Alexander452 liked a post in a topic by VirexGaming in Any Free MMOs out that`s worth the download?
The only MMO I can think of that hasn't already been named is Path of Exile which plays similar to Diablo and it has one of the best business models in the F2P market.
If you're interested in looking at upcoming F2P MMOs, here's the ones I know of (some of these might have changed to Buy2Play now): Dauntless, Lost Ark, Lineage Eternal, Albion Online, Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen, and Crowfall.
VirexGaming liked a post in a topic by Alexander452 in Any Free MMOs out that`s worth the download?
Depends on what you're looking for
I can give you recommendations from personal experience at least
Rift is basically more or less a F2P version of WoW in the gameplay aspects
Tera is a more combat oriented MMO out there
Riders of Icarus is an MMORPG with focus on arial pet combat
World Of Tanks, World of Warplanes, and World of warships are all mmo's made by wargaming
If you're looking for a more "realistic" approach, Warthunder is also an option
Warframe is quite a good hack and slash shooter although grindy in the long run
Paladins is your poor mans overwatch
Trove is a fun cube esque game
Neverwinter is a DnD-ish MMORPG
Spiral knights is a cute hack and slash
Defiance is a borderlands-ish mmofps
Fallen Earth is buggy, and disliked by alot, but i love it with all my heart
That's just a handfull you can check out, they are all different in their own way, and they are free2play, so they are also free to uninstall if you so desire.
VirexGaming liked a post in a topic by MadDemon64 in I'm now writing for Gamespresso
I finally did it. I finally got into game journalism.
I now have a job writing for Gamespresso. It's not much, but it's a start. Come visit the site and look at my articles. Or maybe you know some juicy news before anyone else and want to pass it along? Any and all support is welcomed and appreciated!
If you see something written by Aaron Grenbaum, that's me. So far I only have two articles (this one and this one), but this will change quickly.
VirexGaming liked a post in a topic by Shagger in Fanboy Melts a PS4 pro then post picks online... and the worst part?
People are actually believing this!
Now, let me make it clear, I AM posting this as a very one sided point. That side being me... and actual common sense. The purpose of this is vent a bit on how annoying fanboys can be and a plea to anyone who reads this to not not jump on their bandwagons of idiocy like so many, including websites and journalists, have been drawn in by.
I'm not gonna link the website or article I found this as I don't believe any website taking this seriously deserves to have to have more traffic sent to them, but here is the image that's had every Playstation hater dancing before thinking it through;
This is fake. This is work of someone so sad and desperate to say bad about his nemesis "The Playstation" he/she bought a $350 console just to do this to it and claim the the PS4 Pro melted itself. How do I konw he/she's lying? Well, thankfully I know enough about engineering materials to see right away that is bullshit.
First off, to cause this kind of damage the plastic would have to get so much hotter that a PS4 Pro can actually get under normal working conditions and with every electrical fail-safe in the console and the persons house connected to the console to fail. This is only possible with a sever manufacturing fault, not a design fault. This could be a faulty unit at worst, but it's not. This was done on purpose, and I can prove it.
Plastic, as well as most other materials, expand when they get hot as the chemical bonds are weakened and become stretched. The expansion is more severe the closer the heat source is to the the said material. In other words, when a source of heat is hot enough and close enough to a material and if said material has a lower melting point than ignition point (as is the case with the plastic on a PS4 Pro and most other plastics), then the material will expand and eventually melt AWAY from the heat source. It simply can't move/expand towards it as the material closer to the source is expanding faster than the material further away.
So that brings me to back to the picture. You can clearly see the material is concaved, as is deformed and moving into the console. That means the heat source was on the OUTSIDE of the console. If the heat source was inside the console, the damaged material would be convexed, as in protruding out.
Now, to see some fanboy do this is pretty sad, but not that surprising. I could also see somebody wanting to get a reaction. If so, well done. Let's see where it gets you. It's also not surprising to see Xbox/PC fanboys jumping all over this and dancing in the rain. The disappointing part is that legitimate websites are actually buying this to. What happened to people? Why do people "Take Up Arms" for and/or against an electronic device that's made to provide nothing more than entertainment in one's free time? And games journalists totally pander to this because it brings allot of traffic to their websites.
Having opinions and expressing them in civilized debate is totally fine with me, can even be enjoyable and worthwhile, but this shit is hardly within bounds of normal. If anyone is wondering why some game companies don't take what we as gamers say seriously I think you have your answer. What if it were it to turn out there actually were a severe overheating and fire risk problem with the PS4 Pro? Do you think Sony are gonna take that seriously and address the issue quckly after this?
