02/14/2014 - Heroes of the Obelisks Big Update Now LIVE
Hero of the Obelisks’ Biggest Update is Now Live!

February 14, 2014 – GBE Games has launched HOTO’s biggest update to-date! Titled “Dungeon Masters”, this major update introduces an expansive layer of new content to the highly-touted, free to play dungeon crawler MMO. View the new video here.

To download and play HOTO for free, visit

HOTO’s Dungeon Master Update showcases the expansion of Altea (the continent to which players reside) where 5 new level 50 dungeons are revealed: Auritalt Mine, Forest of Lost Souls, Sahardion Desert, Underwater Garden and Lifeless Sanctuary, in addition to 3 new Hardcore dungeons (level 50, level 20 and level 10 respectively) for those who seek greater challenges! On top of this, a new Open Field known as Leinjawe Forest has been included for level 20-30 adventurers brave enough to enter (Open Fields are high risk, high reward zones where monsters hit hard but drop highly-prized items)! A new exclusive zone within Trinzel (the main town in Altea) has also been added. The castle known as Lauren Fortress will be accessible to Trinzel’s ruling guild members, who will now be able to enter the Hall of Champions to which they’ll be able to challenge a powerful wizard. Defeating him and his minions will unlock a vast wealth of treasures!

The much anticipated update also brings a major revision to the current classes’ skills. Alterations were made to better balance each class’s role which includes removal of some old skills and additions of new ones. Hero leveled characters (level 50+) will also be able to unlock one extra new skill at each level. Take the opportunity to test out these skill changes in the newly added Colosseum; a special area used for GM events and PVP matches.

Lastly, new and old players will now appreciate that Trinzel has received a facelift. The introduction of Open Field portals, main dungeon entrance, and class NPC relocations to the center of town will make travelling a lot easier and quicker! In addition to the town’s improvements, quest tracking and leveling has been simplified for beginners. Quests now have directional arrows to assist players throughout the storyline and the experience required to level has been lowered!

02/13/2014 - GTA Online Valentineís Day Massacre Special Is Now Available
GTA Online Valentine’s Day Massacre Special Is Now Available

Social Club Event And Livestream Broadcast This Weekend

Valentine’s Day in Los Santos is almost here, and the Valentine's Day Massacre Special update for GTA Online is now available. This includes a variety of fun Valentine's themed extras for Story Mode and GTA Online like the Gusenberg Sweeper machine gun, the new Albany Roosevelt armored limousine (which allows 2 players to ride outside the vehicle) and a host of new attire options like double breasted suits, flapper dresses, sexy undergarments, novelty t-shirts, hats, masks and more. These items are all available to purchase in GTA Online right now until the end of February - and once acquired they're yours to keep in your inventory for good.

This update also has 10 new Jobs across a variety of modes. Here are details on just a few:
  • "Shotgun Wedding" (Team Deathmatch): The title says it all. Small-scale Deathmatch around the church in Paleto Bay that’s locked to shotguns. It’ll be a lot less bloody than divorce.
  • "Property Values" (Deathmatch): Forget about love, nothing’s going to break your heart like the price of real estate. Free for all Deathmatch on an unaffordable cul-de-sac near Mirror Park. Look out for the sniper on the grassy knoll.
  • "Creek" (Parachuting): Nothing says ‘I’m in love’ like throwing yourself out of a chopper with up to seven other idiots. A steep dive, almost skirting the side of the Raton Canyon, gliding into Cassidy Creek.
  • "Vinewood Tours" (Race): Who needs love when you’ve got booze in your belly and stars in your eyes? Lap race for cars and bikes taking in all the tourist sights of Vinewood and Rockford Hills.
  • "Motorboating" (Sea Race): A good motorboating is all anyone wants for Valentine’s Day. Take your love for a trip around buoys and over jumps to the North of Mount Gordo.
  • "Heart Breaker" (Bike Race): Make your feelings known by carving a love heart into the Grand Senora Desert. Hills and jumps in this mainly off-road lap race for bikes on a heart-shaped track.
To help celebrate, we'll be hosting a special Valentine's Massacre Social Club Event Weekend that will include special in-game RP bonuses, Crate Drops, a live stream broadcast on Friday afternoon and much more. Stay tuned for more details later today.

Today's automatic title update includes the triumphant return of the Rat Loader pickup truck to GTA Online. This vehicle and all its mods are available for free until the next title update, so anyone who might have lost one from their garage previously can now re-create it at no cost. Just grab it from the southernsanandreassuperautos.com in-game website and modify it at any Los Santos Customs location.

This title update also enables solo players in Races to earn GTA$, plus provides fixes for numerous issues, including incorrect time displays for some players in the Bad Sport pool, issues with the Cornrows haircut and situations where characters would become bald after using a mask. For a complete list of fixes in this update, please check out the article on our support site.

