Columnists - The RPG Files

In this "whenever we feel like it" column, we'll be talking about, reviewing, and previewing all the best and brightest RPGs coming to the market, even if they're not "MMO" in nature.

Dragon Age's Hinterlands Unveiled

General -  Column

Another week has gone by and that means more RPG news is on the offer. Thankfully, the RPG Files is here with all the news that’s fit to print, presented to you in the special, snarky way that only we can. This week we have a victory for gender equality, an extended look at Dragon Age: Inquisition, a new game from one of the producers of The Witcher coming to stores, the many collector’s editions of Bungie’s Destiny, and more. There’s always more.Posted Jul 11, 2014 by Christopher Coke

The Week in RPGs for July 4th

General -  Column

The post-E3 lull doesn’t have us down! It’s another full week of RPG news here at the RPG Files. For the week of July 3rd, we have a new Dragon Age character reveal, a Witcher spin-off, Destiny predictions, and another case of professional gaming as a boys’ club. Read on for all that and more!Posted Jul 4, 2014 by Christopher Coke

Dungeon of the Endless Preview

Dungeon of the Endless -  Preview

Dungeon of the Endless is a bit of a mind-bender to describe. In fact, when I first heard of it, I had trouble conceptualizing what the game even was. A rogue-like melded with tower defense? What does that even look like? If ever there were two genres I didn’t expect to meet, those were it. Imagine my surprise when I found that it’s also a full-fledged RPG with definite RTS leanings. Mind. Blown.Posted Jun 27, 2014 by Christopher Coke

Read on for that and much more!Posted Jun 20, 2014 by Christopher Coke

Warhammer: Carnage: A First Look

General -  Preview

Action RPGs continue to get better on mobile platforms. Fans of the in depth Warhammer 40,000 universe will be excited to fight their way through all kinds of foes in the upcoming moble side-scrolling RPG: Carnage. The game puts players in the super armor of a Space Marine and has them fend off Orks and other baddies. We spoke to Kayla Kinnunen about the project to get an idea of what it is like to put the epic universe into a much smaller platform. Posted May 5, 2014 by Garrett Fuller

Grim Dawn: A Gritty, Visceral Action RPG

General -  Preview

Members of the original TQ team banded together to form Crate Entertainment, now hard at work on another action RPG, Grim Dawn. Grim Dawn uses a modernized version of the game engine developed for Titan Quest and is currently in alpha testing on Steam. As the name implies, the world is a grim and depressing place. Humanity is quite literally on the verge of extinction with two warring factions bent on its destruction. Posted Mar 14, 2014 by Suzie Ford

Spellforce 2: Demons of the Past Review

General -  Column

It isn’t often you get to play a game that feels authentically like it was made 8 years ago. While it may be a bit of an exaggeration to describe Spellforce 2: Demons of the Past in such a way, it also isn’t very far off. With Demons of the Past, we are not only getting a standalone expansion in the series that doesn’t require owning previous iterations, but we are also finally seeing the end of the Spellforce 2 story.Posted Jan 20, 2014 by David Jagneaux

Wasteland 2: About 30% Finished and Awesome

General -  Preview

One of my all-time-top-ten-life-decisions (hey, I'm 23 there haven't been many) is when I traded-in Wario Land on Gameboy and made off with Fallout 2. In an act of incredible foresight, and laughable PEGI standards, I managed to snag one of the greatest RPGs ever simply on the basis that I thought the 'guy on the box looks proper cool'.Posted Jan 10, 2014 by Adam Tingle

What Makes a Role Playing Game?

General -  Column

Some of you may have noticed over the past few weeks the site has covered a number of RPGs. This subtle shift may indicate changes that are coming to the website, or the editor might just be toying with the heartstrings of a middle aged man. Either way those articles have prompted me to start thinking lately on what makes a game a RPG?Posted Jan 9, 2014 by Robert Lashley

Edge of Space - The World is Alive & Working Against You

General -  Column

In our latest RPG Files, we take a look at a brand new sandbox title, Edge of Space, that is currently in its beta phase of development. Described as a world hostile to players, it's a game that should have sandboxers excited. Read on to find out more.Posted Dec 27, 2013 by Christina Gonzalez

Baldur's Gate 2 Enhanced Edition: D&D Perfection

General -  Column

Most MMO players look fondly back at one or two single player RPGs that 'changed their lives'. One of the most commonly heard names is Baldur's Gate 2. Recently an 'enhanced edition' arrived on scene. We take a look at how the new edition meets a new generation of gamers in today's RPG Files. Read on and then let us know about your BG2 memories and experiences with the enhanced edition in the comments.Posted Dec 24, 2013 by Adam Tingle

Van Helsing: Staying True to Action-RPG

General -  Interview

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing may not be an MMO, but as an independently made ARPG, it's something we think you all ought to take notice of. Reaching cult-hit status via Steam success, a sequel has recently been announced. We interviewed NeoCore games about the first game and its forthcoming sequel.
