Let the gamer beware, Forsake this game!

Condolences, dear seekers, for Perfect World Entertainment's Forsaken World (formerly "Project EM"/PEM), MMORPG. This site was once filled with hope, but now serves as a warning to gamers with even the slightest glimmer of interest.

Forsaken World has been released in "Open Beta", and brings SHAME to PWE and it's parent Company, PWB (Perfect World Beijing). FW is a Flagship of Corporate Greed, and Poor Craftsmanship..

"Come, mourn with me! Practice well your Dirges, your Nocturnes, and your Vespers! Come grieve with me, Dark Children, and together we shall conduct a Grand Funeral, scored in blood!"

We shall hunt elsewhere for the promises left unfulfilled by this Forsaken World.

News bites

You know, seekers? I gotta start waking up earlier. It seems our friend Vahrna "got the jump" on me again, and there's already new posts up on "Journey through Forsaken World" about today's Official Chinese forums. Good job, Vahrna! (and curse you, International Time Zones!) ;) Sadly, it seems that Vahrna is a bit ill, so why not stop by , and leave some words of encouragement?
Also, Asfer is back from a blogging break, so be sure to update yourself at Forsaken World Fans. New look, and new posts. I am expecting great things from both blogs.

So, at the risk of "re-inventing the wheel", let's see what's on offer today:

Website updates coming March 8th

First news, and most timely, (for us), is the news that the Official Website will be getting a major update on March 8th (which, although "far away" is still closer than the March 25th Beta). The updated website, (already impressive), promises us a fresher, more detailed and up-to-date look at Forsaken World, (as well as offering contests, activities, and prizes for it's Chinese participants). For the rest of us, it *should* mean an international "teaser" website will be up "sooner", rather than later. However, if you're at all like Vahrna and myself, "soon" is never soon enough. ;)

Here's the screen shots form the post, (as also seen at Vahrna's blog)

Forsaken World is all about "Green Technology"

"Dawn County"

Twilight Castle. As distinctive as the Great Library.
(in this shot, it would seem the ideal Vamp starting point, huh?)

Deep Forest Fountain.

The other post is about the "story thus far", as in Grand Mundo's situation, as you enter the world. It's long, and confusing, and I really think I'll wait until the story gets 'localized', because there's far too much to "read into" it, and too many names that may be changed. Vahrna did a good job on the rough translate, and I'm content with that.

The third post, (mind you, in Official ) is not even about the game itself, rather the real world beauty of some of it's players...of the female variety. "Girls in gaming" has always been a subject of debate, (with some people foolishly convinced that 'girls don't play mmo's'.) Hogwash. I know plenty of "real girls" that play "real games", not just Barbie and Hello Kitty. And they're not all healers, either.It's my experience that people who claim "real girls don't play mmo's" are usually 15 year old boys who just got spanked in PvP by a female gamer. XD

But that, seekers, is an " exposé for another day."

*you* tell her she can't play. *I'm* not gonna do it. 

And in "non-FW" news, got a press release from Jason Varden of Perfect World Entertainment, encouraging readers to participate in the "Project Fashion" event for PWI. The contest seeks budding young designers to compose an outfit that, if successful, may be translated into an "in game" item, (and a chance to win 10,000 Zen!) How cool is that? (Now I wish I still had Photoshop!) .  
Show off your skills, even if you don't play PWI, because you could use that Zen (roughly $100 worth) , and apply it to Forsaken World, I'm betting.
