I heard that the servers slow time down when a large cluster(f***) of people get together to fire at each other, instead of the lag start skipping everybody around, and the ones with better net connection wins.
I once thought I was playing Eve for several hours, turns out I just change my PC wallpaper to a starscape and left Excel open
Eve, that video game that is way more fun and entertaining to read about all the crazy things that happen instead of actually playing it.
I had no love for EVE while playing it briefly, but I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of reading up on the craziness that goes on.
God I just want to pilot a small fighter in the middle of that with VR. Thousands of human piloted ships all around me in virtual space. Such a shame that EVE Valkyrie isn’t integrated in this manner with the main game.
Landstalker for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive was a pretty good isometric ARPG back in the day, and Solstice for the NES, while more of an isometric puzzle RPG, was also okay...Hard as balls, though:
I liked sacred 2. ITs not as polished, but once i understood how the skill system worked. Plus it scratched that itch at that time, me and a friend played through it over and over.
Wow Nox! I remember buying that game in a bargain bin for like 5$ in a store that doesn’t exist anymore. I really though it would be bad but I still got it and damn I loved it!
and now after all these years you tell me that the story is different for the 3 classes!? Need to go back and play it again! I only did the…
I’d like to have an aRPG to play on my console so I can use a controller, slouch on the coach and play with my friends who don’t have PCs to play games on instead of being at a desk using KBM.
I have Diablo 3 for when I want to play a game with KBM. If Diablo 3 could get account sharing between PC and console I’d do…
I remember as a big Diablo 2 fan renting Sacred 2 on the ps3, man was I disappointed. I don’t know what it was about it, if it was the bugs, that it just didn’t play right on consoles, or maybe it actually wasn’t that good, but something just felt off about sacred 2, it just wasn’t my cup of tea.
I’ve never really understood that reasoning. If you already have a better game to play - why would you even switch to your console to play the other? And if you’re going to switch anyway, then what is the major distinction between playing MH on console rather than PC anyway?
Great list, thanks for this! Couple I had not heard of I’ll try right away! The original Torchlight is worth an honorable mention as well, especially if you like Torchlight 2. IMO Titan Quest was an amazing game. If you want a more arcade’y experience, take a look at Crimson Alliance (2013 XBLA). It’s a much more…
Torchlight 2 is still the greatest ARPG ever made alongside Diablo 2. For $5, you get over 1,000 hours worth of content. The mod community is fantastic as well. It’s a damn shame we won’t see Torchlight 3 anytime soon, but Hob looks interesting.
I have to add Exanima to this list. It’s an unorthodox iso dungeon ARPG and features the most amazing, realistic, physics-based combat I’ve ever seen. It’s on Steam and DRM free on Bare Mettle’s website.
I wish Marvel Heros would make it to consoles already. I’d play it then. When I’m at my PC I have Diablo 3 to play and MH looks like it would play really well on consoles. I know D3 is there already but I don’t want to play that game on two different accounts.
I still have a few haunted mementos, one of which has been in the first slot of my main’s backpack since the pre-LK event. Every once in a while when I’m playing and want some cash, I try and sell the others, but so far no dice.
Usually, a WoW list will make me think back to the good old days, but this one thankfully reaffirms my departure. I wasted untold hours hunting half of these items, and the worst was that I killed Poseidus just two days before they added the mount to his loot table.
when i quit almost 10 years ago i had Time-Lost(even got him for a couple of friends), Dirge recipe, Murloc Suit, Celestial Dragon (beforethe whole pokemon bit) and the list goes on.
I deliberately got the chimaerok recipe back during Wrath of the Lich King after finding out the questline was going the way of the dodo in Cataclysm. Ended up selling it during Warlords of Draenor for 300k gold, no regrets. I can use that gold to re-sub sometime during Legion.
