I did not like the exclamation marks and right marks above npcs but this game is so busy it looks like you need them.

Sadly, this video pretty much killed all interest I had in this game.

I just can't do exclamation quest hubs any more.

As an aside, I have to agree with Silverreign, you're trying to hard to be entertaining Ripper. Relax a bit.

Yet another WOW clone, cartoon graphics, quest hub with exclamation points, kill 10 of these, easy crafting, avoid the red square of death game.


Exactly what the genre needed.

Great game, but this guy. This is the guy you all put as the MMORPG official game tester/promoter? Sorry, but he is horrible and as stated above I had to mute him after a few minutes. Never even got to hear about anything past Character creation. Hope he is not hosting the rest of the videos.

The game looks awesome though.

I'll put it this way.  The telegraphs help you learn the fights.  They are so fast that you hardly have time to respond.  Telegraphs or not, you will find challenge in the combat.  I wouldn't cross it off just yet.

black_isle writes: Very enjoyable video as always. Altho i'm amazed everytime how Ripper has no clue about the mmo space. I mean if you don't know about the basic WS mechanics like telegraphs and such by now, it clearly shows you don't follow even a single news from this genre. It's just weird considering he is involved with one of the biggest sites on mmos. Thu Dec 12 2013 11:12AM Report

RipperX: you are trying too hard to sound entertaining.

As to the game: I probably belong to a curious minority, but the more i see of it the LESS i like it.


Some may defence the overall design as "stylised", but i find alot of things way over the top.. pencil waist + badonkadonks etc.

Looks like they couldnt decide if they make "Sci-Fi with WoW assets" or "SWTOR with an attitude".

Any actual source on this information?  I'm guessing not.  I've been following this game for a long time.  I read up every piece of news on it.  And not once have I heard this.  Sounds like you are just making things up.

Read less then 1/2 way down in the article on the front page. He talks about how even in Beta the Q for BG's was very quick. Something about there already being a large PvP base in the game (Beta)

@IamEpitaph All my videos are a bit wacky, watch any from the last 2 years and it's pretty much along the lines of what you see. Love me or hate me, I personally don't care. Cheers.

I don't care what anyone says about Ripper X, I think he's trying to do a good job, and he's funny sometimes. I would prefer to watch and hear a guy like him, making it somewhat interesting rather than a lot of slow typical talkers... 

Looking forward to the game. The whole "let me call this one a  wow clone" thing has been played out years ago. Don't know why people have to keep doing it and saying. This game is nothing like WoW, but there are always trolls out there.

imrobertjames writes: Remember how WoW just took the good aspects of the, what 3 or 4 MMOs, at the time, got rid of things people always complained about, put a bit of polish on it, and released?  Ya, I guess in a way that's what W* is doing when I stress tested, except it's taking all those things wow got right back in vanilla, getting rid of the stupid shit, making combat interesting and basically updating the aged system.  Say what you want, but WoW is the MOST successful MMO to date, period.  No point in reinventing the wheel, but you can certainly make it much much better.  The dialog is interesting and funny, and the path system adds so much to the game it's fantastic, since you aren't quest hubbed into path quests, you basically discover them.  There's a lot more to it than the video shows.  It's going to be big.

When this game was first announced I clicked the link, yelled Ouch!, and immediately hit the back button, thinking this was not something I would ever be interested in.

Since than my hype has gradually grown, and now I'm so freaking excited that I just can't wait. Every class looks sweet, even the high armor ones, something I never usually play. 

Dear Santa, let WS be released soon.

Maelzrael writes: Ripper X, you said the combat was your favorite part, yet you show almost none of it. This video past character creation wasn't very good imho, and as was previously stated, your comedy style isn't very entertaining, it's mostly overdone. I appreciate you doing the video though, I'd just say you might want to take a look at how you narrate these as the way you project your personality is quite a turn off for most people. Just my 2 cents.  Thu Dec 12 2013 4:20PM Report

LOl if you have never seen a RipperX video before he can be a bit over the top.  What he does do though is be excited for the game sis he playing and he does a damn fine job  of pointing things out and keeping people informed and entertained.  If you want fax news to review your games, go ask them.  Ripper is good and I am glad he is doing this.


As for the game, I am looking forward to getting my hands on it.  Not sure if I will love or hate it, but it does look interesting.


Good job Ripper, keep it up.

Ripper has been doing First Impressions videos for quite awhile on this site.  So if this is the first time your seeing it, where have you been?  I've seen him play quite a few really bad games, and still makes it entertaining and tries to be very positive about them all.

I've always enjoyed Ripperx's videos so I say keep up the good work you always get at least a smile out of me every time I watch one.

I think a lot of the complaints may be that they wanted more specific information and I don't think that this is what the intent of the video is. I consider it mostly a sort of "look and feel" video not a wiki or a walkthrough which seems to be what some people were expecting.

Thanks for the first impressions RipperX! I enjoyed the video!

RipperX certainly has a unique way of narrating his videos (he kinda sounds like Phil Plait the bad astronomer). I've grown accustomed to his way of speaking, and I really enjoy hearing the enthusiasm.

Can't wait to see more WildStar!

Nice. FWIW Ripper X is not so terrible - has a good voice for this kinda thing.. Sounds kinda like a DJ or something.


Wildstar looks fun. I like the art style of GW2 better but nothing wrong with the Ratchet and Clank approach - I loved that game..

@redrip: Saying something like "love me or hate me", isn't exactly the right attitude to take when people give you feedback on your videos. It really isn't that black and white.

Personally, I don't hate you, far from it. I just feel you would have a much more watchable channel if you just toned down the enthusiasm a bit. Currently it really does sound like an act, as if you are forcing yourself to like every little thing. It's not wacky, it's just fake.

This is as constructive as I can get, and I really am not hating here, but after over two years of doing this style and only around 6k subscribers gained, might it not be time to think about looking at yourself and your content and see where improvements can be made?

You clearly put a lot of effort into your videos though which is a good thing.

The only things this game and WoW have in common are the art style and the fact that both are MMO´s..
