My Mission is to find those great MMO games from japan that are soon to be available or never will be and talk about them and do some reviews on MMOs from all over the world bad or good I will not discriminate ;D
1 Grinding is not an option: you don't have to focus on a combat class in fact you can have other players do it for you, hence creating a player mercenary system
2 Port Conquering: tho not yet implemented I am looking forward to it conquering other nations ports to improve your countries trade and economy.
3 Nations Alignment system: Wars will break out and traveling to a hostile nation players and NPC ships will be aggressive towards you
4 Exploration system: Gain exp simply by traveling and seeking out wildlife or discovering ruins of an ancient civilization
5 Realistic world map: Uses the map of the real world and visit real world destinations
6 Lots of real ships to choose from: Even more when the expansions come out a total of more than a hundred are available
7 Music composed by Yoko Kanno: One of the greatest music composers for Japanese RPG games
8 Thousands of quests: It is rumored to take atleast 3 years to finish them all and that's without the expansions
9 Historical reference: It makes use of real people from the time line of the voyage century
10 Real prizes: Netmarble gives away some really cool stuff no just in game items
"5 year wait and the game still looks better than most MMORPGS"
First day in UWO CBT I had a BLAST! ^_^probably one of the most unique MMORPG I have played and probably one of the most realistically hard one but that ain't a bad thing either!
Character creation was pretty fun lots of character models to choose from, from a fat man to a small child but facial customization is limited to only 3 faces not much to complain about. since appearances can later be altered with the use of items.
My first character was a battle type "Akira" well in terms of game-play the game is realistically brutal, I felt like a country bumpkin out on the first day of the big city when I finished the 2Hrs schooling process and learned the basics I decided to adventure a bit further out into sea. Well that was a big mistake I was attacked by a pirate and well like real life they took everything I had even my equipment :(
Well they left me with 1K Gold and my ship but that was like having a dime and being completely naked running out of money in this game is as good as game over!. So you better play it out right money is easy to gain as it is easy to lose too so use the banks since you gain interest if you keep money on the banks
Well that dint put me down I decided well If you fail once the second time ill make it so I decided to make a new character named her "Aika" yup! just after me this time Ill get it right! a new class this time "Adventurer"
Well things seem to go smoother now and so i am going to stick with "Aika" adventuring is fun searching the seas for treasures. New towns and searching for diff kinds of wildlife and reporting to your town official of your discoveries. That's how adventurers make money you can olso make money by taking on guild quests. since there are 3 types of guilds same as classes merchant, adventure and battle each missions also differ.So want to try something new just change classes of make a new charter
Zero grinding you don't have to stare at the monitor slashing a monster the game puts you on the move always there are no stats your Job level is the only thing that you need to level up and also your skills but combat is not the only way to increase them. traveling, and trading even fishing levels your character up. If you try the game and think the tutorial is too long and boring well after that the game becomes one big steady to fast pace adventure I haven't felt bored or anything as much I just want to go dive in back and play more!
Uncharted Waters Online will start CBT in less than 1 day I already downloaded that HUGE! client and installed it in my P.C though not much is know about the game only those few brave enough and have the knowledge and capabilities to enter the Japan/Korea Servers are probably the only experienced players outside the region. I have been looking all over the place for guides and wikis and the only information I can get is from the main website and even youtube videos are unclear and uninformative. So if any of you out there know about any wikis and guides please send me a link.
Well here are a list of stuff im expecting on CBT
CBT: the Net Marble team sure has a funny way of describing CBT because as soon as the servers are up anybody can just jump in the game and play so its more like OBT but no complaints from me I love it ^_^
3 Classes of Ship Adventure, Battle, And Trade: and 63 ships per class 189 total ships you can customize your ships appearance and feel and that's just the first release don't believe me check it out here:
You can also check them out here:
Adventure Type: http://global.netmarble.com/uwo/guide/ship.asp?mCode=1
Trade Type: http://global.netmarble.com/uwo/guide/ship.asp?mCode=2
Battle Type: http://global.netmarble.com/uwo/guide/ship.asp?mCode=3
Adventuring: One of the Biggest reasons I want to play! you start out with a totally undiscovered map similar to fog of war. you sail in search of new land braving random weathers from topical storms to calm seas, but not only that your crew may suffer scurvy, black plague, even home sickness take care of your crew or you will have an actual mutiny on your ship as if pirates weren't a problem enough.
