Sony Online Entertainment unveils its action-MMO game for PS3 and PC: The Agency. The graphics aren't too hot, but the game seems like it could be really fun. Here are some screenshots and artworks we got during the annoucement, a trailer/featurette should follow quickly.

Multiplayer idea I find very appealing. Graphics wise it a mixed bag, not a fan of the cartoony character design, but theres seems to be alot of light heartidness so maybe it will be a good thing.

Art work is very cool!

The graphics aren't "mind-blowing" because they don't want insanely high system requirements for PC.

Where did you hear that? It MAY have no subscription fee, but you'd still have to buy the game. The pricing model is still being decided upon.

Well duh, that's what he meant (possibly no monthly fees). He didn't mean that it would be FREE free as in you don't have to pay for it when you go get it from a store/get it from PS Store (if it was available that way).

Let's keep the discussion on The Agency and not on signatures and 360 game graphics.

OMG, you moderate mine and catfish's posts, but that guy gets a pass?!

So I suppose you agree that The Agency's graphics are indicative of most PS3 games?

Never mind that it's a PC MMO that's being ported to PS3...

Ugh, I'm thoroughly disgusted by the obvious bias here.

Hope this has free monthly subscription. If so, it'll be my second MMO. I'm looking forward to getting into a new one too. Just responded to the "recuiting" message they had on their site.

You have two choices here:

1. You either accept that you don't like the way this game looks and allow those who like the art style (like myself) post their opinions.

or

2. You can leave these "biased" forums.

Where did I say I disliked how the game looked?! I merely proffered an explanation as to why the game might not look so dazzling in some people's opinion. The graphics are perfectly serviceable IMO.

2. You can leave these "biased" forums.
I think not. I shouldn't like to give you the satisfaction...

Besides, my presence is needed to temper that of... well, let's just say, overzealous supporters of a certain other console.

No personal attacks will be tolerated on these forums. Calling someone an idiot, weasel, or anything else based on their opinion will not be accepted. Remember this when you return from your vacation so you do not take another.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (2 Hours ago)
