I wil buy it for my wife because she like these kind of games but i will stick to The Secret World release for now and GW2 after that. 

     

    Thats a fair stance to take.

    If the art style of the game dosen't appeal to you there is no way you will enjoy it.

    I am excited for GW2 as well :)

    Here are some SS I took of my priest Mithril... bear in mind my PC is old these days (was waiting for GW2 to upgrade) and that the game is still in beta here and may well have GFX options turned off while they measure performance.

    I mostly chose these to show the brightly lit environment.

    I wasn't struck too heavily by a lack of shadow TBH.

    Don't mind me...just another European who got screwed out of a sneak peek event because of..

     

    {mod edit}  Frogster not being able to keep their shit together.

    Currently waiting for the MMO industry to put out something good.

    Well, thanks for the input.

    I hope you can make the next one they are holding to replace it.

    (maybe that will wash away some of that anger)

    In regards to combat, TERA does this to you. Thanks to its amazing combat system even mundane tasks like just AOE-grinding at the early levels is fun. I did that a lot during the FGT's and CPE's, I just started AOE-grinding and could never stop myself. So eventually I got behind on my quests a few times.

    There is a test going on now, just started 10 minutes ago and will last for 4 hours.

    Razephon, tone it down a bit please :-s
    The real sneak peek has yet to happen.

    By how aggressive they're being trying to make sure the new hardware is a-ok I'm expecting the sneak peek this weekend.

    The Americans will only benefit from this as stuff is being tested on our end ensuring an experience as smooth as possible.

    Played about 30 minutes and loved it but got to head to work now.  Very nice game!

    They were sure battering the sytem today, you could tell the performance was way down from yesterday.

    It's all good though, that was exactly the point I guess.

    Pretty much agree :)

    If we are gonna have these types of quest in these games changing up the combat mechanic is a far better way to make them interesting then sticking in a cut cene before every one IMO.

    Having fun killing stuff right now.

    Hello Lorgarn,  long time no see. 

     

    ~Like your new sig btw

    Velika: City of Wheels: Among the mortal races, the humans were the only one that never built cities or great empires; a curse laid upon them by their creator, Gidd, forced them to wander as nomads for twenty centuries...

    It's a fun game, which I can only see getting better as it matures.

    I enjoyed the newbie area more then I did SWTOR's and it seems a more satisfying use of the basic WoW themepark template.

    Maybe it is all down the shaking up the combat system. It makes a huge difference.

    Yes it is a very fun game. Finally got some play time in myself on yesterday and loved it.
