MMO Endangered Species: The Healer


FEATURE

Remember when you were scouting around town in the middle of the night while spamming "LF HEALS" in world chat? Didn't help much did it? Today we're going to talk about one of the MMO world's endangered species-Healers. The number of healers is dwindling and there's nothing we can do about it. There will probably come a time when the game will be forced to enable potion spamming to ensure the survival of consumers. Come to think of it, some games already demoted healers as a secondary source of life, with macro'd potions that trigger everytime your health bar reaches a certain point.

Altis Gates Review: Well Blended


REVIEW

Altis Gates (not the Japanese car) is a new 2.5D MMORPG that's set in a world similar to that of a JRPG (Japanese RPG). Aside from the anime rendered PCs and NPCs, you'll notice that the monster references, as well as the background schemes resemble the modern "Tactics JRPGs" that we know and love. There are tons of familiar elements in this game, which makes it rather refreshing. The story revolves around the land of Altis where Humans, Elves, and Borgs have learned to prosper after  300 years of war (my, that's a pretty long time). The best part about this game is that they actually managed to implement some storytelling. It's not the best on the market, but I do appreciate the effort. Anyway, Altis Gates has got some interesting features, so let's not waste time.

Mini Fighter Review: Fight Until Death


REVIEW

When it comes to fighting themed MMOs, we've been given a lot of titles to choose from. Each title promises to bring an action-packed extravaganza that would leave you wanting  more, and most of the time they do deliver. Mini Fighter is a good example of one such action MMO. The game delivers non-stop action yet provides you with enough breathing space for you to enjoy the game's beauty aside from the flying fists of fury you will meet in the game.
