  1. 1. Would you like to see a Project Eternity MMO?

    • No, I don't like the sound of that at all, but I'd probably buy it anyway.

Have you never been trolled before? Let it go.

 

 

The problem is that the proper meaning of Trolling has been lost. It used to be fairly clever, like this and the fat issues thread whereby folks didn't actually realise they'd been trolled (q.v. Bugaboo on the old Eric Noah 3E boards who was a twisted troll genius). Now it just means brain-dead or abusive posting.

 

* sigh *

 

Mcmanasaur has the aura of potential greatness about him as an old-skool troll but at the moment he's a diamond in the rough. One to watch.

I'm sure he'll do much better in the Project Eternity 2 forum. For now he needs to eat his troll food, so he can grow big and strong, and more troll-like.

Well actually, in my experience here it means posting things people don't agree with.

So what you're saying is that you do eagerly anticipate a money-grabbing sequel, possibly in the form of an MMO?

At Obsidian Entertainment, we believe in supporting and raising a future generation of community entertainers. If they're any good.

Right....

 

I'll gladly throw money at a sequel, assuming that its MMO form stands for Minutely Multiplayer and Offline Roleplaying Game (sure, they can throw in some Baldur's Gate level multiplayer if they really, really, really want).

Mcmanusaur may be trolling, but he hasn't been actively trying to insult people, so I'm ok with this. I've certainly been entertained by this thread so far.

Maybe PE shouldn't be a cRPG, but an MMO after all. :devil:

 

A weak troll uses ad hominem.

If you find the trolling in this thread clever, then is says more about you than the meaning of the word. This troll is so obvious and ridiculous that the OP invites to be ridiculed.. hence he comes across as the type who thinks any type of attention is better than no attention. He is a perfect example of someone trying too hard, and some people expose themselves, further, by thinking this OP has made successful or clever trolling.

Okay, now it just sounds like I've really upset you. For the record, I was simply curious to see if any people here could be "tricked" into admitting they'd like a Project Eternity MMO if I framed the question favorably. I'm sorry you feel so strongly, but I really think you might be trying harder than me right now.

I get what you're saying, but here I think the evidence suggests otherwise... why would people spend more money on MMO's than any other kind of game if not for superior quality?

That's a ridiculous proposal. By that logic you could also argue that the Twilight series is of superior literature quality in comparison to Ulysses...

Let's be serious; all the good RPG series (The Old Republic, Elder Scrolls, etc.) these days are being made into fancy, newfangled MMO's. It practically goes without saying that the MMORPG model is proven to offer the benefit of a greater social gaming experience with absolutely no costs with regard to narrative depth, mechanics, graphics, or any other measure of quality, so what's there to lose? Should Project Eternity be next?

 

Why not take it one step further and simply make a MMOFPSRTSCRPG with puzzles?

If done right, then this could work. It would require the game to be fundamentally different than most other MMOs. The plot would have to be integral to the game, rather than just a reason to kill things. You would not see people doing the exact same quest that you are. The game's plot would come from the interactions of the various players, rather than a script. You wouldn't find a group just to be able to kill big things or get better equipment. Basically, it would be similar to a table-top game, just with many more people. The game would be one large "roleplaying server." It would require a melding of the minds between both the developers and all the people who play the game. I think it is unlikely that such a thing would happen, but if it does, then it could redeem MMORPGs.

I think it sounds like the game would be missing sandbox aspects.

Didn't answered the pool because neither answers apply to me. So no, I don't want PA to be MMO, and if they planned to do it I would probable think more before I pledge. And I don't agree that MMO comes with no prejudice to narrative depth for instance, actually I think the very opposite. No MMO please.

Yeah, The Old Republic, right. I couldn't tell if it is an abysmal MMO or an offline RPG with monthly subscription. What I could tell, though, that it is a damn shame and an utter fail. Except, maybe, for Star Wars drones. No disrespect to SW drones meant, everyone has their weakness.

 

So MMO sounds like the way to go if your goal is broken hearts and shattered dreams. After playing ME3 I can tell that's what Bioware specialises in these days, so best leave it to them.

Where is the third option for "HELL NO"?

 

Seriously you want an MMO, what the hell are you doing here? Go throw your money at WoW rather than try to destroy one of the very few old school RPGs being made in this era.

So you'll name a random troll in game McManusaur? So we can kill it with fire?
