Looking at this gameplay, it seems to be real-time, non-metered combat. I've been looking for the name of a certain game that was in this style and you guys seem to know what's out there.
There's also a game out there that has a sort of cel-shaded or japanime-ish art style in the same combat style - also a free MMO. Watched a trailer about 2 years ago and haven't seen anything about it sense. It showed promise but it was in preliminary stages and closed beta was expected about a year later in a trailer. It should be released, or cancelled by now.
Anyone hear about something like that or know of any games that fit that description? It probably sucks but it just bugs me that I can't remember the name.

Sure it shares similar concepts but Monster Hunter is more tactical and more equipment and skill based. The way your hunter moves is very realistic and the way the weapons work as you attack a monster is just...different. It's not something easy to describe unless you play Monster Hunter.
Vindictus is more visceral and fast paced, focusing more on action. It's also...oddly enough, a lot less forgiving on bosses when it comes to getting hit by them.
