OP  1/10/12 12:44:59 PM#1

The title basically sums it up. Is it worth paying $40 for the game and $15 a month to play it? There looks to have been alot of good changes since release for the better. I read a fair bit on the game so I understand that its currently in prelude stage with world building and exploration the main focus. Is it about time to dive in and get dirty? :-)

If what you want, is what you said in your post. Then absolutely jump right in now, and join in with the world building.

I have 3 accounts now, all paying subs and I dont regret it.

Plus the communication from the Development team is great, and they listen to the players which is nice.

The lack of responses tells me population is very low in Xsyon. For a sandbox box game low population can easily kill the experience. Something tells me if I buy this game I'll find myself solo, gathering and crafting for my house until I get bored and cancel my sub.

The concept seems great but the lack of population and lack of things to do other then build could possibly kill this game before they even get past prelude...is that a rough assumption of the future of Xsyon?

It could be that the people playing the game don't post here.

Xyson has some screen shots up of some fairly extensive player built structures. Very few shots with actual players, but somebody had to put all those buildings and fences together.

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

Really... if money isn't an issue. I would say yes. I paid the $40, subbed for a month or two, then quit. But the experience was still unique and great, and you know what, extremely memorable. VERY memorable, I remember more about Xsyon than I remember about the last month of playing SWTOR.

Played it for a couple months...
...great idea and vision for a game, though it didn't seem ready to play. Calling it a prelude didn't change the (reasonable) expectation of most that the game be playable/fun.
By the time I quit, it was a ghost town.

I paid a lot less for it before it kind of released.

 

The gathering and crafting can be very repetitive but its cool at the end once you have built a for or somthing..

I dont think i would pay $40 and then a monthly sub for it at the moment, saying that the small dev team is very active and they do interact with the community... I guess if you want to support them and give the game a go then hell yeah give it a go.

 This is my feeling as well. The idea behind the game and direction NG is going could make for an epic gaming experience. Other then minecraft I don't think theres another MMO that lets you manipulate the landscape. Whether population is low or not, something sounds very cool about building my own living area. Even if I do cancel within 2-3 months I can still return down the road. The more I read about this game the more I want to try it..seems to be one of the most unique MMOs around right now.

i recently bought th game and im now regreting it....i love sandbox games and thi sgame is a great if not best sandbox but needs alot of work...the population is gawdawful low but the ppl that r on are very helpful. Now is it worth 40 bucks? i say no...29.99 maybe but the sub fee should be waved or lowerd.

 

Its a good game dont get me wrong BUT the time it takes to get anywhere is bonkers...they give u plans to make things u cant even make cuz u dont have the tools...and to get the tools u must grind reallly hard and cross your fingers that u get the plan on your next skill lvl up.(plans are random and u wont always get one every lvl nor the one u want i found that out the hard way and ppl telling me in game)

 

to sum it up. game is a great hardcore sanbox.

population is low but the pl who play are great ppl

graphics r ok....alot of unpolished buggy areas.

the learnign curve is steep...but not as steep as MO :p

 

i give this game a sandbox score of 8.5/10

with a lil polishing here n there terrain wise i would give it a 9

how's the new "twitch combat" system?

 

this part has me very interested.

 

is it all melee?  any ranged/magic?

 

do you manually block, parry and step out of attacks?

 

manual crosshair aiming?

 

how's the mob AI?

 

couldn't find any youtube videos showing the new combat last i looked (admittedly not recently).

The End

i don't expect to like Darkfall, altho i may like it MORE than other MMOs. i know it is gonna have a very frustrating level of grind to it, even if its significantly less than most. waiting for a pure FAST action virtual world. dice rolling & character levels (even "skills") IN COMBAT should have never carried over from pencil & paper to a computer that can reasonably model 3D spaces and objects

Population is indeed small but dedicated. The problem I had with the game is that building and crafting are really the only things to do. Combat is so/so but there is really not many mobs to fight and the pvp, while there, is pointless. There is really no reason to fight another player at the monent.

OP  1/17/12 11:02:32 PM#13

Well after watching some youtube videos tonight I'm still very interested. Its the $40 and $15 a month price thats making me hesitate. I think I'd enjoy the game for what it is now, which basically looks like building and making a place to call home. Theres is a good chance that I may get bored if thats all there is to do though. Is there no open world pvp currently? What can someone expect if they go out exploring looking to get into some trouble?

It is worth it if you want to invest in the future. But as it is right now it will take some creativity and imagination to stay interested. Not too much content and features but it is the only fully sandbox mmo game currently out (And by sandbox I mean you can literraly alter terrain).

If you are looking for great PVP, or PVE. Move along and wait about 6 to 12 months.

 

If you are looking for a world you can change, terraform build up. Xsyon is a great game for you. Its not going to happen overnight and there is some time to be spent into it. Ive spent 100s if not 1000s of hours building up a city/tribal area and its been great fun.

 

PVE, and the PVP are boring, flawed, lackluster, pointless, rare, and just not very fun. However, the game is getting better not only all around, but also in combat/AI/PVP areas.

if the combat was actually fun, thats all the "reward" i would need from it.  i don't need to be rewarded some points/faction/loot or anything other than a fun and fair battle where both players have equal/equalish opportunities to win based on real life skills.   it is a full loot game tho right?  if somebody is killed the killer can take anything on the victim's corpse?

i've never seen a good melee fightin system outside of "fighting games" (or maybe Die By The Sword) tho, so if there is no ranged combat at all, then it probably has no hope of satisfying me.

so the recent combat upgrade to "twitch combat" doesn't seem to be much different from the old combat?

real life skills are not much of a factor still?

just 2 people standing toe to toe mashing an attack button as fast as they can with no point in dodging/blocking attacks, etc?

There is open world pvp and its full loot, well at least it was when i played.

The only safe zones are your clan areas.

I did log on to try the new combat system and it really was not that much better than the origional one. They have a long way to go befroe the system is any good.

 

The devs are pretty active so thats a good thing. I think at the moment $40 is asking a lot..

Why speculate and not trying it out by yourself? Whats the point of this? A game is an experience, not a theoretical philosophy lesson.
