Great. So now not only will we have to climb towers to unlock the map, but we'll get tired along the way and have to pay real money for an in-game energy drink.

Or you have to pay to unlock the towers after you've climbed them. And then pay to get back down quickly, else you have to slowly climb backdown.

Hopefully they're not monitoring this forum, because I'd hate to have just given them ideas.

Not exactly gaming news, but this is probably close enough.


I'm sorry, I don't feel comfortable with having a pool of water sitting on top of $1000+ of computer hardware. This feels like a disaster waiting to happen. And no, I don't have a liquid cooled CPU for the same reason.

Plus add to that the fact that it's thirty pounds of water sitting on top of your case, along with any decorations. And the heat from the computer might not be fantastic for the fish.

Gotta wonder if the people interested in such a thing just want to use it for phishing scams.

Ok I suck at jokes, but at least it’s Friday!

It's simple, all you need is an additional cooler. That way you can get a temperature regulation for the fish. It's either that or get tropical climate fish or decorative fish. Sometimes sacrifices need to be made. How else is anyone supposed to get there 240 frames per second at 4K? It's a noble sacrifice! The fish will be rewarded in heaven!

Guess they never played that firefighting arcade game from Sega, back in the late 90s and early 2000s.

Still not paying.

Kinda done with MMOs, but I feel like this is something New World was trying to be.

Eat your heart out, Amazon

Done? I never even started.
There was a time when I was super into MMOs. But then every single one of them tried to be the next WOW, or make everything monetized. I am burnt out

Shame, because as much as I acknowledge the success of ff14 (the 2.0 version) and actually treat its player base with respect, I don't think I will ever play it. Same for this game as well

It is a shame because SWTOR while gameplay it was a bit WoW-like, it was a genuine step up imo with a bunch of great stories and all fully voice acted. I'm actually sad that newer MMO's still can't be bothered with voice acting when Star wars did it 10 years ago.
