Another exciting week here at the offices of MMO Attack! On Monday Jess dropped news in the Daily Drop about the leaked game list for the Wii U, the full list of confirmed games for the Wii U can be found here. She also gave us some valuable information about new games from Square Enix and Relic Studios. FryedEgg and Nananea completed the day by giving us a complete look at the first person shooter Global Agenda. If you haven't heard of Global Agenda yet, it is an online first person shooter by Hi-Rez Studios that uses Unreal Engine 3.
On Tuesday we gave you all a new skit called 'Banantics', which about the struggle of an immigrant family as they fight for survival .. no, actually it's about a banana. Or maybe it's about a yellow jacket? It's hard to tell at this point. But you can figure it out for yourself below!
I know you're going to ask 'Where did you get a banana suit from?', well I just had it laying around the house OK? There's nothing strange about that, at all! Jess' Daily Drop showed EA confirming that a new Dead Space would be coming later this year and that Treyarch was toeing the line with Black Ops 2's settings. Rodney gave us a reminder that Starhawk was being released the following day, and told us why we should all play it, don't gotta tell me twice.
I know I said Wednesday was my favorite day last week, and that's because it is! The newest episode of CircleKirk was released and I have the great opportunity to speak with my friends Kirk and Kirk about E3 2012. Jess dropped some gaming knowledge on us by telling us about a delay for Bioshock Infinite and when Alan Wake's American Nightmare would be released. On Wednesday Jess and I also got the opportunity to visit The Behemoth game studio and talk to them about everything they were working on, including BattleBlock Theatre. Our full interview with Dan Paladin with be released next Monday!
On May 10th the Spirit Tales Open Beta was kicked off, players were able to win cool prizes like an Apple iPad just for playing the game. The first gameplay reveal for Assassin's Creed III was featured on Jess' Daily Drop, as well as information on official DICE servers being pulled form Battlefield 3 and the Max Payne 3 launch trailer.
And now welcome to today, Friday! We have a brought back the Weekly Loot, which is a show about the goings on with the site in the past week. It's just a way we can give a quick run-down in video form on what we are up to. In today's Daily Drop Jess talked about how full internet browsing is coming to the Xbox! Now this sounds like a novel idea, being able to browse the internet while sitting on your couch!
I'm happy you all made it through the week and have quite an enjoyable weekend. Next Monday we will be delivering our interview with The Behemoth as well as heading up to Irvine to get the inside scoop on the Diablo III global launch party.
See you in the forums!
Eight of The Most Memorable MMO Dungeons Ever Designed
Dungeons are a staple of the MMO genre; large-scale challenges requiring co-operation and co-ordination between anywhere from five to a few hundred players to adequately complete. Of course, not all are created equal, and some stand head and shoulders above their peers. Today, I'd like to tip my hat to those few legends, those instances that'll stick with us for years to come as shining examples of how to do dungeons right.
Ten Of The Best MMORPG Songs Ever Heard
In many ways, an MMO is only as good as its music. Many of the best and most memorable moments in an MMO invariably have a song associated with them; a piece of music which brings the memories flooding back the moment it reaches one's ears. Today, I'd like to pay homage to some of those songs - and some of those moments. Here, for your listening pleasure (and in no particular order, I assure you) is a list of some of the best songs ever heard in an MMO.
Facebook's Purchase Of Oculus VR Isn't The End Of The World
For those of you who've been living under a rock, Facebook recently purchased Oculus VR to the tune of $2 billion. Understandably, backers and developers alike were rather unimpressed, calling it a betrayal. As for me? I've never been more excited.
Seven Of The Worst Things You Can Say In League
If you've played league, you've probably encountered at least one toxic player. If you haven't, there's a good chance that YOU are the toxic one. Don't believe me? Ask yourself if you've ever said any of the following...
Six Reasons You Should Be Playing Dark Souls II

Eight Reasons The Elder Scrolls Online Will Be Awesome
As you're all no doubt aware, The Elder Scrolls Online - currently in open beta - will be launching in a few months or so.

MMO Year In Review: 5 of 2013's Biggest Dick Moves
People are dicks - particularly on the Internet. While that shouldn't come as any great surprise, occasionally we come across someone whose level of sheer dickery reaches legendary proportions. As we move into 2014, let's take a look at a few such individuals from the previous year.
Censorship Spells Trouble for League of Legends Patcher
Internet filtering has been a hot button issue for the past several years. With the slow gutting of protective measures like Net Neutrality, and with governmental powers seeking an end to online anonymity, it's rather harrowing to see the slow progression of political and social policing of the internet. Recently, after about a year of lobbying, the United Kingdom enacted a piece of legislation that many have come to call the "UK Porn Filter." What the filter requires is for British ISP's to implement filters and controls, which are on by default, that will block access to "violent material," not imited to "extremist and terrorist related content," "anorexia and eating disorder websites," and "suicide related websites."
