Before Comic-Con launches its official museum in San Diego, it will host a special exhibit celebrating 20 years of the fantasy MMO EverQuest. The exhibit will be a special 2-day affair featuring not only art and artifacts related to game development, but also special programs and panels. The event will take place at the future home of the Comic-Con Museum in Balboa Park (2131 Pan America Plaza, San Diego — just in case any of you are in the neighborhood).

There will also be a special panel featuring active members of the game’s community. And, of course, there will be plenty of original art, concept work, and other items to view.

After hinting about a new Secret World feature with the monster T-shirt contest and letting players speculate for a week, devs finally revealed their plans during the latest Streaming Ones episode. Called the Museum of the Occult, this new feature is an interesting mix of almost-housing and the long-ago mentioned bestiary. Basically, each player is given the task to repopulate the now empty museum that sits in London. The right to display creatures is earned through collecting lore, kill achievements, and exploration, and different levels of display pedestals allow for different poses. With these poses, players will be able to customize their personal museum space, then invite their friends to come on in and admire it! The livestream also touched on the upcoming Fusang improvements that are expected to hit the test server next week.

Browsing the internet this week, I came across something interesting in the form of Games From Space. And no, this isn’t what you think – some Sci-Fi game studio that’s hell bent on showering us with space games.

To do so the hardware solves complex mathematical equations to support the underlying blockchain system. This is called mining. The better your GPU, the faster you’ll get your game. So how and why would players even consider this? The GPU landscape in recent times has been in turmoil when it comes to pricing and availability because of miners. Miners used to buy up all the supply of graphics cards, so for a while gamers could … [Read more...] about Games From Space: Would You Rent Your GPU To Crypto Miners In Exchange For Free Games?
