Those of you who keep tabs on the industry will remember that Entropia Universe turns 16 this year, meaning that not only can the game now drive in most states, but it retains its discount card along with the other long-lasting MMOs. As it goes, I had to know what their secret was. Thankfully MindArk was kind enough to let me chat with their CEO Henrik Nel to answer my numerous questions. The full interview is below, and once you are finished I highly recommend checking out Entropia Universe for free. MMO Fallout: Entropia Universe launched in 2003, which in the gaming industry is basically three lifetimes ago. What is the secret formula that has kept the game running so long? Henrik Nel: If we told you it wouldn’t be a secret would it? We are very proud about our real cash economy. Having the game being built around it has created something truly unique which can’t be found anywhere else in the gaming industry. We have achieved a level of trust after 16 years where … [Read more...] about MindArk Talks: Entropia Universe 16th Anniversary
Details on new tax plan
I have backed four projects on Kickstarter so far. Three are in the price range of 5 to 25 € (give or take a bit as I’m too lazy to look up the conversion rates from $ etc.). The fourth was AU$ 129 (roughly $ 92) plus taxes and delivery ($ 33). This is three different currencies now. But let’s just say that it was a lot of money that I spent on Hand of Fate: Ordeals and I was nervous about the result. Hand of Fate: Ordeals is the board game version of the Hand of Fate PC games. Estimated delivery date was November 2017 which was officially pushed back during the campaign already as they reached their stretch goals and knew that these would take more time to develop. Thankfully, the company that made the board game (Rule & Make) gave regular updates to inform us of the process. When delivery started at the end of November / beginning of December 2018, I got a bit anxious as people said that the miniatures were really bad. Also, there were some troubles with the … [Read more...] about Kickstarted board game: Hand of Fate Ordeals
Bless Online’s media event and pricing reveal last week may not have gone entirely to plan. You’ll recall that Neowiz announced at the time that it’d be charging $40 for the standard edition of the game, on up to $200 for the collector’s edition, with each package containing headstart and varying chunks of premium membership time chunked together. That’s what set the community off: It was the first notice that the game would definitely include a premium sub with its early access. The studio also didn’t fully detail what people spending up to $200 would be buying, nor how it would balance all of that with its anti-pay-to-win stance. Neowiz has taken the feedback to heart, however, and released a new plan overnight. The important parts are that Neowiz has cut the $200 pack down to $149, there’s no longer any “customer service priority” accompanying the packs, there’s an actual preview of some of the exclusive pack skins, … [Read more...] about Bless outlines its new box price and sub plan, which it does not want you to call a sub
As a newbie or pro, when ever you start a new website one of the biggest dilemma is picking the best Webhosting for your next project. When it comes to picking up the best-rated Web hosting companies, we are bombarded with too many options. There are many online websites which compare best Webhosting providers, but in the end we still stay in dilemma to picking up the best one. An online presence is not like a well-organized dinner party…there is no such thing as a ‘perfect’ Web-host. There are hosts that will come very close and offer very substantial services, but no one host will have everything. The important factor, when finding a host, is not to get misguided by irrelevant features that don’t concern your current or future hosting requirements. You should be concentrating on finding a provider that combines high quality packages with acceptable cost, has the resources required to offer your site optimal performance, and consistently excels in customer … [Read more...] about Guide To Select the Best of The Best?
