    That's what you call a cinematic! It looks amazing, really interested in this game in general.

    These kind of cinematics make me wish they would make a film as well as an mmo

    I dunno, a film generally needs a plot.  What the hell was going on there?

    Please just translate this thing and release in the west!!!

    I still think that CGI intros are a gigantic waste of money. If a product is superb, it will not need such marketing tools.

     

    I watched the CGI. I have no idea what was going on in there.

    What is going on in the trailer? who are the people? why are they fighting? where are they going?

    I'm eager for this game coming in english in EU / US but i allways hated those stupid manga-ish faces and idiotic exagerations of "hate" and overplayed defiance in face lines koreans like to put in their characters, thinking it makes them look "manly" when these facial expressions are pathetic and childish at best.

    Wasted efforts, if they don't start translating and targeting the western markets now aswell.

    I do not really care why, who or where going.

     

    Someone wants a fight? works for me

    It was nice, but I would rather see cut scenes use in-game graphics than pre-rendered CG. I've always hated false advertising when it comes to box art and CG cut scenes.

    These toons are way too emo looking.  Looks like they would have trouble walking to the corner store in my neighberhood. A little more grit please.

    You know this game was developed in Korea not the slums of New York right?

    I look forward to the game and hope it's finally the sandbox mmo I've been waiting for...but CGIs don't ever impress me. Ingame footage in trailers is what sells an mmorpg for me.

    Just my preference I guess.  Hard to play a hardbitten and weathered warrior if you look like you might start crying at any moment.

    Hah that made me lol

    There is some hope - I really liked the character models for humans in TERA for example, that was/is a Korean made MMO and the males could look either very emo or quite "hardbitten" and rough.

    I hope AA has a really great character customization system that allows you to make more than just emo tweens.

    Ok now, wheres the explanation for the plot of this video?

    "It has potential"
    -Second most used phrase on existence
    "It sucks"
    -Most used phrase on existence

    All i see is:

    1) A group of Adventurers found something time ago.

    2) Some time later, 3 of them fight for something (to get what they found?), and the girl use her power to move her people to protect them.

    I don't know the plot of ArcheAge, but this is what i see.

    The game will not look that good if it is CGI cinematic. I would like better if they used in-game graphics for cinematics. Blizzard makes great cinematics, remember the D3 intro movie? But the game looks totally different.

     

    Would like to see actual in game footage not this canned video.
