    Nice to see the Dragon Quest doing decent numbers, but nontheless iam curious if it is a good game and for that a good MMO, not that iam an MMO savy or player but i will be very interested in seeing the reviews, if it is good i will get it for the WiiU.

    I wonder the samething manu. But I doubt it will be a high quality MMO will be what it is. I don’t know tho, will have to read up on it.

    MMOs are sorta a PC thing. I thought DConline was decent for PS3, tho lite on content. I am hoping some nice MMO line themself up for the next gen. Prolly in a f2p model. I think there is a market there. But the problem is that platform holders want to monitize them to a point where they aren’t the same as PC(to pubs).

    #8 Poly, bad boy, Dont you know that two words combine are from now on forbidden, erase it from the vocabulary, apparently it causes more commotion to some gamers, that Justin Beaber and Lady Gaga in a concert together. :)
