  1. 3 years.. ive been waiting.

    Been waiting almost 5 years... Hype is gone for me. Not even slightly excited about the release. Not even sure if I'll play it anymore. We'll see.
  2. B&S in the EU/US ? Q1 2015. That's my prediction (at the earliest). But I'm being quite optimistic here... Realistic prediction ... Q2 2015.
  3. Damn it. I'm about to delete my account here and stop visiting this site... Reason being, the more I know about B&S the less likely I'm going to play it. It seems like this is another game that doesn't have any end game whatsoever, there's no meaning to having a clan, no point in making pvp. There are easy dungeons and there's just not a lot to do in general once you hit max lvl. Which means that you'll get bored in 2-3 months and start looking for another MMO. Same story as with S.W.T.O.R, TERA Online or GW2, just to name few of them. I really miss a game like Lineage 2 - a grinder, with hard to achieve max level (and sub levels once you hit those), with open pvp, with no god damn factions (nothing pisses me off more than a guy that's annoying, but I can't kill him, cause he is on my side) or instances, but with battles for raid bosses. Stuff that makes me want to log in game and just play. It seems like all games now are doing exactly the same thing: 1. Follow amazing story quests up to max lvl (less than a week) 2. Run end game instances (month) 3. Do some battlegrounds (2 weeks) 4. hmm... Yeah, there's nothing left to do. 5. /quit Rinse and repeat. Sad. =/
  4. Tera Online

    Playing TERA currently... It's quite fun. Game hasn't really changed much since the Focus Grup Tests I've participated in. Playing on this new pvp server, Balder or smth.. Server started no more than month ago - so, even tho the game is over 1 year old, it feels like a fresh start.
  5. CONFESSIONS

    Sometimes I don't wash my hands after peeing.
  6. League Of Legends

    Lee Sin, Nunu, Shyvana. I used to play either jungle or support. Made playing single Q viable, since nobody likes to play jungle/support. :-) Kinda stopped logging in recently, enough's enough.
  7. Wildstar

    There are gameplay videos on youtube from WildStar... And it's not non-target, it's a standard combat system. Same old, same old...
  8. Wildstar

    This game is going to be such a flop. Gonna get hyped up like Rift, Tera and SWOTR and then fail. Nothing innovative, nothing ground breaking, nothing interesting... I wonder why do people get excited about yet another WoW clone? At least Tera had non targeting combat system... The rest is exactly the same shit.
  9. Bots & Hackers already

    Get used to it... It's only going to get worse. Game is made by NCSoft after all. One of the worst, if not the worst, company ever, when it comes to bot/cheat policy. They will do nothing to stop it, not even to prevent it, because then they would lose profit. I remember what they've done with Lineage 2, don't expect anything different here.
  10. Amazing.... I wish I could have access to the CBT.... Oh well, going to play the shit out of Diablo III, while waiting for B&S.
  11. This is 4th person, that is leaving this kind of stuff on my profile. First they add me to friends and then write those annoying letters, like I'm going to send them money. Maybe restrict sending PMs untill 10 post count or so?
  12. Battlefield 3 Open Beta... Not bad, not bad at all....

  13. Battlefield 3 Alpha iz good.

    1. Hyu

      Hyu

      How do you know?

      Abuse

      Was playing Alpha for almost two weeks. :)

  14. Witcher 2 .... can't... stop... playing....

      Will soon start my 2nd run, I just hope that I'll get separate save files, so that when The witcher 3 hits shelves in 2020, I can select which story I want to "continue".

      - Lith. ...Planner.
