[​IMG] This week’s Massively Overthinking topics comes from Kickstarter donor XanadoX, who wants us to talk about “playing MMOs in another language: Korean, Japanese, or even English if English is not your mother tongue.” Have you done it?

[​IMG] What exactly is Wander? Now is your chance to see! An explorer at heart, MassivelyOP’s MJ can’t wait to diving into the newly launched cooperative exploration game devoid of combat.

[​IMG] CCP’s dev blogs are usually pretty wordy. It makes sense, given EVE Online’s complexity, but occasionally it’s nice to see some pretty pictures from the sci-fi sandbox title as opposed to walls of text. Such is the case with today’s post featuring ship skins. Don’t fret because there’s some verbiage, too, but basically the take-away is that there are a [...] Continue reading...
[​IMG] Since landing on Steam early access last week, Tree of Life has been patching frequently and furiously.
