  • This is Why We Play MMOs and RPGs

    Why do we play MMOs and RPGs? The answer is no clearer in the United States than this week following a bitterly fought presidential election. This week Chris ponders that question and what games mean to us in the heat of the moment.

  • When Games Inspire: The Wildest Hunt

    Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt not only served as a final chapter in CD Projekt Red’s telling of Geralt’s tory but it also introduced the characters and setting to millions more people than the previous games had. As a result, it’s hardly surprising to find there is no shortage of Witcher 3 Fan Art and cosplay. Here are some of the best I have found.

  • No Man’s Sky Will Probably Disappoint You

    Hold onto your hats, pilots. No Man’s Sky has been delayed until August. With expectations soaring incredibly high, this week the RPG Files asks whether this first-person space adventure could ever live up to the hype. Plus, The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine reviews, Kings and Heroes’ Early Access Launch, new Final Fantasy XV gameplay details and more in this week’s Quick Hits!

  • Blood and Wine - One Last Sip From the Cup

    Geralt is being held up from retirement for one last adventure. Does CD Projekt Red leave him with a good story to end on? Read on for Rob’s review.

  • The Witcher 3's Next Expansion is a Game Changer

    This was a big week for fans of The Witcher 3. Not only did we find out that the final, massive expansion, Blood and Wine, will be releasing on May 31st, but the embargo on a March preview event expired, leading to an incredible info dump of exciting details (credit to Dmax3901 on NeoGaf). Its safe to say, Blood and Wine is a game changer.

  • The Division is Already Better Than Destiny

    The Division has been compared to Destiny since long before it launched. Now that both games are in the wild, our RPG columnist has gotten his hands on both and has rendered his initial verdict. It might change once, but for now, find out why he think The Division is clearly better than Destiny.

  • Sister Wives - The Tale of the Modern RPG

    It’s almost Valentine’s Day and love is in the air! This week, Chris talks about sweet, sweet love, erm… workin’ it, and how modern RPGs really seem to hate monogamy.

  • Is Beta the New Launch?

    After taking time to read yesterday’s feature on The Upcoming MMOs of 2016 it really seems like more and more games that are launching in 2016 are already playable now. I’ve asked this question years ago when beta keys were given out like candy as a marketing ploy to get new players into the game. Betas are supposed to be for testing, at least, they used to be. Now, instead of being used to market a game, they are just outright used to sell the game in early access.

  • Why The Witcher 3 is a Better RPG than Fallout 4

    As the year draws to a close, gamers and critics around the world are figuring what their best games of the year were. In the RPG category there are two clear contenders: Fallout 4 and The Witcher 3. Fallout is a phenomenon years in the making. On the other hand, The Witcher 3 is a grassroots success that has taken the gaming world by storm. Despite a long, beloved history and mighty publishing power of Bethesda, The Witcher 3 is by far the better roleplaying game. Here's why.

  • 5 Things MMOs Could Learn from The Witcher 3

    Like most things, it seems like we go through phases of getting big, sprawling single-player RPGs to sink our teeth into. It’s a totally different genre than the MMO game, for rightful reasons, but there are a lot of overlaps as well. Most people that enjoy MMOs probably enjoy single-player RPGs as well and I’d wager to say that the majority of the people that read this are either playing currently or at least have an interest in playing, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

  • Review in Progress (Finally)

    Sure, plenty of places have already called The Witcher 3 one of the greatest games of all time, and they might be right. But PC codes for the epic RPG from CD Projekt Red just went out yesterday, so you’ll have to stomach us getting our review done after the rest of the known world. Today, we’ll go into our thoughts after spending the first couple of hours in Geralt’s final adventure, with the full review coming next week.

  • E3 2014 - Seeing What the Buzz is All About

    Earlier this week I told everyone that one of my favorite things about E3 is discovering the little gems that are hovering just under my radar that I usually get to see on the last day of the convention. For the record this year my favorite such game was Pillars of Eternity. But as much as I love that little game nothing can compete with what I consider my personal game of show, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt.

  • Hearts of Stone Adds More Everything to the Witcher 3

    Hearts of Stone is the first of several planned expansions to this year's phenomenal RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. We reached out to CDProjektRed with some questions about what we can expect from the add-on, and we were not disappointed with the answers.

