New World of Warcraft expansion Battle for Azeroth announced

Wyrm

6 months ago

@FortysixterUK Release for this has to be a while off yet, 7.3 still has plenty of legs left on it afterall. Given how they seem to have their schedule tighter than the last two expansions though, you'd have to think best case scenario is late summer?

As for Classic sub... I doubt anything they could do would be commercial suicide, people will pay for this if they have to. I would imagine it might be a slight increase to have access to Classic servers as well as live, like getting the UHD option on Netflix. Perhaps with the option of a cheaper Classic-only sub too.

@crazyhorse174 Presumably the cost of doing something this high quality for a feature length project would be extortionate... might have worked out better for the WoW movie to go that route though!

@Daeltaja They know exactly what theyíre doing. Legion brought back the idea of class identity, this is obviously an attempt to bring back faction identity using story threads they have been setting up two expansions ago. They have also set up the future direction of the game through the void lords and the separation of dark and light. WoW is extremely healthy right now, it may not be for you, but donít try to argue that this company hasnít got any ideas left.

World of Warcraft Classic: We ask Blizzard our biggest questions

@Zealuu2 I have to imagine it will be a mix of points in time. Bug fixes and ability adjustments from the end of the Vanilla period from the start, but the content of launch. Then the additional raids and dungeons patched in over time. They have to make us do the gates of AQ again right??

I don't even have time to play the regular servers!

Ridiculous fan service though, can't think of any other devs that would go this far... which makes me wonder if we will have an increased sub to access Vanilla servers as well as current content... if it's in with your regular sub then they should be treated as deities.

The Shadow of the Colossus remake retains the original's clumsiness while doubling its majesty

Wyrm

6 months ago

'The controls, while tweaked, aren't necessarily graceful, though I've always felt that was kind of the point of Shadow of the Colossus, a game in which the real majesty is preserved for those beasts themselves while you blunder and bludgeon your way around them.'

SOTC is a wonderful game, but dodgy controls are dodgy controls, no need to make excuses for them.

How on Earth are they going to fill cities that big with any kind of meaningful content? Itís going to look incredible but feel completely empty and detached.

@ricpamiwor Nobody knows for sure, but the suggestion is that Legion took it back over 10 million. Even at its lowest ebb it was still in the millions.

And if you're willing to accept you won't be doing the cutting edge, end-game content, there is plenty to keep a casual player happy. They know their player base covers a wide demographic now and want to be able to cater to everyone.

@Naetharu Ah ok fair play then! I don't have a guild anymore, I did try to join one but I just don't have the time to commit to a raid schedule. I'll just have to stick to LFR to see the content

@Naetharu I'm in a similar boat, play for a few weeks, see whats going on and leave again. But we both know that by not being ingrained in a guild and having that elation of progression and successful teamwork amongst friends raiding together we aren't playing the game as is really intended.

@djarcas WoW would not be great for VR in terms of actual play, healing a raid in VR would be horrendous!

BUT in terms of getting to be there, to actually stand in these places we've been a part of for a good chunk of our lives, it'd be quite overwhelming. I want this a great deal :)

@superfurry These days you'll do just fine. If you want to experience the content you can dip in for a month or so on a new expansion and feel satisfied. Then go back at the end and see all the patch content. I've been doing that since Cataclysm and it's satiated my need. The fact they're far more focused on story these days means it can be an effective single-player experience.

From a Souls fan - this is a fantastic game with some niggles, but not niggles that get in the way of the fantastic combat.

The DLC content is flipping rock hard though if you go in straight after your first play through, you need to do NG+ to keep up with the suggested level. That's made me take a little break!

I've played and enjoyed almost all of Telltales games, but that Batman series was just dull. Nothing happened that surprised me, no real gut wrenching decisions, it was just a Batman story like every other Batman story. Wolf Among Us was rich with potential for more, it's frustrating to see that left to rot.
