I've noticed we have quite a few geeks and gamers on her, so who else is anxiously awaiting this game? If you don't know it is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) based in the Warcraft universe.

MMORPG's are boring. I beta tested FFXI for PC and it was just a lot of repetition...

I don't like MMORPGs for the same reasons I don't play Diablo any more: You waste hours upon hours of time to increment numbers. Other games have a little more skill involved.

I bet you guys haven't checked out World Of Warcraft yet. It's supposedly a MMORPG done right. I played Diablo2 religiously for awhile I don't expect to resist this much better.

Exactamondo, I remember my UO days.
Now it's time for everyone to go old school (http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~cs8k-cyu/windows/p47_e.html)

MMORPG's are bad for me.

If I pay monthly to play a game I always feel like I have to play it constantly to get my money's worth, and that's usually disastorous on my real life. I got better grades when I was going to school with a heroin addiction than when I was doing so with an EQ addiction.

another thing is about mmorgps is that you can't player kill/fight in most of them unless you agree to, it takes the realism out.

I have, and the fact Diablo 2 and its expansion stole 18 months and nearly $200 from me (including $2 of REAL MONEY to buy an item off someone) is why I will never play a game like it again.

How did D2 cost you that much money?

It's free to play online.

I think this will be neat, but I don't pay to play games. Closest I may come is if I get Xbox live, and that's because I can play ALL online xbox games, not just one.

D2 on day of release, $90 after tax.
D2X two days before release thanks to the leaked European shipment, $80 after tax.

I gave both games away, then almost bought them again years later when 1.10 came out. I felt like a junky.

just my personal opinion, but in world of warcraft you will find all those morons from battle.net, they are the most stupid online community ever (IMO). Eventhough I dont think that the number of morons playing the game can actually spoil the fun in WoW, I am worried with the number of stupid/gay topics in WoW forum, like guys whinning about how male people should not be able create female avatars because they want to "cyber" chicks and not some "horny 13 year old boy".

well, personally, I am not into MMORPGs, but warcraft is fun, so maybe I will try it

Please, please, please tell me that you're kidding and that people don't really cyber in Diablo.

I don't know for sure. But I think it's a safe assumption, that people do.

I dont know in diablo, but I have heard that in any MMORPG out there, as long as you have a female avatar, you will always have the best items. But I dont know, I heard that on gamefaqs and never played a MMORPG, the monthly fee is too expensive since it is in american dollars

Back when I played Diablo I followed one rule: "There are no girls on the internet."

Also, since the classes were tied to genders, you knew that most of the soceresses and amazons were korean teenage guys.

MMORPGS are the devil!

also to describe the type of communities mmorgps create. I once knew a guy who started a guild in a game called shadowbane. He had two accounts, his regular and his "second" account. The second account was fill with female characters that he married. So basically he married himself atlest 8 times, sick. All for their "role play" community.

One of the big reasons I stopped playing D2 was that they patched the ability to crash all the koreans in your game.

WoW is probably the only MMORPH that i would be willing to pay for to play. Penny Arcade did a great feature on it once, something like a tour to a town. It really looks amazing. Since then i've been itching to play it....if only it didn't cost like 15 bucks a month. If i'm going to start playing MMORPHWTFBBQ's this is the one i'll play.

Yeah, WoW looks great... I personally like Final Fantasy XI.. but, I haven't been able to play lately.. The credit card I was registered to expired... and since I'm currently out of a job I haven't been able to re-register... :-/ Anyways.. WoW looks awesome, I've heard pretty good tihngs about it.

They dropped the latest patch some freaky stuff. I think the resting crap is just to get Testers to play more characters at once.

Whew...I just spent all day building up my character's musical skill! I am now a Grandmaster Funksmith of Harmonious Syncopation. It would be so cool to really play a musical instrument!
