Top 10 Most Anticipated MMO Releases of 2015

General -  Column

Right now we are in a bit of a lull in the MMO release schedule. Crowdfunding campaigns like Crowfall keep on trucking and the astronomically high level of hype around Star Citizen continues to escalate, but both of those games are pretty far off from a real release. This list isn’t going to mention any current crowdfunding games, nor will it mention stuff that will go into a closed alpha of any kind – only open betas and full releases.Posted Mar 16, 2015 by David Jagneaux

5 Ways VR Headsets Could Improve MMOs

General -  Column

It seems like a new VR headset is announced every few months now. First there was the Oculus Rift, pioneering a newly discovered market segment. Now we have Sony’s Project Morpheus, Steam and HTC’s Vive, the Samsung Gear, and a whole host of other companies clamoring to get in on the topic while it’s still hot. Since they’re not widely owned yet and are still very much in developmental stages, it’s tough to tell exactly how it will play out, but it’s an exciting time for sure.Posted Mar 9, 2015 by David Jagneaux

5 Big Kickstarter MMOs to Keep an Eye On

General -  Column

Kickstarter is a massive driving force in game development today. Anyone with an idea and the skills to make it a reality can get their game funded and in the hands of gamers across the world. It’s an incredible time for game development. On the other hand, if a major studio with veterans at the helm want to create their dream project without the constraints that AAA development often entail, they can use crowdfunding to circumvent all of that as well.Posted Mar 2, 2015 by David Jagneaux

5 Best Features From Closed MMOGs

General -  Column

As with all too many other aspects of our lives, it can be temptingly easy to apply either binary or at least not highly differentiated thinking within the context of the MMO category. So, for instance, we tend to regard a game as either good or bad, or if we choose to add a third grouping, as mediocre. However, with a bit of reflection, I suspect many readers can name elements you remember from titles that weren't very well-received overall. Here are some of mine.

5 Tips for Being a Great Guild Leader

General -  Column

Being a guild leader is hard. It’s really hard. In fact, it may as well be considered a full-time job in a lot of cases. Between knowing all of your members just like a manager at work, running websites and forums just like a standard website owner, and organizing activities for everyone like some type of deranged virtual event planner, being a guild leader can bring out the best (or worst) in anyone.

5 Things that Crowfall's Countdown Could Reveal

Crowfall -  Column

The number one term applied to the development of Crowfall so far seems to be the H-word. Yes, folks, the hype train has left the station and it has a long journey ahead of it, but that's part of the fun of being an MMO fan, right? Many of us enjoy the excitement that comes from seeing a new MMO peek its head up over the horizon, as we hope and pray that it will fill the hole in our heart that was left after the last dozen games promised us the world.Posted Feb 13, 2015 by Shawn Schuster

Best MMOs to Play as a Couple on Valentine’s Day

General -  Column

Love is in the air this time of year. Stores are lines with pink and red decorations, flowers poke out in every direction, and romantic gifts are littered across the aisles. In fact, the upcoming holiday Valentine’s Day just so happens to be on a Saturday this year.Posted Feb 9, 2015 by David Jagneaux

5 Things We Want From Dragon’s Dogma Online

General -  Column

When I first played Dragon’s Dogma back at its launch in 2012, I felt like I had stumbled across something that would surely go down as a cult classic. It was rough around the edges, had some quirks that wouldn’t appeal to everyone, and lacked a true multiplayer mode. As it turns out, I wasn’t far off.Posted Feb 2, 2015 by David Jagneaux

Five MMORPG Sequels I'd Like To See

General -  Column

The concept of sequels is very familiar to anyone who plays video games, so much so that we basically expect any hit to spawn one, if not more. In the MMO space, the situation is somewhat different because the titles continue to grow and evolve over time. Accordingly, follow-ups aren't nearly as common. That said, it wasn't hard to come up with a handful that would potentially be of significant interest for me. Posted Jan 26, 2015 by Richard Aihoshi

5 Tips for Surviving the Apocalypse

H1Z1 -  Column

The zombie survival genre has grown to become something decidedly different from anything else in the industry. With a combination of elements from several different existing conventions, zombie survival games have worked out their own niche that continues to rise in popularity. It makes sense when you think about it. Posted Jan 19, 2015 by David Jagneaux

