Beautiful Little Casual Mobile MMO

Dawn of the Immortals, launched worldwide August 1 by publishers Perfect World Entertainment is a new 3-D MMO for iOS platforms (Android in the near future, they tell us). It is a casual MMO. That's opposite of Hardcore, so all you hardcore MMO fans can stop reading so you don't have to make fun of it. It requires iOS 7 and recommends at least an iPad3 or iPhone 4s to play. I played it on my new iPad Air and it ran beautifully.




Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn: Diving Back Into A Realm Reborn

Diving Back Into A Realm Reborn

Of all the MMO's from AAA studios that have come out in the past 12 months I was probably least excited about Final Fantasy XIV: ARR. I've been a lifelong fan of the FF franchise but after the original XIV I was a member of the "fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice - can't get fooled again" crowd. Because I did not have high expectations for the game upon its release I was pleasantly surprised when I set out to review it.

Say Hello to the Cleric, Elementalist, and Tempest

It's been a while since we've heard much from SOE on EverQuest Next. Much of the past year has been about Landmark, the building and creative cousin of EverQuest Next. For months, EQN fans have been asking "when are you going to work on EverQuest Next?" What Dave Georgeson told us on Wednesday was that they have been working on Next the whole time... and it's called Landmark. Read on to find out just what he meant...

Wishing on an SOE Live Star

What I'm hoping will come out in SOE Live is partly a rehash of my earlier E3 wishlist. That said, with slightly more information available now, this SOE LIve wishlist is going to get some validation very shortly after publication. Will I get anything right this time?

What’s Next for PlanetSide2?

We had a chance to listen to Matt Higby and Tramell Isaac expound on some of what they've been working on over the last couple months with PlanetSide 2, and what we should expect to see in the next several months with the game. When they led with new loading screen art, I started to get worried. Needlessly, as it turns out.




EverQuest II: The Future of EverQuest II

The Future of EverQuest II

One might think, given that Sony Online Entertainment is actively building EverQuest Next in the form of Landmark, that the two elder EQ games would be going on cruise control as SOE shifts assets to focus on the new shinies. This statement could not be any further than the truth.




Landmark: Things Are About to Get Even More Interesting

Things Are About to Get Even More Interesting

Landmark is a game that was born of a need for Sony Online Entertainment to begin work on EverQuest Next and still be able to involve their players. With it, SOE hoped to achieve a bedrock of community that would bridge both games and allow them to give players unprecedented access to the development process. At SOE Live, Dave Georgeson, Director of Development for Landmark and EverQuest Next, spoke at great length as to what was in store for SOE's building game.

What’s Next for H1Z1?

When some of PlanetSide 2's best and brightest developers stepped away from the game several months ago to work on a new secret project, you sort of knew something special had to be in the pipe. It wasn't long before we found out that it was SOE's new survival horror MMO, H1Z1. No, it's not a game about rampaging STDs, but rather a game about shambling zombies.

Seven Years in Telon: An Analysis of Vanguard

I've always had a soft spot for Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, which closed its doors last week. Sony Online Entertainment's traditional high fantasy MMORPG represented to me an online world that had a tremendous amount of potential, but without the modernization and implementation required to compete in today's saturated market.
