Pso2 would have been one of the best games ever had to come to consoles, not everyone has a good enough PC to really run it well, and having it on console would have opened it up to a much wider audience (in America, I'm not sure about Japan)
Streamlined mechanics and everything "preset" is not how I envisioned my MMO's being in the future.. And unless consoles start becoming more like PC's and less like Smart Phones, there is just no room for this genre there..
Why don't company's add gold in thier item mall's?..( Not that i would Ever buy any )
Nothing is worse than a chat system full of Buy gold here , power lvling..bla bla bla.
Spamming the chat non stop. It as you know now has gotten so bad thier even starting to " Try " and sell it in CBT's....
It's nothing but profit for them , and make's thier game's more player friendly.
I truely think that is one of the Biggest pet peeve's that is out thier , But on the F2P cast for your peeve question ..I wonder how many have said this.. ( I never, i forgot all about it at the time i was awnsering that question, I bet alot of other players did also)
Thanks for another Great show
I had to comment a bit on the exploration bit because you didn't mention GW2 having secrets in their maps. You do have exploration and vista points and all that but, you do have to look around abit to find things like jumping puzzles and diving platforms which do get rewarded for finding. GW2 is an excellent example on the notion of exploration and reward.
Anyway, I got a question for you. Is MMOBomb going to be bringing in any more people in the near future? If so, what would one have to do in order to become part of the team?
I don't want to see Rusty Hearts or Soul Worker on consoles.
I pretty much love exploration...when I started GW2, I made it a goal to 100% explore an entire map before moving on to the next one. I'd enjoy seeing it in other MMOs, though Magicman is right..it'll be harder for f2p games, or at least those who's dev teams have a smaller budget.
Great ep, keep up the work :)
great episode as usual keep it up man oh and also
