This week in MMO crowdfunding news, Star Citizen stole the show, first with a video showcasing its extraordinarily detailed character face tech, then rather unintentionally in a Kotaku piece that sought to investigate the game’s controversial crowdfunded development process. Meanwhile, Fragmented continued enhancements to housing and melee combat; Gloria Victis tidied up its new dynamic events system; Worlds Adrift prepped [...]

There are two things you need to know about the newest member of Gazillion’s board of directors. Mark Rubin is an avid MMORPG player (he cites both Marvel Heroes and Star Wars: The Old Republic as his go-to titles), and he considers himself a “whale” in his spending habits. In a new interview with Venture Beat, Rubin discusses how he [...]

DM-Codex Progress Report
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 September 2016, 5:08 pm
My DM-Codex remake was getting a little too big (filesize) and I wanted to scale the whole map up a bit since it was starting to play a bit too tight after multiple in game changes to movement and player scale over several months.I decided to redo the


The Stream Team: Ascending SMITE’s charity challenge rankings
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 September 2016, 3:55 pm
You always have to start at the bottom, but MassivelyOP’s MJ doesn’t plan on staying there! No, she has plans to ascend SMITE’s charity challenge ladder. That means getting past the fourth and fifth rounds, which so far have proven difficult. But each battle makes MJ a bit stronger, so she’s ready to tackle those rounds — and maybe even [...]

Massively OP’s guide to the best upcoming indie MMORPGs, part one
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 September 2016, 2:00 pm
When you write for an MMORPG website that covers literally hundreds of games and could probably add in hundreds more that are extinct, are in operation only overseas, or are so incredibly niche that their creators’ moms don’t even know about them, you start devoting a large portion of your brain to trying to keep details about all of these [...]

Sunless Skies Takes Sunless Sea To The Stars In 2017
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 September 2016, 12:00 pm
‘Sunless Skies‘ sounds a bit too ‘A Day Trip To Reading’ to my ears. I guess 2unless 2ea, Sunless Sea 2: None More Sunless and 2 Sea 2 Sunless were deemed insufficiently lyrical. The name, of course, matters nought: what does matter is that charmingly bleak, ocean-bound, narrative rougelikelikelike12 Sunless Sea [official site] is going […]


The Stream Team: Tame a Jerboa on this ARK scavenger hunt
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 September 2016, 11:55 am
ARK’s Scorched Earth expansion added a whole bunch of new items and dinos, but those are only available on the Scorched earth map. Or are they? One advantage of a privately hosted server is that the admin can add the new stuff in for special events — and that’s exactly what’s happening here! By request, MassivelyOP’s MJ is hosting a [...]

Have You Played… SkiFree?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 September 2016, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. More like have you survived SkiFree? More like: have you felt the cold rush of wind and terror that is SkiFree? Have you sensed the unstoppable, inescapable presence of SkiFree as it catches […]


Camelot Unchained makes progress on the ‘long road’ to beta
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 September 2016, 11:00 am
It’s been a “longer road” to the first beta test than Camelot Unchained’s team originally anticipated, but the good news is that progress is definitely being made. Need proof? Then go no further than this week’s newsletter, which spells out in painstaking detail all of the projects being done. The ability system overhaul is still ongoing, with the team identifying [...]

WRUP: The anatomy of magic edition
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 September 2016, 10:00 am
I stopped practicing magic tricks when I realized that I didn’t like knowing the trick. It was kind of a sad thing for me; I really liked performing sleight-of-hand, and I was pretty darn good at it. I still take a lot of its fundamental lessons with me, too, since there’s a whole art to the patter and the revelation [...]

Street Fighter V Removes Buggy New Anti-Crack Tech
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 September 2016, 9:00 am
Capcom have removed the mysterious “anti-crack solution” they added to Street Fighter V [official site] in this week’s update. We knew the September update would add Urien, the Illuminati VP returning from earlier games, and he’s quite welcome. What was more of a surprise is the anti-crack tech that left some unable to play, triggered […]


The Daily Grind: What would you like MMORPG vanity pets to *do*?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 September 2016, 8:00 am
I think I’ve made Bree roll her eyes dozens of times when I’ve waxed poetic about my love for vanity pets in MMOs. Hey, some people — perhaps soulless, unfeeling people — might see them as obnoxious, purposeless, and pointless. Me? I don’t feel complete unless I have a companion frolicking away as I go about saving the world. Assuming [...]

Betawatch: Eternal Crusade hits launch (September 23, 2016)
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 September 2016, 8:00 pm
You know, it’s kind of weird to think that Eternal Crusade has actually launched. It seemed as if it would forever be in testing, but now it’s released. As for future support and further improvement, well, only time will tell. Hope springs eternal and all of that, yes? It’s not alone in the launch field either, as Heroes & Generals [...]

5 ways Star Citizen proves more crowdfunding isn't always a good thing
Posted by gamesradar news [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 September 2016, 5:20 pm
Star Citizen is the most crowdfunded thing, er, ever (unless you count actual charitable donations, I guess)


Call my bookie; here I was betting that Destiny: Rise of Iron's Wrath of the Machine Raid would go unconquered for three hours, and then Clan Redeem had to go and complete it in just over two
