    Hmm not very good graphics really.Looks like a cartoon but lets see how the gameplay handles.

    uhhhh u do know that it uses the same engine as lineage2 right?

    I knew that...but I don't know if you were asking too poor looking graphics...well the folks who gave it to stratics apparently said that its just a quick little video....obviously not I am going to rely upon my knowledge of the unreal engine..combine with what I see and know that it is going to look great....

    They really should have let UO2 finish.If you ever seen that game screenshots you would be amazed.

    It was made in 2000 for a early 2001 release and was all set by end of 2000 for a beta run.

    Amazes me that they held back that game purely because they wanted to keep UO going without competition.

    I always thought that was stupid because those that love their castles and houses and rares in UO would never leave for UO2 or any game for that matter.

    Those that want adventure would go to another mmrpg when tired of UO,so all they succeeded in doing was boost EQ numbers and then DAoC numbers(remember in 2000 UO was ahead of EQ in number of subscribers now EQ is nearly double).

    Anyhow this game will probabaly not even make it out before WoW talk less of EQ2 or horizons.

    Would only play it if its a good game not because it has the ultima logo on it.Too many new MMO out there to choose now and by xmas it will be spoilt for choice.

    i would have to agree with you hercules the "draphics" do seem pretty crap but the graphics look nice and smooth image

    who cares about graphics it the gameplay that matters.Gonna have ta give it a shot when it comes out.

  • herculeshercules lancashire,blackpoolPosts: 4,797Member Uncommon

    Ah error noted and corrected in spelling.

    Well yes graphics is not everything if i was to rate a game over 10 graphics will be 2.

    2 to customer service,4 to gameplay,2 to bugs/connections.

    Question is what can ultima offer us nowadays?

    Housing?Well DAoC have houses now which blow UO houses away,same for SWG houses,EQ2 plans on houses.

    So really that does not appeal to me now.After playing less then 2 weeks in SWG i got a house that makes UO castles look like huts.

    Crafting?Yes be intresting to see what they do with this but they have to beat the crafting system in SWG(which was designed by same folks that made UO crafting) and considering all the upcoming MMRPG are looking closely at crafting I wonder what they can make to better it.

    All I am saying that for me it will be just another mmprg whereas in 2001 if UO2 came out I would have bought it simply for been UO  but not now.

    Just face facts, UOX is just going to be another wash rinse repeat MMOG like all the other recent titles.

    My software never has bugs. It just develops random features.
    Why doesn't DOS ever say "EXCELLENT command or filename!"

    Customer: "How fast will my COM ports go?"
    Tech Support: "How hard can you throw your computer?"

    We shall see after Friday hopefully. I am optimistic here though. I still like some of the aspects of UO over other games.

    Looking for some free hardcore battle action? Hook up on EverWars!

    I really am very sorry, but has anyone ever heard of Lord British or the game Tabula Rasa?


  • DjinDjin New London, CTPosts: 3,263Member
    Lord British and Lord Blackthorn are the two "main" people in Ultima.  Lord British is the maker of Ultima too...

    Think lord british got the boot a while ago.

    About same time they canned UO2 so might be related since he was strongly behind the UO2 project.

    Can't wait for feedback on this game
