Even a decade old, WoW still looks better than every MMO out there.

Remember when this game didn't show quest objective location on your map.

"There is a bandit camp south east of the pumpkin patch" type of stuff.

WoW, and MMOs in general, are more than just a game. It's a relationship forged over time between you and your online avatars. The time you spent growing their levels and skills; the new lands, dungeons and raids you took them to; the friends you've made and lost along the way; the accumulation of months you've spent researching to make your character better.

THAT'S why so many people are still playing WoW (and Everquest and Lineage, to a lesser extent). And that's why, no matter what great new graphics or innovation comes out, it's that much harder to take people away from WoW or any other MMO of choice. WildStar and other F2P MMOs are doing their part in trying to chip it down. But no matter how hard the wind blows, the mountain that is WoW will not bow down to it.

This game seems to always just do the bare. Do we got Dungeons? *Check!*, raids? *check*.... ok we got ourselves an expansion fk thinking about anything else we can do with what we have. Its still a solid MMO experience, but its a decade old now with everything it does. Probably a for this expansion 8/10


Wildstar is nice, but it really feels like its missing something. I was hoping for some fun cinematics with quests. I don't like the healing in it, i can't see it being easy for people... so it will just hurt badly the number of healers normally found in a MMO, which isn't something you want to do. Its pretty fair to give it 7/10


Destiny has 2 parts to it, a shooter and a ... kind of mmo thing(think Borderlands but sooooooo much larger). If you liked Borderlands you will probably love it, if you hate shooters then clearly stay away. Its really got thing Borderlands + Mass Effect + Star Wars + Halo thing going. Its going to be a good game, as far as i can tell from the beta. Destiny will be minimum: a good game, and i'm pretty picky with things. I'm trying not to get ahead of myself when talking about Destiny, all i got to try was a "ALPHA", but i can see this game reaching 8+/10.

This is a bad stream. Get people that know wow... Who didn't figure out that there is an opening behind the round hole... geez blind heroes... :D


It doesn't matter that people can buy a boost. It's almost the same as changing class for people that are playing wow normally, they still need to figure out all the small stuff that makes that class special. 


But they are wrong, it does not take forever to lvl. Not at all anymore.

The guy walked passed the damn soul chamber entrance countless times, too bloody distracted by the mobs jumping into the pit. If he stopped jumping around on his mount like an idiot he would have found it.

I could never get into playing the WOW warrior. I loved the pally and the DK, but could not play the warrior.

Burning Crusade was my favorite expansion. After it WoW became a kiddy game, burning crusade was hard as nails (before the nerf bat ruined it).

@therealzorvan It went from PS2/Gamecube generation to PS3/360 generation graphics? I can live with that.

Besides, people that think graphics are everything are even bigger losers.

@therealzorvan  if that was sarcasm, I just wanna point out that 4 years is a lot of time. if they didn't try to make SOME kind of graphical improvement, the game would still look ten years old, rather than 6 years old. I guess all im saying is that graphics in 2008 IS a good jump from 2004...

@masakijoe Warrior takes a lot more finesse. DK = spam buttons and Paladin = spam ONE button.

@ahpuck And before they started throwing away easy attainable PvP epic gear with the game-breaking resilience thta turned this game into a joke.

@ahpuck Agreed! Although I did rather enjoy WotLK's story and lore.

@RoachRush @therealzorvan Graphics aren't everything, but if I was going to spend hundreds of man hours and thousands of dollars to upgrade the graphics, And no, it's not 360/PS3 graphics. It's cheap mmo graphics circa 2008. I'd want it to look a bit newer than 6 years old. Otherwise, there's no point.

@Samslayer @ahpuck WotLK was fun, but mostly because the Guild I was in was full of fun people. I used to love raiding with them.

@Neomaniac15 @jako998  The Date you see on it Now is not that Final Date. it could be a chance it will come out in September

Then go play Tera, or Guild Wars. They obviously have better graphics, AND they're free to play.

And if you're not playing these games, why aren't you? Certainly if they have better graphics and more action oriented gameplay, that should be your fix, right?
