The Hive Leader looks at Absolver and Legends of Equestria

Have 10 minutes or so and want some serious, hard-hitting analysis of a pair of online RPGs? You best go elsewhere, because we are about to venture into the territory of The Hive Leader once again.

This YouTuber recently took a look at both Legends of Equestria and Absolver in his search for entertainment. Of the former, he says the MMO is “surprisingly good” and is the first My Little Pony(ish) game that he would let his daughter play. He did criticize it a little for its lack of voice acting and an incredibly small in-game map.

As for Absolver, The Hive Leader had a few upbeat things to say about its combat, but said that once the novelty of that wore off, he was left with a “mediocre [Dark] Souls-like.” Check them both out after the break!

“Butt shards” lol, apt description.

The Absolver vid is worth a watch, and I am only half way through.

Legends of Equestria has come quite a long way since it started off development, good on the team for keeping at it.
It’s great to see a non-profit indie fan MMO made with people across the world of different ages all work together for one goal.

For cuteness overload the Equestria vid is now one of my favorite reviews ever.

And to think that once upon a time he had to use the Massively comments section to get attention to his videos, now articles do it for him. ;p

Jokes aside, it scares me that there’s an actual MLP MMO.

There was like two others in development but they got C&D’d.

I know, right? I remember coming here to shamelessly plug my videos and hoping Massively wouldn’t pull them down. It helped me get my first few hundred followers. Seems like so long ago.

I feel like this is actually how I found you, but I’m not 100% sure. If it works, it works!

It looks adorable, but I wouldn’t want to be the guy who has to moderate the chat. Hopefully it uses preset options, like Wizard 101.

From their FAQ:
“We will have an extensive word filter within the game, along with a large and dedicated team of skilled moderators constantly keeping guard to ensure that all parts of our game maintain a child-friendly atmosphere. We have plenty of experience keeping our forum, Discord server, and the game itself during our previous Open Server Events safe and friendly for everybody, and will ensure that LoE remains a world for all to enjoy!”

It’s largely swear words and the such like what you’d find in RuneScape or some public chatrooms. It isn’t like the say how some games do it where you have to correctly type in an approved word correctly or face misspellers wrath.

Nah it’s open chat like most MMOs that wish to retain a playerbase should be. Defeats the point of an online game otherwise IMO.

Was that really your wife and daughter in the Equestria video, or you just using a VOIP bot program?
