Continent of the Ninth: The Void has been filled

Roughly, it’s been six months since I last played an MMORPG. I stopped playing League of Legends then uninstalled it completely because that game brought out the sore loser in me (that, and I had too many penalties). Allods was – and still is – my favorite MMORPG but then it stopped working on my laptop. I tried installing it on my sister’s own but it still wouldn’t work.

When Allods stopped working, I tried out a few other MMOs but none of them suited my gameplay preferences. I tried Scarlet Blade by Aeria, and that was just awful (I doubt I even tried to level my character) and I tried Forsaken World, which wasn’t too bad but then the game got boring for me and I abandoned my character at level 7.

I saw the game reviews on Youtube for Age of Wushu and decided to give it a try but it wouldn’t install properly on my laptop so I decided to just drop searching for MMOs.

But then I found this!! I was watching a video from one of my favorite Youtubers and he was playing Continent of the Ninth Seal while he did a Q&A session. The gameplay is amazing and I downloaded it right after (and that was Wednesday).

I absolutely love it!! I didn’t think it was possible for me to find a game as satisfying as Allods but this is really great! I love the storyline (even though I’m not paying much attention to it) and the gameplay is just fluid. It’s an action-oriented game and the dungeons can be set to any level but for some quests, the dungeons have to be set on harder modes.

It’s an FPS-style MMO and combinations have to be used to do certain attacks. It’s just so sexy watching my character fight because it’s like watching Kitana, from Mortal Kombat.

CynadeaThat’s my character and she’s in the Witchblade class. When I was reading up on the classes and sub-archetypes, I realize that once you put a character in that sub-class then it’s locked to that and cannot be changed. And I’m fine with that…I think, I’ve already decided which sub-class I’m putting Cynadea (I really love this name) in, so I don’t mind that. The third boss I fought was brutal because I had to use four resurrection scrolls (I suck at handling my character, I admit but I do well enough). The other thing I really love about this, is the Slo-mo frame when you kill a boss. It is just BOSS!

Now I’m at level 10, and this game holds part of the blame why I haven’t really been keeping up with much anime recently – I got addicted really fast.

Too bad I have work to go to right now…

    When I read Allods, I still think about this old Allods II game. Have you seen it? Here is how it looked ^_^ – http://libgames.com/img/big/2012/07/allods1_4.jpg. I am not sure if it ever was popular.
