So jelly: Korea is getting a Power Rangers MMO

Friggin' Koreans and their cool-as-sh*t MMO scene. We get Free Realms and the endless parade of World of Warcraft updates, while they get the stuff I actually want, like Rockman Online -- this happens to be the only Mega Man ...

Rockman Online early impressions
by Tony Ponce

Community member perri had the opportunity to attend Korea's G-Star trade show this past weekend and made it a point to check out the demo for Rockman Online. He posted his impressions on his blog, and sad to say, they are a tad on the negative side.

Though the game is played from the same side perspective as the classics, he found the controls to be sluggish, the animations to be stiff, and the environments and music to be flat and lifeless. One fault that particularly stood out was that while you could dash, jump, and shoot all at the same time in the original X games, here you can only perform two of those abilities at once. This may cause problems for gamers hoping for a more traditional play experience.

As perri mused, these changes could probably attributed to the nature of MMO gameplay. It wasn't all bad, though, as he expressed interest in the new upgrade system, specifically certain specialty parts that boost a single attribute at a time.

You can read more about perri's impressions on his blog. As an extra bonus, you can also check out further demo details from The Mega Man Network as well as gaze upon redesigned Classic series characters Proto Man, Punk, Enker, Ballade, Cut Man, and Pharaoh Man in the gallery below.

The Korean MMOG Rockman Online is something that I personally have been trying to keep an eye on. Tonight, a ton of stuff has come out about the game. Earlier we posted the animate teaser and now we have gameplay footage!

The trailer is full of action-packed goodness. Plus, a ten minute hand cam video has appeared from the GStar Game Show showing actual gameplay while the Bubble Bobble theme occasionally plays in the background. You don't want to miss this great stuff!

Cool things you can't have: Ghosts 'n Goblins Online

Wait, there's a Ghosts 'n Goblins MMO? Yes, there is -- but it's being developed by Seed9 for Korea. Much like Mega Man Universe (which we will be getting, thank goodness), Ghosts 'n Goblins Online retains its side-scrolling...
