Dragon Warrior Land enters beta phase

By Heath | June 9, 2010 at 9:49 am

Our old buddy Tim has been hard at work developing an MMORPG set in an “alternate universe” tipping its hat to the Dragon Quest series. This 2D online adventure has the working title of “Dragon Warrior Land” and can be checked out at its official website. While still in development and testing, the game promises a main story as well as many sidequests, customizable player housing, and a balance between party and solo play. This is being made by the man who once taught me everything there was to know about Ultima Online, so I trust he knows a thing or two about what makes a quality MMORPG. Check it out and apply for the beta.

MMORPGs Will See Console Success

By Heath | March 26, 2010 at 11:18 am

Planet Xbox 360 makes the case that console MMORPGs “will always fail” in this fairly interesting perspective. I’ve learned to never say “never” (or um, “always,” as the case may be) in this business though. Before I go on, let it be known that I think the article is well-written and the author, Will Prusik, knows his stuff and expresses his points well. I do, however, politely disagree. I think MMORPGs are on their way to console success.
