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

The Most Customizable RPG Ever from BioWare

Dragon Age: Inquisition

The Dragon Age series is one of the preeminent role playing series of all time and one of its hallmarks is Bioware’s commitment to giving players the ability to create a totally unique experience. In past games, character creation has been robust but other areas of customization have been missing to one degree or another. 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

Founder and Rockstar Creator Turn BLOX Into Bucks

Roblox

This week's Microsoft $2.5 billion buyout of Minecraft made the appeal of the sandbox genre crystal clear; in light of that, is it any wonder game developers big and small are trying to get in on the action? Quickly gaining ground in sandbox enthusiasts' collective consciousness is ROBLOX Corporation and its attendant online entertainment site, ROBLOX.com. Posted Sep 20, 2014 by Neilie Johnson

Inspired by 90s-Style RPGs with a Twist

Dragon Fin Soup

Our first demo of Dragon Fin Soup came at PAX East, and the small team at Grimm Bros was coming off a more than healthy response to its then-unfinished Kickstarter campaign for the game. Months later, with the bulk of the crowdfunding behind the game, as well as further development, Grimm Bros took Dragon Fin Soup to PAX Prime, where we got to chat with CEO and developer Ash Monif and check out what's new.Posted Sep 17, 2014 by Christina Gonzalez

Boldly Blazing a Trail in Space

Star Trek Online

Next February marks Star Trek Online's fifth anniversary. It's hard to believe it's been that long, especially given the fact that, on launch, STO was less than spectacularly received. Many games would have closed under the pressure but developer Cryptic Studios and publisher Perfect World Entertainment were determined to bring an authentic Star Trek experience to gamers. In other words, Cryptic and PWE did not give up.Posted Sep 16, 2014 by Suzie Ford

Why the Labor System is Good

ArcheAge

This isn’t going to make me popular, but I’m going to come out and say it just like Maccarthur says on our forums, I actually kind of like the labor point system. Before the pitchforks come out and people start claiming I’m pro “Pay 2 Win”, let me explain. While I think there could be some improvements to the system, I’m also fairly confident in my belief that the Labor system is better for the overall health of the economy and the game XLGAMES wants us to play.Posted Sep 5, 2014 by William Murphy

Checking in on Update 9

Shroud of the Avatar

Last week I hosted a livestream interview with Richard Garriott and Starr Long of Portalarium. Portalarium is currently working on Shroud of the Avatar. When I caught up with Richard and Starr they were at DargonCon in Atlanta showing off their game. At the same time other members of the Portalarium team were present at PAX Prime in Seattle. I asked Richard and Starr about the latest news with update 9 and about what we could expect in update 10. Posted Sep 4, 2014 by Robert Lashley

Creating the Battle Arena

Landmark

Recently at SOE Live it was announced that PVP and more was coming to Landmark, and our own Jean Prior was there to give us a Preview. This got me excited, so I sought out David Georgeson Director of Development at PAX Prime to get a better understanding on how PVP came about and why it's part of a game that started as a building game. The answers were surprising but make perfect sense.Posted Sep 4, 2014 by Franklin Rinaldi
