Good evening, folks. Omali of MMO Fallout here (who else?) with a short notice for some of you attempting to access the Neverwinter open beta. Some of you have been emailing me asking why you are receiving a “disabled region” notification. As always, I will remind you that I don’t work for any MMO developer and my inbox is not a place to send your technical questions. Perfect World would like to remind you all that the following countries are banned from accessing any game on the Perfect World Entertainment library. In many cases, the ban is due to regional licensing, and in others it is due to administrative reasons. Unfortunately, this also includes IP addresses that are “close to” any of the following countries. China Hong Kong Macau South Korea Taiwan Vietnam Russia Egypt Japan (Only in Rusty Hearts) … [Read more...] about [Perfect World] Help, My Region Is Disabled!

Summer is just around the corner, and you know what that means: sunny skies, sandy beaches, and of course, Pokemon Go safaris. Hot on the heels of 2018’s wildly eventful year, Niantic has a whole smorgasbord of activities planned to get Pokemon Go players out of the house and into the metaphorical — and maybe literal — tall grass to hunt for everyone’s favorite combat critters. The year’s events got off to a start with the first-ever South American safari zone event in Brazil earlier this year, with another safari zone in Singapore coming up in just a few weeks, but the festivities are still just getting started. For starters, this year’s Pokemon Go Fest will be making three stops around the world: It kicks off in Chicago, Illinois, from June 13th to 16th, then hops across the Atlantic to Dortmund, Germany, from July 4th to 7th before concluding with Pokemon Go Fest Asia, the exact dates and location of which are still to be announced.

I can’t tell if Deekay Plus’ headlining shot from Fallout 76 here is that of a gorgeous West Virginia sunrise — or an in-progress nuclear blast. Either way, props for taking a quick screenshot before a light tanning or severe fallout enuses! Of course, he couldn’t resist getting that song stuck back in our heads: “Country roads west virginia take me home country roads country roadssssssssss.” Thank you so much for that. I was pretty excited to see the entries for last week’s screenshot challenge, which called for readers to submit pictures of places in MMOs that are no longer or have changed significantly. Hirku started off that challenge with this: “For this week, here are a few memorable moments from my Wandering Isle adventure in World of Warcraft. I guess this shot kind-of qualifies for the challenge in that–as far as I know–there’s no way for me to go back to this place.” That’s-a big turtle! “Part … [Read more...] about One Shots: Take me home, country roads
Have you ever noticed that while there’s an entire world out there, most all of the MMORPGs we discuss and play tend to either be ones crafted in the USA or imports from China or Korea? We even have a shorthand for this: “western” and “eastern” MMOs. We’re usually not talking about entire hemispheres with these references, but rather about categorizing three countries that are big into the MMORPG business. But what about the rest of the world? Are all of these other countries so uncaring about this genre that they’ve never tried their hand at making an MMO? Of course not; as I’m about to show you, there are plenty of online RPGs that have been made in countries other than China, the USA, and South Korea. It’s just that for various reasons, those three countries ended up fostering concentrations of video game developers who knew how to create these types of games. So let’s take a tour around the world and see if we can’t … [Read more...] about Perfect Ten: Exploring MMORPGs from the far corners of the world
Over time, I have shared many different ways to drive traffic to your website, but as most of us know, traffic from countries such as the U.S. and the U.K. convert better in terms of advertising and affiliate sales. This is because of the “purchasing power” of users from these countries. There are many factors that can help you to get country-specific traffic. For example, ShoutMeLoud is a popular blog in India & also globally. I could actually work on targeting more U.S.-based traffic, but whenever I iterate my blogging business plan, I realize that it’s better to target an Indian audience as it provides less competition and a better supply:demand ratio. There are very few blogs in India that teach the A to Z of blogging. Being in this niche for several years, ShoutMeLoud has an advantage. This reflects my particular case, but I’m sure there are many of you who are blogging for AdSense income, and you may want to target traffic from specific countries (like … [Read more...] about How To Target Country-Specific Website Traffic
