Post 101: This Week

This is post #101 for The MMOist. I guess I have written more than I thought! I will try to make the next 100 even better.

Today is my birthday. I am 49 years old. I have been playing MMORPGs since I was 27 years old. I’ve lived long enough for my online gaming self to be an adult. (And my online gaming self is not so far away from 30 if you count MUDs and multiplayer BBS door games.)

Wednesday is the day that pre-creation starts for the Guardian class in Black Desert Online in preparation for the release on the 22nd. I am already hyped for the new class, and this will turn the hype up to 11 for me. I know that’s the point of the event and I am a lemming for falling for it, but I was the same way with the release of the Lahn, the Archer, and the Shai. I can’t wait!


In between, I will likely be playing Villagers and Heroes. I think I tried it once a long time ago, but I don’t remember it being good. I decided to check it out since it shares an award with Project Gorgon for Massively OP’s 2019 Indie Game of the Year and it is surprisingly… well, good.

I also plan to show a variety of MMOs to my husband to see if he’s interested in any of them. I think I’ve almost got him reeled in. Now I just have to hook my mom, and my nefarious plot to spread MMO gaming will be complete.

  1. Just stopped by to say…
    > multiplayer BBS door games

    !! 😀

    The only one I remember with any clarity unprompted now is Legend of the Red Dragon, but I was often playing that on at least a couple of local BBS’ back in the day. The Auckland BBS scene was pretty alive and well for quite a while.

    Jumping from that to actual internet still blew my young mind. That it was a global thing instead of a singular local computer just… Phwooooosssh.

    1. You can still play LORD through a few different sites, either in a browser or on a bbs through telnet. Usurper, a similar game, is also still available. And Trade Wars 2002. (I ran a BBS or two in my day, as well as frequenting them. I kind of miss those days.)
