More About Warplots

WildStar

At PAX East this past weekend, Carbine Studios unveiled more information about the much-anticipated PVP feature known as Warplots. Lead PVP Designer Jen Gordy took us through an overview of how the system would work and showed us some of the customization options available for the plots. She called it a teamcentric system, 40 on 40 PVP featuring fortresses that are prepared for battle whilst aloft and then plopped down hard onto the ground to duke it out with an opposing Warplot.Posted Apr 16, 2014 by Jean Prior

This RPG-Roguelike Blends Humor & Fun

Dragon Fin Soup

Dragon Fin Soup isn’t trying to start a revolution, but it is bringing the nostalgia factor and blending it with modern gameplay and a ton of humor. The upcoming RPG blended with roguelike gameplay elements is inspired by the kinds of games the developers (Grimm Bros, a five man team) want to play and spent much time playing.

Transistor: A Beautiful, Story-Driven Experience

You wake up on the floor after a chaotic event, get up and go grab the huge JRPG-esque sword that’s somehow….talking to you? Last year, at PAX East, one of my favorite things on the floor was Supergiant Games’ Transistor. At that point, recently announced. The game blends genres, most prominently action RPG with strategy combat.This past weekend at PAX East I got the chance to demo the game, which will be released on May 20th.

The Flexibility to be a Sandbox RPG We Want to Play

TUG

In every gamer’s life, there comes a time to take a look at the horizon and see what new and innovating things are in the works. I hit that point recently and began a search to see what could peek my interests. Was there really anything out there that had the potential for different in either its mechanics or its development? This search lead me to TUG (The Untitled Game) by Nerd Kingdom where I read this description and was instantly intrigued. Posted Apr 7, 2014 by Franklin Rinaldi

Tactics - A Solid Addition to the Squad-Based RTS Genre

Line of Defense

It is small squad combat and is a companion game to the upcoming MMO Line of Defense where you control a patrol of four Galactic Commandos (yes… another name for space marines), each with different skills, infiltrating rebel bases, basically killing everything in your way.Posted Apr 5, 2014 by Carolyn Koh

VR Dogfighting IN SPACE

EVE Online

I’ll admit that I have a peculiar fascination with the EVE franchise, even though I’ve yet to partake in anything related to EVE Online first-hand. There’s something decidedly hardcore about CCP Games’ flagship title that speaks to me, and although Dust 514 didn’t turn out so excitingly, the spinoff certainly still piqued my interest.Posted Apr 4, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Mordheim: Warhammer Meets XCOM, Sort Of

From its dark fantasy setting to its heritage as a tabletop miniatures wargame, the Warhammer franchise has always been a bit hardcore. Rogue Factor and Focus Interactive’s newly announced third-person tactical strategy RPG, Mordheim: City of the Damned, certainly looks like it will fit that mold. With a gritty art palette, permadeath options, and player looting, Mordheim will aim to appeal to Warhammer fans and hardcore strategy gamers alike.Posted Apr 3, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Albion Online

Last week while many gamers were celebrating the release of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls another lesser known MMORPG was opening its doors for an alpha test. Sandbox Interactive, a developer based out of Berlin,Germany, allowed players trickle into their freshman effort, Albion Online. We got our hands on the game, and have our own first impressions to report.Posted Apr 3, 2014 by Robert Lashley

Saving the Suburbs

Monster Madness Online

If you like saving the suburbs from hordes of monsters, building your own weapons, and some seriously stylish art and graphics then Monster Madness Online is the perfect game for you. The game hosts an online hub which allows for players to meet up and go off test their skills against the monster invasion. We got to see the game at GDC and had fun demoing the title across mulitple platforms. Posted Apr 2, 2014 by Garrett Fuller

Combining Racing and MMOs

World of Speed

World of Speed Online combines the two worlds of racing games and MMOs. In the past there have been several games which tried to tackle this combination. World of Speed brings some of the great elements of the racing game genre into the online space where players can form teams, race opponents, and even build their own tracks. We met with the crew from Slightly Mad Studios to have a look at the game and get the low down. Posted Apr 1, 2014 by Garrett Fuller

Zombies, Monsters, Robots, and Guns Oh My!

