So I finished Dark Souls 3 a bit ago. And it was absolutely the most amazing game experience I have ever had. You thought I liked the previous Dark Souls games? I'm not sure they even hold a candle.
If you've played any of the previous Dark Souls games or Bloodborne you can see how it has evolved. They took bits and pieces from all their previous games and learned from their mistakes along the way. The end result looks good and feels good. Though it is maybe a bit harder than the previous games.
The fact that it was so good, makes it even sadder that it is destined to be the last one in the series. But with DLC coming and the standard online experience, I'll have plenty to do still for a while even though I finished it.
I know I harped on about previous Dark Souls games. Forget all that. Try this game. You won't regret it.
You know, I don't think I could play Swtor again. Not after I've played other mmo's and seen how lacking swtor really is in comparison to them. Now, I've dabbled with other mmo's here and there while playing swtor, but until recently I hadn't fully invested myself into them.
I don't think there is much that swtor can offer that competes with others I've tried. Graphics? Nope. Content? Not even close. Hell, I think it even gets beaten in story an awful lot. Guild wars is better. ESO is better. WoW is better. Rift is better. Neverwinter too, but too much is locked behind paywalls.
After all my mmo hopping, I've finally landed in WoW, and I've been playing a lot there. And while playing it, I realise just how tiny Swtor is. Now sure, it may not have the best graphics, but its easy to see why it's been the go-to mmo for many years. It is big and beautiful, almost as dauntling large as real life can be some times. And it just has so much more stuff you can do.
Hell, you can even fly and swim. Swtor just has you respawn to medcenter if you, the Great Lord of the Sith, so much as step in a puddle.
Now all of this can apply to some of the other mmo's I tried in other capacities, some exceeding WoW in areas. They have strengths and weaknesses like anything else.
But again. This just makes me realise that Swtor really has lost its way. It's Star Wars, yet it's just not epic enough. And really, the only reason I started it or got into mmo's in general through it, I was a major fan of the original Kotor games. They're slowly turning it into a solo player story game anyway. I'm not sure it could be called an mmo anymore so much as a subscription-based, money-grabbing, single player game with an online component.
Don't forget your 20% drop chance for Nim loot in Nightmare, fubar class balance, and HK-55 subscription with a bonus mission if you give them money for half a year!
