EN World Review – Neverwinter Online by Cryptic Studios

neverwinter logoWell, things do not always go according to plan.  I would normally being wishing all my Gentle Readers a “happy humpday”, but it seems I have gone overlong in my review project for today!  It’s actually Thursday morning as I pen this blog, but I hope you’ll all forgive my tardiness – I wrote a truly gargantuan sized review!

(Yes… it’s really long.  But please don’t drop a TLDR on it, or I’ll conjure a horde of wolverines to nest in your bed!)

So instead I’ll wish you a happy Thursday instead, and welcome you to another weekly installment of my review column on EN World News!  I hope everyone has some great gaming planned for this weekend.  I myself am running my local game Friday night, then heading down to Toledo for my bi-weekly 4E game, so I have plenty of RPG madness to keep me busy!

As I mentioned, this week I wrote a massive review – as is only fitting as I’m writing it for a Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game!  Over the past month, I’ve left off on my adventures in Guild Wars 2, and been playing through the open beta of Neverwinter Online by Cryptic Studios.  To be clear, it’s called an “open beta”, but it’s really a “soft opening”, as Cryptic has made it clear that the characters in the open beta will be continuing on after the “official” launch date occurs. (Hint: It’s launched!  But we can’t call it a launch…)

So to read all the details about this new MMORPG drawn from D&D lore and the Forgotten Realms, please click the link to go over to EN World News and read the review in full:

Neverwinter Online: A Jewel of the North or Free-to-Play Drek?

MMORPGs are a hard thing to review – there is so much to cover and everyone has unique tastes in play style and features.  I can only offer my personal opinions on the game – so your own tastes might vary considerably from my own.  But hey, my opinions are free – just like the game itself – and you always get what you pay for, right?

So until next blog… I wish you Happy Gaming!
