It's a sad sad day for the techno world today as one of the brightest stars was dimmed who fought and served in the company he loved til his last breath. May angels guide you in your sleep you great great man
Jun 16th 2010 2:21AM Star Wars looks interesting HOEVER and this is the big however. Blizzard have turned WOW into a social media making it long standing and a fixed point in MMO's for instance it's community is based on secondary and time based reactions rather than an initial overall reaction for example people at first HATED TOC but that overall thought changed and from being hated it was down graded to lacklustre.
All these new MMOs being released are overlooking how to be a strong contender and that is not the OMFG new Shiny Keys. Blizzard have mastered it by staying in touch with their audience providing them constantly but overall being viewed as entertainers and creators who love games and lore. Not being in an ivory tower and knowing their full names. Kind of like Cliffy B or in a way Veronica Beaumont. I know them in a way and know their personality.
However when it comes to Star Wars it seems to be only going by the Shiny Red Ball factor. It has potential and I certainly will try it, I just don't think WOW's community which is the biggest in the MMO world will shift.
Dec 21st 2009 9:44PM That was effing FATASTIC beautiful even shot by shot VERY WELL done to the creator I heard mike mention it and was quite cyncal at first but Wowsa
Sep 9th 2009 3:28PM WOW I am really upset with the new series it is incedibly abissmal
I loe Felicia and have followed her since Buffy butm problem is with the guild content wise it is really hard to achieve because you either have to make very obvious references or stereotype and generalise, the home grown aspect has faded now and he acting i kinda bad in fact I found it a bit painful to watch and almost skipped its mainly the guy who plays Vorc I find his comedy incredibly dry, goodat prop but not improv
The second is Will Wheton who in general is a bad actor I'm 21 and I love Next Generation but I was so glad that they cut him and so was the majority. I think he is just too villain of the week and in the guild that element seems Bleh
Third is Kim Evey who frankly does not fit the show anymore I loved her in 1 and 2 but now she is too cliche
I always knew the guild would have a short cycle but this is painful as a day one fan because it is almost like a trainwreck just waiting to fall off the tracks
A dissapointted fan
Aug 21st 2009 3:31PM Looks awesome I watched that trailer and fangasmed I would love to plsay but I have to be at un hehe
I will go alliance now lol goblins annoy the hell out of me I have offically been swayed grats to mmo champion on getting it right hehe
hey blizzard pulled a sony
btw a sony is when you announce something but its petty much already known
Aug 21st 2009 3:14PM I hope its less boring than real world Archaeology its mostly paperwork lol
Aug 20th 2009 7:47AM Agreed same here I used to read mags a lot until I realised all the content is on the internet I already give 9 quid a month to blizzard I don't want to make my annual fees to blizzard to 220 quid a year total 260 dollars plus expac packs etc I don't want t turn playing wow into a huge money sink
I have heard of turning things into a time sink but what the hell and plus I am only a student who is also in grahics so most of my actual money goes into technology to prefect my art
Stastically a lotta players are in their twenties and nowadays money is a lot precious especially if you're of a lower class
The 40 quid for a 16 hour live feed kinda ticked me off simply cus blizzard flagged ther community site all for the sake for paying ozzy's bill
Aug 19th 2009 12:56PM Blizzard are actually working with Microsoft on something so hell they must be bankrupt :)
Aug 19th 2009 12:47PM You do realise Blizzard has pretty much 2 developing countries hooked on starcraft the first, In opinion I think Starcraft 2 is extremely lucrative for them as if they mess it up they lose support from their 2 biggest consumer base aka China and Korea.
I am looking very forward for diablo 3
Wow expansion does not interest me one bit now got burnout now but its more of the permanent kind and + its too much of a time sink
It unlikely the new mmos are announced for at least another 18 months but I am intrigued if the rumours are true its a shooter mmo which sounds awesome a lot less grindy than wow as its more pick up ad play
Still I am looking forward to look at the coverage
Aug 18th 2009 8:58PM I thought wizards had their own tcg game
uts bit giid when u instantly get compared to the brunette ron weasley
but gratz guess well at least he got a mac out of it so he can play wow but with the lovely graphic bugs in all their glory
can anyone reply and say what the hell that trophy is it looks like a graphic artist was trying to draw the horde insignia but was absolutely off his face on meth or something
