Five reasons you should play Hellgate: London (And three reasons you're not)


1. The Subscriber content is really badass

If you take my advice and check this game out you may find yourself wondering if the subscriber content is worth the $10 a month. Let me just say, hell yes it is. I bought a life time subscription when I had the chance and while you can�t get that anymore I recommend doing the monthly thing because the extras in this game are awesome. The biggest subscriber only addition is the Stonehenge station. It is the biggest station in the game and the place where most people hang out to form parties and such. It is also the only zone which features farmable bosses, a feature lacking in the beginning months of the game. Stonehenge won�t be the last of the subscriber only zones either. There�s already another one in the works for patch 2.0. Other things in the pipeline include new character classes, which I personally cannot wait for. Like I already mentioned, Hellgate has really unique character classes and the prospect of more has this gamer drooling.

Hopefully this blog convinced you to give Hellgate a second look. It got a lot of negative press when it first came out and I�ve always wanted to contribute some positive press for the game, in whatever small way I can. RPG fans, you�ve been warned. Play this game or miss one of the most under-appreciated online RPGs of all time.

What's up Destructoid?
My name is Sean McLoughlin and I've been sent from the futurepast to march with my fellow robots to victory. For Niero!

My favorite games can be numerous (as I'm sure is true of most here at Dtoid), but my all time favorites are Final Fantasy VI, Diablo II, Bioshock, Braid, Demon's Souls and Metal Gear Solid. I never rent games and I rarely trade in or sell the games I buy so I have a pretty massive game collection. For the sake of space I'll just tell you to check out my Backloggery account which I have linked below.

I'm a video game designer and an RPI graduate with a degree in Games and Simulation Arts and Sciences. When I'm not working with my development group Darkroom Games or gaming you can probably find me reading a science fiction/fantasy novel. My favorite authors are George RR Martin, Terry Brooks, Garth Nix and Terry Goodkind. I'm also a big fan of movies, my all time favorite movie/director is Reservoir Dogs/Tarantino. I love Professional Wrestling, Y2J SAVE US! My favorite band is obviously The Grateful Dead although my musical tastes are quite varied. I listen to everything from Modest Mouse to Wu-Tang Clan.

Bored? Why not try one of the games I've made:
Floyd's Tomb
Season of Thorns
