    There’s a “soft-lock”; you aim by facing towards someone, but you don’t have to get the crosshair exactly on them – but not from the back of your head, no.

    Good show so far. Only seen 5 minutes though. I dont know what the deal with the Twitch replays are, but it takes ages to preload (buffer). So I have to take 5 minute breaks to let it preload properly.

    Please please please put this videos on youtube also. I know they get there eventually. But why the long wait?

    Good year review, since your unlike to have any other dissenting voices here, I’ll throw my two cents.  First…Are you even in beta? Don’t answer but some of the talking points make me question that.

    So we can agree about NDA, it has to get lifted. Honestly I think there is a reason NDA is still up but NDA sigh.

    So the forbes article, when I look at his prediction of disaster, I see the game as being a huge let down for those who buy it. If you look at the 1.7mil likes on face book and watch their text, they have no idea what they are about to buy. I think they will easy clear 1 million copies on the first weekend…maybe day. But no launch is smooth, and many of the players will be so outraged over game play (because they had some doe eyed bushy tailed wild dream of what eso is not).

    Now since you brought up wildstar, if you look at their face book a mere 143k like, which means that those folks have a much smaller initial market but likely more dedicated fans (who likely know much more than an eso fan about their game).

    So when eso sells huge initially it will still naturally leave a bitter taste in many peoples mouths (an eventuality to all over-hyped games) which can have a pack mentality, wildstar doesn’t have to worry about that, they simply have to hope other games slowly bleed their subscribers.

    Sadly they should have released both pc and consoles at the same time, any console players are going to be watching the pc release and that will hurt console sales. Especially when planetside 2 and eso are likely to come out the same month and planetside player don’t have to pay a sub or even playstation plus, it’s gonna be a hard sell for ps4 players.

    Collectors edition should always be out of game; games end, statues you keep until you lose them. Still have my level 70 characters statues.

    I liked the Vodcast so much, that I watched the whole thing.

    I can’t wait for the launch and will definitely keep coming to Tamriel Foundry for more ESO news and chat.  Even though mmo launches typically have their issues, as long as I can log on and play as long as I want, I’ll just consider them part of the overall experience, and they’ll be something that I can share and laugh about years down the road.

    I think that I’m set on Dragonknight, as I like the various skills, from defensive buffs, self heals, support and ones like fiery reach, that I can use to assist a struggling teammate, or just bring my target to me without having to run them down.  I just have to settle on medium or heavy armor for my dual-wield melee character who’s also going to be doing some archery, though primarily a front line fighter and likely off-tank.

    Welcome to the end of your life, and I promise its going to hurt!

     skyrim sold 13mill on consoles. a large group of console fans have been hardcore TES fans since morrowind, not counting prior pc fans. having played the beta i can gaurantee the games in great shape for TES fans. fps players will probly prefer ps2, whil rpg console gamers and even some mmo pc players will be getting ESO. im gettting it for pc and ps4 and iam far from the most hardcore fan.

     you can predict all ya want but will see in a few months, my prediction regardless of wheter w* is good or not i bet it doesnt even out sell ESO console sales. you forget console players get a free trial and all ESO accounts get a free month of game time anyways lol. they will be hooked by then. i spent all weekend in beta slept 6hrs tops.  People hooked by the 40man raids of wildstar (which even peaked my intrest) and cartoony graphics will give wildstar a try and good for them game looks good theres plenty of market for both games. hell even swtor is making profit rofl., but people have severly underestimated ESO. this is the new generations wow/eq/ this game will dominate the market and force out titan.

    What you talking about? You have to aim at the enemy to hit the enemy… there is no autotargeting… Even in WoW you had to face the enemy to shoot at him, atleast thats how it was when i played it years ago.

     

    And the thing with the forbes article is that hes simply fishing views for his article by making the article to be as “controversial” as possible so that there is huge uproar in the community and everyone goes to read that article giving it loads of views and therefor making him get more money from it.
