293w ago - Today I got my latest issue of PCGamer where they played over 60 different free MMOs and selected 9 as worth playing. I figured you guys could get some good use out of this list so here it is.
Sort of like GTA except with more crime and less driving around. It uses the Unreal Engine 3 and isn't set to be released until Spring of 2009, so its about a year away but it'll be free to play.
No suprise to see Mythos making the list. We've covered Mythos before, but if your not familiar with it it's a Diablo2 clone, but a MMORPG instead of a regular RPG.
An extremely gory and bloody horror MMORPG that lives up to its name. Originally created in South Korea the game has made its way to western audiences. Currently the game is in Beta, but will be released shortly.
A comical MMORPG that is a lot of fun to play and is free as long as you allow them to run an ad banner while your playing. However for only $4.99/month you have the option to remove that.
Sword of the New World: Granado Espada
An MMORPG with an anime look that at one point had a monthly fee but...
293w ago - A reader on a tech site is reporting that Sony are failing to deliver the free PS3's they were offering as a sweetener with Bravia TVs.
The customer says its been nearly 5 months and they have still not received the PS3 and Sony are offering no solution to the problem.
It is unclear if this is an isolated incident or more widespread.
To quote: Dear Blorge,
I would like to bring to your attention a matter that has happened to my grandfather of all people regarding Sonys Bravia tv offer. With every 1080p television sold they would give a free Playstation 3 away.
My grandad was already looking at a Sony 40" Bravia tv. The X series. by the way the TV is brilliant. The problem was with the playstation. He ordered the TV half way through December, and it took, after a month of delays might i add, a month to get here. We were told by sony we would have to wait for the TV to get here before we could order the playstation and it would then take 28 days.
With much help by our local Retravision my grandad has been persistent on the issue ringing Sony asking how long it would take to get here. It is now the end of april and it still has not arrived. We have contacted Sony several times asking the question but with no definite answer or real apology. I am very angry...
