Weekly Web Roundup 10.21.09
It's time for another installment of our Weekly Web Roundup! This week we're happy to showcase more positive reviews, a sneak peek of what to expect from NCSOFT Halloween events across the board, and circulating news about Aion soaring to the top of the NPD (PC Sales) chart.
To get things started, MMORPG.com published an extremely positive review giving Aion an 8.7 out of a possible 10. "Aion is probably one of the most polished freshly-released MMOs I've ever seennot surprising, given that it actually was released a year ago in Korean and Chinabut it does mean that the game is stable, fairly well balanced, and it contains plenty of content. It may not do an awful lot new, but what it does, it does very well." You can read the entire review here.
Continuing with reviews, Canadian website GameFocus awarded Aion a 9.3 and an Editor's Choice Award, in a review suggesting that "Aion is very close to being a perfect example of the current idea of how a fantasy based MMO should be implemented. I would even suggest Aion might be the climax of the typical design elements of the genre." Quotes like this one give us plenty to smile about and fan the passionate Aion flames in our hearts. Check out the Full review.
Halloween is a fun time for everyone, but for NCSOFT it's an excuse to plan fantastic in-game events across all of our games. Kotaku took the time to put us in the pumpkin-carving spotlight in a piece about our Halloween plans. Turn out the lights, and give it a peek.
To conclude the roundup for this week, it's exciting to point out the recognition that we've received after Aion reached the top of the PC sales chart after only one month. You can learn more by reading coverage at GamePro, Gamasutra, USA Today, Ten Ton Hammer, and Kotaku just to name a few.
It's been an exciting first month, and the promise of many more is before us. As always, thanks for your support, and we hope you enjoyed the roundup!
