Bless Online was one of the most expensive MMORPGs ever developed, with Neowiz pouring over $60 million into the game before any localization, advertising, and maintenance costs were included. When a Western version was first announced, first by Aeria and later by Neowiz directly, many MMORPG players saw salvation.

Guilds got organized, streamers were ready, but it all quickly fell apart.

Don't want to do these heart quests? Skip them. Players are free to complete the quests they … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2 Game Review

Players can unlock New Game Plus runs of the game’s 40-hour campaign with additional story content, or challenge rivals around the world in ruthless one-on-one online multiplayer matches.
