Yeah, I thought this was already out until I looked into it a couple of months back. Pretty weird that it took this long.
I'm interested in giving it a look just because I have so many fond memories of RO.

Knight and Monk... here I come!!!!

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.

WHAAAAT!?

How am I going to have time to play PSO2, RO2, and FFXIV? Well, least RO2 comes out first, woo!
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!

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....

Yeah, she did the music for it. The old version, at least. I don't know if that stuff is still in this version, but I imagine it is.
seeing as they used a song of hers in that very trailer I wouldn't be surprised

Feels like I've been listening to this stuff for years.

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.

wasn't lime odyssey or w/e suppose to be RO2?
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.
