Does Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Fill the Marvel Heroes Void?

General - Columns

Now that the game has been out for a couple of days, I’m not so sure. It’s a great looking game (even if the frame rate isn’t so hot). Team Ninja did an excellent job bringing an amazing roster to life. Unfortunately, I feel like the gameplay is a bit of a regression, even for its admittedly simple predecessors.

A Weekend of Gaming

General - Columns

It’s a holiday weekend here in the States and while I’ll be busy partaking in typical holiday festivities, I’ve also got plans to set aside some time for gaming. This is what I’ll be playing. Share your own holiday weekend (or just weekend) gaming plans with us in the comments below!Posted Jul 4, 2019 by Michael Bitton

Mike’s Best of E3 2019

General - Columns

Another year, another E3. This time the show was a bit smaller than we’re used to, with companies like Sony opting to skip altogether. Thankfully, the folks at Nintendo, Square Enix and Microsoft impressed enough to make for a decent overall showing. These are my favorite developments of E3 2019.Posted Jun 13, 2019 by Michael Bitton

Mike’s Most Anticipated Games of 2019

General - Columns

With 2018 now behind us, it’s time to look towards the year ahead. Fortunately for us, 2019 is shaping up to be another banner year in gaming and there are even some interesting things to look forward to in the world of MMOs. I recently shared a list of my favorite games of 2018, so let’s kick off the New Year with a list of what I’m looking forward to most this year.Posted Jan 3, 2019 by Michael Bitton

Mike's Best Games of 2018

General - Columns

2018 has been an absolutely insane year for gaming, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to play as much as I would have liked for variety of reasons, but I did play some things. These were my favorite games of 2018, listed in no particular order.Posted Dec 27, 2018 by Michael Bitton

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

Ant-Man and the Wasp Take Over Marvel Strike Force

General - Columns

Another new movie, another new tie-in. I know that sounds like I’m unexcited, but I’m pretty much always excited for new MSF content. Truth be told, I don’t particularly care about Ant-Man or the Wasp as characters (though the Ant-Man movie was enjoyable and I look forward to the sequel), but their kits sound absolutely terrifying so I’ll be collecting both for sure.Posted Jun 28, 2018 by Michael Bitton

Slay the Spire is a Time Vampire

General - Columns

I love card games and I love roguelikes (most of them, anyway), so when I learned indie dev Mega Crit Games was combining the two, my curiosity was piqued, to say the least. Truthfully, I’ve been disappointed with a lot of roguelikes over the years; FTL spoiled me too much. But Slay the Spire’s combination of FTL-style discovery, deck building, and turn-based combat checks all the right boxes for me and so far it’s been a bit of a time vampire.

CES 2018 Thoughts

General - Columns

I don’t typically write about technology here at MMORPG.com, but I do like to follow it. CES (Consumer Electronics Show) is the E3 of the technology world and I look forward to it each year. There’s usually a lot of junk at CES, but the cool stuff tends to set the stage for what we can expect in technology for the year and offer some exciting hints for the future.

What We Would Like to See from Anthem

General - Columns

EA’s looking to throw its hat into the ring this year with its own loot shooter called Anthem. The title is being developed by BioWare and looks to be an all hands on deck effort by the studio with EA vice president Patrick Söderlund describing the project as “the start of maybe a 10-year journey.” Can EA and BioWare pull it off with Anthem? I’ve got a couple of ideas for how I think the game can position itself to succeed. Posted Jan 4, 2018 by Michael Bitton

General - Columns

It’s that time of the year again. 2017 was a crazy year for gaming, but 2018 is shaping up to be pretty awesome as well. This week, I’m sharing my list of my most anticipated games of 2018. Share yours with us in the comments!Posted Dec 28, 2017 by Michael Bitton

Patch 1.8 is the Best The Division’s Ever Been

The Division - Columns

Forget Destiny 2, there’s a new (old?) loot shooter king in town and it’s Tom Clancy’s The Division. It’s been a slow burn and a tumultuous journey for The Division, but Ubisoft seems to have finally been able to realize the game’s potential with the game’s latest (and massive) free update, patch 1.8.Posted Dec 14, 2017 by Michael Bitton

Star Wars Battlefront II or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and the Love the Loot Box

General - Columns

Much digital ink has been spilled over the past week on the alarming state of loot boxes in general, but more specifically, for games like Star Wars: Battlefront II, for which EA has locked the entirety of the game’s progression behind the much-maligned feature. But are things as bad as they would appear? Not necessarily.Posted Oct 12, 2017 by Michael Bitton

Borderlands 3 Needs to be a Shared World Shooter

General - Columns

MMO-lite, loot shooter, shared-world shooter, I don’t really care what you want to label it, but Borderlands 3 needs to follow in the footsteps of games like Destiny and The Division. I spent most of my time in both imagining how much better the whole thing would be if the game I was playing was actually a Borderlands title. Posted Sep 7, 2017 by Michael Bitton

Co-Op in Story Driven RPGs

General - Columns

I’ve actually held up SWTOR’s story co-op as one of its best features when writing about the game over the years, but for as much as I love playing things co-op, I’m not too sure about the idea when it comes to story driven “singleplayer” RPGs. Posted Aug 24, 2017 by Michael Bitton

What's Your Escape Game?

General - Columns

The Civilization series has often been my escape game of choice. It shouldn’t be too hard to imagine why a game series known for its addictiveness (just. one. more. turn.) would be a great candidate to escape into, but it really is where I go to when I need to just disconnect and burn some hours away.

Star Wars and the Modern MMO

Star Wars: The Old Republic - Columns

I often think about how I’d love to play SWTOR – only re-imagined with the new landscape of MMOs in mind. But things like action combat or even a smaller set of active abilities probably aren’t going to ever happen for SWTOR, so where does that leave things for the future of Star Wars and online games?

Love MMO Arenas? You Need To Be Playing Battlerite

General - Columns

Battlerite, a new team arena brawler by Stunlock Studios, entered Early Access last week and quickly shot up the Steam top sellers list. The game is basically a remake of Bloodline Champions, a game the team developed under publisher Funcom. Bloodline Champions found some niche success, but never quite blew up. This time around, self-published, along with a new art style and some design tweaks, Stunlock Studios hopes to truly break through. Posted Sep 28, 2016 by Michael Bitton

Why I’m Looking Forward to The Elder Scrolls Legends

General - Columns

Is it possible that Hearthstone gave way to green lighting a game like Elder Scrolls Legends? Sure. But that doesn’t mean Blizzard has a monopoly on studios creating card games based on their intellectual properties. Posted Jul 1, 2016 by Michael Bitton

Battleborn Beta Weekend Impressions

General - Columns

While I’m a huge fan of what Gearbox has done over the years, particularly with the Borderlands series, the muddled messaging on Battleborn had me sort of write off the game up until now. Thankfully, I finally had a chance to sample Battleborn this past weekend and figure things out for myself. Posted Apr 19, 2016 by Michael Bitton
