Huh.. looks better than EQNext
They go for realistic water but then the rest still has the "old as fuck" look.
Only people I ever heard playing this were young kids(8-15ish) who couldn't get parents to pay for a sub to the other mmos.
I don't know... looks as good, if not better, than Albion Online.
Whatever happened to Tibia? Speaking of the 8-15 year olds, they were always using our Public Library and College lab computers to play Tibia. Drove me crazy. They were so obsessed with it.
Why could EQ do something like this though? Whenever they updated their zones, they looked worse. You could have easily recreated EQ classic and possibly even Kunark via Unity or other engines and made a good attempt at this. I've thought about making some zones myself just to try to keep some people together to at least bring Classic EQ to life but not sure if it would be worth the time. If I would have known the MMO genre would have been so stale this long, I probably would have tried at last a piece of it.
I just think it's impressive considering the game started out as this...
As for why this never happened with EQ... I'm guessing because Runescape just gets fully revamped, where as EQ just got loaded down with half sassed revamps and sequels. As for weather adults play Runescape, yeah, they do. There's quite a few Runescape twitch players. When this NXT thing releases I might give it a whirl. There's nothing else out worth a damn.
As for Tibia online, it's still around... Looks the same as it always has, though.
I still play Runescape. Double exp starts tomorrow morning. I play RS3, no OSRS.
Do they have traditional servers? I've never played Runescape but it is slightly intriguing. Is there a server with old school MMO players? Can't help but cheer for these guys a little now as they seem to have taken care of their core game and not, as previously mentioned, added crap around it.
I played runescape for a little while. It's a neat little game. Considering their obvious lack of a budget, they managed to do a lot with a little.
It is/was a LOT like EQ. Except there was no real group content. But back when I played it was mostly kids playing it.
NXT Launches April 18th
NXT is now live.
For some reason it is running my GPU warmer than WoW/FFXIV lol. Sitting at the login screen tho, to download the cache data (about 8gb).
I've never played runescape but I may give this a try.
Thats actually a really appealing art style
Heroes of the Storm Hotsdogs
It's been there for 15 years so there are a lot of content, dungeons, quests, zones. Being an old game, it kept a lot of its old school mechanics from back then. The game is super grindy but there are so many things to do that it's easy to break down in smaller tasks. It's your typical old school mmo where you have to do the same action a million time to skill up.
The old quests are total trial-and-error-need-a-guide trash. You will see much better quality quests from the more recent ones. They usually are voice-acted and expand on lore.
Typical themepark combat. Actually, you can pretty much AFK the combat if you feel like it and the game will auto-select your skills as they come off cooldowns.
Oh yeah, and it's point-and-click movement.
The graphics look good but point and click sounds awful for a MMO.
Almost every skill has a use. Its f2p so give it a try!
And actually, crafting is the name of a certain skill. It makes leather-type armor and other things. You need to raise every skill up eventually to do certain quests. And the quests arent your typical collect 10 bear asses.
I never played Runescape either but kudos to them. I wish EQ would have take this approach or would even still. I may even fire this up just for the sake of supporting their cause. What server do people play on? I don't have a game on my Macbook right now and i'm about to start my usual traveling months.
You can go to any server. They are just numbered worlds
I've been playing it off and on. It's grindy, but there are some really good quests in the game. Like, top notch stuff. Also very populated, though the community is split between old school and RS3.
No real dungeons, I'd say their raids are called "Bossing". Questing unlocks some nice perks if you do certain ones (certain teleports, special magic, training areas, etc)
Free has a nice chunk of content, but subbing is where its at. $8/month
