    Astellia Online

    See now that is smart... That concept is made for people like me, because if I stick with the game 30-days I would be a lot more likely to buy it and keep playing. $10 I can bet on a MMORPG. I bet $10 on Steam games all the time. If I only play it 10 hours and uninstall, I feel like it was worth my $10 to find out. I wouldn't feel the same if I had paid $40, but clearly they wouldn't care because they already had my money. As the saying does - "Never pass up the chance to walk a mile in someone else's shoes. That way you are a mile away, and you have their shoes."
  2. I don't know how I missed this post... I'm clearly behind on my news, as I was not friends with her on Facebook. I've known Leah for the better part of a decade, and it is truly sad to have lost her from our community.
  3. Hah yep, same here! I thought the gameplay looked amazing, but Single Player only really puts a dampener on things.
  4. I've been following the newsletters as well... This came cannot come soon enough!

    Astellia Online

    I have some interest in this one as well... My only concern is that it is B2P, and they're asking for $40 minimum for the game. I hesitate to spend $40 on a game that most reviewers are saying "we've seen this before". According to most of the reviews from closed beta, they are saying that this game definitely has potential and has some very interesting concepts. It is certainly possible that it will be a really fun game to play. However, they usually temper their excitement with comments like: "Astellia leaves you feeling like you’ve already played this game before…and we really have." "There is no amount of storytelling that can explain how this makes sense." "Every new game is fun for at least 3 days, but I don't know if this one will last beyond that." "It is a very pretty game, but I don't think that is enough anymore." After Bless Online, I am definitely wary of any Korean -> English conversion MMORPG. So many titles have been ported over to USA, and so far all of them have fallen short of expectations. Personally I am interested in Astellia Online, but not enough to drop $40 on it before I play it. I'll probably wait to see how the reviews are for the first couple of weeks.
  6. This is awesome.... Great info!
  7. If you haven't already heard, Wolcen just dropped a huge 1GB content patch yesterday (6/24/2019). They added a lot of good stuff, and they are really moving along in the development path. If you haven't heard of "Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem" before, it is an Action RPG similar to Diablo III that is being developed for Steam by Wolcen Studios. On a side note, it is on sale this week for 20% off! https://store.steampowered.com/app/424370/Wolcen_Lords_of_Mayhem/

    City of Heroes

    I'm not sure if you guys have played on the Villain side, but if you do - create your characters on the Indomitable server. I have some RL friends that restarted our old Supergroup, WWE (World Wide Evil). They are already running the endgame raids, and they have a number of people who are willing to powerlevel new players so they can get to the endgame quicker. City of Heroes / Villains was a semi-grindy game for leveling 1-50 in PvE... The endgame raids and PvP are where it really shined. I have a level 40 Electric / Kinetic Corruptor who is my main... Specializes in support buffs, heals, and then AOE DPS. I themed him as an evil version of The Flash. I also have a Darkness / Fiery Dominator that specializes in CC and DPS. Good times!
  9. I played it a bit as well. It seemed like a decent game, but the devs have a long way to go yet. There was also a round of layoffs recently amongst their game developer staff. https://kotaku.com/amazon-lays-off-dozens-of-game-developers-during-e3-1835523460 If they can keep rolling out new content and iron out the bugs, they have a shot at getting this one off the ground.
  10. I would assume so... I don't know why we wouldn't keep it going. Also, welcome back to the forums, slacker!
  11. Well, after looking into it - Origin Premiere definitely looks worth it. It is great way to try the games without having to buy them individually. Since it gives me access to dozens of games I want to play, I'll be hooked for the forseeable future. I'll try and give Anthem a try tonight.
  12. I just enrolled in Premiere so I could try out Anthem... But holy shit, it includes a lot more games than I expected. Without buying them I can play all the Star Wars games (including Battlefront 2), the FIFA games (2016-2019), the Battlefield games, the Mass Effect games, the Dragon Age games, The Darksiders games... I mean, the list goes on and on. It also looks like they are getting games added in there like They Are Billions, which I've wanted to play on Steam but it never goes low enough on sale to justify it. I didn't think much of Origin prior to today, but I'm rather excited with the 100+ games I just got access to. Even if I don't own the games, $15 is well worth the cost to play whatever game I want to play in that library.
  13. I was really super excited for this one originally, but then I lost interest after mixed reviews... I'm just curious, for those of you who have been playing it since it officially "launched", what do you think so far? The more detail the better!
  14. If this works for you, I know a couple Nigerian Princes that would love your support!
  15. Welcome to the COTP family Oukeef! Chapter: Atlas
  16. Welcome to the COTP community!
  17. Good stuff. Wasn't there a taming rebalance that was originally part of this patch? I didn't see it, so either it came out in an earlier patch or it may have been delayed.
  18. What do you guys think? Legit? Or a bug?
  19. Jumping onto the Open-World Survival genre is another new game - Population Zero. I'm going to keep my expectations relatively low at this point, as the developer (Enplex Games) is a small Russian company. I've never head of this company, so we shall see where this one goes... I have at least applied to get into the Alpha testing. https://pzonline.com/en/about-game/
  20. Here are some of my screenshots so far, including a bunch from our long sea voyage last night. The maiden voyage of the SS Skoldjr was a success! We had a large group of COTP members with us, and we found numerous treasure troves (with big exp boosts). We even survived hurricanes and Ships of the Damned!
