Don't worry, they're not the only press invited, and what do you call any "secret" that's shared between more than two people?

Closed Beta!

No, we really mean it with these NDA's...stop spreading gossip...guys, stop...we're super cereal.

Some kind of special award is needed for Microsoft's disastrous Xbox showing, and Sony's triumph.

Microsoft should learn not to put the Idiots in the same company building with the Insanely Greedy.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

Serious?  If so, I hope you realize that some game marketed for 12 year old will never make a serious list.

 

As for EQNext taking the top prize I am excited because I hope they can pull it off.  As long as the game features a PvE centric role (Would prefer zero PvP) and no reliance on Forced Grouping (2 notions not normally associated with Everquest). I will be happy.  Cautiously guarded is my state of mind right now.

 

I don't know about Destiny I am far more interested in seeing what's up with The Division.  It looks to be freaking amazing and is IMO one of the bright spots at this show.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

LMAO either SOE has one hell of a marketing team or this is going to be amazing.  Though i really wish they would start sending out teasers (images, lore SOMETHING) before the Aug reveal.  BAH, its good to have that anticipation feeling again though lol

Start attaching your name to articles, and your prose can exhibit similar power.

And open yourself up for similar abuse too, I suspect.

Some of you do realize that it is MMORPG.com's best of show. Not mine, yours, or the public's best of show, right?

EQNext is the game I am waiting for, most of these others are just placeholders that really offer nothing new.  Not a big SOE fan, but they seem to have woken up to reality.  Just have to wait and see.

Good luck attempting to make a decent MMO using the Warhammer IP, Games Workshop is notorious for ruining such titles, they can't seem to rid themselves of the need to maintain board game rules.  I immediately avoid any title they are associated with.

It's very opinionated to say sandbox is the way of the future considering the sales of sandboxes versus themeparks. I love sandbox elements but whole games surrounded by the cocnept I don't see can escape being more than a niche.  where are the additional plyers coming from?

Role playing folk still like a story, and sandboxes are usually devoid of that. 

Simulation folk would probably love a peaceful massive multiplayer game, but one where players can easily destroy and steal hours of work. I can't see too many excited by this.  

FPS folk would be most likely, but the patience it takes to play an mmo doesnt mesh well with the genre. 

So in the end it feelsl ike everyon'es competing for the Eve player base.

I think you may be slightly incorrect, I for one believe that role playing folks would be looking for an immersive world in order to create their characters story, not a pre-fabricated world story to dance along with.

 

There are plenty of people who used to play, or possibly still do play, Pen and Paper RPG's whom have been looking for a world where this is possible, now I have loved my fair share of themeparks, but I myself would love to have a world to play in with a wealth of opportunity. Whether EQN will give people that we will have to wait and see - hopefully not too long.

 

Personally as much as EVE innovated and expanded a specific sandbox niche (space and economy simulation), it isn't what most are looking for I would hazard.

In 2 months we can decide if MMOrpg.com was paid off or not =-) My guess is its legit. This is a SoE in house game. Cant wait to see what they have for us fans. EQ1 was my first MMO love!

I dont think sandbox theme of EQN is what sandbox fans think its going to mean. My bet is SoE have some new tools to make things we used to call themepark into sandbox play. Get ready to see everything old made new and some new stuff to boot.

Console games don't deserve any awards.  Unless they eventually intend to release this for the PC, The Division should not be considered for anything.  My 3 year old PC is already equal to either of the consoles.  I can update it to much better by spending less than console money.  

Same with Destiny, no matter how good, as a console game it is less than equal to anything else.  Why limit yourself with a console when a PC is just as affordable and far more productive?

Oh I completely agree, much like basically all Sandbox games are not actually full sandbox, after all when was the last time you remembered being able to sit in a box and be able to create EVERYTHING all around you with anybody being able to come and destroy it, or rebuild it, alter it, etc?

 

The true Sandbox is a difficult beast, but any step to make Sandbox a possibility could be great, I'm just having a "wait and see" approach at the moment though. :)
