The Indie Singularity

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. The promise hinted at by games like Ultima Online and EverQuest had been promptly followed by a decade and a half of industry-enforced entropy. Then, like the hammer-wielding heroine from Apple's iconic Super Bowl XVIII commercial, Minecraft came sprinting out of nowhere to crack the face of established mediocrity.

Living Story Season 2 Tour

Guild Wars 2's Season 2 launched earlier this week, and aims to set a new precedent for the game's Living Story content. ArenaNet invited us to take a tour of Season 2's first episode, Gates of Maguuma, and I've come away from it having a more clear understanding of their shift in direction for storytelling.

Welcome to Alpha

Styx - Master of Shadows: Who Doesn't Want to Play a Goblin?
Posted by MMORPG.COM News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 June 2014, 11:09 pm

Who Doesn

One of the best things about going to game conventions is seeing games that really surprise you. For the second time in a row Styx, Master of Shadows has done just that. If you are a fan of stealth style RPGs where charging in is not recommended, then you will love Styx. The goblin that hides, poisons water by puking, and cuts foes down with leaping death from the rafters has shown us two solid demos now. We can only wait until the game launches later this year.

Beta Hands-on

Thanks to a string of successful LEGO video games and a hit LEGO Movie, LEGOs are once again a big part of mainstream culture. That means the time is right for an online LEGO game, and Funcom's seizing the opportunity. Launching this summer, LEGO Minifigures Online is currently in beta, and in its present state, though missing a good chunk of its final content is already more fun than a barrel of Minifigures.

The Other Top 5 Hardcore MMORPGs

There are lots of awesome MMOs out there. So many in fact, that in my previous list about the best hardcore MMORPGs, I felt like I wasn't quite able to list them all. Sure, I stand by the 5 that I picked to grace that first list and they are undoubtedly the best, but what about the other games?




Guild Wars 2: Ready to mount up?
Posted by MMORPG.COM News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 June 2014, 7:27 pm

Ready to mount up?

Guild Wars 2 isn't always serious. There are plenty of ways for players to goof off with large collections of minis, or throwing food at others while wearing a costume! Players have even spent a lot of time mastering the instruments, playing songs for the digital world to hear! Players have done all of these things, even while wearing Charr plush backpacks! Ya, the game has some pretty silly things, but why do so many people get mad when you mention adding mounts to the gem store?

Upcoming free to play new mobile MMORPG Legion of Heroes aims to sate MMORPG hunger on the go with its upcoming release on mobile devices. The game is set for release on both iOS and Android devices. I spent some time with the game's closed beta recently on a tablet running Android 4.4.3. So how does it play? It might take some getting used to, but it could surprise some players in a good way.




Diablo 3: Hands-On with the PS4 Version
Posted by MMORPG.COM News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 June 2014, 7:44 pm

Hands-On with the PS4 Version

Although I really enjoy Diablo 3, I must admit that I have a particular bias towards the PC version, simply because of my preference for playing action RPGs with a mouse and keyboard. I play it almost exclusively multiplayer, however, and have thought at times that the experience could benefit from some couch co-op once in a while.
