  1. Hey Soldaten, I figured I would share this project I look forward to with all of you guys and gals. Let's begin by talking about Face of Mankind. Who here has even heard of this wonderfully small MMORPG? It was a game with the idea of having player run factions creating the game's lore as it progressed. There were Government factions (Army and Police), Mega Corporation Factions, and Criminal/Fringe Factions (Anarchists, Gangsters, and Mercenaries). This game was set in a future where humans had created off world colonies and cloning was a everyday thing (The lore reason people respawned if they died). It was a small game with a loyal fanbase, but after being released all the way back in 2006 and having owners of the games switch hands a few times, the game fell out of light and close. (For viewing pleasure ) There is a return as foretold by a prophecy, however. A small band of developers, artists, music composers, and writers have all come together to work on Mankind Reborn! Mankind Reborn (MR) follows a similar formula from Face of Mankind and has taken a large inspiration from it. Factions are present in the game's universe (All pre-made, however due to the early development some of the factions can be renamed to something lore friendly.) This game differs from Face of Mankind significantly, and has a new Cyber Punk aestethtic that is reminiscent of such genres like Blade Runner or maybe even RoboCop. Anyway, I would recommend anyone who is interested in finding a Cyberpunk MMO to play, this one is in development and a release date is not yet available, BUT the people working on it are hard at it.

  2. If one is interested in deep Cyberpunk RPG experience Sindome is an excellent choice. As the front page says "roleplaying is required" so the game requires a bit time and dedication to play it properly. Sindome can be played with browser but more traditional telnet connection can still be used. http://www.sindome.org/ Has anyone here played Sindome earlier? How about other MUDs?

  4. Hey guys and gals! James here aka Wade D McGinnis and this morning I bring a new episode of Holo Call. This week I look at why Atlus isn't too keen on letting you stream/record Persona 5, why G2A and Gearbox had a falling out, and CD Projekt trade marking Cyberpunk! As always let me know your thoughts below and we can have discussion about it.
  5. This week in the news; A lot of things are shut down and cancelled, a PC version of FFXV could contain additional content, famed speedrunner deletes her Twitch account, former Rockstar North head sues company, Gears of War 4 release date and trailer, a new Fear Effect, how The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker plays with the burden of the past, the past and future of the cyberpunk genre, environmental storytelling and corpse placement, Incursion added to The Division, the difficulty of Hyper Light Drifter and Dark Souls 3, Fractured Space developer analyze their free weekend, the story of Quantum Break, and more. Final Fantasy XV PC version being considered, could contain cut content Gears of War 4 launches Oct. 11 Cliff has responded positively to the new trailer A thread about this was created here Don't Starve Together leaves Early Access on April 21 The Banner Saga 2 gets a launch trailer ahead of April 19 release Titanfall 2 Teaser Trailer – PS4, Xbox One and PC A thread about this was created here Suda 51's PS4-exclusive brawler Let it Die is coming this year Vita-only Severed gets a launch date: April 26 Umbrella Corps releasing June 21 Square Enix announces Valkyrie Anatomia: The Origin Telltale to publish open-world survival game 7 Days to Die on consoles Total War: WARHAMMER - The Empire vs Chaos Warriors Let's Play Free DLC for Total War: Warhammer detailed Rare Gaming Items Up for Auction to Support Shadow of Mordor Producer Who Passed Away Overwatch adds competitive play and penalties for people who quit early The Division Cheaters Warned of Permanent Bans The Division 1.1 update rolls out soon, so here's a trailer for the Incursion The Eldar wreak havoc in new Battlefleet Gothic: Armada trailer This is the last of the main fleets but for people who buy the game early to get into the beta or people who buy it within two months after release there are two more fleets that will be added to the game. Two New Classes Coming To Black Desert Online Next Week Killing Floor 2 gets Versus multiplayer in Revenge of the Zeds update I played some of this when it first released, the new mode is buggy but fun and there new adaptable difficulty for the regular game just seems to have unbalanced the boss from what I could see after playing four or five games. The two new guns are enjoyable to use.

