Vanguard is back to life! New patch was released at August 10, 2011 & Unofficial trailer

Yes, you heard this right. Vanguard: Saga of Heroes has received an upgrade for the first time in a looong time! Not a very big upgrade, it’s just fixing a few quest & items’ bugs, but it’s actually a more important thing… An indication of Vanguard receiving some care from SOE and a confirmation of what has been said a month ago at the last Fan Faire about future plans for Vanguard. I believe, this patch is what the Vanguard dev team were able to finish since then, and let’s hope they’ll keep coming up with more patches.

Also, here’s an unofficial Vanguard trailer that has been made just a couple of months ago by Faeran from VGWalkthroughs.com:

He actually sums up everything that i like in this game. (more…)

Deep Black Online: free2play Sci-Fi MMTPS announced by Russian developer

Deep Black Online: free2play Sci-Fi MMTPS announced by Russian developerI just couldn’t walk past this – it’s not so often when a development team from my country announces an online game! So, the deal is: Deep Black Online has been announced by Biart Studio (based in Moscow, Russia). These guys like to make games about diving and underwater (I’m already starting to love them) and are using their own engine with full 3D support. Deep Black Online is a F2P sci-fi session-based shooter game that will let you combat in all manners of environment – the land, the underwater and the air – using more than 30 types of sci-fi weapons at launch, but we can safely double that because each weapon is said to have different modes for land and water. “Our company focuses on underwater themes in games and we are planning to demonstrate the full potential of Deep Black franchise in our MMOTPS project” said Konstantin Popov, Biart Studio´s CEO.

Square Enix Fiscal Reports Revealed: Final Fantasy XIV Being Blamed For The Losses And Its PS3 Version May be Cancelled Already

Square Enix Fiscal Reports Revealed: Final Fantasy XIV Being Blamed For The Losses And Its PS3 Version May be Cancelled AlreadyA few days ago Square Enix has published 2010/2011 fiscal results report and fiscal year march 2012 planning, both being very interesting documents indeed. As of the fiscal results Square Enix suffered huge financial losses of 12 billion yen (~$148,4 million), which CEO Yoichi Wada blames on Final Fantasy XIV’s disastrous launch and reworking, along with a few other cancelled projects that were in development (about 4,5 billion yen). Wada has publicly admitted that “Our game development has become weaker than expected, revamping it will take one or two years.” Well, who could have possible imagined that taking a game developer with a long record of high-quality games and devouring its name by releasing high-priced, unplayable garbage time after time and showing this shit up everyone’s throats would finally lead to a crashing disaster? *sarcasm mode off* But, getting back to FF14 – everything bad and PS3 version may have already been cancelled: according to Squaer Enix 2012 planning it’s nowhere to be seen.

Sony Online Entertainment Took Down All Its Game Servers Due to Hacker Attack & Compromised Security

Sony Online Entertainment Took Down All Its Game Servers Due to Hacker Attack & Compromised Security (This is madness! No, this is ...Sparta... Sony!)- This is madness! – No, this is… Sony! – should we say. Previously, Sony lost PlayStation Network users data to hackers at April, 26th (which i missed being in Egypt). So far i haven’t seen a solid explanation of what exactly happened and how, just some mumbling excuses on Sony’s part. Today Sony took down all its game servers due to ANOTHER hacker attack and compromised security! Turns out, some hackers (the same team?) just owned all SOE customers data, including personal and credit card information. “Customers outside the United States should be advised that we further discovered evidence that information from an outdated database from 2007 containing approximately 12,700 non-US customer credit or debit card numbers and expiration dates (but not credit card security codes) may have also been obtained – we will be notifying each of those customers promptly” Sony says. So the hacking guys practically plundered everything and went out unnoticed for 24 hours, AFTER the attack on PSW which should have done – what? To ring an alarm, maybe, that there are hackers around? Hello! Is anyone even in there? I wouldn’t feel sorry for these Sony dumbasses if not for my credit card information associated with Vanguard account. And the Vanguard server being unavailable too, btw. (more…)

Faunasphere: “You restored our world” and It’s Closed Now

Faunasphere: “You restored our world” and It’s Closed NowFaunasphere was a very nice game by BigFishGames i wrote about in this post – a mix of MMO, casual and artificial life genres in a browser-based shell, with nice graphics and interesting, unusual gameplay. It’s sad for me to say that now it’s been shut down and no longer available to play. BigFishGames posted this on Faunasphere.com: “You saved our world! You came, you adopted, you zapped, and you put tremendous effort into caring for these charming creatures. Thanks to your commitment as a Caretaker, the Fauna now have a clean world to call home. We can’t thank you enough for being part of Faunasphere. We couldn’t have done it without you.” There is also a short FAQ list posted about why the game was closed, doesn’t tells so much, but i’m also posting it here behind the cut. (more…)

Alicia Online: New Gameplay Details Translated From A Korean Review (And More New Screenshots!)

Alicia Online: New Gameplay Details Translated From A Korean Review (And More New Screenshots!)After going Open Beta February 10, Alicia Online is getting more and more press and player attention right now. Korean web-portal BetaNews.net has posted a short article about Alicia Online (link is in Korean ;), which i’m posting here for you. It is really short but tells us about some gameplay details that were only hinted by Alicia Online screenshots before, so it’s worth reading. Also, I’m going to post more information like this later. A side note: rather than a direct translation of the said article this post is an exposition of what is said there. My Korean is currently revolving around an ability to decipher hieroglyphs into syllables, so i have to make an extensive use of a translation software – but with my experience of translation between other languages i can at least make out the whole point of the text, if not the exact wording. If anyone more fluent in Korean happens to stumble upon this post, I’d be grateful for any mistakes pointed out. (more…)
