    A Wuxia mmo, I'm there, anything is better than tired ass Euro Fantasy. If I see one more elf  or dwarf I am going to seriously hurt someone. And to those that think that nobody here would like this. Please speak for yourselves, I love kung fu movies, especially the Wuxia ones. They are basically Chinese superhero movies with some history mixed in.

    Though I still wish it was more like Zu Warriors instead of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, but I'm still going to be all over this game day one.

    There are alot of kung fu movie fans here in the states, so please speak for yourself. And I am no teenager I am 35. Not everyone wants to keep playing tired rehashes of Lord of the Rings/Dungeons and Dragons. Sorry but some of us gaming nerds actually like to diversify our tastes and not limit ourselves to the same thing over and over again.

    Why this time is different D&D with orange flavor, which makes it sooo much different from lemon flavored D&D! And next years grape flavored D&D is in NO way the same as the other two, why? Because *gasp* it has dynamic events and the elves are made from plants, and the gnomes really aren't gnomes, they are called Ashuras/Kokris/etc.

    And in two years kids look out for pink lemonade D&D, which is different! Because the Dwarves are called Sowens and are in no way the same as normal Dwarves! The Sowens dont use hammer to mine they use baseball bats, with a hammer like end. So see that is in no way the same as a dwarf!

    See how original and diverse we are with our themes!

    *rolls eyes

     



    Calm down mang, no need to get so defensive about your video game tastes. I'm fairly sure only one person in the thread said anything about the theme being for the younger generation. The rest just don't like it (including me).

    The draw to fantasy/sci-fi MMOGs is due to the separation from reality it engenders. A fighting game such as this is extremely close to reality, so it's doubtful as many people will play it. That isn't to say nobody will like it, but it'll be slower on the uptake simply because it isn't fantasy or sci-fi.

    Sarcasm is not a crime!

    Gpot!!! ha prepare your wallet son!

     

    The game doesn't look "last gen" for sure. But i must admit the features presented are great. And the other videos are also good, playing go in a minigame humm i could be tempted.

    I'm surprised at people citing the game's theme and setting as a "con" or a negative.

     

    I guess good ol' prejudice and xenophobia are still very much alive. Sad. 

     

    The game looks great; any game that aims to break the current mold gets points, for me.

    That video trailer the OP shared certainly did pique my interests, but then I looked a bit deeper to check out other features and when I saw what the combat was like, my interest disappeared. I love the freedom & mobility you have when traversing the terrain, so why isn't any of that translated to the combat. In the end it's just the same tab-target, stand in place and beat on each other until one falls over. Some may like that but after seeing how much freedom & mobility I'll get with the Guild Wars 2 combat, I just can't see myself gettin excited to play a game like Age of Wulin.

    Strangely enough, this video of China Joy's at some Asian gaming expo was connected to yours.

    Take a look at this video, jump to 10:00. I think the combat is really great and unique, it's not exactly the same as other tab-based games.

    whoa.. their devs are claiming with their battle system, macros and cheats won't work, help or be rendered useless?


    I think they just lost interest from probably 75% of the PvP market with that statement :P

    Ehh? i myself dislike asian themed MMORPGS, what has this got anything to do with prejudice and xenophobic? my brother dislike sci-fi themed MMOS, is he being prejudiced to aliens?

    But then again, i haven't read a post form you which is not full of over reactions and hyperbolas.

    Going by CB alone, spamming skills or rotating same skills again and again will only get you killed in pvp and against harder pve elements. The secret to win lies in trying to predict what opponent does, recognize what he is doing and devising or choosing a correct course of action on the spot.

    Spamming the same shit usually means that the enemy player will see a pattern in your attack and devise a strategy that pretty much counters everything you spam and manages to kill you :)

    To go by the allusions the devs are using - spamming same skills over and over again equals as if you would only throw scissors in every rock,paper, scissors match :)

    In a sense they want to simulate on how the so called "real" martial arts battles happen.

    Not much different from what I just said. Sure it may not be like all the other MMO combat systems, but it's so called "rock, paper, scissors" system still doesn't promote freedom & mobility. And that's my major gripe with MMO combat. That and I always feel that I died in such an unfair manner (like their class having an unfair advantage over mine). The combat is still about taking turns beating on each other and not in a good way.

    Yea i am waiting on this game for some time now.

     

    only it will be lauched on gpotato.eu first (i live in eu so fine by me) but gpotato sucks and can easily ruin a good game into pieces with their shitty servers

    Why do you dislike them? If you dislike something simply because of it's foreign theme, then yes that makes you a xenophobe. Nothing wrong in that. But let's not be stupidly politically correct here. These days people often pass off their prejudices as "preference" but at the end of the day, it is a still a prejudice no matter how people try to pretty it up. 

     

    Interesting that you took my comment (which was not aimed at solely you) to such heart. Did I touch on a sore spot or what? You that afraid to look like someone who harbours a prejudice? 

     

    I don't know what YOU said; the posts I read said, "can't get into Asian themed MMO" or something of that effect. That clearly marks the person as being close-minded against whatever they're normally used to and suggests a lack of worldly maturity. 

     

    Now if they had said, "I can't get into it because Asian MMOs are grindfests and I dislike grinds" - that wouldn't have made them prejudiced. 

     

    Your "brother" comparison is inane, and irrelevant and gives me insight to your thought process - which is obviously muddled. Way to inappropriately lighten relevant issues of closet prejudice. 

    Sci-fi is incidentally not my thing, but I know that EvE is a great game. I would love to play it. And I don't think it's a "con" that it is sci-fi themed. Which was the point of my original post that you jumped upon. You probably won't understand it, but if you have an aiota of comprehension skills, you will see what I am saying.  

    But then again, i haven't read a post form you which is not full of over reactions and hyperbolas.

    It is "hyperbole" not "hyperbola". The latter is a type of curve on a plane. 

    Also, please point out whatever post I have made that is a "hyperbola". Just because I don't fawn over a generic, uninspired, last-generation game like SWTOR doesn't make my posts an exaggeration. 

     

    "Never argue with a fool; onlookers may not be able to tell the difference."

    The few positive aspects of this game are drowned by the tons of bad ones.

    I don't like to play in an all-themed asian world. That to me is like they are only centered around the asian market. Western companies make their games appealing to everyone with mythological themes from all over the world.

    I am from Sweden, and I would not play a game where everyone is using a viking axe either. There needs to be diversity for me to like a game. To me, they are proud of their culture, which is okay, but it's mostly a game for asians that have grown up with that culture.

    Oh and, btw, I don't like to play total war games either so I guess I just prefer fantasy and sci-fi.

  • NBlitzNBlitz ZwollePosts: 1,904Member

    I saw a couple of threads before this one and they were not getting the attention they "imho" deserved.

    Having seen the title I knew which game was being referred to but with the difference that it will gather attention, both positive and negative. I thought "leave it to Teala to spark a discussion".

    I'm looking forward to this title. I don't give a shit if it's gPotato or whoever. Every company has to keep proving itself with each title it publishes/releases. I'm keeping my fingers crossed gPotato doesn't screw the pooch with Age of Wulin and redeems itself in the eyes of those who feel the company wronged them.
