The MOP Up: Fishing Planet will rule all

    
21

The MMO industry moves along at the speed of information, and sometimes we’re deluged with so much news here at Massively Overpowered that some of it gets backlogged. That’s why there’s The MOP Up: a weekly compilation of smaller MMO stories and videos that you won’t want to miss. See any good MMO news? Hit us up through our tips line!

This week we’ll discover that there is a fishing MMO to end all fishing MMOs, get a free Guild Wars 2 soundtrack, celebrate a 15-year anniversary, and more!

New games

  • I’ve had people yelling at me to give Fishing Planet all of the glory and coverage here at Massively Overpowered. That’s a little outside of my jurisdiction, but I can at least point out that, yes, there is a fishing MMO in development, and yes, it boggles the mind. Is it too early to form a MOP angler’s guild?
  • The MMORTS Stronghold Kingdoms will be making the jump from PC to iOS devices in the future. The iPhone and iPad version will be a full port of the PC edition, albeit with a streamlined interface.
  • There’s a new digital card game that just got funded on Kickstarter called Nova Blitz. According to the description, “games are quick with simultaneous real-time play and combat that rewards intelligence and bluffing.” [Thanks to Dengar for the tip!]
  • Sword Art Online: Lost Song, an action-RPG for the PlayStation 4 and Vita, will be releasing in Europe, the Middle-East, Australia, and Africa on November 13th.

Patches

  • Survarium: Patch 0.30 went live a week ago with a last stand game mode, a new skill tree, a tutorial, and multiple character faces. [Patch notes]
  • ArcheAge: The sandbox’s Korean version is moving to Patch 2.5 which will equalize arenas by removing elements of pay-to-win, such as consumables and combat pets. [Patch notes]
  • Diablo III: Patch 2.3.0 is on the way and the team put up a preview of the new legendary items and gear sets. [Patch 2.3.0 preview]

Odds and Ends

Mobile MMO Celtic Heroes just released its summer update — and here’s the trailer! [Thanks to Samantha for the tip!]

Knock it all you want, but fishing games have always been popular where I live in Upper Michigan(Yooper Represent!).  Critics tore the Reel Fishing games for PS1 apart, yet almost all my friends have fond memories of playing them.  Sure, it probably has to do with fishing being a huge part of our culture up here, but they’ve always been big.  And before someone asks why I don’t just go fish for real, I do.  A lot.  However, it isn’t always an option, even with a lake 100 yards from your back door.

Damonvile There is also Horses MMO, Victorian MMO with no combat, i forgot the
names, i don’t have any interest in these games, and i think there is a
space for testing ideas, even the ones that makes you “eye rolling”, who
knows, maybe people will enjoy playing them, i know for sure that
people do enjoy that Horses MMO … i still can’t remember the name!

I saw Fishing Planet on Steam this morning.  Since I was still finishing my breakfast, a combination of curiosity and masochism made me download it.  After about fifteen minutes of early access antics, I reminded myself that there’s a fully-stocked lake less than a quarter mile from my house and two poles out in the garage.  Which makes “fishing” on a computer pointless and me EFFING STUPID for doing it.
