Age of Conan
« on: 2008-04-03 15:06:58 »

I've started getting emails about technical beta tests for this game... unfortunately I don't have a working computer at the moment, so... graaaaauuugh. If you haven't signed up to beta test yet, you should. And check out the awesome videos they have on the site.

The city-building aspect of the game is what really has me interested. It includes not just PvP siege warfare, but if you elect to build a city outside of PvP zones you face PvE sieges. It would be awesome to construct and defend a [furrycity], but alas as no one actually plays games anymore I'm sure I'll tire of it quickly as with PotBS... I still preordered it for my brief amusement.

Really excited about this game, not to say this hasn't happened before (see DnL, POTBS, GandH and others) but I think if we can get enough [] in the game we can have a lot of fun playing games again...remember, anyways I will be trying it even if I don't get into beta. Well if they ever stop postponing the release, which I'm all for, get it right.

I'd be really surprised if they make that date.

Why do you think that? Also fix your PC before it comes out. Been reading up on the game a lot more and it just gets better and better. [NS] if this game delivers I will be creating a schedule around this game and I guess the baby too, I guess whatever. Dude, Mammoth riding...fatalities....siege weapons against player cities.and nipples, there will be nipples displayed if that alone doesnt make you want to play things game then I don't know what would.

Rumor has spread throughout the land that Best Buy has finally gotten their pre-order boxes in store, which contains the War Rhino mount, 8 slot inventory belt and 3 day early access key. I will venture to this "Best Buy" and risk life and limb to get answers. Testicles...that is all.

Check this video out, shows combat and explains a lot of the game play, may get some of you finally on board.

Same standard classes.  Same standard levels.  Remind me what's so exciting about this?

Because I like it.  Now back to my question.  Why are we supposed to be interested in another elf game with the exact same classes as Vanguard, LOTR, WOW, EQ?

No elves, very solid mechanics, a semi-flexible skill system (not as flexible as SWG or MO was but whatever) even the specialists don't have to be one trick ponies due to the diversity in the power sets and invention system. 

Solid, if stylized, graphics. 

You don't start off killing rats and collecting wolf pelts like every single fantasy mmo ever created.  You start off, somewhat...super.

Using good "gear" doesn't affect your appearance, allowing a high degree of individuality in appearance while still letting the uber toons be uber.

The game and most of the dev team was sold to the publisher, and has flourished under new management.  Free publishes every 3-4 months that if combined and released annually would be a retail item if it were another company.

Sure there are the same congenital problems that it always had.  A new good game would be welcome.  But at this point I can afford to wait and see what happens, and not be too desperate to jump on the next great thing that turns out to suck.   I did that already several times.

No elves.

COH has all the same classes as all these games except named differently, they are ALL the same. Melee, Ranged and Spells (spells falls into sub categories like healer of mage).

Look I cant say this game is going to be the next big thing, we all got burned by DnL, but I'm sorry I have tried all the games listed above with the exception of Vanguard and what they are doing with AoC's combat system is way more advanced than any of those.

This game is showing promise and the only way to find out if it indeed is the next [MMO] is to actually play the damn thing. God forbid we try to get [everyone] to play the same game again.

I don't consider 'no elves' to be a reason, but as DT mentioned there are no elves in AoC. There is, however, a combat system where you actually aim your weapon (both melee and ranged), mounted combat, fatalities, player-owned cities, both PvP and PvE city sieges, way better graphics than most, if not all MMOs on the market... on the flip side, I don't think this will be the MMO to end all MMOs. If that's what you're waiting for, you'll be waiting for a very long time. If your expectations are set at SWAT 3+++++ and you get SWAT 4 you'll always be disappointed.
