    Why would they compete against Wildstar,a game that appears to be MUCH more popular over here.Sad thing is Blade was using a superior game engine but like so many others,they did not put the effort into the game.Wildstar is using a pile of junk engine,typical of former Blizzard staff,decent game design/content but again a half ass effort that could have gone much further.

    I don't want to look at textures that have been done better 20 years ago,i don't want to see cartoon graphics,i like to have at least a decent sense of seriousness in my game but yes some comical or offbeat presentation is ok.

    Dance game?Well seems to be a small trend going that direction and has shown tidbits in the past.Wow copied the emote dance from Alize Jacotey,FFXi introduced the Dancer class with emotes and almost every game has tons of players doing dance emotes,so i would hardly mock it,although it is definitely not my cup of tea.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    You may not be aware, but cartoon graphics age far better than 'real' ones. Why do you think WoW lasted so many years? And.. for all the fantasy elements, you're more likely to expand your horizon of possibilities with a cartoon look, than something that is too close to realism.

    This thread is totally legit.  Sources of mine have told me that we actually have 2 suns.  The other sun is always on the other side of the planet though.....where my sources are.

    I'm sure people in the west would far rather play a dance MMO than blade and soul  ... not image

    Wait, it all makes sense now...

     

    Ghostcrawler is leaving Blizzard to bring the long-promised Dance Studio to fruition at NCSoft!

    Yes that just what we need, over weight middle aged men dancing around there apartments at 4am high on coke'a'cola and chettos & chips bust'n some moves, that's right we don't need blades and boobs just give us the dance moves, ( face palming myself as I type!)image

    Well this new MMO better be trinity based with healing via  the medium of interpretative dance or I'm out.

    I would not put this past them.  I have not even seen any updates for its release in Japan even. Really sad i was kind of looking forward to playing this for a month or so.  They also missed a really nice clear launch window.  Now if they release they are going up against some big names,  ESO especially.

    They just launched it in China. They obviously didn't miss a launch window.

    Don't even worry about NCSoft or NCWest or whatever the heck they call themselves.

    Blade and Soul launched in Korea some time ago and is now in open beta in China, with no IP block anymore; I myself have been playing since OB opened on the 28th.  They haven't missed any sort of launch window; the game is loaded with Eastern players and I have seen with my own two eyes tons of Western players in game.  I know I don't give a rat's behind about NCWest; their BnS English website hasn't updated in God knows how long.  Anything they claim on it about localization and all that jazz is nothing but PR-speak, the type of drivel they drone on about Gw 2 and Lord knows what else.  I don't know that much of anything NC claims is true anymore.

    I say that because at some point, hopefully fairly soon, someone will release an English patch for the Cn version of BnS and at that point I will just stick with playing it.  We've been waiting an eternity for news on an English version to be released and NC has done nothing.  TenCent has done a phenomenal job with the Chinese version; even in OB, and playing across oceans, it runs like a top and is a lot of fun, period. 

    And why they would be worried about ESO is beyond me, honestly.  Oriential action-based game versus ES-based semi-MMO is like apples and oranges; besides, ESO is most likely looking more for TES series fans than anything and those people are highly unlikely to play BnS even if it does release in the West some time this century (and that looks doubtful).

    Point being, there are 2 Eastern versions of this game that can be played by virtually anyone here in the West.  I believe the Korean version has been at least semi-patched to English but there are differences in the Chinese version.  Still, it is wide open now and I don't think anyone with much sense or gaming experience is going to put a whole lot of faith into anything NCSoft propagates because it's probably crap.
