Those graphics are gorgeous. Hopefully the game play will be equally pleasant.

With all the info being released on ArcheAge recently, I'm having a massive flood of UO memories hitting me full force.

I just wish more developers would stop dumbing down modern MMOs so much to cater to the stupid players ~ who knows maybe they'll learn something by forcing themselves to play something thats more challenging than their average choice.

Am eagerly awaiting this title...

@Khalus Ah the good old days, I sure do miss them.

All there new trailers are making me feel like the fact it's being released in the East with no information about a Western release is being rubbed in my face. Finally an MMO that looks to be what a UO2 should look like and I most likely wont get my hands on it until 2015. Oh well, here is hoping that there will be more projects like this in the future. ^_^

The house up on the hill is mine. I make find swords and armor. I also breed some of the fastest horses in the east. Come join me, I have a lot of stories to tell you...

Man, this game will be the epitome of roleplaying I tell you!

I was looking through that site at some of the other things you can do. Animal husbandry, mining, herbalism, farming, crafting furniture.

I REALLY hope this game isn't buggy and unbalanced. I'll upgrade my machine and play it the first week of release if it's good. I haven't played an MMO at release since WoW.

@DeadlyAccurate
The question is, how to make those activities fun and challenging as opposed to mindless button mashing.

In other words, will the process be closer to WoW, or to Vanguard? Even something more like EQ2 would be welcome. But if they forget that this is a game then there could be a problem.

I would realy like to know what an "arche" is, and why does it get its own age?

@aurickle This game is set in ancient Greece then? It's an odd word, hardly ever used.

(I have many pet peeves, odd titles being one of them. I'm still puzzling over Rappelz.)

@Lenn I think its just a pseudo-archaic way of spelling Arch. Basically, I the name is meant to mean something like 'The Greatest Age'.

@Lenn I don't care if this game was called "Penis: The Age of Weiner".

@Lenn "This game is set in ancient Greece then? It's an odd word, hardly ever used."
Yes, all words that have roots in Greek language indicate that they apply only to ancient Greece.

Learned physics, geography in school? You are Greek.
Doctor talked to you about your illness? He is Greek and speaks only Greek language.

Ok, i think i made my point now :)

I swear to god, every single time I read about this game, it just gets better and better.

But also makes me angry because I know how long of a wait its going to be. I sorta hate when I find out about games I really want, so early.

Ugh, I just want to play it. Maybe I'll move to Korea.

I'm with you Grumms! I wish I read/write Korean so as to be able to try and play in the Korean betas... This is the first game I've been really excited about in years. There's just nothing out there right now that I have any great interest in.

@Saker We're twins! I'm going to download Korean on my Rosetta Stone, just for this game (I wouldn't mind learning it!, haha)

But man, this game is the only game I've been REALLY excited about in years. Everything I want!

EUGH! I just hate how next-gen this MMO could be. It has the potential to do new innovative stuff and pull it off smoothly but then it has to go and use the most boring, piece of crap kind of combat in the book - point 'n click.
I dunno maybe I'm just weird but I am so over that kind of combat, I feel if they're going to be so innovative they should try a combat system like GW2, TERA, B&S or even SWTOR wouldn't be so bad.

I guess some people like pnc though so who am I to complain, but that's just my one frustration with this game.

@Kaoss Mine, too. It won't be enough to keep me from playing the game if everything else is fantastic, but after trying out the Darkfall trial, I'm hooked on aim-based combat.
