Top Five Awesome Things At Comic Con

Some of us are lucky enough to go to San Diego Comic Con. Others, like me, either can’t afford to go or can’t get their hands on a ticket. Either way, that leaves us sitting at home, watching it all unfold through social media and articles on websites. The flurry of events, panels, and shows [...]

Spreading Disease Like a Dog: Naxxramus Plague Wing Thoughts

So here we are at week two of Hearthstone‘s Naxxramus release. This week we have the Plague Wing, and Hearthhead once again had guides out in record time.

Being a Pirate In ArcheAge: Worth it?

There has been a lot of talk about the pirate system in ArcheAge. At first glance, pirates are free to do pretty much whatever they want to. They’re free to attack any other players, except in safe zones. They can build farms and houses wherever they want to, except the second they set foot in [...]

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Trailer Released

The first teaser trailer for the upcoming (and final) installment was released at 2:00pm central time on Monday afternoon–and yes, I did wait for the clock to tick down. It was well worth the wait, too. The trailer does a great job of setting the stage for the next movie, mixing action and drama well. [...]

WildStar’s Small Leap Toward the Risk Factor

We’re past the dawn of the MMORPG clones. After World of Warcraft‘s continued success many a moon ago, we saw years of MMORPGs with the same exact UI setup, the same quest setup, the same question marks above NPC heads, the same endgame setup, the same silly currencies to grind for, the same cute fluffy [...]

Thanks to Steam, you can currently save 66% off founders packs and upgrades for Landmark, SOE’s upcoming sandbox game.

Trove: A Building and Combat Adventure Land!

This dynamic voxel MMO has evolved through the roof since I first jumped into Alpha way back at Christmas time. I was a little reserved then, not having been drawn to any voxel game beforehand. I thought maybe I was taking my love for Trion games a little too far. I have been blown away [...]

Opinion: Is Marvel Really Promoting Diversity?

It seems as though there is always fervor on the internet, and most recently this has been surrounding Marvel’s recent announcement of the changes in their Avenger’s lineup. Comic book fanboys (and those who appreciate the Marvel cinematic universe) were surprised to hear that the company had made significant changes in two of their titles—Thor [...]

Swordsman Online: A Review of Swords

I like swords. I suppose I can’t help it. I was raised with Final Fantasy and other JRPGs like Suidoden where swords weren’t only awesome– but they were a key to victory of sorts. Required. Just like cool victory poses! Which, of course, also included swords. Swordsman Online is Perfect World’s latest free-to-play addition to [...]

RIFT: A Week of Fashion Concepts Buff Telara

Being a judge for the recent RIFT Summer Wardrobe Contest wasn’t an easy feat. The reactions to the event itself and winners were mixed which was expected not only because of the nature of community-led projects but also because the sunny theme of summer isn’t simply defined– especially in an MMORPG where design animations don’t include an extensive [...]

During the first [...]

Physical Copy of Wii Sports Club Releases July 25, Free Trial

I won’t lie. After a few reviews I’d read, I had written off Wii Sports Club, and not just because of the pricing situation. Several stated that the game requires more skill, which is good for gamers but bad for the people we might be trying to convert. Worse yet, for me personally. boxing, which had [...]

SDCC is infamous. It has the biggest TV shows, movies, and comic publishers. But it’s not just where all the stars go–it’s where all the toy companies will be, too.

The Road Ahead for Elder Scrolls Online

Despite still being in its first year of launch, Elder Scrolls Online has already seen its share of rough times. How large that share actually is will depend on who you ask, of course. According to recent information from Superdata, ESO has over 770,000 subscribers as of June which is a fairly impressive number given [...]

I Killed a T-Rex: Review of “Beasts of Prey”

It’s a funny feeling when you think you’ve “beaten” an MMO. I mean, technically, an MMO doesn’t end until it’s canceled, and you don’t get any special end credits or cut scenes for it. “Beating” an MMO, for me means I accomplished a goal that I feel has to be done, and nothing after that [...]
