Fly For Fun.

So I’m finally through it: My review of FlyFF. Actually this is my 3rd time trying FlyFF and I really didn’t like it the two first, but this time wasn’t that bad.
Neuz 2009-08-07 14-47-59-39
But even though they have fixed a lot of the bugs I couldn’t stand back then there are still downsides with FlyFF, Like the grind, the dated graphics or the fact that for such a huge populated game most of us look alike because of bad customization, which really they should change put some more hairstyles or colors in there.

According to my friend who actually played FlyFF for a longer period of time stated that it’s a game you need to get used to. According to me, any game you need to get used to is simply ignoring flaws and getting addicted to the community.
Neuz 2009-08-10 16-09-07-90
So it may not be for everyone, but that shouldn’t be a reason not to try it. In fact FlyFF does have some upsides to it that even I look forward to. They have game features such as flying, housing, pets and at higher levels you even get dungeons.

But to me, FlyFF is flawed. It’s nearly impossible to decorate your own house without cash shop since each thing costs over a million in in game money. The town is large, and to find out when and where your quests are you either need to spend half your game play running back and forth to town, and then through it. But of course it has a wiki but how fun is checking the Wiki every 3rd minute to find out where your monster is, or even if you get quests that level.
Neuz 2009-08-10 20-10-00-81
Well as you can see I’m not that positive when it comes to this game, and it was boring at the beginning where you need to struggle through 15 levels of being a Vagrant but again I do see the potential. Getting my job and skills made it more fun and Gpotato offers a lot of events, and it has a huge community, and then theres flying at level 20 which is pretty darn fun.

Flyff would probably be the type of game I’ll sit and force myself through it waiting for the promise it’ll actually get better, but honestly there are better options to keep myself entertained then Flyff. Maybe if there were more people at lower levels I’d actually enjoy going through the grind hell, maybe thats why I’d rather play a game like scions of fate then FlyFF.

Vanilla Gate

bg02_1Vanilla Gate fell into my lap by accident, my friend was asking about it and I had no idea what it was. But none the less it’s cute, and it really does look interesting.

Vanilla Gate is a mix of an MMORPG, a console game and an education system. There is the typical interesting back story that everyone should read but you don’t get to see much of it in the beginning of the game.
client 2009-08-11 18-48-26-85
Sadly, there isn’t any town to walk around in and talk to NPCs and so on: You need to choose Game Mode. There are Team, Single and Quest. Within Team and Single Mode there are other different modes of how you play the game: Time Attack, Taking Flag, Bumming Run, Death Match, Sudden Death, Crazy and Vanilla King.

I spent most of my time running around in the Quest Mode, there are different quests you choose from and in that quests there are several different maps you can go through and you can repeat the same one several times.
client 2009-08-11 18-54-41-75
But why want to repeat? Well, each quest map will want you to collect all the letters of a word. Simple words like World, Island, and Ill. When you get all the letters you’ll get a card that will reward you with things such as EXP, money (bread looking thing). But it’s not always you’ll find all the letters and finish the quest at the same time so you repeat. Great thing with it, is even if you don’t finish in one round: Next time it still counts as you already got the letter.

Vanilla Gate don’t got classes, you can buy skills and change weapon as you please. This way you can have both melee and magic skills on one character: Bad thing is that there is only room for 3 skills at the same time so it’s important that you choose wisely.
client 2009-08-11 19-02-10-51
Then there’s the pet system, their cute, their adorable but they take time to get. Why? Because when you buy them as an egg you can’t even use them. You need 10 ore looking things to evolve it into a kid (They say kid, but it’s not like a human child. Just a kid pet) These ores you can get from quests, and you can buy them from the shop: But either way it will take a long time before you end up with a pet.

Overall, I honestly think it’s a game worth to try. Especially if you like other MMORPGs like Tales Runner or Grand Chase. Vanilla Gate might not be as fast paced as Tales Runner, nor as PvP related as Grand Chase but it’s built up the same way and definitely worth a try.

What made me Like Vanilla Gate?

What made me Dislike Vanilla Gate?

– Randomly threw me into Window Mode with no option to get it back unless I restart the game.

