    Don't mix them up folks!

    Both were made by NCsoft people.

     

    They could have at least tried to be creative...

    I've sort of been following this game off and on for a while, now, and I have to say that it looks very interesting to me.  Now that I know the developers are actually attempting to put story to game, unlike so many other previous MMORPGs, I will have to pay a bit more attention.  I've been a role-player for 29 years, dice and paper, baby, and I'm always on the lookout for games that concern themselves with story more than looking pretty.

     

    The only warning I have about this game is this, and it comes in the form of a question: the back story is great, but how much of the fallout from the back story will make it into the game?  This is where the problems come in with most games, great back story, no substance.

         The art and bright colors sure made me think that on first impression also.....

     

    And the most damned copy-clone I've seen so far (and God only knows if we haven't seen enough of them). At least graphically. We don't know anything specific yet and Wildstar could be a wonderful game but all news and screenshots are ringing a "Red Alert" alarm in me.

    Well, you can also check some gameplay here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiOseZt_dDo

    At first glance, it looks like WoW meets SWTOR, with some bits of GW2 thrown in. The devs are trying hard to create a setting and a story, since it's a new IP, of course. As always, we should pay attantion to features that are not announced or emphasized, since that's what usually breaks the game. Good features of the game will always be marketed and hyped, but missing or broken ones will make people quit or hesitate to try the game.

    I quite like the cartoony look of wild star.  I've never really liked the more realistic art style of games, and this seems a step up as far as cartoony graphics goes compared to wow.

    Not hyped at all about this. I guess the reason is, that this game seems to target a younger audience.

    Let's play Fallen Earth (blind, 300 episodes)

    Let's play Guild Wars 2 (blind, 45 episodes)

    REALLY looking forward to this game. Hey, if it is a WOW clone then all the better! We have had too many of the "look at me - I am different" lately. It already announced housing (not in WOW) and Paths (also not in WOW) so it will be a WOW clone just as all the other AAA titles released in the last year. LOL. I see Carbine taking a page from Blizzard. Take the best from all the other games and polish it. That is what I am hoping for.

    Plus, I just have to have a toon that looks like Sarge!

    If that picture is anything to go by race at least aren't gender locked.

    Nature without Technology is little more than animals running about.
    Nature without Magic is without wonder or miracle.
    .........
    Magic without Technology is fantasy.
    Magic without Nature is formless and useless.

    Technology without Nature is application without understanding.
    Technology without Magic is repetitious and uninventive.

    NCSoft.....I don't trust 'em.   Let the game make less than they think it should, or be messed up by their intereferance, or  them needing a quick write off on the books, and they might just kill it.  

     

    I certainly intend to never give NCSoft any money again.  Regardless of game quality, you just can't trust them.

    If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.

    @ Arglebargle

    I hope they are not expecting big sub numbers for the game, and as such I think it should go guild wars 2 route with cash shops and all.. If it goes sub and charge $15 a month, it will be in trouble after maybe month 3 because once again most will agree that it isn't worth $15 a month..

    One of the problem with the mmo market is that its becoming too crowed for games to stay afloat, but nice for gamers because no sub and more choice..
