Recently I’ve been cruising back through Aion’s soundtrack and made a discovery that, in hindsight, seems obvious: There are several different main theme songs for the different eras of the game’s live development. Some of those themes were definitely better than others, and it got me thinking about holding to a particular main theme that seems both more personal and better made than the rest. For example, Lord of the Rings Online has had three main themes: the original, the Riders of Rohan “LOTRO Legacy” theme, and now the newer Mordor “Coronation of Aragorn” theme. Each has merits, although there’s something to the original that jabs me right in my nostalgia bone when I hear it. Looking back at and listening through the different main themes from some of your mainstay MMOs, which did you like the best and why? Feel free to share links to them in the comments! Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask … [Read more...] about The Daily Grind: What’s your favorite version of your MMO’s theme music?

Developed by Perfect World (also known as Wanmei) and published by Tencent Games in China, Perfect World Mobile launched with much fanfare as it is the first time the 14 year-old IP has a title on mobile devices. At the time of typing this article, which is nearly 14 hours after the official launch started, Perfect World Mobile has a total of 31 servers on Android (27 of those are connected to IOS players). Is the game worth the hype? After all, the PC version of Perfect World was many gamers’ first actual MMORPG. Let’s find out! • Before we begin, do note that all opinions are solely MMO Culture’s, and players are free to feel differently. All opinions are based on 2 hours of initial gameplay. • The major negative I encountered was the game’s graphics. Yes, I do know that Perfect World Mobile is “faithful” to the original PC game, but the least I would expect is for the graphics to be updated to 2019. I can spot ugly patches of … [Read more...] about – Quick look at mobile version of classic PC MMORPG
Blue Potion Games' version of Echo of Soul has launched as a buy-to-play title on Steam and as an early access title. Through December 13th, players can purchase the game for $5.39 (regular price 8.99)...or you could probably just go and download the F2P "Phoenix" version from Aeria Games.

Although I'm fairly interested in trying out ARK: Survival Evolved on the Nintendo Switch in the Fall, I have to admit that ARK has always been a disappointment for me when I try to play. Something about the game is too complex, too involved, too daunting, too intensive on my PC, and too... just aggravating for me. Maybe that'll be different with this version of ARK... It's called PixARK, and it looks like a Minecraft version of ARK. Before everyone starting to cry foul and say how dare they make such an aggregious clone, I did a little Googling around and found that Snail Games technically owns Wildcard, the studio which makes ARK. That means this is technically (or more than technically) legit. You can play right now on Steam. I didn't even know this was a thing until today, and now I'm sorta wishing this was the version coming out on Nintendo Switch. Here's another official video about taming. I will totally get a server for us to play on if anyone in the community is … [Read more...] about My PC Might Be Able to Run This Version of ARK
