Every self-respecting geek has dreamed of being a vampire at least once
in their lives. Immortality, incredible power, and drop-dead gorgeous
good looks are all temptations that might draw a person to live the
life of the undead. In Joymax's horror-based MMO href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/taxonomy/term/718"

,
you're given the opportunity to play as a vampire or a vampire slayer,
and the PvP possibilities are endless. The game has been on Cody
"Micajah" Bye's radar for a long, long time, and he finally took the
game for a spin. How did it fare? Read his Darkeden review
to find out more!


With
all that behind me, I finally got into the meat and bones of
Darkeden. Or at least, what should have been the meat and bones. At
character creation, you’re given the option of selecting
three
different races – Ouster, Slayer, and Vampire –
each of which has its
own particular playstyle and advancement system. While Vampires use a
level-based system to advance, Slayers progress by gradually building
up their skills through weapon usage. Ousters are like a combination of
the other two classes. From the outset, it’s made readily
apparent that
both the Ouster and the Vampire – at least in the beginning
– grossly
overpower the Slayer.
