MMOments: Secret World Legends and the Power Of Second Impressions

The Secret World will go down in history as one of the few games to put some of its executives in actual, physical prison, a strong connection considering that the game itself didn’t exactly leave much of a splash on the genre when it launched in 2012. It’s disappointing but true, while critics were praising […]

MMOments: The Exiled, No Land For The Sheep

(Editor’s Note: MMO Fallout received a key from the developer for the purposes of reviewing. The opinions of this website cannot by swayed by anything short of a case of Orbitz drink) I started playing The Exiled a few days before the actual launch, and my first thought was basically the same that I had […]

MMOments: Meg’s Cases In May [RuneScape]

This is going to be a short piece. RuneScape is getting into May and that means another month-long update. Meg is an NPC normally found in player owned ports, she asks the player questions and disappears for a while to show back up with a reward based on how well the player answered her previous […]

MMOments: Blade & Soul

Blade & Soul is one of those games that we’ve been impatiently waiting to come westward for a few years now, and like any game that we are regularly told we can’t have, the hype train has gotten out of hand at one point or another. I think that the majority of gamers saw NCSoft’s […]

MMOments: Nosgoth’s The Nest Map

I recently had the opportunity to play Nosgoth’s upcoming map,┬áThe Nest. If you haven’t played the game, Nosgoth is a team-based multiplayer game developed by Psyonix and set in the world of the Legacy of Kain games. It is the first in the series to be released in over ten years, with Legacy of Kain […]

MMOments: Deadman Is DarkScape Plus Punishment

Deadman Mode is DarkScape plus punishment, a statement that should be instantly endearing to anyone who tried out the RS3 mode and found it too accommodating to rushers and griefers. If you’re looking for Old School RuneScape with more rogue-like features, this is the place to be. If you’re not willing to lose a lot, […]

MMOments: Marvel Heroes Anniversary Achievements

Marvel Heroes is in the fourth week of its second anniversary, and that means if you haven’t already started working on the related achievements, you’re probably too late. If you haven’t been tuning into the ARPG these past few weeks, you missed out on a lot of free stuff. A random hero, Angel team up, […]

Early Access: Szone – You Have Left The Zone

If gaming has suffered in any way from the MMO industry shift to free to play, it is through the saturation of what I’ve referred to as mass-market shovelware, MMOs that┬áseem to exist for no other reason than to show up, exist for a while, and then hopefully leave with a little profit. These are […]

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 […]

MMOments: Big Farm

(Disclosure: This is a collaboration between MMO Fallout and Poki.com.) When I look at games like Big Farm, I see a genre soured by the greedy actions of a monolithic developer that tried and miraculously failed to build an empire out of monetizing its own property at the cost of public relations and long term […]
