I cancelled my sub for SWTOR and subbed to FFXIV because I was so sick of Bioware's and EA's nickel and dime tactics. I swear, every UI menu in SWTOR has something that relates to asking you to spend real cash. It absolutely and constantly destroys any possible immersion, not only that but for my $15 sub I get zero content updates unless it has to do with the cartel market (SWTOR's version of a cash shop) or unless it's a paid min-content xpac. 

 

Compare that to FFXIV... Huge updates with their patches, and I don't have to pay for them outside of my sub. They actually seem interested in listening to the community instead of trying to turn them off by orienting the whole game around a cash shop. Best MMORPG choice I ever made was canceling my SWTOR sub. It was a huge rip off, and I regret the large sum I spent in the cartel market, hoping beyond hope that my contribution would go to creating content updates that focused on something outside of the cartel market. 

My problem that I've been noticing lately with the graphics in MMORPGs is just seemingly lazy design. I always see hairstyles that go into clothes and it's so annoying. Textures popping into other textures is something I can't seem to excuse, especially if I'm paying to play an MMORPG.

Rummor confirmed.

 

I feel for those who wanted this game to be a reality... But I'm actually really happy because I sub to SWTOR and have become increasingly frustrated with Bioware and EA and how they manage the game. Hopefully this means more actual content instead of so much focus on the cartel market.

I don't think any type of moderation powers should be given to users... Even in the off-topic forums. It will be abused, I already know it, as I've seen people abuse any amount of power they have over others time and time again. People will just bury stuff because they don't agree with an opinion or their questionable "morals beliefs" (aka bigotry/etc.) will come into play. Just my opinion on the matter.

Why is this so hyped... Most likely it'll just be another crowd-sourced game via Kickstarter or Early Access on Steam, and won't be out for like another 5 years, or even never. If I sound bitter about Kickstarter and Early Access games... I am. So sick of seeing crappy, unfinished "indie" games bloat the market. I haven't been able to find a decent RPG to play in months now because studios that make AAA+ games apparently aren't in the game-making business as much they used to be or something.

 

Now we get tons of unfinished messes begging for people's money so they can finish their mess in twice the time it would take other developers. The Witcher 3 can't come soon enough for me...

Kotick must be creaming his britches raking in cash hand over first on a game that requires as little budget and (programming) talent as Hearthstone. 

I'm 21, don't blame it on younger people. I don't see how anyone would pay for Destiny with everything missing from it that was originally promised, not to mention the awful story. I attribute that game's success all to marketing, and zero percent to actual quality. As for HearthStone... Played it for an hour or two, and in that time alone it became repetitive to me and I haven't played it again, so I honestly don't understand it's popularity either.

Maybe the general population loves super-simplified versions of game genres, seems to be what Blizzard does well (that is, simplifying game genres with their games). I have a hard time seeing how more people didn't get bored with it as fast as me, but I guess I'm not in the majority.

You people are hilarious.

I mean, I know opinion can't be "wrong" but seriously... ya'll are so obtuse. 

If anything, both Destiny and Hearthstone prove how amazing and fun / addicting the core gameplay is - despite the obvious flaws and shortcomings.

This whole "deeper and more complex is more fun, despite not being as fun to play..." 

Umm... fun is more fun. Period. 

Blizzard makes fun games. Bungie makes epics... like Halo, Destiny is just the start... it's also their first "MMO" if you want to call it that, they've got a lot to learn with managing player expectations. 

Nothing is missing from Destiny that was promised. Not one thing.

The story, the lore... is presented in the way it is (or NOT presented) for very obvious reasons.

They want players to explore the Grimoire and piece together the tidbits of lore/story into a grand picture - you should check out the Reddit Destiny community, so much theorizing and discussion on the very nature of the story and characters in this amazing sci-fi world Bungie has crafted.

Just because it isn't presented to you gift wrapped, painfully obvious enough for a child, and because they DON'T give you all the answers - in fact they give you very few..

