Nightmare Tide's Underwater Wonders

Rift

For the last three years, the heroes of Telara have done their best to staunch a seemingly-endless flow of planes-spawned elementals. Perhaps though, it's time to stop the flow at its source? Trion Worlds seems to agree, and this week they invited us to explore a world beyond Telara—the beautiful, treacherous, and surprising Plane of Water. Posted Aug 7, 2014 by Neilie Johnson

Grinding Gear Games' Path of Exile is set to receive its second major expansion on August 20th, and we caught up with CEO Chris Wilson to reveal two of Forsaken Masters' big new features: the Witch Catarina, Master of the Dead and the Standard Challenge League coming with the expansion: The Rampage League. Read on for all the details.Posted Aug 7, 2014 by William Murphy

Trion Worlds' Community Day

ArcheAge

For a while I've been meaning to get a peek at ArcheAge, but somehow other things keep getting in the way. Fortunately, I was invited to Trion Worlds' Redwood Shores office for a combination media/community day. Some might say experiencing a game's high level content first is a bit like reading a book back to front. Still, having spent hours since then playing the beta version from the beginning, I'll admit I'm glad I did it that way. Posted Aug 5, 2014 by Neilie Johnson

The Rabbit Hole Goes Deep

Wasteland 2

Wasteland 2 is all about the gray areas. And that’s how players like it. I recently had the chance to get a preview of the game from inXile’s Brian Fargo, and chatted about consequences, community, and immersion in the upcoming party-based RPG. Posted Aug 5, 2014 by Christina Gonzalez

Halls of Power Part One Preview

DC Universe Online

SOE is keeping the good times rolling for DC Universe Online fans with the announcement of DLC 11: Halls of Power Part One. We recently had a chance to sit in on a livestream tour of the new content presented by DCUO creative director Jens Andersen and senior community manager Ted “Mepps” Stone. If you’re a fan of base building and group content, you’ll definitely want to read on for the details!Posted Jul 23, 2014 by Michael Bitton

Massive World Building With UemeU

UemeU

Sandbox games are popular among the role-playing set as evidenced by phenomena like Second Life and enjoy mass market appeal as millions of Minecraft players will attest. Fledgling developer Omnigon Games hopes to tap into that creative energy with upcoming sandboxer, UemeU. From what the team showed last week, it's clearly too soon to tell how well UemeU's avatar customization and community tools will function but otherwise, the project definitely shows promise.

Il-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad

MMOs are among the most intimidating genres for entry-level gamers, second only perhaps, to flight simulators. Mash the two concepts together and you've got one heckuva scary-sounding game—well, not really, but that's the impression many people have—one the fanatic flyboys at 1C Game Studios are hoping to dispel with their new-player-focused flight sim, Il-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad.

ZMR: Addictive, Dynamic Action

Zombies, Monsters, Robots

Who doesn’t love a game that has Zombies Monsters or Robots? While I am generally not a multiplayer third person shooter player, the back story Yingpei Games, formerly known as Epic Games China tells about the Earth being assaulted by extra-dimensional creature that comes through the portal gates which Earth invented is an intriguing one. These gates opened the way and has turned the Earth into battle ground where you have to fight pretty much anything you can imagine. Posted Jul 16, 2014 by Franklin Rinaldi

Meet Motiga's Gigantic - A Fusion of Casual and Hardcore

Gigantic

At long last, the Motiga team is ready to let us in on what's been percolating in its Pacific Northwest pressure-cooker, and last week I was one of the lucky few who got to see it. Although I'm not one to indulge in hyperbole, it's no exaggeration to say this game is going to be Gigantic. Posted Jul 15, 2014 by Neilie Johnson

Just How Much Has Changed for Launch? A Lot.

Firefall

If your first reaction to reading the title of this article was, “Wait, Firefall hasn’t been released yet?” I don’t think anyone would blame you. Originally announced way back in 2010, this MMO shooter has been struggling for the past few years to finally grasp hold of its original vision. From the overly convoluted original progression system, to a hampered PvP mode, nearly all facets of the game have undergone extreme renovations in the past couple years.Posted Jul 14, 2014 by David Jagneaux

More 'Hack' Than Slash

Swordsman

Having given Age of Wushu and similar departures a try here and there, I felt that Swordsman Online could be the breath of fresh air I needed to cleanse my palate for a while of grittier, more frustrating affairs. And while it's certainly not perfect, completely polished, or even difficult (at least as far as the lower levels go so far) it's an interesting alternative to succumbing to games with subscription fees or steep entry costs.

First Impressions - Seems We've Been Here Before

Black Gold Online

Steampunk has been an obsession of gamers for a long time, but it’s criminally underrepresented in most MMORPGs. Snail Games aimed to partially alleviate that concern by smashing both steampunk and fantasy flavors together into one massive and varied free-to-play MMORPG called Black Gold Online. BGO has a lot in common with one of its developers other titles, Age of Wushu, both in terms of visuals, mechanics, and underlying systems. Posted Jul 8, 2014 by David Jagneaux

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
