Nov 9th 2011 4:57PM liking the look of this game and Red 5 founders CV.
chalk me up as interested...
Nov 9th 2011 2:29PM from the headline it appears their business plan is the same as the new world order :O...
Oct 25th 2011 7:03PM i think its about time we stopped listening to a 40 year old comic book geek with his one good story behind him in relation to what the current generation of gamers should find "cool".
chris metzen is one step removed from someones embarrassing dad who put old heavy metal on when he picks up his teenager and their friends from school, argues that its good and tries to act "down with the kids".
Oct 23rd 2011 7:45PM i think people need to take a long hard look at just how short-changed they were with the last expansion before they hand over more cash...but then they probably (in the majority) won't.
how many rehashes did u get this time ? how many raid tiers ? hmmm? hmmm ? some on sheeple!
the last expansion, designed from a business standpoint to draw old players back and increase player retention was an unmitigated disaster in terms of fulfilling its aims.
WoW died with Arthas and they should really quit poking it with a stick to simulate signs of life but then the only other alternative they have is to come up with something original....which blizzard is, quite frankly, shit at.
a play for the asian market ? where they make 6% of revenue and play a poor 3rd or 4th fiddle to indigenous games which are much, much bigger than WoW but unknown in the west and that ironically already have their own "kung-fu pandas" ?...its bullshit and a play that reeks of desperation to appease unknowing shareholders and suits higher up while they try and get "Titan" out the door (which being a "blizzard original" is very likely to be shit btw).
WoW used to be "cool". "real men" (well maybe not but y'know what i mean) wanted to play Orcs, Forsaken and Dwarfen warriors or valiant Human Paladins, and even the vicious NElfs of WC3 (which have never been given their due in WoW) now....now if this was 2005 again i wouldn't even pick this box up in the store.
watch the trailer again. even its own trailer tries to coast on the basis of what WAS.

except wow doesn't have "subs" in asia and only makes 6% of its operating profits there. the substantial loss of western subscribers is a far bigger deal than you realise.
and as for having the "whole market to themselves" that's just nonsense. utter nonsense.
WoW is placed 4th-5th as an MMO in China and there's a huge drop off behind the leaders. its basically a niche product and sits well behind behind indigenous competitors many, many times its size in terms of player numbers.
oh and PS the Japanese are insane for Star Wars btw.....
Oct 3rd 2011 1:52AM "Man, I'm telling you, I got a bad feeling about this drop."
Oct 3rd 2011 1:49AM tbh i'd rather they spent the money on making content as opposed to letting metzen fulfil his fantasies of hanging out with (aging, like himself) rock stars
