Aion Online starts their first closed beta on Friday, mmorpg.com had a key give away yesterday.  Ys Online?  Hmm, well at least it's a title familiar from my childhood, I'll have to look it up.

Summary:

  1. Even German Chancellor Merkel is publicly criticizing the Fed, which is a rarity;
  2. Chancellor Merkel fears a financial fallout from the printing of currency;
  3. The financial institutions --the people YOU bailed-out; you will pay for it through increased prices, higher taxes, reduced services (medicare, medicaid, social security, other), and so forth-- lobbied Congress to have accounting rules changed, so they will appear more profitable.

 

Does that help?

Yep, ^^ I gathered that much before, I was just trying to be cute and make a bad joke.  I guess I am just about depress out as nothing seems to be going right these days.

Still, there are people who act as though they're offended at the very suggestion of a MMO coming out that might - gasp - require them to group up at some point... as though there aren't other several other MMOs already available that will suit them perfectly.

There's nothing wrong with there being an option for those of us who *do* enjoy grouping as well.
 

 

I understand what you are saying however I also don't think everyone is listening to each other. While someone says one thing the one on the receiving end perceives something else, but that's why we have these discussions. :)

All mmos have both grouping and solo play. The older games were more group oriented and very brutal on solo players and lately we've seen a shift in the other direction, actually more like a sudden flop.

I think we're in for a balance eventually, and I really hope and expect that FF14 will the first of those.

 


 

Personally, I think they need to stop trying to cater to both play styles in the same game.  They compete with each other for developer resources, only casuals tend to get the crappy end of the quality stick.  Make a hardcore game and make a casual game and stop punishing the players by mixing them up.

I agree with you, or at least make 2 versions of the game and simply put it on 2 different channels.

I tend to think ff14 will make 11 look like a bad memory, for as much as I hated it for the price the Ps3 is the most powerful console out there.  Since it'll be optimized to that, I'd have to say that if your computer is more than 4 years old you might think about upgrading before 14 hits the shelves.

Sorry.. I couldn't really follow all that, but when I see that many acronyms together generally it's a good bet that bad things are coming down. ^^

<licks Teala>  Do I get to keep you? ^^

I might be saying this solely because I have my nose somewhere in pretty much every political or religious discussion, so be aware of my bias right from the gate.

So what are the OT forums supposed to be for?  The description says "Use this forum to discuss anything you want to talk about - even stuff not related to MMORPGs. This forum is loosely moderated and may contain topics offensive to some people. Enter at your own risk."

So anything you want except the most common discussions we have?

MikeB never said they are banning discussion about politics or religion. He just stated that they need to reign it in a little which I agree with. If you go through this forum section the absolute worse personal attacks and out and out flaming are all in these topics. If you guys just behave like rational civilized adults there will be no problem. Behave yourselves according to the rules set down in the RoC of this site and you have nothing to worry about. All I have to say is it's about time they started to police this section as some of those threads were getting totally out of hand.

 

Bren

<whines> BUT IT'S SO MUCH FUN, to whine and moan and attack people without any good reason other than the fact that they don't agree with me.  ^^

I agree with you, lately I've avoided the off-topic forum just because some people seemed to be going out of there way to encourage attacks while others seemed dead set on starting fights.  I might have been a little guilty of that myself, but then again in some cases people were provoking others.  Perhaps they should put an age limit on access, like.. not a mental midget and a hater.. though I am not sure what number that works out to be.

Thanks Naoki, there was a couple methods there, I'll figure it out tomorrow when my brain feels like working ^^.

Solo players don't play alone...... For example in EQ2 I spent a lot of time on my own, but there's a lot you can do to contribute to the health of your guild like grinding points, or making crafts for yourself and people who need something. Being in a guild means you can chat with the people you choose to spend time with while doing whatever, it means you can schedule events, raids, dungeons and attend those. Someone needs a hand with something maybe you'll be glad to tag along.

Choosing to level solo does not automatically mean we refuse to socialize or group up with a random pug to kill the same mobs instead of competing with each other, or answer someone shouting for assistance.

Watching these threads it's like watching 2 people scream at each other while having their fingers stuck in their ears.

 

<giggles>  Well I usually just put in my earplugs because I don't like getting my fingers waxy. ^^

For my part.. Hmm..

Variety, it is the one thing capable of insuring that my wandering attentions will be captured and stay captured for a long time.  So I think I will take a page or 10 out of my favorite video game of all time, Chrono Trigger.  And mostly because it's impossible to come up a completely original idea, I won't claim that I am not stealing. ^^

Before I get into out right theft, I do have something new to add to the subject of development.  It would be a b!tch to program and a pain to implement, but it is perhaps the one thing that I could name that is guaranteed to both develop and sense of community and insure that the game would not be another clone.  Let's call it, 'Diplomatic Development', in Athens a large number of citizens were daily ushered into the forum to vote on the issues of the day, so each day or week you gather up as many players as you can and they vote on the direction of expansion, the world, the quirks and twists that change as time goes along, majority rules.  There would of course be an time delay between ratification and implementation, but it would insure that a majority of players were heard and that the game was never the same twice.

