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.

The Stream Team: Trove celebrates three years!

It may be a Monday night, but it’s a party night! Trove turned three years old today and Massively OP’s MJ is ready to celebrate. Of course, she’d love to party with a pet pal, but she doesn’t have a Geode one yet. That means she’s off to dance her way down in the depths of the mines to find an egg while singing a variety of happy birthday songs to the voxel game. Join us live at 8:00 p.m. and jump into the celebration with her.

TennoCon 2018: Warframe enhances sights and sounds with new skins, ‘Frames, pet skins, music, and more

What does a great game look like to you? More and more it looks like Warframe to me. Looks and sounds like I should say. Have you seen those reveals from this year’s TennoCon? I found them pretty amazing. And part of that amazingness comes from the look and the sound of it all; the gameplay content wouldn’t have half the impact without the integral contributions of the art and sound departments.

At TennoCon Live 2018 I got to learn a bit more about these aspects of Warframe. Of course, no panel would be complete without a reveal or two, and we were treated to a few fun ones, from the two new ‘Frames and skins to the introduction of pet skins to the discovery of Creative Director Steve Sinclair’s hidden voice role in game.

TennoCon 2018: Warframe is coming to Nintendo Switch, some cross-platform a possibility

Do you love surprises? Digital Extremes is banking on your liking this one: Warframe is coming to Switch. In a fake-out move tonight at TennoCon 2018, one dev hopped off stage while playing a handheld game, but it became apparent what was going on only when he started showing the front row his screen. When those players exploded in cheers, the main camera zoomed in to show the rest of us the real-time Warframe gameplay happening. And then the whole crowd joined in the celebration!

While there is no date on a launch, partner Panic Button – which also created DOOM, Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, and Rocket League – is already deep into development. You can check out gameplay in the reveal trailer below.

TennoCon 2018: Warframe expands into open-world Venus plus space

Eidolon expanded the scope of Warframe immensely, but that doesn’t hold a candle to the content coming. The playable universe is growing by open-world leaps and bounds… and rocket thrusts!

Digital Extremes announced the next two major updates coming to the game at this year’s TennoCon 2108. First up this fall is Fortuna, a massive open-world environment on the surface of Venus. How big is it? Game Director Steve Sinclair said that the entirety of Eidolon would fit just on the first base in The Orb Vallis. That was the one folks had surmised parts of thanks to datamining. However, no one expected the second announcement: to play in space!

The Survivalist: Yes, ARK Survival Evolved actually does have a story

Survival — or more? You might be surprised. When I first started playing ARK: Survival Evolved at the launch of its early access, it was an all-out dinoriffic survival game. And those of us who played in the beginning knew it just as that. As development moved on, more futuristic additions joined the primitive survival aspects. Some folks rebelled against this, balking at the inclusion of Tek. (Hey, some didn’t even want electricity and stayed playing on Primitive+ servers.) But the point of it all was not to rain on people’s dino survival parade, but because ARK has an actual story to discover. Yes, there is an ARK story. And after experiencing the conclusion of the first act this past weekend, I am way more stoked about it! Warning, there are some spoilers in pictures, so ogle them at your own risk!

Are you itching to set off some colorful explosives but your hometown won’t allow it? ArcheAge is offering a vicarious solution: in-game fireworks. And they are free! You’ve got the chance to snag some free daily gift packs in celebration of… well anything you want to celebrate. And here’s a twist: You don’t even need to log into game to get them!

Grab a new one each day and either stock up on one character or share the wealth by picking a different one to receive them each time.
