Soundtrack of the Week – Age of Conan

Soundtrack of the Week – Age of Conan

The man behind the masterpiece It’s already been six years since we washed ashore for the first time on a beach somewhere near Tortage and started fighting our way to fame and glory in the MMORPG version of Robert E. Howard‘s legendary low-fantasy Conan world. From the very first moments of our epic adventure between the four continents of the Hyborian Age, our ears are blessed with the beautiful sounds of the original score, written for the game (and its expansions) by the Norwegian composer, musician and producer, Knut Avenstroup Haugen. And despite the ups and downs that the Age of Conan franchise has experienced over the years, its music still [...]

Confessions of a Zombie Game (Man)Whore

Confessions of a Zombie Game (Man)Whore

Guild Wars 2: Shaking Things Up

Guild Wars 2: Shaking Things Up

Just recently, ArenaNet finally announced a release date for their long anticipated MMO Guild Wars 2, but is the game really the new Messiah people are hoping for? Or will it soon be replaced by the “next new thing” like so many other MMOs in recent years? If Wishes Were Horses . . . You have no idea how many times in my MMO “career” this proverb crossed my mind. Okay, many of my dreams about “my perfect MMORPG” are just that – unrealistic, subjective and outright impossible with today’s technology, but those that aren’t . . . suffice it [...]
