Every time I see the commercial for it, I think it's a new Kung Fu Panda movie.

Yay Pokemon battles!

They just gave me a free week to come back and "get ready" for Pandaria. I played for about 45 minutes and realized that I'd made the right decision in moving on from WoW. I don't know that I'll fall in love with SW:TOR, but I'm giving it a try.
 
2012-09-21 12:02:00 PM  
god, that looks terrible. i haven't played WoW for over a year, and i don't really miss it.
 
2012-09-21 12:03:08 PM  
WoW... that was... oh yeah, that thing that wasn't quite as good as CoH, but has somehow inexplicably outlived it.

Exactly.
CoH is way better.

(My kids told me so)

Warcraft: Orcs and Humans - Season 1
Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness - Season 2
StarCraft - Seasons 3, 4, 5
Warcraft III - Seasons 6, 7
World of Warcraft - Season 8
StarCraft II - Season 9
Diablo III - Seasons 10, 11
Mists of Pandaria - Seasons 12 and onward, where the show resembles the previous years in name only.

Prove me wrong.

dahmers love zombie: SW:TOR


it's fun enough. it's pretty much WoW with lightsabers though. the neat thing is instead of spending time with professions, you send your followers to do the gathering and crafting for you.

This is a joke, right?

Nope. Just a terrified company flailing marketing money at their cash cow and last bastion of consumer goodwill before it goes crashing downward.

That ship sailed two expansions ago.

My shiny widget is better than your sparkly widget! I need to grind through hours of a dungeon with this PUG to get the super shiny widget accessory to complement my collection and...oh look, the asshole who can't even use it effectively won it and immediately dipped. Time to PUG again.

Every time I see the commercial for it, I start laughing because I know that the in-game graphics are friggin' awful.
 
2012-09-21 12:44:26 PM  
Wait, this went red? Lol? What happened? Did we butthurt the Blizzard marketers?

Too much snark.

Pocket Ninja: This is a joke, right?


when it was first announced, I just assumed that it was an elaborate april fools joke. which would have been AWESOME. just like the bard class.

instead ... shudder it is real. real dumb.
on the other hand, where else can I waste time and kill me some dragons? with lots of strange peoples??

gameshowhost: I start laughing because I know that the in-game graphics are friggin' awful.


LOL
I play skyrim if I wants pretty graphics. but it is just masturbation.

In the end, most games are just about changing 1s to 0s and 0s to 1s.
WOW still exists because of the online communities. No different than any other online community.

This. I quit midway through the ice world expansion. Too gimmicky. Too easy-mode.

Also this.

2012-09-21 02:43:48 PM  
Hmph, I think I'll log back into Everquest, just out of spite
 
2012-09-21 02:43:53 PM  
Nope.

But on a brighter note, i highly recommend The Secret World.
 
2012-09-21 02:44:52 PM  
Link is dead for me. Anyone got another?

/busy playing GW 2 anyway.
 
2012-09-21 02:45:51 PM  
Well, I like it, and I will be playing it

/loved the beta
 
2012-09-21 02:46:27 PM  
I'm a reformed WoW addict. Love the game. Would play if not for the huge life-sucking time drain.

But the panda thing... I don't get it.
 
2012-09-21 02:46:37 PM  
Never played WoW and never cared to. I did however become of one several thousand to be suckered into buying D3... what a joke... Hacked accounts, a company attempting to sell you additional products to secure their lack of security... That was the last Blizzard/Battle.net POS software I will ever own.
 
2012-09-21 02:47:35 PM  

J. Frank Parnell: Nope.

That one looks interesting.
Currently playing GW2, lots of fun

Well, the pandarens race were created within Blizz as early as 1999 and canonized in lore since Warcraft 3; I don't get the hullabaloo against the pandas.
 
2012-09-21 02:49:19 PM  
My first thought is that it couldn't be more uninspired and derivative as Cataclysm, but I've been proven wrong before.
 
2012-09-21 02:49:36 PM  
I'm in with everyone else who's glad they dropped WoW in Cataclysm.
WotLK was a fun expansion. Cataclysm just. . . sucked.

The grind was exactly like a dead-end job and nothing like fun.

The game still has more paying subscribers than just about all other NA MMOs combined.

My initial reaction to this being announced was "you're kidding, right?", and dissolved into apathy shortly after. Quit in January, and it would take pretty much a complete game revamp to bring me back.

I'll give them credit, they do generally have the best combat 'feel' of any mmo going in terms of key responsiveness etc, but eh. Onto other things.
 
2012-09-21 02:50:41 PM  
Way to come out when I'm busy playing Torchlight 2 and Borderlands 2.

/not that I was buying Panda Express anyways

Same.

You could replace 50% of the new content by just buying any given pokemans game.

But you were OK with the giant bull people and the quest lines based off of popular TV shows?

Yes, LCD bullsh*t is typically popular in many areas of entertainment
 
2012-09-21 02:52:06 PM  
I'd rather play Cyber Nations...and maybe break out my old copy of Warcraft II. Fun times playing that...hours I'll never get back.
 
2012-09-21 02:52:08 PM  
Meanwhile, I am having a blast on Guild Wars 2. WoW was done 2 or 3 expansions ago.

McDonalds still has more customers than any other restaurant on Earth. It must be the best one.

That's a matter of perspective -- All I'm saying is that the argument about it ripping Kung Fu Panda is completely baseless

Same here. 2006-2008 were WoW-crack years for me (even worse with Achievement hunting). Quit some time after WotLK came out. I now prefer to play games I can walk away from without fearing I'm missing out on something or getting out-geared for a given raid/pvp map.

Tried SW:TOR, but got that same feeling again. Great single-player storylines, but not worth a monthly sub if I don't want to raid.
 
2012-09-21 02:53:22 PM  
Wonder how much they paid for this
 
2012-09-21 02:53:42 PM  
Panderans have existed in the WoW lore since Warcraft without the World of. Christ some people cry about anything.

WoW is not without a fault -- but still does the MMO thing better than all other MMOs. I mean, please do tell me how SWTOR, Aion and Rift are doing.

Which, by the way, is something like the TV viewership of a single NFL Sunday game between two smaller cities.

I used to be a MMO junky... now I just play League of Legends because each game is 40 minutes or less and self contained, but still has all the RPG elements. Well, for those who like pvp.
