sandbox = good
bigpoint = bad
f2p = bad
browser based = bad
quite likely pay to win as the rest of their titles = bad



4/5 bad = baaaaaaaaaaaad

Agreed. Bigpoint mirrors everything wrong in our society in their games. If I want to play real life, I'll go outside and get beat on by those with more money than me and get some sun while I'm at it.

Yeah I pretty much agree with you. Here is how I would rate it-

sandbox = good
bigpoint = this is a joke right?
f2p = good if it is done right like Lotro
browser based = bad
quite likely pay to win as the rest of their titles = bad

Let's hope it's a lot less tedious than the television series, at least for the 10% who enjoy PvP-based games, the other 90% will doubtless pass on it anyway.

actually there is a shit load of people who enjoy pvp games. look how many people play shooters/RTS/MOBA, all are pvp based games. just because no one has made a good pvp mmo doesnt mean people dont like pvping. Guild wars 2 is a good example of a game that is gonna be mostly played by pvpers.

As a MASSIVE GRRM fan, I was really skeptical when I heard the announcement, but after this meeting and demonstration I am more hopeful for the game. I will be checking it out, even if it is browser and F2P which are not usual for me.

I wonder if questing will follow the typical style of the storytelling in the books.

Epic Quest Chain - Mount!
Get a colt from a local breeder in return if you help his local village. Help his local village, but get drafted into war. So south and get caught up in politics. Compete in a swordmanship competition. Get caught up in grab for the throne, flee the country on a ship before your family gets entirely wiped out.

You are now thousands of leagues from home. You are now lvl 50. You wonder what happened to the colt; you still don't have a mount.

Yeah I'm sorta trolling.

"The Game is coming" is not a phrase that "elicits some powerful and mixed emotions" in fans of George Martin or A Song of Ice and Fire. Is that an awkward "Winter is Coming" reference? Ugh. Awkward.

@LoveYouSomeEric

since its BigPoint, the most accurate description would be "Pay To Win-ter is coming"

It is Bigpoint. Everything you need will be in the cash shop.

They will essentially completely ruin this game and leave a scar on the IP.

Read all books, love them and GRRM is grreat!

Still...
BigPoint == browser games == pass

NOW this might not even be a browser game, but... stil...

BigPoint => check on previous games and choices => pass.

Why did it have to be Bigpoint ? Why not Arena Net, Blizzard, Bioware or hell anyone else than Bigpoint :(

WTB in-game Viper with melted gold layered on top and an extra 9th slot from Bigpoint's game shop!

;P

Well, let's see what they do with it. I'll try to remain optimistic particularly if they really pull off a way to get power with combat.

Wait a minute. Hbo brought them the throne? ... Don't they still need it? What about season 2? Give the throne back, Bigpoint!
