Le gasp! No! Say it ain't so, Joe! Say it ain't so!

Back in September, we heard rumblings that the Korean Mega Man MMO, oh-so-creatively titled Rockman Online, had halted production following a restructuring of developer Neowiz. All evidence pointed towards the game being canceled, though Neowiz never actually confirmed it. But honestly, everyone knew what was up.

Korean game site ruliweb just received confirmation today directly from Neowiz that Rockman Online was officially canceled in November 2012. The decision was reached after the studio consulted with Capcom on the game's status. Oh, really? Capcom canceled a Mega Man game? Who could have ever seen that coming in a million years?

I don't think a single person will be shocked by this news. I literally feel nothing. At this point, I'm more surprised that the sun is still hot and water is still wet.

At $10, yeah, Guild Wars 2 is worth playing

As a casual MMO player, I've always liked the Guild Wars series -- no monthly subscription fits my lifestyle, you know? I don't have to feel guilty about wasting money by not playing "enough," whatever that is. If you're of a...more

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (Patch 2.5)

Final Fantasy XIV has come a long way. Although there wasn't any real endgame content to speak of when A Realm Reborn launched in its 2.0 incarnation, Square Enix worked hard to deliver in 2.1, and has continued to deliv...more

Surprise! Elder Scrolls Online is dropping the fee for existing subscribers, console version dated
