[​IMG] Maybe it’s just me, but with the steady drip of information that we’ve gotten about Final Fantasy XIV‘s first expansion, I find myself sometimes having trouble keeping track of what has and hasn’t been discussed to death. There’s a lot of stuff! And it’s almost universally interesting stuff, at that. At least, it is if you’re almost pathological in your [...] Continue reading...

Jason asks the question: Should we be concerned about how hard it is to get "non-essential" items like skins or those elusive beta portals? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Continue reading...
[​IMG] The voters have spoken, and EverQuest’s newest progression server will be named Ragefire. “While the vote is still live in-game, Ragefire is ahead by a SIGNIFICANT margin and that’ll be the name of our new time locked progression server,” Daybreak said. The studio is continuing to take in player polls for various details on the progression server, although you can [...] Continue reading...
[​IMG] A new biome is coming to SkySaga with its fourth alpha test: the desert. Of course, this being SkySaga and all, the desert promises to be a pretty cute and adorable place to visit, apparently drawing inspiration from the American southwest.

Cory Jones of Cryptozoic and HEX Entertainment sat down virtually on Skype with me last week to give me my first taste of HEX: Shards of Fate. For those unfamiliar, HEX is one of Kickstarter's first big success stories.

[​IMG] I got a new gaming computer last week, and I’m in the process of downloading a few MMOs. I’ve only got 300 GB to work with, though, thanks to Comcast, it’s godawful bandwidth restrictions, and the fact that it has a real live monopoly on internet service in my hometown. I’ve already downloaded and installed GTA Online (60 GB), Star Citizen (25 GB), [...] Continue reading...
[​IMG] Were you too busy gaming this week to pay attention to MMO news? Get caught up every Sunday evening with Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review! You know what scared me the most about Daybreak’s ongoing drama earlier this year? John Smedley stopped saying wild things in interviews and social media. But don’t worry, guys; the Smed is back.
