now wait for them to come after you, they will, soon..

 

AV shown us countless times how flawed they are as company from businessmen to programmers. They had a great vision but never knew how to deliver it, just like Starvault. I don't know how people still give them credit (me included) . i did once again, got to beta and realised how stupid ive been haha, they just CANT do things right.  Its a shame, really.

thats kinda funny, i never heard about virtual height fear. Ask someone to jump for you, then you continue after that.

I agree, but I still put my faith into a non mainstream youtuber over mainstream anyday, sure you will get shit reviews from both but more then likly you will get a real reviews from a gamer that players a game for fun over profit.

 

Or again, how about just listen to what they are saying and watching what they are refering to and then make the assessment as to whether or not they are beign critical/honest (because remember, they might honestly like something that someone else might not) and then see if they hit the mark?

I can't say I'm a total biscuit fan as I've only listened to a few of his reviews. as far as this one goes, I didn't agree with some of it such as the combat though he seemed to go back and forth on that based upon different experiences. However, he indicated that using a vehicle as a weapon was a nice fresh change and that getting one early in the game felt like a good step forward. That seems pretty "right on the money".

His critique of the inventory was definitley my assessment as well so that was on the money.

His indication that it was a shame (paraphrased) you can only have access to two of your weapons when you have many in your inventory seemed genuine though I can see arguments on both sides.

Each time he indicated his displeasure he gave examples and the examples were pretty straight forward. Each time he indicated his pleasure you the audience could see it first hand and agree or disagree.

from what I saw of the first half of the review (before my adobe flash player crashed... and it's been doing that a lot lately) it was pretty mixed with pros and cons. At no time did anything ridiculously bad happen where he praised it for being great or vice versa.

It's pretty much a running commentary on exactly what was happenign in the game at that point compared to some of his other experiences in another immpressions review.

i've seen far poorer reviews on The Escapist, or IGN or... well, this site. Not to insult anyone.

 

I do listen, what turned me off is his lack of knowlage of the game, like the AI and lack of understanding and simple logic as to how MMO start off, he was fast to make judgement before he even knew what the hell was going on, I know first hand that this games AI is no joke at higher level (ego), I know also how and what my ego points do and how to work them, also know and understand the questing and the instant dungs. this dude (TB) was talking out his ass, just for a fast buck, I am willing to say that maybe 50% of what he was saying was true, the rest was bullshit.

TB did not understand, he didn't even give more then 2 hours of play. he had a 70ish ego and that takes like what 1 hour if that. TB needs to stop making videos untill he has put time into a game, I will hear his thoughts when he makes a video with no less then 400 ego.

TB is a money hungery joke, his reviews mean jack shit to any real gamer that puts time into learning and understaning a game.

You lack logic in your thoughts. WHY  would a "real gamer" that already knows the game go after previews and reviews about the game HE ALREADY KNOWS ?!  TB videos, as any other "preview" or "review" are targeted to people that doesn't know shit about it. If you think you can do a better job explaining  it, make one review yourself or at least give a comment on his videos saying what is wrong and what is right. Maybe he will edit it or adress it in another video. Share your knowledge as well, heck, make a thread here. Why go around insulting people that (probably) you don't even know. 

I don't know SHIT about defiance but i'm mildly interested in this game and thought his video was good, as others stated, he goes saying pros and cons based on his likings and criticising the game as a product. He was honest imo, with or without full knowledge about the game, he (as any of us)  can always have an opinion and is free to share it. 

I was almost certain to buy it after his video, but i was planning to go with PS3 version. The problem is, the lack of buzz and feedback on the PS3 makes me cautious. 

care to elaborate in why its awsome ? 

 

what does make you engaged ?

Im interested in this game, as a ps3 game. Any of you are playing it on ps3 ? 

 

Whats your thoughts about it ? how the game handles communication ? is a headset a must have ?

 

Worth Buy?

is this a one server game, across all 3 platarforms ?

AoC has one of the best classes ever, the barbarian.

 

I miss those fatalities, maybe i will download it and give it a go.

 

Is the F2P very restrictive ? is it worth our time, for real ? 

i kinda agree with you.

MMOs are a HUGE "waste" of time, especially if it's a good one, you may spend half a day playing it without notice. Sorry but unless it's work/school, you shouldn't be doing the same shit half your day in a regular basis. You will enjoy it, but its not healthy and can lead to frustration/regret afterwards. But one does what one wants to. 

I'm trying to get away from MMOs, but look where i'm posting just now lol.

