RIFT: Planes of Telara – Tips and Tricks – The Interface Questions Resolved

Rift Planes of TelaraRIFT is a cool game, but even if you played in Betas there still could be some questions left like “how do i do that?..” about its interface: either way because RIFT GUI had been changed since Beta or because Trion used some uncommon ways in designing things. To resolve some of my questions i had to go to RIFT forums and do a search, so i decided to sum up my findings in one post for everyone to share. If you play RIFT – this is post is for you, because it gets RIFT interface questions resolved.

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 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…)

RIFT: Planes of Telara – End-Game Content Show Off In A New 18-Minute Video

G4TV has published a new 18-minute video detailing end-game content of an upcoming new MMORPG RIFT: Planes of Telara by Trion, featuring both 10- and 20- man raid types. Trion calls them “on-demand rifting” and this kind of activity isn’t tied to a character progression, like in other MMOs, but instead is triggered via world event. RIFT will supply us with 5 unique raids at launch with more to come after the release. (more…)

More Stuff For Weekend: Divine Souls Is Back Online

More Stuff For Weekend: Divine Souls Is Back OnlineGood news, everyone!© Divine Souls servers are open again for the current weekend! Divine Souls is a free-to-play fantasy action MMO developed by GamePrix and released by Outspark, which is currently *supposedly* undergoing an open beta stage. Supposedly because, when DS beta was opened it was barely playable and bugged like hell, players started to leave and Outspark closed Divine Souls servers until further notice to fix the bugs. It was almost a month ago – January 27, 2011 actually. Outpark was planning to open game servers only for a 6 hour window, but as they write on the official website – “Because the game has remained stable all day, we are extending this 6 hours open server window through the rest of the weekend!”. Game servers haven’t crashed in SIX consecutive hours – an improvement worthy of an early alpha version, but pre-release?! Oh, for holy Metroid Prime’s sake! Before i get any more sarcastic, there’s a fresh Divine Souls PVP video for you behind the cut. (more…)

Divine Souls: Not All Hope Lost Yet? Divine Souls Is Taken Down Until Critical Issues Are Fixed

Divine Souls: Not All Hope Lost Yet? Divine Souls Is Taken Down Until Critical Issues Are FixedDivine Souls is a free-to-play Action-Fighting MMORPG developed by GamePrix and published by Outspark, that is said to “make your console jealous”, and that is really true, because Divine Souls is a console action made into an MMO and released on PC. Earlier i wrote Divine Souls Review: Open Beta First Impression post, in short: i had mixed feelings, because the game yet has some potential but is totally screwed by bugs. BTW, here’s a post with detailed description of an assortment of Divine Souls bugs, and I’ll repeat myself again: “GrandPrix is pretty happy together with its own bugs. Maybe – just maybe! – after seeing a real decline in accounts activity they’ll start doing something and fix the game, but for now… just keep in mind: either you play it bugged, or don’t play at all”. Well, guess what? Divine Souls is taken down “to fix intermittent issues that were impacting the game experience”! (more…)

RIFT: Planes Of Telara – Closed Beta Screenshots – Part 3

RIFT: Planes Of Telara - Closed Beta Screenshots – Part 3We all know what RIFT is about, don’t think i have to repeat it all over again. And today’s Closed Beta 5 is going online (at least, for me it’s “today”, around 18:00 or so). And considering a lack of new posts last week i thought I’d share my screenshots from Beta 4, so here they are: the Defiant races and lots and lots of Gloamwood – the second area that was available for Guardians during the beta – plus new mount, new stuff and a character, turned into a werewolf… Be careful, it’s a HUGE pile of screens! Also, if you haven’t seen previous batches of RIFT Beta screenshots, here are Part 1 and Part 2. And if you’re curious, how to buy RIFT: Planes of Telara in a specific currency, here is how.


DC Universe Online: Another Epic Fail?

DC Universe Online: Another Epic Fail?DC Universe Online was released not a long ago – January 11, 2011 – and whoever of the gaming press were going to write a review on it… well, they did. And such reputable sites like Giant Bomb and Eurogamer give it only 2’s and 3’s.  Giant Bomb blames it for monotonous and loose  fights, and Eurogamer  (behind blaming DC Universe Online for the same thing) also adds that the game at the same time still might be good if only patched and going free to play. Geeks of Doom compares the game with WoW and praises the character creation system, but gives the game only 3 out of 5 and complains that DC Universe Online needs more content and some error correction. This doesn’t looks all bright and shiny to me, but can’t say i’m really surprised, though, and i also highly doubt they’ll make it free to play anyway. By the way, while i’m on citing other reviews, check out 3_KILLA_BYTES DC Universe Online video review, it’s pretty cool (the video is behind the cut). (more…)
