World of Speed: A free-to-play online racing MMO photo
World of Speed: A free-to-play online racing MMO
by Dale North

World of Speed is a racing MMO that sets to accomplish a goal that no other racer has been truly successful with so far: making racers cooperate with each other. Slightly Mad Studios has 10 years in the racing game business under their belts, with games like the Need for Speed: Shift titles, Project CARS, and GTR2, but they say they're looking at other game genres for inspiration, including online first-person shooters.

Oh, and World of Speed is a free-to-play game.

Review: The Castle Doctrine photo
Review: The Castle Doctrine
by Patrick Hancock

My life's earnings are stashed away in my vault. Well, half of it. As an added security measure, I've given my wife half to hold on to and protect with her life. I've built my house in such a way that I feel pretty confident that my belongings are safe. At the very least, my wife and kids will be safe behind the protection of my pit bull, Tiny.

I come back later in the day to find that a few vagabonds tried, and failed, to steal my money. Their loss, my gain. They died, I thrived. I come back the next day and find that my walls have been sawed through, and my money stolen. I check on Tiny: drugged. My family? All dead, no, murdered. I have nothing left. I check the security tapes, though I'm not really sure why. I don't care for revenge, though I can't say the thought is absent in my mind. Standing in what's left of my house, I take it all in and kill myself.

You must watch this Elder Scrolls Online video right now
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Yes, it's a cinematic, but it's one hell of an impressive cinematic. Fan or not, you can't help but get excited for The Elder Scrolls Online after watching this eight minute long movie. Makes you really wish for an actual Elder Scrolls animated movie like this. At the very least, we may be getting more short movies like this based on how this one ends.

The Elder Scrolls Online will be out on April 4 for Windows and OS X, and in June for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate great voice work and after seeing the lineup for The Elder Scrolls Online, I don't think the game will disappoint in that regard. But going for big-name, recognizable talent runs the risk of ...
