The Daily Grind: What’s your favorite non-combat ability in an MMO?

Combat abilities in MMOs are big, flashy, and usually leave a mangled corpse. That’s why they’re there. But sometimes you wind up with non-combat abilities that are just plain fun to use. Everyone always loved White Mage teleports in Final Fantasy XI, even when there were faster ways to get from place to place; they just look cool, a bit...

Little Orbit on Fallen Earth: ‘There is something special here worth rebuilding’

Could the acquisition of GamersFirst — including APB Reloaded and Fallen Earth — be what actually saves these games? Players of these long-abandoned MMOs are holding onto a fresh hope that Little Orbit is going to actually give these titles support, marketing, and development. For the first time in literally years there is movement on the Fallen Earth front. New...

World of Tanks: Mercenaries abolishes loyalties on consoles this month

“No more loyalties. No more rules.” Forget what you might have known about World of Tanks’ structure and gameplay format, because Wargaming is about ready to change everything up with this month’s Mercenaries. The console-exclusive expansion pack, which is arriving on June 26th, will plunge players into a lawless, free-for-all environment as they fight in a new mercenaries faction. Mercs...

Wild Terra spinoff Corrupted hits Steam early access wearing Wild Terra’s favorite shirt

Heading into Steam early access today is new isometric game called Corrupted, and if it looks familiar, that’s because it’s from Juvty Worlds, which also operates PvP sandbox Wild Terra. The new game appears to utilize Wild Terra’s world and graphics; the sole user review active as I type this rather uncharitably calls it an “asset-flip” and more of a “wave...

Superman keeps on dying in DC Universe Online

I cannot the the only person who finds it humorously weird that up-and-coming heroes in DC Universe Online keep grabbing costume elements from famous superheroes and villains. You think that Batman and the Joker feel a little unnerved that so many people are running around wearing their clothes? At least Superman isn’t saying anything, because he’s dead. Well, deader than...

Now the series is back with Star Control Origins, which is in development by Stardock....

World of Warcraft gives us a comic-based tour of the Windrunner family reunion

Sometimes it’s debatable whether or not World of Warcraft needs more of its lore in-game. Obviously, the newest Battle for Azeroth lead-up comic focused on the reunion between the Windrunner sisters is relevant lore; the return of Alleria and dealing with that particular tangle is important. But it’d be hard to really have it in quest format. “A journey and...

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds plans longer embargos for its crates on the Steam market

Getting a crate in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is meant to be a reward for the player, but it’s also frequently meant something to resell on the marketplace. However, that’s been rather more impossible with the newest crate, which was added to the game on May 13th and still hasn’t been unlocked for the Steam Marketplace. The developers have announced that it...
