Think i'm going to have to give Blade and Soul an A bomb, just feels to me that they are trying to hard to get you to pay up. almost everything to buy from the vendor costs way more than you earn, in fact it wouldn't be the first time i've logged out on a minus on credits earned and i have not even bought anything....shame cause it seems like a good game so far

So when are you going to talk about Adventure Quest 3D. It has had a successful kickstarter and been green lite on Steam.

The only game with mounted combat I've really played is Archeage. Each mount has its own hotbar with attacks specific to the mount. For example, the elk mount has a lot of bow style attacks. They also have limited aerial combat via the gliders. Both are fun, but limited in usefulness, I did use the elk's attacks on my archer from time to time, but overall I stick to ground combat, more or less because I simply have more options and utility.

Da bomb to Project: Gorgon. I've been eyeballing this one for a while, finally decided to download the alpha (which is free to play at the moment). And I'm having a blast. I've been calling it my "New Everquest" because it has that old school charm and is all about exploring and little easter egg type things. I also enjoy the fact that it is classless, allowing you instead to choose two skill types (similar to The Secret World), so you have a good amount of customization options. I think this one has real potential and I appreciate all that went into making this game.

Hey Magicman, here is a video of Icarus Online aka Riders of Icarus (KR/NA name change) Developed by WeMade Entertainment. I'm excited about this one, been wishing for this title to drop over here since watching videos of it on Steparu.com channel. I hope Nexon can pull this one off. (https://youtu.be/U3AHhE55rxA)
