    Think people are a bit overreacting, it didn't look that bad. It didn't show much at all.

    I was more disappointed about the person making this video, give him any game and you wouldn't get much out of it.

    So?

    It is typical for gamers to adopt a sense of ownership for the games that they play.

    Note: "typical", not "rational".

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

I blew so many hours into skyrim, and now they are going to release this crap.

     

    Im fuming. 

    Really, another one of these.  Got any specifics to share bud because most us could care less what you want to do with your keyboard or that you are pissed, but I'm totally thinking that Zenimax will call you and totally redesign the game to fit your expectations, of which you provide no insight here, because you are REALLY REALLY pissed off. 

     

    Pretty much summed up what I was thinking.  If I was betting, I would bet the OP is 14 years old or younger.  If not, then just really stupid.

    Game will be released this year, what you see in beta is most of what you'll see at launch. Can't use this excuse all the time.

    ^ SWTOR for example...

    I've never been one to think that so long as a specific title was attached to a series it was going to be good. Take every game as a single game. Just because its a elder scrolls game doesnt mean it will be good. There are specific characteristis that will be attached to the game however Good or Bad will not be one of them.

    Because i can.

    People said that a lot in SWTOR beta, it released with a lot of the problems people were complaining about in beta.

    Yep - if you are that worried then you should see the leaked footage from PAX where settings were turned up - looked 10x better and frigging great.  Dude probably turned all his settings down as much as possible to try and flame the game.

     

    The video from PAX has me laughing at this this supposedly horrible video trying to make it look bad.

Judging eso on this video would be like getting a cam quality movie and judging it only on its opening credits.

    It's like watching a hand-cam video of the first five minutes of a movie and then complaining that the producer lied because the footage you saw wasn't at all HD quality.

    Here's how reviews should be done from now on.

     

    1) Double click on World of Warcraft desktop Icon

    2) Click Play

    3) Watch opening Cinematic

    4) Once login screen is there hit quit

    5) Write review describing the awesome graphics that WoW has, but there isn't really much to do except hit buttons that take you to your account, watch cinematics or quit the game.

     

    Best review EVAR :)

    too late, just watched the video and its the same old beaten formula killtenrats fetch me some bear , the character seems to float around, its all static and lifeless, it rewards the player for every single thing, like walk 3 steps win 10xp, well nothing we didnt know before, its ... bad, bland and boring, its a kick in the nuts of the tes fans.

    I'm still confused about what i was supposed to see in that short video, good or bad.

  • GravargGravarg Harker Heights, TXPosts: 3,332Member Uncommon

    That's acutally not a bad thing imho.  getting 10 xp every 3 steps.  I love to explore, why not get xp while doing it :D  A couple days ago in Defiance a GM teleported me off a roof that I jumped my challenger up onto to snipe enemies from.  They couldn't reach me, and it was an "unintended area of play" rofl :)

     

    I was like, I'm always in "unintended areas of play" :)

    This is why the content shouldn't of been 'leaked' because of reactions like this among the Elder Scrolls fan community. I can only say that if you are dubious about the game from the early content you have seen, then wait until a review of it to come out to see if its a game for you. 

    The trouble with it is that the franchise has  massive community which is strengthened by the modding side of things. Its why people keep playing the games because the sheer amount of mods and personal tweaks and touches that contribute to enhancing the game. 

    The MMO will not give you a 'foundry' based system, it will have to succeed on its own merits and the fans will need to trust the developer to make the game in synch with the experience of prior Elder Scrolls games. If they do not, and they keep the classic tropes from typical MMO gaming then they face backlash on two fronts. One, from MMO gamers who are thinking this is going to offer something differen't. The other is the fans who will fee the spirit of their belove franchise has been jaded  by a cash-in to the MMO market. 

    It's really too early to tell at the moment as it could go either way, but I would say there is a reason why they have NDA's and why early footage being leaked can harm the game.

    Oh please with the NDA nonsense already, it's evident players under an NDA will always release information, companies know this and if they're so worried about leaks then perhaps they should reconsider testing methods. Oh wait they're really not worried about it as it's free advertising........ until people complain then the NDA is in effect. Can't have it both ways.

    That's all not our concern, as long as it's not posted or specific details discussed here before NDA is lifted.

    Maybe you don't alpha/beta test or maybe you just "test" to do dungeon runs before launch, but what you say is not true at all.

    Most games optimize graphics, implement changes, and polish systems up until freeze a couple weeks before launch.  Even then they're still testing the post release patch past that.

    Same here.

    I was expecting something horrible...looks like standard 3rd person TES adapted for an MMO...

    I wish the first person mode worked the same, though.

    Still hoping it's buy-to-play, but prepared for P2P and F2P/B2P in 6-12 months. Seems like a decent game from what I've seen and heard.

    What are you so pissed about?

    All the video showed was some idiot running around killing critters, and dieing to mostly everything else.

    Yet it is now so generic because of said video...
