As someone who was BIG into this title.. and been monitoring the game for the last few months, I can tell you that it's a sad state of affairs at the moment.

1. The raiding is very difficult (which is fine..if you have enough people doing it)
2. There's nothing much of consequence to do at level cap unless you raid. There are only so many new people to run through dungeons (most are alts of people already raiding/end gamers)
3. There are only a very small handful of top end guilds even attempting the content, and there arent new guilds being built up behind them
4. You can feel the population dwindling, you see it.. there's something there that tells you this game needs a HUGE change, else it will fall flat

i loved the idea of the hardcore raiding, hell, up through hardmode Lich King, i cleared everything and did it quickly with top guilds.. but WS doesnt have the friendliness of WoW, the community.. etc.

I am going to bet that EQ Next learns a HUGE lesson here, and doesnt make their next title nearly as exclusive to people. I am not saying "easy mode" everything, but there needs to be better content for more people. The hardcore mentality really did die out years ago. --and I was one of the many saying that WS can support the hardcore end game raiders.. i admit it, i was very, very wrong.

Jet pack jumping galore. It really doesnt seem to fit in with a game that has current day wep technology and being played in a CoD environment.

I mentioned this before and I'll say it again.

I watched some recent live stream of the unveiling of the game, some German team vs. some other team during this event. It was 95% jump jet, shoot, jump, shoot. If you dislike recoil, bloom, inaccurate weapons.. in an Arena-FPS feeling game.. then go for it.
The game really came across like it was trying to use Quake/UT mechanics in the speed, but then in the CoD setting. Remember how Quake Wars was far too twitchy/fast for the mechanics of the game (they where "thinking mans" mechanics, in a twitch shooter..doesnt work).. AW felt like twitch mechanics in a thinking mans game.. didnt jive one bit to me.

I'm almost certain that the level they were playing on is just an updated level from Ghosts, and if it's not, the mapping team lacks creativity..because I felt it was the same level immediately, and that's with limited experience in Ghosts.

From what I saw, the game smacks of "make everything shiny/fast for the ADD console kids".

From what i watched..it was nonstop jump jet, shoot, jump, shoot. i understand that in an arena game, but not in a CoD/BF game.

FPS related (i know, it's off topic).. but Twitch is streaming the new CoD game release right now.. some party event thingy..not sure if anyone cares.
*shrug*

Let me save you the time:
It's fucking awful looking - mechanics wise. It's nonstop quake 1 rocket jumps (with the jump jets) + regular old COD shooting. It's jump, jump, shoot. If you hate bunny hopping.. this game will make you mad with anger. Holy fuck this looks infuriating.

Also, i played very very little of the last CoD title -Ghosts. However, something about this demo map reminds me of a Ghosts map in every way. I swear to god it's the same map layout, but with new textures. Map name: Defender. the Ghosts maps it reminds me of is called - Siege.

Well.. I will say this:

The more I read about this game, the more I am all aboard the hype train. I know that's not a popular opinion around here, but i want this game to kick a lot of ass, and set a precedent for games and gamers in the future.. and hopefully we get to see better games because devs arent beholden to a committee of sorts.

1. This is the wrong video
2. I've been coming here for ..jesus, 2 decades? I have no idea how to reach Blue.
3. Is Rift still doing well? I thought that since the MMOs that came after didn't really do that well, maybe Rift would've folded by now? Good for them if they are still doing well.

AHEM.
*readies himself*

I have seen this trailer now, and I will say this. I enjoyed what I saw for multiplayer. I admit, this game has me interested thus far.

Do with me what you will, but be gentle.
You may begin.

I should probably start paying attention to this game, huh? If my friends here at Blues (Oddly enough, i hold you all in high regard when it comes to game reviews and impressions) say this game is good.. then I should really give her a look.

I'd really like a new Enemy Territory.. done proper, not like Quake Wars. Which we told them all the things that were wrong, and they still didnt listen.

All i need is new maps, the old weapons, and for the community to be able to map and mod again.

Keep vehicles in vehicle-only maps, and give me back the glory tht was the orginal UT. It was near perfect, you really dont need to remake the game and make it friendly for the console fucking moron crowd that has ADD and needs everything now and shiny and in fucking abundance!

As a cybersecurity person..actual title - Information Assurance (and have been for the better part of 20 years- in some capacity)..
We're only seeing more and more jobs open up, more businesses needing us, paying us big.. and when people refuse to employ/deploy our services.. they will be hit and hit hard.

Security isn't a good "after the fact" measure to bolt on, it has to be baked in for the best results. Failing that, never applying defense in depth, good backups, auditing, etc.. will cost many people and companies.

We're finding shortages of qualified IA analysts/engineers.. and that's in the DoD in a HUGE military town - Colorado Springs.

I tried to like this show, hell, I'm a nerd and a geek.. this is right up my alley.. but I was absolutely let down everywhere I turned.
God awful acting, campy special effects, forced dialogue. It looks like a poorly thrown together, straight to dvd sci fi flick by a first year film student.

Anyhow, for my cheesy sci-fi aliens-esque shows.. Falling Skies does it for me.
