Thats pretty much how i see it as well, in the age of walkthroughs on youtube it takes 10 seconds to see how good or bad a game is. Saves you time of downloading and installing a 2gb demo and saves you space to boot.

Heck, you can judge most games by their screenshots and gameplay videos.

You're just the kind of rube that these back alley publishers/devs are banking on.

Anyone remember the "CS killer" called: Devastation?
Hahaha... good lord man. Tons of hype, and in no way did that game deliver.. the demo was horrid, but had you been one of the sheep that only read previews and looked at screenshots, you would've been all in.
------------
for me:
no demo = I "sample" the game elsewhere first..then make a buying decision.

Okay.. maybe I should reword that..

I need a lot more content in my next MMO than pretty much ever other top-tier MMO since WoW has launched with. I need to know that at the highest level, there is a game left to be played.. and a lot of it.

"From my estimation the community wants WoW + KOTOR, anything less will be a disappointment to most. "

That's exactly what I want. I want the large, expansive world that WoW brings me.. tons of content, lots of depth.. a lot of game in general. I want it to be as smooth as WoW is..I want the same comforts and convenience.

It's unfair how much of a game I want from KOTOR, it really is, and I understand this. However I look at the most-known MMO's that have come out since WoW and think "you knew your competition was WoW.. and you came out with 1/5th the game and you're wondering why your game tanked"? -stares at Champions Online/STO et al...
I understand different settings within the MMO's, and different audiences.. but when someone who's never played WoW looks at everything it has to offer, just to contrast and compare with other MMO's.. they have to feel slighted.

So in closing (wow that really escalated).. I do expect KOTOR to be as big and offer as much as WoW currently does.

I didn't buy this, but I did buy BFBC2
Exactly, same for me and most of the people I game with.

6 of my WoW guildmates didn't buy MW2 because of the cost, the lower amount of content, and especially.. the lack of dedicated servers.
We all have however purchased BC2.. and we have a handful of servers we love playing on.. well administered, good group of regulars.
---------
I too find it humorous that people are jumping ship.. good. It's just too bad Activision made as much money as they did.. would've been great if the team left mid MW2

Correct me if i'm handsome.. but I heard that in order to be competitive in PvP.. you really need to level up to the top first.. however, the best way to level is through PvE.
So if you're a fan of PvP (and in this case, it's an FPS, so I will assume you are).. you're kinds stuck like chuck.

Anyone care to give some opinions on this game? compared to.. pros/cons..

I was hoping that:
Tabula Rasa would be good
Auto Assault would be good
CoX would be good
Star Trek Online would be good
Champions Online would be good

So far.. to me.. those games are failtastic, with no depth, same color pallets, glorified character creators, and what I would like to call "games from an MMO mill".. just nothing good about them.
Yes I realize they are from different dev houses, but they are all related, or were at one time.

The name is "Respawn".. can we just imagine that it has to do with respawning in an FPS.. then draw our own conclusions there? Also, hey.. these guys previously made FPS's.. well I'll be.. okay, I'll go with that hunch then.

3. Re: More Cataclysm Class Previews Apr 12, 2010, 21:12 ColoradoHoudini
 
You mages stole my Bloodlust.. yet ANOTHER unique class identifier taken away from the Shaman.. sigh. Now.. a pure DPS class gets to go instead of a Shaman.. if you're a raid leader and you're left with one spot.. do you take the lowest DPS (Shaman).. or a Mage? Both have the benefit of Bloodlust.You take the Mage..you're lying if you say you take the hybrid DPS, and you're a dummy to boot.

Should I mention the totems range.. yeah.. it blows vs the better buffs.

I think that makes.. 3 iconic class buffs "stolen"?
Bloodlust (mages)
Windfury (DK's)
Totem of Wrath/Flametongue (Lock buff)

I took a break after we killed Arthas in 25man, my resto Shaman needs a good rest.. maybe Cata will bring me back, but right now, I really doubt it. I've been a hardcore raider since MC.. geesh, I've killed every boss in this game.. I'm a sad, sad man.

Now with 2 billion ways to customize your character.. and somehow, even less depth! More identical factories, more generic missions!!

CoX and Champions Online = character creators with a slapped-on game.

Here's to hoping the newer Superhero MMO's do this right.

In Q1 we had a TON of user-created maps that were ultra popular.. and you could download them for free from a number of sites.
IIRC, Spill the Blood et al, were a map pack.. and I want to say that there were 2-3 map packs with a handful of maps per..
I even remember a level designer named Zoid (for some reason, i can still remember that name)

McKinley Station Dave 'Zoid' Kirsch CTF2M1
The Warzone John Schultz CTF2M2
Spill the Blood Dale 'Midiguy' B. CTF2M3
The Ruins of NeoMinonk Ogre De Latoya CTF2M4
Disciple War Grounds Hexidecimal CTF2M5
Two Towers Alexander Bernecker CTF2M6
Gloom Castles Tim Willits CTF2M7
Capturephobolis American McGee CTF2M8 ---hah!

News Comments > On BFBC2's Brisk Sales
10. Re: On BFBC2's Brisk Sales Mar 18, 2010, 23:30 ColoradoHoudini
 
Actual issues with the game (for me)

-still can't see pings (even when I run as admin)
-can't add people to friends list
-server list takes a while to load
-still can't bind ENTER to anything without also getting the squad/loadout screen to pop up every time

Things I do to "fix" these issues I have:
1. find 1-3 very good servers.. play on them..
2. when i want to go back to them, go to my history (adding to favorites doesnt work every time)

There are some nagging issues..issues that should've been fixed pre release, or during the beta itself.
However.. when the game is good, it's freaking amazing.

And now i cannot connect to any server that has over 20 people on a 32 player server..every server is reporting back full.
Is pend 40 minutes trying to find a server that might be in the US that I ping well to..
sigh..
I also hit "Join".. get the connecting animation, then nada.

Batman:
In the beta i said that the recoil was godawful. If I am standing still, and fire 3 rounds, in burst...my spread pattern at 30 feet shouldn't be so large that I miss my target with bullets #2 and #3.

I am using assault rifles I have to fire as if they were sniper rifles

Things I'd still love to see resolved:

The terrible browser interface
The over the top recoil
The fact that I can pour 15 bullets into a guy who is running at me, wielding a knife.. and he kills me.
The inconsistency of the HUD, and yes, i get the hardcore vs normal issue. (some things are just missing..or it's a server side deal?)

But good lord is this game beautiful..and has a ton of potential.

/and as soon as I can connect to the EA server again.. i shall be playing. haha
