This game will be awesome. I've been in the closed beta test for this game for the last 9 month and have seen how it progressed.
This transition explains why the development of the game slowed down in the last 2-3months.

I have no idea about this game, but why did they hand it to GPG if it was developing so well?
prolly financial problems.

Either you don't know wtf you are talking about or you failed English reading comprehension 101.
Age of Empires Online is not MMORPG.
None of Age of Empires were ever RPG.

I tried to get back into it by playing a couple games online last night, but it's just too fast. Everything literally looks like it is moving in super speed, like watching a movie in fast forward. This might be great for the 400 apm pros, but for some of the more casual players it takes away a lot of the enjoyment. If anything, at least ask players what game speed they want to play on.
i'm kinda in the same boat as you. whenever i play rts i always get rolled over.
i like to play until i research everything to the max and then build the biggest units and destroy the opponent.
while i'm happily researching 3rd tier units i suddenly get flooded by opponents tier 1 and 2 units and destroyed.
RTS multi games are just not for me..

Mytheon not Mythos. Got me all excited there. I was a BEta tester for the original Mythos. Lots of fun and potential there.
I get confused by those two Myth* games too. Heheh! Is this one any good?
isn't this 'once-canceled' Gods & Heroes game? or is it yet another game to get confused with

This is terrible news for PC gaming, because of the impression it leaves.

I'd say it's terrible news for Crytek and/or EA more than PC gamers. Everybody knows that Crysis 2 was gonna get pirated anyway. The absence of this leak wouldn't have changed that. However, what this leak suggests is that either Crytek or EA have poor security and this hurts their reputation. The leak most likely occurred within Crytek, given the included DRM master keys and editor. EA's impression of them has become far less favorable.
actually i think this leak happened by an external beta tester..
i highly doubt it's an inside job.
and if it was a result of a hack then i'd imagine we also get source code for the game.

I don't know about the rest of you, but $5 for 5 hours is a total rip-off.

$5 for 3 days is more appropriate.
you want 72 hours of GAMEPLAY for $5?
keep dreaming.
only like 1% of all games on the market right now are that long.

I think this is a horrible idea.
You are paying money to play a fucking demo!
This will give a precedent to dev to stop making proper demos and force everybody pay money for this.
If devs will adopt this and stop releasing demos then people will have even more reason to pirate since they'll have no other choice to try a game.

i'm in the closed beta and i played during their Dec28 stress test...
I don't know wtf they've been doing all this time but the game hasn't progressed since the last time i played that beta under flagship studios.
all they changed was translate it into korean.
and now this korean-to-english translation is just horrendous. i felt more hassle trying to read quest instructions than play the typical korean-grindfest mmorpg.

This story is about adblock (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom) is one of the clones. It is still good, but don't confuse it with the 'original' one by Wladimir Palant (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cfhdojbkjhnklbpkdaibdccddilifddb)

Even a 100k subs for 10 years won't earn you your money back and that just isn't going to happen. SWTOR will be the last major failure for a long time (Rift Planes of Telara only marginally less so as a 50 million dollar failure).
dc universe online will be a rather average game and i suspect will ultimately fail as $/month game. as a micro-transaction type game it will have a decent following.
Cutter wrote on Dec 8, 2010, 17:14:
So far it looks like GW2 is the only thing on track to really innovate the genre, if not it'll fail too. The whole genre needs a reboot. It's gone way too far off track. It was us old school PnP/MUDders who created this damn genre so I know what I speak.
vindicus is an innovative game.

I say enough with the elitist (and completely false) attitude that WoW isn't a fantastic product; like it or not it is. It's genuinely one of the greatest games ever created, even if you don't bother with it.

here we go with the dumbshits that think their personal opinions are objective facts

wouldnt that be nice
yes, space captain, your dumbshit opinion is indeed an objective fact

For all of you who think you need millions of subscribers to be successful...

Just remember.
Everquest at it's peak only had 900,000 subscribers, and it was considered successful, and UO didn't even come close to that. No MMO will ever duplicate what WoW has done, and I don't expect any to.

If an MMO reaches a couple hundred thousand subscribers and they do better than break even it's considered a success.
if you think WoW is the only big game, look at http://users.telenet.be/mmodata/Charts/PCU-1.png

WoW got to 10million users not because of marketing but because of the quality of the product.

Hardly. WoW got big because it was accessible to non-gamers, was Mac/PC out of the box, would run on any hardware due to crap graphics, and became extremely trendy.

There's nothing special about WoW beyond it's adoption by the drooling masses who don't actually play games.
you are very wrong.
almost no MMO is on par in quality to WoW. it's accessible, it runs on any hardware, it's on mac and pc. all these things contribute to the quality of a product.
WoW has great quests, gameplay mechanics, story, etc etc etc. you should drop your idiotic elitist attitude and see the game for what it is. just becuase a game is pretty or can run on every possible platform doesn't make it a good game. there's so much more to it.
