Whatever Happened To: Hellgate 2

I know what you’re thinking: There was a Hellgate 2? Technically no, which is why we are here in the first place. I had absolutely no idea that a Hellgate 2 was in development, partly because it was announced way back in 2011 and we haven’t heard anything about it since. Set to appear on […]

Mythos Global Shutting Down

Mythos is the second game from ex-developer Flagship Studios, the one that they weren’t able to release before the company went bankrupt. Korean publisher Hanbitsoft took on the development of both of Flagship’s games, eventually releasing Mythos in Europe in mid 2011 through publisher Frogster. The servers didn’t last long, launching in April with Frogster […]

Hellgate: Global Shutting Down In Japan

Editor’s Note:┬áPlease note that the information is based off of a translated Japanese announcement. Some details may have been lost in translation. I know what you’re thinking, “Omali, didn’t Hellgate Global shut down like three years ago?” No. Hellgate Global doesn’t make much news nowadays since Hanbitsoft hasn’t done much following the launch of Hellgate: […]

[Video] Catching Up With Hellgate

Hellgate Global is free to play, but as users have pointed out lately, you’re going to have to do a lot of grinding to get the money to buy content off of the auction house.

Hellgate Global: Status Update and Ticket Prices

Back in July, I talked about how players can get access to Hellgate Global’s Act 3 ticket and Tokyo expansion without paying a dime by paying for the tickets on the in-game auction house. At the time, the tickets only cost a few hundred thousand palladium. In September, I updated the post with another update: […]

Mythos Will Not Die: Coming Back In December

Stupid Omali, why did you delete the Mythos category? Frogster might be finished with Mythos, but that isn’t stopping Hanbitsoft from completing its collection of dead Flagship Studios projects by scooping up the title and announcing the first closed beta test of Mythos Global. Set to begin December 1st, Hanbitsoft wants you to know that […]

Why Aren’t You Playing: HellGate Global

Hellgate Global is an interesting concept: Take the dungeon crawling of Diablo, combined with the random item combination drops of Diablo, throw in some role playing elements, toss in guns, and place it in the setting of post-apocalypse battle against hell. If the box price and subscription fee was a bit too unnerving when Hellgate […]

Nexon, Hanbitsoft, NCsoft Block Korean Probe Into Gambling

You’ve most likely heard of “jackpot items,” even if you aren’t entirely familiar with the term itself. These items cost real money and only offer the chance at a high level piece of equipment, usually a very slim chance at that. I’ve been rather critical of jackpot items in the past, I’ve referred to them […]

Hellgate: Stuck At Waterloo Bridge Passageway

[Update: The tickets for Act 3 and Tokyo are now free for everyone. You can find them at an NPC vendor in the first hub] When Hellgate: London relaunched, I decided to incorporate it into a new run of features titled “How Free Can You Be?” So far, I’ve already incorporated titles including Turbine’s games, […]

Aika Online: Both Versions Opening Globally

Aika Online launched under Gala-Net back in early 2010, and quickly became a subject of controversy in April when it was revealed that the company had begun an IP block on all players outside of North America (due to Hanbitsoft carrying the rights to publish in Europe), after Gala-Net had already opened the cash shop, […]
