    I knew this would be shit from day 1.

    I just plan to completely ignore this game upon release and pretend it never happened.

    At this point it just sounds like a hyped up ripoff of diablo
    If anything Diablo ripped off the elder scrolls.

    It will be interesting to be able to walk all around of Tamriel though.
    That's pretty much why I want to give it a try, to see the places not seen in the other Elder Scrolls games.

    are you implying that a traversable map of tamriel in the skyrim/newer than skyrim engine wouldn't be good?

    I'm saying that playing a shit game that does X thing, instead of playing a good game that does X thing, just because the former has better graphics, is retarded, dumb, stimulates game industry in the wrong direction and everyone who does that should be ashamed of himself.

    Shame TESO is neither. Heroengine is fairly slow and the game itself doesn't look very TESy.

    but it sure as hell looks better than daggerfall from a technical standpoint, even if daggerfall is a better game

    25-player dungeons where players can utilize a real-time combat system.
    Does that mean it'll be more similar to TES, or is it simply saying that it's not turn-based?
    Also, shacknews isn't saying that they think the game's terrible, they were just saying that they were disappointed in the lack of content that Zenimax showcased.

    It's real-time in the same sense as WoW, as in, you get to press buttons but not much else.

    This is pretty pathetic honestly. Considering what they could've done by just adding multiplayer to Skyrim, even just like small 4 person multiplayer, would've been amazing.

    Does anyone know why nobody make "sandbox" MMOs? It would sell well. I mean, EVE has still a shitload of players (enough for the devs to still earn money while making only free updates) but every WoW-clone is basically failing. How can game developers think that doing this kind of generic fantasy shit is a good idea?

    In my mind, the only purpose of playing an MMO would be that everyone does what they want, not just dumb quests in coop.

    They used to. SWG is a perfect example of a good sandbox MMO, shame it's gone now. Theme park MMOs (WoW clones) are really boring to me. I think GW2 is going to be somewhat sandbox though, which is promising.

    SWG had specific places dubbed "themeparks", like the quest chain in Jabbas palace that slowly let you work your way up the palace interiors and eventually work for Jabba himself. In my opinion, that's as themepark as any MMO needed to be -- a side attraction on the road, much like an actual themepark.

    DDO had some pretty fun combat. You actually click every time you want to attack, and you could move around while doing it and dodge.

    Too bad nobody picked up on that.
    It would have been awesome if you could actually dodge melee attacks as well.


    Daggerfall.
    Uhm, no, it was Arena that had the entirety of Tamriel, not Daggerfall.

    Pleeeaaasseeee.
    I hope it fails horribly so that they realize it's a fucking stupid idea and instead implement a co-op for their future fallout / elder scrolls title and add co-op to the previous titles aswell.


    But they won't.

    I'd buy that day one.

    Yeah. Although the team making this isn't Bethesda, Skyrim would have sold a shit ton more if that team of 250 was spent making a better engine that could stably support coop.

    Instead we get a WoW clone.

    Edited:

    Bethesda isn't making this, so all anyone can do is get mad at Zenimax Online.

    That is something we need to change.” But a lot of people see the action bar and see it as something that’s bad, because they picture rotation’s going off – you know, these long chains they set up – as opposed to what we really tried to do with it, which is, you can’t pause combat during an online game.

    Its bad because its just a reskin of every other mmo...

    That's an awfully pessimistic title for ShackNews.
    Doing them a favour, I think.. The less hype this game gets the "better" it will turn out to be; it's still going to be shit, though.
