RIFT: Starfall Prophecy Review

General - Columns

Rift’s latest expansion, Starfall Prophecy, launched just a few weeks ago. In that time, we’ve tried several souls, leveled through the four new zones, and experienced a lot of what the largest content update since Nightmare Tide has to offer. What did we think? Read on for our final review.Posted Dec 7, 2016 by William Murphy

4 Surprisingly Awesome Things about Watch Dogs 2 on PC

General - Columns

Watch Dogs 2 is out today on PC, though it’s been out for a couple of weeks on consoles. While critics and players alike are lauding it as a far better game than its forbear, we thought we’d spend a little time today talking about the game’s multiplayer – a seamless online experience that an MMO gamer might find enticing.Posted Nov 29, 2016 by William Murphy

Impressions of a Tale Ten Years in the Making

Final Fantasy XV - Editorials

Final Fantasy XV development originally began in 2006, under the name Final Fantasy XIII Versus. It was going to be a side-entry in the series, not a main installment because its tone was going to be a darker one than the main series allowed. Development was troubled though, and eventually the game shifted to the PS4 and Xbox One and became a full-on entry in the Final Fantasy main series. After all the waiting, is the tale of Noctis and Lunafreya a worthy entry to the Final Fantasy canon?Posted Nov 28, 2016 by William Murphy

Does Blizzard Have a Secret Diablo?

Diablo 3 - Columns

People were expecting something huge from Diablo at BlizzCon 2016. And while we got news of the Necromancer (it’s awesome), and a Diablo 1 anniversary event (also awesome) we wanted more. We expected more. And it’s that lack of a bigger expansion or sequel to Diablo 3 that makes us believe there’s something bigger coming from Tristram. Posted Nov 7, 2016 by William Murphy

Vuzix iWear Video Headphones: A Portable Movie Theatre In Your Face

General - Previews

When Vuzix’s PR firm asked me to look at the iWear Video Headphones and write a review, I jumped at the chance. I’m not an early adopter of VR (no Vive or Oculus for me), but the technology fascinates me, and I was not disappointed by the iWear’s capabilities. That said, there are several limitations to the headset that keep me from recommending it to everyone.Posted Nov 3, 2016 by William Murphy

Predictions for Blizzcon 2016

General - Columns

Next week, we’ll be attending BlizzCon 2016, the 10th such affair in the company’s long and storied existence. Last year’s convention was pretty intense, with Legion info, Overwatch, Warcraft movie goodness… it’s hard to imagine that 2016 could somehow top last year. But it’s the TENTH BlizzCon. We’d be fools to think that the Irvine, California based studio didn’t have some sort of surprise up its sleeve. Posted Oct 27, 2016 by William Murphy

Good Gaming – A One-Stop Destination for Amateur eSports Worldwide

General - Previews

Recently, a group known as Good Gaming has been making waves in esports by providing a place for amateur gamers to compete in and earn money from tournaments in games such as Overwatch, Hearthstone, and more. We caught up with GG’s Vik Grover to talk about the platform and what role they hope to play in an emerging western market.Posted Aug 26, 2016 by William Murphy

The Legion Pre-Patch and My Return to Azeroth

World of Warcraft - Previews

Bill Murphy didn’t expect to find himself back in World of Warcraft, but on a whim he decided to re-subscribe and see what the upcoming pre-expansion patch is all about. In the week leading into the Pre-Patch (which launches today after maintenance), Bill finds himself reveling in old haunts, the victim of both nostalgia and hype for a major new update.Posted Jul 20, 2016 by William Murphy

The Social Beauty of Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go - Columns

Like so many of you, we’ve been playing Pokémon Go a lot since it launched this week. And we’ve noticed something pretty amazing happening around the game… it’s got millions people playing together, in real life, as strangers. Pokémon Go has essentially become the world’s biggest MMO in a matter of days.Posted Jul 9, 2016 by William Murphy

