    I've gotten spoiled by playing games in early beta or alpha, especially games like Landmark. They end up being terrible, and then I never want to go back. I'm probably gonna try EQNext but I think it'd be best to wait until it has been out for 5-6 years before the launch-day kinks are worked out.

    Not a bad idea but by 5 years game will be on the downhill with fucked up itemization due to level cap increases. I'd say 1-2 years is good to start

    I think that's just the standard of SoE. Leave their products under the carpet and hope someone accidentally stumbles upon it.

    That said, I think they have absolutely no clue or plan on how to make these ideas work. It seems that Smedley is just crossing his fingers hoping a golden egg will be laid if he adds a bunch of untested and random ideas into a game that eventually won't be supported a year later....you know sort of like all their previous games.

    All really depends how the game was designed. EQ2's initial design was never intended to go through so many internal revamps and eventually fucked up due to understaffing and trying to place foreign ideas from more successful games into a game that wasn't designed for it.

    Paying for early Access in a alpha/beta build is one of the many cancers killing the industries. I want to go back to the days when Beta actually meant something. Now it just means "hey look how horribly shitty and unfinished our game is."

    Aren't they trying to do a level-less game or something? I don't really care, why do I ask. Still gonna be "levels" of some sort regardless of what you call it or what form it comes in I guess.

    If Eqnext fails and no FPS game is worth a damn (like none has been for the last near decade), then It's back to consoles and Chun-Li online time.

    Yeah I plan to play when it releases, and I expect it to have launch kinks worked out 6 months down the road.

    I mean really, it's a god damn free to play, so hell giving it a try is not exactly taking a wild risk with your money and time.

    I personally thought the combat was more of the same that we've seen recently. The secret world, the free to play neverwinter game, wildstar, final fantasy, they all have had the telegraph "action MMO" component going, I see this as more of that.

    I actually did like what they were thinking of for the class/gear system. Seemed like it could provide a lot of "sidegrades". That being said I still expect them to fuck it up.

    But hey, maybe they'll surprise us.

    Star citizen FPS is going to kick ass I think. Hopefully it will be out and playable by november or december. The teaser looked amazing though.

    November 11th, the Master Chief collection. Play Halo before Reach came out and the downward spiral began.
