Here's a new one on me. Just came across an ad for it by accident. I guess it's Asia's big online fantasy thing.

I haven't played it, it was just weird to see this thing as apparently free. The company that makes it also publishes free-to-play online games...

Interesting. Looks as if China really is about to whomp Western Industry...

Nice found.
Looks very interesting.
This online game is complete free. The graphics are very good.
You will need a bit time to download the 2.3 gig.
Some more information about the game: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfect_World

Massivly is a great place to go for info about MMOs. It's become one of my favorite sites.

Here's a link to the site without a category included. Scroll on down, and on the left you'll see links to their posts on many, many MMOs.

I wonder if Uru could get some Chinese investment.

I'm to understand the Chinese actually have some money right now.

I practically live there. I have two characters myself, plus my husband just started and both of my older teenagers play too. I wanted to find a free endless world that was as beautiful to look at as Uru was. Perfect World fits the bill. It gets a little grueling fighting endless monsters, but there are other quests and jobs to do so it's not all fighting. So far I've had to deliver messages between city elders and solved a theft-crime and helped a woman waiting endlessly for her warrior boyfriend to learn that he had died in battle, etc. My main character is level 25 now so I'm running up on some pretty scary bosses at this point. There are huge battles between factions and such too. Thank goodness the player vs player is optional. I would have been killed too many times to count. There's strange unexpected things that happen too. I stepped out of the protection of one of the city gates yesterday and saw what looked like an amazing black dragon-like steed with flames coming off of it. As I gawked at it it came right for my character and killed her! It was a level 42 boss that had been chasing someone all the way from his lair to the gates and was killing everything out on the city's front lawn. Crazy...

Anyway, I went in expecting to be bored quickly and thought I would just wander around for a few days but I ended up really enjoying myself. It is astonishingly beautiful.

(Here's a screenshot I took a few days ago.
