Let's be honest, almost everyone has seen this screen.

Old School RuneScape is a free-to-download app but joins the club with subscription-based apps like Netflix, Spotify, and YouTube Premium. Not only is Old School RuneScape the first full PC MMORPG that expanded to mobile devices, but it will also be the first mainstream game to transfer their monthly membership to mobile. Most RuneScape players already know what a membership offers but for those that may not, this paid service gives gamers access to additional world locations, skills, quests, and massively expands the RuneScape universe.

Who remembers this?

A membership doesn’t just apply to Old School RuneScape but also provides a membership for the current version of RuneScape as well. Modern RuneScape is not currently available on mobile devices.

RuneScape Membership pricing is as follows:

USD | GB Pounds | Euros

1 Month $10.99 £6.99 €9.49
3 Months $29.99 £18.99 €25.99
6 Months $54.99 £34.99 €47.99
12 Months $99.99 £62.99 €88.99

Old School RuneScape launched back in 2013, offering fans the opportunity to relive the glory days of the MMORPG. Many still see RuneScape as that browser-based MMO everyone played back when they were young kids, and that might be true. However, RuneScape has come such a long way and the end-game is surprisingly in-depth. RuneScape allows for countless hours of solo play as well as the option to take part in 100-player raids, far beyond the nostalgic RuneScape experience everyone remembers. It has even set itself apart by fully embracing a competitive community with a seasonal free-for-all event called Deadman Tournaments. The winners receive a huge cash prize and membership.

With over 250 million player accounts worldwide, RuneScape has been going strong since 2001 and only shows signs of continuing to move forward. It’s been a long while since any member of the Gigamax Games crew played either the new or old RuneScape but it might be time for a hasty return.

Final Fantasy XIV Director Wants Game on Switch

Final Fantasy XIV is an amazing MMORPG that has captured the hearts (and wallets) of many players around the world.

The Inside Scoop

In a recent interview with gaming publication, Kotaku, the game's director, Naoki Yoshida, stated that "would love for as many players to be on FFXIV as possible" and continued by saying "conversations have been had with Phil Spencer of Microsoft, and the upper management teams of Nintendo." (http://bit.ly/2tBoW50) Although if this were to happen, Yoshida has one condition that may be the biggest hurdle.

Yoshida confirmed in the interview that if the game were to be made available on both consoles that they must has cross platform play. He stated that the reason this has to happen is because many companies don't realize how consistent updates and the way servers are maintained and operated for MMO's go into how the game runs. "Those can become a hurdle when we consider operating FFXIV for an extended period of time," he said. "So when I talk to those first-party companies, I ask them, 'Do you have the capability to prepare for that, do you have the resolve that you're going to make sure to take responsibility and take care of those, do you have that willingness?'

Sony seems like a lost cause in terms of cross platform play. Recently, the company opted out of allowing both Minecraft and Rocket League to be played between the competing consoles. This follows the announcement at Microsoft's E3 conference where they laid out plans to continue support for cross platform play between the Switch and PC players. Sony currently has no intentions to ever allow cross platform play and may never allow it to happen on their consoles.

Recently Square Enix debuted the most recent expansion for FF XIV, Stormblood and has made it clear that they are going to continue to support the game. Gigamax Games has recently become heavily invested in this game and will keep a close eye on any updates the developer releases so make sure to keep checking back for more.
