The Game I Should Have Played

PoxNora -  Interview

I remember seeing PoxNora at SOE Live a few years ago. At the time, I was excited to get an initial look at PlanetSide 2, which was then in the later stages of development. PoxNora had been around for several years even at that time, and I remember thinking that I should go check it out, but I didn’t. Well, I corrected that former mistake this year at PAX South, and I was pretty impressed by what I found.Posted Jan 26, 2015 by Red Thomas

Our PAX South Interview With Mike O'Brien and Colin Johanson

Guild Wars 2 -  Interview

At PAX South, ArenaNet finally revealed the secrets they'd been keeping for so long. Heart of Thorns was announced, and with it came a flood of new information – and, naturally, more than a few questions.Posted Jan 26, 2015 by Jason Winter

We No Longer Truly Value MMOs (but Maybe That’s Okay!)

General -  Column

When a game’s payment model shifts, as happened last week with The Elder Scrolls Online becoming the latest game to undergo such a change, there’s always a pattern. The conversation almost always turns to the concept of value in comments flung around the internet like “That game wasn’t worth $15 a month” and “The game wasn’t worth a subscription”.

Identity: Out to Create an Ideal Game

General -  Interview

Identity was born out of an Arma 3 module called "Altis Life". Since then, the developers have been working to create their ideal game, one packed with unique and defining features. Check out our exclusive interview with John VanderZwet, CEO of Asylum Entertainment Inc. to find out more.Posted Jan 26, 2015 by Suzie Ford

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

Roccat Ryos TKL Pro Mechanical Keyboard

General -  Hardware Review

Being a PC gamer means rising to the challenge. Whether you casually play MMOs or are a competitive e-sports aficionado, at some point you’ve looked at your hardware and wondered whether it was time to upgrade. Most of us overlook the keyboard, or maybe make our choices based on the lighting options. That’s a problem, as the Roccat Ryos TKL mechanical keyboard so easily proves.Posted Jan 25, 2015 by Christopher Coke

Exclusive Interview with Adam Clegg and Jimmy Whisenhunt

H1Z1 -  Interview

We all know SOE is a huge company with tons of MMO experience. For a company like that to not have a scalable system in place for quickly handling unexpected numbers of players on the launch of a new IP after all these years is really mind-blowing. That’s why I went hunting for someone to crucify at PAX South earlier today.Posted Jan 25, 2015 by Red Thomas

Like an Overexplained Magic Trick

EverQuest Next -  Column

Victor wonders if SOE has taken away the magic of a video game by explaining the trick behind making it work.Posted Jan 25, 2015 by Victor Barreiro Jr.

Can Star Citizen Live Up to the Hype?

General -  Column

Star Citizen is one of the most highly anticipated games being developed in years. The game has defied expectation, time and again, and built up one of the most dedicated fanbases on the internet. This week, fans were lucky enough to receive an official path to release, a timetable for what to expect this year and the starry-eyed “commercial launch” of 2016.

Five Things We Want from a Borderlands MMO

General -  Column

I’ll admit it: Borderlands is one of my favorite single-player/multiplayer RPG series du jour. There’s something about Gearbox’s tried and true formula of wacky humor, satisfying gameplay, and insane amounts of loot that gets me hooked and looking forward to whatever kinds of crazy DLC updates they have planned.

State of the Game: Building the Mad Max MMO

General -  Column

An MMO set in the universe of Mad Max is something I've been clamoring for for years, but as with any popular IP-turned-online game, it's a touchy subject for die-hard fans. With the Fury Road movie and the single player game both on the horizon for this year, I thought it'd be a good time to revisit my favorite topic of all time: building a Mad Max MMO.Posted Jan 23, 2015 by Shawn Schuster

Release 14: Strong Start to a New Year

Shroud of the Avatar -  Column

The folks at Portalarium are getting ready to roll out their 14th release for Shroud of the Avatar, and of course they timed it just as PAX South was kicking off. I’m sure it was a diabolical plot to force me into cramming this article in before I get sucked into the pending media storm that follows any PAX. That’s why I drove up to Austin this week.

Cleaning the Litterbox

General -  Column

By people who pay attention to my gaming habits, I'm accused of being a themepark-only sort of MMO player. And lately, they're right... but it's not for lack of desire to get lost in a more free-form MMO experience. No, the problem with sandboxes is a simple one, if you ask me: there hasn't been a really good one in over a decade.Posted Jan 22, 2015 by William Murphy

My MMO Midlife Crisis

General -  Column

For the better part of a decade I played MMORPG’s almost exclusively. I would sprinkle in the smash hit from other genres that came along but chances are if you caught me playing a game it was a MMORPG. I was also a sheep for the PC master race campaign. Over the past year I have quickly evolved into something else. Probably something I should have been all along.Posted Jan 22, 2015 by Robert Lashley

What IS the Next Big Thing?

General -  Column

A lot of people have been loudly championing the idea that MMOs are a dying breed and that the golden era marked by World of Warcraft, Ultima Online, EverQuest, EverQuest 2, EVE Online and others is over. Yet developers, both ‘big house’ and indies alike, continue to make MMOs and players keep playing them.Posted Jan 22, 2015 by Suzie Ford

Building Upon Star Wars Galaxies' Crafting

Crowfall -  Interview

Crowfall has some mighty lofty goals for itself. The new MMORPG being made in Austin and helmed by Todd Coleman and Gordon Walton seeks to make the sandbox MMO something great again. And they've enlisted the help of some serious talent to do so: namely Thomas "Blixtev" Blair and Raph Koster. Today, we learn all about Blixtev's design for the crafting in Crowfall to build upon the near perfection that was Star Wars Galaxies.Posted Jan 22, 2015 by Thomas Blair

SOE’s H1Z1 and the Self-Inflicted Wound

H1Z1 -  Column

If SOE had simply said, “Hey. We’ve got this really cool feature in airdrops. These are our plans. What do you think?” the message it eventually got would have been loud and clear and the crisis would have been averted. Posted Jan 21, 2015 by Michael Bitton

The MMOs TGN is Dying For in 2015

General -  Other

The start of 2015 ushers in a new year of eagerly-anticipated releases. Finally, finally, finally we might get our hands on some of the biggest MMO games we’ve been holding out for since they were first announced so very long ago. So much is on the horizon, but we’ve whittled down our list to a Top Three of titles that we think will be the game-changers this year. Posted Jan 21, 2015
