City of Titans has launched its Kickstarter and has been fully funded. Although it offers an attractive dream of brining City of Heroes back, it isn’t going to get anywhere near what it is promising.
Both WildStar and The Elder Scrolls Online have announced they are launching with subscription models. Those who don’t learn from multiple past failures are doomed to repeat it.
Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning is closing down in December of this year. It’s a MMO that never lived up to its potential or its pre-launch hype.
One of the major criticisms thrown against NCsoft’s handling of CoH/V’s closure was that they shut the game down quickly, with no real attempt to find a purchaser. However, that doesn’t appear to be quite true…
Board game Kickstarter success The Doom That Came To Atlantic City raised nearly four times its financial goal, but has been cancelled after all the money was spent. It certainly seems that a lot of backers don’t recognise how crowdfunding transfers around the financial risk inherent with developing a game.
Back in January an anonymous source made a number of claims about City of Heroes’ / Villains’ performance to MMORPG.com, so let’s see how they stack up.
This seems like a stupid question, but a lot of people seem not to really know.
Did you know that you can pay real money to unlock virtual items in Dead Space 3? If you’ve played Dead Space or Dead Space 2, you probably aren’t surprised.
A few years ago, when everyone was charging box costs and subscription fees, buy-to-play (B2P) stood out as being different. In today’s market, TSW’s approach to B2P is possibly the worst of all worlds.
I remember the mass objection years ago to pay-for-betas, where players refused to consider having to pay money to access an unfinished title, but now it seems almost accepted that Kickstarter MMOs like Pathfinder Online bundle up beta access as a backer reward years before beta actually starts.
