    Thanks for the replies, a few mentioned I already knew but I'll look back into them regardless. I've looked at Tera a few times before, maybe I just need to try it out.

    Neverwinter looks like the same old if I'm honest, couldn't even get through a video with developer commentary as it bored me, since then haven't looked back at it. I have actually played Farcry and it was alright, same for Dragon Age but story-wise it became so boring about half-way through that I never completed the game. Two was horrible and I've only played it for a very short time, bad purchase for me. ^^

    Once again, appreciated. I'll take a look at them.

    Looking for my next big MMORPG. I love everything about WOW just I am simply bored of the same old content/mechanics. Looks a little different but its just the same.
    Therefore I am looking to journey into another world, that is similar to WoW.

    Mostly I care about the Dungeon/Party/Class system, as I enjoy PVE alot. I do not like GW2's style of things, it has to be like WOW where you have a tank, healer and DPS.

    Must be popular, as I want people to play with.

    Any games on the market now worth investing time into or any that I should set my eyes upon that are releasing soon?

    Oh, WoW's combat system/targetting system does not need to be in this other game though, thats one feature I am happy to wave goodbye too. Action MMORPG is cool, but I dont mind

    Well, is Wildstar really releasing soon? It seems at least a year away.

    They've stated multiple times it will launch this year. I assume the holidays, but still that's less than 7 months away.

    AAA game has nothing to do with quality and everything to do with the budget being spent on it. But to answer your questions, yes it is a AAA game. Many of the developers were leads on the original WoW. The humor isn't very different from humor we had in WoW, but it's much more clever and in your face. Think of it more like advertisement than the game really. Remember WoW had commercials with Chuck Norris and Mr. T (the night elf mohawk) so...it's like that.

    If you read up on it on their site and watch more videos, you'll see they are very, very serious about the game. Additionally they plan on returning raiding to the spotlight. Not only will it be hard, but raids will change to be dynamic. Instead of having the same rooms every time you walk in, the configuration might change presenting new hazards, requiring new strategies adopted as you encounter it.

    Trying not to go hype mode, but they are designing many facets of the game for each type of player. They have solo end game, group end game, crazy new pvp ideas with warplots, plyer housing, etc.

    Definitely liking the sound of this, there seems to be 3 main MMO's coming out soon (not including blizzards new one), Neverwinter - Skyrim MMO - Wildstar.
    I've played Neverwinter beta, its ok. I think I would have to play all 3 to compare but what about you. Which are you most looking forward too and why? :-)

    On another note, I was looking to play a game nowwwww.. Looks like there is nothing then atm then huh

    Plenty of games out now. If you want a WoW type of game, try Rift.

    Yes, for a game to play right now give Rift a shot. It will be F2P next month, but has a free trial to 20 right now, so you can try it without paying a dime. I highly recommend it, but it's not going to give you the same feeling WoW has like Wildstar will be able to do in the future. It's very dark and mature (which is fine) but since you were specifically looking for something very similar to WoW, I didn't recommend it earlier.

    So in the next month you can try it for sure.

    What about TERA or SWTOR, or any other free one right now?

    Tera is vastly different in combat and design. While they do have a trinity, there's not a lot of PvE content. SWTOR would be fine to recommend as it has a similar PvE structure to WoW and is F2P as well. That may be a good go to for you. However, you will not be able to raid end game very well unless you pay for their recent DLC which extended the level cap and added a new raid.

    It does have a same server LFD tool for what they call Flashpoints (dungeons), but I don't know how easy it is to find one at levels below the DLC's new cap.

    I will definitely be waiting for Wildstar as my hopefully next main game then. Until then I might give SWTOR a shot for abit of fun for abit

    Anyone familiar with the old browser game mechwars.net?

    Need some help in determining the genre type of an old game I used to play that no longer exists. And hopefully, if there are any similar games out there today.

    It was a browser based game that operated on the website mechwars.net and was used with IRC as the main communication hub. Essentially you built up your base/tech, built up your 'mech army' and would then coordinate attack/defense against other players/clans/guilds.

    I know this game itself doesn't exist, but I find there is so much trash out there for "browser web games" that it's hard to sort through it all. Just hoping to find some information on this genre, and what's on the market today, if anything.

    Thank you!

    Genesis is an interactive comic-styled cutscene piece of DLC for Mass Effect 2 that played at the beginning of the game to serve as an introduction for those who haven't played ME1. It allows you to make the bigger, game-defining choices that you would've made by playing 1 that are seriously integral to ME2.
    I would definitely recommend Genesis for someone new to ME2 who doesn't want to play ME1 (though I'd recommend playing ME1 too.) Because ME3 is so much better with Wrex alive.

    Hmm, the only browser game that I really sunk a ton of time into was Ogame (www.ogame.org). However, this is more of a "combat spreadsheet" sort of game and I'm not sure if that is similar to the game you're thinking of. You build up a space fleet, your homeworld, your colonies, etc etc but you never actually see any of it really. Mostly just numbers. You attack/defend yourself from other players as well.

    L.A Norie
    Skyrim
    soul calibur V

    Games I already plan to buy (not just for xbox)
    Mass effect 3 (unsure if i need to play the first 3 to get it)

    As a fan of the Roller Coaster Tycoon games, I am looking for a City "tycoon" game. I have never played SimCity or Cities XL or anything like that so I don't know if a game like this even exists. But is there a game that has you build a city, and hire police/fire etc. and try to maintain running your city and keep it up to high standards while fires are breaking out or thieves breaking into places and stealing stuff?

    I'm sure my description of this game is pretty bad. But if there is such a game, can anyone tell me the name of it so I can check it out?

    Thanks

    I think SimCity is about as close to that as possible. Granted, I play it on and off (not too much of a fan of the new installment) its still quite fun if you're into those types of games.

    The game starts like this:

    You have base 'simoleons' (money). You use that to build a road connecting a highway to your new untouched area. You start off building some streets and putting down 'zones' where people can build. You can choose to zone for Residential, etc. Essentially you start off with people building shacks and working bad jobs. As the city progresses, value (or density) goes up and people start making more money. Houses start becoming larger houses, industry starts booming and more people start moving in.

    You do have to deal with fires, criminals, sick people, random events that destroy portions of your city, and various other complaints people may have. Its fun to pass the time but I don't think it really has much longevity to it.
