Anyone playing any MMOs?

If so which ones and are they any good? Thinking about getting back into virtual heroin this summer.

I like FF14 a lot. Taking a break for a little while but I plan on resubbing some time.

The game's environments are really, really well done, the music is awesome - the whole thing is presented really well. I like the crafting and most of all I like how other than the main story quests, you can dungeons and battle quests (i dunno what else you call em.. quests that only involve killing and loot) with other people to progress, so that terrible go from here to here to here and then back here fetch and deliver quests are kept to a minimum.

You gotta slog through that shit for a while though. It's not til like level 10 that things start to get better.. before that you're doing that boring fucking run from place to place thing for fucking reason thing..


Another good thing is that you can have ALL classes (fighting classes and crafting classes) on a single character, and can switch between any of them any time you want.
Also, depending on which classes you choose to level, you can unlock a new special class that is a combination of two standard classes. There is LOTS of choice.
Not very much customization though.

Is that Realm Reborn?

If so, that looks really good. I played FF11 for a bit and had a blast when i was playing with friends.

Whats the PvP like? Is it mostly a PvE game?

That is Realm Reborn yes.

It does have PvP I think now.. I've never played it. I think PvP is relegated to an arena type thing and there isn't any open-world PvP stuff (I think? I may be wrong, there were several months I didn't play and didn't read into what has been updated)
So I can't comment on the PvP.

40-100 people doesn't count as massively multiplayer.

Waves and Ex, you guys need to check out Archage.

I mentioned it in the other thread, but no one questioned it.

Very open sandbox style MMO, huge emphasis on open loot PVP, player controlled economy, huge emphasis on things like Guild built and owned castles, player built housing, own ships, naval battles, awesome things like that, the list goes on and on. Crafting and farming and fishing and things of that nature are now actually pretty awesome from how it sounds. The emphasis is taken away from end game, and put more into the content to just actually playing.

Theres a ton of awesome points to talk about with this game, but I'm not actually that knowledgeable about it.

I can almost guarantee there is probably a large sub forum on Reddit for it however. I'd check there. I've got most of my info from a pretty large thread on the misc about it, and everyone thats in beta (they paid 150$ to be in closed beta till the game comes out, 1+ year away) seems very thrilled about it.

all the cool sounding MMOs are not out yet

ESO and FF14 sound really cool but I dont want to start them only to move on to another game soon. I suppose I'll wait.

I still play Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Pretty solid on both PVE and PVP fronts, probably the most overall well-planned since WoW.

Classes are pretty balanced, ones you can both button-mash for average results or completely master with key bindings and/or other gaming hardware.

Rich backstory to draw from, it's fucking Star Wars ffs.

There's ground and space PVP/PVE, and you can pretty much level anyway you like.

The main class storylines are well done, Imperial side being much more entertaining than the Republic, but both sides are pretty fun still.

It's F2P to level up, but the best parts are subscription/token bought.

Ah i forgot about that game. I had a good time leveling up an IA when it first came out. Maybe I will reinstall and see if the F2P stuff is good enough to keep me around and maybe shell out some bucks.
