  • Perfect World Entertainment Statement Regarding Runic Games & Motiga Studio Closures - MMORPG.com N

    Yep, I am following CO (*) since they (somewhat) renewed their attention on the game about 2 years ago, and my bet would go on "it will stay". They haven't closed it during the years when their focus was on Neverwinter and CO was on maintenance, and now they're even updating the game quite frequently.

    As for the actual topic, at first it was a bit surprising, since PWE rarely close down games, they kept RaiderZ open even after its own development team left it behind :smiley:
    But with this statement it fits much more into their MO. It's still the same unfortunate move to the actual people (hope they will find a new place soon), but at least the games will remain open and available.

    Since I don't play diablo clones and moba-esque stuff, personally I'm not much affected, but Hob is really good. I'm kinda the inverse of @Syphin_B , that "corny puzzle game" was much better than their previous two diablo clones and I have a buddy with the same opininon, so make that "Nobody wanted Hob, that's for damn sure... " into nobody but 2 (at least)  :wink:

    (*) edit: I play CO since the start, with that following I just mean I posted quite a lot about it in the last two years, and kept Suzie spammed with the CO news :smiley:

    And Eve and STO don't HAVE PvE (or rather, have it as an afterthought so it's not done nearly as well as their pvp).
    I know Gdemami is dishing out LOLs like there's no tomorrow ( :wink: ) but in this case I have to agree... afterthought? STO is all about PvE, at launch you couldn't even roll a Klingon before finishing the story with your SF... and Klingons were an afterthought for years, a smaller sector, much less story, starting at level 20, etc. They only got their level 1-20 content when Cryptic added Romulans into the mix.

    Funny thing is, with all modes counted, your precious TOR has more pvp than STO :smiley:
  • Johnny Depp's Production Company to Produce TSW Series - Secret World Legends - MMORPG.com

    They can do what GoT did with A Song of Ice and Fire then ;)
    Never liked Martin (and miss those days 20 years ago when you could actually debate on his screen-influenced writing style in peace, without mouthbreather addicts rushing in waving flags that GoT is the best thing since sliced bread, they know, they watched it on TV :lol: ), but it's a great comparison in work tempo: Martin and FC are in a toe-to-toe competition about who shall be the living avatar of the concept Soon(™)  :smiley:

    Fun fact, but Depp also played once a similar "slow working" writer in Secret Window (blaming the so-called writer's block). Not a bad movie, but I believe Turturro was better in it.
  • Johnny Depp's Production Company to Produce TSW Series - Secret World Legends - MMORPG.com

    Ok, at first the mandatory ( :lol: ) rounds: F U ncom for not doing this over the years, the option was there (maybe not much after Ragnar left), as usual, the PR got their daily dosage of white lines apparently ("the globally successful MMO game", "in 2012 as one of that year’s top games" :lol: ), why call it "The Secret World" when you killed that game off and now it's Legends, etc. etc.

    So, TV.
    I don't think Defiance is a fitting example here, they did the lore building for and with the show in mind, the game was just a tie-in, supporting. With Ragnar the IP and the lore is in the games, so the show will be the supporting one.

    Hopefully they won't mess with anything in the games (it's enough what damage FC did already with funcomming parts of the story in their Legends...) and they were serious about the announcement's "will be based on the universe of the Secret World IP" (emphasis is mine). There's lot to cover outside the games as well.

    Hopefully they won't use the NPCs, their VAs are 6 years older now, some of them not even available or not fitting for their character's look and behaviour. Except Stormare... man I hope they can somehow squeeze in Aldini for a short appearance :smiley:

    I hope it will be something like True Detective was (first season, obviously :wink: I don't mind Vaughn, just... ). Revolving around one case while world and character building happens on the go. If Depp is on the cast, I hope he will be a true detective (pun intended) this time, and not a goofball like his Guy LaPointe was...

    And the main case should be something which we never had a detailed grasp, like the missing painting from several years ago. Or something which we never had details because FC stopped delivering content 1.5 year ago (idiots), like the Hive.
    On a second thought, Hive would be a nice pick. It could easily support a season-long investigation, and all factions are affected, the showrunner could add in the differences and faction grudges too.
    But since they said in the article "Central to the plot is their battle against the supernatural in an adventure that spans across our world", I guess that won't be the case. Maybe for season 2.

    Lol, actually that would be epic, if the show's season 2 would arrive sooner than FC's 'promised since 2014' season 2 :lol:

    Wow... so, for me, someone who did not have a problem with the combat animations and fluidity, this re-design is terrible... they took away everything i liked, the synergies and the ability to make wacky not-flavour-of-the-month builds... for me this seems like game over at this point, experiencing the story up to Tokyo for the 5th time does not sound that exciting anymore. Hm, Tokyo, probably they'll open it again, wonder if they will leave the horrible Aegis grind as it was before.
    Scary stuff or not, welcome to the club... it really is terrible and Tokyo is not even there yet, just the base game. And yep, AEGIS will still be there.

    People that don't like change lash out irrationally in bitterness and want you to share in their hate.
    There's nothing wrong with changes, Bowie even wrote a great song about them.
    The wrong starts when they (FC in this case) change almost everything, and all of the changes are much worse than the originial state was.
    Literally, there's not one tiny detail in Legends which was changed for the better. Except the chance that it might, probably, on some chance be better for Funcom's wallet than TSW was - but that has nothing to do with the game itself, only important for their dumb beancounters.

    Add to that the year-long lies about the new content (might I add, it's still nowhere, just some promises for the end of the year, so don't be so sure there will be any :wink:  just look at the previous year), also add to that they killed TSW for this crap, and that bitterness you mentioned seems already a bit more rational, eh?
