Marvel Heroes is a free to play action-packed MMO game created by David Brevik, the visionary behind Diablo and Diablo 2.
In the year 2022, the Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (VRMMORPG), Sword Art Online (SAO), is released. With the Nerve Gear, a virtual reality helmet that stimulates the user’s five senses via their brain, players can experience and control their in-game characters with their minds.
On November 6th, 2022, SAO released with a limited number of copies totaling 10,000, which is quickly sold out. On launch day the players logged on only to discover a short time later that they are unable to log out of the game. At the end of the first day, the game’s creator welcomes them to “his world” and informs the players that it is not a bug that is preventing them form leaving, but a feature of the game as he intended. He is holding them captive and reveals the only way out is to reach the 100th floor of the game’s tower and defeat the final boss. However, if their HP reaches zero, they not only die in the game, they die in the real world too. Also, if any attempt is made to remove or shut down the Nerve Gear the real world, they will also die. The story follows main protagonist Kirito, who is a “solo” player and has been branded a “beater” by the other players early on, (a player who was a beta tester for SAO, and thus branded a cheater due to their advanced knowledge of the game). When it is announced that the players of Sword Art Online can no longer log out, he is distraught like everyone else, but quickly overcomes the shock. He power levels to improve his odds of survival in the game, quickly emerging as a frontline clearer of floors known as the Black Swordsman.
I really fell in love this series as it has a realistic take on what it would be like on people if they were trapped in such a situation, how the psychological aspects of the game can have an effect the human psyche. It’s no longer a game, it real to them.

Sword Art Online (ソードアート・オンライン) is a Japanese light novel series by Reki Kawahara, which has been adapted into manga, an anime and a video game. You can watch Sword Art Online for free at Crunchyroll (with ads & some restrictions). I’ll post some 48 hour passes in the forms that removes ads & allows higher resolution streaming.
So it’s winter and we need a gathering. I don’t think we’re up for a huge gathering this year, as I don’t have connections in town for any spaces and such. So… I think Clove and I are going to have a gaming weekend at our place instead. Board games, some consoles, magic, etc.
We’re thinking January 4/5/6
So what are your thoughts Moodlers? Comments? Suggestions?
As you probably know, Natural Selection 2 is an indie developed RTS/FPS mash up.
Unknown Worlds had a great idea to populate their game upon launch. Anyone who pre-purchased Natural Selection 2 has received a giftable free copy of the game, as of a couple weeks ago. 45 thousand copies apparently.
I got in on the 3 day head start & it is fun, it’s different. It feels like a blend between single player & MMO, & the more I play, the more fun it gets, example; I was just running along after finishing some other business, & I spotted some players escorting a caravan, so I helped! No need to grab a quest, fight monsters with no rewards, no need to party up, (you can though), you just dive in. I didn’t have too, I could have ran along my merry way with out a care, but I felt compelled to help, so I did & it was fun! That is just one example of what makes this game so enjoyable, there are countless more.
Click the logo to find out more, it officially launches this Tuesday.
/ps: To me, it only feels like Guild Wars 1 in lore, there might be some similarities, but it’s been so long since I played the original that I can’t say for sure, whatever it was if there was something, it was likely what worked, if that makes any sense. So if you were like me & did not really enjoy GW1, then you’re in luck, because I’m having a blast.
As giddy as I was over the updates that Cataclysm brought, Mists of Pandaria brings the story back to it’s roots, WarCraft roots, Humans Vs. Orcs, Alliance Vs. Horde, war is coming, & I’m exited as hell. I’ve seen past the Kung Fu Panda/Pokemon crap that haters spout & seen it’s potential, besides, the Pandaren were around long before Po. Anyway, I am going to enjoy it, & that’s all that matters.
I also might enjoy Guild Wars 2 at the same time! *GASP*
A lot has changed since the early days of WoW, which makes me think, some of you left in the old days because you were annoyed with the old ways, now that it’s changed… maybe… not likely, that’s what I thought.
On the other side of this coin, I get annoyed when people get all nostalgic for the good old days & that WoW is too easy now, it’s for kids, (/facepalm, it’s always been for kids, IT’S RATED T FOR TEENS!), or what ever. Funny thing is if you ask anyone that’s played from the start, a lot of it was shit. I may not have play as long, but I remember things, like having to level weapons, do you know how annoying it is when you find a great weapon of a class you haven’t used yet, go learn it, then level it till it was usable at your level… oh glory days. Then people bitch that Dungeon/raid finder makes it too easy! Yes, I heard it was so fun rounding up 40 people with nothing but chat.
Sorry, sorry. I get a little pissed with the internet sometimes, & all these people bitching, if you don’t like it, stop playing, go away, why are you paying for something you bitch about so much, why do you have a character at max level will full endgame gear on if you hate it so damn much?! WHY?!
