10 Kinds of People You Meet in XBox Live

A couple of decades ago, video games were much more solitary pursuits than they are today. Home console units meant you played by yourself or with a few friends as you passed a controller around or joined forces for a two-player game. Even with the original incarnation of the Xbox, the only way to link a large group of players was with a LAN party in someone's dorm. But thanks to Xbox Live and other online services, you can play with people anywhere in the world. This does, though, have some downsides: some of these people are among the most obnoxious humans you could hope to meet, and their anonymity only makes them bolder. Consider this list a guide to the various players you'll meet online. Forewarned is forearmed.

Blade and Soul: No Grind, Different Storyline for Each Server

Aion's always complained by players about its repetitive quests and heavy grind. What about Blade & Soul? In the G-Star 2010 premiere Q&A with the game's Producer Bae Jae-Hyun and Lead Designer Hwang Sung-Jin, Korean media put forward this concern to the developers. Bae Jae Hyun promises that Blade & Soul isn't that kind of game that asks you to kill 10 monsters and then 15 another kind of monsters, instead, there will be lots of stories from the very beginning. Besides, he mentions that different servers and continents will enjoy different scenarios. Well, that's a nice idea.

In this respect, the development team expressed their sincere apologies for those waiting for the game eagerly and faithfully, and wished to show their thanks for players' permanent support through the promotional video and gameplay demonstration.

Cardmon Hero CBT Review

CardMon Hero is a 3D Fantasy MMORPG with TCG (trading card game) elements. Players command their primary character in battle but are aided by magical cards. CardMon Hero is still an action packed game, the card system just adds an original twist to traditional MMORPG combat.

Pet systems have been popular in MMOs, particularly free-to-play MMORPGs, for a long time. They let players fight alongside a faithful companion that they can control, and that will never ditch them in the middle of a battle or fight over loot. CardMon Hero – a game initially to be published by Uforia as Camon Hero, and now being published globally by Redbana/T3Fun as CardMon Hero – appeals to that sense of having constant companions with a unique summoning system, utilizing cards for both summoning a friend to join you in combat and in managing skills. This unique take on a classic MMORPG combat system has its quirks, making it stand out from similar MMOs like Soul Master.
