Blizzard Entertainment has taken the wraps off of the first events that will usher in World of Warcraft's 10th anniversary this November.

Moonrise may not seem like the logical next game from State of Decay creator Undead Labs. But UL is a studio filled with gamers that play everything, and mobile games are kind of a big deal so it makes sense to us that while they plug away on their next zombie-themed title, they might try something in that arena. But instead of a craptacular Candy Crush clone, we're getting what looks to be a fantastically vibrant new RPG based around collecting and fighting monsters.

MMOs are among the most intimidating genres for entry-level gamers, second only perhaps, to flight simulators.

By design, MMOs are more fun to play with your friends. Most of them encourage or even require grouping for a lot of the best and most rewarding content, which necessitates either being social in the game world, or coming into the experience with a pre-determined group of friends to play with. Sometimes though, it can be hard to find people. Whatever the case may be, every MMO player wishes X friend would play in their favorite virtual worlds with them.
I rolled into Austin beneath dark and water-laden skies last week to see what the guys at Portalarium were cooking up for Release 8 of their Shroud of the Avatar. Thunder rocked the sky as I stepped from my truck and turned to see lightning striking across the menacingly named Greystone Building. The drama of the moment seems appropriate in hindsight, because I've now seen what the team has planned for their next release.

Most players in an MMO band together to form guilds. Members of a guild can call upon one another for help, or to join in on a tough dungeon. I've made a lot of friends playing in guilds over the years, in several different MMOs. There's one game that really made the guild experience feel important, and that was the original Guild Wars, which had a nice feature called the guild hall... a feature that Guild Wars 2 is sadly missing.
Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade and the developers' decision to limit free players to the deliberately weaker Ork Boyz is a troubling precedent in the freemium game space. It's not unheard of for some games to limit your race choice based upon how much you are or aren't paying. This is the situation in the upcoming PvP-oriented game, and it's concerning.
