This morning I am talking about Assassin’s Creed and there might be minor spoilers here and there. Be warned. We’ve talked about this a bit in the past, of how in general Assassin’s Creed has not been my jam. I tried playing the fourth game in the series on Playstation 4 and the second game on PC, and while I definitely enjoyed parts of it… there were always missions that frustrated me… specifically the ones that involved racing awkwardly along the tops of buildings. Assassin’s Creed Origins however I largely picked up on a whim because it looked so damned cool… and I caught it on a holiday sale a year ago. I’ve always been a huge fan of Egypt mythology and I thought it would be cool to see what the world might have looked like at that time.

We have spent a lot of time — perhaps more than is prudent — pining over MMOs that have closed their doors. But I don’t think we’ve ever discussed game studios that we miss.

Do you ever look back in time and say to yourself, “Boy, I really miss that studio!”? Do you have fond memories for how the team used to function and communicate, or how there were specific devs who were active and helped to elevate that studio to a whole new level? Which MMO studio do you miss the most right now in 2019? Which would you love to have back as it once was? Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a … [Read more...] about The Daily Grind: Which old MMO studio do you miss the most?

The Elder Scrolls Online will be heading to Elsweyr, the home of the Khajiit, for the next chapter in the epic fantasy MMORPG. “[. . .] in this new adventure, you can fully experience the home of Tamriel’s beloved cat people. In Elsweyr, you can traverse both fertile grasslands and scorching deserts, interact with moon-sugar farmers and wandering nomads, or confront merciless Imperial occupiers and roaming bandits. In this new Chapter, you can truly dive into the life, history, culture, and mythology of the Khajiit and their homeland.” Dragons will also be making their first appearance in the game when Elsweyr rolls out, along with the highly-awaited Necromancer class.
