Mourning: "To Give it More R"
Posted: Wednesday March 24th, 2004 by

So, one of my new favorite sites MMORPG.Com (which I've mentioned before) had a little news blip that was both new and strange. It seems that the MMOG 'Realms of Torment' is changing it's name to 'MouRning'. Now, initially my brain said "news hungry, marketing ploy". But, it seems there might possibly be some copyright issues with the game 'Planescape: Torment'.

What I don't understand though, is the capitalization of the R in the middle of the name. It just doesn't make any damn sense.

At any rate, I hadn't really looked at this game at all. So the news blurb sent me scurrying off to their site to dig for fuel for a comic. Of course, being the art kind guy that I am, I thumbed through the screenshots first.

Now, the environments are pretty nice. Though I don't trust how much the skies look like photographs. It kinda clashes with the feel of the rest of the game. But, when it comes to monsters and the graphics used for architecture... the game is currently sorely lacking. The monsters look like posable asexual marshmellow things. And, the graphics on the building look a tad too washed out.

I can only imagine the meeting that went on to come up with the name of the game, and I would pay real money to have been sitting there during the stroke of brilliance that was the idea to capitalize the R. **shakes his head**
