    Destiny - Showing you just how fucking horrible aiming with a console controller really is (was actually hard to watch and cringe worthy, aimassist FTW). Otherwise the game looks vaguely interesting, and a little late to the post apocalyptic shooter genre.

    If it ever comes to the PC, I'll wait till it goes on sale.

     

     

    Now this on the other hand has peaked my interest...

    "Greetings from The Humungus! The Lord Humungus! The Warrior of the Wasteland! The Ayatollah of Rock'n Rolla!"

     

     

    Well, maybe not quite. But I know I have to make an appearance in there at some point.

    "I understand that if I hear any more words come pouring out of your **** mouth, Ill have to eat every fucking chicken in this room."

    Maybe I'll finally be able to get into an EQ game and find my first real sandbox love at the same time, now let's just hope they've learned something about graphics and combat since EQ2.

    I'm glad they're making a new 40K MMO, not so sure about the Funcom devs, but we'll see.  At least it will be detailed.

    REALLY unsure about AA being a rising anything, it looks so different from what I expected early on, and by that I mean it doesn't look different from what's already been done.  Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised, but so far from the looks of it, I'm disappointed.  Also, they need to show combat.  If it's like it was in an older video, forget it.  I'll just go back to GW2.

    Truly, best of hype.

    I've been liking the look of Archeage for a while but the comment about the sieges was worrying.  So someone with the most real money can afford to continually bid for their own siege and therefore continuously get stronger?  Or simultaneously bid the most for other sieges and therefore potentially capture the most land.  I hope this isn't how the mechanics will work or the theme of owning your own property may be a big bust - and that might be the only thing setting this game apart from the myriad of current games available....

    Still, I cannot wait untill August to see what SOE has planned for us. I think there are many people expecting different things, so my guess is many people will be excited about the game but there will also be many that will be dissapointed.

     

    Only time will tell, lets hope for the best as the MMORPG genre is in need of a big change.

     

    Apparently, what I've been told by other forum members here, the award can go to any game the writer of the article sees. So if someone showed Bill some screen shots of a new Leisure Suit Larry game on their iPhone, Bill could award that game the Best of the Show, even tho nobody but him saw the game and who gives a crap about the other developers who worked for weeks/months prepping for the E3 conference to promote their games.

    Let it go dude, let it go.   We got it.  You don't think a game that didn't officially "present" itself should be best of show.  Duly noted.

    Next time you want to make the same complaint 10 times in a single thread, can you go ahead and make some of those complaints funny?

    Maybe instead of giving EQN best of show they should give SMedley best salesman and BSer of show......

    'When Sony pulls back the curtain later this summer, you will not be disappointed. EverQuest Next is this year's E3 Best of Show, and in just a couple months you'll all understand why. We promise."

     

    That right there is a pretty bold statement.  A sandbox and you will not be disappointed.  We promise.  Bill ..............

    Do you people even read?  They aren't just making Everquest Next best of show for the hell of it or based on the already existing hype, they got to see stuff from the game and from the August reveal.

    Bill, I believe you just gave a new meaning to 'sandbox'.

  • Laughing-manLaughing-man Dublin, OHPosts: 3,415Member Uncommon

    Really disgusting a game that wasn't even in the show won best of show.

    Sorry MMORPG.com Staff, you guys really blew it on this one.

  • MimzelMimzel KristiansandPosts: 375Member

    Yes these are MMORPG.COM's awards. They give them to whomever they want. However, if they want to be taken seriously, they need to follow certain norms and values that the public come to expect from serious sites.

    Giving BEST OF SHOW to a game that wasnt in the show is a joke. Plain and simple. If Bill wants to contribute to hyping a game that much (because he knows he is), he could have given it a HONORARY MENTION or something like that. What he is saying is that a game that wasnt present at E3 bested all the games that actually was there. If that isnt a load of bullcrap hype overdrive, I dont know what is.

    Seriously, that is a bunch of hogwash.  Bill was at the show, some of the games he is not permitted to talk about, like SOE's EQNext.  Does not mean the game was not shown, just that those that saw the game are not allowed to talk about it at present.  He is providing us with his opinion.  It is your right to disagree with him, but since you were not one of those selected to view it, I think your arguments end up rather weak.

    So please tell me how this effects the site from being taken seriously.  Looking at what was released to the public at E3, many of us were quite unimpressed.  Several of the more popular games were console only, which is an immediate -5 in my book.

    So I am glad that Bill saw enough of EQNext to relay how impressed he was with it by giving it Best of Show.  Thank you Bill.

    For all you whiners out there ignoring the obvious, EQNext was shown at the show, just that you have to wait until SOE's show to get reviews of it.

