Lineage 2: Revolution recruits Conan O’Brien for western domination

What is the mobile game that everyone will be talking about this holiday season? Netmarble is confident that the answer to that is “Lineage 2 Revolution.”

The newly launched mobile MMO has some decent momentum at its back, considering that it is Netmarble’s top-grossing game in Korea right now and racked up 1.5 million pre-registrations. The studio is not shy in anticipating that Lineage 2 Revolution will blow up huge in the west as well, taking the top spot on mobile gaming charts.

“I’m taking every measure to make sure that Netmarble US would be successful here. I know for sure that we can reach the top of the charts with a mobile MMORPG,” said Netmarble CEO Shim Chul-Min in an interview. “To make sure that Lineage 2: Revolution becomes the number one mobile game in NA, we’ll do our absolute best.”

The studio has a valuable ally in its plans for American domination: Conan O’Brien is doing an ad campaign for Lineage 2 Revolution in which he hilariously attacks convention goers and breaks gamers’ flatscreens. Good stuff.

I’m having a lot of fun – oddly enough. My first Lineage game – I wasn’t aware of NCSoft until Aion as I was playing EQ and EQ2 before Aion came out. I’m leading a full Clan and just wrote clan-bylaws for the in-game Clan forums we get. Seems social for now. Looking forward to Project TL.

I’ve tried it, and found it…. lacking any actual gameplay. It played itself. Maybe I’m just spoiled but I like to actually play the game, not just watch a pregenerated sequence on screen. HiT is far better for a mobile MMO in this regards.

My friend was complaining about the “automaticness” of the game until I reminded him of the fact we were all using l2 walker when we played Lineage 2. I was like “Dude, at least this way it works better AND you don’t get banned!”

LOL thats too funny, I used a bot for Lineage 2 and Aion back in the days too.

All you do is click through pointless dialogue to get your character automatically moving again. It’s like a really bad idle game and an even worse MMO.

Moving a fake analog stick on a touch screen is bad, but auto pathing from objective to objective is bad solution.

I love seeing long time MMO publishers put more money into marketing their mobile games than they do for their recent PC releases.

Auto-play garbage.

I tried this and at the start it has you tap a quest and off it goes, auto-walk and auto-battle, you just tap again to accept the quest reward. I did a quick google to find that people are setting up Android emulators on PC to have this game auto-battle grind overnight. I don’t get it. Where’s the gameplay?

They also recruited a lot of prominent twitch/youtube e-famous personalities to promote it from what I could see…and not many of them specify their endeavours are actually sponsored content :P

Well that’s in direct violation of the FCC’s rules on the matter, which they updated after the whole skins gambling fiasco.

This is why it’s very difficult for me to pay attention to most stream/youtube personalities. I know this is “just” entertainment, but the lack of ethics and use of regular people as advertising stinks, not just as someone who reports on this stuff (and has to cross check these kinds of things), but as a consumer that is so, so, so tired of advertising.
