    You do realize this game has an awesome crafting and housing system right? WoW has never had housing and its crafting is "WoW" crafting (which is dull and uninspired.

    Best MMO I've ever played, because it's taken the best bits from them all and found a perfect fit.  I'll call it an Aston Martin.

    To those moaning that it is nothing new, well, an Aston Martin is still a car with wheels and an engine - but it's how it's put together and how it performs that counts.  I want an Aston Martin - I want Wildstar (and I have it).

    WoW who?

    Personally, I use a Naga, and can't play MMOs without one now.  

    Hey bill if your naga takes a crap like 3 of mine (double click issue) I would pick of the G600. Its a much better built mouse. I haven't had a single issue.

    Are you playing? I have to agree, the crafting is really good so far. I love that it's not did you build the gear right or wrong, but does it fit the stat and AMP build you want to create.

    I'm on Evindra (NA RP): Torkwrench. I'm the parent of three bots. One is a brute, the other is a loose cannon, and the third is a floating fact gatherer.

    Thanks, Bill. Appreciate the review. For those that have played the game, how demanding is it? I used to play Skyrim, for example with mods/enb's, etc. So would I be able to run it?

     

    Quick Edit: I wonder if a person could build that hamster ball mount... :P

    I got a 7 day pass from one of my friends. I really liked the game in open beta, but I could not get past the stylized aspect. But the systems are so well done, I'm gonna try to get over it haha.

    I'm making a new guy to play with my friends on Thunderfoot (Dominion)

    The graphics kept me from playing it, glad to see it wasn't another failure though (so far).

    Dozens of MMO's, RTS's, FPS's, etc.

    Better than I thought it would be. A good surprise in a slowing genre!!

    Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

    I bought one when SWTOR came out. It felt awkward and I returned it . Maybe it is time to give it another try. I don't know really.

    I had the same issue with a Naga. Too many tiny buttons in too little space for me. I switched to a Logitech (M90?) that has 6 different sized buttons on the side. Not as good as having 32,431 needle point sized buttons on my mouse, but a step up from 3 button mouse and still comfortable.

    Thing is with the Naga is like their Keyboards, every button is program able. Every button can be macroed. It makes it so you have to do a lot less button pressing. I found the button small at first but over a few weeks it became really easy to use.

    Glad to hear it. I don't mind the art style at all, but the actual graphics, mostly the "grass" and flora look weird to me like older console type of graphics. The over the top humor can be a bit much too, but other than that it's fun. The combat feels tighter now and that was my other complaint.

    Let me know what you play and what professions you choose.

    Even after all this time,i still have no interest in this game. It looks like wow and play like it in ways from what i've heard. After ESO i will wait and see how things go with this game. But one thing i do know is this is a game based on raiding and i'm really tired of that.

    I"m just glad to see a positive consensus about a game around here for a change, even if it's not a game I'd enjoy.

    I also use the M95.  Having buttons where your thumb needs to grip your mouse seems like poor design to me.  I guess if you palm grip it may not be as much of an issue.

    Why didn't you mention that although there are lots of different things to do, they are all on rails.  Each aspect is it's own miniature linear adventure.

    Played it in Beta for about a week.  It was okay.  It felt like any number of MMO's I had played before.  ESO is still the better game overall, regardless of what the scores say.  After all, the scores say that GW2 was almost a perfect game.  And... it wasn't.  The reason is because ESO actually did some innovation in the gameplay.  Wildstar didn't.

  • NightHaveNNightHaveN CarolinaPosts: 830Member Uncommon

    The first dungeons at level 20 are very challenging.  If that's an indication of how hard dungeons and raids will be in this game, then it will be really fun.

     

    One of the bosses in the first dungeons have mechanics close to Blade Lord Ta'yak from Heart of Fear raid, and that's on the starter dungeons.

    Well it's been a long time between drinks.

    This one looks like it could be a keeper :)

    Hats off to Wildstar !  It's brought the " FUN " back into my gaming life.

  • KuinnKuinn MestaPosts: 2,093Member

    I tried the beta and I have to say the game felt really really polished, so if it has all the content people are saying it does, it's a one rare exception in mmo launches and +1 for that!

     

    I was very close to buying it my self, but I think if I have to try and convince my self to buy something it's not worth a box + sub, so WS is a pass for now at least.

     

    I just had this feeling like something is missing, like with Rift, completely no idea of the lore and CBA to read that little quest text on kill 10 rats quests so I quickly got the "been there done that" feeling, in an unknown world, with very little motivation to do anything from immersion point of view. The action though is very smooth and has a nice unique touch to it.

     

    I think this game has done everything right in a way that it tries to. If you (me) think something is not good then it propably was not planned as such and it's just not a game for you.

     

    Ps. Have they worked on the map since open beta? I had no idea how the world looks/feels like based on the beta "world map" which was just a set of separate "levels" and had no connected world feeling.

    Yeh, maybe Carbine will give them the same paycheck that Zenimax gives for making the weekly, "This Week in Elder Scrolls Online" bit.  Think we will see a, "This Week in Wildstar"?  I guess it depends on how deep Carbine's wallet is.

    If we get a paycheck for TWIESO someone owes me some damn money.
