I for one loved the movie. I am a huge fan of the books and I know that the movies can never be the books, they are simply adaptions and Part 2 was a damn good one. It had some changes yes but I enjoyed it for what it was. And even if you aren't a fan of the Potter story there is no denying that the special effects, makeup, and musical score(Desplat) are amazing and Oscar Worthy finally. Plus, Alan Rickman gave a fantastic performance. There is a reason the critics are giving it this type of praise, some are just to blind to see it.

So I have been a huge Batman and Spider-Man fan for awhile. I've followed both series pretty well, seen all the movies, watched both animated series, played all the games etc. but one thing I have never gotten to do is to read the comics and really get to know more about the storylines. I don't have a comic book store near me, it went out of business about 1-2 years ago. Idk where they are even sold. So is there a place to buy them online? And will it cost me a lot of money or are they relatively cheap?

Does anyone else other than me think this game might be actually decent? I know part 1 was crap but maybe this will be like a 6/10.

Yeah I agree with everything. i thought the Wii would be innovative too but I never used it after the first 3 months I had it. I mean I gave it to my sister who doesnt live at home thats how little I played it. This looks like it could be really cool but I'm pretty sure E3 has given us empty promises before. Plus I really hate the name. Just reading your guys's sentences  that say "I cant wait to see how the Wii U handles (insert game here)" it just makes me laugh. I cant take it seriously.

So this is just a short blog that I thought I'd write. After watching the Nintendo conference I am pretty impressed with the new console. It has the potential to be pretty innovative IF the console can do everything we actually saw in the video at the conference such as throwing ninja stars onto the screen from the controller, or pushing a video(the parrot video) from the controller onto the screen. BUT, does anyone else think Nintendo is continuing its streak of the stupidest sounding console names ever? I mean Wii:U? How does this not sound gay, "Hey guys how about we all come back to my house and play on my Wii U!!!" I mean seriously, the name needs to be changed. Its laughable.

I get what your saying about armor drops, and this was only an idea I had. Its gunna have flaws but I feel these are minor things that actual game developers could find a way around if they took time and care to actually make a good game. Yes, it may fail and sure it might not lend itself to the "perfect" MMO recipe but I mean whats perfect now days anyways?

Ok maybe I took this the wrong way. I probably shouldn't have said WoW killer, I guess I phrased what I meant a little wrong. I feel like a Harry Potter MMO could be SUCCESSFUL. There that is better worded. I agree with

I think alot of people are misunderstanding the fact that the 12 million subscribers wow has are not necessarily all MMO players, they are WoW players, kinda like me. I could never go to another MMO no matter how earthshattering it is, I am done I did my time with World of Warcraft. 
He is right. Not all MMO players are WoW players. The HP MMO could attract other players.

 Harry Potter MMO will not work.  First of all , if you go with the Hogwarts formula , everyone will start as annoying little kids.   Tanking : How is this going to work ?  I cant imagine a 12 year old Harry Potter clone with a stick soak up damage from something bigger than him.  Damage: Since everyone is a Harry Potter clone with a stick , I guess everyone is a Mage and does ranged damage. what about melee ?  Quests and killng: from what I seen in the movies , in Hogwarts they don't teach 12 year old kids how to brutally murder monsters and collect their loot for quests. Unless Dambeldor hands over knives.   PVP:  the whole dueling idea sounds boring as hell , gamers like to brutally murder and then Tbag each other .  Raids: I feel sorry for the 12 year old Harry Potter clone who has to tank Basilisk , gonna be bloody .. unless they make it T for Teen game. Thats why I think Harry Potter MMo will fail.
As for this you have the wrong idea completely. The Harry Potter series has become much darker and more adult oriented as it went on. Its not all flowers and unicorns. There is torturing, murdering, war, love, I mean everything that more mature series has. Its not gunna be all casting a spell that makes things levitate. In the movie you see the power of just teenagers and adult wizards. There are many spells that are extremely powerful. Look at Voldemort and Dumbledore's duel at the end of the 5th movie. That was badass. It doesnt have to be a light-hearted kids game. And yes you all will be mage's but you can still tank. There are spells that slow enemies down(Impdementa), provide shielding(Protego), and you can sure as hell make up more spells that will help you soak damage. I mean ITS MAGIC! If you are telling me it isnt plausible for there to be spells that will protect you and soak damage then you are crazy.

I didn't read that, but a Harry Potter MMO is an absurd concept in itself, let alone one being well-crafted and marketed enough to come even CLOSE to touching WoW's market share. Everyone thinks they've got the next WoW killer but I assure you someone smarter and more talented than you has come up with the idea and thought it wouldn't cut it.
If you didn't read it then how do you know it couldn't work. OK so maybe it won't kill WoW, maybe I should have made the title "This Could be a Really Succssful MMO." But I mean just think of the concept it could be done if given time. I think right now the reaosn why there hasnt been a decent HP game is because we are still in movie phase. They are just dishing out movie based games to please hardcore fans but neglecting the quality of the game. It has been PROVEN a good HP game can be made if it is made with care. Look at LEGO Harry Potter that game was awesome. If someone took time to really craft these ideas out once the movies are done with, we could have one hell of a game.

