Good news, Crowfall fans, the long-awaited patch for the game’s first real campaign releases today! Except it does so without the actual just-referenced first real campaign; instead, the patch has hit the live servers without a “sanctioned” campaign that actually provides rewards and works like a campaign world and all of that. Which makes this the first real pre-first campaign patch, presumably. It might change a font somewhere. That’s a joke, obviously; there are lots of quality-of-life and system improvements in patch 5.8, and the reason for releasing it to the live (well, alpha) servers first is to test for any lingering issues before pulling the trigger on the first full campaign. So the good news is that you’ll be able to enjoy the aforementioned quality-of-life improvements now before the full campaign starts up, but the bad news is… having to wait for the first real campaign a bit longer. That’s actually implied by the good news. … [Read more...] about Crowfall releases patch 5.8, the first campaign patch, without the first campaign
One of the many criticisms leveled against Fallout 76 has been its lack of endgame content, but one dedicated player has decided to be the change he wants to see in the post-apocalyptic world by becoming a raid boss himself. The player, who goes by the name SatelliteJedi, went around razing player camps and generally marauding until he had built up a sizeable bounty of 1000+ caps on his head, then he took to the Fallout 76 subreddit to challenge any daring heroes to come and take it from him. SatelliteJedi holed himself up in a locked room, guarded by a series of nefarious traps and a group of friends/collaborators who served as trash–err, body guards, where he awaited those with the gall to answer his challenge. Many players made attempts to claim SatelliteJedi’s bounty — including one particularly enterprising player who decided to skip the formalities and simply nuke his headquarters — but only a couple have managed to succeed thus far. Although the methods … [Read more...] about Fallout 76’s endgame is so dull that players are appointing themselves raid bosses

We have been talking a lot about what we’ve been playing this year and what we’re looking forward to in 2019 and beyond, but what about the music that has contributed so much to the soul of the MMORPGs that we love? This year has been a great one for new soundtrack releases as well as discoveries of past year’s albums, and I’ve enjoyed a full 12 months of listening through track after track of some of the best, worst, and most mediocre of MMO tunes. As is the custom here on MOP, I get this one opportunity to grant awards as I see fit with absolutely no group consensus whatsoever. In today’s 2018 MMO Video Game Music Awards, I’ll be handing out honors to nine games that truly deserve some recognition with their composition. Put on your headphones and discover the winners below! In going through scores and scores (pun intended) of MMO albums, I’m always open to being pleasantly surprised by soundtracks that were far better than I had expected. … [Read more...] about Massively OP’s 2018 MMO Video Game Music Awards
