Blade & Soul: WTF?

May 2, 2011

Leave it NCSoft to bring us another Korean made MMO that gives us WTF moment after WTF moment.  The simple fact of the matter is that I have been looking at this MMO since I was playing Aion.  It is one of the many new “Action Combat” based MMOs that will be released in the next 12 months.  The overall concept of the game seems to be completely based in the old asian mythology.  Think Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon the MMO.

The graphics are pretty damn nice looking and the overall look and feel of the game is pretty awesome.  Right down to the combat animations.  Taking a look at the video of the massive group PvP shows many of these animations.  The two biggest things you will notice are that there seem to be no lag whatsoever in the large group combat.  A pretty amazing feat considering the number of players that are on screen.

The second has to be the gliding.  Which is the true WTF moment.  This type of gameplay just seems far too gimmicky for words.  I had been looking forward to checking out this game until I saw it.
