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 :-/

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 :)

    droezelke @Ian_Nottingham: My advice: try one first. I did before I was thinking of buying it. Didn't buy it because I get simulation sickness with every game I tried. (26 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Seems likely? First year it's been out in the wild.. first chance for them to give it a big go. I hope so too. (26 minutes ago)

    Ian_Nottingham @GriftGFX: I really hope we see something amazing at E3 with VR.I need a reason to purchase one since i haven't been able to try one out at a store anywhere. (28 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think it'd be pretty surprising/amazing if PSVR actually lasted several years and developed a large library, personally. (31 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I mean.. you can speculate too. I don't think anyone has a magic eight ball. I bet Sony doesn't even know. (33 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: Thanks. (36 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's probably too early to say.. but if Sony doesn't make a big fuss over VR at E3 than you'll probably have your answer. (38 minutes ago)
