Why do I sign my posts "~Ripper" if my handle is "rhinok"? I originally joined mmorpg.com in order to secure a beta spot for some game (can't remember which one, so I just created a handle. I've used Ripper McGee as a forum handle for years on the NCSoft boards (CoH, Dungeon Runners, Exteel) . "Ripper McGee" was the name of my first character (on my own account) on CoH years ago. I've also used the name as a pen name for a few reviews and editorials I've written. So, rather than create a new identify on mmorpg.com, I just sign all posts as Ripper, which is essentially my "gamer tag".

  • @Alphamojo and @afoaa  You can't just "also play it on an android device"...  The distinction is the Spacetime Studios "legend" games are mobile device MMOs (for both Android and iOS) that can also be played in Chrome, not the other way around... @…
  • Had this video been the first teaser announcement  for TESO people would be going nuts!  Unfortunately, timing is everything and since TESO was already announced a while ago and there have already been several dev posts on it, the teaser seems point…

  • Originally posted by ameeny It’s a shame that a complete title with a complex world has been shut down. Will it be opened again or turned into a bubble for good? Who knows? It wasn't a complete title.  Under Sparkplay, it was a beta product . San…
  • Originally posted by CraveMode its ok, if you ever played Vampire Wars on Facebook and Mafia Wars, its like a glorified version of those. You have energy and you have to do missions on this map, run out of energy then you cant do the mission.. th…
  • Actually, "pro" seems to be the new hip term going around high school right now.  My daughter says it all the time and it makes me nuts!
  • Originally posted by adam_nox ncsoft had signed an agreement with sony to bring several mmo's to the ps3, of which they've delivered none. perhaps they want to avoid a breach of contract by taking this crapware and shoveling it onto ps3 before s…
  • "Best" depends on the game.  You cannot apply a concept of "best revenue model" to every single game, because most of them were developed around a specific model already. 
  • Started playing again last week and started a new character.  Killed Lord Nightshade and found his chest.  Used it twice for a total of 150 crowns and saw how easy it is to spend a lot of crowns in a very short amount of time.  Still think it's the …
  • I did the same thing over a year ago.  With all the hype, the f2p re-release, negative word-of-mouth, etc..., I figured the only way to really find out about the game was to play it ,so I did.  What I found was a game I enjoyed, but also felt was fl…
  • There was never any true closed or open "beta", unless you're referring to the "early access", which essentially amounted to an extended paid closed beta?
  • @ Archeminos - it didn't fail the first time.  The parent company went under.  The game wasn't ever fully finished and never left beta testing under Flagship.  The Frogster/Hanbitsoft version failed, although there's currently a version still runnin…
  • I love grouping with my son!  We've been playing since beta and love Wizard101!  In my case, I typically travel once a month and it's great to be able to connect with him when I'm on the road just like we were in the same room together.  Wizard101 r…

  • Originally posted by ActionMMORPG That was fast.  I admit the game was under my radar.  I don't play much so most of the games I see advertisements and forum posts, that's it.   It's a shame to see that much work go to waste. Considering My…
  • Personally, I love the game, although I recognize it definitely needs a lot more work.  Faxion was underfunded, underdeveloped (due to time constraints, not effort) and released to the public far too early, unfortunately. It has so much potential, b…
  • Originally posted by Feverfew Facebook is a fucking cheap way to advertise their game <.< You can't login using your Facebook account without stuff about the game being posted on your wall. Actually, that's not true.  The only thing t…
  • Ouch - rough review.  Some of it is pure hyperbole wrapped in pretention (the entire Aesthetics section) and some of it is just plain wrong (the Value section), but there are definitely factual elements, too. Regarding the Aesthetics: 1)  Cut t…
  • Originally posted by Pingmeister The Open Beta is in progress.  Played for an hour or so today.  No idea about PVP though. Kind of.  Yes, beta is open now (it wasn't when I posted above), but it hasn't really been publicized.  Per the Lead Desi…
