I'm Mike, and I've been playing MMORPGs for well over ten years now.
I started playing MMORPGs back in the stone age of MMOs. I started with Meridian 59, and haven't stopped since then. My most memorable titles would have to be Ultima Online and Asheron's Call, with EverQuest coming in at a close second.
I'm also an IT expert. I've been working in IT for most of my life, and hold more than a few industry certifications.
With my mix of MMORPG experience, and IT expertise, I can offer a veteran gamer's insight coupled with an IT expert's analysis.
In this blog, I plan to provide my overall views of new MMOs, both in beta and retail (so long as there is no NDA on the beta), my likes and dislikes, and a view of the technical side of things, in regards to realistic system requirements, killer bugs and crippling server/client issues, if any are present.
First up will be my views and opinions on the Mortal Online Open Beta. Check back soon for my full write-up!
