19w ago - CyberStep, Inc Lead Programmer Aaron Hearn announced today that action-packed PS4 MMORPG Onigiri is coming to PlayStation 4.

To quote: Greetings, PlayStation fans! My name is Aaron Hearn, and I'm the Lead Programmer at CyberStep, Inc., a game developer and publisher based in Tokyo, Japan.

We're the ones that brought you the amazing online games GetAmped2 and CosmicBreak, games that feature outer-space tournaments and robot combat. But now, instead of epic sci-fi adventures, we'd like to welcome you to a completely different world, an alternate universe of mythological Japan filled with demon Youkai and humans coexisting with the blessings of the ancient gods.

Then there's you, a descendant of the long-isolated mythological tribe. Together with eight ally NPCs, each with their own personalities and unique abilities, you venture forth to restore peace to the troubled landscape, imperiled by the deadly miasma and the ancient evil, the resurrected Kamikui! Please welcome Onigiri to PlayStation 4!

Onigiri is an exciting and action-packed MMORPG where you can wield the weapon of your choice, free from the restrictions of player classes in order to slay demonic Youkai however you please. Use your unique skills and a wide variety of weapons, switching easily between them all as...
 

BBC Study Finds 40 Percent of MMORPG Gamers Are Bi-Females

305w ago - The BBC reports that a study has found an unusually high level of bisexuality among women who play online MMO's. The study looked at 2,400 members of the population who played Everquest II.

To quote: I think a lot of our stereotypes are based on the way computer games have been, rather than where they're going.

The pressure to conform to traditional gender roles might mean that some women are put off activities seen as "masculine", whereas women who reject traditional gender roles might be more likely to play MMOs such as EverQuest II.

Perhaps in support of this the survey revealed an unusually high level of bisexuality among the women who took part in the study - over five times higher than the general population.
 

Koei MMORPG Uncharted Waters Online Coming to Japan in 2009

50°
311w ago - Dynasty Warriors and Romance of the Three Kingdoms series developer Koei is bringing their popular MMORPG, Uncharted Waters Online, to the PlayStation 3 in Japan during 2009.

According to Siliconera, the game is based off the Uncharted Waters series of games, the first of which was released on the Super NES in 1992.

This MMO sends players into the ocean, but not as pirates. Taking cues from history, Uncharted Waters is set in the Age of Discovery when Europe explored the seas- picking one of six nationalities, and one of the three basic classes in order to engage in trading, exploration and sea battles.

No information regarding pricing or subscription fees have been released at this time. Sadly, Uncharted Waters Online and its expansion (Cruz del Sur) are currently available only in Asia, so it seems unlikely this PS3 version would make it into the Western market.
