The Strain Has Infected Me

WildStar -  Preview

One of the best parts of the MMO-side of our E3 was getting a sneak preview of WildStar’s upcoming first content patch: The Strain. Led on a walkthrough by Carbine’s own Jeremy Gaffney, we toured the all new zone of Blighthaven, the new five man public dungeon of The Nursery, and got a look at some of the all snazzy looking new Strain-infected gear you’ll be able to nab.

E3 2014 - Seeing What the Buzz is All About

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt -  Preview

Earlier this week I told everyone that one of my favorite things about E3 is discovering the little gems that are hovering just under my radar that I usually get to see on the last day of the convention. For the record this year my favorite such game was Pillars of Eternity. But as much as I love that little game nothing can compete with what I consider my personal game of show, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt.Posted Jun 17, 2014 by Robert Lashley

Lichdom E3 2014 Preview

General -  Preview

Another game we took a look at during E3 was Xaviant's Lichdom, a FPS/RPG hybrid, that immediately struck us as a spiritual successor to the old-school games Heretic and Hexen. Developers have really created, what they refer to as a “titanium cannon” as opposed to the glass-cannon role that most games pigeon-hole mages into. The result is a character that feels extremely potent, wielding both offensive and defensive magics as he wades into the fray.Posted Jun 17, 2014 by Terry OBrien

Can Perfect World Top Age of Wushu?

Swordsman -  Preview

The North American closed beta for Perfect World’s Swordsman begins this week, and while we were in LA we sat down with the PWE team for a walkthrough of character creation, some background on the story, and then a brief hands-on demo.Posted Jun 17, 2014 by William Murphy

The Best of E3 2014 Awards

General -  Awards

It’s that time again, folks - the time of year where E3 has come and gone and we meaninglessly list out our favorite games from the show. Okay, it’s not entirely meaningless. E3 is one of the biggest events in gaming and it’s a great place to get a first look and first hands-on with some of the year’s best and brightest titles. So without further ado, here are MMORPG.com’s Best of E3 2014 Awards.Posted Jun 17, 2014 by William Murphy

E3 Preview: The Dragon Age We’ve Waited For?

Dragon Age: Inquisition -  Preview

If we had an E3 Award for “Best Game for which we waited in line for 40 minutes even though we had VIP access but then were treated to a 30-minute demo that blew all other presentations out of the water,” then Bioware and EA’s Dragon Age: Inquisition would have cleaned house. The newest installment in the iconic Dragon Age series looks every bit the part as herald for a new era of single-player fantasy RPGs, and totally stole the show for me.Posted Jun 17, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh

E3 Interview with Yoshi P. - What's in Store?

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn -  Interview

This year at E3 I took part in a round table interview of Naoki Yoshida (aka Yoshi-P) director and lead producer on Final Fantasy XIV. Also at the table were the fine folks from Gamer Escape. Read on for what Yoshi - P had to say about what he and his team has in store for FFXIV.Posted Jun 16, 2014 by Robert Lashley

First Steps in a Larger World

General -  Column

This week on All Things Warcraft we’re going to do something a little different: with recent access to the Warlords of Draenor alpha I am going to write about what I see and find as it happens. Be warned: minor spoilers ahead! Let’s log in!Posted Jun 16, 2014 by Reza Lackey

The Biconic Women (and Man)

Guild Wars 2 -  Column

They may not be the heroes Tyria wanted, but they're the heroes Tyria deserved. Or maybe they're also the heroes Tyria wanted. I'm always a little confused by that adage...Posted Jun 16, 2014 by Jason Winter

More Going On Here Than Meets the Eye

Destiny -  Preview

You have probably already heard about and formulated an opinion on Destiny already though – Activision is pouring half a billion dollars into its marketing budget after all – and you wouldn’t be alone. Based on the footage and information available to me, it seemed like Destiny would be little more than a glorified Borderlands with a slap of Halo paint. While my initial assessment isn’t erroneously far from the truth, there is a lot more going on here than meets the eye.Posted Jun 16, 2014 by David Jagneaux

