A few years ago, Perfect World Entertainment launched a mobile game based on its PC MMORPG, titled Forsaken World Mobile. The game bombed hard on the global market, with totally no fanfare or traction at all despite the PC version garnering some hype. Forward to 2019, and a new mobile version of Forsaken World, simply titled Forsaken World, launched in Taiwan last week. If you ask me, Forsaken World (2019) is an even better game than Perfect World Mobile, which in my opinion stinks. Here is a quick dive into Forsaken World! … [Read more...] about – PC MMORPG dives into the mobile world for a second time

There’s a strong community of players built up around the Water Horse. I’m always seeing people there at the mall, and there are a lot of public trails out there to ride on. This has really rekindled my desire to explore and learn even more about what Bento is doing in Second Life — I’m sure there must be more. … [Read more...] about Second Life: Finding Water Horse
#5: VanguardYes, this game had bugs. Yes, it didn’t get the love and attention it deserved (nor could SOE offer since the code was so cobbled together when they bought it they’d really need to just remake the whole game from scratch to be able to add content). Still, the game had those elements that made it a vast, varied world that I could live in, not just play through. It had some of the best classes ever created. It had a superb housing system, with an ability that was then taken and incorporated into SOE’s other games. Bless you Vanguard for giving us decorating on the Z axis! It also had a brotherhood system that would ensure that you’d never out-level your friends and make grouping and doing the content together impossible. That was definitely a treasure! Suddenly you weren’t tied down to only playing when your friends could. You could actually still enjoy the combat content of the game those times you couldn’t both/all be on; you didn’t … [Read more...] about Massively Overthinking: Our five favorite MMORPGs of all time
Though I’ve been away from Second Life for about 3-4 years, I still keep up with a number of blogs. So I knew about the whole SL Bento project going on while I was gone… I just didn’t know exactly what it meant. This turned out to be one of the most exciting parts of returning to SL. … [Read more...] about Second Life: Bento is Pure Magic!
But forget the Pirate Bay… Piracy is now mainstream. Not since the Holocaust have we seen so many people of a select group forcibly stripped of their livelihoods in a public euphoria of false morals. As one who is of Jewish descent, I can say that I make this statement in a very narrow fashion, but there are similarities. Creators are being vilified, laughed off and treated with indifference by scary multitudes of people who care not for artists’ lives or liberties–let alone the concerns involved in the making of art. The new “norm” is being heralded as “liberation” from the “contrived” and “unfair” standards of fees and payments that have traditionally been worked out in a fair market society. Instead, this is the new unfair market society. The “Jews” in this valid analogy are creators. We are losing our homes, our futures and our ability to take care of our children. Laugh. I dare you. And unlike the … [Read more...] about Crowdfunding Fraudsters: Jeremy Soule and The Northerners, a Five Year Ballad
