The small details that gives the character of the PC the run for it's power!
In 1995, when Microsoft released Windows 95 and made computers more mainstream, Microsoft learnt from all game developers and tech experts what computers would do for video games. Sometimes the small details inspired future game developers to do the same in video games and later, MMOs.
The above image is the installation screen of Microsoft's Age of Empires Gold as the person installing it would have to wait until their game was fully installed. It was fully animated with builders constructing building as the game installation progressed.
I've compiled a list and screens (Why? I'm that sad indeed) to show you what the PC offered gamers, let alone, MMO players everywhere a chance to see.
1. The Game Launcher
It's official Atlus is closing NeoSteam in Feburary 2012. This is the NeoSteam last server standing and you can now play the game with double EXP, No Death Penelties and etc. . Official announcement and 'saying your farewell' thread can be found here: http://forums.atlusonline.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=18075&st=0
I enjoyed exploring the world of NeoSteam and the challenge it presented and if you haven't, you can also say your farewell on the same thread.
Other interesting places to explore includes the entire website which explains the story of NeoSteam, What Steampunk is and other interesting bits of information , which can be found here: http://neosteam.atlusonline.com/
As much as I like Maplestory, I think Maplestory isn't showing off what it can do in 2011 compared to what it did and offered players back in 2004.Maplestory is a HUGE world which allows players to player and interact. The mix of pixel art and watercolour based enivornment has attracted alot of interest to many players however it's has caused many problems such as players leaving the game after 50 hours of hard work and returning back because a DS version is out or forcing you to grind to level 200 and setting up private servers which Nexon has made arrested over. I don't mind the hard work but I think Maplestory should do something new in a creative sense towards long time players and their level 200 characters. I noticed that the only updates I see are new classe
Treat the Ranking table like a book of player profile pics.I think it's great that there players trying hard to rank up and to be level 200 however if you're really interesting in see the awesome avatar selection if your just interested to see the players avatar and awesome pixel art. You don't have to play the game toward the end to see it all. It's doesn't make me feel like a mad man like how some guys enjoy looking on facebook at other people's pictures.
I don't know what to say about this but since the recent hidden update on the Drift City Europe Service. I do know that the Drift City client is growing and for the better however it has messed up my client for a bit.No big deal, it's just my laptop was terrible from the beginning. I have an Dell Inspion 1525 which had Vista pre-installed when bought in 2009 however it's was so terrible I downgraded to XP. (I kept the discs, I have windows 95, 98, Xp and Vista). I am a nerd and I can see Drift City isn't for nerds. Anyways, I believe this recently update totally overloads my computer (it doesn't give me the BSOD or anything) to not show any graphics, here's the screen I get and it's give me a white screen. I thought I'll say that I know Drift City
There been some confusion between MMOs and having as many players on screen at once. I made that confusion too.I know this because I did the research myself. I also got interested thinking that MMOs was just loads and loads of models and avatars on screen at once however it seems that the mobile market hasn't have as many MMOs for it. I think MMO doesn't really mean that you have to sit down at house to play an MMO, I think while this term of MMO being 'as many players online on one server', I think an MMO outside is possible however the mechanics would be very different and there would be like loads of problems like street crime, enivornment hazards and people going to work who don't want to play. I think MMO in 10 years time will be like the 'Playstation 9'
Click here to view video! Drift City, a cel shaded based MMO driving game features simple races for masses of players to take part in. Europe Drift City decided to play with the mechanics and to allow players to drive Cement Mixing Trucks. Cement Mixing trucks are seen all over Drift City as traffic however player had the chance to experience what it felt like taking charge of these trucks for a race. It's a shame that they're not cel-shaded to make them fit with the other accessible vehicles in the game. I think this is interesting because the staff were nice enough to give something very interesting (compared to some other freebies) for the community. I know Bigpoint wanted their own Drift City, this version (which removes some features from the other releases), gave the
I've been posting entries like crazy because I'm getting excited about what I'm seeing at the moment. I like the productions in video games that I think it's very convicing to know that companies work hard to produce mechanics and content to make these MMO come alive.
I think MMOs have been doing that strongly for a while and it's something I've been waiting for.
Why this entry?
Previously many MMOs (mainly from Korea) lacked alot of value, while they were playable, I didn't really like them as well. I think looking back know, I think communities have been bombarded by really poor MMOs. Those MMOs are now gone and their been some serious content being release in the past year alone. I think it's something worth watching.
I would say stay tuned to seeing what gets released in the future.
Need for Speed World
Drift Cify Korea (Better believe)
I know there a bunch more.
The Pursuit has been redesigned to a form of an event icon which can be accessed in the world. The game has been redesigned to address the problem of many players having that cop cars have been annoying as players cruise around world for a sunday drive or to take part in collecting treasure for one game mode.
I do think it's lost it's charm a bit of it being a realistic world that this MMO has to offer but I shouldn't really care. I still believe Need for Speed World is about racing and it will always be. I like the fact that this MMO does want to full the world with players to take part in.
