Comments for Nomadic Gamers, eh! https://nomadicgamerseh.com Thu, 23 May 2019 15:55:45 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=5.2.1 Comment on Skyscale by stargrace https://nomadicgamerseh.com/2019/05/22/skyscale/comment-page-1/#comment-68679 Thu, 23 May 2019 15:55:45 +0000 https://nomadicgamerseh.com/?p=10925#comment-68679 That’s not the main complaint I saw in-game or on reddit, and since it changes the 28th, shortly after it released, I’m not sure how much “faith restoring” you expect them to do. Which people are also complaining about now. Either way they’re damned.

Comment on Skyscale by Bhagpuss https://nomadicgamerseh.com/2019/05/22/skyscale/comment-page-1/#comment-68678 Thu, 23 May 2019 15:06:54 +0000 https://nomadicgamerseh.com/?p=10925#comment-68678 The primary complaint wasn’t that timegating meant it would take a week to get the Skyscale. The problem was that the way the timegating was originally designed around daily resets meant that players who can only play at certain times of day due to real-life circumstances were looking at weeks or months of timegating. For some people with particularly limited play-windows it would have been all but impossible.

For a game that sells itself on extreme user-friendliness and accessibility, this was a terrible faux pas. Unfortunately it’s just one in a seemingly endless series of tone-deaf design errors that have all but destroyed the original, inclusive ethos of the game and sent GW2 into a spiral of elitism and exclusion.

The changes ANet have made so far are admissions of error but they need to do a lot more to restore faith, something I don’t think they can or will do at this point.

Comment on A Skimmer Mount (finally) by Naithin https://nomadicgamerseh.com/2019/04/28/a-skimmer-mount-finally/comment-page-1/#comment-68599 Mon, 29 Apr 2019 01:01:42 +0000 https://nomadicgamerseh.com/?p=10838#comment-68599 Congrats! If I recall rightly, this was the last mount to be obtained from what I would consider ‘normal’ play in the xpac. Although since I last played I believe more have been added.

The only other mount past the Skimmer when the xpac came out was the Gryphon, which I’ve already forgotten the requirements for, but remember thinking ‘…Nope’ to at the time. xD

Comment on Happy Birthday To Me by Naithin https://nomadicgamerseh.com/2019/04/14/happy-birthday-to-me/comment-page-1/#comment-68540 Tue, 16 Apr 2019 06:48:42 +0000 https://nomadicgamerseh.com/?p=10790#comment-68540 Happy Birthday! :D

Looking forward to what you think of Farming Sim. Haha. It’s been one on my list of games of ‘I kinda give side-eye too, but actually think they might be kinda nifty, especially in co-op, maybe?’

Comment on Lets Talk Steam vs. Epic (again) by Naithin https://nomadicgamerseh.com/2019/04/08/lets-talk-steam-vs-epic-again/comment-page-1/#comment-68514 Tue, 09 Apr 2019 11:59:59 +0000 https://nomadicgamerseh.com/?p=10771#comment-68514 I hear you. There are certainly elements on both side of this argument which are not exactly showering the world with good grace. Such is the internet, I suppose.

I find this a difficult argument to engage with though in many locations as a result. But I think more than the vitriol, the comment that makes me grit my teeth the most at the moment are those to the effect of, ‘lol, I don’t get wai so mad. It’s just another free launcher!1!’
