[​IMG] Over at Priest with a Cause, MMO blogger Shintar came up with a great question for those looking to play World of Warcraft’s upcoming special ruleset: Is it possible to play WoW Classic casually? How can you do just that? Considering how many modern gamers are in for a rude awakening when they return to […] Continue reading...
In a new interview with Newsweek, Star Citizen's Chris Roberts segued into a discussion of Anthem and what steps he would take to fix the game. Roberts believes, according to the interview, that gamers often have unreasonable expectations compounded by their hatred of EA. "A lot of gamers don't understand quite how difficult it is to deliver everything working flawlessly," Roberts stated. "The expectations keep ramping up and may be higher than people are humanly possible of delivering." [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Continue reading...
[​IMG] The City of Heroes rogue server drama continues this weekend as community work advances behind the scenes to bring the game back to life, with a reported 8000 accounts rolled and all trying to wedge into a test server that only overnight expanded to hold 1000. Thus far it’s all been without the formal blessing […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] Shh. Shhhhhhhh. Do not, under any circumstances, make a sound during Officially Sanctioned Sunday Afternoon Nap Hour. Some of us take it very, very seriously and mark this weekly event in any game that he or she plays. Hikari is already snoozing with a bunny in MapleStory 2, and if that’s not the cutest thing […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] It’s ironic that two of the games I regard most fondly are both titles that received a huge amount of support trying to make these titles into hits: WildStar and Final Fantasy XIV. It’s easy to forget now, but there was a time when FFXIV seemed like an absolute money pit and a waste of effort to salvage, and while […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] This week in MMO crowdfunding, it’s been superhero insanity, and I don’t even mean City of Heroes. We got updates from Ship of Heroes and Heroes and Villains, but also City of Titans. In fact, the Titans crew dropped some exclusive screenshots our way, showing off an enemy costume mid-way through design just ahead of […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] With spring finally in full swing and Easter just a couple of days away, Dark Age of Camelot and EverQuest II have just announced their own seasonal celebrations. In DaoC, the vicious Harbinger of Spring has returned. This mean little rabbit isn’t going to go down without a fight, and unless you happen to have […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] One of the refrains bleated by those who dislike esports is that competitors are not “real” athletes. This appears to be a similar idea held the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), which does not include collegiate esports as part of its umbrella and offers no guidelines for managing the health of collegiate esports players. To […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] Considering how quickly you can level up in Star Trek Online these days (thanks, duty officers!), transferring to new ships every 10 levels has become far more of an annoyance than a delicious carrot to chase. Cryptic must think so too, as the studio is bringing a change “very soon” to allow players to stick […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] The schedule for Lord of the Rings Online’s special events keeps us hopping most of the year-round, as Standing Stone Games weaves major festivals, bonus periods, and smaller activities (such as Hobnanigans) into each month. But it’s the former that I want to discuss today, especially as we’re just coming off of a Yule Festival […] Continue reading...
