Fun is the Basic Ingredient

Civilization Online -  Interview

The Civilization series of strategy titles has been a huge worldwide hit over the years. XLGames is ready to bring Civilization Online to the world to continue that success but in a more traditional MMORPG format. We had a chance to interview the team. See what they had to say about the sandbox MMO and its North American release in our exclusive chat.Posted Jan 8, 2015 by William Murphy

The Journey Doesn't End at 100

World of Warcraft -  Column

As with all things World of Warcraft, simply hitting the level cap is not the end of the journey, though many might expect it to be. So what should one do upon reaching level 100? We've got a few ideas in mind that can still bring months of quality time to WoW players.Posted Jan 7, 2015 by Suzie Ford

Three Things We Want from SWTOR in 2015

Star Wars: The Old Republic -  Column

Star Wars: The Old Republic may never live up to the lofty expectations many had for it before it launched back in 2011, but the game seems pretty healthy despite all the initial setbacks. 2015 is a new year and with a new year comes new possibilities. Let’s take a look at some things we’d like to see in SWTOR this year.Posted Jan 7, 2015 by Michael Bitton

Six-Month Sub Disappears & Those F2P Rumors

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

Recently, some players of The Elder Scrolls Online noticed that Zenimax had quietly removed the option to subscribe for six months at a time. Given the game’s somewhat rocky start and time spent since release revamping the game, as well as the upcoming console versions, naturally, the whispers began to swirl. Was the removal of the six-month option an indicator that the game would go free to play or even become a buy to play game?Posted Jan 7, 2015 by Christina Gonzalez

Some Intriguing 2015 Questions

General -  Column

What a difference 12 months can make. Although the MMOG category did see some notable occurrences in 2014, I don't know many people who felt it lived up to the potential it seemed to have at this time a year ago. I wouldn't call it a disaster by any means, but neither did it knock my socks off. Entering 2015, I'm quietly optimistic. That said, I have questions about the what lies ahead, involving Landmark, The Elder Scrolls Online, EverQuest Next and more.Posted Jan 6, 2015 by Richard Aihoshi

Why Are NPCs So Robotic?

General -  Column

When I play an MMO, I love the feeling of walking through a virtual world. Sure, it’s fun to kill great beasts and to find epic adventure, but in the end I mostly look forward to meeting new virtual people that fill those virtual worlds. The problem is that crafting a living, virtual world is hard. Posted Jan 6, 2015 by Beau Hindman

Review in Progress #3 - Frame Shift

Elite: Dangerous -  General

It’s a big galaxy. 400 billion stars big. There’s room enough to make your fortunes, room enough to find your fights and room enough to see things most people won’t pass by if you really work at it. In a galaxy like that, what you make of it is up to you. You… and others. It might be the little action of a few players bringing in the goods or it might be the larger actions of empires.

A New Year

General -  Column

Happy new year, everyone! It’s hard to believe that it’s already 2015 and that World of Warcraft is entering its eleventh year! There’s many things to look forward to this year, the planned content patches for Warlords and the possibility of the next expansion being announced. Posted Jan 5, 2015 by Reza Lackey

Polish or New Content?

Guild Wars 2 -  Column

Smooth animations, fantastic audio quality, and a good UI are essential for making a good game no matter what genre you’re talking about. When it comes to MMO’s it’s hard to find a game that has a true polished feel. A lot of these games try to fill that gap by just reskinning old content, and slapping it on top of everything to make their game seem larger. Then there’s Guild Wars 2. An MMO so polished, it’s actually hard to believe. In fact, it’s still being polished!Posted Jan 5, 2015 by David North

Heartfelt Tribute Shows Community in MMOs is Still Relevant

General -  Column

When people talk about their experiences gaming online, especially in MMORPGs, it can often feel overwhelmingly negative. It’s not uncommon to hear that MMOs are irrelevant, too expensive, cash grabs, superficial, and at worst, have ‘communities’ in name only, full of either apathy or trolling. Take your pick. Yet, while the genre has seen shifts over time, there is still something about MMORPGs that remains unique, and brings out the best in online community.Posted Jan 5, 2015 by Christina Gonzalez

The Best MMOs with Sailing

General -  Column

Now that the bold new year of 2015 is upon us and we’re striking out into unknown territory, I felt like it was only appropriate that we take a look at MMOs that let you embark on grand voyages of your own. When doing research for this list, I noticed that there are shockingly few MMOs with robust sea-based content. As a result, some of the games on this list feature sailing as an extra feature, while some of the games have sea adventures as the primary gameplay mechanic. Posted Jan 5, 2015 by David Jagneaux

My Own 2015 Watch List

General -  Column

Rob recently penned his own “Looking Forward to 2015” article, and Shawn did his own take on what to watch in 2015, but since the year’s only just begun and we’re coming off a pretty underwhelming 2014 for new MMOs, we might as well take yet another peek at what the next year could bring us.

Was Forged Alliances Really Necessary?

Star Wars: The Old Republic -  Column

In their prelude to their current expansion, Shadow of Revan, Star Wars: the Old Republic spent five months giving us new big-picture epic content via four Flashpoints collectively known as Forged Alliances. I spent an afternoon playing all four of them back to back on solo mode now that it's possible to do so and have been left with some questions that remind me of another big-name scifi franchise's first movie: Is this all that there was? Was there nothing more?Posted Jan 2, 2015 by Jean Prior

MMOs As a Grown Up

General -  Column

Full-time jobs, children, spouses… It happens to all of us: the good things swoop in and steal game time right out from under you. It begs the question: are MMOs even for us anymore? We’ve been through the wringer and have your answer, and eight crucial tips to make sure you succeed. Posted Jan 2, 2015 by Christopher Coke

Developing a game project of this size poses many challenges - from thinking over the backend architecture to the in-game economy system and more. Sometimes critical changes happen in the middle of development process. Are they for the better? It depends. Let me give you an example of several challenges we faced in developing "The Skies" world and, ultimately, our decisions.Posted Jan 2, 2015

Looking Ahead to 2015

General -  Column

Hello everyone and welcome to the new year. I’m writing this on the last day of 2014 and instead of looking over our shoulder and summarizing what has gone I’d prefer to look forward and talk about what is yet to come. Posted Jan 1, 2015 by Robert Lashley

Update 15 - A Valiant Effort from a Reduced Studio

Lord of the Rings Online -  General

While Lord of the Rings Online hasn't been around quite as long as other AAA MMOs, it's still been around long enough for the short attention span of the internet to proclaim it 'forever'. Launched in April 2007, the game has taken the Lord of the Rings story all the way to Gondor, with players getting to help Aragorn take on the Corsairs of Umbar. Update 15 also brings Beornings to the table, the first new class added to the game since 2008.Posted Jan 1, 2015 by Jean Prior
