I've gotten back into this free online multiplayer game, Spiral Knights.
It's been roughly a year since I last played, and at first glance, I'd say a lot has changed. There's a missions system, which is pretty cool, as well as in-game player ranks which you unlock by earning prestige, which you get by completing missions. More customisables are also buyable, and I think they added a nice amount of HATS as well.
All of that faded away pretty quickly once I saw that's basically most of the new stuff. Heck, they even have a halloween event awfully similar to that of last year. But hey, 'tis all cool, 'cause it's a pretty great game!
Versatility of weapons and armor is pretty large, and then comes the added fun of the auction house, where you can auction your stuff. I also try to see fluctuations in the Crystal Energy market, so I can buy cheap and sell steep, but that hasn't made me much money yet.
Adventuring and combat are fun and easy to learn, though still very challenging on the deeper tiers. It's also always nice to join up with a couple of people who happen to be adventuring in the same place as you. Or you could just go solo!
Anyway, you all should check it out if you haven't already. If we can get enough people playing I might even set up a Blogosphere guild, hehe!
