It appears that the Tad Williams-inspired cyberpunk Otherland MMO has a new lease on life. The first version of Otherland was still in production back in March 2013, when developer RealU laid off most of its staff and work on the title ground to a halt. Now it seems Drago-Entertainment, a Polish...

In the world of MMOs, no news is not necessarily good news -- especially when it comes to crowdfunding.

This new class has just been added...

I really enjoyed taking a look at UFO Online a few years ago at E3, but the game has been stuck in what seems to be that standard gamigo tunnel of time, where games go to be semi-released. What do you get when you start playing? Well, if turn-based, squad-based combat is your idea of a good time (m...

We hate to be the bearer of bad news, especially if you're a fellow post-apocalyptic shooter fan, but gamigo's upcoming Grimlands title is no longer upcoming. The latest we-hardly-knew-ye F2P flameout was apparently pretty far from prime time despite a public beta late last year. A terse gamig...
