A disappointing first look at The Elder Scrolls Online

[QUOTE=dvondrake;36328024]They used to. SWG is a perfect example of a good sandbox MMO, shame it's gone now. Theme park MMOs (WoW clones) are really boring to me. I think GW2 is going to be somewhat sandbox though, which is promising.[/QUOTE]
SWG had specific places dubbed "themeparks", like the quest chain in Jabbas palace that slowly let you work your way up the palace interiors and eventually work for Jabba himself. In my opinion, that's as themepark as any MMO needed to be -- a side attraction on the road, much like an actual themepark.
This new WoW expansion is looking great!
[QUOTE=Boba_Fett;36301954]DDO had some pretty fun combat. You actually click every time you want to attack, and you could move around while doing it and dodge.
Too bad nobody picked up on that.[/QUOTE]
It would have been awesome if you could actually dodge melee attacks as well.
Uhm, no, it was Arena that had the entirety of Tamriel, not Daggerfall.

Shit, you're right, I fucked up.
[QUOTE=153x;36288742]I'm still praying that this turns out good.
I hope it fails horribly so that they realize it's a fucking stupid idea and instead implement a co-op for their future fallout / elder scrolls title and add co-op to the previous titles aswell.
But they won't.
Why not just make a game like skyrim but with a co op.
I'd buy that day one.
The one thing I'm worried about is if this flops and ends up bringing the rest of the TES series down with it.

Yeah. Although the team making this isn't Bethesda, Skyrim would have sold a shit ton more if that team of 250 was spent making a better engine that could stably support coop.
Instead we get a WoW clone.

Bethesda isn't making this, so all anyone can do is get mad at Zenimax Online.

Step 1. Get
Step 2. Over
Step 3. It

I sort of got stuck at "Over" I'm not exactly sure what you mean
Just another mmo with chars that looks cartoonish.
[quote]That is something we need to change.” But a lot of people see the action bar and see it as something that’s bad, because they picture rotation’s going off – you know, these long chains they set up – as opposed to what we really tried to do with it, which is, you can’t pause combat during an online game.[/quote]
Its bad because its just a reskin of every other mmo...
That corpse sure looks disappointed.
That dead guys face expression is exactly how I feel about this game.

This statement should be on the back of the box.

You need to go back to step 1 because you obviously didn't get it :v:
[QUOTE=Raidyr;36288612]That's an awfully pessimistic title for ShackNews.[/QUOTE] Doing them a favour, I think.. The less hype this game gets the "better" it will turn out to be; it's still going to be shit, though.
