    Whats up everyone!
    AJ is pumped for KUF2 and so am I! I've got a fast growing playlist of gameplay videos and detailed breakdowns of the features and mechanics in this game.
    I live in Japan and have access to the beta, playing as much as I can and so far it's exceeded my expectations! The large scale battles are challenging and story driven. The customization of your character and your troops is deep and very interesting! And while I do see room for improvement in the beta leading up to the launch in the west, so far, I'm really pleased with Kingdom Under Fire 2!
    Check out my channel and videos below for more! If you have any questions, I'll do my best to answer.

  2. Rhovanor liked a post in a topic by Arreyanne in Tera Expansion inbound before years end   
    The update is coming in three releases
    The first was released in Korea on the 23rd of July: This is copy and paste From A certain Tera Index
    The Forgotten Continent
    The Archdevas are plotting something in the lands beyond the Great Rift, slowly but surely gathering their army for their grand scheme. The Valkyon Federation has formed a scouting party to prevent their plans from taking fruit. They board the airship, Elkaia, and head towards the forgotten continent in the North but they are soon under attack and have little choice but to crash land into the dense jungles below.
    From there more trouble arises…
    I. Cap Raise and a New Area
    New cap at level 65 and the unveiling of Northern Arun New open world maps and BAMs Primeval Forest
    In a pursuit for freedom a small Anon resistance group has evaded the eyes of the Archdevas and their own Anon Tribe to set up camp in the Primeval Forest. But in resistance group is met with another dilemma when the original inhabitants of the forest, the cannibalistic Mantis Tribe, provide a not-so-warm welcome to their arrival.
    Barakania Heights
    The Archdevas with the Anon Tribe lead the Demokrons into the sacred lands to obtain the Knowledge of Orin, Arcana and Naia. To protect the land from the incoming threat the Barakas and the small Anon resistance group join arms. To make matters worse there are also the goblins who, for their own gains, will take part in this complex battle.
    Ancient Barakania Ruins
    In the surrounding areas of Baraka’s capital, Iruka, there lies several ruins that have felled due to the forces of the Archdevas and the Arcanons. Try as they might to preserve these ruins their efforts have proved futile and many of their historic ruins have become the Archdevas’ stronghold.
    Archdeva Stronghold
    The Archdeva Stronghold is under siege by the allied forces. There is no cease fire as they continue their barrage against the Archdevas’ Demokron army. The Valkyon Federation has managed to push into the courtyard but the tides of battle are at a standstill has both sides have no plans of giving up.
    Iruka, Baraka’s Capital
    Following the promise to their god, Orin, the Baraka’s of Iruka continue to protect the sacred Knowledge of Orin, Arcana and Naia. But the Archdevas threaten to steal away this knowledge and the Barakas had no choice but to hide themselves within the great city in order to protect Arcana and Naia
    II. Improved In-Game Systems Daily Playthrough Guide
    Available from level 60 Players will be able to obtain quests related to the new leveling zone Players will receive various rewards by completing the quests listed  
    Ehancement Crystals 1. New Crystals
    The next set of weapon and armour crystals have been added for the new level. The Domineering, Hunters, and Mutinous-type crystals have been merged.
    The new crystals can be acquired through the Crystal Box within the game as well as through the Valkyon Scouts reputation credits. Several crystals that were obtainable through the reputation merchants will no longer be obtainable
    2. Dual Option Artefacts
    New Artefacts which can be placed in either the weapon or armour crystal slots have been added. The Artefacts do not break upon death and posses dual stats. The Artefacts can be created through crystal synthesis using an Artefact Ore and the new weapon/armour crystals without fail. These Artefacts are great in that they posses dual stats but they will be bound to the first piece of equipment they are placed into.
    3. Crystal Synthesis System
    Players will now be able to use crystals they do not need to create crystals with a different stat. Crystal Synthesis will require 3 crystals of the same colour and rank and will provide a new crystal or Artefact according to the type of crystals used in the process.
    The success rate is 100% when using the Artefact Ore.
    Enhancement System Refinement
    A system made much more convenient with the addition of Enhancement Stones.
    In the old system players were required to have the same type of gear piece to enchant (ie. boots to enchant boots) but in the new system players can enchant any piece with ease with the addition of the “Enhancement Stone”. Players will be able to break down the existing fodder gear to obtain stones of the same value. The success rate will increase depending on the number of Enhancement Stones used. Similar to existing gear, the Enhancement Stones have ranks of their own and can be obtained through playing the game. Players can obtain the next tier by combining lower tier stones at a rate of 6:1. The stones will accumulate itself onto the piece you are attempting to enchant and when it comes time to break down your used gear you will get back what you had used to enchant. Alkahests will also be revised and will have ranks of their own. The new alkahests can be used to enchant from +1 to 9. The Alkahest and Refined Alkahest will be merged and a new Alkahest rank will also be added  Coming Soon…!

