Between this and Star Citizen, what do we need real games for?  Entertainment?  It's all right here and free.

I see we are committed to another cycle of hopes and dreams being raised, then dashed.  Pity.

Only if 3 years from now in an odd twist of fate this comes out and is the Best Game EVER could that be possible.

The day EQ Next is declared dead, Brad McQuaid went on to stream for the first time his EQ replacement for almost two hours.

Two thoughts:

1) That bobbing camera is bloody nauseating
2) The world is really.... lumpy. I mean, I get that hills and stuff exist, but this is taken to some bizarre extreme. Most places tend to be flat in reality.

Yeah, that bobbly camera has got to go. Way too much. As for the rest, it looks like they reskinned Everquest with an engine from about 3 years ago.

They are making a game with a game design from 1998 for an audience that existed in 2003 with assets from 2005. When If it releases, it will have been obsolete before they even started development.

Or it'll be just in time for the Nostagia trip 20 years later as the kids in their teens and 20s who played EQ try to recapture their youth in their 30s and 40s.  awesome, for real

Color me mildly shocked.

I assumed that these guys would have spent the past two years getting high, and then when the money ran out, find jobs as waitstaff or uber drivers or something.

(Yes, I checked. The OP of this thread was over two years ago  Ohhhhh, I see.)

But I watched a little bit of that video, and it's clear that they've produced something.
Not that anyone should be impressed by that per se, but I was expecting these guys to just quietly disappear.

I think this pretty much sums up my view of this game. Having briefly watched the video, it felt like a worse version of Skyrim.

Regardless on if you liked Skyrim or not, either you didn't watch the video or you never played skyrim, cause that comparison is really odd.

With any luck, in another twenty or thirty years, McQuaid and Garriot will still be pumping out their latest derivative cash grabs that are attemmpting to recapture the magic of games released a then fifty years ago.

Maybe at that point their efforts will have become so sad and small that a similar pittance will not only just afford me "VIP" access but buy a little face time with two of the "game gods" of the 1990s.

I mean, just think, I could be THAT guy.  Something to look forward to I suppose.

We can negotiate later.  I think I realized after a recent string of buying mmos and playing for two hours before uninstalling, that I've become my step dad. I can pinpoint exactly when he stopped listening to popular music, nothing registers after the James gang.

At this point for me, an mmo is eq or uo.  I may or may not enjoy bbq chicken pizza, but when I think of pizzas I think red sauce and pepperoni, and no amount of superior bbq pizza will do.

So enough time has passed that these guys can make a more  technically advanced version of the game they made 20 years ago.  It's not AAA by today's standards but it's the only thing that will do to scratch that itch.

People who give money to Pantheon is a perfect way in figuring out who is a moron or not. Also puts a target on them as someone you could probably swindle money from.

Serious question, are you currently playing EQ Classic or any of the EQ servers, or the old school UO emulator systems?

Cause if not this is nothing but nostalgia about the "good old days" that will never happen again, partially because gaming has evolved but more because you as a person have evolved.  The newness of the genre, the excitement of those around you for the game, the community that shares your values to a tee because everyone back then was at pretty much the same stage of life,  just the fact that you were younger, etc... is all gone and can never be gotten again.

So many of the games I loved growing up (both MMOs and non) I try to go back to and realize I just don't enjoy the game as much as I remember loving it previously.  That doesn't mean everything out since then is shit, it just means that tastes change as you grow up, and a lot of times the reason you think of why you loved the games you previously loved are not really the real core reasons why you loved those games in the first place.  Which of course means that every game you anticipate will check off the right checkboxes will not turn out exciting because it's not even the correct checkboxes you really want checked off.

My old EQ guild (which now flits between other MMOs), full of intelligent people, is into this. Pledging away, discussing it. I may have to watch the video.
