THE GRINDSTONE TRIBUNAL:
This time, we have Karochi and Tebble joining us, along with Karis and Dreskar again, to allow their unfiltered opinions on this title, in addition to mine. Did you all enjoy this month?
And this is it. The final block of three. Four years of episodes! With that we are all caught up, and the road for the future postings can continue. I hope you enjoyed me attempting to enrage you with my filters off, and hopefully understand why I say what I say in my videos, as well as how I say it. But first, let’s close out this bore fest with the lackluster puffs of some wet fireworks.
Out of the Nexonite frying pan and into the game that’s a current contender for my personal favorite of the year. I know, year’s not over yet. Too bad the follow ups were so comparatively underwhelming.
This block has me giving Trion another shot at an Open Beta Tester event, which ran much more smoothly, followed by two instances of unremarkability. Don’t worry, it’s almost over.
What’s in this block? Oh, that… Goody. This was an odd block of games, regardless. What a weird way to close out the year last year.
Well here’s a parade of winners for you. Our first attempt at the Open Beta Tester event, leading to one of Grindstone’s most despised games, followed by an absolutely atrocious cash-in title followed by a butchered yet worshipped otaku paradise. Everything is wonderful.
This block contains my first Raid Leader request on a game I had previous experience with, another requested title that underwent some revisions, and a game so weeby that even the weebs were too weebed out by it to fill my comments section with weeb scorn. (They petered that out on Mabinogi anyway.) Happy birthday to me.
Did I lose anyone off that last one? Let’s try this again with the next block, where I look over a dead game, a dying game forced to swallow it’s own hubris, and a catatonic game. Isn’t the MMO Market so wonderfully stable?!
This block would be wholly unremarkable if it wasn’t for one game… This game pretty much gave me a major boost on both places I posted with a success that I kind of expected, and a backlash I most certainly didn’t. People complain about anything for any reason. There are no winners… in Scarlet Blade. (Also featuring Digimon Masters and Grand Chase, but who really cares? Oh hey, I started my Patreon this block too, didn’t I? I seriously never expected it to get where it is now. I’m still waiting for it to tank, honestly.)
