Betawatch: Wild West Online’s alpha just isn’t ready (October 13, 2017)

It’s not high noon in Wild West Online. It’s not any time at all, in fact. The game’s early access alpha would have established a time, probably, but that’s been delayed because… well, the game just isn’t ready for that sort of testing yet. Disappointing for those looking forward to the game? Certainly. But probably for the best in the […]

Hearthstone changes triggers to help make the game more intuitive

With hundreds of cards designed at this point, Hearthstone matches are awash in a sea of effects and triggers that activate under certain conditions. With so much going on, it might be easy for players to get confused about the order of when and how spell effects happen, which is why the team is making a pair of small but […]

IGN has apparently bought up the Humble Bundle company

IGN has just announced that it’s scooped up a pretty sweet acquisition: It now owns the company behind Humble Bundle, known best for its cheap game bundle deals and originally famed for its charity work (reportedly over $100M for charity since 2010). In an interview with Gamasutra, the top men of both Humble and IGN say they have no grand […]

LOTRO continues to course-correct gear issues, starts Harvest Festival, and gives away mithril tokens

Lord of the Rings Online’s sloppy QA process has resulted in a quagmire of issues following the release of this week’s Update 21. Previously, the studio accidentally sold its new dungeon gear for way too cheap and then tried to remove all of purchased gear without compensation (a move that was later tempered due to player outrage). But the woes […]

Destiny 2 vows not to delay Prestige raid further despite existing exploit

So here is an interesting conundrum: Say you have a highly anticipated raid in the works that you’ve already delayed. Now that the new launch date is approaching, you’ve discovered a pretty significant exploit but don’t have the time to properly institute a fix. What do you do? For Destiny 2’s Prestige raid, Bungie has decided not to delay a […]

Dark and Light encourages you to beat up goblins for sweet, sweet candy

Back in September, Massively OP went deep undercover to bring players a shocking exposé on how Dark and Light subtly conditions players to become bullies by beating up and then enslaving the local goblin population. We thought it could get no worse… until now. With the advent of Gobboween, there’s a new reason to take out latent aggression on the […]

Skyforge’s new equipment system puts the power of stats in your hands

Here’s a think piece: Why do so many MMORPGs make gear stats needlessly complex and obtuse? What might make sense to a developer who lives and breathes these numbers is headache-inducing calculus to players. Enter Skyforge and its new equipment system, which is attempting to make gear both understandable and adaptable to the needs of each gamer. Each piece of […]

TERA and Kritika Online kick off Halloween festivities

Let it not be said that En Masse doesn’t embrace the Halloween spirit, for both of its core MMORPGs in the west are getting all dolled up for the season starting next week. In TERA, Kyra’s Pop-Up Potion Shack and Harvest Festival Hall return on October 19th. The former brings the Kyra’s Catalysts quests in exchange for prizes (mummy costume, […]

LawBreakers reportedly drops to ten concurrent players on PC

Good news, LawBreakers fans! The game has set a new record for concurrency by reaching its unprecedented nadir of 10 players online! That’s according to PCGamesN, anyway, and we’re assuming they’re using Steam stats to come to that number, since we don’t have access to console numbers. Ten is exactly enough players to play one match, so the game was […]

Choose My Adventure: Map-based antics in Guild Wars 2

One of the points of the polls and discussions for Guild Wars 2 the other week was that while I could focus on either map antics or storyline progression, I wouldn’t be doing just one or the other. Some of this is just practicality – if a story mission is bringing me close to a waypoint anyway, it would be […]

Pantheon’s halflings are more like Peter Pan’s Lost Boys than Tolkien’s hobbits

The MOP team tricked me into taking this post. They promised me gnomes. They aren’t gnomes at all. They’re halflings! We’re talking, of course, about Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen, which this week released its October newsletter, the star of which is the newly revealed playable halflings. The Visionary Realms devs say the halfling will look familiar but not identical […]

City of Titans outlines power set design for the game

As a spiritual successor to City of Heroes, there’s an obvious line through City of Titans when it comes to powers. That does not, however, mean that the game is just copying the CoH design process and calling it a day. No, CoT is designing its powers based on layers, starting with the set’s basic playstyle, then its focused style, […]

Rumor: H1Z1 is about to drop King of the Kill branding (and maybe it’s really launching)

Remember in 2016 when Daybreak split H1Z1 into two separate games, H1Z1: King of the Kill and H1Z1: Just Survive? Remember back in August when Daybreak dropped the “H1Z1” from Just Survive’s branding, cutting loose the survival sandbox half of the original split-apart game? And remember earlier this week when Daybreak announced a pro league for H1Z1 – without using […]

City of Heroes’ Paragon Chat is getting its own player-run Halloween contests, missions, and music

Just because City of Heroes is gone doesn’t mean that you can’t have Halloween events for the game. It sort of does remove most of the usual options, yes, but the folks behind Paragon Chat aren’t about to let that stop them. A big in-game Halloween party is planned for October 21st, and it’s going to have everything you could […]
