    It still looks like crap though.
    Everytime I hear 'Runescape' im reminded as how the hell I managed to waste 1 year of my life on it..

    lol HD, its about as HD as Gamelofts recent mobile games (like Assassins Creed HD is just a poor port of the DS game)!

    This chick I use to sleep with kept pestering me to play this all the time, fount it to be a bit shit.

    Wait, you don't have to pay monthly fee to play this game right?
    If you need to, that'd be overpriced regardless of amount.

    Assuming the main character's height is 2m (which is an extreme overestimate because he looks about 5ft even), your visibility is only like 10m.

    The last game I played with that kind of viewing distance was N3 on X360. That game pushes like 500 units (ally enemy combined) in one screen, but this? I only see 2 characters and some trees.

    Ok, seriously. To RS players this is like Jesus coming to their house.

    I have a bomb alallalallala
    I played that game for 10 seconds,and didn't know what the fuck to do.
    Also watching my sister play it was enough for me to confirm it sucks.
    I might give it another go..

    it's a good game but very boring at times mainly due to 30% for the non-members and the rest for the members which is pretty annoying, i mean after dragon slayer and levels 50+ what do u want us to train on huh!!
    Not bad graphics but maybe later they will make it better since i didn't see tht much changes except shadows and the water (which is very good i must agree)

    Nope not exactly. Its pretty cool though, I kinda miss old RS though. Plus I can't even play HD (High Detail, yes thats what it stands for not High Definition) on my computer because my computer sucks that much ass.

    I still like it though, I am a lvl 90 with 96 firemaking.

    Its $5 a month for membership. Not bad compared to WoW were you have to buy the game and then pay like $15 a month for it.

    Just incase anyone wants to chat.

    I would be playing it if it wasn't 5 bucks a month. I know I sound cheap but I'm not into playing games that charge me a fee.

    HD is short for High Detail. Not High Definition.

    I remember a long time ago, when I was in the 7th grade, I played as a girl on RS. lmfao.
    I got so many freebies from other people. Ah... The good ole days. xD
