    to be honest i have'nt heard of any of those games except neverwinter and that was a few days ago when you had a interview with the guys playing it. they all look like a ton of fun but im still looking forward to guild wars 2! cant wait for that game.

    Gotta say, Neverwinter looked fun. However GW2 will be my game for the foreseeable future.

    Smite looks interesting.   I'm one of those people who plays a MOBA for half an hour and isn't pulled in due to the map management and top down viewpoint.  So, this new viewpoint in Smite might just be what hooks me on a MOBA that I want to keep playing.  Guess we'll find out.

    I have been following Neverwinter for a while and its looking good.

    Blooper reel!

    Try to be excellent to everyone you meet. You never know what someone else has seen or endured.

    "I watched my dad play D&D".

    Thanks for making me feel old Pokket. Yep we old timers love our tabletop RPGs.

    Neverwinter can only be an improvement over the tragically misguided DDO. My only misgiving is that it's using the Cryptic engine, aka the loading screen engine.

    I don't like the  artistic direction of Smite it  has a retro cartoony feel to it.

    Neverwinter is free to play? Nice.

    Is it definitely the same engine?  From those vids it looks nothing like STO or CO, by any stretch.  If it is, holy crap they overhauled it like crazy.

    Really if Pokket could lower her vocal range by half an octave the Game Face shorts would be greatly improved for my ears. Slower, deeper tones would work well.

    We need more games like savage 1/2 so I welcome developers trying strategy/fps mmos.

    Talking about game 2:30

    I don't think its a con that the raid size is 5 in Neverwinter.


    I don't want to get too hyped about that game for obvious reasons, but all this coverage does peek my interest.


    Obviously, my most anticipated game is GW2. Neverwinter is growing on me, but I will continue to bash happily bash Cryptic until they prove their reputation wrong(which I hope they do).

    Neverwinter looks great, of course Guild Wars 2 wasn't there but I must say Guild Wars 2 will be my life for a while....long...long time.

  • purewitzpurewitz Casselberry, FLPosts: 487Member Uncommon

    Firefall, Neverwinter, GW2, and now Smite are all on my free to play radar. 

    When we get back from where we are going, we will return to where we were. I know people there!

    looking forward to Neverwinter.

    This sword here at my side dont act the way it should
    Keeps calling me its master, but I feel like its slave
    Hauling me faster and faster to an early, early grave
    And it howls! it howls like hell!

    Been following NW for a while now, I'm glad they finally decided to make it an MMO again.

    TSW, NW, GW2... in that order.
