Ok, then you three (Or 2, because I can't tell which side Avaith was on...), run on back to your 3d super elite games. Run back to your awful 'plvl then pk cuz i can' games. Wankers. You make me sick.

;P

And I completeley agree with you, Julius.


You can't tell what side I'm either. I don't believe it was said that the graphics should be 3D--that's what it sounds like you're assuming of us.

My stance is that the graphics are still "dry," that is, boring and uninteresting. Akarra was nice, but that doesn't mean we should use the same graphics.

Many older games (I'm thinking Nintendo 8-bit or SNES) have/had good graphics at the time, but eventually, you WILL tire of seeing them. Should we not strive to do better as we go along?

Doing better doesn't mean breaking what already works; rather it means taking what ideas and concepts work and improving on them.

In any case, it's early in development. I'm sure that's the reason for the graphics being much the same. I don't think anyone wants to see just another Akarra.

And FYI, in general, I don't like 3D games very much, because most tend to be uninteresting and basically clones of every other 3D game in existence.

Extra note: The last good MMORPG that I play that had a 3D aspect was Rose Online, which I can't say I'm impressed with. The best one I played was Ragnarok Online, and that's really a 3D engine with 2D sprites for everything but buildings and terrain.

I once played a 3d game. for a total of about an hour... It was stupid. 2D games are the best. So I'm on your side. And I'm not saying it wasn't a good movie, it was, just needed a little work. I do understand that it was rushed. Also that it could have been better if more time was available. And last of all, I'm quite sure I will be impressed of the game.

I will never tire of playing those games. actually I got a snes off ebay with some classic games after Akarra went down.

How can anyone be unimpressed with the preview?

The last time any of us ever saw anything new with WiA graphics was a whole year ago. I don't know why but the graphics are so attractive and just great. And even if Daria was exactly like WiA I would still play it.

i wouldn't mind another akarra...

and also, many 2d games suck 'cause they're playerworlds and your stuff doesn't show up on your character in many 2d games, tahts why i liked akarra. and some 3d games are very good, like Dark Age of Camelot, which has an awesome pvp system(realm vs. realm, with castles), and generally friendly enviroment when i played it

AND THE PREVIEW ROCKS!
