Years after the fantasy MMORPG known as 'The World' suffered massive system failure, it has returned. Upgraded and re-written, the current incarnation of 'The World' gives players the freedom to find high adventure, embark on quests for treasure, and battle each other in arenas and tournaments. Player-Killers have become commonplace, however, and prey upon those weaker than they. Haseo, a careless player, was saved from such a fate by members of the Twilight Brigade - a guild with a legendary quest. Joining with the Twilight Brigade, they take on "The World" with all of its wonders and dangers. Will they find what they seek, and will Haseo be able to save those that mean the most to him from the unexplainable effects of 'The World'?

What I Didn't: Soundtrack is a messy jumble of different genres (that occasionally take from famous compositions), and seems to mostly consist of vocal tracks that may end up distracting... read more
