Yes but I'm a global channel and don't just look at EU/NA when it comes to considering a global release. I'm Malaysian and the Steam page just says it's not available at all to me and it won't be coming to many regions soon. It's like how many Asian MMOs release in Russia first before going to NA, or NA without releasing in EU. Just because there's a Russian server live doesn't mean I consider it getting a global release.
So much shitty MMO-s trying to BANG THE INNOCENT PLAYERS WALLETS ... And give nothing for it Low populated pay to win games
People Stop searching for Perfect MMO it was made and released many Years ago I have tried Many Maaany MMO-s but still nothing brings the quality like BLIZZARD so join me in WORLD OF WARCRAFT REAL MMO that is PAY TO PLAY not PAY TO WIN
no one should buy wild west online, It looks great, I bought it really early, and it was cool in the alpha because i thought they would improve it y the release, but so far there was like no changes at all, theres terrible pve, and like no tutorial at all
I picked up WoW in early Burning Crusade. Played through late Wrath of the Lich King. Switched over to Warhammer Online because the PvP was a blast. Then that game died and no MMO has been able to keep my attention past a few months since then. My problem with MMOs is that I am really good at them. I always end up joining a guild and after a couple months they want to make me an officer. I hate being a guild officer so I usually say no. But eventually they keep asking and I say yes and then end up hating everything and quitting the game after a week or two as an officer. I probably just need to learn how to stick to my guns on that and could probably actually get into a game again. Camelot Unchained has my attention right now out of all the games on the list. My advice when it comes to MMOs is to try to play it in the way that you have the most fun instead of playing the "best" way.
Ah it's become a bit of a discussion on this video about what the 'massive' means for the genre. Some people say it like you do, hundreds or thousands, but how many hundred is hard to pinpoint. Is 100 too few? 150? 250? Then there's the issues with MMOs that have thousands of players but because of instancing there are only ever less than 100 people that you will ever see together. Does that still count as 'massive'? What about games like Salem where it can support thousands of players but there are less than 100 people playing? Is just the capability of supporting thousands make it 'massive' or do you actually need the player base? All these questions have many different answers and it's hard for me to say who is right and who is wrong, making it hard for me to draw a line in the sand for videos like this one. The only things that everyone can agree on is that 'massive' is at least more than 64 players and that an MMO needs to have a persistent world. Besides that, it's a huge argument.
Well. Survival games are usually around 20 - 30 people. There are no quests, no end-game. Just build and survive and kill each other. There's no real point to the game other than the difficulty of surviving. So they're more on the line of a Battle Royale game with base building and a poorly balanced hunger system.
The first M in the acronym stands for "Massively," which would imply a player base in at least the hundreds or thousands.
That, a quest line, dungeons, and some sort of end-game would constitute an MMORPG. Even the very first big name originals like EverQuest and Asheron's Call all had dungeons, end-game bosses, and hundreds of quests.
For all the crying and doomsaying, I must admit that WoW made the right move in shifting towards a more casual-friendly model of MMORPG. If they were still pushing 40-man's with no LFD tool, I'd have uninstalled long ago. As it stands, BfA looks better than allllll 20 of these bad boys.
Well if they use that footage to show off the MMO then that's what I'm going to use. That's their representation, so I assume that's how they want the game being seen. If they are too lazy to record new footage that's on them. However, benefit of the doubt, did they start with that UI and change it more recently? Either way though, the video footage I use here is still on the Steam page, so if it's wrong they are misrepresenting their own game.
Was enjoying this video, few titles I haven't heard of then get to No. 9 and you mention "Wild West Online" You realise the money man for the game is the biggest scammer in the whole gaming community yer? Don't feature shit makes you look bad.
Yeah, those are the reasons why I put the words of warning in the video, but I'm still not going to write a hit piece on something that doesn't exist yet. Now that it exists, if I talk about it again I would say something different.
Way before release and on many forum threads the name Sergey Titov was associated; he was the executive producer of Infestation: Survivor Stories/The War Z/Romero's Aftermath dubbed by some worst video games of all time.
Anyway I hope some reading this exchange, some will absolutely avoid being scammed.
This video was made before it was really playable, so it had no reviews to reference back then. When this video was made, none of the controversies were confirmed, just alleged. I'm not writing a hit piece unless I can be absolutely sure, which is hard to do for games in the future. It's easy to say 'it's got horrible reviews' now, now that there are reviews.
Mate your tone and cryptic warning, very much understated the complete fiasco this game and the Russian backer has created. (and/or previous scams) It didn't sound very serious, considering you mention as much concerns with other games, that at least try to do the right thing. Wild West Online hasn't got mixed reviews like some others but "mostly negative". If you really wish to warn folks you say "avoid this crap, its a scam" Easy :)
So many other games you could have included like Project Gorgon, which does an amazing job and due for full release in 2019.
This video isn't about hyping people up, it's about informing people. It's not a feature, it's a warning. If I didn't include it, many might not hear about the issues and in this video itself I say "Weird controversy", "Shady business practices", "Be careful", "Wait until release". If anyone takes what I said about WWO in this video as any kind of endorsement or feature then I don't know how else to warn people.
