Is this game the usual Asian stuff?

Against all previous experience, I am tempted give BDO a try, but fear the game will have the usual Asian vibe going on.  You know what I mean...  Mobs with the same synchronized moves in combat like they're line-dancers, pinball-mating-with-a-Christmas-tree light show during combat (and indeed anywhere/everywhere else!), characters shrieking like chimps in heat as they fight, gigantic melee weapons and/or leaping around in combat like a frog on steroids?

    You've done with words, the very thing that you fear as a visual.

    Yes, the game is flashy.  Maybe not as flashy as your depictions.

    You can actually turn off the light effects from you and/or people around you.

    That being said, if you have time to dedicate to the game and are ok with a bit of a learning curve, I think the game is pretty good.  I played for a while and enjoyed it but don't have time to dedicate to it.

    Thanks for saving me the trouble of downloading it.  :D

    It is one of the more popular MMO's out right now and you can't even be bothered to download it and try it?

    Yea maybe you won't like like it because of what you stated, but at least you will know what you are missing.

    One of my best games was one that I was sure I would not like but I thought what the hell, nothing to lose except some time.   Boy, sure glad I did.

    Same goes for a lot of things in life, but hey, if you don't know what you are missing you won't miss it I guess.

    But what if.......?

    FFA Nonconsentual Full Loot PvP ...You know you want it!!

    Yes, it is a typical asian game.

    However imo it would be foolish to give the game a pass just because of single attribute about the game. In games, it is details and the game as a whole that matters.

    How is it a typical asian game? If this was made by a western studio no one would say a word about it and would probably do better just on that fact alone.

    the game has a steep learning curve an if you have a short attention span or need to be told what to do it not worth your time but if you don't mind their lot to do in game an it a lot of fun overall. you can try it for free or pay $10 to own it, which is more then a fair price for what it offers.

    Have you played the game?  It's the definition of "typical Asian game"

    Well, pretty much everything the op said he wasn't looking for, of course it needs to be developed in Asia.  Oh and Grindy as fuck, yeah, that's important.  So yeah, pretty much everything black desert is.

    Sounds like the OP isn't looking for MMOs period.

    A nice game if you are not into flashy graphics is Vindictus. It has some flash, but the characters are much more weighted and combat is a bit slower paced.

    I don't think he was actually ever really interested.

    This thread was just to make a snippy comment about the game. :pleased:

    How original of him.

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    Short answer YES!
  • CrosswireCrosswire Member UncommonPosts: 264
    That's a big YES Op.  You described the game near perfectly.  A load of flash, bangs, unintelligible talk and babes with very large wobbly trolleys.

    Have they improved the poor english language localization yet? The grammar was atrocious and sounded like it was translated using google translate. Actually, Google translate probably would have done a better job. As one who actually reads dialogue and quest text, I found this game unplayable. It was difficult to even follow most of the conversations. Aside from that, I was not a fan of the combat. Kudos to those that enjoy this game, but it was not for me. I tried, I really did try. It's a pretty game but that's about it.

    I don't mind the traditional Asian games such as FFXIV,  at least you can understand what's being said in that game.  It's these new Asian games were your hero is wearing a G-string and holds a sword the size of a planet.  Your powers are unlimited and extremely daft. You can zap here, and wiz there, you can break mountains with your teeth and dispatch a whole army of dragons by flashing your boobs/ hairy chest.  
    Games like that just make me want to hurl in my silver flying boots.

    Asian art, combat, heavy rng crafting, mob grinding and overall focus on grind, lower quality compared to west titles, etc.

    LOL, don't be obtuse, you know exactly what he means, seems most everyone else in this thread does.

    Japanese games might have some similarities in art styles, but from a quality and playing perspective IMO they tend to be a cut above games developed elsewhere in Asia.
