This is something they stated/have shown they are addressing. Whilst the game can be played like DA2 with the action combat, they have re-implemented Top down tactical view, and want the combat to be able to be played either way or a mix of both. They are also removing health-regen to try and add a layer a difficulty on top to the combat.

DA2, ME3 and swtor's memories doesn't allow me to get this game..

Sorry Bioware ,, i blame EA instead :P

R.I.P.

 

As someone who was also badly burned with DA2 and the ME3 ending, I was and still am skeptical about DA3. However, I have done a decent amount of research on the title and it seems like they are trying to redeem themselves with this one.

 

 

All in all, whether or not they do is completely up to them. I can't say I am not glad to see race choice and tactical combat/view back. I like that they have stated they are going to put more emphasis on follower characters personalities and dialogue, as well as make the relationship system more in depth. I like that they stated they are not going to be doing DLC followers unless a request for it is made long after the games release. The new game systems do seem interesting.

Time will tell whether or not it turns out to be true, but they have peeked the interest of someone who wrote them off for DA2/ME3's ending.

 

Oh, hadn't seen that part anywwhere, will keep a tentative eye on it in that case! Cheers!

Who really cares? It's one guys opinion and, if your enjoying the game, it shouldn't affect you. Are people today really such sheep that they cant make their own opinion, or that they change their mind based on some 'celeb' review.

Does the game have problems, yes. Does it also have potential? In my opinion, yes. Personally I think AJ comes across as a stereotypical 'ADD console gamer', and the majority of his viewers are likely to have the same views and interests in games as he do, so how many of them would buy, and enjoy, the game anyway?

Whether its gone down in price to £20 at one retail store or not is irrelevant. It could be this particular store bought alot more stock than it needed and is trying to get rid of it, even if its at cost. The price at Game's online website is still the same and the price in the Game store I passed this morning is still the same.

Considering the chain is only recently out of administration after closing over 2/3rd of its stores neither the fans or the haters should be reading so much into this.

P.S. even before release could get it on key only sites for £20-£30, just as the same sites are offering the likes of Titanfall for £28.99, and Dark Souls 2 for £24.99...oh no, they must be pants toooooo!!!

someone's going to have a break-up when the Sword of A Thousand Truths goes missing...

So glad I'd put my coffee down just before reading this! :)

You people are hilarious with your anger and bias towards F2P MMO.

You are putting words in my mouth again. I never said that, however i did specificaly talk about those who call "F2P' garbage without realising that all these F2P MMOS were P2P once and still have option for paying monthly sub.

I think you should take your own advice regarding 'english lessons' and try not to read things which i never wrote. This topic wasn't about what you like or dislike but a simple notion that  a MMO that you have been paying for months or years suddenly becomes garbage because now it is F2P eventhough it is essentially the same game.

And yes i still play Rift regularly and it still gets same amount of care and attention from Trion as it did before. I could care less for forums since they do not represent thousands of players in game.

'Nuff said. There's a reason the word fan is derived from fanatic and you're a prime example. I'm out.

Free-to-play is just a trash mmo, as far as I'm concerned.  The MMO industry is littered with this trash, atm.

Ha!! that's funny.

You know that all these F2P MMOS were P2P MMOS once? so if ESO also goes the same way and turns into F2P i guess it automaticaly become trash MMO? eventhough it is pretty much the same MMO with a new business model?

You people are hilarious with your anger and bias towards F2P MMO.

Actually to use Rift as an example, no its not pretty much the same MMO with a new business model, the entire feel of the game changed, the focus of the dev's became creating cash sinks/shop sales, not content.

Personally I don't feel anger towards F2P, I simply don't play it. You people are hilarious with your loaded statements towards sub games!

I don't use, and won't ever use, a Kindle either as I prefer the feel of a real book to text on a screen, does this mean I hate Kindles?!

Never made a single loaded statement. However people with bias towards F2P MMOS forget that all these MMOS were P2P once and still have option to pay 15 bucks a month.

You mentioned Rift and it is still the same game. Nothing has changed about it other than an introduction of in game shop. it still gets quality and regular content updates. Infact you can play it withuout spending a dime on it. 

Thing is you people are so biased towards F2P games that this simple logic escapes you that same could happen to ESO. Its more like a hipster thing really to hate on F2p games.

Actually your claim that anyone who dislikes the F2P model is a biased hater is a loaded statement. Also there's a small number of P2P games that have gone F2P, and many more that started as F2P, so again your making incorrect sweeping statements with no basis in fact.

I played Rift extensively both pre and post F2P and I assure you it isn't the same game, read their forums and you will see that even current subscribers state this.

I haven't said it can't or won't happen to ESO, merely that if it does I would choose not to play it, exactly as I did with Rift and SWTOR, both of which changed substantially after going F2P (although SWTOR's problems went way beyond that regardless).

Oh, and here's an english lesson for you, F2P is a viable business model that I choose not to play, therefore a game being F2P has no discernible impact on me which means no bias exists, guess you need to find another word of the week to try make people who disagree with you sound unreasonable.

Probably a combination of L2P and laziness, I saw it alot as I recently re-subbed (stopped playing mid cata) and got all my char's up to 90 ready for WoD (which actually looks playable so far!).