  3. Rhovanor liked a post in a topic by Cheufade in Encouraging gamers not to pre-order   
    The act of pre-ordering, according to Cartman:

    Pre-ordering a game, just further encourages companies to make pre-order exclusive content, which then again encourages people to pre-order. Instead of paying $55 for a game that possibly might be awful, you could pay $60, and further support the developer who made a good game. What's the hurry of paying for nothing? The game won't be released any faster, than it will be. I'm not going to buy Dark Souls 2, after the fiasco that DS was in the first place. I'll wait up till Elder Geek, or some other PC focused gaming site will make a review out of the PC port.
    I think TB has a great video about this topic:

  6. Rhovanor liked a post in a topic by Arreyanne in The Elder Scrolls Online: Monthly Subscription for a Full-priced Game   
    Well Its like tera which I have two subscriptions to although I could get the same game without it I get a free elite mount thought I have purchased 4 others and some convenience items which i appreciate for being a sub.
    Tera IMHO has the best F2P model out there atm, everything in the cash shop is cosmetic items, outfits weapon skins, and some thing that help u enchant if you want to buy them instead of farm them thought that choice is up to you.
    And since i have what amounts to a founders account(SWTOR Equivilant) I could get the 8 character slots without a sub however i like the game and sub so they can maintain and fix and I buy items i want to wear from the shop.
    ESO will loose alot of potential customers with a 60 dollar price tag a store and a monthly fee As I posted before I wont play it for a sub that should be my choice like tera and swtor not theirs

  10. Rhovanor liked a post in a topic by Nytefury in Why is Joe full of it? CAPCOM bribes him, fyi.   
    Ok, so I am going to go through what you have said, and completely rip it apart.
    You claim Joe has been bribed yet offer absolutely no proof, you claim to be a Capcom ex employee but have provided no evidence of that either. You haven't written anything that would make anyone here think you have been employed in the games industry, ever. But let us put that aside. From what I have seen of Joe, I know of occasion's where if there is any appearance of bias he will stay completely away from it. One example that comes to mind was War of the Roses. The devs looked after Joe and several other reviewers by organising a bit of a tournament, and as mush as Joe appreciated what they did for him, he stayed away from reviewing it so as to not give the appearance of a biased review (which I think we all know Joe would have enough integrity not to give a biased score to mislead his fans).
    As far as the claims of metacritic go that is laughable, many of us don't even like metacritic because of the way it gives "weighted scores". In addition, no one at any time, in any officer or non officer position has asked anyone else to go to a review site and give a certain score. I would think if there was some conspiracy to up-vote or down-vote something on any site like metacritic, I and my fellow officers would have heard about it... Whoever is reading this post right now, no matter who they are, has never been asked to vote anyway for Joe or the AJSA. So essentially you have put forth a conspiracy so secret, that absolutely no one knows about it....
    Claims that Joe rips off his reviews from IGN scraps is laughable. You know you are writing to people who can actually think for themselves, and won't blindly think "Oh this random guy who says who lies about working for Capcom, says Joe uses IGN scraps, so it must be true!" What on God's green earth makes you think a passionate and creative gamer like Joe takes his cues from IGN....
    Everything you have written here is baseless not only because you have not provided any evidence, but because I am in a position to know better, and I think everyone can see through your lies pretty easily. Finally, let's take a look at DMC on Metacritic, since that is the example you have used. Joe gave it a 7, which is lower than every single critic review (lowest was 7.8, IGN gave it 8.9). The average user rating was 6.5, so Joe was off by half a point (and considering Joe generally doesn't use decimal ratings, he was on the money), and you call him a sell out? I am so sorry the rest of the world doesn't think the game deserves the rating you think it should get....
    Since you have decided to be slanderous to Joe and the AJSA, insulting to those who have been open minded enough to say "ok, we hear what you are saying, show us the proof", with which you responded between insults "I am an ex Capcom employee" (again with no proof, as no one has ever misrepresented themselves on the net ever....) you have been rewarded with a parmaban for your hard work, and we hope you enjoyed your stay with us in the AJSA.

