Hands on with the Revenant's Ventari Legend

Guild Wars 2 -  Preview

I never thought I would be saying this, but last night I totally brought the heals in Guild Wars 2! That’s right, you’re eyes aren’t tricking you... thanks to the power of Ventari, healing is now more of a thing in Guild Wars 2. We got some hands on time with the new Legend for the Revenant profession in Heart of Thorns.Posted Jul 12, 2015 by David North

At E3 last month, we got to catch up with Wargaming.net about three of their games. The developer’s flagship title, World of Tanks, will be releasing on Xbox One on July 28, and there’s also good news for fans of World of Warships and Master of Orion.Posted Jul 11, 2015 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Five Reasons Why You Should Be Playing Trove

Trove -  Column

On a whim, I downloaded and started playing Trove a few days ago, oblivious to its launch this week. I had previewed it a little during the alpha and kept one eye on it while playing other things, but hadn’t paid close attention to any of the game’s updates through beta and leading up to release.Posted Jul 10, 2015 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Batman: Arkham Knight is Closer to an RPG Than You Think

General -  Column

Batman: Arkham Knight isn’t an RPG but it’s closer than you might think. This week, Chris looks at each of those ways and how the latest entry in the Batman series succeeds where so many RPGs fail. That and the week’s news, including a Witcher 3 inventory improvement, Dragon Age: Inquisition abandoning older consoles, No Man’s Sky gameplay, Darkest Dungeon updates, and more!Posted Jul 10, 2015 by Christopher Coke

The Review Continues with Fresh Eyes

Pathfinder Online -  General

You may be wondering where my (Bill Murphy’s) review is for Pathfinder Online. As I mentioned a while ago in a comment, I just can’t bring myself to play the game anymore, and I don’t feel I’ve given it enough time to really put a score on it. So, like a boss, I’m torturing our own Steven Messner with the task of going in with fresh eyes to see how he feels about the game. Read on for his own first impressions and more of my reasoning behind switching writers.Posted Jul 10, 2015 by Steven Messner

Skyforge -  Other

Skyforge is now in early access for its Open Beta, meaning throngs of people who paid for founders packs are now playing what’s essentially the launch version of Allods Team’s and Obsidian’s Free to Play MMORPG. And if there’s one thing Skyforge does different from its predecessors, it’s the class system and its accompanying Ascension Atlas. Today, we’ll explain how and when you’ll unlock Skyforge’s many available classes.Posted Jul 10, 2015 by William Murphy

Exploring the Combat System

Gloria Victis -  Developer Journal

As an MMORPG set in a medieval world, Gloria Victis must inevitably focus on combat. The main idea was to base it on player skill instead of the character’s statistics or equipment, contrary to the classic MMOs. To achieve this goal we decided to use a Non-Target system, so the player has to manually aim their attacks at the opponent at the right time, from a proper distance and direction, adjusting the strength of a strike as well.Posted Jul 9, 2015

Who Wants to Build a Crappy Character?

Crowfall -  Column

I'm a bit torn on the concept of a "ruinable" character in Crowfall. The folks at ArtCraft Entertainment have said a few times now that it is possible to build a character that is just outright broken from the start, but I'm not sure if everyone is quite ready for that yet.Posted Jul 9, 2015 by Shawn Schuster

Heavensward Review in Progress Part 3

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn -  General

Over the last two weeks we have touched on the build up to Heavensward and some of the new systems in the game. This week I want to talk about the reason we have headed north to begin with, the remaining two classes; Machinist and Astrologian, as well as the Mac brewhaha. Next week I’ll do the official review and put a bow on it.Posted Jul 9, 2015 by Robert Lashley

The Quiz - Which World of Warcraft Villain Are You?

World of Warcraft -  Editorial

Games are serious business, we get it. But that doesn't mean they can't be a bit of stupid fun. With that in mind, we're starting something new today: The Quiz. A while back we tried these, but we didn't have the tech to do them right. Yes it's pointless, yes it's silly, but have a little laugh. Find out which World of Warcraft Villain you are!Posted Jul 9, 2015 by William Murphy

The Butcher & Battlefield of Eternity Impressions

Heroes of the Storm -  Column

Blizzard recently deployed the “Eternal Conflict” update for Heroes of the Storm, which adds both the aforementioned hero and map to the game. I’ve spent some time playing the update over the last couple of days, so let’s take a dive in and see how it has panned out so far.Posted Jul 8, 2015 by Michael Bitton

Waiting for WoW’s Next Expansion

General -  Column

How long is too long to wait for an expansion? That’s the question many WoW players are asking themselves after learning that content patch 6.2 will likely be the final one for Warlords of Draenor. This week we look at the hopeful but skeptical response from the blogosphere.Posted Jul 8, 2015 by Jessica Cook

Talking a New Golden Age of RPGs with Brian Fargo

General -  Interview

The RPG genre has never been so filled with amazing content. This year some major titles are hitting the scene with successful games like The Witcher and Fallout 4 on the menu, anyone can see that a new golden age of RPGs is here. InXile Entertainment is right in the driver’s seat for the Indie scene with games like Wasteland 2, Torment: Tides of Numenera, and a new take on The Bard’s Tale.Posted Jul 8, 2015 by Garrett Fuller

Enough With the Veteran Rank Ping Pong

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

Players of The Elder Scrolls Online who have been around for a while know that the game underwent many large changes over the past year. I have praised Zenimax for the dedication to making improvements and listening to the community on certain points during that time. Yet, now that we’re getting our first hints at future content to come, with promises that mid-July will begin reveals about The Imperial City and more, Veteran Ranks are beginning to feel like a bit of a drag on the system.Posted Jul 8, 2015 by Christina Gonzalez

Albeit video games don’t have a huge presence, there are still some really cool gaming specific panels I’ll be covering and speaking on this year. Posted Jul 8, 2015 by Genese Davis

E3 2015 - Hands On and Preview of Bedlam

General -  Preview

Once in a good long while, a game shows up with such a crazy amalgam of genres that your interest might be piqued before hearing anything else about it. Bedlam, a new Roguelike tactical-strategy RPG from Skyshine Games, is one of those such titles. It’s a post-apocalyptic, cyberpunk game with influences from Mad Max, Fallout, Domination Alley, and basically all of the 1980s. Thematically, it looks a lot like Gamma World, and its gameplay is comprised of a mix between Oregon Trail and chess.Posted Jul 7, 2015 by Som Pourfarzaneh

General -  Preview

At June’s E3 event in Los Angeles we got to speak with some of the good folk over at Stoic, and also some hands-on time with Banner Saga 2, and let me tell you, as a huge fan of Banner Sage, this game looks to be an amazing extension of its well-received progenitor.Posted Jul 7, 2015 by Terry OBrien

Could The Chronicles of the Spellborn Return?

General -  Column

I was a huge fan of The Chronicles of Spellborn, an ill-fated (and ahead-of-its-time) MMORPG that semi-tragically disappeared a few years ago. I enjoyed its unique setting, art style and combat mechanics, but I also knew that it was never to be smooth sailing for the game. After all, it featured not only a grind and a challenge but could be hard to run on anything less than gaming machines (at the time) and characters had to hoof it from place to place.
