Not this year unfortunately. They just started making the engine a few months ago. I think that want to be in beta by the end of the year though (last time I checked)...

Stargate Worlds is also coming, but again, not for quite some time...

Hey Magus, actually Brad recently said SOE has been funding VG (Sigil has BEEN out of money) and that Smedley was trying to buy them more time but Sony Pictures wasn't having it and wants to see some cash coming in.

Sony Pictures has nothing to do with SOE. They are a seperate Entity, they do no rely on eachother nor can they force eachother to make moves. The only Sony Corp HQ is the only one who can force another division to make moves.

- Explain how the game is too "easy", remember to make such a statement you should have a basic understanding of the game mechanics.

- Every player I know in the game is above the age of 20 so your comment is a broad generalization reflecting a narrow experience with the game.

- Duh, it was an obvious troll post! But I love the game and it seems from my perspective that you never gave it a chance because of a preconceived notion, which I think is a shame.

paranoid much?

So there is a problem with me not liking a game? Let me guess. We are all suppose to like World Of Warcraft now? Tell me how that makes sense? I even stated I think WoW is a good game for some people. Thats not enough for you?

So again. WoW has great art direction. I love the way the game looks. I played it for a month and got bored. I never felt challenged. That and I just simply didn't like it. No, I will not waste more time on it to "give it another chance". Thats absolutely stupid to even bring that up. I'm sorry I never received the memo that I am suppose to like every game that "Ninjaman09" likes. If that "offends" you in some weird little way I'm sorry. I didn't know simply not liking a game was a crime.

Example:

"You can play as one of three races - the Cora, a mystical, magical elf-like race..."

http://www.tentonhammer.com/index.ph...rticle&sid=651

/sigh

There could be alien races, androids, "synthetic humans", those warped by radiation, and many other options. Magic just isn't needed and unexplained phenomena need not be labeled as such.
Have you checked out Tabula Rasa by NC Soft? I'm really hoping to get in on the beta...

Meanwhile, I am thoroughly content with Eve Online

Well... since I despised EQ... You probably won't like what I like.

I'm looking forward to Hero's Journey, if it ever gets out of vaporware status.

The main reason is because it's not a "whack a mole treadmill" game. The quests are more like mini adventure games (which is the main focus... "not go kill 10 rats for 10 rat tails crap"), and every player is focused upon being "the hero". Cool beans, if they implement it right.

Here are some (old) interviews that explain why I like the concepts a lot:

http://rpgvault.ign.com/articles/621/621907p1.html

http://rpgvault.ign.com/articles/624/624609p1.html

Also these guys just sold a license of their engine to Bioware for their MMO... so that tells me that if Bioware thinks HJ's engine is good enough for their MMO... there's got to be something good there for us.

This thread made me laugh.

"All MMO's are now baby-school weak. The only good MMO's make your eyes bleed and force you to eat glass. In my day we had to walk uphill in the snow 5 miles *JUST* to log in."

Shut the F up you stupid elitist retards. Games are suppose to be fun, not torture.

I agree with this completely.
SWG is still the most fun I have had in an MMO from the MUD days through UO and to today.
Pre the jedi cop out, pre the CU.
The whole pvp dynamic with imperial-rebel-covert was awsome, the housing was awsome, the different progression and class options were great, the fact that you could just hang out in a cantina and bs was great, the varying world and how huge they were was great, the housing was awsome, the character customization was second to none, the fact that you could just take almost any item and use it as deco in your home was awsome.

I'm a closet Star Trek nerd.

I cannot wait for this MMO and I am praying they do it right.
