Can I haz gothic horror MMO plz?After our previous posts
on Gravity Interactive
's upcoming title Requiem: Bloodymare
, we were interested enough to want to see more of the game, and lucky enough to be invited to do so at the Game Developer's Conference this year. Already playing in Korea, R:B
will enter closed beta in about a month's time.
Expecting a simplified hack 'n' slash with overdone Gothic elements, R:B
surprised us with some really cool features and a deep character growth system.
All Points Bulletin
Cops and Robbers and MMOs
What word is perhaps most synonymous with the current MMO playing field? Grind. Realtime Worlds' Dave Jones (no relation

we caught wind of back in September
. He's hoping the formula Crackdown
+ MMO = crack will be proven true with variables like infinite, professional-looking character and vehicle customization, contemporary setting, integration with last.fm
and dynamic, variable team-sized missions hidden in the equation.
