I listened to the latest Aggrochat podcast, titled “Games we forgot about”, where this podcast’s crew talk about games that have “dropped off the radar”: a couple resonated with me, notably LOTRO and Warframe. I had a similar discussion on the weekend: I was visiting family and spent a lot of time looking at PS5 games and also some PC titles. One game that came up in conversation was Black Desert Online as my niece is playing it once again – apparently she plays it on PS5, on PC and on mobile as well!
Looking at the list of character classes on offer now, I was really surprised at how many have been added. This game is seriously growing in options, something that is always nice to see – I like new classes to play.
Seeing just the class ability animations for some of these made me tempted to return, especially if I can sync up with her to level duo – I am a lot more motivated to play MMOs if I have someone to play with regularly. A slight issue is that she is playing on PS5 more, and it looks like cross-platform isn’t a thing. I’m only really interested in playing on PC because I have established characters on my PC account and don’t want to abandon progress to start over. As I’ve written before, I just can’t start from scratch without immediately missing older characters.
Nevertheless, I do think I should give Nova or Corsair a try, both classes look really interesting thematically! Are there any MMOs or other games you are thinking of replaying this month?
