'Knights of the Fallen Empire'
Man, I'm surprised Star Wars: The Old Republic is still trucking along. You have to give it to BioWare (and to some extent, EA) for staying with it after its mixed reception at launch, so-so expansion packs, and its tran...
Plus, a Pokemon-esque minion game
I haven't been playing Final Fantasy XIV as much as I'd like, mostly due to the content drought and other obligations. But that will change when patch 3.1 hits, which is set to bring a ton of new activities to the game.

Do we make you thorny, baby?
Yo, check this out. Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns came out last Friday and I got ten codes for it. I bet that's more than you have. Lucky for you, I'm a super nice guy.

This one works over water, too
Are you tired of hearing news about Back to the Future day yet, especially now that it's technically over already? If you are...well, I'm sorry, but hey, this one might even be cool, because it comes from even further into th...
New business model for the 2016 release
You may not know Black Desert Online by name, but you might recognize its impressive character creator; that Tom Cruise lookalike makes me laugh to this day. The game itself, a massively multiplayer action-RPG, has been playa...
That launch that happened four years ago
Remember Trion’s Rift? I really liked it; it had a lot of excitement behind it before release, and then when it came out people seemed to forget all about it. The jump to free-to-play seemed to help a bit with getting ...

Super-duper underwear is now a thing
I don’t know what the developer of TERA is doing… but I like its style.

But watch out for pirates
Bossa Studios (Surgeon Simulator, I am Bread) is making an open-world MMO about building airships, flying them to floating islands, and screwing over others (probably). You interested?
The developers were in town, so we sent Rey to take a look at that game, Worlds Adrift, and he put together this in-depth video with narration provided by designer Luke Williams.
Born free, as free as the wind blows...

Clunky, but fascinating
One game I did not expect to see during my hands-on time with Project Morpheus PlayStation VR, was Final Fantasy XIV. I hadn't really heard anything about it being playable at TGS, so when I headed into the press section and ...
Nice art style!
Korean MMO Blade & Soul was confirmed for Western release three years ago and it's finally coming to fruition. NCSoft has scheduled betas this year ahead of the game's early 2016 launch. The first starts October 30. Purc...
That's when it goes free-to-play
Before WildStar released, I planned on playing it. Really, I did!
But like so many other MMOs before it, when the big day arrived, I was preoccupied with other games and lost interest. With the relaunch closing in, I suspect ...
Heart of Thorns still a paid expansion

In a newsletter, Spry Fox d...

Slowly catching up to the PC version
It was only a month ago when Rise of Tiamat, the fifth expansion for the free-to-play MMO Neverwinter, was released on Xbox One. At the time, I noted that while it was a decent update, it still meant the Xbox One version of t...
