I saw this tweet last night saying Giant Bomb could/would be getting quests back? Is that a thing?

Really? Is this really really gonna be a thing? I hope so! I loved things!

I can't find the linked video under the Giant Bomb Twitch archive so I assume it was streamed elsewhere. Did anyone here tune in?

Urgh, quests were like trying to find research for a paper, except it was pointless.

To be honest, I'd prefer if they fixed or polished up the site first before adding goofy stuff like that again. Having trouble editing the wiki due to weird bugs on a regular basis or having some of the site UI still missing obvious improvements should be dealt with first.

I'm guessing they have people dedicated to that, but while they fight it, I don't think they have to ignore adding features. Not to mention, I imagine the return of Quests may have something to do with advertising and the potential there...

I'd rather have achievement tracking back rather than quests to be honest. Hopefully with the new consoles they'll make the achievements/trophy data easy to get at.

#14 Posted by mosespippy (4127 posts) -

It sure would be nice to have quests back. Which reminds me, I made a 500000 exp bet on I'm Calling It when GTA V got announced. Should be up soon and if that game is a 5 then I'll be scoring big!

You guys that have screencaps of your Quest completion are a bunch of fuckin' weirdos. THERE I SAID IT.

Maybe they were just recording it for posterity right before the site changed? I suppose that could maybe make some sense.

Since I have you scumbags actually here in one of my threads, for a change, I'm just gonna post this link here. Because, well, you duders don't seem to like posting on things that actually matter.

There, I've even given you a preview of the thread as well, how nice.

We have jpgs (or pngs). Precious precious jpgs (or pngs). Aged in our digital lockers for consumption at just the right time.

FUCK YES. I loved the Quest System, particularly the way new quests would add to the hype of a new release or event. I've missed that sort of thing for so long.

Hopefully when the new systems hit both MS and Sony will make it easy to pull achievement/trophy data and the guys'll be able to bring that feature back too eventually.

Not bothered about quests but i do miss the quiz thingy.

@truthtellah: If quests were rewarded with Jessica gifs, then they would at least be worth something. ;)

I'm sure that means the return of turbotoaster (Kat), right? @

Right?

(I haven't been around much lately, and noticed the site no longer even acknowledges the username)

#24 Posted by jimmyfenix (3853 posts) -

Does anyone know if they plan to bring back Achievement/trophy tracking?

I imagine they may still be open to improving the new feature. ;)

Agreed, sort of. I just want the ability to add multiple captions in one session. It's a pain in the ass as it is.

Yep, the wiki is still preeeeeeetty broken. The dropdown list for linking other pages was appearing on the left hand side of the screen, then just disappearing entirely before. I suppose it's working better than before though...

Also, some pages just cannot be edited and will just throw an error if you try to submit anything.

Yeah, I took a screenshot of it right after I completed it; was so stoked about that quest set and being the 4th person to finish it. Stayed up all night waiting for it to launch and then joined the zeitgeist of figuring out what each quest was with the ~50 or so dudes who were rushing to finish that set. Ended up finishing it (including the First! quest and even Remarkin' Spartan (be the 300th comment on a forum thread) before it was removed) in a couple of hours. The only people that beat me were Bodega, (I think) Hamz, and one other dude, and clearly Bodega and Hamz used their moderator powers for evil to cheat and finish first.

Wow that's an unexpected surprise!

Hopefully Achievements will come back too?

Who said that that wasn't happening also, or that re-introducing Quests are high on the developer's work log.? It was confirmed that they plan on bringing some stuff back, but also confirmed that fixing the video player and getting the GameSpot revision complete were their top priorities and that they have other stuff planned for Giant Bomb and Comic Vine.

Dude, I hope we get some new cRPG quest sets, I gotta get my fix.

#41 Posted by Mento (2512 posts) -

While I'm in the "make everything work first" camp, the return of Quests is something people can get way more hyped about. Plus, it's good for advertising and just traffic in general. Makes a whole lot of sense, especially given what Steam's doing at the moment.

Talking of which, if they could somehow compound that with Giant Bomb Trading Cards we'd be really talking. We do still have all those baseball cards that Dave Snider made. Browse Giant Bomb for an hour and you might unlock a limited-edition foil Luchadeer rookie card!

It does. It's the thought that counts.

The trading cards were amazing, and now I'm bummed that those aren't coming back.

If I remember right from the chat they said it was something they wanted to do and to try and implement a Salty Bet's style betting system, but there were more important things they are working on right now so it would still be a ways off (such as better video player and Gamespot's update).

I remember being obsessed with a new set of quests whenever they dropped. And sometimes dedicating way too much time to finishing them. That effin pink submarine still haunts my memories. It all seems so weird looking back on it.
