The top five new shows we want made into mmos

Developers draw inspiration for creating mmo games from a variety of sources.

Star Trek Online Ragnarok review

The climatic battle for the fate of the Star Trek Online timeline is finally at hand. The last few seasons of content for the sci-fi online rpg introduced the ability for players to time travel, which led to some dire consequences.

Yet with all the f2p games in existence, nothing gets a gamer angrier faster than hearing that something is pay-to-win. It does not matter if the p2w aspect of an online game is big or ...

Top five old school mmo features we don't miss

Older gamers often comment that the mmorpg games of the past were far superior than the online games of today.

A company founded in 1991 by three men who had just received their bachelor's degrees has gone on to be one of the most influential maker of computer and online games.

How to survive as a solo mmo PvP player

One of the main changes to mmorpg games over the last few years is that solo gameplay is far more encouraged and catered to. It's possible in most online games to go from level one to end cap without ever having to group. Player opinion on this phenomenon is mixed, with some players happy with it while others say that it goes against the massively multiplayer aspect of mmo games. Yet there is one area of the game where a solo player cannot escape...
