    Minus the lack of translation and ping issues, this is truly a next-gen (or current, at the least) MMORPG. I especially like how they encourage character names to be Chinese and award bonuses for this - it really encourages immersion from players. It's not surprising Gumble didn't have much negative to say about how the game looked and felt (minus the lag and language). It had some run of the mill MMORPG stuff, but the narrative is great (if you understand it) and so are the NPCs and dialogues, etc.

    So sad that the western audience does not get to fully enjoy something as great as this.
