This week Chris and Layanor discover they can do a show without Harry’s leadership! We cover a new Destiny trailer, free to play Vendetta, and a new free to play Dragon combat MMO called Dragon Prophet!

Listen now:



What we’ve been playing

Layanor:

  • Played LOTRO this week. Did some more Ettenmoors and trying to hit my rank 11.
  • Played some more Minecraft and I am starting to get tired of playing alone on my own server. So I think I will start to look for a fun server to join.
  • Played lots more Wizardry for the last time. I think the game is great and should be tried by anyone that loves old school role playing games.
  • Started work on my old MUGEN game. MUGEN is a engine that lets you create your own fighting game. I have been trying to make a decent King of the Fighters game for years and if anyone is interested in helping me fix lots of bugs with characters, let me know.

  • Create your character, forge your legend by defeating powerful foes, and earn unique and customizable weapons, gear, and vehicles.
  • Unprecedented variety of FPS gameplay, including story, cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes combined with public and social activities.

 

Vendetta Online adds F2P Kickstarter goal

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/guild/vendetta-online/posts/409075

  • Guild Software has added a possible free-to-play tier which will be available to players if the kickstarter is successful.
  • They are $38,988 out of $100,000 with 4 days left.

  • Subscribers will still exist, entitled to the best game experience without limitations, including unfettered access to all current and future “endgame” constructs
  • “Free To Play” characters will have a relatively low/mid level cap, and will be prevented from creating guilds or any of the other endgame content mentioned above.
  • Microtransactions, should they be added, would only be offered to F2P users. They would simply allow the F2P user to purchase access to equipment or features that would otherwise be available at their character level. Subscribers would have no such need, without any limitations on availability or level caps.
  • Even with maximum use of purchasing power, F2P users would ultimately be capped well below that of subscribers, and would have no faster access to level or equipment, as their character level progress would not be impacted by purchasing power. Thus, subscribers will always have the best experience, as well as the entirely “level” playing field.
