How does that line go “Hi my names Sirrob01 and I’m an MMORPG addict”, addict might be a bit of strong word maybe compulsive player might be a better phrase. Either way I’ve found myself sucked into the depths of online games for the past two months and wasted way to much time there hence the lack of projects. Which one you might ask well it’s an old game first released in korea way back in 1996 and then in the US in about 1998, I started playing late in 1999 it’s called Nexus the kingdom of the winds.
I wont go into some long rant about how it’s the greatest or worst game of all time, but after a decade of playing it and trying a lot of other MMORPG’s it managed to drag me back in something no other MMORPG has managed to do. It has very simple 2d graphics and a basic kill grind xp model except no level cap you just keep buying more stats…forever. However the amount and variety of content now available in the game is huge and I haven’t seen two people dressed the same in the 2 months I’ve been back, of course the player base has slipped back to around 300-400 players at peak so it has a very small community feel to the game.
Okay on the off chance someone wants to try it, it is free to play to level 50 but the game doesn’t really start to 99 and the new player area your trapped in until you either register or reach lvl 25 really bites, it’s a nice area but no-one ever vists the area so it’s a barren waste land…okay on with some pictures:
The game has a very loose basis in Korean mythology and due to the small user base big events etc can be few and far between but they normally manage something for xmas/easter/valantines/halloween + 2-3 other events through the course of the year. Anyways the upside to this post is I’ve started to cut right back on time spent on the game and have got right back into some paper miniatures. However if anyone wants to go and have a look around the game it can be a fun diversion for an afternoon or 10000 :).
