Revelations has been a very enjoyable experience in the 2-3 weeks that I've been playing, for the most part I've had nothing but praise for the game outside of a few things in the game that has bugged me, but outside of that it's been quite a refreshing MMO that's kept me with a bunch of things to do every single day in the game, one of the best things for me is that there has been an almost non-existent focus on "accept quest>kill mobs>return and hand in>repeat 500 times till level cap"; I was wanting to give this game a proper review at some point soon, but with this rearing its ugly head so early into the games life span...I feel that this has already took precedence.

Today came the maintenance that had also appeared with an unannounced patch that already

Well we can thank the stars. Nothing in the cash shop is pay2win heavy. Ofcourse you have the exp boosters and upgrade modifiers. Those are borderline, but I can live with those. But no where in the shop is actual gear or starter gear. That is something I will never agree with.

I went ahead and gave you guys a look at the clothes and wings. That we can pick up and mess around with enjoy.

Rift Store Walkthrough Not so pay2win after all

So we all know by now Rift went free to play. With it came the ushering in of the games Rex Store. Rex Exchange better known as Rex to the community. REX is an item that can be purchased with real money, which can be traded and sold in-game amongst players, and can be exchanged for Credits and Loyalty.

Credits are what the store actually uses as currency. Rex which you can buy turns into 1250 credits. Credits you can buy directly if you wish but can't be traded like Rex can in the auction house. So say if you want the entry level cheapest credits 5 dollars will get you 750 credits.If you would like to go for a bit more the next level is 20 dollars for 3250. 

The prices for the items in the store seem right on point. A few things make you say dafuq why is this that expensive? But in all a good job was done on pricing. Now at first glance looking at everything with a wide eye. I was like wow they put every damn thing into the store. And I was like mg! When I see an item say "Chance

Upset Over Guild Wars 2 Cash Shop Leak

By: End_Break_Fomar in Guild Wars 2posted at 2:49 pm Mar 23,2012

Tags: Gems  Guild Wars 2  Microtransactions  cash shop 


In their newest blog post, Arenanet explained they are testing microtransactions in this month's closed beta. Apparently, someone did not like what they saw and leaked it. I don't either, but I guess I should add the disclaimer that this is a beta cash shop. Or should I say a beta cash shop leak. Not sure where the leak was first posted, but the photo source is from a GWO user who reposted it from another site.

Arenatnet's stance from the pre-leak blog article - "We think players should have the opportunity to spend money on items that provide visual distinction and offer more ways to express themselves. They should also be able to spend money on account services and on time-saving convenience items. But it’s never OK for players to buy a game and not be able to enjoy

Luna Plus is shutting down

gPotato announced the closure of their anime inspired MMO Luna Plus.

They are offering their customers compensation packages, which differ from user to user (amount of money spent in the game's cash shop). It's always sad to see a game close down, but for every game that shuts down at least one or two new ones open. I only hope that the compensation packages will be sufficient for the users who spent quite a lot of money in the game.

CCP and EVE Online, on the road to Greed Land or Hell????

Hey peeps... EVE Online have been a niche game for a lot of time, the game is successful and keep growing slowly each year... I think CCP is one of the most dedicated developers out there... or at least they used to be...

Recently with the addition of the NeX cashshop and the release of the "Greed is good.pdf"... It looks like this company is no longer the friendly developer they used to be...

After reading the document, I realize that CCP possibly have an economical and financial necessity, unfortunately it looks like they want to force the player base into agreeing with their needs and business model. Look what happend with APB and RTW, they had certain economical needs and the community didnt gave a damn about it...

Unfortunately for them, people dont take kindy when you have

3 Things MMORPGs overuse

By: LalaAbc in defaultposted at 3:42 pm Nov 01,2009

This is my first article, so please don't judge me really harshly. I'm just expressing my opinion. And if you say, "Who cares about your opinion?", then let me just say that I care about my opinion.Here are some things MMORPGS overuse:


1. Skimpy, half naked girls

Perfect World Elf

     Maybe you've never seen an MMORPG with girls with skimpy armor or clothes on, or maybe you have. I'm sick of all the skimpiness and revealing nature of those girls. I see them everywhere. A good example is the Perfect World International advertisements, with the elf and all. And the advertisements for Evony are too revealing as well. I understand it's to draw people in, but really! Think of something else other than that dirty, ecchi, and disgusting fanservice.


2. Grinding

Waste your life, man. Waste your life.

     Who hates grinding? I do. Yes, I have lived for many years with grinding in DOMO, but that's about as much as I can take. You spend hours of your life, trying to level up your character. But for what? Money? Fame? Friends? Items? To get a life? Of course, the answers vary according to the person. What if you want an item and it took your 4 months to get it. Then they come out with
