Living Story Season 2 Tour

Guild Wars 2

Guild Wars 2’s Season 2 launched earlier this week, and aims to set a new precedent for the game’s Living Story content. ArenaNet invited us to take a tour of Season 2’s first episode, Gates of Maguuma, and I’ve come away from it having a more clear understanding of their shift in direction for storytelling.Posted Jul 3, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh

E3 2014 Preview: Season 2 is a Go!

Guild Wars 2

Bill and I met with ArenaNet at E3 to get a first look at Guild Wars 2’s Living Story Season 2 content, and have been keeping our mouths shut about it for a solid month. It hasn’t been easy, primarily because of the intriguing nature of what we were shown. Also, we’re chatterboxes.Posted Jul 1, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Games of Glory - Hands-on Preview

“When I grow up, I want to be a clone-handler.” Isn't that what we all said as kids? Fine, I guess it's just me, but if even clone-handling played no part in your juvenile dreams, it could soon be a part of your grown-up ones. Last week, developer Lightbulb Crew invited a few members of the press to check out a very early version of its upcoming MOBA Games of Glory, and I must say, as far as hybrid genres go, it makes a good case.Posted Jun 29, 2014 by Neilie Johnson

Orcs Must Die!: Unchained - Hands-on Preview

Robot Entertainment first expanded upon traditional tower defense mechanics in 2011 with the frenetic Orcs Must Die! The sequel, Orcs Must Die! 2 continued to elaborate on the genre by adding co-op play, and this year, we see Robot's most ambitious tower defense-derived idea yet—team-based PvP. This week, the guys at Robot challenged the press to a savage siege-off during a hands-on preview of its third game, Orcs Must Die!: Unchained, and it was a match to remember.

Our First Look from E3

World of Speed

Hello everyone and welcome back to should be my last recap article from E3 before I get back to my regularly scheduled weekly column. I think next week I’ll focus on all the information pouring out of the Goblinworks camp about the Pathfinder Online alpha. But until then let us talk about another ground breaking MMORPG, World of Speed, only in this game instead of taking your avatar and picking up mighty weapons and slaying prime evils you… race cars?Posted Jun 27, 2014 by Robert Lashley

Dungeon of the Endless Preview

Dungeon of the Endless

Dungeon of the Endless is a bit of a mind-bender to describe. In fact, when I first heard of it, I had trouble conceptualizing what the game even was. A rogue-like melded with tower defense? What does that even look like? If ever there were two genres I didn’t expect to meet, those were it. Imagine my surprise when I found that it’s also a full-fledged RPG with definite RTS leanings. Mind. Blown.Posted Jun 27, 2014 by Christopher Coke

World War Machine - Wall-E with Missiles & Laser Guns

Imagine Wall-E all amped up with missiles and laser guns. Imagine a post nuclear world where human survived by putting their thoughts into robots to survive. Enter the landscape of World War Machine. We got the chance to sit down with the demo and fans of action RPGs like Diablo will not be disappointed in this game. Posted Jun 26, 2014 by Garrett Fuller

Nosgoth: Arena Combat in the World of Kain

Nosgoth

I have some very fond memories of playing through Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Interactive’s Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver in college, and have been wondering for quite a while about the status of the series. As it turns out, Psyonix and Square Enix have been toiling away at a new title, Nosgoth, based on the titular dark fantasy setting, but it’s a bit different from what you might be expecting from a Legacy of Kain game.Posted Jun 24, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Hands-On with the PS4 Version

Diablo 3

Although I really enjoy Diablo 3, I must admit that I have a particular bias towards the PC version, simply because of my preference for playing action RPGs with a mouse and keyboard. I play it almost exclusively multiplayer, however, and have thought at times that the experience could benefit from some couch co-op once in a while.Posted Jun 23, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Legion of Heroes: Rethinking Mobile MMORPGs

Upcoming free to play new mobile MMORPG Legion of Heroes aims to sate MMORPG hunger on the go with its upcoming release on mobile devices. The game is set for release on both iOS and Android devices. I spent some time with the game's closed beta recently on a tablet running Android 4.4.3. So how does it play? It might take some getting used to, but it could surprise some players in a good way.Posted Jun 23, 2014 by Christina Gonzalez

Who Doesn't Want to Play a Goblin?

