General: My Problem with Fallout

My Problem with Fallout

My name is Chris, and I have a problem. In 2009, I realized that I don't like Fallout. I have tried, over and over, to connect with what gamers love in these titles and just can't. Games have been bought and rebought chasing the elusive dragon that is the post-apocalypse. I've made excuses, rolled multiple characters, and forced myself to play. I like Elder Scrolls, so why not this? This is my story.

Posted by MMORPG.COM News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 January 2015, 10:40 am

Early Access and the Airdrop Madness

Last night was a bit depressing. After HiveLeader's excellent first impressions and livestream video, I was pretty excited for H1Z1. Even knowing how Early Access goes and how alpha builds get wiped and are pretty buggy messes, I'll admit that the thought of a PVE sandbox zombie survival MMO has my interest piqued.

The Gathering Storm

Lichdom: Battlemage: Great Ideas, Mediocre Execution
Posted by MMORPG.COM News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 August 2014, 8:05 pm

Great Ideas, Mediocre Execution

Lichdom: Battlemage is one hell of a cool idea from Xaviant. Remember Hexen, the first-person shooter where you played a mage instead of some gun-toting action hero? That's the idea behind Lichdom, and for the most part Xaviant takes the idea in the right direction delivering a competent, if not fully-realized Action RPG. Read on for our full review.

World of Speed: Get Ready for a High Speed Ride

Get Ready for a High Speed Ride

I've always been a big fan of racing games. I'm terrible at them, but I love them. They allow me to play against other people competitively while not having to worry about disappointing super competitive, hardcore players who might be my teammates. So when I first heard about World of Speed I was quite excited. Unfortunately as I learned at Gamescom when I played it you are part of a team and you can let them down.

Is ESO Going F2P?

If you went to any ESO related community forums prior to launch you'd see a common topic being discussed, Will ESO go Free to Play? This topic sparked some of the largest debates I've seen in the MMORPG community. However, after discussions comparing the pros and cons of the F2P model, the majority of the Elder Scrolls Online community did not want the F2P model. They wanted ESO to be a subscription based game.
