You know somethings, Sony Online Entertainment makes some GREAT games. Just for some reason they have a fetish of destroying them through patches and upgrades later on.

- Planetside
- SWG

In regards to SWG (which is the single source of all my SOE angst) the word destroy comes nowhere close to doing justice to the debacle that ensued once they started to "fix" the game. Monkeys in a circle jerk...

I was wondering the same thing. Comic books from 2008 were advertising the game.

Original Everquest was dope up until after Dragons of Norrath, lots of in-game content, VERY good lore and storyline, etc...

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes would have been a great game if they didn't pre-jack release it/run out of funding.

Sony gets a lot of undue hate.

Looking back at all the MMO's I have ever played Everquest 2 was the best and my favorite by far. WOW, FFXI, Warhammer Online, Star Trek Online just dont quite measure up to EQ2.

If SOE had not published EQ2 then I think it would have done much better against WOW, plus it would have helped if it wasnt so hard on systems when it came out.

Actually, you might want to reserve your ire for Lucasarts. They were the driving force behind making it more like their OTHER Lucasarts games. I heard a revoke of the license to use the Star wars Genre was in the mix.

Considering what I have seen of Lucas's ventures, I'm not surprised.

This has the potential to be truly awesome. Unfortunately I just don't have the time to play an MMO.

I hope thats not true because if it is I have a feeling they will hold that over the heads of BioWare and Star Wars: The Old Republic. Bioware makes great games but if Lucas Arts is calling the shots its going to be a flop. Hope they are just throwing money at Bioware for the game and not forcing them in a direction they dont want.

Actually that game was damn good. I never really got that far, I think up to level 70 pally? But the game just seemed more interesting and a better set-up than the "other" MMO's I've played (including the original EQ).

Thanks to SOE, no MMO, nay, no game, will *evar* have the infamy of StarWarsGalaxies... The greatest potential EVER, and was totally destroyed, resulting in a common, every-day garden variety class-based on-line Jedi-vs-Bountyhunter pay-to-play.

The whole incident was very hush hush. Lots of rumors abounded. Some villified SOE, some heard it was Lucas. The fact that it ended up being very much like some of the Lucasarts Games of the time tended to shift my opinion in the latter.

Who knows. Maybe they were tired trying to simplify and balance a system where you could mix parts of almost every class. But its still rather suspicious. Everything is a rumor.
