  • The Top 5 Most Disappointing MMOs of 2015…So Far

    A couple weeks ago I wrote about some of the best MMOs we've had in 2015 so far. That list included stuff like new releases, games that saw big improvements, and some of the most promising ones to keep your eye on for the next half of 2015. This list, on the other hand, is going to focus on the exact opposite.

  • The Review Continues with Fresh Eyes

    You may be wondering where my (Bill Murphy’s) review is for Pathfinder Online. As I mentioned a while ago in a comment, I just can’t bring myself to play the game anymore, and I don’t feel I’ve given it enough time to really put a score on it. So, like a boss, I’m torturing our own Steven Messner with the task of going in with fresh eyes to see how he feels about the game. Read on for his own first impressions and more of my reasoning behind switching writers.

  • Early Access Review in Progress #3

    I think next week, yes in the midst of E3, I’ll finally put a wrap on this project and assign a score to Pathfinder Online as it stands now. But let me start this week by saying that fresh of The Witcher 3 and another Early Access game known as ARK: Survival Evolved makes Pathfinder feel even less finished. PFO can be enjoyable, it can… but the more I play it the less I can recommend investing your own money in the River Kingdoms for now.

  • Review in Progress #2: Misguided Player Agency

    A couple weeks back, we began our review in progress for Pathfinder Online, since it’s both a.) in early access and b.) not wiping progress anymore. The review will be going on hiatus for a couple of weeks while I review The Witcher 3, but nevertheless this week I have some additional thoughts as I make my way through Goblinworks’ sandbox MMORPG.

  • Early Enrollment Review in Progress

    We didn’t think we’d be reviewing Pathfinder Online anytime soon… until we discovered the game is both a.) taking money and b.) done wiping progress. As mentioned many times here, that’s all we need to consider a game ready to be reviewed. If a studio is confident enough in a product to do both of those things, then we’re confident that it deserves a score and review. Read on for the beginning of our Pathfinder Online adventures.

  • Early Access First Look

    In last week’s column I discussed the games that I look forward to the most in 2015. I caught some heat from readers over the lack of MMORPGs on the list. At the beginning of 2014 if I had to project what I would look forward to the most in 2015 Shroud of the Avatar and Pathfinder Online would have both been on that list. So what changed? This week I’m checking in on the development of Pathfinder Online and I’ll talk about why it missed my list of most anticipated for 2015.

  • Welcome to Alpha

    I have not kept it a secret that Pathfinder Online, in development by Goblinworks, is a MMORPG that I am truly looking forward to. Over the past two weeks Pathfinder has hit a couple major milestones in its development process and in this week’s column we will take a look at two of them.

  • MMO Marketing - Why the Community is More Important than Ever

    Last week, Goblinworks’ Ryan Dancey released plans for the upcoming Pathfinder Online alpha test. Given the game’s debt to its Kickstarter backers, involving the community isn’t a surprise, but the degree of transparent design and the alpha’s lack of an NDA shows both an openness to feedback and suggestion and confidence in the project. It’s also a really great example of the greater influence of community input on MMO design and marketing.

  • Crowdfund Round-up

    I’m sure a lot of you right now are enjoying the release of WildStar, for those that aren’t I hope you are enjoying your game of choice. Me? I’m still tinkering in the Elder Scrolls Online and playing WildStar but that’s not what this week’s column is about. Over the past few months I’ve had a couple of columns focusing on crowdfunding and I’d like to check in some of the games that are currently in development or actively seeking funding.

  • Should Players Crowdfund MMOs?

    Welcome back to another edition of Player Versus Player, our weekly delve into the world of MMO debate. With the rise of Kickstarter and crowdfunding, we have witnessed the birth of a new generation of game funding. We have seen the highs of Pathfinder and the continued impressiveness of Star Citizen. But we have also seen promising titles like Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen fall by the wayside and move to their own websites. We have to ask: is crowdfunding all it’s cracked up to be?
