Maple Story (English Version)


FEATURE Simple introduction: its a 2D platform side scroller, with a healthy dose of Anime and addictive gameplay.



Great game, really. Just think about it. Reminds you of when you wer playing Mario, except that now you get to choose between 4 Jobs, and you gottta have the right stats and stick to that class after the 2nd Job Advancement.



Pretty cool game, very interactive.



Downside is that the English Version is far from complete, and is still going through alot of patching to flush out hackers, as well as not all areas and monsters have been implemented. Quests as well. The Cash Shop is still not open.




However they do try to make up in several ways. Like the recent X'Mas Event. Pretty lame, but oh well. Quite repetitive as you fight, but somehow it isn't as boring as you think it to be. Rarity of items may really be rare; the occasional appearing of one can renew that vigor in you to go on and fight some more.



Currency in MS in not inflated in any sense at all. And easy to earn too.



Skills and their effects are yet another plus point. You should try it today.

Star War Galaxies


FEATURE Overview

Star Wars Galaxies is a fully 3D MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game). It is the first MMORPG to be based on Star Wars and you can take many paths in this game, you can become an Imperial Officer, in space or on ground. Or you can join the Rebel force and help bring the rebels to victory.



In Star Wars galaxies you can also do things that you can do in other MMORPGs including, fishing (not an actual skill though), cook, craft, fight.



Star Wars Galaxies has many skills to choose from and you can have fun for hours doing quests to get more experience.



There is even a skill for player towns (Politician) which the leader must have.



Gameplay



The gameplay of Star Wars Galaxies can never get boring, fighting on this game isn't just click the monster and wait for it to kill them, on this game you can get special moves which allow you to deal a lot more damage, and watch your character do cool things! Crafting in this game is just as fun, you can even craft droids, starships, armor, weapons and many other things.



There is also a PVP System which I haven't used yet so I cannot tell you how good it is or how bad it is.



In Star Wars Galaxies you don't die, you get 'incapped' which is basically, you get knocked out for so long and then you wake up. Some people may see this as a bad thing but if you get 'incapped' 3 times within 10 minutes you will die and to the nearest cloning facility to you. You can insure your items and create clone data so you don't loose anything :).



Also the Star Wars Galaxies community is amazing, when I first started playing I was shocked by how kind people are as I came from a game called "RuneScape" which everyone will agree with me when I say this, but it has the worst community ever.



Anyway, as I was saying, just about everyone is friendly and willing to help you, or just if you want a chat, people will chat with you. When I joined the guild I am in now (Magical Trevor Guild, MTreV = Abb) I was welcomed in, even though I was completely new they didn't call me a "n00b" which you experience in many other games.



The only problem I really have with this game is that it can go slow when loading towns etc



Graphics



The graphics of this game are very good, this may sound cheesy as I haven't really said anything bad about this game but to be honest it is one of the best MMORPG's I have ever played.



The graphics again, are very good and in this game you can actually see the difference in sizes of animals, for example, a rat is small but a Krayt Dragon is HUGE.



Also, as for my characters avatar; if I do a special move you can actually see the avatar proforming it and not just some text saying Special Hit: 500 or so.



There are some pretty amazing sites in SWG and you can visit them and recieve badges for visiting them. They even put the escape pod of R2D2 and C3P0!



Sound



I'll not go into much detail here as I don't really pay attention to the sound and I don't have my speakers on all the time.
SWG's sound is reasonably good if you can't play a game without having sound turned on :). There is also music and it will change depending on the area you are in.



The sound effects are very good I must say and these I have to have on. I must say one of the best sound effects I think is the rifles sound when firing as I like that sound and it reminds me of the movies.



Final Notes



You can play SWG for hours on end without getting bored, as I do. And if you ever consider joinng the game please play Europe - Farstar Server or if you enjoy roleplaying I recommend the Pheonix RP City on the Farstar Server. send a "tell" to me using /tell Becen .



If you enjoy roleplaying like I do, visit the Be Sarat Slarat (sorry if I spelt it wrong) town 3000m outside Mos Eisley!

Xiah Online


FEATURE This is a nice game. It consists of 4 characters, warrior, swordman, mage and ghost fighter. This game needs time for u to level up but if a game is easy to level up, the game won't be nice to play will it?



The graphic is beautiful, amazing. U can adjust the graphic according to your computer specs. If u have a good com, u should put it to the max! If u just passed the requirement, it is better that u don't adjust the graphic.




