It's a sad day for mmofps fans today, as the sun sets (or maybe "rises" would be a better term, in this case) on the vampiric shooter, Nosgoth.
The Legacy of Kain franchise as a whole has been an outcast, but cult saga of rpg games, with Nosgoth taking place in one of the most vital parts of its lore. With the human race taking its last stand against the underworld, Nosgoth truly set the perfect stage for an asymmetric shooter.
Back in 2013, wh... Read

Flashpoint in Nosgoth has come across as a bit of a hit and miss mode. Due to the fact the Nosgoth is, for the most part, an asymmetrical, "Hunter vs Hunted" style mmofps, traditional game modes aren't always the best way to play the game to its strengths.
