I'm probably too late for the show but:
DABOMB: Troy working on a Fractured Online first look, look forward to hearing his thoughs i've been watching his stream of the game.
ABOMB: Waiting patiently for the first look :)

QOTW: My hope is ArcheAge2 is what ArcheAge 1 was supposed to be a crafting based MMO without the labor system or at least a non exploitable labor system.

Da bomb for me waiting on getting a PS5 so I can now look forward to the beefier and better PS5 Pro next year. (Speculated)

QotW: I am cautiously looking forward to ArcheAge 2, as I did enjoy my time in the first one...for a while. But before I jump head long into it, I need to see 3 things:
1) No labor system. I can chop trees and smelt ore all day long in any other given good MMO, but ArcheAge limited how much per day without spending cash shop money on replenishing potions.
2) Any land acquired needs to be tax free. It was ridiculous to have to log in almost daily or weekly to pay tax to keep my land in good standing or risk losing it. Maybe I want to take an extended break from the game, I should be able to expect to have what I did when I leave
3) More plentiful land options so tax system isnt needed to offer spots. And maybe just maybe quotas. Where at max each player can only own x amount of space.

QotW: To be fair and honest I don't have much to say about ArcheAge I installed the game and pretty much uninstalled 30 minutes later. Don't have much hope in ArcheAge 2 seeing how the original didn't do anything for me.

Da Bomb to Fortnite, the no build mode gives me a chance against those that have mastered the build portion of the game (which I have not). Haven't played for about 2 years, good golly have they added things into the BR mode!
