Perfect World's Q3 results down

Filed under: , , , ,

Perfect World's third quarter profits fell, according to a financial results document published yesterday by the free-to-play giant. CEO Robert Xiao blamed PW's American operations for the drop, though he said the firm remains "confident in the long-term prospects of our US subsidiary given its strong R&D and operational capabilities as well as [its] promising pipeline."

Perfect World declined to comment on the performance of Neverwinter's Q3 console launch. It did note that it is localizing the fantasy MMO for China, where the company has seen its concurrent user numbers drop from 778,000 to 623,000 inside of a year.

Help finding this time-based browser MMO?

The title of the game had something like Quest or Journey or Saga in the name if I recall correctly (not 100% sure about this). Actions took time and you would queue them up and you started off on a tutorial island then sailed off into the continent and that's where I stopped playing.

It had a pretty nice rep here when it came out, but I forgot what it was called.

A whole bunch of MMOs are discounted on Steam

Filed under: , , , ,

Is your wallet ready for Steam's annual holiday assault? We hope so, because in addition to the usual triple-A and indie single-player smorgasbord, quite a few MMORPGs are getting in on the act. Discounted titles include RIFT, LotRO, The Secret World, EVE Online, Shroud of the Avatar, The Elder Scrolls Online, Defiance, Star Trek Online, and perhaps most appropriately, City of Steam.

    Leaderboard: Can you co-exist with players who don't share your preferences?

    Filed under: , , , ,

    Do you ever feel like the MMO genre has gotten too big for its britches? Take Eliot's soapbox series on raiding that we're publishing this week as an example. It's generated an enormous amount of conversation, but when you cut through the noise in the comments, you're left with two (or more) groups of people who can't seem to co-exist.

    They don't want the same things out of MMOs, they don't share the same MMO backgrounds or experiences, and in many cases the happiness of one group equals the unhappiness of another.

    Some people feel that MMOs should cater to as many different groups as possible, but can they? And should they really? Personally I don't enjoy going to Rush concerts with people who hate progressive rock, nor do I enjoy going to Georgia Tech football games with people who hate football and/or my Yellow Jackets. So why would I want to play MMOs with people who hate sandbox mechanics, crafting, or any of the other genre conventions that I prefer?

    What do you think, Leaderboard readers? Can you co-exist with MMO neighbors who don't like what you like? Vote after the cut!

      SWTOR players love that butt-ugly black-yellow lightsaber blade

      Filed under: , , , , , , ,

      BioWare has released another Shadow of Revan dev blog focused on Star Wars: The Old Republic's class changes. This time, Scoundrels and Operatives take center stage.

      The firm has also published one of those really long infographic things that gives your scroll wheel a workout. Among the stats are the number of active players (one million), the number of PvP kills since launch (1,790,161,866), and the game's most popular lightsaber crystal (that godawful yellow-with-a-black-center debacle).

      Click past the cut to see all the numbers!

      Journey to the West opens up its international beta on Saturday

      Filed under: , , , , , ,

      Want a new game to try out this holiday weekend? Journey to the West International might be up your alley if you have a high tolerance for goofy imports. It's yet another MMO inspired by the Chinese epic tale of the same name, and its open beta launches on November 29th. Players can actually reserve their character names for the beta starting today.

      JTTW boasts a level cap of 40, instanced dungeons, four classes, recurring events, and a psyche system that transforms characters into powerful elemental manifestations. It's also got an open cash shop, meaning the game is effectively soft launching this weekend.

      We've embedded two game videos below, courtesy of MMO Culture. Enjoy!

      Star Citizen: A Great Deal of Hope for the Newly Minted FPS Module

      Since the idea was introduced as a stretch goal, the inclusion of a first person shooter component in Star Citizen has been a somewhat debated topic. There have been legitimate questions about how feasible it would be to add that sort of thing in an already ambitious project, and many have concerns that the attempt might come off feeling cheap or slapped in. We've all seen those games where something was just forced in for the extra bullet on the box.
