Ryzom Re-Review's Adam Tingle wrote this week's review of Ryzom, a game launched in 2004, and plagued by numerous issues that still has some kick left in it, even after six years. here is an excerpt:

The game's approach to the level system is perhaps both its greatest achievement and greatest flaw in that it really offers a truly pure non linear game but also leaves you inevitably and ironically directionless.

Bill's Five Favorite MMO Classes's Bill Murphy continued his series of "Bill's Favorite" list by jotting down five of his favorite MMORPG classes.

My friends know something about me. They know I love the undead. Not the Twilight sparkly kind, but the brain-eating rotten kind. Since I was a wee lad, I've had a passion for Romero films, and when City of Villains was released with the ability to be a super-villain commanding his own zombie army I was sold.I have a fondness for pet classes as it is, but having a zombie horde at my disposal is just icing on the delicious cake of necromancy. Maybe I'm a little more twisted than your normal geek, but I still giggle when I log into City Of for the first time in a while and watch my zombie pack projectile vomit onto my enemies.

This week's Game of the Week is one of the most frequently brought up games on our forums. Its launch propelled the name of an independent Virginia based development studio into the eye of the entire MMO industry.

If you haven't guessed by now, this week's Game of the Week is Dark age of Camelot, originally launched by Mythic Entertainment back in 2001. The game defined the now-trademarked Realm vs. Realm game design, and gave players a taste of what a game designed around faction based PvP could really be like.

Since the release of this game, Mythic as a studio has produced one and a half other titles. The first, a space-based alternate reality MMO called Imperator, was cancelled on the design room floor and the second, Warhammer Online, struggles to remain relevant among today's active MMO field.

Neither of those two titles managed to capture the practical and critical acclaim reached by the company's first title, but some still hold out hope that so long as EA keeps their Mythic branded studio alive that a Dark Age of Camelot 2 might be in the works, brining what is considered a classic game up to date with more recent titles.
