Informative interview. "The Agency" was shown at E3 2010, but GameSpot doesn't seem to have any new/recent footage of that.
Make the Gunplay really smooth and it might be better then APB (which is not really hard to beat).Ah and it look quit a lot like Team Fortress 2 and Just cause 2 mixed (just saying). @Taffelost: "Sounds absolutely innovative, unique and most of all like fun." I Don't see the innovation or any unique things here,But hey i can see the fun..Will still need to play to see if its good.
I agree with that first minute or so of dialogue, but I don't really know if this game is the one to accomplish this. Just make sure that there is actual player-player conflict. I don't mean PvP. I mean a lasting feeling of competition with other factions. WoW's competition between the Alliance and the Horde isn't quite enough, as there are only two forms of competitions: small raiding parties that might advance on some of the border territories only to be repulsed instantaneously, or in designated "battlegrounds" that seem more like sporting events than actual competition. Neither side loses territory. Make the sides TRULY ebb and flow, like EndWar's basic concept was (not that that was a successful game or anything, but I loved the concept).
Hi mrtoilet, Im also a Coh/CoV gamer have been for 4 years now and i share your opinions, I was wondering since you like CoX have you seen DC Universe, its a CoH-CoV/Heroes Online game for the PS3, i think you should check it out brilliant game, just a shame you cant play as the heroes or villians but making your own and playing along side them is just as good. Just a sugestions for you :)
This game holds a lot of content, just a shame there are only two factions, but as with most mmo's they keep working on them and have regular updates, who knows one update might add another faction into the mix, you can also get addon packs some free some you have to pay for to add even more to the game, its a good way to keep the game newish and a brilliant way for the game designers to milk us for all the game is worth, i love RPG and MMOs, if you do then this is a game to deffinatly think of getting good value for money to with hours of gameplay, doubled if you play both factions (I will).
I love the idea, I'm sick of MMOs like WoW and Age of Conan, so this shows promise, however, it looks kinda average, but I'm definitely going to keep an eye on this.
From what I've read expect $15-$20pr mo. Im a COH/COV player and I do admit this does seem interesting. Sony has a,,.. how shall I say, a disappointing MMOG history. The free beta, if it ever happens will be a must play for me.
Im so sorry for this guys but this game doesn't look good and bring nothing new to genre. I personally wouldn't play it even if its free.
I can't wait to be that cool kid...*phone buzzes* "who did you get a text message from?"..."my spy who was gathering intel...DUHHH!!!"
This is looking awesome. I like the idea of SMS updates from your NPCs. All to do now is hope that it ISN'T pay monthly and that it is going to be sold in Europe!
I really hope its a free mmo, I really dont want to pay for it monthly or w/e. but it looks amazing.
Did he say 10 hours to get a group together? 5 hours to kill a mob? MMOs are nothing like that. I have a feeling this will be a heavily casualized MMO.
@dead888 thats because it is made by sony online entertainment, like you wouldnt see a game made by microsoft on a ps3
I hope those things get steamed out in the beta testing rooster, that sure is always a challenge( to balance classes.) Looks and sounds amazing, cutscenes never impress me much, I would prefer more gameplay footage personally. I also had a good time with SWG before there were any stars to war in lol. Everyone wanted to be a jedi and tried desperately, I preferred buying walkers and pets and pwning rebel scum in the streets. Sorry, I am going way off topic and rambling.
Sounds absolutely innovative, unique and most of all like fun. Let's just hope the hype transforms into a solid game. Been a lot of MMO hyping the last couple of years.
Hal xD Honestly..He is the perfect Western version of Otacon xD sry back ontopic: yeah this game looks good :)
