Summary: However, I sense that you#DY#d like more from this than a mere summary, so I#DY#m happy to oblige. Bear in mind that Mythos, by Flagship Studios, the guys who gave us Hellgate: London, is still in Beta, so any of what I report here can change at any time. Still, it looks great, it performs well, and it scratches that Diablo itch like nothing else. So I suppose you could say that this is a hit, rather than a myth. BWAHAHAHAHAHAAA! Oh, my pleasures are so few.

With the Hellgate: London release CB recently, the Flagship Studio didn`t stop their process on developing the awesome MMO Mythos! The below ia a First Impressions: Mythos by Akela Talamasca .Let's begin .

I can sum this MMO up in one sentence: If you liked Diablo, you'll like this.

However, I sense that you'd like more from this than a mere summary, so I'm happy to oblige. Bear in mind that Mythos, by Flagship Studios, the guys who gave us Hellgate: London, is still in Beta, so any of what I report here can change at any time. Still, it looks great, it performs well, and it scratches that Diablo itch like nothing else. So I suppose you could say that this is a hit, rather than a myth. BWAHAHAHAHAHAAA! Oh, my pleasures are so few.

Now, having said right up front that Mythos resembles Diablo, I'm going to refrain from pointing out every instance of similarity, as that would quickly become tiresome. Instead, I'll just talk about the features and leave it to you, the Astute Reader, to make the connections yourselves. Deal?

So, let's look at the character creation screen. Blizzard must be happy that they got it right the first time, because so many MMOs use their interface that whenever you create a new character nowadays, you immediately get that thrill of recognition. Sometimes that's good, as in when you feel comfortable enough to ease yourself right into things. Sometimes it's bad, as in when it makes you wish you were playing World of Warcraft instead.

But hey, Mythos has a leg up on WoW -- as you can see above, my character Cirocco isn't any lame old elf or Draenei. No, she's a satyr! She's just, y'know, got the ears of an elf. And the horns of a Draenei. Completely different. *cough*

I pick my profession, Gadgeteer, and drop in. I go through some basic killin' stuff before I make it to the first town, just enough to recognize the familiar: click on a point to travel there, hold mouse button down to keep walking. Click on critter to attack it, click on dropped items to loot. Rinse and repeat, but I have to say, blasting monsters with a double-barreled shotgun is so satisfying I stop saying the D-word to myself for the rest of playtime.

Here I am at the gate of the first town, and there's the ubiquitous exclamation point, sigh. If pressed, I could think of a few things to replace that, but by this point, it's standard in every MMO, so I'd better stop whingeing about it. Clicking on another character, however, brings up the interface you see above. That's for other players; you get different choices for NPCs. Incidentally, I'm not sure why there's a perfectly serviceable cart marooned here at the gate, but the roasted wallabies it contained were delicious

a great article. your and my experience does not have much differences and i also like enjoying the game's sorroundings and doing quest with a group of people but having too much botters and cheaters really destroys my gaming experience.

Aion, as Beautiful as Before, Is Different to Me Now



Personally, I found Final fantasy XI to be a big let down. The pace of the game is so tedious. Being a big fan of the whole series on consoles- i expected quite a lot. However, Perhaps FFXIV may be different. F2P sounds good however a lot of riff raff usual entail with such things.

FF XIV Follow-up Report: F2P is not an Impossible Dream



Sad....Is she that godly at CS?? I doubth it. Quiting school bad move. "models for a friend" = Doing Xrated things and degrating your self. Notice it's not a professional company. I mean honestly, if you can't even finish the basics which is (1st-12th grade) and graduate.... How much or a moron can you be??.... Her looks will fade, her hands will develop artritis and she will either get pregnant or catch an STD and end up working a dead end shitty job living with her parents. But this is after the whole CS thing blows up in her face.