That form of development, really only plays into my idea of the perfect game.  For starters some might remember that Chrono trigger was a game where one traveled back and forth in time seeking to save the world.  While a time traveling game would be super cool, I won't steal the idea outright.  Instead I would suggest a more varied setting.  I know some rave about massive contigious worlds without instances or seperate areas, but I am suggest there be not one world but many.  Call it a linked world or a broken reality, a place where large maps are interconnected and interspersed, where infinite variety can be found just across a doorway.  These broken peices have been knitted back together by the gods and the heroes need to save them from being broken apart, or whatever.

Second, combination magic and dual attacks, while the variety of these might be a bit smaller than I might want.  Inside Chrono trigger one, two or three of the characters would combine their talents to create triple physical blows, or greater magical damage.  While each of them as individuals could do a good amount of damage the big hits came from combining.  The timing of course would be an issue, but then again most mmo's these days are real time, it might simply be a matter of one player activating such attack and his fellow party members getting an on screen notification and a chance to say yes or no.  For those people who like being in parties it would certain be an incentive to play them.

Third, New Game+, one of my biggest issues with MMO's is a total lack of replay value, if you've gotten to top, where is there to go.  Perhaps starting over in the story line in the same storyline of an MMO would not be a grand incentive.  But if one were able to reach the level cap, perhaps they might like the idea of restarting the game with a selection of races and job classes that aren't available to new arrivals, while retaining their money and perhaps their elite items for later use, or at least coupons for good stuff later on.

Four, an evolving game world.  I do realize that some MMO's have begun this, and it might or might not work out, but I for one dislike seeing the same tree over and over without the least variation.

To finish, and to step away my blatant plagirism, I would very much like to see developers step back from the Server/channel method and take a good hard look at that.  Because quite frankly in my opinion they are missing a grand oppurtunity in something that is pre-existing.  Ask any 10 players what they want in a new game and you'll get ten answers.  So why is that we all play the same games.  You've got different servers to choose from you've got different channels.  Instead of all of them leading to the same game, why not make those channels variations on a theme.  You've got one for the PvP'ers, you've got one for social, you've got one for singles, you've got one for soloists, you've got one for people looking for party.  And really why do you need to stop there when you can make an 'easy' channel for the casual players who want to glide through the game, and you've got the 'hardcore channel' for all the people who want to grind against the toughest monsters and prove their worth to their fellow gamers, while collecting the best of the legenday items.  Simply offering something a bit different on all those channels would in my opinion be the fastest and easiest way to cater to the needs of all players.

The problem is your logic.  In none of these games are you forced to solo.  You can team up for anyting, but the same cannot be said for soloers who are locked out from a lot of content that is group only.  Groupers are never denied any content, ever, 100% of any game can be played in groups.  Soloers may have content, usually below 50%,  but most of it sucks and most of it is unrewarding, making it content not worth doing in the first place.  Whatever though, this argument doesn't apply to this game, there will NEVER be an Asian based game that is solo friendly for even 25% of the content, let alone 100%.

Won't keep me from voicing my opinion till some company decides to seriously cater to it.

 

In some ways I sympathize with the solo mindset because frankly some games have a community where the people are most definantly not worth playing with.  And you are right about most games being party orientated.  Chances are there will never be a true Solo game, more or less because they are generally on consoles without online content and are called just rpg's.  Not trying to attack you, just pointing out that the MMO does stand for M-Multiplayer-O.  It kind of goes with that mindset that parties would have a role in it.

Though with changing trends you can never tell if a true Solo game might come out, though I tend to think it will be ultimately more PvP rather than PvE.

Can't be sure if you the graphics are on par with your thinking, since they are anime-style.. but they are easily the best anime style I've seen.  Big world, definantly a good community, or at least a fair site better a great mass of the others I've tried.  It's still in Beta so updates are a given, but the GM's are open and friendly and daily events are truly daily events.  The one place where I think it fails is crafting, as I didn't like it.  As a self-termed hardcore player, you might not like that it's f2p, but as your hours are irregular, that might be to your advantage.  It's Ether Saga Online, and in my opinion easily the top five of f2p's if not number one on that list.

Well I haven't deleted it yet, but if I have to play it with my computer wide open, I can assure you no game is worth that, I just decided to put it off for a few days and play with my firewall now and then before friday.  ^^

LMAO!!

