  1. I noticed that the General Discussion section was a place to talk about video games, so here's a list I've made and shared at different places, that consists of 18 of the most promising and popular MMOs (so they get a chance to ever become "massively multiplayer") that are currently being developed by indie studios (may be small or large, as long as they're independent from big publishers). If you've got suggestions or games you think should get added to the list, let me know. edit: for some reasons I don't achieve to embed videos Dual Universe [Beta] Setting: Science-Fiction || View:

  2. That sounds so good. It must take so much work to do this kind of montage!
  3. It's usually correlated, yes.
  4. Valheim anyone? It sold more than 5 million copies (it's a survival coop with boss fights, crafting and building)
  5. None right now as I do not own a gaming PC, the most recent games I've played would be League of Legends (mostly support) and Agar.io. I've also playtested Crowfall and Camelot Unchained but my laptop wouldn't handle those games.
