    Oh, well that really makes sense, because yeah it is really in the same vein.

    I like cartoony, exaggerated stuff but I tend to like it when it is cleaner, WoW's visual style is too busy for my personal taste.

    that definitely looks a lot better than some streamed gameplay i saw earlier. the main gripe i had with that was the environment looked like a few large textures.

    also nuthin wrong with making an mmo that has hardcore stuff that there is an audience for. not everything needs to be for everyone.

    It's strange to me, because some of the screenshots make it look like Wildstar's trying to go for the Rachet & Clank style, which I can totally get behind.

    But then that screenshot looks hella WoW.

    And I just don't think those two styles mix very well, I guess. I'd prefer if they went whole-hog with the sci-fi (or just find a much better sci-fantasy aesthetic than they have now).

    I did a google search for "wildstar"" and "casual" and I have no idea where your idea is coming from.

    I can't even find the exact quotes I was looking for, but if you look for any of the interviews with Stephan Frost you might see generally what I'm talking about.

    And even if they don't come out and say like, "fuck those casuals yo", when they say stuff like "There will be no dungeon finder tool, you need to have a coordinated and scheduled raid group and if you can't come up with that then too bad", and while that is paraphrased it is pretty close to what was actually said (it was actually "sucks to be you," IIRC), I feel like you can kind of extrapolate how they feel about those sorts of players. They crow the fact that they are catering to the hardcore MMO raiding crowd so often it may as well be their mantra.

    I'm not even saying it's a bad thing, if that's the sort of game you want then cool, this is probably the only game in recent memory even attempting that sort of thing. But that just isn't my jam anymore, so I just grew less and less interested as it became apparent they were developing in a direction that laid opposite my interests.

    40 man raids?

    Look, I did my time in Molten Core and Blacking Lair.

    I'd sooner pound a nail through my dick then do that again.

    Those dungeons were nothing more than a test to see if you get 40 people to follow incredibly basic instructions and not fall asleep for 5 hours straight, which is surprisingly hard, actually. But if the challenge of your game comes from the logistics of herding the lives of your players, and not the game itself, you've made a shit game.

    My only problem with that is the 40 man thing. More players just means harder to get groups together and less interesting mechanics because they have to account for so many people. Molten Core mechanics wise would barely pass for a 5-man nowadays in terms of what's actually going on in the fights

    I played the Wildstar Beta a month or so ago and it was okay? It looked very much like WoW but had some great animations and style. However, I found it boring. The combat lacked impact and it all felt very float-y. The UI was also quite terrible.

    16 year old me who played WoW would have been super stoked I think, especially with the housing/path options/customizations, but 22 year old me who is burned out on the genre didn't find anything interesting really.

    That said, there are two MMOs I need to try again soon. I want to play SWTOR again and finish the Imperial Agent storyline, and I want to try FFXIV again. I only played the latter for a month ish back in September before I got side-tracked, I'd like to give it another month and see.
