    This MMO has an open beta this weekend, so I gave it a try. It's ok for a free download. I don't know that I'd spend money every month to play it though. It has some wonderfully confusing computer generated translations from Korean to English in the dialog, though.

    I understand some of these MMOs are hugely popular in Asia. I'm guessing they want to break into the US market, so we have a Korean game about English people settling America, basically. Yet, they still cannot afford to hire an actual English translator? It ends up with things like "Gang to bomb the supporters of the preparation of the construction to the statue." That's paraphrasing, and makes more sense than what was actually in the game. [​IMG] And that's one the first good quests you get in the game.
