PAX Prime 2014 Awards

Well the end of summer is here. For most of us that means back to school in some form or work in another. This year at PAX Prime we saw a host of AAA titles and Indie Games that will shape the landscape entering into the final half of the year and the first few months of 2015. With a major presence by top publishers we are still in awe of the powerful independent game movement that is sweeping the industry.

Beautiful Little Casual Mobile MMO

Dawn of the Immortals, launched worldwide August 1 by publishers Perfect World Entertainment is a new 3-D MMO for iOS platforms (Android in the near future, they tell us). It is a casual MMO.

I played it on my new iPad Air and it ran beautifully.

Diving Back Into A Realm Reborn

Of all the MMO's from AAA studios that have come out in the past 12 months I was probably least excited about Final Fantasy XIV: ARR. I've been a lifelong fan of the FF franchise but after the original XIV I was a member of the "fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice - can't get fooled again" crowd. Because I did not have high expectations for the game upon its release I was pleasantly surprised when I set out to review it.
