The Elder Scrolls Online
Looks good, but...
Everything I read shows this to be a good game. Except I'm not going to pay a $15 a month fee to keep playing it.
Extra Monthly subscription fee for Elder Online ??
First off I loved the previous Elder Scrolls installments, they were awesome and I thoroughly enjoyed them. I see that the new installment will be charging a monthly fee on the console versions???? If I purchase this game for $60 will I be able to play the actual game quests without having to pay this subscription fee, I really don’t have any want/need to interact with other players online I only care about the actual game itself and in-game content… If I am required to pay an extra monthly fee just to play the in-game content that will keep me from buying the game altogether, which would be unfortunate because it has been a great franchise so far. Any help you could offer in answering these questions will be appreciated.
Was a day one buy, but not anymore.
I was planning on getting this the day it came out, and I was extremely excited for it. But after finding out that there will be a $15/month fee just to play, I decided I'm not gonna buy it anymore. If I pay $60 for a game, I don't want to have to pay more money just to use it.
Ok, we love the graphics. We love the gameplay and sound. The acting is epic and storylines and dialogue are thorough. Even the combat and real-life feel is great. What killed the series: bethesda. when they bought the elder scrolls it is going to go spiraling downhill. they charge 15 bucks a month to play it. that is just pathetic.
An enormous let down
I don't have much to say regarding the game itself. I've only played the beta, which was pretty darn good. The one thing that holds me back COMPLETELY is the price of owning and playing this game. Here is the math I did to figure out how much it would cost to play this game for one year: $60 (the game itself) + $15 (monthly subscription fee) * 12 (months in a year) = $240. This DOESN'T include the price of XBOX LIVE either. I can buy 4 brand new xbox games with that money. If I were to play the ESO for another year, it would cost me $420. All in all, I'm just not going to pay for this.
D&D and TESO
The Elder Scrolls Online right now looks rather intimidating with a 60 dollar price tag along with a 15 dollar monthly subscription fee but thinking about and looking at it, this game offers alot to the general public. With it's rich and indepth character creation system, and the 4 typical classes that as you level you can make them go down a more specific type of gaming style to our needs. The game offers alot for the players to play around with. Can't wait to pick it up and dive into it :)
ONLINE ONLY ?
Here is my issue with it,why should i have to pay to play on line ,when i have already paid to purchase the game ? most online only games really end up having issues,I enjoyed paying the story at my own pace.I am worried its just going to be a waste of money,with lag,and all the other junk that goes on with only line only games..cheating,mods,and controllers that make it hard for everyone else to enjoy the game..
Do not get your hopes up for this one...
I have participated in a number of beta's for this game...and for someone with hundreds of hours logged into Skyrim and even more in Morrowind...this "game" should not even carry the Elder Scrolls name.. It does nothing as well as either of those...storyline was generic and nothing special , had decent voice acting though...graphics are not as good as Skyrims , at all...combat is an even further watered down version of what you are used to in Skyrim...and do not even get me started on that completely HORRID character creation in it...
About that $15 fee?
That will not last why? Because gamers will NOT SUPPORT GREED because the company says, "Look at the Sh)t we did, pay us". It is not going to work all MMO's, will be eventually free to play. I DO NOT CARE what you say about will quality cost more. People will not pay that fee when there are better games that will be out later in the year. For example, Halo 5 and Mass Effect 4 will be out later in the year. : )
Not very promising so far
First of all Bethesda has nothing to do with this game and never will (meaning the creaters of Morrowind Oblivion and Skyrim have nothing to do with this game), ZeniMax Online Studios is in complete control of the project and they are completely fresh and new to the gaming world, meaning this will be the first game they have ever made with Bethesda doing nothing but backing them financially and letting them use their product names. This itself isn't relay that big of a deal, but all the info they've released about the game so far dose'nt seem like its going to turn out very well. They have announced that they are throwing out all guidelines for MMOS such as classes, dungeons closed to the parties in it and rolls (tanks, dps, heals) all of which have been tried and caused games to flop (guild wars 2, rift ect.) also the game's main focus is apparently going to be on PvP with hardly any PvE which to some people is good news but for the majority of MMO players isn't going to fly, and as for me that system isn't going to work very well since I enjoy lore more then bashing people's skulls in which appears to be what this game will be focusing around. if all of that dose'nt turn you off this game if you do get it for the Xbox One or PS4 you will have to pay the $15 monthly fee for the game on top of your Xbox Live/PSN subscription. I had high hopes for this game but unfortunately I believe this game will be a flop. I do hope they change these flaws but as of right now unfortunately I will have to pass on this game.
