Requiem For A Closed Beta

By Alec Meer on May 13th, 2008 at 10:05 pm.

Hmm

After toddling around in privileged-few status for a while, Korean horror MMO Requiem: Bloodymare has now thrown open its doors for an all-are-welcome open beta/stress test, which kicks off on the 15th. You can sign up right now, though – go put your name in the hat. No hurry, really – the game’ll still be free when launched, though apparently there’ll be some subscription stuff for those who crave yet more blood’n'metal bikinis.

I dare say I’ll stumble over and take a look myself at some point, though trailers’n'that haven’t been terribly inspiring (Lineage meets Clive Barker, from where I’m standing). For now though, more Conan, and my continued depression about perishing every time I fight more than two guys at once. Oh lord, why aren’t I a better gamer?

    Seen it before here but forgot about it:) Being Korean wont it be ultra-grindy?

    Koreans suck at making games.

    The last time i heard the phrase “bloodymare” was at a racing track in the provinces. the odds were appalling

  4. The Shed says:

    Certainly sounds colloquial.

    They don’t suck at it, they just are designing them for a radically different audience.

  5. PleasingFungus says:

    Yeah. Koreans just suck at making games for Westerners. (With the exception of things like, say, MapleQuest, which has a player or two on the other side of the Pacific.)

    Bikinis made of blood and metal? That’s just getting silly.

    I’m going to try this, if my PC has dried out by then (long story).

    Gunbound is pretty good as well. It’s Worms meets WoW. Of course these incredibly diabetic shock cute graphics, but game mechanics are tight.

    Aw, I thought you said “Wurm meets WoW” for a minute there, and I got all excited. Ah, Gunbound is from the same folks as Pangya. That explains everything.
