Today’s guest post is from DDOCentral’s Matt, who wanted to give Bio Break’s readership a deeper look into Dungeons and Dragons Online’s Masterminds of Sharn expansion. Thanks Matt! Dungeons and Dragons Online (DDO) released its fourth paid expansion on May 14th, 2019 titled Masterminds of Sharn. The three previous paid expansions for DDO are Menace of the Underdark, released on June 25th, 2012, Shadowfell Conspiracy, released on August 19th, 2013, and Mists of Ravenloft, released on December 6th, 2017. Masterminds of Sharn is the first paid expansion for DDO set in the Eberron universe, which was the original DDO campaign setting when the MMORPG launched in early 2006. After thirteen years, DDO finally leaves the small frontier settlement of Stormreach on the southern jungle continent of Xen’Drik where the adventure began for the great metropolis of Sharn, the City of Towers, located on the central continent of Khorvaire. Sharn is not only the … [Read more...] about Guest Post: DDO Masterminds of Sharn review (part 2)

I first saw George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead when I was around nine or ten years old. That year I absolutely wanted to be a zombie for Halloween. I made it about as far as some green face paint, a little fake blood, and a pair of my jeans with torn out knees. Still, I spent that 31st of October shambling around with my arms extended, hands hanging from limp wrists, groaning “Braaaaains” in my squeaky pre-pubescent voice. My love of zombies has only grown over the years, as has the popularity of zombie culture. There are at least 24 zombie movies by Romero himself, The Walking Dead comic book and subsequent TV show, and of course countless games. Some of these games are passable, but the vast majority are not. The mobile industry in particular seems to love a good zombie game, and a bad zombie game even more. As such, it was with some mild trepidation that I downloaded Undead Nation: Last Shelter for my Pixel. I originally discovered the game through an ad … [Read more...] about Undead Nation: Last Shelter Review
MapleStory 2 is a sequel to the original game with the same title developed by Korean studio – Wizet and published by Nexon. Released in 2015 in the home country of South Korea, MP2 was presented to the rest of the world over three years later. So what we, people leaving outside Seoul, missed out on? Getting started - MappleStory2 Review 2019 The game welcomes us with beautifully animated super deformed – manga style intro. And here we come to the first word of warning – if you don't have the stomach for Asian design/drawing style taken straight from anime, then a visual side of MapleStory 2 may be enough reason to fully reject the game. For the rest of you, who are at least fine with chibi characters and overall cartoony visuals, it will be a nice viewing experience. All the characters are looking good and are well animated. Each of 10 classes and jobs is well represented on respectfully character avatars. The same thing can be said about all of the mobs. … [Read more...] about MappleStory2 Review 2019
What a week in MMOs, right? BlizzCon got dates, we explored Elder Scrolls Online’s upcoming Necromancer class, EVE Online rescinded its accusations against a CSM member, and we got big updates in Guild Wars 2, Neverwinter, and Elite Dangerous. And then there was the City of Heroes drama: The first server was deleted over what turned out to be a hoax about legal action, then Titan Network announced it was negotiating with NCsoft on a lawful server agreement, and then the Homecoming team brought up another new rogue server, Torchbearer, and then still another, Excelsior, and then two more for a total of four servers while all that works itself out. A peak of 8000 people were all trying to log in to play on these servers concurrently this weekend as the game celebrated its 15th birthday. Dang. Read on to catch up with the very best of this week’s MMO news and opinions today as every Sunday in Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review! THIS WEEK’S TOP STORIES Nearly … [Read more...] about MMO Week in Review: Go. Hunt. Kill Skuls.
Dynamic weather matters to you in MMOs, especially sandboxes. But what about in battle royales? When you’re hiding in your bathtub or running for your life, do you really care whether the sun is shining or little droplets of water are falling from the sky? Hope so, because it’s part of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ update 19, currently in testing. So is bullet penetration, zone reworks, and map ping markers. That last is actually the subject of some serious uproar on Reddit from players who believe that being able to mark enemy sightings dumbs the game down and makes it easier for scrubs who don’t know anything about coordination, community, and the maps they’re playing on. PUBG Corp is apparently still working on resolving that. Meanwhile, PUBG Mobile is getting a crossover with Mission Impossible that may strike BR gamers as akin to Fortnite’s Avenger’s mashup.
