I always wanted to have a game where I can conquer other territories and actually feel like they belong to me, little did I know Aeria Games heard my plea and announced: Dragon Knights.
In the game, players will combat the emerging threat of the malevolent dragon Kharvag. Defeated centuries prior by an enigmatic order known as the Dragon Knights, Kharvag has returned to wreak havoc on the world of Litos. It?s up to players to seek out the power and strength of the lost order by establishing a new legion of Dragon Knights willing to stand against their ancient enemy.
While players will adventure through lush and exotic landscapes and delve into perilous dungeons, the game also boasts a strong focus on large-scale PvP combat. Guilds can challenge each other to vast battles with many players. In addition, castle sieges offer a twist on guild warfare?an attacking guild must try to oust defenders from their castle. The winning guild retains ownership of the castle, allowing access to its functions and potentially lucrative tax revenue.
Dragon Knights also incorporates other unique features uncommon in free-to-play MMORPGs, such as the transformation and election systems. With the transformation system, players can actually take the form of various monsters in the game, altering not just their physical appearance, but also their battle capabilities. The election system allows players to fully participate in the political arena and vote their peers into influential positions such as Cardinal and Emperor, encouraging competition and rivalry beyond the battlefield.
Dragon Knights will require a client download, and like all Aeria Games titles, is free-to-play. Players interested in registering for the closed beta can visit www.http://dragonknights.aeriagames.com/signup.

Censorship Spells Trouble for League of Legends Patcher
Internet filtering has been a hot button issue for the past several years. With the slow gutting of protective measures like Net Neutrality, and with governmental powers seeking an end to online anonymity, it's rather harrowing to see the slow progression of political and social policing of the internet. Recently, after about a year of lobbying, the United Kingdom enacted a piece of legislation that many have come to call the "UK Porn Filter." What the filter requires is for British ISP's to implement filters and controls, which are on by default, that will block access to "violent material," not imited to "extremist and terrorist related content," "anorexia and eating disorder websites," and "suicide related websites."