Its not just limited to dps though, seen some real shoddy tanking and healing, e.g. ran a dungeon with a shaman healer who was asking why he kept going out of mana, how he should be healing, what spells he should use.... basically his entire class.... I pasted the link to icy veins resto shammy page and his response... "wha fools got da time for dat, i aint reading any shit to play!"

I am confused why you style your original post as a opening to discussion though, you have clearly made your mind up and other peoples opinions aren't going to change that ...

 

Perhaps, I committed an internet faux pas in creating a thread for the sharing of views without an invitation to fight everyone over them? ;)  When dealing with a subjective opinion I can accept that there isn't always a more right or wrong and I was / am genuinely curious as to what others came away thinking about the game. I listed some of my opinions on it. I invited you and others to share their own related to mine or not as you are entitled to hold them and other issues may be more important to you. Simply because one is of firm mind on a matter or disagrees with you doesn't make sharing pointless. It's not a competition save that for the game it's learning. I can't help but feel that comparing opinions from differing points of view opens up a broader perspective on a subject matter. It's not like this thread is all about me.

 

When the thread was initially created the forum was a bit of a mess (more so than usual) as the NDA had just fallen. They way things were spiraling off topic and being spammed repeatedly a thread where people could collect themselves and present their opinions under one banner without threat nor mud slinging seemed like a good idea... So here we are for better or worse.

You seem to be reading alot more into my comment than intended, not sure why. The purpose of a discussion is to reach a decision or exchange ideas, this thread isn't a discussion. Everyone who posts is going to either validate your opinion or disagree with it, its very unlikely it will change anyone's feelings about the game or make them decide to buy/not buy it.

Considering the site its posted on you could have posted 'ESO is a game!' and it would have still got spammed with negatives.

So what your asking for is every swing and attack to have a visible reaction and in principle I completely agree with you, however if every two handed attack staggers the npc that 'should' mean that every two handed attack by an npc (or another player in pvp) staggers the player too. How quickly would that descend into a flamefest if players were constantly getting knocked back and being unable to counterattack because they couldn't or wouldn't use the ingame blocks? Combat would be limited to heavy attacks and blocks only.

My opinion disagree's with most of your points, I will agree that the base box price is too high. There are 20% and 25% off options which address that though. A few people have also mentioned inventory space and it is limited, however during the last beta I created a dark elf to try the starting area and ran across a bag vendor who sells additional inventory space, guess I must have missed that on previous plays!

I am confused why you style your original post as a opening to discussion though, you have clearly made your mind up and other peoples opinions aren't going to change that, just as I have made my mind up based on playing it myself and have fun laughing at all the 'F2P in 6 munths!' posts from disgrunted, penniless haters! :)

P.S. Also have to pick up on one of your points "and class balance is a work in progress", show me one MMO where class balance ISN'T a constant work in progress.

As for TESO, the budget by Zenimax is humungous, estimated at $200 mil + advertising / publishing.  The final value approaches SWTOR levels of $300 million after it's all said and done.  Expectations for TESO to deliver are extraordinarily high, whereas Wildstar has no such huge expectations to amaze the masses.

 

So the term "fail" is relative to the game being discussed.  They are not very interchangeable at all, like you would believe.

Estimated by who? Some random guy on twitter that has no connection in any way to Zenimax or ESO. Matt Firor has categorically stated that it did not cost $200 mil, or anywhere near that. Sure they could be lying, but who's more likely to know, the people making the game or someone who relies on headlines and controversy to pay their bills.

Regardless of who actually said it, the quote seems to fit the definition easily, the way I see it. The official definition states "extreme foolishness or unreasonableness." Is it really such a stretch to assert that doing the same, exact thing over and over again and expecting a different result, would fall into the realm of being... "foolish and unreasonable?" It's implied, therefore the quote works -- despite it not being the literal definition of the word.

Wouldn't it depend on what the 'exact same thing' is though? If you drop a 6 sided dice (or even a coin) from the same hight, held in the same manner and onto the same surface then you would expect to get a different result the majority of the time. :)

Your poor attempt at trolling, sorry I mean comparison, isn't valid for a number of reasons. The most basic one is that your comparing the totality of sales for SWTOR to a percentage of sale of ESO at a fixed point in time, in other words wait till 8 weeks before console launch, add the numbers together and then compare....
Alot of very good games there, especially Pillars, Witcher 3 and Torment (with quests/story written by Patrick Rothfuss!!). Lets hold off on the zombie/alien apocalypse until mid 2015!

Other games might have dozens more skills to fill your bar but how many of those skills are actually used?  Taking WoW as an example, hunters pretty much use 9-10 shots in a typical boss fight, even less on trash, same with paladins. Death knghts (frost) use even less!

Having a limited amount of slots isnt a bad thing as long as the skills you can choose from are all viable, you just may have to think about how you spec and play abit, unfortunately that seems to be difficult for some....

After playing beta, and being a longtime Elder Scrolls and MMO fan, will definitely be buying and playing, as will my girlfriend, for as long as its subscription ofc, f2p is the bane of all enjoyment for me.
While I have always been a huge fan of Final Fantasy games, and played FFXIV, the first thing's I always remember when anyone mentions Final Fantasy are the 'One Winged Angel' and 'Those Chosen by the Planet' score's used to announce and say farewell to Sephiroth. For a game series to include music that is instantly recognisable to millions is amazing!
