The Zapper!: "The Horror"
Posted: Friday March 2nd, 2012 by

As goes Star Wars Galaxies so goes Cosmic Rift, Infantry, Star Chamber: The Harbinger Saga, and Everquest Online Adventures. [more info] SOE will be closing all four of titles on the 29th of this month. Current players (of EQOA at least) will be given 3 months of Gold Membership to bit EQ and EQ2 as a partial apologly. The zapper however... the zapper doesn't care. Closing so many games at once leaves us feeling somewhat assaulted.

Now I have to be honest here, I've only heard of EQOA and Infantry. But I've not played them either. Which, I assume, is part of the problem. I won't go so far as to say SOE is cutting dead weight. But I would say that they're reining in where they can to reduce overhead. It's just a sucky part of game development in the current economy. Just ask the 600 people Blizzard just released.

So any of you play any of these titles? I personally would like to hear your fond memories and war stories. No better way to commemorate the passing of a pixelated, digital friend in my opinion.
