    if a game isn't ready it isn't ready. why whould you be priveledged to see something before its ready? do you get to see movie clips(outside trailers) of movies before they're ready? no. you wait until its done then you go see it.

     

    just because gw2 showed off the game in alpha means everyone else should? what kinda logic is that.

    Sure, I might agree with that, but people are already pre-ordering.  I would prefer to know if the game looks halfway decent before I plunk money down on it.  People don't usually pay to see a movie 6 months in advance.  You're right though, it's unfair to compare games before they're out.  Then again, that won't ever stop people from doing it.

    I just looked at Amazon's policy, and they said they don't actually charge you until it ships, and you are free to cancel anytime prior to that.

    details, please.

     

    You know, on why it's safe to watch?

    Yeah, it's called protecting your computer.  It's pretty common, you should look into it.

    Amazing answer.  You say the video's are safe to watch, yet later elude that computer protection should be looked into.

    That's the one.  If nothing else, it's cool to see some hint of the UI.  I like their minimalist approach.

    EDIT: That screaming dude who's probably going to get banned says it's not a video of TESO anyway.  What game is it?

    the screaming dude doesnt knnow what he's talking about.  it's teso.

    Those are pre-purchases for the pre-orders when the pre-orders actually happen.  

     

    If I ever decide to pre-order, I'll be reviewing the list of goodies that I'll get when they post it on the ESO website.

    GW2 is kind of a trashy MMORPG anyways.  Go the other route, and ArcheAge shows their footage freely.

     

    Only SWTOR and ESO need to hide footage :-D  But they hid gameplay for damn good reasons.

    I'd say that it's a reason to be cautious.  Not a reason to write it off as a failure.  Not yet anyways.

    Anyone can make a polished video from alpha.  It just takes a little time!  It's not an accomplishment!  They aren't being more open with you, they are simply using another marketing approach.

     

    I guarantee you that you will see closed beta gameplay footage soon.™

    While I wasn't that impressed with the short, blurry video I saw (obviously), I want to see how melee works before I even begin to write the game off.  I'm not really a ranged player by nature.

Just wait till this shitstorm happens because this is a discrace to the IP. Talk to any of us alpha testers. The game feels "fake".

    He might be lying but I wouldn't be surprised if it's true. The stiff animations, clunky looking movement, the investment of hype, spending probably millions on making a 5 minute cgi trailer just for the beta announcement. Showing pretty much no gameplay besides few second fly throughs of cities/zones. No talk on any sort of innovation. This is a greedy company trying to milk their IP without wanting to take any risks to actually make a good, innovative game.

    Will it be as bad as SWTOR? Probably can't get worse, but I have very low expectations.

    I personally love Star Wars, so I would love if a major IP like ES went from P2P to F2P faster than SWTOR.

     

    ESO is the sole contender currently....but I think it will make a remarkable showing.  It has the hype, the fans .. and it has a game ES fans will hate .. It's SWG Vs SWTOR all over again ..

     

    Of course Star Wars wins, but thats neither here nor there..

    I personally have had enough of thses fed-x super linear multiplayer games pretending to be MMO's, GW2 being the worst of them.

    Hopefully i'll be able to return home by the end of the year and stay home.

    Why no gameplay video ? can't hype the game when we only see Screensshots of the game

    I have to agree, he is trolling for the sake of trolling. I watched them without any problems as well, perhaps if they would of been swtor he would of taken the risk.

    It's the same cellphone PAX videos that have been posted everywhere. Someone playing alpha... you'd think he'd have his own screen cap videos.

    Despite that it still has a huge fanbase, and tons of subs.

     

    PS:  A CGI video doesn't cost millions.  The game designers, who are already being paid, made it, and since its being hosted on their websites then the advertising cost is minimal. 

    SWTOR was one of the biggest failures in the history of the genre, they made WoW and slapped on "story" which mostly consisted of boring filler quests with v/o. They tried to copy wow and couldn't even get that right, it was the most clunky game i've ever played, worse than even the most unheard of low budget f2p games.

    PS: You'd be surprised how much a CGI trailer costs, do you really think they paid under a million to make a trailer of that quality and length? Not to mention all the websites they paid to host the video on.

  • impiroimpiro onbekendPosts: 204Member

    Just watched the vids from the links posted earlier. Seems perfectly safe to watch, no scripts whatsoever (on firefox at least).

    Can anybody explain what I am supposed to be getting from these vids? Some people act very dissapointed, but I can barely see anything in these vids that anybody could give any substantial criticism on. Not a follower of this game though, so thats why I'm asking.

  • mysticjbyrdmysticjbyrd Lebanon, VAPosts: 16Member

    They already have the software.  They already have the video graphics experts.  That video didn't cost anywhere near 1 m, and they pay those website like a nickel a click.

    You can up the quality to HD and it helps some.  I didn't see that at first. 
     

    Anyways, you are 100% correct.  These videos showcase nowhere near enough nor at a late enough time to deduce anything.  Whiners are going to whine.  Thats about all it amounts too really.

     

    This forum seems to be insanely negative though...

    Hard not to be negative when you see the same marketing and design patterns from these devs game after game. So many games have flopped and so many lies have been told that it's something to automatically expect now. This will keep happening until someone makes a game who isn't only in it for the money. That DEFINITELY won't be TESO.
