[Not Massive] Titanfall 2 Trial Coming Soon

Titanfall 2 is a fantastic shooter whose success has been hampered thanks to the poorly timed launch between Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

[Not Massive] Valve Just Struck Down Digital Homicide

In the world of Steam and shady developers, no name has drawn quite as much hatred from the gaming public like Digital Homicide. Not unlike similar personalities including Uwe Boll, Digital Homicide’s notoriety is only superseded by the fact that the perception of its following is much higher than the real numbers. What it does have, […]

[Not Massive] Dark Souls III Bans A Mark of From Software’s Incompetence

From Software is putting the kibosh on bad gameplay in Dark Souls III and you’d better watch out, especially if you’re not cheating, because the developer doesn’t understand how to protect its own customers from exploits in its game design.

[Not Massive] Fig’s Crowd Funding Platform Is Fading

Psychonauts 2 raised more than $3 million in crowd funding using a new platform called Fig, one which Double Fine President Tim Schafer serves on the advisory board.

Less Massive: Valve Bans CSGO Servers That Falsify Inventories

Valve has issued a warning to server owners in Counter Strike: Global Offensive that modifications that falsify player inventories are not allowed and must be removed before “further action is taken.” Since Valve’s games are heavily modifiable, players in the community quickly figured out methods to alter servers in order to provide players with weapon skins, […]

[Less Massive] Slitherine Among The Best Mobile Devs, Says Slitherine

Pockettactics.com recently named Slitherine Software as runner up to their Creator of the Year award, putting the company in a position that, in their own words, “no other publisher came close” to matching. That makes Slitherine responsible for four games that garnered votes for GotY in our behind-the-scenes polling. No other publisher came close. So what’s the problem? […]

[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 […]

[Updated] Indie Dev Uses Multiple Names To Dodge Bad Rating Association

[Update 5/31: Digital Homicide has updated their games to have a consistent naming, making it possible to easily view all of their games.] Temper Tantrum currently costs 99 cents on Steam.

[Less Massive] Shuttered Game Still Being Sold On Steam

Steam Early Access has seen a lot of criticism, from the fact that most games don’t see completion, to the sale of titles that are at best misleading and at worst engaging in outright fraud. It has also become the source of indie devs putting games up for sale only to engage with the community […]

Less Massive: Afterfall Insanity Is Free, And Still Costs Too Much

If you follow MMO Fallout on Twitter, or even if you don’t and simply catch my tweets on the sidebar of this website, you might have followed a link yesterday to redeem a free copy of Afterfall Insanity. Well, after putting about six hours into the game, I can honestly say that I got out of […]
