It was only a matter of time.The big stumbling block to producing Azbel Engineering Complexes is simply capital. ISK to buy the blueprint and then ISK to buy the materials to build one. Any high sec NPC station or properly equipped Raitaru can build


Wot I Think: Bucket Detective
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 February 2017, 2:00 pm
How much of yourself would you sacrifice to create a literary masterpiece? Bucket Detective [official site], the new game from the creator of The Static Speaks My Name, is not interested in the answer to that question. Instead, it asks what you, in the role of forty-one year old man David Davids, will give up […]


Uurnog is a musical platformer from Knytt creator
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 February 2017, 3:21 pm
I know an ‘Uurnog’ sounds like some gargantuan beast from Norse legend, but it’s not. Uurnog [official site] is really a newly announced, synthy, block-grabbing platformer from yer man Nifflas, aka Niklas Nygren, the creator of the Knytt series and NightSky among others. The aim in this one is to explore the world and “steal […]

At Loose Ends on the Fantasy Front
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 February 2017, 2:15 pm
I seem to have fallen off the fantasy MMORPG wagon once again.  This seems to happen every so often. I stopped playing WoW a couple months after the Legion expansion hit.  My Winter foray into EverQuest II kept my interest for about a month,

Leaderboard: If you solo in MMORPGs, why?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 February 2017, 2:00 pm
Solo players in MMORPGs are a strange case, chiefly because they are treated like an outlier when they aren't. The fact is that almost everyone solos at one time or another -- yes, even in classic MMORPGs -- and the vast majority of people apparently prefer to solo more than not solo, even if they also want to group. Or [...]

Eternal Crusade makes loadouts more flexible with widespread balance changes
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 February 2017, 2:30 pm
It's been a bit quieter than normal on the Eternal Crusade front this month, but that was due to a large-scale rebalancing patch being in heavy testing. That patch is up for testing now for players, with the expectation of going live soon. And it's a big one, altering the fundamental way that you play the game with more loadout [...]

Riders of Icarus offers compensation for unscheduled maintenance
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 February 2017, 3:00 pm
Due to a block of unscheduled maintenance yesterday, Riders of Icarus is handing out packs of goodies as a peace offering for those affected. The four-hour downtime was necessary to fix some issues with an inventory bug and missing items. For this relatively minor inconvenience, Nexon is giving all players 100 Elluns -- cash shop currency -- for free. Additionally, [...]

Blizzard will no longer support your old Windows Vista PC
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 February 2017, 1:45 pm

Blizzard is legendary for supporting games well after they've left store shelves. Diablo II, for instance, got a patch last June, 16 years after the action RPG shipped. However, even a committed developer has its limits. The company has announced plans to end support for both Windows XP and Windows Vista across several games, including Diablo III, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, StarCraft II and World of Warcraft. This will be a "staggered process," but it's a hard cutoff once a given title loses support -- it won't run until you upgrade.

The Alienware 13 gets better with VR and impressive battery life
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 February 2017, 2:20 pm

Gaming laptops used to be an outlier in the world of portable computing. When the rest of the market was focused on extending battery life, gaming laptops doubled down on raw power and thick frames designed for better airflow. Trying to find a small gaming machine that didn't sacrifice power for portability was a fool's errand. Today, things are different. Gaming laptops can be thin, have enough battery life to survive a plane flight, and double as a productivity and entertainment machine with few compromises. The best recent example of this to cross my desk is the Alienware 13, a small, powerful gaming laptop that does almost everything right.




Gamer Seeks New Home
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 February 2017, 3:04 pm
Gamer looking for new home – not the kind you live in. I am doing just fine along those fronts. More like a new home game.  There was a time, back when level 60 was the level cap in World of Warcraft (WOW), that 40 of us would get together to run Molten Core.  In...

Everything wrong with For Honor
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 February 2017, 12:00 pm
The menage-a-trois of murder and mayhem that is For Honor [official site] does a lot of things very well. You can be down to your last sliver of health, limping across a bridge like a deflated balloon and you still might manage to grab a giant knight in panic and throw him off the ledge. […]


Half-Life 2: Episode 3 creator reflects on reception, one year after release
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 February 2017, 1:30 pm
Half-Life 2: Episode 3 [official site] came out one year ago and I never even noticed. It wasn’t an official release from Valve, for well-known reasons, but instead a player-made mod. Yet surprisingly, Episode 3: The Closure is not a fastidiously faithful extension of Valve’s world by super-serious fans. Instead, it plays fast and loose […]
