For years MMOG players have been pleading with developers for something
new and fresh in the genre. Sword and sorcery games wear thin on the
player base and the desire to branch out into new worlds on everyone's
lips. While many games have attempted to break us from the bonds of our
fantasy environs, few have ultimately succeeded. Luckily for us
however, the developers haven't given up and several new titles promise
to break the cycle of disappointment. One of the most unconventional of
these up and comers is All
Points Bulletin
, a persistent
world
cops vs robbers game with a twist, that is the brain child of Grand
Theft Auto creator David Jones. Join Medawky this week as he looks at
the differences and similarities between these two flavors of games and
the people that play them.

on the horizon are several new offerings that have a solid FPS
feel to them. While this is certainly nothing new in the market, it
does tend to signal more of a trend than did, say, Planetside or
Anarchy Online when they were released. Another trend being brought to
the forefront of massively multiplayer online role-playing games is a
departure from the tired and overused fantasy setting by way of a shift
to high tech and “real world” style games. Of this
new breed of MMOG,
none combines all the elements quite the way All Points Bulletin (or
APB you acronym fans) does. APB looks to be the epicenter of the
impending collision between GTA and MMO gamers and the results look to
be very interesting to say the least.
