Lineage II players by now are used to the annual reset, an event that takes place every January and resets your Hero Coins.

Lineage II: Server Transfers Stopping Over the Holidays

Lineage II players thinking about changing servers might want to make up their minds soon.

Lineage II Releases Player Appreciate Pack

NCSoft wants to show players how much it appreciates them, and probably apologize for the fact that character registration┬áhas been completely disabled while the team goes in and figures out how to deal with the overwhelming number of bots taking over the game.

Week In Review: Sony Offline Entertainment

I’ve discovered a newfound love for Ultima Forever. Once you carve out the ridiculous cash shop mechanics, get rid of gear degradation, and drop gold keys like they’re candy, the game is a lot of fun to play. It’s almost disappointing that Electronic Arts will be shutting down Ultima Forever on August 29th, but it’s […]

Classic Servers: Another Developer “Gets It.”

Private servers are a very stingy subject in the gaming press. Many developers don’t like to acknowledge them and, honestly, there is at least one of my contacts who will never return my emails after this article just for the act of referencing their existence. MMO Fallout does not condone private servers, nor do we […]
