Keen and I both picked up early backer packages for Marvel Heroes well before the game came out. I had high hopes going in when it launched but my hopes…
I have zero faith in the MMO devs of this generation to create a MMO based on a major IP, especially an IP like Marvel. I think the isometric view is a great choice, like Ultima Online, but I doubt Marvel Heroes will be a true virtual world. In fact, I bet it won’t resemble a MMORPG at all. Everything I’ve seen leads me believe it will work like Diablo 3 does, and if that’s a MMO then I’m out of touch. Then there’s the free-to-play, and I don’t need to elaborate.
First and foremost, I feel for the employees losing their jobs. This can’t be a surprise to anyone, though. SWTOR hasn’t done as well as anyone hoped, and I think this is exactly what I was talking about yesterday. MMO’s are not single-player games, and single-player games were never meant to be turned into MMO’s. SWTOR is a mediocre MMO and a sub-par single-player game -only- because Bioware chose to go for this hybrid model instead of focusing on making it one or the other.
