I have a A bomb for ya. Nexon North America is long known to have some of the worst customer service and in many ways worse the Aeria. Back in march there was a cbt for Navyfield 2 in the NA. Now Europe already had there version of the cbt by this point and shortly after the NA cbt Europe went live. Now here we are in august and the North American market has not heard a word. What compounds this worse in NA does not have a website, twitter feed, or any other social media presence other then a facebook page, which has been banning people for asking why it takes so long. Now many may say well thats nexon and not worth a A-bomb, but recently it was announced that Navyfield 2 jp is shutting down. If you can bring this up in one of your cast I would appreciate it.

20 vs 20?

Its impossible to get a normal 5 vs 5 running without a leaver, feeder, afk, troll and so on.
NO WAY 20 vs 20 would ever work. Just wont work. Sad world...

Did I miss something or did Aeria games takeover SW:TOR?I recieved a newsletter from them(you play one game from aeria and they keep emailing you forever.)and apparently Aeria games is now handeling SW:TOR.So I guess now it will be both restrictive and p2w.

Call me crazy but I always thought that fable would just work well as an mmo it may be the most cliche thing in the world but I always thought even as a kid that it would be cool seeing other players in my world while I played... They have it all, they have the battle arena where you kill whisper, Jack of Blades just gotta turn him into a raid. Plus you can go through your home town with an obsidian cleaver, convince everyone to follow you behind a building, kill them, buy their house, and put it up for rent would be spectacular!

I agree with Kevin. Riot will most likely get the mobile viewer app first for League.

So I did try EoN out and THANK GOD it's not very MOBA like at all! The only thing I don't like now, is that it doesn't feel like the game I've come to love anymore. I used to enjoy a game called Shattered Galaxies, an OLD Nexon title that featured RTS elements using squads of units. EoN used to remind me of that game in such a great way. Now it just feels bland to me. The hero character I started off with just looked plain silly and just pulled me from the experience and the scale of the battles don't feel as epic as they did before Trion started developing it in house.

So Trion gets an A-bomb from me for pretty much ruining the game that I was looking forward to most of all. I'll lift my boycott from them for avoiding the MOBA(enough) with this title, but they have a ways to go before I decide to actually invest in any of their games.

Great show F2P cast, glad I can be of help.
Got a Da-Bomb this week for Dark Souls. I had to completely scrap my character and start again because I butchered the skill points. Made a pyromancer, focused on endurance and strength. After many many hours of dieing I finally got to the Four Kings, kicked their face in and then killed the final boss after over 20+ deaths just on the final boss. I'm now working on New Game+ and extremely excited for Dark Souls 2. As for my favorite type of ramen... I like shrimp fairly well. Feel like I'm rolling the dice every time I eat ramen shrimp, but its good and I haven't died yet so I'll continue to eat it.
