Overdue News Week: Neverwinter + Fury of the Feywild Review


So as I promised, it's time to dig into Neverwinter at long last and close out this week of overdue news.


I don't think Neverwinter needs any introduction, but for anyone who isn't aware: Neverwinter is the latest new title from Cryptic Studios, published by Perfect World Entertainment, that returns players to the familiar world of the Sword Coast as depicted in Neverwinter Nights. Though Neverwinter itself is only loosely based on NWN, the story is a faithful adaptation of the events happening within the Sword Coast with the guidance and blessings of Wizards of the Coast. The game uses the Cryptic Engine, used in other Cryptic games like Star Trek Online and Champions Online, and it employs a modified version of the 4th Edition D&D rules for character creation and the like.

Overdue News Week: Exclusive Neverwinter Interview


Welcome back to news catchup week, or as it'll soon be called, "I love Cryptic" week.


They ARE pretty damn cool.


During the early stages of Neverwinter's closed beta, I had prepared some questions to ask Andy Velasquez, Cryptic's Lead Producer, about Neverwinter and some of the things we might expect for the game's launch, which I had sent some time around March. As things got crazy, we bounced plans around until I was able to actually sit down and have a conversation with him on June 5th. While we had enough time to go through NEARLY all of my questions, we were sadly never able to finish up. So what I present to you today is a fragment of that exclusive interview.


With Neverwinter proper and Fury of the Feywild well in place, not to mention Shadowmantle just a week away, some o

Overdue News Week: STO Legacy of Romulus Review


Hi, everyone. It's your boy again, back from what must seem like the longest hiatus in ages. It's been a busy summer for me, both in regards to MMOs and outside of the gaming realm, so I haven't had the time to really sit down and get any pieces done for your entertainment. Nut I've been approached by a few people to do a few things, and most of these things I've been able to do while I've been "gone". I regret not having the time to post any of these things over the summer, but seeing as it's November I think it's time to start bringing you all into the loop now, before it's too late.


Over the summer I sat in on a livestream for EQ 2's "Scars of the Awakened" game update, as well has made a brief attempt to try Final Fantasy XIV's closed beta. I'd talk at length about Sc

[Exclusive]EverQuest: Veil of Alaris Hands-On BONUS


 

Ohoho, we're not done yet. You see, I love my fans so much that I'm not about to JUST give them something that every other website gets. You guys get the premier package. The works. The cream of the crop. You guys are getting hands-on coverage that no one else has. And I'm doing it because I love you, and because EverQuest's 18th expansion, Veil of Alaris, is just that flippin' awesome. Unlike readers of every other video game website out there that's covering this monumentous milestone, you guys are going to get info on three other brand new zones, a new feature that I can't believe nobody's talked about yet, and several dozen screenshots -- some of which you won't find anywhere else, because I got them on request.

Quite frankly, the new zones that I requested

Everquest: Veil of Alaris Hands-On Part 2


 

MMOsite's Quest! has been all over EverQuest's monumental 18th expansion, Veil of Alaris, and today the vague spoilers have come to an end. Players of this classic MMORPG might have already had a week and change to explore the brand new expansion, but for players who haven't had the opportunity to try this new content out, you're in for a treat. Last week, EQ's Community Manager Eric Cleaver and I went on a tour of some of the zones featured in Veil of Alaris, and Mr. Cleaver was generous enough to disclose much of the new content that has come with this addition -- and it's more than just weird aliens, flying islands, and mysterious gods. From top to bottom, Veil of Alaris is an exciting expansion and a must-have for EverQuest players new and old, for it launched with a brand

EverQuest II Age of Discovery: Beastlord Gameplay Preview


 

Anyone reading last week may have noticed this Beastlord gameplay preview already uploaded. A small number of you may have even read it the first time around. Long story short, during my call with Amelia Lukiman and Dave Georgeson, news of EverQuest II's new free-to-play business model also came with some juicy tidbits about the new class to debut with the release of the Age of Discovery expansion: Beastlord. In a strange turn of events, it seems as though MMOsite ate my original article, and it is now and forever gone in the sands of mystery.

So, instead of ventuing in on a long and tedious preamble, we're going to try one more time and jump right back in. Here is what we know of the new class to appear in EverQuest II and how its style of play is very different from

New Screenshots and Details Released for LOCO: Evolution


 

This past Thursday, alaplaya (the publishers of the smash hit MMOTPS/RTS hybrid Land of Chaos Online) released some brand new screenshots for LOCO's upcoming expansion, LOCO: Evolution. In addition, they leaked a few details about what's to come with the new expansion, which is still in development.

The screenshots themselves mostly feature the brand new city that will be coming with the release of Evolution, called Arhonnas. Arhonnas is going to be a persistent city that will include NPCs that players can use to buy new equipment, a bunch of new quests, a common area that players can meet and chat in that's just outside the arena, and some gorgeous architecture that's going to remind players of WoW's Dalaran. Players will definitely want to get fighting in this open-ai
