On November 2, 1999, Microsoft and Turbine launched Asheron's Call, a massively multiplayer online fantasy role-playing game that stood toe-to-toe with the likes of EverQuest and Ultima Online. On January 31, Asheron's Call and its sequel are coming to an end.


That's it, DC Comics needs to revoke Turbine's licence to create variant versions of iconic heroes for MOBA Infinite Crisis. I draw the line at popped-collar, sandals-with-socks "SoCal Hal" Green Lantern.


Even if you've never played it, you've probably heard of Asheron's Call. A pioneering MMORPG, it's been around for over 15 years now. And while it will still be around for a few more to come, AC's developers have announced that they're ceasing work on the game.
