The Daily Grind: Where do you stand on depictions of animal cruelty in MMORPGs?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 March 2017, 8:00 am
Last week, when Guild Wars 2 revealed its latest minipet, there was a minor squabble on the forums as some players objected to it. The minipet depicts a fish flopping around gasping for air, like, y'know, dying fish do. Worth pointing out here is that this fish doesn't die; it just follows you around suffocating eternally because minipets are magic. [...]

I'm kind of a bad CEO. I haven't looked at Corp assets in forever but for whatever reason I checked them last night. And saw that we had assets in what looked like a couple hundred or so stations. What!? I had forgotten that assets of biomassed characters


The Daily Grind: Do you like the idea of limited-time MMOs?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 March 2017, 8:00 am
One of the things that I find neat about games like Rend, Crowfall, and Chronicles of Elyria is that all of these games are by their very nature meant to be short-term affairs. The game only lasts so long. In some cases it's a scheduled thing, in other cases it's more an organic result, but all of them wind up [...]

When you take the best screenshot in the world and want to impress your friends, do you find that you end up exaggerating a tiny bit? Perhaps with wide-flung arm motions and tall tales of shutter speed and multiple lenses? Reader Matthew dishes up a boast for us from Elder Scrolls Online: "This screenshot amuses me for two reasons.

Final Fantasy XIV walks players through NA data center relocation

A new North American data center has been in the works for Final Fantasy XIV for years now, and in mid-May, Square Enix is planning to flip the switch. Hopefully, this will decrease latency to those accessing the game in the region and offer improved services. The studio walked players through the switchover, which will require up to 48 hours of [...]

The Black Death takes 'drastic action' to shore up early access
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 March 2017, 2:00 pm
"Back in November 2016, we were seven months into early access, and it was clear to us the game wasn’t in the state we wanted it to be in. We needed to take some drastic action." This confession comes from the latest Black Death dev blog, which was penned to bring fans up to speed on the plans for this [...]

H1Z1's PvP side is finally getting some much-needed love (sorry, slight dig at Daybreak's preferential treatment of King of the Kill). The devs posted a new diary this week to talk about the three major projects that the team is tackling this month. With 64% of players polled telling the studio that game optimization is "extremely important," Daybreak's engineers are [...]

'NBA Jam' creator talks about Midway's little-known history
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 March 2017, 7:57 pm

If you hung around arcades in the 1990s, you were likely extremely familiar with Midway sports games like NBA Jam and NFL Blitz. Apparently, though, even these classics have a few secrets left. Former Midway design lead Mark Turmell has participated in a Reddit AMA where he revealed a handful of surprises about Midway games. For instance, he confirmed that pre-release versions of NBA Jam did have Michael Jordan -- the developers had to yank him out just weeks before launch due to his Nike deal. In fact, there were custom editions given to Jordan, Ken Griffey and Gary Payton that put each of them in the game.

'StarCraft: Remastered' upgrades a real-time strategy classic
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 March 2017, 1:56 pm

Blizzard is legendary for keeping old games alive, but it's going the extra mile this time around. The studio has unveiled StarCraft: Remastered, an overhaul that drags the 1998 real-time strategy game (including the Brood War expansion) into the modern era. It's getting the obligatory fresh coat of paint, including higher-resolution graphics (with support for 4K resolution), improved audio and support for Blizzard's current game launcher and multiplayer network. However, the team is also using this as an excuse to 'fix' the game by adding content and features you take for granted. There will be reasons to play even if you've played the classic title to death.

The best games of my lifetime, director’s commentary

On Friday I shared a list of my favourite games from each year of my lifetime. Here, in short, is my reasoning for each pick. The first thing here, as the introduction suggests, is a correction. My headline here should really be “my favourite games released in every year of my lifetime”, rather than the […]
