(Note: This review contains spoilers for Borderlands 2.) Telltale Games is easily one of my favorite game developers, proving the viability of AAA point and click adventure games in a world that had long since left the genre behind. The company spearheaded and successfully proved the viability of monthly episodic games, allowing players to buy the entire season with the added bonus of getting it all on dvd at the end for simply paying the shipping cost. The idea of an episodic, intelligent, narrative take on the Borderlands universe is one that excited me greatly when it was announced earlier this year. I have a fondness for the Borderlands series, and while the series has progressed quite a bit since the first title, the games have never delved deep into the world in which your vault hunters live. All Borderlands needs to bring out its underbelly is a capable set of hands. Tales From The Borderlands is set after the events of Borderlands 2. Handsome Jack is dead and the Hyperion … [Read more...] about Less Massive Review: Tales From The Borderlands Episode 1
Game of throne review
You’re going to see this again in my Set review, but I firmly stand by this: I don’t think Horus is a warrior. Horus is incredible, and if I have a feeling the heals on his 3 are going to catch a nerf bat before too long. The heal is not too bad, especially once your opponents start building anti-heal. If they don’t build to counter a tanky healer, that’s not my problem. Perhaps Hirez is moving away from class-based designs, which is awesome. I go into this thought in a bit more detail in my Set write-up. Horus is really just a guardian that’s not as tanky as his brethren, nor does he deal guardian damage. Horus is one of the two gods released in this patch, and since it’s a double release for the first time, I had to pull double duty and work on both gods at once. I focused on Horus first, because his kit appeals to me more, and has a playstyle that synergizes with how I approach the game. So let’s talk some SMITE! Horus is the son of Osiris … [Read more...] about SMITE – Horus God Review – No Justice, Just Us
In its first week of release, the medieval first-person combat game Mordhau sold over 500,000 copies, and over the weekend it peaked at 60,000 concurrent players on Steam. Many games never reach those types of milestones at any point during their lifetime, and this feat is even more astonishing when you consider that success has come to the freshman title of small indie developer Triternion. advertisement That said, in the week since release Triternion had to deal with several hiccups, a few speed bumps, and even a brick wall or two. What does that mean for people interested in picking up a copy of Mordhau? We explore that question in our Mordhau review.Before we thrust ourselves into the combat mechanics, let's touch on the more mundane things - graphics, UI, matchmaking, and other such nonsense. Mordhau is built on the Unreal Engine 4. Visually the game does not disappoint. At the highest video settings, the maps are beautiful. They are well designed with open areas … [Read more...] about Mordhau Review
Never let it be said that no crowdfunded MMOs ever succeed: This week week in MMO crowdfunding, Albion Online launched for what one might say the third time, this round going fully free-to-play and seeing its concurrency (and review-bombing and lag too) spike into the heavens. Meanwhile, we dived into the current state of Crowfall in our PvP column, got a peek at Star Citizen’s criminal system, cheered the announcement of Elite Dangerous’ next big thing, and saw movement on Chronicles of Elyria’s land rush. And as for Oath, the MMO that hit Kickstarter earlier this month asking just $35,000? It’s raised nearly $6000 of that ask so far. Read on for more on what’s been up with MMO crowdfunding over the last week, plus our roundup of all the crowdfunded MMOs we’re following! Albion Online Recent MMO crowdfunding news Albion Online is officially free-to-play today – and already ‘under heavy load’ - Fancy getting your peekay on in an … [Read more...] about Make My MMO: Albion Online is free-to-play, so of course the review bombing has begun
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!
