Writing a review about an MMORPG is about as useful as one weighing themself before and after they poop to see how much their poop weighs. The end result is a useless bit of information that nobody cares about and most people are just going to think you're crazy anyway. Also, In the case of MMORPG reviews, we can quickly assume that at some point in time the review will turn into some off topic rant about World of Warcraft.

See what I mean? We're not even out of the first paragraph and WoW has already taken over this review. This past year, we saw a handful of games come out that were alternatives to the Orc, Troll and Fairy orgies of today's MMO market. RF Online, Tabula Rasa and Pirates of the Burning Seas are some names that come up when we try to find fantasy MMORPG alternatives. Another thing that comes to mind when you mention those names is the fact that they are all MMORPG community failures. Sure, people play them, but they are the die hard, hard core pirate wanna be's, hard up Star Wars Galaxies Sci Fi Fans and Anime fans who want an MMORPG to call their own.

This week, a game called Requiem: Bloodymare seemingly popped out of nowhere like16 year old girl showing up at your door to say "You don't know me, but 16 years ago, you dated my mom...". We'rve been so accustomed to the false hype created by the likes of Sony, EA-Mythic and Funcom, blasting us each day with gameplay videos preceeded by over over zealous Englishmen who will tell you anything so you buy his game or the promise of a glorious MMO world where chicks (played by men) run around without shirts all day.

If you like this article, you can read the rest in its original location, Requiem: Bloodymare Review.

So true, normally, after playing a BETA, I quit the very next day... but Requiem has catched me somehow, I'm still playing it 2 days later and, dare I say, I'm enyoing it as much as WoW... and sometimes, even more...
