With few exceptions, E3 2021 was a major letdown. This shouldn't really come as a surprise, what with COVID complicating development for games across the industry. It hasn't been an easy year for anyone, so I truthfully wasn't expecting much more than what we got. That said, there were still a couple of notable games for me, so let's dive in.
Bradford loves MMORPGs. However, there are occassions where the "massively multiplayer" can get in the way of the RPG aspects of a game, such as a recent experience in The Elder Scrolls Online.
Niklas is back with another Dark Age of Camelot column, this time focusing on the realm versus realm combat in the MMORPG.
After a much shorter pre-patch period than Robin expected, the portal has been opened. Robin is in Outland in World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Classic. Check out her thoughts in our first review-in-progress.
If you could play game director for your favorite MMO, whether it be live or sunset at this point, what would you change and why?
Robin was amazed when Blizzard announced that not only would pre-patch for The Burning Crusade Classic start on May 18th, but that it would only last two weeks. She takes a look at TBCC ahead of its June 1st launch.
While the video and thread didn't outright state that this was the end of development for Civilization VI, the tone of it all suggested a sense of finality. Whether that ends up being true or not, these are some of the things I'd like to see in the next installment of the long running 4X series.
As Bradford looked around the MMO landscape this month, multiple alpha and betas dot the weeks. Zenith, Swords of Legends Online, Elyon, Bless Unleashed PC, Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis - There is a lot on the horizon. However, Bradford wonders: is anyone really excited for the new games expected this year?
Bradford recently watched Upload on Amazon, as well as perused Reddit and was thinking: If he died, what MMORPG world would he love to wake up reincarnated in, and why?
It's a pretty weird and unsettling time in this world of ours right now. With many of us hunkering down at home, things can get downright boring at times. Fortunately, if you're someone who enjoys videogames, you likely have a backlog of games to play through or even some new titles to play in the coming days and weeks.
