    Lightbulb Bleach MMORPG - Your opinionz pleez!

    What do you guys think of a Bleach MMORPG?


    What kind of features would you want in it?
    Should it be cell-shaded (like wind-waker) or regular (like halo)?
    What should be the goal of the game?
    How should death in the game work?
    What else can you see?



    ---


    I would love to see some kind of advanced voice recognition feature for attacks that require speech. Like....you can't release without actually saying the chant or even do a spell without saying the chant. (unless you were at a high level or something). As far as the game design, it would be cool to have 3 seperate realms (servers): SS, HM, and Earth. All normal boring humans would be NPCs. All areas would have to be fully destructible environments.

    Also, since most MMOs all have incredible character creation systems, it would be cool to have that and also take it a step further for a sword/hilt creator.

    What do you guys think?

    That's pretty cool.

    Cell-shaded fo' sho, cuz anything else just looks like gay computer-based stuff. Cells make it more... artistic. The goal... should be to get beastly. And incredibly strong.

    You should have it, like, the Gotei 13 is made up of players. And you can advance through the ranks, or kill a captain, or make your way to the top whatever way.

    And zanpakuto creation should be... I dunno. I guess when you get to the level where you unlock communication with it, you get to do a creation for it. And like, you can use exp to unlock higher releases, or add custom effects to the releases you already have.

    Nice in theory, sucky in implementation, what would be the point? the goal of the game, would there be items, could you join your own squad? etc.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.

    that the annoyance factor of it being based on an anime means people who are to into it or people who think they know more about the series then anyone. while mmo can be fun having it based on something is usually a bad idea.

    I'm asking YOU that smart guy. Is that what the game would need to have in order for you to consider it a good game? Elaborate.


    What I'm thinking is this:

    You start the game and can choose to be a:

    Hollow - Shinigami - Quincy - Arrancar - Bounto

    (im joking about the bounto of course, lmao)

    Hollow server = Hueco Mundo
    Shinigami server = Soul Society
    Quincy server = Earth

    If you start as a shini, you choose a Gotei 13 squad. You try to rise up in ranks to a seated position. You also have the choice to transfer to another squad (after some time of course). But each time you do...you start at bottom rank and must climb back up. How you would rise up in rank is debatable. Squad 1 and Assassination squad would be blocked off and only accessible for mid to higher levels. That way they have respect! If you obtain the hogyoku or somehow become a vaizard (up for debate), you would have to keep it a secret. For if it was discovered by the wrong person, you would be kicked out of Soul Society forced to live on the vaizard base located on earth. (i think thats pretty cool...) Shini are pretty much group oriented. Of course if you're strong enough, u can go it alone...who cares - but you will always be part of a squad. (and im pretty sure it would make sense to place certain character classes within certain squads). You can also go to earth and hueco mundo (not out of nowhere but at a government watched gate, or if someone with the ability to opened one for you) and purify hollows.

    If you start off as a hollow, you have no group affiliation. You're a loner who gets stronger and stronger. You can go to earth freely (no watched gate needed) and eat npc humans. (im sure exp would count here) but also shini (actual players) will come attack you. if you eat a shini of course...its way more exp. I'm not too sure how Menos Grande would work...or how assimilating other hollows would work. but if you came in contact with the hogyoku or became an arrancar (only at higher levels) then you would slip right into the arrancar rank system under aizen and work your way towards espada. Those who get pushed out of espada go to expada until they become top 10 in strength again. (pretty cool).

    Now if you choose to be an Arrancar, you would enter the arrancar rank system at the bottom of the pile ie that would be your birth number.

    If you choose to be Quincy, you would just start on earth at the Quincy HQ or something.

    I'm guessing the goal would be to get to the 4th Realm of the King. But it would have to be done with a twist i guess. What im thinking is that each main realm has a "throne" that is in the center of the HQ. To open the path to the 4th realm, you must control 2 of the 3 thrones. (or maybe all 3?). Then you do whatever u gotta do in the 4th realm and watever race sits on the throne first is claimed King and that race is the winner, blah blah blah. What im thinkin is that this is a pretty cool way to keep war going. And who knows what the 4th realm (server) will do.

