Beta Impressions of the Kickstarter NRPG

Earthlock: Festival of Magic

What is an NRPG? Well, it’s what happens with Norwegian developer Snowcastle Games decides to make a JRPG. You get the fundamental turn-based combat goodness of the classics with the stylistic sensibilities and story-telling of Norway. And, as it happens, that mixture makes for a sublime RPG. Read on for our impressions of the recent beta release for Kickstarter backers.Posted Jul 15, 2016 by William Murphy

Living Story Season 3 - Out of the Shadows Begins July 26th

Guild Wars 2

After the rather rocky launch of Heart of Thorns, Guild Wars 2 is finally moving forward with the next season of its evolving Living Story, pushing deeper into Maguuma Jungle and opening up even more questions in the aftermath of its last chapter. Out of the Shadows, this first episode of season 3, will continue weaving story threads introduced in Heart of Thorns when it launches on July 26.Posted Jul 12, 2016 by Steven Messner

Shadows of the Hist – Exploring the Cradle of Shadows

Elder Scrolls Online

On August 1st, Elder Scrolls Online will launch its 5th DLC since becoming Tamriel Unlimited: Shadows of the Hist (for the XB1 and PS4 the date is August 16th). Focused on adding two new big 4-player dungeons, a new style parlor, costume dying, and loads of changes in the base game patch, Shadows of the Hist is poised to bring a bolt of dungeon-crawling goodness into the game.Posted Jul 11, 2016 by William Murphy

Shadows of the Hist – Uncovering the Ruins of Mazzatun

Elder Scrolls Online

When Shadows of the Hist launches in August, it’s bringing with it two brand new massive 4-player dungeons into Elder Scrolls Online. Today we’ve got an exclusive developer journal from the Dungeon Team at Zenimax detailing one of those new locales: The Ruins of Mazzatun.Posted Jul 8, 2016 by William Murphy

Vampyr: A Grim ARPG With Tangible Consequences

Vampyr

One of the more intriguing games I saw at E3 this year was Vampyr, a "semi-open world" action RPG from Dontnod, the developers of Life is Strange. But don't make the mistake of thinking that Vampyr is going to be full of teenage angst and heart-warming moments of friendship. So far it looks violent, grim, and captivating—despite the fact that I have some pretty big reservations on whether or not it can deliver on everything it promises to.Posted Jul 1, 2016 by Steven Messner

Day One of Head Start

Riders of Icarus

I’ve said before that Riders of Icarus from Nexon and WeMade is a solid, if standard, MMORPG. I’ve spent some more time with the game since it hit Open Beta Head Start, and I can’t help feeling that I’m starting to really enjoy myself. Read on for our early impressions of the “release build” for Nexon’s latest imported MMO.Posted Jun 30, 2016 by William Murphy

Battle Chasers: NightWar is a Gorgeous Return to JRPG Fundamentals

Battle Chasers: NightWar

Battle Chasers: Nightwar looks like it leapt from the pages of a comic book, which is fitting because technically it did. But the reason I'm saying that is because, of the many games I saw this year at E3, Nightwar's visual aesthetic has stuck with me since then. Sometimes I just think about how amazing Calibretto, the sentient war golem, looks on screen. If nothing else, Nightwar is going to be a visual treat.Posted Jun 29, 2016 by Steven Messner

Capturing the Epic Fights of the Lord of the Rings Movies

The Dwarves

The Dwarves is one of the few games I can't get out of my head since seeing it at E3. While the comparison might be a tad unfair, The Dwarves reminds me of the Lord of the Rings movie tie-in video games that released across the PC, PS2, and Xbox over a decade ago. If you never played them, they were a fantastic blend of action RPG that saw members of the fellowship taking up swords in the iconic set piece fights of the movie.Posted Jun 27, 2016 by Steven Messner

NCSoft’s Latest is a Pleasant Surprise

MXM: Master X Master

I didn’t really know what to expect when I logged into Master X Master (MXM) this weekend for the first ever Alpha weekend test. Fact is, I kind of just assumed it would be “yet another MOBA” with tacked on PVE missions. After spending some time in the game this weekend, it turns out it’s a lot more and quite fun to play.Posted Jun 27, 2016 by William Murphy

