The Daily Grind: Which MMO gives you the best choices for character growth?

Between the talent panel and the new Heart of Azeroth interface, World of Warcraft’s dev team certainly has embraced the concept of streamlined “interesting choices” when it comes to building characters. It’s not the worst idea, to give players a choice between two or more attractive options for character growth and forcing them to pick just one. But it is...

The Stream Team: Returning to stomp Conan Exiles’ giant slug

So just about every time that Massively OP’s MJ has gone to the first Conan Exiles dungeon, something happens so that she cannot exactly complete it. (Go go friendly fire!) This time she’s sure it will be different. She’s ready to delve back in and stomp that giant slug. What could go wrong? Tune in live at 9:00 p.m. to...

Betawatch: Ashes of Creation pushes forward with publisher talk (August 24, 2018)

It’s good to see that after the somewhat oddly-named “alpha zero” test phase, Ashes of Creation is planning to move on to alpha one on September 1st. Unfortunately for that particular news story, the game managed to irritate people shortly thereafter by announcing My.com as its publisher in Europe, which raised some hackles. The game addressed that promptly, but you...

This stat reroll event is being paired up...

PlanetSide 2 disables anomalies while Daybreak figures out what their deal is

Let’s check back in with the war efforts over at PlanetSide 2 today. Daybreak’s pushed out a hotfix this week that disabled anomalies while the studio works on clearing up “some remaining issues.” Silly anomalies. Never behaving the way you’d like them to. The hotfix also made some changes to how squads work: “We’ve embraced beacon access for all players...

Anthem’s beta is admittedly a demo, according to BioWare

The use of the term “beta” has morphed a lot over the years, moving from its original definition as a test phase to being what amounts to a demo of an otherwise finished game. So it’s actually kind of a good thing that Anthem’s game director Jonathan Warner outright said during Gamescom that the title’s beta is basically going to...

The Stream Team: Queen vs Necromancer in Elder Scrolls Online

Massively OP’s MJ may not have the newest DLC, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t adventuring in The Elder Scrolls Online. She’s recently been asked by Queen Ayrenn to help her clear out the ancestral chambers where a traitor necromancer is hiding and disrupting her ritual. Clearing out a tomb? Sounds like a perfect Friday afternoon activity! Join us live...
