I like to think of myself as fluent with the most up-to-date discussions about all manner of video games, but I always seem to find myself playing titles from a generation behind the curve. I know I'm not the only one out there who hasn't yet played Mass Effect 3, but by golly, it's on my shelf of 360 games, and I'll get to it. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Continue reading...
[​IMG] I don’t have ready access to it any longer – it was a while ago – but I recall reading something to the general effect that some players thought that the Empire in Star Wars: The Old Republic wouldn’t be the evil faction. That always tickled me. I mean, the franchise has had a pretty solid stance against empires since [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered.

Summer Combat Milestone 1 has been in pre-alpha for the past few weeks and while it was expected to extend invitations to Alpha 1 backers soon, none of us were expecting this to happen on the Friday before a holiday weekend! Todd Coleman dropped a major hint in the morning and by 6pm there was an influx of fresh blood into the Hunger Dome combat test. LotD is heavily represented in this early access with myself (Ren), Valor, Lake, Jbigg and Piikaa already in, and at least Gaunsaku joining us later this weekend. If you have Alpha 1 access and are Kickstarter #2680 or below you should have received an email so send an email to ACE support if you think you should have gotten something but didn't - they had some bugs in the early distribution. Tests are running on scheduled times for a couple hours each event, with the next being a double header on Monday. As there is no NDA, the testing forums are open to public view so head over to check out the feedback. We will share our streams, videos, and feedback in this thread as the testing continues through the coming days. It is an exciting time as the game has a great start for such a short development cycle and already really fun. To kick things off, here is a video courtesy of Ren and Lobo Productions. We hope you enjoy watching as much as we enjoyed the making!
[​IMG] This week in MMO crowdfunding news, not a whole lot happened! In the land of pseudo-MMOs, though, Kickstarter darling and PvE-focused survival sandbox Eco made headlines for its harsh PvP and justice system stretch goal. MassivelyOP’s Andrew Ross also spoke with Eco designer John Krajewski and published a lengthy look at how the title seeks to educate gamers with its [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered.

[​IMG] Shards Online’s latest newsletter is out, and with it an update from project lead Derek Brinkmann. He says that the dev team is currently focused on game balance, the user interface, and general polish, which represent the “biggest barriers to fun” in the current pre-alpha build. Brinkmann also hints at a Fall release for phase three of pre-alpha testing. Elsewhere [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered.

[​IMG] If you’re attending DragonCon this weekend, you might see various Star Citizen developers chatting up gamers and sharing their perspectives on various dev panels.

[​IMG] Some of you reading this may simply never have known a world before the internet existed by virtue of your age. It’s not your fault, but as generational divisions go, this was a biggie. The internet saturates so much of our lives now that it’s even difficult for those of us born prior to the ’90s to remember how we [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered.

[​IMG] The last time MassivelyOP’s MJ went deep-sea diving in ARK: Survival Evolved, she lost her beloved Cutie Pie — a massive crocodile who valiantly avenged MJ’s death at the jaws of mega sharks before succumbing to the swarm. Now, armed with another high-level giant crocodile, a shark, a spino, and a dolphin as well as a set of breathing gear, [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered.