Styx - Master of Shadows

One of the best things about going to game conventions is seeing games that really surprise you. For the second time in a row Styx, Master of Shadows has done just that. If you are a fan of stealth style RPGs where charging in is not recommended, then you will love Styx. The goblin that hides, poisons water by puking, and cuts foes down with leaping death from the rafters has shown us two solid demos now. We can only wait until the game launches later this year.

Beta Hands-on

Lego Minifigures Online

Thanks to a string of successful LEGO video games and a hit LEGO Movie, LEGOs are once again a big part of mainstream culture. That means the time is right for an online LEGO game, and Funcom's seizing the opportunity. Launching this summer, LEGO Minifigures Online is currently in beta, and in its present state, though missing a good chunk of its final content is already more fun than a barrel of Minifigures.

Mordheim: Closely Following the Tabletop Set

Mordheim

We met with Yves Bordeleau and Vincent Gallopain of Rogue Factor, for a look at some early gameplay footage of their upcoming strategy RPG Mordheim at E3 last week, and the game is looking pretty interesting. Mordheim is based on Games Workshop's tabletop skirmish game of the same name, and the devs have closely followed the tabletop rule set, with a few exceptions, which we will discuss in a moment.Posted Jun 21, 2014 by Terry OBrien

Dipping Into Water and Caves

Landmark

On the Monday before E3 Landmark launched a patch that added in swimming and caves to the game. While at E3 I had a chance to catch up with Omeed Dariani, Brand Strategist for the EverQuest franchise, and find out what has been going on recently in the world of Landmark.

Color Me Optimistic

H1Z1

When I first watched the stream where John Smedley, President SOE, announced H1Z1 I was more than a little concerned in the direction the development of the game would take. After my meeting with Adam Clegg, one of the developers working on H1Z1, to discuss development on the Survival Horror MMORPG I have started to believe this game can do well in the genre.Posted Jun 20, 2014 by Robert Lashley

A Post-Pandemic New York City In Your Living Room

The Division

I live just outside of New York City. I grew up here. As a kid, and still to this day, one of my all time favorite movies is Escape From New York. No one can deny the idea of a post apocalyptic city as being immensely fun in a game world. Ubisoft’s The Division brings a post pandemic New York City into your living room and puts you right in the action as part of the team sent in to liberate New York and take the city back after the deadly virus.

An Online Version of Cannonball Run

The Crew

Want to race? How about we take some missions from a massive underground circuit of street racers. Or maybe we just drive cross country? Even better, lets get our Crew together and enter into a massive multiplayer online version of the Cannonball Run. All of those elements make The Crew a premiere racing game, that is happily very much an MMORPG. We were very surprised by the game and while all of us here play MMOs, not all of us are racing fans, but we are now. Posted Jun 19, 2014 by Garrett Fuller

The RPGs of Yesteryear, Made Anew

Pillars of Eternity

There was a bit of controversy when well-known AAA studio Obsidian reached out to Kickstarter in order to fund a passion project. Pillars of Eternity is a classic Infinity Engine style RPG in the vein of Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale. To be sure, as much as we would love updated games in this style, the fact is that most people with the venture capital money likely think we don’t. Posted Jun 19, 2014 by William Murphy

Steampunk Meets Fantasy & They Punch Each Other

Black Gold Online

To say that the world of Black Gold Online (BGO) brings together steampunk and fantasy would be a bit misleading. The two genres definitely play a large thematic role in Snail Games’ new MMORPG, but it’s not a collaborative one. BGO pits steampunk and fantasy against one another in a two-faction PvP conflict over a newly discovered mystical energy source: the eponymous Black Gold.Posted Jun 18, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh

E3 Preview - Every Star in the Universe

Elite: Dangerous

At E3 last week, we had the opportunity to take Elite for a test spin. Not only that, but we were given some time with, wait for it… the Oculus Rift version! Garrett and Bill were generous enough to let me take it for a spin since I had never tried the Oculus Rift prior to this, and there is only one word to describe the experience: MIND-BLOWING!Posted Jun 18, 2014 by Terry OBrien
