Check out Ularra, The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind's third and final battleground map
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 March 2017, 2:30 pm
ZeniMax is previewing the third and final battleground coming to The Elder Scrolls Online when Morrowind releases in June: It's called Ularra. Unlike Ald Carac (always bring a knife to a knife fight) and Foyada Quarry (crowd controlling people into hot lava is hilarious), Ularra is set in an abandoned temple to Mehrunes Dagon, exactly nobody's favorite daedric prince, and [...]

Heroes of the Storm introduces Diablo II Amazon, major progression and leveling update
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 March 2017, 4:00 pm
"It's a whole new era for Heroes of the Storm," Blizzard has declared in its new HOTS dev video today. That's because the game is currently in the midst of a month-long test of a huge progression patch the studio is calling Heroes 2.0. Level caps are being nuked; your level cap will now basically be account-wide, and leveling will be [...]

Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition – an elegant remastering, with a few exceptions
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 March 2017, 2:00 pm
Surprise classic RPG remastering attack! Mere weeks after revered 1999 philoso-roleplayer Planescape: Torment [official site] enjoyed a belated spiritual sequel in the over-lored but otherwise strong Torment Tides Of Numenera, it gets itself a modernised re-release too. It’s due out April 11, but I’ve got the thing updating my hard drive’s journal and changing the […]


Ssserpentine platformer Snake Pass releasssed
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 March 2017, 2:18 pm
Most platformers take movement for granted. Sure, it might be tricky to nail precise timings and pull off complex chains but you have move buttons and jump buttons and they do your moving. That’s certainly not the case with Snake Pass [official site], which launched today. Sumo Digital’s platformer gives players a snake to wind, […]

Xbox One's faster, simpler interface is available to everyone
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 March 2017, 2:23 pm

After no small amount of hype, the Xbox One's big spring software refresh is finally rolling out to everyone. The March update centers around a redesigned interface that's designed for speed above all else. It's quicker to perform more than a few tasks, such as finding a group to join. The revamped Guide should be much quicker, too -- it promises faster access to recent apps, background music controls and game recording. A few tweaks are designed with multitasking in mind, such as a brand new achievement tracker and a Cortana rework that puts the voice assistant into an overlay that won't disrupt what you're doing.

Horror MMO 'The Secret World' returns and this time it's free
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 March 2017, 3:20 pm

While horror MMO The Secret World never quite became the next World of Warcraft, its unique supernatural vibe made it a cult hit among MMO fans. The game's publisher, Funcom, plans to relaunch the game as a free-to-play "shared-world action RPG," no doubt hoping to cash in on the original title's recognition while updating the title for a modern audience.

He’s a difficult man to pin down, but we managed to secure a world exclusive interview with the project lead behind The Signal From Tölva [official site], one Jim Rossignol. After months of negotiations he agreed to speak to us, divulging thoughts and feelings about the game that will most likely kill him and all […]

The IT trailer is here and it's chillingly, terrifyingly perfect

The Ongoing Tension Between Solo and Grouping
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 March 2017, 2:15 pm
In which we are reminded that the “group-solo” dynamic in MMORPGs is not settled and likely never will be. I have been thinking about the solo/grouping dynamic a bit after a couple of previous posts regarding World of Warcraft and EVE Online.


Skyforge's PlayStation 4 version is now playable in early access
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 March 2017, 10:00 pm
Skyforge's PlayStation 4 version has officially launched today -- without much hoopla -- into an early access (head start) period for those who picked up the $14.99 pre-register package. If you don't want to shell out for it, you'll be waiting until April 11th for the full freebie experience. Redditors are wading through the server-up process, finding frustration in realizing PS4 is [...]

Funcom reboots The Secret World as Secret World Legends, a 'shared-world action RPG'
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 March 2017, 8:00 am
Raise your hand if you felt trepidation as well as hope when Funcom announced during that last investor call that it was relaunching The Secret World? Fans have been yearning for more TSW conspiracy goodness and system improvements for so long. But the community has definitely feared the game changing away from what makes it so unique; the word "NGE" was [...]

The Daily Grind: What anticipated MMO expansion turned out to be a disappointment?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 March 2017, 9:00 am
It's with a heavy heart that I have to admit that RIFT: Starfall Prophecy kind of let me down. I was really, genuinely looking forward to playing this expansion last fall, especially since I would get in on the ground floor at release. And while there were some great aspects of the release, such as the concept and some of [...]

World of Warcraft implements undocumented item level scaling in patch 7.2
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 March 2017, 9:30 am
The reward scaling in World of Warcraft has always been pretty straightforward. At the start of the expansion, everything at max level is a pretty close match for you; by the end of the expansion, all of that work you put into acquiring better items pays off because every enemy lies dead at your feet. It's how things work. Sure, [...]

Guild Wars 2's Super Adventure Box begins tomorrow... with red weapons, without World 3
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 March 2017, 10:00 am
If you were holding out hope that this year's edition of Guild Wars 2's Super Adventure Box would come with loads of new content... better let go that hope. The patch notes released yesterday reaffirm that the Super Adventure Festival will begin on Thursday, but there's no mention of World 3, which honestly does comport with ArenaNet's longstanding assertions that [...]

Destiny 2 reveals a trailer for its actual trailer
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 March 2017, 10:30 am
Are you ready to just watch a trailer without some warning? We thought not. Clearly, it's a very important decision by Bungie to ensure that the trailer for Destiny 2 has its own trailer, so you can properly ramp up. Although we really should properly have a trailer for this trailer before the final trailer, and so on back along [...]

ArcheAge begins Lantern Festival, ignites currency controversy
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 March 2017, 11:00 am
Over on the ArcheAge Reddit, people are grumpy. No, stay with me; they might have a point here. Trion kicked off an odd sort of promotion Monday in which players can purchase APEX packs and get pretty big additional APEX bonuses for doing so, which players suggest has never happened before, not even when the currency (which is traded in-game [...]
