PAX East Preview - Poised to Make a Big Splash

Gigantic

Recently, at PAX East, I had an opportunity to play Gigantic, Motiga's upcoming entry into the “Action-MOBA” genre. Let's start by getting a few things straight, when I say an action-MOBA, I do not mean a LOL or DOTA clone. This is the new breed of MOBA, more in the style of Smite, which means immersive third-person action, where every attack is a skill-shot. Posted Mar 10, 2015 by Terry OBrien

PAX East Preview - Staying True to Classic ARPGs

Grim Dawn

We just got back from PAX East, and one of the games I took a good look at at was a slick ARPG called Grim Dawn. Currently in production by Crave Entertainment, Grim Dawn is very reminescent of old-school Diablo and Diablo two, with a dark color palette, and some very neat ideas.Now, I must confess to having a soft spot for ARPGs, and any game in the same vein as the venerated Diablo I and II is going to strike very near my heart.

Fish, Ships, and Corgis at PAX East

Trove

Trion hasn’t released tools for content creation in Trove, instead, resourceful players have basically developed their own tools and mod loaders to work with the game’s assets and come up with their own creations. One player even created a pair of Corgi guns. Posted Mar 9, 2015 by Michael Bitton

The More Things Change, The More They Stay the Same

Final Fantasy XV

Final Fantasy XV and its more modern fantasy setting and main cast of friends within a darker action-driven RPG story might not seem quite like the Final Fantasy we’re all familiar with. After playing through a roughly hour-long demo of the game, as the old saying goes - the more things change, the more they stay the same.Posted Mar 7, 2015 by Christina Gonzalez

Echo of Soul PAX East Quick Hands On

Friday at PAX East I had the opportunity to play Echo of Soul, an MMORPG that was released over in South Korea back in 2013. Following a very successful year, it was then released in China and Thailand, where it also performed well, and now Aeria Games is bringing it over here to the U.S. Tom Nichols, of Aeria, and June Sung Kim, of Nvious Corporation, were kind enough to give us a little hands-on preview of what’s coming up.Posted Mar 7, 2015 by Terry OBrien

Jesse McCree the BAMF Bounty Hunter

Overwatch

Blizzard announced two new playable characters for Overwatch at yesterday’s panel: Zarya, a new female tank with a particle cannon and McCree, a six-shooter carrying bounty hunter who’s clearly not one for modesty given the fact he wears the title of BAMF on his belt buckle. We had a chance to sample McCree for ourselves on the show floor of this year’s PAX East and the character definitely lives up to his chosen moniker.Posted Mar 7, 2015 by Michael Bitton

GDC 2015 - Kabam's Spirit Lords

At this week's Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco, freemium publisher Kabam showed its latest project, a soon-to-be-released fantasy action-RPG called Spirit Lords. Afew hours playing the Spirit Lords beta revealed that it's a vivid and humorous dungeon crawler that successfully combines traditional role-playing mechanics with the quick-play sensibilities of mobile games.

Eisenhorn: Xenos GDC 2015 Preview

What does the inside of a Warhammer 40K hotel look like? That’s the kind of question that the folks at Pixel Hero Games are asking in the development of their new 3D action adventure game, Eisenhorn: Xenos. Eisenhorn follows the adventures of the titular character from the 40K trilogy by Dan Abnett, and explores a side of Games Workshop’s universe that has heretofore taken a backseat to more popular aspects like Space Marines: that of the Imperium.Posted Mar 5, 2015 by Som Pourfarzaneh

GDC 2015 Preview - We Are Excited

Sword Coast Legends

Call it Baldur’s Gate nostalgia, call it Planescape: Torment elitism, but I’m a sucker for 3D isometric, party-based RPGs, and doubly so for games based in Dungeons and Dragons-inspired campaign settings. Enter Sword Coast Legends, a new Forgotten Realms-based RPG from n-Space and Digital Extremes that is being touted as an evolution of games like Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter Nights and draws its inspiration from 5th Edition D&D.Posted Mar 5, 2015 by Som Pourfarzaneh

