I’ve never been a console-first kind of gamer, so I’ve never felt a great pull to invest heavily in consoles, even when more major MMORPGs began setting up shop there. I dabbled a bit with things like Free Realms and DC Universe Online on my PS3 back before the PS4 was king, but I much preferred PC. And now that I have a Switch, well, there aren’t that many MMOs or online titles on it yet anyway, but even for games like Warframe and Diablo III, I’d just rather stick with my trusty keyboard and mouse and comfy chair. But all that said, there are some MMOs I think would be suited to console, so much that I’m surprised they never got there. For example, why the heck is Guild Wars 2 not on console? That’d be the perfect thing for ArenaNet to pull out of its hat right about now, right? How about Blade & Soul? MapleStory 2? Any superhero MMO? WoW can run on a toaster; why isn’t it on Xbone? Which MMOs do you wish would come to console? Every … [Read more...] about The Daily Grind: Which MMOs do you wish would come to console?

With 2017 drawing to a close and 2018 rushing up to meet us, the Massively OP team has regrouped for another round of bold and goofy predictions for the year ahead. We’re feeling pretty good after our fairly successful predictions from last year! What’s in store for the MMO genre next year? Here’s what we think. Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): OK, this year, for sure, Star Citizen will finally come out, but again, it can’t live up to the hype. It may be serviceable at best. Chronicles of Elyria may get its MUD online, but I can’t imagine much more than more demos of the MMO proper. Daybreak will retire Planetside 2 because it exists but isn’t making bank. H1Z1 (both versions) won’t make any major comebacks as the survival genre’s time is passing. Yes, the arena play style for PlayerUnknown’s Battleground is up, but Daybreak’s baby’s probably too old already and losing its following. Warner Bros (which sadly owns Turbine) … [Read more...] about Massively Overthinking: Our MMO predictions for 2018
