Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2015, 3:30 pm
The final update for Final Fantasy XI is due out in November, but there’s life in the game yet before that happens, and there are many ways to respect the past and say farewell to Vana’diel. September’s update will bring with it new high-end battlefields that allow players to face off against the tag-team of Ultima and Omega along with [...]

Shroud of the Avatar posts Release 21 features and instructions
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2015, 4:00 pm
The bright side of Shroud of the Avatar being in a test state is that sometimes whole systems can be rewritten as just part of the process. Case in point: With the newest release for the game, the entire progression system is being changed to an on-use system. This makes logical sense (you get better at hitting things with a [...]

Guild Wars 2’s PAX reveal leaks early, and it’s a big deal
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2015, 4:07 pm
Guild Wars 2 hasn’t had much luck with its expansion reveal pace lately between dataminers and leaks, and this afternoon, that bad luck continues. A tweet from IGN, apparently entrusted exclusively with the news, blabbed some pretty big Heart of Thorns information, along with a trailer, which we’re going to hide behind spoiler code for those of you who’d like [...]

ArcheAge launching in China next month
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2015, 5:00 pm
After a couple of delays, it looks as though China will finally be able to join the ArcheAge club in less than two weeks. Tencent announced that ArcheAge will go live in the country on September 8th. The Chinese version soft-launched earlier this month with a no-wipe state, but any reason for a celebration, right? Chinese idol group SNH48 has [...]

'Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5': something new, something borrowed
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2015, 4:00 pm

"It's like making a new Star Wars movie," says Patrick Dwyer, lead designer on developer Robomodo's upcoming Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. "The originals are great and then the rest weren't as good." He's referring, of course, to the high bar set by the first four games in the storied extreme sports franchise as compared to the middling releases that followed. The idea, as Dwyer explains it, is to treat anything that released past 2002's Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 as if it never existed. And that's including the horrible pair of plastic skateboard peripheral-based games he worked on: Tony Hawk Ride and its follow up, Shred.

'Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5' was designed with YouTube in mind
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2015, 4:30 pm

Secrets have always been a big part of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. However, when players get stuck trying to find Easter eggs in any game now, they don't turn to glossy strategy guides like they did in the 1990s and early 2000s -- they open Twitch or YouTube on their smartphone. Developer Robomodo had this in mind when creating Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. Lead designer Patrick Dwyer says that his team's tucked away the hidden skateboarding DVD -- a series staple -- pretty well this time around and that's a direct result of how the community responded when the studio released Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD back in 2012. "The day it came out there were videos of how to beat all of our missions," he says. "How's that possible? It's weird hiding stuff knowing that."

ARK’s upcoming additions include a bowling ball dino and angry bird
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2015, 2:30 pm
Just because a dinosaur is roly poly doesn’t mean it isn’t a force to be reckoned with. ARK: Survival Evolved’s latest addition is the Doedicurus, an herbivore that can literally roll itself (and practically its rider) into a nearly indestructible armored ball able to plow through enemies like they were bowling pins, making it a fun mount for exploration. Get [...]

Star Trek Online: Heading for a New Dawn
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2015, 12:30 pm
The last major arc in Star Trek Online meant saying goodbye to the Iconican threat that had been looming in the background of the game more or less forever. Every enemy race, ever dangerous scheme, every stubbed toe led back to the Iconicans. Most stubbed toes, anyhow. So now that the Iconicans are being consigned to the trash can of [...]

Perfect Ten: Amazing MMO cosplay
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2015, 1:00 pm
I have nothing but deep respect for cosplayers because on two levels they are performing activities that I cannot. First of all, they put together incredible outfits that must take hours and hours of painstaking research and skill (not to mention money!) to assemble. And second, they go out in public and subject themselves to a nonstop barrage of stares [...]

Imperial City Gates

I've been playing Imperial City on the PTS and been watching others play it on HitBox / Twitch. I know I say this with every expansion / update that Zenimax releases but holy Meridia this DLC is epic. The boss fights, the loot, the Tel Var system, and so many more incredibly awesome additions to the game. Except, one thing still bugs me, and that's what I'm going to focus on this week.
