Four Myths about the Video Games Industry

General -  Column

If we take a look at the video games industry as a whole, there are three broad groups of actors: developers, consumers, and press. Developers, of course, do the dirty work of creating within our favorite medium (and are often represented by publishers), while consumers shape the direction of the industry by influencing its supply and demand with their wallets.

Crafting and Galactic Strongholds

Star Wars: The Old Republic -  Column

We've all been trained long enough by the folks at BioWare Austin to remember that they'll tell us when they tell us and there isn't much we can do to hurry the process up. So I'm going to be constructive and cover some of the basics of how Galactic Strongholds has finally given crafters something relatively meaningful to do since the advent of the massive glut of orange moddable gear.

Review in Progress 3 - Farmville Deluxe

ArcheAge -  General

ArcheAge is starting to become as addicting as Farmville. Only in this case, I don’t really hate myself for liking the game. I’ve just spent inordinate amounts of time roving the countryside, exploring crafting, and dabbling in a whole bunch of other things. The question I ask myself though is: am I focused on ArcheAge’s crafting and farming because they’re fun, or is it because the questing and combat progression is so old hat?Posted Oct 2, 2014 by William Murphy

State of the Game: Rewarding Loyalty

General -  Column

When players support your game in its pimply, awkward, squeaky-voice stage, you reward them appropriately when the cocoon bursts open to reveal a beautiful butterfly. But what you never, ever do is later offer those early founder's rewards in the cash shop for a few extra bucks. It's just not worth it. Betraying loyalty like that is a sure-fire way to lose the respect of those people who would probably still play your game after the tourists have come and gone.Posted Oct 2, 2014 by Shawn Schuster

The Most Customizable RPG Ever from BioWare

Dragon Age: Inquisition -  Interview

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

Halloween is nearly upon us, and this year for all of those who were looking for a brand new, candy-filled, time-traveling adventure, Costume Quest 2 is on the horizon.

What’s Up With the Console Versions?

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

When it comes to The Elder Scrolls Online, ZeniMax has published frequent roadmaps for where the game will go. Yet, after delaying the console edition in May for “approximately six more months of development”, the journey of ESO on consoles is still shrouded in mystery. Here are some reasons why patience will be key to the payoff should you want to run around Tamriel on your couch, and why waiting could be the best (or worst) decision for the game’s console future.Posted Oct 1, 2014 by Christina Gonzalez

Hits and Misses of Advance Pack 2

Marvel Heroes 2015 -  Column

Gazillion recently unveiled Advance Pack 2 for Marvel Heroes; these are characters players can look forward to adding to their roster in 2015. Not only is the 2015 roster a bit underwhelming, but the pack also replaced bonus Fortune Cards with boosts. Posted Oct 1, 2014 by Michael Bitton

Survival & Sandbox Combined

Forsaken Uprising -  Preview

Survival games have been all the rave the last few years and we have seen just about every flavor imaginable. We have also seen numerous construction games being developed to provide a virtual sandbox for every to play in. What we haven’t seen too many of is a marriage of these two types of games and put into the same package.Posted Sep 30, 2014 by Franklin Rinaldi

Blizzard's Titanic Question

General -  Column

Last week, Blizzard revealed it had cancelled Project Titan, which can now lay claim to a couple of rather dubious honors. It's certainly the most eagerly and widely awaited MMOG to be killed off before we actually knew what it was, and it may also hold the record for being in the works longer than any endeavor that was never announced. In any case, its demise raises an enormous question. What will the company do instead? Posted Sep 30, 2014 by Richard Aihoshi

The Struggle is Real

ArcheAge -  Column

Why Looking Good Matters

Guild Wars 2 -  Column

Some players worry about how good combat is in a game. Others look for a compelling storyline. Yet one of the strongest concerns players can have, is how good can they make their character look. Forget using PvP skills to brag, some players dominate, and cause pure envy with just their looks. Watch out, because, these players exist in every MMO, including Guild Wars 2.Posted Sep 29, 2014 by David North

Titan Seemed Made For All & That Was its Downfall

General -  Column

Hearing the news that Blizzard had canceled the MMO project it had codenamed Titan after seven years of development, I can’t say I was surprised. What I really was was curious just what the game was planned to be. Leaks emerged soon afterward, and if they are to be believed, Titan might have been a game that offered something for every type of player. Yet the ambitiousness of the project could also be why it ultimately failed before ever being fully realized. Posted Sep 29, 2014 by Christina Gonzalez

Final Fantasy 15: The Death Throes of the Series

General -  Column

Final Fantasy as we know it is dead. Somewhere along the line, developers abandoned fantasy and intrigue for Lincolns and high technology. Is the series better for it? Fans are clamoring for more after the reveal of the Final Fantasy XV trailer at this year’s Tokyo Games Show but our author isn’t so sure it spells good things for the franchise in the long term.

Why Did Omeed Go?

Landmark -  Column

What did Omeed Dariani mean when he referred to a community-first marketing approach? What was SOE doing with its marketing that made him want to try to steer the marketing direction in a different way and eventually leave? Today, we’ll try and see if we can better understand that thought process.Posted Sep 26, 2014 by Victor Barreiro Jr.
