Not Even Fans of One Direction Will Love This

SaySayGirls -  Review

Say Say Girls is a virtual world which targets a demographic overlooked by most game developers, girls between ages 6 and 11. It aims to be a wholesome experience without the obsession over makeup or sexualisation that so often targets girls of that age though it fully understands that its target audience loves clothes and interior decorating at the same time. So take a journey to Paradise Island where all the girls are pretty and the biggest worry in the world is a pair of lost sunglasses.Posted Mar 27, 2014 by Shannon Doyle

Playing an Ent in The Breaking of Isengard

Lord of the Rings Online -  Preview

The 7th anniversary of Lord of the Rings Online is right around the corner and so is the release of Lord of the Rings Online’s 13th Update: The Breaking of Isengard. Previously, players had taken part in Isengard content by being held captive by Saruman and the orcs within. Now? The story has progressed with the books and players will get to explore what happened and how Saruman came to lose power. Yes folks, that means lots and lots of Ents and the Entmoot.Posted Mar 27, 2014 by William Murphy

You Got Diablo in My LEGO!

Lego Minifigures Online -  Preview

The team at Funcom was able to meet with us about their new MMO at GDC. It was not crazed wizards and hardy barbarians, nor was it wild factions hiding magic in today’s society. It was LEGO. LEGO Minifigures Online captures what is so much fun about action RPGs and online worlds in a game that both adults and kids will enjoy. Executive Producer Lawrence Poe was on hand to explain working in the LEGO world. Posted Mar 27, 2014 by William Murphy

General -  Preview

Interestingly, German developer InnoGames was established in 2007 out of a very successful hobby project, Tribal Wars. At GDC this past week, I got a chance to take a look at Tribal Wars 2, their forthcoming sequel to the free-to-play persistent strategy game.Posted Mar 26, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh

My Endgame is Not Your Endgame

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

The term “endgame” has become a contentious one, with people arguing the definition. Part of the issue is when people think that an MMO should have certain things and fit a certain definition. Others choose to focus upon what a game in particular “lacks” rather than what it has to offer. With The Elder Scrolls Online, this has also been the case. Yet ESO’s offerings for higher level players offer some fitting choices.Posted Mar 26, 2014 by Christina Gonzalez

Quick & Flashy with Great Combat

SMITE -  Review

The success of games like League of Legends, DotA 2, and now SMITE is something all gamers should take notice of. SMITE is the newest prodigal child from HiRez Studios and the upcoming launch and current state of SMITE is nothing short of enjoyable. Featuring a wide selection of aesthetically and mechanically different characters, an easy-to-learn style of gameplay, and a growing population of players and competition; SMITE is well on its way to becoming a major player in the MOBA space.Posted Mar 26, 2014 by Tyler Rowe

Hands On with the iOS Edition

World of Tanks -  Preview

This past week at GDC we had the chance to meet with Victor Kislyi from Wargaming.net. There are a lot of updates coming to World of Tanks in the coming months, the best of which is bringing the game to mobile platforms. Wargaming.net really does dominate that tactical warfare MMO like no one else. We have enjoyed years of World of Tanks and now with a graphical upgrade and tablets coming around the corner it was great to hear what the team is working on. Posted Mar 26, 2014 by Garrett Fuller

Rethinking the Pillars of MMO Design

General -  Column

RPG designers often refer to the four pillars when discussing a new game or concept. Their goals often aim to improve or reinvent one or more aspect(s). SWTOR emphasized the story pillar, while Wildstar showed interest in combat. There are MMOs that aim to invent new pillars like Everquest Next, while others focus on improving a variable within a pillar. Could these pillars of game design be stifling innovation or do they merely keep the design process grounded in what works?Posted Mar 26, 2014 by Genese Davis

Free to Play - My Personal Review

General -  Column

To avoid any chance of confusion, today's topic isn't the business model. Rather, it's the documentary of the same name that Valve released last week. Available at no charge on Steam and elsewhere, it takes us back to August of 2011 and the first ever e-sports tournament with a top prize of $1 million. Called The International, it took place during Gamescon in Germany, with 16 invited DOTA 2 teams battling it out for a total of $1.6 million. Posted Mar 25, 2014 by Richard Aihoshi

ARGs Are Back

The Secret World -  Column

For many the first time they ever heard about The Secret World it was thanks to an ARG. Funcom spent years leading up to TSW with a series of ARGs meant to engage, entertain, and sometimes terrify. After the launch sadly ARGs were all but abandoned, with only two since July of 2012. Now the alternate reality games are getting a bit of a boost. Last week, on the 14th a new ARG started, dealing with Division 66.Posted Mar 25, 2014 by Shannon Doyle

Reaper of Souls – Finally the Game D3 Was Meant to Be

Diablo 3 -  Review

Enter Blizzard Entertainment and one of its three powerhouse titles: Diablo III. Since being released in 2012, the game has been successful but seemingly less so than its predecessors. Now with the first expansion, Reaper of Souls, Diablo III is finally the game it should have been all along. Posted Mar 25, 2014 by Suzie Ford

The Demon Within GDC

So if you are looking for a solid RPG that goes into the darkness of a man’s soul, then continue reading.Posted Mar 24, 2014 by Garrett Fuller

GDC 2014 Preview: Cute but Complex

Trove -  Preview

Although ArcheAge was very much my game of show at GDC last week, another of Trion Worlds’ games took a close second: the delightfully cute and complex Trove. It’s silly, it’s visually appealing, and it’s seemingly chock full of collaborative adventure.Posted Mar 24, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh

The Feature Pack is Almost Upon Us!

Guild Wars 2 -  Column

Over the next few weeks, we'll hear about a bunch of gameplay tweaks and quality-of-life improvements in Guild Wars 2, set to be implemented in the April 15 update. My personal favorite-most-wanted-please-can-I-have-this-soon-I'm-begging-you feature, precursor crafting, has been confirmed as not being a part of the pack, so I've outlined three other things I'd like to see implemented – if not in the Feature Pack, then somewhere shortly down the road.Posted Mar 24, 2014 by Jason Winter
