@shanert

FE already gets ridiculous amounts of coverage on massively.

There have been, what, 3 or 4 articles now just on the 1.8 patch?

@(Unverified) Hell Coverage from the Developer would be nice.

Now it's f2p I think Beau should spend a week on Neocron and report back!

EQ (the original) probably deserves better coverage than it gets.

On the whole tho' I think you guys do a fantastic job spreading yourselves around a vastly over-crowded market. The set-piece articles on Fallen Earth and Age of Conan are probably the best over and above the brief news updates so I'd tend to argue in favour of extending that level of coverage to additional specific MMO's rather than the more bland "what do you look for in an MMO?" type discussion topics which tend to come across more as page-fillers.

@Seffrid Yeh I have asked about Neocron and the developers have been getting back to me on it for a long tine. They have some kind of special account issues that shut down normal sign-up and play, so I have to be approved.....or something like that.

I think it's time I send them another email and bug 'em to let me in! :)

Where does it say that Neocron is F2P? I only see a 10 day trial and the last news item is from 2009!

Same question I'd like to ask as well. I'd like some confirmation that it is indeed F2P.

Vanguard. It gets name-checked a lot, but always in this sad voice, with lots of gentle head shaking and deep, sorrowful sighs. Beau is the only one who talks about it like it hasn't died already. :P

Entropia Universe, It is a weird game and hardly brings out any news but it does deserve a little more than that.

maby Runescape a little...

Rift, Tera, & Star Wars (IMO).

Specific games, nothing as such but i'd really like to see a weekly column devoted to smaller games from indie development teams. Games like Love, Vendetta online and Dawntide.

Okay for every ten failed wow clone with a 10 dollar development budget you might report on you'll find one innovative, imaginative gem of a game struggling on with no media coverage.

I'm not saying cover the little guy because he deserves a helping hand, but more that this genre of gaming is pretty stagnet right now and anything that shines a light on something fresh and new can only be a good thing.

Tera, though coverage is obviously light cause it isn't out yet.

This may sound like an odd request. How about a follow up story on WWII Online which is about to face its 10th anniversary in June. Not many MMO's, in this case MMOFPS get to say that

I have a feeling that there will be plenty of RIFT for at least the next few months (and if it grows at the current rate I can only hope that we see RiftInsider or whatever, but we'll know in 3-6 months if the game has staying power), and we're certain to see a ton of TOR stuff as we get closer to release. So no need to request these games, since they're going to get a lot of discussion by default.

So instead I generically request more coverage of any game that does things far differently than the norm. Darkfall, Xysom, Linkrealms, etc. While these types of games are niche titles, it seems that any game that is a clone of you-know-what is going to get a lot of coverage by default.
