... WOW!  Looks like a Final Fantasy Movie!

So it's like Second Life but combat and a MMO, you can create own building?   The visuals are amazing, that's for sure!

I really like the environment changes on the fly, how that will translate into real game will be interesting.  If it's even half of what is here, it will be very impressive!

Hey McBain, congrats I think on your new found free time.

As for current MMO that OS members are playing, well Dungeons & Dragons is the current active MMO I am in.  We have 2 other OS members (both members here) and good thing it's Free to Play/Pay to Play.  The contents is rich and the game play is great, melee combat is actually fun [looking at your MxO!].  You can go a very long way and not pay any money, and if you work efficiently and grind with alternate characters can even get lots of free purchase points to buy content.

Well me, Rei, Ija and Asu are all Aion players but the servers are split between NA/EU which is pretty lame.

Ah, just like DDO.  They have two Europian servers, but Australians get put into the US servers.

Are you guys still playing this Cloud?
I haven't really had the urge to play in a couple months now and I ended up letting my sub slip at the end of February cause I couldn't justify paying for something I'm not playing.  I don't know.. aside from the aerial flight, Aion doesn't really have anything else that every other MMO doesn't and it just got to be too much of a grind-fest.  That and the economy of the game is not geared towards the casual player at all.. when you get into the higher levels everything is so expensive and there are soo many money sinks that if you're not one of those people who are playing for 10 hours a day you're kinda hooped.

A lot of these so called free to play games are not really free at all. Technically they are, as long as you don't mind not winning. DDO is better than most. You can play a toon very realistically up to level 10 or 11, and you can earn points by completing quests that you can spend to buy some of the pay to play quests. You can also leave at any time for a bit, and when you come back, pick up where you left off, unlike some of the PVP games where you come back to find your account basically dead.

I never played Aion, so I can't speak for or against it. DDO is complex enough to hold my attention, and it is constantly expanding. Tactics, character builds, different ways to be effective with different classes, or even within the same class; I'm still learning how to play after 5 months. :)

I still play, casually, with Ija and Asu. Part of a little Legion we started up.

With MMOs, I generally don't let the grind get to me (i.e. I don't do it, no matter how much the games "calls" for it). Could care less about double xp weekends and instance runs, I pop in every once in a while, shoot some arrows and chat some shit. After MxO that's all I really do with games, use em as quick breaks between college work xD

our styles of play seem very similar cloud.  i was unaware.

i've just never understood the complaints about "grind" in any of the 30+ mmo's i've played.  if you don't want to grind, don't.  there's plenty of other things to do.  or go do something other than play video games.  problem solved.
I'm in this for the Experience, not the XP.
