The real question is:


Can one grow virtual Limes in the game and can someone use this important ingredient in crafting recipes...or in-game margaritas?

1. Generic bland name: check.
2. The same super-deformed anime character styles we've seen since 2004: check
3. Pets and mounts, because they are the easiest thing to monetize in a F2P game: check.
4. Brought to the states by Aeria games (motto: we rip you off less than Gpotato does!): check.
5. Will have at least one $25 or more cash shop item: check.
6. Despite all of the above, will last 4-5 years because it costs little to maintain it, and there are always some people who will pay money in games like these: double check.

Happy happy. joy joy.

@Dblade
as surprising as this may be to you, there are *lots* of people that find these kinds of games really appealing, me being one of them.
always amused when people act like their opinion is THE opinion and nothing else matters /giggle

This game actually has a development crew with a lot of experience and success behind it.

Even the music for it has received good press.

I am excited to try it out and disheartened to see that it is only in Alpha.

@Pingles if you mean by lots of experience "some ex-developers of Ragnarok Online" maybe, but I don't see you playing Shin Megami tensei online, which is in the same boat. Allods was anticipated too, good luck with that.

@Dblade As Pingles and ClassicCrime said, this game has a good dev crew with experience and the music is nothing short of amazing.
Being an Alpha player, I found the game to be a killer, pets and mounts are easy to obtain without spending real money, and its an F2P, if you expect a game to be totally free, well welcome to the real world.
As for a generic name, if you were to play and actually take note to the story behind the entire game, you'll see that its a very rich and interesting story, and the name is most fitting. Please try a game before making it seem generic and terrible.
