Do Graphics Matter To You In An MMORPG?

MMORPGs, especially with their origins in text-based MUD games, aren't always associated with the bleeding edge of graphical fidelity when talking about the greater games industry. Yet in recent years, realistic graphics have been more and more at the forefront. But Bradford wonders: to the average MMORPG fan, how important are those graphics?

1More ColorBuds 2 Review

A few years ago, finding a pair of true wireless earbuds under $100 was unheard of. With the ColorBuds 2, 1More is not only coming in well under that $100 threshold, but they are doing it with style. The only real question to ask is, does this refresh of last year's ColorBuds keep up with the Joneses in the ever-growing value-priced earbud market?

The RPG Files: Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Review

With Pathfinder: Kingmaker, developer Owlcat Games gave us our first taste of a cRPG based on the Pathfinder role-playing system. The isometric RPG was a huge hit even before it launched, with over 18,000 backers pledging almost one million dollars on the Kickstarter project. With their standalone follow-up, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, Owlcat Games isn't taking the easy path by continuing the original story of Kingmaker.So how does it stack up?

Not So MMO: Gamedec Review

Imagine a future where game developers make house calls, no different than when you call a plumber to your home to check the pipes. These devs assess, diagnose, and fix problems with gaming chairs where people lay back, throw on a virtual reality headset, and transport to an entirely new plane of existence. This is the basic premise of Gamedec, a futuristic mystery novel infused with RPG elements that eschews combat for fact-gathering and puzzle solving. Mixing the world aesthetic of The Ascent

Not So MMO: Life Is Strange: True Colors Review

Life is Strange's premise as a franchise is simple: a drama reflecting the real world, with the caveat of a protagonist having some type of "superpowers." Perhaps it's a "curse," if you choose to describe it through the lips of Alex Chen, the protagonist of True Colors. So how does the latest installment stack up? Here is our review.

Naraka Bladepoint Review

Naraka: Bladepoint takes on the task of iterating on the battle royale formula in a way that is mostly interesting. However, does it do enough to stand out from the crowded genre?


7.5

Strategy games have come a long way, and Amplitude aims to push it further with Humankind, their latest 4X offering. But how does it stack up and does it do anything meaningful to help push the 4X genre along?


8.0
Aliens: Fireteam Elite Review

The Alien franchise is full of hits and misses. The first two movies of the franchise? Hits. The third? Miss. The prequels and sequels since then have also been a mixed bag. And the video games based on the franchise follow suit. Aliens: Colonial Marines was some hot garbage, but that was followed up by Alien: Isolation which is considered one of the best games in the franchise. But how does Aliens: Fireteam Elite hold up?


7.0
