Waiting for WoW’s Next Expansion

General -  Column

How long is too long to wait for an expansion? That’s the question many WoW players are asking themselves after learning that content patch 6.2 will likely be the final one for Warlords of Draenor. This week we look at the hopeful but skeptical response from the blogosphere.Posted Jul 8, 2015 by Jessica Cook

Talking a New Golden Age of RPGs with Brian Fargo

General -  Interview

The RPG genre has never been so filled with amazing content. This year some major titles are hitting the scene with successful games like The Witcher and Fallout 4 on the menu, anyone can see that a new golden age of RPGs is here. InXile Entertainment is right in the driver’s seat for the Indie scene with games like Wasteland 2, Torment: Tides of Numenera, and a new take on The Bard’s Tale.Posted Jul 8, 2015 by Garrett Fuller

Enough With the Veteran Rank Ping Pong

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

Players of The Elder Scrolls Online who have been around for a while know that the game underwent many large changes over the past year. I have praised Zenimax for the dedication to making improvements and listening to the community on certain points during that time. Yet, now that we’re getting our first hints at future content to come, with promises that mid-July will begin reveals about The Imperial City and more, Veteran Ranks are beginning to feel like a bit of a drag on the system.Posted Jul 8, 2015 by Christina Gonzalez

E3 2015 - Hands On and Preview of Bedlam

General -  Preview

Once in a good long while, a game shows up with such a crazy amalgam of genres that your interest might be piqued before hearing anything else about it. Bedlam, a new Roguelike tactical-strategy RPG from Skyshine Games, is one of those such titles. It’s a post-apocalyptic, cyberpunk game with influences from Mad Max, Fallout, Domination Alley, and basically all of the 1980s. Thematically, it looks a lot like Gamma World, and its gameplay is comprised of a mix between Oregon Trail and chess.Posted Jul 7, 2015 by Som Pourfarzaneh

General -  Preview

At June’s E3 event in Los Angeles we got to speak with some of the good folk over at Stoic, and also some hands-on time with Banner Saga 2, and let me tell you, as a huge fan of Banner Sage, this game looks to be an amazing extension of its well-received progenitor.Posted Jul 7, 2015 by Terry OBrien

Could The Chronicles of the Spellborn Return?

General -  Column

I was a huge fan of The Chronicles of Spellborn, an ill-fated (and ahead-of-its-time) MMORPG that semi-tragically disappeared a few years ago. I enjoyed its unique setting, art style and combat mechanics, but I also knew that it was never to be smooth sailing for the game. After all, it featured not only a grind and a challenge but could be hard to run on anything less than gaming machines (at the time) and characters had to hoof it from place to place.

Power Rankings: MOBAs

General -  Column

It all began with a mod. While some observers trace the history of the mobile online battle arena category back as far as the 1989 Sega console game Herzog Zwei, it's more common to cite Aeon of Strife. A fan-made StarCraft custom map released nine years later, it was four on four, but with a player squad vs. an AI one and without leveling up. It was also the inspiration for the 2003 Warcraft III mod, Defense of the Ancients, which featured two human teams and in-match hero advancement. Posted Jul 7, 2015 by Richard Aihoshi

Is Adding More HP to World Bosses Enough?

Guild Wars 2 -  Column

The balance of power between players and world bosses has shifted once again! We’ve become so good at killing these monsters that they needed an HP boost! But is it too much and does it actually make these encounters more of a challenge? Posted Jul 6, 2015 by David North

5 Reasons Why We Still Love MMOs

General -  Column

It’s easy to get carried away with cynicism. The MMO market is lacking in both quality and quantity for new releases, as well as overall diversity. We’ve reached a point where the games available cater to a wide range of different audiences and anything new is seen as little more than a hybrid of concepts or unappealing to the mass market. Innovation isn’t dead; it’s just harder to come by these days.Posted Jul 6, 2015 by David Jagneaux

A Traitor in Our Midst

Lost Dimension -  Preview

To label Lost Dimension as either a traditional or modern JRPG would be a misnomer. Atlus’ newest PS3/Vita game shares a lot of the same tropes that we’ve come to expect from conventional Japanese roleplaying games, with a fresh approach to gameplay and world design that has the potential to pique your interest from the get-go.Posted Jul 5, 2015 by Som Pourfarzaneh

The Series Ends on a Flat Note

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III -  Review

How to Make Military Shooter MMOs Better

General -  Column

I often wish I could enjoy realistic military shooters like World of Tanks. I have tried them before, and the closest I came to joy was when I was piloting an old aircraft over a massive battlefield... then I was shot down. Because these games are skill-based shooters, it’s often the case that when you die you just stay dead; there’s no room for error. The last time I played World of Tanks I grew so impatient I just logged out. I probably appeared to be the world’s most sore loser.Posted Jul 4, 2015 by Beau Hindman

Tearing Into Terror’s Hoard Card Packs

Wizard101 -  Preview

The latest Hoard Card Pack from Wizard101 is named the Terror’s Hoard Pack, and I tore into them this week. I’m not usually a big customer of the Hoard packs; due to the vile hate the RNG gods apparently feel for me, I don’t usually spend crowns on them. At first I refused to buy them until they changed the name to the Alliance Card Packs. Then I realized it was “Hoard” as in “stash,” not the orcs of Azeroth, so I gave up that idea.Posted Jul 3, 2015 by Christina IceDreamer

Early Access Coming This Summer!

Warhammer 40.000: Eternal Crusade -  Preview

Let's do a quick rundown of what we learned at E3: Early Access is coming, and sooner rather than later, the game engine has been determined and revealed, and while no dates have been established yet, Eternal Crusade will be coming to Xbone and PS4. There are also new screenies and a new trailer coming, but those things are less exciting than the big three, which we will now look at a little closer.Posted Jul 3, 2015 by Terry OBrien

Victor muses about the Echo, a story element in Final Fantasy XIV that allows Heavensward gating to seem less annoying from a lore standpoint.Posted Jul 3, 2015 by Victor Barreiro Jr.
