[Community] Wild West Online, Everquest Next, and Guaranteed Refunds

I refuse to advocate or advertise Wild West Online’s preorder scheme, but I am going to tell you why I don’t trust buying into it and how it all comes back to Everquest Next, zombies, and Sergey Titov.

[NM] For Honor Exploit Costs Ubisoft $10,000 After Ignoring Major Game Balance Issues

It’s a tale that sounds tailor made for news headlines, but at a recent tournament held by Ubisoft for For Honor, the grand prize of $10 thousand ultimately went to contestants who played, dare we say it, dishonorably.

If No Man’s Sky can teach us anything about the industry, it’s that you’re never too late for a second chance.

[Column] Mobile Legends Threatens The Press, Good Luck With That

Riot Games is currently suing Moonton over alleged copyright infringement in regards to their game Mobile Legends.
