TurpsterVision: An MM-No?

Mark Turpin

Every Tuesday think "T" for Turpster and take the "a" in "day", capitalise it, remove the little bit in the middle, turn it upside down and you get a "V". Put the two together and you'll have TV for TurpsterVision -- the best Internet video podcast on Massively! (Never mind that business about it being the only video podcast on Massively...)

I've made my name here at Massively reviewing MMOs; it's what I do. This week brought to my attention that not all the games here at Massively are as massive as you might believe – no I haven't gone and reviewed a game where you play as a tiny ant fighting other tiny ants...on a grain of sand. Though I must admit that it sounds like a totally awesome idea! It would rock, so consider it copyrighted. Instead, using my patented Random Augmented Nuclear Dart Yaw machine, or the R.A.N.D.Y Machine for short, I have managed to select a game that I don't think quite belongs here.

So Exteel, does it deserve the place it holds on the bottom right of Massively? Should we have this Multiplayer game tarnish our MMO street cred? It is a stones throw away from being an MMO. Heck, if we could float around a space station while waiting for our next match then it probably would be. All that to one side, it's cracking good fun! One brief warning to the rest of the world: this game currently runs on US servers only from what I can see. That will mean that you might have a slightly higher ping than you'd might like. You have been warned.
