Isn't SweetFX just for 32-bit executables. I wanted to use it for Skyrim but I have a 64-bit machine.

No way man. It's a brand name.

 

Ahh the memories of Bioware and Star wars pre launch are flooding back....

True, past performance is not indicative of future results. But there is $x.xx of dollars waiting on this game. They release I will invest into them and give it a go. It turns out to be another...what was it...tortanic? I lose a couple of bucks. 

I didn't lose a dollar on Star Wars, The Secret World and countless other over-hyped duds that have rolled down this mmorpg.com pipe. I am willing to put my rep behind TESO though.

 

Well, glad you are Ink.

The point I was making though was simply a trusted dev, lots of money, and a much loved brand do not always add up to a good game, so citing them at this point as a reason why it's gonna be great is a bit premature.

The chances are TESO will be a solid offering and appeal to a decent amount of people, though sadly I won't be one of them for different reasons. I actually hope it won't be another SWTOR tbh... this industry needs more succes and diversity all round.

 

(Tips hat) Thank you, kind Sir. Sadly, you will not be joining us. While no game is ever perfect, especially at launch, I will be hanging in there with the rest of the crowd on release day. For whatever reasons you cannot play TESO, wishing you the best of luck in all of your gaming endevours.

~Ink

Sub.

Make it a level playing field.

WoW does have microtrans though.

Two things, first it isn't bethesda making this game they make SP games, and by todd Howards own words that's what they'll stick to, second they weren't bought out by EA.

Zenimax (Media) owns Bethesda, Arkane, Id and Zenimax Studios. The TES IP is all owned under one roof. So the powers that be at the top of Zenimax will probably not want their online version of the game released* without the same level of quality that the SP games were made.

I certainly would hope so, my point was about the lack of similarities between the TOR situation and this one. To be specific i do not think a failure here would come back to haunt the TES franchise as a whole, i think that's half the reason they've created a studio as they have, not to mention why Beth-soft themselves did not create an MMO.

We are talking about different companies and different IP's. Matt Firor runs ZO Studios and he was an integral part in* the creation of Dark Age of Camelot when he was with Mythic Entertainment. We know how the MMOG community feels about DAoC. One of the many reasons why I am personally backing TESO.

What is the music of life?

Y'know what? I don't really care. I don't care about the PvE, the PvP or the .0025% of the world I can or cannot PvP on. I just really want to play the game. It's TES, how bad can it be? Do you really think Bethesda will let its best cash-cow falter (beside FO3 n NV) after so many years of success? 

No way man. It's a brand name.

Zenimax has to appeal to a very diverse crowd that has followed this brand, if not blindly, for years. So yeah, they have to appeal to the crafters, the min-max mages, the two-handed hack-it-all's-gonna-melt-your-face-with-my-axe and the duel-wielding-quest-grinding-flower-picking crowd that has sprung from every river run through Nirn. That is why PvP is going to be part of TESO, in my humble opinion.

What is the music of life?

Hunter weapon!

Throwbacks eh? I will see your Bow of Taut Sinew and raise you a Rhok'delar.

Beat that.

Heck yeah, both games should have multiplayer capabilities.

Remember when Half-life was released and had an online mode. Yes, it was primarily king-of-the-mountain style maps where we all just ran around and shot each other up, but it gave the game more of a lifespan and increased its following. Demons Souls online capabilities made the already good game more of a hit that there would be sudden pvp. 

It would work better in Skyrim in dungeons. If a player could come in and either help or hinder you, then it wouldnt end up feeling like just another hack n slash dungeon crawl. Same with the Witcher series. 

/sigh

There will always be a part of my that loves WoW, yet I cannot play it any longer. I played in vanilla right up until the release of TBC then quit. I was probably quitting at the absolute worst time, that was when WoW was at its peak. But I ended up returning years later post TBC and WoTLK after Cata was released. Blizzard sent me a free 10 days, worst move ever. I quickly got sucked into my old server Dethecus and powered my Tauren Hunter up to 80.

I was a career hunter, no alts, just played him and had a priest I was leveling on the side. Every time I was relaxing on my priest, someone from my guild was like, "Yo, get on your hunter and ____" whatever we were rolling into.

I have to admit, all the new pets and mount they added to the game were cool and fun to tame and parade around with. But I felt as if I was flying last years flag. What was fresh and new to me was run-o-the-mill for most others. WoW is a surprisingly social game, so I picked up a good raiding guild very quickly. 

I did enjoy soloing most dungeons that it took a full raid to complete. I could just imagine the effort it took to kill most bosses that I was soloing with a turtle. My guild still could not understand my excitement when I picked up Chromaggus as a pet and named him Barney. It is different seeing things through the eyes of a vanilla player. 

Yet, the grind and the neverending gear on a stick chase wears me down after awhile. I cannot sacrifice real life for virtual stuff I really don't own anymore. Once again, I unceremoniously quit WoW and uninstalled the game. Looking back, I am yet to find another game like WoW that could suck me in that quickly.

My moneys on TESO. If that doesn't do it for me, I am going to hang up my spurs forever. Good luck in your gaming future OP.

I only play on private hives now. www.dayzrp.com is where I spend most of my time and the admins there have been pretty successful with keeping the lowlifes out.

 Also OP, you have to remember, DayZ is not a game, its a MOD...

That pretty much sums it up for me.

I don't play games for the people.

 

This makes me cry.

