Look like two more MMORPG‘s are closing up shop this week. Yesterday it was announced that Troy Online would be closing down on November 30th only after three months of being open, due to bugs and errors. Alt1Games stated that they would continue work on the game, fix the issues and re-launch the game at a later time.
Today Lego Group announced that Lego Universe will be closing its doors on January 31, 2012 due to a lack of interest, even after going free to play back in August

"The LEGO Universe team can take pride in having developed and launched a great LEGO experience that many players will miss," said Jesper Vilstrup, Vice President of LEGO Universe. "Right now, we have almost 2 million players inLEGO Universe, and we get extremely positive feedback from players. Unfortunately, we have not been able to build a satisfactory revenue model in our target group, and therefore, have decided to close the game."
These words were said in a interview about LEGO Universe. The team decided its time to shut the servers down for their 2 million players. It is always a sad day to see a MMORPG shut down, or planning on shutting down because im sure the 2 million active players currently will miss the game, and it is sad toContinue Reading
So another mmo will be meeting the unfortunate fate of being shut down. LEGO Universe will be closing shop in early 2012, the reasoning behind this is due to insufficient subscribers. The game's official date of departure is January 31st, 2012.
According to Jesper Vilstrum, who is vice president of LEGO Universe, “we have not been able to build a satisfactory revenue model in our target group, and therefore, have decided to close the game.” Just because they gave up on this online venture, they will be staying in the market and working on new projects in the future, so if you were a fan of some of the LEGO games like the Batman or Indiana Jones ones, we will still be seeing more of those in the future.
Personally, I have never played LEGO Universe, so I cannot cContinue Reading

You like time travel, right? What about adventures into block filled universes? Excellent. LEGO Universe has heard your clamour for more content, and has responded with an all new set of quests that will send their players back in time to fight for Nimbus Station -- you know, before it was an endless stream of costume contests.
Beginning February 23rd, players will travel back in time to defeat the chaotic Maelstrom, in an epic clash happening many years in the storyline’s past. LEGO Universe invites players to step up and make history, because without saving the Nimbus Station of the past, the Nimbus Station of the present may never be rebuilt!
Players must seek out the bold Venture League time traveler, Wenn Wuzzit, in Nimbus Station and use his time-twister devContinue Reading

Every once in a while a game is mentioned on the wind and it sets your brain a tingling. It was like what with LEGO Universe. For years I followed the development of this title, loving the fact that they put community first throughout the process. Starting from the game’s logo on, the developers at NetDevil set about to create a game built by the community for the community, and we all were excited to see the outcome. What resulted, however, is a game that is long on charm but short on substance, a game that isn’t sure who it is, mostly because it was driven in large part by a collective of amateur game and LEGO lovers, and not by the development team itself.
The story that connects LEGO Universe together is actually pretty strong for a children’s tiContinue Reading
