G2A spokesperson turns TinyBuild GDC panel into an argument about fraudulent keysG2A spokesperson turns TinyBuild GDC panel into an argument about fraudulent keys
diblob Avatar
I've used G2A for years and have never had any problems at all with any game key I have purchased. All you have to do is look at the key sellers' reputation and you have a very good idea about how reliable their keys are. Some have sold hundreds of thousands of keys and have a 100% 5 star rating so you know you are in good hands. G2A is a great place to save some money on games, just be careful when buying from newer sellers who have few good reviews. P.S. I have never paid for their G2A shield insurance, and have never needed it.

I could whine on about how negative this article is, but I won't.... because I pretty much agree with it! It's a gimmick that simply will not last. Think of all the accidents that Wii remotes and Kinect caused by people flailing about like idiots in front of their TVs, now imagine what would happen with a blindfold on as well :)

Blade & Soul on being the chosen one, button-mashing combat, and free expansions for allBlade & Soul on being the chosen one, button-mashing combat, and free expansions for all
Sorcorer21b Avatar
Blade and Soul is turning in to the biggest let down of any release. Lack of communication, other than the weekly uninformative live stream, is alienating the community. Add to this they had 4 years to prepare for a western release and then release a poorly optimized pile of garbage, with no support or communication on what's being done to fix it.
As to the story line, most of the story line is run and fetch, so that's out the window there. The story is pretty decent in Viridian Coast, but once you hit the Cinderlands it turns in to mostly droll run and fetch. Leaving you feel that your character is little more than a side note in the game.
As to the sense of community. Well if you take the mass outrage and exodus on the forums. Then, yes, there is a since of community in leaving the game. Adding to this, almost all the content can be soloed, well there goes the community right there.
The crafting in the game, isn't even crafting. It is more akin to ordering a pizza, only to be told it will arrive in 12 hours.
The combat, while fast paced, is plagued with skill input lag and FPS drops for no reason. Again referring back to the poorly optimized pile of garbage. They had time to prepare for the Western release. They failed horribly with it. Gameguard blocking people out of the game for using software that comes with their gaming mouse or keyboard. Registering them as 3rd party programs and banning them as bots or hacks. Skill input lag so bad that you can use a skill, only for it to never go off. Turning if from a button masher to a button spam game, just trying to get your skills to work.
As to the amount of people that signed up on release. I'll be nice here, looking at the state of the game between launch and now, a good 1.5 million of those accounts are nothing but Gold farming bots.
As for the Customer Service that NCSoft has provider with the western release. This game isn't going to last long. If you file a support ticket, expect to get a copy and paste automated response. If you do get an actual Customer Support Representative, don't expect them to be very helpful to you, as they tend to side with NCSoft's decision instead of actually helping the player.
All in all, NCSoft has deliver the western release of Blade and Soul: Offloaded Garbage.

^^ All of the above. This article reads so much like a paid puff piece. Now I'm off to go and play Black Desert :)

Been playing BDO as well. After trying it out in the CBT2, I was convinced enough to pre-order. Nice game, and at the least it's enough to keep me going til Legion and hopefully beyond.

I'm really impressed. I was hyped to try it because the combat looked fantastic, but i've found myself spending more than half my time toying with the trade system.


Not because combat isn't awesome, it is. It's just the trading system is like some kind of cool Civ/Settlers minigame thrown in to the map screen. 2 games for the price of 1! :)


Can't wait for PvP and seiges. Hoping for some of those Lineage 2 feels i had ~15 years ago.

Blizz can suck my plums if they expect me to spend two weeks or so doing crappy dailies and repetitive rep grinding just to get bloody flying. I love flying in Wow, but not enough to bow down to their idea of fun in getting the skill. Just let me buy the damn skill like every other expansion you arses.

TxK's PC port has been cancelled due to a copyright violation claim from AtariTxK's PC port has been cancelled due to a copyright violation claim from Atari
diblob Avatar

Hate to say it, and I know we all like to hate companies and defend the little man, but Atari may have a case here. When you create something for a company such as Atari (i.e. Tempest 2000), it is the company that normally retains all rights to that product, and not the employee. TxK is clearly a clone of Tempest 2000 owned by Atari. The little man is not always in the right. I love Jeff Minter though, so I also can't help but feel for him.

On the other hand, "spiritual successor to old classic by the original devs" is not exactly an uncommon thing in this industry, and clearly there's been quite a few Tempest-inspired games over the years. Atari are also making a few very dubious claims here.

I find it strange that they didn't just offer him some kind of deal instead. I mean, if they simply offered him the use of the name Tempest in return for some cash/percentage, they'd gain a bunch of brand awareness and some money.

Would probably be useful when they make their own Tempest-game (which would most likely be a first person survival MMO with racing elements and construction, if their other recent relaunches of classic IP is anything to go by. also, free to play)
