Capcom Japan Dragon's Dogma Online is one of my favorite games that I've tested this year! I've never played the original Dragon's Dogma so the combat mechanics and monster climbing was all new to me. I was a bit blown away and instantly became so addicted that I ended up leveling two of the four playable classes during the Closed Beta and played through all of the CBT1 content. The World - MMORPG or MORPG? One of the most commonly asked questions from my viewers and readers about Dragon's Dogma Online is what kind of world does it have to offer? The most simple answer I can give you is that the game falls in between Action MMORPG and Action MORPG genre.

While we did do a weekly news video just yesterday condensing most, if not all interesting MMORPG news within the week, it just so happens that a little bit more snuck out! Which is of course never a bad thing, so without further ado let’s get started. The first bit of news I’ve got that’s pretty awesome, especially for those of you who’ve played the MapleStory in the past but also for those of you that have been waiting for MapleStory 2 to finally come out in English. Now while I will point that it isn’t 100% confirmed it is likely and therefore worth mentioning. So it’s speculated that at the Maplestory Fest on the 14th of April the MapleStory team will be doing a live Q&A session where they’ll have an exclusive announcement. That is of course not the only reason many people believes its coming out but also because Nexon America is now hiring for new testers, all of this happening not long after the game launched in China, which is … [Read more...] about Is MapleStory 2 Finally Coming Out In English (NA) Soon?
