apparently rpg’s aren’t shooters even if they posses the primary defining aspect of the shooter/fps/tps genre.
apparently rpg’s control schemes that are particular to rpg’s are not a defining aspect of the rpg video game genre.
apparently arguing otherwise is illogical and irrational. apparently wanting proper rpg controls is self interested and irrational.
in the future all rpg’s will be shooters. and this will be called new and innovative and evolutionary. disregard that rpg controls/interfacing as has evolved a great deal over the past 20-30 years, while fps interfacing and controls are much the same today as the were in 1998.
i discovered mountain has an ending. i’m glad i happened to be atk to see it. it was quite interesting. and has gotten me thinking of the presentation of the sort of story like aspects of the text printing the game does, which i hadn’t previously considered.
then you start over. which… i took some fraps of and will upload soon. though i think i might wait until some more random objects have flown into my mountain first.
#wildstar - posting this video again because it’s exhibit A.
have you ever noticed in mmo’s how hardcore instanced pvpers always complain and demand a sense of progression that takes the form of being more powerful than other players?
all while claiming it’s their 1337 player skillz that is the method for obtaining said progression, despite taking every available opportunity to metagame and exploit their way to the top of that progression?
well for the past 6+ months top pvpers in wildstar have been campaigning along these lines. all while talking up their 1337 skillz and the evolutionary nature of the action combat which totally requires 1337 player skillz unlike boring old tab targetting mmo’s like wow which are totally easy mode for scrubs.
and yet here is this shining fucking example of what happens when these guys get their way. i don’t see how player skill even remotely factors into what’s in this video. the only player skillz i am exhibiting here is the ability to race my ganking partner to melt our opponents before the other has an opportunity to get a single hit in.
this is not max teir pvp gear. this is a couple pieces shy of the entry level non rated set. wearing this gear that allows me to instant melt non pvp geared players with minimal effort or thought, i will get in turn face melted by top teir pvp geared players in the same manner i melt these players in this video.
take it fwiw. it is what it is.