Florensia

Florensia is one of those games that’s not really cute, but still has those few cute sides by it. I actually was really nervous whetever or not I should post about it but honestly I think it has the cute sides to attract most girls.
FlorensiaEn 2009-07-31 06-01-26-90
So what makes me think it’s so cute? It has some really cute characters, and some less cute. But it still have that half normal half chibi looks that end up attracting both parts.

The fact they have super huge hand is kind of funny, but some consider that as cute.
FlorensiaEn 2009-07-31 10-09-44-82
Florensia has the bright and wonderful graphics, it has the adorable monsters and even thought they use fancy names such as nobles it still have the typical classes: But they have something special. They have Boats, you can build and customize your own boat and set out to sea with it. Kill monsters or other boats out there.

That is probably the one thing that turns off typical MMOers, but I find it quite fun. Even if you dislike it it’s not something you have to do, because your land character and your boat have different levels and skills. Thus if you get your character up to level 40, your boat will still be level 1.
FlorensiaEn 2009-07-31 13-49-44-62
The artwork of Florensia should easily hit the wallpapers, but a lot of the icons in game are dull, boring and looks like it belongs in a different century. But I guess it fits the theme, after all theres pirate ships and big ass dresses. It feels like your in a different time, not just a different world.

I actually choose an Noble because I thought they were cutest, and as my love for Magic won and I ended up walking around with my hand raised and a light hovering over it which honestly looked gay: It was still cool, and rather great looking that you could choose between typical mage skills, and using a long thin fencing sword with some magic skills attached to it and I’m sure the other classes too have more then one skill tree to choose from.

What made me Like this game?
– Fast recovery
– Cute monsters
– Tons of drops
– Amazing graphics
– Unique ship system
– Original Skill Icons

What made me Dislike this game?

– To much conversation for each quest.
– Takes time to learn
– Some icons are ugly (Like equipment)
– No jumping
– Quests don’t give as much EXP

I don’t quite know if it’s my new kittens or something else but I just went through the most confusing 5minute phase of my entire life with a game.

I read about it and it sounded like a typical MMORPG, I signed up and suddenly they made me choose a class and I could talk to NPC’s in the browser and I just had a HUUUGE question mark on my face whetever or not this was a browser game or not.
1248816043_32808188
Two minutes in the forum and I found out some news I got really eager to learn. Cloud Nine is the remake of Holic, it’s named Holic2 in Korean, and Lunatia in Japanese. Either way it’s the upcoming new version of Holic, but it’s said to be very different from the actual Holic they have just taken pieces of Holic and improved it into a hole new game!

Cloud Nine will have a lot of different game features and man it looks tasty.
– Monster Transformation System
Transform into monsters, get their stats and power!
– Pet System
A friend to help by your side.
– Craft System
Loot, Mining, Fishing, and Gathering.

They also going to get an collector system with Monster Cards, Guild Houses, PvP and on top of that their also showing off a new race called Matsuka which looks like a hybrid between a cat and a human (Neko for us Anime lovers)

But sadly, there is no set date for when closed beta will be coming, but I’m sure going to keep you guys posted. In the meanwhile you could always drop by their forum and take a look at their minigames or god knows what else they stirred up for the old loyal fans while they wait.

Qworld

I never tried Qworld before simply because it was made by Perfect World, and since most games from Perfect World usually have A LOT in common and simply feel like a cheap rip off of lazy work and greedy people who want to take advantage of your wallet.
ElementClient 2009-08-05 15-46-21-31
Well because of this I had some expectations from the game, and I have seen the trailers both Ether Saga and Qworld had skills, or pets in the trailer which I knew very well came from Perfect World. So you should have seen the disappointment when I could not walk into the water, O yes forget shortcuts you would only get stuck if you tried walking over weird shaped landscape or water.

But what Qworld does have to offer is a change of scenery, I by mistake ended up taking a quest that threw me out on adventure for half an hour spending 5minute or so in each town some were plain, some were simply pretty.
ElementClient 2009-08-05 16-45-30-09
At first I thought the fact they had adorable pets in town as a great cuteness factor, but as the trip continued, I found out they had just been lazy because the exact same animal were in every town.

