I've seen the videos for Black Desert a few times. It's pretty, but still nothing new or exciting. It looks just like TERA to me. I might just be burned out. The games may be fantastic, but just not for me at this time.

It even has the same horrible NPC/object draw-distance that Tera does where shit just pops up in front of your face out of nowhere.

Yeah this is now blatantly obvious that it is being made for and marketed towards children/low teens.

 

What a waste to do this to their EQ IP.

Even the introduction thursday shows how out of touch SOE is. Tuttle actually expected people to be excited about britney spears.... They use twitch and twitter to make design decisions now. This is why the stream has the same amount of viewers as random indie games.

I'm not even a "hater" and EQN was one of the only games besides Black Desert I was really even interested in but honestly this game just fell off my radar unless the NPC's are damn near realistic AI levels of interaction.  Not very impressed with anything Ive seen so far.  /shrug.  I still hold out hope, but I dunno my interest level just went from Full bore to non existent.

Keeping in mind that this is alpha/beta, and while I do like some of the distructable ground effects, this just plain looks horrible.

IMO -  it looks exactly what it is.

Bad and clunky.

There's no sugarcoating it - you see these new classes in action and it's a trainwreck.

again just my opinion 

Yes I know it's pre-alpha - but even for pre-alpha this is bad - heck that crappy Pantheon pre-alpha had more soul than this.

Wow. I was soooo excited for EQN but now I have no idea what to say. 

Possibly switching EQN to the same setup as Landmark.. was a bad idea. The style , voxels , action combat . etc feels at home in Landmark .. In EQN I feel it could be holding the game back. Go launch Planetside 2 and then Landmark.. I would rather be running around an EQN that looked like PS2 than Landmark.

I feel the same way.

HOWEVER 

the tradeoff for destrucible world (voxel farm on top of Forgelight engine) - is that the game looks FUGLY (my opinion).

PS2 looks fine to me.

I run around in Landmark - and it's just blotchy blobby poop - that's what things look like (especially in distance) - like globs of putty.

EQNext as the game touted to "revolutionize the genre" - umm... no.

It looks clunky because it was on the EQN test server. The animations in Landmark are actually very smooth and detailed.

An MMO's ability to revolutionize the genre is,not going to succeed or fail by it's graphics. C'mon now.

Destructible world sounds good, but looks bad. After building stuff in Landmark I realized how limited their voxel system is to create detailed shapes with. You see the flaws in the buildings and instead of using good artists, they copied what people made in Landmark. Even though there are some amazing stuff in Landmark, the voxel based stuff wont stand scrutiny. Voxels for terrain is ok, but for buildings etc, not pretty.

What they showed with abilities that digs holes in the ground is just unfitting and unnatural, hey even in Landmark I find it kindda wierd that you can just start up your (forgot the name) "disintegrator5000" and 30 secs later having dug youself a 100m deep hole in solid rock.

First order of business should really be to try and fix the fundamental problems with voxels limited shape options and looks, that is what Landmark needs badly, then it might be acceptable to use for a mmorpg like eqnext that is supposed to compete with beautiful and almost naturalistic style in other mmorpgs.

Agree, I'm too old and arthritic for this action crap. If I want a fighting game I'll get my butt kicked on Smash Bros or Street Fighter or something.  I've been with EQ for years, since EQOA, up to now, a founder of Landmark....it's like a slap in the face not listening to old fans, it's just a console kid money grab. To top it off, it's just going to be a recycled Landmark with a few more mob and AI, etc...  Adios EQ. GL

Just don't show it if it's not ready and looks that bad.

Look, we loved or hated or are somewhere in between with WoW (ya I'm going there). 

Do you know why it's still doing pretty good after 10 years? The combat is tight. Now it might not be the type of combat you like, but it's a game that when you click your button, you feel something is happening.

2 games I played that I wanted to like, Warhammer Online and SWTOR just didn't have that level of crispness if you will.

One is dead, the other is free to play.

They can run their mouths about Voxels and such all they want, but if the game plays anything like it looks in that video, thats GG.

To me the issue is the fixed/panning camera. Almost always looks terrible regardless of the game. We don't play in those views so it instantly looks unnatural and off. When in player POV, what we see of ourselves and others is completely different. The Landmark Keynote shows combat from the player POV with UI and it looks normal and very good. Everything is smoother. Assuming companies go for the fixed camera because it is like watching a movie or something, but it doesn't really work with video game animations. All we see are models sliding around.

For those in shock or whatever that the game is action combat oriented, don't know what to say beyond you either like it or you don't. They've made it clear from the start. Has a lot in common with other recent games and reminds me of the MOBA Smite quite a lot, which is good to me. If people can't handle having to aim and be active, plenty of games to stand still and hit tab 12345 at a meat sack. Neither is better, but action is the future and allows for a lot more possibilities.

The combo system (freezing rock and then smashing through it) looks great and I hope only goes up from here. Really what I was hoping for to make team work matter and not just DPS spamming. I'm sure they'll have a lot of feedback through Landmark on timing and how combat speed should work as far as damage being dealt, players moving around, encounter length etc. Looks pretty fast currently, but with a whole set of skills available, it might be more then who can burn down the other fastest.

Reading some of your comments, it is obvious that no matter what SOE or any company really does, unless it is tailored to specific XYZ requirements, no game will ever match up. No game will be EQ99 transported to today or whatever other mythical creation. Call it cash grab, kid games, console generation, whatever, but some people need to realize that they might not be the target audience anymore and probably don't make up the majority of gamers. These games are played by millions upon millions of people of various backgrounds and styles. Not the small crowd from late 90s, early 00s.

I'm glad I've adapted, just wish more games actually had some depth. SOE seems to be making that a possibility with the total package. If you hate the visual design or having to aim or whatever other random thing, it is what it is. Move on. Which I'm sure most will do in a day or week just like after last SOE Live.

Well... they have 2 years to make improvements! This has to be pre-pre-alpha.

The game is not even in alpha yet but people are judging it by this video like it's coming out tomorrow. And thank god it's action combat. Maybe I won't fall asleep in the middle of a fight like in AA. I'm 39 years old and tab target/sandwich combat doesn't do it for me anymore. And for those of you who don't know what sandwich combat is, it's when you fight something by pressing tab to target it and then buttons 12345 with one hand and eat a sandwich with the other.

It is a revolution in just about every single way, and the only argument you pose against this fact is that the non-optimized pre-alpha rendering of terrain at a distance is lacking polish.  Great argument.  You sold it.
