Sep 16th 2009 6:04PM Eager to try out the dynamic of ship combat balanced by planet based missions. Plus I'm a sucker for astronomy, so a game that lets me explore space and other solar systems is intriguing.
Mar 29th 2009 10:44AM I was one of those people who never played a MMO before WoW and never really had interest in this genre. However, I was a huge fan of the Diablo, warcraft (RTS), and Starcraft games Blizz put out. So due to the great rep and my past experiences with there games (and familiarity with the Warcraft RTS) I looked forward to this new game, not really knowing what I was getting myself into... +4 yrs later I'm still playing...
Therefore, from my point of view it had nothing to do with timing, luck, or lack of competition (EQ2 released around the same time). It was solely Blizzard having a very well known reputation for making great games and using a familiar IP. This opened the door to tons of new people who never tried a MMO before, giving this new Blizzard game a go. Not to mention they just simply made a great game which was/is very easy to pickup and get into on top of that.
So it was name recognition (both in company and IP) and great game design. Could it happen again... sure thing, but probably not anytime soon as it would take an established company, well known to make good products (just not in the mmo genre but outside as well) along with a familiar IP to make it happen. The next closest thing to this that I know of would be Star wars the Old republic being done by Bioware. This has the makings of what Blizz did with WoW (Well established IP (even more so then warcraft) and a well known quality company making it in Bioware... We shall see...

Oct 14th 2008 5:11PM Yes you are correct that probably most REPUBLICANS are voting against McCain, but for a reason because he has no potential and would be more Bush if he did get in! But most Dems and independents (like myself) have been pulling for Obama since he won the primaries so please stick to your own country's politics please.
I find it funny how some will say he will have failed policies and will be horrible? How would you know? Yes its true must of us are voting for his potential but you haven't been living under Bush for the last 8 yrs or you would understand why we can't afford to keep those policies for another 4 yrs.
Oct 14th 2008 4:55PM Thanks for stating HAAS599, for people to go by the issues, which is what they should do. The funny thing is that you will find Obama is right on them and McCain is 100% wrong, if you can even find what McCain's are since he never really explains his and flip flops daily on them, so please do.
And beyond Universal healthcare (which if you read Obama's proposal, does not mandate you to join, so its not fully universal) what makes him a socialist?
