  1. Another ultra-hyped game resulting in disappointment. No surprises here.

      Who the hell hyped this shit? As far as I remember, everyone expected it to be garbage from the very first trailer.

        You mean you weren’t excited for a brand new MMORPG set in a fantasy setting?

          I know what you mean, I thought it obviously wouldn’t turn out like the last five “brand new” mmos and it would be a sure WoW killer!

          No. Hell fucking no. Every goddamn mmo today*almost everyone* is about Fantasy, dragons and faggot pixie dust. There need to be more space related mmos, more survival mmos, We already have 51 flavors of fantasy. Its all the same story with different graphics. Need a Change. And SWTOR, doesnt exactly have much in terms of space*granted they added space combat* 98.9% of it is on a planet. And until recently, there were no survival mmos. Time to start making more non fantasy mmos.

          And I am a HUGE fan of fantasy novels, but Jesus H Christ, when 9 out of every 10 mmo are the exact same thing, just a different title, and slight variations, it is old, stale and boring, We have already played ESO, Tell me what this game offers, that GW2 or LOTR or WOW doesnt, MMO? So are the rest. Pay to play? Wow Covers that. Quests? Been done. Skills? done. WHAT does ESO add that is unique? Hell if I know…..

        You know who hyped this shit. The same people who gets their paychecks by hyping this shit.

      So by wtaching a trailer you can be sure the actual game will be shit?
      I suggest you wait until it has been released, give it a try and THEN make up your mind about it.

        Or by having been part of the beta, and seeing that the entire foundation and core of the experience is flawed, and no tweaks to the sub par gameplay and graphics could save it.

        So you suggest paying $60 for the game and another $15 for a month to give it a try. No thanks.

  2. Anthony says:

    I don’t see a problem. Can you think of an MMO that spent that much money and failed?

  3. Feary says:

    ” I’m not entirely sure what people would expect from a 200 million dollar game in the first place…”,three letter answer this: GTA.

  4. Bob says:

    Maybe there was a budget of $20 million, but there was a typo and they added an extra 0 at the end.

  5. The last part of this article says a rep from Bethesda claims they’ve never heard of Elder Scrolls Online. What is this, an Onion article? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjYC2KBilRE

    Is the game really THAT bad? I mean, I don’t like the fact that you can’t obtain that classical open world exploration without getting killed instantly and that common enemies have one gold coin and bosses have just two coins. But I still like the other stuff. Like the customizations on your characters appearance! Example; You can make your argonian skinny or fat as hell! Lol.

    Firor is a complete and utter idiot, take my advice instead and ignore him, holy shit… Couple of examples –

    “So let’s pretend that we actually did spend 200 million dollars on the game, people would be banging on our doors to play The Elder Scrolls Online which is not the case,”

    Great logic! More money thrown at = more mindless people loving our disaster! Idiot…

    “In fact, everyone breaking the agreement to say that this game is bad is clearly a person you should just ignore.”

    That’s right, ignorance is bliss
