No, Squadron 42 isn’t going to release this year

All right, let’s be honest, you probably didn’t actually think that Star Citizen’s much-delayed single-player Squadron 42 was coming out this year. Around this time last year, it was confirmed to have been delayed; now it seems rather definite that it’s not going to be this year, either, as the most recent update on the schedule for CitizenCon confirmed that […]

World of Warcraft Elysium emulator disbands, reforms under cloud of corruption

The drawn-out story of Project Elysium, one of the more notable World of Warcraft emulators that rose to prominence in the wake of last year’s Nostalrius saga that saw the legit WoW community agitate unsuccessfully for vanilla servers, has taken a brutal turn this week. No, Blizzard didn’t issue a cease-and-desist takedown, but rather the emulator operators themselves tanked their own project. The […]

The Daily Grind: Is PUBG finally the ‘WoW killer killer’ we’ve been waiting for?

Say the words “WoW killer” to a bunch of MMORPG players in 2017 and you’re bound to get eyerolls, for good reason: Even though we’ve been watching over the last decade as game after game chased the title, most folks don’t really believe that any MMORPG will ever truly “kill” World of Warcraft except possibly WoW itself, however slowly. Globally oriented, […]

World of Warcraft – Elysium 'Private Server' Shuts Down Temporarily Due to Financial Shenanigans

In World of Warcraft news that’s always good for a few hundred comments, it’s been revealed that the so-called “legacy” WoW server, Elysium, is shutting down due to “failures to uphold the project’s ideas and integrity” with one “staff member” taking home about 2,000 Euros per month via PayPal donations.

Pumpkin Spice Lupin

There’s a chill in the air that blows across Hydaelyn as summer fades, which can only mean one thing: All Saints’ Wake is upon us!

If this is your first time participating in this seasonal event, the journalists at the Mythril Eye have you covered. Here’s a special article written by Havak Alvak, that offers some background on the festivity. (Note that the items listed below the article were from a previous year’s event.)

Let’s look at what rewards we have in store this year!

There must be a full moon over Hydaelyn, because we’re about to see an influx of werewolves.

Check out the Werewolf Attire set:

It’s…so…fluffy! I can hardly stand it! Too cute!

But—I play as a Miqo’te. I already have fluffy ears and a tail to contend with, but thankfully…

It changes the ears! (My, what big ears you have!)

And even the tail!

The tail swings as you scamper about, and you just might be confused for a Lupin! Best of all, the Werewolf Attire is dyeable. Choose from a variety of colors to transform into all sorts of beasts, whether that’s a fearsome werewolf, or simply a Miqo’te who forgot to brush up in the morning.

And as exciting as this fluffy set of paws and claws is, that’s not all! Intriguing new furnishings will also be available.

This year, you can procure a Ghost Candlestand, a Pumpkin Tower, and an All Saints’ Wake advertisement.

The light from the candles sway and flicker, providing an eerie glow to transform any table to a spooky setting! And as you can see, the Pumpkin Tower is quite large, so much so that you can actually…

…jump on to the top of it!

I’m sure housing enthusiasts will find creative ways to use this piece, while I get excited to be part of the décor myself. Be one with the pumpkin.

Moving onto some festival treats! This year we’ve got Pumpkin Pie and Pumpkin Pudding. Delicious!

After a long day of adventuring we’ll come in for some warm pie and pudding, this is going to be…

Wait, that pudding…

It’s YOU?!

* That didn’t stop us from finishing the pudding. We’re growing adventurers, you know. We need nutrients, even if they’re haunted.

** We do not recommend eating the puddings that can be found in various dungeons such as Pharos Sirius and Haukke Manor. Avoid those puddings.

That’s it for our preview of this year’s All Saints’ Wake seasonal event rewards. We hope you have an enchanting time during this night of fright and enjoy these treats too!

Let’s get spooky!

All Saints’ Wake starts on Thursday, October 19th at 1:00 a.m. (PDT).

Wurm Online forces player gods to move on, changes transfer rules

One of the more interesting features of Wurm Online is the ability for players to ascend the mortal realm and become demigods in their own right who can dole out missions and influence the game world. The designers of the game feel that this ascension should come with a physical removal from the world itself, which is why demigods are […]
