MMORPG Vendetta Online Released 50

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. "

    There are a lot of things that speak for this game:

    Tux on the box []

    Same price for all platforms

    Fastpaced game action with PvP

    Skillbased combat system, not "most expensive stuff wins"

    Fastpaced, no "point, click, wait"

    Minimal grinding (no hoursof waiting for the minings)

    Developer contact. Several player ideas have been implemented, some within days

    Developers actually ingame

    Unfortunately addictive

    I'm one of those people with a job that takes up a lot of time. MMORPGs would be great if I didn't have to worry about paying for time I won't use. I wouldn't mind paying if I could guarantee I'd be making use of that time. Does anyone know if it is possible for me to pay for a month, disappear for a month, and come back again and still have the same character?

    I've been betatesting this game for, um, a few years now. It's the greatest game ever. Here's some reasons:

    • Scalable Graphics engine- works on the lowest of low end, is beautiful on high end
    • Engrossing Gameplay- What can I say? It's entirely unique, and entirely fun.
    • Great Community- this is not like CS, where it's all the 13373573R5 mouthing off. It's got a RPG-worthy community.
    • Great Dev Team- 4 guys. And they did it all. If you have a bug, they fix it. They're available pretty much all the time. What more can a player want?
    • A Future- They've got a capital-ships addon underway (will be *supposedly* a free download), and they release updates every week or so, with new features and bugfixes.
    • Tri-Platform- OS X, Linux, Windows, whatever suits you, the game runs great. It even kinda runs on BSD and BeOS!

    If you're not playing this game already, you're missing out on a great game. So GO JOIN []!

    ...for well over a year.

    Vendetta is truely a multi-player team game. While you can play it by yourself, the real fun kicks in when there are a few dozen ships from different factions in the same sector and they are at war. That and either killing pirates or being one.

    I expect that early on, people will not love the game. As enough people rise in power and wealth, the newer members will also benifit. Looking at how large the Vendetta universe is, I expect that it could handle 10,000 players at the same time without a problem -- and probably beyond 100,000. A couple thousand playing at the same time would probably be when things start getting interesting.

    There are promises of improvements to the universe over time. I'd be very interested in how the community grows and the changes impact the players in the next 3-6 months.

    Will I ever see new article submissions? :D Really, I'm kinda working on a php-based built-in article submitter and creator. But it's slow work, and taking awhile,.

I've got a bad feeling about this.
