I'm looking forward to Vanguard and a return to a challenging, dangerous world. And that's what's been missing from recent mmorpgs. They are games, not worlds. Though I disagree with you on one thing, |MaguS|....

Kunark > Velious

I should add, to anyone who's heard of VG and is considering it. Forget what you know, or what you think you know. If you have doubts, wait until the NDA drops and reviews start coming in. Make your decisions at that point. Don't write this one off.
Yea, I have to disagree with MaguS as well.

Kunark > Velious

Tygerwoody, Are you playing any MMORPGs while you wait for Vanguard? Acouple of my Buddies and I are going to play DDO till it releases (nothing better on the market).

And no I didn't solo through WoW as I made sure to complete as many quests as possible, many of which are simply un-soloable. I'm not ashamed of my opinion that WoW is simply the best and yes, masturbation sometimes IS better than sex.

Either way, it always amuses me how these old-school MMO players and EQ veterans can't get no satisfaction in the genre as it is nowadays, always hoping for the grind and the so called "complexity" to come back.

And although I'm actually willing to give Vanguard a try once it comes out, I'm afraid I'll end up with the same sour taste I got during the 2 hours I had EQ2 Trial of the Isle installed on my HDD. What a pile of badly-coded, artless crap that game was!
EQ2 was created by Sony, the same company that messed up EQ 1. I HATED EQ2. It was a peice of crap.

I'm not seeing how you can even use the words "EQ2" and "Vanguard" in the same post when they are just on two extremely different levels.

From a person who despised EQ2 and a member of the Vanguard beta, I promise you Vanguard will not disappoint. (and no I can't answer any questions about Vanguard Beta )

RYL2. Its actually not that good, but it doesn't completely suck. I don't want to play DDO because I'm scared I'll get too much into it and wont play Vanguard.


btw, what is the release of Vanguard? Is it still April?

Vanguard has no current release date, they are aiming for Summer but are not afriad to push it back if they need to. Im guessing Fall...

As for DDO, Its a good game for people who like grouping. It focuses on it alot and is a decent game with some nice adventure feeling.

As for getting hooked on it... I don't think any game would keep me away from Vanguards!

One thing I never liked about DDO is the whole roll system. I'd be more excited about DDO if they used some type of normal system for armor/weapons stats and skills.

$14.99, that seems to be the current standard.

personally i cant get excited about a "spiritual successor" to anything anymore. im sick of sequels and games that are like other games. in 2005 i think there was a total of a whopping 5 games that werent sequels to something else in the pc sales charts. how sad is that?

i dont want what should have been eq 2 or another duke nukem, or another quake, or another swg, god give us new original titles that show off creativity.

no more flippin sequels already official, spiritual, or otherwise.

When they say spiritual successor it doesn't mean it will be a carbon copy of the previous title with some improvements like most sequels but more of a new game with features and things that the original and what would have been its sequel would have had. Plus since its not a true sequel it doesnt share the same lore or world as the previous title so it technically is original in a sense.
