E3 has been? I can't believe I missed it. I thought if E3 was on there would have been all these great announcements and I would be looking forward to a few games being released right now.

Really, no MMOs at E3? Well in that case we wasted a whole week of 16-hour days working on posts about the MMOs at E3! I must have imagined it all! :D

In case you missed it: http://www.massively.com/tag/e3-2010/ -- and we'll have an all-in-one roundup post coming when our final posts are in. We covered a TON of games coming out of Asia too. I could find at least nine just this week in the E3 posts alone.

You guys seem really grumpy today. Would anything make you happy?! :)

What would make me happy? The announcement of an MMO with action-RPG-like combat, a new IP which combines sci-fi and fantasy, an epic backstory which is combined seamlessly into the gameplay, a diabloesque loot system, levelling with minimum grind, partying optional (but beneficial) and a new take on grouping (eg, no healer needed).

That would make me happy.

There was nothing in terms of MMOs at E3. Bioware showed off a lackluster CG trailer instead of showing more of the game off. Well rightly so seeing as the little gameplay we did see was really really bad looking. Horrible character models and animations with missions that seemed like your standard WoW quest, only now you have to sit through 5 mins of boring voice over work. Atleast in WoW it is text you can skip. I mean really, I play an MMO to make my own story, for players to make the story, like in EVE. I don't want it to be some linear experience like the first 10 levels of AoC.

I believe FF14 was there but that'll be another crap FF game and MMO. Probably one with a UI designed for console, no proper mouse support, you're stuck to the ground and it just has prerendered backgrounds you can't go to.

The rest of it is crap, like all the stuff that won here, it wont have an impact, noone will care about it but maybe some Asian countries who love to grind.

The only thing that got me excited was the Warhammer 40K MMO. However everyones saying it'll be instanced and zoned, if that is the case then I don't care for the game lol.

I wish we could have the world simulation games like UO or SWG instead of these theme park WoW clones.

There were actually alot of Asian MMOs (from Taiwan, China, Korea and Japan) at the show. They already have English trailers and stuff to attract the English publishers. It's just that Massively did not cover them. And mind you, some of the MMOs are really innovative, not your usual Asian grinder. How about a voice controlled MMO, where speaking commands through the mic can control your some aspects of gameplay?

I agree about Worlds, not WoW theme-park clones, enough of that already. Not likely to see anything different though from the "mainstream" developers, only hope is indies.

Why people have been making noise about Warhammer 40K is beyond me, they didn't tell, or show much and nothing new or different. The emperor has no clothes. What's the big deal?

Actually the Emperor has been near death for thousands of years and sits on the Golden Throne that keeps his brain alive.

Has the NDA for LEGO Universe lifted? Otherwise I can't say anything other than it didn't stay on my hard drive very long...

Same here, I'm a big Free Realms fan, so I was excited for a game like Lego Universe, but even I hit the uninstall button within a couple weeks, Clearly the author hasn't gotten a beta invite yet.

How long ago did you guys uninstall? Maybe they spiffed it up since then?

No mention of SWTOR. You guys are brave - I admire that.

I think it was mentioned somewhere around here that even though the SWTOR announcements and cinematic where intriguing...the actually hands on gameplay of the demo wasn't exactly "ground breaking." This doesn't mean the game is terribad by any means...it just didn't catch their attention as the other games mentioned above. /shrug

I will also add, it looks like Black Phrophecy are taking up the flag of "poster child for F2P's" from where Allods fumbled it.

Don't you know F2P = Money in the bags... It is like Uncle Scrooge in Ducktales with his tower vault. Just swimming in your money...

Well it certainly will be an experiement of how F2P's with MT's will add up with something that has a high production to it. And whether they'll past everything onto the consumer when they try to cover the cost for making the game. That is, make the mechanics so the player is forced to cough up at the cash shop if they want to go anywhere or do anything reasonable. For that reason (amoung others) is why I wholly distrust BP's business model choice.
