OP  12/01/11 4:04:04 PM#1

Is The Secret World too good to be true? Judging by the press previews last month, it appears not. But many have a healthy sense of skepticism about Funcom's ability to deliver. Take a look at the budding optimism that is building here at MMORPG.com and then let us know what you think in the comments.

I know what you guys are thinking. After the recent round of press previews, there’s no way The Secret World can be as good as it sounds. I can dig that sentiment. I mean, how many times have we been burned by the hype of a game nearing launch, only to find a muddle mess which we spent $50 on? Our own Suzie Ford was quoted as saying, “With launch less than six months away, my guess is that TSW is going to take the world by storm and set new standards for excellence in gameplay and engagement in an increasingly tired industry.” Let me tell you something guys and gals… Suzie doesn’t impress easily. I should know. Nothing I ever say gets but a scoff and a scowl.

Overhyping a game always fails to deliver at the end.

We only can hope that it is true .... the mmorpg genre needs a title again that is complete different frome what else is on the market and being successfull at the same time that the genre can change again in another direction before all got burned out of the same stuff over and over again is my opinion.

I myself am looking forward to this game and will be there at launch. The more and more I see it and hear about it the more and more I am thinking this will be my main mmorpg with TOR being my second. I was very impressed with what I saw at NYCC.

Any mmo worth its salt should be like a good prostitute when it comes to its game world- One hell of a faker, and a damn good shaker!

Keeping an eye on it, but Holy Age of Conan, Batman, Funcom has a reputation of being clueless with launches and client stability. Everything could be the second coming with TSW, but if the CTD's are constant no one will care.

I will be playing it at some point, but I'll take a wait and see approach with this game. SWTOR will have me busy for a while.

***Raving Rabbid will choose Illuminati as his starting faction!***

All my opinions are just that..opinions. If you like my opinions..coolness.If you dont like my opinion....I really dont care.
Playing: SWTOR, Marvel Heroes and WOT.

Anyone remember how Age of Conan also supposedly had action based combat and free aiming of spells about 6 months before launch? :)


It's Funcom.


Just saying...

I remember all the hype that came out with AoC too, and it was deservedly so.  The game had new combat, incredible graphics, great story, etc.


 


Then the game was released....yeh.


 


The ONLY thing TWS should be focused on when they get close to launch is a stable client.  IF they don't have a stable client, MMO'ers from everywhere will burn and bury Funcom.  There will be no recovery.

I hope this game is everything and more than Funcom is telling us. If it is they will have my sub for a long time.

I have been there for the AO and AoC launches. With Funcom I will take a wait and see approach. I was in the early closed Beta for AoC. So much feedback and bug reporting was ignored to meet the launch schedule... we see how that turned out.

Hopefully I am wrong as I am a huge fan of Funcoms ideas, just not the implementation.

I'll be playing it, but not at launch.


What's funny is that I know in my heart this game is going to have a strong launch purely due to who is implementing it. It's probably mean to say that I chalk the bad launches of their previous two MMORPG's to the design implementations of one person, but I do. That said though, I am still going to wait a few months from launch before buying the box.

I'll kick your a**e so hard, you could build a swimming pool in the footprint!

There's one major flaw with this argument: without hyping or generating buzz for new releases this site becomes irrelevent.


Basically it's all very well saying, 'oh were cynical, so you can trust us when we say it's going to be awesome!', but if you were actually cynical then not only would you lose posters but you'd lose cooperation from the developers for access. Fansites/reviewsites have to be self perpetual they have to be positive about the future, otherwise whats the point?  I'm not critisng, I know how this works, but it's a bit rich to assume that the above sentiment gives credibility.


At the end of the day it's Fun.com.  Fact of the matter is they've had two god awful launches and a lot of failed promises.  If you weren't skeptical about anything else they produce at this point I'd like to take some of whatever it is that makes you so carefree and happy :P


So far for a game that's releasing in six months I've seen a lot of chatter and not much actual footage.  Maybe I've missed something as I haven't followed it that closely but for me this is a, 'wait for six months after release', type of thing.  Thats my being optimistic as well :) 


This looks like a job for....The Riviera Kid!

Ten years of dealing with FC has conditioned me not to expect a whole lot from TSW. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on it after opening though and if I hear good things, I'll give it a shot.

Honestly its not the game that's the problem, it's the company - Anyone who has dealt with Funcom know's they have a terrible history.  It's taken them 5 years just to fix AoC.  Maybe the game will have great graphics, maybe it will have a great story and nice mechanics, but I'm betting it will be full of bugs, class balance issues and broken quest, then it will take Funcom 5+ years to fix things during which the population will dive bomb until it ends up like AoC -a game with great potential early on, a great idea, a great population at first and then nothing..

The launch hype around AoC and subsequent dissappointment still burns bright. I hope lessons were learned and will be not be repeated.

I remember when Funcom showcased their huge PvP in a scripted and totally fake way to build hype for AoC so I take anything they show to the press now very lightly

The game seem great.

 

Didn't they plan on going cash shop + sub....

 

I will pass on that one.

I'm waiting for it and hope it delivers, however my enthusiasm is somewhat limited by the fact it is done by Funcom therefore it will most likely suffer from a small instanced world.. which is a big issue for me. I have no doubt the graphics will be top of the line with fun combat just like AoC though.

Well, atleast Funcom got their Dreamworld technology much more mature and stable for AoC than it was at launch. That leaves hopes that TSW could be delivered in a good fashion technology wise.

As for the rest, it looks very, very exciting. But how much of this will come true we'll see at launch. Press covarage sounds good so far, but that was the case for AoC, too.

we know one thing, there will be no issues with class balance.  Its skill based, classless game, where everyone can have every skill
