Trying out Archeage on a lark.
PRO: Beautiful character creation.
CON: Can’t make a black cat. Lots of options but everyone looks the same because all the options are in minute sliders on the eyes, nose, mouth. Why can’t I change my skin tone as cat, seriously.
PRO: Kitty kitty meow meow.
CON: CAN’T BE BLACK? Also why is the ear-fluff a one-sided texture? It’s weird I can’t see the fluff from the back.
PRO: Combat is okay I guess?
CON: Quests are boring, samey kill and gather. Also they are all text boxes. I don’t read the text boxes and the cutscenes are also boring. By consequence, I have no idea what’s going on.
PRO: World is populated, seems lively.
CON: UI is crowded and oogly. Everyone’s names run together. Seriously gross to look at and I haven’t figured out how to adjust it. Also, game is poorly optimized so it takes a while for NPCs to load. (Seriously I run FFXIV just fine, how is this one more intensive for my processor?)
PRO: SCREENSHOT GAME IS HELLA STRONGK.
CON: There is no con.
