OP  7/08/11 9:36:41 AM#1

Adam Tingle is taking the plunge into some of the genre's most venerable titles available, and finding out if they truly still have what it takes to compete.  For the inaugural issue, Adam journeys back to Ultima Online to see just how much life the old bird has left.

Every player has that one special MMORPG. You can remember like yesterday as your eyes met over a crowded videogame store; you remember feeling your cheeks spread to an uncomfortable red; you remember as your palms became clammy; you remember holding the box and taking in its art for the first time, slightly trembling with nerves and uttering a wordless “hello”. And then time hurtles forward; you’re looking at a webpage, your hand gently hovering over the “end subscription” button, in your eye you feel a desperate salty tear, and yet your mind is focused and concentrated. Then you click. And it ends. You don’t look back.
 
But that is a lie isn’t it? You often wonder, dream, and feel nostalgic pangs for your first virtual love. You wander through forum posts, sometimes brave enough to write a message titled “Veteran Player Returning?” or “Is it worth it?” and yet you still feel doubt and fail to finish the re-install. Well never fear, MMORPG.com has your back, and starting with Ultima Online we are entering long-forgotten worlds, checking for a pulse, and searching for signs of life, and ultimately adventure.

actually made a trial account a few days ago, to venture back into ultima with the enhanced client, sadly i vant spent more than a little hour or so ingame, because i havent had tine, but im hoping to give this a proper go, a bit bored of all the Quest grinding in newer mmos :)


 


ps: still looking forward to questing in swtor though, hoping ultima can be my 2nd game, my sandbox hideout lol :)

My new motto; Nothing worth saying takes less than a giant wall of (kinda)structured text! :D

I never played Ultima Online. BUT it WAS the first MMORPG that I've ever heard of in my life. (Personal experience, i didn't know anything about mud etc).


I remember hearing about it on the actual news on TV. That hundreds , nay even thousands of players could play and interact together at once, fighting, trading. I was fascinated, and a little bit confused....


Now she's an old girl, and although I never had the opportunity to try it out during its heyday, I salute Ultima Online for its precieved depth and vision, while getting all the more nostalgic:D

I'll list UO as my favorite MMO ever...   However, I cannot play it anymore and its not the game it was (or even close).   It does say a lot about the game that it has a community that did stick with it.

 

I really wish there was a new MMO that used the original core design and the lessons learned.

Really  1997 ?  Seems to my poor memory I was playing that game on a 14.4 modem back in 1987 ?  I was working for a laser  company then,  and a couple friends and myself used to laugh at how long it took us to cross the town .. almost a hour at times ... 


My buddy was killed by a rabbit as we had no clue how to fight in the game and he had rolled a spell caster.   We need reagents to cast spells .. you had to wait for days to get enough spell reagents to go adventuring as they were being sold out in every vendor location.   You see the resources were very limited back then. 


So I would quetion The Release date on this  Review and submit that it was 10 years earlier then what is stated.


 


I guess my memory core must be malfunctioning ...


 


I do agree that it has a special spot in my heart.

The 14.4 modem came out in 1991.

The 33.6 modem came out in 1994

Ultima Online was released on Sept 24th, 1997.

The 56K modem came out in 1998.

EverQuest was released on 16th March 1999.

 

Your memory is indeed malfunctioning.

Tried trial.


In 2 days i had 100% magery, 100% eval int, 100% meditation 100% focus, 100% wrestling and other crap. Generally i was able to make 7x100 mage char thanks to some items i have received from othe rplayer. like LRC 100%, FC 2 FCR 6 LMC 40%.

OH gosh  your Right  I guess I worked at that company for longer then I remember also. 


It was a faster modem, the 56k baud .. man I need more brain exercise ..


And a quick search has the date right of course .   I guess so many games have come and gone since that First MMO I playe,d I just figured it had to be longer .. 


 


Did I mention how much I hate those sellers Crapping up the Game threads ?  All it takes is a simple rule like the post must be in keeping with the article that it is listed under. 


Then the moderator can move all the selling posts to one huge Garbage Can Pos,t so that they all fit into that RULE and POOF  we do not have to see the B.S. of their posts.

Man I miss UO. The classic nastalga calls to me like a Siren.


 


I played when it was just Felucca. When communites were tightnit & housing was close to impossible to find. Lich Lords & silver Vanquishing weapons.


 


If someone would just buy the rights & make UO2, keep it a Sandbox, I'd pay 29.99 a month if it was anythin like the original.

They can't merge the servers because they are all different, mainly the player housing.


The players on the unofficial shards wouldn't play on the official anyway because they don't like what the game has become. I love that the game is still around but it's alien to me now.

UO was my first graphical MMO after I made the jump from MUDs. I remember my guild leader locking me in a training house to build up my skills. I had left, the door locked and I got chased by creatures in the swamp.


I have a lot of good memories and met a lot of cool people. I tried going back recently but my eyes just couldnt adjust to them after all these years of "eye candy".

Wow, funny because 14.4k didn't even exist in 1987.  Just giving you a heard time, but yes your memory is indeed malfunctioning.

You never played back in the day then. I grinded for months trying to gm swords back in 98'. The game is a shell of what it once was. Being a GM in anything back then actually meant something. Anyone remember the bone knight wall lol. I miss old UO

I am excited to know that you are revisiting the old MMORPGs that have almost been forgotten or covered up by newer generations. 

 

This was a very well written article and as a old time Ultima Online fan, I felt much nostolgia while reading it.  UO is full of a world that still strives and when you talked about the empty feel of houses that were no longer being taken care of, I could only feel a story being written as you think about it all.

 

I miss playing UO, I really do.  At times I tell myself I want to go back and try it out, but in the end I never give it time anymore.  Maybe this up coming weekend I will finally give the game time and dive back into the world that I once called home. 

 

Thanks for the read, I look forward to more!