    Exactly.  I'm not even going to comment on the carefully scripted, highly positive interviews he's had with Dave Georgeson in the last 3 years.  Yes Bill, you've said you are friends with the SOE guys.  However, didn't you write, not too long ago, an article how MMORPG.com was going to be less biased, more criticial, and less on the hype-train than in the past?  Why does Dave get a Get Out Of Jail Free card in how you present his interviews and products?

     

    See, SOE promised exclusivity to reveal the EQN content to the devoted EQ fans on Aug. 2nd for SOE Live.  If you read some of the comments from them, they're not exactly thrilled that promise was broken.  Granted, Bill has taken an Oath of Silence on what he saw, but it still leaves a bitter taste in some people's mouths.

     

    I'm going to highlight something from Bill's quote that I find interesting:

     

    "Say what? You thought this one wasn’t at E3? Well, really... it wasn’t in any official capacity. But we were treated to an early look at what SOE has planned for the game’s unveiling in August and we were quite simply blown away by every little detail we saw. This is going to sound like a cop-out, but we can't say why we are choosing EQN as our Best of Show because we've been sworn to secrecy until the big debut in August. What we can say is that we saw grand plans for the world's largest sandbox and it was more than enough to stand head and shoulders above any game we saw at E3. When Sony pulls back the curtain later this summer, you will not be disappointed. EverQuest Next is this year's E3 Best of Show, and in just a couple months you'll all understand why. We promise."

     

    Grand plans.  So, there was a lot of stuff on paper, words exchanged how amazing it will be, and a couple of screen shots?  Grands plans is a future tense of things that are coming.  Which brings me to my final point:

     

    EQN won MMORPG's Best of Show because of a behind-the-curtain reveal of what EQN will be.  How can so much merit be given to a product if you only got to see the plans for it?  Even if you saw a little bit more, other companies, like Square Enix did a multi-thousand dollar display for Final Fantasy: ARR.  How can EQN get Best of Show when there wasn't a display, when 2 people got to see..plans.. and the general public was denied anything at all?  The whole thing is a farce.

     

    Maybe EQN will be all that and a bag of chips.  I hope it will.  But, what we have here is just another cheesy, biased Hype inflation with the same, tired old message, "Its sooooo cool, but we can't talk about it!  (giggle) ".

     

    I really have to shake my head at how Best of Show was awarded here.

     We'll see how the games fare upon and after launch. Nice vids. Thanks for sharing.

    To all the others that are disgruntled, butt-hurt, indignant, superfluous in negative comments, condescending, and even blatantly ignorant because game 'x' is where it shouldn't be or should be but isn't....go make your own website. Fill with all of your opinions, graphs and links for predicting the success and failure of game x-y-z and vent out all of that hot air.

    Grow up, seriously.

    "EQN won MMORPG's Best of Show because of a behind-the-curtain reveal of what EQN will be.  How can so much merit be given to a product if you only got to see the plans for it?  Even if you saw a little bit more, other companies, like Square Enix did a multi-thousand dollar display for Final Fantasy: ARR.  How can EQN get Best of Show when there wasn't a display, when 2 people got to see..plans.. and the general public was denied anything at all?  The whole thing is a farce."

    Again, how is it a farce?  If you took some time to read various sites where people got invited to the private viewing, the reaction was pretty much the same.  I am no SOE fan by any means, but all you have to do is look at the show and what was shown to the public to be very unimpressed.  It would not take much for SOE to trump them.  Just because you are jealous you were not one of those selected to see the preview is no reason to jump on someone who did.  

    If you are going to make an argument, you should make some effort to support it, all I see is a lot of complaining that it was not shown to the public.

    "While we are sworn to secrecy on exactly what we were shown, what we can say is that EverQuest Next was hands-down the best game we had the pleasure of seeing during E3 2013. Franchise fans and MMO gamers across the globe will be able to learn exactly why that’s the case on August 2nd during SOE Live when EQNext is given its grand unveiling.


    Trust us when we say that you’ll want to mark that date on your calendar, and be prepared to bask in the warm glow of EverQuest Next in all its glory. In the meantime, kudos to the folks over at SOE for winning our Best of Show award; we’re as excited as you are to witness the impact EverQuest Next is surely going to have on gamers this August!"

    Jesus.  Just when you think "games journalism" can't sink any lower, we get...this.  If a real journalist pulled this shit they'd never be taken seriously again.  Ever.  Anyone remember when EQ2 was supposed to be the new hotness???  Yeah.  How'd that turn out? 

    And if soe did pay off Bill Murphy I don't think they would have given him much.  Probably not cash.   Something more along the lines of this:
