League of Legends unveils A New Dawn cinematic
Posted by Massively [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 July 2014, 8:00 pm

Filed under: , , , , , , ,

In this cinematic, people hurt each other, with no attempts to connect any of that to a larger theme.
Did you know that a game of League of Legends involves your team fighting another team? It's true! And you can watch a dramatized version of exactly that in the game's latest cinematic trailer, A New Dawn, embedded just past the cut. Spoiler warning: There is blood, people die, and it would all be very dramatic if not for the fact that most of them will respawn in the not-too-distant future.

Want a peek behind the scenes? You can get more than that; Riot Games has also released a full making-of featurette that shows exactly how the newest cinematic went from concept to completion. And you can also check that out past the cut. Consider it the bonus feature.

    The Stream Team: Returning to your roots in WildStar
    Even though she was even closer than ever to her ultimate goal of housing in WildStar, Massively's MJ just couldn't take it anymore! She had to start over so she could choose the Aurin starting area instead. The more she leveled, the more it nagged at her that she abandoned her own people to hang out with those humans. So she's gone back to make it all right. Join us live at 7:30 p.m. to see if the switch was worth it!

    Game: WildStar
    Host: MJ Guthrie
    Date: Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014
    Time: 7:30 p.m. EDT

      It's time for our second edition of Global Chat, the column that scours the blogosphere (or blogorama if you prefer) for engaging insights, intelligent essays, and whoopie cushion goofiness. We had a good response to our first column, so I'm glad you all want to hear more about what bloggers are saying regarding MMOs!

      In this week's edition, we'll look at Warhammer Online's fatal flaw, adventure through Neverwinter's foundry missions, and speculate on the status of a certain Norrathian sandpark. Remember that it's not all doom and WAAAGH! in this community; it's excitement and cherished outings as well!

        Practical Problems
        Posted by Articles [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 July 2014, 5:23 pm

        "How to get your significant other/older relative/etc to play a game" is a pretty common topic in gaming circles. And we have all sorts of advice in various threads about what games are the best gateway games and how to go about leading them down the garden path from there. However, we rarely talk about a real dragon that's snoozing away in the middle of the living room: the person's hardware.

        An acquaintance I ran into walking the dog just hit my sore spot. He's upset because he can't get his girlfriend interested in playing games. He's tried several and gotten nowhere fast. He topped off his litany with a lament that she wouldn't even play Minecraft with him.

        He's a PC gamer, which makes things both easier and harder. Easier because you don't have to convince the significant other to buy yet another piece of expensive hardware and all its trimmings to get them playing. However, that doesn't let you off the hook the way you think it might.

        This became clear when I asked him a simple question. What were the specs of her computer?

        Let's all dye our armor black in The Elder Scrolls Online

        ESO
        When The Elder Scrolls Online's third patch arrives next month, players will be bombarded with customization options, says a new developer blog on the official website. ZeniMax outlines its plans for armor dyes, which come in over 200 colors in accordance with the "artistic scheme" of the game, including rare iridescent shades. Just wanna dye everything black to show what a badass you are? You're in luck; in ESO, unlike many other MMOs, black will be a snap to obtain. In fact, dyes unlock as players complete specific achievements in a variety of gameplay modes from PvP to questing to crafting.

        The studio will also shower guild leaders with new guild ranks to play with, new heraldry for use on guild tabards, and new traders that guilds can rent to vend guild goods to the public.

        General: Preview - Il-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad
        Posted by MMORPG.COM News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 July 2014, 4:16 pm

        Preview - Il-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad

        MMOs are among the most intimidating genres for entry-level gamers, second only perhaps, to flight simulators. Mash the two concepts together and you've got one heckuva scary-sounding game--well, not really, but that's the impression many people have--one the fanatic flyboys at 1C Game Studios are hoping to dispel with their new-player-focused flight sim, Il-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad.

        General: 5 MMOs to Play with Non-MMO Players

        5 MMOs to Play with Non-MMO Players

        By design, MMOs are more fun to play with your friends. Most of them encourage or even require grouping for a lot of the best and most rewarding content, which necessitates either being social in the game world, or coming into the experience with a pre-determined group of friends to play with. Sometimes though, it can be hard to find people. Whatever the case may be, every MMO player wishes X friend would play in their favorite virtual worlds with them.

        Release 8 - Good Old Ultraviolance

        I rolled into Austin beneath dark and water-laden skies last week to see what the guys at Portalarium were cooking up for Release 8 of their Shroud of the Avatar. Thunder rocked the sky as I stepped from my truck and turned to see lightning striking across the menacingly named Greystone Building. The drama of the moment seems appropriate in hindsight, because I've now seen what the team has planned for their next release.

        Guild Wars 2: The Importance of the Guild Hall

        The Importance of the Guild Hall

        Most players in an MMO band together to form guilds. Members of a guild can call upon one another for help, or to join in on a tough dungeon. I've made a lot of friends playing in guilds over the years, in several different MMOs. There's one game that really made the guild experience feel important, and that was the original Guild Wars, which had a nice feature called the guild hall... a feature that Guild Wars 2 is sadly missing.

        The Wrong Way to Do Free to Play

        Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade and the developers' decision to limit free players to the deliberately weaker Ork Boyz is a troubling precedent in the freemium game space. It's not unheard of for some games to limit your race choice based upon how much you are or aren't paying. This is the situation in the upcoming PvP-oriented game, and it's concerning.
