it's not even on a teevee

MMO blog Tales of the Aggronaut looked at the recent phenomenon of Amazon’s popular Fallout series and any correlating increase in the games’ populations, including Fallout 76.

“We are now seeing this Fallout love, translating into a rush of players to games like Fallout 76, which never really seemed to find its place and launched with a peak concurrency of 32k players on Steam. Recently it has been breaking those records with a new peak hitting just shy of 73k players.”

The Ancient Gaming Noob is looking forward to June’s EVE Online: Equinox expansion: “Empire building further enabled I guess. Also, do people live on planets out in null sec?  Do they come and go with the rise and fall of empires? Or do they just stay in place and hope the new boss is better than the old boss?”

The Lazy Goldmaker says that Engineering in WoW can make you a lot of cash: “In my opinion sourcing sapper as cheap as possible is the main way we get profit here. The most important part of that is to find solid stone at cheap prices. You need massive amounts of solid stone to keep sappers in stock, so you want to buy up solid stone whenever it’s cheap.”

Going Commando took a tour of several Rishi strongholds in SWTOR: “I actually giggled when I found that they had used one of the rooms on the patrol carrier to construct a prison, with Republic troops in a cage guarded by Imperial soldiers. Pretty inventive!”

Inventory Full butted up against the end of Nightingale’s narrative: “If gameplay depends on exploration, storyline or character progression, though, it’s going to need constant refreshment to keep people interested.”

The Nosy Gamer wonders if Star Citizen is under financial duress: “Now for the question I’m sure someone will bring up. Are advertised features missing because the CIG marketing machine finally couldn’t raise the funds development demands?”

Battle Stance found WoW Classic’s latest Season of Discovery phase a bit off: “Maybe I’ll get back to it, but I kinda let the sweaty nerds on Reddit get to me this time: ‘You’d have to basically been offline since launch to not be 50 already’ – that was on like Day 5. Yeah, no.”
