  • Blog Post: Black Desert Online: An Oasis For Sandbox MMORPG Lovers

    If you’re looking for a dungeon-oriented, raid-centric endgame MMORPG where it’s all about getting to level cap and gearing up, Black Desert Online isn’t for you. If themepark-style MMORPGs where you’re getting your tickets to ride the dungeons and raids are losing their luster... More
  • Blog Post: Why You Need To Play Blade & Soul

  • Blog Post: Is Knights Of The Fallen Empire The Star Wars RPG You’ve Been Waiting For?

  • Blog Post: World Of Warships Is Hard To Put Down And Wargaming's Best Yet

    The third addition to Wargaming’s suite of wargames takes the battle to the seas as players embrace torpedoes, artillery barrages, and repair crews scrambling to put out fires and keep flooding down.

  • Blog Post: The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited - Returning To An Expansive Fantasy World

    Day two of my latest adventure in the lands of Tamriel on PlayStation 4 begins with me dodging town guards – apparently stealing every loaf of bread has drawn the ire of the city. It didn’t help that I “accidentally” launched a fireball blast at a citizen that was napping on the... More
  • Blog Post: Not A Review: Firefall

    During the desperate combat, battling tides of aliens in your jetpack power ­armor, Firefall seems to offer everything a hybrid ­MMO/shooter possibly could. After the dust settles, it’s a different story. When much of your cash has been eaten by repair costs and you’ve shaved off... More
  • Blog Post: Not A Review – Neverwinter

    Cryptic’s latest probably isn’t what most would picture as a Dungeons & Dragons MMORPG, but it works surprisingly well as a multiplayer fantasy action game. Plus, Neverwinter’s powerful creation tools have already borne delicious fruit in the form of player-crafted adventures. ... More

  • Blog Post: Conquer The Old Republic With These Tips

    Like all MMOs, Star Wars: The Old Republic has unbelievably terrible default keybindings. Stave off repetitive stress injuries and dramatically improve your reaction times in the game by learning from this sage keybinding advice.

  • Blog Post: Editorial: Why Skyrim Is The Opposite Of A "Single-Player MMO"

    Since Morrowind broke Bethesda's Elder Scrolls series into the mainstream, people have described the games as "single-player MMOs." The breadth of content available in Todd Howard's sprawling open worlds may be comparable to the better sort of MMORPGs, but the fundamental hooks that... More
  • Blog Post: Rift's Compelling Case For Your MMO Allegiance

    Why I’m happily grinding away in Telara while an army of Azerothian alts lays dormant : I’m done with “massively singleplayer.” The obnoxious overuse of phasing in Cataclysm’s 80-85 zones, along with a content development philosophy that seems to hold that no non-instanced... More
