Hector is coming! That’s not a person’s name; it’s the name of an update in Albion Online, so you can spare yourself getting a cake ready and all of that. But there’s still a fair bit to do with the update, since Hector brings the introduction of the game’s Black Market as well as revised Hellgates and Outlands for players [...]

The jury is out on whether or not DOTA 2 actually belongs to Valve
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 May 2017, 7:00 pm
It’s not very interesting to see a big company take knockoff companies to court to argue that the knockoff companies are violating intellectual property. It is, however, quite interesting when the argument of the knockoff companies is that the big company doesn’t actually own said intellectual property at all… and that claim has some actual basis. There’s no question whether [...]

Even superheroes like to look their best. The Ship of Heroes team announced that it just finished updating the game’s graphic engine to Unreal Engine 4.14.3, which will give the devs some shiny new toys to integrate into the upcoming sci-fi MMO.

E-DOF2, Period Basis – The Blood Raider Covenant's Omir Sarikusa has issued a defiant response to the destruction of his organization's Sotiyo-class shipyard by capsuleers of the Imperium coalition on YC119.05.19.

Speaking exclusively to Ret Gloriaxx of the Scope's Galactic Hour, Sarikusa declared the loss of the shipyard "a necessary and holy sacrifice on the path of the Great Truth". Going further, the Blood Raider leader asserted that "our legions sanctified in blood will renew this work, and once more strike down the false and the faithless, even as they squabble amongst themselves". This was apparently a reflection on the internecine combat between the Imperium group and the TEST alliance surrounding the looting of the Sotiyo.

Sarikusa also claimed that "the Sow-Queen squatting atop her throne of base metal showed by her inaction the impotency of her rule, corrupted and thin as her own blood!" This latter remark was evidently a reference to Empress Catiz I of the Amarr Empire. When asked for comment, the Court Chamberlain's Office would only say: "The ravings of a mad heretic are beneath the dignity of the Throne."

For their part, capsuleers have commented adversely as to the capabilities of the Sotiyo's defenses, noting that the lack of a close-in point defense system allowed the Imperium to bring the Sotiyo down with a fleet composed of frigates.

Global Chat: Saying goodbye to The Secret World

With the move to put The Secret World in maintenance mode and shift focus to the rebooted Secret World Legends, one MMO blogger decided that it was time to say goodbye to his stable of characters by logging each of them out in meaningful locations. “It is now clear that The Secret World’s days are numbered,” Tyler of Superior Realities [...]

Warframe developer confirms retro hybrid shooter Keystone
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 May 2017, 1:30 pm
Warframe has been positively kicking ass this past year, doing what MMOs seldom do: continue breaking its own concurrency records four years in. So is Digital Extremes content to just roll around in piles of money? Nope — it’s put together a second team to build another game. It’s called Keystone, and as announced today, it’s a “competitive first-person shooter with [...]

Crowfall explains the logic and breadth of passive powers
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 May 2017, 2:00 pm
It is reasonable to assume that anyone who has spent a bit of time playing MMOs is familiar with the basic concept of passive powers. They’re powers you don’t click to operate, they just… work. But Crowfall is taking the concept a bit further with its passive powers, as players will start with a variety of passives from race, class, [...]

Revelation Online‘s Iceborn update is live in the game today as promised. The big draw is the faction war for level 40+ characters, along with what My.com has dubbed “Inner Demon Trials,” which are not an existential test but are in fact small-group portal dungeons. Yeah, strange demon portals, what could go wrong? “The update introduces a full-scale Guild versus Guild tournament, [...]

It’s been a year since Overwatch launched, and in that time the game has added new heroes, new maps, and several limited-time events of varying popularity.

‘Overwatch’ turns one with more skins for your arsenal
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 May 2017, 2:37 pm

Last week, Blizzard answered the susurrous rising from Overwatch fans wondering whether the studio would celebrate the game's one-year anniversary: Yes, an event was in the works. (And there was much rejoicing.) To commemorate the game's arrival exactly a year ago, and in recognition of its wild critical and commercial success, Overwatch is launching a new event and releasing a Game of the Year edition for $40. But if you need convincing, the game will be free to play this weekend.

Twitch adds video speed controls to slow down that amazing play
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 May 2017, 1:33 pm

Now that Twitch is making a bigger deal out of pre-recorded videos, it's competing more directly with services like YouTube -- and that means adding the kind of playback controls you take for granted elsewhere. Accordingly, the service has introduced a reworked video settings menu that adds speed controls. You can slow all the way down to 0.25X to relive a game-winning moment, or ramp up to 2X if you're skipping through the slow parts.

The Daily Grind: Do you swear by any urban legends in MMORPGs?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 May 2017, 8:00 am
When I first began playing Ultima Online as a newbie way back at launch, I remember watching everyone around me summoning ham with the Create Food spell and then eating it. The myth back then was that having an empty stomach caused everything from magic fizzles to combat whiffs to slowed experience gain. Over the years, multiple developers have examined the [...]

Rockstar Games announced last night that it’s delayed Red Dead Redemption 2 to spring 2018 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, a result of the fact that it’ll be Rockstar’s first rodeo on this generation of consoles and “some extra time is necessary.” “We are very sorry for any disappointment this delay causes, but we are firm believers in delivering [...]
