Here’s an indie MMORPG that you may not have known about before this week. Legion: The Eternal War is a small title that’s been in development for a while by Nexus Division, but as of late the project seems to have picked up pace. The setting of the game involves a world where formerly united Elves and humans have become bitter enemies thanks to the introduction of magic by some sinister crystals into the world. “The game will be filled with entertaining stories, rewarding progression systems, and refined mechanics,” the team wrote. “All of this is presented to produce a memorable experience highlighted by social interaction and nail-biting tension.” The dev team is staking the game’s future on systems such as player housing, an expansive fantasy world, PvP, character customization, a wide array of magic, wars with guilds, and alliances. Last December, the team showed off a few prototypes of the different biomes that players might find in the … [Read more...] about Legion: The Eternal War’s evil magic pits Elves against Humans

Why do you play MMORPGs? What keeps you questing through these ever-growing worlds? I think a lot of us might answer like Zyrusticae in Blade and Soul here, as we enjoy inhabiting and exploring virtual fantasy worlds. “See, this is the sort of thing I play MMORPGs for,” Zyrusticae writes. “That sense of ‘place.’ Being somewhere else, even if it’s only behind a computer screen. Old shots, yes, but still some of my favorites just for that. It’s a very pleasant feeling, really.” Will you find your sense of place in the following player screenshots? Let’s find out! Namtubb is getting taking a break in Warframe to get in some puppy dog time: “I think this pic might elicit some emotions from people, emotions like, ‘Aww what a cute space puppy!’ or ‘Someone call the space police, someone’s choking a space puppy!’ What we’re actually seeing is my first ever space puppy, Khana, and me petting … [Read more...] about One Shots: A sense of place
we are all tired of answering trivial questions: when is the release date? How much is it? will there be localization? and so on starting with alpha version we all start posting their builds skills and it will clog offtopic So I propose to ask Specter and Prometheus to create a new section for the theme "FAQ&build" it will be attached FAQ, developer tips and there we will be able to spread their variations of builds and explain why they are relevant. You may ask-why not in the pre-alpha version? because the pre-alpha version of the game has an embargo, which when the breaksof information about the game breaks the contract with the user and I think somehow punishes ( I do not know what the developers will do with this man). So I want to raise the survey : do we need such a section with themes or not, as specter told me that users, if they want, they will be publish it off in offtopic, but I believe that then the offtopic section will be a trashcan with too different things. If you … [Read more...] about New topic section for alpha1 continue + (RUS)
In the earliest days of Final Fantasy XI, you couldn’t alt-tab without crashing the game. Thus, the Windower program, a little add-on designed to force the game to allow alt-tabbing like basically anything else in the world. The add-on was also disallowed, but the developers eventually adopted a “don’t be an idiot” approach to it; you have native window support now, but if you still want to use it for its other functionality, just don’t shout about it in-game and you’ll probably be fine. Of course, it’s hardly the only unofficial modification that affects a game’s functionality; multiboxing in World of Warcraft, various map add-ons for City of Heroes, the DPS trackers for Final Fantasy XIV. Every game has stuff that’s not technically allowed, but isn’t any sort of cheating tool; it’s just there to improve your life as a player. So have you ever run unauthorized MMO modifications? Not cheating tools, those are a different … [Read more...] about The Daily Grind: Have you ever run unauthorized MMO modifications?
