Columbus Nova: White Knight?

For a while now, I’ve been struggling with my response to the Sony Online Entertainment acquisition by Columbus Nova. Hope, fear, worry, curiosity; I have run a wide gamut of emotion!

Tavern Talk Or Why Garrisons Are Killing WoW

This article has been in the making for months. Quite frankly, since I first stepped into my garrison, something I knew very little about despite being a steadfast BlizzCon attendee. It’s no surprise that the implementation of player housing in World of Warcraft has caused some friction among the community. First off, anything will given 10 million [&hellip

Daybreak’s Commitment to Everquest

The new Daybreak Games Company has been the talk of the town among a significant portion of MMOspace since SoE’s acquisition by Columbus Nova was announced. What does this mean?

ArcheAge: Secrets of Ayanad Spotlight

Diamond Shores, the resting place of the legendary Ayanad Library, is no stranger to suffering and war. During the fall of Auroria, a magical catastrophe saturated the area with deadly energy, killing many of its inhabitants and turning large swaths of the region into the brilliant glass for which it is named. I must admit [&hellip

PAX South: Fear the Destructive Force of Dreadnought (Interview)

I assume you’re one of the key fans of Lore Hound. The type that links articles to friends and guildmates, attends your fair of streams, retweets and hits that Like button here and there.

Texniteia’s Tale: Foundations

I am a great fan of the ancient Greeks. They were masters of many things, although here and now I am concerned with two: architecture and wordplay. Ancient Greek, no matter which flavor you prefer, is a fabulous source for names – and so, when I was asked to write a series about my ongoing [&hellip

PAX South: Rebel Galaxy in SPAAACE (Interview)

It’s not that often that we here at Lore Hound cover a video game that isn’t connected to that world wide web thing that won’t go away. It’s really not in our DNA. But Rebel Galaxy is breaking that rule. Receiving an exception, if you will, due to the people behind it (and my penchant [&hellip

Pax South: League of Legends Photoshoot

The were many top-tier cosplays at Pax South – and don’t worry, they’ll get their due mention – but first, in the dark recesses of the exhibit halls, past long corridors that resembled lanes, into the “Nexus”… well in actuality, it was just a side hallway… BESIDES THAT! What matters is the metric ton of League of [&hellip

Landmark: Of Caves, Combat and Community

One of the things that I was delighted to discover upon my return to the land of computers was combat in Landmark. Now I can build stuff and fight monsters! I spent many hours with my husband traveling the lands, exploring, harvesting and killing as we went. We had a lot of fun, and are [&hellip

PAX South: Can Vainglory Begin the MOBA Explosion on iOS?

I’ve a small confession to make. When attending these type of events its largely required that you pick and choose your battles. Which games and genres to showcases, how to go about the interview (or editing) if you spoke with a wall and how to frame a line of questions that engages the audience but [&hellip

SoE to become DGC

RadarX, SoE community manager, just posted a puzzling message on a few of the sony game forums. Apparently SoE has been acquired by the investment firm Columbus Nova and will become Daybreak Game Company. I’ll admit my first response upon reading this was to wonder if April Fools had come in February! Or maybe RadarX’s [&hellip

PAX South: Tavern Talk or Where Did Multiplayer in MMOs Go?

In early MMORPGs, interacting with other community members in places like taverns and main cities were a necessity for advancement and survival.  Today, interacting with random players has become a rare event instead of the tools for survival.  Is this what we all wanted to happen?  Join Alex Albrecht alongside Larry Everett and Patrick Mulhern [&hellip
