I just give up when they talk about this. When they say barrier to entry I think what they mean is, "I don't have the time/want to spend the time learning a game." That I can totally understand, but it makes the tabletop gamer inside of me cry. Also, it totally is about when you were introduced to this stuff - Jeff seems like he played a lot of arcade games when he was a kid, so of course he's going to hate a game that requires 10's of hours just to get into and be able to play "properly."

I've played many terrible free-to-play mmo's, but this is the first one that felt like it's trying to be bad. You have to roll for character stats with the higher stat amounts exceedingly rare? What does that even accomplish!?
RPGs used to do that all the time.
And it doesn't really fit in an MMO I feel.
Yeah, there's a time and place for strict tabletop rules. An MMO is certainly not one of them. I tried downloading this last night, but it kept looping back to the community page instead of downloading the game. I guess I'm glad, since the "Wizardry" part of this game looks to be the part that it's in a dungeon?
@Petiew: I came back in and caught a tournament only a few weeks ago (maybe a month or two, I dunno to be honest) and it was pretty bad. Literally two assists were used by the entirety of top 32 and the point character was one of two characters. Add in that it was essentially a high-low game into TOD, and I don't really care about the game at all. Like a really dumb version of GG, minus every single mind game and trap game in it.
Sucks, because I wanted a good 3v3 game since I never really jived with MvC3 at all. None of the characters felt right.
For those of you who have not played or do not own a PSP, Ys 1 and 2 is making it's way to Steam this February with an enhanced port by XSEED Games.
Get ready for some BUMPING ACTION!
I will soo buy it. Come one Xseed I want trails in the sky on steam....
Don't even joke about that, man. Also, yay because I haven't had a PSP since about 2006 or something like that.
Jesus, I still have EUIII to dig into (thanks again, btw) and all of this fucking CK2 dlc is coming out...How am I ever going to have enough time to get into EUIV?
The restlessness stuff sounds like I wouldn't even have to worry about it with how I've been playing recently. I'll be hitting up the Paradox forums to see what the hell this adventurer stuff is all about, and the rebels possibly being led by pretenders or what not. God, every time I think I've had enough of this game there are more reasons to go back.
RPS, PCGamer, and RPGFan are the only sites that I really go to other than GB on a regular basis. I sometimes poke around in Gamespy ever since Rorie was picked up. I lurk in RPGCodex occasionally, but I can only do it for about five minutes before the terrible people over there with their stupid fucking terminology give me a headache.
I do, however, listen to a ton of gaming podcasts.
Human cesspool does not begin to describe the vast majority of that place. Then again that goes for the internet as a whole, it's just that the levels of pompous asshole and insane fanboyism are way off the charts.
That's ridiculous. I wanted MBAAC to win, but I knew Melty getting in a second time would require a miracle (especially with such a poverty-ass poverty game.)
Glad ST won, at least. That game I at least enjoy.
@FluxWaveZ said:I don't really have a preference for which game gets in, but I'm curious as to why you're opposed to Skullgirls winning. Those guys worked hard on the game, it would have been nice for them to get the recognition they deserved for it. I don't think sales were that good so this could have brought more people into the game. I mean everyone is obviously rooting for one game over the other, but it seems like you were actively opposed to Skullgirls taking it. How come?
but at least Skullgirls won't take it.
I think it's because it's a bad game and the community is pretty bad, or at least was dying way back a few months after its release. I haven't paid much attention to the FGC lately, but Skullgirls was a swing and a miss when it was all 2v2 with the same assist or 3v3 with the same two assists. I'm sure the guys who put out SF:EX worked hard, but that doesn't stop the game from being bad. EVO shouldn't be about "recognition," but about games the community wants to play.
