Asheron's Call 2 is on the way
Did you liked to play Asheron's Call? Well...if this is your case, you can rejoice in happiness. Yes, because Microsoft announced a few days ago that the sequel to their MMORPG is currently under development by Turbine Entertainment Software. Microsoft said that they are been working in this sequel since the shipment of the first game. Neither the title nor the release date were announced, but we do know that the game engine (Turbine Engine 2.0) and other stuff will be demonstrated at the Game Developers Conference, in March. Stay tuned for more information about this!

This section had been losing a lot of voters, so I decided to remove it. Nevertheless, for those who voted this month, here are the results. Chrono Trigger has kept the first place (and with a massive lead). Final Fantasy 6 achived the second, throwing Final Fantasy 7 to the third place. Final Fantasy 9 was the fourth. Closing the top was Chrono Cross.