I wish i had spent less time playing MMOs and more time finishing other titles. I missed a good bunch due MMO "addiction". 

Why disliking something makes you a hater ?

 

i mean, i've talked bad about the game around here, because i'm a hater ? NO, i have a opinion about the game and its not good. Should i keep it for myself ? NO, forums exists for a reason. 

So... yeah, you can enjoy Dust but the game is kinda boring, unbalanced and feels dated. Every AAA shooter on the PS3 can top that and with Killzone 3 MP free as well, Dust may have a hard time.  And i gave it more than 1 try, i even forced myself to like it because i wanted to be part of EVE's world since i can't get into EVE itself. 

Thats my opinion, you are entitled to your own.

You can dress a mmo with the setting you so desire but if you have a strong game series focused on freedom of choice, seamsless open world, deep character progression, insane replayability and AMAZING modding community that pull off better mods than no expansion can top, there is no way you can pull it off using the same mechanics as every other MMO out there.

If there was a MMO that i was so eager to play  it was the TES mmo, but now they are releasing a generic crap with looks and names pretending to be a TES game. 

 

I dare you to name 1 freaking game franchise that comes close to TES in the RPG genre. There are better games, but none so epic and so open as TES. 

So yeah... TESO will be just like LOTRO, they will pack a pickle with chocolate wrappings. But hey you can still enjoy your pickle.

Very well said. I couldnt agree more.

 

One thing that is consistant in a discussion about TESO is that people keep bringing up DAOC.

DAOC had RvR, Realms, Faction Locked Zones, Classes, etc. Great. So what? I dont care what DAOC has.

This isnt Camelot. This. Is. TAMRIEL!

I dont care if there are similarities or if you can tweak and rework the Lore to make it work and fit together.

This is Elder Scrolls which is a unique and ORIGINAL IP. All on its own.

To change it in any way shape or form is doing it an injustice.

Especially as a base to remake/relaunch a 10 year old game that, in its heyday, was popular with only about 250k gamers.

 

An Elder Scrolls MMO shouldnt "remind me" of things done in DAOC, or WOW or GW2 or any other game.

An Elder Scrolls MMO should break new ground. Be a true "Next Generation" MMORPG. One that evolves the genre.

Not just rehashes the same old thing done over the last decade.

 

Lets see if you understand some basic concept here

Does it have "The Elder Scrolls" as part of the name? Yes. Then it is a TES game. I dont really care if you like it or not, if you play it or not, you prolly feel the same about me, but... the fact that you like it or not doesnt really mean that it isnt a TES game just because it doesnt fit YOUR idea of a "TES game". Is WoW a Warcraft game? Yes. Does it seem anything like the other warcrafts? No. Is it still a Warcraft game? Yes.

As much as it pains me, the Cayenne is a Porsche - it doesnt fit MY IDEA of a Porsche, but it is!

Again for the ADD crowd: Does it have "Elder Scrolls" as part of the name? Yes? Then it is a "TES" game.

Thanks

I guess you understood our point but is playing the dumb card. 

They will release it as a TES game, so itll be a TES game. At least for history purpose. 

We are talking about the gaming experience. With the features announced and the info we have i can surely say this game is no "TES game".  Just another generic crap mmo, it might turn out a good game, but its aimed to be a generic crap. 

A TES mmo deserved better.

wow, they are getting good.  I guess Henrik is getting lessons from Tasos, hell, he may be even teaching him already. 

it won't become the biggest mmorpg around because, imo, its not a TES game at all.

i thought this was about TESO. 

 

Terrible video, has nothing to do with TESO and has no value in it. Everyone is entitled to an opinion but this guy has a freaking terrible one, he can't even communicate properly. Talking about what is and what's not. 

The game is bad, the shooting is awkward, the graphics are kinda washed. Not fun enough to play actually. 

 

If you own a ps3 and want a good shooter there are better options. I can't see why anyone would play Dust instead of Battlefield 3 or Killzone 3, unless you are a EVE player who will earn something through it. 

B2P, thats what TES fans are used to. 

Thats the trend and the only way for the game to have a healthy community since release. 

P2P is not possible anymore, unless you are a indie developers catering a niche.  

Mainstream market is long past P2P, if you don't think so, look at the last major releases, what payment model are they using ?

...The MMO genre has very much been "bastardized" in a matter of speaking; those who started in the 90s or early 00's typically loved MMOs for what they were...  

