How can you say this is a WoW clone?!

It's from a new developer, it's more FPS than RPG, and it's got vehicles with guns. This sounds more entertaining than riding through a landscape with no ability to defend yourself on a ground mount... It was pretty boring riding place to place. Plus you'll be able to (somehow) customize the vehicles. Let's see you ram into people and gib them with your raptor or horse mount. Psshaw!

Then again, there are some things about WoW that it could "fix", like raids... Everything's scaled to how many people are in the game (I imagine most people will play by themselves due to the way loot and character saving is handled, though).

Think of it as an FPS with a refreshing art style and a little extra motive to go out there and kill more bad guys. There aren't many FPS' that reward you with multiple playthroughs anymore.

I personally don't like the skill trees, but I can't imagine the mods that will come out for this game. Anything even remotely close to how complex Diablo 2 got (in terms of mods) would be amazing. I personally want to see a third person mod

EA's just like that, trying to cash in on TF2's unique graphics I imagine.

Though Heroes looks more like legos compared to TF2.

Interface was too clunky, website was painful (especially just getting into the game...), and it was pretty damned rough figuring out the game with higher-level players around.

Also one of the 2 million that played once and quit. I really, really do not like this game.

I'm sure the demo will be available elsewhere once someone "shares" it.

Though this is also a stupid move on Valve's part, but I'm sure you guys will be able to play it regardless of having to preorder it, in short order after it's released...

And this is exactly why Diablo 3 will kill WoW (and why Blizzard is buying insurance with Hydra).

I remember all-night MC runs/clears, and since I often ended up as MT, if I wanted to leave I ended up having 39 people hate me for it. Also cost me a Thunderfury just because I was sick of running MC for 8 hours a day, and then one day I log in to run my cousin through Gnomer and pass on MC and they kick me from the guild

Ofcourse that was my first raiding guild, and I realize now it was a hardcore raiding guild (albeit not the best, but once we got into BWL we cleared it in two nights).

I want more 5 man or solo content myself. I would be SO HAPPY to have 5 man versions of the raids with comparable gear. I HATE 25 mans, and I'm regretful even going into 10 mans.

And yet if they deliver more, but crappy, content....

Sounds like they're screwed both ways eh?

Also how is Aion? I haven't tried it, but it looks neat.

Coincidentally with the IG, apparently there are imperial guard units in the upcoming "The Last Stand" DLC, that attack you as part of the waves... I thought that sounded like a hint

I also agree, Tau would be awesome (with this engine, I want to see them and their badassery technology)

Also the DC world domination game type would have been nice, but the campaign is somewhat similar so maybe we'll see all of the races just plain get a campaign? (hopefully with more expanded loot and missions)

There is an Orc campaign in progress, it was datamined from the last major patch I believe. I don't remember any specifics, but it focused on a main hero and was going to be similar to the SM campaign.

I think it'll be DLC, not an expansion (possibly released before or alongside this new expansion?

This was a few months ago though. No word on other races' campaigns.

Are they FINALLY gonna fix the goddamned rivet city lockups?! my brother's been stuck in the story line up to that point...and has done everything else... much less the lack of DLC to keep him busy since he can't progress.

Yeah I dunno, I ALWAYS played with no more than 10 or 12 players at any time when I first got COD4 for PC. I also hosted my own games sometimes (was a real bitch to get working too...), but it was fun. COD4 was so much better with 6-10 players max in a game... Just so much more enjoyable. Then you see 30 player Shipment games...ugh... more like helicopter facepillaging

Bots would be nice... or atleast more support for them...

@Sempai -- This is likely using a modified CoD4/5 engine. It's far too similar to pass off for something else... Someone commented on another site that it's going to cost $60 because that's what Activision/Blizzard's CEO could milk it for, though he would charge more if he could.

Everyone's gonna buy it regardless, because it's CoD: MW2

As for the 30FPS etc this is all on the 360 (all of the videos), that's why, and it's probably locked at 30 frames.

Yeah, I like being 50-70 years older than I really am... Woot!

Pretty nice, I especially like Highrise and Afghan... very nice maps. Sexy guns too. The guy on Highrise seems both lucky and good.

Wow, how'd you get a refund on steam?

And yes, this game sucks. Hate it. Waste of money putting it on the shelves

I'm curious too, but the filesize is pretty similar... Maybe the tutorial's lengthier? Or maybe they're just having hindsight and covering the fact that it was leaked, and that the "official" one is better... *cough*

16. Re: Steam Sep 15, 2009, 18:02 Rhett
 
Yes, I'm sorry that I did pirate a game from one of my favorite devs, but I simply would not buy it again. The DLC also wasn't worth it for me. But I can't afford to upgrade my computer, and after seeing it on the 360 (and with NO PC DEMO) it was impossible to tell if 'Ol Reliable (compy) could even chug it. And it did.

It is also possibly a good excuse as to why some ports turn out so badly, since the devs could put in the least amount of effort, they'd see it as "OK" since it'd probably mostly pirated anyway, but they just don't care as much since it's selling well and was released first on consoles.

It's too bad you guys are having so many issues though I haven't noticed any, besides the crappy zonealarm bit, which I still don't understand.

Though, if you have a mid-range computer (for today), the PC version is so much better than the console versions. I really HATE RFG's MP on consoles. You get killed so often without even knowing where anyone is, cause there's so much going on (destruction, gunfire across the map, more destruction, and idiots rambling through the mics). /end rant

I'm curious though, how many people think it's morally OK to pirate, say, this game, after legally purchasing the console version (for more, with less content, no less) and without a demo? Just curious... or it could spark another one of those pirate debates

Yes, you're supposed to lose the second level though someone in the other thread did indeed beat it... Just requires you to be very quick on destroying the ogre dens and anything near you, as well as establishing trade routes.

Cheers
