    totally agree. i have no clue where people's praise for this game is coming from.. i think its just desperation admist a genre that is constantly floundering. people cling to the hope that a new MMO will arrive to cure their boredom.

     

    But seriously.. so far, Neverwinter looks completely amateurish and mediocre, like something a couple college kids cobbled together for a project

    @ElectricWizard - get a couple of college kids, do that and we will give you tons of money.

     

     LoL. So much unwanted hate.

    This is a win win for Cryptic.

    Players pay money to the company so that they can create their own content, lol.

    Pardon my English as it is not my 1st language :)

    Another year, another hype article; do not preorder, wait for those reviews.

    This game looks like rubbish to be honest. I fully expect the Foundry to be a hollow fortress of nothing. There are simply too many checks and balances if character progress and economy is to have any meaning. So there either has to be severe restricitons or no meaningful character progression. The road inbetween is extremely hard to balance.

     

    If it turns out to be a shockingly great game, great stuff! But I'm not holding my breath. Having seen what bit money studios has put out in terms of MMO's the last years I have lost all confidence in any studio delivering a new great MMO.

     

    From earlier demos of this game they showed a very console looking dumbed down combat. And in terms of classes they come up with names like "Control Wizard"? Completely moronic. Being a long time player of Dungeons & Dragons Online, that game actually lets you create your own D&D character in detail and in any combination possible within the normal rules. And it even has an incredibly well made combat system that is very action oriented. I dont see the Neverwinter videos display anything even close to what DDO already has and has had for what...7 years now?

    You read my mind..tempted to do a /thread here but that would be premature, let's wait and see what this forge can do first.

     For a minute I thought I was watching a D&D Online expansion...

    If PWE has their way this will be a F2P game 5 days after launch...

    This looks well I do not want to be unkind but it looks rather underwhelming.

    Same crappy graphics and animations you'll find in CO and STO. In fact this vid looks worse then the one produced for those. It's Cryptic, expect advertising to tout a very mediocre customization in the first lines , then a limited access foundry. This game will be no where near NwN in modding.

    The foundry is limited compared to prior versions of this game.  Besides that you will have to pay to use it after your first few tries.

    Looking forward to playing this. The action oriented combat appears to be fun. However, I fear the revenue model. My understanding with PW games is that players have to spend an average of $40/month in order to be competitive. I guess just wait and see at this point.

    You do know this game is being done by Cryptic don't you?  Their track record is definitely not very good with their previous games.  Could be they have changed their ways and are making a half decent game, but the old saying goes a leopard can't change it's spots.  I think I will take a wait and see what they come up with before getting excited about it.  Far better to not get your hopes up and be surprised than getting them dashed.

    In Holland we have a saying: 'een ezel stoot zich niet twee maal aan de zelfde steen', which translates as: a donkey never hits the same stond twice.

    In case of Cryptic it's maybe never hits the same stone for the 3rd time, but still, I have good hope they will better their ways and make this make really d&d trueworthy.

    After all, there's also the saying: 3 maal is scheepsrecht and since this is the 3 game after their big hit COX.

    I think that the graphics looks similar to D&D Online and that game is very old now.

    Really looking forward to this one. The foundry I believe will be the best part of the game.

    It will be interesting to beta test, glad I bought Torchlight 2 when they offered free entry into Beta! :D

    Where and where?

     

    Meh.  Let me know when a non-instanced Waterdeep, Baldur's Gate, Westgate, Arabel, Mithril Hall, and Calimport are done, to say nothing of the east.  (Neverwinter is assumed, so I don't list it.)

     

    I very much doubt this will be the game I'm looking for, and it had damn well better not be DDO in Forgotten Realms.  I'd trust Turbine with that before Cryptic, and I actually like Cryptic.

    Yes, currently an mmo will never feature custom models and scripting.  By it's very nature it needs to be limited to provide consistency.

    On the other hand NwN 1/2 will never feature anything like this games online component.  The persistent worlds in NWN are nothing like an MMO and are rife with petty politics, control freaks, and cliques that get to decide your gaming access and experience.  Some are nice, most are nice if you're "in".

  • I have been following the game in the periphery for a while as I am an old school dnd guy, but it does not look to good to me.  I'm not completely writing it off, if I do give it a shot its just because of my nostalgia for dungeons and dragons.  I also tried dnd online when it came out and that game sucked, waited for that game for like a year :(

    I'm interested in the game. Ill give it at much, However "perfect World" being connected to it kinda gives me abit of a push. Ill still give it a shot though.... Probubly.

    Because i can.
    I'm Hopeful For Every Game, Until the Fan Boys Attack My Games. Then the Knives Come Out.
    Logic every gamers worst enemy.
