Perfect World 2 CH Character Customization and Opening Zone

Customization Roaming Look

Main Site Sign Up

I showed you PW2 a week ago in the MMO show. But with so many other games that came first. I didn't get a chance to even get into this game until now. For starters you need a Perfect World Chinese account. Most of you have those already now.

You can refer to this video for a PWE account https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94ZHF2muTjw

Character customization is what I come to expect from PWE. it seems they took a page from Black Desert. And made it simple but robust. You don't have as many areas as the first version. But it retained all of the right things for us to meddle with.

I'm not sure what style this drawing is. They seemed to be going for a extremely slim look this time around. In fact thats the default and you need to edit it away. Just to make a character that looks like they don't need a sandwich. Once in game it looks and sounds like its predecessor. But with a more anime feel this time around. Attacks are better and the back rounds are better. And that forever moon jump is back. Stay tuned for a review based off of a few days of play.

    SMITE's new god, Sylvanus, rocks a treant mount

    Filed under: , , , , , , , ,

    SMITE's patch notes earlier this week whispered of Sylvanus, Keeper of the Wild, and today, the new god has been officially revealed in a brand-new video.

    The antlered, Pan-like god is a protector of nature and woodland creatures who rides around on a treant because he can. Wisp-based regens, tree-themed roots, and AoE poisons serve to bolster his teammates and annoy his enemies.

    Enjoy the first look at Sylvanus below.

    [Thanks, Sorenthaz!]

    Your worship of EverQuest Next's deities will shape the world

    Filed under: , , , , , ,

    The gods of Norrath are slated to return for EverQuest Next, and who players choose to worship will have a profound effect on the game itself.

    Lead Content Designer Steve Danuser penned a lore blog to introduce Veeshan and the Nor'I for the upcoming fantasy MMO. He said that the team is striving to stick to the "thematic core" of Veeshan for her reimagining: "Veeshan looms large in our story. It wouldn't be an EverQuest game without her!" And while Veeshan is well known by fans, the Nor'l is a new figure, the world spirit of Norrath. The Nor'l gives birth to mortals and flows through the entire world, communicating only through song.

    "Your actions in the world determine who controls territory and resources, and one of those key resources is the belief of Norrath's inhabitants," Danuser said. "How strong will Veeshan's influence grow after the Combine return to Antonica? Will the Nor'I be protected or exploited? These are questions that you'll get to decide through the choices you make in game."

    PlanetSide 2: Tramell Isaac out, Bill Yeatts in

    Filed under: , , , , ,

    PlanetSide 2 is losing one of the most public faces of its team but will be replacing him with another well-known figure from SOE.

    Senior Art Director Tramell Isaac announced today that he will be leaving SOE for a new opportunity. "I've had a blast working with you guys all these many months. I will certainly miss you all," he wrote.

    However, Isaac said that he's leaving his position in good hands, as former H1Z1 Art Director Bill Yeatts will be stepping into the role: "Bill was on the PS2 team from start to ship so he is very well versed in what is and is not PlanetSide 2. He is running the show now and he may contradict some of the 'rules' I set in the past, but that is now his prerogative."

    Isaac is moving over to Boss Key Productions to become that studio's art director.

    Can someone recommend a good point-and-click MMO?

    Games Played: Runescape 1, 2 and 3, Priston Tale, Priston Tale 2, Dungeon Siege, Aika Online, Aura Kingdom, Neverwinter, Cloud Nine, Dragon Saga, Dragon Nest, Eden Eternal, Path of Exile, Diablo 2 & 3.

    Preferred Genres (Fantasy, Sci-Fi, etc.): Fantasy

    Pricing Model: F2P. Don't mind cash shop

    Combat Type: Point and click.

    Preferred Perspective: Third person

    Graphics Preference: Doesn't matter

    Released or Upcoming: Either.

    So ive been having some major trouble trying to find a very specific type of point and click MMO. Ive been playing Priston Tale off and on for over 10 years and now the game is extremely dated. The things I loved about the game were the:

    A) combat system - no targeting required, and you can take out mobs instead of 1 targeted monster at a time

    B) Point and click - Extremely simple. Don't have to use WASD keys and when clicking around places, it wasn't like walking on invisible blocks. it felt natural.

    C) camera - this ones a little thing but whenever you wanted to move the camera around the character, you could either use left and right arrow buttons OR move the mouse to the far left or right of the screen and it would rotate.

    Ive tried about 8 MMOs over the last week and Cloud Nine was the only one that was pretty much identical in gameplay but the combat system was complete garbage. So if anyone knows of any games that are similar... it would be much appreciated.

    Also, I do realize the things I like in an MMO are hard to come across in newer games and that Im pretty much out of luck, but it doesn't hurt to ask.
