Have gaming journalists just excepted now that no MMO will release in a fit state at launch so no reviews with scores will be done until at least a month after launch?

 

As for the MMO itself it is good to see both a sandbox and SF game that is on the radar and has some quality, we are paupers when it comes to anything other than fantasy tank and spank.


It make you wonder what Funcom and Cryptic did with all their money. SOE too.

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

Its a neat game, and ive already heard some guildies talking about it.   But while the game seems as if it could be fun for a bit, i dont see much of a future beyond a very small core group of players.

Looks really interesting, much more than how TOR evolved. Worth a try for sure!

Perpetuum is complex and EVE is complex. Does that make it hardcore?

I thought the game was awful. Everything from the evnironments to the mechs looks downright ugly. The combat is a joke, it is boring and heavily repetetive, very much like EvE.  It is obviously a niche product, but I don't see it getting far. Why play this boring product if you can play a more refined and fine tuned boring product like EvE ( boredom is my opinion obviously)

If I understand correctly, the only thing different about combat in P is that you can somewhat dodge attacks, but its still auto attack game? Why, why do game companies insist on boring combat :/ 

Oh well. The game will still be good, but I just can see myself going back to that sort of combat after playing AoC, DFO, MO, APB, etc

having only read about this game, I surmise it's a pile of crap parading as a deep complex experience due to a clunky interface and a user-unfriendly set of game mechanics.

Well just so long as you read about it.

Played this a bit in beta and didn't care for it. Way too much stuff copy and pasted right out of EVE, the same slow paced, overly-turn-based-feeling combat and not nearly as much depth as EVE. Even the setting lacks the depth of EVE, fighting for control of one planet is nowhere near as deep as conflicts spanning an entire galaxy.

Don't get me wrong, I am not that into EVE either but I would play EVE over Perpetuum. Big mechs are cool, but unfortunately the gameplay in this big mech game is just not what I'm looking for. Perpetuum will probably end up being a small niche game and probably have a very small following especially with the MMO's coming out in the next 6-12 months.

So, I'm curious. He mentions it has an offline training system similar to EVE; can you also gain experience/skills through in-game actions like combat or mining? The thing about EVE that really turned me off was seeing that 1 month+ training time and not being able to do a thing about it.

Yes, the system is very same in principle. There is a small difference though, that your Extension points accumulate over time and you can distribute them whenever you want instead of setting their distribution in advance.

With real-time training, you do not have to spend your time leveling(grinding) but you can actually play the game.

Marketing and publishing. You don't wanna know how many millions those companies waste on advertisement and overhyping alone.  Pure waste, that could have been spend in actual development of the game itself.

Does Perpetuum still have the same mechanics as the closed beta? Because if it does, it's got to be one of the most dry and boring games ever.

 

Collecting resources was an epic waste of time and moving your character around in combat felt more like an RTS than an RPG of any sort. In fact, much as I wanted this game to be pwnsauce, they ripped the entire goddamn GUI out of EVE Online. It felt like EVE in many respects... Save for the fact that it's magnitudes more boring. Even missions consisted of nothing more than a text terminal dump of the objective. About the only positive point I was able to find was that it was pretty in terms of graphics. Of course, all of that could have changed, but it was bad enough not to entice me into further downloads. Playing this game was literally like watching somebody exclaim, "EVE Online! But with Mechs!"  ..just infinitely more fail added to change things up.

 

Back to playing Iris Online.

Having read your post, I surmise you are a shallow individual who is easily influenced by others opinions... but I could be wrong.

Never lose your way, or someone else might find it

11/28/10 12:24:24 PM#57

should rather just be if your looking for an ugly over complex game, click here. The questing system seems to be shit even by EvE standards, the combat system although it worked with space ships it doesnt work well on ground, its repetative and boring. The world lacks vegatation and dodads. Its like half of the planet is just bleak texture.

Eve is and was a great game with stunning visual effects, this got to be the ugliest mmo Ive tried to date (not sure wether to involve the 2d ones in the eqvation). Sure it may work in space to just throw in some rocks and add a space station but on ground you cant have just brown/grey texture its horrible and add some excentric flowers to cover it up which must contain 0.1% of the total landmass anyway.

In short I like/d EvE, I dislike/hate Perpetuum

i trialed perpetuum for about 4 hrs, uninstaled it. The game is graphically appalling.  The combat is bugged ( delay responseiveness).  The topography is mundande and repetitive, enemy ai bots are overpowered and you die often. The existing store/market is rather non intuitive.  It's just really UGLY.

so say we all

I trialed perpetuum for about 4 days, still playing it. The game is graphically amazing.  The combat is fun.  The topography is varied and interesting, enemy ai bots are balanced but you will die sometimes if you don't pay attention. The existing store/market is rather small, but will grow over time.  It's just really AWESOME.

I have the exact opposite opinion here, and find the same things he's complaining about to be strengths the game already has over Eve. So don't take the words of Eve faithful as gospel. Try it out yourself first. I hated Eve, Perpetuum however is looking great.
