Due to their inherent virtual nature MMOs share little in common with
fine cuisine - at least at first glance. Peel back the intricate layers
of content, lore and evolving storylines though and you will quickly
discover a rich entertainment diet unlike any other. Some titles offer
a light sampling href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/67101" target="_blank">sure
to please the palette of a href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/67140" target="_blank">vast
array of gamers thanks to a more
casual approach, as is the case with href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/taxonomy/term/287"
target="_blank"> style="font-style: italic;">Free Realms
which recently entered open beta. Still others, such as href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/taxonomy/term/116"
target="_blank"> style="font-style: italic;">The Chronicles of
Spellborn
which href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/67151" target="_blank">officially
launched for North American
audiences this week, will whet the appetites of those gamers who
enjoy  a more focused, meaty MMO to chew on, but prefer the
“try before you buy” approach not unlike spending a
Saturday morning roaming around the local supermarket looking for free
samples.



All this talk of food inevitably leads us directly to the jam-packed
MMO content buffet that’s prepared lovingly each day by the
mighty chefs at the Ten Ton Kitchen of Doom! Each day we whip up a
fresh batch of exclusive content for our readers to chew on - no doubt
leaving them salivating for the next serving of interviews, editorials,
game guides and more! Premium members also get an extra helping of
exclusive MMO awesomesauce, so be sure to href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/membership" target="_blank">sign
up today!
