I just became aware of Rogue Legacy today, via RockLeeSmile’s YouTube channel, and I’m already a giddy-child-hype-machine over this game. As Nick puts it in his preview of the game, it’s like a mix of 10,000,000 and a “Metroid-vania” platformer RPG (as he refers to the in-development game, Chasm). That’s all I’ll say, as I […]


New post(s)?
Posted by MMOverdose! [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 May 2013, 1:25 pm
A friendly comment on a random news post I made in 2010 may have just inspired me to ressurrect this blog from the dead. It has already spurred me to try and be more active in WoW (and get a class I actually enjoy to level 90), install DC Universe Online, and has me looking [...]


Rift: Planes of Telara could be something amazing
Posted by MMOverdose! [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 September 2010, 7:02 am
I’ve had my eyes on Trion World‘s Rift: Planes of Telara since it was first unveiled a year ago at E3 as Heroes of Telara. Many shrugged it off as another cookie-cutter “WoW clone,” but I saw some promise in it. Now, a year later, the more I read and see about it, the more [...]


FFXIV Open Beta Delay + Minecrafting
Posted by MMOverdose! [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 September 2010, 7:46 am
As you’ve probably heard by now, the Final Fantasy XIV Open Beta was abruptly delayed, just hours before it was supposed to go live. The official statement, as well as the follow-up statement are seen below. FINAL FANTASY XIV Open Beta Test Postponed FINAL FANTASY XIV Open Beta Test, which is scheduled to begin at 19:00 [...]

Final Fantasy XIV XP Threshold Properly Explained
Posted by MMOverdose! [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 August 2010, 9:35 pm
Final Fantasy XI forums and fansites blew up yesterday with the translation of a developer update posted on the Japanese beta site that covered the “surplus system,” or as I like to call it now, the “xp threshold system.” People were going crazy with conspiracy theories and threats of “I just canceled my CE pre-order [...]


Great Write-Up On The FFXIV “XP Threshold/Fatigue” System
Posted by MMOverdose! [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 August 2010, 9:37 pm
Kudos to Cindy, over at MMOvoices, for directing me to this. Super-kudos to Suzaku, at Eorzapedia, for writing this up! News of Final Fantasy XIV’s fatigue system has hit the web recently, causing a firestorm of controversy.  Translation issues and mass speculation served to light a fire in the community, and a vocal segment is demanding [...]


Brand Spankin’ New FFXIV Trailer
Posted by MMOverdose! [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 August 2010, 9:38 pm
Can Open Beta hurry up and start already?! UPDATE: My rhetorical questioning has been answered. It looks like Open Beta will begin August 31st. That is even earlier than “early Septemeber!” Thank you, FFXIVCORE for being amazingly fast at breaking news.


When did it become “OK” to have a subscription fee AND a cash-shop?
Posted by MMOverdose! [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 August 2010, 9:40 pm
Listening to the latest MMOvoices podcast and their discussion of EverQuest Extended (and its horrible implementation of the ‘free2play’ model) reminded me that EverQuest 2 already has a cash-shop within the regular, $15/month subscription, retail boxed-product. This made me think of Cryptic, who I consider to be the most dirty and unapologetic violators of this [...]


My Death Knight has RISEN
Posted by iWinButton [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2009, 3:44 pm
I’ve been trying my damnedest to find a way to enjoy WoW the last few months, mainly because it’s the only MMORPG my friend is willing to play (yep, it was his first). Yeterday I decided to hop on my 67 Death Knight, Crypticill, and see if I could bump him to 68 quick enough [...]


Darkfall, Mortal Online, and a cold
Posted by iWinButton [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 July 2009, 2:03 pm
I woke up to the discovery that Darkfall has finally moved into the 21st century with a legit looking website and news that the North American launch is schedule for July 13th. I normally wouldn’t give this any coverage because I was utterly disappointed with the European launch of DF, but the first “free expansion” [...]


Reminder: Mortal Online Pre-Orders
Posted by iWinButton [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 July 2009, 8:30 pm
Just wanted to remind anyone interested that the Mortal Online pre-orders will go live tomorrow (Monday) at 20:00 GMT+1, which is 3:00 P.M. Eastern or 12:00 P.M. Pacific. I’ll probably hold out to hear more about when the beta is starting before making the decision to pre-order or not, but I thought I would do [...]


Darkfall has fallen on North America
Posted by iWinButton [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 July 2009, 10:48 pm
I’m still befallen with a terrible cold/sinus infection, but I wanted to make a quick update before the NyQuil kicks in. I’ve been just lounging on the couch all day trying to feel better, missing all of the big Darkfall Online and Mortal Online happenings today. On that topic, I would go out on a [...]


Magic The Gathering Soda

You are a Planeswalker with an arsenal of sorcery at your command…and a bottle of soda in your hand. Jones Soda Co. and Magic The Gathering have teamed up to bring you limited edition customized Powerful Soda for Planeswalkers from the eagerly awaited M10 edition. Magic The Gathering  picked some of their most iconic characters representing the [...]


Best iPhone App yet? WoW Mobile Armory
Posted by iWinButton [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 July 2009, 10:48 pm
Blizzard has just released the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory iPhone app. Mark this up as more proof of why the app store is 90% of the reason to even own an iPhone in my opinion. With the WoW Mobile Armory you can do pretty much everything you can do on the official WoW Armory website: Search [...]


A Free2Play Weekend
Posted by iWinButton [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 July 2009, 5:36 am
A friend and I had one of our monthly LAN party-of-sort (is it honestly a LAN party if it’s just 2 people? Sure) and as such this found me playing a multitude of random games I would normally not play on my own. The plan all week had been to pick up Darkfall or reactivate [...]


First Impressions: Champions Online
Posted by iWinButton [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 September 2009, 10:12 am
I could go on and divulge into why I’ve been a ghost for a bit but it’s honestly too complicated, melodramatic, and depressing to really get into, so just take this post and appreciate it! I’m overdue to talk about my recent over-indulgence of WoW, but I’ll save that for another time. For now, let [...]


League of Legends Beta Giveaway
Posted by iWinButton [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2009, 9:03 pm
I have a handful (eight at the moment) of League of Legends beta invites to send out and all you have to do is leave a comment with your email or shoot me an email to iWinButton.jt[at]gmail[dot]com with the subject “LoL Beta.” I’ll update this post once all eight of the invites have been taken [...]


Torchlight is $10 on Steam!
Posted by iWinButton [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 December 2009, 4:22 am
I have sucked at anything that resembles writing/blogging lately, but I felt this was needed. Torchlight is 50% (re: $10) on Steam until Monday. Go buy it! That is all. UPDATE: It’s just $4.99 on Steam today (12/26)!

Going AFK for RL problems
Posted by iWinButton [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 July 2009, 1:06 am
Something has come up in my life that needs my full attention and is life-changing/breaking. I know this is a blog and all, but I tend to always try to keep it somewhat related to the topic, so I won’t go into any details (as it has nothing to do with PC gaming and MMOs). In [...]
