I miss mods and dedicated servers.

There's your reason why. If your franchise is built on the concept of releasing a new game every year, with DLC that adds new guns in between, you can sure as hell bet you'll be competing with mods for content, and AAA publishers can't take that kind of heat.

How is the Viggen, Xeno? Did you order it?

No, I've been trying to finish Tyranny in the limited time I have each week.

For Honor is good for what it is. Really hope the p2p stuff is gone by retail.

Vvardenfel 99% confirmed for ESO for 15th anniversary of Morrowind (May 2017). From datamining, its just as big as the original game (the central volcano area is off limits though for lore reasons). One Tamriel did a great job refocusing the PvE into a great leveling+better endgame experience. PvE still needs some work. Actually excited for the housing next month as it has a full editor where you can place whatever--people have made labyrinths and stuff.

what are you teasing? #Dragons?!

How is it? I am looking to it from some time but I wasn't very convinced.

ESO is still popular?

Goes to show MMORPG's can be the most dull thing in the planet and people will still obsesses over them!

It's really fun, the ending are rushed and abrupt though. Which seems to be a re-occurring thing for Obsidian games.

Had a fair bit of fun with for honor, now that the beta is is finished.

Spoiler : Pro's :
- Controls are actually quite nice, combat is deep and engaging.

- Every faction oozes personality, all feel unique.

- Animation's and graphics are top notch.

- Gameplay is rather new and interesting.


Spoiler : Con's :
- Unbisoft servers are trash, Ubisoft P2P is even more trash, ever 2nd or 3rd game was basically unplayable with the inglorious amounts of lag I had.

- Some of the special moves seem more fitting for street fighter than For Honor, they seem rather cheap too.

- UI is god awful

- Tutorials are pretty terrible.


This would be a definite buy for me had it not been forced into U-play and Ubisoft servers, they're just not reliable enough to warrant my confidence.

People keep complaining about Orochi and Peacekeeper. idk, every class feels like it has a cheap gimmick. They could probably stand to nerf the bleed damage on the PK triple stab though, and I mained her through the beta lol. Its a lot of damage that they can only counter if they manage to hit the guard break.
