The Curse of the PS3 MMO

08/01/2009

Back when the PS3 was released Sony talked about its hard Drive and its network saying that the platform is the perfect vehicle for a console MMO experience. At the time the idea did not seem far fetched after all the PS2 had a Final Fantasy MMO. But in the three and a half years since how many MMOs have been released for the PS3? Well, if you guessed zero then you win the grand prize. If you want to argue HOME is an MMO then -1 point for you, it is a social networking app not a game. Games like Endless Saga, Aliens vs Predator, The Marvel MMO, The Agency, Free Realms and many more have all been announced and gone on to be either canceled or delayed. And now the latest setback, Joystiq reports that “The Agency has lost some top agents as several members of Sony Online Entertainment’s Seattle studio have left to form Detonator Games.“. Art director Corey Dangel, studio director Matt Wilson and producer John Smith have all left Sony Online Entertainment’s Seattle studio and gone on to form their own studio. Sony claimes that the games development is unaffected but I am taking that statement with a grain of salt. Will the Agency make its 2010 release date? I truly hope so but we only have past history to judge by.

Has Fat Princess Been Delayed?

06/20/2009

For those of you who don’t know about Fat Princess here is the description from the official Playstation site. “Frantic and fun, Fat Princess pits two hordes of players against each other in a comic medieval battle royale. Your goal is to rescue your beloved princess from the enemy dungeon. There’s a catch though: your adversary has been stuffing her with cake to fatten her up and it’s going to take most of your army working together to carry her back across the battlefield.”

I have been into electronic games for a long long time. There is a universal truth about these games “Games will be delayed.”

Earlier this year videos were shown that said this title would be released in June (those vids are long gone I looked for them). Well June is almost over and there is not a peep out of Sony about this title.

On the European PS Blog Mike Kebbly responded to a question about the Release of Fat Princess in Europe saying “Fat Princess will have a global release date, but I can confirm for you it will not be next week I’m afraid. The game is coming at some point this summer, but there is no confirmed release date at the moment.”

This has raised fears that with only one more Thursday before the end of June that the US version will be delayed also. Destructoid, Shacknews, WorthPlaying and G4 have all announced on the web that this is the case.

I say there is a glimmer of hope. Europe has a history of getting the “pointy end of the stick” when it comes to game releases. The diversity of the area that SCEE covers makes it a nightmare for localization and approval. I am NOT saying Fat Princess will come out this June 25th. I just saying no wailing and gnashing of teeth until the 25th comes and goes or until SCEA gives us the official word.

Demon’s Souls

06/15/2009

As a fan of computer RPG games I have noticed a distinct lack of RPG titles for the PS3. Well Atlus is looking to remedy that deficiency by porting Demon’s Souls over from japan. The game looks to be a hardcore RPG with some very intriguing online aspects. The Release date is still to be announced the official word is “this fall” and Amazon lists it as October 27th. Here is a Video from the official Playstation Blog that has Jeff Rubenstein interviewing Atlus’s Aram Jabbari at E3 about this title. Grrrrr video would not embed so you will have to go to the PS Blog to see it.

And here is the E3 trailer.

Free Realms Enters Into Open Beta on the PC

04/27/2009

SOE’s candy colored PC mmo enters into open beta on Tuesday April 28, 2008. You can think of this game as an mmo for the casual gamer. The attempt is to attract families, tweens and teens into a free fun casual environment. Variety is a key feature of this game. Activities include cart racing, exploration, pet training, mini games, a trading card game and the usual mmo fair of gaining experience to level fantasy characters.

If you understand mmo terms such as Grind, Pull, Power Level and Mob Aggro then this might not be the game for you, but the mmo curious and the young should find something of interest in Free Realms. Now you might be saying to yourself “Why is this PC game showing up in a PS3 blog?” Well the answer is that Sony Online Entertainment is no longer under the umbrella of Sony Pictures and has been moved under Sony Computer Entertainment. That means that SOE will finally start producing games for the PS3 and Free Realms is looking to be the first out of the gate later this year.

If you are interested in trying this free PC mmo head to www.FreeRealms.com and join the open beta.