The BGM/sound/song of the game is nice, almost everything has sound, the background music is pleasing, and it plays it on a good basis.



Overall, it is quite a nice game, u shuold play it if u love games that has a lot of monsters. Quite a nice game, i can tell.

World of Warcraft


FEATURE World of Warcraft is a MMORPG that is p2p. Great game, but does have it's problems.


Sound/background music I don't really pay much attention, but its great. I love the sound affects when swinging a sword or when an enemy dies, no problems here. 9/10


Gameplay Very fun, even when you first log on. I am currently a level 9 shaman, on blackrock server. I got into a great guild, 60 members currently. We plan to do FvF (Faction vs faction) raids. The big focus on WoW is the PvP and FvF aspects of it. A lot of fun :) When I was alliance (I'm Horde now) We had 25 Alliance against 50 horde...that turned out bad :P. I love all the skills too, shamans get totems, hunters can tame pets at level 10. Warlocks can summon demonic pets, etc...9.4/10


Problems/bugs Well, like all MMORPGs, there are bugs and problems. Currently, some classes are to powerful and people are leveling wayy to fast. One person already reached lvl 60 and game hasn't been out long. Also macros and other programs are out, but Blizzard is stopping those cheaters, which is good :) They haven't fixed the stuch bug, I got stuck once, but luckily they have a unstuck option. Other then that (and besides graphic bugs), haven't encountered any other problems/bugs. 6/10


Graphics http://www.flickr.com/photos/56871568@N00/ for a bunch of pictures. The graphics may not be up to date as other games and the cartoony stype turns some people away. I myself love them, I love echo island near the orc/troll starting place, beautiful place...a defenate have to visit (the monsters there are really tough so) But...there are graphics bugs. When running, sometimes you see your weapon go through you and low lvl capes aren't that great looking eather. 7/10


Overall/other Great game, with some problems, usually like MMORPGs when they are first released. A defenate must have, not many classes/races...but they are very hard to choose which one to play. They all fit someones play style. The community overall is great, but maybe thats cause I'm in a good guild :P If you ever log on to Blackrock server, feel free to message Vendayn :) 8.3/10

Dungeon Master Pro 2


FEATURE This Free Online Dungeons and Dragons Engine is awesome. Instead of having to meet up with a DM and other players in person, you can do it via the internet. The creator had an awesome idea to make this online. He now has about 10 more people playing because me and all my friends play now. If your a D&D or AD&D fan, you really need to check this out.

Apocalypse Beta


FEATURE Apocalypse



This game has progressed in the period of 3 years to a booming game in 6 months of an implementation. I played Version 3.5 and the beginning of the fourth age. The 4th age came and went due to bugs but releasing in 4 days from this post, it should be good from what I saw. Testers now say it is completely stable. Due to rushing it was bad when players entered, with 4 bugs bogging down gameplay, but now it is fine. The admin is friendly and players are pretty competitive. They added trading, alliances, private messages, improved attacking and also a new system to keep track of a province.



This game lost score because of course it is a beta and can improve and also the ages are too short in my opinion. I know the admin wants to give a chance for newbs to join but a month and a half is kind of short.



The good part is that between ages theres like a 1-2 week break. And new features come in quite often because it is a beta.



It isn't hard to learn, signup is easy, gameplay is fun and sometimes addicting, so overall its an 8.

World of Warcraft


FEATURE WoW, the best game i've played!

Gameplay: 10/10
If you HATE the hack-slash win xps yay i leveled then you'll LOVE WoW, because the combat system is WAY more complex. you can also, Fish, ( a personal favorite) and do MANY more professions ( I.e. Jobs to make $$ with) You can join guilds, Raid the other races and make them dance naked ( a Personal Hobby from Open Beta ) ( No offesense to night elf lovers :D ), and you can chat. There are quests but the first 20 are sry quest lovers but they are BORING!! Shamans warlocks and i think druids get special quests which are fun ( like totem quests as shamans I LOVE EM!). You can also just explore because you get XPS for finding new lands ( wierd eh?). So since you can do all this PLUS MORE TO COME LIKE HOUSES AND MAYBE marriage, this is going to be absolutily KICK ***.




Sound/Music: 8/10
If you love to explore you'll find the music very great because it varries from place to place, but if you stay at the same place for awhile you may want to TURN THE SPEAKERS OFF!!! Well thats pretty much it for this!