Hands On At E3 2014

Skyforge -  Preview

This time around, the Allods Team studio has enlisted the help of veteran RPG developer Obsidian Entertainment to bring Skyforge to Western Audiences. This week at E3, we were able to go hands-on with the alpha build of the new MMORPG, and get a feel for the combat and Ascension Atlas: the progression tree for Skyforge’s characters.Posted Jun 16, 2014 by William Murphy

The RPGs of E3

General -  Column

June is a special time of year for gamers. This is the month of E3, an expo which is more and more being called the super bowl of gaming. It’s an apt description and this year’s conference was no let down. We have a week of coverage in store for you but until then, this is your first look at the RPGs of E3.

HUNT: Horrors of the Gilded Age - E3 Preview

General -  Preview

One of my favorite parts of E3 is wandering around to appointments on the last day of the show to get an early look at games that I may not have heard about before arriving at the convention. This year was no different. During the first two days at E3 I had seen a number of interesting banners for Hunt hanging from the ceiling in different halls of the LA convention center. While I had no previous knowledge of the game the banners did serve their purpose and piqued my interest. Posted Jun 15, 2014 by Robert Lashley

In Issue 443 of the MMORPG.com Newsletter, we look at Shards Online and all the rest of the news from the past week in MMOs.Posted Jun 15, 2014 by Michael Bitton

BattleCry E3 2014 Preview

General -  Preview

At E3 2014 one of the games that really caught our eye was BattleCry. We were excited to see the announcement for the game a few weeks ago. The bloody violent trailer was great to watch. However we were not sure about the persistence of this online world. Happily we learned quickly from MMO veteran Rich Vogel that the game has a persistent War Front, progression, and even some crafting. Needless to say, we are listing the game on MMORPG.com.Posted Jun 14, 2014 by Garrett Fuller

The War Against Down Time

General -  Column

Last week I wrote about the loss of class interaction and dependency as one reason for weakened socialization in modern MMOs. This week I want to discuss another big factor in the decline of social MMOs, the war against downtime.Posted Jun 13, 2014 by Mark Kern

E3 Preview – Build Your Orc Army

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor -  Preview

What a way to cap my E3 2014. We had a resounding 30 appointments or so over three days this week in LA, and among those many games there’s hardly a one that didn’t have something at least a little redeeming about what was on show. However, few games really grabbed our attention. Those which did, we’ll be announcing in our E3 Awards in the coming days. One of those games that did knock our socks off, though it’s still being debated on whether or not it will win an award, was Shadow of Mordor. Posted Jun 13, 2014 by William Murphy

Gambling and Group Finder: Game Update 2.8

Star Wars: The Old Republic -  Column

As was promised a couple of months ago, Star Wars: the Old Republic's Game Update 2.8 launched on June 10th. It wasn't without difficulty, as a number of players experienced severe troubles logging in, getting stuck in a Flashpoint, transitioning to other areas, using the group finder, or logging in and seeing an empty server list. The worst of the issues were resolved within twenty-four hours, but maintenance is posted for Friday to hopefully alleviate the rest. Posted Jun 13, 2014 by Jean Prior

The Hypothetical E3 Wishlist

EverQuest Next -  Column

With little information on Everquest Next available at present and the fact that SOE’s Everquest Next/Landmark team is at E3 itself, there is a small chance we may see some Everquest Next-related news or updates tacked onto Landmark showpieces on E3. To wit, I’d like to list down three things I would like to see or hear from SOE upon the MMORPG.com team’s return from E3.Posted Jun 13, 2014 by Victor Barreiro Jr.

Up Close & Personal with the Game

Albion Online -  Preview

In June I had the pleasure of visiting the Sandbox Interactive games studio for an up-close and personal introduction to the forthcoming Albion Online, a sandbox MMO, due out in the last quarter of this year. Posted Jun 13, 2014 by Alexander Brown
