The lovely folk over at Eudemons have sent us an overview of their summer events!
When I was still in High school I was a big fan of Pokemon and Digimon. The two were then in their first season and I was very into the whole monster craze. However, among the two, I was more of a Pokemon player because of the GBA Pokemon game versions and the Trading Card Games (I used to be a pure psychic Pokemon TCG player). The Digimon franchise only had very expensive Digivices which was a glorified Tamagotchi toy.
Maybe it's just me, but being a thirteen year old without a credit card was excruciating. MMORPGs were spewing out left right and centre and my inability to cough up the subscription charges left me out in the cold. Six years ago, I couldn't wait to get my hands on the exciting titles everyone seemed to be hyping. The MMO boom was well underway, and I vaguely remember posting a "free MMORPG alternatives" thread on the OnRPG boards. Unfortunately, I soon realised that despite the enticing F2P tagline, adventuring into an online world for free does carry a price.
In an Internet era where the number friends on your Facebook accounts determines how popular you are, with its next update Runes of Magic will introduce a relationship system that allows two players to commit into a partnership. Depending on the relationship, players will then be rewarded with special in-game bonuses.
Combat Arms eclipses 4 million registered users in time for its second anniversary and offers exclusive items to celebrate.
The 4Story development team introduced a mini game to celebrate their 4story 2 year anniversary. Players can win unpredictable prices playing Rock Paper Scissors! Not just in-game coins but also lucrative items and mystery boxes can be won.
Kingory is the international version of the famous flash based MMO RXSG. The game is well known and is played by people all over the world, or so the it claims. The game revolves around ancient China, with structures that resemble ancestral Chinese buildings and characters that look like war emperors and empresses. In this game, players strive hard to build their war-worthy empire and try to best other players in battle. The game sports a strategic concept of game play (will be discussed later ), with a massive micro-managing system that is said to surpass a majority of browser games. It was said that Kingory sort of acts as the completed version of various games in terms of the traditional war based browser game system. Do other web games really lack so much compared to this game? Or is it just another claim that's yet to be proven?
Jon Peters, one of the game designers on Guild Wars 2 takes us into deeper into how death and resurrection will work in Guild Wars 2.
As we reported yesterday, Blizzard has announced that they will be introducing the use of real first and last names on their forums. That this has led to a huge outcry will not be a real surprise. Some of the events that took place since did shock us a bit.
Now the game looks much better than it did before, and all players seem to enjoy it. Another benefit is that we added a few features that allow us to have better quests, and an improved tutorial. The interface has been changed a bit too and now some tasks are easier, and being able to have emotes is quite nice.
According to the official announcement, the first expansion pack of Dragon's Call titled "Clash of Guild" is scheduled to be released in July.
