When The Secret World, I really felt like he wasn't doing it justice. He hit most of the points, but he didn't understand the reasons behind why they did what they did. I'm really thinking they need a guy who likes MMORPG's or is at least open to the idea of them and that gets into the development side of the genre. Some one that gets into the why and how of why developers do what they do but for MMORPG's and understands the features of the games in the genre.was talking about
That way, when they talk about TSW they can explain why you can only have so many quests (to stop people from running around and grabbing all the quests in the area and just running through the content). Why you can corpse run as a ghost with the option to resurrect on the spot (so you can run to your body without being aggro'ed I think or give up and res on the spot). Whether he would like the feature or not, I believe he should at least have an understanding of why it's there and the potential pros and cons of it to better inform potential buyers.
That way at least people can go, "Oh yeah, that makes sense. I understand it a little better now.". He also didn't really go into detail about the decks and how they work. If you can get into the idea of deck building, you might like the game more than just, "the combat is, you hit 1 a bunch". Sure that's just about how all games work and you're not really being fair to the game by breaking it down like that. It's fine that he didn't like it, but I wish at least he had a better understanding of it.
Having said all that, I like the game for now. I have my own things I don't like about the game, like it not being Star Wars Galaxies but better. I also think he's on the money about them having their own fake internet, or at least maybe making their own fake search engine that helps direct you in the right way. My last biggest gripe was that when he was talking about the Morse Code thing, it just sounds like he didn't like the fact that he had to actually DO the puzzle and instead wanted to hit the I win button. Although I think they are poorly put together puzzles with huge leaps in logic to complete them, I feel like that's not really fair to the developers and the potential buyers. But at least he hit most of the points to where the smarter gamers can at least pick up the differences in knowing what they like and what Jeff likes; giving them an informed decision.
Thanks for reading my rant.
