Following the Beaten Path In March of 2017, South Korean developer Bluehole released PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds via Steam Early Access. A battle royale-style game, this multiplayer shooter puts approximately 100 players on a wide open map and tasks them with being the last player (or the last team or duo of players) standing. Players can get ahead by outgunning and outwitting their opponents, using their knowledge of the map and its various locations and vantage points to beat other players before they are beaten first.

By now, to me, Lord of the Rings Online is a comfortable, well-worn friend that always offers a very predictable and enjoyable experience whenever I return to the game. It’s absolutely bizarre to me to consider that we’re now in the Post-Ring era of the MMO’s storyline, yet it is all still going strong in its own way. One thing I cannot deny is that LOTRO is what most people would consider to be an “older MMO.” It’s been in live operation ever since April 2007, and once the game tipped over the decade mark, it joined other long-running titles that had long since shed their youth for maturity and stability. … [Read more...] about LOTRO Legendarium: Is Lord of the Rings Online aging well?
Fans of City of Heroes – and let’s be real, that’s pretty much everyone watching this game – are going to recognize a lot of the options here, with basic options on skin materials, height, and a broad costume color palette, but also some new additions, like arm length, if for some reason you really need to make your toon super disproportionate and creep everyone out.
