MMO Trials

Funcom sends along an announcement: "The critically acclaimed and award-winning Shadowlands expansion pack is now available as a part of Funcom’s Free 7 Day Trial for Anarchy Online. Now players from all over the world can download the entire Anarchy Online universe and try it without any commitment for seven full days." The trial version can be downloaded from this page, and here's a bit on the content the expansion for their science fiction MMORPG, which has: "introduced 20 large playfields, 40 smaller playfield areas, and over 165 distinct dungeon zones tailored to players of all levels. An impressive range of new features, including new professions, faction system, hundreds of perks, better AI, hundreds of monsters and items, new music and a greatly updated graphics engine ensured a gigantic addition to what was already an award-winning game. Shadowlands doesn’t take any of the trademark gameplay away, but greatly expands a fantastic virtual world." Likewise, Palestar sends word of another promotion for DarkSpace, their MMO space game, where: "all new player accounts now receive a coupon for 5 free days after the account has been activated. No credit card is required, just a valid email address. This enables full access to all servers and the ability to gain rank and prestige."

well, it would help if someone could make a "do it yourself MMO" game kinda like how MU*'s were back in the day. where you just downloaded your own copy of MU* code and made your OWN game of it. Right now we can only play 3D MMO games when the big developers like Sony make them. so there are relatively few of them so they get crowded. Back in the day there were quite literally hundreds of different MUDs, MUSHs, MUSEs MUCKs MOOs etc. So it was just a matter of finding the one that had the theme and the playerbase that fit you.

granted you had to know C back then if you really wanted to take advantage of it. but people did it, there were tons of different Star Wars, Star Trek, Battletech, Shadowrun, D&D, White Wolf, you name it, universes to choose from.

Maybe thats just what i'm waiting for: a custom MMO engine so that any joe blow with some programming experience can make their own MMO game so we have more variety and different playerbases.

I'm tired of playing MMOs and fighting against 10 year olds. its a no win situation. Currently, MMOs are no different from the mouse repetitively hitting the bar for food...boorrrring.
