Final Fantasy Online's got a new big patch, and to encourage players who have let their subscription lapse to come back, the game is offering a free weekend for registered, inactive players from Friday, January 30, 2015 at 12:00 a.m. to Monday, February 2, 2015 at 12:00 a.m. (PST). It appears that those players will have full access to the game, including new features from the patch.

If you're not familiar with Second Life, it's a online "virtual world" that dates back to 2003, and though it is massively multiplayer, it does not have any objectives.  It's more or less a 3D chat and roleplay client, but a group of users have done something incredible within it; they've made a Cyberpunk MMO called Remnants of Earth:

[Remnants of Earth has a] heavy basis around classic pen and paper RPGs elements, like; dice rolling, stats, monster fighting, story driven events, MMO-like adventuring, and gathering. RoE is the first second life pen and paper table top game in SL, while still keeping the core features of any other roleplay sim. Players can interact with NPCs and other players to accomplish goals, and even engage in heated PvP faction wars. We even have a full crafting and mining system! Think of RoE as a fully functioning table top game in SL, like Dungeons and Dragons, or ShadowRun.


Check out the trailer for it above.

Old School Runescape went ahead and commemorated one of, if not the most fateful day in Runescape history yesterday. It was the Falador Massacre, and in case you didn't know, here's how it went down:

Player Cursed You maxed out his Construction skill, invited a few dozen friends into his house, things got a little bit rowdy as they will when the band gets together, a sparring combat ring was assembled in the house, which flagged players for PvP. But here's where it gets interesting...

When Cursed You kicked people out of his house, they remained flagged for PvP, and a horde of revellers marauded through Falador, laying bloody waste to everyone in their path. 

The tortured cries of 'bank your items!' echo into eternity...

So, in honor of that fateful day the Old School Runescape team set up a tournament in World 666 that made Falador a battleground once more.

Appropriate, don't care, or distasteful? Have at it:

After seven years in development, project Titan has been canceled, Polygon confirms. Blizzard's CEO told Polygon, "We didn't find the fun,we didn't find the passion. We talked about how we put it through a reevaluation period, and actually, what we reevaluated is whether that's the game we really wanted to be making. The answer is no."


It sounds like Titan rose out of a desire to recreate the success of WoW and it just wasn't happening. Blizzard doesn't want to be identified as "the MMORPG company," and though they "wouldn't say no to ever doing an MMO again... that's not where we want to be spending our time."



Are you sad to see Titan go? Were you looking forward to the MMO? Did you even know it existed?
