WildStar promises ‘exciting features’ and new content in 2017
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 10:00 am
WildStar is “rocketing” into 2017, declares a new dev blog from Carbine’s clearly indefatigable Chad “Pappylicious” Moore today. After recapping last month’s Redmoon Mutiny patch and 2016 in general — with its Steam launch, tutorial revamp, Destination Arcterra, Vault of the Archon, Heroes Evolved, and Redmoon series — he vows, “We’ve made some great strides this year on both fronts, but [...]

China is cracking down on MMORPG lockbox vendors
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 10:30 am
Violently authoritarian government regulates nasty video gaming monetization exploit, and gamers are cheering? Yep, China is cracking down on lockboxes. A notice from the creepy Ministry of Cultural Information announces that online game operators are required to, in a nutshell, stick to true randomness in lockboxes, communicate what’s in them, publish stats, and provide alternate routes of acquiring what’s in them, as well [...]

Are you eagerly anticipating the day that Dragon Quest X graces the shores of North America? Well, too bad; that’s not the announcement we’ve got for you today. But you can at least slightly assuage your need for multiplayer Dragon Quest gameplay with the upcoming Dragon Quest Heroes II, launching for the PlayStation 4 on April 25th, 2017. It’s not [...]

The Crown Season 1 Review
Posted by A Green Mushroom [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 10:00 am

The Crown is the latest Netflix Original that my wife and I checked out and we simply love it.  It's a show about Queen Elizabeth and Season 1 is all about her transition to Queen when her father dies.

It deals with British monarchy, has a fantastic cast, and is really good drama.  I don't know how to sell it though.  I'm having a lot of trouble thinking of a way to explain why I like it.

I don't watch a lot of straight up dramas.  I guess this isn't quite that, since it is a historical piece and seems to be historically accurate.  Maybe part of the appeal is being an American and just not having a Monarchy.  It seems so foreign and interesting.

But part of it is just that the cast, setting, and plot are great.

My only complaint is that there's only one season so far!  We finished it and immediately wanted more!

If anything above sounds interesting you should most definitely check it out.


Realpolitiks is a 21st century grand strategy game
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 8:12 am
The trailer for Realpolitiks [official site] is spectacular, in the way that someone stepping on a rake and then falling into a pond is a spectacle. The game itself looks like one of those maps and graphs things that I love, with its focus on politics in the modern world, but the trailer doesn’t spend […]


ModDB’s Mod of the Year awards voting is open
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 8:26 am
Mods used to be my thing. I worked on mods, made mods, wrote about mods, spent all my time trawling terrible personal websites for more mods. Now my engagement with them extends no further than browsing the occasional Steam Workshop and poking around at ModDB. The latter is now running their annual Mod of the […]


Explore a glitchworld in Deios II: Deidia, now out
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 8:36 am
A few months back, I was pleased and puzzled wandering the glitchy caverns of Deios II: Deidia [Itch page] in a demo. It’s a beautiful explore-o-puzzle-platformer with dramatic landscapes, pleasant noises, and, ah, something about being inside a computer and manipulating glitches that I didn’t quite grasp because I’m a dolt. If you’re less foolish […]


Hunger Dungeon is a pixel art MOBA, out now
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 8:58 am
It doesn’t matter how many guides to League of Legends and Dota 2 I read, or how helpful the commentary supposedly is, I can’t fathom what’s happening most of the time when spectating fights in those games. All the wizards are darting about casting swoosh effects and rays of light and an offscreen crowd is […]


Interview: ArcheAge 3.0 Revelation, fresh start servers, and the cash shop
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 9:00 am
ArcheAge’s big new 3.0 update is launching this week, and some big changes are happening with Revelation. And with big changes come questions, questions about exactly what to expect when the servers come back up… including when the servers will come back up! We already learned quite a bit about the new races and regions at DragonCon. To help answer the [...]

The Daily Grind: What cosmetic options for your characters does your favorite MMORPG lack?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 8:00 am
You know what games need? Piercings. More piercings in general. Why can I not have any piercings beyond my ears in Final Fantasy XIV? Why is it that I only have a handful of piercing options in World of Warcraft? I’m not saying every character needs them, but they’re a great way to add visual flair to a character. But [...]

Doom adds AI bots and demonic ballsport
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 6:00 am
From the author who brought you such cutting insights as “Whaaat? id Software released a game without deathmatch?” comes the shocking follow-up “Huuuh? It didn’t have bots either?” Doom [official site] now has bots, which I suppose means it hasn’t had bots the past seven months. ‘Update 5’ launched yesterday afternoon, boshing in AI bots […]


HEVN is a place off-Earth in this immersive sim
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 December 2016, 6:08 am
I spend a lot of my time wandering around space stations and off-world colonies. They’re usually deserted, save for some infected former-people or an AI with some disturbing ideas about just what it should do with that sentience it found between the sofa cushions of its code. This year, I particularly enjoyed Event[0]‘s unusual take […]

Which TV show has the most deaths: Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead?

Ever wondered what is the bloodiest show on TV? Which TV show has killed without prejudice, shuffling people off to their mortal coil faster than you can say ‘Hey, who was that guy?’ Well, obviously The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones top the list
