that would make anyone choose a PC over a console. That list most likely doesn't go all the way to 10 or limited to 2 genres.

We can actually have a good discussion about this instead of getting all worked up :laugh: Seriously, there's no point in a reply full of rage.

A major advantage to the PC is the continuous content being released. A game I play is World of Tanks, and there has been DOZENS of significant content updates since its release in 2010, and its unlikely to stop. It is a VERY different game from release, consoles can't say the same beyond balance patches. This somewhat counterbalances the "quantity" of games that consoles get.

As for pc specific games that people might be interested..... there are hundreds. The most obvious ones being specifically MMOs or RTS since those are not usually seen on consoles with a few exceptions. As for other games you have arena based action games, shooters and single player RPGs.

World of tanks is a good example of a game that is unique to both consoles and PC, but you also have games like S4 League, Gunz, Mech Warrior Online, and hawken that exist outside of the two PC "exclusive" genres(RTS/MMO)

As for cost. Lets say you have a college student, he has just graduated high school and is getting ready to move into a dorm(typical gamer material). He is interested in purchasing a game system. However, he has no tech going into college, so he must budget his savings carefully. What can he do?

Some options....

OPTION 1: Buy a console and a cheap computer

OPTION 2: Buy a console but skip the computer-who needs school anyway

OPTION 3: Buy/make a gaming computer

Probably not a huge gap between 1 and 3 in price.....

Also final point- STEAM-nuff said

It's not rage, it's pure disappointment, you keep disappointing me and I don't know why I keep expecting better. But that's it though. I don't expect anything sensible from you anymore on this sort of topic.

Also I don't agree with exclusives, and any sensible developer wouldn't want to make an exclusive title unless they are bound by a contract (Bayonetta on WiiU) or it's an in house title. (Nintendo) Still think the entire exclusive thing is a dead weight on the market.

Sensible developers for PC titles (as well as consoles) would avoid it because you want the largest market and the largest possible profit.

We'd do better to look at the Triple A games made for PC then restrained to work on old arse console hardware.

There are TONs look at any big steam sale check the developer bundles.

But yeah disappointed so I've decided not to expect anything sensible from you on this topic.

I mean you also seem to have this delusion that MMOs are the only titles on PC. Hilarious.

We can agree to disagree. I'm here to discuss but you seem to want to impose your will on others; being dismissive and completely not engaging the points presented. I do understand and respect your points however (this is how discussions should be).

The point about exclusives and "developer in their right mind" is a point that could bring about a good discussion. On this point I'll say that from all the years of gaming, exclusives end up as the most memorable, best rated, and acclaimed games known. From the Mario games on NES to the Crash Bandicoot, Gran Turismos, Halos, Zeldas, and Uncharteds. There are always good multiplatform games but when a gamer chooses a system over the others; exclusives undoubtedly is one of, if not the first thing they think about. What am I missing if I get a PC over a ps3, wii, or 360. We might not like the idea of exclusives but it's a part of development and the gaming world, and as games like Journey shows it's here to stay. But I want you to note how in this entire paragraph I haven't bashed, belitted, or dismissed PC or its gamers.

What would be better is to focus on the possibility of B&S on consoles (I've said this line like 400 times already :laugh: )

Good for NCsoft, they should follow SE's lead with what they're doing with FFXIV.

About the main topic, No i don't think new consoles will affect B&S in the slightest... why would they?

Not when you play fighting games. Ghastly was talking about SFIV, in that matter the only thing better than a pad is an arcade stick. For me consoles are all about fighting games and PC is just about B&S. (pc gamers only play fps, tps, mmo, rts and things like that )

I have my fears that this game will not come out in the west and even if it does the only possible formats are B2P or F2P.

Tera offering a lot the same elements and aiming to the same group of players as this game kinda blocks out any possibility for P2P.

NCSoft having not said a thing towards us in last few months points to the game being stalled/very far from ready/cancelled.

As people have already said in this thread, there are intense MMORPG titles coming out and this game is losing it's hype day by day.

I don't know id this is stated on this post yet, but I was to lazy to read through all of them so I will say it anyway.

First of all, blade and soul shouldn't be on consoles if you ask me.

I mean every consoles has their own exclusives, which I hate, since I don't own a console (except the ps vita, but that a replacement for my old smartphone, now I use a simple nokia instead with 1 week battery life)

So I see MMO's as an exclusive for PC's. And if they would release for consoles too, the release date will be delayed too, so I don't want it at all.

