News Comments > Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta Applications
36. Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta Applications Sep 29, 2009, 13:57 Umbragen
 
Generally, people don't abandon MMO's because of server problems or connection problems. The reasons they dump them has to do with actual gameplay or at least in-game issues. I suppose it could be possible to have a game so inaccessible that it would cause them to fail, but that's never been the case. (I can't speak to Asian MMO's. I wouldn't play them, even for free.)

...it will probably get released too late to make an impact now.


On the contrary, Funcom will still find a way to release too early. It's what they do.

It really is a shame, if Funcom had managed to deliver a fully realized game when Age of Conan launched, they would now be riding high or at least weathering the economic downturn intact. The same could be said of Warhammer - Both games commanded the attention of the community, they had great pre-sale numbers and both dropped the ball. Nay, they didn't drop it, they spiked the damn thing. And the real tragedy is, Funcom knew better -> Anarchy Online.

By all means get your politics out there, wear it on your sleeve. It makes it easy to identify where NOT to spend my money.

I'd be willing to give it a shot, but after 10 years I don't remember my account name. I can't access email from that long ago. I have no way to get my account back. I had a fine stable of Dreads and I'm not interested in starting a no-skill noob.

Took awhile to find, but I still have my original key code. They should offer a way to input that data, cross-referenced to my name/address or some other identifying information.

Looks like the Fallout3: Game of the Year Edition is imminent, gotta clear out that old inventory.

Considering what the company is known for, this is a remarkable 'first effort' at making a real game.

The tessellation is impressive. The realistic diffraction patterns are cool but I don't know how good shadows really need to be.

I've been wrong about Warhammer from the beginning - I didn't think EA would release it, even after spending the money to a acquire Mythic. When EA bought Bioware and its 'super secret' MMO, I was sure Warhammer's cancellation would soon follow. I swore I'd never bother playing the game, but I had some time to kill and ended up playing a few hours of the free trial. In that brief time (maybe too brief?) I didn't do one thing that I hadn't done a thousand times before - I should have been right about Warhammer, from the beginning.

So Atari is out? I shouldn't be surprised, especially if they are the reason the console version of the first Witcher was canceled. I don't know why Infogrames insists on pissing people off, the winner of the Prick Publisher of the Decade has already been claimed.

it's no one's dream project to complete the Half-Life 2 saga. As much as I hate to leave a story unfinished, increasingly, that's what it's looking like. The Borealis storyline was looking kinda weak anyway.

How did this guy become the head of the biggest gaming publisher in the world?

Activison bought Blizzard. (OK, Activison 'mated' with Blizzard)

I pretty much ignore EA anymore. I guess that's why I had no idea what this article was referencing. Now that I do know, all I can say is - Damn those assholes at Bioware, fucking sell-outs.

The notion of 'open' beta certainly has lost its meaning. I downloaded the Aion client not realizing that keys were limited. That'll teach me - wasting 10 gigs of bandwidth on an NCSoft game.

I don't know that it's possible to earn enough favor playing the free content to unlock the more interesting aspects of the game. Even if you spend a few bucks on store points it's a hard sell. I agree with the poster above, if you want to play this game get a subscription. If you're going to end up buying the content through the store it will cost you far more. On the other hand, for the 'casual' gamer, it's not a terrible way to piss-away a few hours for free.

Let me guess - next to the brilliance that is the Mac OS, everything looks darker?

You can always tell when you strike a nerve with a wing-nut, they have an almost preprogrammed response - lies, laced with invective. It's hard to believe they completely controlled the government just a few short years ago; blame the gullible.
