So Tera NA and EU both finally made the inevitable announcement of going Free2play, I personally see this as a good thing as it will bring the game back to life with a bunch of new players and leaves no obligation to feel the need to play it anymore as you have paid for a month, there's no doubt there will be the dooms day people poping up about how it's gone free but if anything it's just the best idea for Tera as a game and if anything most MMO's should either be F2P with a balanced cash shop or buy to play.
So from what they're saying about the free2play switch is that no content or anything for that matter will be restricted, so no enchanting items will be took out of the game much like the KR version at all, we will have everything that all the once paying customers h...
So after years of development and testing, the game is finally just about finished with the upcoming Open Beta over in Korea which means that for the US/EU were finally getting closer to the game being released down here.

So Instead of them using the KSSN system that's usually there, they will identify you with you providing info such as a mobile phone number, email address etc, this system is in place in accordance with the Act on Promotion of Information and Communications Network Utilization and Information Protection, etc.
What they are wanting from players wanting to sign up is: DI, CI, date of birth, gender...
So I've just came across news that the secret world has gone into a buy to play mode with a cash shop, even though I won't be playing the game I'm actually quite happy about the news and that's only because I personally think that Buy2Play with an optional cash shop is the best way for games to go and I'm hopeing more company's and even current P2P games start to take this route (providing the cash shop isn't some greedy pay to win attempt), generally any game you actually buy would normally have some high production value just like any console game for example and it's generally good for developers as they know they will be getting money which helps production and updates among other things, so without further adieu here's the update from The Secret World web
So since I haven't really seen any proper detailed review or thoughts on the game that can give people a good idea of what the game basically is, I thought I would do just that to give those people an idea if your still pondering on "is this even worth trying?".
The customization is really basic for this game, I was originally hoping it would have more as we come closer to 2013 but I should really start remembering that not all company's have the funds to make everything as great as possible, leading from customization of characters to the texturing of the game world.
So anyway what we have is simply 4 things to work from, 5 selections of faces, 5 hair styles and 3 colours to them, 5 accessory's and 5 fa
I'm not to sure what quite happened here so before I even dare to begin...I'm going to say to everyone that's still on the fence on buying WarZ or havn't yet purchased it for any reason at all, then please god DO NOT BUY IT, wait till the game is released, see the reviews, look up what kind of bugs the game may be plagued with etc and if you still feel confident in it then by all means buy the game, but till then I would advise anyone to be really cautious because this is the biggest joke I've ever seen in my life, I'll also note that this peice of ass is years old but I've only recently heard of it and I'm sure anyone reading this will have only just found out about this as well.
So generally we get the odd terrible games that are released, but this game is so bad, that...
I don't know why but it really bugs me when we have games that do this, I've seen a bunch of browser games that did this, one of them blatantly stealing as much as possible from World of Warcraft, from the character screen, races and mobs within the game, then I even managed to see one that tried it's hardest to rip Lineage 2 off, such as stealing town names from the game and ripping the music straight into the game it self, what bugged me more was the fact that you could tell these games had little to no thought put in them and they were just some easy way for them to make some cheap cash from such a rip off and I've no idea how they can manage to get away with it.
Anyway those 2 example games aren't even my focus but I just wanted to point them out, my gripe now is the s
This could be a review In a sense, though I'm going for something a bit different in with the "issue" bit, I'm really hoping ArenaNet manages to fix as it's basically a world vs world issue to everyone.
So one of the "joys" is just how well the questing has been created in this game, It's at a point where it doesn't even really feel like questing, it makes an MMO into what an MMO should actually be which isn't talking to every NPC with a ! over his head to either kill 10 spiders or kill a bunch of boars and bring back some meat from their corpse, then do more quests just killing different looking mobs 100+ more times in attempt to reach level cap.
What GW2 has managed to do is made it totally up to you how you level up, in which you can either be doing the publi
Now I've only even bothered to play this game for about 4 hours or so, fiddling with all 4 of the classes, so I'll be giving my experience on this game which really, is quite bad, I think that this game was released quite a while back and may have shut down? and from what I know, it will be coming back again and this is the version that I'm playing. (feel free to correct me or give me it's history)
So let me start off with the camera with this game, it's a damn pain, it does not rotate smoothly at all, if anything it's just horrible, perhaps it was mainly because I was playing on windows mode, but why should that be an issue? when I'm playing games I actually like to be on windows mode so I can do other things without having to minimize, so yeah the main problem is the fact that i
I came across this game earlier today by some friends telling me they were playing it, I had no idea what it was and had never heard of it and for all the good reasons, those being that the game it self is still in it's alpha stages and no real advertising has been done as they're still pretty much making the game and adding things into it, just suprisingly for a game in it's alpha stages, the game is very good and I've yet to come across any general bugs or errors, so the game runs pretty darn smooth, the only thing is the internet connection to other players, it's unsupported so you should expect some lag here and there, though for those that use LAN, it works totally fine, so what this will be is an in-depth look into some of the core functions of the game, I'll al
I thought I would write this as there is yet to be a review by someone that did the EU PvP server, so this is just my impressions and possibilitys on what could change on next betas/release.
I managed to reach level 22 on the second night of the CBT as I had re-rolled another character when I was half way through my other, which means by the time I was level 11+, there was already people at level 22 then started to go onto some PK sprees/ganks with other players, killing the lowbies for the sake of being a pain and of course ganking higher levels when they obviously know they can win as per usual, so I certainly had my taste of the jack ass players.
So compared to PvE servers, it's definitely intense and you always have to keep your eyes peeled for possible attacks,
