Gamespot released some of the best WAR gameplay footage yet. The videos show RvRing with several classes like the Witch Hunter, Chaos Chosen, and Witch Elf. It’s far too cool for me to try and explain but a few details that caught my eye were the spell effects (watch for the AoE spells) and combat animations – they’re amazing.
There is also an interview (seems more like commentary) with Paul Barnett that surprised me. He was a little more reserved than we usually see him. He was very level-headed and did a great job explaining how Warhammer is less like a computer game and more like a hobby. When Paul first started pushing this idea that WAR was a hobby it raised an eyebrow for me. After some thinking and deep meditation I have decided to embrace the terminology because it encompasses far more than simply calling WAR a game or a mmo. It’s a total experience like DAOC was – and that is perhaps the missing link in my quest to understand what made DAOC so much better than any other mmo ever.
