Community Manager

When not immersed in her favorite virtual worlds, MJ can be found hanging out with her family, reading, coaching/playing sports, writing fiction, singing, and dabbling in graphic design (in random order, depending on mood and season). Her favorite part of MMOs? Observing the dynamics of virtual communities. That psychology degree has to come in handy somewhere, doesn't it?

MJ's Massively Overpowered adventures can be found many places: She investigates Secret World Legends/The Secret World's conspiracies in Chaos Theory, chronicles the EverQuest franchise in EverQuesting, practices survival in many sandboxes with The Survivalist, and livestreams for the Stream Team.

AdventureQuest 3D Moglin plushies can be yours through Kickstarter

If you are a fan (or fanatic) of game-related plushies, AdventureQuest 3D has something you might want to check out. It’s a Kickstarter for 12 cute and cuddly Moglin mascots. Wait, the Hero Mart already exists to sell AQ3D and AdventureQuest Wolds items, so why a Kickstarter? Artix Entertainment’s Adam “Artix” Bohn shared that with a Kickstarter, not only does the team gauge interest in the plushies, but it also can ensure that it has the exact number of which plushies customers wants instead of having a large surplus of some and a shortage of others. That said, the Moglin plushies will head to the Hero Mart for sale at a later date (if the Kickstarter is successful), though without the special exclusives and deals available on the Kickstarter.

So what are the special deals? Pledges for the Moglins start at $14.00 and go up to $99.00, and you can choose between getting one, two, a pack of the three, a pack of six, or all 12 at once. All plushies come with digital codes for the matching in-game pets in AQ3D and AQW. Read more

The Stream Team: Seeking a way to survive in Will to Live Online

Will did not necessarily keep Massively OP’s MJ alive in Will to Live Online. Apparently the wild dogs’ will to tear her to shreds was stronger! But that won’t stop her from going back in and experiencing death in many new ways. Oh wait, we mean experience this new game under development. Maybe she will find some helpful equipment this time while doing tasks for the bar patrons. Tune in live at 9:00 p.m. as MJ returns to this post apocalyptic world.

The Survivalist: Excited for ARK’s Extinction

I finally broke down and watched ARK: Survival Evolved’s Extinction trailer. It’s not that I didn’t want to! On the contrary, I was very interested to get that glimpse; I just wanted to wait until we had even more info about it so I could really delve into it. But since that doesn’t seem to be coming about, I couldn’t hold out any longer. It is the conclusion of the multi-expansion story arc after all, and we’ve just gotten all excited about ARK’s story!

After watching the trailer, my anticipation level inched up a few notches. The teaser hints at answers to some long-held questions, and I am excited to take on the all-new survival challenges. Helping to amp that enthusiasm up are the monthly Extinction-themed content drops: Say hello to some bionic dinos! (They even lay tek eggs!) Perhaps Extinction will be quite a grand finale. I definitely look forward to learning, and sharing, more as we learn about the expansion.

All that said, there’s still that little bit of nagging disappointment at the lack of attention older maps get, especially the original game. Who knows though, perhaps once the final game is out and done the devs can turn some attention back to fixing those issues with the island.
