View Full Version : Anyone Thinking About Jumping Over to This?

I looked at the home page for Hero's Journey last night, and read a couple of the threads posted here about it. At first I thought it would be neat, but then I remembered how bored I got with LOTRO, as it seemed like everyone was just playing a game and not interacting with one another. Part of the appeal of GSIV for me is that after hunting, I have to rest to absorb XP, and when I rest it creates opportunity to interact with other players, and vice-versa.

I guess I sort of envisioned a command line interface (like GS4), but with a graphical representation of what I entered in the command line. I don't know if I can explain it exactly, but it's kind of like KILL ROLTON is entered on a command line like it is in GSIV, but instead of describing the result in a text format, it would actually show the action in a window above the command line with different variations of the same KILL theme. I sort of envisioned movement in the HJ in the same way, that is if I want to walk north, the room changes in the graphical portion of the screen...Not a real-time movement. I don't know...Whatever.

What are your thoughts on this game?

what game..

I'm willing to try it if 1) they let current Simu players get free crack at the beta testing, 2) make a package deal as far as subscriptions.

But seeing as how it's run by Simu, I don't have much faith in it working well, let alone releasing before my grandchildren leave high school.

I believe his comment was sarcasm as it will probably never come to fruition.

Oh, totally missed that.

Yea... I used to be an HJ nut-swanger... but to tell you the truth, I don't know if I'd even try it (IF it comes out).

daaaaam you backlash.

IF it comes out, I'll likely try it and hate it.

It's never coming out.

When it comes out there will be so many BETTER games out.

StarGate Worlds
Star Trek MMO
Age Of Conan
and a ton of other lesser knowns

It isn't ever coming out.

Though... at the rate the Beta is going, I'm not sure Age of Conan is either.

MMOs are really hard on small companies unless they're very creative (Three Rings design).
