First, the Ten Ton Pulse, your finger on the beating heart of the MMOG industry.

If the Top 10 isn't enough, we now show the Top 20 and Top 50 lists as well, available to everyone on our homepage. (What is Pulse?)

  1. Age of Conan - 200 BPM
  2. World of Warcraft - 93 BPM
  3. Warhammer Online - 36 BPM
  4. EverQuest 2 - 30 BPM
  5. Lord of the Rings Online - 30 BPM
  6. Lineage 2 - 30 BPM
  7. EVE Online - 25 BPM
  8. Guild Wars - 19 BPM
  9. Tabula Rasa - 18 BPM
  10. Vanguard - 15 BPM

Some things are inevitable, like any movie car chase taking place in Asia having a scene where the car hits a fruit cart or readers giving me the one-finger-salute when I write about one game too much. ( I like to think that they are telling me that I'm #1.) Such is the case with Age of Conan. I'm not so sure that it's my column that has them buzzing or the enormous Pulse numbers. Either way, I got an earful in that inner monologue voice that you hear when you read an e-mail that I was spending too much time on AoC.

Fair enough...

Let's talk about what is coming down the pipe in 2008 and beyond. What are my most anticipated games? You may be surprised.
