ArcheAge Has Launched. But…

It seems all is not well in Denmark. Server problems are not unusual during a game launch; veteran MMO players have come to expect them. Every statement of “this is a horrible launch!” is met with “this is a standard launch!” I’m in the latter camp – I will never again take a day off [&hellip

PAX Prime 2014: H1Z1 “Hard to produce a true sandbox experience” (Video)

Sony Online Entertainment, like many developers of MMOGs, is a rather cagey developer.

Gabe Heiland on Swordsman’s Differentiation & Future (Interview)

The martial arts themed MMORPG is quite new to audiences in the West. A scant few games have made the transition from overseas. This is naturally relative to how many are currently available there.

PAX Prime 2014: En Masse Brings Tower Defense to ZMR (Video)

Tower defense mechanics in a first-person shooter game? Apparently an apathetic “Why not” complete with a shrug came from Yingpei Games when it was originally suggested.

PAX Prime 2014: Pokemon TCG Online Plays Gloriously on iPad (Video)

Pokemon has consumed far too much of my discretionary income. Ever since the launch of Red and Blue back in 1998 I’ve owned (and beaten) nearly every core game.
