It's not revolutionary as PlayTonic hype made me think, but it looks like good fun. I love Pirate themed stuff, and sea shanties. So this could be good!

An hour later and only one post in a thread about a new Rare game. How far they've fallen.

Just read that this is a multiplayer-only MMO. There goes what little interest I had in it.

The moment you saw that other player running past with no interaction you could just tell it was gonna be a fairly standard MMO

I'm eager to know more about it, it certainly looks pretty in that video.

Just realized that our very own Tiarny is working on this game. He's gonna be so disappointed in the reaction here. :lol: :oops:

I'd be much more interested if it was SP

Skimming through the GAF thread to find some info etc & it seemed to get a pretty positive reaction.

Thought this looked lovely, but hearing it's an MMO is a huge disappointment. The art style is beautiful though.

I was expecting complete and utter adoration. :lol:

But seriously, it's interesting to see the feedback. We only wanted to show a teaser, I have faith that time and more information will only improve things. I think I can safely clarify that we didn't call it an MMO, only the person who made the GAF thread did. Eurogamer, Kotaku, etc. don't call it an MMO in their articles either.

Although I think we can all agree that when the cannonballs start flying, my shanty singing really makes the scene, right? It might have only been in audio form, but at least I can scratch "appear at E3" off the bucket list. :toot:

Reading the stuff people said about this game way before it was shown and seeing the footage... their hype and what I am seeing doesn't match. I didn't buy into the hype, nor am I dismissing the game, but I would love to be able to see through their eyes to help me "get it".

I'll give it the benefit of doubt at start, if its a huge pirate mmo it could be awesome, loved how it looked.

Mmm, doesn't look like my cup of tea really. Nothing exciting on show here. MMO as well. :dread:

What's with all the MMO hate? I think it looks great, and there are not enough console MMOs, so happy to see a new contributor.

Count me down as another who would love this game if it was single player. I'm just not that into multiplayer games, but the world and style looks great!
