Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 May 2016, 4:30 pm
It’s not every day that an MMO gets enough popularity and promotion to warrant a TV spot, so you’d be forgiven if you did a double-take at seeing Black Desert suddenly pop up during your favorite shows. A new 30-second TV commercial for the game is out, driving across the point that Black Desert is really, really pretty. Also it has [...]

Hyperspace Beacon: SWTOR’s heist-themed ‘Profit and Plunder’ chapter stole the show, literally
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 May 2016, 5:00 pm
I believe there is only one word to describe Chapter 13 for Knights of the Fallen Empire: cute. For the six chapters prior to this one, I’ve been walking around with a perpetual scowl on my face. The story has been so serious: Valkorion complaining that I need to follow him better, Theron Shan getting no sleep, his mother arguing [...]

Daybreak scrambles new servers after DC Universe Online’s huge Xbox One launch
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 May 2016, 1:30 pm
Here’s a sentence I never thought I’d be typing: DC Universe Online might actually be too successful for its own good. Since the game’s launch on Xbox One last week, Daybreak has worked to bring online enough servers to meet the new demand. The servers were down this morning for maintenance “to upgrade server capacity” following several rounds of maintenance over the [...]

Jukebox Heroes: City of Heroes’ soundtrack
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 May 2016, 2:00 pm
In the history of MMORPGs, City of Heroes might well go down as having one of the most passionate communities in the genre. People didn’t just like or love this game, they lived it and rallied to defend it when it was taken down. And even four years after its premature conclusion, the spirit of City of Heroes soars in the [...]

'Dishonored 2' leaves the shadows on November 11th
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 May 2016, 2:57 pm

Dishonored 2 will launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 11th, giving fans another taste of supernatural assassination. The sequel was first unveiled at Bethesda's E3 press conference last year, along with a tentative "Spring 2016" release window. Clearly, that date hasn't panned out. Little is known about the game, other than it's set in the city of Karnaca and features two playable characters -- Dishonored hero Corvo Attano and Empress Emily Kaldwin. As before, you'll be able to choose how you tackle each foe, focusing on stealth or a more 'guns blazing' approach.

Crowfall’s castle siege video is appropriately brutal
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 May 2016, 12:30 pm
Crowfall’s latest Siege Perilous footage is brief, but it digs into the flashier parts of castle sieges, with catapults loosing their missiles, explosions knocking people off walls (and those walls crumbling to the ground), and foot soldiers and horsemen breaching the gates. Just keep in mind, it’s still deep in alpha. “In Pre-Alpha 2.0: Siege Perilous, participants split off as [...]
