Excerpt: We did not have much information on Ragnarok DS before it was released. After release was about the same. But about a year later it dawned on me that we had not covered this Nintendo DS game. So I got it on our video game wish list, and when the revenue came in purchased it.
Excerpt: Some of you may have heard of and even played the original Ragnarok Online, which is a massively multiplayer role playing game. Though deeply inspired by Norse mythology, the game also managed to reference cultures from all over the world, giving players a fun and interesting MMORPG.