    All speculation. What say you?

    freaky, everything you said, i was thinking of when i read this thread. i never actually thought of the bounto idea but it could kinda work in there. people could start in different areas of the map depending on race just like WoW did. I think its better to have everyone starts of as human lv up to a certain point than chooses what he wanna be later by talking to some npc (gives a reason to stay as human with powers).

    For Quincy the story can be like, you found out you quincy after all or something as the back story for becoming a quincy. (its only a game so it could work).

    As for faction or guild wars you can fight for towns all over the place. Guilds can recruit anyone they want or its just not fun when there are limitations.

    Look up Ran Online. The beginning of the game can have settings like that.

    bleach gaming in general sucks so no. as an mmo it would be hard to pull off and make it original. It would be better as just an action adventure game with maybe a co-op mode.

    ok dna...then WHAT would the game need for you to think its great. Don't limit yourself to the current generations (altho the PS3 is a friggin beast). A game like this wouldn't come out anytime soon...the voice recognition feature alone would require alot of resources and programming.

    With the voice recognition feature that would also allow verbal communication between individuals rather than text chat. And only when a specific button is pressed would the actual VoicRec System actually initialize and listen out for commands. That way you're not destroying whole towns when talking about ban-kai in casual conversation. (lmao, the image)

    But also the VRS would have to be top notch especially for demon arts. If you have to say the whole chant, the VRS should be able to work perfectly regardless of what speed you say it at (altho im sure too slow will just have you start over again). Then if you practice that one demon magic (of course you being able to do it will have some requirements and some might even damage the user until a certain point) all you have to do is say the name and boom...casting ensues.

    All the summons and custom magic spells that i see in other MMOs lead me to believe that creating your own shikai / ban kai wouldn't be that big of a problem. Sorta like the create a move in Tony Hawk...only more robust.


    Azure Sky, that does sound pretty nice. What if on top of that, you couldn't start off as a Vaizard or Arrancar. You know...leave that for an expansion pack after a year. And BEFORE the expansion pack came out have a world event (to create hype and boost sales). First, the game comes out and everyone is just becoming stronger and stronger. Thats the goal, to be the strongest shini, the baddest hollow, or the coolest quincy.

    BUT after a year, have Aizen appear (as played by an NPC or GameMaster; [whom also play as Central 46]). He creates this huge commotion in Soul Society along with Gin and Tousen. And he even opens up a gate to Hueco Mundo allowing a massive server battle to engage. Let it span for like say...a week or two (?). The gate is 2-way. So shini can even head to hueco mundo to battle. (keep in mind that higher level char. can easily make a gate of their own but this gate allows free flow of any level char and its also not operated by governement but is more like a tear that Aizen opens) During this time, hype the new expansion pack talking about new areas, new classes, new races, new powers, etc.

    Also, the gate has a time limit on it. As soon as Aizen obtains the hogyoku, he will head to hueco mundo and close the gate. (the time limit will be open for all to see) BUT you will be trapped whereever you are when the gate closes. SO ur a shini and u didn't make it back on time...we'll your stuck in hueco mundo until a good hollow gives you passage to earth and u find ur way back to SS OR a high level hollow gives you direct passage to SS...good luck there. Same thing vice versa with a hollow stuck in SS.

    Anyway, the war ends, Aizen gets hogyoku, expansion pack goes on sale. Now you have opportunity to become vaizard or arrancar with ur current character or start off as a low level arrancar (no low level vaizard). Central 46 makes announcement that all Vaizards will be kicked out. Betrayals ensue and new stories start anew.

    Now you can start your own Vaizard group or join one and fight against SS for kicking you out or fight hollow. Pretty much you are neutral. (altho you do have the option of teaming up with aizen if you can get to Hollow Society and join a group) New arrancar enter the ARS (arrancar rank system) up to espada.


    The goal should change around here im thinking. It should now become who can get to the 4th realm first, claim himself as King, then lay waste to all others (or something).

    PS
    I'm sure you would need a button for shunpo as well...

    mago ur a genius
    although I think there might have to be certain restrictions on shikai and bankai

    I also believe that considering the time to fire off a demon arts spell they would need to be marginally stronger than a few slashes with a sword just to be fair

    in a system like this would it be a level up system?
    if so I would think that you could choose to level up certain parts of your charas abilites unlike in other mmo's where everythign goes up for no reason

    ps nice marketing ideas
