Aion: 3.0 Review
Aion 3.0 was officially released not that long ago and brought some significant changes to the game. We've been checking out what's new in our latest review. See what we think and then leave us your thoughts in the comments.

When Aion hit South Korea in late 2008, it was using an old engine. The CryENGINE was four years old to be precise, coming from that surprise-hit FarCry. It was a pretty piece of software if you recall - a palette of bright colours, nice effects, and lovely draw-distance, and it served NCSoft's game well, up until a point.

Game of the Week
Allods Online is a free-to-play MMORPG set on the fantasy world of Sarnaut, which was once a peaceful and thriving planet, until the Great Cataclysm sturck. Now, Sarnaut is a shattered world, with pieces called 'allods' (islands) floating about in the Astral. War after war has been fought for territory and resources since then, depleting a vast majority of the planet's formerly abundant population. Now, the remaining races have polarized into two factions, The League, and The Empire, and continue to fight for possession of valuable land and open Astral space.

Players enter the devastated world of Sarnaut through a choice of six races and eight classes, to help a chosen side in their fight to hold together a broken world. Explore relatively stable, and highly unstable, allods, seek out and fight Astral demons on familiar and remote allods, engage in ship-to-ship combat in the Astral, and even participate in Sarnaut's official pastime, Goblinball.
