Will discuss plenty in 3-4 years when there is something to discuss ^_^

MMOs shouldnt be announced until less than 6 months prior to launch IMO.

Looks like we all should start setting the example judging by what Derid just stated. We've been talking about DFO on and off for over 5 years now...

Oh I'm not saying we start guild forums and set up leadership and whatever. All they have up are like four screenshots, some dev art, and forums. They don't have any word on closed beta or a release date or any of that.

Regardless, it's pretty big news. I've been waiting for news on whether the Bioware/LucasArts project was KotoR 3 or an MMO for about a year now (http://www.lucasartsbioware.com/) and other than DF, that'll definitely be the next MMO I'll seriously be waiting for. It'd be nice if they do something good with for example the Fallout MMO, or Star Trek, or Stargate, or I believe they're making a firefly one. But really, the next two games I'm really looking forward to past Darkfall will be Starcraft 2, and SW:TOR.

I mean, there's still an infinite amount of room for them to mess the game up horribly. I guess that's the thing about such a large IP. There's so much potential, and maybe you just daydream about your perfect game involving that IP, so it's bound to disappoint... sort of like a movie based on a book. For example SWG had fantastic things about it, but it also had many flaws.

I'd like to believe though that Bioware could pull it off. I've only played the 2 KotoR games and Mass Effect from them, but I've loved all 3 RPGs. They say they want to try a different approach at making RPGs where they focus it more on stories. You have a party of NPCs with you, etc. It sounds promising... but I guess let's see what they actually do with it.

Who knows though. EA now owns Bioware, so they have their grubby little hands involved. They might decide it's not going to be profitable and pull the plug a year down the line :P

Yeah I think the concept is great... but its just a ways off...

And TBH I was that way with DFO... I still remember telling ppl to ignore it, it was to far off... got involved when they first announced beta 3 years ago... ofc... well we all know what happened with that.

2 parts of a conference they had when they announced the game. Volume is ridiculously though, you need to blast your speakers to hear it.

Never get excited nor judge a game until six months post
release. Only then will you truly know how well it will
work.

As far as it working well... I really don't doubt that. It's going to be a really high-budget game, and surely they'll get a team large enough to fix all their large bugs.

What I'm getting worried about, reading up on it, is the direction they're taking the game in. They pretty much want to beat WoW in terms of subscriber numbers, which probably means a dumbed down carebear fest full of ridiculous importance on gear attained from raiding, etc.

I guess we'll see. I'd still definitely give the game a shot, but from the little information out at the moment, I doubt it'll really be KGBs cup of tea.
