Mabinogi

Filed under: Game — Tags: , , , , , — setsukyie @ 10:55 pm

Mabinogi is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Game (MMORPG) developed by Nexon. The game is set in a fantasy world just like other MMORPGs. It has levels, skills, and other things you can find in a MMORPG.

Usually I’m not really interested in online games and I never thought of blogging about one. But Mabinogi is different. What made me interested in it are the cell-shaded graphic and the anime-looking characters. And all the features that the game offers.

The game make use of real-life things such as age and days (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc.). When creating a character, you can choose their age between 10 and 17 years old. As you play the game, your character gets older by 1 year on every Saturdays. Your character’s age also affects their stats.

What makes the game different from other online games are the ‘Life Skills’ that the game offers. Some of the many ‘Life Skills’ are tending to the wheat and potato fields, making flour, gathering wool from sheep and eggs from hens, weaving and making garments, mining for minerals and crafting weapons, playing and composing music, cooking dishes, etc.

Other features include marriage system, pet system, friend system, party system, guild system, title system (applying title on self after achieving certain conditions), music composing, dungeons, quests, and also housing.

There are lots of other features that I haven’t mentioned. I haven’t tried the game myself because the game is still in closed beta and I’m not one of the chosen ones (0_0). I’ll try the game later when it’s in open beta but I don’t think I can devote myself to the game because I’m busy and I have no time to play games..hehe… However, this game looks decent and I hope it gets better in the future.

Here are some images from the game.

And here are some videos from the game.

  1. Looks good, even though it took them forever to port this. Then again, I’ve already sworn off MMOs, so it wouldn’t matter anyway….

  3. Looks cool, but I’m not very sociable so MMOs are always grinding by myself, and that gets tiring very fast =P

  4. Grinding is the main reason why I don’t like MMORPG’s much.. (especially grinding in Maple Story, hate it)..

    But people say that grinding is not needed to have fun in Mabinogi..with all the ‘Life Skills’ and stuff…

  7. I feel you with the grinding; I’ve played way too many of these MMOs and they just end up being the same.

  8. I play Mabinogi, and grinding is not an issue in this game. Theres a ReBirth system, where if you find it too hard to level, you can reset your level, but keep all the AP you put into skills. In this game, its not your level that really matters, but your total level, and skill levels. And also how you fight, this game takes more strategy than normal MMOs. I would definably recommend that you play this though.
