How to pick a fantasy mmo

Once upon a time in ye olden days of yore, a player seeking to play a fantasy mmorpg only had a few options to choose from. The main decision was whether to play Ultima Online or EverQuest, but things have changed dramatically since those days. Now gamers are pretty spoiled as there are literally hundreds of fantasy-based games to choose from. However, not all such games are equal, and quite a few appeal to those who prefer a certain playing styl...

Top five Warhammer 40K: Eternal Crusade factions we want added

In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war. Such words have thrilled players of the Warhammer 40K tabletop miniatures game for almost forty years. The game's setting is incredibly rich and detailed and there have been a few attempts to bring it to an online setting. Sadly, the previous attempts to create a WH40K mmorpg have failed, but the upcoming Warhammer 40K: Eternal Crusade looks to change all that by delivering an action-pack...

Top five weird mmo games

Contrary to the opinion of most gamers, not every online rpg that's been developed has been a clone of World of Warcraft. Some games do feature a unique take on the mmo experience. Some of these games that tried to do something different have succeeded, while others may have veered off the path and into the woods. There are definitely some weird and oddball online games floating around the internet. While such games may not induce you to lose you...

How to tell a dying mmo

Even though they exist in virtual worlds, online games follow the same life cycle of living things. They are born, they mature, and then they die. No game will last forever, even though a few have proven to be pretty resilient. No player wants to be stuck in a dying mmorpg, but it happens all the time, with the most recent example being The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot. Developers will always do their best to hide the symptoms of a dying mmo, hopin...

Livelock review

It's funny, but it's always seemed that robots, firepower, and utter destruction have always gone together. Back in the 1980s, I spent many, many hours at my local video game arcade, and one of the games I loved to play was Robotron: 2084. This particular game featured the player protecting humans from hordes of rampaging robots. The player had two joysticks at his command: one for movement and the other to aim his shooting. The game was action-p...

Why we love the World of Warcraft Tomb of Sargeras audio drama

The wait is almost over for World of Warcraft players as the release date for the Legion expansion draws ever closer. Blizzard has done an admirable job of promoting the expansion for the online rpg, releasing cinematic trailers, livestreams, and teaser videos. The recent Warcraft movie also helped lend a hand by bringing orcs back to the forefront. One of the more interesting methods that Blizzard has used to get players excited about the upcomi...

In the world of online games, there are plenty of opportunities for players to use hacks, cheats, and exploits to get ahead of the curve, s...

Star Trek Online Terminal Expanse review

Time travel has really expanded the scope of going where no man has gone before in Star Trek Online. The Agents of Yesterday expansion has brought the era of the original series to the online rpg, but the beauty of the expansion is that multiple eras of the Star Trek franchise have now been opened for the player. The Yesterday's War story arc began in the original series era but then moved to the Enterprise era with the second episode. The conclu...

Why we love the Crowfall Bestiary lore

A lot of hard work is poured into the creation of an mmo, and there are figuratively tons of decisions that have to be made during development. A lot of developer blogs focus on the nuts and bolts of combat systems, class powers, and what sort of crafting and resource gathering systems to implement. All of those features are important, but they are pretty cut-and-dried when compared to how the game is supposed to make you feel. Immersion is one o...
