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.


After: https://imgur.com/7Sc0kGX

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

$400k MMORPG Speed Raid Competition


At this point we've all seen the huge prize pools that different esport titles can muster year after year.  Games that usually have you or your team head to head in a clash in real time vs another individual or team.. and while these are great, growing up in the fierce competition that is remaining relevant or being on the first page of WoWprogress or being the top guild on a server has taught me you don't need to specifically attack the enemy.. to have an opponent.


Enter Crusaders of Light and their MMORPG speed raid competition.  A time trial of sorts.  Fastest time- wins.. and wins big.  $400 000 is on the line for the top place team with no 2nd or 3rd place prize.. winner takes all.  The catch- this is a mobile/Facebook Gameroom game.

FFXV Coming to Mobile, PC & Getting Mod Support


There is a lot of criticism thrown around over what has been part of this "Final Fantasy XV Universe"; re-skinned versions of Mobile Strike.. one of the most exploitative mobile games around, a fishing VR stand alone title, anime shorts, CGI film... all this while the base game of Final Fantasy XV felt a little.. undone?  Too much icing and not enough cake.


What is hard to see is just how many holes have been filled in the game at this point as many people don't replay games that can take upwards of 100 hours to even see what was fixed or how much has been added- aside from just the DLC.  It may not stand as one of the greatest in the series.. but Final Fantasy XV is no longer garbage tier.  It's a great game that I would recommend.. but also urge you to wait unti

Black Desert Teases Mobile Version

Pearl Abyss today released a teaser for their upcoming mobile version of Black Desert which looks much better than it has any right being.  The teaser is only 30 seconds long but shows signs of fishing and other life skills, pvp and grinding as well as world bosses with multiple other characters there.


There isn't a ton more information about it as of yet but it's definitely something to keep an eye on.  For a look at the teaser and my thoughts as well as some other gaming news; check out the video below.





For just the official teaser trailer online:

Are Mobile MMORPGs the Future


Today we tackle a topic I have reluctantly avoided thinking about directly as I quit MMORPG after MMORPG while still remaining a loyal and consistent (daily) player of a couple mobile games.  Now that statement alone may cause people to lose all respect from me as a gamer.. and even if I tell them I cut my teeth on Asheron's Call and Everquest.. it won't be enough.


I'm part of the problem.



The real concerns come from the fact that the problem is not only growing.. but the divide and prejudice towards mobile gaming blinds current users from taking it seriously.  Which unfortunately is a problem companies and developers don't have as they see money, market and numbers.


So if I readily admit that most MMORPGs on the mobile are garbage.. will you admit that the idea of Runescap
