Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I'm thinking that my current hobbyist games project is too big in scope to do while also learning directx11. So going to do a small game first while I get used to (or re-used to, I did some dx3 and dx5 a long while back) non XNA game coding.

    Need something that would have worked on an Atari 2600 or therabouts. And I've coded Breakout too many times already.

    What you think "makes sense" has nothing to do with reality. It just has to do with your life experience. And your life experience may only be a small smidgen of reality. Possibly even a distorted account of reality at that. So what this means is that, beginning in the 20th century as our means of decoding nature became more and more powerful, we started realizing our common sense is no longer a tool to pass judgment on whether or not a scientific theory is correct. - Neil Degrasse Tyson

    Instead of making Elder Scrolls Online, they should be making a multiplayer Elder Scrolls game where you and a small handful of friends can adventure in the ES setting on a private server and also it shouldn't be a WoW clone.

    I think this is the general consensus, yes

    as far as I know the ES Online people are not the devs who are worked on (and continue to work on) Skyrim or any hypothetical sequels.

    So I really do not care about it in the slightest. It is something I would never buy and it is not sucking talent or resources away from the real ES team.

    Cass- the biggest, most important thing you can do is swallow down your anxiety and move the relationship with your professor from a friendly one to a professional one

    You can still keep the friendly relationship, but now is definitely the time to act. At the very least put ideas in the guy's head that you are a competent student/author (I feel you have done this already) and then let him know that you want to follow in his footsteps so to speak

    That's the closest thing to good news about the damn game.

    but then... jesus, these people are idiots.

    that was what you should have made

    instead they're making a Generica Online thing which is not going to do well because nothing that does wow's thing ever does

    Just fucking make the whole thing like a PvP thing. Have many guild halls ran by players and fight for land, etc. The only reason you band together and kill raid bosses is for better armor and weapons to attack and defend against attacks by other guilds.

    I mean, Elder Scrolls online VISUALLY looks cool, and has an interesting story and plot

    But

    I mean

    I just want to play Skyrim, but with more people at the same time

    If skills and combat do not work like they do in Skyrim then I don't care really because its just Fantasy MMO 2038358 and I already have guild wars 2, LoTRO, WoW if I want it, Rift, Tera....

  • Silas BrownSilas Brown Registered User regular
    Elder Scrolls Online endgame is slated to be a PvP fuckfest, but I don't really see how that would make it a better Elder Scrolls game.

    Arch, do you still play LoTRO? My LotR hype has me considering giving it another download.

    Kind of have to disagree here.

    Turbine, with LOTRO and D&D Online are doing the WoW thing more or less, and they are running a profitable enterprise. LOTRO is on its 4th major expansion, with lots of new content coming out all the time.

    they just don't have over ten million subscribers.

    The only thing WoW did that was truly detrimental to the industry was shape expectations on what was a successful MMO. A successful game should be one where the player base pays for the cost of upkeep, hardware, software and staffing for the MMO through monthly fees, boxed expansions and in-game purchases, with some breathing room for the company to be profitable and fund future development. NOT "This game has less than 2 million players DOOMED!" - That mentality is why Star Wars felt they could spent hundreds of millions on developing an MMO, because a good MMO should be able to maintain 10 million subs... which is completely idiotic.

    Apparently ElderScrolls online will have similar combat, at least for melee guys?

    Left click= attack, hold for power
    Right click= shield

    maybe it won't suck super bad?

    oooh now I want to make something like that SOTAR

    except the reason to kill raid bosses wouldn't be to get good armor and weapons but to keep Gigantica, the queen of giants, from fucking up your place

    Like I wouldn't want ANY "kill this guy, get a token for badass armor". No, you take the raw drops to your smith, who is another player. He makes some badass armor for your guild, then you take it to your enchanter, and he makes it more badass.

    WoW is no longer the behemoth it once was. GW2 looks to be a vastly superior game.

    That said, I'd be more enthusiastic about the idea of MMOrrowind if one of the defining features of Bethesda games wasn't "trivial to break balance"

    I just wish everyone playing MMOs now could have experienced the sillyness that was the EQ original quest giver system. The quest giver would have a highlighted word in the text that they would say when you greeted them. Then you would have to type a question in say about that subject. So:
    Quest Giver: Hello Sir Ruggedwang, we're having problems with the kobolds.
    Sir Ruggedwang: (types) What's wrong with the kobolds?
    Quest Giver: (gives the rest of the quest)

    That's how they wanted it to work. But what it turned into is people realizing that it was just query words + subject that triggered the quest so it just turned into a ton of people spamming "What kobolds, Who kobolds, Where kobolds, When kobolds". Pretty hilarious stuff when there were a ton of people around.

    well, it's like... they're not even trying. They're just going for the super-safe uninteresting route.

    and yeah, by "well" I meant like, WoW or Skyrim or other big franchises "well". Because, well, the ender scrolls is big and this is bleh.
