Top 5: Obnoxious Gamers Who Eventually Get Banned


The number one article request I get here at MMO Fallout is when someone gets banned from an MMO and wants me to write a scathing piece about how the developer wronged them. I don’t follow through with them, but that doesn’t mean I am not paying attention. Years of wrongful ban claims and actively engaging […]

MMOrning Shots: Scourge of the Warlock


Today’s MMOrning Shot comes to us from Perfect World Entertainment, showing off the latest class to hit Neverwinter: The Scourge Warlock. Module 4 releases on August 14th. Check out MMOrning Shots every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

MMOrning Shots: Menu Redux


Today’s MMOrning Shots is a callback to a classic, which is what we writers use as code word for using old content to mask a lack of new content to show. Remember back when Final Fantasy XIV was under reconstruction and how one of the big reveals was that Square Enix had tested their new […]

MMOrning Shots: Dino Day


Today’s MMOrning Shot comes to us from The World II, showing off just about the coolest boss I have seen in an MMO. I present you with Mecha-Rex. Mecha-Rex seems like your typical Tyrannosaurus-Rex that you probably have seen in other games. We however upped the ante by including a large sharp spiked tail on […]

Video: Final Fantasy XIV Patch 2.3


Final Fantasy’s 2.3 patch is so massive, it requires an equally beefy eight minute trailer. Those of you with active subscriptions are likely already downloading the patch as I write this, so just watch the trailer anyway.

MMOrning Shots: Gorilla Warfare


Today’s MMOrning Shot comes to us from RuneScape, where Jagex has teamed up with the Unity for Wildlife charity and United for Rhino campaign to help raise awareness for illegal poaching. Over the course of the next two weeks, players will be able to answer daily rhino questions. Answer four of them correctly and adopt […]

MMOrning Shots: Cthulhu Slumbers Again


Today’s MMOrning Shot comes to us from The Secret World, where I’ve managed to make my way past the core game content and into Issue #1 without ever finishing the first dungeon. Call me lazy, but I’ve always found The Secret World’s grouping system to be a major pain in the rear. Couple that with […]

MMOrning Shots: $600k Smite


Today’s MMOrning Shot comes to us from Hi-Rez Studios, who want everyone to know about the upcoming world championship for Smite to be held in Atlanta, Georgia, home of the Atlanta Georgians. The prize pool currently stands at six hundred thousand and is expected to grow in time thanks to community contributions and content sales. […]

MMOrning Shots: Skara’d Of The Dark


Today’s MMOrning Shot comes to us from Skara: The Blade Remains. I had the opportunity to do a bit of sparring on a very early version of Skara, and while the game is still has a very long way to go, it already looks fantastic on the Unreal Engine 4. You can check out Skara’s […]

MMOments: Neverwinter Key Test


Neverwinter is a game that I’ve had quite a bit of fun in lately. Between the game’s constant events, my slow progress of leveling up my character, and distractions of daily life preventing me from playing too much, I finally managed to nearly hit the game’s level cap. As I write this, I’m sitting at […]
