NCSoft Sales Boom, Wildstar Flounders In Q1

NCSoft has officially released their first quarter financial documents, and there is plenty to be happy about (providing you are not a developer on or player of Wildstar). Sales hit a boom with a 28% increase over the same time last year while profits over the same period jumped 70%. Pre-tax income flew up 67% […]

Beta Perspective: I Can’t Heap Enough Praise On Overwatch

I don’t think a lot of people had much faith in Overwatch when we first heard of it, after all consider the circumstances. Blizzard just got done telling us that their MMO Titan was being canned because it wasn’t fun, but that the remains of the title would be stitched together in a Frankenstein’s monster-like […]

Divergence Online Ultimatum: No More Free Keys

Divergence Online is an upcoming hardcore sandbox MMO by developer Stained Glass Llama, dubbed a spiritual successor to pre-CU Galaxies and set to hit Steam as soon as Valve hits the launch button. SGL hopes to bring Divergence back to the glory days of sandbox games, one that predates Youtubers and streamers using their alleged […]

Soldier Front 2: Highly Reviewed, On Steam, Also Defunct

Soldier Front 2 is one of many free to play first person shooters on Steam and, if you’re anything like me, you may have stumbled upon it while browsing your recommended queue during the holiday sale. It may have even caught your eye, being a free to play shooter with a “very positive” community rating, […]

[Less Massive] The Mean Greens: Plastic Warfare

(Disclosure: The review copy of this game was provided to us) I wouldn’t be doing my job as a guy who writes about games online if I didn’t wax poetic constantly about how the new generation of games are all garbage in comparison to the older, and how you kids today wouldn’t know quality gaming […]

RaiderZ Getting Shut Down In August

When I interviewed Perfect World Entertainment back in 2013, we were assured that despite servers shutting down in Europe and Korea, that business would continue as usual. That business, I assume was solely predicated on the continuing survival of MAIET Entertainment, the game’s developer. Well MAIET Entertainment as a company is dead and buried, and […]

[Less Massive] Anti-Gamer Senator Leland Yee Off To Prison

Former California State Senator Leland Yee this week pleaded guilty to charges of racketeering in the San Francisco federal court. Yee admitted to accepting bribes in return for favors, including ten thousand in return for assisting in obtaining a state grant, eleven grand to meet with another state senator to discuss legislation, extorting money in […]

Nothing To See Here: Another Indie Meltdown

Darkbase 01 is a shooter developed by Nothing To See Here. Well, not really, it’s developed by Solar Storm Studio, a single person studio located in Trinidad & Tobago if his various profiles are to be believed. The game currently has 73 reviews and a 21% approvalĀ rating, slightly skewed since many of the positive reviews […]

Beta Perspective: RuneScape Death Mechanics

Now that Jagex has joined the rest of the MMO industry with the launch of a test server for major updates, I figured I’d use the opportunity to take a quick look at the upcoming new death mechanic as it currently stands. RuneScape’s death system has been a hot topic for years, as it started […]
