For discussion about any news relating to the world of gaming.  Only 3 Hours in so not much so far but a couple of choice bits :

First off we have a new SWTOR Trailer of Game-play footage :

I really like the whole art direction of GW2 and that Thief class looks interesting and fun.. It's a definate purchase for me anyway.

SW:ToR, the more I see and hear the less and less it inspires me Sad

Firefall looks brilliant, been following that for quite some time - sort of a more involving 'Borderlands'

Secret World anyone ? Funcom, hmm maybe if they bothered to fix AoC I'd be more enthusiastic... still you never know

The concept of Secret World looks interesting and fun, but yeah, remember AoC.

I'm looking for new on the Deus Ex presentation from yesterday.

Edit: ah, there will be a demo, nice.

'Day of Sex' was my all time favourite game, must have played through all 4-5 endings, such a shame the follow up was pretty dire... I'm deliberately not looking forward to Human Evolution in the hope it's not a diluted console effort with a dodgy port to PC !!!! although the trailers do look rather tasty! !

The concept is good, but as you say... More immediately, I was shocked by how poor the graphics were in the latest demos; they looked like something you would have seen in cutting-edge games maybe twelve years ago. And I hope they aren't going massively to town with the open-raid concept - it took about four days to get really, really stale in Rift.

Personally, I'm more interested in seeing how Skyrim pans out.

It looks really good Charvel, and yeah it relieves me to hear that they realise part two was tripe.

There are some gameplay video's out too (check YouTube) and imho those tell me more about the game, and those look good too.

And, last edit, about the PC version: http://palgn.com.au/pc-gaming/18406/deus...et-a-demo/

Runthrough of one of the mid-game instances.  Looks exactly like I would expect a SW MMO to look, thankfully!

Wow, looks very very nice. It looks like I'll be taking the consular class.

Not sure about groups being four-man though.

I agree it looks awesome. SWG was a huge letdown, but the next try looks a lot more promising.
