My first comment on gamespot, hi folks!
I tried it and I thought it was more-of-the-same. I have League of Legends and DOTA 2, this game was very similar to those two. I don't think I need this one too.
I will play it some more tonight and see if I change my mind but I don't think I will...
If there is annoying stuff buying in every mission again and againt im going to uninstall, why cant make rpg progressions, in other mobas everywhere is this annoying stuff buying wich kills game, progres should be permanent, and u can upgrade char after mission and he have everything ubought for him from start till end, if not its annoying crap!
I love when people complain about getting to play new games for free. If you don't like the game, that is fine, but Gamespot gives away keys to a lot of MMO type games and if it isn't your fancy, you don't have to take a key. MOBAs have been around for awhile and are very challenging games, but also can be a ton of fun. At least you aren't paying for this.
Bleh! I got Dota 2 for free, tried it out and decided that I don't like it. MOBA or ARTS games pretty much take the worst from RTS games and the worst from action RPGs and blend them together. I can't command huge armies, like in a real strategy game and I don't have complete control over the only character that I have, like in an action RPG. Why can't Gamespot give away beta keys to games that actually look like fun?
@JLCrogue Like what? That's not a rhetorical question. I'm really askin for some good examples. I wanna try out somethin new AND fun, as you put it.
@June-GS @JLCrogue I didn't mention anything about brand new gameplay. I actually just prefer new innovations to previous genres of games. What would be awesome is if gamespot gave away beta keys to games like Destiny or The Elder Scrolls Online, but that's not going to happen.
@JLCrogueYeah, I know, I just asked for what you consider "good enough", regardless of your specific criteria. "...prefer new innovations to previous genres..." -- Well, if that's your criterion, isn't that what they're doing? Check out the fair GamesRadar article about Sins. If the MOBA genre "innovations" listed there aren't enough for you, then you mean your 2 examples do qualify as "innovative enough" for the MMOG genre? (or non-MMOG as Bungie describes it,lol) Well, I guess we'll all find out WHEN they come out. And no, I haven't tried Sins yet, so who knows, maybe you're right about it.
And about the beta keys for your examples, yeah, you're right, it's not gonna happen. So yeah, these free keys are better than nothin, at least for now. But I'd surely be glad if you turn out to be wrong about the keys (hint,hint GameSpot,LAWL).
I think it is stupid that you have to pay to be a founder
founder used to mean that you were part of the beta
@shadowhunter0 No, it used to mean you bought the game or pre-ordered or subbed from day one.. don't know where you are getting this from.. o0
I think if they are making consouls more like computers:they should make important things like graphics engine an easy access remove replace upgradable. as parts become cheaper you have the option to keep pace with pc evolution. whatever advantage a console has as a dedicated game machine could improve its image with pc gamers if they could use the time they take to make the new slimmer and shinier version of there device and and instead an improved graphics card. or something more refined along these lines of thought.
I flipped a few switches behind the scenes, so now all readers should be able to access these beta keys instead of just GameSpot members.
