A Tale in the Desert Review

On Thursday, Adam Tingle wrote a review of a game that has gone through many tellings, but still retains its true sandbox nature, A Tale in the Desert.

Here is an excerpt:

Tale in the Desert is an exceptionally unique and innovative MMORPG set In Ancient Egypt which seeks to wash away all notions of Goblin genocide and experience grabbing game play in favor of crafting and community driven activities. Now in its fourth telling, the eGenesis developed game plumbs new depths for the genre and in doing so creates a truly fresh gaming experience.

On-Site: Whatever

MMORPG.com's Bill Murphy has been putting together lists. Last week, he revealed his list of seven expansions, both already in development and purely the fantasy of a gamer, that need to be produced ASAP.

Here is an excerpt:

We're never really happy as hobbyists. No sooner do we get one thing handed to us then we want the next. We are a culture of "We want it all and we want it now" if purely because we're so fond of the games we play that we never stop imagining the possibilities. I'm not damning this facet of our psyche, but rather fostering it.

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.
