The Daily Grind: What MMO news are you hoping for from PAX East?

It’s that time of year again when I go shipping up to Boston, because I live the closest and thus must continue to cover PAX East each year. It’s a bit like perpetually shoving a boulder up a hill. Sisyphean analogies aside, though, I go not because I enjoy Boston, but because there’s always some interesting news to be heard about MMOs, and we want to get all of that for you to chew on.

No doubt you have some idea of who’s going to be there, games as varied as Final Fantasy XIV, Trove, and The Elder Scrolls Online. We’ve got interviews and appointments lined up, there are panels to be seen, there is hype to be built. So what are you excited about, dear readers? What MMO news are you hoping for from PAX East? Or do you just want to watch along from the sidelines and hope it’s something cool?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

GW2 expansion with a Necromancer Elite Spec that provides a Raid buff that the Meta can’t do with out so that 3 or 4 classes don’t have a monopoly on end game ( but then this is ANet so).

A new buy to play PVE only science fiction mmo. A cross between Anarchy Online And Earth & Beyond. With Graphics and Gameplay like Wow or GW2 so everyone could play it. Not just people with the latest PC gear. No monthly fee and a cash shop like GW2. Land and space based gameplay. planets with cities and mission along with space based missions. A seamless Universe the size of Eve Online. Character creation with many different types of life forms. Classless based. You decide what you want to do. A studies system like Alganon’s. that works even when offline.

A few new sandbox MMOs that don’t force pvp on you. Come on guys, not everyone wants that in a game.

Really though, while I can list an endless number of announcements I hope for, I’d much prefer something that has never occurred to me. A good example recently, the Sleeping Dogs movie announcement. Honestly, never thought of the game being made into a movie, especially since the studio closed down, but the second I saw that a movie was being made (I love the shit outta the game) AND that it was going to star DONNIE MOTHERFUCKING YEN? I lost my shit. Went completely nuts with excitement because that’s a thing that I’d never realized that I had a deep need for. I NEED THIS MOVIE IN MY LIFE AND I NEVER KNEW ABOUT IT.

Exciting news, but I also think they could have gotten someone younger.

Also, in confirming this, I also came across this piece of scary news: “DJ2 is currently co-producing the upcoming live-action/CG feature Sonic the Hedgehog for Sony.”

Yeah, if they picked the guy who did the main character’s voice (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0498449/?ref_=tt_cl_t1) I’d be super down with that as well, he did a great job and is a solid actor. But I just love me some DONNIE MOTHER FUCKING YEN way too much (I exclusively refer to him in that manner).

And damn you for reminding me that there is going to be a Sanic movie. I’ve been doing my best to forget that fact for the rest of my life -_-

An announcement that real MMO’s will be releasing. Social, group oriented MMO’s. Will never happen, which is why I don’t go but I can dream.
