Explore the systems you'll use to build exactly the character you want to play as you explore Tamriel in The Elder Scrolls Online

The world is full! Now you can get a 1017 error when trying to purchase the game.

Straight from Square-Enix:

"Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn, we are currently experiencing extremely long wait times for users to be able to log in and play. As a temporary measure, we will halt sales of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A REALM REBORN’s digital download products so we can accommodate all of those wishing to play. We are working to expand our server capacity in the coming days."

Well, that's interesting... looks like they've sold more copies than they can handle on the server side. I'm glad they're doing this so all of the pre-orders can hopefully get in and play until they work this out enough to continue selling.

Marvel fans get ready for your MMO.

By: dragonkiss83 May 31, 2012 | 2 Comments

I heard about it last year, still no release date, but we have some screens.

Last year I heard there was a Marvel MMO coming out eventually thanks to Gamasutra and got hype with almost no details.

Check this link if you want to see round 1 http://gouki.com/Story/Details/marvel-universe-mmo-will-be-free-to-play

 

Here is a look at alt. costumes from the Hulk (Planet Hulk) and Spider-man.

Oh look what is that almost dead center on the screen?  Deadpool!  Kind of hard to tell with the others but at the bottom that looks a lot like Northstar or even Quiksilver.  And it could just be wishful thinking, but the guy to the far left in the line with Deadpool looks Gambit like to me.  (check the source link for the screen shot, it doesn't want to cooperate here)

And no surprise there is Spider-man.

And a Hawkeye teaser from the facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/marvelheroes

With a quick look Emma Frost (White Queen), Storm, Colossus, Black Widow, Ms. Marvel, Cyclops, Thor, Captain America, Thing, Wolverine, Iron Man, and I even saw Magneto playable in the video.

So already my hype is building back up.  And E3 is so close maybe we'll see some more. Maybe a special request to check it Goukijones?

They say they are using the Unreal 3 engine. Not exactly cutting edge, but not the worse choice out there.

We will be playing as major Marvel characters, but we will be able to customize them based on their various costumes. They are including Squirrel Girl and Cable, so they are reaching into the reseres instead of just an Avenger like line up. Randomly generated environments are not my favorite, but I can overlook that.  They'll be Savage  Land, Hell's Kitchen (guess we'll see Daredevil), Midtown Manhattan, the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning  and Mutant Town.  

Brian Michael Bendis is officailly on as the writer. So that is comforting, they could have tried to put any clown in the driver seat.  

And with Gazillion Entertainment behind it they have the experience of Diablo and Diablo 2 behind them.  Not feeling as half-assed as I feared in the beginning. 

And here is there official page http://www.marvelheroes.com/

Let's not forget the reveal trailer.

My source this time around was http://nerdreactor.com/2012/05/22/marvel-heroes-freetoplay-mmo-announced/

So there you have it.  Vote, Share, Comment, and don't be a jimmy!

 

It might not be until 2013 or something, but Bethesda may have begun or is just getting started on a Fallout MMO. Read this press release about the lawsuit.

This just came over from Bethesda and I thought you Jimmys might like to read it. This letter is pretty interesting, it describes a lot of the lawsuit and turmoil over a Fallout MMO. Good news is that Bethesda owns ALL of the rights now and they can make one if they want.

Bioware Sends Out Weekend Beta Invites

By: jalexbrown Nov 10, 2011 | 12 Comments

With just a little over a month until release, Bioware is sending out invites for a weekend beta test - apparently a lot, too!

 

If you've registered with the Star Wars: The Old Republic site and said you want to be a beta tester, now would be a great time to check your inbox.  Bioware has been sending out beta invites over the last few days that will be good this weekend, November 11-13.  I got one, and a friend of mine also got one.  What are the odds if it's not a massive test?  It's mostly likely a stress test to see how the servers handle a higher load.  The game will be running off the East Coast servers and will only be available to US citizens.  (I'm not sure if you have to live in the Eastern Standard Time zone to qualify...if you've received an invite and you're in another time zone, let me know.)

Not 6 months after being announced that Lego Universe is free to play, Lego Universe announces they are turning off the servers. Will history repeat itself with DCUO.

I'm a huge lego fan. I don't build for fun. I've played most of the Lego Star Wars, well when they were cool like 10 years ago. News come today that the Lego Universe MMO will be shutting down on January 31, 2012 at Midnight. What? You didn't even know there was a Lego MMO? Oh well that probably didn't help.

Email:

Hello Adventurer, today we are very sad to announce that LEGO® Universe will be closing on January 31, 2012. This was a very difficult decision to make, but unfortunately LEGO Universe has not been able to attract the number of members needed to keep the game open.

We realize how sad this will make the many players who have enjoyed LEGO Universe and we are committed to providing open communication with both kids and parents as we transition through this difficult time. We understand this is a challenging change and apologize for not being able to give parents forewarning before the general announcement.

We are thankful to have had the opportunity to share this adventure with an amazing community of players. We hope you will continue to enjoy LEGO Universe for the last few months. As a thank you, if you are a paying subscriber on December 31, 2011, we will provide you the full game for the final month for free.

Again, we want to thank the fantastic community of players who made LEGO Universe such a vibrant, fun and creative experience.

