The Witcher 3 will probably have a few DLCs so I think I'll wait for a while for it to go on sale. No use in buying single-player games at release in my opinion, they only get better with time. I am intrigued with the open world nature of this game, the linear nature of the first two put me off.
But if you like the studio and want to show your support, you buy it at release like I am. Also if you don't want it to be spoiled for you, youp also buy it at release.
I think Everquest Next is the game I'm probably looking forward to the most next year. Though SOE scares me and I'm wary about it being f2p. I'm still on the fence on Wildstar. I'll try it though for sure.
For me blade and soul CN is next and then hopefully EQN wont disappoint. As a f2p game, EQN has a lot more chances than a sub game with cash shop.
Also why do people hate SOE, it is like there is no MMO company that players like. Everyone there is something that people just hate about them.
Yeah, but you forget one thing. TESO is a MMO and not a single player game. Even players who don't like Elder Scrolls single player games for example I certainly do NOT like them might try TESO because it is a MMO.
MMO: s have more combat that is what I am used to. Example I have played Neverwinter Nights 1 and 2. While those games have fairly much combat Neverwinter MMO has more combat and rewards really focus on combat rewards.
There are lots of mediocre STORY based Foundry(player created) adventures in Neverwinter. I did tell in the forums what adventures I do like and I also told the cold truth that most Dungeons(very combat oriented) beats easily most story driven adventures.
There you see there are people who like combat. One of the main things about Neverwinter MMO is Action combat.
OMG, ESO is a MMO,weird I did not realize that. ironically, that your first sentence says all that needs to be said about ESO, it seems and feels needless like itself feel it shouldn't exist.
At the end of the day, COMBAT is the only thing that really matters in a themepark, because everything you do is based around combat. IN a game with RvR, combat is kinda important. If you don't think combat is no big deal, that's cool and good luck trying to do other non combat stuff.
I wont get into with you because frankly I don't care what you say, but it seems you are trying to justify a subpar game by hiding behind the fact that it is an MMO, that's cool.
Well I'm not totally down on it. I've also played Wildstar, that game definitely isn't my cup of tea. I'll just say that I don't think the graphics were that bad in ESO (although I do agree with you about the combat and animation). Still, for me I had more fun with ESO than I did with Wildstar. I will say that I don't think current games out have anything to worry about with those two games.
let me rephrase my statement the art style makes the graphics look like shit. It seems so brown and personally the character models are sub par. Wildstar is a art style I like but the character models, are not very detail for me. Ultimately, the reason why I can suffer an MMO is mainly for my character to look as nice as possible, both game character Creation don't do the job and both game more so for TESO than wildstar combat are not that great. Wildstar's problem is that the Global CD makes the combat feel disjointed and each skill doesn't seem to have a lot of weight aka it seems spammy. TESO is just the typical TES combat but worse because it is more of combat game than TES.
