NGE, LOTRO, STO, KOTOR, Lego Star Wars > NGE 2 (SWTOR). SWG>ALL. Above hopefully subject to change.

nice full of crap topic gj raging kiddys next time u start a topic  get some info before that .

License with LA had signed for 8 years or so dont know how old is swg , renewing this licens would cost to much same as f2po model.S

Sony wrote a freaking post with excuse and yet i see a dumb kiddo post with tons of silly answers omg ...

Next thing is TOR is from Bioware published by EA and with license from LA.

I dont freaking understand how u people write that LA made the game they just helping with the story go get some info firswt morons .

I broke my arm 3 days ago, butafter seeing crap like this i had to put my 3 words in it omg .

Stop tslking crap if u got no idea and just wait to see thx and bye

Ho hum, more "I wanted SWG2!" complaints.

It was confirmed by an LA rep...on the LucasArts forums...that the Fired former Head of the LA MMO department didn't want SW:G and TOR to compete and was able to get a 'No Compete Clause" added to the TOR contract between LA and EA (owners of Bioware).

LA bought out the remainder of the SW:G contract so that it would not be around after the End of this year....the Rumor I'm hearing from CS at SOE is that LA originally wanted SW:G shut down by November 1st...but SOE pushed for New Years Eve and was able to secure the 15th of December.

Comments from Smedley point out that the SW:G population was Stable and had been for some time.

I find a LucasArts rep making such a post on the LucasArts forum to be highly unlikely, give no one from LucasArts reads or posts to the LucasArts forums.  I don't suppose you have a link to the post, do you?

As for the Smed's statement, he has also said that he could have renegotiated with LucasArts to continue running SWG, but choose no to.  Hell, given the game's history, shutting it down was the first good decision the folks at SOE have made since the game went live.

There are also a few interviews from the day of the SWG shut down announcement where Smed states he hopes SWTOR does well and is looking forward to playing it. Those don't sound like the words of a man who feels LA killed his favorite puppy.

 He's not an idiot, posting dumb comments on a forum when your on a huge salary in an extremly fickle industry is career suicide. Very few people are that stupid, not these days.

It's business, wish them well and keep your opinions to yourself.

 So basically you are saying rgardless of what he said with his own mouth we should believe because someone on these forums said he was mad that he is in fact angry about it?????

Let's not forget that the salary he is on isn't Lucas Arts either.  I guess I could see him not throwing them under the bus but going out of his way to say nice things??

 Because it's totally reasonable to assume that because we know nothing about Titan, it will be exactly what we want it to be. 

 the makers of WoW said Titan will be a 'casual mmo'. the maers of WoW...said it will be a ...casual MMO.

 

it's not a sandbox it's going to be the biggest hand-holding, facebook-linking thing you've ever seen.

 

of course facebook will probably fade away like myspace by then so that'll be unfortunate but...yeah. dont expect a blizzard sandbox. expect a casul/social "pvp / pve optional" type of game.

I'm reading lots of stuff about titan, but the only quote i could find that says its casual was from an Analyst that is not a part of the Blizzard Development team.

So, the makers of WoW did not say it is, will be, or will not be a casual MMO, and i challenge you to find a credible resource that says otherwise.

For now we can dream i guess. 

Here is a quote i found that seems to indicate its casual.  I say that cause it refers to the game as being a ball to play, and that is not the way most describe sandboxes.

"Turning back to Titan, Sams revealed the yet-to-be-officially-named project was already in playable form, and early indications have Blizzard excited for its future prospects, noting, “It is a total ball to play. We think that the reach of that product is greater than anything that we've done before. We're very excited about that. I believe that it's the type of game that will have a very long life, much like World of Warcraft has.""

Well, SOE has clone wars which turned from an experiment to a oil well.  So...Smed is not going to rock that boat even if George Lucas himself cut his arm off with a lightsaber.

Jeff Freeman and Julio Torres were mostly responsible for the NGE, and they were both for SOE, not LA.

You're half right: Julio Torres was LucasArts' producer for SWG, Freeman was a SOE dev.

Interesting viewpoints, and probably some truth in it.. but I sincerely doubt that Titan is a sandbox game. No matter how much some of us MMORPG veterans love sandbox, that kind of game seems dead.

No developers that aims for high numbers of subscripotions seems to settle for sandbox as that kind of game is very attractive for a minority of gamers.

Blizzard has always done things simple and one of their mantras are: is this fun? when they are making games.. and sandbox is not the traditional fun in its pure form, more a "job like" type of thing.. so I highly doubt we will ever see a sandbox from Blizzard.

An awesome game, a titan yes.. but a sandbox.. I do not belive it.

Wrong. Torres was LA.

So I started to walk into the water. I won't lie to you boys...I was terrified. But I pressed on, and as I made my way past the breakers, a strange calm came over me. I don't know if it was divine intervention or the kinship of all living things, but I tell you, Jerry, at that moment ... I was a marine biologist.

Just like pvp sandbox is a niche it doesnt attract the sub numbers a AAA title wants or needs to make money and believe me all they care about is making money blizzard or LA or SOE its all about money.

 

Oh and wth has blizzard ever done that was new and ratical ?  WOW was hardly new nothing in the game is new or unique.

Another post crying about TOR not being SWG2?

Wow... I don't... I don't even know what to say to that. I can understand being bummed out about a game you really enjoy being closed down, but that girl is all 6's and 7's.

I think it's time to learn Chinese and Korean...

Only if we get to do this stuff here.

Oh, I think people are overestimating Blizzard's originality.  Warcraft I, II, III.  Starcraft I, II.  Diablo I, II, III.  Ummm, yeah. a paragon of originality.

 

Blizzard makes the avatar and titanics of the video game world.  And they do it well.  No they are not the most original but they are good at what they do,  and that is no reason to knock em.

You're proving his point.  He saying is Blizzard DID make great games that weren't really original.  Yet for some reason when other companys now make MMO's they some how need to be completely original...

I think Bioware has a good chance to just what Blizzard did many times.  Built a standard game of teh genre, add so small innovations, and have a smooth relatively bug free game.

SWTOR isn't an MMORPG so I don't see it being a long term success.

Really?  Why isn;t the game a MMORPG?

Always remember that you're unique. Just like everyone else.

TOR is the NGE NGEd, but written from the ground up

In TOR,

Crafting looks to be dumbed down further from NGE

Space is more dumbed down from NGE

Professions have been reduced further from NGE

Vehicles look to be dumbed down too, as have seen no 8 player vehicles, and the Stap with the CE is ridiculous, as should not appear for another 1000s of years!

Curious...

When SWG released, how many vehicles were in-game? How "in-depth" was space upon SWG's release? I assume you were a beta tester for TOR to make that claim about crafting?
