A Beginner's Look at Darkfall - How to Get Ganked
Every week, Ten Ton Hammer's Cody Bye takes some time to write out his
latest thoughts on competitive MMO gaming. When he decided to take a
spin with Darkfall,
however, Cody got more competition than he bargained for. In this
commentary, this Ten Ton Hammer staffer explores the differences in Darkfall and where the
game initially falls short. Plus, you get to see a picture of him
getting ganked. Enjoy!
The first time I logged into the game, I felt like I was a new MMO player all over again. I was wet behind the ears, my skin color was green (alright red and furry), and my eyes hurt from squinting to see all of the unknown details in my UI. Little is explained up front, and even looking into the "Help" menu reveals only a few scant details about the game. To make matters worse, I hadn't explored any of the "Here's what to do in Darkfall" threads on the official forums. Much like the early days of EVE Online, if you aren't prepared or at least slightly invested in the world of Darkfall, you may be in for a hard beginning experience.