The mystery, what they don't/haven't told us... is what makes it so good. 

Dinklebot is bad though - at least 9/10 times it's just... bad... some great actors don't translate well to being great voice actors.

 

Apparently you haven't witnessed the videos in-game (before the game was out for people to play) with things being said, like, "You can climb that mountain over there," and then when people actually went to these same places, you could not go and climb that mountain or explore. One of the biggest lies told was how "open world" Destiny was. Take  look at the following video to see what I mean:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9YoJjdEBv8

 

Also, having to look on a website for lore because it basically doesn't exist in-game, is not my idea of great story development. I mean come on, the number of times an NPC basically said, "I can tell you about this sweet thing that happened in the past, but I'm not going to because there's no time," was just plain ridiculous. Awful writing, and extremely unsatisfying ending to the base game.

 

Don't get me started on the repetitive combat encounters. The number of times you have to protect Peter Dinklage from waves of mobs... Good gracious. Bosses are also just freaking bullet sponges, making combat un-challenging, and adding to the repetitive nature of the game (just adding more health to a boss in harder difficulties isn't exactly an inspired stroke of genius).

Ohhhhhhhhhhh, I see. Like you mean becaues they didn't put a huge mountain range in the way that prevented you from scaling it, it's not an Open World. Literally, and I'll say it a little tongue in cheek because I can't say 100% for sure, there are zero MMO games out there where you can simply run on for ever, indefinitely. There's always something preventing you from going any further. The fact that they built down instead of up doesn't make it a "Non-Open World"

 

As far as lore, I don't disagree about the laughable commentary. However, it was a creative choice. If you don't see the reasoning then let's explain. So we're in, say, Call of Duty. People are firing at us. Our Captain decides to launch into a 5 minute diatribe about who it is we're fighting and why they're bad and who we are and what we're doing there and what's at stake. All that and it basically amounts to "Blow stuff up and kill everyone". There are no political consequences, or world-changing events that are going to take place due to your acts. It basically amounts to "You didn't kill everyone, so you lost.... sorry." Destiny does offer a ton of content on the backend as far as story goes. If people don't know it's there, they should solve that problem. However, delivering the depth of story that is delivered via Grimoire wouldn't be don't right in-game anyway. 

 

Repetitive combat encounters compared to what? I think that there is actually a tremendous amount of diversity compared to some FPS games. If you say that bosses are un-challenging I would say that you've either never played it or you've played it entirely too much. My guess is the former. Yes, bosses are bullet sponges. However, the encounters themselves are so much more difficult than every other FPS I can think of, that I can only assume you've never actually played it. Unless you glitch it, the boss fights are almost annoyingly difficult at times. Like bullet sponge or not you're not killing them. So this simply compounds the fact that they're bullet sponges. I would go as far to say that even with 25% health, most players would have a great amount of difficulty clearing higher-level group content and bosses.

 

 

 

The fact that you just excuse where they blatantly lied about the game's world tells me all I need to know. Destiny can do no wrong in yours eyes I guess, so there's no point in continuing this discussion.

The fact that you believed the literal interpretation of someone talking about a game world, tells me the same. I'm not suggesting they were wrong, but I'm saying that if your idea of an open world must be specific to something that's endless and, obviously, procedurally-generated. Sooooo, Minecraft. 

 

The maps themselves are the largest in the genre. Although the story content is quite linear, you can go and do whatever you like on those maps/planets whenever you want (minus having to actually have already visited or unlocked those areas). Soooo, I'm not sure what you're expecting. 

 

Oh! And how can you say that the developer is lying? You actually CAN go there. If you survive the fall off the cliff, then you'll be able to go there. I personally guarantee it. Do you have some proof other than some guy jumping off a cliff any dying that you can't go there? 

Yeah, I can't take you seriously at all now. "The devs weren't lying! If you survive the fall that no one survives you can go explore that far off place in the distance!" Yeah, okaaaaay.

