Default Vindictus

Newest Info:
RELEASED (EPISODE 4)
http://vindictus.nexon.net/News/Cont...ontentNo=009eu
Release Date:
Currently announced for a 2010 Summer to Q4 2010. (Anywhere between July to December)
It (might) be part of Nexon's change to "Blockparty", a social networking gaming site. (Isn't that funny? It won't affect anything with the games, though.)

So anyway, Nexon (yeah, the unmentionable name , keep reading though) is releasing a new game sometime in Summer 2010 or later, which was first named "Mabinogi: Heroes". Now, usually this wouldn't interest me in the slightest, especially with the name and the ...bad, sponsor, but seriously.

For a free MMORPG, this thing will be incredible.



The gameplay is realtime-action-hackandslash-etc, and...well, it runs off the source engine, so that should give some ideas. Even though the gameplay just sounds "click rapidly and win", characters doing so usually end up dead. Rolling, dodging, working together and using the environment seem to help a lot. There are three clases: Two Sword Class, Sword and Shield, and Magician. There will be 2-3 more released eventually. At the moment, the classes are gender based, but they are expected to be added with all genders soon. (I.e, Males are Two Sword, Girls are Sword and Shield and Magician)


Bosses will appear periodically, and are generally...huge. The game even has something of a mimic to a HOOKSHOT that you can drag/hold down enemies with in some points, and most items can be picked up and thrown. There is some gameplay of characters stomping enemies into walls, pushing barrels to escape a boss, etc.


Characters, while...borderline weeaboo, are heavily detailed:
The coloring related to clothing and armor is very free (because this is Nexon, this'll be where the money is made, of course,) but there are some interesting and bad sounding things.

For instance, if you forget to repair your armor until it breaks...It literally breaks and falls off, regardless of what your doing or where you are. You'll be fighting enemies in your underwear if you're not careful.






The game is currently released here http://heroes.nexon.com/?skip=0 in Korea I think, but we (again) just got it recently announced for a 2010 release. If I hear more about it I'll update here, though.

I heard someone compare it to Demons Souls, which is exactly like what it seems to me like.

If you can play a source game of any kind on good to great settings Vindictus should run fine apparently. I need to get my new graphics card by the time it comes outttt

This looks fun. Hopefully, there won't be constant updates. Maybe one every 3 months...I'd like that a lot.

Even if it just happens to be a mindless button masher, it's a mindless button masher with friends!

A small payment of $3.50 will unlock the ability to move left AND right! What a deal!

Actaully, the payment they were looking at is the same thing they do for other games: Items that can give you AMAZING COOL THREADS BENEFITS, or just full revival tokens for those who suck too much to have friends.


Unless Nexon screws it up... Which I wouldn't put it past em.

I imagine that most the stuff you have to pay for will be kinda frivolous in the first 3 months or so, but shit will just go downhill from there as it gets popular. Also even if it's just aesthetic changes, they could pull a DFO where you can't change your appearance in the fucking slightest without paying a stupid amount. And you had to GAMBLE what you pay for. I mean what the fuck.

Yeah; I can definitely agree with you there. People just suck the shit up because apparently mommy/daddy supports their gaming addiction so they don't have to worry about squandering away their money bit by bit. It's regretable cause I actaully ENJOY Dungeon Fighter Online a bit.




Though, this is co-done by devCat, and Mabinogi actaully IMPROVED. (You had need to pay for transforming, leveling, or doing the mainstream quests originally, but they realized this was ridiculous so they convinced Nexon to change it all.)


If they use the Mabinogi method, then I won't be worried. Mabi's system isn't perfect but it's better than DFO's. ._.
