I've played the Korean version of the game. It's trash. It sells blood, boobs, and grind. Combat system is okay, seems like the only thing I can compare it to is an updated version of cabal with jumping and kung-fu style combat but otherwise it doesn't have any real substance no real depth, and it looks like its a third person combat game but its secretly tab targeting. The game guides your skills to enemies so once you lock on you cant miss.

Addressing the combat:

It only tab targets in the sense that the closest player within a 45 to 60 degree cone will be hit.... So unless your fighting training dummies in the starter city gl relying on that. Next time your angry and decide to bash a game you supposedly played get your mechanics right. And of course the failure to mention counter attacking incoming attacks, try doing that without facing them.

now granted if you hit shift+f2 you can click on your enemy and lock on, but if you turn or he runs around you beyond that field of vision previously mentioned you loose him.

I think the name of this game is corny.

It reminds me of tough guy names from the 80s. Blade and Soul, Laser Wolf, Fire and Ice, and all the other American Gladiator tv show goofy names.

That took away all interest I had in the title.  But I could be wrong.

It's true that this game does have some instances  but its not like Vindictus where towns are lobbies. You do actually explore areas with other players and do the quests available there.  I've tried both games and I can say they are nothing like each other when it comes to how you progress through the game.

Why hype something that is 6-8 months away.

Let's see when the NA/EU closed beta starts in the future.

NCSoft should push this game out before Trion releases Archeage.

If these games come out neck and neck B&S won't even stand a chance.

This said, if B&S is F2P/B2P it'll do just fine, as a subscription game I can't gurantee anything :p

Not to much hype I've seen really, specially on sites like this that have a big xenophobia towards eastern games. I'm not one to believe much in hype but the game does by far deserve it given hype remaining in existance. Might be another Aion of sorts were its a massive success in the East and quickly dismissed in the west.

One of the few reasons why I will try this game is because it has a subscription. Pretty tired of the f2p community as it is.

There was a whole crapton of hype when the game was first announced. It looks absolutely incredible. For me and im sure others once we found out there was a subscription the hype was easily doused out.

I still think it looks incredible but i can definitely wait and see if i think its something id want to subscribe to and i dont think it will be. I would very likely play the first month and such cuz it does look great but i wouldnt expect to continue paying for it mostly because theres so many similar games that are free to play.

And now with Tera being free to play theres less of a reason to want to pay for a sub.

It really depends on the amount of content they can offer.

Hype is from:

 

Girls with big boobs in lingerie

Action style RPG in a 3D MMO world

Graphics

 

I'm interested in this game, but I can see it taking another year and a half to be released.  By that time, I probably won't be nearly as interested.  There are some other options coming out soon that I plan on trying, more than likely one of them will hook me and I will forget about this game more or less.

I can tell you that the graphics are stunning and gameplay is great and the story is intriguing! Definetly worth a try, cant really say about content thou as i have only played for a few hrs and the fact that its sub- based just makes me want it more!

The game looks pretty good. People are always so upset with companies when they shut down a game. Name a company that never shuts down games that aren't doing too well? SOE does it, EA does it, all the F2P korean companies do it, Ncsoft does it. Anyways, the gameplay looks fast paced enough to make me want to keep playing, and from what I've heard it is pretty cool.

The B&S english website doesn't say that it's going to be subscription type. Has there been new info that it will be pay to play?

There used to be more hype, I think people realized that with all the other games out that look similar and probably play even more similarly, it's not a huge deal.  At least, that's what I've come to think anyway.  It's another "shiny" Korean button masher.  I've already got TERA, RaiderZ, and Dragon Nest on my pc.. I don't care about B&S anymore.
