not enough shit on fire
Enough blue glowies for you though Fed?
They can't even do cutscenes anymore. Their last best efforts were incomprehensible car racing and some chick hiding a potion from werewolves(???).
I confess I haven't played anything of Blizzard's since I bought Warcraft III. But I remember... I'll never forget.
A demon-possessed man returns to his castle and stabs his father! But we're not going to show you that. Here are shadows.
A city gets completely destroyed and all of its inhabitants are burned to ashes! Here is a sandcastle.
This is the the best comment from YouTube's first page:
Meanwhile, Blizzard uses its vast animation department to make cutscenes of a woman falling asleep as her grandfather reads a book.

Here's an other worldly badass demon slaughtering an orc and human warrior! But we're not going to show you that. Let's cut straight to their lifeless hand.
Oh shit how are these two orcs going to kill this invincible demon who shrugged off their strongest stuff? Oh, he stabbed him with a sword...
EXPLODING HIPPIE TREE
Third time will definitely be the charm for a Square MMO.
As long as they do another open beta I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.
Business wise, SE is a class act with how they understood the game launched as crap, kept extending free play time, and are shutting it down and redoing the whole thing instead of going piecemeal while charging players.
Bioware on the other hand cant admit they screwed anything up, concluding that the only reason their starwars MMO failed is because it cost a monthly fee.
When your game sucks so bad that only armageddon can cleanse it.
As someone that was really interested in The Old Republic, but hasn't tried it yet, the emaciated free-to-play option hasn't even enticed me to try it.
I was selected by Bioware to beta test SWTOR in closed beta a while ago. It was doomed from the start, and pretty much everyone except the die hard Star Wars geeks knew it. It was just so linear/cookie cutter and had waaaaaaay too many problems for a game that cost that much, and took that long to produce.
I could go on, but there's nothing I could say that hasn't been covered in volumes in game reviews.
Why do these things get released in pairs? SWTOR and The Secret World: both MMOs that should have just been released as single player games.
hooker, I'd recommend you take advantage of bioware's idiocy and play the solo content (basically all of leveling to 50) for free. Beyond that there's no point in playing.
That reminds me, I need to check out the progress of SWGEMU. I think they were in Alpha testing last time I was on. I'm curious how close they are to Beta. They've done an amazing job of re-creating the server-side code so far.

so is that the first spell? damn these games set one up with such expectations now.
Sorry. "go against their hype routine" of releasing a game play teaser before or without a pre-rendered cinematic.

Doodoodoodoooodoodoo DOO doodoo
Was that magitek armor?
oh god it's happening
THEY'RE GOING ALL IN
IT'S THE FINAL FANTASY
I'm still a shameless Final Fantasy fan, but I hate MMORPGs and am glad that FFXIV got such terrible reception. Maybe SE won't want to make another one.
Then again, they made a direct sequel to FFXIII, which had absolutely pathetic sales for a Final Fantasy game, and now they're making a sequel to that, and have completely remade Final Fantasy XIV, meanwhile Versus XIII doesn't have a release date after seven years of development, Kingdom Hearts III has yet to be announced, and FFX is getting a remake while FFVII isn't.
So who knows what the hell they're thinking anymore.
Well there is the "remastered" FFVII coming out for PS3...
Lets not forget about that Chrono Trigger remake that they killed with lawyers.

I would have been more excited about the merger announcement if I knew it involved the Death Star destroying Disneyworld.
Boy, this makes Star Wars Episode III look like The Star Wars Christmas special!
By which I mean, it's ugly incomprehensible garbage
"People who liked this video also liked: Ziggy cartoons"
It makes Episode III look worse?
Hey, if you remove the plot, characters, settings, excessive CGI and bloated universe you would have....well you would have a decent soundtrack.
Wow, these guys have the worst astronomers ever. Wow, these guys have the worst diplomats ever. Holy shit, they're riding Digimon. Wow, these guys have the worst armor ever. Wow, these kids have the worst parents ever. Well, it's pretty obvious this civilization should have never existed this long anyway. Wow, these guys had the worst battle strategy ever.

Final Fantasy VI was such a great game.
Now if only SE would jump onboard the retro-bandwagon and make a new 2d FF.
Chrono Trigger, Parasite Eve
Name the last two great games Square made that died from total shit sequels.
"Now if only SE would jump onboard the retro-bandwagon and make a new 2d FF."
So the game shut down, got remade almost completely in a couple months (graphics engine aside), and relaunched as a great game that's still successful. They just announced their first expansion.
There hasn't been a turnaround like this for any game, ever.
