The fourth and final 100th episode of Star Citizen’s Around the Verse is up — OK, so it’s really 103, right?

First impressions of Nexon’s Riders of Icarus
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 July 2016, 12:00 pm
Earlier this month, the latest addition to Nexon’s perpetually expanding stable of MMORPGs, Riders of Icarus, took wing into its “soft launch,” or open beta, whichever meaningless term you happen to prefer. However soft the launch may be, the fact remains that the game, which largely centers around the taming and training of a variety of mounts, both terrestrial and aerial, [...]

Wisdom of Nym: Why I adore Final Fantasy XIV’s Deep Dungeon
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 July 2016, 1:00 pm
Let me start by getting my biggest beef with the Palace of the Dead out of the way right off: I don’t like the fact that we only have two save slots. One more would make a world of difference and would also be entirely in keeping with the 16-bit look that this addition to Final Fantasy XIV is embracing. [...]

Have You Played… Richard & Alice?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 July 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. No, Richard & Alice [official site] is not some fan fiction about the time Richard Cobbett and Alice O’Connor fought spacecrime together, although now damn I wish it were. It is in fact […]

Happy Friday! Please don’t die in 100 degree heat this weekend playing Pokemon Go, OK? We’d miss you. It’s all over, guys: Someone has already beaten Pokemon Go, at least in North America. You can go back inside now. Of course, he hasn’t caught all the rare ones yet — no one has. Apparently back in 2001, religious leaders in Saudi [...]

Threats against Blizzard Entertainment lead to a Sacramento man’s arrest
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 July 2016, 11:00 am
Maybe you’re upset with the class changes in World of Warcraft. Maybe you’re disappointed with character balance in Overwatch. Maybe you have specific heroes you want to see in Heroes of the Storm who keep getting passed up. There are lots of reasons why you might be upset with Blizzard Entertainment, but odds are that you can probably agree that [...]

NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1060 gives you gaming power on a budget
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 July 2016, 11:00 am

After debuting the fastest high-end and mid-range video cards ever seen, the GTX 1080 and 1070, we expected a lot from NVIDIA's new lower-tier entry, the $249 GeForce GTX 1060. And the stakes were raised even higher after AMD launched the Radeon RX 480, a $200 GPU that's fast enough to power VR headsets (and manage some decent 1440p gaming). NVIDIA claims the GTX 1060 is even faster than the GTX 980, its premium video card from 2014. That says quite a bit about how far we've come in the GPU world: You no longer have to break the bank for a decent amount of gaming muscle.

World of Warcraft drops more pre-Legion lore at SDCC ’16
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 July 2016, 9:30 am
There’s going to be quite a bit of lore in World of Warcraft to lead up to the release of Legion, but not every story is one that players would necessarily experience directly. You’re going to be trying to insert a few pointy bits of metal into Gul’dan’s midsection, not ask him about his life’s story. But you can still [...]

Revelation Online is not going to make this decision easy, as the MMO is wielding six classes that offer a new twist on tired fantasy class tropes. Will you go with the ranged firepower of [...]

Geek to Geek - S1E23 - JRPGs - “I’m pre-ordering games as he talks”
Posted by A Green Mushroom [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 July 2016, 10:00 am

Best of First-half of 2016
In this episode:
  • It’s #JRPGJuly, and you guys know by now that we are both huge fans of roleplaying games! But more than just any RPG, we adore JRPGs. In this episode, we discuss our history of why we prefer the unique genre to the more traditional Western RPG.
  • We discuss what a JRPG is (literally “Japanese Roleplaying Game”)
  • Common mechanics
  • Both of us cut our teeth on the genre with early Final Fantasy games, Pokemon games, and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars on SNES.
  • Additionally, we discuss our current favorites, the standouts from the past we just can’t get go of, and the ones we are most looking forward to in the future!
  • We even go on tangents about how JRPGs influenced our belief systems and personal philosophies! How’s that for geeky?
  • Plus, we talk about two upcoming spiritual successors to Chrono Trigger, and Beej gets so excited he preorders one of them while still recording.
  • (pre-order link)

The Flare Path: Submarine Dreams
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 July 2016, 8:00 am
Subsim.com proprietor Neal Stevens and myself stand on opposite sides of the great dreamer-doer divide. When I see a promising in-development sim struggling for funding or heading in a direction I don’t much like, I sigh and pen a few plaintive words for this column. Neal, on the other hand, contacts the devs, and offers […]
