What's the point exactly? You bet that you are going to kill the enemies? As opposed to them killing you and you loading and trying again? Sounds like a safe bet.

Hey! I bet I'm going to kill all those guys over there!
>Mission objective recieved: Kill all those guys.
Alright! I beat the mission AND won the bet!

Maybe I'm just not understanding something here...

Man, with all that speculation as to which Monolith franchise was being continued, I thought they had already announced it was going to be a sequel!
Guess not.

Sounds good, especially if it makes good on the horror element. I'm a fan of action/horror when done right (Undying, Blood...).

MMORPG = Bad

In many respects, this is *not* an MMORPG... it functions much more like Diablo, but with some features that blur the lines a bit.

That was sort of futuristic looking.
In a 70s sci-fi movie sort of way...

take a real close look at the lockers looks like crab legs or something coming out from the back corner of them
Looks a lot like the torn up stone on the wall just to the right of the same lockers.
Also, you can see it neatly terminates at the corner, also suggesting it is mearly a texture or, perhaps, decal.

Oh, and if it is Blood 3, I really hope they don't go with the crappy modern setting of Blood 2. The haunted houses and old-timey locomotives of Blood 1 make for a much more interesting local.

Caleb should be packing a sawed off stagecoach shotgun, not an MP5...

Planescape (not Planetscape) is a "-"?!?

What other game has given you the option to spontaneously rip out your own eyeball and jam one that had been sitting in a jar of brine for years in the socket, just because someone told you it used to belong to an old incarnation of yourself?

Internet speed has not advanced enough to allow high percision "action" MMOGs with large numbers of players (as in The Specialists). How I await that day =D

Yeah but all those mmorpgs also have non instanced areas besides cities.

So the key distinction is having at least one non-town uninstanced area? Having over half your areas be uninstanced? As I said, the line is hard to draw as instanced zones are becoming more and more popular.

actually they prove my point, they dont acually say it's not a mmorpg just that they designed it without frustrating isuues like spawn camping, and actual interation besides with a group apparently.

They don't say it's not an MMORPG, because, I think, it blurs the lines between MMOG and simple online play. I think the key sentance in the FAQ is :
Guild Wars provides an environment where you can meet new people and make friends in public gaming areas, but enjoy all the excitement of battle that comes from team-based combat in private virtual worlds.
They are essentially saying that there are public areas for meeting people/etc and private areas for battle/etc. Again, it doesn't feel like they are trying to decieve anyone, especially since they do not claim to be a traditional MMORPG.

With the guild vs guild mechanic, guild castles and a persistant "market" (the town), I'll be interested to see if this becomes something more than Diablo. As it is, it certainly straddles the line in more than a few places.

Also- I certainly don't think it is their intention to decieve anyone. They never refer to the game as an MMORPG, and you can read their FAQ entry on "Is Guild Wars an MMORPG?" here:

So...basicly it's more like diablo then a mmorpg...

Essentially, yes (with the exception of persistant towns).
However, the question of what constitutes an MMOG is beginning to manifest in "experiments" like these. Many MMOGs today use instanced dungeons and some are planning instanced zones. Where do you draw the line? I honestly don't know.

To me, if the game is fun, it's fun. I'll have to see how this system works out before I pass judgement.

Well... I like it.
Any particular changes you don't like? Or it it just a knee-jerk reaction against Steam?
