Mirror, Mirror

Wizard101

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's been wanting a makeover most of all? While I'm happy with my wizard's current features, most Wizard101 players welcomed the new Magic Mirror Shop that was included in the 2018 summer update. The shop, located in the Wizard City Shopping District, allows customers to change their hair, hair color, face, eye color, and skin tone.Posted Jul 11, 2018 by Vanessa Mythdust

ArenaNet and the Wisdom of Not Doing Anything

Guild Wars 2

ArenaNet should be having a good time. The latest update to the Path of Fire expansion came out, it was universally acclaimed by media and players. They’ve scored a win, and regained momentum. But then… well, then an employee spoke out on Twitter. And then the President made an example of her, and another employee. And now ArenaNet is in the middle of a PR blunder of its own creation.Posted Jul 10, 2018 by William Murphy

Get Ready for the Next Battle: Nintendo Switch vs. PC

General

I am the proud owner of a Nintendo Switch, and can say without hesitation that it’s terrific! That said, I’m not ready to make the claim that it’s a better overall platform than the PC for gamers. With an unparalleled user base, not to mention platform longevity, the PC has been and always will be KING.Posted Jul 5, 2018

Is Crowdfunding Bad?

General

As more crowdfunded games reach launch, it’s a good time to take a look at the process of getting from funded to finished. When it surged in popularity, we didn’t know if crowdfunding was a good idea or not. Now that the process has been tested a few times, we have more information available on which to base an informed opinion.Posted Jul 5, 2018 by Red Thomas

H1Z1 PS4 Open Beta Review

H1Z1

After a long alpha and beta, and after separating from the "Just Survive" part of the game, Daybreak's H1Z1 is finally launched on the PS4. At least, it's in "Open Beta". Here are our thoughts after a few weeks with the title.Posted Jun 5, 2018 by Christopher Bowman

Gunheart - A Unique but Rough Co-Op Shooter

General

Gunheart is a 3-player co-op game that is coming out today across several VR platforms, as well as for desktop PCs via Steam. Gunheart is developed by Drifter Entertainment, a team that sports an impressive pedigree of experience ranging from Gears of War to Doom and Quake and that experience shows. It's a sometimes rough shooter that has potential for those looking for a small-group cooperative experience.Posted Jun 4, 2018 by Suzie Ford

Ready Player One Review - It Takes Us Back to Reality

General

It is not unreasonable to say that Stephen Spielberg is unparalleled in his craft. His work stands as a monument to everything great about film, building worlds where we can find a momentary escape from the drudgery of everyday existence. It seems fitting that a man that brought strangers from other worlds to our screens, brought giants of fact and fantasy to life, and took us on fantastic voyages should realize a tale that pays homage to all of these.Posted Mar 29, 2018 by Ed Orr

The Reality of Future Games

General

This week at GDC we saw some of the technology that will be driving our virtual worlds in the future. The techniques on cutting edge graphics and high end hardware are so distinct, we’ll be stepping into the most realistic settings we have ever faced. EPIC Games and Nvidia both gave presentation that turned some heads in where gaming will be no more than a decade from now. Posted Mar 22, 2018 by Garrett Fuller

Can A:IR and Bless Revitalize the AAA MMORPG?

General

It seems like a long shot, since traditionally Eastern MMORPGs are played but niche here in the states. But I think there’s good reason to believe that on the heels of successful games like Black Desert Online, Ascent: Infinite Realm and Bless Online could make publishers think twice about investing in AAA MMORPGs. Of course, this is purely me spitballing on a slow news Friday, so let’s play shall we?Posted Feb 9, 2018 by William Murphy

Lost Sphear - Fighting in the Moonlight

General

I am Setsuna was released roughly 18 months after the formation of Tokyo RPG Factory. The game was good but it lacked some of the things that made the Chrono Series and early Final Fantasy games excellent. Hot from the Factory less than 2 years after I am Setsuna’s release Lost Sphear looks to evolve what Setsuna started. This is our Lost Sphear review for the Nintendo Switch.Posted Jan 31, 2018 by Robert Lashley

The End of the Republic? SWTOR Analysis

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Star Wars: The Old Republic was a massive MMORPG launch back in 2011. The game is often called one of the last great MMOs to come out of that era. It was steeped in Bioware storytelling with huge plotlines to follow. Factions between the Sith and the Republic, along with Light and Dark side Force choices made for your character. Over time, SWTOR continued to see a lot of success. However, rumors circulate that Bioware Austin may be moving on to new projects. Is it time for the republic to end?

