Microcosms: Wide World of Gaming – A Mabinogi Review

Posted Tue, Jun 29, 2010 by Medawky

Nexon is no newcomer to the MMOG scene and this powerhouse of free-to-play gaming has quietly developed quite a following for several of its titles. One of the most interesting, Mabinogi, blends Celtic lore with a South Korean gaming pedigree and does it with a unique style. Join Ten Ton Hammer’s Jason “Medawky” Bolton this week as he delves into this wild world to see what makes it tick.

Few games that I have played are as much of a paradox as Mabinogi is, from the title, which sounds like it could be of the same Korean origin as the game, to overly simplified and stylized graphics that belie a complex yet easy-to-understand MMOG. As Nexon prepares to launch a spinoff of the Mabinogi universe in the form of its highly anticipated prequel: Vindictus, there is no better time to take an in-depth look at the original.
