    Now I hope they announce it will be a subscription based mmo here in the West, with no cash shop. Hey, I can dream, right? image

    That is QUITE good news. I was concerned it would be NCsoft or SOE.

    If Trion can actually publish this game in less then a year unlike other publishers then I might actually give a crap that they got it but considering alls this means is we got to wait another year + for Trion to get off their asses to translate this game before we even get to touch it. Hopefully they will do some kinda sub deal like they SOE did or does whichever it is now where you only need 1 sub to play Archage and Rift. =P

    Hallelujah! Pras Jebus! Pras!

    Say what you want about Rift, I have found my interactions with Trion to be nothing short of delightful.

    Genuinely good customer service.

    Just reporting in to add to the chorus of happiness.

    Wow, this great news. Go Trion!

    i Hope its work!

    That's what everyone said about Rift too, and here we are, 2 years later, with Rift having a pretty big following and good player retention.

    I hope they make it P2P just as a filter for jackassery. Knowing TRION you will probably get the first few levels of the game F2P just to test the waters a few months after release. They are good about that kind of thing.

    Either way, this company is great, have had nothing but good experiences with them, even with some of the problems Rift has.

    Rift is doing horribly.  They have a small niche following and are down to 6 pve, 1 rp, and 1 pvp server.  How is that "a pretty big following and good player retention"?

    The P2P "jackassery" comment is simply ridiculous posturing and condescension.  Both WoW and Rift, sub-locked games, have more than their fair share of asshats.  The paywall doesn't keep out asshats because there are plenty of jerks with money willing to sub.  Look at some of the p2p proponents on this site and the simple minded rude comments they make.  Burning money on a subscription doesn't make you an angel.

    Trion has a lot of potential because they're focused and determined, but they have yet to prove themselves.  They have had to rescue EoN and are taking a huge risk with Defiance.  Rift is middling along with pretty much nothing exceptional to make it stand out.  They have laid off over 40 long term employees including Hartsman and one other producer.  Are they still riding on the coat tails of

    Can they grow their games?  Can they keep up the development/release cycle in Rift?  Two years of limping a game along doesn't make them a competent publisher.  I do think they can pull it off and are the best choice in NA pubs, but we should be careful and watch them closely.  They had a lot of momentum for the first 18 months.  How they move forward remains to be seen.

    Who would've guessed Trion?!  Such a great choice.
  • caetftlcaetftl Los Angeles, CAPosts: 358Member
    This doesn't seem wise, trion is having internal shake-ups.  The more experienced gaming industry vets know trion tried to hype their products too much and hoped that hype would create money that would allow them to actually deliver on the hype.  Didn't really work...

    No, everyone is getting high off the possibilities their expecations are generating.  Come down is a bitch.

    Tell me why is everyone getting excited about this?

    uh oh..

     

    It’s all you expect from a triple-A game,” [Buttler, CE of Trion California] said. “In this category, you have to see World of Warcraft as competition.

     

    I really hope they aren't going to try to compete with WoW and start redoing stuff.

     

    BTW, I didn't see where Trion is trying to release AA this year.  It will eventually go into testing this year, sometime later.

    you should find it right over the picture of the hariharan.

    wow i REALLY did not see that one coming i for sure thought NCSOFT was going to pick this one up.. well good for Trion i think they will do great with it and really hope it comes soon to the US

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    Good question.

    i'd say two reasons for me

    1. Archage finally gets a US publisher and a probable 2013 release in the US

    2. Trion is a great company imho.. especially compared to some other companies that run MMOs out there

    Nice to see AA finally getting an NA publisher. A lot of people should be happy, especially since it's Trion Worlds, which is one of the few publishers with a decent history. Was looking like TESO would be the GOTY shoe in for  2013 but we'll see if AA really gets launched this year.

    Number 1 is great, but why number 2?  Why is Trion going to better than any other NA publisher? Granted the list of decent NA publishers is meager, but Trion doesn't have a great record at all.  What have they done, other than some incredible marketing with regards to their own public image?
