Korean MMO seems to outdo recent JRPGs

Just aesthetically, Peria Chronicles looks better than all these budget, tropefest JRPGs that fill time between Persona installments. And it's more impressive when you realize that this is a (Korean) MMO with ...

Cliff Bleszinski to draw $1 salary until new venture is profitable

No one can accuse Cliff Bleszinski of going into his Boss Key endeavor with the mindset that it's a cash grab. It's just the opposite, in fact. Until the company's able to turn a profit, Bleszinski will get almost nothing out...

Street Fighter IV Arena is a mobile title from Capcom and Nexon

Alright, so it's no Ultra Street Fighter IV, but Capcom is working on an upcoming mobile Street Fighter title in tandem with Nexon. Sounds a bit strange, I suppose, but since it's a mobile game it makes sense. Street Fighter ...

Extraction: A free-to-play FPS with some solid roots photo
Extraction: A free-to-play FPS with some solid roots
by Dale North

Many of my staff members wander off in the other direction after hearing things like "free-to-play first-person shooter." I get it. But I wanted to see Extraction's debut at PAX this past weekend because Splash Damage were behind it. The folks behind games like Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory and Brink definitely know their stuff, so I worked it out so that seeing Extraction was my very first appointment of the show.

Here's what's new with Vindictus photo
Here's what's new with Vindictus
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Vindictus has been out since October so this may be old news to some of you but I played it for the first time earlier today. I typically don't like MMORPGs or most RPGs in general because the whole “let's take turns hitting each other!” is annoying to me. Nexon's Vindictus, however, isn't really like what I was expecting and is more about the action. To the point that it reminded me a lot of Gauntlet.

Developer devCat Studios showed off some of the latest content to the free-to-play game such as PvP, new dungeons, a new playable character and new transformation powers for the heroes. I ran through a small dungeon as the new character who's main weapon is a battering ram. Yeah, ridiculous. The oversized weapon was a perfect fit for the new guy as he's over seven feet tall and 500 pounds of muscle.

Character's come with standard and strong attacks and now the new transformation ability increases a player's strength for a duration of time. While in the powered up state, players sport new glowing armor and weapons making them look like some sort of demi-God.

On top of some of the best looking graphics for a free-to-play game I've seen yet, the Source Engine allows for real physics so specific parts of your armor can be knocked off or you can destroy buildings around you. You can even do more than just hacking and slashing such as picking an enemy up by the neck and then repeatedly punching them in the face.

I can go on, but like I said, Vindictus has been out for awhile now so you can give it a whirl for free and judge the game for yourself.
