In my opinion its better than SWTOR, I also prefer it to GW2.

The quests are way better than these two games, as are the graphics and feat system.

What the game really lacks is mini-games. The massive battles are great, its a bit of rip off from GW2 but it seems to work better. I really like mini games though as it allows you to stand out from the crowd.

I think MC said he was going to try it when it goes free to play, which it will. If you don't want to pay for the sub I recommend at least checking it out when it goes FTP.

So much Dark Souls. I don't even know where to start, or if I can even explain the things I've experienced. It's going to take one hell of a game to beat this for GOTY.

Extremely excited for SWTOR. Early April comes update 2.7 with a new major storyline which kicks off with 2 new FP's. It'll introduce Theron Shan (son of Satele Shan and Captain Jace Malcolm) to the game, who made his debut in this novel:



Won't mean much to any of you i'm sure but if you were as big of a SW nut as i am, you'd be excited.

SWTOR questing is horrifically overrated. This "Dynamic questing" that they tried to sell everyone on is literally the same thing as everything else but with voice acting.

I haven't played many MMO's, but I've never played one that had the style of questing that SWTOR had. It was a lot like Mass Effect, multiple choices to make during conversations, dark/light options where you can go good or evil, and the stories themselves (at least the agent storyline) were top notch. It certainly destroys WoW/Guild Wars 2 (the two main mmo's I've played) when it comes to story and general quest management.

Wii U does have some great games coming out, Smash/Kart among others. With that said, Dark Souls 2 is a different beast altogether. I honestly think I like it better than the first one.

I disagree. Sure there was something like a paragon scale and a few choices during the cutscenes, but at the end of the day, the questing was go kill this guy, kill 12 of these, and bring back 10 of these.

I don't think it destroys anything. It may be slightly more engaging, but certainly nothing spectacular.

Something different than what there was. People were all talking about how the questing was so different and great, so I went in with those expectations and found that it wasn;t really much different.

Not that it ruined the game for me or anything. What ruined the game was the lack of end game. For me. Other people like it and still play and that's cool for them.

But you don't know what?? The way I see it every single game that has quests is going to come down to a basic principle off kill that guy,find that,activate this, etc. Even single player games compromise of that at the core. Personally I find it weird when people expect something else... As I'm not sure a MMO can really do much else. I liked the questing in it but I guess I got what I expected.
