Wot I Think: Steep
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 December 2016, 2:30 pm
Steep [official site] is a lot like the extreme sportspeople it represents. It is excitable, loud and eager to have fun, fast and fresh. But in its haste and keenness it has somehow forgotten to take some of the most obvious precautions and frequently falls down flat on its face. The disappointing thing is that […]


Oculus Touch Review: The Games
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 December 2016, 3:00 pm
I’ve already yammered about the design and capabilities of the Oculus Touch motion controller hardware itself, and now it’s time to talk software. Around 50 Touch-enabled VR games and apps launched this week – more than I can feasibly hope to look at, but I’ve been able to finger-gun and swipe and prod in enough […]


IF Only: What to watch for
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 December 2016, 4:00 pm
Most of my columns look at a particular author, game, style, or theme in IF that you might be interested in trying out. But if you’re new to interactive fiction entirely and want to branch out into finding new work of your own, where would you look? Here’s a quick tour of some interesting things […]

Choose My Adventure: Assassinating randoms in The Elder Scrolls Online
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 December 2016, 3:00 pm
It’s weird how attitudes towards death vary depending on the video game and the structure set up. In Saints Row the Third, a friend and I played a madcap duo named Morgan and Ryoko, and I have never once given a second thought to Ryoko’s habit of flinging grenades into the other lane of traffic for no reason outside of [...]

Gigantic steamrolls in with a spotlight on the Margrave
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 December 2016, 3:30 pm
He’s large! He’s demonic! He’s definitely been skipping leg day! He’s the Margrave, and he’s the latest hero in Gigantic’s lineup, quite possibly the last to be featured before the open beta kicks off. Would that bother the Margrave? Not in the least; the Margrave is kind of a one-issue guy, and that one issue is whether or not there’s [...]

Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 December 2016, 4:00 pm
Are you happy with your World of Warcraft class? Oh, there’s always something to complain about, although some players have more legitimate grievances than others in this regard.

Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 December 2016, 4:30 pm

Today, Skyforge announced that its in-development political system, the Council of Gods, is being postponed indefinitely.

Sprint stores are PokéStops and Gyms for 'Pokémon Go'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 December 2016, 3:50 pm

As rumored, Niantic is bringing brand partnerships to its hit augmented reality game, Pokémon Go. The software developer has announced that Sprint will have the first sponsored locations in the US, with more than 10,500 stores expected to be turned into PokéStops and Gyms. It's worth nothing this doesn't only include Sprint's namesake shops, but also those from Boost Mobile and RadioShack -- which are owned by the carrier. These spaces will feature in-store charging stations too, in case your smartphone can't keep up with all your quests.

Wot I Think: Lara Croft GO
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 December 2016, 2:00 pm
It sounds like hyperbole to say it, but I think Lara Croft GO [official site] is about as close to perfect as games can get. It’s also something of a backhanded compliment, because so often what we love, what stands out most about games, is where their ambition reaches beyond their potential for perfection. But […]

In Which I Ramble About Being All Things to All People
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 December 2016, 1:15 pm
Yeah, well, that’s just, like, your opinion, man -The Dude If you asked me what the most egregious flaw in MMORPG development has been over the history of the genre, I would say it was a “lack of focus.” Overreach, trying to have too


I think it’s fair to say that the $15 subscription model just isn’t cutting it for MMORPGs anymore. I understand that. The $15 pricetag dates back at least 15 years, and even if we were to factor in inflation alone, the cost of that subscription would be worth about $19 today. Teams creating the content were a lot smaller then, and frankly, [...]

Ahead of its big stream on Friday, Pantheon’s newsletter today is bursting with details on the Shaman class, which is due for its reveal during the event.
