Camelot Unchained

In 2001 Mythic brought the world Dark Age of Camelot an MMO that has been going for over 15 years. It had 3 realms or Factions based in the world of the Arthurian Legends, Hibernia with its aesthetics of Elves, Midgard with its Trolls and Viking Norse and last but not least Albion the lands of Arthur from these a player could choose from with a vast amount of Races and Classes. Fast forward to 2016 City State Entertainment announces its new game Camelot Unchained and on its team former employees of Mythic Entertainment.

Being called the spiritual Successor to DAOC, Unchained will also have the 3 Faction system called “Tri Realms” with the same setup The Vikings, Arthurian’s and the Tuatha De Danann aka the Celts. The mmo will feature many classes and races but with one major difference CU is all about the PVP. Most of the game will be about Crafting and Trading and War. Your faction versus the other 2 factions so on and so on. Looking to be released in 2017 Im sure this game will be a fantastic try and hey who knows you may see me on its battlefields.

Wonder and Amazement that allows you the player to delve deep into a world of Fantasy and Adventure. I am of course talking about the MMO. Over 30 years ago nobody had ever dreamed of being able to get on a Personal Computer and log onto the internet and enjoy hours of adventure with hundreds to thousands of other gamers it was just unheard of.

In 1986 “GemStone” was credited as the worlds first MMO it was a MUD with walls of text and script. Almost 30 years later the Library of MMO’s are counted in the 100’s.Some of the games have fallen off int to Obscurity and some have lived on as spiritual successors of other                                                                                                               games and each year they come and go.

The success of the MMO can most likely be traced back to MERIDIAN 59 and then later to the more popular game EVERQUEST. These games being credited for Divorces, Loss of jobs and sometimes even suicide due to people being hooked on them for hours on end and there extreme popularity.

Here is a list of the most popular mmo’s for the last 30 years.

Meridian 59, Everquest 1 and 2, Ultima Online, Underlight, Neverwinter Nights, Eve Online, Star Wars Galaxies, Star Wars the Old Republic, Dark Age of Camelot, Runescape, Final Fantasy XI and XIV, Everquest Online Adventures (PS2), Phantasy Star, Matrix Online, Anarchy Online, World of Warcraft, Aion, Terra Online, Guild Wars 1&2, LineAge 1&2, City of Heroes, DC Universe Online, Ragnarok Online, Maple Story, StarTrek Online.

Today the MMORPG is a staple of most online gamers and is considered the most go to Genre of game and will most likely continue being that way for a long time especially as Virtual Reality takes hold. What does the future hold for the MMO.

Thank you for reading and taking this trip down memory lane with me.

MU Online has been a game that has endured the Ages. Spanning more than 13 Years and is still kicking. Webzen is bringing the world a new and exciting MMORPG called Mu:Legends or as its commonly nicknamed MU2 to the MMO table.

Dark and Light MMO

Sometimes a game comes along with major potential and leaves as soon as its released or completely off the radar of gamers. Well that was the case with Dark and Light back in 2006. The games original feel was like Everquest met Ark Survival and was very enjoyable but was extremely buggy and was felt programmed in haste. The technology for a game of its magnitude just want there in 2006 and it led to many bad reviews.  Here now almost ten years later in 2016 a surprise was shown and what could that be a trailer for Dark and Light re-released with brand new up to date Graphics and now with technology being as it is I think this game is ready to take on the world of MMO’s. Originally released by Reunion Island and shut down it                                                                                                                  2008 it looks like Snail games is breathing new life into this game.

Star Trek Online : 6yrs and Still Going

I can remember it clearly over 6 years ago when I waited for the day STO servers would open and I could start my own Star Trek Adventure. The game has had many mini expansions or also known as Episodes which add many great new ships and stories to the game for you to experience. Early Sept 2016 STO seen its launch to console both on PS4 and XB1 which will allow a new set of captains to experience the game for the first time.

From the first moments you start the game you create your character from one of the  3 factions Federation, Romulan, Klingon and then as one of the Iconic races from the show over its many generations or customize one to your liking with a creation system that can rarely be matched by any game still to date. Your class is one of the three genre of jobs from the show as a Red Shirt – Command/Security, Blue Shirt – Science/Medical, Yellow shirt – Engineering/Technical Sciences.

You get a ship and can unlock more as you level in the game everything from small escorts with a lot of firepower to large star ships with a lot of health or a hybrid of science ship and escort the options are endless and there is an option for every gamer. But the game doesn’t stop there you fully customize your ships gear and items so you will almost never have the same setup as your friends or fellow gamers.

You play in space as your ship with crew and abilities or on the ground on away missions or with your friends in fun and engaging stories and side quests. So go give STO a try if you have never played it. Free-To-Play no subscription required.

Crowfall are you ready ?

In early 2015 a game was hinted to the internet thru Kickstarter something akin to a new genre with an old school feel. What game am I talking about you might ask well its Crowfall a game created by ArtCraft a Company started by two of the gaming industries finest developers J.Todd Coleman and Gordon Walton who have both worked on some of the greatest games to ever grace the MMO world such as Star Wars Galaxies and Ultima Online. Collectively they came up with a great idea to bring MMO gaming back to its roots and to allow new gamers and veterans to experience what mmo’s used to be. Crowfall is basically many things and cannot be summed up but I will try. Imagine Game of Thrones met Eve Online and had an affair with Star Wars Galaxies and somehow had something akin to a Dungeons and Dragons Baby thats about as best I can describe it.

The world of Crowfall has campaigns, these scenarios differ from type to type and can change how the game is played from allowing you to take some gear into the world with you that you have accumulated to throwing you into the world with rags. The campaigns also vary in rule sets from Guild vs Guild pvp to open world pvp to PVE game play that has you and your friends versus the denizens of the world. At a certain set time the campaign ends and you start all over again. You keep all of your gear you accumulated in the campaign and return to your own world were you create and build your own living breathing playing field with castles, homes, shops and Armory’s and much much more.

This living space is called the Eternal Kingdom and it is yours and yours alone, allowing friends a bit of space in the world could see you as a lord of your own land. You can chose who enters and who cannot which builds a wonderful place for you to hang out with friends and guild mates. Classes in the game vary from the traditional RPG classes such as Rogue and Wizard types to new classes that wield just flames and one that sees you as a Centaur with a bow and sword. As you gain levels in the skills in the game you can continue the growth of your characters class becoming a new class altogether. The game does not have traditional levels but starts you out at max level. However you have to spend real time learning the next level of an ability or leveling the ability by using it. You can set a skill to be learned while your offline to continue your characters growth so you dont have to spend countless hours in game grinding the skills which will be a big sigh of relief for players who work or just dont have the time to play like Hardcore players. Gear is crafted in the game by players and can be found also by killing npc’s in some campaigns your gear will literally drop off of you if you die by a player so stocking up on your favorite sword will be a must. There is tons more I could talk about but this is mainly just scratching the surface. If you are interested head over to www.crowfall.com and pre order or just check out what more it has to offer.
