Hurray for Quick Looks!

Posted by eroticfishcake

Oh cool. I was hoping to look at this (but not play it).

@eroticfishcake: same.

Hello, Quick Look!

Posted by Symphony

I've heard of this game... is it any good?

Posted by Lilja

I played the beta. It is an awesome game, very well polished. 

Posted by Bioderm

Do a Aion endurance run :D

Posted by Adamantium

Awesome. Thanks Giant Bomb!

Posted by Saieno

Nice. Wonder how different the North American version is compared to the Chinese.

Been looking forward to this QL. I do like this game - it fixes a lot of little annoyances with WoW and has some cool ideas going on. Still it's totally an MMO, and a grind heavy one at that. Don't think I'll be in this for the long haul, but fun to mess around in.

Goddamn this game looks good.

...racist..

Posted by ryanwho

I like Dave but a game as silly as this requires two cats who are willing to put bikini hobbit out on the field.

Posted by MattBodega

@Snide How well would you say Aion runs? I've got a laptop that runs Wow pretty well and Crysis......poorly-ish. Obviously, the quick look is on the office tech, but if my compy is running Crysis at all , am I going to get decent performance out of Aion?

Edited by stinky

higher polygon count doesn't seem to be enough reason to switch over to this game. 
  
i'll have to wait and hear more about it.

..sexist..
 
man, all this within the first 2min too. 
 
and then.. is that a DRUG REFERENCE I'm hearing now, too??!
 
I'm not so sure i can stomach the rest of this, you vulgar mouths... yeah Ive just got to turn it off.
 
as wholeheartedly very fucking interested i am in this amazing new offering to the point and click combat, well point and click in general, item gathering game.
 
Not only that! But i get to pay them every month to gather their virtual junk...you know feel like a real g, an elite upper class blue-item gatherer.

I just bought it and I'm under the process of installing it right now! ;D

Glad to see this is finally up.  Dave, if you ever get bored, come to Marchutan, got a good group of players that started out in FFXI and have been together for 2-5 years.

Posted by CitizenJP

I <3 Aion! Lots of fun! Join Ziekel Dave! Its where its at!

Posted by Jimbo_N

Aion is really good so far. Bu then again, just like Dave I´m an MMO addict. I try them all.

"It's cute, can you kill it?" 
 
Dude, Vinny wants to kill everything. I'm glad there are videogames, or he'd probably be a murdering psychopath. Heh heh heh. 
 
"Great. Now you're on the last level of Half-Life."

Posted by Scooper

Yay Quick look.

Edited by Death_Burnout

I have mixed feelings with Aion since closed beta.
 
God damnit Dave, i'm a female Elyos scout/ranger too
 
I really really wish they kept the asian voice tracks though...the new ones are terrible and annoying! you can hear everyone saying the damn same things that make no sense over and over. The annoying thing is, they kept em asian for a few cutscenes...which pisses me off even more, im talking about combat voices.
 
Fucking fantastic music though! i love the stuff! keeps me playing...
 
C'mon guys, theres a button at the bottom of the screen to fly! 
 
Man this entire post makes me sound like a really annoying JRPG fan, which im not, apologies...though the back end of this QL was so painful.

Posted by AndrewB

Ah, Dave, you're so freaking racist :D ("The only thing I don't like about the sorta Asian style MMOs are that the characters tend to all look a little... the same.")

Posted by Turambar

They were murdered by Crab Norris.  This QL is officially complete.

Posted by corgorav

Nice QL, the game itself looks pretty average Asian mmo in every way and the story doesn't sound too interesting from what I've read.

Posted by AlmostSwedish

Endurance run!

Posted by bk
@MattBodega:  It runs on CryEngine 1, used in the Farcry games, not Crysis.
Posted by Meltbrain

The character creator is fantastic, and the graphics are pretty awesome... I'm not sure if I'd get it though... Great quick look once again, chaps. Looking forward to more!

Posted by Mistzero

i do see the fish floating

Posted by atomic_dumpling

It really looks nice, the streaming of textures and so forth seems to work very well. 
I would prefer it over WoW, simply because it's not WoW.

Posted by Noodles

Good quick look, the game gets boring after you get used to the graphics though. I already uninstalled and canceled my subscription just a few weeks in.

Posted by BenderUnit22

Pantsu!

Posted by lukeissxc

Video isn't working for me. I still see the ODST ads but after that nothing comes up.
Posted by Bucketdeth

I really don't know how anyone finds this game looks nice, yeah it has some polish but it's the same bland korean style as every free mmo out there, Age Of Conan, graphics wise, blows this out of the water.

Posted by HolyCrapItsAdam

I really want to play some MMO's but I just can't bring myself to pay a monthly fee to play a game

Edited by JohnDudebro

So THAT'S why you never accepted my friend request in Champions Online, Dave. You've been playing Aion instead.

Posted by Noted

Aion is pretty good, but once I had to grind to gain a level I reactivated my WoW account.

Posted by JoshS

This was painful the watch.. I love you Dave but don't say you do your research within five minutes of getting the level cap wrong. There were many other parts but that's okay. Thanks for the quick look at least :D

Haha. Yeah. Sorry about that. I jumble my words sometimes. Playing a game while talking nonstop is harder then it looks :) 
Posted by Evilsbane

It looks pretty but OMG those combat voice sounds are God awful hope you can turn that off cause DAMN

I just checked the character on the Aion site. Still level 10? :(  When was this recorded?

Vinny is a capricious God.

It'll be no problem at all. Aion's really well optimized.

ahahahah, the midget character would have been awesome.

It's misleading to say the Crytek engine these days. This game is actually a heavily modifed FarCry 1 engine. Not Crysis. You'll probably be just fine.

I wanted to see more combat in this quick look! There were like 3 fights in the entire video... I still don't really have a feel for the combat.
