Betawatch: Dark and Light enters closed testing (June 23, 2017)

One game enters the list and another leaves. Dark and Light has started its closed testing, although there’s a very small number of people currently invited to test the game, so you’re probably not on the list. Meanwhile, Master x Master has entered the shark-infested waters of launch, so it’s now as real as it gets. Hooray for changes on […]

Gloria Victis shows off the results of its combat upgrade

We don’t mean to surprise you, but Gloria Victis involves a whole lot of fighting things. You have various sharp bits of metal that you insert into some living creature or another, hopefully before they can do the same to you. So it’s important that combat feel as solid as possible, hence the new combat upgrade. You can watch the […]

ArcheAge Begins puts a call out for Android mobile testers

ArcheAge Begins’ title is never going to be as appropriate as it is right now. Gamevil’s spin-off of XLGAMES’ well-known MMO sandbox has just kicked off its first global closed beta test and is looking for a few players to give the game a test drive.

The Light in My Mirai

Greetings, adventurers!

Luxpheras here, very excited to share with you some exciting news from the team in Japan!

On Saturday, June 10, and Sunday, June 11, the FINAL FANTASY XIV team had the delight of performing some projection mapping at Yokohama Minato Mirai.

Many Warriors of Light came out to Yokohama to see the array of FINAL FANTASY XIV related images and movies on display against the various buildings of Minato Mirai. Thank you all so much for the support!

While there was a space prepared as viewing area for visitors to enjoy the sight, you could still see the projection mapping from various parts of the city.

Here we see the vengeful Bahamut arriving sea-side in Yokohama.

A view from the water, over the sky dock.

You could even see it from the Ferris wheel if you got the timing right!

It took the team two years of planning to make this production a reality. There were so many people gathered around at this event that we couldn’t even fit the whole crowd on camera! Thank you so much to the FINAL FANTASY XIV community for helping us record the in-game footage for the ending, as it would not have been possible without your participation!

Watching this unfold live was an emotional experience for the team that put this event together, and they were warmed by the happiness and support of the community that has made this all possible.

Take a look at the official video for this dazzling event!

We’re planning to release some behind-the-scenes footage as well as more in-game footage that we couldn’t fit into the video, so please look forward to it!

Em-8ER funds on Indiegogo and adds new stretch goals

If you were worried that Mark Kern’s Em-8ER (properly pronounced “eem-eight-er” for those willing to die upon snarky hills) wouldn’t fund on its latest Indiegogo push, good news! It’s already funded and looking toward stretch goals. Of course, one could argue that since the game has already had one successful Indiegogo campaign and is now having its second in a […]

You’ll notice immediately that World of Warcraft has once again been rejoined! SuperData had split the game into east and west versions for its January report, botched the entries in February and hastily repaired its graphic to rejoin the two; in March, […]

Seattle police officer uses a Destiny livestream to discuss a controversial shooting death

Let’s see if you can follow the chain of logic here. Police officers in Seattle shoot and kill a alleged burglary victim, resulting in controversy over whether or not the officers made the right decision. All understandable. One of the officers of the department took to Twitch in order to deliver an update on the shooting and the reasons behind […]

E3 2017: Why MMO players should be paying attention to Elite Dangerous

I sat down with Elite Dangerous Senior Designer Sandy Sammarco again at E3 2017, and while the information I’ve got in terms of game info may be a bit old hat for hardcore Elite players, I want to be clear on something: MMO players should take note of how Frontier is doing community events. Even if you aren’t interested in the game itself, the […]

– MMORPG?s E3 2017 Best of Show Awards

Another E3, another week of insane gaming news. Light though it was on MMO info, online games in general were all over the place in LA last week. And as we’re wont to do, we’re giving them shiny badges for the sole purpose of hoping they’ll share those badges with their adoring fans. What, you expected me to lie about the reason behind awards? HA. I’m way past that, folks.

Hands-on with Secret World Legends: A second chance for a first impression

I would like to start this article by saying that there are a lot of things to like about Secret World Legends, but for me, those good things — despite their being some of my favorite things about RPGs and MMOs — make it hard to overlook what I consider the flaws of the game. Although there were always weird bits […]
