Final Fantasy XIV launches a new free login campaign for patch 3.1

If you’ve been taking a little time away from Final Fantasy XIV but still want to get in on the additions from patch 3.1, you have a chance with the game’s new free login campaign. While previous opportunities to log in for free after a patch were generally restricted to a single weekend, the new promotion is offering players nothing but time, as the campaign is running from December 1st to December 31st.

Lest you think this is an entire free month for the game, there are more restrictions in place. Former players can log in at any point during the campaign and enjoy four days’ worth of access to the game, meaning that it’s not tied to a single four-day period but still lasts for just four days. Accounts used to log in also need to have been inactive for at least 30 days before being eligible. So you can’t hop in if your subscription just ran out, but if you’ve been away from the game for a little while you could take a step back in to say hello.

Massively OP’s holiday gift guide for the Final Fantasy XIV and Square-Enix fan

Saying that someone is a fan of Final Fantasy doesn’t necessarily say a whole lot. The series has been running for a long while, and each installment is pretty different. You have people who are fans of the whole thing, people who refuse to accept that the series continued after Final Fantasy VI, people who live and breathe Final Fantasy VII even now… you get the idea. There are even people who will legitimately say that the best part of the series was Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest.

Pity those souls.

When you’re dealing with a fan of Final Fantasy XIV, though, you can make certain assumptions about what that person will like. Being one of those myself, I can say safely that what I’d really like is available housing plots and more flexibility in upgrading house sizes in-game. Failing that… well, here are some suggestions about gifts that will not require you catching the ear of the development team and implementing large-scale patches.

Massively OP’s holiday gift guide for WildStar fans

One of my most prized possessions in life is a WildStar rowsdower plushie that sits behind me at work, always giving me the eye. I got it at a convention and know that it’s slightly rare, as Carbine has yet to take the obvious route of mass producing and selling these critters to be the toy smash hit of holiday 2015.

In fact, the studio and its publisher hasn’t done much to merch out WildStar (not even a soundtrack release, alas), which makes buying a special game-themed gift for yourself or a loved one extra difficult. However, I came up with a few possibilities that you can check out in today’s gift guide!

It’s that time of year again: when you realize half-way through your indulgence of in-game festivals that you totally forgot to go out and pick up gifts for all the EverQuest franchise and Daybreak Games fans on your list. Or maybe you didn’t forget, but you’ve been totally stumped as to what to get that certain someone that already has everything in game. Never fear, MOP is here to help! And we’ve got the answer for you: Gift them something outside the game. You’ve already got some good ideas regarding DC Universe Online, so here are a few for fans of the other titles that caught my eye.

Today I’m going to run you down a few ways that you could buy a present for that loved one (which includes you, because you’re so lovable) who is into superhero MMOs that ranges from the affordable to the rather pricey.

Massively OP’s holiday gift guide for the shooter and console MMO fan

Well, I’m still playing the hell out of Star Wars: Battlefront, despite its many (many) faults! It may just be the Star Wars feels, but this is the first shooter that I’ve enjoyed in quite a while.

I used to play shooters all the live-long day, both for Massively-that-was and for fun, and if nothing else, Battlefront is making me reconsider my view of the genre as a young man’s hobby. If you’re a fan of online shooters, console MMOs, or MMO-likes — or you know someone who is — allow me to suggest a few gift ideas that you may find useful.

Massively OP’s holiday gift guide for total MMO newbies

If you’re anything like me, you probably have a tough time deciding what kinds of gifts to buy all of your totally real, not-at-all imaginary friends when the holiday season rears its head. Thankfully, gamers are pretty easy to shop for, especially when it comes to the world of MMOs where people tend to be particularly devoted to one or two games of choice. You can just buy ’em some game-related swag, or even do your gift-giving in-game and surprise ’em with a piece of awesome gear or a rare pet.

But maybe there’s someone in your life who isn’t into MMOs, and you’d like to bring that person into the fold. Whether your would-be gift recipients have never touched a game in their lives or have already gotten their toes wet with a few free trials, we’ve got some (incredibly obvious) ideas to help you give the greatest gift of all: a crippling MMO addiction that will leech that special someone’s free time and bank account for years to come. It’s the gift that keeps on giving! Or taking, depending on how you look at it.

Massively OP’s holiday gift guide for the MMO peripheral junkie

I’m not going to lie, folks: I love peripherals. Love ’em. As soon as I was introduced to the idea that you could have something other than a keyboard attached to a computer, I was hooked, and subsequent years have provided me with a surfeit of options about what I can plug into my case.

That sounded kind of dirty. I assure you it is not.

Maybe you don’t much care for peripherals, but you have a friend on your gift list who loves MMOs and is a big fan of peripherals. Or maybe you just want to get yourself something for this holiday season – I’m not one to judge. Here are a few suggestions for the peripheral junkie in your life, whether it’s you, someone else, or all of the above. Get your USB hubs ready.