And then Sadly Qworld isn’t even on an American nor an Europe server yet so with them having so many servers and the huge time difference you might feel lonely till you get to higher levels.
ElementClient 2009-08-05 16-35-34-06
Fun thing was that their raccoons sounds like cats but else then that I didn’t quite enjoy the first 10 levels as a Rookie. And 10 levels doesn’t sound so bad now does it? Well it does if you end up using a decade killing one monster at a time, and you get quests to kill 20-30 of them.

Yes, my time in Qworld was more like a nightmare grindfest then enjoyable cuteness and just as I was only 1 level from my first job change I got hit by the huge truck of having to kill 50 monsters.
ElementClient 2009-08-05 16-58-29-40
But I’m not dumb, I can see the potential it may have: Pet system, Mount system, Production, Auto Walk, people are already level 100 so it has to be active at some point. But besides the hole it having a bit cuteness in it, I wouldn’t recommend anyone to play it.

If you don’t mind the grind, and you think it looks interesting I’ll rather point my finger toward Ether Saga then sticking with Qworld.
ElementClient 2009-08-05 16-43-42-42
After all, to me it almost feels that since Ether Saga came 2nd it’s kinda like the outcome of Qworlds failure as a game for at least Ether Saga has some more to offer.

I was going to wait til my job change before I added anything about Qworld, because god knows maybe it goes super easy as fast as you get a job and it becomes enjoying. But if you want to try it out: Go do it yourself.

What made me Like Qworld?
– Amazing skill Graphics
– Auto Walk
– Everyone gets a Pet
– Could transform into animals.

What made me Dislike Qworld?
– Hair change with equipment
– No Stat Points
– No Swimming
– Ugly map
– Asian Letters on Minimap
– Heavy grind from low level
– Boring quests

Dream Of Mirror Online

Dream Of Mirror Online was simple adorable from the start and out, I knew from the first sight of monsters that this game was something I would really enjoy. The monsters I first met were some cute fat pigs named PuPu and they got hatched out of eggs whenever they spawned something I haven’t seen before.
DOMO 2009-08-06 16-04-38-26
Since I had just been playing Qworld I felt the ease of DOMO, unlike that other game and other games I have been playing lately it had an easy low level grind and killing. In fact it was as easy as a walk in the park.

DOMO offers a lot of things I’d like to get into, like Flying, Pets, PvP and Crafting, Or even the simple Combo system that made grinding so much better but I won’t get to much detail into those things right now. And this way I might have an excuse to waste a working day playing DOMO just to write a post about pets and flying and other things to do in DOMO.
DOMO 2009-08-06 16-39-37-85
Each race of the DOMO world have their own back story, I decided for the Felin, a more sexy then cute looking person with cat ears and apparently we were mighty dragons once upon a time. I almost was tempted to make every other character simply to find out their story too. So, did I mention that DOMO is one of the few games that manages to smoothly have your typical MMO game play and throw in some main quest story videos? Yeah, isn’t that the best?

One of the reasons I decided to quit this game the last time I tried was the annoyingly huge first main city that wasn’t just messy but ugly too. But sadly back then I didn’t have the brain enough to figure out they had an AutoWalk system so I didn’t need to walk around getting lost every time I could simply click on the map where I wanted to go and sit back and relax.
DOMO 2009-08-07 02-30-24-25
But one thing that sure made DOMO interesting was the fact you could tame any monster and end up with a mini version of them to help you in battle. Of course this isn’t the pet system, the pet system is prettier and have an evolution feature and an mount feature.

The Destiny system is quite interesting, they have “destined relative, enemy and true love” It’s quite funny how you walk closer and closer to someone whose a true match to you and this red string of fate shows up connecting you two. And if your one for not turning game sounds off you’ll hear this heartbeat racing faster and faster as closer you get to the person.

It’s a pity that skills are weapon connected, considering how you can choose a main job and then a 2nd job. I’d so love being a super damage mage and then having heals to back me up instead I want damage on top of damage. Super fun trust me.

What made me Like DOMO?
– Auto Walk
– A lot of graphic change option
– Can remove black lines
– Background Story
– Tame any monster
– A lot to choose from in jobs (14 jobs available)
– “Destiny” System
– Repeatable music
– Can choose 2nd jobs
– Chests around the world which may give you alchemy recipes

What made me Dislike DOMO?
– Bad Maps
– Equipped items still take inventory space
