WildStar will have various customization options which will allow you to create a rather unique character to run about with in the upcoming MMO from Carbine Studios. A video and a set of screenshots released today show you just how much variation will be on offer once the title launches during the first-half of 2014.

    It’s a shame that there aren’t co-op games like this. The combat would be better, the experience wouldn’t be so artificially extended, either. Both very valid points against the MMO, really. I don’t know, I just like this sort of wackiness, with lots of customisation, colour, and character. I just have my doubts that there’s going to be anything to have fun with beyond that.

    That’s why most MMOs other than WoW have failed, and WoW keeps people around with behavioural conditioning and social engineering, from reward schedules to peer pressure. Blizzard is at the head of its game when it comes to tricking people into continuously playing a work-like and unenjoyable game.

    This is why I’m interested in Landmark, by extension. Landmark let’s me build stuff! That’s cool, I like that. And it also offers up the boon of exploring through the best of what other people have created. So that’s lovely. I don’t know how the rest of it will be, but I have no doubt that I’ll have fun making things, and looking at things other people have made.

    But yes, Wildstar… It’s an odd beast because I mourn for it, in a while. It’s a lovely thing, and it reminds me so much of Ratchet & Clank, and what better thing could you hope to remind someone of? It seems like something I’d like looking at.

    But something I’d enjoy playing? Mh. Not so much. I don’t think.

    And the subscription worries me on top of that, because a subscription is like a “take the money and run” tactic. That always shakes my faith in something.

    Comparing a sandbox game to an MMO. Really? Much like comparing Minecraft to WOW. THey are completely different entities and genres.