Besides from that, you stated on this topic that it has to make an appearance with the next gen console. Well that would be for commercial purposes only, since blade and soul doesn't have any content considering next gen graphics.

It should have at least some directx11 aspects like tessellation, or using huge amounts of particles. set aside these are actually 3 years old. So unless it has no next gen graphics content to show, there is no reason for it to make an appearance accordingly.

I wouldn't worry to much about TERA, because it's player base isn't going to be the most loyal of playerbases in the end. They'll go in, see it's pretty, and then realize it's for the most part a solo game, and last I recall (someone can correct me if I'm wrong) it still lacks many RP emotes (like walking).

I love TERA, but once my friends left and I was left with just the playerbase, the game became way less fun. May be easy enough to solo the content, but when you find every guild is about level 60 play, ignoring lower level members, it will draw people away. Haven't been able to get back into TERA and I had at least one friend return to TERA (before it went F2P).

But the real question is that will people pay for B&S when Tera is free.

BnS has the much better customization, I think that will go over a long way. Not to mention, TERA is free, so they can play BnS and always go back to the free game.

DANG! So i finally got around to re-reading this thread again and stumbled across the spat between Shinaji and Ghastly....

Feel like I'm playing with fire doing this but w/e.

Gotta say for being just "dissapointed", Shinaji, your post was pretty umm.... angry sounding- not that I don't agree with some earlier points made, but it was definitely an attack. Might I recommend anger management.....

And you Ghastly, I don't care if you did or did not insult Shinaji... the starting of your post...

"We can agree to disagree. I'm here to discuss but you seem to want to impose your will on others; being dismissive and completely not engaging the points presented. I do understand and respect your points however (this is how discussions should be)."

Sorry but you sound like an arrogant jerk trying to make yourself seem civil, all the while throwing out snide remarks (IE. told ya so).

Expect a bit more maturity from the staff but hey... can't have everything.

On another note...

As much as I am looking forward to BnS, I believe the main selling point to the game(and almost exclusive selling point) is the unique combat system... but to the average person who doesn't want to spend time researching game mechanics, it will just look like any other asian themed mmo with cool animations, and given the choice between Tera(free to play) and Archeage(great graphics and sandbox elements) I feel BnS may get passed over, unless some hardcore marketing is done.

I am honestly interested in Blade and Soul simply for the art and animations. I would still play this game if it was a basic clicker, but the fact that it has a unique combat system and seemingly fun PvP is a plus as well. People look for different things in their MMOs.

That being said, the reason I have my doubts about MMOs on consoles is because MMOs are a bit tricky to configure for the static specs and architecture of consoles. Meaning that you'd have to test all the different possibilities of stressful situations which include player congestion if you're aiming for a QA product. Hell, even some i7s humble in the face of player traffic in different MMOs. Combine that with the time it takes to properly optimize for said console configuration and you have a doozy on your hands. Just look at how FFXIV 2.0 is going for the PS3 if you want a current example.

I don't particularly think we'll be seeing B&S specifically on consoles anytime soon. KR operates differently than JP after all.

KTCraft, that's just humans being humans :laugh:

I agree that it should've been dropped in the beginning by both sides but this is just like politics, the pc and console debate will never end well, ever.

But I end my posts the same way, staying true to the topic. B&S on console would be amazing and a great opportunity. Square-Enix is going to do that and succeed. NCsoft will not. I get a feeling FFXIV will live for 10 or so years like FFXI.

i prefer to upgrade my PC than buy new gen console.these things will cost w a y more than $500 and game prices will be like buying 2 pc games

(pc gamers only play fps, tps, mmo, rts and things like that )

i play every game with keyboard,aside fighting games that i don't like.its easier to play Kingdom of Amalur,Darksiders 2,ACR/3 with keyboard..i wanted to buy ps4,but,if ps3 cost around €300 and its out for soooooooo loooooong,i don't wanna know how much ps4 or 720 and their games will cost.in 1-2 year after their release that price will be be kinda cheaper maybe i'll buy

considering that Sony had a press conference for the PS4 it isnt really "almost here" they are well within the foreseeable future. I dont know about alot of you, but personally I have stopped caring. I'll be back around when I hear a Alpha/CB Date till then my attention span has been exhausted by them so I'm off.

Ps4 is said to come out sometimes around Christmas and 720 rumored the summer.
