Pokemon Go: Building bridges, crashing cars, and whitehat hacking
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 July 2016, 10:30 am
I almost start to worry about Pokemon Go when we have only a few stories to report and not so many that I am culling them! A 19-year-old in Australia apparently crashed his car into a school classroom — a Catholic college in Melbourne that was mercifully empty at the time. Why is this relevant? He was playing Pokemon Go [...]

Hearthstone’s Next Adventure: One Night In Karazhan
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 July 2016, 8:35 am
“One night in Karazhan makes a hard man humble!” Murray Head almost sang in 1982. “Not much between despair and ecstasy.” Though it’d be another dozen years before Warcraft first came out, and yet another decade before Hearthstone [official site], clearly he knew. “One night in Karazhan and the tough guys tumble / Can’t be […]

Summer Hiatus
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 July 2016, 8:59 am
I've been on a short hiatus the past few months, both here on Eveoganda and in-game. This was not on purpose at first, but it eventually became a purposeful thing. This is the longest period of time I've taken away from the blog and the game since early

Mark Kern to Ember followers: ‘I feel a profound sense of responsibility for what happened to Firefall’
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 July 2016, 9:00 am
In the wake of the apparent complete emptying of the Red 5 Studios offices this week, former Firefall founder Mark Kern is forging ahead on his own reimagining of the game with a new title called Ember. A bit of context: Kern is a decidedly controversial (his word) figure to MMORPG genre veterans, to the point that when his name [...]

Early this morning, Blizzard formally announced Hearthstone’s next adventure: One Night in Karazhan. Yep, tuggin’ on the ol’ WoW nostalgia heartstrings!

World of Warcraft’s new action camera causes motion sickness in some players

An experimental action camera mode added in World of Warcraft’s last patch gave players a little more than they bargained for, as it has apparently triggered motion sickness among some of its viewers. Blizzard noted that the camera mode is “unfinished” but that some players had unknowingly activated it and suffered ill effects from it. As a result, the studio [...]

Sony's 'Driveclub VR' is a PlayStation VR launch title
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 July 2016, 9:14 am

Sony will release a virtual reality version of Driveclub just in time for the launch of its upcoming PlayStation VR platform on October 13th. Driveclub VR will feature "brand new tracks" including a city track (pictured above) and let players view vehicles from multiple angles while they trade paint. Sony revealed the news in a blog post (which was subsequently pulled, so it was possibly published too early). Interestingly, other details were tweeted by Paul "Rushy" Rustchynsky, a developer for Codemasters.

S1E24 - Star Trek Beyond - “Why Did I Love These Whales So Much?”
Posted by A Green Mushroom [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 July 2016, 10:00 am

Star Trek Beyond
In this episode:
  • Void and Beej discuss their lifelong histories with the Star Trek franchise. Beej was introduced to The Original Series by his father when he was a wee tot, and Void found The Next Generation in syndication, eventually coming to Voyage with his family.
  • Both guys are big fans of the Abrams reboots, and can appreciate how the TV and film franchises are split between the Prime universe and the Kelvin universe. That way both purists are happy, and so are mainstream fans.
  • Regarding Star Trek Beyond, there are lots of spoilers in this cast, but we do tell listeners when they start. You can be sure that the first third to half of the show are spoiler-free, and then we dig in on the new movie.
  • Overall impressions: Star Trek Beyond are beyond positive (heh heh, get it?), and we think the series has hit its stride. We had our origin for the universe in 2009, and Into Darkness was a decent rehash of Wrath of Khan that established this new timeline, and Beyond takes this series into new territory, even beginning 3 years after the last movie ended so as to not overlap with any of The Original Series’ storylines. It’s a full-fledged Star Trek adventure, and while it’s not perfect, it’s fun, and we can’t wait to see it again.

The Flare Path: Bird Sim Blueprint
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 July 2016, 8:00 am
For the last 35 years the makers of serious flight fare have been studiously ignoring the true masters of flight. Thousands of amazing aerodyne types have gone unsimmed. Countless dramatic combat scenarios have been cold-shouldered. Today’s Flare Path is a call for this madness to cease. Below the break I sketch out a sim focused on […]

The Daily Grind: How important are MMORPG playerbase metrics to you?
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 July 2016, 8:00 am
While playing Overwatch with guildies the other night, my husband turned to me with a hypothetical. The guys were speculating on World of Warcraft’s current playerbase size and wanted to know whether all the other sub MMOs combined could touch WoW’s sub numbers. I did my best to answer them — with at least a hundred caveats. Blizzard doesn’t give [...]

Steam's latest weekend sale slashes VR game prices
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 July 2016, 7:28 am

Steam tossed some VR experiences into last month's summer sale, but this time, it's throwing a party exclusively for virtual reality enthusiasts. The gaming platform has just announced a VR weekend sale, where it's selling 175 titles for up to 80 percent off. Sure, the selection isn't as extensive, but don't forget that we've only just begun exploring the world of virtual reality. The games and experiences in the list will work with the the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive, which, if you'll recall, was a collaboration between the Taiwanese company and Steam's creator Valve.

Terraria: Otherworld Gets A Rethink
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 July 2016, 6:11 am
We’ve known that a spin-off from gazillion-selling side-on crafting/fighting affair Terraria was on the cards for quite a while, but seems it ran into some problems. Terraria: Otherworld is set in an alternate dimension from the original, leaned more towards RPG and strategy, and eschewed a pure sandbox structure in favour of a little more […]

Sony's mobile division (sorta) makes a profit
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 July 2016, 5:29 am

Sony's most recent financial report is out and, if you squint, things almost look good for its moribund mobile division. Sony Mobile posted a profit of $4 million, which the company attributed to the fact that it's fired enough people to get its costs to break even. If you want to put a positive spin on things, it looks like a greatly-slimmed down phone business might generate just enough money to keep it going. Given that Sony's had to cover Mobile's losses with PlayStation's gains for the last few years, some executives may be reaching for the champagne.
