After reading it however, it seems to me that a few tough core particulars are really given other than it is visually stunning. Well whoop-dee-dooo! If that is true, those buy RuneScape gold running the show at Jagex have undoubtedly whiffed at yet another pitch for still another strike. We've seen visually striking or even stunning before... over a few years ago... but with content that's not really entertaining, WHAT'S THE POINT?!?
The post made me think of the past when Dungeoneering came out. Was it fresh? Yup. Was it exciting? Just a small bit. Can it be cool? Everything depended on who you're talking to at any given time however many people weren't impressed with it at all after a brief time when the reality of the art sunk in. Level 120? Dungeoneering itself? It was to be only a pain in the ass way of getting a few new items and oh yes, it took a great deal of hours to get it done!
What it actually amounted to when I looked at it, played with it and saw exactly what was entailed... was that skill was nothing greater than a"skill" put into place so as to give all the obsessive/compulsives something to do after they'd completed everything else to perform under the RS sun. Can you say... level 120 anybody?!? The fear at the time was that level 120 was going to become the new standard for all abilities but for those people who were sane and exercised common sense logic, we saw nothing more than the empty shell with a great paint job.
Let's face it... dumb clicking to level some abilities to 99 was bad enough but if you wanted it all then that's what you did. Besides getting some items to show off such as capes and the like... titles... yada-yada-yada... being on the top page of the hi-scores dining table... or on the respective skills tables meant you're"the top" and ought to be worshipped. Or at least be highly thought of. Adults knew it was just hours of your actual life invested in a match clicking away ad nauseam. Anyone recall Zezima worship? I saw him at a bank ONE SINGLE OSRS gold TIME back around 2006 and it was pathetic! OMG times three!! Get a life nooblets!
