The Best MMO Crossovers We’ve Seen So Far If there’s one thing us MMO players enjoy, it’s that of a good MMO crossover between franchises. To-date, many have tried them on a minor scale, such as promo purchase rewards for skins and other trivial goodies. But in 2018 and beyond, some studios have set the bar incredibly high, with tangible crossovers that players can experience either through PvE or more. So here are our favorite and best MMO crossovers we’ve seen so far. Final Fantasy XIV and Monster Hunter: World We had to start off with this one. Final Fantasy XIV and Monster Hunter: World – two Japenese MMOs that couldn’t be any different from each other. On the one hand, the former is a globally beloved JRPG franchise. The MMORPG is thriving and continues to offer hours of fun for players.

Change of Plans This morning I was all ready and prepared to go on an angry tear about the change to specs in World of Warcraft on Legion Alpha. Then I thought to myself… my blog has already hosted more than enough “I’m Angry at WoW” posts that I really did not need to add another one to the pile. I still think the idea is quite possibly the dumbest I have seen yet, but I figure if it does go in… I can either deal with it, or stop playing again and no amount of gnashing of my teeth is going to make a change.

In the meantime however I finally was able to pop into Blade and Soul and give the game a proper try. I talked yesterday about some of my misgivings…. of which there were many, so the game started off on negative footing before I even entered. Last night my friend Liore … [Read more...] about Blade and Soul Impressions
This past week we were caught off guard at the San Francisco Game Developers Convention to actually get access to some real MMORPG news that (for once) wasn’t under a hefty and shifty embargo. Well, I suppose it was still under embargo, but only through the weekend! At our private off site location NCSoft showcased the first localized look at Blade & Soul‘s Silverfrost Mountains update, an expansion that is bringing a little bit of something good no matter what your focus in Blade & Soul might be. Of course the story that impacts most everyone in this update is the long awaited arrival of level 50. It’s pretty universally agreed upon that the game’s eSports focus has been balanced and balanced well for some time around the level 50 level cap marker. This update should be a shining light of hope for those looking for more fair competition, or just those trying to survive open world end-game encounters. Luckily even if you aren’t planning to visit … [Read more...] about Blade & Soul Silverfrost Mountains and Beyond – GDC SF 2016 Preview
So all the way back in May of 2017, I made a video titled “The Best Free To Play Anime MMORPGs To Play RIGHT NOW In 2017!”. It has since gone on to gain almost 800,000 views, thousands of comments, and thousands of likes. Over the course of the year my likes and dislikes in terms of MMORPGs have changed quite drastically. I recall listing games like Maplestory, Eden Eternal and Twin Saga as Anime MMORPGs I thoroughly enjoyed, when in reality I believe those games no longer hold any semblance of relevancy. Stix did do a video on upcoming Anime MMORPGs just last month titled “4 Upcoming Anime MMORPGs You Absolutely NEED To Play In 2018 And Beyond!” if you’re interested in a few Anime titles to look forward to as well. Now, regarding what I believe should be listed.. Alright, so starting off at number 10 is Bless Online. Graphically speaking, Bless Online looks great. It does. There’s no denying that. It has giant beautiful open world landscapes, … [Read more...] about The Best Free To Play Anime MMORPGs To Play RIGHT NOW In 2018!