So I've been thinking over the past few days. A lot of people I know still play WoW non-stop. They admit even that since Cataclysm came out, WoW isn't as enjoyable as it used to be back when it first came out, yet they still play it. I asked them why and they told me "Because there is nothing new to rival it. Its better than anything else still." That got me thinking, what type of MMO or what universe if done right could kill this game OR at least give it competition. And I thought of something. Now a lot of peop,e might stop reading right here and never continue on but just give me a chance to explain myself as to why I think it could do it. Give me a chance to throw out some ideas before you stop reading. Here it is: Harry Potter. Now please just take 5-10 minutes of your time to read my thoughts. I've been compiling ideas for quite some time. I know this is a wall of text but PLEASE just give it a chance and read it.
 

The Basics

Harry Potter is a franchise that makes an insane amount of money. It has sold millions of books and it has made billions of dollars in movie sales worldwide and its not yet over. This has enough popularity to really pull people in if a game is done right now here are my ideas for the game. You start off with the basic character creation screen. Choose your gender and maybe use some sliders to change skin color, hair type,etc. to give some differences in the people you see. You don't choose attributes yet. The game then throws you right into DIagon Alley where there are numerous shops to go to. From the start only the most basic items to get you through you're first year are unlocked. You will buy your basic spell books, the ingredients needed for Potions class, you can even buy a pet which will have uses later in the game. After that, you will go to get your wand and based off a specific challenge you do it will provide you with a unique wand of you're own. Then it is off to Hogwarts where you will be sorted. Here is where you choose your attributes. If you want to be a tank/DPS type character you will choose Gryffindor, if you want to be a healer/DPS then you can choose Hufflepuff, if you want to be a DPS character only and be able to unlock specific places in the castle you can choose Ravenclaw(because you are in this housr you are supposed to be very smart, this is why you can help unlock certain areas for others), if you want to be very powerful and unlock specific combat oriented spells you will choose Slytherin but you will not have much defense.
 

Classes

Here is where you will learn all your spells. As you take classes you will level up  and earn the ability to unlock certain spells. Each class will consist of certain tasks you have to complete based on what class you're in. Also, based on the types of classes you decide to take during you're years there, it will help to determine what job you can have once you leave Hogwarts. Also, I took the idea of Students in Peril and extended it to be side quests that will help unlock items and give exp. You will find students across Hogwarts that need your help and if you help them retrieve a certain item or help them finish a task then it unlocks new items/exp for you.
 

Raids/Instances

I did not forget about one of the biggest parts of WoW. The whole thing about Hogwarts is it is a magical place that is meant to be explored. As you progress through the years you unlock tougher raids and instances. Just think the Forbidden Forest is a huge area that leads to man different areas. You can go in there and face the giant spider Aragog, you can go to the home of the Centaurs later in the game once they turn against you like in the books, you can face many different beasts in there. Also, you can face the evil Basilisk in the Chamber of Secrets. Endless possibilities. 
 

Exploration

Hogwarts is meant to be explored. There are supposed to be numerous secret passageways and dungeons that people never found. Take time away from classes/quests and look for certain areas that might lead to secret dungeons that have new enemies to fight and new items to help you out. Just take in the atmosphere as you see ghosts float around Hogwarts, talk to them to learn history of the wizarding world and maybe you'll learn some information from specific ghosts that can help you to uncover long lost artifacts later in the gamer that boost stats(ex: Ravenclaw's Diadem, Elder Wand, Invisibilty Cloak). See Peeves causing trouble, dropping dungbombs on fellow students.
 

PvP

Once you enter you're second year you can enter the Dueling Club. Here you can challenge friends or other players close to your level. You can each put up one or two items "at stake" and the winner will taker those items. That way you dont have to lose anything valuable during PvP if you dont want, you dont have to put anything at stake.
 

After Hogwarts

Based on the classes you take at Hogwarts, you will be given a job. After Hogwarts you will go on to be in The Ministry of Magic. You will be assigned to a certain department maybe even become an Auror and this is where you will unlock higher level isntances and raids such as battling Death Eaters. You will enter Hogwarts a year ahead of Harry story wise this way once you leave Hogwarts after you're seventh year you will be able to go into the highest instance which is "The Battle of Hogwarts" but as a Ministry person.
 

Quidditch/Hogsmeade

You and 6 other friends can form you're own Quidditch team where you can challenge other "House teams" consisting of other players. At the end of a 1-2 month period the Top 32 teams will be asked to compete in a Quiditch World Cup event where the team that wins gains an exp boost and special items. Also, during the year at Hogwarts since you can't go to Diagon Alley you can access Hogsmeade for all items that you need to purchase.

"The past 3 days I've watched four Oscar nominated movies with various people, watched Toy Story 3 and 127 hours two days ago, loved them both, and yesterday I watched The King's Speech and The Fighter. Still want to see The Social Network and Black Swan, watched Winter's Bone awhile ago, all great movies  But on topic, 127 Hours was a great movie, I've watched some real violent movies but I had to look away a couple of times when he was cutting his arm off, I knew it was coming but it was so gruesome and unpleasent, just like I was expecting. James Franco was pretty great in it aswell "

The Social Network and Black Swan are both very very good and are must sees. Both of them have knockout performances by Jesse Eisenberg and Natalie Portman(god I love Natalie Portman, she is beautiful and talented). So you must see those two right away. I have yet to see The Fighter and King's Speech and I will see them as soon as possible but so far 127 Hours is my favorite, followed by Social Network, then Black Swan, then Inception.