Sincerely,
The LEGO Universe Team

The Details:

The game will be turned off on January 31, 2012 at midnight (EST).
All current subscribers (1, 6 or 12 month plans) who still have active subscriptions on December 31 will receive a refund for any remaining game time remaining after December 31 as well as free play from January 1, 2012 until January 31.
For example, if you purchased a 6-month subscription on September 1, 2011 (which would expire on February 29, 2012), you would be refunded $16.66 for the 2 months following December 31.
We will begin processing all refunds on February 1, 2012. All refunds will be made to the credit card used for the original subscription.
If your subscription expires before December 31 you will need to purchase an additional 1 month subscription by December 31 in order to get the free game play in January (again, any unused game time as of December 31 will be refunded.)
LEGO Universe game cards can only be used until December 1st 2011. Unused game cards after December 1st can be converted to LEGO Shop @Home gift cards for the same value.
Please note: Details on how to convert unused game cards will be posted on December 1.
You can continue to enjoy the free to play zone until January 31, 2012 but your last chance to convert to a paying subscription is December 31, 2011.

Chinese Prisoners Forced to Play MMO's?

By: DragonKiss83 May 26, 2011 | 6 Comments

China may need to work on their punishments.

From a country that has had some brutal treatment of people, this throws me off.  Maybe if they were forcing them to play some crappy games.  If you don't earn enough you get beaten, but in most cases you're going to get beaten anyhow.  About 300 prisoners have been forced to play 12 hours at a time.  Chinese officials say it's not happening because they wouldn't allow the inmates to have contact with the outside world.

What do you think about this?  When you consider how much money people have made by selling items and characters in various MMO's it makes sense.  The other manual labor that prisoners are forced to do can be much harder on them so in comparison this really isn't so bad.  Would you rather be digging holes, picking up trash in the sun, or playing MMO's?

source http://massively.joystiq.com/2011/05/26/chinese-prisoners-forced-to-farm-mmos-for-cash/

Keep in mind the prisoners aren't getting any of the money, but prisoners here in the US only make small amounts for the work they do.  And they are getting beaten, so there is definite mistreatment there.  I wonder where they came up with the idea to do this?  Do any of you doubt they are doing it?  Should it be adapted here, you know minus the beatings?

Marvel Universe MMO will be free to play

By: DragonKiss83 Apr 29, 2011 | 7 Comments

Marvel must have seen the epic fail from DC

Thank you Gamasutra for some good news.  http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/34357/Gazillion_Confirms_Marvel_Universe_MMO_As_Free_To_Play_Reveals_Writer.php

PC gamers can celebrate, console gamers still don't have a confirmation on the game though.  Gazillion is letting Secret Identity develope it.  But they say it is at least a year from release.  They also mentio no create a character so we will be playing as the big names of Marvel.  Brian Michael Bendis is the lead writer so that is comforting.  But it looks like Dr. Doom is going to be the main villian.  

So we get some good and some bad, but at least we are getting info on the game.  I know I'm looking forward to playing as Ghost Rider or Gambit even if it means playing on the PC.  Seeing a thousand Wolverines running around will be sad, but hopefully they offer a wide range of characters.

Who do you want to play as?  Are you hoping for PvP fights?  Let's hear it.

First video of Phantasy Star Online 2!!!!!

By: iorilamia Apr 24, 2011 | 5 Comments

PSO, one of the best MMO's up to date has had many so-so versions. Here comes an exciting sequel to Ep 1-2!

Uploaded by http://www.youtube.com/user/InitialF7

 

BEAUTIFUL! You can fucking JUMP! And the gunplay looks really fun ( and I never liked the ranged classes before). The game looks a lot mroe mobile and flashy, only concern is that it keeps the same feel of the original PSO EP1-2 on Dreamcast and Gamecube. All the PSO's after that tried some cool new stuff, but they also wern't as fun. Any hardcore PSO fans here on gouki.com? Leave a comment on what you think of the gameplay!

 

Also, Alpha testing will start in Japan this Summer, hopefully exciting gameplay will be uploaded.

"Free Realms" MMO hits PSN

By: iorilamia Mar 30, 2011 | 3 Comments

PC MMO Free Realms has come to PSN and is now available for free download, but is it your type of game?

Free Realms is a MMO with many capabilities and activities to keep you busy. The game features Demolition Racing, character customization with classes, pets that poop coal, fighting monsters, mounts, building houses and lots more.

The only problem is that the game is extremely Disney-Esque, making it very unapealing to most mature gamers, which is a shame due to how much you can do in this game. You could treat it as a MMO and lvl up raiding dungeons, or you could be into Minecraft type of games and build houses, or just chill with your friends doing random crap. The game does feature voice chat and trophies though, so with the right friends it could be pretty entertaining. 

And if you want more, the membership upgrade is optional, starting a $4.99 per month. Membership grants you unlimited access to all jobs, as well as premium content such as housing, trophies, exclusive items, and monthly members rewards. Whoopie.

The game sounded pretty interesting until I saw the trailer you are about to view below, uploaded by http://www.youtube.com/user/YahooGamesVideos

 

Source: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2011/03/29/free-realms-hits-psn-today-with-voice-chat-trophies/

 

 

Anyone going to give this a try? A couple of my friends and I might try to see if we can make any fun out of it, if we can get past the visual Cheese, it should be loads of fun. Let us know what you think in a comment below.

More good news from Brink

By: DragonKiss83 Mar 17, 2011 | 6 Comments

Expect lots to change with brink

Let me start with what caught my attention.

The anti-no-skill-kills rundown:

-- The focus is on team play and using your particular skills to help your squad achieve objectives.

-- The XP system rewards you for fulfilling objectives and helping teammates, rather than racking up kills.

-- No airstrikes, and no kill-streak reward abilities that can't be countered.

-- No grenade spam. Grenade-throwing is timed, and the weapons knock opponents down, but don't kill them instantly.

-- Overhauled sniping. No traditional one-shot, one-kill sniper rifles here!
