    Looks great, but will it be B2P or P2P. Is there a timeline for brining it to NA?

    With a name like Snail Games they better hope the game performance is really good, otherwise the jokes will be plentiful...

    Optional PvP = No PvP

    Here ya go http://www.twitch.tv/onybic/b/334625457 some UI and gameplay for ya (from the Chinese version 9yin)

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

    Great use of the z-axis.

    Reminds of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon - in a good way.

    If i ever play a chinese game or a game i know is from a chinese company, i will only pay for game time using gamecards, never my CC. A personal security issue for me.  With "gold farming" such a HUGE industry in china i couldnt imagine a game from there or owned there not being part of or overrun by that farming. Over all i am waiting for Blade and Soul over this title. Might try it thou, we'll have to see alot more information before i decide.

    "The game features realistic combat.... "

    "....replicating the fighting styles made popular by blockbuster Chinese martial arts films. "

     

    This, ladies and gentlemen, is a prime example of LOLROFLCOPTERLMFAO.

    realistic combat for wuxia genre? Yes.

     

    Realistic does not always mean "as in real life". 

     

    "Realistic combat in wuxia genre" pretty much means being able to replicate the insane moves and floaty combat of those wuxia movies. Its 100% faithful to the genre, so you won't spend time running into invisible walls, stabbing a player a few times and seeing words "Miss" float above him or breaking your immersion in various other possible ways.

    Seems quite interesting, I enjoy this kind of stuff with my martial arts background, the 'realistic fantasy' approach making it look as if it could happen while being of course a fantasy element. Sometimes it does look a bit silly but a lot of the martial arts style you can tell and in many cases it can be quite faithful in that area in a 'what if' way given what they are doing was possible.

    Just got my beta key for the EU version called Age Of Wulin, looking forward to running up buildings and mountains.

    Yeah, depending on how you take that statment, it could seem a bit funny.  The game is meant to 'replicate' the fighting styles seen in those films.  It's true and accurate to the fictional styles.  

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.
