I was just writing about this on the Penny Arcade forums. It looks like a game built not around combat, but around multiple channels of content that will all be equally viable. Which is sort of a fancy way of saying "Hey, Look! I can have fun the way I want to!"

I'm curious to see how it shakes out. I like the fantasy/modern mix, and the multi-classing that is easy enough for anyone to do. I'd enjoy seeing a new casual game like this open the market up a little bit and give designers something to think about.

I was wondering when consoles would pick up the idea of mmo's. Looks like ps is taking steps to be one of the first. Interesting to say the least... Nice post


Hey guys! Found this on twitter this morning, and thought I'd pass along:

Should have expected this comment from a WoW site...

Final Fantasy Online was the first multi-platform MMO, and still is. The game has been going strong for over 7 years now. It was originally released for the PS2, and is now playable on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 (direct port of the PS2 version,playable on PS3).

However, I do agree, I am glad to see other MMOs being distributed for console gamers to enjoy.

Had a chance to catch the pop/rock band The Dares perform their original theme song for Free Realms at Sony's E3 Booth yesterday, and they sounded great! After their performance, the band was also given an award by Guinness World Records for being the first band to perform live simultaneously on stage and in virtual space within the game at Snow Hill. Very cool idea for E3, and the game is wonderful too. You can check out the band here:


I love gaming, but hate MMO's, but his one is different. Really enjoyable, only the first one or two hours are a bit boring. But once you get throught that you have an awesome game with lots of oppurtunities, quests and jobs. And more than 70% is free, something whats also nice :)
