I don’t know what I was doing in November to have let that K/DA “Pop/Stars” track (or the story behind it) sneak past my radar. Wow.

So thank you, Justin, for providing me my next remix project!

Crazy cash while not ruining his reputation where it matters. Before celebs used to do any diarrhea ad that came their way you’d never see one doing an ad stateside – but they would do them in Asia – where it never mattered. Now it’s a level playing field but a publicist still wouldn’t put an A level star on a piss poor video game ad.

Honestly, I’m shocked Tera didn’t take advantage of their shared connection to PUBG back when it was the hottest thing out there.

Speaking of TERA, I just uninstalled it to make way for ESO, which I am determined to enjoy and play for more than a few days this time. This is because Justin goes on about it on the MOPCast almost as much as Bree goes on about her SWG emu, and I have thus been brainwashed into reinstalling it. Thanks Justin! :D

I’m surprised you’d even play Tera at all, I wouldn’t give it the time of day, I mean I tried to get into it on a few occasions but I could not get into it, the two things I mainly disliked were the graphics and UI, even at launch, the graphics looked ugly to me. (not their quality, but their overall feeling and colors looked bad)

Ah no, I loved that game for a long time. It was my fantasy home in-between WoW and EQ2. The graphics were awesome (imo) and the combat was refreshingly different. It’s like if WoW and DDO had a child and sent it to school in Korea. :D

Damn,now I’m regretting uninstalling it… :D

What I hate in games like Tera will surprise you. It has too small chat letters and makes it hard to watch chat while you fight, lol. It also boiled an older graphs card of me – its something its good at(probably doesnt limit FPS?)

Oh man, I hated it before I even got it installed, because I didn’t know until after I was almost finished downloading it on my slow-ass ADSL line, that it was a 50 Gb install that needed an *extra* 50 Gb to unpack itself into before installing. So I had to uninstall a ton of games and stuff to make the space on that drive. I was pulling my hair out then, but it won me over in the end. :D

I liked it but checked in a hurry, I may re-check at some point to see if it worths playing. I like defensive chars so I went with that guy that holds a joust spear that is bigger than him, lol

Yes and charging with it in top speed – I am pretty sure during this move I could reach a mob faster than any mount
