I only played my first month, but I really enjoyed the game. It has some unique features for a MMO, definitely worth checking out IMO.

I hope EA doesn't buy it. Really wanted another dreamfall, one if the greatest games I've ever played. Never understood their determination to break into the mmo market. The major players of that market have it locked down. They shined the most with their adventure games that they put aside to focus on more mmo games.

I really loved the theme of the game...in fact it is an exact copy of a D20 modern pen and paper RPG I ran a few years ago, though I did only have the Templars and Illuminati...not really even sure what lore they dug the Dragons out of. But I had magic work through their weapons, super natural out breaks that they would have to go investigate...even a magic teleportation system to zip them around the world fast.

Makes me wonder if one of the writers was a former player in my group...

However, despite the awesome theme I found it had to really get to know any one in the game and never was able to get into any active player organizations (forget what they called them) at best I would get two people to group up to do quests meant for single players, but then most of the time I would never see them online again.

That and the game play was basically like FF13...just keep pressing the 1 key until you can press the 2 key and then go back to spamming the 1 key. Selecting what skill combinations to have active was where the actual strategy and skill was.

Well, since I own the game now I might as well get it installed again.

Interesting. I'll wait and see if it gets less than $30, then I'll buy. The demos and trailers looked interesting, but definitely not monthly sub interesting. EVE may be the only game I'd give money too on a monthly basis, and I still haven't pulled the trigger on that one (loved the 2-week trials though).

they are down to their last dime and were looking for ways to go forward. one option was to sell the company, which is why they retained a merger firm over a month ago. right now it looks like they have gone with a business model change and passed up a proposed offer from EA.
