As we have all grown up with MMOs on this site, there is a rich history of character customization that we took for granted. However, over the past several years it seems like more games have gone the route of skins and character lists instead of giving players the chance to build their own look on screen. Until recently, now it seems like customization is coming back.
At E3 we got the chance to go through the full demo of Cyberpunk 2077. CD Projekt Red was kind enough to give us a release date and now the hype train will move forward in full force for the next 9 months. We have seen the bright lights and Keanu Reeves massive impact this year, however, the demo itself took a different turn, here is how it stacks up.
At E# last week we spoke with Swen Vincke the founder of Larian Studios. He was joined by D&D’s own Michael Mearls to talk about the incoming RPG bomb that is Baldur’s Gate 3. This title originally launched Bioware into the top RPG game studios status in the 1990s. Now here we are going into a new decade with a new generation of D&D fans and the third installment of the series is being built by a studio with a proven track record in the Divinity series. In truth, there could not be a better set up for this game, however, let’s see what the guys had to say at E3.
Unhappy with anything you are playing lately, want to bash some armored heads in? I cannot recommend Mordhau enough to fans of PvP in any MMO ever. Okay, that sounds extreme but it is true. There is a reason that this game has taken off quickly and became a huge hit as it continues to build on its hardcore fanbase. Let’s go through a few things about the game to explain why it is so much fun.
Vermintide has had a huge successful run among game fans. Both Warhammer and Left for Dead players love this title with its fast-paced action and brutal fight scenes. It harkens to the Warhammer of the Old World that many of us loved. New players continue to join the battle all the time and the team was happy to launch Winds of Magic. We spoke with Mats Andersson about the expansion and some of the plans for Vermintide in the future.
TERA has come full circle as a successful MMO with a fantastic seven-year run. Now as the game celebrates seven years we get some insight into the success and also the roadmap for the future. We spoke to Patrick ‘Atmorph’ Mathieu about everything TERA this week.
Everyone is talking about the end of Game of Thrones today. Many websites, especially game websites are covering it as their top story, if not top five stories. This marks a shift in journalism which has been going on in a while. When pop culture news shifts away from games to entertainment, things can get different for hardcore audiences. Are we in a short phase of entertainment out performing games on the pop culture stage?
Autumn Burchett is an inspiration. As part of the Magic The Gathering community, Autumn sets a fine example of a player, champion, and role model for many. Read about a rise to glory, hard work, and the type of change that gaming is bringing to the world.

Blizzard is capitalizing on the launch of Classic World of Warcraft this year as a way to bring players back into the subscription model for their favorite MMO. Classic WoW will build the world prior to the massive success of Burning Crusade. Many forget the early times, the struggles, and most of all the fun of attacking each other in PvP. Warcraft in its original form had a ton to offer MMOers, but will it hold up in today’s market?
Neverwinter recently grew with the Undermountain content expansion. Undermountain brings some huge changes to the game with classes being retooled and much more. We chatted with Lead Designer Thomas Foss about Undermountain and what it brings to the community.
Last week at Star Wars Celebration we got glimpses of how Galaxy’s Edge will quickly become the queue hell that it was meant to be for fans. People will line up for miles to have the Star Wars experience they had always dreamed or…Disney tells you to dream. What we are going to discuss today is just how close to a live MMO this park will be. First, bring your phone, that is your log in, second, well, let’s go through some of the features.
Torchlight has been a fan favorite around here for years. It was an RPG launched in 2009 and quickly became a success on PC. The scope of the world seemed endless, especially for steampunk fantasy fans. As the years moved forward, we were treated to Torchlight II which was an excellent follow up to the original RPG. It offered more classes and options and a more in-depth storyline. Now, almost ten years later we are looking at the launch of the original goal which was a Torchlight MMO.