Agreed. There is a huge gap in mindset between the people who played mmorpgs before WoW, versus those that started after. WoW signalled a massive shift in mmorpgs; games became much less hardcore when levelling and far more accessible to casual players. That was a good thing in many ways, but a bad thing in others. People talk about wanting the good ole pre-Wow days, but at the same time I think their memory is biased somewhat: they remember the good things more than the bad.

MMORPG.com has a lot more of the old school players, so you are going to get a different perspective here than from the mmorpg player base as a whole. The problem is, making a game that appeals mainly to old school players probably wont be financially successful, especially for a game like Elder Scrolls which has a huge player base, most of whom are not hardcore PvPers. There is no way that ESO will put years of development and  tens of millions of dollars into a game with limited mainstream appeal. That may be what the old school players want, but its not a viable business model for a game with widespread appeal like Elder Scrolls.

Plus, when you listen to the old school players talk about what made the games they liked great, they often dont agree. They have many different wants and perspectives. It wouldnt be possible to design a game for them because there is no one game that would satisfy most of them. They will complain about what the game companies do, not accepting the fact that investors arent going to fork over $100M to design a game to appeal to 100k people. A smaller indie company might spend less and target that nicke market, but not a game based on Elder Scrolls. I am sure they are aiming for 1M+, and you wont get there by designing a game for hardcore PvPers. First and foremost they need to satisfy a large chunk of the ES/Skyrim player base, and make sure that the game is appealing to a wide variety of players. They say max level can be reached in 120 hours and that is obviously aimed at casual and semi-casual players.

By the way, I am an old school gamer, but have spent decades in the business world, I dont let my gaming desires blind me to the financial reality these companies are facing. Like it or not, WoW has revolutionized the industry and greatly upped the curve in terms of $ and polish required to publish a game, and massively changed the playerbase. Any game aimed at mainstream players would be foolish to ignore that.

Great post!

 

MMO devs have to match their expenditure in designing the game to the amount of players (and money) it will bring in.  Otherwise, disaster.  If SWToR had been made at a quarter of the cost, it would have been a raging success.  I think your reading of the business goals of TESO, based on it's major IP, is probably quite accurate.  I do think that some of the development in the MMO will be helpful to the next Elder Scrolls game (art assets, world design, etc),  which could spread out the usefulness of the investment.

 

However, folks tend to want things perfect, out of the gate these days, and compare any new game to those with many years of refinement and expansion.  So, even developing specifically for an 'old school' market, you run in to competing ideas of what's acceptable for modern 'old school' design.

 

I just can't get your link between old school and PVP.  Old School mmo design was about a Virtual World with or without PVP. PVP was always a major part because as in our world conflict is constant. Thats it.

Ryzon for exemple is old school like without a major PVP system. 

 

The elder scrolls series was always about freedom and immersion. There was the main story, it was a single player game afterall. But the main story was one of the main parts of the game.  This TESO  will be just like any other mmo, with The Elder Scrolls name printed on it.  

 

You nailed it. 

Really, your title +  the OP are so full of truth. I hope you were joking though. If you were "acting" it was brilliant, if not at least you were capable of showing one of the problems within the mainstream mmo trend.

But we usually do pay, so if you really loved DF1, buy it, log in, have your fix and log out. 

The beta is unstable, meant for testing really. I have no fucking clue how those guys planned a november release with the game in the current state. 

The game was always in a releasable state since the 1st video you saw. DF wanted and still plan to release the game with incomplete feature and some bugs here and there. Some bugs and some incomplete feature are not game breackers. We played DF 1.0 beta for 2 years and we had so much fun so this is not gonna stop us from enjoying the game.

The real and only problem currently and the reason why we're in debug mode with very small patch instead of small to big patches, is because that one bug is the most game breacking. Once you get that bug, you dont want to play anymore, you just think about quitting.

I think everyone knows what that bug is. The bug that cause your inventory and your bank to be completely wiped out. You restart with your starter items and thats it and i think we still dont know what cause this exactly. We thought it was after a crash, but no. Even if you quit correctly, you may log back in and lose all your stuff. Its so random and annoying.

Sure, a mmo with persistence problems is very releasable. 

I will not talk further into it, but there are MAJOR problems. But the game is good. Just not ready yet. 

 

So... thats why i keep saying, buy it but don't expect a playable beta. 

 

both games are a good choice. 

TSW is heavier to run though.

I guess you should check every game feature and details, compare them and see wich one you would like most. 

not for this game, neither for any other.
