GameDynamo - "In addition to the hefty, nine-minute video below, you'll also find a bunch of new The Elder Scrolls Online screenshots that show a nice mix of environments, playable races, and threats."
I might play this until Everquest Next comes.
The character design looks bad, the graphics looks poor, the combat looks worse than Skyrim and Skyrim combat was not good without mods, the character movements look stiff, the camera angle look bad, all the characters look way to slim, and the one server concept seems like a good idea until you think about fighting over resources. So yeah, overall this looks bad and that is really sad considering all they needed to do was give us Skyrim with online. Instead the game looks like WoW with a Skyrim skin and that is just not a good thing.
Yeah, MMO's are going to get very interesting when companies stop trying to make the next WoW...if that ever happens. There are excpetions, obviously, but basically if a company is making an "MMO" these days, it pretty much means they're making a loot-based MMORPG.
I think this game is gonna polarize quite a few people. But it's elder scrolls so it will sell like hotcakes.
Every game in the Elder Scrolls series since Morrowind has had gamepad suppprt. If this game doesn't, I will not buy it. I know some people will think I am crazy, but playing games without a pad is a very clunky experience for me.
Some people seem to have thought that Elder Scrolls Online would look as good as Skyrim or Oblivion. While that would be nice it would also be nearly impossible, if not completely impossible. With current hardware that is. Hundreds of players, enemies, effects, and animations all at the same time? There had to be some hits somewhere. For a MMO though the game looks phenominal to me. I only hope that the game is not a boring grind fest. I hate MMO's like that. Hopefully it has a nice leveling system that allows you to build up at a steady rate if you are alone and not FORCE people to party. I expect parties to level faster than a soloist as they would be fighting stronger mobs, but dont make it feel like you hit a lvl wall when alone.
