That time when Riders of Icarus added a level 50 dungeon to a level 40 game
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 December 2016, 4:00 pm
Here’s a fun experiment that Riders of Icarus recently performed: Insert a level 50 dungeon with highly desirable rewards into a game with a level cap of 40 and see what happens. As you might expect, you’re going to end up with players throwing themselves into the souped-up meat grinder again in again in the hopes of obtaining that special [...]

Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 December 2016, 5:00 pm
After looking for Steam greenlight approval earlier this year, Dark Eden has clinched it and arrived to dwell on the digital platform as one of Valve’s latest free-to-play MMORPG offerings. Dark Eden is a very long-running MMO that dates back to 1997 and a look that puts it in good company with the original Diablo. Other than its longevity, Dark [...]

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 December 2016, 2:00 pm
We sent Edwin Evans-Thirwell into the field to see Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] and he came back to us with a report about the good, the bad and the ugly of the game, and thoughts on the loneliness of the long distance killer. Sniper rifles are ubiquitous in video games, but I’m not […]

Behold The Kickmen adds ‘Speedball’ mode
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 December 2016, 11:50 am
It’s not officially called Speedball mode because that might cause upsets down the line, but Dan Marshall’s Behold the Kickmen [official site] now has a menu switch that turns it from a highly accurate football simulation into a highly accurate grim futuresport simulation. I say “highly accurate” with tongue in cheek as Kickmen is the […]

SWTOR Knights of the Eternal Throne launches today; we chat with BioWare
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 December 2016, 12:00 pm
Last year, the developers of Star Wars the Old Republic changed the focus of the game. Instead of continuing to make Knights of the Old Republic the MMORPG, BioWare decided to place heavy focus on its single-player aspects when it launched Knights of the Fallen Empire. Today, the next expansion, Knights of the Eternal Throne, officially launches and asks the question: Why [...]

Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 December 2016, 12:20 pm
Bethsoft released a brand-new trailer for The Elder Scrolls Online last night at The Game Awards, this one talking up One Tamriel’s launch and the positive reception gamers gave the new level-scaling mechanics. It’s not going to surprise MMORPG gamers already familiar with the game, but it does show off some beautiful gameplay, including riding, spell animations, and mass combat. [...]

LawBreakers releases new trailer, plans 2017 beta test
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 December 2016, 12:40 pm
LawBreakers has been super quiet all fall following Boss Key’s announcement that it planned to dig back into development based on the feedback from the summer’s alpha test. But the quiet is coming to an end, as last night’s Game Awards coaxed a brand-new trailer out of the game and CliffyB. The video teases new maps, new modes, and new roles, [...]

WoW Factor: Looking forward to World of Warcraft 7.2
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 December 2016, 1:00 pm
It’s been a little while, friends, but that happens. Last time I was making bets about what we’d see for World of Warcraft at BlizzCon, and as it happens I came up within a pretty solid margin of error. Since then, it’s been a pretty straightforward few weeks of plugging away at the test server whilst punching at various enemies [...]

Hero’s Song adds dungeon boss encounters, friends list, and roadways
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 December 2016, 1:30 pm
It’s always important to keep in mind that early access is quite often just an alpha in need of a great amount of construction and experimentation. As Hero’s Song barrels through its early access period, the team is busy pushing out patches to flesh out the content and features of this fantasy title. Yesterday Update 6 landed on the servers, [...]
