  1. A-bomb to all of the collectible items you can get in MMOs. Event or season exclusive, launch bonuses, content rewards. I love them. I can fill my virtual world with shit I don’t need but really want…. instead of my physical world where it becomes a fire hazard 🙂

    Da-Bomb to a particular younger member of my family who is just getting into online games and also really loves in-game collectibles….. Just because I haven’t logged into that game for 5 years doesn’t mean I’m going to hand you over my in-game collectibles. You’re right, I don’t need them… but I also don’t want to give them to you 🙂

    Genshin Impact review:

    Step 1. Make game that looks like BoTW
    Step 2. Have people keep talking about it looking like BoTW and inadvertently advertise it to wider audience
    Step 3. ??????
    Step 3. PROFIT

    For real though. They did good. Real good.

  2. With the huge success of Genshin Impact I predict tons of cash in attempts on the “MMO but actually singleplayer + gacha paywall for characters” model. It’s going to be the next big thing like mobas, hero shooters and battle royales that the slower companies will still be trying to copy five years from now when it’s too late. If you don’t know what I mean check out Creative Assembly actually still developing a hero shooter and a mobile ccg in 2020.

  3. QotW/A BOMB (the bad one i allways get them confused) : i like genshin inpact in general
    BUT i dont have a standard qwerty keyboard and you CAN’T change the keboard maping
    come on mihoyo its 2020 ffs

    • Cannot change any key binds at the moment, probably on 1.1 they allow us to change them to any key of our liking, it is the same deal for controllers.

  4. Genshin Impact is a good game and was really stupid not to of been a single player game set at a fair price. It would of sold +millions.
    Its a good free game currently and when I call into to play, it stays that way. 🙂
