When one mentions MMOG to the average gamer visions of Orcs and Wizards undoubtedly fill our minds. While fantasy based games filled with questing and leveling is still the norm, there is an emerging trend of unique games attempting to break the mold. Land of Chaos Online is one such title, but can a blend of third-person shooter, RTS and traditional MMOG combine into a tasty gaming treat? Join Jason Medawky Bolton, who is fresh off an action packed tour of LOCO, this week in Microcosms to find out.
I love the diversity that has sprung up from developers and publishers being able to nurture and grow their games over time something that subscription based games havent been able to manage in the past 5 years. One of the most innovative, and flat out addicting, games I have loaded up recently is Land of Chaos Online; a genre melding mix of RTS, third person shooter and MMOG elements. I was recently treated to an in game tour with Product Manager Hendrik Loga and a team of his highly skilled cohorts who quickly introduced me to the respawn point.
