Its safe to say that DUST 514 was not the huge success CCP wanted it to be and I think a portion of that has to do with the title being a Playstation 3 exclusive release. I’m sure there were reasons (inexperience with server scaling/instancing to a large number of concurrent players, etc) but at the end of the day it put a hard cap on the number of dedicated players willing to invest long term in a crowded FPS marketplace, especially considering that the players most likely to make a long term investment were long term EVE players like me who are primarily PC owners and not necessarily PS3 owners. My disappointment that DUST never made it to PC was significant as I enjoy occasional casual FPS gameplay as in Call of Duty and Overwatch.

I also had interest in trying EVE Valkyrie which was a PC title but required a VR headset which I could not afford at this time. But recently when it was announced that in the Warzone expansion coming Sep 26th that people could play the game without a VR headset.

This is welcome news and shows that CCP has learned something from DUST’s failure to catch on: lowering the barrier to entry will give more people a chance to try your product. I, for one, plan to try the game out and see if my old man reflexes are good enough to do something in the game to make playing it worthwhile.

Now, if only we could get some news on Project Nova …

  6. I believe that avoiding refined foods could be the first step in order to lose weight. They could taste great, but refined foods contain very little nutritional value, making you feed on more in order to have enough power to get through the day. When you are constantly feeding on these foods, transferring to grain and other complex carbohydrates will let you have more vigor while eating less. Good blog post.

  7. I have mastered some considerations through your blog post post. One other stuff I would like to say is that there are many games that you can buy which are designed specifically for toddler age kids. They include things like pattern acknowledgement, colors, animals, and styles. These commonly focus on familiarization instead of memorization. This helps to keep children and kids occupied without feeling like they are learning. Thanks

  16. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
