Beyond the MMORPG - Conan

Posted Dec 18, 2007 by Jon Wood

Beyond the MMORPG - Conan

In this Beyond the MMORPG column, Managing Editor Jon Wood takes a look at a small aspect of the recently released Conan game for the XBox 360 and expresses concerns about "franchise" or IP MMORPGs.

As you all can probably imagine, this last week has been a busy one for us over here at With the holidays coming up, family to visit, Reader’s Choice and Editorial Awards to plan, illness due to crazy weather and other wacky adventures have kept me away from my PC for the last week save for work, which means that I don’t have a new game to talk about in this week’s Beyond the MMORPG. Fortunately for me, I spent some time this past week watching my brother play the new Conan title for the Xbox 360. While I didn’t see a whole lot of play, like any good loud-mouth, I do have a few comments.

For those of you out there who are interested in this kind of thing, Nihilistic Software is the company behind the game, and THQ are responsible for the publishing.

So, I sit down on the couch to watch my brother play Conan. I’m doing other things, so my attention isn’t really focused on the action on the screen. I look up from time to time, and I see pretty much what I expect to see; impressive visuals. Frankly, the game looks great. It’s gritty, and gory and, if I wasn’t mistaking, even showed the occasional breast or two. Really, in that department, it’s everything you might expect from a Conan game.