 

Now that you point that out, I realize how sad it does sound. But I am great with with other people online-sometimes. Other times I just want to kick back and unwind with a fun game. I am putting all the marbles on TESO. I think that is going to be the next game to draw me in. When I get drawn into a game, and its fun, the personal relationships just seem to form naturally.

Thanks for pointing that out though, I need to take a look at that.

I don't play games for the people. Yes, it is good to play an MMO with massive amounts of people. But if you are part of a community already, then you just need a decent party setup to have fun. Whats that 3-5 people to get through most content? 

The number of people a person needs with them is irrelevant. The point is that, whether it's an MMO or a local bar, the personal thought or small group conversation that commonly happens matches Meridion's statement.

Agreed, but that is the fallacy that most people fall into when  thinking in terms of online play. My comment was to display that you really don't need a server full of players to enjoy a game.

Vanguard has some good points but it only has 2 servers even after being on Steam. What really gets my goat is City of Heroes was shutdown while doing much better than Vanguard.

So true. Even though the CoX community stepped up to support, NCsoft closed it down in their face. SOE is a hard company to part money with as well. At this stage of my gaming career, I gauge my games more on the companies developing and publishing them rather than graphics and even gameplay. 

If you want another single serving high-fantasy mmo, there are more exciting ones out there than Vanguard. Tried it twice and bored me to tears.

Apologies to all Vanguard fans. It is what it is.

If your going to play a space game, I would say EVE since I never played Vendetta Online. OP, what are you looking for? Do you want to play something with group content and sandbox? Go check out the new Darkfall: Unhollololy whatever. I tried Vanguard ( a few times ) and it was bizoring.

I used to be a big supporter of FFXI, but now its just a xergfest. Get 95, get paper, get armor to get another job to 95 to get paper to get armor- Bizzoorrring.

Wow is just...wow. Its very top heavy now and only a few servers are popping. But its graiding (grinding and raiding) at its finest and their new system of upgrading armor is just to keep people playing. Theme park fun. Because theme parks are fun to begin with. But no one wants to live in a theme park.

There are a ton of freemium games out there. Lotro isn't bad at all. But there are a few expansions deep. Runes of magic has a lot of content, but the cash shop will catch up with you at the higher levels. I don't know your budget, but Rift has some really great group pve content, but the pvp is lacking. It is a sub game with a $30-40 expansion. Try the trial, if you like it invest. It really is a quality game. 

Aion is also a quality sub game, but again, its going to cost you moolah up front. And The Secret World is just a whopping 30 bucks one time onry, Guild wars 2 as well, but 60.

Lets recap:

Cheapo route: runes of magic, vendetta, Lotro, DDO, Atlantica Online (turn based combat MMO that you build your own party, free-cashshop-fun) and most stuff on steam.

Got some loot: EVE, Vendetta Online, TSW, GW1 and Ryzom is only $11.00 (has a great community)

Money is no object buster: Wow, Rift, Aion, GW2

The bottom line: all of these games have group content, just have to find 1) what fits your budget and 2) a group.

Good luck and let me know how your travel went.

Ink!~

EVE indeed does it better than any other MMO at the moment, but not everyone likes to be a spaceship.

 

I've got a keen eye on this game. AA will need to be one completely immersive experience to steer me away from Elder Scrolls Online. I kind of miss being in a spaceship.

If so, I'm out.

It's F2P but those EvE players without a PS3 console have spent a year whining instead of saving up for a console and now feel left out.

Sorry, but DUST 514 isn't even worth the time investment, even if you already own a PS3. Not for me at least.

 

You used the word investment. Can you explain to me, as if I was an investor, exactly why it isn't worth it?

You do realise CCP are aiming at a different market to EvE players, they want to draw the FPS crowd into their game with Dust and  any who want to try an MMO with its slower pace will naturally progress to EvE.

I that upsets you so much, buy a PS3.

Why would they not have released it for console and PC?  seems a little silly to release a game, that is part of their MMO, but not release it for PC..

Firstly, Sony paid them cash towards the development costs, hence PS3 exclusive. Also how long do you think it would take the EvE playerbase to write the hacks and cheats for a PC version.

Quoted for truth. If an EVE play can find a way around it, they always will.

  1. Do you think the developers changed the game to satisfy what they think "MMO players' want?
Well, they have to. A SPRPG and an MMO are two totally different games, types of programming and slightly different business models. The key to a Single player is box sales and the "long tail" meaning sales taper off over time, but still sell. An MMO has to sell boxes and keep that "long tail" of people playing their game and continuing to spend money. Much like DLC for singles, but more expensive and no creation kit, so the developer is 100% for content.
  1. What do you think MMO players want versus what TES fans want?
MMO players just want to have a social experience while TES fans want an immersive experience. It is sort of the same thing, except one is played with other people.
  1. What is more important;  designing a MMO or making an Elder Scroll game?
Making an MMO true to TES lore. The look and feel of a TES game is really dependant upon world building, NPC interaction and of course dungeon delving!
  1. Are you happy to see an Elder Scroll MMO?
Heck yah!
  1. If you compared your favorite TES game to your favorite MMO, which do you think is the better game overall?
No comparisons. All my TES games are so heavily modded that they are custom made for the experience I am seeking. In my latest Skyrim build I have to eat and drink every 10-15 mins. I have to sleep every night, keep warm and really think about my encounters. That is something I would wish for an MMO, but no one can really nail it. The TES modding community did, thats why I was given a chance to build my dream RPG from Skyrim.
