We've got a bunch of Roblox news on deck today. First, there's the Q2 2021 investor report.

Starbase plans to amend its stance on stream sniping citing language that is 'too encouraging'

We're not sure exactly what Starbase developer Frozenbyte thought would happen when the game's griefing policies outright read "stream sniping is allowed," but apparently there's been enough of a whirlwind reaping that the devs have acknowledged on Twitter the policy was "currently too encouraging" to the behavior, leading to an incoming amendment to the policy.

SOE's Jeff Butler gives an epic three-hour interview on EverQuest, Vanguard, and EverQuest Next

If you're going to interview one of the most notable names behind EverQuest and Vanguard, it helps if you also worked at SOE back in the day.

Ahead of the release of the Endwalker expansion, Final Fantasy XIV's staff wants to make sure that the game's servers are up for the imminent strain they'll encounter.

Wisdom of Nym: What will Final Fantasy XIV add to its healers in Endwalker?

Here's an interesting facet to consider: Unlike most of the other entries in this Wisdom of Nym series about Endwalker speculation, this one isn't relying on the benchmark trailer, as there's nothing distinct to be said about what any of the healers are getting in Final Fantasy XIV's next expansion. Scholar, White Mage, and Astrologian […]

Pokemon Go's New Zealand rollbacks show Niantic is more concerned with local law than actual safety

Good news: New Zealanders have had their Pokemon Go PokeStop and Gym radius restored to 80 meters, exactly what the community has been asking for in its demands for the return of COVID-19 changes to the game that would keep players safe and boost the game's accessibility for rural and disabled gamers.

NCsoft says Lineage W will launch this year for PC, mobile, PS5, and the Switch

Last week, we covered NCsoft's initial reveal of Lineage W, yet another entry in the long-running Lineage franchise. Lineage W, however, was initially pitched as a mobile MMO, which didn't have our audience especially enthused, especially since we've been waiting for Lineage Eternal aka The Lineage for seven years. That might change today, NCsoft has […]

We're sure you're all pretty busy playing Guild Wars 2's End of Dragons first beta right about now – and if you're not, then you might want to, since it's free and our own columnist has already written how much fun he's had with the Virtuoso, Willbender, and Harbinger.

EverQuest designer's throwback MMO rebrands as Monsters & Memories

You may recall that earlier this year we reported that former EverQuest and DCUO developer Shawn Lord was working on a "throwback" MMO, which was operating under the codename of "Project_N."

The Daily Grind: What MMO delay has annoyed you the most?

Sometimes things get delayed. It happens. It's generally not a desired outcome by any of the people making an MMO, but you just need to make the game go through a bit more iteration or refinement before players get their hands on it. Or you've found a couple of horrible bugs that will absolutely crash […]

The Repopulation says it's been 'quite the adventure' as it gives a fall development roadmap

Many people may have written off sandbox MMO The Repopulation a long time ago (especially when it changed hands), but perhaps decision was a little premature.

It's been a fair bit of time since we caught up with the latest goings-on for dinosaur-ish survival sandbox ARK: Survival Evolved, so allow us a moment to round up some of the various smaller updates that have been made since the 2021 Summer Bash event. First off, it's all about those fresh new beasties – […]

Pokemon Unite gets mobile release date, Sword and Shield to remain competitive center

Today's Pokemon Presents wasn't the most exciting for fans of multiplayer online gaming, but there were a few kernels of information for us nonetheless.

Continent of the Ninth Seal is moving over to Valofe from Webzen for publishing

If you had some deep attachment to Webzen because the company was behind the publishing of Continent of the Ninth Seal, today's news will be sad, as it has just been announced that Valofe will take over publishing duties for the title soon, with a specific date of transfer to be announced later. No progress […]

Swimsuits! Weapon skins! The satisfaction of scooping up adorable lizards that happen to be blue and on fire!

Book of Travels attempts to elaborate on the TMORPG sub-genre

The question of what a tiny multiplayer online RPG (or TMORPG) is was touched on by Book of Travels developer Might and Delight before, but the studio felt that the new sub-genre needed a little bit more elaboration, which brings us to this video featuring game designer Roberta Alves to talk about the concept. As […]

Playable Worlds' lead designer: 'We're in the game industry because we love games'

Earlier this month, Playable Worlds' Greg Costikyan, the lead designer for Raph Koster's upcoming unnamed sandbox MMORPG, opened up about the way games get made. (In fact, if you're a TTG fan, you should read the comments – our TTG folks were positively squeeing about his involvement, and he even swung by to chat.) Costikyan's […]

Lord of the Rings Online progression server moves forward into the Mordor expansion

If you're among those playing on the Lord of the Rings Online Anor Legendary World (aka progression server), then your time has come to face the dark of Mordor.

EVE Online's July economic report may have unveiled the number of active subscribers

EVE Online has kicked out its monthly econ report for July, which has plenty to snare the interest of the industrious Capsuleer, but it's a particular section of the report that may have cast a light on how many subscribers the internet spaceship sandbox has. The section in question is the ISK Sinks and Faucets […]

Sea of Thieves counted a whopping 4.8M players in June thanks to its third season launch

Sea of Thieves is doing something a lot of online games are reluctant to do: giving hard numbers.

Flameseeker Chronicles: Hands-on with Guild Wars 2's new Harbinger, Virtuoso, and Willbender elite specs

One of the most anticipated features of any Guild Wars 2 expansion is unquestionably the addition of new elite specializations.

Among Us developer Innersloth raises eyebrows at Fortnite's Impostors mode and its striking similarities

While we cast our own shade in the direction of Fortnite and the recently introduced Impostors mode, with its barely veiled copycatting of Among Us, the mode's striking similarities to the game has also become a talking point for Innersloth, the indie dev studio of the multiplayer deceive-em-up. Several members of the Innersloth team took […]

Crowfall makes plans for cross-server campaigns and handshake sieges

It sure doesn't feel as if Crowfall launched six weeks ago, but this summer has felt like three minutes and also three years, so maybe that makes sense. ArtCraft has posted a new dev blog at this month-and-a-half mark, noting that The Shadow's initial campaigns have now closed. "Our next major update at the end […]

Daybreak breaks up with the Wandering Monster studio trademark

Sorry, brain-hungry zombies, it's not going to work out. Just know that it's not you; it's Daybreak Game Company. Last year we noted that Daybreak filed yet another trademark for a possible subsidiary under the name of Wandering Monster Games. Good money was placed in the MassivelyOP office that this was in regard to the […]

Swords of Legends Online asks you to become an unpaid QA tester

It's so hard not to throw shade at MMO studios that try to outsource paid positions to players — or even worse, to charge them for the "privilege" of testing early content. And yet it's so depressingly widespread in this genre that when Gameforge and Swords of Legends Online beckons players to become a de […]

The Daily Grind: Which MMO is the worst when it comes to invisible walls?

Woo boy. If you want to get my dander up out of nowhere when I'm playing your MMO, then just toss in an invisible wall so that I can smack into it like a goose flying into a glass door at 40 miles per hour. There are few petty, insignificant video game design elements that […]

Cutesy MMO Fioresia Online is now Cinderstone Online, launches closed beta test

Let's recap things a bit here: At the beginning of the year, we cast a spotlight on Fioresia Online, an adorable looking 2.5-D open world MMORPG that had cute little bulb-headed adventurers doing big people adventuring things like housing, farming, castle management and sieges, and questing. The game sounded like it was well on its […]
