Fraudster Update: Will Adkins and the Open Letter to MMO Bomb

It’s been nearly two weeks since MMO Fallout published our piece regarding the Marvel Heroes Rebirth Indiegogo project, Marvel Heroes and the Diploma Mill of Nostalgia, and the article has garnered quite a bit of controversy by which I mean accusations of plagiarism and a demand that we link to a blog you might formally […]

Chaturday: The Jack Thompson Reboot

This Chaturday I want to talk about Jack Thompson, because as we all know Hollywood and that means endless reboots and sequels of franchises, the kind we wish would have gone away after the last sequel flubbed in theaters. The Jack Thompson reboot comes nearly ten years after the film franchise ended what was an […]

Crowdfunding Fraudsters: Marvel Heroes and the Diploma Mill of Nostalgia

Fraudster: 2a:  a person who is not what he or she pretends to be :impostor; Despite all evidence to the contrary, I actually get a lot of criticism when it comes to Crowdfunding Fraudsters for apparently being too lenient on the subjects. I take a lot of time to carefully parse my statements so that we’re […]

Crowdfunding Update: Greed Monger Delivering Refunds To Backers

Greed Monger is a bit of a touchy subject here at MMO Fallout, considering it’s one of the few games that we outright refused to publicize should it ever reappear on Kickstarter, but we have some positive news on the game and its creator Jason Appleton. While Appleton may not have had much success creating […]

[NM] Electronic Arts Gives Wrong Numbers On Battlefront II Sales, A Lot of Websites Haven’t Corrected It

Electronic Arts released their third quarter results for the 2018 fiscal year this week, noting increased revenues to $1.16 billion compared to $1.14 billion last year with higher operating expenses. Sales were driven primarily by live games including the various Ultimate Team systems and The Sims 4, with little doubt to the notion that last […]

Early Access: Tower Of Time Hands On Impressions

Tower of Time is hoping to continue the legacy of games like Baldur’s Gate and so far my time with the early access version has proven it a worthy successor. It strikes me as exactly the kind of title that hardcore RPG enthusiasts would be happy to get their hands on, the combination of strategic […]

Early Access Title Tower of Time To Launch This April

Fledgling developer Event Horizon is getting ready to release their CRPG Tower of Time early this year on PC, and players are meeting the title with open arms and positive reviews. Boasting 30 hours of story gameplay on launch, Tower of Time promises to harken back to the days of Baldur’s Gate and the Might […]

MMOments: RuneScape and Aura Quality of Life

My first reaction to this week’s RuneScape update was “this may be the thing that gets me playing regularly again.” If you asked me what my biggest gripe with RuneScape has been over the past four years, it’s the aura system. Auras are RuneScape’s temporary boons, they give bonuses to various parts of gameplay, and […]

In Plain English: Crytek V Cloud Imperium Games (and RSI)

1. Dismissal Sounds Unlikely Let’s start off at the same station and make a few things clear: Despite what is being tossed around on the internet, this case is not a slam dunk for either side (at least not evident from the statements being thrown back and forth). It is very likely that this case […]

[NM] Youtuber DalasReview Pulls Fur Fun From Steam After Game Flops

Youtuber Dalasreview has fully pulled his title Fur Fun from Steam barely ten months after a controversial release and virtually no response from the Steam market. Fur Fun began as a game attempting to obtain crowdfunding to produce a Banjo-Kazooie style game. When those crowdfunding attempts failed, popular Spanish Youtuber Dalasreview backed the game and […]
