    Really looking forward to The Repopulation. This one and Star Citizen.

    Now if there is any developer out there who could make a next gen mix from TR and ST it even would be greater hehe...

    Music is a bit in your face, at least IMO. Could have used something more subtle. Otherwise, a good trailer, sums up the main features nicely.

    It looks good until they switch to combat.

    Bleh, every mmo is slated to release in 2014-2015...Nothing good this year it seems, ugh.

    I've been interested in the game, the only thing that puts me off is F2P and cash shop. I would rather pay a sub than have to use a cash shop for extra bank space/bag space etc. ... F2P/Cash Shops are annoying. On the fence with this one....

    That is a look at the alpha, so probably not.

    Out of genuine interest, what is it about the combat you don't like?

    What do you expect it to be?

    In a sandbox game like this, how large do you expect the role of combat to be?

    I expect combat to be as polished as all other sanbox elements.

    Just because you are a sandbox game it doesn't give you any excuses, you are still competing with every MMO on the market and all their features, its a brutal business.

    To me it looks super rough, even for alpha, looks like a 10 year old game, but if the gameplay is awesome the graphics won't matter much.

    Its all about gameplay in the end, but I can ignore the fact that it looks dated in a big way.

    I agree.

    That's what I hated about SWG, the combat was god awful. It felt like Sony allowed 10 year old gamers design and develop that mess.

    Here's hoping they do a better job.

    Looks like a good start. Hopefully the graphics and animations will continue to improve.

    Looking forward to this one along with Black Desert, Pathfinder and Archeage.  There may be some sandbox options in the next couple of years.  I prefer sci fi so really hoping for some continued polish and Darkfall type combat system (couldn't tell from the video, but it didn't look DF smooth yet).

    Looks compelling.  I'd love to see some female character creation.  Seems like the game is taking a long time and we are still in alpha though. 

     

    I feel like I'm on the way out of the mmo genre.  Maybe it will arrive in time for me, maybe not.

    That's what happens when you have a small team and a small budget - MMO dev cost has quadrupled over the last 10 years.

    Yep, seems that way.

    This game is at the very top of my list, along with the rest of the 2014 sandbox, sand/park games.

     

    I hate to nit pick on this but c'mon we're in the post apoc future using laser weapons and everything yet still swinging a mining pick?  Gimme a man portable mining laser, or ore extractor! :)

    Need wood? Laser that tree down... Ore? Slice and dice that paltry rock with laser beams... Skinning? no problem... got mah LASER knife!!!!!!!

     

    You get the idea... now back to playing with the cats with the LASER pointer! I need help!

     

    What are your other Hobbies?

    Gaming is Dirt Cheap compared to this...

    They are sure taking there time with this one. Just let me play already :( I wont complain like a lot of these other brats :(
  • Ice-QueenIce-Queen USA, GAMember Posts: 2,442 Uncommon
    The trailer looks fine to me, I think I will still be passing on the game though. F2P and cash shop are two things I know I won't like and make or break it for me when choosing to play an Mmorpg, I just prefer the subscription model instead of the cash shop grab. I like my bag space, my bank slots, and my character slots without having to pay for them individually.

    Yep.  They've spent way too much time on the "fun" stuff like building the world, and not enough on the "required" stuff like actual gameplay.  Combat, and even resource gathering, looks really bad.  They have their development priorities backwards.

    You make me like charity

    Unfortunately, I am in the same boat. I think these guys are really talented and have some good concepts. But I just can't get behind cash shop driven games. I don't want to be solicited while I'm nerding it up in these worlds. I don't want to deal with daily or weekly monetary decisions while I just want to forget about that crap and play a game.

    That's the wrong way to look at it, and that's not how it works in The Repopulation. The devs have packages similar to a box fee, so you pay one time for your bag and bank slots. Also they are a  small indie, F2P is the only way they will be able to survive. Every single game that was subscription based  has gone F2P except WOW and EVE, and they can only do so because they released long ago. Conan, LOTRO, RIFT, Secret World, AION, SWTOR, Vanguard, Fallen Earth, Everquest2. TERA... everyone has went F2P. It's actually ridiculous to hear people complain about F2P when almost every mmo already is. I'd rather them be F2P and survive, than charge sub fees like Darkfall and fail, then try to reboot the game when they run out of money/subs. TESO and EQNext will go F2P eventually as well. Subscription merely means, "We will sell boxes and  a monthly subscription fee till money stops coming in, and then go F2P". Haven't you anti-F2P people figured that out yet?

    I will definitely try out the game since you can for free. But I don't expect to play it for long. I could be wrong though. I haven't played a F2P mmo that has stuck with me for very long in the past. But there is always a first.
    edit: and yes for people like naruiseldon out there I understand there are plenty of people who dont play mmos long term haha
