Record of Lodoss War Online is now playable in the West
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 9:00 pm
Do you ever wish that more imported games would just launch without fanfare? Record of Lodoss War Online has apparently done just that; Gravity Interactive announced its launch in the West last week without fanfare or much flare. Heck, it’s without even much in the way of a fleshed-out site, as the official site is still missing a gallery and [...]

The Stream Team: Starting Season 2 of Guardians of the Galaxy: A Telltale Series
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 3:55 pm
It’s back! The Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series has launched Episode Two, and that means Massively OP’s MJ is back with another round of Choose My Adventure. Where will the story lead? A good part of that depends on the audience, which happens to make all the decisions about what to do and what to say. The fate [...]

Prep for the apocalypse with Escape From Tarkov’s hideouts
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 6:00 pm
Some people seem to want the apocalypse to happen because they have a really sweet underground bunker that is ready for a test drive. For the rest of us, the closest we might get is Escape From Tarkov’s new Hideouts, which will at least entertain us with the fantasy of our own shelter while the world crumbles around us. The [...]

Prevent the Fall adds in a new tutorial and quality of life improvements
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 7:00 pm
It’s nice to know what in the world you’re doing, isn’t it? That can be tricky when you’re starting a new game, but the developers behind the upcoming VR-enabled co-op RPG Prevent the Fall know it’s important. So the game’s latest patch focuses heavily on quality of life improvements and starts with a tutorial, explaining the basics of gameplay and [...]

Revelation Online takes a tour of Ersich Forest
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 8:00 pm
We promise the population of Revelation Online that Ersich Forest is, in fact, a lovely and benevolent area. Sure, it seems nice on the surface, but most players have probably been hard-wired to expect that means the worst. Some horrible fanged nasty is going to kill them there, obviously, that’s what always happens. But not here. Yes, there are monsters, [...]

Worlds Adrift beta trailer demos player-designed islands
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 3:00 pm
If Worlds Adrift isn’t on your radar yet, your radar could very well be broken and need replacing. But here’s a way to get caught up on just what the game is capable of: Bossa Studios is hosting a fan-made trailer by player Synovus stuffed full of footage of what the studio calls “some of the most impressive islands created by the [...]

Neverwinter takes you on a tour of Port Nyanzaru
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 3:30 pm
The eponymous city is obviously the main port of call for players in Neverwinter, but there are other cities worth visiting. The next major update, Tomb of Annihilation, will see players heading to Port Nyanzaru, a very different city from the one Neverwinter’s adventurers are accustomed to experiencing. So why not take a tour of all of the best parts [...]

E3 2017: Hands-on with Ubisoft’s Skull and Bones
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 2:00 pm
I like naval combat in my MMOs. That’s my weakness. Vehicle combat is great, but for some reason, I especially like boats. When I heard there was another pirate multiplayer game being revealed at E3 2017, I knew I’d have to check it out. Fortunately, I’d already been scheduled to check out Ubisoft’s press section of their booth, giving me a [...]

PSA: Don’t get phished in Guild Wars 2
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 2:30 pm
Guild Wars 2 is warning players about a “modest uptick in account thefts related to phishing,” according to a post on the official forums this weekend. ArenaNet’s Gaile Gray writes that the scammers are skipping out-of-game email and running their tricks inside the game itself. “One of the more common phishing attempts today is coming from within the game,” she [...]

E3 2017: Elder Scrolls Online’s Matt Firor on Morrowind, nostalgia, and PvP
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 11:00 am
The Elder Scrolls Online released its first expansion, Morrowind, shortly before E3 2017. MMOs rarely come up with mainstream media, but with Morrowind’s nostalgia power, I heard the name mentioned a few times off the showroom floor. While I’d heard of Morrowind, of course, I didn’t personally get on the Elder Scrolls train until Skyrim — it’s been one of those games making “best of” [...]

Funcom Lead Designer Oscar Lopez Lacalle and Community Manager Jens Erik Vaaler helmed an E3 recap livestream for Conan Exiles on Friday, and if you missed it, it’s worth a quick look now that the E3 hype is dying down. During the convention, Funcom announced big moves for Conan, including a date for its Xbox One launch (August 16th), a [...]

