Writing in orange doesn't make your comments any more valid. I did NOT insult sandbox players. I DO prefer sandbox games.




And I wonder why I'm even bothering to reply. Here, have another grinding wheel, your axe is getting a little blunt.



And I am pwned by English this morning.

You have to buy the Guild Wars game (and any expansions you might want). After that, you can log in and play anytime you like for nothing.


I've owned GW for a number of years, despite what one commenter seems to think, and I go back to it now and then. It's just that it's not new to me.


I'm intensely puzzled as to why anyone thought I was suggesting Cabals be cross-faction. What I *did* point out is that having multiple cabals is going to be difficult for a number of guilds, because it makes it more difficult to maintain a sense of internal cohesion. If people are scattered across several groups (even just 2, I've seen this in WoW), then the meta-guild itself doesn't hold together as well.


 


I never ONCE suggested cabals should be cross-faction, and I'm a little irked that this is what the comments devolved to. However, I should know better by now than to be irked. /shrug


I'm amazed anyone thought I was suggesting cross-faction cabals.


And in any case my tenure here may not go on that much longer, so maybe the next columnist will be more to your tastes. ;)


@Ph33les -- "I just wish you wouldn't dismiss things as though everyone else obviously holds your opinion as well, because honestly, that's just too much of a gamer cliche."


 


I think that's rather unfair. I don't dismiss anyone else's opinions. However, I *am* paid to write about my own, and if I spent all my columns disclaiming or considering every other point of view, that's all I'd be doing.


 


You are of course entitled to your experience and your own [insert whatever]. I'm equally entitled to feel you're being as unfair to me here as I try to be fair to other points of view. Difference being it's mine they hired me to write about, so that's what I do. Not sure what else I could do. /confused


@Storm_seer -- I played a few persistent worlds in NWN. Immersion in those depended a great deal on how the world had been built. Some seemed to be little more than MMO-attempts, but the better ones had a level of GM involvement that you simply can't get in a standard MMO.


 


I loved NWN, but I don't use those persistent worlds for comparison with MMOs because they're not close enough to do so. Doesn't mean I didn't have a great deal of fun running my own (and other people's) stuff. :D


@MMO.Maverick -- my membership here long predates the column I now write, and my handle here is the one I've used on the intertubes for much longer than I'm comfortable admitting. I wasn't desperately keen to use my real name for the column, but it's policy here and I do see the sense in it (mostly). Changing my profile name to match my column authorship name is probably something I should do, but... I don't particularly want to.


But we're not here to discuss forum handles. ;)


Hah, so it is. Not my doing. I don't navigate to the comments via the forums, so I had no idea. But at least it makes some of the comments here a lot clearer to me. ;)


@MMO.Maverick - Sorry you were disappointed! I've covered a lot of what you mention in some of my older columns, and I don't like to rehash too much. Besides, there's only so much you can get across in ~1000 words. I'm constantly surprised at how short that really is, when I'm used to the freedom of going gigantic walls of text on my blog.


And again... this isn't news. It's opinion. It's what I do here. For news go kick Bill, he's the one with his finger on the pulse! :D


Limited though character/storyline choices are always going to be in an MMO compared to PnP, simply because they have to be scripted (at least until we get Wintermute running our games :P) it's a good thing that BW is trying to give us more of them. Hopefully it *will* be possible to go through the story once in one way, and then again with an alt in a completely different way.


I just hope that works out in practice. Most really good MMO improvements tend to be incremental anyway, so this is a start - if it works.


@Distopia - which is why I write an opinion column, not a news one ;) It's what they pay me for.


I'm ambivalent. Yeah, to some extent I would want to be frothing about it, because anticipating game releases is part of the fun in the MMO community. I frothed quietly to myself about the latest Dresden book release (and promptly devoured it in a few hours *burp*). I don't much froth about movies these days, but the point to me is that it doesn't come down to just interest/no interest. There are degrees of interest and I'd like to be more excited about SWTOR than I am.


That said, since it is pure opinion, you're perfectly entitled to your own - as long as I get to have mine. :D


My opinion column has nothing to do with this site, nor did I read the forums before I wrote it. (My days of obsessive forum-reading are long, long gone.)


And that's just the point: there are quite a few of us who would *like* to be frothing about SWTOR but aren't, and those opinions are formed just as yours are: from what we've read and what we've seen. Not being as excited about it as you doesn't make what our concerns less valid.



Originally posted by hardicon



I do hope swtor is a great game though, I hope it sells lots of copies, I hope they make millions of customers happy, I hope it competes with wow for sub numbers, simply because this industry needs another major successful game....



 


That I entirely agree with - I've said it many times elsewhere, and I wish I'd thought to say it here. I absolutely do want SWTOR to do well, because the industry needs another big (if not whopping) success. But I also know that pre-release sales aren't always a good indicator. I'll be very interested to see where they are 3, 6 and 12 months after launch -- and at some point on that timeline I'll definitely be playing it for myself.


@maplestone - there were (too many ideas) and it did (read oddly). I knew it at the time, I just hoped nobody would pick up on it. Curse you! ;-D


@maplestone -- I knew someone would pick me up on that one, and you're right of course. The hobbits are a perfect example of non-destined heroes. I was simplifying for the sake of ilustration, and I do know Tolkien's stuff isn't easily reduced (hell, I started a Master's degree on LOTR years and years ago, but that's another story).

Isabella, that TSW invite is never coming.  In fact, I heard they scrapped the game and decided to put the funds in Age Of Conan 2.  But staying on topic, AOC2 should have really good voice chat.



 


Pfft. You're not getting my beta spot that easily. Nice try though! ;)



Originally posted by Luxumaru

I can't emphasize enough how much I hate voice chat. I avoid it whenever possible but I can't explain why I dislike it so much. I just can't fathom what's so hard about typing. It was fine before what's wrong with it now?

 


I was the same at one point, as I wrote here earlier. However, there are useful practical reasons for voice chat (coordination in dungeons is a lot easier, for example), and I've discovered that with the right people, it's great fun. Note that I still type-chat a great deal, but I am slowly rethinking my original loathing of voice chat. :)


Still waiting on a single woman to post that this is no longer an issue.


Just sayin'.


As the author of the column, I can assure you I'm not bashing WoW. I've been playing it again for 7 months now and I'm having fun. Being aware that dailies are intended at least in part to increase player retention doesn't mean I'm hating on the devs; that's a fairly simplistic point of view.


 


I've never hated on Blizzard and I'm not about to start, or any other game for that matter. That doesn't stop me seeing and thinking about the negative aspects of certain decisions or game systems. Enjoyment doesn't have to be blind. But here, have some more soma.
