    Looks nice? We know nothing about it.. We've only seen one render and a painting.

    Honestly, it's probably more nostalgia for me than anything.  I'm hoping the game will be good, but not counting on it, but I can't wait to see Freeport, Qeynos, Guk, etc, again (hopefully all those places will still be there).

    How can you say it dosnt look better then archage or black desert when there is basicly no information about what it actually is?

    I believe it's because Mr. Bill Murphy told everyone that it's going to make them poop their pants.

    Sooo yeah. Then Smed says sandbox and people started drooling. He's made some other vague comments and people translated them to match their dreams and desires. Needless to say, someone (many someones actually) will be disappointed.

    Smedley has been preaching the sandbox gospel for a long time now.

    At least I think it was him that did a reddit AMA quite some time ago and stated that the future of MMORPGs was in sandboxes.

    Is the word 'hype' used to describe games outside mmorg and other for like forums?    The problem is not the game or the publisher or people looking forward to such games.  Years ago people enjoyed getting excited about games, then trolling/bitterness and general lack of manners came along.  worst side of the internet.

    I hope the game is great, I know little about it, something to look forward to.

    Ooo good, was worried we were not going to get more threads with the same topic today. Come on people we need 4 more threads just like this one before the day is out =-P

    I blame the scarcity principle.  Sometimes the more unobtainable something is (information on a game) the more desirable it becomes.  It has to do with human psychology and not wanting to limit our freedom.

    You’ve mentioned a desire for more sandbox MMOs in your Reddit AMA, and sandboxes are obviously a major draw for Eve players. Do you have plans for adding sandbox elements to PS2, and if so, would you like to discuss them? If there really is an untapped market for sandbox MMOs, why haven’t we seen more of them, besides Eve and SWG?

    Sandbox elements - SOE is redefining itself as a creator of emergent gameplay experiences. That's our future.
     
    You can call it sandbox but it's so much more than that. A good example is Player owned bases in Planetside 2. That's coming. We're going to make huge continents that are empty and have vast resources on them and players can fight it out and put down their own bases there and other players can come and obliterate them. Sound familiar Eve Players? Actually we had something like this in Star Wars Galaxies too. THAT is content. At some point as an industry we need to realize that we have already lost the race to outpace players in making content. I personally thought SWTOR was a great game. I loved Diablo III. The problem is you get to the endgame and as game makers it's not just expensive. it's impossible to stay ahead of the curve.
     
    Think about this statement - If WoW had come out yesterday.. at what point would people be "done" with the content. We need to focus on game systems that are perpetual and give players a lot more control over what they can do rather than JUST putting yet another dragon in front of them with scripted content. We need to be doing both in order to be successful. And that's our plan.

    Could be the possibility that they're hyping the game up so much before anyone sees it because it's poor quality.

     I'm going to have a big grin on my face if the only thing we get is a big trailer just to hype it some more.

    F2P and SoE in the same sentence turn me off. Unless they can pull it off like GW2 or Aion and make it a truly f2p and not p2w then I am not interested. Id rather a sub or a b2p if it means no p2w. Not saying it will be p2w just dont like the way SoE has done it in the past.

    Hey now, there's a big different between GW2 and AION. The team developing AION is actually putting content in the game. While the team who's developing GW2 is putting content in for about a month then removing it (taking 1 step forward and 1 step back).

    Wait, has bujko found actual gameplay on the game that no one but TTH and MMORPG have seen? If I'm correct everyone but these two media sources are completely in the dark about the game as of right now.

    Actually there is some leaked gameplay footage but its been taken down. Sorry not gameplay but character models in motion.

    The hype is more about the possibility and the nostalgia of Everquest than anything else. Players are hoping for a taste of what EQ was so many years ago.

    Just because I'm a gamer doesn't mean I drive a Honda.

    I believe the only thing that'll hype me up as far as a potential successor for a MMO it'll have to be Anarchy Online 2.0. EQN is just a potential time filler.

    I don't even see how you can say it looks nice, let alone not better than Archage or Black Desert.  The only thing we know about it is the name, and SANDBOX screamed from the rooftops.  I don't know if it is better or worse than Scarlet Blade at this point.
