ok, so I've been reading up on 9Dragons and I wanted to clear some things up. Before I start, I can't ensure my info to be 100% correct.
first of all according to Acclaim's Ken Chan, 9Dragons will be free to play. I don't know if this information has changed or if its just wrong, but thats what I got out of this interview. (it's actually talking about Acclaims other game "Bots" but Ken said that all of Acclaims games will be free) Heres the link : http://gamingvisionnetwork.blogspot.com/2006/03/interview-with-ken-chan-of-acclaim.html
secondly, I wanted to say that there will be over 500 different custumizable features from your starting costume to the eyes on your character. This will ensure that you won't wonder into your clone while you're playing. http://rpgvault.ign.com/articles/694/694809p2.html thats the link.
This will make at least a few people happy. According to this interview, lag will be at a minimal since there server can hold thousands of players and their engine is fast running and new. They will actually add servers if it is needed. http://rpgvault.ign.com/articles/697/697031p2.html. (personally, I think I'll play the game before I acually believe this.)
Other info-(don't quote me, no links but I remember reading it somewhere lol)
---- The storyline will be huge will over 400 quests. Most of these quests will intertwine with the storyline making sure that this game won't be just a grind fest. They also said that they would add 20-40 new quests every month but I'm not sure.
---- 9Dragons will be a point and click game. (eh... I could get used to it) There will be hotkeys to help you out too though. (ex. "g" for "pick up"/"c" for "sit down")
---- AI will supposedly be ""smart" So weaker monsters will run away from you while stronger ones will attack you. There also will be no penalty for dying. This is because Acclaim wants the players to focus on mastering their Martial Arts instead of worrying about what you lose when you die.
---- here are some links for movies for two of the six clans that they will start with: Wu Tang clan - http://rpgvault.ign.com/articles/704/704025p1.html (download underneath pictures) and Mo-Jiao http://dl.qj.net/9Dragons-Trailer-Movie-PC-Gaming-MMORPG-Other-Games/pg/12/fid/7931/catid/476 (download near bottom)
I personally can't wait till this game comes out in open beta so I can see if it lives up to its reputation. Again I don't ensure that all my information is 100% correct. Anyways, hope I cleared some things up and feel free to post questions and I will try and answer them. Cheers
To know, is to know that you know nothing. That is true knowledge.
