WoW(The TOY MMO) is the cabbage patch doll of MMOs,sold a whole crap load of units,and the buzz spred like wild fire through the childrens community.And like the cabbage patch it slowly died off and was forgotten about as people got more mature and wanted better. The Secret World will be the hand made VooDoo Doll infused with deadly magic of the MMO world.:)
I just want to make 1 thing clear about EA.EA WILL NOT be handling any part of the development,story writing.or game play.They will be handling online distrabution and some of the promotional aspects for a cut of the profits.Funcom will be handling the boxed sales and ALL other things that have to do with the game machanics.If you dont want to support EA just by the box then. Secondly,I'd rather play a new MMO from a company that has learned from a failed launch such as Funcom,than play a new MMO from a company that didnt make a mistake yet,as they will not know what to do when it happens.:)
One thing i know is that this game will awesome because represents real life places all over the world and not some fantasy created bullsh1t worlds like wow.enough said
continued from previous comment and paragraph..... Thats impressive on its own.Course you would know this if you bothered doing any research before opening your mouth.It has absolutely nothing to do with randomly creating odd creatures just to bring people in.Most of the creatures were already created by history. 3.I dont really have much of a ego.I just dont like people spewing crap or lies.After this im just not going to bother talking to you.You dont do your proper research, you dont have any clue about the games your talking about, and you dont even know much about MMORPGs in general. I myself played Everquest at release.So i go quite a ways back.Not to mention i have played many many mmorpgs to date. Most mmorpgs wait til they have released information on ALL their classes before releasing any correlating gameplay.SWTOR did just that.Then when they did that they released previews of each class and their abilities.From there came gameplay videos as time went on. Also to add to this , its common knowledge that SWTOR is pretty much the sequel to KOTOR 2.The closest we are going to get. This is a Bioware mmorpg.It was pretty obvious what the gameplay was going to be like and its obvious that Bioware prefers to focus on story first.So yes the story had to be established first.Then comes everything else. Next time you open your mouth, know what you are talking about.
@AkatiS LOL wow you are fail.Im even most likely older than you, which just isnt funny enough without the fact that your so bloody off base. 1.You do know there are other MMORPGs than WoW right? That many other game companies have tried to establish a hold in that market since EVERQUEST NOT WOW.Jeezus you act like WoW established everything.You obviously lack info.But then again i have seen many like this. The fact is that Everquest was the first MMORPG to truly take flight in the market and begin a trend of games to follow it.The only truly successful one to take flight after it was WoW.You need to understand that these games are simply coming into a market SHARED by WoW.In fact many many MMORPGs actually match WoW's numbers.Just thought i share that. Your doing the same thing that other people do with COD.They compare it with everything and anything as they consider COD the pinnacle of FPS gaming when in truth its a pile of crap that happened to become popular(much like WoW). 2.You dont know a single thing about The Secret World at all.Maybe you should look it up and do some research.Its actually heavily based on a famous bookline that many people follow.It follows a great deal of its inspiration and lore.To add to that many of the creatures,locations, and stories are based on REAL world lore,myths, and culture.
I've been wanting a more adult/horror themed MMO for forever. They seem to have the settings, the lore, the places and all, but the gameplay seems very old school with no new ideas to push the boundaries. Funcom gets great ideas and IP's and then usually executes poorly. Kind of a shame for all the talent they have.
Gotta say after watching the video too, for all their dressing it up and trying to make it sound exciting, and for their saying it's "not a hub", this sounds an awful lot like a Hub game. There's a lot of instanced content here, meaning a hand full of players go off away from the rest of the gaming community, and there isn't much detail on the Open World aspects of the game. My concern is that the cities will be Hubs and everything will be instanced esport and egrind stuff, this doesn't sound like the same game they were talking about a few months ago.
I was getting interested in Secret World but after seeing that EA Logo I'm just going to look forward to Guildwars 2 because there's never been an MMO that EA touched that didn't turn out terribly wrong or get casually cancelled on a whim.
Still interested in this game. It sounds good, and is looking good, but....i'll just wait for reviews and such. Doesn't look like you can customize your character very well. They all look so plain and normal.
