@Ms. Omega: @Farinele_Etyl: It's extremely disappointing. The game was hyped up for what, two years? Delayed multiple times and the game still seemed un-polished and buggy when released. It seemed that the beta was a waste of time because the same bugs transferred into the full game. My biggest disappointment had to be with the lack of core and travel powers. Three types? Really? Champions Online had at least a dozen and it really irritated me that they boasted the free-to-play subscription for the game and it ended up being priced anyway.

My thoughts basically transfer over for Star Wars: The Old Republic as well, which I believe shouldn't even have been an MMO and merely a single-player game in the manner than KOTOR 1 & 2 were.

@Deranged Midget: The pay to play thing is what really turned me off about DCUO. You can't do all the stuff they said you could without paying.

As for SWTOR, I actually really like it. If I could afford it (I'm not currently paying my WoW subscription. People keep buying it for me despite me yelling at them not to do it.) I'd definitely play it more. I like the aspects of the game. I also really love how they do the instances. It's a lot different from WoW's instances and i think a lot better.

I was really disappointed when they decided not to make another KOTOR and instead went with ToR. I've changed my stance on the MMO a bit due to some of the things I've heard, but I really wish they would consider bringing the series back.

@Farinele_Etyl: I don't know, maybe I didn't give the TOR that much of a chance, but I guess when it becomes free-to-play I will.

@0n1zuka: Yeah, it pissed me off because they're in a huge predicament where they are rapidly losing money and subscribers. If they made the game similar to KOTOR and released it on every platform, they wouldn't have had that problem.

@Deranged Midget: I agree, and I think it would be great if they brought KOTOR back. I could see them starting the game by possibly detailing what happened to Revan and The Exile, and then staring over with a new character in a new situation. It's not like they don't have plenty of material to use in an Old Republic setting.

Of course like most people, it was iffy to change from stealth to pure action, but choosing Platinum games to make the direction was a good choice. 2013 is year of amazing games

Nope. It was wack. What made it so bad was that the game was supposed to be free to play when it was announced and they changed it. The company itself overhyped its success, despite the fact that the game featured simplistic gameplay in comparison to other MMOs (Jim Lee said that it was supposed to be for casual gamers) and loads of other things. When the game wasn't as successful as SOE planned, a lot of the game's key people left the company in shame.

Champions Online was better than that piece of sh!t.

@SpideyPresence: every game has balancing issues , Bf3 had the broken ass flashlight which blinds you in the middle of the day, outside in the sun and explosive shotgun rounds that could clear a whole room with no skill at all. Its kind of bound to happen , just hope they have made it viable to play as a knifer again mw3 nerfed the ability to play as an out and out bladesman so bad.

#285 Posted by SpideyPresence (1912 posts) - - Show Bio

@EdwardWindsor: That's true and i'm not worried about balancing issues i personally think treyarch could do a fairly good job at that. I was hoping for some unique features. For example instead of just dolphin diving you get a choice of what you want to do(Dolphin dive, Roll, Dropshot). Things that would spice gameplay up a little bit more. It's basically been the same since COD 4. It will still be enjoyable but to me it'll get boring fairly easily since it's basically a different version of the same game.

I agree with you the mw3 nerfed the knives pretty badly. Although i hated the panic knifing in BO sometimes xD

Avatar image for edwardwindsor
#286 Posted by EdwardWindsor (14582 posts) - - Show Bio

@SpideyPresence: i don't have a problem with "panic knifing" its just the same as pulling the trigger you time it wrong and leave yourself open. You press the button when you mean to press it so the term panic knifing in my eyes is just people moaning that they wasn't fast enough or wasn't aware that they where in knife range both of which are their fault. But yeah they have scaled knifing back so much recently that to play a decent knife game i have to play previous gens since mw3 knife only is just not as good.

As for the dive option yeah a roll would be nice. i have always wanted a slide in room option rather than running in just run and slide across floor guns facing out but thats never gonna happen.

@SpideyPresence: way i see it if you get knifed by a person you can see you did something wrong , unless its lag which can and does happen quite abit lol. after seeing the hunter killer drone i may skip the rcxd in black ops 2 since it looks like a 3 kill streak also.

Sadly, I have to agree. Champions Online was an abomination. The unbearable frame rate, gameplay that never clicked, and ugly visuals even for an MMO.

The best thing it had going for it was it's massive customization options.

I'm remaining on the fence. Call of Duty is a good game, it always has been, but the sequels have always been quite lacking. Treyarch seems to be trying to change that this time around with multiplayer but I don't feel like putting my hopes up.

Champions was pretty good yeah. I liked the massive list of travel powers that you could select from and unlike DCUO, you weren't restricted to bland power types. The world was also much more alive and with players and in sheer size. When I think about it, CO had even greater customization options than DCUO.

Exactly. I'd jump back on it if I wanted, but I refused to play it free (with the lack of options) and I don't want to pay for it (not at the moment, at least).

I don't know i just don't want another company taking over Halo i felt Bungie had it almost perfect from 1 - 3 and i don't think Reach was that bad.

343 has said they want to explore the characters more and that frightens me. In the trailers i've seen they seem to have made MC a little to talkative in this game. He is supposed to be a man of action and few words. I also don't like the whole idea of Cortanna pms'ing throughout the whole game. Nor do i like the idea of Master Chief taking off his helmet. That should have been done in Halo 3 if anything, not in the beggining of a new trilogy. But that's just my personal opinion.

It's still my most anticipated.

Mate, 343 Industries is populated by the original creators of the first Halo. It can't be in better hands. Like I said before, the Halo Trilogy was fantastic, beyond fantastic actually, the pinacle of FPS games on consoles. ODST and Reach just lost the steam the series had once possessed.

Who said Chief would be taking off his helmet? And if he did, it's about characterization. John in the EU of Halo is an interesting character. In the games, he's bland and boring but badass. Add a personality and he'd be a worthwhile character to represent.
