Hi guys, ever want to have toon that can do like those cool kungfu movies from hong kong with inner strength hits coming from your hands? Or even want to fly around trees like in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon Movie? Well the answer is below.

First of I want to share this upcoming cool Mmorpg, from NCSoft, developed by Team Bloodlust at Korea.
The game setting is orient looking, with little bit westerner influences smack dab in some weird plot.
I had a chance to play out during Korean OBT session not a month ago. From what I've been experiencing, this is certainly one of the new looks at mmorpg. It cleverly fused several aspect of Tera fighting style, Street fighter console kind of combo, and your regular mmorpg. Mind you I can't read nor understand any korean languange at all, so after bashing the game a bit, I kinda figured out what to do in combat. For example, I use kungfumaster class in that game, so I approach a mob, throw opening moves, then the screen pops up with several skills. Now the neat trick to this is that every moves, brings out different result, it can result in another chain opening or just combo finisher. So its very skill action oriented. The graphic is top notch, and the interface is slick albeit I don't know what the heck it suppouse to be :cry: . The story line is very much integrated into the gaming screen, very slick approach there by them. Anyway its due out soon in Korea, and from what the people been buzzing in forum, they are speeding up the localization for NA and EU. The best bet is cbt starting to roll out next year. Here is the link for the fansite, they got alot of stuff there, so check it out http://www.bladeandsouldojo.com

So yeah, we got a very busy months for us twelvian, guildwars 2 and now this.

Anyway thanks all and happy browsing.

the exposure of the legs and the asses...

*drools*

graphics wise it's like Aion...the combat system looks much cooler tho, the enemy reacts appropriately to how the attack is made, much like tekken. would be really cool if you can actually run and jump like ninjas ;D

Hehe I feel ya guys, my avatar pic is from one of their races. Anyway as far as grinding goes, ncsoft did learn alot from aion, so they got rid of those grind till your head explode routine. And they adopted like Tera or gw 2 style of leveling. I can't suggest that if leveling crafting would also yield xp like in gw2, simply because I can't read koreans. But most of the active member at the dojo site, said they say goodbye to those mindless grinding. They want player to delve right into the action. Depth of story or gameplay wise, again my apology to you all, I can't say, the rumor however it adapts to gw2 style. I mean literally both games are under one single publisher. So some techy leaks could be gathered by both studios. The clear distincion on the blade and soul as opposed to gw2, is that blade and soul adapt regular monthly subscription, and it seems that ncsoft wants to lay the smack down into bluehole studio because of Tera. Thus they say they are putting huge resources upward of billion won/millions dollar to make this game one of the ultimate mmorpg to date. And it shows tho how that money being spent.

I hear you - but Tera is VERY grindy I am told, and their system of tapping a mob and millions of people camping quest spawns smells like WoW to me. You will have to excuse me a little - I played WoW since beta, and I have max level characters all classes both Horde and Alliance, and after I ground out the Firelands rep on my third toon I instantly uninstalled the game. I was just SO fed up! I enjoyed my time with WoW - I did - but I have 6 months left of playtime on two accounts - and I am not playing! I just don't have time to grind - I want to PLAY - and to play in WoW you MUST raid, you MUST get gear, you MUST grind rep, repeat repeat repeat. I am too old for that model.

WoW is the king, and 10 million accounts tell me there is a market for grinding - but for me I will play GW2 until they turn off the servers :)

Lol sometimes I wondered how a bikini can protect you from say blow of mace from orcs.….. Btw nice pics Dark. @Stamps yup I feel you, at this moment I really can't say anything, the obt impression that I got is not very thorough, mainly due to language barrier. I will update from time to time if there is worthwhile informations that I could share with you guys.
@Retsgip, yup I agree, to the minimum make it b2p like gw2. But then again given at their development expenditures, I'm not entirely convinced that they will turn into b2p scheme for the rest of the world. As of late though, its getting harder and harder to find good game company that really deliver contents to excellent degree.

As you may know the recent disaster is incurred by Blizzard, all sort of flames even civil lawsuits are being brought into the tables to blizzard. So yeah my point is if this game going to be p2p model, I for one going to really watch how the devs communicating with us players. If they treat us like dirts (diablo 3) then I can say screw off!! If they mimics arenanet guys, I probably give it a spin.

Unlike the weapon racks in Diablo 3, the racks in this game are sure to deliver whites on your screen 100% of the time.
