Wasting Time: The Designers Curse: Chapter One

Today I played The Designers Curse: Chapter One. The game is available for free on Steam and it’ll clock in around thirty minutes of gameplay before you’re out and done. The game is meant to be the first chapter in a story line that will be roughly a buck for further chapters with each clocking […]

EA Struggles With the Perception They Are Bad Guys

You may or may not know this, but EA has a bit of an image problem. They are consistently denied awards by their industry peers, they are booed at award ceremonies, and consumers won’t stop bringing up their past. Gamesindustry.biz has an article talking about the EA Originals program, where the massive publisher has been […]

Chaturday: The Seeming Lack of Non-Trolling Offensive Games

I’ve been thinking long and hard about Valve’s new policy regarding offensive games and how this could negatively affect their user base, by which I mean I haven’t been giving it much thought at all. My attention, however, has turned to the idea that Steam will be flooded by horrifying, bullying, aggressive, abusive, games designed […]

It Came From the Xbox Game Pass: Layers of Fear

  Layers of Fear was part of the Games with Gold service back in March, so if you’ve been a Live subscriber and kept up on activating your monthly titles, you already have this in your library. I activated my copy in March and haven’t given it a try because, I will admit, there is […]

[NM] Sorry, ODD Games, Retroactive Defamation Isn’t Real

Here at MMO Fallout, I have always taken the position that a developer’s previous work does not prohibit them from fixing what is broken or improving in future products. While we would like to see a world where games stop launching in a barely functional state, it stands to reason that any game can go […]

Greed Monger Officially Dead…Again

Greed Monger has once again been cancelled, leaving everyone who pledged the over ninety grand out of luck, again. The MMO was Kickstarted to the tune of ninety grand, only to face development issues and eventual cancellation under Jason Appleton and Electric Crow Games. Appleton handed over the title to ex-employee Jason Proctor who has, […]

Divergence Online Slips Back Into Obscurity

Divergence Online is an on-again, off-again MMO looking to replace the defunct MMO Star Wars Galaxies. But while Star Wars Galaxies still has thousands of people playing it, albeit on private servers, the first couple of months in early access seem to have left Divergence Online in the dust. This weekend brought in a peak […]

[Column] As Far As Greedmonger Goes, No.

Greed Monger is back! Yes, that Greed Monger. The one that was funded on a dream and a promise, by developers that had neither the funding nor experience in order to create said vision, only to crash and go under to the tune of $100 million in backer funds. The one by Jason Appleton who threatened […]

Divergence Online Ultimatum: No More Free Keys

Divergence Online is an upcoming hardcore sandbox MMO by developer Stained Glass Llama, dubbed a spiritual successor to pre-CU Galaxies and set to hit Steam as soon as Valve hits the launch button. SGL hopes to bring Divergence back to the glory days of sandbox games, one that predates Youtubers and streamers using their alleged […]

Community: Another Indie Dev Meltdown

(Editor’s note: minor language) When it comes to indie development, I consider myself to be a big fan of the genre. After all, gaming would look monumentally different if the small, poorly funded developers of the early days, and even those of the modern days, didn’t throw caution into the wind and give ideas a […]
