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 […]

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.

Today we’re revisiting the ZX Spectrum Vega+, a handheld device slated […]

Greenlight Fraudsters: MechDefender Scams Greenlight Bundle

MechDefender is a recently released game by developer Elite Games Ltd, Vadim Starygin, and one that currently has zero concurrent players, a factor that probably won’t change much so long as Elite Games refuses to give keys to the customers who purchased them. You see, MechDefender was partnered with the OtakuMaker Greenlight Bundle, a Steam bundle where […]

Early Access Fraudsters: Shady Developer Lord Kres Is Still Shady

(Editor’s Note: You may notice that this article makes no use of screenshots from the game Voxelized and only utilizes third party Youtube videos. This is rare, but we do it to mitigate any potential frivolous take down requests being sent to our host over use of copyrighted material. Enjoy.) Steam Developer Lord Kres is […]
