God Eater Online is shutting down in September

Sadly, it does not seem that God Eater Online really talks much about the experience of turning deific entities into snacks. If you were hoping to discover the unparalleled flavor of gods (possibly after they have been deep-fried), you will be disappointed. But not for much longer, as the game has announced that it will be shutting down in September...

Make My MMO: Camelot’s open beta, Fractured’s successful Kickstarter (July 29, 2018)

This week in MMO crowdfunding, anti-grind, PvP-optional MMO sandbox Fractured became the biggest traditional MMORPG to fund on Kickstarter this year (Temtem pulled in more cash but is not so traditional!), coasting past its goal to victory and promising to continue funding off Kickstarter as the months continue. The first leg of alpha is expected to begin by the end of the year,...

One Shots: Dancing in the dark

When the lights go down, the party animals come out, dancing to their dark gods and eating all of the really good snacks before I even get there. What is this, off-brand ginger ale? It’s Canada Dry or I am out of here, and you can just sacrifice whatever to whomever without me! Hikari took this really striking picture from...

The Daily Grind: What would you do if you could reboot any live MMO?

about X hours ago from

It’s kind of crazy to me that Final Fantasy XIV is not only still running but is successful, has a thriving population and a third expansion being announced later this year, and managed to do what so many games would love to do with its successful reboot. Sure, some elements of the original game were lost in the transition, but...

Space survival game ROKH has suspended development

Following ROKH’s early access debut in May 2017, the space survival game faced significant obstacles. It got bogged down in a legal dispute last fall and vied for the attention of its dev team when a new project arose this past spring, though at the time the developers promised they wouldn’t abandon its original game and backers.

City of Titans shows off villain costuming and body parts

Not every villainous group you will fight in City of Titans is exactly human. But the latest art development entry from the team shows off that just because the enemy is nonhuman doesn’t mean players shouldn’t be able to use the costume parts. Indeed, the villainous Apkallu simply provide a good foundation to show off some of the features which...

Ship of Heroes introduces the mixed-race Meltdown, preps for August login test

Superhero and… wealthy mixed-race intergalactic businessman? That’s the intriguing makeup of Ship of Heroes’ Meltdown, a character who is as much a CEO of his own interstellar export company as he is a powered-up crime fighter. He has since relocated to the game’s main setting, the starship Justice, and runs his operations there while helping others tamp down evil. “While...
