Hands On with Torchlight Frontiers - Gamescom 2018

Torchlight Frontiers - Previews

Over at Gamescom 2018, I met up with Echtra’s Max Schafer, leader of the team on Frontiers and veteran of the Torchlight and Diablo franchise. While I got to try out the steampunk-inspired golem for myself, I also had to interview Schaefer on the project. You can read some of the highlights in our previous report, but he also had a cavern full of insight to share about developing the class, the content, and the combat for this completely new experience.Posted Aug 29, 2018 by Gareth Harmer

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate Switch Review: The Port We Deserve

General - Columns

You take a hit and fly across the ground, sliding to a stop as you try to regain your composure. Pulling an arrow from the quiver, you take aim, the arrow is loosed and you hit the charging beast square in the eye socket. The giant beast goes down with a thud, and it’s still warm corpse is laying there waiting for you to harvest it. This is our review of Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate on Nintendo Switch.Posted Aug 28, 2018 by Christopher Bowman

Strange Brigade Review - Spiffy, Tricky & Addictive, Old Chap!

General - Columns

Written like an old fashioned pulp-fiction matinee, feeling every bit an Indiana Jones movie with visual immersion as detailed as an AAA MMORPG - Rebellion development team’s newest title Strange Brigade launches this week with rip-roaring stories, animation, puzzles and gunfire all in the picturesque albeit zombie-ridden setting of 1930’s Egypt. How did this all come to be, what is a strange brigade and why are they here? Posted Aug 27, 2018 by Kelley Kiwi

Going Face-to-Face with the Community

Guild Wars 2 - Columns

ArenaNet’s latest expansion is not long out the door and with no sign of us jumping into a new expansion pack quite yet, they didn’t bring a floor presence to Gamescom 2018. What they did do, however, was continue a process they have been slowly chasing for the last year, of attending in a way that allows fans to come together. From the Griffon that landed outside SDCC to last night’s community party, these events are incredibly important.Posted Aug 25, 2018 by Ed Orr

Five Things We Wish We’d Seen at Gamescom

General - Columns

Gamescom is not quite over yet. It continues all weekend long in a fantastic festival of fun. However, many of the big announcements have been made and we continue to find ourselves wanting. If the game landscape is any indicator, it is that Gamescom did not pack its normal huge punch of information this year. That was reserved for E3. Now, the good news is, we still have a lot to look forward to this fall. Here are some of the things we wish we saw come out of Gamescom. Posted Aug 24, 2018 by Garrett Fuller

Mike’s Top Picks of Gamescom 2018

General - Columns

This year felt a bit different for me. There were a ton of new trailers and some key developments, but nothing truly awe-inspiring (well, except one thing, but more on that later). In any case, Gamescom 2018 did still tick some key boxes for me and these are my highlights listed in no particular order.Posted Aug 23, 2018 by Michael Bitton

However, there are a few important things that players need to know before they pack up their traditional launcher.Posted Aug 22, 2018 by Vanessa Mythdust

Battle for Azeroth’s Progression Problem

World of Warcraft - Columns

Let me preface this: Battle for Azeroth may very well be the pinnacle of story and zone design in World of Warcraft’s 14-year history. I’ve loved almost every bit of questing and dungeon content, and I’m actually reading the quests for the first time in years. But there’s a big glaring issue that’s increasingly clear the more I play – it never feels like your character is growing or making progress in this expansion.Posted Aug 22, 2018 by William Murphy
