I bet that everyone these days can hear things like "New Unreal Engine 3 based MMO" or "Next gen MMORPGs that uses Unreal Engine 3". And then some of questions appear on our minds like "What is Unreal Engine 3 after all?" and "What kind of changes or improvements it will bring tho MMOs?". To clear some of this questions I will try to explain in a simple way what UE3 is and what changes it'll bring to the games that uses it.
What is Unreal Engine 3?
"The Unreal Engine is a popular game engine developed by Epic Games. First illustrated in the 1998 first-person shooter game Unreal, it has been the basis of many games since, including Unreal Tournament, Turok, Mass Effect, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas, America's Army, Red Steel, Gears of War, BioShock, BioShock 2, Tactical Ops: Assault on Terror, Mirror's Edge and so forth. Although primarily developed for first-person shooters, it has been successfully used in a variety of genres, including stealth (Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell), MMORPG (Vanguard: Saga of Heroes) as well as RPGs with Mass Effect, The Last Remnant, and Harry Potter and the
As EVERYONE expected, the release date of Aion: The Tower of Eternity showed at Amazon.com (October 30) was a mistake.
Now they've come with another release date, which might be the true one this time, according to Amazon.com, Aion is scheduled to be release at May 26, 2009. The price and box art remains the same, and any other information about the Collector's Edition or the contents of the boxes was reveiled yet. Now only we can do is wait for some official news from ncSoft. I hope there'll be at least an US Open Beta.

R.O.S.E.(Rush On Seven Episodes) Online is a well-known game in NA produced by GRAVITY corp., the same company that brought the famous MMORPG called "Ragnarok Online". As you can see, the universe of ROSE is divided in 7 parts, or 7 Planets, your mission is to visit and explore the 7 planets searching for a way to destroy the Evil that threats all mankind. The game has been up since 2006 and in 2007 it start to be called "ROSE Online Evolution", this new era brought to the many updates, like the new User Interface. This game is a colorful one, the graphics could seem a little childish, but don't be mistaken, the Gameplay of ROSE online is advanced as a lot of new MMORPGs that you can find out there. Something I didn’t like in this game was the movement, the character moves slow and you need to go through long distances sometimes, making you buy a lot of Teleport scrolls just to go to the cities. The quests are ok and have a good storyline so far , and you will gain a good amount of exp by grinding too. One bad thing about this game is the fact that you can only select from 3 Main classes, which will be upgraded to another Job (Something like th
Q-World is a new MMORPG created by Beijing Perfect World Co. the same company that created the well-known game Perfect World. Q-World assimilated the "Perfect World system", so many features are just the same in both games, even some shortcuts are the same, so, if you like Perfect World, you won't regret playing this game. But what catches the eye in Q-World it's the Magical System that allows you to transform in almost everything like monsters, trees, and even a Chocobo!!
You just need the right item and then you can start the "Morph Party" lol
The game is in its CB phase, you can Register in the official website, download the game and play it, I guess you don't need a Key to do so, at least I didn't.
The graphics' style is 3D and anime-like, the water effect is as good as in Perfect World, the cute characters and their clothes could atract more the Female Public, the game has pretty emoticons too. Something you'll miss in this game is the advanced character customization present in Perfect World, here you can basically change the hair and the face of your character, however, there is a large variety
Everyone by know should be thinking: "What a freakin' game is Blood & SOuld, huh? Oh gosh it is made with Unreal Engine 3!!! It sould be damn good!", that for sure will put one of our beloved game, AION: The Tower of Eternity in such a "fame crisis", although they're both from ncSoft, it'll be hard to pick both of them at once, gladly, they won't get released at the same time, and people could enjoy the 2 games when the time allows, but, let's take a look at some aspects of these wonderful games.
AION: The Tower of Eternity
AION was said to be the MMORPG with the most wonderful graphics ever done, but looks like ncSoft turned its own table, since Blood and Soul's graphics could be equalized to AION's graphics. AION has its Air Combat, which makes this game really unique(especially the PvP), you can attack your foes in the air from different angles at the same time that you can fly freely to avoid the attacks. The differences between the two Factions in the game only make things better, Elyos and Asmodian fight with each other for the world's supremacy, what will lead to warriors between Factions as well as some adrenaline to th
Granado Espada: Esa Promesa
Esa Promesa (This Promise), is for sure the best song in Granado Espada, at least for me, hehe. This song is composed by the renowed music productor S.F.A. which is organized by Savin from soundTEMP, this song is a rock song with a touch of rap in the beggining, the language of the music is korean, as well as a lot of GE's songs. I simply love hearing this music while Im in a dungeon or grinding some monsters in GE. So, check out this amazing song by GE as well this amazing game with an awesome Soundtrack.
Disgaea 2: Sinful Rose
Sinful Rose (Tsumi na bara), is a music performed by the japanese singer Yoko, and it is presented on the game Mankai Senki Disgaea 2. What makes this song so special is its unique latin rhytm, I guess this music is about a woman who doesnt want to be controled by her love, and try to succed by all means. It is perfect for the hostil atmosphere of the game, where the demons rules all over the world, and everybody needs to watch out for their own lives, and the destiny of all of them are in the hands of a woman and her friend(or should I say... lover? XD)
