A few weeks ago we teased newly announced MMO Eternal Magic for offering a beauty contest “for the girls,” which, OK, we all know what they’re really up to, wink wink nudge nudge. But that game has been one-upped this week by League of Maidens, which bills itself as an “online real-time action superhero RPG […] featuring beautiful maidens with guns and super powers.” And butts. And boobs. Yeah it’s mostly butts and boobs. Very oddly shaped boobs. Um, none of this is safe for work, just to be clear. And it has a Patreon as of today, which is why it’s in this column against my better judgment. What is happening. I am deceased. Meanwhile, Playcraft successfully funded on Kickstarter, Albion Online has continued to struggle with DDOS attacks, Ashes of Creation updated players on the state of development, Shroud of the Avatar dropped R66, and Ship of Heroes teased leveling mechanics. Plus, Destiny’s Sword launched on Kickstarter! … [Read more...] about Make My MMO: Boobs don’t work that way, League of Maidens

Today’s Star Wars: The Old Republic update is a closer look at the inner workings of the crew skill system. After last week’s announcement about crafting, I have to say I was anticipating an update like this. But what I didn’t expect was how informative this update is. Pardon me, I’m too used to SWTOR information trickling out to us week-by-week at a slug-like pace, so it came at a bit of a shock when almost all of my questions about the crafting system were answered in a single update. What I understand is that we have 3 main categories of crafting skills: Gathering Skills, Crafting Skills, and Mission Skills. 3 Crew Skills slots are also available to your team to train in from among these categories. You can fill all three up with Gathering Skills if you wish, but that would also mean no more slots available for anything else from the other categories. Crafting Skills, on the other hand, are very specialized so you’ll be able to devote only one slot to … [Read more...] about Why Don’t You Handle This?
I’d like to think that I’m kind of a healthy gamer. While MMOs take a lot of time, the nice thing is that their downtime can lead to forming bonds, or give you time to exercise. Augmented reality games can give you both at once, especially Pokemon Go, since it’s the best-known ARG we have (and the mountains of merchandise make it easier to stand out as a fellow player). However, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows, and I’m not just talking about game mechanics that have plagued Niantic games since at Ingress. I remember playing that title and thinking, “Man, this game is dangerous! There’s no way they’ll just clone this for POGO, right?” And yet, here we are. But I can’t put all the blame on Niantic, especially after my time with ARG competitor Maguss. Some things just seem inherent to the genre. The usual suspects Let’s start with the harshest of realities that ARG players face but … [Read more...] about The Soapbox: Three augmented reality game problems (most) MMOs don’t have – and one thing they do so much better
It was in March 2009 that I started using AdSense, and since then it’s a part of my blog monetization technique. In first 5 years I have earned about 2.2 million INR with AdSense, and realized no matter how many AdSense alternatives we talk about, AdSense is by far one of the best contextual and highest paying ad network for any blogger. I have already shared some of the working tips to increase Adsense revenue but as I mentioned, Adsense is very strict about AdSense TOS, and you have to take care of certain things to stop violating AdSense policies. We all know, getting Adsense approval is not that easy and we need to do many things to keep our AdSense account active. Recently, I got an Email from Adsense team saying “Adsense serving has been disabled on one of my site” and I realize it’s the right time to update this post and make new AdSense publishers aware of Adsense policies and things to avoid, which may lead to account ban. Little out of … [Read more...] about Don’t Want To Get Your AdSense Account Banned? Read These Guidelines
