Honest Gamer Trailers – No Man’s Sky
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 August 2016, 2:15 pm
I hadn’t been paying too much attention to No Man’s Sky.  However, a bunch of people seemed to be excited about it before it launched… and upset about it when it was delayed… and have jumped onto the bandwagon such that it


Leaderboard: Which gaming genre do you play most often besides MMORPGs?
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 August 2016, 2:00 pm
My earliest PC games were space sims, 4X games, and then, naturally, RPGs — especially sandbox RPGs. MMORPGs seemed like a natural evolution for my inclinations (never mind my weird obsession with roguelikes). But it seems like a lot of MMORPG players come from other corners of the gaming industry entirely. I see a lot of folks whose gateway drugs to [...]

For the next while training is focused on rounding out some of my skills. The plan is to get some of those longer skills to train up to at least Level 4 and some of the shorter skills to train to Level 5, so lots of 9 and 10 day trains with a few 3


Colonizing the 30-Minute Session
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 August 2016, 1:33 pm
I’ve been playing a lot of Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO as the kids call it) in the last month or so. Trading really has freed up the time I used to spend ratting in Eve. Really, you can’t ask for two games that are more different


World of Warcraft’s Stormheim stars you in a Norse epic

If you are fascinated with World of Warcraft’s winged Vrykrul, then your first stop in the Legion leveling process should definitely be Stormheim.

It’s basically a Norse [...]

Welcome along to another advice-filled edition of Guild Chat for a double-bill of advice for better facilitating junior players in guilds. I received two similar requests that centre on how to best incorporate young players into guilds, so I thought I should roll them into one article that tackles the issue at hand as framed by both a parent and [...]

Have You Played… Battlefield 1942?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 August 2016, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. We take it for granted now, but in 2002 I was still impressed that Battlefield 1942 was a multiplayer game that let you fly planes and drive tanks and jeeps. I was even […]

One Shots: Ruins in the jungle

Could Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns’ greatest achievement be in its architecture? Even though I haven’t played it, I certainly have heard a lot from fans about the spectacular sights and designs of one of its jungle cities. “Ten months later, I still can’t get over how pretty Tarir is,” Hugmonster posted. And remember, kids, even pretty cities need [...]

The Daily Grind: Do you have to reach the top of an MMO to really understand the game?
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 August 2016, 8:00 am
We all play MMOs in different ways, and I personally tend to play to reach the top. It’s no shock if I tell you the stuff that I dislike in endgames, since I’ve been ranting about those things for nearly a decade now, but the point is that I reach that top end first and foremost. If I describe myself [...]

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for the same thing as every other Sunday. That’s not so bad. Let’s begin the traditions by rounding up the week’s best writing about videogames. Apparently some people are living in vans and making videogames while travelling around. This is interesting, though these stories (person does X and makes games) are going to […]

Ubisoft is shutting down the free-to-play 'Ghost Recon'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2016, 8:03 pm
Free-to-play games based on popular franchises were a huge trend for awhile. But, as Microsoft showed us this week by canceling Halo Online for Russia, there are no guarantees for success. Ubisoft is following suit and shutting down Ghost Recon Phantoms, formerly known as Ghost Recon Online. As Gamasutra writes, this was the publisher's maiden voyage into the market when it launched back in 2011.
