The games I'm looking forward to are Maple Story 2 and Peria Chronicles. I want a new game (or one that is at least new to the west) that has: a wider variety of content than standard themeparks, doesn't take it self too seriously with an art style to match, and has some form of user created content to keep the game fresh. Peria looks especially awesome as the content creation tools they've shown in a recent video look like legitimate dev tools. My biggest concerns about both boil down to three words: published by Nexon.

i have an A-bomb to Activision Blizzard , mostly because i don't get it ,now that COD BO 4 is on the Blizzard app that that mean that COD is now a canon blizzard universe ? god forking damn it , i hope not . but with all honesty i don't get what activision blizzard is , can someone explain to this dumbass on the internet ?

And a DA-bomb to Heroes of the storm , for the new event , it looks hilariously fun and dumb at the same time , but at the same time an inconvenient A-bombbecause it starts at the same time the overwatch 2 years anniversary starts , well fork ...

QOTW : I wish i could be excided about Lost Ark but for fork sake it was anounced 4 years ago and you hers next to non about the game ,but if it will actually release and it will be free , not like bless , them that will be awesome , i mean just look at the game , it's diablo on coffee , energy drinks and steroids , and besides i lost all hope for a good new free mmorpg .
