Looks fan-fu**ing-tastic! I just can't wait for this one. I just hope it will play as well as it does in my wet dreams :P Also, i do hope that there will be many people that actually are in to roleplaying so that one may avoid the normal chase after exp, money and loot.

The environments and art style to me are totally uninspiring. From the textures that don't quite fit, the vague palette and the structures and plants straight out of a preset library. I've seen more accomplished atmosphere in WoW, modeling and texturing bettered by any of NCSofts recent products.

Not that i'll go anywhere near an MMO as the majority are disgustingly addictive.

while i personally love the art direction i must say that the graphics are lacking behind :-/

What kind of game is this?

It's an MMORPG.

Well, also worth noting is that they boast a much more action oriented fighting system than most other MMORPGs. That and the fact that it's based on Howard's novels is enough to get me hooked. It looks pretty nice too. And crafting sounds nice as well...i guess the absence of it would be weird but it's still good to hear about it.

Man this looks so good. Hopefully it'll be a great alternative to WoW and EQ2, different enough to set itself apart and bring some new things to the table at the same time. I'm looking forward to trying out the combat system especially.

The video looked great, but the screenshots of this game is always soo overly contrasted. anything remotely dark is pitch black and anything remotely bright is pee-yellow lol..
And that looks pretty nasty imo. But hopefully there will be a simple contrast-slider ingame and then it'll look as great as the vids :)

About the game

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (6 Hours ago)
