Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns Reveal Event Recap

Posted by Jaime Skelton On January - 27 - 2015
By Andy Skelton A lone monument sits alone in the middle of an auditorium stage, vines and leaves draped across it. Above, a large screen with the Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns logo is prominently displayed. A screen on either side of the main one sit, teasing us with a simple background image as the crowd filters in. This much is certain: ArenaNet certainly knows how to set a literal stage. The buzz in the air is quite apparent, and people have already broken out the provided Guild Wars 2 branded...

Blitzkrieg 3 Press Preview

Posted by DizzyPW On January - 26 - 2015
Blitzkrieg 3 Press Demo By Darren Henderson (DizzyPW)   This previous week I had the joy of catching up with an associate of mine from earlier in my journalist career, Sergey Orlovskiy, CEO of Nival Games. In the past I tested out their runaway MOBA RPG hybrid, Prime World, a game that found great success in their native home of Russia. What I wasn’t aware of at the time was Nival had a longer storied history of game development, including a solo player real-time strategy franchise known...

PAX South Day 3 Recap: Moonrise, Broken Bots, & Dreadnought

Posted by Jaime Skelton On January - 26 - 2015
By Jaime Skelton (MissyS) and Andy Skelton While the third day of PAX was on a sleepy Sunday, that didn’t stop anyone from showing up and milking everything the show still had to offer. That final stretch of show is when you learn to forget about your tired feet and lack of sleep and really dig in to make sure you don’t miss anything. Our day was hardly quiet and we ended with a real treat that left us talking as we walked out of the convention center for the last time this year. Moonrise There...
Pax South Day 2 Recap By Jaime Skelton (MissyS) and Andy Skelton   Saturday was the big day for PAX South, sold out well in advance of the convention. It certainly showed on the convention floor and every theatre was constantly full as some epic panels were underway – starting with the real header, ArenaNet’s presentation for Guild Wars 2.   Guild Wars 2 The big news ArenaNet hit us with is a brand new expansion for Guild Wars 2, Heart of Thorns.

PAX South (Texas) Day 1 Recap: Gigantic, PoxNora, and Cabal II

Posted by Jaime Skelton On January - 24 - 2015
By Jaime Skelton (MissyS) and Andrew Skelton   The first day of a convention is always exciting, but the first day of a first time convention is even more so. Even though PAX has been going on strong for many years now, this is the first year for PAX South, held in downtown San Antonio, Texas. Though the day was blustery outside, the halls were packed with gamers, geeks, and fans eager to help the convention kick off. While we took the first day a little light to make connections and scout the...

Creativerse Early Access Impressions

Posted by Jaime Skelton On January - 23 - 2015
By Jaime Skelton (MissyS), Senior Editor   I can’t imagine why any sane developer would decide to create a new sandbox voxel game. It isn’t a question of needing a different selection of games in the genre. It’s an issue of facing off against the behemoth that is Minecraft and its community. Like many other popular games, Minecraft has created a fiercely loyal and often defensive player base, and it is their words that carry heavy weight in the genre. If a Minecraft player claims a game...

Vindictus Review 2015

Posted by Mikedot On January - 22 - 2015
By Michael Sagoe (mikedot) It’s been several years since Nexon America unleashed their brutal action MORPG, Vindictus, onto the F2P gaming scene, and since then, the game has received several updates and expansions, including new heroes, new dungeons and even PvP content. With the most recent update featuring Arisha the spellsword, I figured it was about time to jump back into the world of Vindictus to see if this game is just as enjoyable as it was all those years ago. With my time spent replaying...

MMO Predictions 2015 – Cutting Corners and Burning Early

Posted by Proxzor On January - 21 - 2015
By Remko Molenaar (Proxzor)   Last year I predicted that the uprise of card games would change the industry, and I am happy to say that I was right. Hearthstone got insanely popular after the beta, and if you look at streaming platforms like twitch, it is one of the most streamed games of the industry. While some point to it as an extreme example, plenty of other CCGs have seen decent success, especially in the realm of mobile games. Just because you don’t see a ton of press coverage or advertising...
