floop writes "Vendetta Online, a MMORPG trader/shooter with decent PvP action, came out of beta on Nov. 1st for Linux, Mac and Windows. I've found pirating hapless n00bs and hunting other pirates being the 2 most fun aspects of the game so far. It has an engrossing back story and pretty screenshots. The guys putting this out are a small operation, and this is their first project. "

    As an old Elite addict looking for his fix, Vendetta fit the bill rather well. In the terms of Privateer or Tachyon: The Fringe it's not as immerse, since you don't have the direct story following you or cool voice commentary. What the game does offer is 'twitch' space combat, where your skills as pilot matter more than your character levels in terms of making or becoming debris. At the moment I'm having fun preying on the various NPC bots and trading cargo under the constant risk of pirate activity (NPC and player) with the economy very dynamic based on player actions. The reason I'm sticking around is because I have great respect for the developers and their desire to evolve the game world in the directions the players take it. Throughout the beta they were very responsive to player feedback, and coming from ATITD (which had only two real developers) I've come to expect more from these smaller game companies. I've yet to be disappointed.

    So is this essentially... Escape Velocity in MMORPG form? That would kick so much ass, half the world wouldn't be able to sit down for weeks.

    If you really want an off the shelf game then buy the $49 6 month subscription. Its the same cost as a shelf box and I hardly buy more then 3 games a year leaving 6 months to be plenty of time to exaust the game. If you want to keep playing after 6 months then its obvious the game has more replay value then many other games. If it takes 6 months for you to finish a game then its not very cost effective for you to buy a new game.

    I dont mind month monthly subscriptions when you dont have to buy a box as well. And it sounds like the expensions will not have to be purchased on the side.

    Good things ahead... we had the buy the box + expansions + montly. Now we have buy the montly as well as (Guild wars) buy the box, buy expansions with no montly.

    Great Community- this is not like CS, where it's all the 13373573R5 mouthing off. It's got a RPG-worthy community.
    I wonder if that'll still be true after being posted on /.

There is never time to do it right, but always time to do it over.

Working...
