[Column] General: My Own 2015 Watch List

BillMurphyBillMurphy Former Managing EditorMember LegendaryPosts: 4,565

Rob recently penned his own “Looking Forward to 2015” article, and Shawn did his own take on what to watch in 2015, but since the year’s only just begun and we’re coming off a pretty underwhelming 2014 for new MMOs, we might as well take yet another peek at what the next year could bring us. 

Read the rest of Bill's "My Own 2015 Watch List".

EQNext, is of course, included.

Try to be excellent to everyone you meet. You never know what someone else has seen or endured.

    I am super excited for Gloria Invictus. I hope 2015 brings a lot of good news about that. I am also going to be keeping an eye on Elder Scrolls, I really enjoyed that game even though I have not played since release.

    That Guild Wars 2 login screen knocked up my wife. Must be the second coming!

    I am excited for...

    NONE!

    Really, I've got everything I need: Which is huge when it comes from me...

    I am glad you at least hinted at Camelot Unchained and the rest of the list is spot on. The Repopulatio is another to keep an eye on that will not be finished in 2015.

    Bill and I are both looking to fill the hole that Dark Age of Camelot left in our souls. I think Camelot Unchained is the answer, but we'll just have to wait and see.

    NCSoft can suck it for what they did to City of Heroes.

    Guild Wars 2 just needs to get it together and release an expansion.

    Skyforge is a joke where the devs talk about solo instances.

    EQNext will probably be on this list next year.

    I'm excited to see what will happen with The Repopulation, Star Citizen, EQNext and hope something awesome will come out of left field but really I'm looking forward to RPGs like Withcer 3 and sandbox games like Space Engineers, MineCraft, 7 Days to Die, From the Depths etc more than MMORPGs.

    Have to agree with your list Bill.  It would be really nice if one of the Indies also turns out good.  It would be really nice to have a f2p game out there that does not demand the item shop.

    Guild Wars 2 desperately needs a proper expansion and it needs it right now, not in a year from now.

    There is literally nothing worth playing or looking forward to.  Every mmo is a carbon copy of each other and the future messiahs are gonna be hype train let downs like the last decade of mmos have been.  The mmo genre is dead and rotting.

    Playing: Smite, Marvel Heroes
    Played: Nexus:Kingdom of the Winds, Everquest, DAoC, Everquest 2, WoW, Matrix Online, Vangaurd, SWG, DDO, EVE, Fallen Earth, LoTRo, CoX, Champions Online, WAR, Darkfall, Mortal Online, Guild Wars, Rift, Tera, Aion, AoC, Gods and Heroes, DCUO, FF14, TSW, SWTOR, GW2, Wildstar, ESO, ArcheAge
    Waiting On: Nothing. Mmorpg's are dead.

    no bill , we don't need a healer for Gw2.  The game is not designed that way.  A monk would be cool if it used the bo staff and iron fist weapons. but not healing.  guardians already carry the 5 man dungeon group easily.

    ESO on the couch - would be nice if they added native controller support to pc..... I won't play the console version now that I bought it on sale on steam for pc.... unless.... the console version is straight up buy to play and some of my irl friends buy it too. The rumor mill keeps spinning about ESO going f2p or b2p we will see.

     

     

    I would prefer buy to play no cash shops

     

     

    ***My payment model hierarchy*** 

    -begging of 2015 until the new game devs aka (accountants) come up with another one ....

     

    F2P with cosmetic shop  >=  Buy to play with no cash shops > Buy to play no cash shops but dlc > Buy to play cosmetic shops > F2P with microtrans > Buy to play with microtrans > P2P sub fee > buy to play with sub fee > pay to win > p2p with sub fee with microtrans of any kind

    EQ Next launch in 2015? You must have some insider knowledge. My understanding is they are just now shifting over to full production. If it comes out in 2015, I see it as being pretty shallow. Maybe 2016...late 2016, and that's a big maybe, until then I will keep putting my money on a roulette table. We are talking launch...right?

    B2P no cash shops? I presume that means no DLC either since you listed DLC as another option. So how exactly do they make money once the box sales slow down? Though I can't imagine anyone would play too long term with no new content lol.

    I enjoy it far more than being a mere DPS. TYVM!

    But the best roles have got to be force multiplier ones such as buffers, debuffers, summoners, CC masters etc. Shame that we no longer have those and instead have a mockery called GW2 where you can only DPS.

    "MMO on the couch..." hmm... I'm tempted. I do have that PS4 sitting over there...hooked up to my surround receiver and speakers... and the 60" screen...

     

    They did say something about transferring characters (or is it whole accounts?) to the PS4 when it launches... tempting...

    I'm on a PC/MMO hiatus since update 5 since Zenimax wasn't able to fix my combat stuttering issue on my gaming laptop despite 4 weeks of extensive testing. With that said, it forced me to focus on a console for the first time in 10 years. Playing Dragon Age Inquisition on the PS4 on a 70" screen with surround sound..I only wonder why I waited this long to try. Maybe because Dragon Age is the first game on the PS4 to interest me. I LOVE IT. With that said, since I have so much remodeling to do in my home, I'm in zero rush to purchase a high end gaming PC just to play ESO. Depending on the timing, I may come back when it moves to consoles because I now have new faith in them. The graphics on the PS4 for Dragon Age are excellent.

    When the Nvidia cards are more capable of running 4K and the 4K gsync monitors come down in price..that will be when I start to think about the new PC. in the meantime, PS4 all the way. By then ESO will be on update 1.8 or something and the game will even more awesome.

    im just waiting for a game that has a really great combat system thats dynamic, engaging, fast and impactfull with a lot of oomph...

    something like the lovechild between teso and dark souls

    ps: blade and soul is still a thing?

    pps: you guys above are aware that you dont need a console to play on your tv'? i have a gtx 980 packed in mini itx pc (node 304) that isnt bigger than a console (but much more powerful) and play on my couch...

    "MMO on the couch.." sounds like lazy gaming.

    I may be the only GW2 fan that hopes Arenanet don't make an expansion as I would much rather have them focus on making a new game.

    Im also hoping we get open beta of Black Desert and Bless in 2015

    My sentiments exactly. Ive been holding out hope, but at some point I am just going to move on forever.

    and how would they make any money?

  • GreyhavenGreyhaven Member UncommonPosts: 38

    I'm betting ESO will go B2P like TSW and will charge about 30.00 for bi-annual expansions and have a modest vanity cash shop offering.

    if the quality of the expansions are there this game will do quite well.

    Keeping an eye on Firefall (which I play). Big update coming soon. Sad to say the best time I ever had in an MMO was in their beta and they changed the game on launch.
