When it comes to MMORPGs, nothing makes everything less linear than a fresh non-medieval setting away from dungeons and (woot) kobolds. If you're tired of swashbuckling inside the king's courtyard, then perhaps this game can keep you company with its futuristic appeal. Neocron 2 is a post-apocalyptic MMORPG that takes over its previous installment, taking players into a dark delinquent future where danger lurks at every corner. Here players will behold an almost red-light-district world, similar to the cyberpunk future brought by the Fallout series with a mix of Samurai Jack (yes, the cartoon) and Duke Nukem 3D. I really don't know why MMOs don't respect the possibilities of us having a bright future, but it does seem cooler that way. The game has been getting some mixed reviews so far, and I just had to see it for myself.
