is in full swing with NCsoft
taking full advantage of social networking, from twittering
about their activities to streaming video
on Facebook in order to promote their newest MMO. Aion
has been the talk of the show with everything from an eye-catching booth
and drool-worthy swag
to live theatre
(a must-see even if the acting is cringe-worthy) to an interview with the Korean development team.
Associate Producer Lani Blazier took to the stage
to put the audience's questions to Aion
's Lead Designer Yongchan Jee in an epic seventy minute video. This includes discussing the origins of the combat system and PvPvE, what makes Aion
different from other games like WoW
and Lord of the Rings Online
to offering advice for would-be games designers. The interview itself is great because it's not just all about the English devs, instead we're getting to the source and a chance to listen to direct answers from one of the creators of 2009's most anticipated MMO.
