Power Rankings - MMOGs Currently In Beta

If we were to count all the MMOGs and quasi-MMOGs presently in various stages of testing, I have no doubt that the total would have three digits. Naturally, they'd differ widely with respect to how much interest they are generating. Frankly, we'd find a fair number that are effectively invisible, unknown except to the most ardent industry observers.

Chronicles of New Eden - Chance Ravinne Gets His Revenge

When most people were watching the fireworks on the cool evening of July 4th, Chance Ravinne, stealth bomber extraordinaire, was making his own. Where many prefer to beat their chests and flex their muscle flying some of EVE's largest, most expensive ships, Chance prefers the silent approach. He is dagger in the night, the cheetah in the reeds; waiting for that one moment a pilot drops his guard.

It’s Finally Coming to America

Some might say that 3 years is too long to wait for an Eastern bred MMORPG to come to the West. In the case of Blade & Soul, it seems like the long detour to an English client has only created more pent up demand for the Wuxia-themed game from NCSOFT and Team Bloodlust. And we're happy to announce that Blade and Soul is indeed launching as a F2P MMORPG in the US and EU this winter, with a closed beta to begin this fall. The wait, as it were, is almost over.

Hands On with Blademaster, Force Master and Summoner

The Free to Play MMORPG from Team Bloodsport and NCSOFT has a lot of pent up demand behind it, and we got our hands on the Force Master, Blademaster, and Summoner classes to give you our first impressions.




Elder Scrolls Online: Is Zenimax Being Secretly Transparent?

Is Zenimax Being Secretly Transparent?

One of the best things a game developer can do is get direction from those who play it. While a developer may have passion for the game they are creating, they will never understand the game itself like those who play it day in and day out. We play the games for a lot longer than any developer. So of course we all have feedback and design concepts that we feel could improve the overall quality of the game.




Camelot Unchained: A Pet Class That Isn't a Pet Class

A Pet Class That Isn

How do you make a pet class for a game that is being built for large scale open world pvp battles? As much as I love them (and have loved them since I first dabbled in "Creature Handler" way back in Star Wars galaxies) pets in any game are hard to get right and in a PVP game they can be downright game breaking! When I heard CU was going to have a "pet class" stretch goal my skeptical pager started buzzing!

Yippee Ki Ay in Outer Space

When the world first heard about Double Damage Games founded by former Torchlight and Diablo series veterans Travis Baldree and Erich Schaefer, the safe bet was that they would be hard at work on another demon-infested universe straight out of the action RPG genre. All that can be said is "boy were we all wrong".
