Norrathian Notebook: EverQuest Next roundtable roundup V

Filed under: , , , , , , , , , ,

Combat, combat, PvP. That can pretty well sum up a lot of Landmark's chatter recently. That's understandable, since it is the newest feature to hit the sandbox. But that is certainly not all there is to talk about. There are plenty of topics of interest that cover both EverQuest Next and Landmark, and a number of these are touched on in the regular roundtable discussions.

It's been quite a while since we've gathered these all up into one concise spot for you to peruse (so long that Landmark lots part of its name in the interim!), so here's the fifth installment of the roundtable roundup. Poke through this collection and check out what other players and devs are saying about various issues. You can even participate in many of the polls if you haven't yet and add your voice to the mix! Even if some topics seem old, remember that none is irrelevant; the games are both still under development, and player input is always a good thing.

    Star Trek Online explains the Voyager MSD redesign

    Filed under: , , , , , ,

    If you're even passingly familiar with the various Star Trek shows, you'll recognize the MSD. It shows up on the bridge of every single Federation ship, offering a detailed breakdown of what is where for eagle-eyed viewers. Star Trek Online's next expansion is bringing the game into the Delta Quadrant, the stomping grounds of the eponymous USS Voyager, so it was only fair that the Intrepid-class MSD could get a nice new redesign to reflect the years of upgrades that the ship has received.

    The new MSD represents a much clearer picture of the ship from the series, with several elements improved to more accurately reflect in-show layouts and incorporating modifications made after Voyager's maiden flight such as the airponics bay. Take a look at the full development blog for a closer look at how much work has gone into what seems like a little detail but still forms a vital part of the aesthetics.

    [LF MMORPG] Excellent PvE, shiny stuff

    I've played a number of MMOs before; WoW, EVE, FFXI, FFXIV; but nothing I've really stuck with. Have a bit more time now and so I'm looking for something to scratch the itch.

    I'm looking for:

    • excellent pve, with lots of room for solo stuff
    • shiny items, lots of stats and visible changes in my character's awesomeness
    • big environments, with over-the-top bosses
    • I'm cool with grindy stuff, but nothing over the top
    • excellent endgame content
    • Fantasy rather than sci-fi please

    Let me know if any more detail is needed. I don't want to go back to WoW or EVE anytime soon, although I don't think they fit what I'm looking for.

    Cheers!

    Re-edited [ArcheAge] "Final" User Score.

    MetaCritic User Score

    User Score so far is 3.8 from 212 ratings.

    Now if you pay attention to a couple of comments the score is extremely low mainly because of how particularly Trion handled it so far. For example,

    "All feelings aside, The game I gave a 9/10. Combat is fun, PvP is amazing, and best of all, do what you want.

    The devs themselves I give a 0/10. I am a $150 founder only to get a kick in the privits due to TRION wanting to rake in as much cash as possible. The original founders packs were nothing compared to the new starter packs, the server issues... well, that is just another story".

    From what I can see this perfectly summarizes the "mood" so far when scoring. Not sure if this has happened before where the Publishers/Devs are the main focus when scoring instead of the game itself but it is quite interesting nevertheless.

    Watch the fourth EVE Online video in the Clarion Call series

    Filed under: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

    Back in 2009, player corporation Rooks and Kings produced an EVE Online video called Clarion Call: Triage Special, which went viral among space MMO enthusiasts and had a profound influence on PvP tactics in the game. Clarion Call 2 and 3 were released to similar acclaim, and now a fourth installment has arrived. The lushly illustrated, hour-long Clarion Call 4 narrates one perspective of modern EVE tactical history with footage and sound from individual pivotal battles. Don't worry if you're not an EVE aficionado; it's accessible even for a newbie. Just be warned that some of the language and terminology is graphic. Enjoy the video below.

    Massively's ArcheAge launch diary: Day six - P2W and the early verdict

    Filed under: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

    Is ArcheAge pay-to-win? That's a question I've been asked several times in recent days. Before I answer it, let's get something out of the way up front. And by "out of the way," I mean that this is the most important part of the article and needs to be emphasized in the intro.

    Pay-to-win is 100% subjective.

    There is no scientific or universally accepted definition of pay-to-win. Some things in this life are absolutes. Pay-to-win is not one of them.

      Massively Interview: How Eleven is fighting to bring Glitch back

      Filed under: , , ,

      The Massively staffers were delighted to hear that one of our favorite quirky browser MMOs might be coming back from the dead. Fan projects such as Eleven and Children of Ur, the latter of which is in a playable pre-alpha, are often at an extreme disadvantage with such resurrection projects, as they can lack legality, resources, and access to the original code. However, in this particular case, it looks as though Glitch might be a go for a return, as Tiny Speck has blessed player efforts and released the source code and art assets to help out.

      Of course, this doesn't mean that there isn't a huge mountain of obstacles to surmount, but if anyone's to do it it, it might very well be the Eleven team. We reached out to Project Lead Jim Condren and several members of his team to get a better feel for where the project is at and when we might be playing Glitch once more.
