As mmorpg games have switched from being subscription-based to being free-to-play or buy-to-play, developers have looked for new ways to generate revenue. One proven method is the cash shop, which is usually stocked with consumables, mounts, services (such as extra inventory and bank space), and cosmetic gear. Another method, which has led to considerable online discussion, is the selling of mmo lockboxes that contain random items, and it seems t... Read

In a perfect world, every aspect of an online rpg would be thoroughly tested and vetted before being released to the live servers. This would mean that every feature and system of the game would run seamlessly and there would be no issues. However, the reality is that we don't live in a perfect world, and a lot of mmo content is released that may contain some bugs. The testing of mmorpg content differs somewhat between the initial development and... Read

The Elder Scrolls franchise of games has created many happy memories for gamers. One of the most fondly remembered features of the games was the Dark Brotherhood, the shadowy league of assassins that players could join. Personally, the Dark Brotherhood storyline from Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion remains the best story arc I have ever played in a game.

Whether one plays a PC, console, or mmo game, they're usually forced to follow a singular path, which normally means being the chosen savior. However, the Elder Scrolls games allowed me to play as a thief and even an assassin. It's this latter profession that gave me the greatest playing experience I h... Read
