I wrote a review of Prime here if you're interested: https://www.reddit.com/r/MMORPG/comments/8bqpax/rift_prime_one_month_review/
A-Bomb to League of Legends. I never get angry in video games. Ever. If I'm not having fun then I have no reason to play. I've never been able to empathise with people who become grossly toxic. LoL, however, does something to me that I wish I could forget, avoid or overcome. But I can't. I play one game, feel that toxicity begin to simmer deep down inside and I have to stop playing for months to ensure I don't become one of 'those' people.
Here's my prediction for Radical Heights in three words: Early. Access. Limbo.
People will play the game. No doubt. In fact I think it will do fairly well if development is steady and content is polished. However I can't help but think that releasing a game THIS early to the public means it will never really be released. We will find it under the Early Access tab on Steam for months to come and not only does that bring along it's own stigma, it also gives the Devs an excuse to fall back on whenever they screw up or make an unfavorable development decision - It's a crutch that I don't feel confident about supporting personally. Good luck to the Devs though, seems that people are enjoying the game overall and that's all that matters.... I am a sucker for that 80's A E S T H E T I C
