Like L.A. Noire, but fun.

Cockroach review

One of the awesome things about this community is that I get to be surprised by games again. I have a stack of games in my Steam library that were generous gifts from you lot, many of which weren't a blip on my radar until they showed up in a little green envelope. I get to be surprised by the gift and then I get to be surprised by the game. It's a two-fer!

Don't miss: Unofficial PBE Patch Notes for 3/26/2015


ETA of Ashe, Gangplank Reworks and More

Not for a while. Gameplay changes haven't been completely locked down yet. Once they have, she'll then go into the queue for the required visual changes. It'll be a while as a result.

We're still planning to make that change. I'd imagine that'll be in 5.7, though can't guarantee that yet of course.

Dragon Age: Inquisition: A Sneak Peek at the Jaws of Hakkon DLC
Posted by MMORPG.COM News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 March 2015, 10:37 pm

A Sneak Peek at the Jaws of Hakkon DLC

Four months after its original release and on very short notice, Bioware is providing us today the first DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition. In fact, the lack of any announcement beforehand is almost as surprising as the rather steep price of 15 Dollars, which makes it the most expensive story DLC in the Dragon Age franchise.

Archlord 2: A Tale of Two Grinds
Posted by MMORPG.COM News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 March 2015, 3:59 pm

A Tale of Two Grinds

This new iteration - Archlord 2 -- is set in the same setting as the previous version but in an alternate universe, sort of. I wouldn't worry so much about it because all of the lore and imagery of the game is really just a wrap around a series of button-pushing mechanics that only become half-fun once the player has spent hours and hours grinding bad, level-based quest after another (trust me, you won't even look at what the quests say, they are that repetitive.)




General: Getting to Know Moonrise
Posted by MMORPG.COM News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 March 2015, 8:58 pm

Getting to Know Moonrise

Moonrise first caught my eye with its distinctive art style. Really, it reminded me of Free Realms, one of my favorite casual MMOs that featured some of my favorite graphics. I'm a bit of a fan of stylized graphics. I also noticed that Moonrise offered monster collecting and combat, not something I am normally a huge fan of, but it looked so nice I continued to get excited.

Who Do You Trust?

Last week, the TGN folks penned an article about some excellent Youtubers, and despite being titled a little misleading, it brought up a good point: who do you trust when it comes to Youtube videos? And yes, it's OK if it's not us here at MMORPG.com.
