RIFT Teases Subscription Only Progression Servers

It seems to be an increasingly common thing to look at different server types, progression servers, fresh starts.. and in a move that looks to capitalize on a lot of that and breathe some life into the MMORPG RIFT - Trion has teased the upcoming RIFT Prime service.

This will be an all new fresh start/progression server that will be subscription only with a heavily gutted cash shop.  In the press release it was stated that the only thing sold in the cash shop will be cosmetic.

RIFT at it's height was actually a pretty good game and especially it's end game PvE content was heavily overlooked.  Will something like this allow people to revisit the game in a more polished and controlled fashion without aggressive monetization holding it down?

Chronicles of Elyria Face Layoffs

Chronicles of Elyria has had to put forward a bit of a staffing correction after having anticipated a long term investor or publisher would come on board this year.  From 2016 to 2017 the team over at Soulbound Studio had doubled in size but without being able to secure additional support they've had to issue layoffs to be able to sustain the new employees based on sales in the store.

This news comes on the back of the criticism they have faced after dropping SpatialOS midway through development as well as selling the $10 000 Monarch Founder's Packs.  I believe each move they've made has been for the best of the game and their studio and these are the types of things that generally happen behind closed doors- conversations made without people being able to watch and listen.. but in a crowdfunded title aiming for transparency you get to see and watch as the money you so generously pledged is spent on things that don't pan out or are learning experiences.

Dauntless Sees Major Updates

As Dauntless makes its way through it's closed beta it's been seeing some slow and steady changes but at the end of December they pushed forth a huge update that on top of adding a new weapon- some new behemoths and damage numbers.. really decided to revamp both the progression system and most of the customization systems attached to weapons and armor.

It's taken me a few weeks but I've finally be able to mess around with most of the new stuff - fight the new behemoths and also get a feel for how the changes and stuff work and figure out how I feel about them.. and my more complete thoughts can be found below.

Amazon's Upcoming MMORPG Leaks (Rumor)

Earlier this week a post on reddit showcased a short, less than a minute long clip of an unidentified game.  The post was put into the subreddit for Amazon's upcoming MMORPG, New World and has had people speculating.

The timing of the leak also overlapped with a large email blast pushed out by Amazon's product delivery system if you had shown interest/preordered the game back when it was first teased in September 2016.

I personally hope that this isn't a true leak because I was not impressed and while it's in development if they are making trailers they are probably preparing to showcase this to people and potentially have something playable.. and after seeing even just the few odd seconds of gameplay.. it needs more time.

2021 at least.

Why Play Current Mobile MMORPGs

Today I wanted to take a second look at the mobile gaming phenoma that is the mobile MMORPG market.  I've speculated in the past about what kind of future this specific genre on this specific platform could hold... but I've long taken the stance that what exists currently... is... well garbage.

It hasn't been to my taste at all.

The thing that I have found odd though is despite my clear feelings about the reasons why I do not enjoy mobile MMORPGs currently- there are still a ton of people playing many of these games and the list of upcoming mobile MMORPGs is staggering: Tera, Black Desert, Lineage, Mabinogi, Runescape, etc..

..even Summoners War is working on a mobile MMORPG..

So after some reflecting.. after some hands on time with what I would consider one of, if not, the lead

What's Good About Lost Ark

If you follow MMORPG news as closely as I do then you know all about the title Lost Ark.  You've been hearing about it for years now on and off and if again, you are like me, your excitement for the game swells up massively when a new trailer or interview comes out and then slowly vanishes as no new information about the game or even a release date are anywhere to be seen.

To further put it into perspective Lost Ark has only been playable twice to the public and both times they were very short windows, ~10 days with time restrictions, and you not only needed to be selected to be able to play.. but needed a Korean account and needed to play on a Korean server on a Korean client.  Suffice to say.. there haven't been a ton of English opinions on the game which is compounded by t

Pantheon is Starting to Look REALLY Good

I have been loosely following the crowd funded MMORPG Pantheon for some time now.  I generally have a pretty neutral to negative opinion about most crowd funded projects but of every project, Pantheon was my hope, rather than something to get hyped about.  This came almost entirely on the back of some familiar faces working on Pantheon that had worked on Vanguard: Saga of Heroes a while back.

The problem is that up until earlier this week the game has looked... not to mince words... dated and terrible.

Before: https://imgur.com/ljsiGfk

(Uploading images weren't not really working for me for some reason) - It looks much better in action.

But this week we got a sneak peak at the first of many graphical upgrades.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar Review - Exquisite?! PC/PS4/XB1

Battle Chasers: Nightwar has now been released and I sat down and binged with it over the weekend on a provided for press account.  You may have seen screenshots and video clips of this over the past months as it's always been a title that influencers and gaming press have gushed about having come from a convention where it's been playable in part.

Based off a comic - you can expect some very heavily stylized and unique art in Battle Chasers: Nightwar

In something like 20 hours of playing Battle Chasers: Nightwar at the time of this post.. I have to say I'm somewhat impressed with this modern showing of a JRPG.  Mainly because traditional JRPGs just can't managed to hold my attention for that length anymore.

For my thoughts, without spoilers, on my time with the game.. chec

Lost Ark Character Creation - CBT2 Gameplay

The korean closed beta test of Lost Ark is now underway and while it was difficult to not only gain access.. but to also get it to work.  I'm in.  Over the next 10 days I'm going to try to capture some great footage and piece together what is happening with my trusty google translate skills.

We'll start off as every MMORPG reviewer does.. with a video of the character creator.

The game looks good.

I Played Ashes of Creation

Ashes of Creation is one of the most anticipated MMORPGs of the recent past having built a massive amount of hype despite not being playable in any form.  Hype based on ideas- hopefully, transformative ideas aimed at the MMORPG genre.

Well this past week it was playable at PAX West and was one of the sole reasons I decided to crash the convention to get my hands on the game.. and now I have the unfortunate duty of summing up my entire experience with a single word, meh.

It's not that it was terrible, it's not even that it was alright- it's that a game promising so much.. a game that is living from a stand point of flipping the whole genre on it's head.. even their meme slogan of "Make MMOs Great Again".. funnels into this experience which feels like every other ho-hum MMORPG that's out there and the worst part is the singular thing they did different in this gameplay showing was the worst part of the entire thing.  Which I don't want to go into too much d
