    Sooooo much better than previous trailers.

    Those animations still look stiffer than a teenage boy at the playboy mansion, tho...

    Ugh, that's pretty boring and corny. Hopefully, gameplay will be better.

    Looking forward to all the NWN Lore in the game...

    I didn't like this trailer at all.  The last trailer and the last game convention footage were better than this by a long shot.  Hope the game isn't going backwards in development.   Cryptic, yeah I know it's perfect world now, but same devs from Cryptic, tend to make fun games in beta and then somewhere along the line at launch or near it drop the ball.  This happened in CO and STO, I was having a blast playing them in beta and then launch day patches changed the feel of the game so much, they became boring and unfun to play.  Hope they don't do the same with this one.

    They should just post gameplay footage. That was way more interesting and enjoyable to see than this trailer, one word: underwhelming.

    II gave up on this game when they said their most 'hardcore' content was really long single group runs. ugh.

    I thought NWN2 was pretty cool but I never really found a server I liked to play on.  This game... Well...  Looks like it may have been good if it were released 6-8 years ago.

    That's because Cryptic's idea of balanced game play ends up being boring, uninspired and frankly, not fun.  They end up being their own worst enemy once they start wielding the nerf hammer and spouting headstrong  and tone deaf nonsense about the "health of the game".

    I can't believe there is anyone exited about this game.

    It's F2P

    Lobby based

    developed by Cryptic

     

    what else do you need?

    Instead of raping another IP, NWN should stay as a single player RPG with player made mods & content, with optional online & co-op.

    Since it is PW you will have to be a confidant of the item shop to play this game, despite silly protestations that you can play it for free.  No PW game is ever free.

    F2P no longer means its automatically a bad game...figuring people are RAVING for GW2 (sure you buy the box, but there is no sub and there is still micro transactions) Planetside 2 is also F2P

    Lobby based

    Where are you gettting your information?  Hands-on out of E3 state the opposite.

    developed by Cryptic

     Yes they have made huge mistakes, but regardless of what all the "im so different I;m going to follow everyone else" hipster crowd says, STO have come a long way from release.  It is far superior in fun then P2P games like SWTOR.

    NWN was for the most part NOT as amazing as everyone wants to make it out to be.  Aside from Biowares story telling, the games are generally boring as hell to play.  User content helped alot, but in case you have not noticed, that is the main selling point of Neverwinter.

    The Foundry in STO is the single most under-appreciated yet important advance in modern MMO gaming, hands down.  Even as a mainly "test" version that is in STO (The Neverwinter version is supposed to be more refined) it is a powerful way for talented people to tell a good story.

    To be honest I have been following this game sense it was announced in 09 and can't wait to get my hands on it as the poster above said the Foundry in STO is amazing as it is and with it being in NWN's that will be cool and if some of the people from STO come over and make stuff here be in for a big flood of content that will last.

    To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

    Wow, poor Neverwinter...this franchise has done nothing but diminish since BioWare and the first version....now BioWRe are a joke and the newest Neverwinter just looks cheap and cheesy....what the hell happened to the universe!?

    have to agree there about the animations, it doesn't look as smooth for the other classes as it did in the con showing how the thief gameplay looked. maybe some glitch hopefully.

    Is it just me, or did they recycle the CO animations? Hm. Can't make up my mind about this. Looks a bit outdated tbh. Well, if lore and setting are good...

    This.

    Foundry rocks, and if the former NWN community starts adding user-generated content, Nevetwinter could be an awesome game. (although I ithink it will be good by default, sorry but I trust in Cryptic :) I like their games)
