    First of all, I’m super excited for all the Secret World news! For the question of the week: Customization. If I can spend hours with a calculator tool theorycrafting and toying with builds to find exactly what I want to do, then it’s all for me. I don’t care about being the absolute optimum build, but I want the option to play around and find what’s fun! It’s why RIFT and TSW are among the games I always come back to. Secondarily, if the game doesn’t have that but does have unique classes (i.e. Allods’ Psionicist or PWI’s Venomancer) it has a good chance of getting me to stick around at least for a while.

    PS – *slaps Magicman on the wrist* No. No. Bad. No terrible movie references in relation to my comments!

    Hey guys, The Secret World? When it’s Free to Play! Revelation Online? When it’s Free to Play! Tree of Savior? It didn’t pull me in because the controls and server issues and also because you’re expected to do a “class mix up” but the game doesn’t specify really well what each class does, it really felt like a shot in the dark from the point that you’d have to re-roll a char until you hit the way you like.
    Da-Bomb to Story and Co-Op games that are revised and reworked to be more engaging, the internet’s full of PVP ego boosters and the world needs to drop the agressive competitiveness a bit, people spend too much time pulling everyone down to be on top when instead they should work together a bit more and these games hit people in their early years and can easily determine their mindset towards the future (something for devs to think a bit instead of cash for a new pair of shoes).
    A-Bomb to websites being bought by game companies, I removed MMOGames from my bookmarks. If I want the perspective of a company about their own game I visit the game’s website and if I want other people’s perspective I visit news websites and forums BUT most of all I do NOT want or care for a company’s perspective about other games. Also something that boggles my mind, A-Bomb to Star Citizen, 144+ Million Dolars by today’s stats and STILL nothing to show the world besides bits and parts, this has been dragging for how many years now? I don’t want an answer, I just want people to think what’s going on there and what might come out of it or NOT.
    QotW, If things are “slick”, you convene a goodish story and if on top that you announce a good system that seems engaging to play with friends, I’ll be there.

    I must give an A-Bomb to Revelation Online also. Not because the game sucks, but the laziness of the team that was in charge of localization. The only thing they did was get rid of the Russian language. Like Really? They had 3 closed betas!!! What did they do that whole time? Masturbate?
    QoTW: I love MMOs that allow me to choose what role I want to play in whatever class I play. Take ESO for example. I’m a sorceress, yet I have heavy armor and I also dual wield. But if I want I can literally play whatever I want. I will never be locked in to one class. I think Final Fantasy 14 does this though I’m not sure, haven’t played it a while.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