While discovering uncharted lands you may dig and discover treasures buying maps may help out. but its not only treasures your looking for undiscovered ruin's also even herbs and plants be a geologist a hunter, a ruins explorer, a spice trader
Class types: There are three basic class types Adventure, Trade and Battle with 24 job classes each never seen before in other games like Excavators, Helms persons Salvager, Surgeon, Filibuster, Bounty hunter, Patisserie, Tailor each with unique skills and benefits and roles to play in the game
You can also check them out here:
Adventure Type: http://global.netmarble.com/uwo/guide/characterClass.asp?mCode=1
Trade Type: http://global.netmarble.com/uwo/guide/characterClass.asp?mCode=1&sCode=2
Battle Type: http://global.netmarble.com/uwo/guide/characterClass.asp?mCode=1&sCode=3
The cities do try to look as much as possible similar to the cities back then not just random similar looking buildings bunched together London really looks cloudy and gloomy, Venice canals are present even the sandy city of Istanbul looks magnificent its not just about looks but what you can do in the cities and what facilities are available like the guild office, the company, craft shops and may more check them all out here:
you can check the video guide and take a short tour of the cities in the game here:
With only a few days to till CBT im looking for as much information about the game so if you have any share it with me. Hope to see you guys soon in game
"See you Tomorrow in UWO!"
Well one place I love going to is the arcades every mall here has one sometimes even two or three. The Games I love to play are King Of Fighters I love to make peoples jaw drop when I kick their butt with my all girls team of Athena, Mary, and King since my all time favorite in the series is KOF 2003 and KOF 98. I also love spending time on Initial-D 4th and 5th stage. I probably spent countless amounts of money racing and getting licenses its all fun but be prepared to spend since that's what arcades are suppose to do you spend money after each racing match. Well that kinda turned me off, well you may call it a penny muncher place but believe me the amount I spent could probably buy me a new car literally.
Last year a game called CTRacer was released when im tired of the usual MMORPG grinding and guild politics I relax and race along the streets or go race downhill battles similar to Initial-D. This game relaxes me and even better its not a penny muncher the game is totally free to download and play. Now mid last year I stopped playing the game due to lack of any major updates and hacks also news of the pending Need For Speed Online caught my attention. So I decided to wait but just recently they decided to update the game and it seems the the update will be one big massive update from new licensed vehicles to engine parts, maps, even security updated to finally kick those evil hackers out and give us players a fair chance to enjoy the game
There are many race types like, downhill (similar to Initial-D) Regular street racing, and circuit racing there's even a quest mode and license mode to unlock higher level cars from class C to S similar to Gran Tourismo also parts like engines, shocks, neons, and a lot more and if your tired of racing you can play the cop chase mode or "road runner" as known in-game and ram the speeding law breakers out of the streets.
The maps do give you the Initial-D feel I have a copy of the one and only Initial-D released game on the P.C and from what I can say this game feels more Initial-D then the actual Initial-D game (LOL! it was a bad game)
One of the major strong points of the game was there were several events the GameMasters love to interact with the players giving contests and major prizes as much as 10,000 USD worth of items, merchandise even cash prizes were given away in the global CTracer tournament and even tho lack of any major updated the game was still enjoyable due to the online community and active GameMasters
So if you feel that your tired of the usual grinding and politics take a break enjoy yourself on one of my favorite online racing game. Ill be making a new account some time soon. So think you can beat me? I DON'T THINK SO!

But this game is a definite try lots of information about the game can be seen in their FaceBook page since this game will be released now on the English servers i never tried the Japan and Korean servers since it would be pointless for me, I don't speak and read those languages.
