Beta Perspective: Wild West Online Is Hot Trash A La Mode (Hold the Ice Cream)

An empty wilderness, terrible sound quality, cheap animations, and unfinished assets everywhere with nothing to do but die and see your character irreversibly bricked. It may be in alpha, but Wild West Online is easily a fast contender for worst game of 2017, what is looking to be a shoddy title with questionable connections to […]

Beta Perspective: Gigantic

I’m having a lot of fun on Gigantic. I guess I should elaborate. I very rarely talk about MOBA titles here on MMO Fallout because I personally don’t care for them and, based on a poll I did a couple of years ago, my audience doesn’t either. So the few titles that I do talk […]

Beta Perspective: Criticism of the Avatar

Shroud of the Avatar starts you out as the corporeal form of the Avatar, an individual who has been summoned to Brittania time and time again to save the world from impending destruction. You meet with Lady British, who tells you that even her husband has returned to deal with evil forces threatening the land. […]

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 […]

Beta Perspective: Fantasy Tales Online

It’s very obvious, or at least it should be, when you’re dealing with an independent MMO made with passion. Fantasy Tales Online, as I’ve been told, is being developed by a team of three people at Cold Tea Studio. Right now the game is gearing up for Steam early access, and I was contacted and […]

Beta Perspective: Paladins

Hi-Rez Studios is one of those “follow the trend” developers, one that doesn’t seem to have an explicit purpose like Treyarch (first person shooters), Obsidian Entertainment (role playing games), or Sergey Titov (shovelware). Instead, the company’s development history can be summed up as whatever seems to be most popular at the time, with its first two […]

Beta Perspective: Triad Wars

Disclosure: I haven’t played Sleeping Dogs, to which Triad Wars is set in the same universe, so this series is new to me. MMO Fallout should be taking part in a beta key giveaway at some point in the near future. (Correction: Triad Wars is set in the same world as Sleeping Dogs, it is […]

Beta Perspective: RPG MO

The best thing about old school gaming is that no matter how old I get, it stays just the same. RPG MO, which sounds like the gaming equivalent of the twenty pound bag of generic cereal you can buy for $1 at the grocery store, is an in-development MMO heavily reminiscent of RuneScape Classic that […]

Beta Perspective: Destiny on PS4

Aren’t pre-order betas great? You throw $5 (refundable) down at Gamestop and, in return, you get what can nearly be called a preview copy of your game to play and figure out if it’s going to be worth buying. Where else can you get that kind of preview, apart from perhaps every other form of […]

A Beta Perspective: Elder Scrolls Online

Since the dawn of time, many have asked why the Beta Perspective has not yet covered the Elder Scrolls Online, and the answer is as old as time itself: Zenimax doesn’t regard us as a press outfit. I hold no grudges against them, I am merely pointing this out for the purpose of transparency. Factored […]
