is still addicted to Guild Wars
... as Stef
said.. MMO anonymous may need a call!
(and maybe from me soon, I bought the GW trilogy on the recent Steam sale
mentioned that Infinity Ward
may be making a Call of Duty MMO.. There's a discussion thread going in the public shooter forum about this topic - LINK
- and it looks like "Sledgehammer Games
(a videogame development studio owned by Activision
) will extend the Call of Duty franchise into the action-adventure genre."
mentions a MMOFPS called World War II Online: Battleground Europe
in that CoD MMO thread which also looks interesting.
SOURCE Play Guide - Battleground Europe Wiki
Battleground Europe is fought on an accurate half-scale map of 1940's Western Europe.
gets a mention and how well it worked regarding the joining of MMO & FPS..
It looks like PlanetSide 2
is on the way, discussion thread - HERE
I haven't played a MMOFPS yet. I don't know if it'll suit my online gaming needs. I like idea of being able to sometimes just jump into a FPS for 20-30 minutes and play a round and leave satisfied. From what I heard this can't be done with anything MMO. A MMOFPS is still on my to-do list though
Blizzard doing an MMO? topic.
It looks like we find out what this is during BlizzCon 2010

Cost of Gaming topic.
mentioned the huge sales Steam
offered during the xmas period. I ended up getting BioShock
for $10 and Mirror's Edge
for $5. Both of these games have been on my to-play list for a while so I snapped them up at a good price. Like you both I don't have to get most games on release at full price. There are of course others that I simply must have on release day!
Cost of Gaming.... mmmmm... even if consoles were significantly cheaper than PCs for gaming I still wouldn't leave the PC world. I'm an enthusiast gamer so in my opinion that requires a PC. I'm sure many console gamers would disagree with that though. I suppose the term "best" is relative.
Lucky for the PC gamer the hardware is advanced to a point where required upgrades are less frequent. I used to be an avid overclocker but now-a-days it's more of a hobby for most overclockers than a requirement ie. years ago to play a game on max settings or even just high settings you needed to overclock. The best default systems in the world couldn't run games at high-max. Today that isn't the case.
Predictions for 2010 topic.
I'm hoping that the next Medal of Honor
will be good. I'm predicting the singleplayer will be great but I'm a bit concerned the multiplayer with be a stat-noob fest. Here's a link to a discussion thread in the public shooter forum - LINK
Thanks again for another great podcast!
