Ah, man. This game actually means a lot to Dotunuki. I actually travelled to this place and fought these demons, died and fought as a spirit, fought as a living being. It is quite sad to see it all come to an end. But alas there is a sequel. Here is a letter from Atlus to the faithful. Read it with a dry hanky.
The illusion of artificial worlds
From the time when the British mathematician Charles Babbage in the first half of the nineteenth century created the first prototypes of the modern analytic computing machines and Countess Ada Lovelace wrote the first program for them on an electronic language, later called “Hell”, passed many decades. But even now, in the first decade of the nineteenth century, when it continues to spread worldwide Internet, no one admits how strong a person can enter into the depths of non-existent in the physical world, spaces and events.
Today when we talk at all about the Internet, we can assume that in its pure form it is primarily a “warehouse” for storing and transmitting information to which everyone has access yuzer (user). So far so good, but with a little note – it is still difficult to be called the virtual world as the Internet does not seek to carry in their womb still nebezdanna our existence.
Unlike this situation, some individual special forces are trying to do this and mostly it refers to MMORPG.
MMORPG (massive multiplayer online role-playing game) is called. multiuser online role playing game, ie type of online game in which you can participate millions of people. She has modeled three-dimensional virtual space in which it is possible the realization of free movement in all planes, in fact it is a complete virtual world, which operate the principles of competition between participants in solving logic problems, participation in combat operations or economic transactions, etc., while outside because their diversity and unlimited opportunities for certain people can serve as an alternative to reality. MMORPG can be free or paid, but in any case there exists a turnover of real cash, often acquiring fantastic proportions.The largest representatives of mnogopolzvanite games remain Anarchy Online, Everquest II, Guild Wars, Lineage II, Project Entropia, Ragnarok Online, Ultima Online, World of Warcraft and others. In the social network Facebook also appeared similar virtual worlds – in games Farmville and Mafia Wars. For the first say that even two adults died grown vegetables virtual virtual farm …
While these games are not yet a true virtual world in which so to speak Participant “sinks” they actively engage people, especially those 40 years of age. Here in this non-existent real world become real battles and turn large amounts of money. It should be noted that cyberspace does not necessarily take the form of the game. It may be a virtual world, having typical dimensions of our lives dimensional. ”Golden” age of these worlds began soon after the onset of the project world Second Life, which lacks the typical MMORPG storyline.
The success of a virtual space lies in the fact that it establishes an analogue of everyday life, with all its concomitant details. There are three-dimensional real shops, casinos, entertainment complexes, and players can build their home or to open their own business. All this would be just a game, if it does not “scrolling” real money and not really doing big business. Global companies in the virtual world open their offices and even shops where you can purchase goods. But these are not typical internet-shops and truly three-dimensional space, and everything else that lies in them, imitate reality.
From now until October 17, the world tendency will be PURE WHITE in Boleteria. This opens up places that are unreachable in in PURE BLACK. After the 17th the tendency will change to PURE BLACK. This is all pretty awesome considering Atlus had only initially promised game support until 2011. Looks like we could push into 2012. I’m on the cusp of finishing. I want to finish before Dark Souls drops. I’d also like to play thru more than once. I may step thru into the Netherworld later today.