So Close, But Not Quite - The New Site Re-Launches July 25th

General - Columns

After hours and hours of prepping, tweaking, massaging content - we launched the new MMORPG.com site around midnight EST last night. The site functionality itself was ready, if needing a bit of polish. What wasn't ready? The code base and the infrastructure. For now, we're back to the old site, but not for long!Posted Jun 22, 2016 by William Murphy

The New MMORPG.com Arrives Next Week

General - Editorials

The time has finally come. Our brand new site design is almost ready to go live. This coming Tuesday, June 21st, MMORPG.com will be down for maintenance for an estimated 24 hours as we bring over the new site and migrate all the data from the old one. Read on for what it all means for you, our loyal readers.Posted Jun 17, 2016 by William Murphy

Restream Chat: A Godsend for Streamers

General - Editorials

Streaming isn’t for everyone. Some people love to watch, some love to actually be the streamer, and others couldn’t care less about the idea of people watching other people game. But for those who do actually cast, there’s a lot of logistics behind being a good participatory streamer. And there’s a set of tools I’ve been using for months now that makes being an interactive caster an easy task: Restream and Restream Chat.Posted Jun 8, 2016 by William Murphy

Six Reasons to Watch Revelation Online

Revelation Online - Editorials

Just yesterday, rather out of the blue, it was announced that My.Com (Skyforge, Armored Warfare) will be bringing NetEase’s popular eastern MMORPG Revelation Online into the EU and NA territories. We’ve done a little research, and are sharing with you some of the reasons that you might want to keep your eyes on this import MMO.Posted Jun 7, 2016 by William Murphy

Overwatch & Battleborn - WoW and EQ2 Redux

General - Editorials

Now that they’re both in the wild, the war rages on between fans of Battleborn and Overwatch – two similar (at first glance) games competing for gamers’ attention this summer. While there’s little doubt that Blizzard’s shooter is dominating the marketing airwaves, our own Suzie Ford recently penned a column on why you can love and play both. But for Bill Murphy, there are some obvious parallels to two rival MMOs from 2004…Posted May 25, 2016 by William Murphy

Duelyst: A Fine Mix of Hearthstone and Final Fantasy Tactics

General - Previews

If you haven’t yet played Duelyst, you really should. A mix of CCG with a tactical battlefield like Final Fantasy Tactics, and a deep lore and history akin to a fine Joe Abercrombie novel, Duelyst is something special. We recently sat down with developer Counterplay Games founder and CEO Keith Lee to chat about the game’s progress since funding in 2014, and its impending launch and the future.Posted Apr 21, 2016 by William Murphy

The MMORPG is Dead, Long Live the MMORPG

General - Editorials

A while back at PAX Prime, Goblinworks’ former CEO Ryan Dancey said that he believed WildStar would very likely be the last big budget MMORPG for some time. Many, though hopeful we were, never expected EverQuest Next to come out in any state resembling its proposed ideas. Now, with the former on the ropes, and the latter completely cancelled, pundits and fans alike are bemoaning the death of the MMORPG. Which, not surprisingly, is something that’s been heralded for years.Posted Mar 14, 2016 by William Murphy

What AAA MMOs Are Being Made That We Don’t Know About Yet?

General - Columns

The MMO genre is absolutely one of the most lucrative in gaming, with millions of players around the globe, across PCs and now consoles. But there’s one thing publishers and investors realize after a decade of chasing Azeroth… you can’t replicate what WoW managed to do. That said, everyone knows that long-term returns on investment can be gained with the right project. Today, we’re going to look at AAA studios I expect are making a new MMO, even if they haven’t announced it yet.Posted Feb 3, 2016 by William Murphy

We Need a Hero

General - Editorials

During the heady days of post-Azeroth consumer boom and investor interest, the MMORPG was booming. So many new games… and so many that didn’t meet expectations of consumers or investors. Now, 11 years after the launch of World of Warcraft, it’s clearer now than ever before: we need a hero to save us from extinction.Posted Nov 24, 2015 by William Murphy