We're gamers. That doesn't make us anything special, but how can we be this stupid? Ultimately it doesn't matter what platform you spend your time gaming on, we all want the same thing, to enjoy this hobby we share, so can't this stupid shit just stop?
Anyway, rant over. Thanks for letting me vent. I know this wasn't a huge deal and much of my opinions on this are pretty obvious, but I had to let this one out.
VirexGaming liked a post in a topic by Apex Spartan in Star Citizen is free to play for the rest of the month
I opened up a discussion thread about the game this week and would you look at this...
It's free for 10 days now.
I suppose if anyone has a PC to handle the current build and wants to test out the game in the current state, you can do it here: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/promotions/Free-Fly-Fall-2016
Link to the full article: http://www.pcgamer.com/star-citizen-free/?utm_content=buffercd13e&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=buffer_pcgamerfb
I'm personally not interested since my PC is crap and I watched lots of videos of the game and all and I'm too lazy to bother trying it out in the early build. Also playing Civ6 and replaying ME3 and Dying Light the Following so my hands are full.
VirexGaming liked a post in a topic by Apex Spartan in Lost Ark CBT Gameplay 2016
I've been waiting for new gameplay for this forever and now they finally releases some gameplay from CBT. I've been following this game since it's announcment. It's a open world action MMORPG with a combat style of Diablo 3 / POE, but deeper and better looking. There was some new info released like that each class at certain point "evolves" to a better version of that class among some other things. Also what sets it apart from other ARPGs is that this has jobs like fishing, astrology, mining and other sandbox shit, you have a karma / reputation system, you can help or harm NPCs which affects your reputation, you can eavesdrop NPC in middle of conversations for secret quests and information and many other things and it's an open world you can explore.
From last information I remember, the game will have almost 18 classes and 7 startable ones.
No exact date has been released on Western Beta, but some sources said that there was lots of english material released for the game at some chinese gaming convention or whatever which could indicate that the western Beta could be coming soon, maybe near the end of this year. Asian MMOs are popular for coming back like after 2 years since they've been available in Asia and then by the time they come to west, they are outdated. I really hope that doesn't happen to this game.
Of course nothing has been confirmed if it will be F2P, or have a cashshop etc
While I personally think it looks stunning and gameplay looks great, I'm worried about the bussines model and if the game will be P2W or have expensive cashshop, for which Asian MMOs again are popular for.
Alexander452 liked a post in a topic by VirexGaming in So angry army what games have you enjoyed that you think were underrated
The entire Brother's in Arms Series. A true military shooter that never got the attention it really deserved and ultimately ended in a humiliating demise.
Such a shame.
VirexGaming liked a post in a topic by Apex Spartan in A video about people that are angry about Reviews.
So you made an account to post a video here, talking about this subject?
Let's be honest here, this subject is getting damn fuckin' annoying. Never was his channel focused on REVIEWS alone, because how fucking stupid would that be? EVERY channel has variety, it has to have it. Lots of his videos are actually pretty good and many people enjoy his interviews at E3 and developers.
People whine about Joe and hate him, but the only thing they do is give him more exposure and with it more money from his "advetisments", so it's fine, go ahead and "feed the troll" as the saying goes.
Whether or not his content is worse now, who cares. The guy has decided to take a break or take a new direction. People should give him a break.
VirexGaming liked a post in a topic by Ranisel in Overwatch / Overhyped
I don't think that's what he meant, Blizzard have always put Gameplay before Story in their games, but they atleast managed to make a few decent ones, their recent stories World Of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor and Starcraft were atrocious, just horrible. But I don't think an Arena Shooter NEEDS a story, you literally pick a character and shoot other characters, why do you need a story with that? What's the story of Quake? Backstories of Characters?
Anyway, as for the game itself, I personally don't like all the encouragement for switching between Characters or that there are Characters that are anything more than a backstory and visuals, but that's just personal preference. And while they DO look unique and colorful, that's about It, from what I've read about character backstories and Character lore, It's pretty ''by the list'' roster, you've got your Big Russian woman, you have the Female assassin/sniper ETC. But I also agree that the price is too high, especially on console and that '' Blizzard has made all the right noises about being committed to building on Overwatch, providing new heroes, maps and gametypes for free across the game’s lifespan. '' argument is quite dumb, what was the alternative to that? They'd make you pay 40$ for a game with no PvE/SP and even no Ranked/Competitive on launch and even MICROTRANSACTION , AFTER THAT they would be like ''Yeah guys we're bringing in new Characters and maps an' stuff, but you gotta pay''
But to be honest It absolutely is
Just take a look at The Escapist reviews for Battlefront EA:
The Escapist Nov 19, 2015 60 Star Wars: Battlefront does a fantastic job of transporting players into the Star Wars universe for a big initial kicker, but that ultimately fades when you realize how light it is on content and game features. A textbook case of style over substance.
