We saw the release of Black Desert’s Korean MMO Black Desert Online. So I’m here to tell you why I think you should give this MMO a try and what sets it apart from the countless many other MMOs already on the market. As we all know, the MMO market is quite saturated now with the likes of World of Warcraft, Wildstar, black desert daum cash Star Wars: The Old Republic, and many more. MMOs that come out nowadays need to really shine to set themselves apart from all the others and make names for themselves.
First up, a bit of background. I have been playing the KR version of Black Desert since OBT around January 2014, using an Xbox 360 controller from day 1. I’ve been playing Black Desert pretty much exclusively with controllers since then, upgrading to an Xbox One controller around June 2014, then back to my trusty X360 controller when my Xbone one got bricked around December, and finally onto the Steam Controller this January 2015.
I’ve used controllers for all content in the game, from PvE grinding, to bosses, to gathering, to minigames, to PvP duels and large scale siege wars. Hopefully this kind of experience will end up being helpful to anyone keen on trying out the Steam Controller (or any controller really) in Black Desert. Mainly in the sense that he goes on and on about how most of the P2W aspects will not affect you if you don’t play x amount of hours per day. While I plan to play pretty extensively with some friends, even if I only played a bit, those aspects don’t go away… It’s the fact that they have advertised that these costumes are only cosmetic, (which is clearly not the case).
If every player who didn’t put copious amounts of time in this game had the same mentality as this guy, nothing would get changed! The developers would walk all over us because the community wouldn’t voice their opinion. So yeah that’s my 2 cents. The bonuses from the cash shop are a big enough deal to mention, no matter how many hours you put into the game. We’ve seen Black Desert Online before. Its character creation is incredibly beautiful. But what its gameplay like? From the looks of it, quick. Now, we get a very good look at just how quick it is in glorious hi-def and 60 frames per second.
Yoshinoro Ono, producer of the game series, previously stated that “We can’t have something in the game that makes people think, ‘This is not acceptable,'” according to NeoGAF. While he stressed that the decision was internal and for the purpose of keeping objectionable content within reasonable limits, it was met with its share of opposition. bdo dc AlphaOmegaSin might not be too far off on his domino effect theory. When Black Desert’s “Dead or Alive Xtreme 3″ was announced in August for the Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita, hopeful players in the West were shocked to find that it was to be “exclusively for Japan and Asian market,” according to a DOA Facebook post.
In response to a concerned user’s post, the company’s social media team claim that they do not want to talk about such issues, but it has taken a year or two of thought to come to this decision. In his most recent YouTube video, released only hours ago, vlogger AlphaOmegaSin shared his thoughts on the development, and the title of the video says it all: “Street Fighter V Censored – Another Company Caves in to Extremists.” He claims that censorship has no place in entertainment, and that while the move regarding Mika seems shallow, one must go deeper to look at the big picture — in other words, it’s a domino effect.
