I hope to god that is a translated post, or the author doesn't have English as a first language.

As for the MMO: let's see it. A title that started in 2007 is going to have design decisions fueled by what happened in MMOs up to that point; the market in 2011 has changed a lot since then.

Would be true if current MMo devs weren't still designing games for 2002. WAR, AoC and Aion thought they were competing with EQ1 and DaoC. Rift thinks its 2004 again.

Fantasy, sci-fi AND quirky, if I'm reading things correctly.

Seen a rumour this may be the WildStar game that NCsoft bought trademarks et al a while ago for.

AND quirky ... WildStar

Too bad it has fantasy themes or they could channel Firefly and cut their marketing budget in half.

Not the Image comic. Extremely unlikely to be related to Star Blazers.

As I said, that was the rumour I saw in a few places, but it may not turn out to be true.

Those two were the two top things the almighty google showed me.

No idea what WildStar is/could be.  Enlighten me, UnSub?

Just a possible name. Like Lum's cancelled title was Blighted Empires. NCsoft goes out and buys the various names needed for their games long before they are announced and apparently have been sitting on WildStar for a while.

It could also point to the lore of the title, that a 'Wild Star' is somehow important to the game.

But then they could also announce that Carbine's new game is "Flippy McMuffin's Great Landscape Wander Online" and we'd still be ahead on what we know about a title that has been in development for 4 - 5 years.

The following position might appeal to you even more:

Battle-Hardened Soldier:

Quote
NCsoft is seeking an experienced fighter for a consulting position at Carbine Studios in Aliso Viejo, CA. Candidate would be assigned to their top-secret project.

To secure the position, the candidate must have:

Intergalactic security clearance
Proven experience in combat (especially with recently-discovered life-forms)
Extensive knowledge of cutting-edge weaponry and the ability to adapt to new technology as it is invented
Experience handling endless waves of enemies in seemingly hopeless situations (this is a plus)
Candidates will be subjected to daily obstacle courses requiring quick reflexes and MacGyver-like adaptability - loss of limbs practically guaranteed. Ability to tell horrific stories about scars by a campfire while chugging homemade whiskey expected.

MUST BE READY TO WORK BY AUGUST 17, 2011. NO EXCEPTIONS!

To apply, please send a cover letter and resume with references (of your ability to outrun bear-sized creatures preferably) to ArkShip@carbinestudios.com

Hmm, have to check about my intergalactic clearance, offices are quite slow granting that :(

Fun trailer, although the purple bunny girl was stereotypically useless. Being both the girl and the peaceful, reasonable one. The trigger happy vet and the reckless guy both got to blow away enemies with big attacks while her sparkle attack did nothing.

Gameplay footage from Gamescom:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zooOjqhUH0Q

From the description:

"Developed by NCsoft's Southern California-based Carbine Studios, WildStar offers epic high adventure, where players make their mark as Explorers, Soldiers, Scientists or Settlers and lay claim to a mysterious planet on the edge of known space. WildStar's iconic visual style and "Momentum Mechanics" immerse players in a deep world stacked with content, challenges and rewards that respond to the play style choices of individual players. "

Nice, I love the art style and the character animations.

Yeah, I don't quite get this one.  It doesn't help that it didn't offer gameplay.  Looks to be a simple ranged/lmelee/powers setup.  Also, Viera.  Why bunny-eared lady?  Cute and quirky space cartoon doesn't seem like it would be a big seller.

It appears to be a modern DIKU MMO with DIKU MMO combat but no autoattack, like it appears to be in SWTOR.

We won't know if the holy trinity will be prevalent yet.

I like it.  A lot (so far).  But it's almost like the game was developed purely for my ridiculous tastes.
This does not bode well for the rest of you.

I like that it doesn't take itself too seriously, I like the style, and I get a very big ratchet and clank vibe from it.

The combat looks like standard fare, and for me, boring. This should have been an action game.

Steampunk Wow from the looks of the art direction. Shoulderpads a must.

I should get back to nature, too.  You know, like going to a shop for groceries instead of the computer.  Maybe a condo in the woods that doesn't even have a health club or restaurant attached.  Buy a car with only two cup holders or something. -Signe

The new take on the class system is cool.  Instead of a class just defining the way you kill things, the tasks are actually different.  Obviously, this put a lot of pressure on content design but it should give significant replayability.

Your character class is separate from Paths - you pick a class for combat, but then that explorer/soldier/etc thing you pick as well.

It's scary how this is almost exactly like my first thoughts on hearing the name.  Feels very inspired by Outlaw Star, Trigun and similar anime.  The ingame screens give me a very Titan AE feel for the art style curiously.  Feels like they're really shooting for a blending of anime and more traditional western stuff.  For me personally at least that stuff hit all my buttons.

Edit: I also signed up for beta and listed F13.
