    it's not Anime cartoony

    it's 99% WoW cartoony and you don't have to be an art expert to spot that...

    And yet you're comparing WoW to literally 5 examples of things that aren't video games. Heck, if you look at some of the early 3d games based on cartoons, the styles aren't that different. I'm sorry, but WoW didn't monopolize cartoonistic art styles in video games. What WoW did is essentially pull a Halo. They successfully drew in an outside market into the MMO-space, and as a result, that new market now assumes that WoW pioneered everything.

    - As for Wildstar, this game is literally doing a majority of the things people have criticised the last batch of MMOs for lacking. And yet, it's already being labelled a 'WoW-Clone' and being treated as garbage.

    This is why we can't have nice things.

    I'm tired from a long day. There are F'n trolls speaking Jamiacan.  Wtf guys. You guys say you want this and want that, then hype stuff like this. 

     

    Don't really feel like being nice and respectful right now. There is nothing you can twist or say that this ish doesn't look and sound just like WoW. Oh I forgot there's instanced housing... Wtf guys.

    well i was intrested in this until i saw this video maybe ill check in a little more later, i was hopeing more for steam punk VS magic kinda, not space VS kinda aliens

    as for the grapics. . . .to be honest im not found of the cartoony style grapics anymore, and to those who say this dousnt look like WoW you got to be jokeing cause i thought this was a old WoW video at first, im not saying any cartoony looking MMO looks like WoW cause they dont but the grapic style the landscape style the building style adn the way the chars looks and move all scream WoW. if you dont agree then you should stop breath and watch a video of this and a WoW video not of the new expansion.

    F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used toimage
    Proper Grammer & spelling are extra, corrections will be LOL at.

    "we just crunched for  years, we want to do anyhting but warcraft" - wildstar devs.

     

    - creates a world looking 100% like WoW, while the characters look scifi.

    - same battleground and battleground leveling structure.

    - 20 and 40 man raids.

    - 5 man dungeons + instant dungeon finder.

    - heroic 5 mans

    - some tacked on differences at the fringe, while the game is WoW at the core.

    The OP video has been out for a while, although it was just uploaded on the official US WildStar Site I guess. I don't think it is very good either. Anyways, I find this older video to be far better to get a feel for the game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtK-8sUazUs

     

  • RoxtarrRoxtarr Freeland, MI, MIPosts: 1,122Member

    They only put this video up because they were giving background information about the Zone Deradune.

    I hate the fact that they copied WoW too - seamless worlds are teh suck.

    The art style of Wildstar isn't WoW! It's Traditional Animation. People are only saying it looks like WoW because it looks like a graphic novel, comic or cartoon. Since when does WoW get the monopoly on this style?!? It doesn't.

     

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

    You need to look more closer at the character models, friend. Put a pic of a avatar from WoW next to one from Wildstar and you will see a lot of clipping from items and clothing on the WoW avatar and none in Wildstar. 

    Wildstar is what WoW would look like if Blizzard ever got their act together and updated their graphics engine.

    Hmmm.... you mean the part where they were talking about the altar of bones?

    That's probably the closest I've seen this game have to anything even remotely resembling trolls. WildStar does look like WoW, but honestly it's hard to have a polished, cartoony, toon-shader created game that doesn't resemble WoW. WoW literally took every staple from animation and art design and implemented it into their game. The art style reminds me more of a mix between Ratchet & Clank & Allods, though imho.

    Aside from it being cartoony, though, this game honestly seems to be much closer to a GW2 than a WoW. It definitely has more traditional MMO staples, but it's also got a lot of 'next gen' MMO mechanics in it as well.

    Not sure if this game will be my cup of tea, but I'd definitely say it's too early to write this one off.

    It's a Draken, if if it resembles anything in fantasy "look" it would resemble a Tiefling from D n D. They are a tribal, but religious bunch. Not jamacan. They're huge with horns and long tails.

    Sorry this game looks more like a WoW clone then any game ever to hit the market.  It looks absolutely like it was designed for 12 year olds and the animations look horrendous and uninspiring.  I'll defenitly be skipping this train wreck of a game because if they can't even get original on the gfx side whats to think they will get any thing else right.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    I like it.  I don't care if it looks like Wow or is for 12 year olds, I think it looks fun and I like the sense of humor the devs have portrayed over the last couple years regarding the game.  It looks like it's really going to have a fun factor like Wow did and it might not appeal to the majority of mmorpg forum readers but I bet it will appeal to many others.

    I look forward to giving it a whirl.

    No bitchers.

    Graphically, I have to say it bears more than just a passing resemblance to WoW.  But, without seeing the UI, or combat controls, I will reserve judgement.  Depending on the controls and UI, they are either going to share aritistic style with WoW, or come off as WoW in space...

    Watch the 30 minute video on YouTube from game spy I believe - the quest givers even have yellow exclamation marks over their heads.  They aren't doing themselves any favors to avoid the wow clone talk

    I'm going to give this one a pass, but I'm sure there will be some people who enjoy the look and feel of this game. I wish them luck...they are going to need it.

    Uh, I don't think we both watched the same video. . . I'm sick of plastic looking so-called 'realism'. The world just looks alive, and even the character movement has more kick to it than most anything out there these days.

    Still using the eq2 plastic character argument?  Stuck in 2004 eh?  Well I'm sure you won't be the only one who prefers that graphic style but I feel fairly confident you'll be in the minority

    Yep, this is why so many can't have nice things.   They just aren't perfect.

    Oh, they have big swords??!  Everything else is great, but Big Swords!!?  Can't play it....

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

I simply stated a different cartoon-style game that it reminds me of personally. Every game is compared to WoW, it's annoyingly inescapable. I just get tired of the endless zomg WoW-clone!!! thrown at every MMO in extistence post-WoW.

    I also would hardly call 2 sentences "harping" either but nice of you to take the time to reply!

    Surprisingly noone compares EvE to WoW. Ever.

    Not even SWTOR is compared to WoW for art (though it is for absolutely everything else)

    Interesting.

    Call me silly, but if a game looks like WoW, that's a big Pro in my book.

    Because, if anything, WoW still has a lot of "feel" to it.

    Yah but even "feel" gets old after 9-10 years.

    Not to me it doesn't. Well, not in WoW's case anyway.
