I love Shadowbane and if you do, say so so a dev will get the idea and make a "New" Shadowbane!

Resurecting a long lost name for the sake of current mmo boredum. Do you want a shadowbane?

    No since we already have darkfall. Its too late.

    But id still like to see that game coming back. we need Sandbox mmorpg to take over and we need all of them. Shadow bane before an other release would just need more work to match the mechanism that we have nowadays.

    1st, full revamp of the control. I want to move with WASD.

    2nd, animation need to be done better then the way it was before.

    At last, graphics need to change.

    After all that, the game will be perfect.

     If only darkfall was third person view, first person makes some people sick to thier stomach literally

    I wish they brought that game back.

    I think one server at a reduced subscription would net decent profit.

    maybe 4.99 a month and keep one or two devs for bugs and balancing.

    And that's why no one gets breast implants, liposuction, botox and all that to keep looking young...oh wait...

    I would love to see a modern Shadowbane, especially with the classes and races it had. Add some shinier graphics and a modern control system and I'm set.

    Shadowbane was awesome, although I only found it after its relaunch back in 2008 I played a ton of it.  I would welcome a new Shadowbane, or even Ubi relaunching it with a sub fee(or selling it to another company)

     First should be fixing the bugs that never got fixed.  Even when they did bring it back the first time I crashed to desktop within five minutes.  Loaded up again and I fell through the ground.

    Make games you want to play.

    Shadowbane and Darkfall are two totally different types of games.

    I think i may be the only person to ever enjoy the combat the second i started playing the game.

    If someone did make a revamp i would want it to be iso view with point to click movement.

    Shadowbane for me felt like a true mmo, darkfall is like this half baked Half life fantasy mod with a ton of skill grinding.

    its not the same.

    Shadowbane was one of the best PVP MMO's ever released next to pre-toa Dark Age of Cameltoe, EVE, Pre-Trammel UO, etc..

  • VirusDancerVirusDancer Brandon, FLMember UncommonPosts: 3,649

    Blizzard, are you listening - you idea stealing conglomerate nightmare?

    FFA PvP - player cities - etc.

    Oh wel... funny how World of Warcraft could have actually been World of Warcraft instead of Fisher Price's World of Hugcraft...

    I miss the MMORPG genre. Will a developer ever make one again?

    Has anyone tried to contact those bastard devs that own SB to see if they would reopen one server in the corner of some dusty office for us?

    I miss this freaking game...

    Maybe if someone petitioned? or someone dropped them a line about reduced sub prices or even f2p with ADs.

    Shit guys we gotta do something i wanna play this again.

    What's so terrible about it? the fact that it's in alpha stage and they are trying to get everything put in? They just did an OR update restructuring all the db code. This EMU will do good imo.

    Barffail is not even in the same league as Shadowbane.

    Shadowbane 2 with upgraded graphics, UI would rock the house.

    Shadowbane was Epic and Noteworthy.

     

    Play to Crush.

    And Play to Crush we did.

    Long live MoC.

    SWG emu is extremely unstable, completely void of anything to do other than duel (when i tried it).

    It was a waste of my time.

    I havent tried the SBEmu but honestly they havent really had a lot of time to work with it.

    As someone that played Shadowbane since release, I second the sentiment... Please bring Shadowbane (or a game like it) back!!!!

    A man is his own easiest dupe, for what he wishes to be true he generally believes to be true...

     There are no Shadowbane devs.  Everyone who had anything to do with the game has moved on. Ubisoft owns the corpse.

    FFA PVP WITH  REPROCUSSIONS FOR THE WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Shadowbane will always hold a place in my mmo experiences.

    If only it wasnt laggy as heck when it first came out maybe it would have been more of an icon......but it jsut couldnt handle 100's on screen fighting at once when it was released.

    Though the though has crossed my mind on why there is no talk of making a new one, it had such character development and i remember the rush of ganking someone or getting ganked while camping runemasters <sigh>< there just isnt any thrill in pvp anymore it seems.

    SB Emulator under development. ;)

    I was there in 2003 - it was an epic PvP journey! :)

    It's strange that a company like Ubisoft don't consider

    a new version of Shadowbane with updated graphic.

    Shadowbane was the best game I've ever played.. and I've been a gamer for 15 years.

    If I was a millionaire, I'd buy the rights from Ubisoft and hire me some talent under the direction of Ashen, and redo the game exactly as it was, but with a new engine.

    Wouldn't care if it wasn't profitable either.
