The Dark Side of MMO Gaming

It often happens that the games we enjoy the most are the same ones that we complain about the most. This seems to be particularly true when it comes to massively multiplayer online roleplaying games such as EverQuest, Star Wars Galaxies, and World of Warcraft. We've all heard people claim that they no longer really enjoy the game, but continue to play only because they already have so much time invested, and they are, allegedly, "addicted."

Having thousands of players in a world that is constantly evolving has created a number of problems that single-player games don't have. Given how popular MMORPGs are becoming, it's worth taking a closer look at these issues.

Blade & Soul to Launch OBT in Taiwan Next Summer

With the release date of Blade & Soul coming closer, Korea-based NCsoft reached Taiwan again to keep abreast of local customs. The company also took a Taiwanese medium's interview, and disclosed to the eagerly-waiting players Blade & Soul's current development status as well as its Taiwanese version's release schedule. As Blade & Soul's release dates in the areas excluding South Korea are still unannounced, the development director Pae Chae-Hyƶn this time declared that the game was to kick off OBT in summer next year (2012), which is undoubtedly good news for players. That is to say, Taiwanese players will be able to enjoy NCsoft's fourth blockbuster through its CBT early next year.

Online Gaming Law: When Will It Ever Happen?

Computer security has always had a law enforcement aspect, but the law consistently lags behind the technical cutting edge.

Terror in TERA

Many Korean TERA Players Quit Because of Overflowing Illegal Programs

Since TERA's OBT in January, the cheating programs have always been one of the major problems both players and media lash out at. Last February 10, the official company banned 3,331 accounts at a time, seeming to crack down on the cheating deeds. Nevertheless, the number of players who use the third-party software increased after 12 days.