E3 2016 - When Being Evil is a Day Job

Tyranny

Tyranny is not your typical RPG. Instead of being filled with hope and wide-eyed enthusiasm for justice, it places you in a world that has already fallen to the forces of evil—the forces you work for. At E3, I got a chance to go hands on with Tyranny for about a half an hour, exploring a bit of the story and new refinements to both the combat and just the game in general, some which were subtle but also extremely welcome.Posted Jun 24, 2016 by Steven Messner

ELEX Is One of My Favorite Games from E3 2016

ELEX

It feels really weird to admit that Elex is one of the few games that really left an impression on me at E3. For one, the state in which I saw it was pretty rough, and it was immediately obvious that Elex has a mountain of obstacles to climb before it will be anywhere near ready. Despite all that, I walked out of the demo feeling strangely enthused by the whole thing. Maybe it's because Elex is developed by Piranha Bytes, the names behind Gothic and Risen.Posted Jun 23, 2016 by Steven Messner

E3 2016 - MXM Has a Unique Twist on a Tiring Concept

I need to confess, when NCsoft first showed me MXM last year I was pretty skeptical. While the version we played wasn't localized, it was evident that NCsoft was trying to push into the free-to-play space of other MOBAs—which at the time seemed like an awful idea to me. But MXM isn't a MOBA, it smartly borrows some of those ideas, a few more from action RPGs, and then even a sprinkling from MMOs, and turns that all into something that so far feels distinct and different.Posted Jun 22, 2016 by Steven Messner

Soulfighter Incoming & Much More in the Future

Blade & Soul

Since launch, Blade and Soul has maintained a steady cadence of updates and classes to play, and next week NCsoft will be launching the soul fighter. Available to the Jin, Gon, and Yun races, this hybrid blends the martial styles of the force master and kung fu master to create a flexible class capable of dishing out pain at both range and in melee.Posted Jun 17, 2016 by Steven Messner

It's Both Brilliant & a Little Boring

Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor Martyr

Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor - Martyr is a mouthful for a name, but I'm inclined to forgive it after spending an hour goring enemies on my sword. The Warhammer universe is a brutal place, so a violent action RPG actually feels right at home. Neocore Games aren't new to the genre either, they're the studio behind the King Arthur and Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing RPGs, and Inquisitor feels like it's being made with that combined wisdom.Posted Jun 16, 2016 by Steven Messner

Running the Gauntlet - Our Preview of GW2's Next Raid Wing

Guild Wars 2

That's my totally canonical explanation for the preview encounter I ran last week, part of the Stronghold of the Faithful raid wing that goes live today for Guild Wars 2. Unlike the previous boss battles I'd had the opportunity to check out, this was more of a “gauntlet”-style encounter that required the players to continuously push forward and face down an endless wave of enemies while trying to complete their objectives.Posted Jun 14, 2016 by Jason Winter

E3 2016 - Bethesda Press Conference Review

Last year at E3, Todd Howard stole the week by announcing Fallout 4. The game was not only announced, but the launch date was given and it was only months away. How did Bethesda follow up such a shocker last year with last night’s press conference? Quite well actually. Many of the announcements were already rumored and so surprises were minimum, but the east coast company continues to produce a solid group of games for fans and players of their brands.

Closed Beta 3 Thoughts

Riders of Icarus

W’ve been dabbling in the closed beta of Riders of Icarus since its first iteration. Each time, Nexon’s latest MMORPG has improved. But is Riders of Icarus (a port of the popular theme park MMO in Korea called Icarus Online) more than “Just Another Theme Park MMO”? Read on for our early impressions of WeMade Entertainment’s fantasy MMORPG.Posted Jun 6, 2016 by William Murphy

A Look at Nonstop Knight

Nonstop Knights

Mobile games are always a tricky business. Some do amazingly well and yield millions, other games with great ideas simply fall away. I always found that finding a really good Mobile RPG is even harder. Nonstop Knight is a mobile RPG from the team at Flaregames that seeks to blend the popularity of "clicker" games with traditional Action RPG aesthetics and gameplay.Posted Jun 2, 2016 by Garrett Fuller
