You can team up and gank a dragon in GW2 though ;-)

TSW was up on Steam 50% off.  Not a good sign.  I really wanted this one to work.  Pitty.

-L

P.S.  Skyrim Rox, too bad there is no multi. I'd love to team up and gank a dragon... just to say we did.    w00t!

50% off is *not* necessarily a bad sign though. There were reports before hand in that it only sold 200K copies. As far as i could tell, the sale offer was purely on the US market, because I was unable to view it, i was actually tempted to buy it at that discounted price!

2) Not to be used when upset... will void warranty
3) Stoke me a clipper i will be back for dinner
4) Never tell Gangrel to do anything... he will probably get it wrong
5) I have seen more intelligence from an NPC AI in TR beta, than from most MMO players.

Indeed. I didn't really like the game, though. Pretty great setting, but mh gameplay. Especially compared to GW2.

I wouldn't really call it Free 2 Play... you still need to buy the client. If anything, this is Buy2Play, just like Guild Wars 2 is.

Will this work for them? Who knows, there are some benefits for subbing, but it looks like they are trying to go the "DLC route" for content, and treat it more like a normal computer game instead of an MMO. It could well work for them.

And yes, this was a fast change over, didn't expect it in the slightest.

Oh. That makes a lot of sense, actually. Yeah, that, I can get behind. Given the state of the platform, I'd say only games with high persistence are worth a subscrition fee now, and TSW certainly doesn't have much of that. I might pick it up eventually.

Well, in this light, I consider to get it too. b2p works for me and buying DLC with content once in a while seems cheap enough.

Of course, if they *ever* put "must have items, and they are only obtainable from the cash shop", I will get the hell out of there. Guild Wars 2 I have *yet* to buy anything from their store, I haven't had the need to... of course, as soon as i need new character slots, then yes, I will buy them, but i do not view those ones as "essential" however.

Name me! Here's the guy I've made: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=118266543
The cutscene with Dr. Zurn looked interesting, I'll have to note. Right now he's just Dwayne "DThurman" Thurman, but he certainly needs a better nickname. Any ideas?
