    very nice thread Khala, I tip my bonnet to you, sir =)

    I just wished people watched all those videos and read around a bit before calling it a WoW clone, but hey...

    You'll always have uninformed people or people too lazy too look further calling other MMO's 'WoW clones'.

    Nothing that can be done about that, I'm afraid.

     

    Still, for those interested it's good to have a lot of the information at hand, to learn more about the game. So good job, Khalathwyr image  (and luckily it's now all on a sticky)

    I'll keep an eye on it for a day or two. I had some trouble getting to a few Rift related sites last night but I can get them now. I'll move it to the appropriate category for now. Thanks for the heads up.

    Thanks, a lot of stuff to watch and read :)

    I have to admit that this game seems pretty interesting.

  • XandryaXandrya Member Posts: 59

    NIce post Khalathwyr.  This makes it so much easier to direct people who don't know about Rift yet.  I can just send them here to get a handle on what the game is all about.

  • AstraeisAstraeis Member UncommonPosts: 378

    I see you added a new fansite. Have a look here. It has most sites listed by you already plus one or two more:

    http://www.riftzone.nl/fan_websites

    and an impressive list of videos:

    Good deal. Updated with links to to sites that I didn't have. Looks like Telara Times is indeed gone. I'll check one last time on Monday and then remove it. Weird though as I thought I saw Sornin around on the official forums so I don't think he lost interest. Must just not have the time anymore.

    Thanks again!

    You're welcome again. I see you left out Rift Zone itself.

    I meant to add it. Sorry about that. I blame it on being 3:40 in the morning and having been up almost 24 hours and just coming home from table-top RPG gaming for 6 hours. Then trying to multi-task forum hopping plus my guild responsibilities, lol!

    No problem, I just had to point it out. It s the way I am. Sleep well.

    Great information...thx for the post.

  • terroniterroni Member Posts: 935

    Thanks for the info.

    There is a new dev tracker http://www.rift-news.com/index.php/devtracker/

    And a simplefied version http://www.rift-news.com/index.php/devtracker/simple/

    Drop the next-gen marketing and people will argue if the game itself has merit.

  • QazzQazz Member Posts: 577

    Thanks for posting this.  I have a couple friends that are following this game closely, and to be honest I couldn't figure out why.  I guess I hadn't seen anything about it that was much different from anything out there.  I'll check out the links and see what the buzz is about I guess.

  • trixlette57trixlette57 Member Posts: 3

    Wow thanks for all the links, very very useful!

  • KhalathwyrKhalathwyr Member Posts: 3,138

    New dev trackers. Thanks to terroni and gtakyn (Rift News).

  • Cik_AsalinCik_Asalin Member Posts: 3,033

    Excellent job, and glad it's stickied.  Myself, I've been listening through the podcasts, which is on the list.  Nice relaxing way of listening and surfing simultaneously.

     

    I'm interested in this title, and the more I listen to and read about, I think this game, with it's breadth and depth of player-involved pvevp cooperative and competitive game-play and warzones, might just put a stop in my "crap in the last 5-years" mentality and commenting. 

  • Germaximus_SGermaximus_S Member UncommonPosts: 1,061

    Nice.

    Monthly price announced yet?

    Not that I have seen as of today. I'd expect the normal $14.99/month like normal ttraditional MMOs since they are going after making a traditional MMO. Hopefully their will be a package deal as I'm kind of interested in End of Nations and may want to give their game that's tied to the upcoming SyFy television show a go as well.

    But again no, as of right now no concrete subscription information.
