Is Tom Clancy's The Division a good clear window or a fake mirror of a game?

Update (23/03/16): I have decided to update my thoughts on Tom Clancy’s The Division. This is because I have had a U-turn on the game. Tom Clancy’s The Division has been out for about two weeks now and has had about three major patches that have changed the game a bit in some ways for better and worse. Read on for my updated Scrambled Thoughts on Tom Clancy’s The Division.

My Scrambled Thoughts: The Elder Scrolls Online (PC) [Closed Beta]

I have heard the Elder Scrolls Online is not very good and I am not really expecting much from it seeing as I am basically over MMORPGs at this point. I am a fan of the Elder Scrolls games but from what I have seen they should have just added co-op to Elder Scrolls: Oblivion or Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and more people would probably enjoy it. My overall view of the game is mixed but this is My Scrambled Thoughts on The Elder Scrolls Online.

My Scrambled Thoughts: WildStar (PC) [Closed Beta]

If the whole game only had this race (Chua) then maybe it would be good.

I played the Elder Scrolls Online Beta last week and initially though it would be bad then I tried the game more and realising it was ok but after spending more time with the game I realised the game was pretty average. Now I am playing WildStar and The Elder Scrolls Online seems like it positively modern in comparison. I will go over what I think of the Elder Scrolls Online soon but what do I think of WildStar (Beta)? The following is My Scrambled Thoughts on WildStar.

What I think of SolForge (Beta)

Like the Greek myth this game should be left alone like Pandora's box.
If the Greeks taught anything then this game should be left alone like Pandora’s box.

Riding on the wave of free-to-play is a new Digital Trading Card Game which is also based on a board game and is currently available in beta. They have micro transactions in the game so for all intents and purposes Solforge has been released therefore This is What I Think of SolForge.

Empire: Total War Multiplayer Campaign Beta is Available Once Again for a Limited Time

Rain should give the British men a boost to morale. Sadly it doesn't.

After about four years The Creative Assembly the developers of the Total War franchise have once again released their multiplayer campaign beta for people to try out in Empire: Total War. This is great news as even with Total War: Rome II coming out soon its good that the developers are still remembering their old games and Empire Total War is in my opinion the last great Total War game since the days of Medieval: Total War and Rome: Total War or at least the one I played the most in recent years. I didn’t get much into Total War: Shogun 2 even if it was quite good and mechanically sound.

Valve Corporation have recently introduced another new collectible to their expanding Steam system. It is sort of like the current achievements and badges but instead focuses on some good old fashioned trading card action. Steam Trading Cards is currently in Beta but you can already start earning cards in a select number of games.
