Dragon Age: Inquisition’s Reputation Grind

The video games industry is relatively porous, and it’s no secret that its subgenres have been borrowing from one another for quite some time. First-person behemoths like Call of Duty have been iteratively employing RPG-like mechanics to bolster their replayability, while MMORPGs such as TERA have taken cues from third-person action games to improve upon traditional MMO combat.

Gilded Wasteland - Focused on Guild and Large Group Play

Swordsman

Swordman is the new martial arts MMO from Perfect World Entertainment that just released in North America on July 29th of this year.

A Great Deal of Hope for the Newly Minted FPS Module

Star Citizen

Since the idea was introduced as a stretch goal, the inclusion of a first person shooter component in Star Citizen has been a somewhat debated topic. There have been legitimate questions about how feasible it would be to add that sort of thing in an already ambitious project, and many have concerns that the attempt might come off feeling cheap or slapped in. We’ve all seen those games where something was just forced in for the extra bullet on the box.Posted Nov 1, 2014 by Red Thomas

The Future of Crafting

WildStar

Where crafting fits in the grand scope of WildStar has been unclear for some time. While we have seen numerous outflows of information about itemization, we haven’t seen much specific to crafting. There is a prevalent feeling of dissatisfaction within the crafting community with regards to specialization, craftings place in the economic footprint and the burden of the RNG monster always affecting the output of items more than the skill of the craftsman.Posted Oct 6, 2014 by Franklin Rinaldi

Enter Dragon Age: Inquisition and Bioware’s evolution into a highly customizable experience that continues through the final moments of the game. Posted Oct 2, 2014 by Suzie Ford
