5 MMOs That Have Lost Their Mojo

General -  Column

With hundreds of titles available and in development, the MMOG space is more competitive than ever. Accordingly, most don't gain much attention from either the player community or the media. Even for those that do, maintaining visibility, awareness and brand image over the long term can be a struggle, especially after the shiny newness wears off. Listed in order of age, here are some still-live games that retain little or none of the market mojo they once had. Posted Mar 23, 2015 by Richard Aihoshi

Pillars of Eternity -  Preview

Later this week, Pillars of Eternity launches after over 77,000 crowdfunding backers demanded it to happen.

Here are our first thoughts after several hours with the review copy.Posted Mar 23, 2015 by William Murphy

Are MMOs Becoming Too Casual?

General -  Column

If you’ve been around the world of MMOs for a while, you’ve probably heard it said: “MMOs are becoming more casual!” Sure, sometimes there’s a qualifier in there, but it’s a chestnut complaint. But is it true? Chris and Ryan sit down for another spirited debate and try to answer the question: Are MMOs Becoming Too Casual?Posted Mar 21, 2015 by Christopher Coke

Final Fantasy Type-0. Bloodborne. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. Pillars of Eternity. Over a short two weeks, we RPG fans are treated to an onslaught of quality games unlike any other month in recent memory. It’s a month to be excited for and you’d better believe we are! Here’s why.Posted Mar 20, 2015 by Christopher Coke

Can Heroes of the Storm Attain the Same Casual Success as Hearthstone?

General -  Column

I’m not quite sure how much money I spent on Magic Online when it initially began to gain some popularity, but I can tell you that even trying to estimate that number results in no small amount of embarrassment for me. I love TCGs, and have spent a good amount of time (and cash) dabbling in a range of games, from open-ended classics like Magic: The Gathering to more discrete releases such as The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game.Posted Mar 20, 2015 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Victory is Teamwork

Crowfall -  Column

It is said we campaign for the pleasure of the Gods. How can this be, we must be like ants that scurry across the world. Do they enjoy the battles for the sake of bloodshed in their names or is the conquest of champions who use their wits more than their brawn?Posted Mar 20, 2015 by Franklin Rinaldi

FFXI - The Ultimate Vana’diel Project

General -  Column

Instead of the regularly scheduled FFXIV or Everquest Next column, I thought we might take a bit of a detour, as a new announcement rocked the realm of Vana’diel earlier this week. Posted Mar 20, 2015 by Victor Barreiro Jr.

Masquerada PAX East Hands-On Preview

General -  Preview

When browsing through the list of games on display at the Indie Megabooth at this year’s PAX East, Witching Hour Studios’ Masquerada: Songs and Shadows immediately jumped out to me. The trailer for the 2.5D isometric RPG offered a glimpse at the game’s striking, French comic book inspired art style and “pause for tactics” combat system, which should be immediately familiar to anyone who has played BioWare CRPGs such as Baldur’s Gate or the various Dragon Age titles.

Jagex: A Not-So-Brief History of Not-RuneScape

General -  General

Earlier this year I wrote an article about Jagex in which I gave my hopes that, following the shutdown of Transformers Universe, the company wouldn't be too eager to announce another new MMO. Just a month or so out of that closure, we learned through a job placement announcement that yet another MMO is in the oven.Posted Mar 18, 2015 by Connor Wack

PAX East Hands-On Preview

Dragon Fin Soup -  Preview

Aptly named indie developer Grimm Bros. have put together a take on the classic tale of Little Red Riding Hood by the Grimm brothers with Dragon Fin Soup. In Dragon Fin Soup, you play as ‘Red Robin’, who is essentially the character of Little Red Riding Hood – if she were also a knife wielding, shotgun toting, raging alcoholic.

Does VR Have A Place In MMOs?

General -  Column

I spent my weekend with the wonderful community team from Kingsisle Entertainment (they work on Wizard101 and Pirate101) as they slowly walked up and down the aisles of the SXSW Gaming Expo. It is a free event (a good offset to the astronomical ticket prices that SXSW can often ask) and allows indie or smaller games to hook up with potential players. It also shows off new technologies, trends and even hosted video game museums with hands-on consoles. It was a blast, to say the least.Posted Mar 18, 2015 by Beau Hindman

Greetings fellow Crusaders, and it's time for another look into the world of Eternal Crusade. Actually, this week we are going to look, not only at Eternal Crusade, but at some other Games Workshop titles that are currently in production that have piqued my interest.Posted Mar 17, 2015 by Terry OBrien
