Guest Post: The Best MMO Games for Handheld Consoles
Here are some of the games that we think deserve to be in the hall of everlasting fame. With amazing graphics and extreme online multiplayer challenges, these games make it to the very top of our lists for consoles, such as the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS.
DragonQuest Monsters – Joker 2
Released by Square Enix, this is the fifth game in the DragonQuest franchise. Gamers need to explore wild areas and tame wild monsters. Once tamed, the monsters can be put to fight against others in turn-based combats. This game rocked the world of the Nintendo 3DS handhelds upon its release in 2011. The game is a role-playing game with online multiplayer modes as well. DQMJ2, on the other hand, makes great use of the Nintendo 3DS’s dual core ARM11 CPU.
The game makes use of the 3DS’s Wifi connectivity feature to connect to the online world. The gamer can play online tournaments, collectively called the Monster World Championships. Each online player has a unique code that others can use to connect to him or her. Online, one-on-one fights or practise matches can also be held with registered buddies. Practice fights are also playable with random online players. A maximum of eight players can connect to each other.
Mass Effect 3 – Special Edition
If there is one game franchise that kept the adrenalin pumping till the very end, it has to be the Mass Effect Series. Mass Effect 3 – Special Editions for Wii U was released by Bioware, the makers of Epic games such as BioShock. Mass Effect makes great use of the Wii U’s gamepad. Complex commands can be issued at the touch of a button and the results can be quite fun to watch on the screen.
The game puts the player in the shoes of Commander Shepard, who is the only one who can save the Earth from imminent annihilation. The storytelling is incredibly interactive, and the special edition comes with some unseen new features and content to keep the gamer engrossed until the very end. The online missions are available in co-op and multiplayer modes, and allow the player to play with multiple players during co-operative missions. The gameplay can be highly customised and the Nintendo console brings out the best in the game.
With the amazing graphics and level of interactivity that consoles and handhelds have to offer, playing these MMO online games with the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U takes the excitement to a different level altogether. In case of 3D games, one should consider the option to enjoy great 3D graphics with the Nintendo 3ds, as Nintendos are one of the best and reputed names in the video-gaming industry.
