For: PC

Take a look at it people; it actually rivals World of Warcraft as many people say... it's only Asia exclusive so far (got a closed-beta account already) and it seems very impressive...

how impressive?

that impressive

well as the description says, you can fight in land, air and sea... and similar to WoW, there are tons of quests in order to level up "easily".

showing this to you guys, maybe you want to wait for this one.

I haven't gotten the game yet lawl, the cbt just started yesterday, and the torrents are DAMN slow... gonna get the actual CD (4 cds) tomorrow probably from the main office which is hosting PW here...

as a hands on experience, here's one; a GM in Level-Up Ph. He's the reason on why I got a closed beta account =P

now if u excuse me, I'll be playing WoW for the moment, cause' I have no means of getting to that office for now XD

I'll be posting up probably Ragnarok Online 2 as well... which is A HELL A LOT BETTER that the original...

sure if you like cutesy graphics... Perfect World takes teh win though for serious graphics... I'm gonna post up a screenie maybe tomorrow when I play it... if I manage to successfully install it as well... damn 4 CDs...

lol, PW is similar to WoW; you use WASD as movement controls... hmm

oh btw, the makers of PW (Perfect World if you didn't realize =P) are not from Korea or Japan, from from China... oooohhh

Meh, WoW was far too easy and unbalanced. The balancing issue I suppose follows every mmo, but wow was especially bad in that respect. I may be a little biased though since my first character was a shaman and after working really hard to try to make him raid viable at anything other than healbot, I got a swift kick to the balls as the expansion came out.

At any rate the mythology of this game looks interesting, the character creation seems intruiging. The classes are kind of meh, just basic classes you find in any mmo, the werebeast looks interesting, but kind of straightforward.

anyways my question to you is how are the classes? Any particular ones that seem to attract the noobs? Which ones are the hybrids and do they seem to perform ok with what you've seen?

edit: noticed you just mentioned you havent installed it yet = P

Let the farming begin for PW, before it even starts. XD

Anyways, you know I like the cutesy graphics more than the serious stuff already...

Bump... I apologize for the double post, but I finally played it and have screenies... stupid me for not ticking the "hide UI" checkbox when getting a screenshot... and yes, print screen button doesn't work.

My character, no way am I gonna place my "real" face on a character.

As you see in the upper left part, my class is Yu Mang; the hunters/archers of the bunch... oh, why am I flying? It's a "racial trait" this class has. I haven't tried the other classes yet on what theirs is. Their is a limitation on how long I can stay aloft, but it's pretty useless this early anyway, except for "get to the top of the platform to get this thing/kill these creeps which spawn no where else" quests... later eventually, in pvp/raids, I would like to see how it actualyl goes out...

Stats are as follows - Con for health and MP; also raises Magic Def and Physical Def as well... Int is for Magic attack damage, 4got what else its for. Str is for melee attack damage, also raises Physical Def (dunno which increases greater), Dex is for ranged attack, accuracy, and evasion (I think evasion, will check/update next time)


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v220/Jetricson/2007-05-2818-13-40.jpg
Yes, I can attack while flying... though it doesn't really show ._.

Feign death ability =P

"Don't hate me because I'm beautiful" pose... (lawl, not real name)
Oh yeah... the poses have a cooldown o_O


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v220/Jetricson/2007-05-2818-25-09.jpg
Some actual fighting? It's not that similar to WoW: in WoW you keep attacking even if you move around and jump around; here you can't =/, you gotta keep on attacking, move away, then attack again.

Name translation could use some work XD


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v220/Jetricson/2007-05-2818-27-00.jpg
Some more actual fighting... I only have 3 skills as of now btw; some charged shot, some "double shot", and the "travel back to home place" spell... with an excrutiating 1 hour cooldown.


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v220/Jetricson/2007-05-2818-31-08.jpg
Hark, a fellow Perfect World-er... somewhat hawt? =/ XD


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v220/Jetricson/2007-05-2818-36-40.jpg
Again with the names...


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v220/Jetricson/2007-05-2818-41-34.jpg
Nothing, just an npc... I'm in a city btw o_O...


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v220/Jetricson/2007-05-2818-53-09.jpg
The quests system; yeah I took a lot... dunno if there's a max limitation on how many quests you have active... oh, that wolf cub there is an npc, not a creep XD



how is the gameplay? WoW-like... battle? not so much... Camera? Could use a damn improvement; your left click is the "click to where you go"... the only real way to adjust camera angles is right click and mouse wheel unlike WoW. The settings I played on was the extreme low settings btw; it went pretty smoothly... when I maxed it, it was lagging like crap...

comment away boys, and possibly some girls who are interested... will post up more screenies (decent ones) next time.

Is this one of those MMORPG's that you have to pay monthly to play?

lol a weak game engine. Sounds like a valiant attempt, but falling short atm.

Jet

yeah... shame... will TRY to play it again... I've overestimated it =/ though the details on the face are extremely well, will TRY to take a screenshot then XD

@Kenny: The settings are low because the PC stats suck... so it might be better with a decent PC

Settings? I was talking about a weak game engine...You know, like how the game's run rather than graphical interfaces.

The space comes from graphical interface requirements though. lol
