It's a really fun gameplay loop, but I'm really concerned about it's longevity. If each planet is as short as the beta planet, and if there aren't many planets, I may blow through it too quickly. Also, I feel the storytelling has been really lacking thus far. I've changed my mind from a preorder to a "wait and see" mentality.
I am completely and utterly out at this point. The last few times I went back for a month, I didn't even play past a week. I just really hate the changes they are making to the game with WoD--constantly removing any ability to have unique builds or rotations, taking out key abilities for certain classes, and making everything STUPID easy--and have no interest in ever going back.
This is part of the reason why I plan on waiting until AFTER launch to buy this game. I don't feel great about the amount/quality of content presented thus far. I know it's just a beta, but the way it's presented makes it seem pretty close to final.
Also, I feel like I've read this thread already, but maybe it was on Gamefaqs and not here.
My favorite part of the week!
Prepare for sensory overload. This video is as energetic and boisterous as any other Denpa video. This time, however, it's paired with a ridiculous video that seems to just try and be as crazy as it can. I definitely don't think release is as tight as the last one (Sakura Apparition), but it's still a pretty decent song.
This is one of my early favorites from this year. A rocking beat mixed with some fantastic vocals from both the male lead and the guest female Lil' Fang. I absolutely adore the chorus--the two voices and racing tempo mix together beautifully. I've easily listened to this 100+ times since its debut in March.
For those of you who aren't aware, Beast is a predominantly Korean male pop group that occasionally does songs in Japanese. This is easily one of their best Japanese releases. I LOVE the main beat/riff--it packs so much energy and sticks in my head for hours after I hear it. The singing is okay, but I don't usually prefer male groups (as you may have noticed already). Still, even with my predisposition to dislike songs like these, I really enjoy it.
Another decent, but not great, week of KPOP videos. Here's what I have to share.
Delight is back (with new members and a new name, if I read it right?) with Hate You! This is technically an EDM song--one trying to masquerade as an upbeat pop song at the beginning--but it's a pretty promising song in my opinion. The bridge is fantastic and leads into an decently memorable chorus.
Heyne is a relatively new artist who just released a new video for Red Lie. I don't think the song itself is very interesting, but I do like Heyne's voice quite a bit--a bit deeper and sassier than your average cutesy pop star. It does feel a bit like she's trying to crib some style from Kyary (yikes, a JPOP reference! Don't shoot me!), but she does it well. I like the video too, which uses some frame tricks to great effect.
This last one is the most interesting--Wish List from Taurine. It's a very unique sounding song, reminiscent of a much older sound complete with (fantastic) harmonizing vocals and a jazzy beat. The lyrics are a bit silly and the song lacks energy, but it's a fascinating change of pace for the genre.
I'm rather unexcited about everything coming out in October (at least, that I know of). Shadow of Mordor could be interesting, but I need more information before I know for sure. Alien: Isolation seems a bit dicey, so I want to see it in action before I commit. I don't know what to think about The Evil Within due to its inconsistent coverage. Evolve seems entirely uninteresting to me as someone who isn't a huge fan of multiplayer-only games. I have long since given up caring about Assassin's Creed. Even if DA was still coming out in October, I don't think I would have necessarily played it, since it isn't the sequel to DA:O that I want.
It's just a bunch of games that I'm not convinced about yet. I may end up buying one--or all--of these games, but right now I couldn't care less about the lot.
