How mmos should emulate the LotRO course
One of the main goals of mmo games when they first burst upon the scene was to give players the ability to experience the virtual worlds of the online realms with thousands of other players. Players would use the online game to forge deep connections with one another, despite the differences in location, language, and culture. The shared experience was set to be the heart of mmo immersion, but that sentiment has gone off the rails over the last d...

Lord of the Rings Online course begins
One of the hallmarks of a great online rpg is a deep and compelling lore that serves as a solid foundation. Most players would agree that the online game that features the greatest amount of lore is Lord of the Rings Online. The game is very faithful to the vision of J.R.R. Tolkien, who wrote many works breathing life into the realm of Middle-Earth (not to mention actually creating the Elvish language). Now gamers can dive more deeply into this r...

DDO and LotRO leaving Turbine
A major announcement just dropped concerning two long-standing online games. For quite some time, there has been a lot of speculation on whether Dungeons and Dragons Online and Lord of the Rings Online would continue to operate in light of the recent layoffs at Turbine as well as the game company's desire to focus on the lucrative mobile game market. The good news is that both games are going to continue to operate. However, there is the DDO and ...

Lord of the Rings Online Update 19 delayed

Players were hoping to begin playing Lord of the Rings Online Update 19, called March of the King, today, but developers have posted on the game's forums that the update will be delayed a few days. The culprit is an issue with the Henneth Annun landscape within the mmo that the developers wish to correct before letting the update go live.There is hope that the Lord of th...

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...

Future Lord of the Rings Online content teased
Far too often, we see good mmo games closing down for good. I was one of the pundits who speculated that Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons and Dragons Online would be closing down sooner rather than later due to the recent layoffs at Turbine and the company's focus on creating free-to-play mobile games. So far, my speculation is proving to be false. Yesterday, Executive Producer Robert “Severlin” Ciccolini addressed the future plans of DDO th...

Does the Turbine layoffs mean the end of DDO and LotRO?
If there's one characteristic of the world of online games, it's that they're always in a constant state of flux. New mmo games are developed and released while older games gradually fade away. What was once considered standard, such as a monthly subscription, is replaced by a different model, such as free-to-play, entirely. Game companies rise and fall, and it appears that Turbine is about set to make a major transition. The company has made two...

Lord of the Rings Online Throne of the Dread Terror raid revealed
One thing that mmo players love to do is complain. Every segment of the gaming population (PvP, endgame enthusiasts, solo players, etc.) is guilty of saying that their particular online game is not providing enough content for their specific tastes. In the case of Lord of the Rings Online and players who love to raid, this is true to the extent that is has been three long years since a new raid has been added to the game. Now that is set to chang...

Top five immersive mmo games
There's nothing like immersing oneself wholly into the virtual world of an online game. Going on epic quests, slaying foul monsters, and flying across the stars is a welcome respite from the problems and stresses of the real world. This is why I've always been a fan of mmos that strive to be as immersive as possible. There are lots of ways for an mmo to create a sense of immersion for the player, ranging from full voice acting to exceptionally de...

Lord of the Rings Online Update 18 live
While it is always immensely fun to explore dungeons and fight some boss in a massive raid, there's just something extra special about taking part in a truly epic battle in mmo games. Perhaps it's that the stakes are so much higher or that victory always comes with some loss, but huge battles always have always had a special place in fantasy lore. Now gamers can take part in the biggest fantasy battle of all time, the Battle of the Pelennor Field...
