That GW2 preview is god awful! That preview scrapes about 1/90th of what the game has to offer, hell.. just the description of the classes is terrible and in no way represents the game.. wow, that is horrid across the board, not to mention shallow as hell.
Boo that website!

Quite a damn fun game across the board! I love the WvWvW PvP, the SPvP and all the little things done right in both of those areas.. hell, just having the whole learning zone for PvP is awesome!
I didn't much like the Sylvari starting area (found it confusing a bit), but I LOVED the Asura starting zone, so awesome.

GW2 might be the only MMO/RPG/class-based anything where I take all 8 classes to max level.. I just enjoy the classes and zones that much. The content, all the nooks and crannies to explore (that's another thing- this is the first game I've played where I WANT to explore everything and not just race to the end).. so much love for this game

I am a veteran MMO player, and between GW2 and PS2.. my gaming is set for a LONG while.. happy boy over here!

I can't believe how many of you fuckers are in the technical test atm. You realize of course I'm going to shoot you all in the face once I'm in.

If I WAS in it.. could I talk about it now that it's over? Or could I just make stuff up here and say it's all made up and then talk away?None of you would care..right?

From what I'm hearing..ahem...
there are a lot of clipping/rendering problems and a good amount of people that couldn't even play the game due to a ntdll.dll issue that hosed up stuff with AV clients.

Otherwise, I heard it's very fun.. ahem.

Interplay all but dead, taking down Black Isle Studios with it.

id Software sells to Zenimax/Bethesda and releases a console game with a sloppy PC port.

Epic totally whored out to the dude-bro console crowd on Xbox Live.

Bioware swallowed up by EA, now putting out nothing but watered down crap.

Blizzard merges with Activision and puts out Diablo 3: RMAH

I miss the late 90's. It's not hard to see why independent developers are where the good games are coming from.

Well said

My coworker, and avid gamer himself said the game is "meh" and he's only playing it off and on when he's bored and has nothing else to do. Like most, he's just killing time til GW2 comes out. To which he said "after playing the GW beta, and TSW, I can't enjoy TSW because of everything it lacks compared to a better MMO" -paraphrasing.

"This oneís been around for a while now. Iíve been awaiting it patiently too. Love that itís got Coop, but was bugged to no end that they choose to only have two players Coop vs. three players. To me that made no sense at all because there are three classes to play as. I even posted that on their forums, but got the typical answer of this is how it was designed. Why didnít they think of this while designing it in the first place is my question?"

Very good question, and I cannot believe that with 3 classes, this wasn't the absolute obvious way to go about things? I would assume that 3 classes would be the obvious standard.

Have we, as educated gamers (most of us veterans here span 1-2 decades of highly-knowledgeable online PC gaming experience) been wrong in the majority about what will happen to a dev house once they make "large change X"?

Everything all of us here predicted over the years, has sadly come true...and not for the betterment of the franchise/title/studio

Makes me wonder if the wallets backing these studios need to hear from us somehow.

News Comments > Star Wars: The Old Republic Free Trial

One thing I've never mentioned in my tiny rants about TOR.. the length of time it took to run place to place and the amount of backtracking I had to do on my main quest line. The game would make me physically run back from the furthest reaches of a map, to the main area.. then to my homeworld, to the furthest reaches of that place.. to talk to a guy to get 10 seconds worth of audio and then to be sent RIGHT GOD DAMN BACK from where I came.

That sort of stuff infuriates me

I can't put my finger on any one reason I quit that game as there are many.. but i know when I hit 50..and even with the opportunity to raid, I was just done with the game.

Not even trolling.. but a few weeks ago I posted this statement, and I'll say it again:
I never knew that game had even released. --that's how little I heard (possibly remembered) about it from all the gamers/game sites.

Waiting for GW2 to come out is killing me!! I plan on testing the Mesmer and Guardian in the last BWE..as I think the Mesmer is getting severely undervalued by the fanbase..and might be the least-played class, so I wanna see what the lack of attention is all about.

Looking forward to the other starting areas as well. So far in the BWE's I've been VERY pleased.

I have no idea what videos you are watching, but they must be shit. Because Iíve been playing the hell out of this game and its kicks ass. Coop is a ton of fun and the game looks great. The game feels like a mix of Vegas and Ghost Recon. I love the tactical element. The ghost stealth just kicks all kinds of ass.
I've watched several videos but this is as good an example as any. Terrible character models, especially the face. Appalling lip-sync. Wooden animations. And all the gameplay criticism stands, as it's just a third-person cover shooter. There is no "tactical element".

For anyone that is into this style of game it's great that Ubisoft is putting the effort in to make the PC version look better. But I'd still like to see them return to the original Rainbow Six, which really did have a lot of tactical elements. Games like Vegas 2 were playable but shallow.


What in the fresh hell??? They built in a wall hack grenade.. ON PURPOSE?!!?! Reminds me of the level of stupidity the devs for Section 8 had with a lock on feature for the guns..those morons implemented a god damn aimbot into the game.. I never thought I'd see something as stupid in an FPS again.. but here we are with a wall hack nade.

Besides, that looks very hand-holding'ish.. very humdrum... no thanks

Verno -- I agree with you and if I may expound further:

How many items are people paying for now, or will pay for in the future that would've normally been typical in-game rewards? If you dig deeper, you can even make the related statement that our old FPS maps and add-ons were not only free, but community generated (another argument).. but now we see dev houses charging for what was once free content, now sold in DLC packs.

I feel as the nickel and diming continues to grow, we're going to be paying for a lot more than we really should be, and that stuff will be things that aren't necessary, but make the game a lot more enjoyable.

I don't know where that eventual line will be drawn, but I am curious to see how far these people will attempt to drive it.

100% honest, I had no idea this game had come out. I am a gamer through and through, but this game made such little impact, I never knew it had actually come out.
