This week we’re discussing how to give a voice to the character you play in Moonrise.Posted Jan 9, 2015 by Andy Collins

Our Fate of Arun Review

TERA -  Editorial

On December 16th, En Masse released the first full TERA expansion, new level cap and all, into the wild. It may not make new fans of people who have already dismissed the F2P themepark, but for those who’ve always enjoyed Arborea’s mix of action, questing, and dungeoneering there’s a lot to love in the free expansion Fate of Arun.Posted Jan 9, 2015 by William Murphy

Battleline: Steel Warfare Looks Pretty Intriguing

General -  Interview

Before Christmas, I met with Bandai Namco to see and talk about its new upcoming tank battler, Battleline: Steel Warfare. Expecting the standard half hour demo, I was pleasantly surprised to be treated to an enthusiastic 90 minute discussion of why Battleline is so much fun, and why its potential addictiveness should make World of Tanks worry.

Cage Match: Skyrim vs. Elder Scrolls Online

General -  Column

Once upon a 2002, there was a little single-player RPG called The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, which sucked up so much of my gaming time you’d think it could have moonlighted as an MMO. Fast forward to 2006 and then 2011, and you’ve got the fourth and fifth installments of The Elder Scrolls series in Oblivion and Skyrim, both vying for my attention almost as strongly as their predecessor.Posted Jan 9, 2015 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Early Access First Look

Pathfinder Online -  Column

In last week’s column I discussed the games that I look forward to the most in 2015. I caught some heat from readers over the lack of MMORPGs on the list. At the beginning of 2014 if I had to project what I would look forward to the most in 2015 Shroud of the Avatar and Pathfinder Online would have both been on that list. So what changed? This week I’m checking in on the development of Pathfinder Online and I’ll talk about why it missed my list of most anticipated for 2015.Posted Jan 8, 2015 by Robert Lashley

Warhammer Quest Review – How Not to Port a Mobile Game

General -  General

Warhammer Quest is the perfect example of what’s wrong with the gaming industry in 2015. Rather than creating new experiences that people want to play, developers and publishers are shoving these types of quick, cash-grab games out by the truckload. Let me give you a bit of a history lesson on Warhammer Quest and why you should stay far away. Posted Jan 8, 2015 by David Jagneaux

Fun is the Basic Ingredient

Civilization Online -  Interview

The Civilization series of strategy titles has been a huge worldwide hit over the years. XLGames is ready to bring Civilization Online to the world to continue that success but in a more traditional MMORPG format. We had a chance to interview the team. See what they had to say about the sandbox MMO and its North American release in our exclusive chat.Posted Jan 8, 2015 by William Murphy

The Journey Doesn't End at 100

World of Warcraft -  Column

As with all things World of Warcraft, simply hitting the level cap is not the end of the journey, though many might expect it to be. So what should one do upon reaching level 100? We've got a few ideas in mind that can still bring months of quality time to WoW players.Posted Jan 7, 2015 by Suzie Ford

Three Things We Want from SWTOR in 2015

Star Wars: The Old Republic -  Column

Star Wars: The Old Republic may never live up to the lofty expectations many had for it before it launched back in 2011, but the game seems pretty healthy despite all the initial setbacks. 2015 is a new year and with a new year comes new possibilities. Let’s take a look at some things we’d like to see in SWTOR this year.Posted Jan 7, 2015 by Michael Bitton

Six-Month Sub Disappears & Those F2P Rumors

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

Recently, some players of The Elder Scrolls Online noticed that Zenimax had quietly removed the option to subscribe for six months at a time. Given the game’s somewhat rocky start and time spent since release revamping the game, as well as the upcoming console versions, naturally, the whispers began to swirl. Was the removal of the six-month option an indicator that the game would go free to play or even become a buy to play game?Posted Jan 7, 2015 by Christina Gonzalez

Some Intriguing 2015 Questions

General -  Column

What a difference 12 months can make. Although the MMOG category did see some notable occurrences in 2014, I don't know many people who felt it lived up to the potential it seemed to have at this time a year ago. I wouldn't call it a disaster by any means, but neither did it knock my socks off. Entering 2015, I'm quietly optimistic. That said, I have questions about the what lies ahead, involving Landmark, The Elder Scrolls Online, EverQuest Next and more.Posted Jan 6, 2015 by Richard Aihoshi

Why Are NPCs So Robotic?

General -  Column

When I play an MMO, I love the feeling of walking through a virtual world. Sure, it’s fun to kill great beasts and to find epic adventure, but in the end I mostly look forward to meeting new virtual people that fill those virtual worlds. The problem is that crafting a living, virtual world is hard. Posted Jan 6, 2015 by Beau Hindman

Review in Progress #3 - Frame Shift

Elite: Dangerous -  General

It’s a big galaxy. 400 billion stars big. There’s room enough to make your fortunes, room enough to find your fights and room enough to see things most people won’t pass by if you really work at it. In a galaxy like that, what you make of it is up to you. You… and others. It might be the little action of a few players bringing in the goods or it might be the larger actions of empires.

A New Year

General -  Column

Happy new year, everyone! It’s hard to believe that it’s already 2015 and that World of Warcraft is entering its eleventh year! There’s many things to look forward to this year, the planned content patches for Warlords and the possibility of the next expansion being announced. Posted Jan 5, 2015 by Reza Lackey

Polish or New Content?

Guild Wars 2 -  Column

Smooth animations, fantastic audio quality, and a good UI are essential for making a good game no matter what genre you’re talking about. When it comes to MMO’s it’s hard to find a game that has a true polished feel. A lot of these games try to fill that gap by just reskinning old content, and slapping it on top of everything to make their game seem larger. Then there’s Guild Wars 2. An MMO so polished, it’s actually hard to believe. In fact, it’s still being polished!Posted Jan 5, 2015 by David North

Heartfelt Tribute Shows Community in MMOs is Still Relevant

General -  Column

When people talk about their experiences gaming online, especially in MMORPGs, it can often feel overwhelmingly negative. It’s not uncommon to hear that MMOs are irrelevant, too expensive, cash grabs, superficial, and at worst, have ‘communities’ in name only, full of either apathy or trolling. Take your pick. Yet, while the genre has seen shifts over time, there is still something about MMORPGs that remains unique, and brings out the best in online community.Posted Jan 5, 2015 by Christina Gonzalez

The Best MMOs with Sailing

General -  Column

Now that the bold new year of 2015 is upon us and we’re striking out into unknown territory, I felt like it was only appropriate that we take a look at MMOs that let you embark on grand voyages of your own. When doing research for this list, I noticed that there are shockingly few MMOs with robust sea-based content. As a result, some of the games on this list feature sailing as an extra feature, while some of the games have sea adventures as the primary gameplay mechanic. Posted Jan 5, 2015 by David Jagneaux
