And thank you!
I recently had a Skype chat with Legends franchise developers Spacetime Studios , specifically with Adrian Glover and Greg Mueller, Assistant General Managers. They told me all about the new Arcane Legends update and expansion, Rage of the Ren’gol, which should be live as you read this.
You guys. It sounds really awesome.
It starts when players get involved in a fight between orcs and gnomes — the new races in the expansion — and eventually players need to rebuild a town that was caught in the crossfire. Rebuilding activities will happen in real time as players work to finish the project.
It’s the weekend, isn’t it? IT IS, weirdos!
It’s time to play some games, crack open a drink, eat bad food and later get a responsible amount of exercise. Here’s 5 things that I want to do this weekend:
I recently played the first hour of Echo of Soul, a new free-to-play game that features some really nice graphics and interesting systems for gaining experience. I didn’t get very far (the video shows the first hour) but I wouldn’t mind returning sometime. The game has just launched on Steam, so go check it out.
So I am often asked “Where do you find all of those games that you write about?” but it’s really a simple answer: I look. I Google. I crawl around Steam. And, over the years, I have built up a long list of friends and developers who will let me know when something pops up.
Following is a list of 20 indie MMOs that are currently playable and fun. Could I make it a list of 100 indie MMOs? Yes, but I will save that for later. In the meantime, here are the ones that I actually play and enjoy, or have enjoyed in the recent past. If they are in beta or alpha I will try to put a note. Thanks!
These are in no order of preference. Just an order.
I have included videos where I can; some of the videos are older and I will have to shoot new ones. Be sure to keep an eye out, and be sure to try these if you can. You will not regret it.
I jump in to Ascent – The Space Game for literally the first time. It is in early access, so keep that in mind. You can check it out here: http://www.thespacegame.com/ — Watch live at http://www.twitch.tv/beauhindman
