  1. QoTW: I intend to have fun with the initial hype train, but I’m still cautious about their future payment model and the overall longevity of the game. Perhaps it will have a good future if handled correctly, but based off of their past shenanigans I’m not optimistic. Cmon Turtle, GIVE ME A REASON TO BE OPTIMISTIC!

  2. by looking at this lotr picture of aragorn or something u might think the game is awesome and looks like this lmao

  3. Ffffffuck Evolve! Release a60 dollar game then make you pay for monsters they should have been in the game at launch, that was the reason I didn’t play Rainbow Six Siege. It was cash grab then and it quickly found ways to screw it’s players and it will do the same really soon. just you wait.
