The Secret World, First Impressions

The Secret World

I’ve run across The Secret World quite a few times in my desperately bored MMORPG days, but time and again found a reason not to indulge. Recently, after a few gameplay videos on YouTube and a straightforward critique from a friend that knows what sort of games I like to play, I decided thirty bucks […]

The Ups and Downs of Warframe

Warframe

Now that I’ve played Warframe a lot more, I’ve gained some insight into the structure of the game and the means by which it acquires revenue. While I am most likely going to rant a fair bit about certain aspects, keep in mind that Warframe is still in open beta, thus subject to sudden content […]

Warframe, Good First Impressions

Warframe

For some reason, my tolerance for MMOs is critically low. I know I’m expected to spend a lot of time on them in order to actually start enjoying them, but I prefer games that provide players with a constant sense of progression. Warframe, to my surprise, does just that with an oddly intuitive equipment crafting […]

Downward Spiral Knights

Spiral Knights

Say I took a Medieval clockwork theme and slapped it onto Legend of Zelda: Four Swords, and accidentally spilled some annoying MMO elements all over the place. That’s Spiral Knights in a nutshell. A warning to MMO seekers out there: Free to play means “pay to actually enjoy” more often than not. In this case, […]

Guild Wars 2, Online Gaming is… Fun?!

Guild Wars 2

Once upon a time, I heard that Guild Wars 2 would change the way MMORPGs work forever. Me being me, I took the sarcastic approach and said, “Psh, sure, like they can make an MMO that’s actually consistently entertaining.” Secretly drawn by the frail hope of finally discovering a good MMO, I decided to buy […]

Hawken Makes Mechs Look Pretty

Hawken

Hawken’s still in closed beta, but I’m going to go ahead and chat about it anyway. As an avid fan of action packed high-customization action packed mech fighters, I personally found this one to be strategic, aesthetic, entertaining, and jaw-shatteringly frustrating. Could just be the fact that I’m not into heavily competitive games, or that […]

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Needs a Revolution

I’m not sure I entirely understand why Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is considered out of beta. I mean, I would assume that it’s because games out of beta can earn a bit of money by being sold as “complete games,” but Chivalry doesn’t fit that description. To be blunt, it’s a damned mess. The tutorial’s buggy […]

Maplestory, First Second Take

Maplestory

It’s about time I did a followup for that initial peek at Maplestory. I managed to get two characters to level 40 with no issues, so I’ve got some stories to tell. I also explored a few old/new areas that have apparently undergone some drastic changes in regarding lower level access. There are also major […]

Maplestory, Second First Take

Maplestory

Crap, man! What the hell happened since I was here last?  By my counting, the last time I legitimately played Maplestory was in the early 2000s. HOW many servers do they have up now? HOW much more fun has it gotten? The answer to both: loads. I’ll touch bases on the basics, then get on […]

Raiderz Needs More Players

Raiderz

Another closed beta review. Why do they keep letting me into these things? Geeze Louise. Anyway, this one’s called Raiderz, and from what I’ve played so far, I’m finding it pretty damned awesome. That’s vague, but it’s the impression I’m trying to leave you with. Bear with me, the nitty gritty is coming. In regards […]
