Awesome Review.... FAQs and Constructive Critism

cyraethcyraeth Member Posts: 53

I just saw a video from TotalBiscuit and he's toughs on the 3 bwe.... he manage to do an excellent overview of the game, pointing the strengh of the game, answering some questions with solid evidence (questions that seemed to be popular on this forums "DE are not good, hearts are same quest as Wow" etc) and does a rational cristism of what might be missin..

anyways, heres the link.... the video its 37 min long and may contain some spoilers in Asura areas (youve been warned)... if you have doubs of the game or just want to heard a gaming eminence talking about Guild Wars 2.. then check it out....! Probably many of you already did!

    He does a good job of explaining how quests in GW2 are a lot differn't than other MMOs

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    just finished the whole thing.. great stuff to show people how this game really tries to set itself apart from the other sea of themeparks out there

    Thanks for the link!

    I honestly didn't expect this from TB, I kinda got the impression that he was done covering the game. It's nice to see his final thoughts, and overall I'd say he's pretty spot on (on both the positives and the concerns).

    I don't agree with him about high-lvl content, though. I think that being forced to repeat low-lvl events isn't going to be an issue. If anything, I think the big problem w/ higher lvl content might be polish. Being as they haven't been tested nearly as thoroughly as the other zones, I'm guessing that the higher areas will have more bugs / glitches that will need to be ironed out.

    Thx for the positive feedback.... i do believe its important to set faqs straight in this forums...Totalbicuits really shines when it comes to arguments... hopefully this video will change the mind of some ilogical haters (not liking the game is OK, not liking it because of stupid reasons and/or lack of information or just fanatism its not OK, and actually gets banned by the forum rules) educate players is the best answer (triying not to sounf cocky on that one)

    Very interesting,

     

    Finally a reviewer that knows what i am thinking. His concerns in generaly are mine...

     

    The game is far from perfect, and i am currently wondering if it will be really "Done" when its released.

    It's not a review. Totalbiscuit doesn't do reviews. Other than that, yeah, good video, good feedback.

    and this is nitpicking, Total biscuit in general gives his opinion, in all honesty, where reviews are often to political to keep good relations with the developers.

    Do you know how much of old GW the new game plays like?

    Lore aside, 0%. It isn't ANYTHING like GW1, it should prolly have been named something else (since its even missing the thematic gvg, unless they plan to implement it as the game goes that is).

    a little bit of nitpicking at 6:00 when TB mentioned "they (ANET) adapted WoW's vehicle system" for environmental weapons:
    vehicle system came to WoW in Wrath of the Lich King.
    Junundu in GW1 Nightfall predates that for 2 years and Siege devourer in Eye of the North a year before WotLK. ANET was doing that before Blizzard did. I dunno if other MMOs had done that prior to NF, but thats not the point ;)

    I think he meant that Blizzard adapted their own vehicle system for environmental style weapons - and how it took years to do, yet GW2 is doing it out the box.

    TotalBiscuit insists that his videos are not reviews yet MMORPG forumites continue to them reviews. TotalBiscuit gives his first impressions on games, he doesn't do full-on reviews, which normally require a reviewer to invest dozens of hours into a game, and possibly hundreds of hours in case of large MMORPGs, because he hasn't got the time to do so and because he doesn't want his opinion to be regarded as some sort of review.

    Yeah, he means how WoW adapted the vehicle system introduced in Wotlk to questing in Cataclysm. I do not think he ever wanted to imply that GW2 system is similar to WoW Vehicle system :)

    In general, it was a nice video :)

    Also I just realized that Event chains are what Blizzard tried to do with their phasing system, only the GW2 approach is actually better cause the population is not divided into phases.

    I liked TB's "review", "opinions", or whatever else you want to describe it as.  There was a lot of things i agreed with, especially about the haters and fanboys. haha.

    *Nitpicks back* TB actually said that WoW implemented similar system by adapting it's own vehicle system. Not that GW2 uses WoWs vehicle system at any way shape or form.
