A significant portion of the WildStar playerbase has been requesting something in the way of server merges for a little while now. Carbine Studios had been fairly quiet on all fronts lately– until today, that is. In a stickied forum post, the team announced that they will be implementing megaservers to WildStar in the near future. As announced later in the day, the time frame looks to be 3-6 weeks from now precisely.

What this means exactly is that there will only be one PvP realm and one PvE realm per data center when megaservers go live. The character cap will be increased to 12, and players who currently have more than 12 characters will still have access to all of them– they’d just be unable to create new characters. On the downside, this means that RP players will have to find their own communities within their megaservers. Carbine is adding in-game chat channels that are region-wide to help roleplayers and players who speak different languages find one another easily.

Carbine will also be adding in last names with the megaserver transition. Players will be prompted to add a last name for each character upon logging in. Players can add a space in between the first and last names, and they’ll be able to choose a name (including the space) that uses up to 30 characters.

Up until the change, players are now also able to transfer across servers for free. For more information, Carbine has posted an FAQ about the upcoming change.

PAX Prime began today, so Twitch has been the place to hang out for those of us who couldn’t make the journey to Seattle.

So, what we did find out? Let’s take a peak:

Finally, the team announced that Defiance will be getting a new patch. It’s great news for all games across Trion Worlds as Syfy’s Defiance Season Two ended this week. We’ll look out for more news as future developments of the TV series and its game progress.

While gamers and streamers alike have been expecting to hear the news that Twitch had been purchased, it came as a surprise that the purchaser was Amazon. Twitch had been in talks with Google until recently, when it’s presumed that Google backed out due to the competition between Twitch and YouTube. Once Google had stepped back, Amazon stepped in. Amazon has been trying to get a hold of the gamer market for a while (see the gaming features of the new Fire TV), so they made the strategic decision to purchase Twitch for $970 million.

While the acquisition holds a lot of potential, it’s really too soon to tell how the sale will lay out. What do you hope that Amazon will bring to Twitch? What makes your nervous about the change in ownership? Sound off in the comments!

Update: Twitch.tv was the victim of a DDoS attack only a few hours after the Amazon purchase was announced. It is widely believed that the culprit was Lizard Squad. Although the attack occurred around the time of the announcment, it is unclear whether or not it was a motivating factor as Lizard Squad also took down League of Legends and Battle.net.

While Twitter didn’t exactly get its wishes grated by Disney magic, it was announced on Tuesday that Donald Glover is going to voice one of the incarnations of the famed web-slinger on Disney HD’s Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors. Glover will voice Miles Morales, the pre-teen who takes the place of Peter Parker after his death. The casting is certainly apt, since the campaign to case Donald Glover in the Spider-Man reboot inspired the creation of the character.

Of course, it doesn’t take long for things to get awkward when Parker comes face-to-face with his successor. USA Today has already published an exclusive clip of the characters’ meeting.

The season premiere of Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors will air on Disney HD Sunday, August 31st at 9am ET.

The RIFT official forums have been a roller coaster for the past two weeks with changes occurring to the game as Trion prepares for the 3.0 expansion entitled “Nightmare Tide“. Some intrigue has sparked early this week thanks to Senior UI Artist Amber “Gingers” Alexander teasing us with a tiny bit of info regarding Minions.

No, that’s not an April Fool’s joke on the front page of the Mario Kart 8 website. In addition to the free Mercedes DLC being released tomorrow, Nintendo fans will be able to pre-order two upcoming DLC packs that grant them 16 new courses, 6 new drivers, 8 new vehicles, and 8 new colors for Yoshi and Shy Guy for about $12. The course count alone increases the total courses by 50% and will be the first new cups Mario Kart has received since Mario Kart DS. More information from the official press release after the cut.

If you tried to login to the PlayStation Network yesterday morning, you may have noticed that the network was unusually slow, or may have just been unable to log in completely.  Sony confirmed the issues on the PlayStation blog with the post below:

“Like other major networks around the world, the PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network have been impacted by an attempt to overwhelm our network with artificially high traffic.

Although this has impacted your ability to access our network and enjoy our services, no personal information has been accessed.

We will continue to work towards fixing this issue and hope to have our services up and running as soon as possible.

We regret any inconvenience this may have caused.”

‘Tis the summer season for MMORPG incentive rewards! Zenimax Online and Bethesda announced yesterday that The Elder Scrolls Online will be getting a new loyalty rewards program beginning in September. All subscribers who have been subscribed for at least three months (including the complimentary first month as well as any extra free time) will be getting a High Hrothgar Wraith vanity pet (pictured in the header image). Kind of a cute little fellow. In that creepy, ghost-like way.

The loyalty rewards program will expand over time, much like the current programs in FFXIV: ARR and WildStar. The next milestone reward will come at six months. For more information, check out the official announcement.

We’re happy to announce that Junkies Nation is currently looking to add new writers to our awesome, tight-knit writing team. We’re looking for writers passionate, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about console games, PC games, MMORPGs, MOBAs, and all things geeky. In particular, we’d love to have writers covering these specific areas:

  • MOBAs
  • MMORPG news
  • MMORPG guides/editorials/previews (bonus points if you know one game inside and out really well)
  • Console/PC game news
  • Console/PC game guides/editorials/previews
  • Comics

In addition, we’re always happy to have anyone on board who loves to write an in-depth editorial or two. There are plenty of gaming sites out there that cover the fluffy. We’re not here for fluffy. We’re here to dig deep, share our experiences, and say what needs to be said. Even if your specialty isn’t on the above list, feel free to contact us. We’d be more than happy to accommodate you.

You’d be free to write whenever you want as your schedule allows. Ideally we’re looking for writers who can contribute 2-3 times a week since we’d like to keep our team fairly small, but we’re here to work with you– not the other way around. Article ideas would be totally within your own control regarding specific games/topics, but we’d be here to lend a hand with full editorial support and idea support.

As far as payment is concerned, we will begin by offering an unpaid trial period that will extend into larger opportunities. More information will be disclosed privately.

To apply, tell us a bit about yourself, your areas of interest, and your experience writing. If you have any published writing samples online, share ‘em! Send any applications, questions, or concerns to Laura Hardgrave at laurah@rerollz.com.
