Too bad they didn't stick to 2D for this. blah.
Well it's still doing ok in the states. Hard to say that for most mmos. It also and runescape are pretty much the guilty party of free 2 play games in the west.
It always amazed me how this franchise and Starcraft were so much more popular in Korea than anywhere else. I guess its similar to how successful COD is in the states?
For the people mentioning PVP, it's pretty likely to be in the game since they have in it in Maple 1 (though it sucks).
The people who are normally interested in these types of games probably don't have computers more powerful than a dual core cpu and some very outdated budget card. Hence, you wont see standards (like getting those graphics in the CG) for mainstream PC users in likely 10 years or more.
I haven't watched the video as yet but there's something weird about this statement.
As for PS4, yeah I expect certain visual effects to be possible on the console minus the massive rendering time needed for IQ, Geometry, physics etc.
Used to play it a long long time ago and enjoyed it.
Peer pressure, want to look da bess, maplestory having a rental system instead of an ownership, having a job as a teen and not knowing what to do with the money....being a teen in general. Actually throw Dungeon And Fighter in there, easily the most money I've spent on anything aside from my car.
