Some of us actually want good games to be released, as opposed to falling into decline due to rehashed mechanics, developers not learning from mistakes, rapant fanboyism and money getting gained out of the bright eyed hand over fist.
That said? This was a good idea. Let's see if people take the liberty to read the comment start to finish.
Mar 1st 2012 8:13AM After Warhammer and TOR, if another property I like goes into that kind of gamut I'm /done/. So tired of seeing the things I like get mishandled, even if it's their own property.
I think that's what has me feeling apathetic at best over this. 6 years ago I really wanted TOR to come out (official announcement date) and after all that's happened...well. It's essentially been a 6 year facepalm in the making. Which is still an artfully done facepalm, mind you.
I began ME back when it was still an X-bawks exclusive and played the bejesus out of it, and love the series that much. Going through another 4+ year expecting good only to be let down would just break my wittle heart.

Time will tell, but currently some future players are shaping up to be good doods all around.
Valve, Riot, Trion, Arenanet. These are companies that show compassion for their craft and love for their playerbase. Hopefully the next gen of devs will follow their example with mmos and community management.
Still looking for a great game to role play in, though.

Feb 24th 2012 1:20PM @Rialle This is a comment I'm going to have to check back with in due time, all things considered...

1) This is the Hero Engine's creators tooting their own horn, not Mythic. The criticism comes from how idiotic a story this due to TOR's use of an ALpha version of the same engine, success or no be damned.
It does show that this flew under the downrating commitee's radar and that there may be foul play afoot when it comes to every ToR-mentioned article here.
2) On that note, maybe you should actually try it out before criticizing others who are either in the same boat (and are no better) or have actually played the game proper.
Gabe from Penny Arcade, for example, is done with it. I can actually cite a source here.
and it REALLY is not just him. And when you go deeper down the rabbit hole you can find just how badly Mythic are making the same mistakes they did with War.
The bottom line that you can really get from it all is that ToR is a mediocre game /at best/ that may float for a bit due to it's popular IP, surrounded by a myraid of awful business decisions and piss poor community (and community management) that make small flaws and eyesores look much worse.
It /could/ be fixable. Just how much needs fixing is up for debate.

One could probably argue ToR could get away with that due this being in Space and day/night cycles may differ on other planets.
Let's see if Mythic uses this as a valid excuse.

EXACTLY. HOLY CRAP.

It really is, since Mythic is the one at he helm of this. The same that cocked up Warhammer with the Exact. Same. Bugs.
Feels like an insane person saying this. Soylent green is people, etc.
Feb 22nd 2012 8:35PM @(Unverified) George retired months ago. I'm not even sure he has *anything* To do with Star Wars anymore aside from being it's creator.
And still he gets unnecessary blame by the rabid mass. Unbelievable.
