I'm always very picky when it comes to games' graphic style. I'm very biased towards "ultra realistic" gfx, yet I love the Wildstar cartoony style
I guess it's because the art fits the game's humorous and over-the-top approach. This is not a game that takes itself seriously. If it plays like a cartoon, then it's perfectly fitting that it looks like a cartoon. It's supposed to be lighthearted and fun, but that doesn't mean it has to be shallow and trivial. We'll have to see how it all plays out in the long run, though.
I like the art style, and the world looks great to me, but I can't get past the console style combat, which (to me) does not lend itself well to a mmo setting, at all. I'm also not fond of the whole path system; I'd think it was rather stupid if they actually tried to divide development time equally between soldier and any of the other paths.
To clarify why I don't like "action" combat in a mmo, it makes gear and skill balance impossible and not as meaningful. I guess I do prefer the numbers game, in an RPG. If I am able to ever get past that, and maybe look at this, not as a mmorpg I invest in, but just a game, I might find it fun.
I am so good, I backstabbed your face!
action as well as tab targeting, if u so choose. too lazy to look for the link i read that in
but i did read it
Originally posted by BadSpock As long as you can do all 4 paths on the same character to really, really create some great play variety I'll be happy. For some reason it kind of reminds me of Earth and Beyond - you had 3 seperate leveling paths in that game - Combat/Trade/Exploration - but the concept was a bit underdeveloped in that game. I love the idea of the Explorer/Scientist/Colonist in this game - now we just have to see about how well that idea is executed.
This is exactly what I was thinking too! Hopefully Carbine are the ones who makes it a better concept!
If it was published by someone else, I'd consider it. But NCSoft will not be getting any more of my money.
I'm glad someone else remembers old E&B. The 3-path leveling system was interesting, it was my first MMO so I had nothing to compare it to. It was one of the earlier games so I can forgive it for being underdeveloped. What annoyed me the most was that no one class could go from raw materials to finished product when it came to crafting. Explorers mined asteroids and tradesmen turned it into components then each class had their own set of finished items they could make. I could see someone saying "game balance" but it cut out a style of play for the pure crafter. I hope this game doesn't do that.
Originally posted by Djildjamesh The animation in the first clip is amazing no 'stiffness' and just silly I like the fact that's it's a non-serious MMO for once ^^ Been a while since we saw a good one. Too many MMO's try to create realistic graphics in which only a rare few succeed imo This
Shut up and take my money! Id give my left nipple to test for this game.
Originally posted by drtack1 I am ready to give it a try. I have somewhat been following things on WildStar here and there. Hopefully it will be fun. Currently when I want to play a shooter style game my go to is Fire Fall. Not sure Wild Star will be enough to take Fire Fall's place, but it does look fun. I dont mind the "looney toonsy" graphics.

This not a shooter style MMO so it can't take fire falls place, in that regard, as they are different styles altogether. I will say that fire fall is meh, but Wild Star could be fun, who knows.

The hype certainly is. I have reached the conculsion that no MMO is worth playing at launch, give it a year and you will have something thats fleshed out into a MMO.
You received 25 Agrees. You're posting some good content. Great!

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.

Originally posted by Nanfoodle Originally posted by darkhalf357x How is the combat? Is tab-target or action-based like Guild Wars 2. That will be a critical deciding factor for me.
Action based. No targeting at all. Dodging with a much more advanced telagraph system. Unlike GW2 they have the holly trinity. IMO thats a step up.
I'm afraid that's not true. There is tab-targeting in the game, although they recently introduced a "free-form" targeting as well.

Originally posted by Derros If you can get past the art style, which seems a little overly cartoony (looney toonsy might be a better description) to me, the game seems very interesting.
He, he, ... you wanted to say it looks like wow? :-) It does, at least to me, cartoony, vivid colors, ... but have no problem with that, wow style rocks as rocks gw2 realistic style.
Anyway ... as long as they are not pvp only and as long there is tab targeting ... I will for sure try.
