So technically, this would be Blizzard's first new game IP in a long time...

Ahaha eSports MMO that's fucking rich. I mean, it's just rumours at this point, but I could totally see Blizzard throwing money away on something like that.

They already throw a lot of money at WoW Arena, and that gets a pretty decent turnout in attendance and on streams, though they only have a few events a year for it compared to other tournaments in other games. So, why not?

However, from that article (if any fraction of it is true), it sounds interesting. I doubt I'd stop playing WoW for it, though.

They've been saying that Titan's something completely new for awhile now, but it's nice to see the rumor mill confirming it.

Hey, if they can make MMORPG combat that is actually watchable, more power to 'em. I mean, I'm skeptical as hell, but at least they're finally experimenting with the whole "How do we run a tournament that isn't bad?" thing with SC2 now.

Also, I really feel like panzerfaust should be in here ranting about Jay Wilson, as I believe all people who have ever played Diablo 3 are legally bound to do.

But I don't read the rumors at that link that way. It sounds a lot like WoW. MMORPG, 3rd person, Tab targeting, in-world AH, "Blizzard style" graphics. It's getting a new engine and other new bullshit (lore), but I don't see how these rumors give the impression that it's completely new.

If Jay Wilson is the guy who stuck to his guns on D3 and told the "loser" D2 devs and fans to piss off, then I can't imagine he's going to bring a lot to the creation of a completely new experience.

Good luck with it, Blizz.

Well got back into Bordercrack 2. I know it isn't a real RPG but whatever I just bought the season pass.

I been wanting to start Ertian Odyssey IV for some time now but I was kinda forced into Luigi's Mansion (because of friends wanting to co-op). I might switch to Ertian Odyssey IV as my go to 3DS game if Luigi's Mansion doesn't need to have all the upgrades to do co-op and just co-op when they want to.

I finally got around to taking FFXIII-2 out of the plastic. I've had it since release, but it just sat there since I was playing SWTOR & WoW for a while. After playing Ni No Kuni, I've been back into the console RPG groove.

Anyway, I'm in the minority that I loved FFXIII. It wasn't perfect, it was linear, but I loved the combat with the Paradigm Shifts. I'm having a really hard time getting into FFXIII-2 so far. I've played it for about 2 & 1/2 hours and I just can't get into it much. Does it get better?

Serah whining about Lightning all of the time reminds me of Hope whining about his mom. I like that they still have the Paradigm Shifts, but I'm not too crazy about the animal-link stuff. I'd rather have normal party members than the Pokemon tack-on.


I have both sitting in plastic waiting for me to play it. I have played all the FF games (even the imports) and have kept putting these off because of the general consensus of it being mediocre.

I was extremely stoked that Square decided to milk the cash cow and release the old RPGs on mobile devices. Own quite a few of my favorites including the pinnacle of RPGs in my mind, Chrono Trigger. Probably due to a mix of nostalgia, memories and the game being amazing.

On a side note anyone play Dimensions yet for mobile gaming? It's supposed to be a new, old-school FF game.

Well, it seems to be a completely new universe (world, lore, whatever you want to call it), which is what I meant. That they're doing something that isn't set in the worlds of WarCraft, StarCraft, or Diablo for the first time in many years is pretty significant.

As for the other stuff, it's always been obvious that they weren't going to stray far from the Blizzard house style and/or the types of games they know how to make... we are talking about Blizzard here, after all.

27 hours to go. $3.68 million raised on Kickstarter so far, and another $90,000 raised via PayPal. Passing Project Eternity is pretty much inevitable.

Started Etrian Odyssey IV. Didn't put any real time on it, just booted up the game and did the first quest. I have to applaud the game for having little to no tutorial. I mean the tutorial it gives is for features that I need to know, and it does it with simple pictures.

I am getting tired of these big long tutorials in games. I already know how to move, I don't need to be reminded of it :lol: through long sequences. Anyway EO IV is an awesome game.

No, no. Canada is synonymous with trickery.

Also Bioware.

The Bioware that released The Old Republic was the studio in Texas, though. We are not responsible for any MMORPGs to my knowledge.

EDIT: I thought you did one between this one and mine, though. Guess not.

Oh God, two RPG threads simulatneously. Someone ban this sick filth.

Also, in order from least to most: Wasteland 2, Shadowrun Returns, Torment, and at the top, Project Eternity. I only contributed to Torment and Eternity, though my Torment donation got me a copy of Wasteland 2, as well. The actual operating budget for Wasteland 2 is, like, half that of Torment.