Don't get me started on the repetitive combat encounters. The number of times you have to protect Peter Dinklage from waves of mobs... Good gracious. Bosses are also just freaking bullet sponges, making combat un-challenging, and adding to the repetitive nature of the game (just adding more health to a boss in harder difficulties isn't exactly an inspired stroke of genius).

The sad part is that AAA+ MMORPGs are still possible if done right. I believe SWTOR's failure (largely the fault of Darth Lucas, who demanded the game be ready a year before it really should have been released, not to mention the exceedingly poor choices made with the game, such as using  a tweaked version of the Hero Engine, which to this day causes problems with the game) to be one of the saddest MMORPG failures in recent MMORPG history. 

 

Sure it hasn't failed financially since it went "F2P" (more like monetized to the point where even I, as a subscriber of the game, feel like I'm being ripped off by things such as not even getting all emotes for my sub, something extremely important to me as a role player, and not only that, but I feel like I have "Give me your real-world money" ads everywhere due to it seeming like everything, from bag space, to the speed that your mount can go, has been given the option to be bought with real money), but it certainly has failed many people's expectations, and it's obvious EA withholds from funding the game's development to the extant that it should. I honestly believe EA only gives Bioware the bare-bones minimum, and it seems like at this time, that funding only goes to the cash shop and for paid content.

 

Anyways, end of rant, the point is this: AAA+ MMORPGs are still possible. Why there hasn't been more success stories is largely because of how companies have handled the process, in an attempt to copy the success of actual success stories, like WoW. Instead of focusing on creating their own success stories by making their product as best as they possibly can, they just go for the shortcut and end up creating their own failure(s) in the process.

Kotick must be creaming his britches raking in cash hand over first on a game that requires as little budget and (programming) talent as Hearthstone. 

I'm 21, don't blame it on younger people. I don't see how anyone would pay for Destiny with everything missing from it that was originally promised, not to mention the awful story. I attribute that game's success all to marketing, and zero percent to actual quality. As for HearthStone... Played it for an hour or two, and in that time alone it became repetitive to me and I haven't played it again, so I honestly don't understand it's popularity either.

 

Maybe the general population loves super-simplified versions of game genres, seems to be what Blizzard does well (that is, simplifying game genres with their games). I have a hard time seeing how more people didn't get bored with it as fast as me, but I guess I'm not in the majority.

I view the lack of hype as a good thing... I used to get hyped for MMORPGs too, last one being SWTOR. I finally learned my lesson though. Hopefully this means others have as well, and games won't be sold anymore based upon hype.
People shouldn't blame Trion for AA's payment model. It's pretty obvious they have zero control over how the game is micromanaged. Just look at two of their other games, Rift and Trove. Both payment models are more than fair for F2P players. AA's payment model is all due to the greed of XL Games (or whatever the company is called).
I hate to be a downer, but this sounds seriously unhealthy and unsafe. Really, Michael Parks, you don't need to give yourself a heart attack on the communities count. I mean 35 hot dogs? That's beyond excessive.
Weird and unexpected news... Not sure if this is a good thing or not. SOE was already flagging in my opinion. Maybe this is what they needed.

I understand it's the same company, same IP, you can argue it's the same game, same deal etc, and that's fine, but even in that event you're mistaken. Saying something "was funded by Kickstarter", when the funding was unsuccessful and no pledges collected, is a mistruth. I'm not defending the game, I don't like the game, I don't play the game, but in this event, you did indeed convey false info.

http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/382040989/xsyon-apocalypse/

That does explain things, and as he was banned for posting misinformation, in this case, about the whole kickstarter thing, then it does kind of put things back into the correct perspective. Having said that, a permaban for that single statement, which in all probability was the result of a genuine mistake on the OP's part, does seem excessive, particularly as they seem to be still in ignorance of the true situation.