GDC 2015 - The Goal is Something Different

Revival

It’s sometimes easier to describe a video game by what it’s not, and if you’ve taken even a passing glance at IllFonic’s new sandbox MMORPG, Revival, you’ll know that it prides itself on being nothing akin to a traditional MMO. Described by the developers as Ultima Online meets Skyrim, it’s a go anywhere, fight anyone type of game that prides itself on realism and player interaction. Posted Mar 4, 2015 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Playing Heart of Thorns is Like Coming Home

Guild Wars 2

It’s no secret I’m a fan of ArenaNet’s Guild Wars 2. But, like many of you, I’ve been dying for something meatier to chew on than the Living World for some time now. There seem to be so many features and additions we’ve all be waiting for ages to see added. With Heart of Thorns, the first full expansion to Guild Wars 2, ArenaNet seems poised to offer us all those things and more.Posted Mar 3, 2015 by William Murphy

Supernova - Primal Game Studio's MOBA/RTS Hybrid

At a preview event in downtown San Francisco, Bandai Namco Games and Hungarian developer Primal Game Studio revealed their current collaboration—a sci-fi MOBA called Supernova. The game, currently in its alpha stage, contains some predictably rough edges, but from what I saw at the event, it looks to be a more strategic kind of MOBA.Posted Feb 26, 2015 by Neilie Johnson

A Preview of Characters and Warfare

Crowfall

Red Thomas takes a look at character creation and advancement in Crowfall. Then, Red previews warfare and speculates on what players can expect on the battlefield.Posted Feb 24, 2015 by Red Thomas

A Preview of the Universe and Economy

Crowfall

Red Thomas braves the frigid Texas winter and Austin traffic to get an early peak at ArtCraft’s new game, Crowfall in this first of a two part series previewing the new game in development. What he finds, leaves him feeling more than a little giddy.Posted Feb 24, 2015 by Red Thomas

An Exclusive Preview of the Revenant’s Skills

Guild Wars 2

We were able to chat with ArenaNet’s Roy Cronacher and Jon Peters this week about the 9th and newest profession for Guild Wars 2, The Revenant. Debuting briefly at PAX South, with more details being released over the course of this week, the Rev (as I like to call him) is unlike any of the other Heavy Professions in Guild Wars canon so far.

The Skycastles Bring TERA's Action to the Heavens

TERA

If you are an MMORPG fan like I am, it is easy to become a little depressed, thanks to the seemingly endless discussions over the “death” of MMOs and studio closures or while reading the comments section. (Note to self: stop it.) Even with my Jedi-level “game journalist” training (I put that on all of my business cards) I still find myself occasionally feeling down. Blue. Sad. Wondering about the future of “real” MMO gaming.Posted Feb 18, 2015 by Beau Hindman

We Came. We Claimed. We Conquered

Albion Online

We came. We claimed. We conquered. Albion Online is a Free-to-Play game in its alpha-testing stage which offers a cross-platform sandbox MMO on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS. Think of it as a living world with no NPC vendors, no questlines and no NPCs to report to. Instead you, your guild and your friends decide who owns what: it is an entirely player-driven economy with full-loot hardcore PvP.Posted Feb 9, 2015 by Alexander Brown

Our Supersized Update 6 Preview

Elder Scrolls Online

With patch 1.6 now live on the Private Test Server (PTS) we finally get to enjoy all the exciting changes we’ve been speaking about for the last few months. In this preview I’ll be taking a look at the Champion system, Justice System, and I’m even going to discuss some of the aspects of PvP that will be changing.Posted Feb 4, 2015 by Ryan Getchell

Diving into the Protogames Initiative

WildStar

WildStar is close to releasing its next big content update to the live servers, and we were recently given a good look at The Protogames Initiative. Chad Moore and Mike Donatelli were on hand to show us everything the patch looks to add to the world of Nexus and beyond.Posted Feb 3, 2015 by William Murphy

A Gothic Roguelike Not for the Faint of Heart

Darkest Dungeon

At its most basic level, Darkest Dungeon is a Gothic themed side-scrolling turn-based RPG that emphasizes the psychological stresses of dungeon crawling. Ever wonder what’s going on in the head of your Demon Hunter as she explores the nightmarish depths of Hell in Diablo 3? Surely, our heroes are tough – but at some point all of this horror must take a toll, right?Posted Jan 30, 2015 by Michael Bitton
