    Gaming Recommendations for 2016?

    Thanks will look at Legends of Heroes Trails. Many moons ago i played and completed Phantasy Star II on the Mega Drive. Not really played any since. Mallorn will certainly consider those, console gaming maybe something i have to re-quaint with. I just find myself playing retro stuff on PC for the most part. Regarding MMOs, 2016 does not look like a promising year.
  3. I am seriously struggling to find some new games that capture my imagination in 2016. I must have overlooked something in reading some of the mainstream PC gaming websites and MMO sites. Can anyone suggest any new MMOs or single player games that are worth a look for this year? In MMOs I am looking for something that has challenging and interesting PVE content including group and raids, with PVP content to participate in. Not a great fan of persistent world PVP. I like to be able to do it when i feel like it, not having to watch my back all the time. This is the big elephant in the room though, cannot find any MMOs, at the moment that hold my attention. I even contemplated playing WoW again, and I quit that at the end of the Burning Crusade. I just tried SWTOR again and had leveled to 50 by Nar Shaddaa. Content was face rolling easy. Suspect LOTRO would be an utter waste of time, and having read up on the Lore-master changes it does not sound like the class it once was (CC not being in demand any more, I also suspect an auto attacking pet could kill most landscape mobs). In single player games tend to be more RPG or strategy focussed, but I am open to suggestions in other genres. Quite looking forward to: Torment:Tides of Numeria: https://torment.inxile-entertainment.com/ and Warhammer: Total War Am also playing Elite Dangerous atm, together with the europa barbarorum 2 modification for Medieval total war 2.

    Got my Lair Coat.

    You make some interesting points, I did play briefly at launch, one thing I did like about it which have not seen in other mmos is quests that actually make you think and are not obvious in solution. I may give it another try, although my limited playtime due to a full time job and nightschool does limit potential playtime.

    Congratz, this is a game I wish I had played more at launch.

    Update on Transfers/Server Consolidations

    Bye, Bye Eldar. I wont be bothering to install the game to move my Lore-master. Last time i played talent trees did not exist, still dont know what audacity is and essence would just confuse me. For anyone who's interested before they disappear most of the bragging rights to first raid clearances belonged to Eldar and Elendilmir. Eldar - The Mellowship Kinship Elendmir - Preying Mantis Kinship

    2015 Player Councils announced

    Boat sailed on a quality game some years ago, the minute a company needs a focus group to tell it how to design a game you know somethings going wrong. May as well set up an innovation committee. i cant imagine this rubbish being done during the better years of the game. Nor it being a discussion point. The fact that this is the main point of discussion on LOTRO at the moment sort of sums up how low the game has sunk. But then who am I to comment, an ex-player who stopped playing in 2010 (when free to play began).

    Lotro PvPers...are they really that bad?

    Doros right, I played from launch until 2010 the Rift was a really fun 12 man raid, which remained relativley challenging at level 50. The phat loot from it was also rather good, and you knew which armour piece dropped off of which boss; gems were handed in to vendor for the armour. Helegrod by comparison required 24 people for Thorog, and he could be activated via three items (collected in earlier full runs which did not despawn on leaving the instance), making Helegrod more of a lair raid if you could not be fooked to do the other three bosses. The dragon was challenging but the reward (except Mirdinant) was awful. The Helegrod armour drops were extremely random and most of the Helegord armour sucked badly. There was also a time in the games early history where the Helegrod Armour was actually dropping off of landscape mobs in the normal gameworld.
  10. Laurinaohtar said this about Kickstarter in the Pillars of Eternity thread, and arguably the same could be said about the MassivleyOP Kickstarter fund. Once they have your money what does it matter about giving an objective opinion on an MMO. Rather its probably in there interests to secure paid endorsments from development companies going forward. I expect any article about the LOTRO sunset will offer a very rosy opinion of 10 years of success.

    Really cool pics, lost all of mine when previous computer blew up. Does anyone have any screenies of running to the Rift of Nurz Gashu for the first time at level 50? I had some hilarious ones of being chased by all the mobs around Barad Gularan.
  12. Its a shame one of the few remaining PC focused gaming mags (which I ocasionally read for free in WH Smugs, when waiting for a train) takes the coporate shilling in this way.
  13. Theres certainly something to be said about the SoA through to FTP times creepside, when abilities were earned with rank. Very irritating for veterans when it became a cash shop free for all.
