This is going to be interesting to see since it will be a new area. I loved Halas in EQ1 and hope this does the area justice, even though it is New Halas.
damn the graphics still look nice.
TIme to roll a new character ;)
Wow they were lagging at the beggining =P
I don't understand it.. newer engine the better textures and everything looks from close up.. but when you zoom out WoW, GW and all those "old engines" look better for me. it's the same with AoC. Awesome leafs ugly big rocks...
ok my mikstake.. watched the movie for the 3rd time and there wasn't any lag at the beggining. sorry =]
i miss the old eq1 halas. this just wont feel the same...
That is because stylized art uses softer strokes which generally are based on a simpler style. Wow's textures have less detail close up, and look best at mid-range, it's sort of a compromise. Up close they look stretched and blurred but not intollerably so.
Games like AoC and EQ2 use tiling materials and shaders which give detailed information up close but as you zoom out the tiling is exposed and the broader strokes are missing. Thats when the art falls apart.
It's why styalized art games hold up so well over time, there's less detailed information to scrutinize in the textures, and just soft color and lighting. This does not mean the textures are lower quality just more cartoony then photo-realistic ones.
I got happy for a second ... and then i saw 'Sony Online Entertainment " and its logo. Sorry not interested.
So, if Elusivex would see the same trailer, but another logo. The expantion would be ok?
I dont get it, It's like saying a car brand sucks. Even if you pick the most expensive modell.
That is lack of interest in knowing the product. And if you hated soe 5 years ago, i bet 85% of the people working there have left.
Soe only stands for what financial power the company has.
Some players also hates small fee's for alot of extra things in the game. But i rather see that then all the rat's setting up item shops and selling to the players for personal profit. Where nothing at all goes to back to the developing of the game.
I love micro transactions for adventure wings and extra furniture or a nicer horse blanket for exampel. The best thing would be to combine them with very special epic quests for the king of some city to gain faction and at the same time contribute to the game.
But that's just me, and my most personal opinion. If i fall in love with a game. I hate to see IGE get rich while a game slowly dies.
I was expecting to get hooked into comming back with the Halas update and related hype. The opposite has happened this just looks boring.
I understand wanting to link to old halas but compared to the Sarnak city, Neriak etc this just looks boring.
'warspine" Sony ruins mmorpgs. Every mmo they have ever taken control of has gone to crap. So you can bitch and moan about what I said but at the end of the day. What I said has merit.
Get all happy go try it out go ahead! They take something good and ruin it every time. I'm over giving them the chance at destroying a game I enjoy. Nor will I give them money to continue doing it.
I'm still in love with this game though i quit about 2 years ago. At that time, there was no population left on my server..doubt i got any better.
I wonder why the music in EQ2 gets so little credit. I think the main themes and ambiente music is up to the music in AoC.
This game needs more expansions.
new halas aint an expansion, it were supposed to have been part of the game update in December. guess to fit with the holiday event in scenery, and elusivex SOE didnt take control of EQ2 they made it....not that they havent done some poor choices, tho mainly because of customer feedback.
havent seen new halas myself, but ppl have complainted about its size, them claim its a city - doesnt mean that there wont be a full quest line from lvl 1-20 (havent read what intended lvls its designed for...just said based on the newer starter area´s)
tho what ppl talk most about is that they close Freeport and Qeynos as starter city choices.
alien1084 might be one of those happy about next expansion is velious? ;)
