I wasn't aware there was any hype for this game, I just knew it was coming out sometime this year.

If there is a demo or something I guess I would try it but really don't see myself paying to play it unless it is really good.

There's hype, but people are getting tired of their delays, and their beta was really closed in tight (they just didnt let anyone in). So there wasn't to much "OOOO, AHHHH, COOL" kinda stuff going around

I was sort of hyped about it after missing out on the SWG buzz (man I wish I got in on that back in its day)

...And then I saw this trailer

Know how trailers are a bunch of cg not actually in the game? Know how its basically the BEST the company has to promote the game?

If they call THIS promoting the game and THIS a trailer I can't imagine how dull, shallow, unimaginative, and mind numbingly boring the actual gameplay will be..

Oh and while I'm at it RIFT is "more of the same" and nothing new. Black Prophecy beta was absolutely terrible.

MMOs are nothing but disappoints ever since the last wave (AOC, LOTRO, WAR).. Kind of stopped caring and got into console gaming. Every single MMO is promised (and hailed by fanboys) as THE BEST GAME EVER THIS WILL DESTROY EVERYTHING IN ITS PATH IN 2 MONTHS WE'LL HAVE 11 MILLION SUBS AND WE'LL DESTROY BLIZZARDZ1!!11!!! but it never happens.

I've come to accept that WoW (and blizzard) are going to dominate the MMO market AT LEAST for another 2 years and we'll see nothing super imaginative, original, and interesting soon. Only game I'm looking forward to is GW2 simply because I missed out on GW1.

Oh I got into the beta, the problem is my group got delayed late November and they told me in a e-mail that my group would be able to go at a later time and I still haven't heard from them.

Looks like the illegitimate child of battlefront and KOTOR.

Should have kicked Obsidian in the nuts and let Bioware make a KOTOR trilogy instead. One of my favorite games (KOTOR 1).

Well, at least they look good at financial meetings.
"This game looks decent, but can we really count on day-one sales to make up for the production costs?"
"Nope! But here's the good part! Players pay a monthly fee!"
"TAKE OUR MONEY! Just get it finished!"

In all honesty, every Bioware game I've played as been awesome. Really detailed and polished to a shine.

I have faith that they will make everything awesome.

Besides, as long as it's a polished MMO, questing is going to be 1000x more awesome just because of the cinematic look and feel of the game.

I have this feeling too in the back of my head. Although, like you, I really hope that isn't true. But with this being an MMO, it has to be done differently to accommodate that. Although it seems like they're really almost doing an RPG game and adding an MMO capability to it, which in that sense the MMO part might fail, but as a standalone RPG it might be good.

As for the hype, I think it's because nothing new (and significant) has been released for a while.

Its been hyped so much its doomed to fail, everyone will have extremely high expectations of the game and will be enraged when it doesnt do their homework/walk the dog/etc. This will lead to many posts saying about how it sucks and the game will be dead within a year.

Or am I just being dramatic?

You're not being dramatic.. Judging by recent MMO statistics it's been doomed to fail from the second its concept was made.

Why? Because - It is VERY, VERY hard to make a good MMO. All the polishing, content, and gameplay required is absolutely stupidly huge compared to single player games (Dragon Age)

My prediction: At best its going to go the guild wars route, never #1 but certainly not bad.. At worst its going to go the WAR route.. Completely crashing and burning while the few devs left try to cling it to life and get people playing.

This game must have been coded by that 14-year old kid that wrote that iPhone app or something.

Its ironic because it is developed by like.. a 16 year old.

As others said, WoW controls, wait... scratch that. WoW is the MMO market folks. Guild Wars, WAR and all of them are MMOs and good, but lets face it, WoW has ruled #1 spot since launch.

I see no signs of that slowing down, with another xpack due in late 2012, the new raids in patches etc etc. Nothing is gonna compare to WoW, evar. I'm sorry, but it wont. Like someone else said as well, the second it was planned to make it a MMO, it failed, its dead. From drawing board to now, waste of work. I dont mean that badly to the devs. But if I was a dev, I wouldn't waste my time working on a MMO, after seeing what WoW is still doing.

Now, im sure if it was the last dev job on earth id take it, but a MMO game would be my last choice/studio to join in this day and age.

EDIT: Also, Blizzard is working on MMO "Titan" and looking for very experienced devs right now. SC2 was amazing, its visuals and all. A new IP from Blizz? Will blow everyone away. Along with WoW 2 still 5+ yrs away
EDIT2: I just realized my avatar is Ghost sniper from SC2, no im not a blizz fanboy, but Ghost with Nukes = fav unit evarrrr
