Archlord 2: A Tale of Two Grinds
Posted by MMORPG.COM News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 March 2015, 3:59 pm

A Tale of Two Grinds

This new iteration - Archlord 2 -- is set in the same setting as the previous version but in an alternate universe, sort of. I wouldn't worry so much about it because all of the lore and imagery of the game is really just a wrap around a series of button-pushing mechanics that only become half-fun once the player has spent hours and hours grinding bad, level-based quest after another (trust me, you won't even look at what the quests say, they are that repetitive.)




General: Getting to Know Moonrise

Getting to Know Moonrise

Moonrise first caught my eye with its distinctive art style. Really, it reminded me of Free Realms, one of my favorite casual MMOs that featured some of my favorite graphics. I'm a bit of a fan of stylized graphics. I also noticed that Moonrise offered monster collecting and combat, not something I am normally a huge fan of, but it looked so nice I continued to get excited.

The Daily Quest: Is Spielberg Right for "Ready Player One"?

Now that Steven Spielberg has been announced as the director for "Ready Player One", is he the right man for the job?? Personally, I am going to go with a big resounding YES. I know a lot of people talk about how he hasn't had very many great movies these days. If you think about the era of video games and pop culture that the book is about, Steven Spielberg is one of only a few people at the forefront of entertainment during that era.
