    I guess we could consider ourselves lucky, just watching Brad playing Saint's Row IV...does the parkour thing with a thong riding up the chick's...smiling cheeks.

    That'll be next weeks reveal, I 'spose.

     

    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.

    It looks terrible................... it looked like one episode of Tomb Raider

    It has a strong Arcade feel that I don't particularly like

    I said it before and I'll say it again, all those animations are cute and all, but ultimately meaningless (esp for pvp) when you aren't executing each and every move.

    They've already stated that those moves will automatically happen as you traverse the terrain. Which means, all you have to do is press space bar and hold forward for instant parkour. And that's lame.

     

    At least in Age of Wushu you get to control the flight actions which makes for tactically interesting combat as you have to anticipate which move your opponent might do. Whereas in this, they're just animations (like the Night Elf flip in WoW) which amount to nothing more than that, animations.

    And here I thought this threat would actually showcase some "gameplay" and not just "someone pressed jump while running".

    the thought of an ogre mage doing this destroy any immersion left.  When everyone is special nobody is, to all of u thinking "ohhh its cool",i dont want to burst ur bubble but everybody is capable of doing this, even full armored chars played by 5 years old. enjoy ur arcade trash,
  • georgatos7georgatos7 RPosts: 54Member

    Awesome. That's the game all the kids were waiting for...

     

    I like the building video though.

  • kellian1kellian1 Phillipsburg, NJPosts: 233Member Uncommon

    Only conclusion I can make are skateboards will be now obviously be "mounts" in the game (including the ever rare hoverboard from back to the future).

    In all seriousness...I get that some of that looks pretty cool, but this has newly released game exploiting written all over it

    Yea cuz mmo characters werent super at all before this with their magic and being able to kill big dragons and monsters.  It was so much more realistic...

    Looks amazing, looks like alot of fun. Really glad the focus will not be a gallery of next gen graphics, pushing graphics usually means the game is going to be a mess, just so it can have the best graphic. Which means a week later it 2ill get beat out by the next game 5hat comes along.

    Right because no one likes Arcade Games. News flash, not every MMO needs to be the same. You don't have to play it, variety is the spice of life. I enjoy a lot of game styles.

    cheers

    Gonada Dahung,over 20 years of mmorpg's and counting....Please Lord, let someone make a game that had all the awesomeness of UO, EQ and EVE...

    My favourite comments here are about "game for kidzzz" or "Game for the massezzzz" or "Tis gem haz nO phYscs"

     

    Well, screw you. I'm 24 and I'm looking forward to this game. I guess I'm a kid and mass audience at the same time and devs should milk me at best and blah blah blah. What a load of s.. Seriously.

    The movement system here is no more then a demo of EQLandmark and it looks amazing compared to anything that was before it. 

    you can always pretend to be adult and wait for uninspired Black Desert for example and by playing it you can prove that you are old fart that is looking for shaders, tesselation and other stuff that 99% of gamers does not need. In fact you can contribute to the forum on how awesome you are.

     

    I should add that EQNext is first of all a VIDEOGAME and it does the most important part in it compared to any modern POS MMO out there right now. Fun Factor. End of story.

    Total agreement. So tired of all the haters that want a game to be more punishment then entertainment. Complaining that a game is not designed for 40 year old men. I was 17 or so when EQ came out. It was not designed for old men, sorry to break it to everyone that thinks it was some mature, dark, realistic themed fantasy game.

    Acrobatics here are overkill and unnecessary. Doesn't connect with the game's universe imo. Anyway guys, don't base your hype on graphics, we all know the core of an MMO are the combat mechanics diversity (skills, talent trees, etc).

    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    While I agree you should not judge this video much. It is a demo from Everquest Landmark. There is a possibility that the class "Adventurer" that they announced has abilities to travel so fast and he cn jump like a monkey :D

  • observerobserver Houston, TXPosts: 3,010Member Uncommon
    I'm not liking that style at all.  I'll have to try it out first though.  It might surprise me, depending on how it meshes with actual combat and gameplay.
  • MardyMardy hollywood, CAPosts: 2,213Member
    I clicked on this hoping for GAMEPLAY video, not just another running & jumping around clip which is what this is.  Why is everybody so fascinated by running and jumping?  A big hoopla about the next big thing, yet they just can't for the life of them show us anything worth watching.

    Strikes me as a demand from the console gamer masses.  I was hoping for a serious PC MMO, sigh.

    fits the cheesy cartoon graphics quite well, little kids are gonna love this game!!

  • DauntisDauntis Kansas City, MOPosts: 550Member Uncommon
    So, let me get this right. You are okay with rogues being able to stealth in broad daylight right in front of people, wizards summoning elemental spells, teleportation, a guy who can transform into a bear, two tons of dragon flying through the air on inadequate wingspans and bikini mail that has the same stats as the guy's full chain... but you can't accept some gymkata parkouring with people turning in mid air?

    I would like to give an opinion on this post, but if I agree I will offend people who disagree. While if I disagree my comment will be seen as inflammatory. Either way I will get banned by this site full of the most delicate flowers in online gaming. Ban people for giving honest opinions... beautiful. Unfortunately I still like the articles.

    We'll get back to you 3 months after the games released and ask how you how well all that "fun" held up for you.  You may be 24 and excited about this, and im sure there are plenty of early 20's as well that are just as excited, but i assure you this game will have a terrible community.  Its going to be filled with nanosecond attention span teens and tweens and is going to make the DOTA 2 community look mature.

    Yeah.. well. thats a fair bet, isn't it? Because every damn community out there is like that the last ten years. And beside of that i guess the community will be better than in a lot of other MMORPGs.

    Because.. simply put.. creativity and sandbox gameplay usually connects people a little bit more as any 0815 themepark.

    Ok. so a little bet? Wildstar, TESO or EQN, what will be the best and what will be the worst community? I bet EQN will not the worst out of those 3, even that it is F2P and F2P don't make communities any better, but usually worst.
