  1. Age of Wulin/Wushu

    Played it and uninstalled within the day. Combat i thought was really badly done :pokeeyesout:
  2. F2P rumors.

    Thank you my good sir :joss_stick: Rumors are rumors and frankly, I can brush these ones off my shoulder :hungry:
  3. F2P rumors.

    Errr, Where did you get your 100% fact (opinion) that it's going to be F2P 'till level 16 :amazed:
  4. F2P rumors.

    "The big question, though, is whether and how we’re going to have to pay for it. “We haven’t worked on the business model yet,” says Gollon, “but we’re working with the developers to have flexibility as to what the business model could be.” Which means this could be NCsoft’s first free launch… though there’s no such thing as a free launch." Taken from PCgamer's review on Blade and soul... Free launch *Bah* even I don't think so :confident:
  5. How to 'Rekindle the Hype'.

    I swear, if they come out and say "Oh hey guys, just to let you know we haven't been working on BnS for the past 2 months cause we're working on something else that you all will like much better, that will come out in the next 4 years.. Stay Tuned :big_smile: " Ima gona :yell: :bowling: :sob: :oops: :ouch: :what:
  6. Mmm, Is this real or not?

    Oh I full well know that the game won't launch 10 days from now, just wondering if this could be a sign of possible info being brought out, although this is completely me grasping at straws :surrender:
  7. Valentine's Day Doboks!

    My eyes didn't blink once through that whole video, was really entrancing with "The Hips, the Hips :feel_good: ", the "Jiggly Jiggly :dreaming: ", Want to jump in the game right nao :hehe:
  8. Was just looking up about blade and soul info, to see if any info has actually been released and found this http://games.gamepressure.com/game_info.asp?ID=11980 It gives a release date O.o :what: for the 26th of Feb But I highly doubt it, although I would say it would be a more likely date for info to come out. Even so it could all be a miss-understanding and a mistake on the websites' behalf. :ouch: Give some of your views to this and don't get hyped up or anything like that. :cold:
  9. Some kinda vote

    Is it not where you bet on a side then, you PvP Arena and the amount of wins you get for your side is what is tallied up? ... seems logical. :ouch:
  10. I totally know what you mean, you should just say, "Well hey look, do you not see the amount of exercise my arms are getting, these are real guns, takes years to get these, and look at you what your doing, anal crunches on the porch / TV" :misdoubt: (Oh no he didn't) :confident: (Yes I did) :brick: (Oww)
  11. They seem to have plenty of time on their hands making deals but obviously that makes them incapable of putting out any info to NA / EU audiences ugh... :confuse: Back to topic though, I'm lovin' the new engine :dribble: (Imaging BnS on the Unreal Engine 4) :dreaming: Thanks for this post
  12. Valentine's Day Doboks!

    :cry: Meh Understandz :cry:
  13. Valentine's Day Doboks!

    Mmm it's not actually porn :feel_good: Its the fact that this game is based on a Manga / Manhwa artist and the culture that surrounds that is surrounded in ecchi / perverted drawings but since it attracts a huge section of of that culture of which is Korea, they don't see it really in that way as westerners who are unfamiliar with that kind of thing take a more backed-off approach. :sweats: I can understand where your coming from though regarding this but i don't see it getting any "less slutty" anytime soon :hehe: I personally love it :haha:
  14. Option to turn off smilies

    Why would you want to do that? :gloomy: , they make forums look more appealing and give people a bit more fun when writing them :shakehead: Why do they annoy you so? :adore:
