While at the oasis, Millia enlists the help of the Ruairi in her plans for revenge. Meanwhile, the player escapes from the Giants and Elves, only to return to try and help save the king of the giants from Cessair assassination. How will it all play out this week? See for yourself in the video after the break. Then tune in to watch a playthrough Tuesday, August 13th, at 5:00 p.m. EDT on Massively TV.
Frank has such a sword. Frank is set for life. "Here's a shot from the ongoing Relics of the Gree event in Star Wars: The Old Republic," he sent in. I think Frank has it covered.
Maybe you don't have such a sword on you. It's OK; we've got plenty of awesome screenshots after the jump that you can take and use their sharp corners to slice through the opposition. Rock it!
Episode Six is called Swarm of Demons: Truth, and it may be the darkest hour for our heroes yet. Even without mouths, these characters call to our very souls as they struggle against a dude in a red beard that likes to pop out of smoke portals. Check out the action after the jump!
This week's episode offers some twists and turns, where alliances break down and danger rears up from new directions. Watch how it all plays out in the video after the break. Then join in as it is played live Tuesday, July 30th, @ 5:00 p.m. EDT on Massively TV. You can also get a a recap of all the action in the first three episodes in Rise and Shiny.
But, what is the Saga Iria? Well, it's complicated. I have to admit that I do not have all the answers, and I hope to remain in the dark for a while. Stories are more fun when you don't know the ending. Still, I'm going to recap what I know so far, and share my live videos with you in case you missed them before! Also, be sure to tune in to our exclusive trailer releases! We will show you the next chapter trailer before anyone else!
Spoiler alert: There are videos and short walkthroughs past the cut, so if you do not want to know what happens or have not played through some of these older chapters, don't read on. Please note that my hour-long livestreams are usually not long enough to fit in an entire chapter, as well, so you might miss some of the action on the tail-end.
But wait -- only this missing Akule has the strength to train Millia? Not to worry, the crazed ex-shaman Lelach has a plan. But even as Shamala, Millia, and the player gain the help of the Elves and Giants to complete Akula's charm, dark forces gather together to thwart the ritual and plot to destroy the shamans.
Watch the events of episode four unfold after the break. Then be sure to catch a special playthrough of this chapter Tuesday, July 23rd at 5:00 p.m. EDT on Massively TV. And watch for a Rise and Shiny recap of the adventures.
Join us today for the third episode in the series, where nightmares and chase scenes will hold sway over all. Drink up on all of the lore that this video has to offer and then get into the game itself to experience the wild world of Mabinogi (Legal disclaimer: May or may not cause waking nightmares. If your scream persists for more than four hours, please consult a physician.)
We've got episode 3 after the break.
Considering episode two is called "Hero's Return: The Trap," we don't have high hopes that things are about to get much better. But we don't want to spoil anything for you. If you're a Mabinogi player, remember that you can follow along with the Iria Saga in-game as well. But if you're just here for the story, then click on past the cut to see episode two in full.
Things certainly don't start in a positive light, with the player stand-in winding up as the force behind a demonic attack on a small village. But things just go from bad to worse from there; a flurry of events surrounds a powerful young woman, and an old feud between a shaman and a dragon rears its head. Take a look at the full video just past the break if you're a regular Mabinogi player, as you'll probably want to see this.

What's the full story behind it all? Perhaps players will find out in the new series of quests that will accompany the story when the new episodes begin next week. Until then, check out the teaser trailer after the break.

During this week's revisit, I knew I had to accomplish several things. First, I needed to clean up my quest list. Mabinogi is wonderful in the way it offers a player tons and tons of content and storylines, but they can be visited in a non-linear fashion that leads to confusion. Second, I wanted to revel in the glory that was the newly free extended inventory. Third, I wanted to check out the new systems and tweaks that have come along since I last dived into the game.
Still, it doesn't matter how we feel about selling power because the industry is already moving in the direction of selling power, lots of power. EA recently announced that every title it produces from now on will feature microtransactions. While that doesn't guarantee the sale of powerful items, I can promise that it will include some. This train ain't stopping. Sure, the console community seems a bit late to the party when it comes to the power-selling controversy, but that's likely because of MMOs' always-on multiplayer mode.
Real-Life, Sci-Fi, Asheron's Call, Contests, Culture, PvP, Ryzom, The Matrix Online, Wurm Online, PvE, Opinion, Second Life, Vanguard, RuneScape, Free-to-Play, Browser, Mobile, Casual, Virtual Worlds, Mabinogi, Kids, Alganon, Free for All, Family, Miscellaneous, Enter at Your Own Rift, Sandbox
Picking the winners this year is just as hard as it was last year, maybe even harder. 2012 was an incredible year for MMOs, so I would rather have just put together an article that highlights every single favorite. In the end, it's more helpful to make myself pick out a winner. It's a rare thing for some of these games to even receive a nod on a major website, something I still can't figure out. Either way, it's best to think of all of the MMOs on this list as my favorites from 2012.
Anyway, let's get to the awards!
