The MOP Up: Nexon’s Legacy Quest (March 12, 2016)

    
13

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. Seen any good MMO news? Hit us up through our tips line!

This week, MMO specialist Nexon launched Legacy Quest worldwide. It’s an action RPG with “3-D retro pixel” voxel-like graphics, 70 unique dungeons, seven levels of difficulty, and of course, mobile gameplay — it’s now on both iOS and Android.

Read on for more bits of gaming news we didn’t want to leave behind!

Patches

  • Path of Exile’s post-Ascendancy 2.2.1 patch was the capstone to “over ten” minipatches deployed to the game over the past week to address performance issues, crashes, and stability; it included gameplay tweaks as well.
  • Splatoon launched its 2.6.0 patch.
  • Webzen’s 3-D mobile MMORPG MU Online released Season 11 Part 1. “The Season 11 Part 1 invites the players to Ferea, a new area, featuring a stunning city full of magnificent structures and artworks,” says the studio. “Only players with a level 400 character or higher are allowed to enter Ferea, where many enemies await them. Defeat the Ferea Knights, Fighters, Archers, Generals and the most powerful boss monster Lord of Ferea to get a number of valuable drop-items.”
  • Age of Wushu’s European counterpart, Age of Wulin, was patched up with Chapter 8: Uncharted World, complete with a new housing system, new survival system, and hugely expanded map.

tobascodagama breetoplay Quincha I’m with you there. I absolutely loath energy mechanics. Just charge me a one-time fee to buy the damn game already. I have plenty of $2-$10 dollar games on my phone, and $14-$80 dollar games on my computer, and I’m a fairly reserved gamer, what would be the harm in a ‘just buy once’ option?

breetoplay Quincha I spent an enjoyable couple of weeks with it. IIRC, what pushed me out was running up against arbitrary energy-gates that would have required a real money investment to pass. I’m fine with a lot of different F2P models, but that one always rubs me the wrong way.

Quincha Spiral Knights is such a cute little game. It never did get the player love it deserved. :(

Big Huge Games developed one of my all time favorite 360 arcade games Catan and at one time were owned by 38 studios – which we always read about here.

tobascodagama That weird day when someone actually considers something a Trove clone after everyone was harping on Trove for being a Cube World clone.
Anyway from looking at gameplay videos, it’s a top-down isometric ARPG in the Diablo vein.  So It’s more like Spiral Knights than Trove.

Quincha tobascodagama In the sense that each Adventure world is an instanced location, sort of.
