In this weeks TWIMMO, we have new info on Elder Scrolls Online combat, SimCity is playable offline but is an MMO by design and ArenaNet has a new approach to updates.
The Elder Scrolls Online team have been busy answering community questions about the game and this week they covered combat. One of the interesting things about Elder Scrolls Online combat is that they’ve negated most ally targeting in favor of area-of-effect or cone effect healing.
Of course, this will put the healer more in the middle of combat rather than having them hang back so they won’t get hurt while trying to keep everyone alive. This is going to make Elder Scrolls Online combat a little weird for a lot of long time MMO healers, isn’t it?
SimCity continues to upset people.
Of course, that doesn’t stop a few people from trying to do it themselves and one modder even demonstrated how to take the game offline. There were some restrictions to having the game in offline mode, but it looks pretty workable.
Why’s Lord British on Kickstarter anyway?
Lots of devs are going to Kickstater lately, and Richard Garriot is joining them. Like a lot of developers he’s looking for more freedom than working with publishers allows.
And, it looks like we’ll get to see what he’ll be able to do without publisher intervention, because Shroud of the Avatar is pretty close to reaching it’s goal with plenty of time to go.
All that and more plus your viewer questions…
The gang also look at the new Guild Wars 2 update philosophy and TERA’s
