Got to get the information somewhere.. lol

Subreddit activity being a good way to measure MMO populations is one of the funniest things I have heard in a while.  However, I don't doubt AA is behind WoW at the moment, but that won't last more than a month.

I remember when Warhammer Online was #2 as well as Star Wars the Old Republic was treading WoW.

Goes to show you there is a market for players that are looking for that mmo they can call home.

 

The Old Republic really isn't doing that bad these days.

 

There is some information in this article.

I agree with you about Asheron's Call. It is without a doubt the best MMORPG ever made. I disagree about it not being a success though. It is considered one of the big three if I remember correctly. The big three were Everquest, Ultima Online, and Asheron's Call until after Dark Age of Camelot was released.

 

The problem with MMORPGs today is the popularity Everquest got by being first to market (3D MMO) due to Asheron's Call being delayed by two years. What that did was prompt many developers to not follow in Ultima Online or Asheron's Calls footsteps but to instead try to be like Everquest, which was evident in DAoC and later in World of Warcraft. DAoC was a good game, but who can really argue that it wasn't a EQ clone for people who enjoyed siege PvP? The same could be said of WoW, except for it was more like a EQ lite.

 

Seeing the success of WoW prompted more and more developers to be like WoW, which in reality is just being more like EQ. Nobody has really innovated since the big three. They were all very unique and fun games, and they each appealed to a vastly different audience of MMORPG players. Pretty much all MMOs developed today aim for the same audience, the EQ type players.

 

Maybe one day a developer will truly innovate and there will be another game like Asheron's Call. A game that is not afraid to take a chance and be different. The reason those early games were so different and unique is because they didn't have anything to follow, and they were better games for it. Developers need to stop looking at other games and just develop something unique.

 

If anyone out there knows of a spiritual successor to AC that I somehow missed or has come out since I posted this, make sure to message me and tell me about it.

 

I played on Leafcull from 1999 to 2003. Between late 2001 and 2003 I went back and forth between AC and DAoC. I went to DAoC for a while and missed AC and my friends and went back. I played up until I got into WoW beta in March of 2003. I tried a couple times over the years to go back to AC, but it just never feels the same. I know animations and graphics shouldn't be that important, but it just looks so dated these days. If they released the game today with modern graphics and a few tweaks to systems to make them more modern, I would buy it up in a heartbeat.

 

I added two more videos for any who are interested. 

 

I agree about story being more important depending on type of gameplay. Although, Asheron's Call was one of my favorite games ever made and had a lot of sandbox elements and a decent amount of story and lore. It wasn't told like stories are in games today, but it was there nonetheless.

From what I hear the game gets a lot better once more of the sandbox like elements come into play. There are a lot of cutscenes in the early levels, but you can always skip the cutscenes or even questing all together if you prefer. I have heard of some people getting to max level without questing at all.

No problem by the way, I am glad it was helpful.

So are these cutscenes accompanied throughout the level 1-30 tutorial quest phase?

 

Unfortunately, I haven't got far enough to say whether they are or not, but maybe someone else will see your question and chime in.

I have a couple videos up on my Youtube channel, Apex Gaming. I will be adding more videos tomorrow. The videos were recorded at max settings, 1080p, and a very high bitrate to try to capture the best quality possible. The videos are straight gameplay with no talking over the in game sound. Make sure to watch at 1080p and full screen.

 

If you enjoy the videos please leave a like or subscribe. Thanks.

I have always pronounced ArcheAge as Ark-Age, personally.

98% of the people playing ESO right now will be playing Wildstar in less than 2 months.

 

If you can't wait that long, then you have no life.  Time to go and get a life.  

 

 

I beta tested Wildstar not that long ago, and the game is absolute garbage imo. I wouldn't touch it again if they paid me to. ESO on the other hand, I am enjoying a lot.

Anyone have any idea why I would be getting this? I saw that account management was down for maintenance. Would this have anything to do with that?

I already pre-purchased the DDE of GW2 and played in the first BWE. It was pretty fun, but I want to give Tera a shot as well. I am going to pick up the DCE later today.

