Regardless of art direction, pixelated graphics are popular with indie developers because they are significantly easier to develop with. It has nothing to do with one being better than the other, it's mostly due to the fact that indie devs with small teams can't spare the amount of time it takes to model 3D environments and characters when they only have one or two people making these models/sprites. This is also why independently developed 3D games are more often made by larger teams with higher budgets, because they have the time, money and man power to do so. One other reason is that pixelated games are easier to run on computers than 3D games; you don't need a fancy graphics card to play a beautiful pixelated game in 2D, whereas the best looking 3D games will require powerful computers with up to date graphics cards to be played on the highest graphical settings.
All this being said, one way is not necessarily better than the other; great games can be made with both 2D and 3D graphics. It's all about personal preference, and the way people want their games to look.

We know virtually nothing about the specifics of the war hammer game. This is a highly pointless video.

FFS make something original please! The same old WOW style combat just does not cut it anymore. Well it never "cut it" but making a 2014 game in the same mould as all the previous ones is just yawn.

Look at Elder Scrolls they are doing traditional RPG but with actual aim and defending in the combat.

Combat is something you are going to doing most in game so you might as ell make it interesting.

Sorry if you put work into the game but seriously don't bother.

I think you missed said poster's point. He was essentially saying that *this* is the next best thing, not ESO.

Wow he is 80 years old and still travelling round the world doing day long teaching sessions and meeting world leaders.

I am very happy that I was able to meet him and hope to do so again.

Happy birthday Dalai Lama.

Even for a pre-alpha this game looks terrible. Thanks for putting the video though, now I know to AVOID this game. It was always going to hard to turn this into an memo but I think they should have made players into squad commanders of NPC squads that you level up and equip to fight other enemy squads.

Given time your character could be a general of an entire army (player guild) with all members having squads in it read to battle.

That would be my take on how war hammer should be done. Making into a generic MMO with twitch combat is not going to cut it, nor is it war hammerish

Ender, Star Citizen is already a MMO game. Your wish has already been granted.
