dragons. There will be zombies. And because game developers are 12-year-old kids at heart, there will be pirates. The question is, which of these three is the most overused? Which have worn out their welcome the most to you?
My vote is for dragons. Yes, they're huge, ferocious creatures that are often raid end bosses, but when every game has them as their ultimate threat, it dilutes one's proper respect of them. It's like every MMO has a Death Star. More of a big bad doesn't increase fear in the same ratio; it kind of has the opposite effect.
But maybe you disagree. Pirates, zombies, or dragons -- which make you roll your eyes the most? Which would you banish to the land of well-worn tropes?

D2 should prove to be a nice casual shooter with some fun customization/MMORPG elements involved to keep us playing together as a team. There are 4 man pvp battlegrounds getting good reviews atm, and the 6-man raids are supposed to be challenging and fun. Hope to see some familiar faces starting tomorrow. You can pre-join the clan by going to this URL:...

In this period we've gone from Bambi-legged...
BDO 8 month updateIt is hard to believe our BDO chapter has been active for over 8 months now! We started things off Feb. 28 of this year, and keep on trucking. A great combat system has kept a lot of us interested in the game, along with a deep crafting system and tons of different ways to advance a character.
