  • Originally posted by ThomasN7 It isn't a mmo, it just borrows some mmo elements such as persistence and you get your own loot. The mmo genre is so bad now that they media has to cash in on anything good just to save the mmo image.  Anyway, I'll be …
  • Originally posted by Voqar  In the "good old days" you had to group.  You weren't going to level much in EQ, FF, or DAoC without grouping.  You had to have a good rep as a player and behave because if you didn't, you didn't get groups, and thus yo…
  • I am victim of an inner conflict with regards to this topic. I do long for the the old MMO archetecture however, as much I as I hate to say it, I do prefer the current MMO model, though not for reasons one may think. Everquest 2 is probably one of …
  • Although you can never capture the true essense of an RPG in a video game, due to the medium's natural restictions, some developers have done a phenomenal job with the attempt; old Bioware titles and CD Projekt's The Witcher series to name a couple.…
  • The console market is definitiely dominating the gaming industry but PC's will be around for quite some time. What I actually forsee is the gaming console, settop cable box and the desktop PC eventually becoming an all-in-one entertainment unit (wit…
  • Originally posted by tachgb Is anyone not worried by those bad player animations? I hope they're only temporary, no matter how pretty the gameworld looks, having terrible animations will hamper game immersion.   I think they'll fix the anima…
  • Originally posted by DeserttFoxx I was having this conversation with my boy, and basically my arguement was, because there is no subscription fee they have more incentive to create unnique innovated content, because the game will be supported by exp…
  • What boggles my mind is that why would anyone pay for an Extended Platinum account when a standard Live account gives you the same stuff for 179 a year as opposed to the 200 theyre asking.
  • Originally posted by Zackhigbie I'm positive this has been said time and time again, but I just need to vent.  I feel like the MMORPG genre has evolved into something that it was never supposed to be.  I also feel like World of Warcraft is the reaso…
  • From what I have heard, AoC had a terrible launch. i didn't purchase the game right away as I was still involved in others. However, I do have an active account now and I can say that the game plays very well. In fact, it is one of the best looking,…
  • Personally, I don't want twitch elements in my MMORPGs. I'm in my late 30's and I've been a hardcore gamer most of my life (yes, I had Pong as a child). I play just about every genre of game, save sports games (not a big fan). I play my XBOX regular…
  •  I disagree that EQ2 is terrrible for newcomers. I was a newcomer once; back when even less information was available than now (just after launch).  MMOs are a complex genre and there is much to be learned about any game in the MMO genre. I cannot s…
  • There's no such thing as a flawless launch. Such a thing would constitute that no adjustments need be made. However, LOTRO was a very good launch. Other companies should take note of Turbine and their accomplishment. Funcom, despite their launch t…
  • Elladriel, I understand what you mean and I feel your pain, however, I must say that I welcome the casual play style. I've been around since the Everquest 1 days so I've been around the block once or twice. However, I find that I don't have as much …
  • The title of this post is, no doubt, wishful thinking. Although the root of video games lies with the PC, it is the console that is responsible for where gaming is today. The console is here to stay for several reasons, but namely for its market. Co…
  • Originally posted by TheHatter MMOs are just toddlers still.   I concur. Years back, the MMO was an aqcuired taste. As it has become mainstream, game developers are trying out a huge variety of formulas in an attempt to appease a much larg…
  • A beta-test is a necessary step in the design of any MMO. It's unfortunate that, lately, it is being used as a marketing tool to draw in players to pre-order a game. This is a bad idea. Beta-testing is about allowing "pre-selected" players to play a…
  • First of all EQ2 was not a failure. The numbers speak for themselves. Where other MMO's have failed, EQ2 is still going strong after 6 years. As with most other games, it had its flaws but is still an all-around solid game. With regards to EQ3; on…
  • Dragon Age is a fantastic game. One of the best RPG's ever created. I recommend the PC version; it's a better, all around, experience over the consoles.
  • Originally posted by rolandhadley I want to be clear that I am NOT arguing that SWTOR should be just like SWG - as numerous people have pointed out, there were a ton of big flaws in SWG ranging from class imbalances to a lack of story content, et…