Is 2018 the Year of the Dragoon?

Final Fantasy XIV

I’ve had a long, complicated relationship with Dragoon. The first character I made in FFXIV — during the 1.0 beta, in fact — was a lancer. Years later, when I returned to the game, I made the same again. Yet for the longest time, I couldn’t really stick to it. I leveled lancer, and then it successor, Dragoon, to 60 when that was the level cap during the Heavensward era, but quickly gave up. Posted Jan 8, 2018 by Michael O’Connell-Davidson

Who Are You Rooting For in the Premiere Overwatch Season?

Overwatch

As we near the launch of Overwatch Leagues’ inaugural season, we’re looking at the League as it stands, its teams, and hedging our bets on who’ll dominate, and who will look like my beloved/loathed Cleveland Browns. Posted Dec 21, 2017 by William Murphy

Warframe: Plains of Eidolon Review

Warframe

Plains of Eidolon is a massive redirection in thinking for Digital Extremes that pushed the studio into a very scary direction for the game. I applaud them for constantly asking the question, “What can we do to make our game better than it has ever been?” Seriously, just keep asking that question and making it happen.Posted Oct 27, 2017 by Aaron Couture

Omega Prestige: A Return to Sanity

Marvel Heroes Omega

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a piece highlighting the terrible implementation of Omega Prestige in Marvel Heroes. Prestige, a system originally designed as a fun activity meant for personal achievement or showing off dedication, was now tied to endgame progression, forcing players to participate if they wanted to get the most out of their heroes.

Omega Prestige: Prestige Should Be Fun, Not Mandatory

Marvel Heroes Omega

For a while now, Marvel Heroes players could optionally Prestige (re-level) their heroes up to six times, each time earning its own special color nameplate as a reward. Cosmic, the final tier of Prestige, required something like 25X the normal experience to level from 1-60, but your name would show up in yellow, the color of Cosmic rarity items in Marvel Heroes. It was something to do for fun or to show off your dedication to a particular hero to other players. Posted Oct 5, 2017 by Michael Bitton

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds vs Fortnite Battle Royale

General

Unless you are like me and have been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard that Epic Game’s released a free to play Battle Royal game using Fortnite as a base. It’s ruffled some feathers, to say the least, and leave those of us looking to dive into the genre scratching our heads on which game to start with. Do you get PUBG at it’s $30 price tag or grab Fortnite’s free to play Battle Royale mode?Posted Oct 2, 2017 by Robert Baddeley

Steam Ratings, Reviews, and The Bombing – Steam’s Histogram Puts All the Work Back on the User

General

This last Tuesday Valve employee Alden Kroll published a blog article addressing the issue of review bombing and their response to the problem. The article itself is very well written with an honest and transparent tone. If you haven't read it yet you should. You can find a link to the blog post from the MMORPG news article here.Posted Sep 25, 2017 by Randy Liden

Mixed Feelings on Battle Royale

Fortnite

Fortnite is one of those games where you can clearly see its potential for greatness, but for reasons we’ll likely never know, it hasn’t been able to really find its footing in development. The core gameplay is really fun, but the game struggles from identity issues, resulting in a muddled overall experience. Unfortunately, the latest announcement from Epic Games truly crystalizes that lack of focus.Posted Sep 14, 2017 by Michael Bitton

The Hand Grenade and the Hiding Place

General

This is family meeting time. No, you’re not in trouble - we all are. I’m not going to yell at you, but this going to be like eating your green beans: you may not like it, but it’s good for you and might make you a wee bit gassy.Posted Aug 31, 2017 by Damien Gula
