[NM] Despite Loot Box Controversy, Shadow of War Gets Good Reviews

Yesterday marked the launch of Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, and not everyone is happy with Monolith’s monetization scheme.

Over on Steam, […]

[NM] Telltale Batman Game Shows Very Real Dead Russian Ambassador [Warning]

(Update: Telltale has stated that the image has been removed and that they are looking into how it ended up in the game to begin with) (Editor’s Note: In probably the first and hopefully last time on this website, this article contains a photograph of the aftermath of a shooting. There is no blood/gore present […]

Crowdfunding Fraudsters Update: Retro Computers Ltd Sanctions Doxxing, Slandering Competition

(Update: MMO Fallout incorrectly stated that George Cropper and James Ball Duncan were involved in Retro Games Ltd. This has been corrected by Paul Andrews and is not the case.)

Chaturday: The Story of In Plain English and how Atlus Got Copyright Wrong

Diaries From Guild Wars 2 Part 1: Path of Fire

(Disclosure: I received a copy of Path of Fire for the purpose of writing about. As always, this has no bearing on my opinion on the game) Guild Wars 2 has been my on-again off-again MMO for the past few years (five, it’s been five years since Guild Wars 2 launched. Crazy, right?) The past […]

[Community] Wild West Online, Another Bad Weekend, and Humble Pie On Refunds

Wild West Online might be the worst game of 2017, and its alpha weekend rollout might be the worst pitch to buy a game that I have seen since The WarZ did it years ago, but I have to give some kudos to the team. Let’s talk. This weekend marked the second alpha test weekend […]
