So I just read that the people that made Entropia are making an MMO all about Micheal Jackson. Was kind of confused as to the wording of the above link so maybe they are just going to make a part of their existing game about Jackson, but either way, this is just a weird choice...


or Final Fantasy XIV? lmao

This is a lite harded thread not meant to start a shouting match! I will post one if those soon!

copied this from mmorpg.com this thread cracks me up,though i would share!

This... has me a bit curious... Part of me wants to criticize the whole idea but I think I'll keep those opinions to myself (ZAM has enough flame wars as it is). But I wonder if MJ's Neverland Ranch will be an area in it. Also reading the article it almost looks as if it'll be more of a MJ-themed game than actually based off him. I'd go as far to assume that you'll have items or power-ups that may deal with some of the stuff Micheal may have used in his music videos. They mention a cash shop where you can buy stuff like that.

Quote:
The game will be free-to-play and not subscription-based, with revenue coming in the form of virtual items that players can purchase for their avatars with real cash (like clothes and, no doubt, single glittering gloves); Players will also have the ability to have some of their purchases donated to charities in the spirit of Michael Jackson’s giving.

With the exception of being non-violent (No exploding enemies I guess.) it may be like this.

Quote:
Although SEE Virtual World’s Josh Gordon explained the game and what to expect to USA today saying, “the player is more apt to succeed in a situation using song, dance, and adventure as opposed to violence.” So interpret from that what you will.


And to keep this one piece related to FFXIV: Nothing against an MJ MMO but I don't think I'd really be able to get into it. Using song and dance, especially in an MMO to face situations is a different approach but I'd still take FFXIV over it.
