Three Things We Want from Persona 5

General -  Column

The Persona games comprise an exclusive type of club, in that if you haven’t spent any time with them, you likely won’t have any idea what they’re about. Truly, even if you have played some of them, you might still feel confused about why they’ve engendered such a huge cult following and a number of anime and film offshoots.Posted Jun 5, 2015 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Will Elder Scrolls Online Satisfy RPG Fans?

General -  Column

Zenimax emailed me this week. The email was a reminder that I’d paid my $20 to unlock the PS4 version of Elder Scrolls Online and that the game would be launching next Tuesday. I had the tingle, my friends; the little flurry of excitement just before a game you’re looking forward to. Then I remembered just how divided the game’s community was at launch. It makes me wonder, will ESO be a hit or will it just disappoint Elder Scrolls fans who don’t know what they’re in for?Posted Jun 5, 2015 by Christopher Coke

First Impressions of ARK Early Access

ARK: Survival Evolved -  Editorial

Let me put this out there: loads of wild dinosaurs, riding them, pooping, eating it, farming with it, PVE and PVP servers, loads of crafting and progression. 70-100 players per server for now, with hundreds promised down the road to launch in 2016. Does this sound like a game you might want to try? If so, read on because ARK: Survival Evolved is quickly becoming my sleeper of 2015.Posted Jun 5, 2015 by William Murphy

Satellite Reign: Insert Weather Pun Here

General -  Preview

As promised last week I’m back today with hands on impressions of Satellite Reign. The first thing I can tell you from the initial few hours that I spent in this cyberpunk city is the developers could have called this one Satellite Rain, because it did a lot of that. But all weather puns aside the game has promise if not mass appeal and fans of strategy games will want to pay attention to this one.Posted Jun 4, 2015 by Robert Lashley

The Great Tank Makeover

World of Tanks -  Preview

Games are made available on a new console all the time, not many however get a complete makeover from the ground up. World of Tanks is a great game on the Xbox360, but the visual and auditory makeover to bring it to the Xbox One is a work of art.Posted Jun 3, 2015 by Franklin Rinaldi

We Are Older Than Average Gamers

Camelot Unchained -  Column

I feel comfortable saying the majority of CU backers hailed from DAOC, which launched on October 10, 2001. Back then, MMORPGers were likely a bit ahead of the times, had a decent chunk of expendable income (or their parents did) and were likely more…um, “mature” (for lack of a better word) than the toddlers walking around playing phone “apps” these days.Posted Jun 3, 2015 by Timothy Eisenzimmer

What We Want from Fallout 4

General -  General

As Mike B will attest, Fallout is a special series for us here at While the series has never gotten an MMO or true online treatment, we’re still fans of the venerable and highly regarded franchise. And today, with the announcement of Fallout 4 from Bethesda, we figured there’s no better time to postulate about what we want to see in the newest version of the Wasteland.Posted Jun 3, 2015 by William Murphy

The Debate Over Pay to Win

General -  Column

The way we pay for games is the hot topic yet again in the blogosphere. Is “pay to win” a bad thing for MMOs, or should we just accept it as the future of the industry?Posted Jun 3, 2015 by Jessica Cook

The Reason I Canceled My Subscription

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

Yes, you’re reading that right, I canceled my ESO subscription last week. The Elder Scrolls Online is a great game and anyone who is thinking of purchasing it for the consoles when it releases on June 9th I would still recommend them to do so. There is no denying that ESO is easily worth its initial investment but I can’t say with confidence that it’s worth the continuous investment.Posted Jun 3, 2015 by Ryan Getchell

The New Mechlab Heralds Major Changes

MechWarrior Online -  Preview

It’s been a while since we heard from MechWarrior Online and its developer Piranha Games. There’s a good reason for that. Since last year, Piranha took over sole-ownership of the game and its development and has been focusing hard on delivering a stream of updates asked for by its players. It’s been a difficulty five months or so, but now Piranha is ready to show off all of its hard work and unveil plans for its latest big update.Posted Jun 2, 2015 by William Murphy

The Active Passive Training Bottleneck

Crowfall -  Column

Characters are Persistent, but Campaign Worlds are not, this is the tagline for Crowfall. As an Immortal Champion in an eternal War of the Gods, we have to choose our path after rebirth, actively and passively training towards our desired skillset. However, is there enough training options to the paths we pick that are flexible enough to maintain a sense of progress or is character progress just a smokescreen to choice?Posted Jun 2, 2015 by Franklin Rinaldi

Five Things We Want from Western Blade & Soul

Blade & Soul -  Column

Whenever an MMO is localized to the West from a different country, there are a whole host of challenges involved. Not only does all of the dialogue have to be translated, but content has to be localized as well. Material may have to be changed or censored or updated for a new audience and payment models are almost never the same. Posted Jun 1, 2015 by David Jagneaux

Is the Barrier to Entry too Steep?

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn -  Column

In a post titled, “New players and the expansion. Massive barrier to entry. You have been warned,” user Foomerang discussed how the currently-known requirements to access Heavensward content in the future were a bit of a frustrating thing for someone who preferred playing the game as a crafter-gatherer type. So, how bad is it really?Posted May 29, 2015 by Victor Barreiro Jr.
