Divergence Online Pulled From Steam By Developer

Divergence Online is no longer available for purchase from Steam, with developer Ethan Casner pointing to harassment from Steam users as well as displeasure with how Valve is handling said reviews/comments. Casner points specifically to user reviews using offensive slurs, as well as attempts to dox the developer through the review/comment system. While the comments […]

League of Angels Only Wants 18+ Males

I don’t normally report on Facebook ads since most of you likely block them anyway and I could devote an entire book to how Chinese browser games engage in blatant fraud in Facebook ads either by outright lying about their games or going as far as using screenshots/video¬†from other titles. And since League of Angels […]

Korea Halts Facebook Microtransactions

Way back in 2011, I talked about the Games Rating Board in South Korea, and how the government organization was investigating certain video games to determine whether or not the virtual lotteries were in violation of the country’s strict anti-gambling laws. Fast forward to 2014, and South Korean gamers woke up to find that many […]

Dino Storm Hit With DDoS Attacks

Here at MMO Fallout, we have no patience for hackers or script kiddies, especially considering their motivations are more often than not for either craps and giggles or for malicious reasons (identity theft). The folks behind Dino Storm have spent the better part of the last twenty four hours fighting off a distributed denial of […]

Electronic Arts Shutting Down Several Facebook Games

It looks like the lawsuit between Electronic Arts and Zynga over whether or not The Ville copied Sims Social¬†was for naught, as today EA announced that a small selection of their Facebook titles will be shut down on June 14th. The shutdown comes in response to dwindling population numbers in all three games, and EA […]

GamersFirst Takes A Hard Stance on Scrubs In Fallen Earth

Everyone hates scrubs in their video games, and while GamersFirst isn’t exactly sure what a “scrub” is, they have the power of Merriam Webster’s dictionary. In a post on Facebook, Tee Affo has announced a new dedication to removing scrubs, no matter their definition, from Fallen Earth. Tee Affo with a special report – We’ve […]

Mortal Online: Link Facebook, Get Discount(?)…

As someone who works in brick’n’mortar store customer service, I’m often presented with the question; “is it seriously a sale when a $10.99 item is put in sale for $10.50?” and the answer is, in a certain sense, yes. The sale may not be particularly good, but given the new price is smaller than the […]

Mortal Online: Facebook Discount, Expansion Coming

We have been silent for some time now while working very hard on our first expansion titled Dawn, and we now feel ready to reveal its contents. The expansion will be released in April, and it will not cost anything, all you need is an active subscription. Mortal Online has gone through some…troubles in its […]

Warhammer: All We Need Is Five Thousand Fans…

The folks at Warhammer Online have a simple task for their fans. Get five thousand “likes” on Facebook, and the company will reduce the RvR Booster Double Pack down to $9.99 from its original $14.99 price. To my knowledge, there is no time limit on this promotion, although I have to express my doubts that […]

Frogster: Misleading, Possibly Fraudulent Facebook Ads

I was going about my daily Facebook activities (posting creepy Woody pictures), and lo and behold, I came across the following ad: You’ll notice that this ad links to “secure.jagex.com,” and I quite honestly expected that this was either A.) a scam ad that managed to get through, or B.) Jagex was advertising on Facebook, […]
