The last year has been an interesting one for the virtual world of online games. It seemed that the free-to-play mmo was going to continue to be the undisputed king, especially in light of games like League of Legends that rake in over a billion dollars. Yet a funny thing began to occur as many game companies began to realize that very few games will ever match the success of League of Legends. Newer titles like Overwatch released not as a f2p mm...

Top five takeaways of World of Warcraft Nostalrius server resurrection

Nostalgia remains a potent force in the lives of gamers. One would think that the relatively new existence of mmorpg games would lead to a lack of nostalgia, but such a sentiment would be wrong. The original crop of online gamers lament the lack of challenge found in most mmo games today and still wistfully talk about the vibrant, albeit small, communities that were forged long ago. One particular area of nostalgia is for vanilla World of Warcraf...

Looking at the League of Legends deal with MLBAM

There is one aspect of eSports that perfectly coincides with traditional sports, which is seeking to gain as much revenue as possible through advertising and other means. While an online rpg like League of Legends makes over a billion dollars a year from its players, there is definitely an issue in monetizing the eSports tournament format. Regular sports, such as football and basketball, make hundreds of millions of dollars every year through adv...

Top five worst mmo features

There are a lot of compelling reasons to play an online rpg, such as escaping the drudgery of our daily lives and being able to adventure in fantastic worlds. Developers spend a lot of time crafting innovative and, hopefully, fun features to keep gamers playing, but not all mmo features are created equal.

Marvel Heroes 2016 Black Cat review

There has long been a connection between cats and criminals. This is due to several reasons, such as the nocturnal nature of cats and the stealth associated with successful thieves. Thus we get the notorious cat burglar, which is exemplified in the Marvel universe by Black Cat.

The text-based MUDs have given way to insanely lush graphics and fully-voiced NPCs.

Movies and video games go together like peanut butter and jelly. They both feed the imagination with compelling stories, arresting visuals, and lots of action. It seems that mmorpg gamers are just as happy discussing the latest Marvel movie as they are talking about the latest build for their main online character. This visceral relationship has led to a number of games being made into movies, but the results have usually been very disappointing....
