[​IMG] If you happen to live in Southeast Asia, you might have an opportunity to play dino wrangler this weekend that the rest of the world will not. That’s because Nexon is running a closed beta test in the region for its newly retitled Durango: Wild Lands. Gamers in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia can download and try out the game [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered.

[​IMG] If you love to hate on brightly colored cartoony-stylized graphics of games like World of Warcraft, League of Legends, and even Wildstar, know that the tide’s against you. So goes the argument of Motiga’s Vinod Rams, who compares MOBA Gigantic’s graphics to candy during a recent Gamasutra livestream. The idea, he says, was to combine styles popularized by Disney and Hayao [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered. Please review our terms of use for feeds.

[​IMG] When you complete or get tired of the storyline in Neverwinter’s Tomb of Annihilation module, you can simply grab your weapon and go on a beast hunt for glory and rewards. With the new hunt system, players can group up and head out to certain locations to summon legendary foes to defeat. By doing this, they’ll gradually work their way [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered. Please review our terms of use for feeds. Continue reading...
[​IMG] Have you ever been able to capture a truly victorious moment in your MMORPG journeys? Rees Racer did, and he is not above showing off (fortunately for us!). “No spoilers, so I’ll just pass along a TERA cutscene shot from a meeting with Priestess Ciebel after the defeat of a traitorous threat to the Alliance,” Rees writes. “Of course, my [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered.

[​IMG] I can tell you what my observations have been about how people act based on their first MMO, but I can only guess at the ways having Final Fantasy XI as my first game have influenced my subsequent play choices. I know that after that game I’m far more leery of any game requiring me to group up with others [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered.

[​IMG] This week in MMO crowdfunding, indie sandbox Albion Online — whose 250,000 founders reportedly crowdfunded the game for almost $10,000,000 — formally launched. The buy-to-play isometric game has hardcore old-school flair with a potentially alienating PvP template, but it’s brought plenty of PvE content along for the ride in an attempt to woo a more diverse playerbase. Meanwhile, Project Gorgon made [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered. Please review our terms of use for feeds. Continue reading...
[​IMG] Check out Camelot Unchained’s first pass at a player inventory UI. What do you think? Looks pretty sharp, doesn’t it? This glimpse was part of this week’s development newsletter. It sounds as though the team also made a big step forward with client performance: “Call it scene-locking, call it broken, call it a PITA, but the good news is that [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered.

[​IMG] If you’ve ever been to a massive gathering of tech-savvy people — like say, a gaming convention — you know better than to rely on the internet for sending emails or tweeting consistently, let alone for gaming itself. That’s just one of the lessons being learned by Niantic and the thousands of people who paid for tickets to Pokemon Go [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered.

[​IMG] Life is different in Conan Exiles now that Massively OP’s MJ can climb to great heights — and so is death! It makes sense to have new ways to die in a survival game, no? But there are practical uses for climbing as well; for instance, it certainly makes work on her waterfall retreat easier. Touring a neighbor’s castle has [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered. Please review our terms of use for feeds. Continue reading...
[​IMG] Publishing a video game globally is a monumental task, more so if it is a live online game such as what you’d find with MMORPGs. With different countries and regions come various traditions, prohibitions, language barriers, government restrictions, playstyle expectations, and financial models that must all be sorted out and overcome for these games to come out. One of the [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered. Please review our terms of use for feeds. Continue reading...
