It's a Revolution in MMOs - The Freedom to Create

Shards Online -  Interview

Shards Online is a game that in its understated way is going to change the way MMOs are developed by bringing the community to bear in a way that has never been done before. Citadel Studios is committed to creating something different and unique that places the powers of creation into the hands of the people who love MMOs so they can provide experiences to players who are oftentimes disappointed by the genre these days.Posted Aug 3, 2015 by Suzie Ford

NCSoft Quarter 2 Analysis - Lineage Still Going Strong

General -  Column

The second quarter revenue reports for NCSoft have come in a few weeks early, and the results are pretty much positive across the board. I know this is the part where I'd normally add "unless you play Wildstar," but I'm not going to do that this month. Given the figures presented in this quarter's report, I'm going to guess there aren't a whole lot of people left that such a message would actually apply to. So instead, I'll say that it's positive across the board unless you work on Wildstar.Posted Aug 3, 2015 by Connor Wack

You probably read articles on our website because you like MMOs. As a matter of fact, I’d be willing to bet that you play them regularly.

The Wait for Catch-Up Content

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn -  Column

If you’ve finished the current story and are tired of the dungeon grind, waiting seems long. Luckily Victor’s got your back with a short wish list of things to come for future content.Posted Aug 2, 2015 by Victor Barreiro Jr.

Sorcerer King - A RPG Fan’s Ideal 4X Game

General -  Preview

4X Games are one of the most enduring strategy genres out there. Games like Civilization and Sins of a Solar Empire have fans that are legion. Heck, I doubt I’m the only person on MMORPG.com who appreciates this sort of strategy. But one thing I’ve always wanted is for a little more RPG to make its way into the 4X (Explore, Expand, Exploit, Exterminate) pantheon. Stardock tried this to some success with Fallen Enchantress, and now ups the ante quite a bit with the excellent Sorcerer King.Posted Aug 1, 2015 by William Murphy

PlayStation 4 - Worlds in Conflict

PlanetSide 2 -  Review

It is in those moments, where everything about Planetside 2 is moving in perfect concert, that the battles you fight can astound you with their immensity. You'll run through valley floors as columns of tanks exchange fire and aircraft engage in dogfights and strafe your position, reviving downed players as a combat medic. You'll jetpack your way onto a facility roof alongside your squad, ambushing several pesky infiltrators with sniper rifles picking off your main force. Posted Jul 31, 2015 by Steven Messner

Chasing Shadows

Lost Dimension -  Review

Some games rely on their stories and character development to grab your attention, using plot devices and memorable personalities to keep you coming back for more. Others depend upon their gameplay systems to keep you engaged, either through their unique implementation or by sheer force of addictiveness.Posted Jul 31, 2015 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Strongholds - A Large Update Focused on Guilds

Neverwinter -  Interview

On Wednesday afternoon I had a conference call with Rob Overmeyer, Executive Producer for Neverwinter, and Alex Monney, Communications Manager with Perfect World. During that time Rob took me on a guided preview of what players can expect when Neverwinter launches their newest module, Strongholds, later this summer.Posted Jul 31, 2015 by Robert Lashley

General -  Column

Everyone has a childhood favorite. For Chris, it was JRPGs. Now, whether it’s Final Fantasy, Ni No Kuni, Persona 4 Golden, or Bravely Default, he can’t rekindle the magic. Why is that? This week, we exploring falling out of love with your favorite genre. Posted Jul 31, 2015 by Christopher Coke

BATTLETECH: New Kickstarter from Harebrained Schemes

General -  Interview

Battletech is getting ready for a reboot with a Kickstarter initiative planned for later this year. We had the opportunity to interview the staff about the forthcoming project. See what they had to say.Posted Jul 30, 2015 by Robert Lashley

How EpicData is Making the Games You Love Better

General -  Interview

A lot goes into the making of MMOs. It is not just about game design, there is a huge infrastructure that goes along with it. Forums, web design, cash shops, interface, and customer experience all make up the parts of an MMO that you may not think about while playing a game. Well, the good news is Raechele Greenwald and her team at EpicData has started thinking of it for you.Posted Jul 30, 2015 by Garrett Fuller

Concerns and Misconceptions

Crowfall -  Column

I've written both praise and skepticism about Crowfall in this column over the last few months, as I think it's only fair to see both sides of any ambitious new game project. Personally, I enjoy the portfolios of both J. Todd Coleman and Gordon Walton, so that combination, including the premise of Crowfall itself, is music to my ears. But different people may be excited (or not) about Crowfall for different reasons.Posted Jul 30, 2015 by Shawn Schuster

Economy - It’s All About the Players!

Gloria Victis -  Developer Journal

Production was an integral part of medieval society and was inseparable from the day to day lives of those that lived in that period. It was a time of self-sufficiency where everyone had a rudimentary understanding of every craft. However there were also those that truly excelled in a specific craft and made it their profession – the fame of these masters would spread far beyond the borders of their nation and men from foreign lands would come to them looking for their products.Posted Jul 30, 2015

What We'd Like to See (and Not See) in the Next Expansion

World of Warcraft -  Column

Many WoW players are pinning their hopes on the Eye of Azshara, a name that Blizzard trademarked late last year (and the subject of our WoW column earlier this week). Rather than focus on what we’d like to see lore-wise, let’s take a few minutes to look at the things we’d like to see (and NOT see) from a feature standpoint in this next as-yet-unnamed expansion.Posted Jul 30, 2015 by Suzie Ford

First Impressions - A Capable Fleet

World of Warships -  General

The seas are silent as my gunboat, the Hashidate, glides across the smooth deep blue waves. To my starboard side I see the USS South Carolina towering above the rest of our fleet. The mere presence of the battleship strengthens my resolve. I cut around an island, skirting the perimeter of our capture objective only to find I am now in range of enemy artillery.Posted Jul 30, 2015 by Chris Swain

Pitchforks & Betas

Camelot Unchained -  Column

There is no sense in avoiding the demon in the dungeon. Due to a lack of staff CU Beta was delayed until further notice. It’s obviously a disappointment for many backers but it's also a symbol of how much the genre has changed. Back in my day Beta wasn’t “delayed”. Beta usually had 4 stages and concluded with “open beta tests” and most scrubs like me didn’t get in until phase 4, or worst case scenario, open beta. Posted Jul 29, 2015 by Timothy Eisenzimmer

Here's What's Awesome About Hearthstone's Grand Tournament

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft -  Column

Following Blizzard’s all but confirmed expansion-adventure mode-expansion cadence, The Grand Tournament is the second pack-based expansion set for Hearthstone, which means players can look forward to a lot of new cards (132, to be exact!) when the expansion releases later next month.Posted Jul 29, 2015 by Michael Bitton

What Class in Skyforge Should You Play?

Skyforge -  General

With Skyforge being the hot new game on the block right now, it makes sense that so many of us are playing Allods and Obsidian's latest. But there are an awful lot of classes in the game, and some take a lot of work to unlock. So why not let us help you decide which class to work towards with this week's quiz?Posted Jul 29, 2015 by William Murphy

Storyline vs Content

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

Now that we have a release date for Imperial City and according to Matt Firor, Wrothgar isn’t far off either (early 2016), I want to pose a question to the community. This question is one that I’m still debating over and can’t come to an actual decision on where I stand, or where I should stand. Posted Jul 29, 2015 by Ryan Getchell
