The Game Archaeologist: Sega’s 10six MMO
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 July 2016, 6:00 pm
If you were to think of Sega and MMOs, chances are the only thing that would come to mind is the Phantasy Star Online franchise. While those are great games (even though we’ll probably never see PSO2 in the west!), there was another MMO that Sega dabbled in during the boom years of the online gaming industry. This game was 10six: [...]

You know how your parents would sometimes outright bribe you to do something you were scared of or hated? Don’t put it past an MMO to apply the same tactics to a playerbase that’s sometimes reluctant to get outside of its comfort zone. To incentivize players to enter into its battlegrounds, WildStar is currently running a Space Chase event that [...]

Shark week is over, you say? That doesn’t matter to MassivelyOP’s MJ! The ocean is a dangerous place in ARK, and MJ needs a new shark friend so she can have some aquatic adventures — and survive! Since the server reset, she doesn’t have any of the scuba equipment or dinos to make the waters safer. That’s where creativity comes [...]

WRUP: What the deal is with airline food edition
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 July 2016, 10:00 am
Hello, readers. Let’s get these out of the way. Airline food is prepared in a way that it can be heated swiftly with minimal facilities, thus meaning that it often tastes odd and sub-par, as it can’t be prepared fresh. ATM components are mass-produced, including keypads, hence why drive-through ATMs still have braille for the visually impaired. We drive on [...]

The Daily Grind: Have you tried any new MMOs this summer?
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 July 2016, 8:00 am
I always have the loftiest of intentions to dig into MMOs I’ve never played before, going so far as to load a slew of them onto my hard drive for that mythological evening when I get adventurous and explore them. Then, of course, I keep going back to my familiar “comfort” MMOs because learning new games is, like, hard and stuff. [...]

'Project Sonic 2017' is coming to Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo NX
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 July 2016, 1:20 am
While fans will celebrate the series' 25th anniversary with a 2D throwback game in Sonic Mania, the Sonic Team (Sonic Colors, Sonic Generations) is working on something new. Tonight Sega dropped this teaser trailer for "Project Sonic," which is due for the 2017 holiday season on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo's NX. Everything in the trailer is CG, but it does indicate that we can expect both a "Modern" and "Classic" Sonic to make an appearance.

'Sonic Mania' looks like the 2D sequel fans deserve
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 July 2016, 11:22 pm
Sonic The Hedgehog is more than just a trash-talking Twitter account. To celebrate the franchise's 25 year anniversary, Sega is taking the series back to its 2D roots. Sonic Mania looks like it'll strip away all the extraneous bloat that's barnacled itself to the core gameplay since the Blue Blur's glory days, with a focus on what always worked so well. Namely, going fast, collecting rings and moving from left to right.

Deconstructing the legendary dungeons of 'Ocarina of Time'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 July 2016, 7:22 pm

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is one of those games that practically everyone has played and regards fondly. The landmark 1998 game was incredibly influential, and when folks put together lists of "best games of all time," it's usually within the top ten. Ocarina also marked the long-running franchise's move from a top-down view to full 3D thanks to the leap in power that the Nintendo 64 provided. But how do its dungeons stack up to previous games in the series? Specifically, A Link to the Past and Link's Awakening? YouTuber Mark Brown answers just that with a smart and thoughtful examination of the game.

3D-printed 'Pokémon Go' cover aims for you, obscures screen
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 July 2016, 5:55 pm

Catching monsters in Pokémon Go sounds deceptively simple: find a creature, and throw an imaginary ball at it by swiping up on your phone screen. The reality is a lot more frustrating -- if you don't flick your finger in a perfectly straight line, the throw will curve to the side and miss. There are two solutions to this. You could practice, or, you could 3D-print a ridiculous phone-cover that takes away all of the challenge. Jon Clever chose to do the latter.
