Just an update - 12/30/2011

Well with 2011 pretty much said and done, 2012 is looking pretty awesome. Things are already starting off nicely, like with Wakfu finally entering open beta for US, TERA being released in Spring and even WoW's Mists of Pandaria expansion looks appealing (and that's coming from someone who's never wanted to touch WoW at all.)

I guess I would like to take a moment just to say thanks to all the random viewers that visit my small little blog. Even though I haven't been posting as often as I should, I really just enjoying having a nice outlet to myself where I can post my thoughts on MMOs and all the games I play, even if most of my posts aren't "deep" or "intriguing" like most people would expect from blogs. So yeah... thanks for the hits!

In other news: DizzyPW over at OnRPG got some inspiration from an article over at about getting the writers to form a prediction of what will happen in the online gaming industry for 2012. I decided to throw my hat into that prediction, too.

Here's a little tidbit for you all:

"My prediction leans toward the future of the free-to-play gaming market. I predict that new MMO titles will come out and will follow down the F2P route in the RIGHT way. With only a couple of games that I could literally count on my fingers as true Free-to-play games, such League of Legends, TF2 and Tribes: Ascend, game publishers will look at these games and see the proper way to monetize the game in the F2P format without instead of trying to flat out rob their players, so most of publishers then follow their example."

Will my prediction come true? I sure as hell hope so. Expect to see more predictions from the writers of OnRPG real soon.

One last thing I'd like to mention for anyone that's be browsing my blog for info on the upcoming GunZ 2: TSD by MAIET: I came across an interesting .gif animation on the GunZFactor Forums the other day:

As you may have heard: MAIET isn't going to reintroduce K-style for GunZ 2, but they will be keeping the core values of K-style. Here you can see that instead of being able to perform slash-shots from GunZ 1, you can instead perform shot-slashes.

Credit goes to peaceofpi of the GunZFactor Forums for posting the .gif animation.
