Runes of Magic had admittedly fallen way off my radar over the last while, right up until our own MMO Cartographer dipped back into the game this past weekend for a check-up. But as it turns out, RoM has been busily updating away in this the year of its 10th anniversary. Most recently – this week, in fact – Runewaker dropped a crafting festival for the denizens of Taborea. Oh yeah, this is my kind of party! “Every time this season comes around, the craftsmen work tirelessly to show off their crafts in order to fulfill the Craftsman Spirit that has passed down over the years. These craftsmen who are usually busy working are even busier during this time… Many events are waiting for you, come and help the craftsmen and enjoy the festival and the flea market!” Players should head over to Silverspring and Thunderhoof Hills to start the fun, just note that the reward NPCs are in the capitals. Notably, the latest patch also includes a spate of bug fixes both for … [Read more...] about 10-year-old Runes of Magic’s crafting festival has begun

Play ArcheAge for freeArcheAge has made it to four years here in the west, and Trion has big plans – including an event and a sub sale – to celebrate the occasion. “Ringing in ArcheAge’s birthday, players will be able to partake in the Water Gun Festival Event, where they can compete up to three times a day in order to earn Kyrios Badges and Hiram Infusions.

Are you missing City of Heroes this week, what with the 14th anniversary of its launch and all? We are too. Earlier this month, we wrote about one of the many brilliant homages to the game, Super Entity Game Server (aka SEGS). But instead of being a brand-new game in the City of Heroes spirit or a combat-free (and relatively safe from legal action) client like Paragon Chat, SEGS is a straight up emulator that intends to restore the whole shebang. And apparently, the team is hunting for more folks to help speed up development. “We want to extend a invitation to those who have some C++ coding skills as we head towards our second release, and would be interested in volunteering to help out,” the SEGS team told Massively OP by email this weekend. “While the internet is a big place, it’s also not as easy to get a message out. Hence why we’re making sure we offer this to anyone who could be interested. As for people who have no coding experience, there is room … [Read more...] about Missing 14-year-old City of Heroes?
