  • Blog Post: Busting Up Boredom: Warlords Of Draenor's Quest Success

    The World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor leveling loop is the best we’ve seen in the game so far, designed to keep the player continually engaged while participating in the same style of quest the game has had for years. The revolution isn’t in the form of standard quests – they’re... More

  • Blog Post: Exploring Freedom In World Of Warcraft

    My mind started racing with ideas when we here at Game Informer decided to reflect on games that made us feel free for the Fourth of July .

  • Blog Post: Game Ideas That Were Crazy Enough To Work

    PopCap latest installment in its Plants vs. Zombies franchise was a bit unorthodox, to say the least. Rather than follow up with yet another dose of reliable lawn-defense action, the studio decided to create an action-packed shooter, in the style of a Battlefield or Call of Duty. It’s just the...

  • Blog Post: Places – World Of Warcraft's Crossroads

    Some would say Blizzard’s virtual playground of Azeroth is all about acquiring new, rare loot or participating in end-game content, which might be true for some.

Neither title is polished, but the concept itself has kept gamers enamored. Our time... More

  • Blog Post: Massive – World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

    It was bound to happen eventually. After more than seven years of supremacy as the MMO of choice for genre players, World of Warcraft’s new expansion is the first to feel like it’s not the definitive king of the MMO pack, even if its player count still dwarfs everything else. Star Wars: The... More

    Sometimes video game franchises are kind of similar. It can’t be avoided. Sometimes, those games inspire conflict and people take sides.
