The game looks great! The graphics a tad cartoons but so what. The mechanics of this game look to be awsome as well. the worst thing about this release is the petty whiney attitude of the haters, you would not be happy in any case scenario and seem to relish getting in on the antihype train. Remember you can use tissues more than once to dry your eyes. Just goes to show what most know allready, can't please everyone, and that's good, Sony again has made the game they wanted to make, not the visions of a fickle player base.

Gonada Dahung,over 20 years of mmorpg's and counting....Please Lord, let someone make a game that had all the awesomeness of UO, EQ and EVE...

What are you talking about? It pleases exactly the same people the last two dozens of cartoony theme parks pleased.

According to marketing research, no one else exists, therefore your thread title is not logical.

Agreed! EQ:Next has jumped to #1 on my radar at this point. A very impressive first showing. I'm hungry for more info.

Of course they can't please everyone.  SOE had already made their choice, they are going for mass market, they want a slice of that pie that other larger MMORPG's have been enjoying.  This is probably good for those liking mass market games, games made to be rather casual, fast combat with little buttons to push, indicators that tell you where not to stand, etc..  For those looking for something deeper, or to re-live the old school days, EQ Next isn't it.   For awhile people thought it was it based on Smed's random tweets.  But now that cat's out of the bag, there's no question what SOE"s target audience is.

 

I'm not saying I'm in either camp, I'm kind of in the middle and enjoy most games to a certain degree.  But I do see people becoming extremely disappointed today.

It was never gonna please everyone because non MMORPG could ever live up to waht they built up in their own minds from Smed and Co's cryptic statements and vague allusions.For me personally I'm interested but not convinced.

However expect the bitterness of the former group to consume these forums for sometime.It's par for the course here.

You gotta admit, it was pretty hilarious watching everyone up on that perch for the announcement. Afterwards, half fell forward, the other half fell backward.

 

These boards have gone beyond /popcorn worthy now. Think I'll have to step away until it calms down. I wonder where Darkpony found solace?

I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

Or SWTOR,since he originally loved it so very much.

EQN definatly looks like it could be awesome, and while know you can't please everyone, it kinda sad to see how many whine about nonsense..

Themepark? how? I guees you were to busy crying about the graphics to catch even a fraction of the info given.

As for the graphics even being "cartoony" or "wow-clone", did you stop watching as soon as you saw the kerran shoulderpads? overall the game looks far more like bioshock infinite or dishonored, both of which most would agree have awesome graphics.

Personally I think they need to tone down the shoulder pads, in specific the kerran ones, but other then that the graphics are quite awesome, more so if you consider that its voxel based.

Also knowing SoE's history I am not to optimistic that they won't screw up, however the graphics are not the problem, and a themepark it clearly is not.

And even if they screw it up, the innovative features they are trying will play a important part in future mmos.

So regardless ill be thankful that someone finally started pushing the genre toward something new and exciting.

 

 

 

 

PS: I doubt alot of the original EQ players played eq because of the "gritty" graphics, I know I didnt.

Infact most gamers back then were far more intrested in gameplay then graphics, for obvious reasons.

To that I agree, I don't understand why these companies always forget their own fanbase when creating new games.  I pleaded to Mythic to create a DAOC 2, but instead they sold out to EA and made Warhammer Online instead.  I pleaded to Turbine to re-create AC1, but they went with LOTR Online.  Same with SOE, I was hoping they would make an upgraded EQ when they first made EQ2, but we all know how that went.  And here they are once again. flipping their fanbase off.

 

Oh well it is what it is, all companies are doing it.

I'm not going to argue with you on what you liked or didn't. 

 

You agree on the graphics.  You say the mechanics are awesome.  Now, i can't argue with that, because I don't know if the mechanic are awesome.  Virtually no mechanics were shown.

- How does combat work?   not shown.

- How is the group / solo / raid content?  not shown.

- How is crafting? not shown.

- How is itemization? not shown.

- How are the classes? not shown.

- What's PvP like?  not shown.

- What's questing like? not shown.  (they did mention that dynamic quests exist). 

- How deep is character progression / custumization?  not shown.

 

you see where i am going with this?  I can't say that the game has "bad mechanics".  Because they haven't been shown. Aside from Rally Calls (which do sound awesome) none of the game's key systems have been shown.

They don't really need to please everyone. If they make a great game they'll have one of the few choices for MMOs and people who don't like the art style will still suck it up and play.

There's a saying about evolution and why we have two eyes and two ears but only one mouth. Clearly it didn't see the internet coming or it never would have given us ten fingers to type with.
