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.

Inside the Ebonheart Pact Starter Area

Elder Scrolls Online

When it comes to The Elder Scrolls Online, the IP will bring its own set of expectations from both fans that have been with the series since the beginning and those millions that have come to TES via Skyrim. It is to these last players that the starting area for the Ebonheart Pact will offer the most familiarity. Those aligned with the Ebonheart Pact will find themselves on Bleakrock Island, right off the coast of Skyrim. Posted Feb 8, 2014 by Christina Gonzalez

Diving Deep Into ESO's Crafting

Elder Scrolls Online

Crafting in The Elder Scrolls Online is surprisingly deep and satisfying. As a whole, ESO is a game that will often surprise you whenever you try to play it more like an MMO with an Elder Scrolls skin. The team at Zenimax Online has gone out of its way to make it obvious that ESO is first and foremost an Elder Scrolls game and this extends to the game’s crafting system. For the most part, ESO’s crafting plays out just like it would in Skyrim or Oblivion.Posted Feb 7, 2014 by Michael Bitton

The Comprehensive Good and Bad of ESO

Elder Scrolls Online

Today we’re going to have a lot of previews of Elder Scrolls Online. From starting zones to crafting, to fifteen minutes of our own in-game footage. You’ll get several different views on the game, but for my part I’m going to list the good and bad of what I’ve played so far. This was the first time I’ve really been able to focus on one character and play for over ten hours, and I can say definitively: I’m now getting very excited to play this game for real at launch.Posted Feb 7, 2014 by William Murphy

War Lore: Edge of the Mists

Guild Wars 2

A lot has been said about Guild Wars 2's The Edge of the Mists, but thus far the discussion's focused on the map's mechanical aspects. Though last week's teaser trailer hinted that Scarlet's evil designs could bleed into the Mists, developer ArenaNet has thus far kept the details under wraps. Starting today, some of our curiosity will be satisfied as we embark on a quest to reveal the frightening vision of Tyria's most infamous uber-villain. Posted Feb 4, 2014 by Neilie Johnson

Nosgoth - Light on Lore, But Shows Promise

The Legacy of Kain series, with its two anti-heroes, Kain himself and Raziel, has been dormant since 2003. Psyonix takes the reins this time from central franchise developer Crystal Dynamics, in order to make a spinoff, albeit one that takes place within the series' land of Nosgoth. The game itself, called Nosgoth, is an upcoming free to play third-person competitive PvP game. Posted Jan 31, 2014 by Christina Gonzalez

The Sandbox MMO Begins Alpha TODAY

Landmark

Sony Online Entertainment has made no bones about the fact that EverQuest Next: Landmark is going to be something special and a true sandbox title that will cater to a huge variety and type of MMO player. We had the opportunity to spend time as the first alpha group in EQN:L and for a chance to chat with the developers about the game that kicks off the Founders Alpha later today. The most pervasive thought is that there truly is something for everyone in SOE's most ambitious game to date.Posted Jan 31, 2014 by Suzie Ford

Memoirs of a Sandbox Survivor

Rust

One of the biggest growing trends in PC gaming right now is the concept of early access to unfinished games for a reduced price. While MMO players are often familiar with things like alpha and beta testing, it's new territory for lots of gamers. Rust, a game from the creators of Garry's Mod, is one of the latest entries in the ever-expanding realm of early access games and we took the time to dive in and see if this brutal quest for survival is worth your time and money yet.Posted Jan 30, 2014 by David Jagneaux

Behaviour's Design and Passion for 40K

Warhammer 40.000: Eternal Crusade

This past week we showed you some very early footage of Eternal Crusade. I wanted to write up a recap of the weekend we spent in Montreal and talk about what Behaviour had shown us. There are a few parts to this story that really get me excited for what this game will offer. It may not be on the screen in the demos but you can definitely find it in the interviews and also in the passion that the team has for the 40K license.Posted Jan 28, 2014 by Garrett Fuller

Wasteland 2: About 30% Finished and Awesome

One of my all-time-top-ten-life-decisions (hey, I'm 23 there haven't been many) is when I traded-in Wario Land on Gameboy and made off with Fallout 2. In an act of incredible foresight, and laughable PEGI standards, I managed to snag one of the greatest RPGs ever simply on the basis that I thought the 'guy on the box looks proper cool'.Posted Jan 10, 2014 by Adam Tingle
