MGO Revival?

[ Edited ]
193 Replies 1,698 Views edited 15-04-2011

Hey guys,

 

I'm wondering, do you think we should try and "revive" MGO?

 

With the recent changes, and with comments across the net that the game is now much more "cheat free", I'm pretty keen on getting back on MGO. It's still my favourite sneak em up,  and I'd love to get community members back online.

 

I even have a feeling that most fans will still have a copy of the game - it's not one that you are quick to trade in.

 

So - do you think it's possible? Would you back me up in getting people online?

If I had a working PS3, I'd be all too glad to help out as I was starting to play it regularly again after the last update. Maybe you could use your contacts to hook me up with a new console... heh. :p

To be honest I don't think you'll notice many improvements as the patch was mainly introduced to combat lag switching (it's still possible though it's been made harder), animation lag is a still a bit of an issue and I don't thing there's been many network improvements for people with "problem" connections (i.e. not being able to host, having high ping for inexplicable reasons).

Still, they did introduce some unique character skill changes such as degrading Raiden's toughness skill to 1 (sword vs. shield battles aren't so unbalanced now) and Snake now has box movement 3 complete with box tackle (that last change makes the game infinitely better by itself :)). Those character changes are expansion pack specific though so they're probably irrelevant for any fun nights.

You could probably lure a few of the forum regulars back to the game, but I probably won't be picking up a new PS3 until White Knight Chronicles 2 is released.

If a night gets sorted and it's a night I'm not working then I'd be totally up for it.

 

I do keep meaning to play a bit of MGO for old times sake but just never get around to it and never see anyone else on to give me incentive to join them. It'd be good

 

Oh, and does anyone know when White Knight Chronicles 2 is out? Yes I could use Google but that's just dull and I wanna know when that Pigeon gets back online

I'd like to give it a go. I can't see it being a barrel of laughs thought with my connection.

It doesn't have a release date yet, but it could be out in May. Depends if the localistation has been affected by the Japanese earthquake, sloth.

 

Anyway, I have noticed over the past few months that Muster has been acting pretty nostalgic about the codec system in...

Been beat by Muster again. :(

In all seriousness, I was planning a MGO fun night in the next few weeks, was just trying to find a time that I would have been free, that also would have seen a fair turn out.

Im all up for a reunion fun night, after the few games last month with Surreal. Some issues do seem to have been resolved, and we ended up playing for a few hours. I was actually going to make a thead last week about a fun night, but it was just trying to organise a night where I would actually be able to have made it myself!

I tried to sign into the MGO store using what I thought was my ID and Pass, but I'm having trouble.
My first post was a bit dismissive but what I meant to say was, if I can get my log ins back I might consider it. I've gotten better at over shoulder shooters since back when I played MGO, I like to think.

You could always just run around and use auto aim like I do. I don't too badly, even with assault rifles... heh.

Like Garry, I'm not entirely sure of the log ins I had, think I remember though. Would consider starting new, but I don't want to have to build up the skills again. I would be up for playing, need to sort out all the updates and find out where my game actually is though.

I'm more concerned about my GENE and MEME and SCENE or whatever they were, than my skills. I'd play from Scratch, but isn't there something like 1 slot per PS3 would it not let me start over?

Ah yeah, forgot about the expansions.

Yeah, it's one per PS3, I have a new PS3 so could do it without forking out the extra dosh for the extra slot.

It's ok, no need to worry, I got in to my account and Rochelle's singing voice is fine. No need for panic.

Wow. I wonder what the likes of PBO and 2TM actually did with their lives during that period :xRolleyes:

 

If there's a turnout of either 6 or 12 then a cool way of doing the night could be to link it with survival. I suppose that may need an expansion so rule it out if so. It'd certainly be fun to do survival sometime though

 

If I can make whatever night it's on then I am definatly up for playing for a good 4 hours or so making a night of it so hopefully all goes well

I'd rather just have a fun night than the competitiveness of survival. But that's just me.
