Meeting corporation IRL

My past couple of days were not spent on EvE for a change. Or not ingame at least. I was in Prague with members of my corporation. Which was super fun. And the week before that I went to Gamescom, which is something I’ve been doing in the past few

Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 August 2016, 9:30 am
Funcom’s second quarter financials for 2016 rolled in over the weekend. Of note, revenues are down 36% compared to the same quarter last year “due to gradual and expected decrease in sales from the current Live Games,” the company says.

Mecha Ace Review
Posted by A Green Mushroom [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 August 2016, 10:00 am

Mecha Ace is the latest interactive fiction that I finished reading.  I haven't read one in awhile, but these are the interactive novels put out by Choice of Games LLC and I've found a bunch over the past few years that I like.

Mecha Ace is all about being a Mech pilot fighting for the rebellion against an evil empire.  Sounds like a fairly standard setup but the actual missions and choices in the novel are fantastic.  I loved this author's work and I need to find out if he's written any other interactive fiction that's been put out through Choice of Games.

I really like finding good ones put out under the Choice of Games label, but honestly the hardest part is finding a good author and then finding their other content.  It gets buried under the general catch all label too often.

Anyway, Mecha Ace is really good, so if you're into interactive fiction or have ever enjoyed a choose your own adventure game you should give it a shot.  You can read/play it on many platforms if you click through here.

The Daily Grind: How long should refund grace periods for video games be?
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 August 2016, 8:00 am
Over the weekend, Redditors began claiming that Valve is intermittently allowing people to request and be granted Steam refunds for No Man’s Sky well past the usual two-hour marker. There are now claims of people with 30, 40, 50 hours in the game getting full refunds, and while I’m not yet convinced the reports are entirely above board, there is a dropoff showing [...]

Fossil Echo Is A Ghibli-Inspired Stunner
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 August 2016, 4:00 am
We’re a bit late to mention Fossil Echo [official site], as it actually came out in July, but it’s still summer outside so it’s still topical and we can still enjoy cooing at its sunny stylings. The platformer is replete with desert beaches, temple ruins reclaimed by deep jungle, icy stone towers, and dazzling midnight […]

I hadn’t been paying too much attention to No Man’s Sky.  However, a bunch of people seemed to be excited about it before it launched… and upset about it when it was delayed… and have jumped onto the bandwagon such that it


Leaderboard: Which gaming genre do you play most often besides MMORPGs?
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 August 2016, 2:00 pm
My earliest PC games were space sims, 4X games, and then, naturally, RPGs — especially sandbox RPGs. MMORPGs seemed like a natural evolution for my inclinations (never mind my weird obsession with roguelikes). But it seems like a lot of MMORPG players come from other corners of the gaming industry entirely. I see a lot of folks whose gateway drugs to [...]

I’ve been playing a lot of Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO as the kids call it) in the last month or so. Trading really has freed up the time I used to spend ratting in Eve. Really, you can’t ask for two games that are more different

Have You Played… Battlefield 1942?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 August 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. We take it for granted now, but in 2002 I was still impressed that Battlefield 1942 was a multiplayer game that let you fly planes and drive tanks and jeeps. I was even […]
