[​IMG] E3 2019 dominated the headlines this week, even for MMO players, which isn’t always a given. We got news on Elder Scrolls Online’s next DLC, Black Desert’s PS4 launch, Phantasy Star Online 2’s westward journey, Dauntless’ record numbers, and Final Fantasy XIV’s Shadowbringers trailer, plus Guild Wars 2 dropped its next big raid. Read on […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] Can someone explain to me the appeal of dueling in MMOs? Does it step from a childhood steeped in Harry Potter’s one-on-one confrontations? Is it a pleasant distraction while hanging out in town? Does it settle whose epeen is the greatest, once and for all? Or is it something else entirely? While I contemplate that […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] Car racing MMOs have endured bumpy runs in the genre, including the late Project Torque (also called Level R and HEAT Online). Torque ran from 2006 through 2014, after which it was quietly taken offline. Offline, that is, until now. A bunch of fans are attempting to resurrect the racing game as an emulator with […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] Welcome back to another quick roundup of MMOs and MMO-adjacent titles you’ve probably never heard of (or at least have entirely forgotten about!). First up: World of Dragon Nest. MMO Culture reports that Nexon’s Thai branch is working with Eyedentity Games’ Actozsoft to publish the game in the region. I had forgotten this game existed; […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] With half the MMO community in a frenzy about the coming of World of Warcraft Classic this summer, many a gamer’s mind has turned back to ye olde dayz of vanilla WoW and the memories from the first go-around of that era of the game. Other than playing the beta itself, there are few more […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] It’s been hard to gauge whether Valve is feeling any pressure from the likes of Epic and Discord when it comes to its Steam presentation, but regardless, the company is working on enhancements for the platform’s app all the same. In a new post this week aimed at developers, Valve showcases exactly what the new […] Continue reading...
[​IMG] Can’t say that I approve of the flagrant disregard for deep diving safety protocols that are on display in our spotlight picture from Final Fantasy XIV, but at least reader Frank knows how to grab an arresting screenshot when the situation calls for it. Glug glug. “Diving a thousand thousand fathoms below the surface of […] Continue reading...

Seven years is a long time to play a game. The morning of August 25, 2012 was a glorious day as I skipped over the hills of Queensdale as Guild Wars 2 was unleashed on the world. We were ready for the casual MMO that you could drop in and out of whenever you liked and you'd still be able to keep up as the horizontal progression and cosmetic endgame meant that you could drop back in any time you liked. Legendary weapons were the long-term goal and Giganticus Lupicus was the benchmark for high end [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Continue reading...
[​IMG] I’ve never played Worlds Adrift, and in the near future I will never be able to do so. Despite this fact, I’m in no particular rush to try the game out before it shuts down. It definitely had some interesting ideas, but it spent so long with open PvP as the only option that any interest […] Continue reading...
