Wildstar, anyone?

All right, this isn't out yet BUT I had a chance to get some playtime at a local game event and it is looking good, if a little on the cartoony side, but that's part of its charm.

I've also been taking a look at some of the videos on the Wildstar YouTube channel and they are hilarious! I suggest seeing Meet the Exiles; Meet the Dominion; Protostar Housing; and Paths. Carbine Studios has really put some serious time and effort into making this a FUN game to play, and I don't think it will be invaded by the Excel Spreadsheet Game Modeling bunch who seem to infest many other MMORPG games.

I would keep an eye on this one, even if it isn't out yet.

Besides it being hosted by the dreaded NCSoft. Yeah, the game looks fun. Agollo, myself and even Pep, though Pep twitches alot at it having anything to do with NCSoft. We've been watching the game for awhile, tho none of us have gotten a chance to jump into the beta.

I've been watching this, got my name in for Beta and everything... looks like fun.

Be Well!

Yeah, the videos look funny and such, and I know someone who is in the beta and they say it's fun... however, I do have to agree with Dread's comment about how Pep's feelings on the matter... it's NCSoft... I may not be twitchy about it per-se, but I am somewhat loathe to give any coin to NCSoft after the bull$#!^ they pulled with CoH. That's why I won't play Guild Wars either... though there is also the fact I'm somewhat burnt out on 'sword and sorcery' settings as a whole as well.
In the end, if it ends up being a really good game, I might grudgingly play myself a bit to see if NCSoft has any chance to redeem themselves. This is more likely to happen if I can get a beta preview of course. =^_^=

There is a BBB complain on file, in which I state that I am no longer willing to do business with NCsoft.

Outside of the humorous videos, it seems like another MMO. The path thing seems interesting, but I don't know if it'd be continually interesting or would lose its novelty.

Oh, Aurin don't just have bunny ears. You can put cat ears on them. ;)

I surely do. I am sorry that Carbine is hooked up with them. But, understanding it's a NCSoft game and what that may entail down the line, well, I can still play it and enjoy it, and hopefully Phoenix will arrive before NCSoft axes Wildstar, and I can transfer my allegiance to that on my own terms.

*Pounces Mewkychan* Well said.
*pounces AK* Yay!
*Sticks one kitty ear and one bunny ear on AK's noggin*

*pulls ears off, switches them with bunny tail and kitty tail* >_>/ @.@

*pulls off Pep's ears, replacing them with a horses tail and a puppy ear, then plants a clown nose on Pep's nose as a finishing touch*

great, now I'm all confused as to which ears are actually mine! :P their last wildstar wednesday post seems to show they aren't just listening to beta feedback, but they are actually changing game mechanics based on the feedback. That's hopefully a good sign that Carbine won't be putting out just another standard MMO. It's got potential with the combat system and paths to be fun. Though, the latest info on Elder Scrolls Online has that looking really nice. Like a true successor to the Elder Scrolls series and not WoW with an Elder Scrolls skin. Plus, they definitely have cats in there! Khajiit ftw! :D

=O_O= Space Kitties!

It does have a nice graphical design, with plenty of humor in the videos we've seen, although how much of that humor is actually ingame will be seen later. <_<;;

NIN = Neko Identification Number, which is stamped on all removable kitty-parts. They all check out.

o.o I suppose the question is, will Wild Star cost money? NCsoft will let it exist for a year before killing it.. if you have to pay $60, or so for a copy, then I'm not giving them my money just to have them NCsoft me for the 4th time. (there are STILL retailers trying to sell box copies of Tabula Rasa...)

If the game is actually ftp with no upfront cost, I'll possibly give it a go.

<.< also, keep an eye on Titan ICON project from codewalker, I hear they'll have missions in soon... >.>

Mewkychan's picture

Just wondering.

Yep. There will be a price tag. Not sure if the exact price has been settled upon, but one site says, $59.99 for the box, then $14 a month for a sub.

No idea, Mewky. I wouldn't think so, unless they have their profiles set to public.

Ok. So, so far, we have Agollo, Amkit, Anna Puma (& Friend), FXRenamon, Pep and Me(Myrr), are going to play. We all have our preorders and are waiting on headstart.

We'll be on the Nexus Server. I already reserved the LoC guild name, ^_^.

Hope more kittehs & friends, come join us. It's a fun game.

Oh, and we'll be Exiles, since they get Aurins. Pep wants to be an Aurin, I have to choose something else, cause I'm going to play a medic.

PepCat's picture

Wait, I'm playing this? >_>

Nobody informed me at all. <_<

*looks at preorder* >_> Oh, that....

Okay, guess I'm playing then. <_<;;

:P

Seeyas ingame. o.o\m/

Myrr's picture

They published the server list today, and there's no Nexus server, so instead, we'll be on the Orias server.

Any kittehs out there, who are sitting on the fence, we have buddy passes for 7 days each. So, come join us. Just send a message on steam to one of us. Amkit, Myrr, Pep, Sleepy Kitty, Anna Puma, or FXRenamon. I can vouch for getting a pass from either me or Pep. The rest have to speak for themselves. So, again, the game is packed full of fun. Come give it a try.

American Kitty's picture

my buddy pass is available for any kitty that wants to try.

Puma's picture

Did I miss the bandwagon to give it a try? I had a busy week this week. 7th through 15th.

Myrr's picture

Are you on Steam, Puma? If so, send me a msg & I'll give you a buddy pass. I'm Myrr on steam.
