Lineage 2 now and back then

This won't be a review as I've made review few years back. This is how I feel about the changes of this game. I've started to play at the time of C3 and continued through C4 and C5.
The game back then was amazing - with strong medieval and magic theme, stunning art, amazing music and the gameplay was actually really well balanced and fun. Back then it was very easy to make new friends, play with them and relax. And you can make PvPs at low level and even PKs - don't get me wrong - I don't like to PK players but I don't get upset of being PKed. And its fun when big crowd of newbies chase after a PK. And its fun when somebody tries to PK you and at the end he is at the ground.
What about the grinding that the American players hate so much? Actually for me this was time to enjoy the game, to kill mobs and spent time with friends. More monsters to kill = more time with friends in a party. I don't like doing quests - run to location X talk with NPC Y do a pointless errand, run a lot more. I like to fight mobs and at every level Lineage 2 offers you a lot of different mobs to fight so I don't get bored.
Now about the players strength. Back then you can easily kill mobs at your level. Even level 70 sps could kill level 70-72 mobs - one or two without burning its all mana. The strong ones were the Raid Bosses but even they wasn't this tough as now. And they ran slower ... Now its almost impossible to solo high level monsters - but I like to play solo. I like to play with friends but I like to play solo when I feel it. Now I can't. You need a party of several people to kill a single mob. And some of the classes now are pointless as they are too much nerfed. I remember the time when we with one party fought in LOA and it was so much fun. And at the time of summoners I really like the trains and the train killing.
Now about the art. The new art of the game is soo much WOW like that at times I question myself what exactly am I playing. The old art is stylish, with music matching exactly the location and creating a feeling that you are living in a medieval fairy tail. The new art is flashy, with too much colors and shiny things like sparkling vampires. Lineage 2 was the most beautiful and amazing game, why are they doing this to it? Now at this new locations the feeling is gone and you only get the flashy stuff. And the clothes. Back then the clothes were actually cool and in the theme of the game. Now are sparkling as sparkling ... and those cloaks are ugly and look so artificial. I miss all the starting towns. I won't even talk about the skills and the gameplay after level 80.
With every change now the game feels less and less like Lineage 2 and more and more like WOW. I simply want one thing - server with C3 or C4 on it. And if they like to develop the game to made new territories with stronger monsters.

Now I can't even play for long as I get easily frustrated. I miss the old Lineage2.


And even now when I listen to this I get goosebumps.

Cool upcoming games 2011

Guild Wars 2
Guild Wars 2 is the sequel of the popular MMORPG Guild Wars. The new game will feature new game-engine, changes in character development and better PVP system. It will emphasize more on the massively multiplayer part. Guild Wars 1 was pretty good game so I think Guild Wars 2 will be a hit.

The Exiled Realm of Arborea
The Exiled Realm of Arborea or Tera Online is another promising MMORPG game that will be released this year. It will be somewhat unique with its non-targeted PVP system. Really this click to select and then attack system was getting very boring.

YS Online Trailer

OK, I admit it, the game looks good! I can't understand why the game is down and not available.

YS: The Oath in Felghana

YS: The Oath in Felghana
These days I had the chance to play one awesome Japanese game – YS.
The YS series are several RPG games but here I’ll talk only for YS: The Oath in Felghana. I have no background information about the series, so if you are an old YS fan, don’t shoot at me, those are my first impressions only.
The series are centered at the adventures of Adol, our main hero. As every hero, he is cool, his favorite breakfast is fried monsters and of course he has to save the world and the young lady. Yep, there is a beautiful, blondie young lady to be saved.

Tribal Trouble 2 – browser-based MMORTS

Site: http://www.tribaltrouble2.com/

Do you want to be a Viking? Do you want to govern a tribe and lead an adventurer’s life?



Tribal Trouble 2 is a real time strategy game with cool Vikings Theme. The game has several bad points but overall it is a fun and relaxing experience. I didn’t like the fact that most of the important upgrades need players to spend real money. Too much of them, I think.
Don’t get me wrong, Tribal Trouble 2 s a cool game with many nice features.
