RO was the very first MMO I played. Me and my friends are totally going to power this out on that day. Already registered and have the client downloaded! :D

EDIT: On a side note... has anyone heard of any updated information for that Project R1 game? (Supposedly TRUE successor to the original Ragnarok Online, by the initial creator who made Ragnarok?)

Yeah apparently the initial beta test didn't go over too well, and instead of making the same mistake FFXIV did, they decided to scrap the game and redo it instead of releasing anyway.

Instanced dungeons?

Fuck this game.

I loved going into dungeons and just watching random players trying to take out bosses.

I remember like 100's of people cramming into Baphomets lair and just getting fucking SLAUGHTERED. But we had a mission to finally kill him. Good times.

The 5 player dungeons have killed my interest.

LoL no kidding. Hoping for PSO2 information come January but FFXIV is still in alpha. I also plan to make a Paladin / Monk in XIV 2.0. (I actually have the Monk part covered... I think. If my account is still there. I haven't played it in over a year.)

I really love the tribute to RO1 with the skill names. Same goes for the anime. "Shieeeeeeeeeeeeld BOOMERANG!" Oh Roan... you're too awesome!

It went into beta in Korea a few years ago, and it was so universally disliked that they ended up dumping just about everything and redoing the game.

I have to be very careful around this game....RO and Ultime Online both took up a considerable amount of my time. In fact, I can say I was addicted. I could've learned a language or two in the nights I spent 10:00 PM to 5:00 AM just sitting in a dark room with 'em. But God, I had fun....

It is... from what I can remember. I know Gate of the New World was Yoko Kanno but I can't remember if they got her back for Legend of the Second. Here's the intro theme though JUST as amazing... as always!

Was about to post about the old Yoko Kanno album from 2007, such an amazing soundtrack, hope they use it. The "Yoru" by Ilaria Graziano and "Sailing" right after it is my two of my favorite tracks from that year, so good.

Yoru - Ilaria Graziano
Sailing - Yoko Kanno

Are you talking about the previous version of RO2 that was scrapped?

edit: Yeah, as mentioned I don't see why it wouldn't be.

I jumped on with RO during the alpha. It only had Prontera and Morroc, and there was a super giant Baphomet in the cave by Morroc. Pretty much the only thing to do in alpha was gang up on Baphomet. But it was fun.

Yep, already bombed in Korea though, closed down.

The original RO2 had a great and original art style and feel to it, a pretty amazing soundtrack too, but they just stopped working on it at one point for no reason. Instead they started to create this generic and garbage looking RO2 instead. I don't see how the best choice was to give up on something great and start fresh with something awful instead.

Sadly I'd probably be spending 2013 in PSO2 although this could be a decent secondary.
