    I hate the design mashup, pirates vs ninjas? I'll stick to League of Legends if i want that!

    I want an immersive world either fantasy/realistic/sci-fi but with setting that would rule my mind! This cocktail of styles is absolutely anti-immersive :/

     

    Basically that's how the books are (disclaimer, only read the first one, still trying to get the other ones). Basically it takes place on an online VR world where some characters are playing in a fantasy setting, others in sci-fi, others in what could be described as second life on acid and so on, the plot having to do with political conspiracies (both in the real and virtual world) and a disease aparently caught online where people end up in a coma but still appear to be online and the otherland, a kind of paralel network where people is unable to disconnect, and if they die in the virtual world, they die in the real world as well (there are paralels to the Matrix, but the first book came out several years before)

    What can men do against such reckless hate?

    Toward the end of the video, it says "Create" and what is apparently an entire zone being created.

    Does this mean players can actually create their own landmass/zone?

    That might be worth checking out if nothing else.

    It looks good, but if I know any Korean developer, it's gonna be heavily cash shop depenant or have a huge grind. OR they could completely blow my mind and make the game as amazing as it seems.

    Read the series.. A wild ride down a rabbit hole. Hope the game can match it..

    If not a typical asian grindfest, worth a try. But if it's a grindfest, graphics and story can't change the endless boredom. I see challenge in missions, fighting, battles and not in getting my epic gear.

    I think it's unfair to compare a game to the books. They are two different mediums with vastly different requirements and levels of interaction. In a book, things happen the way the authors want them to happy. A game allows much more freedom. As great as the books are, they should be considered little more than a guideline to the game.

    Part of this reminds me of Minecraft except with better graphics.

    So it's gonna be kinda like Second Life? Kinda looks like it. Not sure if that's a good thing.

    Pro logic here. So you'd pick a teen or pre-teen rated game so as not to find pedophiles?

    Mature rated games are meant for, you know, adults. No kids should be playing them and if you come up to one, feel free to report them. If anything, I'd pick a mature rated game so as to be 99% that no kids are playing them, not the other way round.

    Looks veryinteresting. i cant help but feel the game has a "second life" quality about it though. The combat looks pretty repetetive also.

    If someone is talking in general chat in a language you dont understand, chances are they're not talking to you. So chill out and stop bitching about it!

    So many mmos on the market being released

    This over-saturation will not end well

    Yea, I agree with you, but you can enjoy them too if you play it with friends. (PS: NÉZD MÁR MEG A LEVELEIDET!!!)

    it shares very little in common with SL.  you can build on your own property, and thats about the extent of it.

    this is a game first and foremost.  SL is a (largely) gameless, char progression free (as in, doesn't have it) sandbox.

    The End
    ---------------------------
    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

    Someone did not read the huge text below the video?

     

    Yes. You collect bits of data in the "internet" (killing stuff, interacting etc) and acquiring enough data of certain types allow you to create stuff of that type in your "myland". 

    In myland you do whatever you want, shape the place, explore it and expand. Its pretty much an owned planet. You build stuff, build up defenses and so on.

    Also MyLand is pretty much the metaphor for your PC. EVERY MyLand has an IP Address that is needed to enter it, which means someone might decide to take over your IP , hence where the guild combat comes into play.

    well, create your own lands? so does this mean more or less like Xyson editable terrain? or we actually create the land from 0?

    So What Now?
