Tabula Rasa Anyone Remember It?

RenoakuRenoaku Member Posts: 1,210 Uncommon

Seriously how many people remember this game and would actually like to play it again maybe on a harder dificulty than what the game offered previously add in more customization options etc.

After Earth Rise was released I saw this game as a Failure as it is not even talked about anymore and I hear it closed down although the site is still there and the game itself wouldn't even play on my computer correctly. But Anyways I saw similar things between the two games they just feel the same way like the enviorment although Earth Rise VS Tabula Rasa, I would say that Tabula Rasa was way better.

I wonder if this game will ever come back to the market as a F2P title or something and a bit improved. What ever happend to the code that was being used on the servers to run the game I wonder if it or another game siliar to this game will ever be released again without becomming a Pay 2 Win title.

Would anyone actually like to play this game again?

    I was there at release and wasn't there very long.  Garbage as far I am concerned.

    Yes I agree, and Auto assault was one I like as well, but was wasted

     

     

    Richard Garret won the lawsuit about Tabula Rasa, just wiki his name. The game was not made from the way he wanted it to be made from what I understood

    I would much rather play AutoAssault or a remake of it. Causing mayhem in that was always fun. If there was something like a Red Faction Guerrilla with MP co-op that would be a blast too.

    Tabula Rasa in the form it was released in was very bland. The game wasn't much fun with the changes that were forced by NCsoft. It didn't make for a very good MMO either. The content was very dry linear, maps weren't very open and weren't seamless. Combat was dull and much to simplistic for a shooter or MMO. I'd never play it again even if it was F2P.


    However, I wished I could have seen what the original plan Garriott had for TB it sounded more intriguing than the result


    Now I wish I could have unseen it

    Haha, yeah that was lame. And when TB came out it was just... boring. Didn't want to play it past the first day. No hook.

    Richard Garriot is a one hit wonder.

    Yes Auto Assault too wouldn't be bad except a remake higher end graphics, more customizations and how about no classes anyone can change classes at any time but like has to level them up manually similar to rift.

    loved it, miss it dearly, there was an emulated server by RG himself but recently closed down due to some lawsuits... however it will be back some day in some flavor.

    It was quite amazing that they actually managed to mess a game with so much potential up so bad. It was like they went for a failure from the beginning (thoughI know they probably worked hard on it).

    Lack of leadership must have been the problem because you can't make such a bad game without bad leaders.

    If it ain't dead you're not pressing 2 hard enough.

    Exactly

    Gameplay was way ahead of its time.

    But sad lack of content and many features missing. Coupled with total determination of NC sof to kill the game outright.

    Destroyed it :(

    TR was a good game. Very good actually. Never understood why they shut it down.

    The only thing I remember of that is when the title was changed to Richard Garriot's Tabula Rasa.    lol  the ego.

    Tabula Rasa....I wouldn't play it to be honest. I feel as though it got what it deserved.

    It's funny how games now days are trumpeting their "Dynamic Events" as something new, in many ways that was the basis of Tabula Rasa. 

    I found the game refreshing at the time.

    I loved the UI

    I enjoyed the leveling tree (Not having to decide right away what to specialize in)

    I liked the lack of aggro range (If you could see a mob, they could see you)

    I didn't mind the lack of PVP (But the game would have been interesting if you could haveplayed the Bane)

    Overall I would play it again if I had the chance.

    i played it, it's why i smile every time someone claims that the no-target-gameplay is something new. It had potential but it didn't have much travel options and the places were HUGE which killed it for me. also, using guns to kill everything was a tad too close to an FPS game title for me. Those are boring to me, stand there and shoot, reload, stand there and shoot reload, throw a grenade occasionally in an AOE, use an AOE fast shooter spread attack when aliens start zerging you all of a sudden,

    Enjoyed Tabula Rasa for the first 20 levels, after that it became repetitive and redundant.

    What I did not like also was the Copy approach the world had, I think it is called sharding something like that where you could be in ID A B or C copy of the world. This made it seem so artificial...

    I liked the UI however and the smooth targeting they had with a nice attempt of Cover.

    I tried Tabula Rasa in beta and release, but I went back to PlanetSide,  If I would want to play it agian, I would try Firefall.  It's close enough for me.

    F2P means you get what you paid for. Pay nothing, get nothing.
    Even telemarketers wouldn't think that.

    NCSoft didn't help it at all. Kind of like AutoAssualt.  While there were some interesting things, it really didn't hold up for me.
