News Comments > Cryptic's Neverwinter Delayed, Now a F2P MMOG
2. Re: Cryptic's Neverwinter Delayed, Now a F2P MMOG Oct 6, 2011, 11:27 Downer28
 
Not really interested in this simply because it's being developed by Cryptic. I also get the feeling they're trying to appeal to a more casual audience, so it'll probably be dumbed down D&D if anything.

This is great news! I just wish they'd give us random maps/campaigns so I can keep playing after I'm done with the story mode.

I went to check their website to see what the game was about, saw "icash" and immediately wasn't interested anymore. Huh.

The only thing saving this game is the heavy coating of Star Wars paint on the skeleton of what is essentially yet another World of Warcraft clone.

"and not the all-knowing, top-down commander."

Psst...that's kind of what made X-COM special.

News Comments > Netflix Renames DVD Rental Service, Adds Video Games

I think this was a premature move on Netflix's part, especially when a large majority of their titles still aren't on their streaming service yet and presumably won't be for at least a few more years.

It's a First-Person shooter because that's the only way they'd sell enough to make EA happy.

Yeah, the combat system is actually pretty fun and the theme is quite good and unique, but not really worth paying the full $15 a month for.

No, Bethesda, you do not own the word "scrolls". Just stop... Fucking lawyers...

Exactly my reaction.

Either I'm misreading the community, or he is.

I got burned out and left WoW, after 3 years of leading a raiding guild, because frankly the content never slowed down, and made the game a perpetual treadmill.

There is no time to enjoy the content, because they barely give regular guilds a chance to do it before they start nerfing the difficulty and pushing a new raid out. I got severe burn out, and left. There were times in WotLK where we wouldn't even wear epic gear for a month before we were replacing it with newer stuff. There is no valley, just an unending uphill climb.

Exactly on point IMHO. Blizzard's focus is purely on the last level of content and continuously pushing it as far as it can go before boosting the level cap another 5 levels.

There is NOTHING to leveling up a character other than getting to 85 because you level so fast none of it matters. Dungeons, raids, PVP, reputation, items, crafting, etc. is all pointless until you hit the level cap.

So, the majority of the content that Blizzard has made for World of Warcraft is worthless because they've elected to concentrate exclusively on endgame content.

There is nothing fulfilling or epic about what originally made World of Warcraft great because they've turned it into treadmill without any time to rest and feel a sense of achievement.

And now they think that putting more things on the treadmill is going to have people crawling back for more? Yeah right.

Of all the mmo's on the horizon, GW2 is really the only one that promises any innovation whatsoever.

As a 5 year wow vet (cancelled sub just before firelands), its depressing to see every new mmo copy wow so blatantly. GW2 is the only one that has genuinely intrigued me, so i'm looking forward to it with quiet optimism =)

Hmmm... GW2's dynamic events are just Warhammer's Public quests, that can... go backwards...

Where is the innovation?

-Alamar

Uh, no they're not. They are far more elaborate and have a real impact on the surroundings. The following article explains in great detail the dynamic event system in GW2: http://www.badcartridge.com/index.php?/topic/24366-guild-wars-2-whats-your-story/

I'm glad they're taking their time and not rushing it like so many other companies do. Really hoping and expecting that Guild Wars 2 will change MMOs (for the better) going forward.

Wait, I thought they were done with the Avernum series? Or is this just a remake? In any case, Avernum in the Avadon format sounds awesome.

Wow, how did they sell enough copies to warrant an expansion? Will this make it not suck now?

Awesome. Xbox.com is the obvious place I would go to play all my favorite PC games. Thanks Microsoft!

I asked last month in a different topic and even most of the people who liked Rift agreed it was a one month wonder unfortunately.

Yeah, but it was a good experience as opposed to other MMOs as of late. I think the many that left after the free month, including me, did so because they've grown tired of playing what is essentially the same gameplay as WoW for so long. And honestly, Rift had a very unappealing, boring theme/lore compared to WoW.

Yeah, but they acquired the EA catalog, so I'm sure DK2 will come eventually. I know they already have titles lined up like Alpha Centauri.

3. Re: Dungeons Sequel Announced Jun 3, 2011, 18:41 Downer28
 
Yeah, it wasn't a great game and certainly didn't live up to the hype of it being "in the vein of Dungeon Keeper" as they advertised it as.

It doesn't sound like the sequel is going to deviate much from the original game either, so I'd advise people to just purchase the classic Dungeon Keeper games from Good Old Games since they just acquired the series (yay!).
