Marvel Heroes Advance Pack 3: Awesome or Meh?

Marvel Heroes 2016 -  Column

For me, 2016 is going to be a bittersweet year for new characters in Marvel Heroes. Truth be told, I’m a huge fan of most of the picks, but like anyone else, I’m a bit disappointed some of my most anticipated characters didn’t make the cut. There is hope, as the seventh character hasn’t been revealed (or decided on?) yet, but I’m curbing my expectations.Posted Jan 13, 2016 by Michael Bitton

Eyeing the New Witch's Hoard Pack

Wizard101 -  Column

Now available in the Crown Shop for 399 crowns, the Witch's Hoard Pack brings Polaris themed items for your wizard to enjoy. New goodies in this pack include a new mount, pet, housing items, and gear! Posted Jan 13, 2016 by Vanessa Mythdust

Hardcore RvR

Camelot Unchained -  Column

Most people consider “hardcore” PVP to be free for all, full loot PVP and to the purists anything less is “carebear”. “Realm vs Realm”, as coined in Dark Age of Camelot, is considered to be PVP’s friendly cousin. It's PVP with a focus on realm/faction wide co-operation. The very fabric of RVR goes against the very nature of hardcore PVP but words and their meanings are not stagnant. Is RVR in Camelot Unchained more hardcore than hardcore PVP?Posted Jan 13, 2016 by Timothy Eisenzimmer

Minimally Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Games

General -  Column

The sky is falling. The AAA MMORPG scene is in decay. We should all just take our sports balls and go home. Or maybe not. Rob thinks out loud on how some multiplayer features in single player console RPGs are offering features that could go a long way in a new crop of MMOs.Posted Jan 12, 2016 by Robert Lashley

Chronicles of New Eden - How Spying Has Changed

EVE Online -  Column

Few things in EVE have garnered as much attention from the outside world as the art of spying and counterintelligence. That shouldn't be all that surprising considering it is an aspect of play that is almost wholly unique to EVE Online; few other games will ever reach the depth and scale to make spying not only profitable, but downright necessary in order to succeed.Posted Jan 12, 2016 by Steven Messner

Necromancy - Dr. Frankenstein, Eat Your Heart out!

Crowfall -  Column

Dr. Frankenstein is the title character from Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel who, after studying the decay of living beings, assembled a humanoid creature comprised of a various collection of human remains. Talk about a gruesome crafting profession! Leave it to the folks at ArtCraft to say, “I think we’ll include that.” Yep, it’s in Crowfall and it’s a crafting profession called Necromancy.Posted Jan 12, 2016 by Mike Joseph

What is Contribution – A Beginner’s Guide to Trade, Housing, and Production

Black Desert Online -  Other

Black Desert Online is a unique MMO in many ways. Pearl Abyss’ design team has taken a lot of the traditional MMORPG elements and seemingly turned them on their head to make a game of non-confirmative systems that feels like an experiment in a lot of ways. One such system is known as Contribution, and today we’ll take a look at the CP system, what it is, how it works, and why it’s key to your progression and enjoyment of the game.Posted Jan 12, 2016 by William Murphy

You may have read that Playstation 4 and PC players will soon play together on the same mega server, or you may have read that DCUO is coming to Xbox One in the Spring.

Read on for the studio’s full suite of plans, including new powers, new stories, and new ways to progress your characters…Posted Jan 11, 2016 by William Murphy

You Can Never Go Back to WoW Again

General -  Column

It’s the time of the year traditionally that people don’t care about anything. Everything interesting has happened, and there hasn’t been long enough for people to get their act together and stop going to the gym.Posted Jan 11, 2016 by Paul Nadin

The sheer amount of RPGs coming out in 2016, is staggering. Unlike with our MMOs of 2016 list, we won’t strive to list them all. Instead, we’re curating our Top 25 most anticipated RPGs of 2016. Here’s hoping they all launch this year!Posted Jan 11, 2016 by Suzie Ford

A 2016 Wish List

Guild Wars 2 -  Column

Last month's Wintersday Wish List was my attempt at singling out a few of the easier-to-address issues with Guild Wars 2. Today, I'm rolling up my sleeves and getting a little more muck on my arms, looking forward to 2016 and the kinds of tasks that might take a wee bit longer, if not a good portion of the year. We'll know more about ArenaNet's plans on Tuesday, but in advance of that, here are a few things I'd like to see on the long-term checklist.Posted Jan 11, 2016 by Jason Winter

World Championship Finals Wrap Report

SMITE -  General

Well, this is what it all boils down to, the best team from North America, Enemy; and the best team from the European Union, Epsilon. I have to be honest, I think the best team in North America is Cloud 9, and I think the REAL final was yesterday, when Epsilon squeaked out a three games to two victory over Cloud 9, but the games have to be played, so let’s see how it turned out.Posted Jan 11, 2016 by Terry OBrien

World Championship- Day Three Recap

SMITE -  General

Two very interesting match-ups in today’s Semi-finals, both pitting a North American team against an European Union team.Posted Jan 10, 2016 by Terry OBrien

The World is Changing

Gloria Victis -  Developer Journal

Everything is changing (except for war – war never changes), and the world of Gloria Victis is evolving as well, filling up with breathtaking locations, more credible reactions of its inhabitants to the actions performed by the players, and new ways of building up the immersion.Posted Jan 9, 2016

World Championship - Day Two Recap and Results

SMITE -  General

The final match of the day will pit two EU teams against each other, Epsilon, who went 27-1 during the SPL Fall Split, and Fnatic, who are the longest tenured team in the Smite Pro Leagues. These two teams are long-time scrim partners, and know each other exceedingly well. Having said that, I am sure they both have saved some pocket strats for just such an occasion as this, and we will see those tricks of the trade shortly.Posted Jan 9, 2016 by Terry OBrien

Oculus Rift is Overpriced and In Trouble

General -  Column

Oculus made a splash by opening up pre-orders this week and unveiling their retail price at $599, substantially more than Palmer Luckey’s September “in the ballpark” of $350 quote. While many gamers are gleeful that virtual reality will soon be arriving in their very own living rooms, our RPG columnist is concerned. Is $600 just too much?Posted Jan 8, 2016 by Christopher Coke

Women in Gaming - Artcraft's Valerie Massey

Crowfall -  Interview

MMO Predictions for 2016

General -  Column

The MMO genre can sometimes feel like a whimsical sea of shifting sands, but it’s not without its axioms. Open betas will almost always mean soft launches, game development benchmarks will take longer than expected, and Vanguard: Saga of Heroes will always be one of the best-conceived and poorly-executed MMORPGs ever made. Yet, sometimes the sands shift enough to reveal patterns for those who are good enough at predictions to get a glimpse of what awaits for MMOs, RPGS, and other games.
