Hellgate London For Mobile released
« on: Feb 24, 2016; 08:17 AM »
I havent seen anything about this. I tried it and i personally don't like it. Seems they closed the US servers to start a mobile version to squeeze more money put this dead horse.

Most gaming companies are going towards the smartphones and VR devices.  That is why Windows 10 is the end of the road for MicroShaft's OSs.

 Alright after playing it using an emulator, it runs bad due to my specs , the game is interesting but honestly i have no idea what these devs are thinking but they clearly isn't using their brain very well. I seen this happen before though, get rid of a game which everyone love and wanted to play and instead make a crappy mobile version with insane prices. in the shop they have stuff for 84 dollars on sale ROFL. Who in their right mind will spend 84 bucks on a few guns.

sigh. I don't seen this ending well, but they said they have some ideas on other stuff, interesting to see how everything goes.

I, for one, won't be playing the mobile version of Hellgate London.  Since the actual game went down years back, it's like eh.

Can't play it just yet,as it's "incompatible with all of [my] devices".Hoping it's actually an issue more related to its beta-ish status than my devices.

Either way,I read it's an FPS on rails.So it's most surely not Hellgate.
If I had to single out the most innovative aspect of Hellgate,it would be the fusion of RPG,hack&slash and FPS features.So Hanbit discarding this nature of it and turning the game into a pure FPS (on rails no less) doesn't quite agree with me.

Well,I maintain some hope that the "other versions" they mention here and there will be more true to the original.I'm not sure I like their persistance on the IP,but I do have to admire it,so to speak.

judging by the low number of likes for their new page and bad reviews for that game , if they had any sense they would just give us what we want lol.

I can't really disagree.

For what it is worth... I have seen the game die twice now. The first time did we stand around Stonehenge in the middle of the night until they actually had pulled the plug and all we got was a final error message. Now it is gone for the second time, and I do not even miss it any more. I went on and gave Path of Exile (PoE) a try, and it is good. It is in some parts almost a direct copy of Diablo II. The developers are young and they used crowd sourcing to start it, and their cash shop (needed to keep the servers running) does not sell any pay2win items. Only convenience and vanity stuff is for sale. The setup and the story of the game are completely different to HGG, but the game mechanics are deep. The skill tree itself is mind blowing. You do get to kill zombies right as the first thing when you start into the game... it has got that in common!  :P It has got weekly events, continuous development and fixes - not that it needs much fixing. It runs rock solid and fast. I haven't had a single crash since I started playing it. In short, this is what an actively developed game should look like and I guess the young devs know that, too. It did not just happen to be sort of a modern Diablo II clone by accident.

What I am really trying to say is, forget HGG and find yourself a new game. A better one with a development team that needs you as a player. Do not run after companies who continuously dump their player bases, because they only see them as cash cows and otherwise posses no ambitions in updating and keeping a game alive for the sake of the game. Such companies, those that work only into their own pockets, just do not deserve any players. I will not do that again. I have seen what I gotten from it and I am glad I went on to play PoE.

I tend to agree - I've also played POE (and bought a couple of supporter packs over the years) and it is good (and addictive).

However HGG has some stuff that POE doesn't.

The major one - it  (HGG) being set in a post-apocalypse London that, frankly, looks so much better than the real London of today (not a fan) :D.  Where-as POE is more fantasy where big guns, cars and Tube trains have not yet been invented yet.

Guns! POE dosn't have guns. I've tried bows, and they pretty much sucked.

The trade system - POE's trade system is pretty crap unless you use third party tools. Even then its very hit-and-miss.  There are improvements coming, I know, but I shall reserve judgement until they appear.  Back in the day, the online version of HGL had a decent search & buy system, where you can mail items to each other. Very well done.  POE won't  do anything related to an auction house - so lets see what they come up with.

Small, and possibly stupid differences - but for me, it's what set HGG from all the other ARPG's out there at the time.

Grim Dawn on the other hand - that seems quite good. I've only just started playing it and it's really well done.
