Paragon gameplay video revels new heroes

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 it comes as no real suprise when I see that the Epic games backed Paragon  is actaully a MOBA and not an epic...

Siege of Orgrimmar Coming Soon To WoW

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 World of Warcraft lore. Odds are if you’re reading this, you’re already a big WoW fan anyway, but if you’ve been out...

Editorial: Multi-Game Guilds, Good or Bad?

Com·mu·ni·ty: a unified body of individuals as a group of people with a common interest gaming together within a larger society <a guild> For many gamers, one of the most alluring aspects of online gaming is the opportunity to bond with other people.  Whether their interest lies in player-vs.-player fighting, roleplaying or end game raid content, being able to share those interests with other like-minded players is what keeps them engaged and interested.

Explore The Lore Of Neverwinter In These Videos

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 areas. The latest, Rothé Valley, focuses on a town taken over by Drow and even seems to carry over into the Underdark!...

Foundry Perspective On Neverwinter

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 are their own games as well. If you haven’t tried out Star Trek yet and you are a fan of the franchise...

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.

Star Wars: The Old Republic Adds Free Accounts Nov. 15th

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 a step back but I think it’s a fantastic idea. I liked the look of SW:TOR when my MMO gaming friend got...
