An MMO top-down shooter? Sign me up! Oh, it's only for Koreans

I’m a huge shoot-em-up fan. I have, at this moment, at least 113 “shmups” installed on my computer (mostly from Shoot the Core and but it’s rare to see such a high-profile project, must less a massively multiplayer online one. Valkyrie Sky is that rare and extremely pleasant exception, only the problem is it’s only for Koreans — like you have to have a Korean social security number to download it.

Combos, gear, XP, skill trees, it’s all there. It’s like World of Warcraft combined with Radiant Silvergun and Armada.

Mother of God. I believe I just described the perfect game. Why oh why wasn’t I born in Korea?
