Grab a RoboManiac currency key from YEPS and Massively OP to get your ‘bot on

So here’s a new game that’s just rumbled onto our radar: It’s called RoboManiac, and it’s a self-described free-to-play browser MMO that combines “an RPG and sports manager” with robots, an elaborate trading system, a league leaderboard, multiplayer alliances, and basic RPG progression. It’s also adamantly against pay-to-win tactics. Did I mention the robots?

“From the beginning, you have the option to individually equip your Bot with different weapons, drive modules, blades, and numerous other body elements from energy cells to booster packs. Using your Workshop, you can repair, upgrade and level up the various elements of your bot. In your habitat and its surroundings you can send your bot on different missions, fight other bots, or send it to work in the factory, so you can use a few credits to buy or sell important boosters and upgrades at the marketplace. Trading in parts and items is an important part of the game and allows you to do good deals with other players.”

German studio YEPS! has granted MOP codes that will unlock a nice chunk of in-game currency, called platinum. Click the Mo button below (and prove you’re not a robot) to grab one of these keys!

Enter to win a Skyforge PS4 Revenant Quickplay Pack from My.com and MOP!

Hey, Skyforge players! Are you having fun with the newly launched Revenant class? You know, that “mighty warlord, appropriately adorned with impressive armor and wielding a ghastly two-handed axe, which siphons the life from its enemies using vile shadow magics, assuming it hasn’t simply butchered opponents into a gory mess first”?

Oh, what’s that? You don’t have the Revenant class yet? Welp, you’re in the right giveaway! Thanks to My.com, Massively OP’s got a nice bundle of Skyforge goodies to hand out to our PS4 readers (PC folks, you can sit this one out)!

Fifty winners of this week’s raffle will be taking home a Revenant Quickplay Pack, which includes the Revenant class unlock as well as three days of Premium Subscription time. Please note that the codes will work only for Skyforge’s North American PS4 edition.

LOTRO continues to course-correct gear issues, starts Harvest Festival, and gives away mithril tokens

Lord of the Rings Online’s sloppy QA process has resulted in a quagmire of issues following the release of this week’s Update 21. Previously, the studio accidentally sold its new dungeon gear for way too cheap and then tried to remove all of purchased gear without compensation (a move that was later tempered due to player outrage).

But the woes aren’t over yet. Today’s Update 21.2.1 mistakenly nerfed the problematic gear, which hasn’t done much to bolster studio-player relations. “Why, SSG, why?” one player posted. “How can you keep messing up like this?”

For more in-depth coverage of this debacle, check out LOTRO Players’ seething essays on this week’s mishaps and Contains Moderate Peril’s take on the studio’s public relations problems.

PSA: Wurm Online is dirt cheap in the Humble ‘Endless RPG Lands’ Bundle

Sandbox fans, if you’ve never tried Wurm Online, you’re about to get a pretty cheap chance, as Wurm Online – specifically, its Wurm Unlimited edition – is currently dirt cheap in the Humble Bundle’s Endless RPG Lands package, basically a buck unless you pony up more to get a few other classics.

Wurm Unlimited is the 2015 standalone version of MMORPG Wurm Online, a graphics-challenged but mechanically impressive full-scale sandbox. Don’t want to deal with official servers or toxic players? Build your own server and go live there.

Most recently, the game patched in a new highway system, new buildable items, waystones, village settings, and deed tweaks.

Facebook announces $199 Oculus Go, drops core Oculus bundle to $399 permanently

Facebook has announced that it’s once again dropping the price of the Oculus Rift: The device-with-headset bundle will fall from $499 to $399, making permanent the “temporary” price reduction seen this past summer and following another large drop down from $600 in March, a price tag analysts pegged at the time as way too high.

But in perhaps even more intriguing news, Facebook’s announced the Oculus Go, a new headset supposedly in the “sweet spot” between the existing Rift and competitors like Samsung’s Gear VR. Shipping in November, it’ll run just under 200 bucks.

“We want to get a billion people in virtual reality,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says.

PSA: Get tons of Elder Scrolls Online (and Legends!) stuff for $12

If you’ve held off your entrance into Elder Scrolls Online, here’s an opportunity to jump in, cannonball-style. The Humble Monthly Bundle is all about Elder Scrolls this month, giving subscribers an opportunity to grab plenty of ESO and Elder Scrolls Legends goods for a rather reasonable price of $12.

This month’s subscription covers the cost of the base Elder Scrolls Online, 15 days of premium game time, 750 crowns for the game store, and a vanity pig pet. It also includes two packs of Skyrim cards, currency, and an event ticket for Legends. And if that’s not all, the October deal throws in some nice Quake Legends goodies to sweeten the deal.

It should be noted that all of these offerings are for keeps whether or not you keep your subscription to the Humble Store, so you don’t have to worry that there is a horrible catch to it all. Just thought you would like to know.
