First, the obvious negative from the start includes the gender and race-locked classes. I am not so much into this feature, since the limitation is to make sure Forsaken World is not 10 GB in size and cause massive lag on the battlefields since the connection has to render so many different characters. It makes up with the typical in-depth character customization feature though. I do know a little lore about Forsaken World (PC version), and apparently this new mobile version is a prequel as we see the founding fathers of each race. Cool! … [Read more...] about – PC MMORPG dives into the mobile world for a second time

And you don’t have to be a wiz at Second Life or a huge horse lover to enjoy these horses. I took Syn and Amoon (neither who had been to SL in a while) to the demo section and we all rode around on the horses for a while one night. Seemed like they enjoyed it (when Syn wasn’t leaping off the edge of the sim into the ocean). … [Read more...] about Second Life: Finding Water Horse
#1: Star Wars GalaxiesIf you didn’t see that coming, you don’t know me at all. So, hello! Pleased to meet you. Basically, you can sum up the reason as: I got to live in the Star Wars universe. And I mean live in it. SWG was a living, breathing world filled with characters who made it come alive with all their personal lives and stories. It was everything I love about movies, books, and theater all wrapped up together without the monotony of predictability! I could sit back and watch stories unfold, or I could be a part of them. Unlike books and movies, I didn’t know what would happen next, because with the variable of so many individuals involved, there were many twists and turns and surprises. I know it wasn’t the exact experience of everyone, but the combination of everything — my class, me, the mechanics, the setting, the community — made it perfect for me to be able to live and roleplay in the world fully without mechanics getting in the way. Let … [Read more...] about Massively Overthinking: Our five favorite MMORPGs of all time
Back when mesh heads were first introduced, I picked one up. It was far better than the default style play-doh face avatars you got out of the box. It came with a HUD that allowed for minor facial expressions and some other options. But for the most part, the mesh was static. And if someone bought the same head as you… you had the same face. Nothing you could about that. … [Read more...] about Second Life: Bento is Pure Magic!
In reality, and as described through his Facebook, the instruments that Soule is inventing sound insanely difficult to build and will be available for other musicians to purchase once they are refined. One instrument, for instance, aims to reduce the mechanical tones of synthesized music by utilizing a breathing tube, allowing the artist to give a more natural feel instead of the on/off binary style of standard keyboard synth. Regardless, backers weren’t too happy to find out that not only was Soule crowdfunding his campaign knowing that it wouldn’t be completed until nonexistent technology was invented, but didn’t really bother explaining that caveat to his backers when he gave the very generous anticipated date of September 2013. … [Read more...] about Crowdfunding Fraudsters: Jeremy Soule and The Northerners, a Five Year Ballad
