I agree Deacon.This will probably be a polished game at release,but the cartoony look's are a big turnoff.Why do we need another WoW?

You can plead all you want that it isn't WoW,but I spent over 6yrs in that game.The graphic's and such of this game are right there with WoW.We don't need 2 Wow's.

If people eat this game up,so be it.I'm happy for them and glad they found a game they really enjoy.If they don't,what does that tell you??

Its cheaper to do cartoon than a live movie .

 

Also cartoons last longer . You can watch mickey mouse from 30 years ago and it doesn't look dated . But watch a movie 30 years old and you will lol at the special effects.

As long as the comedy they are representing the game to have actually "has it" and is not some sort of marketing gimmick I am actually interested to see more. If it becomes (this was a marketing gimmick the actual lore in game is all cereal) I will be definitely disappointed. It looks promising and the only class that actually interest me is the builder, if it actually is more then just fighting crap all the time I am all for it! About time a game came out that wasn't a grind fest of kill this or that with humor to boot? I am all in. Still, it's a wait and see game.

 

edit; oh and Grailer very good point indeed! :)

Yeah, I'm not thrilled with the cartoony tone of this MMO.  To each his own though.

I'm less than thrilled about who is publishing the game. NCSoft has demonstrated itself to be untrustworthy and I won't give it my money until it proves itself otherwise. There are too few sci-fi games out there and I was tempted to give this one a try until I found out who the publisher was. It has things I haven't seen in an MMORPG before and I hope it could pull it off well enough to allow the game company to strike out on its own.

Don't like the artistic look of the game.  I don't care if it's similar to WoW (I am not a Wow hater) but frankly I believe WoW looked much better.

I'm pretty much in the same boat.  I love some of the concepts of Wildstar, but I don't know if I'd ever truly be able to get into the game as I would like with an MMO because of the setting and style.  I'm not generally a fan of sci-fi or cartoony games, a little less so the former.  The only thing I've ever liked that deals with a space setting has been the Mass Effect series.

I've talked about the problem with the cartoony style. Hell, I have the same problem with WoW. Usually some one tells me "How dare you not play a great game because of they way it looks!"   

I just don't care how great a game is if I don't like the look of it.   I'll be spending all the time staring at the screen. If it doesn't appeal to me, I really can't see myself playing long. And I don't like playing cartoons.

Power without perception is spiritually useless and of no true value

Its going to be an excellent game, but not for me. As an rper I'm just looking for something that takes itself a bit more seriously. More power to those that enjoy it though and what it offers.

 

I don't mind an animated look but give me a anime look like FFXIV over this game.  Not to mention OP I'm also with you, I like games where the lore gets taken seriously, I've had enough playing with those who won't follow lore, its a pet peeve of mine and this game only but a few are going to give a damn about the lore.

Its a lovely game, again I think its going to be great if that is what you are looking for. Myself? I want my virtual worlds back please.

 

 

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!

Can we please stop saying cartoony = childish, cause this really isn't the case.

Also in case anybody was wondering why WoW and now Wildstar chose this style: It is timeless and ages very well. This is why realistic styles do not work very well, they age poorly and within a few years the game looks really outdated and the atmosphere it had is lost.

I kind of like the style, but imho the colors are a little to saturated. I prefer WoWs color over WildStar. WoW's art style was pretty much the only thing I ever liked about WoW.

I agree,

Good graphics are one of the downfalls of mmos. Developers use to much resorces in trying to please kids with high end computers. and in most cases high end graphics suck too in one way or another.....It's about game play and we all know we need a good mmo !

It is absolutely Ah-OK to not like something for the way it looks.

Humans are very much visual creatures so much that it affects how we taste foods and how we hear things :D

That being said I love the style of Wildstar and anyone saying this is 2000 graphics has to have their sight checked! mwhahahaha! No, seriously, it is much better, technically, than WoW ever was, look those models in motion! many many many polygons! check the grass swaying in the wind! etc.

So you can dislike it, but saying this is dated graphics is ignoring the facts.

Finally, Wildstar has a big "Jim Raynor/Firefly" vibe going on for it, with the Exiles being the "Space Cowboys" of the game and the Dominion being the... welll high tech oppressive Empire/Mensgk Dominion/ Firefly Alliance :D

Don't get me wrong, this looks like it will probably be a very polished and well put together game. I just feel like the lore and overall setting is really...boring.

I'm not opposed to a good Sci-Fi MMO. I mean, the fantasy theme has been a bit overplayed, for sure. I just feel no desire or interest to explore Nexus, to join either Dominion or Exile, or to advance the "main story" quest. Am I alone in feeling this way? Like I said before the game itself seems promising but in order to truly feel engaged in an online universe I feel like the concept and setting need to be exciting.

 

Does anyone else feel uneasy or skeptical that they'll be able to enjoy and get into the lore of this game?

Before I get into this, I am going to say some things that are based purely on my opinion, I am not trolling, just stating MY opinion.

Having said that, it reminds me of WoW in space as far as graphics go  which is a huge turn off for me.  I like what I have read about the systems, I don't normally care at all about story (TSW being the exception, but the story IS the game so...)  so that does not weigh on my opinion, my only real hang up is the cartoony style.  From everything I have read thus far I believe it will be a fun, engaging and very popular game and I am sure I will give it a go at least for a bit, but I won't play long term as the graphics make me want to gouge out my eyeballs.  Not really, but I don't like the graphics.

If you want a new idea, go read an old book.

At least its a slightly orginal setting for an MMO, not just another carbon copy High Fantasy romp.

But in the end what really matters is: Does it play well?

I completely disagree.  Graphics are one of the most important aspects of an MMO to me.  I hate the cartoony style, and luckily I can afford a computer that can run any game I want at ultra settings.  The part of your statement there I really have to disagree with is the 'kids with high end computers'.  I would think more adults would have high end computers.  Anyway, I am far from a kid, I have a very high end computer and I really enjoy high end graphics, to me the WoW style of cartoony graphics is a waste of time.

If you want a new idea, go read an old book.

Until this game goes into full Beta we really don't know what the endgame graphics are going to look like and how high they are going to crank them.  

What is debated is not the graphics, but the art style. Some people like Water colors, some people like oil paints. Some people don't care and just find Van Gogh's life fascinating. The art style is very cartoon/anime, which the developers have said. Neither cartoon nor anime equal childish. I prefer that artstyle to "realistic" because games have not mastered realistic yet,.

My red button is game play and gear grinding. From all the panels I have heard, endgame will be more than just 40 - man raids, those are designed for a small minority they are hoping to attract. I'm looking forward to the Foundry-like dungeons, War raids and the continous paths the game claims.
