OP  6/28/12 6:41:20 AM#1

According to a new press release on the Funcom site, the Norwegian game developer has secured the rights to LEGO mini-figures. The ultimate plan is for a new MMO with the LEGO team and Funcom working together to create "maximum accessibility".

“The market for family-friendly online experiences intended for children and youngsters is brimming with potential,” says Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas. “Being able to work with a world-renowned brand such as the LEGO brand to develop an MMO for this audience is incredibly exciting to us as game developers and for Funcom as a company. This is source material we all know and love and we simply cannot wait to get started working with the LEGO Group on realizing this exciting project.”

At least it can't be worse than LEGO Universe.

Even though it is Funcom, I have to agree. Lego Universe was such a waste of great potential.

I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

Ah yes, it makes sense. AoC paid for TSW, now TSW is going to pay for that.

*sigh* Will a company ever actually reinvest and build upon one of their existing games?

 

 

They need to go back to making single player games, because they just don't seem to understand that once an MMO releases that it's *not* time wheel back on putting effort into them.

Yeah a business that is constantly fudning its next project with it's last, keeping all its employees in a job in a recession is clearly doing something wrong.

What compnay are you CEO of and how is it doing in the current economic climate?

I would rather make games and keep making them better... Just making a game to fund another seems cold and... unprofessional, selfish... What other words for "Greedy Assholes"?

K Funcom released AoC and it wasn't ready for launch... and they paid the price... are they different from all the other companies that release MMOs over the last 6 years? No. (Rift changed all that)

So I don't see the point in hating on em. They'll get better over time as they learn their lessons.

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

look at  AoC for example, first the bugs and glitches and what not and then they whent F2P, ''oh this is gonna be good''

WRONG!

even if you had bought the expansion you still needed to pay a monthly sub to even get in the area's of that expansion.

 

So ye...just no

Funcom have made some of the best MMORPGs on the market...

 

AO was awesome fun.

AOC was another awesome game

TSW is probally one of the best themepark games i have played in a long time..

 

So how is funcom = instant fail?

Subjective argument.

To me AoC was a decent game upto the expansion, which immediately killed my interest due to the massive grind and screwed up new gear.

TSW might be the best themepark you played lately. To me it felt lifeless and without inspiration.

Never played AO, but I didn't hear anything good from the launch.

So Funcom has yet to prove to me they learned anything from the past.

Its funcom. It WILL be worse than LEGO Universe. Even if graphics and game mechanics are better they will charge you box, sub, cash shop with you having to buy every individual piece, and have ingame adverts running every 30min. How is that not worse?

Before people start yelling at me for exaggerating yea, I might be alittle. But it seems the next logical step from thier current MMO.

LEGO Universe was not fail at the end. After LEGO took over from NetDevil thier internal team was actually doing wonders to the game. Alas too late.

If I was to judge this before I tried TSW I would say it will be a bad game, after playing TSW though ill say it will probably be one of the best games ever released :P

Now AoC had a bumpy ride, but it looks like it weathered out the storm as well by changing their model with todays standards. So I still don't see a fail in both games that are still around.

Now if both games were not available, but all means, call it a failure.

 

If there's anything they weathered down in AoC was the population.

And i wouldn't consider their payment model today's standard at all. They simply have an extended Trial model with sub attached which i personally consider archaic and seriously affects the game's player retention in it's current state.

However, i still have a glimpse of hope now they have TSW nearly out of the door, they'll put some resources back into AoC and improve it.

 

But these news don't give me much confidence in Funcom. Great concepts no doubt but poorly executed and personally, never reach(ed) their true potentials.

I wish I could take a picture of my lego collection and send it in to get free game items.  I've spent so much money over my childhood buying lego sets, I could've bought a couple of cars by now lol.  I don't really play with them that much now.  Other than my dinosaurs I made back when I was young on my window seal, I never even look at them....now I want to go play legos...maybe i'll build a life size T Rex...I got a 2 foot tall one hehe.

Lego is timeless though. It's an investment you can pass along.

[mod edit]Nothing like throwing money away on something that will never generate any.  Hard to notice that a prior lego MMO tanked big time.
