The Stream Team: Supporting pyromania in World of Warships
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 6:55 pm
Sailing. Setting things on fire. Sinking ships. What’s not to like about World of Warships? MassivelyOP’s MJ enjoys causing explosions — especially when it’s on an enemy battleship. It’s just a satisfying way to start the weekend. Her goal is to try out all the ships and see which blows things up the best, but she’s got quite a ways [...]

What July?

Well I’ve finally reached the far side of the chaotic patterns at work thankfully. So I’m trying to get my brain into blogging once more. It’s weird when I think that this time last year I was gearing up for Blaugust. I’ve had such a busy 3 months my blogging hasn’t really started in earnest […]

Camelot Unchained wants stealth but not the sucky kind
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 5:30 pm
Today’s Camelot Unchained update is a long one, and that’s because Mark Jacobs has a lot to cover. He talks about everything from backer benefits to the game’s terrain code and, oh yeah, there’s a little bit about the new stealth stretch goal. Jacobs goes to great lengths to describe how Camelot Unchained’s version of stealth won’t be easy mode, [...]

Meet the Oceanides, Skyforge’s main aquatic threat
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 6:00 pm
When I was a kid I used to go out with my grandfather on his fishing expeditions out in the Gulf of Mexico. What I saw him pull up in his nets convinced me then and there that I was best staying on dry land where I had the tactical advantage versus such horrible creatures. Son, the ocean is scary. [...]

Leaderboard: What’s your favorite EverQuest II class?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 3:30 pm
I’m back in EverQuest II and having a pretty good time with it. As per usual, though, I can’t decide on a primary class and have spent the better part of a week dabbling with a Shadowknight, an Assassin, a Bruiser, and a Ranger. As if choosing between those four isn’t difficult enough, guess what, there are 22 additional classes, [...]

The Stream Team: Checking out claims and giving away Landmark goodies
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 3:55 pm
Sometimes when you tour claims in Landmark, you have a theme you want to follow, such as trains, dragons, the wild west, or space ships. Other times, it’s worth it just to wander and soak in the variety in builder’s creativity. MassivelyOP’s MJ is doing the latter today and giving away goody codes while she’s doing it.

Everything you need to know about Neverwinter’s guild strongholds

It’s a good time to be a guild in Neverwinter. That’s because on August 11th, every guild — no matter how large or small — will get their own massive zone to adventure and build a base of operations in when the game’s seventh free expansion, aptly named Strongholds, releases. Just how massive is massive? When Executive Producer Rob Overmeyer [...]

Guild Wars 2 is up, WildStar is down in NCsoft’s 2015 Q2 financial report
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 1:00 pm
NCsoft has published its second quarter 2015 financial report, and it’s basically a repeat of quarter one. The company attributes its quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year boosts primarily to Blade & Soul’s “strong performance” in East Asia and momentum in Taiwan as well as the Lineage series’ continued dominance. Western sales for the company rose slightly over last quarter but are down year-over-year, [...]

Blizzard’s long-time community manager, Bashiok (known in the earlier days as Drysc), is leaving the studio after more than a decade or wrangling the World of Warcraft forums.

EverQuest II’s prog server isn’t as fun as the real thing
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 12:00 pm
I’ve been playing the crap out of EverQuest II for the past week. Funnily enough, the vast majority of said playtime hasn’t been on the new progression servers. I hit Stormhold hard when it launched last week, and I got multiple characters up to level 10ish and firmly ensconced in a post-Isle of Refuge quest line or two. And then I realized [...]

Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 11:30 am

He's an entrepreneur who recently joined the wave of investors getting in on the eSports game: His app, Skillz, allows mobile-gaming fans to win real money while playing some of their favorite titles. That's right, mobile eSports. From smartphones to dedicated eSports arenas, Paradise knows why professional gaming is a booming market and he explains it all in a straightforward, money-focused manner. If you've ever looked at eSports and wondered, "Why?" Paradise might have your answer.

'Super Smash Bros.' gets tournament modes and YouTube replays
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 11:50 am

Nintendo isn't done with the 3DS and Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros. just yet. The company has released an update today which adds tournament modes and the ability to post video replays to YouTube. Both features were teased just before E3, but we weren't expecting a slew of new character outfits and stages to go along with them. Nintendo is offering the Hyrule Castle and Peach's Castle arenas from the original Super Smash Bros. on N64, priced at $1.99 per platform or $2.99 across both. They're joined by a deluge of Mii fighter costumes, including King K. Rool from Donkey Kong, Chrom from Fire Emblem: Awakening and Lloyd Irving from Tales of Symphonia. All eight are available for $0.75 or $1.15 across both 3DS and Wii U. Alternatively, you can get everything as a bundle for $9.98 or $15.18 on both Nintendo systems. One last thing: there's a K.K. Slider Mii Fighter costume from Animal Crossing too. It's free to download and looks darn cute.