Yeah,  I just knew that they had a Kickstarter. I assumed it was successful. Surprise to me, guess people are smarter than I give them credit for.

I am not really familiar with Steam community, I still use the forums haha.

Banned by whom and from where?

Valve and ALL Steam community pages or just for that particular game?

Just from the Xyson forum by a Xyson dev. Sorry, the title may be misleading now that I think about it (I just naturally assumed people would know what I meant, since this sort of thing isn't very uncommon with Early Access games).

So, I warned players before buying Xyson that they should probably know that this game has been out for a number of years already, and even had a Kickstarter to continue their development. I saw their move to go to Early Access on Steam as a money grab in all honesty, but here is my reply to someone telling them how they had been on Kickstarter, and I'm being told I was banned permanently for "posting false information."

 

And here is a picture where Xyson itself announces it's own Kickstarter:

If nothing else, Steam's Early Access program has given the people a look at how quite a lot of developers lack any moral compass when it comes to getting their game an influx of cash (look up other Early Access games, and you can see how developers work reviews so a large percentage of negative reviews are flagged, even though they are legitimate reviews and usually have more up-votes and other people's agreement than the positive reviews, and at how they delete any negative posts on their game's forums, no matter how slight, even giving out permanent bans to the people who post them). It's rather sad and has made my disdain for the Early Access program only grow.

Yup, called it. They're going for the slow SWTOR model where they milk players through the cash shop while also providing players with an option for a sub (with your sub being pretty useless besides unlocking certain things so the game isn't annoying to play), and paid content updates.

It's really disgusting that this is becoming a trend. When people pay a monthly sub they should be seeing monthly content updates (and no, cash shop updates do NOT count).
5 vs. 5? That's putting small scale into a new level of "small."

Really? Guild Halls was something that was supposed to be released with the original Guild Wars 2 release and they promised they'd give it to us "down the road" (apparently three years later counts as "down the road"). It was heavily implied that it wouldn't be locked away behind a pay wall since the devs kept screaming that there would be no expansion (even though many of us continued to beg for an expansion anyways).

Not an extremely classy move in my opinion.

Where did they EVER SAY GH would be in game? They said they would like them but with the way the original server system was, there was no way it was possible.

Another poster who can't read - maybe and would try = it will be in game at the beginning.

Remember Guild Wars is NAMED FOR THE HISTORY THAT A.Net developed for the GW Universe. Have GvG and GH in GW1 was just happenstance. http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Lore

"We will introduce player housing at some point after launch, and at that time we will also implement guild halls." 

gw2 threads are always so fun

Thank you so much. I could have sworn that they said that, but I couldn't find it anywhere. Excuse me while I go edit my original comment again. I was actually correct.  So there you go Guild Wars 2 crusaders.

A forum moderator probably asked someone pushing a broom next to him how he should answer the question. This is hardly an official answer. haha. Oh my word you guys have to be kidding.

This was an answer from an ArenaNet representative. I think it's funny when someone finds the proof you people ask for and you still find a way to discredit it. GW2 crusaders aren't coming off as desperate at all.

Here's the entire quote: "He mentioned that there will be no Guild Halls on release as we want to make Guild Halls a great experience and not just a "place". We will introduce player housing at some point after launch, and at that time we will also implement guild halls. "

Notice how he said sometime after launch. It's now sometime after launch. Notice he never said "for free" or will be a part of the original game. That was your expectation based on what you read into it. Maybe it's realistic or maybe not, but it doesn't really matter does it? Because you've been raging and ranting about the game since a month after launch. At some point when you complain about everything a developer does then the complaint loses any impact.

What exactly do you hope to accomplish with these rants? People who don't like the game aren't going to play it anyway. People who do like the game aren't going to be swayed because your personal expectations aren't met once again. If you hate the game so much why even post about it?

"Sometime after launch," doesn't mean three years after launch in an expansion. As this was said in beta it suggests after the game goes live and actually launches.
