Moba’s are really hot right now, the massive commercial sucess of League, Dota, and to a lesser extent their dozens of clones and imitators have spawned a wave of indie and AAA moba type games. I myself am a huge fan of Overwatch, Blizzards shooty moba, and Paladins, a similar game from Hi-Rez studios. So […]

As many of you know, I was a huge fan of the Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War novel by Christie Golden. Unsurprisingly the events in that book and seemingly the following title Vol’jin Shadows of the Horde (I haven’t read it yet but it does seem to fit the current WoW story) fit into actual […]

Trion Worlds, creator of Defiance, have announced the first details on DLC for their epic MMO Sci-fi shooter. For the Season Pass holders, you should know the deal by now, you will get 5 DLCs at a reduced price. But the question always remains: Is that content going to be good enough to warrant my […]
I really wish I’d gotten on the Neverwinter wagon sooner with the wealth of content out there now. It’s been awhile since I’ve been this eager for a title to be released and it just keeps getting better. On the games official YouTube channel, there are several videos that highlight the games various zones or […]
This being the fourth Beta weekend for Neverwinter right now I’ve been eager to get back into the game. I enjoyed the third beta weekend. During the week I did some homework getting to know Cryptic’s Star Trek Online so I could relate between the two games. The two do have their similarities but they […]
The new free to play Neverwinter MMO let beta testers give the game a whirl a few weekends back and I was lucky enough to get to be a part of the action. Unfortunately, I haven’t tried their Star Trek MMO, but after enjoying my time in the Forgotten Realms I do plan to see […]
Like many MMO’s lately, Star Wars: The Old Republic is adding a limited free account to the subscription based game. Some content is restricted or closed off entirely, but if you’re eager to see what The Old Republic is all about, this is a great way to give in a whirl. Many see this as […]
Many fans were concerned when the first images of The Elder Scrolls Online were released. It looked and sort of felt more like Warcraft than The Elder Scrolls.
