For fans of the Battlestar Galactica, the frakkin universe of polygamist, polytheistic humans versus the monotheistic robotic Cylons is a clusterfrak of frakkin proportions. Now that the show ended and the spin-off, Caprica, is doing so well, what can fans of the franchise look forward to? Well, Bigpoint, SyFy and NBC Universal have something in store.

How about a free-to-play browser game? Yeah, yeah, we all know that F2P games have not done so well, but developer Bigpoint, who has plenty of experience doing browser based MMOs, and this one is special in that this is a very good looking game. Maybe it's because of the Unity Tech, the engine that pushes out some really fantastic graphics. Take a look at the screen shots: that's in-game on Chrome. And since this is based on a popular IP, it's already leaps beyond most other F2P games, at least in accessibility.

Graphics alone mean a lot, and the team is clearly proud of what they are pulling off. Seriously, this isn't some Zynga title. Players will have the option to choose to be Cylon or Human, and after creating an avatar, they will receive a ship and rock on from there. I was shown some mining elements to gain all the resources needed for life support, transport, and more. It seems like typical stuff for a space ship based MMO. However, that ends all that I saw. Big Point is preparing for the proper unveiling of the title at Comic Con, so fans who want more will have that to look forward to. Frak yeah.

At $10, yeah, Guild Wars 2 is worth playing

As a casual MMO player, I've always liked the Guild Wars series -- no monthly subscription fits my lifestyle, you know? I don't have to feel guilty about wasting money by not playing "enough," whatever that is. If you're of a...more

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (Patch 2.5)

Final Fantasy XIV has come a long way. Although there wasn't any real endgame content to speak of when A Realm Reborn launched in its 2.0 incarnation, Square Enix worked hard to deliver in 2.1, and has continued to deliv...more

Surprise! Elder Scrolls Online is dropping the fee for existing subscribers, console version dated

When I reviewed The Elder Scrolls Online back at launch I thought it had potential, but not enough to keep people paying for subscription time. Plenty of MMOs have enjoyed a subscription-based model, and games like ...more
