WildStar’s devs spill more on F2P transition
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 July 2015, 4:00 pm
The picture of WildStar’s future is slowly starting to emerge from the haze with continuing discussion from Carbine Studios about this fall’s business model shift and major game changes. Last Friday’s studio livestream saw the devs spending nearly the entire time talking about free-to-play and what players can expect when it hits. Among the topics included the always-on sprint, how [...]

'Mega Man' creator wants your help making a game-and-movie combo
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 July 2015, 2:13 pm
Concept art for 'Red Ash' the game

Mighty No. 9 might not even be out the door, but Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune is already looking for your help with a new project -- and this one is considerably more ambitious. His studio has launched crowdfunding for Red Ash, a project that combines both an open world action game (The Indelible Legend) and an anime movie from Studio4ºC (Magicicada). While both will share familiar characters and the theme of treasure hunting in a robot apocalypse, they'll otherwise be set in "parallel worlds" where the producers are free to tell whatever stories they want.

MMO Mechanics: Four inspiring indie developments worth watching
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 July 2015, 12:00 pm
The MMO genre has immense sticking power in terms of tenure, staying relevant to players for decades despite such fluid and rapid development in the larger gaming industry and particularly in relation to online gaming. With such an extensive back catalogue of games in the genre, it’s not surprising to see so many recycled mechanics being employed in new releases [...]

One Shots: Impossible architecture
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 July 2015, 10:00 am
When you construct your buildings out of pixels and polygons, you don’t necessarily have to worry about what’s physically possible and what isn’t, just what looks interesting and believable. I always check out the structures that developers come up with because there are always artistic architectural details that often go unnoticed. Reader Zepheera saw something special in this Dungeons and [...]

The Daily Grind: What’s the worst MMO grind you’ve experienced?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 July 2015, 8:00 am
There was a certain level band in World of Warcraft where my wife and I just resigned ourselves to a lack of useful quests and would just grind elementals in the Blasted Lands whilst listening to comedy routines. (This was before it was almost impossible to finish a zone before leveling past it.) Levels 47-50 in Final Fantasy XIV have [...]

Deconstructing the Groupthink of the Reddit Echo Chamber
Posted by Wolfshead Online [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 July 2015, 8:46 pm
The myth of the Internet is that it is a revolutionary place where the public can have discussions about anything free from the heavy hand of various gatekeepers and censors. Sadly, this utopian vision is more hype than reality. The problem is that as online communities tend to coalesce around various issues, hobbies and pastimes a collective consensus develops. A status quo of opinion becomes entrenched and it becomes difficult for anyone to discuss ideas that challenge that existing consensus. The most passionate members of the community often become moderators and proceed to quash any form of dissent. Dissent can be


Make My MMO: July 4, 2015
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 July 2015, 8:00 pm
This week in MMO crowdfunding, Pathfinder Online introduced mules. No, not your dual-boxed healer or the crafter avatar that you force your kid to level up when he’s done cutting your grass, but actual mules that carry goods and make sad mule faces. Pathfinder’s mules are both designed to help traders move large quantities of goods and to attract gankbox bandits [...]

The Game Archaeologist: The 4th Coming
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 July 2015, 6:00 pm
Over the years that I’ve been writing The Game Archaeologist, I’ve received more than a few requests to cover a game that was completely unknown to me: The 4th Coming. It sounded like one of the lesser MUDs, so I stuck it in the backlog to investigate at some point. Now that I’ve finally come around to looking into this [...]

Pathfinder adds mules, cautions against attacking them
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 July 2015, 4:00 pm
Goblinworks has added mules to Pathfinder Online, according to a new dev blog by designer Lee Hammock. Mules are intended to make long-range travel easier for traders and to spur economic interaction. They’re also intended to be targets for bandits and, interestingly, are “not something every gatherer out in the wood brings along with them every time they go out.” [...]

'Shenmue 3' Kickstarter will offer PS4 copies on disc
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 July 2015, 1:57 pm
You can now get a physical PS4 copy of 'Shenmue 3' on KickstarterIt's safe to say people are excited about Shenmue 3: Just 48 hours after legendary developer Yu Suzuki launched a crowdfunding campaign, the game smashed its $2 million fundraising goal, pulling in more than $4 million, and setting a couple Kickstarter records in the process. So it's clear fans of the series are already happy. But just in case you needed another reason to commit, Suzuki's studio YS Net just posted an update on Kickstarter saying that backers will now have the option of choosing a physical PS4 copy of the game. Previously, the options were: digital copies for PS4 or Windows for $29, or a physical Windows copy for $60. So, PlayStation fans will now also have the option of playing off a disc; there, too, the price will be sixty bucks. If that's the only reason you were previously holding off on backing, you can still do so: The campaign is open through the evening of July 17th, with the game set to arrive in December 2017.
