Deimos’s Daily Reads
Techie Steve Yu has a nice list of free softwares. Most of them are anti virus softwares so if you need an anti virus software, do check out that list which is quite comprehensive.
Deimos has little time to play games nowadays, especially during the weekdays. Hence, he resorts to playing simple games such as this one. Somehow, he still manages to find a little bit of time to kill some zombies in Dead Frontier MMO.
Dead Frontier MMO is still in open beta testing, some planned interesting features have not made it into the game yet. Deimos managed to level his Soldier to Level 17 so he hopes that the character database would not be wiped when the beta testing ends.
Action game play is simple, use WASD to control your character, aim around with the mouse to stab, slice, chop, etc the mindless zombies hungry for your flesh.
What makes it a MMORPG is the leveling system, inventory system plus the many players playing it, trading weapons, ammunitions, medical supplies and food between each other for cash, which is the in game currency and not to be confused with the real world cash.
Some features such as missions, attacks on the outpost, multiplayer etc are not available yet.
Game looks promising and there are plenty of players playing it at any given time, easily evidenced by the amount of active players hawking over the selling forum where the players hawk their virtual goods to be sold for virtual cash.
