The Stream Team: Sequestering an ARK squid

If you thought taming an ARK dino by letting it steal from you was different, get a load of this: taming by blood sacrifice. The way to tame a giant squid of your own is to feed it sacrificial dinos while shoving black pearls up its maw. So that's what Massively OP's MJ and the team is set to do. They're going to plumb the depths to find and tame their very own squid. That, or die trying. (The latter part is fairly likely.) Tune in live at 12:00 p.m. to see us go under the sea!

Chaos Theory: My Secret World 2017 goals

When the year-end Massively Overthinking asked about game resolutions, I honestly answered that I don't really make any because I hadn't ever done that and didn't expect to start. Many of the goals I make as I play throughout the year are pretty specific to what is happening at that time and what I feel inclined to do right then. But the topic stuck with me, and I began thinking about what goals I did have in The Secret World.

Once I started thinking about it in concrete terms, I was able to pinpoint a few more things I'd really like to accomplish this year. It turns out there are some that are more overarching than just an in-the-moment whim. So here they are: my 2017 TSW goals. At the close of this year, you can help me gauge how well I did. (Ironically, since this column was usurped by other topics hogging the spotlight for a couple of weeks, my first goal has already been achieved. Go me!) And please, add any goals you have in the comments!

Touring Marvel Heroes with Gazillion before January 19's big update

While it's true that you can see a good share of Marvel Heroes' mega January 2017 update for yourself on the test server, who could pass up a walkthrough and interview with Brian Waggoner, game designer at Gazillion? Besides, with such a massive change incoming to many of the systems (this may be one of the only times that BIGGEST UPDATE EVER is used legitimately), having a dev on hand to explain various alterations can be a definite plus. I took advantage of the opportunity, so if you haven't had the chance to delve into the test center yourself, be it from lack of time, inclination, or even hard drive space, you can get a peek under the hood here. And then you can jump in and experience it all for yourself on Thursday, January 19th, when Marvel Heroes's latest update goes live.
