The video games industry is one of huge size and significance. In fact, it is now generating more revenue than the movie and music industries combined, with global video game revenue sitting at an estimated $91.5 billion, in comparison to the movie industry’s $38.6 billion (global figure) in 2016 and the music industry’s estimated $47.5 billion. It was three years ago, in 2015, that video games surpassed these two other entertainment powerhouses. Gaming encompasses a lot of different genres and platforms, from MMO games played on high-end PCs and gaming laptops to casual puzzle games played on affordable mobile devices. It’s clear that there are all manner of ways for developers to cut themselves a slice of the lucrative games industry pie and make a game that best reflects their creative talent. With so much at stake and with there being so many ways to get into the games industry, it may come as little surprise that thousands upon thousands of new games are … [Read more...] about How Do Game Developers Identify Market Trends?

Play LOTRO for freeBy 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. As I was exploring Northern Mirkwood and going through the new Christmas quest recently, I found my thoughts had turned to evaluating the game’s status as an aging MMORPG. I mean, all MMOs age (if they’re fortunate enough to launch), and not every title can remain young, hot, and popular forever. But that … [Read more...] about LOTRO Legendarium: Is Lord of the Rings Online aging well?
Yesterday’s City of Titans update was… pretty horrifying. Fortunately, today’s update is probably more like what backers had in mind, as Missing Worlds Media has posted several minutes of footage of the upcoming superhero MMO’s elaborate character creator. 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. And the hair! We got our first look at the character creator about a year ago, and a quick comparison makes it clear how far the tool has come in that time, in spite of the setbacks suffered by the team last fall. Check out the whole video below. It’s not Issue 0, but it’s something. And here’s last … [Read more...] about City of Titans demos the current state of its elaborate character creation