@hikaru77 - I don't think we are going to experience the problems WAR had here. It is a similar system but a completely new game. They have also went out of their way to fix a lot of the problems with RvR.


Great article. I was hoping for more footage but I understand it was probably hard to record with the client not being fully optimized etc.

This post might be right on time.

The game looks great, and will be playable across many systems at launch (which was their goal).

 

Examples:

 

http://www.swtor.com/media/screens/zabrak-0

 

http://www.swtor.com/media/screens/jedi-knight-sentinel

 

etc

 

You may have had a minor arguement when they released the first couple screenshots of the game, such as the force choke screenshot with the gigantic lightsaber, but the graphics have changed a ton since the TOR website went up. They are very detailed, and there are many more examples of it if you look for them.

 

 

 

" PvP fans will use the option to turn voice-overs into quest text. They will rush through to endgame in order to have the best gear and skills for pvp. BW knows this. "

 

Not true at all. I am a dedicated PvP player but I plan to really enjoy the story in TOR. Not to mention I am a huge fan of single player RPGs as well. By your logic, anyone who likes PvP really doesn't even like gaming. lol

It probably would have been a good game, considering who was developing it.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/True_Fantasy_Live_Online

 

True Fantasy Live Online was an MMORPG in development by Level-5 for Microsoft's Xbox video game console. After a long and troubled development cycle that lasted close to two years, the game was cancelled on June 2, 2004. The game was to take place in a massive fantasy setting where up to 3,000 users, each with their own fully customizable character, could adventure around with each other fighting monsters and collecting various items.

[edit] Cancellation

Often cited as one of the most disappointing project cancellations of recent years, True Fantasy Live Online was highly anticipated almost right from the moment it was announced in 2002, and was touted as one of the premier titles for the Xbox and its Xbox Live online service in Japan.[citation needed] Yet despite being "fully playable" and near completion according to Microsoft around the time of its cancellation, the title's development was littered with complications from the very beginning. One such problem was Level-5's inexperience with online network coding and their inability to properly implement voice chat compatibility into the game. It was a feature never before implemented on such a large scale in an MMORPG; however, Microsoft was very adamant on its inclusion, as it was a key feature to their Xbox Live service.

Relations between the two companies soon began to spiral out of control as Level-5 struggled to meet the demands required by Microsoft, who in turn grew frustrated at the lack of progress being made on the game. After an extremely short and rather underwhelming showing at the Tokyo Game Show in 2003, True Fantasy Live Online was quietly delayed from its initial Fall 2003 release into 2004. From then, little was seen or heard about from the title, and after a surprising absence during the year's E3 convention, it was officially cancelled by Microsoft on June 2.

In the months following, Level-5 President and CEO Akihiro Hino stated in a Japanese interview that the poor relations between his company and Microsoft, partially due to the latter's inexperience in dealing with Japanese developers, was one of the major reasons behind True Fantasy Live Online's cancellation. He also heavily implied that the two companies did not part amicably.

In an interview in 2008, the CEO Akihiro Hino stated he still has many ideas for True Fantasy Live Online, and would personally like to work on the game. Whether or not the game does come back into development has yet to be seen.[1]

In a July 2008 interview with edge-online.com, Shane Kim, former general manager of Microsoft Game Studios spoke in regards to failed Microsoft MMORPG projects (including Marvel Universe Online, and True Fantasy Live Online). While acknowledging that the cancellations were the right thing to do at the time, Shane Kim also felt that such games could be successful on the Xbox 360 platform.[2]

" APB had great customization and look what happened to that game. Great character customization must not be that important to players. "

 

That would be a true statement though. Great character customization is not that important. Look at the games with the best customization, all failures in the western market. Aion? APB? etc.

 

Don't get me wrong, having some customization is great, but being able to move your nose 1 mm up or down or being able to make yourself super short just to be obnoxious is just completely unecessary.

Yes, I am sure marketing at Bioware has NOTHING to do with it, right?
