MMO Week in Review: February 22, 2015

    
27

Were you too busy gaming this week to pay attention to MMO news? Get caught up every Sunday evening with Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review!

Up-and-coming PvP MMORPG Crowfall has been counting down a 40-day timer that ends next week, biding its time with announcements about its destruction-oriented voxel-based tech, physics engine, and new classes. Any guesses as to what’s happening when that timer runs out?

Read on for a look at the rest of this week’s top MMO stories.

New or returning to the site this week were Hyperspace Beacon, Chaos Theory, Not So Massively, Jukebox Heroes, Working As Intended, Betawatch, Make My MMO, LOTRO Legendarium, and EVE Evolved. And don’t forget our Firefly-inspired Kickstarter video, the Stream Team‘s resurrection, and the second episode of the podcast!

Count down to them releasing game footage, my guess.

Siphaed Zulika_Mi_Nam oneeyered That’s a matter of opinion. I cannot stand Anime and most reality TV. Furthermore, I would take Vikings over any of the above you stated any day of the week. It’s all a matter of opinion and personal taste and nothing more. No “Sorry, but true”; isn’t it great we all aren’t lemmings following one another off a cliff?

Crowfall sounds interesting but the images released so far don’t impress me at all, I’m just not a fan of graphics like that, give me the photo realism like you see in moonlight blade and black desert and I’m interested.
Interested enough to put up with the Asian mmo grind over a more accessible but graphically disappointing western game.(my personal opinion ofc)
As for the countdown I’d guess kickstarter with early an early access pass .

I am just guessing, but I think the announcement going to be:
Today, we are pleased to announce that we have been acquired by Columbus Nova, an investment management firm well known for its success with its existing portfolio of technology, media and entertainment focused companies! This means that effective immediately ArtCraft Entertaintment will operate as an independent game development studio where we will continue to focus on creating exceptional online games for players around the world, and now as a multi-platform gaming company. Yes, that means PlayStation and Xbox, mobile and more!

As part of this transition, ArtCraft Entertainment will now become Daybreak Game Company. This name embodies who we are as an organization, and is a nod to the passion and dedication of our employees and players. It is also representative of our vision to approach each new day as an opportunity to move gaming forward.

breetoplay ManastuUtakata I don’t know if this is the same as what Mana is talking about, but some articles when I go to expand them; the article expands but the comments section is missing. Multiple refreshes doesn’t work, but sometimes come back to it later and the comment section appears.

Better entertainment is Aldnoah.Zero and World Trigger.   As well as Assassination Classroom, Death Parade, and Maria the Virgin Witch.
Anime top American reality shows and fake “History” Channel shows 100x over.  Sorry, but true.
