News Comments > Elemental: War of Magic Interview
5. Re: Elemental: War of Magic Interview Aug 18, 2010, 23:41 Frijoles
 
The battles are interesting, but I'm mainly having fun (in the current beta) building my cities. After a certain point, I go crazy and take over my neighbors' cities. The tactical battles are meh, but I think that's partially because we're a few versions behind the release. The one we have isn't very balanced and basically you can just cast spells to win. The screenshots show quite a few changes coming, so I'm looking forward to it.

I've said in other posts about Elemental that I enjoy it a lot. I've easily put 20 - 30 hours in to the game already and look forward to restarting on Monday (early release).

Perhaps an MMORTS. That'd be kinda cool if they pulled it off right. Persistent RTS world.

I'm in the beta since beta 3. It's great. I finally put it down when sc2 came out. I'm just waiting now for the final game so I don't have to keep restarting. I've already got my money's worth out of it and it's not even out yet.

The QL community has been asking for this for a while now, mainly to start our own server.

I hope they don't use GfWL. Talk about a pain in the fucking ass. Batman:AA ran fine; all my issues were related with GfWL and making it work/update.

I only care about one thing, is it fun. And yes, it is. I'm very much enjoying it and will be forking over the money for the expansion.

I was asking a question. If pricing was announced to be $60 for each of the 3 parts of this game, would that be ok? Would anyone take issue with this game if that were the end result?

Depends on how good SC2 episode 1 is. If I can get 15+ hours of enjoyment out of it, yeah, I'll buy the next at $60. If it turns out to be crap, then no I won't. I've already got that 15 hours in the beta, so I'm not too worried.

Amazon still shows mine as arriving tomorrow. My first foray in to "release day shipping", or whatever it is. If it doesn't make it tomorrow I'll be pissed.

I paid for the feed last year. I'll probably do it again this year. I like seeing the behind-the-scenes stuff (the panels and such). Plus two years ago they announced Diablo 3 (I think it was at BlizzCon). Last year was all about Cata. What's this year going to be?

Plus they have goodie bags (codes). The $40 last year was worth it.

Part of the allure of the show was the practically hopeless situation the human fleet was in compared to the near infinite resources available to the Cylons.

The Cylons split in to two groups towards the end of the show. I don't know how the game is handling them, but it's possible they're the latter group that had a broken ship and little else. Also, weren't there only 13 human looking Cylons? I should probably read up on this game since I'm curious how they're going to make it work.

Can't compare it since I can't remember AoW2 very well (if I played it). But Elemental is fucking fun, even for a buggy beta. I'm actually waiting for the 3B beta (last one before launch) to finish updating so I can play again.

I liked it. I'll be dropping $60, mainly for singleplayer campaign and skirmishes. Multiplayer can suck it unless it's against friends.

This sounds RPG-ish. Did the current devs even play SC1?

For the love of the Pharaoh, PLEASE UPDATE THE UI. Spend a few minutes coding some god damn proper movement controls. You don't even have to think about it, just copy WoW's control scheme. Everyone else does.

ATITD1 was awesome. I spent many hours collecting grass for the damn camel. After playing other MMOs, however, I can't return because I spend most of my time swearing at the interface.
