The Elysium WoW emulator community is in total meltdown
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 12:30 pm
The Elysium World of Warcraft private server community is in total meltdown, so popcorn at the ready. Most MMORPG players would probably have never heard of Elysium but for Nostalrius, the WoW emulator that was C&D'd by Blizzard last year and then went on to agitate for official vanilla servers, blowing its momentum after BlizzCon by handing its source code [...]

Devs and players say farewell to Landmark and the last remnants of EverQuest Next
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 1:00 pm
Landmark's servers blinked off for the very last time last night, with our own EverQuest franchise columnist MJ Guthrie there to stream the end. The sandbox hadn't even reached its first birthday after its long-awaited but still hasty launch last year. "Such a waste," former SOE and Daybreak CEO John Smedley remarked on Twitter. "It's tragic to see this game turned [...]

Ship of Heroes posts a Kickstarter countdown on its main page
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 1:30 pm
Whenever we here bring news about a new indie title, there's always at least one person asking in the comments about when the Kickstarter is starting. It's not even cynical at this point, just a predictable eventuality. Of course, usually the answer to that question is unclear, since most teams announce the Kickstarter date around the same time the Kickstarter [...]

Now that they have rescued the necessary engineer to help get The Gravestone functioning again, they are off to meet with Senya. What story will come out of meeting with her and [...]

We may have already known about Overwatch's next hero... for months
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 2:30 pm
The next Overwatch hero is a quadraped Omnic named Anchora, and she appears to be a tank. This isn't a new announcement, though; it's from a leak that's months old. The question is whether or not it's accurate, and at the time of the leak, it certainly didn't seem accurate. Then again, at the time of the leak we also [...]

ARK is abandoning the claiming of abandoned dinos
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 4:00 pm
One way survivors have been able to nab new dinosaurs in ARK: Survival Evolved is by claiming abandoned tames when their ownership timer expires. That mechanic is being itself abandoned: On the game's Reddit forum, Studio WildCard's community manager confirmed that the practice of claiming of abandoned dinos is going away. Now when players leave servers their tamed dinosaurs will [...]

Gunpoint meets Mavis Beacon in Rogue Process
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 3:59 pm
Lop the typing gland off Mavis Beacon, cut a graft slit into Gunpoint, then insert the typing into the window-smashing platform-o-hacking stem and seal the graft with wax, and- dear god, what have you done? Did you think that would work? How do you even think games are made? You big silly. You leave the […]


Stellaris’ New Horizons mod is the best Star Trek game
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 4:00 pm
Everything was in place for the Romulan invasion of the United Federation of Planets. Warbirds screeched out of the shipyards of Romulus and Remus on a direct course for the closest Federation worlds, those belonging to the chilly Andorians. The real goal, of course, was neighbouring Vulcan. This was a symbolic war. As my jade […]

Milo Finally Get Everything He Deserves
Posted by Zen Of Design [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 12:21 pm
It’s been a long time since I posted – frankly, I’ve been a little busy lately. That being said, you know that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to engage in a little Schadenfreude at the Godfather of Gamergate’s world collapsing. In many ways, Milo was the epitome of the nonsense anti-PC “you should be […]

What point and click adventures could learn from hidden object games
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 2:00 pm
This week I’ve been tinkering with a preview build of Thimbleweed Park which is the point and click murder mystery from Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick (them off Maniac Mansion). I used to love playing point and click games when I was little – my siblings and I would play them together over weeks and […]

AMD returns to high-end gaming CPUs with Ryzen 7
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 1:45 pm

AMD has largely ceded the performance processor space to Intel in recent years. You typically get one of its chips inside a budget PC, not an all-out gaming rig. At last, though, you might have reason to get excited: AMD is launching Ryzen 7, a desktop CPU line based on its much-ballyhooed Zen architecture. The key is a dramatic improvement in the number of instructions the chip can handle at once. A Ryzen 7 CPU can do 52 percent more work every cycle than a similarly-clocked predecessor thanks to a newer 14-nanometer manufacturing process, five times the bandwidth and some overdue architectural upgrades. This is AMD's first processor with simultaneous multithreading (Hyper-Threading in Intel speak), so each core can execute two code paths at the same time.

'Overwatch' streamer destroys his in-game imposter
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 2:31 pm

Brian St. James is called Kephrii in the competitive Overwatch scene, and he's known as the highest ranked Widowmaker player in the world. He recently ran into a hacker impersonating his gamer tag and using cheats, but instead of getting mad, the real Kephrii got even. While streaming the match on YouTube, St. James showed off his skills by consistently killing the fake Kephrii, who played Widowmaker, then Tracer (two different character classes), on the opposing team.

'Mass Effect' gets raunchy in its new Cards Against Humanity pack
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 2:52 pm

If your favorite part about Mass Effect is making jokes about the game's wide-array of sexual paring options, you can skip Andromeda -- Cards Against Humanity has announced a limited run Mass Effect expansion. Well, expansion is a bit of an overstatement. The terrible person's favorite card game is selling 14 Mass Effect themed cards for $1 -- and yes, most of them are poking fun at the series history of letting the player hook up with pretty much everyone.

forma.8 has adorable animations and lovely palettes
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 12:00 pm
I don’t know if you remember but a while ago I posted about the lovely little animation touches of Inside. forma.8 [official site] is another game which invites that treatment. It’s a beautiful Metroidvania prospect which uses that sort of flat colour layering that you find in minimalist posters and similar (think WPA posters and […]
