Oh noes..... another end game raid which most players will not see. Wonder why do they come out with this kind of game play again? Didnt they learn from WoW?

Wow that was one massive assumption on your part. What makes you think that high level dungeons will be remotely like WoWs? Especially since PvE gear means nothing in PvP in the game, and that crafted gear is almost just as good. These dungeons are for those that enjoy them. Unlike WoW, they aren't necessary to compete. In AoC Player skill > gear every time. :)

I was pretty hyped about this game during the first year or so of development but as more and more info was released my interest began to drop. This article now appears to confirm two things that I was worried about, namely 'sparce ui & hybrid servers'. To me this simply says dumbed down for the X-Box. I could be wrong of course but I can't see how as the complexity of most modern mmo's would be completely out of the scope of a console. The realtime combat system also may be innovative for an mmo but at the same time kind of defeats the point of it all. I am somewhat old fashioned I suppose when it comes to rpg's in that I believe the characters skills and abilities should be more important than the players twitch skills, which in AoC does not appear to be the case. Player skills should come to the fore in how the character is built and not how fast his thumb flies across a gamepad. This also of course raises the point that a mouse and keyboard ( especially the expensive gaming mice and keyboards ) are infinately better than an X-Box controller when it comes to twitch based games, lending more weight to the belief that the ui will be very much dumbed down to level the playing field. I will likely try the OB when it comes around and reserve final judgement until then but as of this moment my interest is barely above luke-warm.

That or 'gasp' maybe they made the game based on novels that are extremely brutal and sexual. Go read some R. E. Howard and see how much scantily clad women play a role in them. :) You are 'definitely' reading to much into it. I mean yea, sex sells. But the world of Conan, Hiboria, is very sexual in nature. The books were written 70 years ago. It was a different time. They didn't just add some sexual side-tones to the game to get it to sell. It's part of the lore.

 Yet strangely, it's Conan that's lately been getting a lot of bad vibes about immaturity, and not WAR.

There's a reason for that, and it's illustrated blatantly in this article.  Because one company is marketing it's product like adults, based on it's gameplay and design rather than on 'Woot! We got bewbies and blood!' and doesn't have to keep repeating 'It's mature! IT'S MATURE DAMMIT' while acting the total opposite almost every time it advertises itself.

I'll let you guess which company is which.

I do agree that the lore behind the game is sexual in nature and has a lot of gore and such, however, as many have replied...  The game is not being marketed like it's a mature game.  Anytime you can quote a developer making an exclamatory selling point on the words "We've got boobies!"... thats not mature...

Exactamente.

This bothers me; I became interested in Conan lore when I heard about this game quite a while ago, and I feel like this is the opposite of the point of the world.

"OMG BEWBS!" is not the angle I feel like fans of the IP (I sort of include myself, but I am new; haven't even read the books) should be/are quite offended by that quote. I don't want the devs to be randy preteens at heart. I think that this is a gritty world, and yes, there is sexuality, but there is sexuality in the real world and not everone acts like this. I have a mature relationship with my lady friend, if you catch my meaning, but this isn't really the attitude I feel like I take when we are in "adult" situations.

Hyboria is brutal and savage and sexy, but I feel like the devs are missing real sexuality in favor of digital breasts.

Although, now that I think about it, I think I *do* get temporary buffs from her.

It's going to be a female avatars' paradise. Just make one with big boobs and log in. Money will flow.  

Funcom knows that the majority of teen players will sell an arm and a leg to play this. The first MMO with mature esrb targeting teens. Nice marketing.

Heh, just had a nightmare vision of what this game could turn into if things go wrong:

- OMG BOOB!!11!!!
- LOLzor rtard U meen "NOOB"!??! keke
- WTF auto-pwnd... ROFLCOPTER...

 

This is one of the games I'm looking forward to. Though these days you pretty much never know how a community will turn out beforehand. So fans, cross your fingers :)

Guys/girls, oh my god. Tharaldsen was obviously joking; Conan is not a "OMG, WE HAVE BOOOOBS!" game, nor do the developers behave like that either. What I hate about pre-release discussion is all the assumptions, and all the speculation based on out-of-context quotes like this.

Really would like to hear some imputs on fighting system. It sounds and looks good...but how dificult it is to actually use?


For "twitch" skill-oriented games I tend to stick to gaming consoles, so I'm interested in how this game will combine more interactive combat with the traditional elements of an MMORPG. Admittedly, I had zero interest in this game initially (though I think Conan is a great license) but the more I read about it, the more it intrigues me. My main concern is they're gonna have to fall on one side of the fence (whether PC or console), since this game will ultimately be available for both platforms. I think if it's too twitch-based the mechanics could be a pain in the ass for PC gamers and give console players a definite advantage--whereas if it's the other way around, it may be more fulfilling for PC gamers but prove a dull experience for console gamers.

 

I never played EQOA, so maybe people who have played console-based MMORPGs could shed some light on how this has worked in the past (though I think this'll be the first title where PC and console gamers are playing on the same servers). Regardless, the devs' enthusiasm for this game is contagious and I'm excited to see how it turns out.

 

 

 

What the heck are you talking about?? PC not twitch based? You have to be joking, right? The BEST combat in ANY game ever is via keyboard and mouse.

 

 


If your reading comprehension were just a grade level or two higher, you wouldn't be so confused. I'd take a console controller anyday over mouse-and-keyboard for any twitch-based game, whether we're talking FPS or hack-and-slash. I feel that the split second decisions that must be made in traditional "arcade style" game play are way better executed with a joystick than a mouse. If I'm performing some complex combo move, I'd rather leave it up to a few joystick toggles and button taps than the sloppy mouse point-and-click in one hand and fumbling over the keyboard with the other.

I'm pretty confident system specs have not been released yet. They usually do some tweaking of the game through beta and release the "official" required and recommended specs a couple months before launch, so it should be coming soon.

Yes, you can play Age of Conan with Windows XP and most DirectX 9 cards. DX10 and Windows Vista is only required for DX10 graphics.

OMG!

Yeah I agree 100%.  A demon feeling herself up is hardly what I would call 'mature.'  That screenshot was one that I thought was really immature to put in one of their content updates on their site.

Also, I still can't believe that their marketing team was like "You know our game is going to be released in October, I've got it.  Lets show a demo of a 25-man raid (24?).  That'll really get them pumped about our mature, brutal, pvp-based game."

Someone should get fired for that stroke of brilliance.
