RuneScape Generates Buzz

Posted on June 13, 2006

Yahoo's Buzz Log reports that the RuneScape MMORPG, which offers a free web browser version, is generating a lot of buzz and search activity. Yahoo says RuneScape has a free version and can run on a web browser. It says it is not as pretty as fantasy games like World of Warcraft.

Sometimes we all need a break from our day-to-day lives. What better time to log out of the real world and log in to a massively multiplayer online role playing game? And the more unrealistic the roles are to play, the better-like Robusto29, a left-handed, sword-wielding warrior, who also bakes banana pancakes for weary travelers. That's how we roll on RuneScape, a top-100 player in the Buzz.

Boasting over 2 million users worldwide, RuneScape offers a free version and can be run in a web browser, allowing for some real nice lunchtime escapes from cubicleland. While it may not be as easy on the eyes as some other popular online RPG games, like World of Warcraft, City of Heroes, or EverQuest, RuneScape is still a lot better way to kill time than pushing around cells in a spreadsheet.

The Yahoo Buzz entry lists the most popular RuneScape searches including tips and hacks. Everyone wants a quick solution. Sometimes you need one if you don't have a lot of time to put in to building up a character.