And then Overwatch:
The Escapist May 24, 2016 100 Overwatch is a fast, fun, and fresh take on the class-based shooter. Blizzard has made sure its first new IP in 17 years is polished to perfection.
I don't mind that players love the game and find It refreshing, I mind that no one is outraged by the lack of content, microtransactions and Critic pandering, players should be able to love the game while acknowledging that.
Crazycrab liked a post in a topic by VirexGaming in Overwatch / Overhyped
I bought the 40 dollar edition of this game and I fully agree it's overhyped. Lacks content severely, the characters are a bit boring with no back story other than the CGI shorts, and the gameplay gets stale and repetitive quickly. This game was originally meant to be a free to play game and it's obvious that after making it a buy to play title, they didn't care enough to add any more content to it. But hey, it's Blizzard so fuck it. Pft.
Overwatch has about the same amount of content as Battlefront, Destiny, and Rainbow Six Siege and honestly the content isn't that much better.. but for some reason those games got shit on for their lack of content while Ovewatch gets to sit on a throne.(That throne will only last a month though. Overwatch's numbers will drop rapidly once the hype wears off.)
VirexGaming liked a post in a topic by Wade D McGinnis in No Man's Sky
Hearing this got pushed back a bit to hammer out any issues, kinda happy for that. Developers today always seem to have issues from publishers or their own interest with delaying a launch. Here we see the team come out and make a hard choice but one that could help the title.
Just pathetic that there is a small minority who think death threats are how you get results.
VirexGaming liked a post in a topic by Apex Spartan in Overwatch PC - AJSA
So I seen lots of people playing the game here in AJSA and there are few threads where people have been posting their Battle.net tags, so I decided it would be better to post them ALL in one thread so everyone can add each other and see the tags in a normal list.
I'll keep this post updated every time someone adds their Battle.net
I'll post my tag here as well so you folks who didn't, add me. I'll be a bit busy for next 2-3 days as I'm full of work, but I'm free after that and can play. Would be cool if we could all team up as much as we can together. We can use the AJSA discord server or use the in-game VOiP.

Apex Spartan liked a post in a topic by VirexGaming in Favorite combat in a game?
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Although it's a bit of a button spammy combat system that borrows heavily from other games like Assassin's Creed, it has some extremely entertaining skills and features that make it the most satisfying combat system out there, in my opinion.
VirexGaming liked a post in a topic by Lhouraii in Why Do People Like Halo??
Thank you for your honest and helpful reply!
Yes, I imagine you're right. Multiplayer would probably be quite fun. I guess I'm just used to playing games alone or couch-co-op. I really need to invest in an Xbox-Live account! XD
Thanks for your input!
Lhouraii liked a post in a topic by VirexGaming in Why Do People Like Halo??
Well Halo isn't really made to be complex or to require brain use like the way RPGs do. Also, it's certainly not meant to be bought for it's campaign; it's popular because of it's multiplayer. Just another twitch shooter like Call of Duty, in my opinion. Basically meant to be silly fun without any sort of thinking involved. So my suggestion is to just try the multiplayer and see if you enjoy it and if you don't, you may never be a Halo fan, sadly.
Raspharus liked a post in a topic by VirexGaming in How Does This PC Build Sound To You? Suggestions?
This has already been extremely helpful. I'll definitely be getting the power supply you recommended, Raspharus. I'll also look into the R9 390 a bit more.
Glad to hear I don't have any reason to spend extra money on the i7, aswell.
As for the Ram, does this seem like a good one? Since 16 GB won't do any harm, I might as well get a 16GB since the price isn't too bad. DDR4 16GB of RAM and also has the 2133mhz. http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-2133MHz-Non-ECC-HX421C14FBK2-16/dp/B00TY6A1LY/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1457446311&sr=1-1&keywords=ddr4+2133mhz
This is my first PC build, I've tinkered a bit with old PCs just to get familiar with the components, but other than that, that's all the experience I have. I've been watching as many guides and tutorials as I can.
Edit: After just a little bit research, I can already see that the R9 390 is a better GPU so I'll most likely be getting it. Highly appreciate you suggesting it.
