    I would like to ask!

    Has MMOBomb / Freemmogamer .. Ever won any awards or been in PC magazine’s?
    If so what one’s and years, I would love to go back and read the article’s.

    —————————————————————————————————-

    Unrelated, But maybe you can awnser !

    While doing a search i see that Freemmogamer is still up and running, Why is this?

    And

    There is another site that is called Gia**bomb – Who was first and why are the logo’s of the bomb so simular?
    Copyright can’t be used here.. or is this just a big can of worms that don’t need to be open?

    Your Friend/Fan

      Yes there is another site with “Bomb” in the title (and probably even more sites, “bomb” is a usual word) but is only coincidence, the sites, the features and the content are very diferent. I don´t agree that the logos are similar… I don’t see any similarity.

      The FreeMMOGamer is still up because some members asked to keep the site online, but the site is not updated.

    Also, message received. Your a “humble” video maker and we are shown this with a corner city park video and cheap microphone discussions. We believe you don’t sell out (much or at least knowingly), but there is a way to keep it classy, pro, and have fun all with shnazzy gear. Hell check out akamikeb videos on youtube. He has a high tech little studio he makes his videos and even tells you in two vids how to make cash playing video games…. and he all he does is play silly xbobx games, and some mmorpg, and has a GREAT Planetside2 series (drunk run throughs)…and we get the sense he is pretty humble dude with a good group of followers and friends.
    It is funny to see the spectrums between extreme rich gamers showing off their gear, tech and graphical acheivements and “play this game if your leet” reviews, and then the middle ground, and then the guy in a park taking questions LOL! Good stuff! I do give kudos for the book introductions, other aspects of mmorpg really build a community and help get past the corporate crap.

    Good Job Magicman !
    But,You should know me well enough by now,That i will not make this to easy on you. :D

    You call yourself a gamer, Like i do myself, And everyone that watch’s your video’s also thinks that they are.

    So i want to test you on this ! hahaha Scared yet ?

    The first multiplayer pc to pc game Was Maze War – 1974

    My question to you is :

    In each Decade since , 80′s , 90′s, 2000′s and our future
    What Game’s or Feature’s were added during these decade’s to Help PC’s battle for supremacy
    in the gaming world?

    Enjoy your homework Damina ! While Magicman and i play GW2 . lmfao

    Peace

    site that should be nameless?…wut?

    USually there is the argument First look and Review. Some people are confused between the two. I noticed thought most of the videos on this site you have: “Commentary gameplay” – “First look” – “Icast”. First look is very neutral, giving the basics on the controls and layout, and then a general comment on the game that includes a light reference to another title etc.

    Commentary gameplay is a sort of nod to the viewers you (staff and hosted guests) particularly like this game for whatever reason, still not clear, and play it and show us, which usually includes allot of Spunk screaming in a high pitch voice as of lately. Not allot of commentary.

    Then I cast where more meat and potatos is dished out but still not allot of connection to the community as much as “you played it, why or why not like it” and we get a sort of “It is wow clone” kind of response and no one touching on the GLARING issues that are simply found in the actual game community itself or ON THE FORUMS. So we are left with videos and commentaries a little off mark and THAT is how we are supposed to decide to DL a game… Notice most comments in youtube still leave that question: “So is this game worth DL? so is it free? so ..[insert common questions]”

    SInce that is the make up of the site, I only snap over to cross refernce videos. Nothing more.

