    Well if the character "Immaguy" is any indication of what male characters look like in the game then I'm sure you're going to make a killing selling "Testosterone Pills" if they are sold in the cash shop.

    no word on making the gameplay smoother. Back at Gpotato the game needed more polish (movement, combat, etc felt heavy and not very smooth)

    I actually enjoyed this game (not as my main, mind you). I still kinda miss "Punky" (my Anima). Looking forward to getting back into this one.

    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.

    I had quite a bit of fun with this game. In the beginning the animations bothered me, but honestly I just kept wanting to play for some reason.

    "NetMarble recently announced that it had gained ownership of Prius Online"

    Wait, wasn't NetMarble supposed to be the developper of Prius Online?

    Im kinda lost there....

    Maybe they licensed it out, and got the license back after the other publisher no longer wanted it?

    You might want to change the Arcane Saga icon to no longer say "Prius Online".

    I also wonder what Toyota thought about the game.

    You can make other male characters that look more manly. That race isn't supposed to be super manly. The race is described as being "graceful and elegant." Basically it heavily hints that they are supposed to be more feminine. I actually liked that they made a race like this as it makes it seem like they are trying to get a bigger variety of players in their game :)

    if you say so.... However, when I play a male character I want to look like a male character, not a female crossdresser who hasn't got a clue on how to dress like a male.  That character "Immaguy" is basically wearing black nylons, a cod piece that hides his cod and his chest armor is just big enough to hide "his" "breasts".

    Personally, that one screen shot alone would put me off from even looking into this game further than this one article.

    "Re-launches rarely happen"

    That's a lie. Generick Korean MMO's get closed down and then re-launched as a "sequel" all the time.

    the game was closed for contractual problems. aka, developers want more controls on what gpotato was doing, gpotato negate it, they fight over and the game was closed.

    And right now you can level to 25 in hours!  Skip the grind! 

    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein
