If you are a regular to the Destructoid chat, then you've probably heard me and a few others going bananas over a truly underappreciated free online multiplayer game by the name of ARC (Attack Retrieve Capture.)ARC has been around for almost 10 years now and still retains a very active community to this day. Sadly, it still remains a diamond in the rough among the plethora of free online games today. I honestly want to put a stop to that and (re)introduce the world to this gem of simple, addictive fun. In ARC, you pilot a small spaceship lovingly named a "Nipple" (stop giggling.) Your ship is outfitted with four distinctly different weapons; a standard laser, a fast-moving missle, a bouncy laser, and a grenade that causes massive damage! The basic objective of the game is to lay waste to the opposing team(s), grab their flag, and capture it back at your team's base. Easy, right? Wrong. Things quickly become more difficult the moment you realize that you've got the other team's flag and they're tossing deadly shrapnel-spraying grenades coming your way. To learn more about ARC and to learn how to get into the action with the Destructoid community, check out my forum post for a mini-guide on how to get started playing. Also, check out the Wikipedia entry about ARC and its history. Lastly, if you're looking for the leading community hangout for ARC, swing by ARC Headquarters.
