News Comments > Guild Wars Event Commences
15. Re: No subject Dec 5, 2004, 00:42 Com
The biggest thing GW has going against it is the misplaced expectations of players who already have ingrained in their heads what an mmorpg is "supposed to be". You can see examples of that here (ie thwart's post, no offense intended). Here WoW has the edge because it gives players what they expect, whereas Guild Wars is not easy to figure out and currently there is not enough in-game guidence.

As far as balance, I think it's pretty damn great. But that's not easy to figure out until you get a good group, and there is a shortage of competitive missions. For instance, it would be awesome to have a 4on4 where you can pick teams. Or dueling. Or two on two. 4on4 random or 8on8 with people you probably don't know is chaotic and favors everyone's favorite warrior/monks. BUT, I've been on teams of four where we didn't have a single warrior, and routinely kept decimating teams consisting of 3 warrior/monks and a monk.

Gimpz0r, are you out on a mission or something? I don't think it's a secret anymore that game reviews are generally corrupt/biased/shallow, and those who don't know that will learn quickly after buying a crappy game based on them. To me, all the throngs of inevitably glowing praise reviews of WoW that are about to hit any day now will be just as much of a lie as these EQ2 reviews are to you.

And I bought it when *I* wanted to. When I get home from work today, I'll play it...which is when *I* want to. I don't even see your point, other than to simply harrass.

I think his point is that you were MADE to want it BECAUSE you are corporate-whipped. I don't think that's such a baseless argument personally, I think it's fairly interesting and is not really flaming/trolling.

I don't know...what's it like never having kissed a girl? I'm going to assume since you spend your extra time trolling instead of asking for or giving useful information, that you don't actually have a woman (or man) to go home to.

Now THATS trolling.

Probably because A) the yearly UT updates fragments the total number of players, and from the smaller pool of UT2K4 players B) all the mods fragment the community even more.

I don't see how that's true considering that there are NO players left in ut2003. UT99 had many mods as well yet at its peak there were 7-8k players on every night. In fact, if you take away onslaught, there are fewer players in ut2004 than in ut99.

And UT99 didn't have nearly the same exposure that ut2k* games did. Simply put, it's just not that great of a game.

Thankfully there is no need to make a Doom3 mod for the sight impaired!

I agree, I own a $600 LCD and it's simply inferior to my $200 CRT when it comes to twitch games. I know there are some uber LCDs out there, but I don't consider LCD's in general 'ready for gaming' when you need to spend >$1000 to get one that is.

News Comments > Civilization IV Dawning?
8. re: Oct 21, 2004, 11:13 Com
I think the Civ series has the most potential out of any game out there. I'm not talking about the tile, turn based aspect of the game. I'm talking about the IDEA behind the titles. The idea that you are placed at the dawn of humanity and you bring up a civilization from rocks and sticks to modern age. The original game HAD to be a graphically simple, very high level view game. Imagine if, with graphics that would make the high end video cards two years from now sweat, you could zoom in to, and play from the street view of one of your living, breathing cities. Watch your civilization grow through the ages in front of your eyes.

I don't know if it's possible, considering the development cost it would involve. Maybe it would work better in a game like europe universalis.

The reviewer of this game is highly respected, and if you look at his history at gamespy you'll see he's not one who's afraid to tell it like it is - whether it's a high score for a low profile game or a low score for an overhyped game.
