Fledgling MOBA Conquers Mobile

Back in October, I visited Super Evil Megacorp's lair where the team treated me to an early look at its mobile MOBA, Vainglory. What I experienced that day got my hopes up for a dynamic, fun, accessible MOBA I could take with me anywhere. Now that the game's been officially released, I'm happy to say I haven't been disappointed.

Lastly, the Nightshade race enters the game with two distinct classes, the Stormbringer and the Duskblade.

The Troubling State of Rogue

Just about anything you could do with Rogue since Naxxramas, you'd be better served doing with the game's other classes. And now with Goblins vs. Gnomes, things appear to have gotten worse.

Monsters and Linking and Caves, Oh My!

While the folks at Sony Online Entertainment had to delay the launch of their biggest update to Landmark since they released Alpha until later this week, they still went ahead and invited press to a private livestream to give a preview of all the new goodies coming in the update, which was originally slated to either take only four hours to load and get the servers open again, or it could take up to 48 hours.

State of the Game: 10 MMOs to Watch in 2015

It certainly wasn't a record-breaking year, but it was what I'd like to think of as the calm before the storm. Right around 2011, game developers collectively regrouped, realized that copying World of Warcraft probably isn't the best idea, and took to this new thing called Kickstarter to bypass big, out-of-touch publishers to create what the people actually want.

Crowd Power: The Future of Video Games

Five years ago in the summer of 2009 a single independent developer released a small alpha build for a game that he was working on in his spare time. Two years later, the full release version of Minecraft rolled out amid a tidal wave of excited gamers. It could be said that Markus Persson single-handedly pulled indie video game development into the lime light.

Building a Niche

The concept of letting players shape and build a game world in a sandbox environment is far from unique at this point in the game industry. While Minecraft popularized the idea with its simplistic visuals, similar games existed before and continue to exist afterwards that employ related gameplay elements.

Our interesting journey started several years ago when I decided to enter a story contest and wrote the novel "The Skies". The novel won the contest and it was an initial small victory, but still a very pleasant one.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is Too Easy (and That’s Just Fine)

In the age where Dark Souls reigns supreme, Dragon Age: Inquisition can seem staggeringly easy. The last two weeks has seen conversations about the game dominated by harsh critiques of its difficulty. All you have to do is hold one button! critics claim, then collect your loot. The thing is, that's not totally inaccurate, even if it does ignore huge swaths of the rest of the game. But you know what? I don't much care. And do you know what else? Neither should you, and here's why.

All About Early Access Modules

During today's Eternal Crusade Twitch stream, Miguel, Katie and the rest of the dev team are going to be making some very exciting announcements. I was able to speak to Miguel Caron, Head of Studio-Online at Behaviour, earlier this week, to get some details on what announcements were upcoming. The bad news first, there are still things to be worked out before the game's engine can be announced, so no new news on that front.

Alternatives to Guild Wars 2’s Living World

When Guild Wars 2 launched, ArenaNet informed its player base that it would be pursuing a fairly aggressive update schedule, especially pertaining to its Living World. Rather than implementing simple content updates or full-blown expansions, the developers would focus on building out the world and lore of the game while taking players along for the ride.
