Blade & Soul

Behold, fans of MMORPG and feminine male characters alike, I present NCsoft newest Chinese martial arts MMORPG, Blade and Soul! Hwaaar~

Official Trailer

People familiar with PS2’s Magna Carta might notice the similar character designs. Well, the artist behind this is none other than Hyung Tae Kim, who draws feminine males. Now, that is why I’m going to play a female for B&S. Anyway, the game’s been on developement for the past 2 years and closed beta’s starting next year. From the looks of the trailer, there are only 2 races (but Q&A says there are 4 races and 8 classes), Jin (sword spewing machine) and Gon (punch and kick machine). Though having only such limited races, the aesthetics are certainly comparable to Granado Espada.

So, who’s with me for closed beta!?

P.S. Happy National Day!

    This looks really good for an mmorpg. I might actually give this one a try when it comes out.

    I believe many will try…
    Sword spewing machine… I like that phrase.

    Gotta love the girls.

    It’s either melee(Gon) or ranged(Jin)! Seems that Gon is easier to combo..

    I am definitely gonna play one of each, if I can. Oh, yes, both female. I love the Jin’s multi-sword control, and the Gon’s combos seem so much like my beloved Martial Arts rNPCs in GE.

    Maybe I’ll create a male Gon and call him Gracielo.

    We’ll all prolly need to upgrade our PCs, lol.

    It looks really interesting, but it might turn out to be just another generic MMO. However I will pick this up, probably playing as the sword-spewing machine, since I like those. Male or female, I will see whether this freaking trap artist of a Hyung Tae Kim pulls off a manly Jin.

    Yep, hopefully the English version comes out soon after the Korean one.

    Gon has stun! :D

    4GB RAM?

    I just wish there’s another AOE race-type, if not I’ll be playing Jin as well.

    What you ought to do is find a wedding marquee hire that will provide you with the cost effective for the money.
    While some maintenance can be done by a homeowner, a good plumber or HVAC technician should be consulted to make sure that your
    heating system will run efficiently during the
    next winter season and for years to come. The irritants in the home that can trigger asthma are a lot; cigarette smoke,
    perfumes, aerosol sprays, fumes from cleaning products
    and paints.

    Please note doctors don’t prescribe oral medicines for vaginal infections, it can lead to side-effects. While you are waiting for the launch of these tablets, you can consider some of the other tablets available in the market. The version of Windows on my tablet pc is Windows XP and there is no difference between it and the PC that I don’t use anymore.
