PvP - Gear, ELO, & The Thrill of Competition

WildStar

WildStar’s PvP is just like the rest of the game - it’s fast, it’s furious, and it’s on a grand scale. For those looking forward to the action combat, the use of constant movement, and the telegraph system to add strategy, there are many ways to satisfy your urge to take down some dirty Dominion or Exile scum, depending upon your own loyalties.

SWTOR Atlanta Cantina Tour News

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Last week, BioWare sent Star Wars: the Old Republic's Community Specialist Courtney Woods, Community Manager Eric Musco, Producer Andrew Horowitz, and Lead Engineer Johan Allanson to Atlanta with swag and drink tickets in hand for the latest Cantina Tour stop. The now-traditional flashdrive that was handed out contained a series of images from upcoming content, and as expected, there was a Q&A session with Courtney Woods moderating the party.

Day of Reckoning: The Battle for Lion's Arch

Guild Wars 2

They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, and never has the adage been more frighteningly proven than through the evolution of enigmatic Guild Wars 2 villain, Scarlet Briar. Like many a mad scientist before her, Scarlet's sought facility without judgment, mastery without wisdom, and hasn't spent much time at all considering the consequences of this search. Not surprisingly—and like so many mad scientists before her—her efforts have ended in cataclysmic results.Posted Mar 4, 2014 by Neilie Johnson

Sacrifice of the Vaal Expansion Preview

Path of Exile

Last fall, I met with the guys from Grinding Gears games shortly before they launched their hit online action RPG, Path of Exile. Four months and five million registered players later, the team stands on the cusp of releasing their first major content update, Sacrifice of the Vaal. I met with Grinding Gears Managing Director Chris Wilson and Path of Exile Technical Director Jonathan Rogers once again this week, and the two filled me in on what we can expect from this first sizable content dump.

Charming Beginnings

EverEmber Online

Out of all the game genres out there, MMOs are probably the least represented in terms of independent game development. Truly, it makes sense. MMOs typically require massive amounts of resources, 24/7 attention, and a deeply dedicated core team of developers. However, sometimes a handful of people are able to find workarounds for issues and create something that they can be proud of for a small, yet active, community – such is the case with EverEmber Online.Posted Feb 27, 2014 by David Jagneaux

Legend of Kel Voreth

WildStar

Nestled in the bottom corner of Auroria lies the Ruins of Kel Voreth, one of WildStar’s earliest dungeons. Besides being a place for the slaughter, this Osun stronghold contains a hefty amount of hidden lore. As part of his ongoing adventure through Nexus, Gareth Harmer reveals more about this barbaric race and their ties to the mysterious Eldan. Posted Feb 22, 2014 by Gareth Harmer

Stormtalon's Lair: The Birth of a Corrupted God

WildStar

At the end of the valley we discover a pier like wooden structure which clearly extends deep into a cave. A swirling blue mist covers the cave entrance and if you continue, you are given the standard Dungeon Difficulty options: Normal, Veteran and Rally the Instance Level popup. You have discovered a Dungeon entrance and need to decide how you will enter. Posted Feb 21, 2014 by Franklin Rinaldi

A Peek Inside a Wonderful Wicked World

Dark Souls II

Earlier this week we were given the opportunity to play Dark Souls 2, From Software’s upcoming sequel to the critically acclaimed Dark Souls. For those unfamiliar with Dark Souls it is a fantasy 3rd person RPG with a punishing learning curve based on trial and error. In today’s 3 hour preview session of Dark Souls 2 I died more than 50 times, several of which were in the tutorial zone. Posted Feb 21, 2014 by Ricky Marino

The Spring of SWTOR - Game Update 2.7

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Over the course of the past week, BioWare laid out their roadmap for the changes coming with Star Wars: the Old Republic's Game Update 2.7. You can see how we're trundling along to SWTOR's 3.0. The use of sub-numbers (2.7.4, etc.) can ensure they can stretch out the revelation of SWTOR 3.0: the Undiscovered Expansion until sometime next year. However, I don't believe we're going to see that per Bruce Maclean's Producer's Roadmap. Posted Feb 20, 2014 by Jean Prior

A Deep Look at ESO's Racial Skills

Elder Scrolls Online

It can be traced back to the very early editions of pen and paper Dungeons and Dragons (1974) and even Chainmail from (1971), possibly even further. Even back then, Special Racial Abilities were an important part to creating an immersive and unique game. We’re going to discuss character racial abilities and find which role each character will be best suited for in The Elder Scrolls Online.Posted Feb 19, 2014 by Ryan Getchell

Beyond the Walls of the Thayd

WildStar

Winter Beta Patch Three has come to WildStar and with it, many significant changes to the game for Beta players. The ability to level to 50 now has to be at the top of the list for most. Let’s take our first look beyond the City of Thayd and see what is in store for us as we continue our adventures on Nexus. Posted Feb 19, 2014 by Franklin Rinaldi

Deeper into the Dominion Lands

WildStar

Carbine has lifted the level limit to level 29, allowing us to explore deeper into Nexus and report back on what we find. Over the coming days and weeks, I’ll be entering the Ruins of Kel Voreth dungeon and creeping around the contested zone of Whitevale. Today though, I’m starting out in Auroria: the first post-15 zone.Posted Feb 19, 2014 by Gareth Harmer

Is the Sand Leaving the Box?

ArcheAge

XL Games has been calling their MMORPG title ArcheAge a sandpark for quite a while now, a mixture of a themepark and a sandbox game. One would assume it's certainly a sandpark game. You've got trading along the vast seas, 120 different class combinations, castle sieging, housing, and more allowing for players to really leave their impact on the world. But wait a second, let's take a look at a recent update to the Korean version that has some people not quite so happy!Posted Feb 17, 2014 by Jeffrey Lerman

The Alliance War Gets It Right

Elder Scrolls Online

There has been a lot of discussion about whether or not The Elder Scrolls Online gets this or that right over the past week or so, but what is really going to make or break ESO is the quality of the game’s Alliance vs. Alliance warfare. Face it, AvA is the feature that really has the potential to set ESO apart from its peers; it’s the game’s secret sauce. Posted Feb 14, 2014 by Michael Bitton

Adventuring in Stros M’kai

Elder Scrolls Online

While I’ll be pledging my allegiance to the Queen and the Aldmeri Dominion at launch, I recently had an opportunity to find out how the other side lives in tackling the starting area of the Daggerfall Covenant: Stros M’kai. Keep in mind, there be spoilers ahead, so turn back now if you’d like to keep the Daggerfall starting experience fresh.Posted Feb 8, 2014 by Michael Bitton

Free to Choose Your Own Path

Elder Scrolls Online

I have to admit a dirty little secret: I have never played even a minute of Skyrim. I’ve watched my bestie play, but never partaken of the wildly popular title myself. So how on Earth did Elder Scrolls Online end up on my personal “most anticipated games of 2014” list. The long and short of it is that Zenimax grabbed my attention by making a game that I believe is largely missing in the often too cartoony genre these days: In short, a more “realistic” looking MMO.Posted Feb 8, 2014 by Suzie Ford

Combat is Deeper than Expected

Elder Scrolls Online

While my usual MO is to get stabby as a stealthy assassin type in MMOs and RPGs, during my run in the recent press beta for The Elder Scrolls Online, I made a Nord Sorcerer this time around to try something different and bring some freshness to the experience. I prefer third-person MMO combat to first person, so I found myself fighting while in third a lot, but I did do some switching around. Your mileage is going to vary, but I'm happy the option exists.
