Over the past couple of months, we have covered V4 (Victory For) quite extensively, so do read up on those articles if you haven’t already done so. Last evening, publisher Nexon and developer NAT Games held a “Premium Showcase” media event to announce more game details and its launch schedule. We have talked about most of the features prior, and some of them have been re-emphasized during the event. We will be brief with this, so read on! ● Inter Server World To explain simply, it means all servers are linked and connected, and players may be connected to any 1 server as required. However, each player and guild will still be connected to a “main server” as there will be server vs server PVP action. These details will be displayed to other players. It is something akin to worlds within worlds, while all being connected together to function simultaneously. Through the inter server feature, players will be able to get more EXP and benefits, although the … [Read more...] about – Key highlights from Premier Showcase media event

Sony’s decision to shut down several online servers for some past PlayStation 3 games on October 25th is shaping up to be a sunset apocalypse of sorts. In addition to taking Twisted Metal and PlayStation All-Stars offline-only, the move will effectively end the 10-year-old Warhawk, as it only featured an online mode. Read on for a roundup of other smaller MMO news stories and videos from this past week in this edition of The MOP Up (and if you don’t see a news story that we should have, drop us a tip)! The Prosperous Universe team is upping its marketing game and wrapping up the first of five planned phases to get this scifi sandbox ready for launch. World of Tanks started to sell branded products, from keyboards to headsets, at retail stores in Europe and online. All of these items also come with in-game goodies. [Source: press release] Update 34 for Conan Exiles has wound its way over to the PlayStation 4 with the new Jhebbal Sag religion and plenty of … [Read more...] about The MOP Up: Sony’s PlayStation 3 sunset apocalypse
I’ve noticed my gaming tastes changing over the months/years. Currently my MMO playing is ebbing while other games are not. I still do play though. I’m taking a break from SWL because I was stuck on a ridiculous blocking storyline quest and can’t advance without passing it. Whoever thought that was a good idea is… well they’re just wrong. I log into LoTRO a few times a week to grab daily rewards and quest a bit. But that makes for glacial progress and thus Spessartina, my hobbit minstrel, is still in the Rivendell/Trollshaws regions and a few levels away from starting the next storyline quest. Scarlatina, my hobbit warden, is likewise still in the Lone Lands. That’s fine though, I always do enjoy coming back to LoTRO and playing a bit. In ESO, I decided to start a new char after migrating to the PS4. In order to play something different, I picked stamina nightblade. Since Redguards get racial stamina bonuses, I went with that. I’m not too far … [Read more...] about Changing Game Tastes

Outdoor cat has officially been fed so I can now sit down and start trying to compose my feelings about Anthem Demo weekend number two. The first “VIP Demo” weekend was for folks who had pre-ordered the game and I will assume a certain batch of influencers that were brought to that special EA event to record footage. You can scroll through my thoughts about that weekend in a post I made last week, but for me and most of the AggroChat crew it was a buggy and often times unplayable mess. However there was enough good there laying just underneath the covers to make me interested and quite honestly miss playing the game. So while I was not on nearly as much as I could have been… I played a significant amount of Anthem this weekend. I managed to get in a Stronghold… this games version of a Strike and spent a significant amount of time just roaming around and doing World Events and the little mini-dungeons that are available off the … [Read more...] about Anthem Demo Weekend Two
