Remember Tera, the massively multiplayer online role-playing game with the really cool combat system that came out on PC back in 2012? The free-to-play game is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year.
You know what I love about massively multiplayer online role-playing games? Losing myself in the fiction of a fantasy world. You know what completely ruins that feeling? The MMORPG equivalent of licensed Happy Meal toys.
Last year, Kotaku showed images of a Bitcoin mining operation in Hong Kong. It was fancy! However, these recent photos of a Bitcoin mine in northeast China are anything but.
In China, there's a contest for online game Tera. According to the game's official site, "a thousand beautiful women" install the game on gamers' computers. Not at once, mind you.
True story—during my time playing En Masse Entertainment's MMO Tera, my guild and I were attempting to recreate the trailer for the film 300 in-game for some silly reason.

Halloween is still a week from today, so you'll have to wait until next Wednesday if you want to go trick-or-treating in the real world. (Or at least, if you want to do it without getting the cops called.)

Now that my review of En Masse Entertainment's slightly game-changing MMO Tera is in the can, you might find yourself wanting to give the game a try. And like magic, Tera is now offering a seven day free trial. What can you do in seven days?

It's the final week of my coverage of En Masse Entertainment's massively multiplayer fantasy role-playing game Tera. Normally at this point I would be sick to death of playing and eager to reclaim my free time. Instead, I find myself more invested in the game than ever before.
