So Funcom

So Funcom is using their brains. It shouldn't be any type of news but it is. Someone managing a big game company takes a look at the market and find a good moment to reach a really good position in the mmorpg business. I'm talking about Age of Conan and Anarchy Online. Don't you see it?. Age of Conan appears to be a good game. It's not a native sandbox game but it have some features, good character customization and player cities. The game will launch this year, or at least we hope so. There is no Modern "Adult" Fantasy game on the market in this times. I mean, fantasy game suited for adult players. Sure you can play EQ2, it's a good game, but it doesn't have an Adult Art direction. Sure you can play Lotro but it doesn't too, and its a good game too. The same goes for some more AAA titles, good games but not aimed natively for adult players. I'm sure a good amount of people will leave their actual games to try AoC only because this one have a Mature art design. Like Oblivion, or Gothic 3.

And, someone on Funcom took a look at the sci-fi mmorpg's market and thought, hell, there is no modern sci-fi games out there:

Eve online: I know it's a good game, but it's too hardcore for most of us.

SWG: I played it in November and December of 2007... Most of us know what a Joke of game it is.

Anarchy Online: It's an old game with outdated graphics... Doh!, well... Funcom will give AO a brand new graphics engine.

IMO, Funcom is trying to earn a good share of the mmorpg market by launching a good fantasy game and relaunching a good sci-fi game. Good for Funcom!

I'm playing DDO

Oh well, as a first post I'll talk about what I'm playing right now. I'm playing DDO. I know, I know...  Some of you will say that this game is a niche game , or it is death... Some others will say is one of the best game sin the world of mmos. I usually don't care too much about people opinion's. I think you should experience things for your self, so some time ago, last summer I took the trial and it was awesome. I liked how the rogue and the ranger worked. You can hide in shadows, and you need to find shadows to be hidden, of course it still depends of your numbers on your hide and move silent abilities(well i cant remember if they are skills, abilities or enhancements, but they are there), but the light surrounding you have something to do with you and the enemy trying to find you so i had a blast. No need to say more, I bought the game and start playing it. I made cleric, I usually like being a healer, and In my opinion is a good way to learn about a game because everybody groups with you and you see how people play and you can ask a lot: "You are the healer they can't get angry with you, lol". 2 months later I was missing the EQ2  group mechanics, (for me, EQ2 is one of the best games when we talk about grouping) so I closed the account and went back to EQ2.
But you know what?, you can't go to a game trying to feel like in other game, it's obvious but, I needed to learn that lesson. A week ago I was without any game to play and thought: Doh! I spent 50 bucks on this game and there it is, account closed. So with a bored and open mind I started to play. I'm  having a blast. I have no more to say, my cleric is waiting me.
