Wait a second... Reach came out over six months ago and they're only NOW getting to releasing a demo? LOL Nice timing on that one, Microsoft.

And please someone explain to me how Diablo 3 is really any different?

I like how your post was agreeing upon a common issue which WyldKat brought up and then you decided to get all defensive and rude after this portion.

For a comparison, Diablo 3 will allow you to be either a male or female character of each class as opposed to the 'locked down' characters which we were given in Diablo 1 and 2.

This. Torchlight 2 and Diablo 3 offer a lot more in terms of personalization options and creating your own character. Classes aren't locked down so that only females can play Demon Hunters or only males can play Barbarians. Plus both games offer customization in terms of appearance as well as specialization.

They are true action RPGs, this is basically a 3D Golden Axe that takes place in the D&D universe. Nothing wrong with that but when Atari bills the game as an RPG, especially a classic western RPG, they better bring the staples of the genre. Note the press release calling the game an "action-packed RPG", not an action RPG or even just an action game which would be much more appropriate. By that definition Dragon Age 2 and the Mass Effect series are action-packed, as well as many other RPGs which offer far more depth.

And yeah, for $15 or $50 I can still be critical of a game and decide to support it with my money or not. Just because a game is cheap doesn't mean it has to be excused for its mediocrity.

I have mixed feelings.

The idea of an open world zombie game with crafting, survival, and CoOp to it sounds really cool. The melee also looks fantastic.

However after watching the video some crucial areas come to mind. The animation for the player doesn't match the quality of the animations for the zombies, it looks cheesy and yeah like others have said, Jurassic Park: Trespasser. The truck bugs me... it doesn't match the art quality of the other "crashed" vehicles, also is this going to be the only drivable vehicle? If it is will it be craftable to improve it into a zombie killing machine? The floaty damage numbers and names over everything also put me off. What's the point of building an immersive virtual world if you take people out of it by that? I hate it when MMOs do it and FPS games should never do it. Also the scope of the project calls a lot of doubt into question.

I hope they have time to improve the problem areas. I think the zombie genre will be better for this game doing well.

I'd still like a Left4Dead sequel that incorporated building elements ala Garry's Mod.

Looked interesting for the CoOp aspect until I saw that you can't change class/race/sex at all but are stuck with four preset characters. Bleh. I'll wait for Torchlight 2 or Diablo 3.

Hilarious. Let's see how Blizz responds to this one. I'm guessing it's their usual "who cares? We're larger than god" response.

I really wish they would release that zombie DLC as a standalone game (if the gameplay is good that is...)

I could give frak all about the CoD franchise but it would be awesome playing as Buffy in a George Romero zombie romp. <3

That looks.... amazingly cool.

They won me over with the Thief being able to be a sword and pistol wielding swashbuckler type, but this put me over the edge.

It's awesome they're fully embracing the steampunk in their game, maybe we'll even get to see groups piloting ships/airships in the future?

I hope the engineers can wear goggles.

Seems like this should be included in the normal subscription costs to KEEP players. Many people have friends that play on other servers and would like to join them without rerolling. It's why a lot of newer MMOs do away with segregated servers in favor of instanced zones. This sort of thing also casts huge doubts on how they will milk Diablo 3 for more money.

Not surprising with all the hotfixes driving away people to other games, especially Rift.

WoW is in cruise control mode right now, anyone expecting it to get drastically better content or gameplay is living on a cloud.

Ubisoft movies will require you to maintain a constant internet connection at all times, even in the theater, or playback will cease.

WTF_Man beat me to it.

I have a lifetime subscription to this, and haven't touched it in 8 months. I think I might have to check it out again. I kind of forgot about it until you mentioned it :P.

Patch time...

To be honest if it wasn't for the weekly episodes, player made missions (some of which rival Cryptics content), and continual and upcoming additions I wouldn't have resubbed or be considering a lifetime sub. There's a player mission that takes you to Bajor, it's very story driven but I highly recommend it. I also recommend the Romulan/Reman featured episode series, it's really engrossing and each mission in it is designed really well.

The more I hear about TOR, the less I'm inclined to buy. To be truthful, not having full control over your ship, having it fly on rails was pretty much the nail in the coffin for me.

I've actually been having a ton of fun with STO after all the changes they've made. Most of that is because of the weekly episodes and the Foundry, which lets people create missions for others to play. There's been some fantastic story driven player-made episodes I've played. Cryptic's other game, Neverwinter, will have a similar toolset, where people can make their own adventures and play them with friends or share with strangers.

I think that's really something special about these games. Sure there's still premium content rolling out by the creators but you have the ability to make your own as well, or just play through content others have made and totally bypass all the grind in an MMO. It pretty much takes a "theme park" MMO and totally throws it into the "sandbox" territory. User generated content could very well be the future of MMOs, now that the static themepark model is starting to get old to a large percentage of MMO fans.

I'm sure the story arcs and voice acting will be great in TOR and having a story for each class will allow for some replayability, however once you max all the classes out what then? At this point it sounds like a typical end-game PVE and/or PVP loot grind. I have doubts they'll be able to keep up with content demands and keep the quality up considering how much work it takes to fully VO multi-branching quests.

I'm happy for Bioware to prove me wrong but it seems like this game is missing the "massively" bit that would warrant a subscription.

an underground world of illicit, high-stakes racing

Can someone just make a damn remake of Street Rod?

Come on!

And dont mess it up please!

There was this game called "Street Legal" that incorporated actual engine and body building. Game was awful but the idea of putting different parts together to build a nice motor was fun.

I played Street Legal. It was "awful" in the sense that they really didn't have the money for a better graphics engine and it had many bugs though they were ironed out later on. However the damage system and building a car part by part was something that I found really awesome. You could take out the extra seats, bumpers, lights, even glass to make the car weigh less. With a script edit you could even swap engines. Hitting a curb in a race could shear off your oilpan causing the engine to sieze up, or you could even have a really bad wreck and leave your car a twisted heap of metal. For all of its faults, I really loved the concept of buying a junked out used car, fixing it up, and racing it where crashing had real consequences, often forcing you to rebuild the car.

And yeah, a remake of Street Rod (with classic cars ONLY PLEASE) would be awesome, or maybe just bringing back MCO...

Err... don't get me wrong... I love Warband but... not much of a sequel when most of the art assets, music, and everything else is carried over, is it? So they added guns and bombs and a new MP mode... okay. There have been several mods for M&B that also added guns, mods which actually have reloading animations for NPCs when they reload their firearms, as opposed to showing them just standing there like idiots as this video shows.

Bit disappointing, Paradox. :\