Zombies, Monsters, Robots

Zombies. Monsters. Robots. No joke, those are the three things that En Masse Entertainment is counting on having enough geek culture influence to carry its next online game, aptly titled Zombies Monsters Robots. ZMR is a cooperative and competitive free to play online third-person shooter. But En Masse are good people, so after seeing the promise in ZMR, we thought we’d at least give you a taste of what you can expect from their sophomore release. Posted Apr 1, 2014 by William Murphy

An Exclusive Look at The Curse of Icewind Dale

Neverwinter

The Curse of Icewind Dale is set to be Neverwinter’s third free expansion (or module), and it’s due out this Spring. Packed to the gills with new content, gear, quests, and loads of PVP, we spoke with Development Producer Rob Overmeyer of Cryptic about all things Icewind Dale. Posted Mar 31, 2014 by William Murphy

Shards: Giving Power to the Player

Shards

This week we spoke to Derek Brinkmann and Tim Cotten about Shards. Going all the way back to Ultima Online they have now banded together to create Shards. This sandbox style RPG with MMO capabilities not only builds an impressive world for players to explore, it also puts the toolset in the hands of the players to create their own worlds. Citadel Studios now is about to unleash Shards on the world in a few weeks with a playable demo at PAX East. Here is a bit of a preview. Posted Mar 30, 2014 by Garrett Fuller

World of Diving: SCUBA Without Getting Water All Over Yourself

World of Diving

At one time or another, you’ve probably looked at the Oculus Rift and thought to yourself, “I bet those would make some bangin’ underwater goggles.” That may not be the exact sentiment expressed by the developers at Vertigo Games, but in our GDC 2014 preview, I was told that the form factor of the new piece of tech did in fact provide the initial inspiration for World of Diving.Posted Mar 30, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Styx: Master of Shadows

Styx

If you played the game Of Orcs and Men then perhaps you are familiar with Styx, the skulking goblin who helps the Orcs through the story. Well now Styx is getting his own game and this disgusting little goblin made quite an impact on us at GDC. Styx is a stealth game in the vein of Thief or Assassin's Creed. Styx is a goblin after all so going straight into a fight with warriors or inquisitors does not do well for him. He must keep hidden and find new ways to accomplish his goals.Posted Mar 28, 2014 by Garrett Fuller

RPG Fun with Miniatures

Prodigy

To whosoever among us thinking that s/he doesn’t have a collector’s obsession: I challenge you to play Prodigy and not want to buy all the delightfully detailed miniatures that tie into its game world. Hanakai Studio’s new turn-based, tactical RPG will aim to scratch that collector’s itch through some clever tech that allows you to bridge the gap between physical minis and digital gameplay.Posted Mar 28, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Playing an Ent in The Breaking of Isengard

Lord of the Rings Online

The 7th anniversary of Lord of the Rings Online is right around the corner and so is the release of Lord of the Rings Online’s 13th Update: The Breaking of Isengard. Previously, players had taken part in Isengard content by being held captive by Saruman and the orcs within. Now? The story has progressed with the books and players will get to explore what happened and how Saruman came to lose power. Yes folks, that means lots and lots of Ents and the Entmoot.Posted Mar 27, 2014 by William Murphy

You Got Diablo in My LEGO!

Lego Minifigures Online

The team at Funcom was able to meet with us about their new MMO at GDC. It was not crazed wizards and hardy barbarians, nor was it wild factions hiding magic in today’s society. It was LEGO. LEGO Minifigures Online captures what is so much fun about action RPGs and online worlds in a game that both adults and kids will enjoy. Executive Producer Lawrence Poe was on hand to explain working in the LEGO world. Posted Mar 27, 2014 by William Murphy

Tribal Wars 2 GDC 2014 Preview

Tribal Wars 2

Interestingly, German developer InnoGames was established in 2007 out of a very successful hobby project, Tribal Wars. At GDC this past week, I got a chance to take a look at Tribal Wars 2, their forthcoming sequel to the free-to-play persistent strategy game.Posted Mar 26, 2014 by Som Pourfarzaneh