Graphics:10/10
Stunning, says Gamespot in the highest rated mmorpg review EVER! They are truly amazing. IF your horde its nothing special and you may wanna take a vacation to see the naked night elfs dance, i mean ERRRR A hum Ahum, to see their landscape.



Transportation: 10/10
This is aswome, you can fly on zepplins wierd bats, gryffins, gliders, mounts and more! Truly MUCH better then the 1 MPH walking you do!



Pets:10/10
Pets are actually VERY usefull in this game! YAY i love hunters but i play Shamans now, anyways you will love the pet system as a hunter because you can get Almost ANYTHING as a pet!!!



PvP: 100/10
This is the MAJOR part of WoW YES i did do 100/10 because i LOVE the PvP no matter what THERE is A point in leveling on none PvP servers because you can fight the other side of the force! ( hehe star wars galaxy blows :D) I love the PvP servers but i unfortunetly play on A PvE server atm!

Replay: 10/10
This is always rated high because all MMORPG's have updates and more... CANT WAIT TILL HOUSING!!!! hehe.

My Comments:

Anyways You should buy this game retail or not and try it. If you dont like leave the WoW forums because if you flame, about 1/4 million people will flame you azz to helll! I LOVE THIS GAME AND ITS second only to Asherons Call, ( I luv the skill system in that game but grandma took the accounts :( oh well) BUT i guess now WoW is 1st PLAY AND I WILL HELP YOU! JOIN THE PST SHADOWSONG SERVER!

Battle Of The Scripts


FEATURE An incredible online rpg. You start out with a lowly level 1 "BOT" For the first few levels you "train" against practice bots then after a small bit you can begin to fight other peoples bots to gain levels faster. You choose how you would like to diss your points making a dex, balanced, or str bot :)
it's all online and nothing to download. The game has a nice clan system as well as a great community. it consists of a blue and green version as well. It's been running smoothly for 2 and a half years now :)

Jumpgate, Episode 2 Attack of the Conflux


FEATURE Ok, so the title is sort of influenced by a well known series of films ;-) but it must be the greatest galaxy based mmorpg out there. Look past the tired graphics (it is 3 years old now!), and you will find a fantastic real time space sim, that relies totally on skill, and not who has the best skills or biggest ship. No point and click here, all done by you!



Jumpgate features 5 factions, of which 3 are playable, and have their own styles. Play the Solrain, a trader type faction, where the credits rule. Be a mining religious zealot, in the Quantar faction, or a warmongering combat orientated player from Octavia. Each has its own types of ships suited to their own unique personality.



Jumpgate has a lot to do too, mining, hauling for profit, killing the npc enemies, known as the conflux, and of course PvP. PvP in Jumpgate is definately better than in any other game. Skill is definately the requiement here, he with the biggest ship does not always win, a steady hand and a good aim is needed here.

The only minus for Jumpgate is it can be tough in the early stages, getting through the levelling treadmill can be laborious, and somewhat repetitive, but isnt that the case in most games? Besides, it is definately worth it, once you get the good stuff :-)

Overall, while it doesnt look as good as the latest releases, Jumpgate is an absolute must for the skill based rpg fans, who want more than Eve's point and click type gameplay. Give it a go, free download, free 10 day trial, what have you got to lose?



I don't work for them before you ask, but am a stalwart fan, who would LOVE to see more players, so drop by and give it a go.

The Kingdom of Loathing


FEATURE Hey guys, if you're ever sick of conventional RPG gaming, here's a new site for you to check out. It's called the Kingdom of Loathing. Originally founded by Jick, he didn't quite expect it to be a major hit with many people playing it. Recently, it has also gotten on Gamespot News and News.com, as it's a refreshing change to conventional RPGs.



It's essentially a parody, to say the least, and we are able to find, point, and laugh at the references given to other games, such as the Protagonist (Cloud) and his Ridiculously Large Sword, the Burly Sidekick (Barret). The pictures drawn and simple, but yet reflect deeper insights. To quote from one of the randomly random battles in the Kingdom:



"This is a white chocolate golem.
Chocolate is neither white nor chocolate. Discuss"



What other site would have gotten you to ponder harder than that? Hilarious classes available include the Disco Bandit, the Pastamancer and the Sauceror, each with their own unique stats.



The players are also very friendly in the chat, and a newbie should receive plently of help if he doesn't go against the rules and beg. I'm not considered as a very experienced player, but you can contact me ingame for help by locating either ResiLiang or Ghost of the English Language. (The latter was inspired by a similarly named Ghost in the Altar of Literacy)



So come and join the community now! You know you want to.
