When I read that Runic Games, the developing company of the Torchlight series didn’t exist anymore back in November 2017, I was rather sad. This meant, after all, that there would be no more Torchlight games. Their last game was Hob. An adventure game with a new IP and more of the puzzle kind. It’s still on my wishlist, but I haven’t bought it yet. Source: https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/torchlight-frontiers/media So imagine my joy when I heard about the announcement of Torchlight Frontiers! I literally squealed and I may have even thrown my hands in the air. :p The game is in development by Echtra Games which employs some of the people who made Torchlight I and II (and was founded by Max Schaefer one of the founders of Runic Games and Blizzard North). <iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/5v9WNBw2JKk” frameborder=”0″ allow=”autoplay; encrypted-media” … [Read more...] about The Return of Torchlight!

Artificial scarcity or necessary action? Either way, fans are going to have a hard time securing a founder’s pack for Nexon’s upcoming MapleStory 2, as the studio announced that the packs have “sold out” for the rest of the Closed Beta 2 test. Nexon only just started selling founder’s packs on July 17th, although it did say ahead of time that there would only be “an extremely limited amount” of these packs that also provided closed beta access. The founder’s packs ranged from $25 to $100 in cost and provided extras such as unicorn mounts, cosmetics, and a month of premium club membership. The studio said that there is still hope for everyone who is dying to spend money on the game: “Those that have already purchased a founder’s pack will still be able to upgrade their packages, however we will not be accepting new purchases until a later date. Keep an eye on the MapleStory 2 website or social media feeds to learn more about … [Read more...] about MapleStory 2 somehow ‘sells out’ of founder’s packs
DAY 2 Player: @jarira Well, Day 2 started off on a rather inauspicious note: @jarira: “I’m ready to play now!”Me: “Sure, go head. I’ll be right there.” *logs in, types /invite Saalua* Two minutes pass… WoW: Saalua has declined your group invitation! *retypes /invite Saalua* Another two minutes pass… WoW: Saalua has declined your group invitation!Me: WTF? *Sends direct message to Jarira* “What’s wrong, are you not past the loading screen yet?”OMG some random bitch keeps trying to invite me to their party! “Wha-? That’s ME, you fool!” Clearly, a quick lesson on how to use the social window and to add friends was in order. She’ll have no excuse to forget my name ever again. Amazingly, we managed to get through the rest of our play session with no major problems. We only had some slight issues with combat, when she kept trying to use her dagger on her enemies — *cue the exasperated groans that … [Read more...] about Project WoW Noob: Day 2 – Questing…FINALLY!
I felt that there could not be a blog post series about housing (with Lord of the Rings Online, Aion and Rift) without Everquest 2. Even though I have never really gotten into the game, the reason I tried it out in the first place was the housing. So, I’m very honored that Rakuno offered to write a guest post about this game’s housing as he’s been playing it for a very long time. Also, have a good look at the gallery at the end of this posting. 132 screenshots showing off the housing in Everquest 2! If you like what you see here, please also be sure to check out his blog! *** Whenever the discussion of housing comes up in an existing MMO or one in development, Everquest 2’s housing system is often mentioned. There are good reasons for that, as housing in Everquest 2 is certainly one of the most feature rich of the current available MMOs. It is one of the features of the game that has been around since its launch in 2004 and has been improving ever since. … [Read more...] about Housing in MMOs: Everquest 2
