Top five mmo Christmas wish list
It's that special time of year when people are actually nicer to each other and the air is full of holiday cheer. People build snowmen and sing Christmas carols in a winter wonderland (or not, in my case, as I live in sunny Florida), and children eagerly wait for Santa to come by on Christmas Eve and leave a bounty of presents for them. In fact, everybody has their own personal wish list for Christmas, especially mmorpg gamers. In our version of ...

Importance of mmo safety
The world can be a dangerous place, and it seems to become even more so with every passing day. One area of concern is that of online safety and the rise of online predators. Hardly a week goes by without some sensational, and usually sad, story popping up on the evening news about how some deranged person stalked an innocent party using the internet. The people of today, especially children, are wired into the internet on a scale unimaginable ev...

Top five disappointing mmos
There's almost nothing like the excitement of following the development of mmorpg games that we're really looking forward to. Gamers will scour the internet for any developer interviews, watch streaming broadcasts of alpha gameplay footage, and become actively engaged in gaming forums discussing the game in question. As players, we all hope that the game we're looking forward to lives up to the hype. There are times when they do, and we're ecstat...

Plight of missing mmo events
One thing that I am in the realm of mmorpg games is a content junkie. There's nothing I savor more than getting to play something new to take me out of the daily grind that seems to be the standard in gaming nowadays. While I look forward to the huge expansions in games, such as the Warlords of Draenor expansion in World of Warcraft, it's more of the smaller events that I really get a kick out of. However, there is one drawback to enjoying such e...

Top five mmo influences
When most players log into their favorite mmorpg, they don't consider the evolution that online gaming has undergone since they were a gleam in a developer's eye. The reality is that most people just see the end product, not those things that had come before and have had a major impact upon the development of online games. Everything that is created in our world is built on what had come before, and this is true of online games as well. They did ...

Current state of superhero mmos
Many gamers love to adventure in virtual worlds of online fantasy as stout dwarves or agile elves. Other players prefer to venture into the icy depths of space to engage in epic space battles or to explore where no man has gone before. Those are great types of mmorpg games, but there's just something special about donning some tights, a cape, and a mask, and then heading out into the night to bust criminals in the jaw that no other genre can repl...

Marvel Heroes 2015 Industry City Patrol review
Being a lifelong Marvel fan. I grew up reading, and collecting, a lot of different titles. I've enjoyed the recent cinematic explosion of Marvel goodness that has occurred with franchises like Iron Man, Captain America, and SHIELD. One thing that I've always equated superheroes with is action, which is why I always enjoy leaping into Marvel Heroes 2015. This free mmo never stints on the mayhem as players beat up endless hordes of bad guys and cos...

mmo team player
If you go on raids and quests, day in, day out with the same bunch of friends, you end up falling in-sync with each other and big boss events quickly become precise operations; running like clockwork and with near-military precision. From time to time, however, your mmo mates won’t be around, and you’ll need to delve into the dungeons with a bunch of strangers. Whether it’s because you’re venturing into a different virtual world, checking out a n...

Wide diversity of mmo games
It's rather staggering to see the large number of options open to gamers today. If I may don the gray beard of old man talking, the environment of today is a far cry of what it was back when I was growing up in the 1970s. The initial gaming choice for us was the original Atari long before it became known as the Atari 2600. Other consoles quickly followed, such as the Intellivision, the Odyssey, Colecovision, and then the Nintendo. Online gaming w...

Can we have less mmo drama?
This may be a bit presumptive, but I believe that I speak for many mmo gamers when I say that the goal when playing online games is to have fun. We sometimes lose sight that mmos are a game, and, as such, should be fun to play. Many things can impact our enjoyment of the game, such as how the game handles things like combat, crafting, and classes, but one other area of online gaming can have a huge impact upon our experience. To put it bluntly, I...
