Should Games Make Political Statements?

General -  Column

Gamergate has invaded the public consciousness. What was once a simple conversation about ethics in gaming journalism has spiraled into an all-out shouting match with anything progressive firmly falling in the movement’s sights and any critics being quickly labeled as bigots. As I’ve played through Dragon Age: Inquisition, encountering characters of every stripe and sexuality, my mind kept returning to these themes. Did Bioware include this character or that for a reason?

Issue 10 Nightmare in the Dream Palace Preview

The Secret World -  Preview

The Secret World issue 10: Nightmare in the Dream Palace is live, and we recently had the chance to run around the other side of Tokyo in a look at the brand new content. When we last left issue 9, there had been a huge explosion that conveniently reduced the quarantine wall that had been blocking off one side of Tokyo from the other, to more of an inconvenience than an obstacle. Issue 9 worked to lay down the foundations of new systems and new strategies, specifically having to do with Aegis. Posted Dec 5, 2014 by Christina Gonzalez

Three Things Destiny Can Do To Improve

Destiny -  Column

In a column last month, I took a look at the potential for good gameplay to trump other outdated systems and keep us hooked on otherwise mediocre games. The example I used was Destiny, which has a solid core shooter experience but is relatively uninteresting in the story, content, and loot departments. I’ve been playing more of Bungie’s pseudo-MMOFPS, and suffice it to say that even its fun twitch gameplay is starting to wear thin.Posted Dec 5, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Warlords of Draenor - Bringing Back the Glory Days

World of Warcraft -  Review

Right from the get-go, it needs to be said that Warlords of Draenor is a fantastic expansion. It has hit many of the right notes in all the right ways beginning with the stat and skill pruning that has been much discussed over the last year or so. Players have fewer skills, but better ones overall. Traveling through the world on the way to 100, fighting in both normal and heroic dungeons, anywhere in Draenor requires thought.Posted Dec 5, 2014 by Suzie Ford

Rivals' Features for EQ Next, Part 1

EverQuest Next -  Column

Hey folks! We’ll be taking a bit of a detour today from our regularly scheduled updates of Landmark to discuss the future of Everquest Next. It’s not a real future for Everquest Next, but an imagined future where Everquest Next launches with some features thrown in there adapted from other games.Posted Dec 5, 2014 by Victor Barreiro Jr.

TERA: Rising -  Preview

Northern Arun has long been shrouded in mystery and cut off from the rest of the world. Fate of Arun, the first Expansion to TERA, takes you to the undiscovered homeland of the barakas to explore savage jungles and colossal ruins. A land full of fearsome enemies and potentially new allies in need your help to throw off the yoke of tyranny. Posted Dec 5, 2014 by Franklin Rinaldi

Diving into the Heart of Madness

Dungeons & Dragons Online -  Preview

The Heart of Madness, Update 24, is Dungeon and Dragons Online's most recent addition. There will be three Xoriat themed dungeons in Eberron, and one new free Wizards of the Coast dungeon based on the Tyranny of Dragons story line. There are also some great system updates, such as Weapon Auras, Monster Champions and newly upgraded Barbarian enhancement trees.Posted Dec 4, 2014 by Michael Haro

The Value of 12X Class XP

Star Wars: The Old Republic -  Column

With the launch of early access for Shadow of Revan on Tuesday, Star Wars: the Old Republic retired a subscriber perk that had allowed hordes of filthy casuals like myself to finally get through each class story and have a character at the now-previous level cap. Today's article is about that perk and whether it ultimately had value to the game. Posted Dec 4, 2014 by Jean Prior

The Coliseum is PVP for PVE Fans

TERA: Rising -  Preview

Coliseum is a competitive mode that places two teams of three players each in opposition to one another in a timed battle to kill as many BAMs (Big Ass Monsters) as possible within a given time frame. Set up to cater to players from levels 60-65, gear is equalized on entering the match which consists of three five-minute rounds. Posted Dec 4, 2014 by Suzie Ford

