    Aion and GW2 are from same developers? Right?

     

    Why would you choose to play Aion over GW2?

  • BrokenSpoonBrokenSpoon Member Posts: 205

    No they are not. Arena.net is Guild Wars 2. Aion is Aion Team Development.. NCSoft is just the Publisher.

    I must be imagining this, I was told this stuff doesn't happen, but I'm seeing it happen, but it doesn't happen, what is happening?

    Because some people don't understand the difference between Developer and Publisher!

    Even if they were from the same developers they are different games...which makes OP just a troll, and unsurprisingly he is a GW2 fan.

    They are from the same publisher, not developer.

    Aion is made in Seoul, GW 2 in Bellevue, Washington.

    And the games are actually rather different. All that said I think Aion will loose many western players to GW2 but players can very well enjoy Aion and not GW2.

    Both PvE and PvP are rather different if you check it up.

    NCsoft fully owns both studios. They call all the shots. It is their prerogative to let Anet do their own thing or lead them by the nose if they so wish.

    Still, these two games are quite different both in flavor and in-game mechanics. There is a market for both and both games have a low barrier of entry. In fact, you will be able to play them both and Aion will be cheaper if you choose to avoid the cash shop.

    Don't know. Started playing Aion a few days ago.

    Haven't played one in years and wanted to get back in the mood for when Guild Wars 2 releases.

     

    Starter island was pretty fun but lineair. Just arrived in the Abyss. Can't say I'm that impressed so far but I don't care for Asian style.

    Actually no, I'm not.

     

    Im not a fan of either of the games. Thats why I asked.

     

    I have been thinking about playing GW2, but havent decided yet.

     

    But I actually thought they were the same dev.

     

    But now I know why GW2 doesnt look as asian as Aion does :)

    *cheer* try and have fun what ever you play :D

    Well, I think it's unlikely that GW2 will launch before the end of summer, so there is nothing stopping you from playing Aion, since it's already out. And since it's F2P, if you don't like it, you can just uninstall.

    If this is not GW2 fan trolling than what is?

    Next time YOU reply with a troll response like the above think about your logic first before responding, you are basically saying I cannot play Fifa 2012 at the same time as Dead Space 2 and at the same time as Need for speed because the Dev is EA?

    As most people replied, they are 2 completely different games, I am a casual player, play around 3-4 hours a week and I still manage to play 4 mmorpgs.

    Even if it was from the same dev then so what? A lot of people prefer Lineage 2 to Aion too. Just because they are from the same dev studio doesn't mean the one is improved version of the other.

    Such blatant troll posts should just have the thread summarily deleted. Why can't more than one person report a thread? Forum software is really not great.

    Because they are entirely different games? GW2 wont have a traditional PvE end-game (raids, gear progression etc) for people who enjoy that sort of gameplay.

    Dead Space is from Visceral Games, Need for Speed is from Criterion Games and Fifa 2012 is from EA Sports, different developers, EA is the publisher.

    because anything no matter how crap it is, there will be someone who likes it. An undeniable fact.
