No, I'm not kidding. I don't think you can even make this kind of stuff up. A dude out there actually went out and made an honest-to-god MMO version of Asteroids. In case you're too old to remember the classic, Atari released the original version of Asteroids back in 1979 and is widely regarded as one of the most popular and influential games of the Golden Age of Arcade Games. How popular? Really popular. They managed to sell over 70, 000 arcade cabinets.

    Nice find!

     

    Sent the link to our internal gaming/OT mail list. Very curious as to how this affects the usual lunchtime EVE/WoT/LoL gaming today. :)

    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

    Indeed, but it'll probably get ruined by the cash shop.

    Nice, passed 1.5h of boredom with this game. Fun but could be more fun with more players than the max of 5 i saw and a few more additions. But after all just a demo.
