The Hokfig, it’s bigger than you think.
A little more information was released yesterday with an update to The Repopulation Bestiary. These 7 critters will be making Rhyldan their home and will be the wildlife players can expect to run around with when they log into the game.
For more information on The Repopulation, check out their webpage. http://www.therepopulation.com
The Repopulation has re-vamped their website. The new website design includes a social media outlet for folks getting hyped over The Repopulation. It’s a great way for folks to connect outside of the game. It includes personal updates as well as starting up groups so clans or just groups of friends can get together and discuss.
Personally I think it’s a great addition.
In other news The Repopulation crew will be at PAX East this year! Anyone who is going be sure to stop in and say hi.
Also, if you haven’t already, the End of January 2013 Update is posted at the website. Folks who get the e-mail newsletter will have seen this already, but feel free to check out the link if you don’t get the newsletter. Big notes in this release include changes to stealth and the addition of new devs.
It’s an exciting time for The Repopulation.
I am still avidly awaiting the release of The Repopulation, but I needed a chance to get some gaming in on the side.
About a month ago I set up a trial for EVE Online. I figured I’d give it a shot and see what has changed much since my last experience with the game in 2011.
I created Sonja Austrene, a Minmatar Sebiester. None of that bit really matters except for the part that says Minmatar. So far I’ve really enjoyed flying and engaging in combat using Minmatar ships.
I’m not in PvP right now and there’s a few reasons for that. Most of the reasons revolve around my High Sec corporation.
I do like where the game is right now, and CCP has gone out of their way to try and improve the new player experience. I think I’ll stick with EVE for a while, at least until I’m so busy with The Repopulation that I have no time for it any longer.
OK so I never really hype the MMORPG.com Player’s Choice awards, but this year I’m thinking it’s worth taking a look at.
A lot of people are voting for their favorite game of 2012. Including the folks that are battling it out to see if The Secret World, Guild Wars 2 or Star Wars The Old Republic will be the top game of 2012.
For me, I’m putting bids in for The Repopulation. Who wouldn’t have guessed that right?
It’s not a bad look over to see what players are thinking here at the end of the year.
Check out the voting here -> MMORPG.com Player’s Choice Awards
PS there’s also MMO Site’s -> Most Anticipated MMO’s of 2012
MMO Site has quite a few games listed there that you might not see at MMORPG and vice versa, so it’s not a bad idea to take a look at both. Well if you like scoping out all the MMO’s available.
How did you get that wolf up there?
I have noticed an interesting trend in the MMORPG.com forums. People are posting that they just don’t believe independent developers can build successful MMO’s. Some of these posters are stating that if the big names can’t pull it off, how will the little guys be able to make it?
For what it’s worth I feel like Independent Developers bring a lot to the table. They usually have some fresh ideas on game play that perhaps games with investors can’t take a risk on developing.
So I’m putting this out there for the general community to postulate, ponder, blog about, rant about, what have you. Do you feel that there is a place for Independent MMO developers? Do you think they add to the genre?
I’d love to hear what anyone has to say on either side of the argument.