  • The Best of 2015

    If this year of MMO releases can be categorized by any one thing, it might be that the existing MMOs in the landscape had great years, while we wait for the next big thing to come along. Meanwhile, the single player RPG had an absolutely stellar time, with some truly amazing games and expansions released throughout the calendar year. We’ve polled our staff, and these are the games we loved the most in 2015, and the ones we’re looking forward to the most in 2016.

  • The Best of E3 2014 Awards

    It’s that time again, folks - the time of year where E3 has come and gone and we meaninglessly list out our favorite games from the show. Okay, it’s not entirely meaningless. E3 is one of the biggest events in gaming and it’s a great place to get a first look and first hands-on with some of the year’s best and brightest titles. So without further ado, here are MMORPG.com’s Best of E3 2014 Awards.

  • Fallout is Still Riddled with Bugs and That’s a Problem

    Gamers everywhere are returning to the wasteland. You’ll hear a lot in the coming weeks about how much there is to love in Bethesda’s new RPG -- and also about bugs. Like every Bethesda game before it, Fallout 4 has its fair share of glitches. Join us as we explore why this is a bigger problem than gamers make it out to be.

  • Witcher 3 Gets Inventory Patch, More Problems

    The Witcher 3 received its 1.07 patch this week, bringing with it much needed inventory improvements and an alternative movement mode. Unfortunately, it also brought a brand new problem. This week, Chris takes the issue and looks at the larger problem of unfinished games and post-launch patches. Plus, a meaty Diablo 3 update, Chris Roberts responds to Star Citizen drama, new Fallout 4 gameplay, and more!

  • Five Games to Watch in the Second Half of 2015

    It’s hard to believe that it’s July, and we’ve already seen a number of highly-anticipated titles release in the first half of the year. Pillars of Eternity, The Witcher 3, and Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward are all out, The Elder Scrolls Online has launched on consoles, and there have been open beta or “live” releases for Trove, Heroes of the Storm, and Skyforge.

  • The Witcher 3 is Not Skyrim

    Read any forum, reddit thread, or review of The Witcher 3 and you’re likely to come across Skyrim. Constant comparisons, the “it’s better than, worse than, learn this from that and don’t forget the crafting” kind of banter consistently put these two games at odds with each other. It was easy to do before having played the game. Now that we have, it’s time to admit that we were so, so wrong. These games shouldn’t be compared. Here’s why.

  • Witcher 3 - 2 Expansions, 30+ Hours of Content

    CD Projekt Red astounded fans this week by announcing two expansion packs for The Witcher 3 this week. Totaling more than 30 hours of game time, and on the back of sixteen free pieces of DLC already coming, The Witcher 3 is out to set a new standard for fan service. The studio also took to Twitter to answer questions from its fans and revealed new information in the process. All that and more in this week’s RPG Files!

  • The Witcher Will Take Hundreds of Hours To Complete

    The Year of the RPG continues to steam along with more and more quality titles releasing as the months march along. This week is no exception, with new titles coming out and old favorites being updated. Add in a dash of general news about some and it works out to another great week for RPG fans.

  • The Multiplayer RPG Experience

    180+ hours into Guild Wars 2, I’ve only recently begun digging into its assortment of dungeons. Sure, I’ve dabbled in my fair share of pre-level cap PvP and open world small parties, but I’ve been waiting to hit 80 to sink my teeth into the game’s group content. As I mentioned in last week’s column, I’m no stranger to dungeons and raids in MMOs, and have historically sought out group content commensurate to my level.

  • The Witcher 3 and The Case for Game Delays

    Thousands of fans woke up to letdown this week when CD Projekt Red announced that they would once again be delaying The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. MMO fans faced much the same when Zenimax announced that the console versions of The Elder Scrolls Online would be facing a similar delay and not release until sometime in 2015. Even through the haze of disappointment, there’s a silver lining here: maybe these games will actually work when they launch.

  • Pillars of Eternity - Making the Old New Again

    If you’re an old school RPG fan, this year is likely to go down in your record book. Divinity: Original Sin came out last month and impressed us all with its retro-roots and intense difficulty. Not to be outdone, Obsidian’s Pillars of Eternity came out of the gate swinging this week and blew away press with a series of interviews and sneak peeks to leave any CRPG fan salivating. The old is new again.