To get today's update, just power up your online-connected PS3 or Xbox 360 and load up GTAV, and you'll be prompted to download the automatic update (Xbox 360 players will also be required to download an additional compatibility pack). From there, head to the in-game store from the pause menu to access and download the Valentine’s Day Massacre Special.

02/12/2014 - Extrasolar Launches February 18th
Extrasolar Launches Feb. 18

San Francisco, CA - February 11, 2014

Extrasolar puts you at the heart of a sci-fi thriller as you explore an alien planet one unique, beautiful photo at a time. After four years in development, this groundbreaking interactive experience will open its doors to the world on February 18, 2014.

On its surface, Extrasolar looks like a legitimate scientific expedition. When you apply, you’re promised a chance to control one of the many rovers that the private space agency XRI has put down on the surface of an alien world. But before long, the story back on Earth becomes just as compelling as the startling discoveries on the planet as you find yourself wrapped up at the center of a conspiracy, not sure whom to trust.

Unlike most games, Extrasolar is experienced at the pace that might be expected if you were driving a rover on Mars for NASA. As Lazy 8 Studios founder Rob Jagnow explains, "We wanted to create a rich experience that fits into our busy schedules. Most of our rover drivers check in for just a few minutes, a couple times a day. It takes most players about a month to play through the first season - a satisfying story arc with no shortage of surprises."

Players experience Extrasolar through a variety of channels - websites, video messages, email, voicemail, gorgeous photos of an alien landscape, PDF files and more. The result is a story that's woven into the familiar digital media of our everyday lives, blurring the line between fantasy and reality. As Phil Hornshaw at Game Front remarked, "While lots of game developers talk seriously about immersion... Extrasolar achieves its immersion not by drawing players into some other world, but by overlaying itself onto theirs."

Lazy 8 Studios, the small independent team behind the project, has pioneered new technologies that create surprisingly realistic "photos" of the planet's surface. These images are created on high-powered computers in the cloud so that Extrasolar can be played without any special hardware. If you have a web browser - even on your phone or tablet - then you can have the experience of exploring the beautiful and mysterious alien landscapes of Epsilon Prime.

The project's unique story and mechanics haven't gone unnoticed. Extrasolar has already garnered attention at several major festivals, earning nominations for the Gamer's Voice award at South by Southwest, awards at IndieCade, and the Nuovo Award at the Independent Game Festival (IGF). As explained by Mike Rose of Gamasutra, "The Nuovo Award is meant to celebrate the most unique and different indie games, and in this regard, Extrasolar is a perfect fit."

Extrasolar’s first season of content is playable in its entirety for free. Participants can make a one-time payment for extra features, but this is completely optional.

To learn more about Extrasolar, you can visit
whatIsExtrasolar.com. Or if you're ready to dive right in, go to extrasolar.com.

All of these games were selected based on their major contributions to the massively multiplayer online gaming industry as well as to the millions of fans who have enjoyed them over the years.

Each committee member selects 10 games they feel have set standards in the gaming field. The lists of nominees are forwarded to the Hall of Fame and tallied by the curator. Any games receiving 60 percent of the votes become automatic inductees. There were a handful of games newly appearing on this year’s MMO Hall of Fame ballot due to this being their first year of eligibility.

The 2014 MMO Hall of Fame Nominating Committee is a roundtable comprised of gaming industry notables: Carsten van Husen (CEO, Gameforge), J. Todd Coleman (Creator of Shadowbane, Wizard101, Pirate101), Andreas Weidenhaupt (CEO of Infernum Productions), Linda Carlson (Director of Global CR, Sony Online Entertainment), Mark Hill (Senior Product Manager, Perfect World Entertainment), Torsten Meier (Lead Public Relations, Bigpoint), Terri Perkins (Media Strategy Director, Funcom), Richard Vogel (President, BattleCry Studios, A Division of Bethesda Softworks), Eric Bloom (Gamer, Lead Vocalist of Blue Oyster Cult), and Carolyn Koh (MMO Gaming Writer).

We’re sure we can do that with our team,” said Jeremy Blaustein, director of the project.

David Hayter, long-time actor behind the voice of Solid Snake from the Metal Gear® series of games added. “I really wasn’t planning on participating in any more Kickstarter game projects, but when I read Jeremy’s story and saw some of the preliminary artwork, I was very excited and wanted to get involved.  I just love steampunk.”

Blackmore is set in an alternative universe London of 1888. The heroine of the game is a young woman named Emma Blackmore who, along with Descartes, her robot companion, must use their wits and gadgets to solve the Whitechapel murders before time runs out.
