I am not surprised at all, not in the least bit.

Because Vindictus has one thing so many MMO's lack, fun. Pure distiled fun.
No long, drawn out gameplay, no auto attack, no grinding all for the sake of having fun at 'end game'.
Just simple, straight forward bottled fun.

Hop on for 15 mins, achieve something, have a ton of fun in the meantime.
Parties are also loose and fun, no standing around lfg, just join someone as they are going into a mission, usual weather they like it or not.

And for once in what seems like an eternity, fast paced, kinetic and down right enjoyable combat.


No bloody wonder it's winning prizes.
Not surprised at all.

I completely agree. I often find myself not even paying attention to my experience bar or even the quest I am doing. It gets even more grand when tackling huge bosses with a large group of people.

Or the absolutely pant wetting experience of having a mac-truck polar bear barrel down on you for the first time.

Haven't had a challenge like that since Monster Hunter Freedom Unite.

Wasnt a fan of Vindictus, but apparently the Korean playerbase loves it.

Grats for them on the awards.

And still... nothing for anyone outside the US or EU... Thanks Nexon... Thanks for nothing.

It sucks, I know, but there are work arounds if you research just a little.
To which I made a guide just for the regular occasions where someone gripes about it being US/Canada only.

Now there really isn't any excuse not to try this game out.

Yeah, it's a matter of getting the right program.
Some proxy programs won't work with certain IP's.

But ProxyFirewall has no such problems.
Spread the word if you would.

It's not even in the EU is it? I thought it was US only?

@Neurotic
Ignoring the fact that I openly stated that Vidictus was US/Canade "only" three comments above aside.
Using a proxy server, the right programs and know-how, you can quite easily circumvent the regional IP block.

So it doesn't really stop people from playing it if they want.
I live in NZ, and I have no problem playing it.

It's a bummer but nevertheless....

With these wins and the growing popularity of the game, you can expect this will give the publisher easy incentive to expand.

I wouldn't be surprised if you hear news on this very soon.

It's fun, I just hope it doesn't set a trend for MMOs launching with only two clas... err, two characters without much customisation.

In Soviet Korea, MMOs customize you!

Hehe. So true. And you learn to like it!

I wonder if an MMO with just one appearance and one class would qualify as a socialist fantasy... I have a feeling it wouldn't have a gear grind or an auction house either :p