I have played some MMOs over the years finding that most are grindy and to hard to keep up with.....Until I started playing Elder Scrolls Online...well after they went but to play. With the current meta as of now withholding the game has alot of pros and some cons. I've actually generated a heap of online friends from the game and find myself logging into discord to talk to said friends even if Im not going to log into Elder Scrolls Online. Caught you video late but thanks for it because we were window shopping for more mmos to get into so we could port our guild to what ever sounded the best....
If you are a fan of Super Heroes, City of Heroes and MMORPG's then i ask you to please go check out a new MMORPG that is coming out 2019 (closed beta late 2018), its called Ship of Heroes! Go to shipofheroes.com and give them your support if you are at all interested. They also have about 20 videos on youtube if you liked to see the game being made.
I will give an update...
Bless = complete failure
Shroud of the Avatar = complete mediocrity
Dark and Light = complete scam by developers with the worst reputation
Pantheon Rise of the Fallen = looking amazing.
Sorry about that. I'm terrible at accents so this is the only one I have. For reference, my mom is from Birmingham UK but my dad is Malaysian and I'm born a bred in Malaysia my whole life. This is what that sounds like.
WWO has been going back and forth changing everything. They have absolutely no clue what they're doing and keep changing their mind, and their business practices are indeed very shady.
Identity sounds like Real Life online lel.
Bless Online has already failed in two regions, I think that means it's very bad and they're desperate on their third try.
Camelot is about the only one with real potential though I hope one of the superhero ones get to turn into something good, because CO and DCUO have been disappointing.
As far as I know, City of Titians is the most developed and well funded of the three Superhero mmos. And at the time of writing the release date is the fall of 2018. And last I heard, the other two mmos, Valance and Ship of Heroes failed at their kick starters.
why is every new mmorpg crowd funded and selling early access pre-alpha games just make your fucking game and sell it when it's ready ffs can't we get a proper fucking company that doesn't need to be helped by the consumers in the first place.
thanks for the response and i understand the situation but i am just so jaded from this toxic cylce created by the video game industry, game developers might actually be able to make a new successful MMORPG if they didn't have to worry about pleasing all the people that have already bought the game and are testing it's unfinished state.
To make a game not needing early access you're going to need a publisher or investor willing to risk the money instead. Since 90% of MMOs don't make it, no one wants to put in the money except fans. Not to mention, any publisher willing to put in that many millions of dollars would force extra monetisation, such as season passes and lootboxes, as they are there to make money on their investments. Unfortunately we can't have it both ways. Without the money up front, there's no way to pay designers, rent, R&D, testers, managers, advertising, programmers, etc. You can't ask people to work for free for 3 years then hope the game sells enough to pay a 3 year salary lump sum to everyone.
Sandbox, sandbox, sandbox, sandbox, sandbox, sandbox. When i hear that anymore, i don't think "fun, freestyle gameplay out in the world" i think "the developers are too lazy to make content, so they're depending on the players to make and run it for them." Seeing a themepark MMO anymore is like seeing a unicorn.
They all look the same.. After watching this video i only remember one game (not the name) where characters weren't humans. Everything else look the same , medieval realistic characters. Why they limit themselves only to realistic or cartoonish styles? There is so many things yet that could have been done in mmo games. Looking at these I can just smell the boredom of doing quests all day , teaming up with people to do some daily dungeons, level up then gear up and waste the entire day doing these. Maybe im already too old but every mmorpg smells the same. They do develop some nice fighting systems that are enjoyable and look pretty epic but without the rest of the game being appealing it just makes me want to throw up out of boredom.
Ashes of creation (many of the eq next team), Panthenon and to a much lesser extent then those first two Chronicles of Elyria. Tho as I am currently in Gw2 and FF14 so if those games are all as meh as Bless is and was long before America went gaga over that 3x failure I am perfectly happy where I am for the next few years. Was a fun video and even saw 4 titles i had no idea existed.
Crowfall has raised 20 million dollars and doing very well. Chronicles of Elyria has raised 4.5 million dollars. You probably aren't interested but some of these have decent playerbases already and they haven't released yet. If you're comparing a list of 20 unfinished games in a 2 year period to the great MMOs of the last decade, that's not a fair comparison. The best year ever for MMOs had like 3-4 great MMOs releasing. On average, you get 1-2 good MMOs releasing in a single year, so we can at most expect 4 of the ones mentioned in this list to become large and very successful or as few as just 2, though some of the others will be niche successes.
This is what kills me about MMO's blocky, static movement are just "normal" MMO's but highly animated and smooth combat movements are somehow "action" MMO's. Personally, any MMO that does NOT have smooth and well animated combat system is not worth my time.
