I'm trying to keep my laid back attitude on games intact. Maybe I'm having a bad night, maybe I was wrong and everything does have a slightly serious indication, but I find myself incredibly irritated at the DF community.
Being someone who spent money and played DarkFall, I was extremely disappointed. So were you, let's not kid ourselves, it was a joke. Darkfall 2.0 being touted constantly with nothing too tangible as an example, I left. Let's not forget it started as Darkfall 2010, lads. Now they're finally releasing it under the new name Unholy Wars and my lord it seems people cannot learn. I hate being a naysayer, it sucks. I can't predict success or failure, that is not within my rights as a human being, it's not my position. That doesn't mean, however, I can't use logic.
Logically, this probably won't be that great. Come on, we're seeing the exact same team doing the exact same procedure, shouldn't we expect the exactly same results? You can make it look better, you can make a ton of changes on paper, you can show us one single video that is approx a 40 seconds of gameplay footage - but CAN you fool us with this? The answer seems to be an unwavering "YES!".
I say "No". I think what makes me take this more seriously than I usually take games is that it's kind of insulting. Not only that, I'm seeing people blindly go along with it, again! Even those excited, I think you have the same gut feelings I do, that this is simply a prettier reskin of broken fundamentals.
If it succeeds, freakin' awesome, you better believe I'll be with you guys playing. If it tanks, well, this is a great year for PC gamers. Guild Wars 2, Planetside 2, a new expansion for Rift, DayZ standalone, Overgrowth, Xenonauts Beta, Far Cry 3, Mists of Pandaria, Decent changes to Dwarf Fortress, Hawken, Planetary Annihilation, Arma 3 and make sure to check out the Occulus Rift.. So, I'm going to bring myself back to a calm level and I suggest you all do too, think about it rationally. Life moves on, either way.
