More MMORPG goodness
January 19th, 2003

Though I'm a big MMORPG player (played Everquest for over 2 years), I wish some of today's MMOGs would do more than copy what works and not find ways to improve on the genre.

Thankfully, games such as Shattered Galaxy and A Tale in the Sand are trying something new. There's no improving on something without attempting at least everything once. These games are paving the way for future games, showing us what works and what doesn't. Though A Tale in the Sand is ending Beta 3 and will go live soon with a monthly fee, Shattered Galaxy still have their downloadable demo that everyone should give a try. It's worth the time and even Stephen Harris agrees with his review of the game.

All this to say that I wish more MMOGs start trying to be innovated before profitable. Also, it takes more than stunning graphics to hook a player for the long run, lets hope people start realizing that.

But enough about that, lets go on with the great reads I have in store for you.

First off, Stephen continues his Fan Fic based on a MMORPG I'm currently addicted to, Anarchy Online. Brotherhood, Betrayal and Redemption is a great story that surrounds the journey of an Atrox. If you think his reviews are creative and full of life, wait till you see him try.

A big fan of The Legend of Zelda, I quite enjoyed Kris' take on Link. Great dialogue and story helps make this a wonderful read. Regrets will be in a number of updates since it is rumored to be over 100 pages long. But with her skills, I no doubt will be enthralled every page of the way.

Solphie continues to mix it up with Lifestream based on some Final Fantasy games. Wait till you see who's back!
