Shortly after the release of Minecraft: Pocket Edition, one of the main features everyone wanted was some sort of server service where players could join up and play together, just like the PC version of Minecraft. This was to be Minecraft Realms, which was going to be hosted by Mojang themselves. Of course players of the PC version could always set up their own servers and a lot of players did. However getting that done for Minecraft: Pocket Edition was nowhere as easy, although with the launch of PocketMine it did become easier for sure.
Well for those of you who managed to partake in the Summer Alpha testing phase for Albion Online, our fun times will be coming to a close soon. The Summer Alpha program will be ending on July 27th which is Monday of next week, but it won’t be closing without a bang.
The Albion Online Summer Alpha has been in full swing for the past few weeks and it has been going pretty good, at least on the PC side of things. A lot of mobile players haven’t been able to enjoy the game too much due to it still needing plenty of optimizing for the visuals so they don’t hog your resources and produce rendering lag. If you are one of the few that doesn’t experience a lot of that, such as myself, then you’ve probably been enjoying your time in Albion Online’s Summer Alpha quite a lot.
A couple of days ago we reported on the upcoming cross-platform MMORPG Albion Online and the fact that the Summer Alpha had started. This is the second testing phase for this game this year, with the first being back in January/February this year. If you currently own an Epic or Legendary Fonuder’s Pack, even if you purchase one right now, you can access this Summer Alpha phase.
Albion Online is a MMORPG a lot of people are looking forward to play. It was originally announced that the PC MMORPG would be coming to multiple platforms including Android and iOS last year and since then the game developers have been hard at work making sure everything runs smoothly. This game actually had a brief closed alpha testing period a little while ago (earlier this year), making this Summer Alpha the second time the game has opened up to the public.
Spacetime Studios’ upcoming MOBA Call of Champions will start its Alpha program today, which is essentially the very first round of testing with people outside of the company. This includes the recently announced trio of ex-pro League of Legends players who have been brought on board as consultants in the development of this game.
One of the top selling SEGA Genesis games from 1994 was a football game called Mutant League Football. This new version has already been nominated for the Most Promising IP category in this years Game Connection America 2015 Development awards. In other words it is looking pretty damn good.
Nom Nom Games, which is an indie-subsidiary of Trendy Entertainment (the folks behind Dungeon Defenders), has announced that they are launching a third round of public testing for the “Alpha 1” build of their MMO game Monster Madness Online. This particular game is an action RPG shooter MMO that will also feature cross-platform gameplay on iOS, Android, PC, MAC, Linux, Steam and web browsers.
Today Android gamers get a little bit of a treat, especially if you enjoy playing Dreamcast games. That is because Reicast, a multi-platform Dreamcast emulator that works quite well, has arrived onto Android today. Reicast is actually a fork of Nulldce for those of you familiar with that emulator. This release is being labeled as an Alpha version but once you dive into it, Reicast seems to have more of a beta feel to it.
Last week we talked about a rather cool looking turn-based combat game called Aerena – Clash of Champions by Cliffhanger Productions. This is one of those games we’ve been talking about lately that will be arriving with cross-platform support between mobile and PC gamers, being available through Steam for PC, Mac and Linux users while also being launched on iOS and Android for the mobile gamer to enjoy.
