Our Conqueror's Blade Review - Attempting to Set a New Standard

Conquerer’s Blade is a free-to-play tactical Action MMO from developer Booming Games. This interesting array of genres promises a unique mix of player development, PVE story, epic siege combat, open world exploration and resource gathering and open world.

Dauntless Review - A Crossplay Gem

Dauntless has finally released May 21, 2019, and we got a chance to get our hands on it. After being in open beta since May 2018. Dauntless now joins the very few games that can cross-play across many consoles most notably PS4 and Xbox. With over 5 million players, it is fine to call Dauntless a success. With that said, let us talk about our time slaying these behemoths. This is our Dauntless review.

Mordhau Review - More Than A Flesh Wound

The Division 2 Official Review

The Division 2 is the game The Division should have been. After such a disappointing streak of releases in this genre, it's refreshing that finally, someone has gotten it right. The Division 2 is fun now, not in six months, and if you're not playing it yet, it's time to get activated. This is our review of The Division 2.

Apex Legends Review - It's Taken the World by Storm

The alarm has sounded, the light has changed from red to green and you are standing on the drop ramp. Your squad gets the “jump!” command and you go all out with rocket boosters forcing you to the ground more quickly than a freefall. You touch down on the landing platform and begin to scour for weapons, all the while enemy squads are doing the same. This is our review for Apex Legends.

Anthem Review: Here We Go Again

With so many disastrous launches for looter shooters (and other live service games) over the past few years, surely Anthem would learn from the mistakes of its peers and not subject players excited for the game to yet another redemption arc. Right?

Warlords Awakening Review – Worth Waking For?

the resurrection of ELOA has come, branded under a new publisher and brandished with a new name, Warlords: Awakening has risen from the digital grave to christen a host of new western players with a Korean MMOARPG that woefully underperformed not but two years prior.

Elsword the 2D MMO with Real Depth

It’s easy to think at first Elsword is just a button mashing pseudo-mmo but there’s a lot of depth to the game once you get past the early game experience. They do a great job of laying everything out simply and then layering the complexity on top of it, so you learn everything in a way that makes sense and as a result it doesn’t seem all that complex. However, if you were to skip to the end game most people would quickly be in way over their heads.

Bless Online Launch Review

From my first Early Access preview to my pre-launch Early Access Review, a lot has changed. Has Neowiz finally addressed the concerns players had leading up to their official launch, or is their new Free to Play conversion on their official western launch a too-little-too-late situation? With mild trepidation of what I may find, I return to Bless Online for my definitive Bless Online Launch Review.

Dreadnought Review - A Welcome Break from 'Real World' Ship Battlers

Games like World of Tanks, Star Conflict, and War Thunder are out there with bigger crowds of people to play with. Sometimes that is what drives people to or from a game. Dreadnought does bring its own features to the ship battle game type though.

MapleStory 2 Review - It's a Great Time to Jump In

MapleStory 2 is an MMORPG that takes place in the same world as MapleStory 1 but essentially a different dimension. You take the role of the hero while choosing from one of nine jobs. Each job has its own backstory per the usual with MapleStory. These are just some of the choices with yet another coming later this year. Until then, this is our full Maple Story 2 review.

Boundless Review - A Unique & Often Satisfying Experience

Sandbox MMO’s are always an interesting genre to dive into. Many aspects of this genre can be found in other genres; building, survival, economy, and combat to name a few. However when mashed together on a massive scale where the only real narrative is governed by the players that inhabit said world, it creates a unique and on occasion, satisfying experience.