In the statement he also mentioned the need to fix bugs and multiplayer issues, and said that they would now be giving the transgender character an even larger role in the game with a future update, which should make the very few people who actually thought that the inclusion was a token one happy while upsetting the people who were clearly pretending that was the reason they were upset (like below) or the ones who were blatantly just against having transgender characters in games. Their announcement has upset science fiction writer Vox Day, a white supremacist and someone who talks about why giving women the right to vote was a mistake, so, good for Beamdog. Multiple Bioware employees (not including the one who just left Bioware to work for Beamdog) and the director and communication manager for D&D (as well as the creator of the setting Ed Greenwood) have also defended Beamdog, so the people saying that Bioware would never have written something like this and who don't know anything about D&D and don't think transgender characters should be in the setting, probably wrong. Even Cliff Bleszinski chimed in with the obvious. Continuing from what she wrote on the subject last week, Katherine Cross wrote, Opinion: So you want to write a trans character. Famed speedrunner Narcissa Wright deletes Twitch account, citing abuse Back in January I linked to an interview with her, One of the World's Best Speedrunners Can't Speedrun Anymore. IGDA calls out Nintendo for how it handled harassed employee's termination Nintendo kills 3D Zelda tribute New Mario Maker Guidelines Still Don't Explain Why Levels Get Deleted Shut-Down Metal Gear Solid Fan Remake Reborn as Virtual Museum Blizzard Shuts Down Pirate WoW Server That Doesn't Use Expansion Packs Nosgoth cancelled; beta servers to shut down next month A thread about this was created here Bit.Trip developer Choice Provisions shuts down San Francisco branch Nice logo Fable Legends may not be dead after all Dark Souls 3 PC Crashes Causing Headaches for Players Senator Al Franken takes on Oculus over VR data mining Oculus Rift customers face shipping delays, HTC Vive makes optimistic promises No Man’s Sky Soundtrack Details And Taster Track Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter redesigns Holmes and Watson Romancing SaGa 2 coming stateside for first time ever Mod Makes XCOM 2 More Like Fire Emblem So they have actually improved on the death system that Fire Emblem hasn't bothered doing anything with in 26 years.

Watch Mega Man producer Keiji Inafune make a Mario Maker stage An Examination of Leitmotifs and Their Use to Shape Narrative in UNDERTALE - Part 1 of 2 Why Does Diversity Make You Angry? Why Dark Souls 3 should have an easy mode and the problem with 'playing to win' I don't think the, make it easier, argument is thought all the way through sometimes, not that wanting an easier difficulty is an inherently bad idea or sentiment (the raging gatekeeping fanboys in the comment section might disagree). Doing something like putting in an invincibility mode in the new Star Fox is easy and doesn't alter the actual gameplay, having a story mode setting to not have to worry about combat in something like Pillars of Eternity/Baldurs Gate/Dragon Age makes sense (and Pillars and the new BG expansion do), but making Dark Souls easy would involve looking into what makes it hard for individual people, would it be the bosses, the regular enemies, showing you boss patterns so you don't have to die multiple times and run back to figure them out, falling or being knocked off of cliffs, traps, not playing a character type that seems to be working well for them, etc. An easy Dark Souls mode would likely involve rebuilding areas of the map or repositioning enemies in ways that people who only wanted an easier time in one particular area wouldn't have wanted and could be a much more difficult and time consuming undertaking than adding an easy mode to most games. It's not a bad idea but it's not as simple as just making the enemy do less damage like it is in many games. If the developer believed they had a good way of doing it I'd be all for it.

