    So according to this RPS article, they made the content creation tools for Next into it's own game which is pretty smart; gets people who are too intimidated at tradition devs tools to cook stuff up and no (relatively) awkward looking crap since you have to use in-game stuff to make it.

    No more fat ogres. The emote stuff is really cool too.

    Yeah, well, the question is always 'can they deliver.' It helps that they at least have something to show of those features right now. (I'm looking at you, Star Citizen.)

    I'm curious to how dynamic the 'emergent AI' is.

    I'm not quite sure about this Everquest Next Landmark. It sounded good when he first propositioned it, but people buying other creations in hope of making more money doesn't seem like a fun game.

    Promising stuff here, will keep an eye on it.

    Still looking forward to Wildstar more though, for now.

    So, they made minecraft into an actual game, and the game is an MMORPG fueled by steam workshop type business model.

    Sounds pretty rad.

    If I get 1/3rd of what they are promising will I still enjoy the game? Yes, I think I would.

    It seems to work pretty well in Dota 2, which has the best and most generous business model of any game in its genre space by far. It's a win for the developers and the players. I only caught the tail end of the announcement but it sounds like there's nothing stopping you from ignoring the market and just building everything yourself like you might want to do regardless.

    I saw that mentioned in a few different places. Presumably it was part of the E3 presentation.

    The example was stumbling on a farmer's barn being burned down by Orcs. You could help the farmer and maybe be rewarded by him, or help the Orcs and get a reward from them instead. And NPCs would remember the types of decisions you made and treat you accordingly.

    So if it works like it sounds, consider the following example. A Wood Elf is wandering around Nektulos Forest and discovers some Dark Elf guards fighting off some Halflings. He decides to pitch in and help and the guards thank him. If he does this frequently enough, he might be granted permission to enter Neriak. But then the Halflings won't let him into Rivervale anymore, unless he makes up for it elsewhere.

    Yeah, but that's okay with me. EQ1 HD wasn't something I was seriously expecting, and I still think EQN looks fucking rad as hell. Pretty excited about EQN Landmark as well

    I think the most exciting thing about this beyond any bullet point like voxels or user generated content is that they are aiming for something radically different than the current WoW inspired paradigm. That alone is huge.

    I think some of these "This or Wildstar" comparisons might end up woefully invalid as more stuff comes out and it becomes clear how different they really are.

    The class system alone is something I've wanted back for a long time. If they pull even just that part off I'll be happy.

    Levels are stupid and so is being limited to one choice for skills based on a choice you make at character creation.

    Scosglen, we always see eye to eye on this stuff! Yeah this is quite a huge shift. I wonder if destruction and user made content (and hopefully user created cities and stuff) becomes the direction that other big companies start to take. Wildstar is by and large a team of people trying to distort the old EQ/WoW formula enough to reinvigorate the market, but it's still held back.

    This is a whole new direction.

    Come on! VOXELS!

    Not sure if anyone saw this in the articles but i noticed something was amiss and here is the answer
    there are also no levels in this game, although your character does still progress.

    "There are no levels but your character does progress" is such an incredibly vague statement, which means nothing except "the numeric representation of the power of your character is not called 'level'."

    Anyway, color me skeptical. This game seems to be making promises that are more or less exactly the same as Oblivion did re: Oblivion's "Radiant AI"... and look how that turned out. I'm expecting all the pie-in-the-sky ideas to turn into something much more rudimentary by the time the game is actually released.
