The only concern I have so far is whether or not this game well get the publicity it needs to stand up against Wow and really maintain its goal of competitive agency vs agency combat. If this game is not marketed well, very few gamers (especially good gamers) will be drawn to this game. It seems a shame that a game with this much potential will probably fall in the shadow of crappy MMO's coming out (Aion), who choose to market the hell out of their games. But maybe I am jumping the gun. If this game is as good as I hope it will be, I am sure word of mouth will be the biggest marketing campaign any game could offer. But then again... people said and are still saying Final Fantasy XI is good >.< So whooo knows.
I think it is a great idea for single player games, but I am still unaware how, or even if, this is going to run multi-player games. It would be interesting if this ran games like WoW or even the upcoming MMO's like Star Wars: The Old Republic where you can pretty much pocket your computer and play anywhere at full res/FPS where there is internet connection and a basic computer. This may even revive the mouse and keyboard First Person Shooter... but we can only hope :-(
Lemme know what you guys think about this? I think it is a great idea for single player games, but I am still unaware how, or even if, this is going to run multi-player games.

I think before anyone puts down G4, they first need to realize the amount of original content they are trying to produce. They already must have a tough time putting together an hour long, 5 day a week show like X-play (which compiles all the gaming info anyone would want, Demos, previews, reviews, trailers and even interviews with gaming Devs). I am not a fan of shows like COPS, or that new show where they have "outrageous clips" but it is better than infomercials. G4 is rising from its infancy and doing quiet well IMO. I would like to see some original content with T.V. shows. I enjoy lost as much as the next Fanboy, but it would be interesting to see them branch out and attempt to create drama's and action shows that air once a week. I did like code monkeys, but I dont think many others did. Also, "Movies That Dont Suck" is quiet simply nothing short of Awesome. I think the first step they could do to branching out to create original content would be to compile many of their podcasts that they air on their website. I really enjoy Sesslers Soap box for its realistic viewpoints of someone who is educated, free speaking and who works in the business of game journalism. That combined with unscripted opinions and debates over blogs like fresh ink and the MMO report would create dynamic and interesting t.v. Also those who are quick to criticize G4 should also realize that they DO branch out of even the conventional tv programming and have aired things like "Underground Fight clubs" and are looking to do more of the same.
well the point is to make it like football. About watching strat before your eyes. Just like footbal, one can imply that people once said "why would i want to watch a bunch of guys play catch?". Now look at football. I just think people need to look past its shell and realize its potential. Watching a bunch of people shoot around aimlessly is one thing, but watching a team organize and use different strats really could make it interesting to a wide audience imo.
Also thinking about the new crysis multipayer. Idk about a left 4 dead game, i feel that would not be competative at all. UT3 which was really awesome, but no one was playing. We have Huxley coming up which looks really awesome. That adds a social element since it is an MMOFPS.
agreed. I feel that it needs to be a team game focused on a single best player. I would say TF2, but that does not have a ffa. I am thinking it has to be some fasted pace FPS, or maybe even warhammer. But idk about that one.
Even competitve console gaming is not what you say. I have seen crazy 180 no scopes in halo 2. That almost never happens...ever. I have watched the MLG on spike and it was pretty good, the only problem was it was on at 10 am in the morning. WAYYYY to early for anyone who is a gamer. I was hoping to see something along the lines as a nation wide search for the best gamer/gaming team.
Go to a bunch of places, hold small lan tournys and then the top 5 or so winners from each moves on to the next round. Then i was thinking that near the finals everyone gets taken out of their teams ( like 20 or so people for a 5v5 game or a 4v4 game) and start having FFA's. The winners would have immunity and be the "team capt" and either pick the best or worst players on their teams in efforts of getting them kicked out of the competition. I think that would be compelling along the lines of survivor, American idol, and MLG. Add all three and you have what i believe will catalyst Gaming into a major sport.
