    Anyone tried Wildstar?
    Was just going around to see what else was new, and Wildstar was on my radar when it initially launched and wanted to wait till it had time to mature before jumping in.

    So finally took the plunge and was pleasantly surprised.
    Really great art style and combat.

    Anyone else tried it for longer to share their thoughts?


    If you haven't heard of it.

    Dang that sure looks good! I really need a new game since I quit Gw2... I SO am gonna try this next weekend! <3

    Google never ceases to amaze... I quick searched "Wildstar Mechari" and the first result was a thread on their forums titled "do Mechari really need underwear?" my face responsed to what my eyes read as what could only be translated as "...wut?"

    I really wish they turned this into a movie.
    I would definitely watch it considering the art style and comedy.

    But ya the game is one of those hidden gems. It takes a lot of the best traits of most MMO's - adds in comedy and zaniness.
    The only down side is its a tad small world compared to other MMO's - but then again if it gains popularity it will definitely grow.

    So if you love it, spread the love.
    Also right now humble is offering a jump start kit for a $1.

    Unfortunately if the numbers don't improve - it won't be around for long.
    I think its because lack of information is really hurting it, so Hopefully the thread increases some awareness even in a small way.

    After all, a tiny ripple is start of a wave.

    It probably is being hindered by the fact that sci-fi is so often dominated by the cliche media... Star wars and such ugliness are often the first and brightest beacons when one drifts over sheer darkness that conveys the internet, but I think it has hope, I will install it ASAP, and then spread the fire

    If I do remember correctly, it had a lot troubles on launch day which turned off a lot of players before Wildstar turned into a F2P game. I wasn't there from the launch, but I tried it a few months ago and really enjoyed it. I would stayed, but Final Fantasy 14:A Realm Reborn took me in as I hit off with some nice people and joiedn a friendly; yet small, free company (that game's version of the guild system). Been playing it off and on since, but I wouldn't mind giving Wildstar another go.

    Sure more the merrier - I tried FF14 - I hated the fact it was auto targeting. But the graphics were beautiful.

    Yeah, there were a few gripping issues I had with FF14, but I was egged on that the story got better; for which I play most final fantasy games. I found myself shrugging off some of the issues I had with the game as I became more invested into the story. I would have given up on it though I think if I didn't have such an awesome free company. They certainly made both the good and bad experiences better.

    Is there a specific server you play on and/or faction?

    Chances are that I'll need to update it, and with my molasses internet, I should get a coffee with you, and fly back here. Should be done downloading by then.
