The Lucrative Way to Play

PlanetSide 2

We met with SOE’s Planetside 2 team recently, specifically Art Director Tramell Ray Isaac, to chat about the game’s ongoing progress, PS4 development, mission system, Hossin map, but mainly the sheer astounding success of the Player Studio.

Trion’s Glyph Aims to Make You Not Hate Launchers

The first thing I thought when Trion announced its Glyph game launcher and sales platform was admittedly, “God, not another one.” Then, after talking to Scott Hartsman and Anais Grueb from the developer and publishing parent, my reservation has moved to bright optimism. Trion’s goal isn’t to compete with Steam or shove their cash shop purchases down your throat. They plan on carefully curating and hand-picking the titles they partner with to be featured on Glyph.Posted Mar 19, 2014 by William Murphy

We were able to sit down last week with Lead PvP Designer Jen Gordy and Battlegrounds Designer Kevin Lee at the Carbine press event to chat.Posted Mar 13, 2014 by Christina Gonzalez

Heralding the Future of Games

Shroud of the Avatar

After spending some time with Richard Garriott last week, there were a bunch of topics that we discussed which did not make it on video. One of the main ideas was where video games are going, especially MMOs. With both Shroud of the Avatar and Star Citizen doing so well with crowd funding the games are really more about community than ever before. This led to the discussion of why Shroud of the Avatar will herald in a new era of games that continue to bring players together on many levels.Posted Mar 7, 2014 by Garrett Fuller

How the Community is Shaping Garriott’s Ultimate RPG

Shroud of the Avatar

Squadron 42 with Erin Roberts

Star Citizen

Erin Roberts graciously agreed to give me his first interview with a US-based audience and I learned a lot about Star Citizen’s optional introductory military campaign. While SC is an MMO, the S42 mission pack will be sort of a tutorial for new players. Today we’re going to take a look at what sorts of missions you should expect to see, what options players will have going into those missions, and what the success or failure of those missions will do to impact the rest of the campaign.Posted Feb 24, 2014 by Red Thomas
