Dofus is not like many massively multiplayer games out there. It is turn based and designed entirely in Flash. When I read "turn-based" I think of games like Chrono Trigger or any of the thirty seven Final Fantasy games (except the actual MMO they made). Hailing from France this game also has some things that could remind you of anime. However, this game's style is more like some goofy cartoon that you saw one morning and had no idea what the hell you were watching.
When first arriving at their site, I was greeted with some picture that I had to click on in order to actually see the website. Dofus was already teasing me by playing it's hard to get tactics. Unfortunatly for Dofus, I don't understand the meaning to "no." After clicking on several pictures I finally arrived to the real Dofus website.
Previously unknown to me, you are first treated to a loud video trailer of the game that nearly blows out your speakers. After squealing like a little girl, I proceeded to register my Dofus account. This time I was not asked to mail anyone my social security card with a pint of blood and a sample of semen.
There are many classes in the game and all of them look equally goofy and deformed. This is another game in which your physical appearance is determined by the class you choose. If you want to be a warrior class, get use to running around with no shirt and some bright red tattoos. If you want to master the bow and arrow, be prepared to look like a giant tool.
For the reason stated above, I chose to go with an archer. This would be the first game in which I already had a connection with my character before even creating it. I was eager to bust my Dofus cherry and experience some intense turn-based combat.
Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.
Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
Ignore the hype. Find out how these games will likely go right or wrong.
"Free" MMORPGs have grown in popularity to the point of supersaturation.
