Is mmorpg.com only promoting unimagiative non thinking out of the box MMOs, are sites like these part of the problem. Let's take a game that starts it's US beta today. It's a fully sandbox mmo with no levels and no classes where all items in the game are crafted by the players.
If you become a blacksmith and make a blade you will have to find a another player who is a wood worker to make the hilt, you rely on other players for crafting.
You have land control and a vast world that is FFA PVP and no safe areas. You can also open stores where even if you are logged off your character stays in the game to man your store. You also have a kidnapping system where you can kidnap offline players but you are instantly flagged and wanted through a bounty system.
Now why hasn't mmorpg.com done a live review of this game or got someone playing the beta which starts today?
I think that MMORPG.COM is less incline to promote non western games. Yes ArcheAge is at the top of the hype list but from what i've been told they didn't even know anything about ArcheAge and had be told about the game by members of this site.
Only then did they give it it's own forum.
This game i'm going to link has a cashshop that is only Vanity items. A few months ago a player bought a sword for a silly price but the sword gave no extra stats other than looking good and glowing.
Watch the whole of this vid and as why mmorpg.com is not doing a review of this game now at the first US beta starting today.
Sandbox players have been asking for a game like this..
