    Oh I SOOooo need to go back and start a new character! Haven't played in months. It is a totally wonderful game, really captured the best of the "old-school" (the best minus the worst). But.. but.. the COW! Oh... I don't know... The Cow was the best part without doubt of the old newb area. Need to petition for the Cow's return!

    A game that was made from just about 75K $? WOW!! just WOW!!! This is indeed great accomplishment.

    Boobs are LIFE, Boobs are LOVE, Boobs are JUSTICE, Boobs are mankind's HOPES and DREAMS. People who complain about boobs have lost their humanity.

    A really good game that I was happy to support.  have not played it in a few months.  No rush.  Let them flesh it out more, but definitely a nice throwback MMORPG for those looking for such!

    Hope they keep the PvP out.  I love me some PvP, but not in this game.  Not every game needs to have it and this is one that just SCREAMS PvE only.

    F'ing hilarious as always HiveLeader lol. But you bring up an excellent point that many people do not seem to understand.When games have 'great' graphics, they really have to compromise in other things. Sure people want to test their 'rigs' etc but does that really keep people invested at the end of the day? No. As long as game play is solid and keeps you invested way after cap, its a good game.

    Awesome video as always.

    I made a new character to play through the tutorial island. It's a huge improvement over the old cave. There is a lot I didn't do on there and will see if I can get back soon. I wanted to take a look around since I hadn't played in a while either.

    Well he basically has the initial experience that everyone including myself had,so yeah he doesn't spend enough time in game.

    I am not so sure the nob experience island is a great idea,i think outdoors and lighting is perhaps better than a dank dungeon.Losing the Cow not so great,that was a cool idea to let new players witness it and be turned int o a Cow.
    The video is simply too short it does not come anywhere near touching a real experience that comes from playing for months like i did.I played for about 6 months.

    Anyhow the game does offer that unique initial pull to keep you pushing for more and exploring more but then after 6 months it gets the same old ,bland feeling.

    There are not enough assets and that means textures as well.Walls and buildings are basically square little architecture.

    The power/stamina bar is something i touched on today with another game.It is far too limiting,it ruins combat big time,it takes all control out of your hands and basically says ok with this many points here is all you can do,don't even think about doing any more.
    On that note many days,many years of gaming has told me to stay away from stamina bars and point allotment systems,they do not do a single thing to improve gaming,they only make it worse.

    Bottom line:Sure the game is worth trying,i feel it is unique enough that these types of games should be witnessed by everyone before they are gone and disappear.If you are into small detail and demand a lot like me,i think you will still find a few months of enjoyment out of this game.You will find other small ideals that will bother you as you play,but i am not going to write a novel explaining everything,you'll have to play it for yourself.

    Highlight of my day? Every time a new HiveLeader video comes out. Not sure if my life sucks or if HiveLeader's videos are just. that. good.
  • RhygarthRhygarth Member UncommonPosts: 258
    Great video, funny as ever :)
    As for the game I can live with the gfx but the combat I can't live with its to stiff and tbh just boring :/
  • ThebeastttThebeasttt Member RarePosts: 1,130
    I def. don't expect AAA graphics but the combat animations from the year 2000 will never fly no matter how good the gameplay is, which isn't good enough to justify such terrible combat.

    Haven't played this in like a year, been thinking about checking it out again.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    First HiveLeader Video I have watched and I liked it! I played the game a bit and liked that too. I will probably try out the new starter area soon.

    Not followed this game at all, thanks for the video Hiveleader, piqued my interest and haven't put the game down for the past few days, awesome fun. Graphics don't matter when the gameplay wins out so well, kudos to the developers, will deffo throw them some money when it hits Steam, worth every penny of the asking price. A gem.

    This is one of my favorite games - I lose track of time way too easily when I log on. Thanks for a great video HiveLeader!

    I try to always be perfectly honest weather people believe it or not,i don't really care.

    This is one of those games i feel everyone should at least try.It does have an interesting fun feel to it for at least a few months.
    However having played for 6 months ,i can say the game is really a neat idea in some cases overall it is not that great.I consider the great games to be the ones i have played for several years.

    this is a rare game that needs a two part rating system.

    months 1-6 the game is a 7-8/10
    months 7+ the game is a 5/10 and likely dropping off eventually to a 4/10.

    The game definitely could be improved but would need a different stance on design and just an overall bigger budget with more assets.

    Waiting for the Steam release so they the money help them. Hopefully they can meet their needs for the assets to get the game looking "decentish". 

    I find the longer you play a game with dated looks the easier it becomes to overlook it and see the game for what it is. A great game with crap graphics tends to look far better over time than it does at first glance.

    You stay sassy!

    Disagree completely, but I loved Ashron's Call and the way they built their world. This is very close to a spiritual successor considering a lot of the mechanics in the game. Not to mention the people making Gorgon were on the AC team back in the day. I do agree with a bigger budget being needed and maybe with the kickstarter success and the soon to be release on steam they can make some major improvements.

    Yes, there is still a cow curse, just not in the tutorial area.
