What makes MMORPG's so successful?

This is a topic that I have had in my mind for a while now, MMORPG's have been widely successful in the past few years, however their popularity has started to slowly deteriorate in recent years. Looking closely at the genre as a whol...


It would seem i have no choice but to install Ultima Online just for a single screenshot... then I found out that EA are in charge of it. Well fuck me. Thank god it has a free trial.


What would you rather be? Badass Or Epic?


Just got to this point in Nier Automata. Game Of The Year, definitely!!! 10/10.


That feeling that you get when you write a blog with over 4000 words and you have no idea how to get the images...


So I need help. Both Fraps and Nvidia Share are garbage, I need suggestions for a recording software that can record Painkiller smoothly with good sound quality and without cutting out half the recording and pasting the beginning of the recording.


If I could have any theme song... it would be this


Just realized that I still can't run DOOM on PC with my Graphics card... I give up... seriously. Well at least it will run Bannerlord... I hate what gaming has become.


I feel the powah!!! My Pc just got pimped out with this new I5 6500


Just finished streaming Nier Automata, pretty long one though so you'll want to bring popcorn.


Well I finally gave in and got Nier Automata on PS4... I got it from PS store so I paid more than I should have paid for it but fuck it, I can't use my PC so I might as well treat myself to a new game instead and I don't want to wait for a physical copy.


Looks like my CPU is on its last legs... damn if only I knew stuff about computers...


What is the worst console generation? My top 3: #1 Seventh (2007 - 2014) #2 Eighth (so far) (2014 - ???) #3 First (1972 - 1976)


What is the best console generation? My top 3: #1 Sixth - (2001 - 2007) #2 Fourth - (1991 - 1997) #3 Fifth - (1997 - 2001)


Just admit it guys, Europe are the future of gaming.


Nvidia Share just cut out on me during recording... right when I was at the end of a level. God I swear I'm stopping lets plays because I really don't enjoy making them. However I'm going to finish what I started... But seriously, fuck Nvidia Share!


Don't mind me, just polishing shit...


MOBA games are all bad. DOTA, League Of Legends etc shouldn't exist. Why am I mentioning this now? Because I have more evidence to prove it.


Seriously, am I the only one who notices the similarities between Devil May Cry 4 and Grandia 2/3???


dammit i missed april fools day... too busy working...


The 3 Principles Of Game Design

Today I'm going to talk about my philosophy on videogames and what I believe to be the 3 main principles of game design. After seeing the saturation of the indie market, I've been led to believe that indie developers have struggled to...


Just another terrorrist attack... nothing to see he- WAIT THIS IS WESTMINSTER!? Everyone pay attention, this is important, political figures are at risk here!!! Forget all the people who got attacked by terrorrists elsewhere, they're just stupid plebs!

Read my reviews here:

Visit my Wordpress site here:

I will publish blogs on there earlier because it has a better editor (plus I don't have the Destructoid rules to worry about). I will still publish blogs on here though and I probably will post any top 10's exclusively on here, this site is merely a home for all of my blogs so that in case anything happens I can keep writing.

My Bio:

Just an outspoken fan of rpg's and gaming in general who likes to rant about first world gamer problems because there are so many.

My blogs mostly consist of reviews/rants of games of all generations, particularly rpg's. I try to blend my reviews with both facts and opinion so that people can see from my own experiences and decide for themselves. i will also tend to review older titles because i still believe that there are few people out there who haven't played these awesome titles and deserve to give them a chance.

Oh and as for some negative's you might point out, i can't spell for my life and my grammar is terrible. Plus i like to exaggerate my points a little to make things more fun, yet some people are dense enough to take them as fact.

Here is my response to those intelligent enough to point them out:

Heres my review rating system:

Masterpiece (Same as masterful but for overall score, will be based on opinion), of course it won't be perfect in every way but it will be close to perfect, no game is perfect.

Masterful - Perfect in every way (Formerly 9.5+) (definitely pick up the game if you are a fan of the genre)

Exceptional - Goes way beyond expectations (Formerly between 9.1 and 9.4) (definitely pick up the game if you are a fan of the genre)

Excellent - Does what it needs to and provides a first class experience (9.0) (definitely pick up the game if you are a fan of the genre)

Great - Does what it needs to, provides a high class experience (8.5-8.9) (recommended to all fans of the genre)

Good - Does what it needs to and provides a very enjoyable experience (was 8.0 - 8.5) (recommended to all fans of the genre)

Satisfactory - Does what it needs to, provides an experience which is just enough to satisfy the player (Formerly between 7.5 - 7.9) (Reccommended to read the review if unsure)

Decent - Does what it needs to, experience can very depending on the players tastes (Formerly 7.0-7.4) (Recommended to read the review if you plan on picking up the game to see if it's for you)

So-So (Now Mediocre) - Not for everyone, has some issues, may be worth a try if patient enough to cope with it's flaws (Formerly 6.5 - 6.9) (Reccommened to read the review if you're interested in the title)

Flawed - Alot of flaws, difficult to recommend, some may be able to pass them by but will require a lot of patience (Formerly 5.0 - 6.4) (Reccommened to read the review if you're interested in the title)

Awful - (Formerly 4.9 and below) (If you see this, don't pick the game up for this catagory)

Kill It With Fire - (Same as Awful but for overall score, based on opinion which in this case is usually right if you see the game, you know what to do, don't buy this and if you do, get some gasoline and a match)


Too Long (Legend Of Dragoon lol)

Very Long (Formerly 9.5 - 9.9)

Long (Formerly 9.0 - 9.4)

Quite Long (Formerly 8.0 - 8.9)

Decent Length (Formerly 7.5 - 7.9)

Quite Short (Formerly 6.5 - 7.4)

Very Short (Formerly 6.0 - 6.4)

Too short (Formerly 5.9 or below)

Worth Replaying?
