A Plague Tale: Innocence – Games could be the next Movies.

Before we Begin. Now before you jump into a movie loving frenzy of hatred and revulsion, i am not saying movies are a obsolete medium, I personally believe for as long as man endures there will always be a need for movies, plays,books, and yes games, all these share one common thread, stories, as Tyrion says in the Game of Thrones Final Episode, A story cannot be killed or conquered, it unites people, this is true, not because the dwarf

Path of Exiles: Diablo MMO?!

“Path of Exiles: Diablo MMO?!” Hows that for a click bait title? and while it is partially true, the game-play is one of the best Non-Diablo ARPG on the market, its free to play with an incredibly fair system, relying mostly on convenience and cosmetic sales to keep afloat, it sells no items which provide a direct competitive edge in its cash shop. Boring stuff out of the way, how is it? Its a very solid and pretty title, combat

Shroud of the Avatar : Bigger isn’t always better.

Traditional Concepts. Shroud of the avatar is not your everyday theme park mmo, in fact it doesn’t even follow the most basic mmo rule and that is levels, instead of levels for your character, you level skills individually via use, want to shoot better? then shoot more! want to ruin faster? then run around more, build those muscles. Even your archery arrows require crafted/purchased arrows otherwise they are useless, the economy is player driven and even the communities other than

World of Warcraft – Battle for Azeroth : King of MMORPGs still reigns.

The Return of the King Only one type of person says Wow isn’t the King of MMORPG, and that is someone in denial, it is huge, well supported, bursting at the seams with activity, with a lore that is more fleshed out than a dozen mmo combined, crafting, endgame, questing, social aspects, festivals, rp scene, literally everything is top notch. But its so pricy! Yes and no, an expac every 2 years and a monthly sub will set you back

Monster Hunter World : GOTY 2018 Contender

A vibrant living world. My first steps into the world of Monster Hunter World were one of child like fantasy, I have not played a game that filled me with such a feeling of an entire world to explore since my first steps onto the Island in Ark Survival Evolved, from small harmless birds to dinosaur like beings everywhere you turn the world is teeming with life, hide in bushes, push through vines, scale cliff sides, it’s all possible and so

Everquest II : More Dated than Retro

Too old for toys, to young for Boys. A saying my grandmother often used about my sisters when they were at that “awkward age”, between child and teen, when they didnt want a doll, but were too young to want makeup, the awkward gifting age that resulted in cards with cash and poorly chosen knitted footwear gifts.. don’t ask about the latter.. trust me. Everquest 2 feels like this, its clearly a much newer graphic engine than Eq 1, however

Skyforge: The Immortal MMO?

Become a Legend. Skyforge is not an exceptionally well known MMORPG, most gamers I speak with either 1) never heard of it, 2) presumed it was dead, both groups however are missing out on a fantastic free to play MMORPG, the combat is amazing, i nanobot stress just how smooth the skills feel, the agility based sword attacks, the lightning based attacks, from guns to divide wrath its all here, and every skill both looks and feels amazing to use. The game

DC Universe Online: A Super MMO RPG

Wait Isn’t that dead? Nope, the steam user base is only a small fraction of the playerbase, most use the non steam client, its been guesstimated that 95% of the playerbase use the client direct from the official website, as the servers allow crossplay between steam and non steam, its a far larger community than what steam reveals. You could be thinking of Marvel Heroes which sadly passed away in 2017. So is Ironman in there? You are thinking of

Convoy : Indie Garbage at its Best

Convoy is basically Indie Garbage, and that is why I love it, I like AAA titles as much as anyone, but sometimes i just want to sit down and play a really janky looking Indie game, that oozes Indie from every cell, Convoy is one such game, the controls while working feels rather unresponsive and a few pixels off to the left on every action, the graphics are retro but very well done and overall the UI looks like its

Wild West Online – Launched too Early

Yeehaw ridum cowboy! The cowboy MMO we have all been waiting for but didnt admit it.. well i have been waiting for one anyway, having watched all 14 seasons of bonanza over 7 times I have been chomping at the bit to roll around in the sand like Michael Landon and his 800 round 6 shooter, even with all my eagerness for this a Wild West MMO, I simply dont want WWO to release, not now, and not in 2018,
