We don’t yet know everything we’re going to learn at the Tokyo fan festival about Shadowbringers, but we can be reasonably confident that it will involve a minimum of stuff about the upcoming system changes to Final Fantasy XIV. The stated plan is to unveil all of those in May, and while we can’t be entirely sure that sounds about right. We’ll learn a bit about Gunbreaker and the as-yet-undisclosed additional job (or jobs), but we won’t know all of the way role actions and job actions are changing. That having been said, what we’ve been promised is an evolution from Stormblood rather than a revolution. But having said all of that, I can already think of some system changes that I’d like to see, even if many of them seem rather unlikely with the game’s current design philosophy. So this isn’t meant as a list of demands so much as a wish list. If we get a couple of the things on this list, I’ll consider it a big win.

I was just wondering: If I am a Beastman, and I want to live in Syndesia, is it even possible? To Live and create a town and perform all the usual things I could do if I was on Arboreus, plus being able to raid villages and engage in Pvp? This would probably determine whether i would want to be Beastman or Human. … [Read more...] about Will Beastmen Be Able To Engage In PVP On Syndesia?
Who says ya can’t have holidays in a dead MMO? You can get your Halloween on in City of Heroes right now – or more specifically, in Paragon Chat. As we’ve noted before, Paragon Chat is not intended as a full and complete emulator for the game; it does, however, allow players to log in, roll up characters, play with costumes, visit zones, use movement powers, build bases, and of course, chat. It’s even got some achievements. It just doesn’t have combat or mobs. The in-game automatic portion of the event is live now, according to forumgoers; you’ll be trick-or-treating at various doors throughout the city, collecting salvage as you go, presumably for trade-ins later. There’s also a community-planned Halloween event for Saturday, October 20th this year; expect a hide-and-seek minigame and costume races on the floating island in the sky! … [Read more...] about Halloween 2018 is live in City of Heroes map emu Paragon Chat ahead of October 20 party

MOP reader Oleg suggested today’s Daily Grind in the bowels of the mystified comments under our piece on Entropia Universe on Wednesday. In a nutshell, the Swedish studio MindArk is angling to use the game as a “potential reality where human consciousness can be inserted into virtual characters, making it possible to continue to live on as an Avatar well after their human body has passed” – in other words, to make us immortal, to let us live on in MMO Entropia. The objection, as Oleg and other commenters noted, is that you might not actually want to live forever in Entropia. It’s a neo-capitalist technotopia where you cash in and out of the game to reality and back again. The game practically pioneered pay-to-win. So let’s say MindArk actually pulls off the kind of sci-fi AI it’s saying it’s working on. Would you actually want to do it, and more importantly, which MMORPG would you want to live in – forever? Every morning, the … [Read more...] about The Daily Grind: Which MMORPG would you want to ‘live’ in if you had to live there forever?
