Cryptic Studios has announced that they have reduced the price of the Star Trek Online massively multiplayer online role playing game by $10 and are offering an additional 60 days of free play time.
This is much better than the $49.99 and 30 days of free play time that early purchasers and beta testers had. The new $39.99 and 90 days of free play time has offended many of the current players…………..

My question? What ever happened to equal opportunity. Can’t a Castanic Female train hard at Berserker college, graduate at the top of her class, and get a job as a Berserker? No she has to be a Slayer instead. It hardly seems fair.

The Darkfall Online massively multiplayer online role playing game from Aventurine is really hurting. They have been pulling out all the stops trying to get more players paying their subscription fees.
Here is a list of some of the latest attempts:
1. New 7 Day Trial for $1. I am not sure why they thought they could not do a free trial but are instead offering a seven day trial for one dollar. There is also a referral fee commission paid to publishers in the hope of bringing in new players. You can sign up for the trial and download the game here
2. In an effort to try and protect new players from shameless gank attacks, a new patch ads a feature called New Player Protection. This feature offers protection against player attacks for the first few hours so they have a chance to learn how to control their character. During this time you can cause no damage except to monsters and no one can damage you. This protection is active in the starting areas only. Unfortunately it also prevents you from using mounts, runestones, teleporting, portals, creating a clan, joining a clan, etc.
