I'm tired of hearing companies say they're working on a "AAA" title. At best they'll release a "B" quality game.

Urgh....Imagine a world populated by those horrible Oblivion characters being controlled by other people. How are Bethesda going to manage MMO balance when they can't get a simple RPG progression system correct in a single player game?

Quote
An in-depth look at everything from solo questing to public dungeons awaits in our enormous June cover story as well as a peek at the player-driven PvP conflict that pits the three player factions against each other in open-world warfare over the province of Cyrodiil and the Emperor's throne itself.

Come back tomorrow morning for a brief teaser trailer from Zenimax Online and Bethesda Softworks, and later on in the afternoon for the first screenshot of the game. Over the course of the month, be sure to visit our Elder Scrolls Online hub, which will feature new exclusive content multiple times each week. You'll meet the three player factions, see video interviews with the creative leads, and much more.

Also I'm hearing that this is using the Hero Engine? If that's true, then I can't imagine TESO bringing in the level of detail that people would have come to expect in a TES game.

I dunno...the way some people around talk about Hero Engine, it sounds like the folks at Bioware are justa bunch of punk slackers who don't know their shit.  On the other hand, if a totally separate company still manages to make a crap game and it gets blamed on the engine, does that discredit everyone that said Hero Engine was the stuff of gods?

Guess I'll start saving my pennies for a new system. I'm not ashamed to admit I've been waiting for this for years. It probably won't turn out anything like what I want or imagine but it's the only future MMO I'm looking forward to, or at least looking forward to how it turns out.

Do not confuse Engine layer with Game layer. The two rarely meet on any given design.

Meh.  Elder Scrolls is all about open world, doing what you want, etc.  I don't see that translating into a popular MMO these days.  Which means, Elder Scrolls DIKU incoming, (maybe they will try something TOR-like which is equally uninteresting to me). Ohhhhh, I see.

If they make combat about button mashing abilities, this game will be DOA. I'm hoping, hoping, HOPING, they don't try to make a loot centered raiding don't stand in the fire clone.

I don't have a beef with DIKU like a lot of people here and even I cringe at the idea of raiding to kill some daedric lord and arguing over who gets his pants.

This is a terrible idea and can only be happening because the work is already underway and has been for some time. Otherwise just looking at SWTOR would be enough to convince anyone that it shouldn't be done.

I suspect this will have more in common with Minecraft than WoW.

Edit: Diablo 2 is a better example. Emphasis on loot & exploring procedurally-generated areas with defined hubs.

There are some leaks of the Game Informer article around the internet now.  Let's just say, from what I read, I have cancelled my pre order of TSW, and thoughts of GW2 and TERA have fled my mind.  I'm going to play my old standbys til this game comes out.  I have pretty huge confidence that Firor and team are going to deliver.

Matt Firor and his team were LONG gone from Mythic before WAR.  Marc Jacobs and his new hires ruined that game all by themselves.

My (likely unpopular) take: DAoC was a shit MMO in both PvP and PvE, Oblivion was a mediocre at best RPG that lacked heart and engaging content... match made in heaven, I guess?

Sandbox. Please. PLEASE.

That's a good one.
