    You also nich the game from the start. Especially if its forced PvP.  Lets see how this works out.

    Alright, I'm confuse on the word "nich" ahha I've heard it alot but wtf does it mean :P

    It means that its attractive to only a smaller number of the player base.   Forced PvP doesn't go over nearly as well in the west, as it does in Asia.

    can't wait to see it perform!

    I'm sure the Chinese studio buying them out had something to do with the microtransaction bent, as Asian games rarely adopt the subscription model anymore.

    Making a PvP game fully cash shop based and still retaining the balance between the rich and poor is challenging to say the least, but it is doable. 

    Don't throw the baby out with the bath water just yet.  If nothing else, they'll probably make a subscription based cash "item" that will even the balance.

    Well,  there could be multiple world, similar to Wow atm. Where some are full pvp and other are just "area" pvp or even instaced pvp... It's a ~3rdPS so it fit extremely well in pvp ahha :)

    A shooter?! Blah.... zero interest.

    I usually dont get hyped by new MMO announcements but this looks awesome!

    Finally a new MMO to look forward to, maybe there wil be atleast 1 intersting MMO coming out in 2011 :)

    If WoW = The Beatles
    and WAR = Led Zeppelin
    Then LotrO = Pink Floyd

    I'm sorry, but the concept of a PVE-based shooter sounds utterly unappealing to me. In fact, that would be the ultimate niche: Shooters are usually PVP-based games by tradition.

    That gameplay video looks really good to me, though I have to say MT in a competitive game does sound potentially disastrous.

    god.   i sure hope it has no RPG elements.

    please god, let it have no RPG nonsense hampering and crapping up the gameplay.

    i don't expect to like Darkfall, altho i may like it MORE than other MMOs. i know it is gonna have a very frustrating level of grind to it, even if its significantly less than most. waiting for a pure FAST action virtual world. dice rolling & character levels (even "skills") IN COMBAT should have never carried over from pencil & paper to a computer that can reasonably model 3D spaces and objects

    Alot of similarities to GA.

    Will keep an eye on it.

    being a shooter (sure HOPE its just a shooter) has nothing to do with how massively multiplayer (or not) it will be.

    not aware of Planetside?  altho IMO, thats a poor shooter (even moreso, poor, extremely unimmersive "world"), it still is a shooter.  with unfortunate RPG elements strapped on.

     

    yeah yeah, somebody start up a proper MMOShooter site so the majority of people here won't be so confused by all the action MMOs that are coming out and on the way.   i know its hard to break things down into seperate parts for most people.

    The End

    Wow I love how something comes out of the wood that is unique and interesting.

    Original graphics/art direction, love the tight designs of the mining instrument and it being carried through to the final town. The gameplay was exceptional, sorry but how can you compare this to Global Agenda.

    If this is the first glimpse of this game and it looks exceptional fine tuned and finished then I trust Red 5 to truly impress.

     

    Sic!

    the only question i care about is:

    how do they plan to counter helios? no pvp?

    To me this looks like what Global Agenda should have been at Launch. Can`t wait to get my hands on it.

    What a let down.  A team based shooter as if there are not enough of them already.  I would not touch this game with a 10 foot pole.  Microtransactions will kill it, guarenteed.

  • MandaloreMandalore ObernkirchenPosts: 79Member Uncommon

    Wow - they made a Borderlands Online .... I think I will wait for the realy MMO Version of Borderlands (and I am sure that they working on such a game ;)).

    It looks really like a Borderlands Clone. The graphics, the UI - the items with this little colored line over it ... *g*

    Impressive - not ^^

    OMG an orginal looking MMO with a persistant world, objective oriented gameplay, where pve has a point ?! I want see more of this.

    I may actually forgive them microtransactons if it is any close to Tribes massive pvp experience and has some deepth.

  • revslaverevslave ..., NYPosts: 154Member Uncommon

    Well it looks interesting, i really like the art style of the game , as long as they do not turn it into some item utilization cluster fuck like alot of the traditional mmo's out now i will be very happy.

    that looked very well done. And even if its shallow, so what - its f2p. Microtransactions wont kill it, it will make playable for most people who would otherwise not be inclined to pay a sub for a game like this. When I play a shooter with a monthly fee I am thinking "why should I continue paying for this when I can play Teamfortress2 for free?" Looking at you APB.

     

    *edit: oh and the guy right above me has the exact same join date and nearly the same number of posts as me. Far-out man.

    Just because they describe something that resembles an MMO dosen't make it one.  Star Trek Online claims to be an MMO but everyone who plays it knows that it is a single person shooter most of the time and far from being an MMO, well atleast in the real world.

    looks nice sounds nice, but all new games are the best thing since sliced bread until they are released, plus shooter type mmo's do not have good track record, will have to wait and see, I will most likely give it a look at least..