  6. So, I've been writing this here piece (for my own amusement, mostly) for a couple days now, and I'm looking for some feedback. Think if BioShock Infinite and the Takeshi Kovacs/Altered Carbon series had a baby and that baby was raised by 1984 for an idea of what I'm going for. In other words, think of a cyberpunk dystopia where Objectivist megacorps and governments do bad things in the multiverse. If it does turn out to be good, then I'll turn it into a series. If its utter crap, then it dies and we'll never speak of it again. I hope its the former, but ya never know. So, drumroll please... Crosstime: An Infinite Dystopia When a team of scientists first ripped a hole to another universe, everyone thought it would lead to a new golden age- or a dystopic hell of infinite size. The current men and women in charge would say that both are right. They'd tell you that the attitude that knowing everything happened sometime out there engenders, that nothing, not even human life matters is a good thing. That it frees a person from the shackles of petty concerns like kindness, morality and the will to live and propels them to the ultimate liberty. That if somewhere out there everyone's already dead or worse you might as well enslave or kill them all. That the only thing that matters is the self. The powers that be, the corporate overlords, government tyrants and the leviathan once known as the UN spread chaos and terror throughout the multiverse in the name of one thing: themselves. What will follow are tales from this hellish slice of reality, violent stories of greed, hate and lust for power. And worse things...Yours is not to ask why, yours is to do and die! - KMFDM, Professional Killer Reality Instance CM-09%77$, Local Date 04/12/2020 Perth Airport, Western Australia Autonomous Zone Samantha Walker sat on the tarmac puffing tobacco through a vape, utterly terrified at her future prospects. She'd been telling herself for the past few hours don't think about it. The same mantra, repeated over and over again. It wasn't helping her. She'd been drafted into fighting a war in some godforsaken hell a universe away and implanted with machines that could read her thoughts, with all implied squick in full force. The possibilities were endlessly horrifying- she could die in a myriad ways, have her final experiences sold off as entertainment and quite possibly kill her alternate self before the day was up. She took another drag off the vape, too wrapped up her own thoughts to notice the sergeant stomping towards her. "Private Walker, I can hear your thoughts. Control yourself." the sergeant said, voice laced with barely controlled hate. His accent sounded vaguely Boerlike yet American, out of place in Australia or the rest of this world for that matter. "I'll try, sir." came Sam's shaky reply. It was really all she could do. "You better," the sergeant said back, voice sadistic "because it's pretty fucking annoying to listen to the thoughts of a chicknshit like you, private." the man grasped the grip of his portal gun for emphasis. "Yes sir Master Sergeant Goremann sir!" Samantha said quickly, nearly gulping in an attempt to shut down her fear. "Well then, stand up and march, private!" Goremann shouted sadistically, forcing Samantha to jolt up and follow him. They moved towards the hangar that served as barracks for 15th Shock Infantry, Squadron 9- a unit used to send trouble makers and draft dodgers to their deaths. The unit Samantha ended up in after she tried to run. As she took her place in the line of infantry that was assembled, Goremann began a speech he had spoke before, a speech he quite enjoyed. "Listen up, scum! You have each decided that anything would be better than fighting for the people who took you out of your rat-holes and gave you a paying job!" Goremann screamed at the recruits, focused on Samantha in particular "But do not despair, for you have been a chance to redeem yourselves via a painful, glorious death! And make no mistake, you will die." his gaze burned into Sam's eyes, nearly causing her to shudder. Goremann then drew his portal gun and fired it, ripping a shimmering hole into the walls of reality. Samantha could see a bombed-out cityscape beyond, a thousand ways to die coalescing into a doorway to the wrong place at the wrong time. As the portal stabilized, Goremann looked at Samantha and said two words: "Ladies first." She walked into the breach, fear reaching a peak. She wanted to bolt, but the look on the psychotic sergeant's face told her that would be suicide. So, Private Samantha Walker reluctantly stepped through. She emerged into a smoking crater, immediately assaulted by the various horrors of war. The smell of burnt flesh and gunpowder permeated the air, as did the screams of the dying. As the others in squad moved out behind her, Goremann roared "Welcome to Stalingrad!"

  13. I wanted to survey the interest people have for different pnp RPG's. I might set one up (might) and if I do, I'd like to see which one people are the most interested in doing since all my friends have zero interest in all my plans for some reason I have ideas for all and have written something for everything before, but nothing game ready, but, as I said, I want to see the amount of interest and for what.
  14. Because of !reasons!, you must lose one of your five senses. Which one do you choose to lose?
