Community Manager

When not immersed in her favorite virtual worlds, MJ can be found hanging out with her family, reading, coaching/playing sports, writing fiction, singing, and dabbling in graphic design (in random order, depending on mood and season). Her favorite part of MMOs? Observing the dynamics of virtual communities. That psychology degree has to come in handy somewhere, doesn't it?

MJ's Massively Overpowered adventures can be found many places: She investigates Secret World Legends/The Secret World's conspiracies in Chaos Theory, chronicles the EverQuest franchise in EverQuesting, practices survival in many sandboxes with The Survivalist, and livestreams for the Stream Team.

Videos offer impressions of Black Desert’s new Valencia region

While fans in the North American market can’t jump in check out Black Desert’s latest update (the game needs to launch here first!), they can experience it vicariously though videos thanks to Steparu.com.  Introduced last week, the update added a new region called Valencia, a beautiful yet deadly desert that will actually strip your character of health during the heat of the day and freeze you to death during the night. However, besides admiration at the beauty, Steparu’s impressions also include disappointment at a lack of world bosses, group or party content, and a delayed new job as well as concerns over the direction of the cash shop. Explore a bit of the region and experience questing in the videos below, then catch a city tour and more at Steparu.com.

The Stream Team: Stroll the streets of EverQuest Next’s Qeynos in Landmark

EverQuesting: First impressions of EQII’s progression server

When it comes to a launch, rough winds are pretty much expected. But surprisingly, EverQuest II’s progression server launch on Tuesday was pretty much smooth sailing — especially compared to its older sibling’s run just a couple months prior. The server was up right when expected, players could actually log into said servers despite the load, and a lack of crippling lag made play possible. Even better than all that is the fact that folks landed on the infamous boat that started the original journey over 10 years ago. In many ways, it really is a blast from the past, albeit with a few changes.

So now that the opportunity to recreate those glory days of starting EQII for the first time is here, how does the experience measure up to personal hype?