What to Do When Your Favorite RPG is Over

General -  Column

After nearly one hundred twenty hours, I finished my completionist run through Dragon Age: Inquisition today. As I sat staring at the credits and waiting for the short epilogue cinematic that would come after them, I was left with a curious sense of emptiness with a mental image of an empty calendar filled with endless days stretching out in front of me.Posted Jan 15, 2015 by Suzie Ford

5 Things MMOs Could Learn from Sword Art Online

General -  Column

Sword Art Online II recently wrapped up. I haven’t actually watched the second leg of the Sword Art Online story as I’m late to the party on this topic, but I’ve seen all of Sword Art Online I and was enamored with the concept. If you’re unaware, Sword Art Online, or SAO for short, is an anime about a group of people that get trapped inside of an MMORPG. The catch is that if they die in the game, they die in real life as well.Posted Jan 12, 2015 by David Jagneaux

The Best MMOs with Sailing

General -  Column

Now that the bold new year of 2015 is upon us and we’re striking out into unknown territory, I felt like it was only appropriate that we take a look at MMOs that let you embark on grand voyages of your own. When doing research for this list, I noticed that there are shockingly few MMOs with robust sea-based content. As a result, some of the games on this list feature sailing as an extra feature, while some of the games have sea adventures as the primary gameplay mechanic. Posted Jan 5, 2015 by David Jagneaux

General -  Column

Full-time jobs, children, spouses… It happens to all of us: the good things swoop in and steal game time right out from under you. It begs the question: are MMOs even for us anymore? We’ve been through the wringer and have your answer, and eight crucial tips to make sure you succeed. Posted Jan 2, 2015 by Christopher Coke

20 RPGs Coming in 2015

General -  Column

Another year has come and gone, and with that flurry of levels and experience points goes many of our most-wanted RPGs finally delivered. 2014 was a good year for roleplaying games with the likes of Dragon Age: Inquisition leading the pack but 2015 looks to be downright spectacular. We here at MMORPG have spent a lot of time discussing this year’s games, but with New Year’s Eve fast approaching, let’s look ahead to what next year has in store.Posted Dec 26, 2014 by Christopher Coke

The Top 5 Things We Want From MMOs in 2015

General -  Column

Well, 2014 is almost over. It has been a year full of…stuff. Overall, the gaming industry as a whole was pretty disappointing. It seems like the biggest moments of the year are underscored by horrible launches, broken games, greedy publishers, and lazy developers. There were plenty of bright spots, no doubt, but overall it’s hard to argue that the year wasn’t disappointing.Posted Dec 22, 2014 by David Jagneaux

5 Awesome Gift Ideas for the MMO Gamer

General -  Column

It’s that time of the year again. Depending on where you live, snow is falling, wind is blowing, the air is chilly, and fireplaces are roaring. Or if you’re like me in Northern California, weather is slightly colder on most days, but generally sunny and not all that much different most of the time. Either way, it’s the Holiday Season.

The Top 5 Browser-Based MMORPGs

General -  Column

We’ve all been there. We’re dying to play an MMO and get our fix and sometimes it doesn’t even have to be our go-to main game. Maybe your laptop can’t handle it, you’re out of town, or you don’t have the time to play a bigger game – whatever the reason, sometimes you just need a browser game to scratch that itch.

5 Non-Fantasy MMOG Concepts With Unfulfilled Potential

General -  Column

Starting when I was still a child, I've greatly enjoyed numerous incarnations of high fantasy. However, it has never been my only thematic area of interest. So, when it comes to MMOGs, I've always wanted more variety. Perhaps the ongoing growth of the category's audience signals that such a time is upon us or at least close at hand. Considering how the market is growing and evolving, here are some concepts that seem to hold unrealized potential. Posted Dec 1, 2014 by Richard Aihoshi

5 Reasons Why Dragon Age Would Make a Great MMO

General -  Column

My PlayStation 4 has been dominated by Dragon Age: Inquisition over the past week. In about 7 days, between working full-time, writing as a freelancer, balancing relationships, and several other things, I have somehow found nearly 20 hours of spare time to invest in Bioware’s latest epic – and I can tell I’m just now scratching the surface.Posted Nov 25, 2014 by David Jagneaux