    The cross referncing is myb est advice for people. Go to PRIVATE (public, but one dude doing a review) Blogs, several, and check out the comments, they usually dont hold back and can be found in game a little more and active on games forums. Cross reference that with a few mainstream sites (The only 3!! that show up on google searches) like mmohut/Onrpg; mmostie, mmorpg. Then, and only then can you start to get a sort of fleshed out feel for games. One thing almost all of them fail to do though is check out both sides of the offerings, that is, no one offers an EU comparrison where EU games are held, and that is nice to do since more and more games are crossing these boundries. Aion is a good example; once IP blocked now EU and US version play like 2 different games as far as features. Ok; screw EU, another thing they fail to do is challenge the system and call out GMs to explain their views on things.
    YOu can always get a representative or a gM for ass kissing, but not one will touch the obvious issues that are in game or in forums. This leaves 90% of the community that has evolved into “ninnys” that say; “Oh well, at least we have a game.” – “Yeah it is bugged, but we dont pay for it so what do you expect, it is F2P” – “Yeah it sucks, but all games are like this” – “yeah it sucks and in games like ARiea games where you get banned if you advance as a F2P without paying cash you cna get banned for ‘collecting to many items’, but I wont talk about it because it is free” – WHAT? does this argument run in any other aspect of your life? “Yeah I am getting raped, but at least it is sex’”, I understand that at the DMV maybe….but this is entertainment!

    LAstly, the Gamelists that have ratings by vote. Cross reference those and it is amazing how each site differs. Sometimes it is a regional thing, but 100% of the time is is bad archived data. No one has reset their voting gamelist since 1995. They are so skewed. A simple archive “2005 vote list” and 2012 being the current one being voted on, would be a GREAT feature on mmorpg sites…no one does it. Everyone follows this mold of what MMORPG sites of “first general looks” and “Gamelist that reflects nothing (RoM still being mmorpg top game)”

    There is a cool review of a great opinionated reviewer here:
    http://www.youtube.com/user/chaosd1/videos?view=0

    End of every review he Lists: Reasons to play – Not play – and Cash shop. HE is probably the more vriticall analysed reviewers. But sometimes his choice of games just are not enough and he is a bit slow in updating his reviews.

    In the end, a good cross reference has lead me to 4 titles I will playing well over GW2 this year, and have been in them 2 years strong. I am loving my current games and glad I did the research, otherwise id be installing and uninstalling a million anime clones if I follwed these sites; and frustrated to hell. LOL!

    I’m looking forward to reading “The Legend of Zelda and Philosophy”.

    So thanks again for the recommendation.

    Nice games .. I am almost 1 year + with you guys .. and yeah this 1 my favorit f2p site … It was so nice see something about mmor : news,giveaways , shows and ect and this all for ppl who care about mmo, for users who love F2P mmo . I no longer need go to Google type there free to play mmob and search anything about it now i just can click on my Bookmaker and click Mmobomb.com and Voila the best f2p WebSite .

    You already done a lot for us and still doing .. I think you need still do some more Show or recreat some other shows for more Information about MMOf2p .. not only Games News but more Publisher or Developer news .. you know something like “Serious News”- with man who “wearing a tie” and speak about:

    1) Why developers (publishers) need now more Times for Alpha or CBT period
    2) Why so many f2p companies diying
    3) Any chance we will have some in-game chance gaine real money ( i mean Events and , ofcourse i mean Donation money for game)
    4) What about promotion , why so many f2p companies start alpha test with Begging about Donation to the game for CBT or OBT period
    5)Why Korean and Chines companied (devs) keep so long Publish games in EU/NA ( 2-3years ago it was much faster)
    6) What about restiction (region restriction) why so many companies doing it .
    and ect ect ect .

    I think time to do not only Funny thing time to start doing Really Serious Job and learn everything about f2p .

    P.s

    Geeez , sorry for my bad english …. shame for me .

    Good Luck MMOBOMB – you are The Best !

    • Magicman on September 18, 2012

      HEHE! That was something we considered but it all comes down to a very simple answer: equipment, geographic location, and plain old time. That being said…I am trying to convince Damina and Havek to at least make appearances at some point since they do live close! (Obviously Damina is in the same house :) )

          It’s funny how all of the serious comments/questions that I give on this site get ignored but the first troll comment i give gets a ton of attention. I really don’t see why you get so much attention, this site is full of misinformation, cheap jabs for attention, and hypocrisy.