I'm most excited about: Identity, Camelot Unchained, Chronicles Of Elyria, Worlds Adrift, City Of Titans, Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen, and Ascent: Infinite Realm, and Crowfall. (Have to look into those "Bonus Games")
Comming out from FFXIV this year after playing it for over 2 years, i feel like i have no where to go :( i guess MMOs are dead for me, i see no other MMO that competes with FFXIV for me to go into. Some people say ESO is par with FFXIV i don't agree. So its sad for me, i just got tired of FFXIV, low paced of content now and the new content got a tad repetitive, i know more or less how the progression will work and what not, it just lost the charm for me, much of my friends have stopped playing too so, when i was playing in the last months i was basically alone. :-( just helping new players, sooooo bored.
It might be good but the monetisation model is out of the ordinary and very expensive. They're even charging extra for Alpha and Beta access, which is the reverse of normal business practices even by AAA companies. Early money has more value, which is why games are often sold at a slight discount if you pre-order or buy into it early. By charging extra for early purchases, they are doubling down on profits on an unfinished game. The $75 package has $55 worth of value plus the 'Tormentor's Visage'. Unless that's worth $20 by itself, it's exorbitantly priced. It can be a great game but it's expensive and that alone will scare a lot of people away, which is true. People are free to buy what they want and if they love the game that's great, but unexpectedly high prices is something of a red flag to me. As a comparison, Crowfall is going for $50 for early access and that's the release price of the game, so even if you buy it after release it's still $50 rather than charging extra for an unfinished game.
Absolutely enjoyed this video, absolutely and I love and appreciate the fact that you included a lot of information regarding not just the games but the idea behind it and the state the company is in...very good you gave me a lot more direction of which games to consider , brilliantly done
I grew up playing rpg's/mmorpg's and it is and was realy hard to convince someone to play this kind of games if they arnt intrested in fantasy stuff... Some jears ago when the Lotr films came out it was easier to explain to someone new wath mmo are about... The first reaction i get now and then is every time the same... "Wath!? No i dont wanna play somthing like WoW and get fat!" 😝
On the other side its easier to get an Anime fan to play those shitty asian mmo's bcause of big jiggly boobs, lolly caracters, big af swords and sexy full plate armors lol.
Bla bla blaaa.... I just want boob physics and lolicon characters like Elins.
I'd love Tera only if it wasn't so fucking repetitive, censored, and locked down regarding trading.
I wanna fly like in Perfect World
I want huge open worlds like Aion
I want boob physics like Blade & Soul
I want character customization like APB
I want action like Planetside
I want a skill setups and passives like Path of Exile
I want graphics like Asker
Is that too hard?
I currently play FFXIV, but I will go back to wow when the new expansion comes out. And yes, I realize my comment is going to bring in a few insults and a few negative opinions.. but who cares? In the end I do what makes me happy.. and if it doesn't affect you, what do you care? :)
Would love to see a good new MMO. It'd be happy if a mix of WOW and FFXIV came out.. maybe with a little LOTR to top it off.
good videos, might give a sub, could you add minimum requirements to released games (text in corner is enuff)? atleast cpu wise and maybe gpu, if you are about to build yourself new computer and thinking piece by piece what components to take you want atleast those minimums depending the games you wanting to play...
Well from 20 only Identity and Elyria is interesting. Others lack of graphics (2018 cmon) or brains coz sandbox and pvp oriented (we got better pvp games already).
So in the end we got only WoW, SWTOR for SW fans, TESO and Division 1 as pew-pew mmo. Thats kinda pathetic...
I keep checking lists like these, just hoping that some day a game will come along that might be able to tug me away from WoW. but man....not a single one of these games looks appealing long-term. I love that I can play high-end competitive PvP *AND* high-end competitive PvE in WoW. there's not a game that's come along that has literally both, at such competitive levels. : /
If you asked me after this video, I couldn't tell any of these apart. Nothing new, 19 sword and sorcery, one modern day, zero scifi or anything else that would break the mold. The world seriously needs World of Starcraft by now. :p
All of these look pretty bad.. Crowfall being one exception, but even then the UI looks buggy. "Massive siege PvP" worries me in a lot of these too because ESO tried that and it was boring as hell. Rush a keep, get killed to a big bomb spell or weapon, then walk back for 10 minutes after dying.
Pretty sad that not one of these interests me at all or near as much that WoW did. I'd still rather play WoW and its 13 years since I started playing that. None of these new mmo's have a story or immersive quest lines. 2018 has been a pretty shit year overall and with all the same and failing game titles coming out I'll just wait till the end of 2019-2020. By then new graphics/computer standards will be set and maybe by then all that shit story lines and pvp gameplay and this "OPEN WORLD" bullshit will finally be seen as the broken joke it's always been.
I started playing Mmo's when Funcom put Anarchy Online, the GW1, then WoW played up to Warlords of Dreanor, then Swtor before EA started messing the game up then played GW2 now I'm playing Black Desert online. Been playing MMO's for awhile most ppl I know like story driven games some pvp, pve mix makes the game fun..
Well they got over 1 mil in funding, they are 1 year delayed.
They refuse to show any real content only prop renders.
Even tough there environment is supposed to be finished.
They ban the skeptics and critics a like they even used racial slurs in the twitch chat.
When someone asked a valid question, they are unable to get a payment service.
PayPal is investigating them for fraud.
Do i need to go on.?
