Deepworld: Review
DeepWorld is a sandbox title from Bytebin that brings familiar features to players in a stark, post-apocalyptic world. We've been playing a lot of DeepWorld lately and offer our official review. See what we've got to say before diving into the comments with your thoughts.

Deepworld is Bytebin's take on the sandbox MMO. It's a terra-forming game that riffs off on impressions of Terraria and Minecraft. Variations on a theme as you mine for resources, move blocks of earth and craft new things with the resources you mine. Set in a post-apocalyptic Steam Punk world, you wander about exploring, dodging acid rain, strange underground octopi and rogue clockworks, and you build. Fantastical underground chambers or traditional above ground houses complete with glass windows, fireplaces and fancy ironwork.

Last week, our own Rob Lashley and Ripper X took part in the Planetside 2 Ultimate Empire Showdown. Rob as reporter, and Ripper as contestant. Today, we're recapping what came out of the event, including the future of PS2 as an eSport with MLG.

Sony Online Entertainment held their first ever PlanetSide 2 Ultimate Empire Showdown last week, January 25th, 2013, at the Book Bindery in Culver City, California. The UES was a competition between the three factions of PS2 led by a designer and celebrity YouTube personalities. The UES was open to the public and allowed fans of PS2 to interact with SOE developers as well as the internet personalities. Fans at home could also play along and help their favorite faction across the live servers. Jace Hall co-hosted the event with PS2 Creative Director Matthew Higby. Jace and Matt were joined by Adrianne Curry who roamed the floor as their analyst in the trenches. There were also two important announcements made concerning the future of PS2.

Game of the Week
Neverwinter is an upcoming free-to-play MMO from the combined team of Cryptic Studios, Wizards of the Coast, Hasbro, and Perfect World. It will put players into the heart of Neverwinter, one of the most infamous cities in Dungeons & Dragons lore.

Set 100 years after the Spellplague, and after the volcanic eruption that destroyed the city, Neverwinter is slowly restoring its former glory. But in the deep, dark places in and under the city, evil forces are seeking ways to keep Neverwinter from that goal, by any and all means possible. Players will need to once again answer the call for heroes to help save the city!
