Oh dear...

...somehow this announcement inspires me to develop this motivational poster blurb:

"Realtime Worlds: Maybe it shouldn't have happened to them. But with some other gaming companies, it most should of."

warning bells started ringing when they said it wasn't an MMO.

Cryptic is terrible. I would go on an SoE product shopping spree before I gave Cryptic another cent.

I wonder what the Cryptic team thinks about all this hate.

Well, I guess this game won't be an MMO anyway. I assume it will be an attempt at something like Dragon's Age with more co-op play built in. Or... well... past Neverwinter games with an increased focus on co-op play.

Thanks for the news Massively. Guess we can ignore this game from now on since it is neither massive nor persistent. I am fine with it, I've lost all faith in Cryptic. Fun super hero creator - painfully dull game after a month of gameplay though.

Wow...Sounds more like Gauntlet than D&D.

This announcement reminds me of the latest Grinch remake. Take a beloved ip with a passionate fan base who grew up on the lore and then add Jim Carey.

Except that relative to Cryptic, Jim Carey is Sir Alec.

I like it too, What I don't like is that because you like a game the community here has decided to grey out your text, because you like something here, and the jackass who posted below gets a higher rating when he is just being a jackass. I think the community here is one of the worst online which is a shame because the writers put a lot of hard work here and try to get everybody involved without excluding anyone.

Nick, visit mmorpg.com forums and reconsider your "worst community" stance. PS All aol sites use the rating system. I'd rather have people get greyed (and wow I can still read them) than wallow in the "community" there.

I like ChampO and didn't mind STO (but not enough to buy it at launch). Cryptic have made a number of mistakes, but I have seen their titles improve across alpha / beta and post-launch.

However, I'm also happy with a casual MMO experience.

The entirety of gaming would have to rise up and tell me that this game was amazing before I'd even consider buying it.

I actually feel bad for the rank and file folks at Cryptic. It must suck to work for a company with such a horrible reputation.

So we get another reskin of CO, only with less players per instance.

Also, we have to pay a subscription for a game where we have to make our own content.

The original NWN could do a hell of a lot more, was moddable, could hold more players per instance and would allow you to be a GM.

Why in the name of all that's holy would anyone be so catastrophically stupid to buy into this crap?

To quote Hemtroll:

"I've said this before but I'll say it again, all this talk of NWN and Atari/Cryptic hurts my heart. If I hear any kind of official confirmation regarding this I'm going to eat a puppy."

Well...? lol

Who wants to bet this garbage of a game comes out in early 2011, to try and beat the SWTOR and GW2 storms.
