“Moonlight Online” or “God I hate Twilight”

April 18, 2010 3 comments

I won’t lie to you. I am not into Vampire movies or fiction, but I think that True Blood on HBO and An Interview With a Vampire were enjoyable examples of the moving pictures variety. I do hate Twilight however, and I loathe every individual that professes their unconditional love and adoration for all things Stephanie Mayer,  including my sister, that witch!

So when IGG announced Moonlight Online, I was a little skeptical about what I would find. More details have emerged in a recent press release however, that shed some light on what we can expect from the title.

Three Playable Factions

  • First, there are the enigmatic and dexterous Vampires, descended from the purest of bloodlines, withholding incredible power and astonishing agility beneath their ashen faces.
  • Then we have the Werewolf faction, the ancient nemesis of the Vampire empire, equipped with regenerative abilities, and unrivaled strength and sheer physical brute force on the field of battle.
  • Finally, there are the ever-resilient Humans, endowed with great cunning and courage, united under the legendary banner o King Cruz, killer of the Dark Dragon, under who’s guidance the three factions have entered an era of relative peace and acceptance.

The Fourth Faction Ascends

But as is the case with nearly every video game story, peace is only a fleeting vestige of the inevitable and destructive chaos that consumes the world, when a fourth, demonic race ascends from the bowels of the earth and wages war on the surface-dwelling factions.

Up until now this sounds quite fantastic actually, and I found myself inexorably drawn to the concept and the idea of playing one of three unique and distinct sides, fighting a seemingly hopeless battle against a fourth clan.

*sigh*

And then I saw the accompanying image, resulting in Vietnam-esque I had flashbacks of Twilight trailers, posters and fan rants.  Excuse me, I just have to go and clean the vomit from my mouth. You make up your own mind about the travesty!

“Weekly Crock Pot” or “APB, Moonlight, Torchlight, Red Dead Redemption, Ghost Recon, oh my!”

APB Screenshots

The more I find out about this game, the more excited I get about this title. The truth of the matter is that APB is one of three MMOs I am excited about in a market that recently seems over-saturated either with shameless clones (I am looking at you Alganon) or disappointing novelty (*cough* Champions Online *cough*). The other two being The Secret World and Star Wars: The Old Republic. Click on the gallery below to check out the latest screenshots, courtesy Destructoid.


Vampire MMO

Via Massively, IGG has announced Moonlight Online, a vampire MMO. I suppose it was only a matter of time before the recent American obsession with vampires seeped into the MMO industry as well. I guess this one won’t have any day/night cycles! Oh well, at least it isn’t based in the Twilight universe. Right IGG? RIGHT?

It is slated for a late 2010 release. Considering it is almost April and we haven’t heard anything about this before, that sounds like a bad omen. Has Cryptic taught you nothing?

Light Your Torches for $5

Torchlight is on sale on Steam for a mere $5. If you still need a reason to buy this brilliant game, you are about as satiable as a Saudi Prince on Friday. You know that diet you have been thinking about? Don’t have your second Big Mac for today and buy it instead. ‘Nuff said.

Read Dead Multiplayer

Weeks before the release of GTA IV, it was announced that the game will have sixteen freaking multiplayer modes. Say what you want haters, but GTA IV multiplayer was a blast!

History repeats itself with Rockstar announcing that Red Dead Redemption will also feature multiplayer in a ‘surprising’ manner. What’s the surprise? Will there be cake? THE CAKE IS A LIE!

More details coming April 5th!

Ghost Recon Features Male Human level 80 Rogues

Just watch the trailer. It’s part cool, and part absolutely fucking ridiculous.
