Scot Dutchy's Freemium Pirate Game for Grownups

#1  Postby CdesignProponentsist » Aug 19, 2015 7:36 pm

I started this for you Scot, so you can tell us all about your grown up freemium pirate game. You can even tell us how childish and fanciful everyone else's game is by comparison in your very own thread so you don't have to go and take a shit on everyone else's thread.

So tell us about your awesome pirate game.

I was hoping for something a little less Piratey.

I loved playing Sid Meier's "Pirates!".

Come on Scot, tell us about it. I'm interested in checking it out (I can't even remember what the game was called now!).

Pretty sure it was Uncharted Waters Online. A game with 174 US dollars of "DLC" (read that as in game items and bonuses you pay for with real money) on Steam as well as an in game currency you buy with real money called Astros. Not sure what you can buy with Astros but if it is anything like other F2P games then that will be for cosmetic changes, items and in game advantages.

This guy seems hugely impressed by the sea for some unknown reason:

For the lulz go to 11:00 to see the end of a sea battle then a boarding and then a sword fight. Best viewed in 1080p to fully appreciate the graphics ;)

Come on Scot, tell us what's so good about the game ... because it really does look absolute garbage.

As you said in the Space Engine thread:

Indeed!

It really does look like it uses the same graphics engine that Dark Age of Camelot had circa 2004/2005.

In fact looking at the UI, it probably is the same game engine.

To be fair I don't like shitting on a MMO for shitty graphics. That is often a choice to ease up on costs, saves on paying people to keep making it look nice, saves on server space, saves on download times and can help with people with bad connections.

I did a quick search for MMO sailing games when trying to remember the name of the game and UWO was rated highly among those games.

I agree that there is more to an MMO than its graphics and the rule of trying to make the game as accessible to as many PCs as possible > everything else. If UWO has the content, then the graphics are really a secondary consideration, particularly if the overall package conveys the right kind of atmosphere.

*edit*

I don't see anything about UWO that suggests any massively originality on its part or anything that would compell me to play it compared to say, starting up Dark Age of Camelot again or logging back into WoW.
