Lords of the Dead

[​IMG] Welcome back to another roundup of MMOs and MMO-adjacent games you’ve (probably) never heard of — or have totally forgotten about until now! We’ll start today with Avorion, a “procedural co-op space sandbox where players can build their own space ships out of dynamically scalable blocks.” So, space LEGOs. We can get behind that. Avorion […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] All right, folks, it’s time to talk. And we’re going to start by talking about Guild Wars 2, a game I used to play regularly and that several other people of a particular stripe also played regularly at one point. My job here is to work as a reporter and analyst about the industry. That means internalizing […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] While the idea of gaming peripheral manufacturer Razer creating medical equipment might first bring to mind the Razer Toaster, this change of manufacturing focus for the company is very real and extremely philanthropic. Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan announced on Twitter that Razer’s engineers and designers have been working over the past several days to repurpose […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] Just in this morning’s roundup, the MOP commenters were debating whether and how to play Lord of the Rings Online during the virus-induced downtime some gamers are having right now. Welp, Standing Stone Games just settled that debate, making the choice much easier for you. “Here at Standing Stone Games our goal is to bring […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] Earlier today, we covered a new online sandbox called Avorion that’s just launched on Steam this month – and it was a real launch, no early access shenanigans. Studio Boxelware describes the game as a vast sandbox where players fight pirates, explore the galaxy, befriend factions, build up a fleet, make money, smuggle goods, and […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] Profane, the full-loot open PvP sandbox from Brazilian dev studio Insane that we told you about in January, has put out another post to its official subreddit, this time outlining how the devs are developing the game. And it, apparently, involves gates. Gates here are references to different systems that the team needs to develop. […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] I want more MMO fashion reports. Character creation is one of the first avenues of player self-expression and it very often is one of the best, and that’s worth some spotlight time. Take the case of the Star Trek Online player who created their own (mostly) Super Friends away team or the Sea of Thieves […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] When you first start playing Final Fantasy XI, you are given a short cutscene and then… nothing. You are standing in a city and left without more than cursory direction. Following that cursory direction sends you to someone who gives you another cursory direction, and you then get to amble through a very gradual and meandering […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] This is probably not how you want to get noticed by another major name in the sci-fi industry, but Star Citizen seems to have severely irked the writer of the popular Expanse series due to a privacy bug that activated his computer’s camera without permission. “I install you and you instantly turn my laptop camera […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] Good news, Final Fantasy XIV fans, the date we had all expected for the game’s next patch via context clues has been confirmed! Yes, patch 5.2, Echoes of a Fallen Star, will go live on February 18th with a new dungeon, new trials, new Eden raids, and a new chance to get a mount based on […] Continue reading...
