They did this same thing with Champions Online, and it was idiotic when they did it for that game, too.
It's the same thing that 90% of MMORPG publishers do nowadays.

I just hope it's coming out for the PC the same time as it comes out for consoles.

I wish they'd open the beta up now. I could really use an MMOG to waste some time since work has slowed to a crawl.
Considering they only really just started closed beta only a month ago, you really don't want it go to Open Beta.

Out of curiosity, how have you guys already played it if it's not in stores for another month?
It came out in Oz last week. It's not bad, but it's not a patch on DA:O which is what is currently absorbing my time. I think it compares favorably to Risen, which I enjoyed ... except for the Mario/Zelda ending. (ARGH!!)

The graphics got a bit of a overhaul. Have they gone upgraded to DX10 or something?

I agree. Although the Tank/DPS/Support paradigm is getting a little old.

Blue's News has more whiners than any other site I read.
As much as I'm inclined to agree with you, the Blues News crowd are rank amatuers in the whining stakes compared to No Mutants Allowed. Those guys have exceeded all expectations for whining and I firmly believe if it was made an Olymipic sport, they could easily take the Gold and set almost unbreakable world records. Even my grandfather can't beat them, and that's saying something.

That wasn't a whine, by the way ... just an observation.

Does anybody care about this on PC?

An Star Trek top-down arcade shooter? *pfft* That's almost as much a blasphemy as that Insurrection movie was.

This will never get off the ground. Interplay will greed-rape masthead in the same way they are trying to greed-rape Bethesda. More fool Masthead.

The one-eyed Bethesda haters of NMA must be rubbing their hands with glee. Trust them to be totally on top of a story when things are not going Bethesda's way.

I've canceled my Steam pre-order, along with my Dragon Age pre-order through them. And additional 8Gb download on top of the one I'd previously done would kill my monthly download limit (... well damn close to it anyway). Very unprofessional, Steam. Very unprofessional.

Not just AU but EVERYWHERE in the world (apart from North America) seemed to get less than an hours warning about the change in release date. Talk about major fuck up! Way to pull the rug out from under people.

... the bullshit precedence of the "business model he tried to set" in the gaming industry ...
If your talking about lifetime subscriptions, Turbine set the precedent WELL before Bill Roper and it worked well for them.

The game isn't bad.. but while the game gives you separate directions to go after the tutorial you still end up in Mill City with the same set of missions/quests.
One of the nice things about WoW was if I got bored of an area there were at least 3 other spots in the world I could continue leveling up with different content/scenery.
That's one of hte great things about WoW ... it doesn't feel linear. Even LOTRO (which is still my fave at the moment) felt a bit too linear. But given time and new areas released, that goes away for the most part. Then again, WoW did it right off the bat ....

... as did many other MMOs before it. Chalk it up to developers wanting and needing to get the game out the door as early as they can.

It's called inference. Based on the past history of games from these companies and developers we can infer that the game will suck balls.
That's your opinion. I've liked the games that Cryptic have produced, as have many other people. And considering that they have soaked up massive numbers of developers who are also mad keen trekkies, do you honestly think it's going to break canon that much? STO will do well in my opinion. It's going to appeal to a niche audience, but it will be profitable.

And as for all those people droning on about graphics, WoW proved you don't need good graphics to make a successful game.
