I appreciate games, of all kinds. Sure, I get down on the Wii sometimes, I don’t enjoy RPGs, and I don’t exactly gravitate towards Club Penguin, but I do appreciate that games like these exist and think it’s great that there are people out there loving them. One such non-ShawnS game that What They Play’s John Davison has been talking up on the podcast circuit lately is Ether Saga Online.
It’s an upcoming free-to-play MMO that promises enough substance for casual and core players, a Poke-style pet breeding/raising/trading system, micro transactions for customization, and a colorful art style based around the Chinese legend, Journey to the West. It’s in closed beta at the moment but WTP has 1,000 invites to send out and I thought I’d pass the link along. I’m not expecting to get hooked but I like the look of the game and I’ll try anything that’s free and doesn’t require a subscription.
