I haven't played this game since about Dec. Is it time to come back to my lowbie character again or does the PvE still feel like a million Collect X kill X quests with some interesting text here and there?

Nice article Edward. I am waiting for someone or something to convince me to play FE again. Sadly, I cancelled in March, but I really enjoyed the game. This write-up is whetting my whistle a bit :)

I've heard a lot of people saying they've been waiting for something to bring them back to FE....and while the writers here are fantastic and their love for FE is never masked; I thought I'd take a quick poke at the subject and go over a few of the new additions to the game and see if it helps anyone.

First things first... because I have a personal bone to pick with this paticular topic I thought I'd start here. The new weather system is a fantastic idea, I love the thought of trampling through a wastland and getting a shit storm of lightning and rain on me for a few dozen miles of riding. The thought that too much would impede anyones gaming is taking to much to heart over at FE for the fact that in 6 hours of riding in S2(not sure if it's in all areas as of yet) yesterday I saw nill in the likes of rain, puddles, clouds or otherwise. with Triple monitors (120", 42", and 25") and a dual core GPU I say bring it, make me feel like I'm actually in a thundertsorm make my surround sound rattle the walls with thunder, for god sakes make the GAME into a MOVIE.... scratch that into a LIFE.

Second off the serendipity system... some say a ploy to make us want to search aimlessly in areas spending dozens of hours looking for an item for its overall look and name rather than its abilities... some say we just haven't experienced it and we are seeing FE's frugal randomization. Personally I'm a crafter build I seldom go into towns and even more seldom use the roads, and I as of yet haven't come acrossed any. I really don't know what to say on this topic anymore than this... cool idea i geuss but who's gonna waste hours on the far off chance to get an item for looks, name, and possibly prestige; when you can't modify the looks of a way to another similair weapon type or be stuck using that item when equal level items are far better.

So as to not seem like an article of its own I'll wrap it up short with this... Yes there are improvements and changes needed in FE as there is in any MMO imo: Rifles need a vast improvement in the game, Pistols need to be brought down a little, the need for a more diverse crafting(as far as amount of items and where LVL 50+ crafting will be lead to). AND MOST OF ALL WHY CAN I STILL NOT SWIM!!!

If there was a MMO where all you had to do was craft and it had limitless components and limitless craft items I'd be there, but for now FE is where its at more post-apocalyptic gamplay and that's where I'll be....

see you in the wastelands!
