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!

Trion confirmed this week that it is indeed porting Korean MMOARPG Devilian Online to the west as Devilian. In a welcome letter posted to the community, the head devs asserted that the game deserves the MMO label, talking up the game’s open world and large-scale PvP.

Want to game with members of the Massively Overpowered community? MOP’s own Jef is hosting an ARK: Survival Evolved server. Come punch dinos with us!

Read on for the very best of this week’s MMO news and opinions.

You have to manually add it as a “favorite” server, but you can only do that through the steam client (not from inside the game).
If you dig up Jeff’s server creation announcement article, it has the detailed instructions there.

bayspoon Xijit My server, Dinosaur VooDoo is PvP, go kill anyone you want, lol. It also has 2x Taming speed and 4x Night Speed. It’s a max of 30 players and usually only has 3-5 people on. Thinking of increasing the structure durability and exp rate.

So Trion is importing another Korean game? Sorry Trion, but even if you managed to not screw things up like you did with AA, I still wouldn’t give you one red cent. Heck, I’d rather play Cabal 2 than anything you pump out.

Rustybladez Yeah, I found it buggy as hell, but kind of playable …. music was narcoleptic so I didn’t get all that high of a level.

kinda preferred the healer to the tank, so maybe I will try the mage next and see how that goes (with the music OFF).

Cabal 2 is in open beta… not sure what to make of it at level 6 – thus far feels like a railroad.  I have yet to sort out how to pick one of the 4 factions.  On the bright side I haven’t seen any dwarves, zombies, or elves.

Think it really cool of MOP hosting the Ark server for a place the community can come together, and would just like to give a shout out. As soon as I tire of ESO a little more and I’m ready to bite for another early access, hopefully I’ll join you guys and start my quest to find Mo.

Kudos  to MOP!
