I am pretty sure that's it being the game is made with the Forge Light engine. Watch this its what EQnext is capable of.

Smedley and sandboxes, that's a first.

 

 

To Smedley: how's that sandbox Star Wars Galaxies going these days?

You are either not creative or have never worked in a creative environment..you can't be regimental and expect people to produce creative ideas.

Because gamers (and game makers) tend to be laid back, fun people. I don't see that as a bad thing.

Probably because the tech industry people actually have to work and don't have time to sit around masturbating to the thought of how professional the mediocre workers are. I'm sure you'll get more "professionalism" in tech once you can keep doing the same thing year after year without thinking.

You are forgetting that they ruined both of those with their "vision". One was ignored to death and did not innovate or offer anything much new and thus withered, and the other was killed in the quest to copy WoW. So, even on the off chance SOE makes a good game with EQN, what are the chances they don't wreck it?

ignored to death?  The game has like 17 expansions now and has hardly been static throughout them.  

Anyone who thinks EQ has ever been remotely ignored is clueless.

As for SWG, Lucas Arts wont be involved with EQN

So you want games to be made by uptight, dull suits with sticks up their ass instead of people that look like they are all about creativity and fun?

Lucasarts can't be blamed fully for SWG's demise.

They had their say in it yes, fact is that this particular game was mismanaged from day 1 and founded on lies and deceit.

it wasnt founded on lies and deceit, get your damn head out of your ass will you?

It *was* pushed out the door at least 6 months too soon by the publisher (Lucas Arts)

The combat/balance of the game was always among the worst in MMORPG history, full of good ideas not properly executed

SoE wasn't happy with the results post-WoW, but nobody knew then that WoW was an anomaly.

SoE was probably behind the CU.

Beyond that, the only thing you can really blame SoE for is not having a spine and telling LA to fuck off with pushing out the NGE right after an expansion.  they should have made a stand, if LA pulled the license so be it.  But of course hindsight is 20/20 and they probably thought it would work out in the long run anyway.

Take it easy Smedley fanboi.

Like I told you LA is also to blame, but SOE as well with their very poor customer service, lying to the fanbase, very bad coding and performance of the game.

+ releasing fake videos at fanfest of 'future content' which they knew would never come ingame is a death sin, lying to customers is the worst thing you can do when you're in business.

Also releasing roadmaps, selling an expansion when you know you are screwing over the entire fanbase 2w after that is a no-go in business.

Hindsight? yes of course.

But also I call it 'past experience' with Smedley's squad. That's why I advise ppl to not go blind and go all 'oooooh aaaaaaaaah droooooooool' until you see the working product. He has done it before so personally I am cautious with stuff released like that untill I see more.

You are obvious very protective towards EQN as I am pessimistic about the trustworthy of mr Smedley.

If I made you very emo, too bad, this is a forum, you get to say your thing, I get to say my thing.

I do hope he makes a good product this time though and can prove me wrong.

This is the exact type of thing thats lucas arts, not SoE.   Again, you can blame SoE for not standing up to LA but you are blaming them for the wrong things.   They shouldnt have released the expansion until they knew if NGE was happening or not (and we know that the programmers had no clue it was going live when it did) but that wasn't their call.  they could have stonewalled it though but realistically they probably didnt have that luxury...SoE can afford to never work with star wars again but Sony as a whole wouldnt want bad blood with LA.

We will see how it all pans out.

I hope you're right and this game turns out to be a benchmark for tomorrow's MMO's instead of that Blizzard game. This genre needs help dearly.

I wont deny SOE has a poor history of spoiling games post launch  heh

But you know...find one game company, anywhere, that doesn't.

Game A evolves through Expansion X ("You know, I liked good old plain game A better")

Expansion Y "What the hell were you thinking? Your *core* players are all very upset... (ever notice *self* is always one of *core*?)

Expansion Z "That does it, this game is totally different, I quit."

---

Proceed to Game B. Begin sequence again.

---

Proceed to games C though J.

"Man, I really liked early Game A better. Can you reboot that?"

---

Proceed to Game K (the reboot)

"Man, I really liked early Game A better."

---

Proceed to Game L (reboot of the reboot)...

but then taken down

http://eq2wire.com/2011/01/26/first-eqnext-video-with-character-model-game-assets/

Thanks to a tip, EQ2Wire has located the first high quality video of EQnext character models in action. The video includes a series of character animation loops with sound effects. A human male knight, followed by a skeletal warrior, and an orc are shown fighting and doing other emotes.

 

 

The pics you are referencing in the article from two years ago are cartoony....just as all the comments from  the article are saying. In fact, I tend to agree with the comments from that article that those photos from two years ago look very "World of Warcraft." Maybe you and I are looking at different photos from that article, but I don't see any similarity whatsoever in comparison with this animation you have posted above from Twitter to the "cartoony-ness" of those pics from two years ago from the article two years ago.

Does anyone know of any actual sandbox features to be included in the game?  I have heard the word sandbox tossed around a lot but the only feature I know of is player created content.  While that is sandboxy-ish, I'd not consider Neverwinter or STO a sandbox for it.

Tabletop RPG gaming since Chainmail and D&D was a blue book with some cheap plastic dice and a crayon. MMORPGing since MOOS/MUDS, when forums were just bulletin boards and players actually roleplayed their characters.
