I’m planning to do a review of DarkFall soon (since our 1yr anniversary is coming up and I want to get it something special), but I’m trying to decide the best way to write it. I know for the thousands in attendance, and the MILLIONS reading around the world, we have a mix of people here who do play DarkFall (newbs and vets alike), people who are curious (no homo) about DarkFall, and the last few remaining haters (Hi haters).
I don’t want to do a straight up “this has been added since launch” post, because that would not only require me to comb over previous patch notes, but would also be somewhat dry. I also don’t want to do a ‘pure’ review of everything because I’ve already talked at length about some of the basics (how sounds is important, how the shadows are awesome, what the death penalty is, etc) and I don’t think that would help anyone.
My general plan right now is to touch on some of the more common misconceptions about DF (its all PvP, it’s a gank-fest, everyone in-game is a kewl d00d), highlight what I think are some of it’s standout features among the MMO genre, and maybe go over why DarkFall would be an enjoyable experience for the average MMO fan and not just the perceived “hardcore PvPers only” crowd.
But before I do any of that, I figured I would ask you, dear read, what you might like to see in that DarkFall review?
