    I truly see nothing wrong with this, SWTOR and the secret world yes being fairly boring MMO's. Did nothing wrong with the voiced over quests. It brings more immersion into the game, plus it's good for people who have issues reading, I played both SWTOR and TSW to end game and enjoyed both, and i feel so it was due to the added benefit of vocalized quests. Having grew up on EQ1 and have played almost every single MMO out here, i enjoy the idea of expanding into new ideas.

    It's not the VO that's bothersome, it's the neverending cutscenes.  I'm more concerned about the half-life of instanced/phased all to hell "megaserver" and single zone pvp.

    If that's what they want to do, so be it. 

     

    They may very well have their priorities in order, and this is one of them.  If that's the case, it may work out fine. 

     

    Swtor did NOT have their priorities in order.  The game was far more lackluster than it should have been, and even then they could have put voice overs into the game.  In my opinion it wasn't the voice overs they did in Swtor that hurt it.  That's fine.  You can do that.  As long as the rest of the game shines. 

     

    If the Elder Scrolls mmo devs know what they're doing, they can get away with this easily.  Do they know what they're doing?  Heck I have no idea.

    That's the ONE thing in swtor I liked about it lol.

    Full voice overs are not a problem.

     

    Spending absurd amounts of money, the lions share of your budget, on actors for voice overs is a problem. I love reading a good book as the next bibliophile but games have changed. The audience of modern games is one that appreciates the ease, and feels more immersion, from voice overs.

    This was already stated in an inteverview a long time ago.  I'm not sure what you're trying to get at?  Every company has seen what happened to SWTOR and they won't be repeating their mistakes.

    The problem is not too many voiceovers (unless you can't turn them off); the problem is too little of something else that, unlike voiceovers, actually matters.
  • VannorVannor YorkshirePosts: 2,969Member Uncommon

    Good news to me. As long as 75% of the budget isn't on voiceovers and other areas of development arn't lacking because of them then it's a nice bonus. Just because one MMO has full voiceovers and most don't like that game doesn't mean this one will be the same.

    TBH, I wasn't bothered about TESO much at all.. but now I'm going to have my eye on it. Hardly any of us bother to read quest text anymore, it's a lot of effort. Full voice brings the meaning of quests to us passively. Immersion. TSWs voiceovered stories made even the most repetitive quests have some serious context.

    No way I can ever play any MMO without voice over... :) TESO might be my alternate MMO it seems.

    Your misuse of the word 'literally', makes me figuratively insane...

     

    Voice overs aren't bad...  Doesn't mean the game will be bad.  That's like saying, "Man, I really didn't like Diablo 3.  WHAT?!?! Path of exile has random loot too?  It WILL SUCK!"

    Of couse, I took the troll-bait too.  Mostly because you suck at word comprehension, though.

  • archeagekingarcheageking new york, NYPosts: 88Member

    anyway i just saw it on the headline today, i woudl buy eso but now with voice overs i dont think i will now. 

    only because i got burned by swtor, it will not be a day 1 purchase for me. Had i never knew they were going to put full voice overs in the game i would probably buy it the day its released, but this news im not so sure now, big chance its not a day 1 purchase fo me. i will sit on the side line and see how it goes.

    Considering the recent Elder Scrolls games were voiced, it would a step backwards if they DIDN'T make this game voiced over.

    Or are we all just looking at this as a completely sepereate enitiy from the Elder Scrolls Universe?

    There are two kinds of people in this world. People who pick their nose.. and liars.

  • IsawaIsawa Middle 0 Nowhere, ORPosts: 1,051Member
    Skyrim and the other Elder Scroll games have been largley voiced over. So why draw from swtor when you have better games to draw from?

    I'm the opposite.. Full voice overs are a massive waste of hard drive space and the games budget.  Swtor could have been so much better if they put that money towards actual gameplay.

     

    Edit: And to the OP.. I hope you are ok after being "literally" shocked..

    *shrug*

    VO's mean nothing to me. The only thing that will determine if I play TESO will be the combat, and RvR system.

  • HeafstaggHeafstagg Edmonton, ABPosts: 170Member Uncommon
    I'd rather they spend all that money that they had spent on VO's to be put towards adding systems like housing or mini-games or such. Or put that extra man-power into improving PvP or PvE whichever one may be lacking. I don't mind VO's for the main story line or whatever, but VO's for side quests is a waste of time. I can read much faster than they can speak. I'd much rather read the side quests any day.

    It's sad that you think voice acting makes you get up in arms about ESO, that's all I have to say. 

     

    (And yes, it's called ESO not TESO, because that's how Zenimax labels the game on their advertisements.)

    This is the usual problem with full voice acting. They spend so much time and money on them, that other parts of the game suffer horribly. A mix of voice acting and text is a great system, going full blown VA for everything is overkill and I feel a huge waste of time. Make the game fun to play and enjoyable, great VA isn't going to fill that hole.

    Except the fact that that is a misconception. A game project is split up into different departments. No one department works on every part of the game.

    Voice Acting =/= bad game. I mean heck, voice acting has existed in some light form in MMOs for a while. 

     

    Its silly to expect since one game that did it and wasn't exceptionally good that another will and it will be bad as well.

    It still uses a huge chunk of the games budget..

    How is it a misconception? Yes they may have different departments working on each thing, but if you CUT OUT the VO department, amazingly enough, you now have money to spend on the other departments. Perhaps you don't agree with my opinion but it was far from a misconception. Perhaps you meant to use more proper wording or you misspoke.

    You should quit licking the computer while using it if you were shocked.

    SWTOR at least had a background story... ESO is gonna just be a crapshoop story from storymakers not even affiliated with Elder Scrolls.  <flex> yep.

     

    Oh whats that?  ESO has a team of storytellers???  Oh do tell do tell !!! oh .. no affiliation to ES? oh ...