Wisdom of Nym: The Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood early access experience
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 12:00 pm
There have basically been two attitudes throughout the past weekend with Final Fantasy XIV’s early access to Stormblood. Here, we’ll run it like a Tumblr meme; tag yourself appropriately in the comments: “Wow, all of this stuff is really cool!” “A system error occurred during event movement.” I spent Friday and Saturday stuck in the latter, but Sunday I moved [...]

Check out The Crew 2’s gameplay in action
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 12:30 pm
So what’s it going to be like playing The Crew 2? If you said “a lot like playing The Crew,” well… all right, you’re cynical, but you have a point. If you said “drive car around,” you’re even more cynical, and this time you’re only partly right. You will also be driving boats and piloting planes, and you’ll be hopping [...]

SMITE adds Cu Chulainn to its roster and kicks off a Code of Chivalry event
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 1:00 pm
This week’s newest member of the SMITE line-up is Cu Chulainn, the Hound of Ulster. Cu is a rough-and-tumble melee warrior who boasts high crowd control and area DPS. Like the Hulk, you don’t want to get Cu Chulainn mad, because when that happens he goes berserk and sees his stats and abilities improve. Whether you play this new hero [...]

Rockstar has taken out three more Grand Theft Auto cheat mods
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 1:30 pm
Last week, the Grand Theft Auto V/Online community was rocked by the shutdown of OpenIV, a modding tool that’s served the series’ community for almost 10 years, following a cease-and-desist letter Rockstar and Take-Two sent its operators. Rockstar said it wasn’t targeting single-player mods but dealing with what it says was OpenIV’s enabling of “malicious mods that allow harassment of players and interfere [...]

The Daily Grind: Which MMORPG developer would you most like to meet in person?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 8:00 am
Be you press or player, one of the advantages of going in person to a convention (or any other gaming event!) is surely the chance to actually meet and talk to individual developers. You can get a partial read on developers from their written words and even their speech on streams, but nothing beats actually talking one-on-one with a dev, [...]

Surprise! Niantic brought Pokemon Go to E3 2017 and invited members of the gaming press outside the sacred halls of the Los Angeles Convention Center to check out the upcoming raid system at a nearby gym. We were granted not just some juicy details on upcoming changes but a rare chance to interview several key members of the team, including Senior Product [...]

Marvel Heroes cuts console storage cost but denies refunds
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 9:30 am
Here’s an interesting good news/bad news situation for Marvel Heroes Omega console players. Gazillion announced that it is permanently cutting the prices in half for both starter inventory and starter storage upgrades on its console versions. Sounds pretty great, right? The only problem is that if players had already paid full price for these upgrades, they won’t be refunded the [...]

What’s going on over in Dark Age of Camelot land? For that you’ll have to turn to the latest Q&A grab bag with the developers. Among the topics discussed, the devs gave some word about the next patch for the game — and something special that’s coming with it. “We have a 1.123B version coming very soon to Pendragon that [...]

Mark Kern will share Em-8ER’s design vision – for a price
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2017, 10:30 am
Em-8ER, Mark Kern’s attempt at subverting game naming conventions (and also something about giant mechs), is launching its next limited fundraiser on Monday to finance the development of a few more features for the pre-pre-alpha version. The goals include the funding of the creation of a weapon system, more interactive frames, the first little slice of actual gameplay (on an [...]

Were you too busy gaming this week to pay attention to MMO news? Get caught up every Sunday evening with Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review! Botched MMORPG expansion launches are nothing new to veteran MMO gamers, so the roadblock issues of Final Fantasy XIV’s Stormblood this weekend won’t surprise anyone, though I can think of at least one MOP writer frustrated [...]

Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 June 2017, 6:00 pm
There is no question that the early access launch of Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood has been a rough and bumpy ride. At least the team is talking to players, even if it isn’t all good news. Regarding the congested worlds and long queues, Square Enix explained that it has to function this way: “The following worlds have consistently had the [...]
