Want an indication of how poor today was? Normally we get a couple of pages of comments instead of just a few comments like today!
haha I know, the only reason I posted was in the hope nDreams would see it,.. lol honestly besides posting spoilers for the ppl starting the game late that just want the answers, there's no real reason to post anything & that's why we all basically just post our theories on the storyline, I still don't feel like I wasted my money but today made me feel like we are being treated like fools!
As far as the recent days, which i just caught up on (thats why i've been so quiet lately ) I've been extremely intrigued with the story the last few days. If the entire game had this intense of a story, i think the reviews by everyone would be more generally positive. Sure, yesterday was a recap of the day before, but at least it wasn't another holomail day . Basically, I think nDreams has stepped up there game since around day 40, in my opinion. It's felt more like how i'd imagined that xi 2 would be like. I will buy episode 2, especially if it keeps or even betters the feel the last week or so has had in continuum.
Its not the story that upsets me, this game was marketed under the XI name, so alot of us vets assumed that XI:C would be like XI......
WRONG..... IMO its an overpriced read a long story, watered down pokemon/WAR card game battle, lots of walking around a bland dull area looking for rubix cubes, and 3/4 of the daily missions have been "read your email, now your mission is done for the day" **bleep**???? AND WE PAID FOR THIS????? Did i leave anything out??
Now the original XI took place in multiple spaces, you had to use real brainpower for most of the days objectives, the minigames that we had to do were so much better, there was much more teamwork games (XI:C onlt had win 100 stupid card games, and most of us just traded wins with a friend (snowcrash was always empty, plus 100, really, nobody will ever play that game again after XI:C is over) way more to it.
There was way more to XI than XI:C, i feel bad for new XI players thinking this is awesome,
So if sony funded the original, why couldnt they fund XI:C? This time they would have got paid, maby XI:C could have been more like the original, now the name is tarnished in alot of vets eyes. I for one will not pay into chapter 2, i see it as being the same as this one. I know nDreams tryed but really dropped the ball by using the XI name to sell this. It should have been a all new name, THIS WAS NOT XI IMO.....
