Bookahneer’s Geekwatch: MMO+

Guild Wars 2 Bookahneer's GeekwatchWelcome to Bookahneer’s Geekwatch! This is the place where we talk about miscellaneous things like little pieces of gaming news that have attracted our interest or what’s recently been in the spotlight of other fansites and projects.

Back in August, we received a mail from the developer behind the website MMO+ about his/her project. I am always a bit skeptical when it comes to people asking to have their projects promoted, because I don’t want to recommend something to you which then turns out to be a scam site trying to steal your game accounts or a website that ends up in the gold-selling business. So, I let those mails rest for a bit and check out the website before I make a decision what to do with it. In this case, I actually forgot about it. Blaugust had been really busy and then we’d gone on a short vacation.

Anyway, I just remembered it and looked at the website. It still looks as good as it did when I first visited it. In fact, it looks better. On top of that, several other sites have written about this project by now and the developer asked about feedback on Reddit. So now I can say that it really is a legit project and with that, a really great one, too!

You may – hopefully – now wonder what that website actually is? It’s an MMO search engine! Quite simple, but very helpful. I know from the search terms of our blog that people regularly try to figure out if one MMO suits them or which of several MMOs they might enjoy trying out. This search engine can help you with that. It’s got quite elaborate filters letting you decide what you want, what you don’t want, what’s irrelevant and so on. The MMOs are also colour-coded by their release status (released, beta, development, cancelled).

I tested it trying to find upcoming MMOs that may be interesting for me and the search engine showed me Black Desert Online and Wild Terra. I don’t really know what I would need to change to get Project Gorgon to show up for me. :p But here is Project Gorgon’s profile on MMO+. At the very bottom of the game’s pages, you can find a button that lets you send in a suggestion in case you find something is incorrect with a profile.

So, if you’re looking for a new MMO to try, maybe this website can help you!

    That seems pretty handy. I remember years ago when I was a bit burned out of MMOs and looking for something to keep me interested into the genre. At the time I thought housing, roleplaying and a good crafting system would do it. But googling for those was pretty hard back then. There wasn’t all that many MMOs that had housing on them and the ones that did the information wasn’t very clear on how they worked. If such a site existed back then it would certainly have made my life a lot easier!
