[ Read Online AlterWorld (Play to Live #1) Ø marvel PDF ] by D. Rus ì One cannot open this book without cherishing the memory of classic text based rpgs and muds The whole series is imbued with it.
Critics claim that the author had single handedly created a unique genre LitRPG I think this is a bit overenthusiastic, as the concept is certainly not unique, there were other books published before, having similar gaming concepts, including Ernest Cline s Ready Player One, Conor Kostick s Epic or Piers Anthony s Killobyte The author s writing style is, however, worth noting The English translation is excellent, although sometimes I felt that the characters speech had been slightly modified to beaccessible to an American audience.
The author tried his best to introduce variety, which is quite a challenge when the game in question is mainly hack and slash Socialising of course is natural, so is love and hate, but there is a lot to see and think abo Okayinteresting premise This is the second series I ve started that is placed in a game world become real, at least for those in it I liked the first series better that said there s only 2 of them This series gets a bitserious as it goes along and it took me a little longer to get really involved in itbut I did and I plan to follow it up.
It seems a new phenomenon is sweeping the world Is it a plague Is it something else It seems people are being sort of absorbed into video games They become real digital characters as it were The bodies go into a sort of continual coma and separating them from their gaming capsule doesn t effect it They stay in the game.
This seems like a danger but to some, the badly handicapped, the aged any who s body has failedto them could it be a blessing It seems so to Max as cancer has given him a fast approaching de A New Pandemic The Perma Effect Has Taken Over Earth Of The Near Future Whenever You Play Your Favorite Online Game, Beware Your Mind Might Merge With The Virtual World And Dump Its Comatose Host Woe Be To Those Stuck Forever In Tetris And Still They Re The Lucky Ones Compared To Those Burning Alive Eternally Within The Scorched Hulls Of Tank Simulators But Some Unfortunates The Handicapped And The Terminally Ill, Shell Shocked Army Vets, Wronged Crime Victims And Other Society Misfits Choose To Flee Real Life Willingly, Escaping To The Limitless World Of Online Sword And Sorcery MMORPGs Once A Seasoned Gamer And Now A Terminal Cancer Patient, Max Grasps At This Final Chance To Preserve His Life And Identity So He Goes For It Goes For The Promise Of Immortality Shared With A Few Trusty Friends And The Woman He Loves Together They Roam The Roads Of AlterWorld And Sample Its Agony And Ecstasy Born Of Absolute Freedom This was really bad Like watching someone play Warcraft while they explain the rules and details behind every strategic decision while leveling up their character how many intelligence points, how much mana, how many experience points per kill, whether or not to buy a weapon or level up first, etc, etc It was so bad I can t even recommend this to hardcore gamers because they shouldn t be reading anyway They have crafting skills to level up DNF at 64% If you re looking for something like Ready Player One, this ain t it.
A enjoyable and entertaining story AlterWorld is a Virtual reality MMORPG Very similar to Sword art online, Legendary Moonlight Sculpture Ark Taking the concept of being trapped in a virtual reality a step further the protagonist abandons his cancer ridden body for the chance to grasp a potentially immortal virtual existence in the VRMMO of his choice in this case Alterworld.
At time of writing this book is free onI recommend giving it a try.
This book interested me from two different perspectives On one hand I m a gamer, on the other I m chronically ill I may not be dying from any of my illnesses, but my quality of life is quite low because of them Would I choose to enter an MMO for all eternity if I could Honestly I m not sure Maybe, but probably only if my husband came with me Said husband is busy playing an MMO as I type but he says he isn t sure either If I could go back in time and ask my December 2013 self one of the lowest times of my life I know she would have said yes in a heart beat I enjoyed the blend of game description and plot in this story At parts it was like listening to a friend describe his latest DD adventures We have equipment stats and ability descriptions that might be DNF 56%I was looking for a good LitRPG, and this seemed like a pretty famous one so jumped straight in.
I m now having to stop at just over half way through Flat characters I could push through if the game and world building was solid, but the sexism I m not normally one to care much, but damn the author majorly goes out of his way to be a neckbearding white knight sexist and confirms that everything women do is wrong Mildly terrifying.
I did enjoy the grinding gnolls in the beginning It wasn t exciting, but it was kind of mind numbing in the same way that actually playing an MMORPG is So that s a bit meta.
I ve no doubt that LitRPG will be the next big genre, so I m determined to get my hipster credit in before it lands hard If anyone has any suggestions, let me know I ll be trying Eden s Gate and Dragon s Wr
Believe in everything Believe in the main character, and believe in AlterWorld imbued vicarious pleasure to what is happening with the other characters Cool twisted plot, don t miss, secrets and mysteries are mushrooming look forward to continue the third book.
Excuse me, but what the f k is this Women are apparently meek fragile things who can t do anything but curl up into fetal position and wait for a big broad shouldered man to come save her This is the largest pile of sexist shit I ve had fed into my brain for the longest time The amount of negative affixes attached to women in this audiobook is astounding Women are portrayed like 5year olds who cry at nothing, smile, blush and shy, this is an all together extremely unhealthy view, it s like the author made them mentally handicapped or something Good thing they still look hot and function for sex, cuz that s the most important part, right The main character even speaks extremely condescendingly to his friend girlfriend Calling her a child, using a terrible demeanor which isn t helped by his greasy voice It s lik
