The Past Points To The FutureApril 17, 2008
One of the reasons why we can have solid, grounded hope that WAR will not only work as an MMO, but be an excellent title is by looking at Mythic’s past: Dark Age of Camelot.
I’ll admit that I never played DAoC (other than two days of a trial somewhere), but the guys over at Virgin World’s Online Gamer Anthology recently gave the game two podcasts’ worth of reminiscing. They absolutely geek out over DAoC’s RvR content, which they claim as some of the most fun they’ve ever had in an online game, period. As a lot of our expectations about WAR rest on the next evolution of what DAoC brought to the world, I definitely think you should give these episodes a listen.
And as an added bonus, these guys do EXCELLENT, hilarious intros to each episode that have to be heard to be believed.
