Here's what's new with Vindictus photo
Here's what's new with Vindictus
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Vindictus has been out since October so this may be old news to some of you but I played it for the first time earlier today. I typically don't like MMORPGs or most RPGs in general because the whole “let's take turns hitting each other!” is annoying to me. Nexon's Vindictus, however, isn't really like what I was expecting and is more about the action. To the point that it reminded me a lot of Gauntlet.

Developer devCat Studios showed off some of the latest content to the free-to-play game such as PvP, new dungeons, a new playable character and new transformation powers for the heroes. I ran through a small dungeon as the new character who's main weapon is a battering ram. Yeah, ridiculous. The oversized weapon was a perfect fit for the new guy as he's over seven feet tall and 500 pounds of muscle.

Character's come with standard and strong attacks and now the new transformation ability increases a player's strength for a duration of time. While in the powered up state, players sport new glowing armor and weapons making them look like some sort of demi-God.

On top of some of the best looking graphics for a free-to-play game I've seen yet, the Source Engine allows for real physics so specific parts of your armor can be knocked off or you can destroy buildings around you. You can even do more than just hacking and slashing such as picking an enemy up by the neck and then repeatedly punching them in the face.

I can go on, but like I said, Vindictus has been out for awhile now so you can give it a whirl for free and judge the game for yourself.

Destructoid Exclusive: Dungeon Fighter Online's Fighter
by Colette Bennett

What does it feel like to be a super hot chick who can deftly kick the asses of large groups of thugs all while looking great and managing not to rip the small amount of clothing you are wearing? Well, that's how the Fighter feels, one of the primary classes in Dungeon Fighter Online. Nexon was kind of enough to share an exclusive video with Destructoid of how she plays in the free MMO, and now you can check out the action.

If you want to try out this sidescrolling multiplayer fun, you can head over to the official site and download the client to check out the game for free. My username on there is DtoidColette, so if you want to play a few games feel free to send me a message anytime -- it's more fun when you play with more people!

Dungeon Fighter Online goes into Closed Beta photo
Dungeon Fighter Online goes into Closed Beta
by Colette Bennett

As the launch of the Closed Beta of Nexon America's newest free-to-play MMORPG, Dungeon Fighter Online, drew closer, I found myself still interested in the game but wondering if it would push all my MMO buttons. Meaning, the ones that make me quit after dumping countless hours of my life into an MMO and realizing that I'm technically not getting anywhere (unless you count getting somewhere as an eternity of grinding). But it boasted the 2D sidescrolling look that I'm so fond of! I still wanted to try it.

I got a closer look at Dungeon Fighter Online at this year's Comic-Con, and it got me thinking there's a reason thousands of overseas gamers have flocked to it time and time again. We'll be participating in the newly launched Closed Beta, so we'll be bringing you some impressions of the game very soon. Do you automatically disregard any MMO that's free to play, or has one ever captured your interest?
