Every MMORPG is "another MMO on the pile" for me nowadays, I just try them all and the ones that get me thinking about it during the day are the ones I end up playing along. As for Revelation, aye looking forward to it, it kind of feels like a Aion/Tera mix, it should be fun but as always Asian high end grinding content means nothing to us "westerners" so my left foot is back there on the other room.
As for Bombs, A-Bomb for "hype" I just can't get it anymore since everything I look in the gaming industry seems a rehash or a remake or even a partialized part of someone's game remade into another. Da-Bomb for Skyforge the new system got me and my friends hooked up on grinding and i'm liking the new Outlaw class (although maybe it's because it feels OP).

An aside: Grenado Espanada (sp ?) had a good idea, I did try it for a while, but the controls were convoluted and felt poorly executed.

As for Revelation Online, the classes look like they show some promise, which is always a boon for me. I am apprehensively watching it. If it's free to play I will probably check it out, but if it isn't then I will probably pass. I have 4-ish games I'm hopping around in right now, so if it's not spectacular it probably won't grab me.

I want Revelation Online but I won't make the same mistake I did with Black Desert Online. I won't buy a founders pack or none of that shit. I will wait until its completey free before I even hop into it. I refuse to pay for a game that players will completely abandon months down the road the way they did with Black Desert Online. Every thing I know about the game I watch on Cryy youtube channel. I hope I get a beta key for free because I sure as hell won't be buying the beta keys

QOTW: I am genuinely excited for Revelation Online as I signed up for beta months ago. Combat feels fun, graphics & cutscenes look impressive, can't say much about the story and other features yet but let's just hope for mature ffxiv par quality!

Great episode guys, I found myself laughing all the way through. I am slowly working my way through all your back episodes. up to 174 now.

DaBomb to Istrolid, a great time waster game for when you are waiting for updates to download or during server maintenance.

Daybreak Games should create a game called World of Exiled Guardian Paladin Legends, League Edition, the new and improved Battle Arena TCG MMORPG, $420 Founder Pack, comes with Closed Beta Access, and Extra Inventory Slots, Epic Level Shiney Cards and much much more - how could such a game fail.

A Question for the hosts - What is the most you have spent in a single purchase in a cash shop, which game was it and what was the item?

Question of the week - I've been looking for a new MMORPG that I could get into from the beginning. The SpiritShaper Class shows promise, I like running as a healer, and I also like being able to summon creatures. The art style is nice, graphics seem ok, but it seems to lack a storyline and open world pvp is always a concern for me.

Oh, and what exactly is it that GW2 or even WoW do better that Tera doesn't do.
What mmo out there doesn't have gear grind, dungeon grind, gathering grind, and crafting grind?
Please stop the whining about Tera already, I get it you don't like Tera action combat.
Is not for you. Just write up an article about how crappy Tera is and just get it off your chest already and " let it go " (Frozen Song Here).

Yes, gender locked classes each individual race has it's unique animation to them if you noticed.
That would required new animations for combat for each race, which there are seven. I don't think that Bluehole would invest in doing that.

You are not going to convince these players who are core players.

Maybe getting the axe was the best thing for the game as this looked more Pixar than Marvel.
