  • No News Yet?

    With the launch of Vanguard: Saga of Heroes days away, Shacknews.com is reporting an interesting bit of imformation. It seems that the official word from Sony is that there has not been a final announcement on what the actual subscription price for this upcoming (and really soon!) MMO will be. Odd? You tell us.

    The official site for Voyage Century Online has been updated with this note about the Item Mall.

    Last weekend, we had a test on the new arrivals on the official item mall. Mentioned in some players’ feedback, some of the new arrivals harm the fair and balance in the game. After discussion, the official and developer decide to remove some of the items after the upgrade of the item mall. New items will be launched after adjustment. Sorry for any inconvenience.

  • Quitters Never Win... But Why Do They Quit?

    MMORPG.com's Dan Fortier takes a look at this question in his editorial.

    Not being one for gank and tells, I usually have a dim view of MMO hoppers that move from game to game without even getting their feet wet. It's not like the genre really fits that type of temperament either. Can you imagine grouping with someone with an "I don't have all minute" attitude? How can any game that requires hundred of hours of mostly repetitive content attract gamers with the attention span of a dope fiend?

    You can't even read any in-game chat or forums without seeing someone who feels the need to tell everyone in /shouting distance that they are quitting. For sanity's sake I'm just going to focus on the people who can give a somewhat intelligible reason for giving up. I've mentally sorted through all the valid reasons I can ever remember hearing and I'd thought I'd share the top three with you today.

  • Mystic Feat Tree

    MMORPG.com has a new developer journal up today to start your week off.

    Some times Mystics and their squads of loyal minions need a little extra help in overcoming a particularly nasty rival, which is when their summoning spells are most effective. When the knocks get a bit too hot, they can use "Lethian Bones" to summon a corpse from its grave and distract their opponent, who will direct all of their hatred at the re-animated sack of bones long enough for the Mystic to plan their next move. For that next move, they might decide to use "Summon Snakes," which summons a serpent to fight at their side. Or perhaps they could use "Summon Shade," which calls a vengeful soul back from Hades to wield the fury of the other side of the grave against their foes.
