The Mummy Online Shutting Down Today

There are teenagers today who were not alive when The Mummy first released, yet have enough sense to tell you what a horrible idea licensing the franchise was for a video game, let alone an MMO. Even 2010 Omali, a pea-brained simpleton who believed anything was viable with enough heart, thought that this was a […]

Bigpoint Unveils Merc Elite, The Not-Fantasy-Themed MOBA

I know what you’re thinking: “A MOBA that isn’t set in a fantasy theme? Bullschtack, Omali!” Personally I am still not convinced that this isn’t some hallucination brought on by the gas station sushi I ate just a few hours ago, but for the sake of staying true to reality, or for the laughs we’ll […]

Bigpoint Lays Off 120, Halts Development in United States

Bigpoint has abandoned development in the United States, according to a news piece by Gamasutra released today. The bad news comes alongside even worse: 120 employees have been laid off from the free to play publisher, over a third if whom are from the San Francisco studio.

Why Aren’t You Playing: Drakensang Online

[Addendum: I mistakenly stated that Drakensang Online was built on the Unity Platform. This was incorrect, it is built off of Bigpoint’s Nebula3 engine.] Drakensang Online is a straight up isometric dungeon crawler, ala Diablo, and for me that is enough of a reason to at least pick the game up and give it a […]

Bigpoint: 250 Million Registered Accounts

Bigpoint Games notoriously has a big mouth when it comes to pointing out their accomplishments, and despite the objections of some of the gaming community over the publisher’s very blatant and self-noted pay-for-advantage model, the company continues to post major profits and major user numbers. Today, the publisher announced that their portfolio of over 60 […]

Speaking of Macrotransactions: Bigpoint’s $1,000 Spaceship

I hesitate to talk trash about Bigpoint games, and not just because the company could throw a million bucks my way to shut me up and it’d be like the CEO dropped a few pennies out of his pocket, but because the company has indeed found a way to monetize any aspect of their games […]

Poop Talk: Battlestar Galactica Vs The Old Republic

Over here at MMO Fallout, we follow the mantra of publishing and forwarding ego-driven banter, and generally for the sole purpose of its comedic value. Much like how most humorous situations begin with a simple “hey, look what I can do,” the MMO world is no exception to events that begin with high self esteem […]
