Two more to look out for (maybe)

Marvel Universe Online (could be fun!) Is back in development and coming out sometime.. soon-"tm". Partricualrly intersting was this interview with the guy writing the story, Brian Bendis. I'll sum up for you if you don't want to read it:

The game will be Free to Play, it will be aimed at adults, not kids, and it will be female friendly. (Hopefully I can get my wife to play, if it's good) It will allow you to play your favorite marvel characters.. I hope it lets you make your own also though. Yes I know, I'm counter-cultural. And Maybe they will section off all the wolverines into their own instances to keep them from meeting or something.. lol (I doubt it.)

Second, in open beta today is Wakfu, a turn based strategy MMO with Square helping but mainly pproduced by Ankama games I believe. something I am definitely going to try since I liked the concept behind Dofus but it was too shallow of strategy for me to really enjoy.

Lastly..I'm having a housewarming party in our new home tomorrow. Cooking lots of yummy Filipino food tonight. Have a good weekend!

Lots of "Free" dom in MMO's these days

There's been a lot of free MMO's launching these days. Some that might have slipped under the radar by accident, others perhaps justifiably unnoticed. I haven't tried them so I don't know.

But here are some intriguing looking new releases for those of you with the time to examine the fruits of other's labors:

1. Mythos just went live in Europe and is open to US residents as well. This is defintely a game Keen and Graev should check out, as well as other Diablo fans, like my brothers.

2. World of Tanks launched not too long ago and looks loaded with panzer blasting goodness. I really ought to try it. I loved black and white Sands of Fire on the old Macintoshes and this has to be better ... right?

3. Ether Saga Odyssey launched yesterday in our country (USA). It looks to be an MMO with pet capture, growth and ..release? (I just added that last one to see if you were paying attention) Basically a Pokemon type MMO. Could be very fun. Or not, depends on the grind level inherent in this decidedly cutesy Chibi style MMO. Here's a link to the site which has a trailer

4. Lastly, Dragon's Nest. An action (and by that I mean it probably doesn't have you clicking on icons and waiting for your character to do things like WoW/Lotro) MMO with super simple plot and super simple purpose, to be fun. Here's a screenshot of a guy witha  sword that looks like a bat fighting scary ladies with big claws, just for fun:
