    hopefully this is an elaborate joke

    if not, then pretty disappointing

    and who cares what WOW has

    Player A: Running around with a 150% speed horse, all happy.

    Player B: Bought a car at the cash shop and now speeds around in 300% speed.

     

    This game will succeed!

    I started watching the video and was thinking "what's wrong with this? just some mounts..."  then it shifted to the beach and I was then like "oh.... my.... god....".

     

    I thought Arche Age was supposed to be some super high fantasy mmo not cruisin china racing.

    lol I did the same thing. All I could think was "they are just fantasy animals".

    Until the "rock" started.

    This is what finally did it for me:

    WoW has rocket ships, race cars, helicopters, dirigibles, aircraft carriers, transporter technology (from "star trek"), pod racers (from "star wars"), steamboats, mecha chickens, mech horses, reaper bots, steam tanks, steam catapults, steam rams, etc, etc. I'm sure Arche Age is hoping to be "officially ruined" like WoW.

    I think the key word, that you yourself repeated, was "Steam".  As to the rest, I dunno.  Don't play that game.

    Playing: H1Z1, The Crew, Defiance, APB:Reloaded
    Mourning: World of Darkness, Vanguard, City of Heroes

    It must be a culture thing. Some Korean movies are that way in the sense that they careen from mood say tragedy, then maudlin sentiment, then totally incongruous comedy, then horror, then back to drama, all in the same movie. It can be disconcerting. Not all Korean movies are like this, but I've seen a fair few that are.

     

    That's not in any way to put down Korean movies. Hollywood movies have their own problems, too. I'm just trying to say that, as others have written here, it's probably a culture thing. It's  not the same as what WoW does, to me, because WoW is cartoony. It's a fair argument to compare WoW though, and I do feel like the whole Goblin thing up in Azshara was a bit jarring. But WoW has, by today's MMO standards, wildly different races: Tauren, Undead, Troll, Dranei, etc. AA has (except for the cat like people) more Anime artstyle and more realistic graphics. 

     

    I'm just feeling disturbed by this. It's not a big deal, but I have just lost my interest in AA. I was willing to overlook the artstyle for the gameplay, but this car thing makes it just not for me. I'm not saying AA is or will be a bad game. Just not what I'm looking for.

    its another of those laughable excuses, doesnt matter how daft an idea is, or how badly implemented, if something else did something equally as daft, then thats okay, its not their fault, its somebody elses.

    And yeah, at first i thought it was some kind of elaborate hoax, somebody knocking together a piece of machinima to spoof people with, but, apparently not, they have really done this. I guess the question is, what else do they have in the works, and is it just as daft as their latest faux pas.image

    I can tell you there are more than 3 people in this thread. That's the only hint I'm giving you. Now you'll have to find the rest of the clues on your own. Are you up for the super sleuth challenge? Good luck junior detective!

  • TofkeTofke GeelPosts: 216Member Common

    What baffles me is that this was known a lot longer and the outrage was also the same back then. People really just found this out?

    I still don't find it overly concerning. I'll see how the whole game will turn out. Used of seeing such items in MMO's. Even WoW has them and that's supposed to be a western game no? :p

    It would have been different if they claimed to be a Medieval mmo but it's fantasy so I can't see why they can't have this in, even when I'm not a fan of it.

    Wow, blown away at how many people expect a fantasy game to be rooted in reality. As if this game being steampunkish was a secret.
  • thecapitainethecapitaine West Chester, PAPosts: 401Member Uncommon
    Isn't this the game with the in-game disco/nightclub?  I recall a video floating around a few months ago featuring that.  Anyway, if all it takes are a couple of cars to ruin the game, it's probably for the best that it's happened now than before any real investment was put into it.  If that's the case, I can virtually guarantee that there will be many other relatively inconsequential factors that are just as likely to ruin the game once we get our hands on it.

    I personally don't care what WoW has. I've hated that game since day one. I just find humor in people saying this game will fail because of some stupid cars, when WoW had similiar technological inconsistencies and is the most successful MMO of all time...

    nah, there were people who insisted that there weren't cars in the game as they had played it/were playing it and that it was something that was introduced and then thrown out.

    Others indicated that if there were cars no one would know what in what capacity they would be used.

    And others insisted it was steam punk therefore it was ok and to be expected.

    If this game is truly "steam punk" then it's put together in a way I feel is sloppy.

    I saw a beta video months ago that had a car in it.

    Already have a few of my universal guilds reconsidering putting this on their game list.  Guess I'll just have to see what the votes say, as those who were supposed to lead that division are the ones now leading the rejection process.  Kind've pressing the pedal too soon, I'd say, since we don't really have more information on these things that -- for all intents and purposes -- shouldn't be present for the sake of the world's presumed immersion.

    Holy shit we already on the level of having universal guilds?

    We found aliens?

     

    sorry couldnt resist

     

    Anyway, yeah the cars look goofy, but then its common asian procedure

     

    You're thinking of universe as opposed to the term "universal".  :P

    Though yes, I know that was probably the joke.

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    Cars have been in for a while, if this ruins it for anybody they are not getting why AA is so awesome to begin with - gameplay.

    One feature does not make up or ruin a game for me.

    To each his own.

    The more I read these threads the more of a problem I have with cars in this game.  xD

     

    Granted I had the opportunity to play it a while back for a few hours thanks to a friend and decided the game wasn't for me back then.  Though only being able to read some of the text (been so long since I've studied language) was probably a deciding factor in that.  Still have my hopes on EQ Next to provide a nice fantasy sandbox game.

    At first I was all like, "It's a high magic fantasy epic, why are people getting bent out of shape?" Then I was all like, "Is that even the same game?" Finally I was all like, "Heh, that guy can't drive."

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.
