Massively's end-of-the-year awards continue today with our award for the Best MMO Studio of the year. Every studio that runs an MMO in 2014 was eligible, even those who didn't launch anything this year, but whatever the studio did to impress us should have occurred this year. All of our writers were invited to cast a vote, but not all of them chose to do so for this category. Don't forget to cast your own vote in the just-for-fun reader poll at the very end. The Massively staff pick for Best MMO Studio of 2014 is... Continue reading Massively's Best of 2014 Awards: Best MMO Studio

At the very end of Final Fantasy XIV's Eternal Bond trailer on Tuesday, there's a small line imploring watchers to join 2.5 million adventurers worldwide. The last official word from the game on numbers was two million registrations back in April. It was easy to miss that line at the end, but it was caught by blogger Syncaine, and we reached out to Square-Enix to confirm that the game has indeed passed the 2.5 million mark in registrations. Registered accounts is obviously not the same thing as active subscriptions, but it's still a milestone for the game, especially with an expansion on the way in spring of next year. That's good news for both the Final Fantasy XIV team and the players who will have plenty of other people to adventure with....

ArcheAge is gearing up for its December update, and that means getting ready for a dragon. A long time ago in the in-game lore, the dragon Misagon tried to take the land of Erenor for himself and his kin, which led to the Nuon rising up and killing him because that's just a really rude way to move in. The dragons panicked and left, but one among them started planning for Dragon Invasion II: The Dragoning. That invasion is going down as part of the December update, with the somewhat uncreatively named Red Dragon leading his minions in an assault on Erenor. This is the same dragon who resorted to feeding on other dragons to get stronger, so you know he's... well, not a good guy. Go ahead and check out the lore post for a slightly less irreverent explanation of what flies forth on crimson wings, and get ready to undertake some dragon hunting in the game's next major patch....

We've all been there. We're dying to play an MMO and get our fix and sometimes it doesn't even have to be our go-to main game. Maybe your laptop can't handle it, you're out of town, or you don't have the time to play a bigger game - whatever the reason, sometimes you just need a browser game to scratch that itch.

Being a hero in real life is a lot tougher than you might think, mainly because there aren't any Ogres or Orcs running around trying to burn villages. That leaves only 1 other option, I'm not counting charities because you should be doing that anyways! I'm talking about video games. They let us don some flashy armor, equip over the top weaponry, and open up quest after quest. Continue reading...

CD Projekt Red has sent out a press release to let fans of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt know that the release date has been pushed back from February 2015 to May 2015. Calling The Witcher 3 "the most important game in our studio's history", the letter indicates that there are still corrections to be made before unleashing it on the world. Continue reading...

It's a very common sentiment to hear from people that they want more complex, hardcore MMOs. This is something that even though the age of the hardcore, demanding MMO, where things took forever to happen, where fast travel wasn't happening, and where lines built up around other players or in-game areas for buffs or completion, is mostly locked in player nostalgia these days. Continue reading...

Despite protests and endless traffic we made it into Brooklyn this past Thursday for the NYU Seminar on storytelling in Dragon Age: Inquisition. The panel included Creative Director Mike Laidlaw, Lead Writer David Gaider, and actor Freddie Prinze Jr. who does the voice of Iron Bull. The panel ran the full two hours and surprisingly the crew on hand gave a ton of information and advice to the students and press in attendance. Continue reading...
