A site worth checking out

A very cool looking girl with wings onI spent most of my Saturday looking around the Internet, and I came across a fantastic site called ‘Aeria Games’, which is definitely worth checking out!

The site is basically all about free, yes that is correct ‘free’ online multi-player RPG’S. All you have to do is register. Which gets you into your own account, complete with a profile with which you can communicate with other online gamers which is pretty cool. And from there you download one of there many RPG’S, so that you can play it.

I am still exploring this site, and its many features. And I will keep you updated on there RPG’S. Especially the one I just downloaded ‘Last Chaos’ of which I have included some screen shots. Its a multiple player RPG set in the land of Iris, within which terror reigns after an epic battle with the gods. As a player you have full control over your characters destiny, and as such every action and decision you make affects your characters path through the game. It is through completing missions and exploring the world of ‘Last Chaos’ that you increase your characters abilities, enabling you to become the true Ruler of Iris.

And I have to say it looks pretty good! I will keep you posted on the site and all the games within it.

I also recommend you check out their amazingly frustrating but highly addictive ‘mini games’ which you have access too, from your profile.One of the cities
