Review: Braving Britannia Tells the People’s History of Ultima Online
I had no idea what to expect from the book Braving Britannia: Tales of Life, Love, and Adventure by Wes Locher. I’ve never played Ultima Online, or any Ultima game if I’m being honest. I do, however, love hearing about why massively multiplayer online role playing games are so important to the those that play them, and a people’s history of the grandfather of all MMORPGs sounded like it would provide that. I wasn’t disappointed.
Sidequest was provided with a copy of Braving Britannia in exchange for a fair and honest review. (more…)
