I'm not here to troll you die hard TES fans so please don't act like an "Apple Fanboi" who was just told the Samsung Galaxy is a better phone and flame uncontrollably.

So I have been following TESO for a while now, signed up for beta, registered at a couple fansite forums, facebook, etc,.. to discuss what little information trickled our way. I played TES games before and very much enjoyed them and was looking forward to the release. However, last week a couple friends were talking about a game they were playing that I'd not really looked into. It was free to play, free to download, so I have it a shot.

The game is called "Dungeons & Dragons Neverwinter" and many of you no doubt know of it and have played it. It is currently in open beta with no future character wipes, so basically just a buggy as hell launch being called a beta to justify the early release lol. Nothing uncommon there lol. Anyway the similarities between it and TESO, as far as we can tell from what information has trickled our way, are striking. The art style is very simlar to TESO, the minimal interface with only a handful of abilities, active dodges/blocks, soft targeting system, etc,etc...

Sure there are minor differences between the two. Slightly different lore, different races, places, etc, but for the most part, the changes to mmorpg's I was anxious to see with TESO has already been launched with Neverwinter lol. If you haven't tried it, it is free to download, free to play, pay for convenience if you choose. Give it a shot. If your at all like me you'll quickly see how close the two appear to be. Check out the facebook page too if you'd like to see what real customer service is. Up to date facebook and twitter posts. Constant contact with their customers, if you can call free to play folks customers lol.

You can google it or download it here http://nw.perfectworld.com/

There is already a topic about this game: http://www.tesof.com/topic-neverwinter

I don't judge games that I haven't tried unlike other people here, I only comment on how good/bad graphics is but I leave the mechanics and game play alone unless I had a chance to try it. The thing is, I never heard anything good about this game, from reviews, other gamers and even from my wife because she was playing this game a couple of weeks ago. I watched her played it for a little bit and it looks plain and boring.

I'm still waiting for someone to say "OMFG this game is awesome" before I even consider trying it. I'm tired of the "beta stage" excuses.

Thanks for bringing that up, Taran. Tired Tris misses things. I'll close this one, no need for doubles.
