OP  6/20/11 8:44:17 PM#1

Today marks the culmination of a development cycle that's gone through more twists and turns than a Monte Carlo racetrack. Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising officially launches today and we have an exclusive interview write up between Heatwave's CEO Anthony Castoro and MMORPG.com Industry Relations Manager Garrett Fuller. It's a must read on this most-important of days. Leave us your thoughts in the comments below.

Anthony explained that Heatwave worked very hard to build and polish the game when they got the rights to it. Most of all they took into account player feedback and tested out the game to make sure the right polish was put in. Anthony explained how important the Beta phases for G&H were to help build the game that players wanted. Now all of the changes planned were set for launch, but the team has a clear plan for the upcoming months to expand content and game play.

Im going to be trying this game out now.  PvP isnt the hinge by which I choose a game and the rest seems like a refreahing change from the elf/dwarf thing.

Sounds like another game not ready for launch but being launched anyways. Crafting, auction house and PvP are still in the works. However it is still "a full MMO experience." I don't think so.

It is not ready but they release it.  No auction in a game that is going to have an auction (system) ? released >?? 


No crafting in a game that is going to have Crafting ? Released ?


No PvP in a game that is Going to have PVP ? Released ?  


PvP changes the entire dynamics of character strengths and weaknesses and has to be balanced and tested and balanced again, almost with out exception changing how players characters act in PVE ... and this game is released with NONE of this balance and testing done now ? 


HA ... released  game ?  This is Beta with months and months of major changes to how the game plays for every player class comming. 


Look at how barren the world looks ?  Unless these screenshots are from alpha stages of the game there is a total lack of world filler in place .. the tufts of grass looks as though the land was cut open like a sheet of paper and a flat green grass picture stuck in.  No rocks or stones or dead branches in wooded locations .. desert  pic has no mounds of sand or anything to make the FLAT plain barren land look like it might sorta Be Real. 


I am not dogging on the Graphics I am talking about the Lack of  Clutter in the world for a better way to describe it.  The city pic is empty ..  where are the crowds of people npc or player.  where is the stalls and the dogs and cats and children ?  everything looks so sterile and plain from all the pics I have seen ..


This type of world does not even draw me into it .. I have no desire to see more of it based on what is shown in these pics.  Really ?  This is your best foot forward ?  The players characters do not even appear to be standing ON The Ground ?  Looks like they are floating  just  above the ground ..


In a year maybe if your still around I will look at it again.  Maybe by then you will have gained some good world creaters that can bring life and breath into your sterile world  for players to enjoy.  The way it looks now?  Bland and  Blah blah blah  .. Meh .. (what ever those words mean) 


Shame on you for releasing a Beta on the populace ..  OF COURSE you can have more content comming out after Release .. that is expected and wanted by the players ... who does not want that ?? 


BUT to have the Baisics of your game NOT IN THE RELEASE ????  Shame shame .. PVP >. Crafting > Auction >  and more ?  as I have not played the game I am going by others who express the frustrations as well, in a NOT READY to release game. 


You talk about Loot in the interview and how important you feel that to be, in the fact that it Means something to the player and yet do not offer them  an auction House ?  In some Near Future patch it might get added ?  Your talking out the side of your mouth when you say stuff like that and the actions say No No No .


I am sorry this got so long winded.  I get on a rant when I see crap like this shoved down the throat of the player community and people think it is Ok and alright that it happens.


  Buy a new model car from some company and then after you buy it find out that the heater and winshield wipers are going to be added into the car in a later date .. to be announced .. or that the rear seat is only a cardboard cut out of what is comming in a later version of the vehicle ... Does it make sense ?  Of course not .. nobody would buy something that is NOT COMPLETE or with promises to be Right in some part of the future. 


Yet game company after Game company Crams that same type mentality down our throats release after Release.   


It has to stop ... my onlly real way to protest is with my money .. Your not getting any of it with a release like that .. and neither did FF14 ... maybe the player base is getting smarter afther all ?  The FF14  game has all but gone belly up, as Most players  found that game not enjoyable and it felt so unfinished, that no amount of promises would keep us.


 


Here I go again ... Goodbye this time for real.

Look to the stars to know HE is with us. HE hung them as markers, of times and of seasons.

Combat mechanics of game-play were fine with this title, but the game, content, and overall mmorpg deliverables within design are so shallow and lacking that I don't think that it's price-point/business model and subscription rate, which matches that of a AAA Mainstream mmorpg is at all worth it.

I'll check this out when it goes free to play... like it should be.  I can't believe they are trying to charge 50 bucks plus a sub fee for a game that is really already old.  This game looked less than impressive when it was supoposed to launch and dint a couple of years ago.  Now it's launching in to a market filled with free to play, tripple A titles and they think they can charge more for less.  How many companies have to go under tryiong to sell us a game we aren't weilling to pay for?

Wow.


I played the open beta from perpetual´s version for about one day, before they suddenly canceled the game. It was "ok", kind of "meh", not really bad.


Now, one could think the new company will want to make everything really right now, but well, as it seems, no...pvp in "early design stages" ? Seriously? :(


What did they do all the years?

lol they leave out all the MMO features that draw players in, don't even give me that bullshit about adding things in future patches. These guys won't be getting my money thats for sure.


I'm currently subbed to Rift, which is to be honest a pretty generic MMO with some dynamic conent, but it had so much more content than this at launch, and continues to add so much more every month, and is going to offer free services like server transfers for free. This is the company that deserves my money, not these money grabbers.


Anyway, this game looks like garbage.

I think it's safe to say that there's still plenty to be added to the game. Yet I am burning hours and hours away in this game like I never have before in any MMO. Once you get into the first few levels and go out exploring the world with your missions, you just can't stop playing for hours.


Never been happier to sign up for a subscription before.


For those who are saying they're surprised by people's attitudes like mine, go and look at how the team at Heatwave handle their players on the forums and how beta has been handled over the last number of months. It's based purely on the actions of them and listening to us players that I'm sticking with the game.

You're forgetting the fact SE actually is still adding tons to FF14, but you don't really care about anything that you get wrong, right?

Wish them luck. Tried the beta.


Not worth 40$ and a sub fee...at least not in its state..


They should start thinking of a F2P Model right away =/

Not worth the money. Tons of bugs and very little content.

It would do better is 2005 when it should of originally been released.  Too many other games now, gfx look dated and not enough in the game at start to keep attention unfortunately.

Agreed, it's an interesting game what with the minions system and Mythology, but it quickly loses it's charm, you're left with a very standard and aged system, korean grind etc etc..


Fun for a week or two.

OK ... being the glutton for punishment that I am, I D2D'ed it at lunch today... have not played it yet ... will fire it up after work.


Really, the only reason that I am even giving this the 30 days is b/c my play time is so limited right now ... and with the minion system it looks to be solo friendly ... and I have not gotten to play around with housing in years ...


Sooooooo ... this looks like a half court shot.  but here goes ...


Then again, you know what they say about a fool and his money heh ...
