May 14th 2009 5:47PM Hmm... Actually It would be interesting to see a present-day fantasy MMO that tackles the problems that traditional fantasy races (orcs, elves, etc) would bring up. How would modern day look it there had been several races instead of one? What sort of problems would "magical creatures" cause in a modern world... Would sports like basketball and football all be dominated by Orcs? Could you be banned from the Olympics for using performance enhancing enchantments? Would Dwarves corner the market on microbrews?
Would we still have FedEx and UPS? Or would it be DragonEX (Fire insured)?
Would Elves dominate the runways as fashion elitists, or would they become eco-terrorists that put Greenpeace to shame?
Would Unicorn racing be banned, due to high risk of jockey impalement?
Would you be charged with murder if you killed a Centaur without a hunting permit?
I think with the right spin, a modern-day fantasy MMO could be quite interesting.
May 14th 2009 3:29PM A steam punk game would be somewhat risqué, imo. Sure its "cool" but fads change. Why invest time/money in an MMO that could fall out of favor of popular trends?
I'm kind of personally getting tired of steampunk, and all the over-saturation its receiving now that its mainstream. Old. Done. Tired of seeing it.
Apr 19th 2009 8:42PM I want animal races to play, you know.. to up the cute factor. :) Maybe humanoid dogs and cats. I don't see a need for elves or Dwarfs... heck they're practically human anyway. One has pointy ears. One is short.
So what if I'm a stereotypical girl going googoogahgah over cute stuff. I like cute. Animals are fuzzy, and adorable. I want to play one o those. :3
Mar 18th 2009 10:40PM I've been playing ESO for the past couple of days and have really been enjoying it.
True, I am female... so yes, the concepts and graphics are Kawaii, and this game should be featured on Cute Overload or something. Its adorable.
Having said that... the gameplay is really fun. Ok you Mudkipz loving Poke fans... You fella's keep saying theres should be a Pokemon MMO... well, this is it. Till Pokemon goes "online", this is the closest thing you'll find.
There are classes just like in warcraft. Rogues, Shaman, mystics, rangers...etc BUT unlike WOW, where only rangers get a pet (ie..huntards) EVERY class gets a pet. Infact, the game IS about having pets. Capturing pets, trading pets, joining with your pet (its called Fuse) to gain their power, and even getting cards off of wild pets (mobs) and transforming into various animals and monsters. Yes you can be a healer with a face pouding mean monster clearing your path. Its fun!
And that is all I have to say. Its free, so...try it, you're not losing money.
Feb 17th 2009 1:44PM Go Zaboo! :) Hmm... would that chick count as a level up, or earning an achievement. *ponder*
Poor confused Codex. Was she doing a corpse run in reverse there at the end? I kinda didn't get that part... maybe it was an out of body experience due to the crappy night she was having.
Also loved the shower scene. Ahhh so violated!
Feb 17th 2009 1:04AM Freerealms looks really fun, but I was VERY disapointed to find out that you can only play a human (pixie is basically also a human, just shorter with wings. *yawn*)
UGH... What a waste...why no neat animal races??
I've never understood why people would want to play a human in a FANTASY setting. Isn't that what real life is for?
Feb 13th 2009 9:38PM I had my achievement completed within two days. I didn't think the candy drop was too unreasonable, but I guess I was one of the lucky ones.
What the hell do I do with all these black dresses now... hmmm.
If you guys are crying over the love is in the air achievements, Open the achievements for "Childrens week" , look them over, and begin crying now... some of those look to be VERY annoying to achieve. The PVP ones are going to be obnoxious. Get ready for some seriously crappy games.
Oh, the pain of watching some classes try to run that flag...with their orphan out. *sigh*
Feb 12th 2009 5:36AM I still want an armored Pterodax mount. I've wanted one ever since hearing about flying mounts being introduced into the game. They just look like they were made for riding. (Currently the onlyPterodax in the game, are located in Un'goro crater).
Second choice would be armored bat, third choice would be a giant Roc mount of some sort. :P
Feb 10th 2009 9:48PM I can't help but feel bad for Zaboo in every episode. I think I'm just too empathetic. :/
I hope the next episodes show a turn-around for him. He's trying so hard. :(
Feb 9th 2009 7:35PM Let this serve as a lessson. When you encounter something fun and unexpected...resist...resist that urge to tell your friend, who tells his friend, who tells his guild, who tells WOW insider, who posts it for all to see.
Blizzard will nerf your fun faster than you can blink, so whatever it may be that you think you discovered... Be cool, and be quiet.
