You'd think that by now I would be running out of older MMOs and their kin to cover, but I just keep discovering more.

Harken back, o reader, to ye olden days of E3 2012, if thou canst recall, as a great and powerful force of dragons has arrived among us.

Ah, so we meet at last, Glitch. I have been looking forward to playing this game for a long, long time. Possibly decades.

It can be played in pretty much any browser, it can run on almost any machine, and it still offers pretty in-depth gameplay, especially considering its limitations.

Over the last week I was privileged enough to participate in Mythyn Interactive's Linkrealms beta, a game that I had watched for a while now. The trailer is just neat (to use a truly nerdy word) and strikes you immediately with its awesome animations and spell effects. In fact, the animations are v...
