I left swtor because I don't like EA's arrogance. (That's just one of the reasons I have.)

As a player I don't want to represent the company as a player if they are going to be rude to competition because that may lead to assumptions that just because I'm one of their players I'd be arrogant and rude to other companies too...

R I P (for me) WoW. I plan to save a panda and buy rift expansion, but blizz has lost this gamer in WoW.

I am keeping an eye on Darkfall. Might give it a go.

I am calling bull shit on her playing UO when it came out.  She is what only in here vary early 20's she would have been 6-8 years old and computers cost a ton back then.  

I was 11-12 when it came out im 27 now and even then I only played computer a few hours a day back then.  Let alone a 6-8 year old girl.   For crying  out loud she is so damn young she dose not even have puffy  bags under her eyes yet.

 

I will give her this she may be 25 but may have not had a drug party life style with rehab  and stuff from 11+. But I gusse thats a good thing not many can handle how I grow up and thoses of us that have and and still kicking look like shit.

As one of those people who followed darkfall for years before it launched, it's a must that I give it a second chance. I can only hope they get it right this time.

Listening to Pokket I'm tempted to play DFUW.

However, I can't imagine Pokket playing DFUW - even if there are unicorns!

@banshe13,

 

I'm 24yrs old and I played UO when it came out. I was 9yrs old and I loved every minute of it.

 

My parents bought the family roughly an $800 computer for the time. I don't remember what make/model it was, but it was a PC :). It plays UO decently, but lagged a little with EQ1 when it released. It also did really well with Diablo 1 :D.

 

Then i got into building my own PC's around 13yrs old and the rest is history for me :3!

ps: My situation may be very unique. I have ADHD so I've played games since I was 2yrs old (yes, 2). Original NES ftw :D!

 

Also, my family aren't richy-rich or anything similar. I believe the household income at the time for us was around 60k a year.

Seeing as how im 23 and I played Ultima with my dad im sure its very possible she did too. Im not saying I was a champ at the game, my dad had to help me do alot but its what got me into MMO's and when SWG came out I played it like Ultima from watching and learning. It was awesome for me as a kid too because my dad wasnt into the idea of playing a pure scifi mmo so it was just me and my friends making houses and having a blast in a star wars universe.

 

But yeah Pokkets actually gotten alot better! I also dont know if she meant to make the joke but when she said the ultima summity would be all "Tea and crumpetS", I laughed cause It seemed like a Lord British referance haha.

 

Anyways awesome episode, I will defiently be checking out more GameFace from now on.

I got to say the cat as a guest star priceless. Best part of the video.   1.4 update I thought a lot of folks would go play, however one look at torstatus.net confirms that most folks are not playing or could care less about 1.4.  I think most folks are really waiting for free to play.  As far as warcraft competing with swtor that is just about funny to suggest that folks would rather play swtor.

Lets see more of the cat, I think hes got personality but so does my cat.

Star wars played like a console game for me. I got to 50 myself then quit. Save your money Pokkett and do the same, they got the dynamics of this game as an MMO wrong and all your doing is helping to fund the inevitable.

Wow classic was amazing the gaming psychology of getting to Molten Core, Black wing, Naxx, AQ40 or High Warlord or Grand Marshal was genius, most know like playing the lottery they wouldnt achieve it, but it gave gamers something to aim for. By making the game more accessible they killed that and killed the magic ingredient as to what made it so good. What can I say - money rules.

Never played Darkfall and have no interest in ever doing so.

Currently playing Guild Wars 2. A great game.

How they handle replayability will define its long term success, but developing characters has great potential.

Excellent video, nice touch with the cat, making it look unedited, which I highly doubt it was :)

Nilenya writes: She could have played UO from around that age, why not? My family had a pc for the family since I was 8 yrs old. I played UFO when I was that age, and I had my own pc and played Everquest 1 when it came out in 99, as a girl, there werent many who played at that time, but, my friends mostly all had pc's back then. They were not that expensive. I think they were called 486's or pentium something :) - girls played UO and EQ for that matter as kids- dont be prejudiced as to what girls find entertaining at that age.

emperorwings writes: First hour, pandodria world crashed afew times, had afew chat issues and the whole screen was just people couldn't see or do anything lol. Couldn't tag mobs, couldn't do quests due to the amount of people that were on the screen. About a day later the world was deserted with not one person there and half my guild was 90 and talking about raids. So, that was like hello GW2 again I'm not going anywhere. More blue hair too and get hair extensions and make it longer and bluer lol. Sun Sep 30 2012 9:30AM Report

Personal feedback/opinion (not suggesting any changes but more of my overall feel of gameface)

Call it stereotype or biased judgement but a girl and with funky hair no less doing a game commentary video kind of makes it hard for people to take it real seriously. Most biased viewer will mostly conclude that it's just a marketing gimmick to get more viewer. This is further enforce by the content of most of gameface episode which cover more mainstream mmo like wow or tor which doesn't really hit the right note with the majority of the community here at mmorpg.com, this is base on the popularity of those mmo at the ranking table. 

While adding coverage diversity like ultima and dark fall into the coverage seem like a good move to balance things out but ultimately the lack of depth of the coverage and actual gameplay coverage add to the biased perspective that this is only added to provide the vet mmo vibe for marketing purposes. Another point that reinforce this is the usage of friends gameplay/feedback etc to provide opinion further diminish the seriousness of the coverage.

Generally i feel the low view count may be due to the above factor which in term translate into the out of touch with the community of this site and various mmo only site. This show will fare better (again in my personal opinion) at general gaming site like gamespot or gamespy where the community is more mainstream.

*PS this is just purely a personal opinion so don't waste any time or energy to try and troll it. Personally i would prefer this to be a private feedback.

I'll stick to Wurm online.Atleast they can honestly claim to be a sandbox unlike DF.To me,any game that revolves around just one aspect of gameplay doesn't deserve to be called a sandbox.Sure it has Sandbox elements,but it's no UO.

I don't know if anyone else had this problem,but i couldn't stand Mortal Online.

OK love the outtake with the kitty. :)  And also you were in frame the whole time yay!  Nice improvements overall since you've been putting these out. 

Never played DF and have no interest in FFA full loot PvP games since I'd be the idiot losing his gear every 5 minutes.

Meridian 59 would argue that it's the first MMORPG, but unfortunately I wasn't into MMOs when UO first came out so never played it.

Was going to go back to WOW until I found out that they ruined the talent trees IMO.  The lack of choices aka dumbing down just ruined it for me.

As for SWTOR, no matter what they put out I don't see myself going back to even when it goes FTP.  I just don't like the game mechanic choices they decided on using and like I've stated before I get awfully tired of the VOs after awhile especially on the side quests.

But he also used to sit in my lap while i played games. From M59 forward.... I would tell people from my other account when he got in groups he wa sonly 3 and could not type yet so they would under stand why he would not reply to things they said to him. Im 48 now and still playing games everyday. Mon Oct 01 2012 10:18AM Report

Pokket writes:

@Stravas I'm not here to spell out games for everyone, I'm here to cover the news. If I had to describe every MMO in moderate detail, then my videos would be a lot longer (a huge gripe I had before). The good thing about MMORPG.com is you can look it up rather quickly and find out for yourself ~.^

 

@Banshe13 I played when I was 12 years old. My step brother played when he was 9. Don't really see the big deal here.
