Lord of the Rings Online : The Beornings and Central Gondor Are Coming

Posted Oct 30, 2014 by Suzie Ford

Recently, we were invited by Turbine to check out Lord of the Rings Online's Update 15.  In it, we were presented with a first look at the Beorning class and also the new big battle that centered around the off-camera lore story of the retaking of Pelargir, an important Gondorian port that Aragorn and the Grey Company needed to liberate in order to prevent a devastating attack upon Minas Tirith.  Backed by the summoned army of the dead, the former Oathbreakers from the Stone of Erech, the would-be king of Gondor and Arnor needs the players' help in achieving his goals, else darkness will consume Middle-Earth.

Rift : Nightmare Tide Review in Progress #1

Posted Oct 30, 2014 by Suzie Ford

For the past two years, RIFT has been the one MMO that is always on my playlist. Even if I find myself playing other games when they hit the market, I always end up getting sucked back into Telara. The reasons vary. Perhaps there is a special event going on. Perhaps I was just getting bored and wanted to see some familiar faces. But this time around, it was RIFT’s newest expansion that lured me in: Nightmare Tide. But is this new addition to the game just a small puddle that gets in the way? Or is it a whirlpool that will suck players in with its powerful current?  Let’s dive in and find out!

World of Warcraft : Blizzcon 2014: Rumors and Speculation

Posted Oct 29, 2014 by Suzie Ford

What has me wondering, however, is what those massive gaps in the Blizzcon schedule mean. These are the times and places that are usually reserved for THE BIG THING™ that Blizzard is most keenly focused on in any given year. A cursory look shows that the Keynote will take place on Friday morning, ending at 11:45 a.m. Then nothing, not a single thing sits on the schedule until after 2:00 p.m. This is not the Blizzcon of the past and it is prime gaming real estate.

WildStar : Free Server Transfers Available

Posted Oct 29, 2014 by Suzie Ford

Once the North American WildStar servers come online, players will be able to take advantage unlimited server transfers. Players will be able to transfer from PvE to PvP servers and vice versa. The decision to offer not only free, but unlimited transfers came as a direct result of player feedback.

We wanted to thank you for all of the feedback and insight you’ve been giving us on our recent megaserver change, as well as the health and status of the servers since then. It’s been great to see so many players coming together and enjoying the megaservers, arranging awesome PvP battles and player events, bolstering guild recruitment and open world event participation.

We’ve been listening to your feedback and understand there have been some concerns for the health of PvP servers following the PvP to PvE transfers we enabled for a short time after the megaserver deployment.

When we looked at our data, the PvP Realms (mainly Luminai for our EU players) seemed healthy, but we understand this wasn’t what players were seeing or feeling in-game. As such, we sat down and discussed how to ensure all the megaserver realms would continue to be healthy and sustain an active and positive community.

Destiny : The Dark Below Launches on December 9th

Posted Oct 29, 2014 by William Murphy

Today Bungie announced the official details and launch date for Destiny's first expansion, The Dark Below. President Harold Ryan had this to say:

"Destiny was created as a living universe, which has allowed us to improve the experience post launch in real-time. It also gives us insight into the things players are looking for in new content. We've seen from feedback that people want new activities, gear and weapons, and of course the immensely popular Raid. The community helps shape our development decisions and that's really important to us."

Destiny Expansion I: The Dark Below will feature the following:

  • New weapons, armor, and gear to earn, including Legendary and Exotic items
  • Light Level cap raised to 32 and five additional Bounty slots added
  • New story quests and missions - after years hiding amongst the Hive shadows, a new character, Eris, has come forth bearing an ominous warning: The Hive seek to summon a god, Crota, to destroy the Earth. Find Eris in the Tower to take on special quests that include three new missions where you will increase your Light and earn new rewards
  • New cooperative Strike, The Will of Crota, pits you and your Fireteam against Omnigul as she works to expand the Hive army at the command of her master, Crota
  • Three new competitive multiplayer arenas
    • Pantheon - set deep within the Black Garden in an ancient Vex temple that features Vex-designed landscapes and tight corridors
    • Skyshock - an old interplanetary defense array that offers both vehicle and infantry engagements
    • The Cauldron - an abandoned Hive ritual site that offers close-quarter combat
  • New six-player Raid, Crota's End, set deep within the depths of the Hellmouth
  • PlayStation platforms will also get access to an exclusive cooperative Strike,The Undying Mind, and more (timed exclusive until at least Fall 2015)

Elder Scrolls Online : How to Rebound

Posted Oct 29, 2014 by Suzie Ford

A recent column on this site argued that the critical reception for Destiny wasn’t relevant since the game’s sales were high. Yet, developers want to foster a reputation for quality as well. So how does this all relate to The Elder Scrolls Online? ZeniMax, too, suffered from mixed critical feedback before ESO was released, and in the weeks after launch. Yet ZeniMax embraced the feedback of its community, and now, with a big update set for the live server, is at six months and thriving out there.
