Chronicles of New Eden - Chance Ravinne Gets His Revenge

EVE Online -  Column

When most people were watching the fireworks on the cool evening of July 4th, Chance Ravinne, stealth bomber extraordinaire, was making his own. Where many prefer to beat their chests and flex their muscle flying some of EVE's largest, most expensive ships, Chance prefers the silent approach. He is dagger in the night, the cheetah in the reeds; waiting for that one moment a pilot drops his guard.Posted May 19, 2015 by Steven Messner

Power Rankings - MMOGs Currently In Beta

General -  Column

If we were to count all the MMOGs and quasi-MMOGs presently in various stages of testing, I have no doubt that the total would have three digits. Naturally, they'd differ widely with respect to how much interest they are generating. Frankly, we'd find a fair number that are effectively invisible, unknown except to the most ardent industry observers.Posted May 19, 2015 by Richard Aihoshi

Review in Progress #2: Misguided Player Agency

Pathfinder Online -  General

A couple weeks back, we began our review in progress for Pathfinder Online, since it’s both a.) in early access and b.) not wiping progress anymore. The review will be going on hiatus for a couple of weeks while I review The Witcher 3, but nevertheless this week I have some additional thoughts as I make my way through Goblinworks’ sandbox MMORPG.Posted May 18, 2015 by William Murphy

The Ban Hammer Swings to What Effect?

World of Warcraft -  Column

It has been quite a while since Blizzard issued a large number of World of Warcraft bans but last week saw that lull end with over 100,000 player accounts being blocked for bot usage. The most common program for which players were censured was the Honorbuddy bot program that essentially automates play during PvP matches and with plug ins that can also make certain PvE tasks automatic as well.Posted May 18, 2015 by Suzie Ford

Three Things MMOs Can Learn from Isometric RPGs

General -  Column

As a fan of the Shadowrun setting and isometric RPGs in general, I find it ludicrous that I’m so late to the party with playing Shadowrun Returns, but I’m loving Harebrained Schemes’ entry into the cyberpunk RPG genre. It manages to convincingly capture the Shadowrun ethos while, somewhat surprisingly, fit the game setting’s mechanics into a modern isometric RPG mold.Posted May 15, 2015 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Jon Peters on the Reaper Elite Spec

Guild Wars 2 -  Interview

Yesterday the Reaper was announced as the Necromancer's Elite Specialization in Guild Wars 2's upcoming Heart of Thorns expansion. We pestered ArenaNet's own Jon Peters for a little more detail on the spec, and this is what we managed to choke out of him. Posted May 15, 2015 by William Murphy

Not the MMO We Were Expecting, But Still Fun

Shadowrun Chronicles -  Review

The campaign exceeded its $500,000 goal, but, unfortunately, was delayed for quite a bit longer than anticipated until last week finally saw the release of the newly christened Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown. Thanks to years of feedback from hardcore Shadowrun players who backed the game, Shadowrun Chronicles evolved into something that is a bit different from the original Shadowrun Online idea.Posted May 15, 2015 by Shawn Schuster

Welcome to the Den of Kubrow Bonus Weeks

There are few things more satisfying than watching the small, innocent puppy you raised from birth grow into the strong and confident Grineer killing machine it was born to be. Posted May 14, 2015

Travel Back In Time with the Progression Server

EverQuest -  Preview

Every MMO gamer knows of the title “EverQuest.” Some of you actually played it, but the rest usually listen wearily while EQ veterans wax and wane about the so-called glory days. Regardless of your position on the game, there’s no doubting that EQ fans are some of the most passionate you’ll meet, and their insatiable appetite for nostalgia goes unrivaled.Posted May 14, 2015 by Derek McEnroe

Nekro: Charming but Dull in Early Access

General -  Preview

Essentially a prolonged paid beta, Early Access is a great tool for indies to keep the lights on as they work their way to official launch. But the newly coined development state has its own fair share of issues, chief among which is putting a clearly unfinished game out to the general public. That’s kind of where Nekro, from DarkForge Games, sits right now. It’s an Action RPG Strategy hybrid of a game with a novel setting and design, but it’s also just kind of boring to play.

Blade & Soul has seen continued growth, the company is in an overall better position, and second half releases are set to bring in an infusion of cash. There is nothing to worry about.Posted May 13, 2015 by Connor Wack
