Not So MMO

In this bi-weekly column we tally up the news from around the almost-MMO-verse and offer our thoughts on the ins and outs of the titles that are big, but maybe not quite "Massive".

Not So MMO: Chivalry 2 Review

Chivalry 2 is a game of chaos. But is there more than that? Brian took the medieval battle game for a spin in our review.

Days Gone PC Review - Not So MMO

t's been a little over two years since the last time I took Deacon St. John for a joyride in the freaker filled mountains of a post Zombie-apocalyptic Oregon. Originally released on the PlayStation 4 in 2019, Days Gone returns for a second ride by becoming the second first party PlayStation exclusive released for PC. How does the experience hold up?

Not So MMO: Hood: Outlaws & Legends Review

Hood Outlaws & Legends can be a fun game. Can be is the operative phrase here, as the "fun factor" is heavily dependent on a number of variables, most important being simply who you are playing with. A fantastic concept on paper, Hood stumbles a bit with its execution. Couple this with a subpar PC port and Hood feels just a little half baked in the end.

Not So MMO: Total War: Rome Remastered Review

Rome: Total War is one of Bradford's favorite Total War games of all time, so jumping back in with its remastered version brought back a lot of memories. However, how does the experience, built originally in 2004 hold up here in 2021, even with the new improvements brough by Feral? Surprisingly well, actually.

Not So MMO: Resident Evil Village Review

Resident Evil Village is a fun reminder of what Resident Evil used to be. Fighting off Lycans and exploring the Village captivated me in a way that I haven't felt in Resident Evil for a long time.


Not So MMO: Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous Preview Impressions

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is a robust game. Jason took to the CRPG, whose beta comprises of about 60 hours worth of content, for a spin. Here are his thoughts.

Not So MMO: Evil Genius Hands-On Impressions

Jason went hands-on with the upcoming Evil Genius 2: World Domination, finding out that running your own evil empire still requires some more grunt work than anticipated.

Not So MMO: Hitman 3 Review

Hitman 3 caps off the World of Assassination Trilogy that began with 2016's episodic treatment of the legendary series. Is this send off worth your time in the end? Jason reviews Hitman 3, taking Agent 47, AKA a Human Swiss Army Knife, out for a spin.

Not So MMO: Raji: An Ancient Epic Review

Raji: An Ancient Epic is a beautiful game with a unique art style, as well as a story not often explored in games. But how does that story hold up all the way through the short, yet beautiful adventure?

Not So MMO: Hyrule Warrios: Age of Calamity Review

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity has left our reviewer, Jason, conflicted. On one hand it's one of the most efficient uses of Musou formula, but he can't help be feel it could have stuck its landing better. Here's our review of the latest offering from Nintendo.

Last week Mitch gave an overview of Godfall and his thoughts thus far. Now he's ready to pass his final verdict of the PS5/EGS title that ushers in next-gen.
