Is anyone else following this like crazy? I might be having too high of hopes for this game. But I'm sick of wow and this game seems to be unlike wow in all the right ways.

Thoughts?

Eh, nothing official announced aside from "2012" as far as I know. I think the rest is hype. But hopefully it does come out this summer.

They probably would have announced it already if they were going to have a Summer release date. Winter 2012, seems more likely what they are aiming for.

Well anything is possible. But most blockbuster games don't come out during the Summer lull of video games.. September is a possibility though

I'll call NCsoft and ArenaNet to see what I can do... Perhaps they'll agree to release it next week :P

While I basically don't care about anything but Diablo 3 right now, I did see a preview somewhere that showed the alternative to wow-style questing and grinding.

You mind if I ask what your opinions are on the censorship issue with video games in Australia?

In the case of Diablo, some gamers were concerned but it ultimately got a suitable rating...

I don't know if it happens a lot, but it seems to be an issue that comes up occasionally because there is no classification beyond 15+, (I believe the rating is something like that) so will you buy games from an on-line retailer to avoid a censored game? Or is it something that hasn't really been an issue for you thus far?

It's fvcking bullsh!t. As far as I'm concerned this issue should have been resolved years ago with an 18+ rating for games... How hard is it? I mean, the censors play the game... Is this game suitable for children? No. Young teens? No. Older teens? No. Is it so perverse is should be banned? No. Bingo-bango, slap an R-rating on it. I'm 25 years old for fvck sake. I want to kill zombies with chainsaws and run down hookers in stolen cars, not play Bejeweled 2.

Yeah, thank fvck for that.

It HAS been an issue. I bought L4D2 on Steam not knowing I was going to get the censored version. It was... just bad. I found a way to exploit it by using L4D1 servers to play the game uncensored but still... There was no warning or anything. In future, I'll be a lot more careful. Not that I should need to be...

Having said that, I believe we're making progress with the R-rating for games now... http://www.r18games.com.au...

Thanks for your response. I know this issue would drive me crazy. While some games in the US get discontinued due to public opinion, (Thrill Kill comes to mind) it's never an issue of the government outright banning them or censoring them.

The ESRB (US video game ratings board) is a self imposed way to rate the games by the industry based on appropriateness, and since AO (adult only games) are seen as unmarketable on consoles, they simply don't exist. But M (17+) rated games are quite popular and make up a larger and larger percentage of the newer games on consoles and AO games are readily available to those who want to play them on PC.

I don't think I (and most US citizens) would be willing to put up with the type of censorship you have described, and the political situation in the US makes it unlikely. Although Joe Lieberman and Hillary Clinton made this a big issue in the late 90's, with nothing significant coming from it.

So I'm wondering if you have some particular insight into how this situation manifested politically in Australia, and do you see the political climate regarding this issue changing anytime soon?

I have no idea how it came to be this way. The first time I realised it was even an issue was when L4D2 was banned.

Yes! It is FAR less tedious from the questing point of view and there is no worming your way around the game- you can't just grind and still become powerful.

It's due to be released in the last days of June. That's what the general consensus is.
