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. Recently, Marvel Heroes 2016 offered mmo players the ability to get Black Cat for free for logging in during Black Friday. We snagged one to give the character a whirl wit...

How to improve mmo gameplay

Playing online games has changed dramatically over the last few decades.

Neverwinter Storm King's Thunder review

Things are getting chilly in Neverwinter. In fact, they're getting downright freezing. It seems that frost giants are wreaking havoc in Icewind Dale, and it's up to the players to figure out what's going on and to stop it. The online rpg not only draws inspiration from the vast history of the pen-and-paper Dungeons and Dragons rpg, but Cryptic works closely with Wizards of the Coast to follow along with the latest storyline for D&D. The Storm...
