Class Archetypes: The Cliché Of All Clichés


FEATURE

What's the difference between a Warrior and a Berserker? What about a Mage and an Elementalist? You might think that some MMO games have more classes than the rest, but the whole idea of 40 classes is just there to fool you. Technically, MMO games take a specific class and break it down into tiny mini classes. This means that a THIEF or ROGUE in general can be broken down into Shadow Dancers, Assassins, or even some other version of the class we haven't heard of before.

The MMO Bro Code Chapter 2: Roleplaying


FEATURE

What is an MMO Bro? Surely you know who your MMO Bros are. These are the cool people in your group of adventurers whom you call dude, Bro, or simply the ones who are there to help you out in your time of need. MMO Bros are all around us, and though not all MMO Bros know each other, they simply just know who's a Bro when they talk to one. Greetings my fellow Bro and welcome to Chapter 2 of our "Broscapades".

Pushing The Limits: Extending Lifespans


FEATURE

There comes a time in every MMOG (Massively Multiplayer Online Games) player's life when the idea of grinding and PVP becomes momentarily unbearable. Daily quests, interacting with guild mates, continuous raiding annoy the hell out of you due to their repetitive nature. When a player explores a game thoroughly, to a point where there's nothing left to do, you can't help but want to extend the game's lifespan by providing a series of gimmicks that will help it seem brand new--- or in a way, just different.  This is where idea of roleplay, and other player-based features kick in. By that I mean a roleplaying server does not really differ from the rest. The only difference between the RP ones and the regular servers is its player base.

From The Material To The Virtual


FEATURE

Back from school again. As I put aside my coat and backpack and head for the kitchen, I think over the stress of my day. Projects, tests, the usual stuff. I think about what I said to my friends, about the girl I want to ask out for coffee, I think about all the normal things a boy my age worries about, and then put it all aside. It'll have to wait, for now. I put some leftover pizza in the microwave for a few seconds. While I wait for my afternoon snack to heat up, I let out a sigh of relief.

MMOs Fulfilling Human Needs


FEATURE

No matter how successful you are in this world, you will never be a sword wielding hero in the midst of battle. This means that regardless of how big your establishments are, you are still bound to this mortal coil, as well as the laws of reality. You can't fly (unless you ride a plane of course), you can't bash heads and be praised for it, you can't steal money from chests you happen to find lying on the ground, and no you can't cast spells (screw David Blaine). Here we will discuss the relevance of video games, as it fulfills our inner most desires. This is not OZ anymore, and no way will you ever want to tap those shoes to get home again.

MMOs on Linux – More Choice Than You Think


FEATURE

Microsoft Windows is the most popular operating system in the world, with over 92% of computers running Redmond's desktop behemoth. If you are primarily a PC gamer, it is unlikely you have, or have ever considered, moving to a different operating system. Why subject yourself to the issues that  A completely new architecture, paradigm and approach to how computing should be for a user, would bring? All of your software won't work, your file formats won't be recognised, your games won't play, right? Not really. Deploying Linux on your hard drive has its advantages, and recent developments have meant that making the switch doesn't mean losing out.

The Age of Suffering: The Torture of MMOs


FEATURE

Tired of walking? Is the game being unfair for not granting you a mount until level 30? Are you running out of quests with seventy percent of your experience bar to fill? Well, suck it up, because you are now in the age of suffering O_O. MMOs tend to make your character suffer during their early stages. This makes creating a new character a bit troublesome for most people, especially if they are used to riding jetpacks or mounts to cover more ground. Where's that pet when you need it? How much more XP to the next level? Sorry my friend, but you'll just have to keep going until you can train your new skills. Join me as we point out the underlying torture schemes of the MMO world, shedding some light at what makes players squirm for progress.

Demon Lord Rises in OnRPG Office


FEATURE

Mystery packages are always welcome and this morning we had a huuuuge box waiting for us at the reception. The sender, Frogster in Germany, gave us a hint what it could be and imagine our glee when we saw that our hopes got confirmed:

Cash is King: The New Rulers of MMOs


FEATURE

Poor King Varian-although one formidable king has also been beaten by the power of cold, hard cash. This is one of the biggest problems in the MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) scene today. Games like World of Warcraft, Warhammer Online and Lord of the Rings Online are still trying to fight it, but most MMOs have come to accept that it is inevitable crime and will continue to be practiced regardless of legalities.

Blessings in Disguise: A Short Talk on Bugs and Exploits


FEATURE

MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) players are competitive by nature, be it PVP or PVE. There will always be an amount of pride rendered for how strong or able your character is. Epic Gear, Socket Gems, Cooler Mounts, Jet Packs, Everyone will do almost anything to acquire these things. There's nothing wrong with wanting to be strong really; however, it is also the same drive that makes people take the easy way out.

MACs and MMORPGs: Your Choice of MMO Games


FEATURE

Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple co., has always had the knack for often releasing new products. His line of apple computers may be very artistically efficient and generally more convenient than computers of the PC variety, it does lack some serious support for people who enjoy playing games. In lieu of this, people tend to stray away from purchasing a MAC in order to have a machine that supports the MMOS and other games they want to be able to keep playing.
