FireFall: Review-in-Progress #1
Now that we've had some time to get down and dirty in Red 5's Firefall, it's time to start our Review in Progress series. We kick it off today with our first thoughts about the MMOFPS.

Now then... where to begin? Let me put it this way: Firefall's the kind of game that doesn't hold your hand, and it requires a good bit of self-experimentation. Red 5's crafted some tutorial videos, and there's a decent very basic introduction to the game and how it works after you create your character, but by and large you'll only get as much out of Firefall as you put into the game. For some, this will be a glorious callback to the days of MMOs' youth. For others this little facet will likely drive them away. But if you put forth the effort to research crafting, how the Battleframe progression works, how events and Chosen invasions affect the world, you'll likely be pleasantly surprised by what you find in this futuristic version of Brazil.

Guild Wars 2: ArenaNet's Master Plan for 2013
ArenaNet has set a terrific pace of development over the past few months. Now the time has come to reveal the "master plan" for the balance of the year.

Yesterday I had the chance to catch up with Guild Wars 2's Game Director Colin Johanson to talk about the metric buttload of an update he put out via the official Guild Wars 2 site today. In short, there is a whole lot of new stuff coming to Tyria before the end of 2013 and I'm fairly certain you'll have a hard time arguing with any of the additions. Unless of course you like free features and content... then I guess you'll hate this little article. Before we dive into the bits of Colin's blog that we talked about on our call, let me give you a handy-dandy bullet point list detailing the many new things coming to GW2 in the latter half of the year.

Check out the interview here.
