Game #6: Continent of the Ninth Seal
I'm invoking the "play for at least 8 hours" clause on this and the next post, as both are MMORPGs.Continent of the Ninth Seal
, or C9, is a free-to-play Asian MMORPG in the same vein as the incredibly popular Dungeon Fighter Online
, featuring instanced quests for one to four players, with real-time clientside combat models and serverside damage and loot calculation. However, while DFO is a sidescrolling beat-'em-up in the vein of classics like Guardian Heroes
, C9 draws its inspiration from games like Devil May Cry
, and is a 3D hack-and-slash-and-sometimes-shoot game. I've been playing as a Witchblade (no relation to the comic of the same name) and having a lot of fun killing everything with twin swords and magic, but man, as a non-paying player, this class has some of the worst outfits I've seen in any game in a long time (example
). Also, the combat grading system makes very little sense; it grades you on four categories, but you can seemingly only really influence a couple of them through play. I haven't looked into it much yet, but there seems to be very little in the way of English documentation for the game, making looking into anything
about it difficult.
