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

The Strain Has Infected Me

WildStar

One of the best parts of the MMO-side of our E3 was getting a sneak preview of WildStar’s upcoming first content patch: The Strain. Led on a walkthrough by Carbine’s own Jeremy Gaffney, we toured the all new zone of Blighthaven, the new five man public dungeon of The Nursery, and got a look at some of the all snazzy looking new Strain-infected gear you’ll be able to nab.

E3 2014 - Seeing What the Buzz is All About

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Earlier this week I told everyone that one of my favorite things about E3 is discovering the little gems that are hovering just under my radar that I usually get to see on the last day of the convention. For the record this year my favorite such game was Pillars of Eternity. But as much as I love that little game nothing can compete with what I consider my personal game of show, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt.Posted Jun 17, 2014 by Robert Lashley

Lichdom E3 2014 Preview

Lichdom

Another game we took a look at during E3 was Xaviant's Lichdom, a FPS/RPG hybrid, that immediately struck us as a spiritual successor to the old-school games Heretic and Hexen. Developers have really created, what they refer to as a “titanium cannon” as opposed to the glass-cannon role that most games pigeon-hole mages into. The result is a character that feels extremely potent, wielding both offensive and defensive magics as he wades into the fray.Posted Jun 17, 2014 by Terry OBrien

Can Perfect World Top Age of Wushu?

Swordsman

The North American closed beta for Perfect World’s Swordsman begins this week, and while we were in LA we sat down with the PWE team for a walkthrough of character creation, some background on the story, and then a brief hands-on demo.Posted Jun 17, 2014 by William Murphy

E3 Preview: The Dragon Age We’ve Waited For?

Dragon Age: Inquisition

If we had an E3 Award for “Best Game for which we waited in line for 40 minutes even though we had VIP access but then were treated to a 30-minute demo that blew all other presentations out of the water,” then Bioware and EA’s Dragon Age: Inquisition would have cleaned house. The newest installment in the iconic Dragon Age series looks every bit the part as herald for a new era of single-player fantasy RPGs, and totally stole the show for me.Posted Jun 17, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh

More Going On Here Than Meets the Eye

Destiny

You have probably already heard about and formulated an opinion on Destiny already though – Activision is pouring half a billion dollars into its marketing budget after all – and you wouldn’t be alone. Based on the footage and information available to me, it seemed like Destiny would be little more than a glorified Borderlands with a slap of Halo paint. While my initial assessment isn’t erroneously far from the truth, there is a lot more going on here than meets the eye.Posted Jun 16, 2014 by David Jagneaux

Hands On At E3 2014

Skyforge

This time around, the Allods Team studio has enlisted the help of veteran RPG developer Obsidian Entertainment to bring Skyforge to Western Audiences. This week at E3, we were able to go hands-on with the alpha build of the new MMORPG, and get a feel for the combat and Ascension Atlas: the progression tree for Skyforge’s characters.Posted Jun 16, 2014 by William Murphy

HUNT: Horrors of the Gilded Age - E3 Preview

HUNT

One of my favorite parts of E3 is wandering around to appointments on the last day of the show to get an early look at games that I may not have heard about before arriving at the convention. This year was no different. During the first two days at E3 I had seen a number of interesting banners for Hunt hanging from the ceiling in different halls of the LA convention center. While I had no previous knowledge of the game the banners did serve their purpose and piqued my interest. Posted Jun 15, 2014 by Robert Lashley

BattleCry E3 2014 Preview

At E3 2014 one of the games that really caught our eye was BattleCry. We were excited to see the announcement for the game a few weeks ago. The bloody violent trailer was great to watch. However we were not sure about the persistence of this online world. Happily we learned quickly from MMO veteran Rich Vogel that the game has a persistent War Front, progression, and even some crafting. Needless to say, we are listing the game on MMORPG.com.Posted Jun 14, 2014 by Garrett Fuller

E3 Preview – Build Your Orc Army

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

What a way to cap my E3 2014. We had a resounding 30 appointments or so over three days this week in LA, and among those many games there’s hardly a one that didn’t have something at least a little redeeming about what was on show. However, few games really grabbed our attention. Those which did, we’ll be announcing in our E3 Awards in the coming days. One of those games that did knock our socks off, though it’s still being debated on whether or not it will win an award, was Shadow of Mordor. Posted Jun 13, 2014 by William Murphy

Up Close & Personal with the Game

Albion Online

In June I had the pleasure of visiting the Sandbox Interactive games studio for an up-close and personal introduction to the forthcoming Albion Online, a sandbox MMO, due out in the last quarter of this year. Posted Jun 13, 2014 by Alexander Brown

E3 Preview: Epic Battles are Epic

Kingdom Under Fire II

There’s something undeniably epic about commanding several squads of troops into battle and running pell-mell after them with reckless abandon. Blueside’s new MMORPG, Kingdom Under Fire II (KUF2), somehow manages to give you an RTS-style feel of tactically directing groups of minions around the battlefield, while retaining the single-character progression and combat that have become hallmarks of modern action MMOs.Posted Jun 12, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh

E3 PvE Preview: Halo Evolved

Destiny

Two things surprised me at our hands-on PvE preview today of Bungie's new MMO darling, Destiny. In the first case, I was astounded by how well the game played and looked in its alpha state. In the second, I was astonished by how I well and truly CRUSHED AT IT.Posted Jun 11, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Free to Be Cool

Warhammer 40.000: Eternal Crusade

Hey guys, I am writing this one from a hotel room in L.A., after having just sat in on the E3 Eternal Crusade roundtable presentation. The biggest piece of news was the announcement that Behaviour is pushing back the release of the Founders Program to the 25th of June. While disappointing, the pushback was necessary in order to allow the implementation of all the neat things that Behaviour wanted to get into the Founders Program.Posted Jun 11, 2014 by Terry OBrien

A Hands On Visit to Tokyo & What’s to Come

The Secret World

As you might be aware, the game underwent some transition and the team became a smaller one. Yet the dedication to the promised content prevailed, and it is finally ready. We got a peek into the new content with Game Director Joel Bylos this week, who took us through what players can expect when they finally enter Tokyo.Posted Jun 4, 2014 by Christina Gonzalez

First Look at Lifeline

State of Decay

Lifeline is the second DLC for Undead Lab’s State of Decay. At the beginning of Lifeline you find yourself dropped into the middle of a new city that has been overrun by zombies. Apparently the military in this game calls them zed. You are immediately thrust into the middle of the action and will have to make your way to base. There is no slow burn here.Posted May 29, 2014 by Robert Lashley

Bringing Back the Old School RPG

Wasteland 2

One of Wasteland's original developers, Brian Fargo, left Interplay to form inXile Entertainment in 2003 but it wasn't until 2012 that the KickStarter initiative for Wasteland 2 was announced along with the news that many of the original development team would also be working on the sequel. Wasteland 2 became one of the earliest and most quickly funded KickStarter projects ever proving that the 'old school RPG' is still fashionable and desired.Posted May 27, 2014 by Suzie Ford
