D&D 4th Edition by 2009.

Haw

I was just informed that at GenCon this weekend, they made the announcement:

the D&D 4th Edition Player's Handbook will be released May 2008

see here: http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/welcome&dcmp=ILC-DND062006FP

Ugh. And the point of this is? I thought they perfected the rules with 3.5.

Yeah I thought so too.

Apparently they're still going to be using the d20 system. From what I read they're making a push to simplify the rules further. Some of the things they've mentioned:
-grappling simplified
-rogues won't be useless against undead, elementals, plants, etc
-fighters have more options
-casters don't run out of spells

they're unleashing some sort of online component too - a virtual gaming table kind of thing where you can talk over VoIP while everyone's looking at the same table and moving around pieces on it.

At the end of one of the presentations, the R&D guys got booed. But I think that would happen even if the new edition was handed to them on stone tablets from Gary Gygax himself. *snicker*


Jury is out until there's more info.

21/12/2012 will be the date a lot of hippie new agers will be sorely disappointed.

Yes, but expect to see some good TV documentaries on Terrence McKenna THE NEXT NOSTRADAMUS

His ideas will be publicly dismissed by many long before the End of the World hype gets into gear by early 2012, but at least they will have made a brief appearance in the mainstream.

At the very least, this will get some people thinking about novelty and realizing that the world does need new ideas. Which was probably a big part of McKenna's goal anyway.

Game Predictions:

I predict that the long awaited Mass Effect for the 360 will be the first nail in the PS3's coffin. Metal Gear will revitalize the PS3 market a bit, but it will generally continue to succeed in Japan and fail in the US.

I bet Spore, when it finally comes out and becomes instantly popular, will be the harbinger of many more open-ended, creative style games with fractillian complexity.

I've always wanted to see an MMO which blends Second Life and World of Warcraft. Something where in addition to hack & slash, you're also participating in a community and could live in a city, fight in a war, participate in government, etc. If this is ever released, it won't be by Blizzard.

D&D 4th Edition by 2009.

I think one day we'll see a web 2.0 style video game - where the game is populated with user generated content. Think myspace, but instead of making a page with info about you, you build and customize levels for your friends to explore. If this can get you laid somehow, it'll be an overnight hit.

New genres of games will eventually emerge which make use of portable systems equipped with GPS and VoIP. Games in which you have to go physically explore the world in order to play. ((Metal Gear Portable Ops for the PS3 already has something like this - the quickest way to recruit NPCs for your team is to actually wander around your neighborhood and connect to other people's wireless networks. You have a better chance of doing this if you can get closer to the signal))

What do you think - 2008 US presidential election: Will the voter turnout be higher or lower than average?

Also, I predict that around the time of the primaries, we will see a democratic candidate in a feel-good music video.

In This Thread, call it like you see it. When these things come to pass we'll have a written record that I TOLD YOU GUYS THAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN



Paris Hilton is going to reinvent herself as a tough, leather jacket wearing bad-ass.


When the Large Hadron Collider goes operational in May 2008, a lot of crazy shit is going to happen.


Moar nostalgia based movies -- Transformers and TMNT paved the way for mega blockbusters based on selling you your childhood, especially if you grew up in the 80s.



EDITED to change subject from "ITT: Call it in Advance"
