If you managed to get access to the Titanfall: Frontline beta, congratulations: You're playing a mobile game marked for death.

Shroud of the Avatar explains changes to conversation window and lock system
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 7:00 pm
If you've ever roleplayed in a story-driven MMORPG, you know that having a quality and immersive chat interaction system is absolutely critical -- without it, you're going to just tab through and never read a word. That's precisely why Shroud of the Avatar is overhauling the game's conversation window. "In Release 38, we are updating the conversation window used for [...]

Throne of Lies creates a castle of backstabbing, deceit, and shaky alliances
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 8:00 pm
Remember playing Werewolf or Mafia with your friends at parties, trying to deduce the killer while avoiding being killed yourself? The makers of Throne of Lies certainly hope so, because they're literally banking on a demand for an online version to be made. Throne of Lies is a multiplayer game of "lies and deceit" set in a medieval castle where [...]

DC Universe Online releases new powers for stat revamp testing
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 5:00 pm
A lot of testing needs to go into DC Universe Online's stat revamp to make sure that all of the game's powers and such actually work with the new stat balance. The alternative would be kind of embarrassing. Three new sets have been added to the game's test servers for players to double-check; you can log in to the test [...]

Finishing up today is Crowfall's Indiegogo-based equity crowdfunding campaign, one of the first games and MMORPGs to take advantage of new 2016 laws that allow regular people to invest in small indie companies online. As I write this, the studio has raised just over $600,000 with just over 1100 investors, solidly in the middle of its $159K-$1M goal range. I'm [...]

New Dawn heads to Kickstarter for financial support

Stop us if you've heard this game concept before: You wake up on an island and have to survive the elements, your own hunger, the wildlife, and hostile forces. New Dawn is hoping that its approach of pitting you as a South American native against pirates in the 19th century is enough to separate it from the rest of the [...]

The heart of Nintendo's new console isn't the Switch
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 4:00 pm

I spent half of last Friday tearing my way through games at Nintendo's big Switch launch event. More than any particular title, the highlight was the hardware itself: a $300 console-handheld hybrid that's harder to describe than the latest Xbox or PlayStation. The Switch console is actually a tablet: It's the piece that does all the processing and acts as screen when it's away from your housebound dock and TV. But if the tablet is the brains of Nintendo's strange new 2-in-1, the heart is split between the two included Joy-Con controllers.

'Halo' developer hints it could revive a scrapped Mega Bloks game
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 1:39 pm

Lately, there's been a lot of buzz around footage PtoPOnline posted of a scrapped, Mega Bloks-themed Halo action game. Why did it get the axe when its mix of shooting and construction looks like a blast to play? You're not about to get that exact title, but you might see something like it in the future. In a news update acknowledging the leaked game (known internally as Project Haggar), current Halo developer 343 Industries has said that there may be a game "along these lines" as a result of all the "positive support and feedback" from fans watching the Mega Bloks clip.

SWTOR bug drives enemy boss to commit suicide

Any MMO dungeon boss knows that it is only a matter of time before he, she, or it will be slaughtered by a pack of well-geared, highly trained adventurers. As inevitable as this may be, there is one NPC in Star Wars: The Old Republic who has decided to take matters in his own hands and commit suicide before suffering [...]

World of Warcraft scrambles to fix post-7.1.5 class balance
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 10:00 am
World of Warcraft's most recent content update isn't a week old yet, but it's already dug itself into a pit of controversy. You see, Patch 7.1.5 contained significant balance tweaks for many classes, but instead of making things better across the board, it actually knocked some classes to the bottom of the heap (in particular, every Hunters spec) and created [...]

Funcom stresses the importance of lore and mystery in Conan Exiles
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 11:00 am
Conan lore is probably the most contentious thing about the franchise, and Funcom today has clarified the focus of that lore in Conan Exiles when it hits early access later this month. The game is set specifically between Xuthal of the Dusk (The Slithering Shadow) and A Witch Shall be Born, a pair of stories written in 1933 and 1934. You're not [...]

NVIDIA's original Shield TV gets the new model's smarts
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 10:43 am

Nvidia unveiled a new Shield TV box at CES, but the list of upgrades was pretty slim. It has a funky new controller, with a mesh of triangles peppering the grips, but otherwise it's the same hardware with some extra software bells and whistles. If you have the older model, good news -- today, you're getting all those non-hardware additions too. They include a new foundation -- Android 7.0 Nougat -- and a bunch of new apps including Amazon Video, Twitter, the NFL, Comedy Central and Vimeo.

Magnificent 7 (2016) Review
Posted by A Green Mushroom [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2017, 10:00 am

This the the movie that finally solidified the fact that I just don't like Westerns.  I've always been ambivalent with Westerns but Magnificent 7 had enough actors that I like that it convinced me to give it a shot.

It is a very mediocre movie.  It's completely predictable.  The pacing is sooooo slow.  I think it's a stereotypical Western but made in 2016 instead of the golden age of Westerns.  It just completely and utterly failed to click with me.

I even held out for the end hoping something would redeem it.  Maybe the fight scenes would get better.  Maybe there would be a cool twist.  Maybe a character would actually have character development!  No on all counts.

At least now I've learned that while I don't mind a Western setting (see my love of Westworld) I do hate the genre of Westerns.  The genre styles and conventions just aren't for me.
