Oct 19th 2010 6:55PM I've been saying since the beginning, this game sounds great, but why put so much development effort into VO when 99% of players are going to be mashing their SKIP button while skimming the subtitles?
I frankly don't care if TOR isn't the most un-WoWlike MMO ever made. If it's fun, it's fun. If it's not fun... Oh boy...
Fantastic article by the way! Massively needs more of these thoughtful, critical articles.
Oct 15th 2010 3:58PM If that picture is the new model, they need to go back to the drawing board.
Who are these people working at MMO development studios?
That elf could be from ANY OTHER ultra-bland, utterly un-stylized fantasy MMO, of which there are tons. This boggles my mind.
It's someone's job to pic an art style and give a game an artistic point of view. Why why why why why! would they just choose nothing. Just generic. It's like they look up fantasy in the encyclopedia and just copy whatever.
It's not just unimaginative, it's bad game design and bad business.
Sorry this is a pet peeve of mine with the genre, and I just can't believe that this lesson has not been learned yet. Your art has to have a point of view.
Oct 15th 2010 12:20PM Hey guys, heard our game's terrible! Have free month!
Oct 12th 2010 4:50PM As far as power sets, can I choose nothing and be batman?

Despite years and years of criticism, SE STILL will not reconsider their communication policies. Just more evidence that SE has not changed and likely will not change.
Just like their development style, they are more concerned with restrictions than potential fun (or communication in this case).

luckiest sob in gaming industry imo
Oct 5th 2010 4:58PM Well I thought only complete morons would buy the iPad, and I was right (zing!).
Only complete morons would buy the Jungle, so... future is bright for panasonic?
Oct 4th 2010 10:00PM Also, wtf is with the Blizzard hate?
I hate Starcraft, but I can still see that it's an incredibly well made game.
You fanboyishness is not welcome here! (by me anyway)
Oct 4th 2010 9:56PM You're looking forward, when you should be looking backward. History tells us that WoW expansions destroy MMO launches.
It could very well be they aren't delaying because of Cata. If Cata is the reason however, it's a very smart move.
You're wrong Dext.