Grouping Up

World of Warcraft -  Column

Much has occurred since my inaugural column on World of Warcraft. I’ve managed to climb to the giddy heights of level 100, tearing through the Spires of Arak and rolling hills of Nagrand on my way. I’ve improved my garrison, expanding it to the maximum size possible and recruiting new followers. And I’ve been diving into group content, from dungeons through to heroics and even the Molten Core Raid.Posted Dec 4, 2014 by Gareth Harmer

A Question of Value

General -  Column

At MMORPG.com we have 5 categories that we use to rate MMOs and RPGs: Gameplay, Visuals and Sound, Polish, Longevity, Value. For the MMO variants we add a sixth category Social into the mix. While all categories are inherently subjective, across all mediums each reviewer brings their own personal bias to a review whether they are attempting to remain impartial or not, I’ve recently been spending a great deal of time contemplating the subjective nature of our value scores.Posted Dec 4, 2014 by Robert Lashley

Moonrise -  Developer Journal

Today Andy is joined by Moonrise designer Brian Giaime, and together they’ll discuss the process used to name the many unusual creatures (collectively known as Solari) inhabiting the game world.Posted Dec 3, 2014 by Andy Collins

Seeds of Truth Review and Speculation

Guild Wars 2 -  Preview

It’s easy to dismiss Guild Wars 2’s Living World updates as “not enough content” if you’re not a fan of the game, or are anxious for a true expansion to Tyria. I played through the latest episode, Seeds of Truth last night and while it had a bit of an underwhelming finish, it’s plain to see that it’s building toward something big in Guild Wars 2.Posted Dec 3, 2014 by William Murphy

Overwhelmed, Yet Excited for Goblins vs. Gnomes

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft -  Column

Will I be able to adapt once Blizzard launches Goblins vs. Gnomes next week? I’m not sure. I’ve already felt overwhelmed by all the new cards that have been steadily revealed since the expansion was announced at BlizzCon, but I also can’t help but be excited for all the new possibilities.

Update 6 Is Bigger Than We Thought!

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

Update 6 is a big one. Not only is it going to have the Provisioning Revamp, introduction to the collector system, and even the Champion System, but one addition to Update 6 is one that hasn’t received a lot of attention. One I think is a pretty awesome change. In Update 6, as long as everything goes according to plan, we’re going to be seeing some massive combat animation changes. Posted Dec 3, 2014 by Ryan Getchell

First Look at the Sorcerer & the Raptor

Warhammer 40.000: Eternal Crusade -  Column

Greetings fellow Eternal Crusaders, and welcome to this week's Eternal Crusade article. I hope everyone had a safe and pleasant holiday, if you had one, or a fun weekend, if you did not. This week we will be looking at a few different things, the models for the Chaos Sorcerer and for the Chaos Raptor were revealed during episode thirteen of Into the Warp, the Eternal Crusade twitch show. There were also a couple of “surprise reveals” during the show, and, for once, it was NOT Miguel who slipped.Posted Dec 2, 2014 by Terry OBrien

Review In Progress

The Crew -  General

Ubisoft’s The Crew might be a good overall indication of what we can expect from MMOs in the next several years. How you look at that statement could be a good or a bad thing. I spent the better part of last night and this morning delving into the live service of Ivory Tower’s racing MMO. Though I don’t think we’ll need the usual 4-5 weeks to come to a conclusion about The Crew’s performance, because there are only so many different things you can do behind the confines of a car.Posted Dec 2, 2014 by William Murphy

Superheroic Spiritual Successors

General -  Column

In the ashes of City of Heroes the seeds of three spiritual successors were planted. The Phoenix Project now known as City of Titans, Heroes and Villains, and Valiance Online. Two years on and all three are barely little sprouts poking their heads out of the dirt, MMOs do take a long time to develop after all. But it is that time of year where they’re pushed into our thoughts once more. How are they doing you may be asking? That’s a very good question…Posted Dec 2, 2014 by Shannon Doyle
