Realm Of The Mad God: Still Exists, Still Mad

Kieron sends word that Mythic's Paul Barnett sends word that Realm of the Mad God is one of his games of the year. Well!

Jim posted about RotMG back in January, and following a quick investigation I can report that it's still the rockin' free-to-play massively multiplayer fantasy RPG shooter that it always was. Yes. How that works is that you send your character skittering through the world, blasting monsters, collecting loot and attempting the odd quest, and you're free to chat with/join with/ignore any other players you encounter. It's an absurdly lightweight experience that a stiff breeze could catapult into space, yet it's plenty compelling and the shooting is crisp. Go play! If you need me (you won't need me) I'll be the frantic priest in an area several levels too dangerous for him.
