Sony Online Entertainment has released a companion mobile app for Planetside 2, available now for free on Android and iOS. PCGamesN reports the app allows you to voice chat with your compadres, which is kind of amazing if you’re trying to organise whatever the shooter MMO has instead of raids. It also connects to various social media and community destinations, provides information on game systems, has a news ticker, offers leaderboards and stores your character’s stats for bragging rights at the pub.

Sony Online Entertainment recently decided to compensate Planetside 2 players who had purchased useless duplicate items with Certs, the MMO’s currency. Unfortunately, PCGamesN claims something went terribly wrong, and many players have received ridiculously inflated rewards, and the leaderboards are groaning under the weight of so many overnight millionaires, kitted out with every upgrade available all at once. The latest update from SoE’s Matt Higby denies any erroneous payouts, but an earlier post mentioned that any errors wouldn’t be rolled back.

Screenshots of upcoming fantasy MMORPG Dragon’s Prophet have been released, showing off the Laedis continent of floating islands. According to lore, before the invention of airships, the place was so isolated that only the Osira inhabitants dwelled there, as the Eternal Dragon placed the inhabitants there during the First Dragon War. During the Second Dragon War, the continents “were continuously fractured and Laedis was flung high into the sky.” Thus, it remains there. It all looks rather lovely, and I was able to play some of the MMO during GDC last week. My full report will be posted sometime next week. Dragon’s Prophet will be published by SOE in North America, and Deep Silver and Infernum Productions per regional agreements in other regions.

PhysX is amazing, but the trailers showing off how it works are kind of hilarious. In this one, an Nvidia engineer discusses the “pretty epic effect” the middleware brings to such mundane acts as, oh, blowing up tanks in Planetside 2.

Everquest is now old enough to wear coloured lip gloss to school, and won’t shut up about boys, but at least it’s stopped demanding a horse.