I absolutely love the pond analogy. ^^

It's especially pleasing to think that some of the people lashing about might get a cramp and drown. ^^  (Sorry, dark sense of humor just kicked in)

Ouch.. disabling my firewall.. Thanks for your help everyone. ^^  I was just curious about Aion, so if it's going to take risk my 'baby' by opening up something like my firewall, I'd just as soon uninstall and wait for the reviews to come out.  Thanks again for your prompt response. :D

Okay, I know Aion Beta isn't open until friday, but after nearly 24 hrs, the download finally finished and I've got a big button crying out to be pushed.  I get a splash screen and then an error window Gameguard Error 114, is this a serious issue I've got going here or is this because the servers aren't up and ready just yet.  Please someone with a little insight, help me out here.

Okay this thread may or may not be a very bad idea, but what the heck.

I got the idea from another thread asking whether developers actually visited this site and read the forums.  I will state right off the bat that I hope that people will follow a few set of rules so that anyone who an idea would be heard, rather than becoming an all out war over the 'right way'.

The premise is this:  Were you ever to get the chance to sit down one on one with a game designer, what would you suggest as the next big idea?

The idea behind this is that a developer opened up this thread and read the entry they would hear your opinion of the perfect game without embellishments and without rabble rousing.  This being the game that could keep you playing for the foreseeable future.

The rules:

~Please, don't try to argue someone else's idea is bad or good, this is about each individual stating their ideal vision, whether you personally agree with it or not.  And if someone does touch a nerve, good or bad, please take it to another thread where their is plenty of room  to continue the struggle.

~Please, no debate over the 'right way' of gaming.  Everyone has their own ideas and own views, this is about what one person would have to say, whether you agree with it or not.

~If you post your concept of the perfect game, try to state in full as to avoid numerous postings from one individual.

 

It is my hope that if people choose to follow these rules these forums might have something substantial to say rather than a lot of arguments and hate posts. If it doesn't work, <shrug>, at least I tried.

And you think a single tax will end that stagnation, naive is the best word for that view.

And that takes us right back to one of my earlier points, will the money get there to help me go to college, you may have used maybe, but in the current state of things, do we really need another tax when things are already bad and people are struggling.  Even if you call it a luxury tax, the simple fact is that such luxury's are at times the very things that keep people from dropping into hopelessness.

As for college, you never considered I might not want to go.  Or that maybe this world still needs people to work in factories, or cut your grass.  You certainly seem ready to talk down to such people.  You sound like you are saying 'You don't like your taxes, go to college to make more money so you can pay for them'  The simple fact is even if I did go to college there are many an industry out there where the job market sucks, there are 200 applicants for 1 position.  So I go to college put myself 50k into more debt and then I can't get anything but a minimum wage job, but I've still got more taxes to pay.  What then?

lol first of all why would i need anyone to cut my grass when im perfectly capable of doing it myself? secondly if you dont want to go to college then your not even trying to better your life what does working at a minimum wage job get you? i mean the reason i am going to college is so that i can provide for my family, and my future kids and hope they dont get the life that i did.  i want to be like hey guys i can help you out whenever you need it.  and its because i know that life is hard and everyone needs that help. but im just saying its not just about free education and free healthcare it just snowballs and does other things for the poor people.  so many aspects in this world can be bettered.  and who knows maybe some of that tax will go to putting solar panels on every house so that we dont have to worry about paying that electricity payment.  i cant remember where but there is a city in europe that the citizens actually SELL the unused energy their houses make to the city.  if we can be energy dependent and not worry about oil prices or many other things then that also helps the poor.  life isnt just about trying to survive its about living.. i want to live my life to the fullest and i want everyone to do that but the way this country is going, and the world even its just now happening.

sure i could prolly just be talking outa my ass atm im tired i went to work at 5am,, after staying up and playing video games which i know i shouldnt have but. we need to live.. as a human race we need to LIVE not just survive.

Your Naivety astonds me, if asked I would have to call myself a liberal, if forced I'd have to say I am an independent democrat.  But clearly you are too young and two wide-eyed the world to actually believe your taxes are going where they are suppose to be going.

Do I think it could work, no, because far too often I have seen my tax money go to line the pockets of others for services that I'll never get to used.  You act as if the government is the pinnacle of honesty, that every penny that goes into their pockets will go to help the people who paid it.  I will tell you for a fact that IT WON'T!  It will be wasted, one way or another and nothing will get better, if you actually read that post from our British friend, you can see chances are things will get that much worse.  And that is for a country the size of Britian, not even taking into account a country the size of the US in terms of sheer land mass.

But clearly, nothing anyone can say will ever destroy that blind faith in a failed system, so I will leave you with your wide-eyed dreams and endless optimism, because quite frankly until you've felt the cold hard lash of reality, there is no reason for you to think that someone else just might be right.