    I consider the first Crysis better than the 3th one. But that's not listed so I voted Bioshock. I don't play many fps games so I don't really know how good some others are.

  17. Rhovanor liked a post in a topic by Riflebird in The Elder Scrolls Online: Monthly Subscription for a Full-priced Game   
    Exactly. Games like League of Legends, DOTA, Team Fortress 2, Path of Exile, Warframe, Blacklight, etc. show that free to play games can function, and make a hell of a profit, without going Pay to Win. Frankly, if a company is stupid enough to come up with P2W microtransactions, then they will be called out on it. Take a look at Mighty Quest for Epic Loot; Ubisoft tried to pull a pay to win business model, but the community raged and they were forced to nix the idea. 
    The free to play model is so widely used because it WORKS. Sure, not everyone who plays the game will buy skins or designer hats, but the fact is enough people buy that junk that it not only supports the costs of upkeep and server maintenance, but provides the companies with a hefty profit as well. The problem with all the new sub model MMOs coming out is they want to be the next World of Warcraft. The shareholders and execs in the publishers see those millions of subscribers and DROOL; they want to reap that $15 a month X ten million subscribers, and they are willing to risk the entire game in the hopes that it'll be a smash hit. It is pure greed, simple as that. 

    But I wish them the best. From what I've been hearing from beta testers, ESO is nothing special. Just a typical MMO with the usual boilerplate MMORPG mechanics just with Elder Scrolls lore tossed in. I would have probably tried it out if it weren't so expensive, but with the $60 opt-in plus $15 a month sub, I'll give it a pass.

    I decided to tune in to the VGAs (or VGX) tonight to see what awards would be given out to amazing games, but sadly my entire experience was ruined by yet another host that has no idea what's going on. Who am I talking about? This idiot named Joel. Everything he said only wasted time, caused headaches, and annoyed the hell out of the group of people I was with watching the show. His jokes aren't funny. Him drawing out every segment with his smug face on it. He served no purpose (Including constantly insulting Tim Schafer.) Why can't we have a good host for gaming events anymore?

    The simple fact is, it costs too much - especially when you can't try it first. I'm a huge Elder Scrolls fan but as soon as I heard about this business model I knew it was a bad decision. Even with all my love for the games and respect the team, I won't be buying it. This model is simply greedy and has caused many fans to question the morality of the company and its loyalty to fans. When hard-core fans are put off, how do you think newcomers will feel? A quarter of the fans buying it wont equal the money they would've if 90+ percent of fans bought it for a more reasonable price. 
    This decision has certainly lost my money. Speak with your wallet. Don't support decisions you disagree with.

    ok so they are using your money to make new content, then make you pay for the expansion which is what you say my 15$ is going to. So i don't know what state of illusion you are in but wake up sweetheart they are ripping you off!
    I mean we saw it with our own eyes with GW2 for Pete's sake! i don’t mind the $60 and then paying them for the expansion, and if you’re saying that they need my $15 to update the server or some shit then I should not have to pay for them to fix a game I already bought. I don't mind microtransactions because I know what I’m getting for them.
  23. Rhovanor liked a post in a topic by Riflebird in The Elder Scrolls Online: Monthly Subscription for a Full-priced Game   
    I would be okay if ESO was a regular retail one time payment of $60.
    I would be okay if ESO was a subscription model that was $15 a month with the purchase price of $20-$40.
    I would be okay if ESO was a free-to-play game with a cash shop that sold micro transactions.
    I would even be okay if the business model was a combination of any of the two above. 
    What I am NOT okay with is ESO triple dipping, charging a full $60 retail, on top of the $15 a month sub, and also having the gall to charge for micro transactions! This is an utterly BS business model that nickel and dimes its customers. The last two MMOs that tried to pull this business model was Star Wars Old Republic and the Secret World; and we know what happened to those two. 
    Publishers need to stop trying to be the next WoW, because in this climate it isn't gonna happen. WoW and EVE Online are the exceptions to the rule; subscription MMOs are not gonna work anymore regardless of how often game companies try to push them down our throats. 
    I love the Elder Scrolls series, but I will not be buying ESO. Not only is it not made by Bethesda, it is just not a very good value. I'll stick with Guild Wars 2 and some of the better free to play MMOs out there. Frankly, if history is to be believed, then ESO and Wildstar will be F2P after a few months of launching anyway.