@wolfgrey I already told you what i meant , what is your problem kiddo? You still bypassing the facts? SW:TOR is one more effort , the biggest yet for EA to be ESTABLISHED in mmorpg market , as WOW did/does!! IS that fact... IT IS... Now , isnt fact that SW:tor is near to release and weve seen tons of premade preview fixed ingame videos and CGIs way more than actually ingame footage till 2 months ago? IT IS FACT!!! Isnt Fact that Secret World is basing more into twisted monsters and locations to lure subscribers way more than its story or any new mechanic/gameplay? its damn fact!! I dont know what dont you undestand or if my english are that bad but let your ego aside , go read again what i wrote , THINK for a minute before you answer me ... Go back , check what im talking about and if you DONT agree its ok.. There are people with different opinions that yours. Live with it or if you cant , you need to grow up. for Fact!! Now dont bypass the facts again and say your random things again. Thnx. Wont respond anymore , your ego is too big for me to win. bye
@wolfgrey You dont admit the facts!! When you CANT EVEN ADMIT what the facts are like EA TRYING DESPERATLY to make an established mmorpg like Blizzard , which is WOW .. where i told you what i meant and you still you dont understand it... When you dont see the fact that SW:TOR is near release and we HAVENT SEEN anything major out of the game till 2 months ago?? other than fixes preview videos and CGIs.. When you dont admit that Secret world is heavily based on twisted creatures and locations rather than story and any new gameplay/mechanics.. If you cant understand what the facts are and you cant see what im trying to say.. Just leave it be!! Seriously. Thats my opinion and wont change if you simply dont agree with it. And worse of all?? After 2 wall of texts you still dont get what i mean and BYPASS the facts we all know .... Your ego is too high for a serious conversation. Sorry man. Im sorry for you.
This will probably flop, mark my words. It has no fresh ideas, no fresh content. The devs say "we put the characters in exciting locations". Locations?? that is not what makes a game exciting, its the gameplay and the way the story unfolds. Location is irrelevant, no player looks at the scenery while killing mobs. The game itself has to be addictive and fresh in order to work. This game doesnt appear to have that. Its a pity, I remember thinking this game will break the mold when I saw the first trailer, the one with the chinese girl.
i was interested in this years ago, now that SWTOR is coming out before this, I'll have to pass on it
@AzatiS Lets review one sentence for you. "SWTOR:EA is trying to make its own WoW" You posted that sentence.So ya lol major fail on your part. 1.You do know SWTOR is a heavily cinematic game that involves fully interactive conversations yes? Did you also know ALOT of the trailers/videos were actually about its production,gameplay, or classes.So no technically i never had to wait long.Because long before you said, i had already gotten to see a little bit of each class as they got announced.Ya thats right, i was on their site before all of them got announced, so i may know abit more than you.(dam comment crap is screwing up and wont space things right) 2.Im looking forward to GW:2 as well but im not gonna be a dick and proclaim it everywhere like a pathetic fanboy and bash everything else.Kinda makes you a loser. 3.You said it had a story sure, but that was it, then you started to bash it.Ya real mature.So i explained abit of how the story works and how its setting is nice.Didnt have to take it in a literal sense.But the gameplay isnt bad either. People like you should refrain from posting on here.Do us all a favor eh?
The big question will be can they actually deliver to the Xbox platform this time. One of the reasons Conan had such a terrible time is they promised and promised and promised again that they had an xbox versions ready to go, only to reveal later it was all a lie and they had scrapped the port. They are already promising an xbox port with this again now, so they had better deliver this time, or no one will ever take them seriously again. If they can pull it off for the Xbox, they will be gods as they will have delivered a mmo experience that only a couple of other devs have been able to offer. We shall see...
the only thing i really liked about clicking on this video is the RAGE trailer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! im sick of LOOTING and grinding games ..yawn yawn yawn!!!!!!!!!!!!!! can MMO's get innovative please?
Ok all remember Conan (Epic Fail) This company is at it again.. Now I love good old modern day what if games but this company has failed time and time again! They will need to work hard to earn my trust. Yes I know I am just one person. But that’s how it is. Some people do not forget the wrong of not providing a refund!
@wolfgrey Fail 1 --> How many premade trailers and CGIs youve seen till you see these 15min demos?... Ill tell you if you dont remember... 6 months straight... Fail 2 --- >Did GW2 started with CGIs and previews? NO... Even 2 years before showed in game videos!!!! Did SW did that? Read your homework next time... Fail 3 ---> As of Secret World story , did i say it wouldnt have a story?!!! All i said was that its trying to be appealing and wow gamers but its twisted creatures rather than anything else ... , puting words i never said in my mouth is so low. And finally for your epic fail... I DIDNT , ever did compared SW to WoW... Read for once what im saying !!! Im saying that EA trying desperatly to establish its own MMORPG , like Blizzards wow... DONT twist my thoughts and claimings!! Seriously... Who said about copy wow and what the heck you trying to prove here.!! DONT put words in my mouth i never said , you seriously got problems pal!!! You claiming fail , but you know whats the biggest fail here...? YOU CANT READ!!!!.Have a nice day man and next time read carefully what people trying to say before jumping on them... That was funny!
I grow so tired of watching all these videos and reading all this information about all these MMOS, and also getting excited only to see the TBA release date...I dont know if you guys agree with me but the more you have to wait for these said games the more I feel like not even bothering. Release the games because your not going to have a good release launch anyways so you will have to work on it no matter what. But at least you get some feed back from what you need to work on not just keep us waiting! Sorry to ramble on but wow its becoming annoying....
