We cover the viewer bombs, which all seem to be A-Bombs this week, and then get all excited over what games YOU are talking about from E3! There may even be some BlackLight: Retribution chat in there somewhere... come on board and don't forget YOUR Weekly Bombs!!

Da Bomb to MMOBomb.com for giving away AirMech Beta Key (steam version). After 7 years. this beta key has allowed me to add friends in Steam. Now you can never tell me that " you have no friends".

ait lads this question of the week is my kinda thing right here! :D i know its a game no 1 really talks about but i still luv it and i wish it would go free 2 play and increase the playerbase.... Warhammer Age of Reckoning ! this game would gain so much from going free 2 play! i mean it would increase teh playerbase by loads which will make the RVR amazingggggggggg which is why i played the game :P and it would be easy to make that game a NON pay 2 win you could make the painting of the armour and weapons real money (has no effect to the gameplay) and you could also make the public quests limited like you could only do 10 a day but if u pay for a pass you can play infinite for a month or something. sorry for the long post i really think this game deserved much more then wat it got stupid EA .... made to many realms and the playerbase just wasnt big enough and everyone went back to..... the game that must not be named!!@#$@$% *cough* WoW *cough* but yea thats the game i think would benefit alot and bring itself back to glory :P hope i get a response :P see wat u guys think
Cant give a Bomb to busy with work 2 play =[ another time :P

i'd like to give a Da Bomb to Aion. A generally well made game that is very fun if you have a few friends to play with. just like most MMOs, without friends to play with the game ends up being pretty boring. there there feels to be very little grinding involved in the main portion of the game (but there are side quests available for anyone who is trying to grind). the game makes you feel like you are actually part of a living, breathing world, as opposed to some of the less popular MMOs where everything feels very stagnant. their constant faction warfare in the abyss is also VERY good and their influence system makes it feel like you're actually accomplishing something when your faction wins a battle.

Another GREAT show guys, for my A BOMB i would send it to league of legends ;-; because every time i login i am put in a hour waiting queue, which is just insane!, i understand why they do it but when it happens for about a week it should be fixed by now. For the question of the week I think WoW would benefit the most that way there will be no more WoW clones. wait.. then it would get more popular and then people will join on the WoW bandwagon again... but atleast there will be no more MOBAs!

Hey Magickmann! Great Show yet again. Like you guys me and my Guild are really looking forward to Dragon Knights even though Aeria Games has disappointed us before, the game seems cool. Also really anticipating Age of Wulin. I also request that you get together all the main F2P Cast presenters together in 1 show for us asap because I am sure the F2P Cast community would agree with me that will be one awesome episode :)

~Sage a dedicated follower ;)

bad1one 11 years ago

I'm probably a little slow, but I've been looking through all the E3 videos recently and found out that European and American Warface is going to be much more balanced in terms of gear and cash shop than Chinese and Russian localizations. So here's Da-Bomb for western publisher of Warface for actually trying to deliver a fair and enjoyable gaming experience.

And A-Bomb for Russian publisher for not doing it. You know, now good half of Russian Warface players wants to play on European server. So your only hope is that we'll be IP blocked lol.

You are completely right about the first hour and a half in face of mankind (either u love it or hate it) and to be frank... i sorta hated it because i made a huge noob mistake and blew all my money on what can only be described as utter shit. If it weren't for the sweet mmobomb giveaway, i probably would have gotten fed up with the game and quit, but since i got some super high quality items in the giveaway, i felt like losing all my money was justified and i kept playing, now i can't stop.

Star wars the old republic: i hate star wars the old republic cause trolled me at the beta =/
Smite beta: yay some corrections and may become huge =P
divina: it looks cool

I have a question, why we all complain about moba´s when there are just something like 15
when there is like 200 mmorpg clones all de same =P
I have an answer but I'm interested in different opinions =)

Da-Bomb for Dead Frontier! I love killin' zombies and I absolutely love trying to survive. It seems that there isn't a lot of survival/horror MMO's on the market at the moment. I hope that changes. PS: Happy Half Birthday and I love the show! Keep 'em coming!! :)
