Aimless and Nameless: Did SOE Pull a Fast One on Landmark Founders?

What’s in a name? To some people, quite a bit, apparently. When SOE decided to drop the “EverQuest Next” part from Landmark’s title, it seemed like a reasonable move. “EverQuest Next Landmark” was a long, bulky name that invited confusion with the “real” EverQuest Next. A rebranding/renaming was all but required. But dropping the iconic [...]

Word Play: Black Gold Online Alpha First Impressions

How much can you learn about a game from a few hours in an alpha? Enough, I think, to get a feel for the general way a game plays, if not the specifics of how everything will operate. You’ll hear, “They can still change it, it’s only an alpha (or beta),” but that usually just [...]

F2P Doing Just Fine On PlayStation 4

In case you missed it, Sony had a few choice words to say at last week’s GDC about their free-to-play business on the PlayStation 4. By and large, the words of choice were “very good.” As reported on GameSpot and elsewhere, free-to-play revenue on Sony’s consoles is up 50% over year-to-year, with 3-15% of players [...]

Microtransactions are big business and they aren’t going away any time soon. That’s the conclusion one can easily reach by looking at the latest brief from market research firm SuperData, which puts a number on the console MT business, and it’s a big one: $352 million per year.

Free to Play, The Movie: The Thrill Of Victory And The Agony Of Defeat

I’m an e-sports skeptic. I know, huge tournaments draw huge crowds and have huge prizes. But try to describe “jungling” or “ganking” to a typical American or try to convince them that a skinny 20-year-old is on the same level, professionally, as Peyton Manning or LeBron James, and you’ll be met with eye rolls at [...]

Round 2 of the Ultimate F2P Tournament: A By-the-Numbers Recap

And then there were 16. Only one-quarter of the games that started on this journey still remain, so we thought we’d reflect on some of the stats we’ve seen in the first two rounds with a few “best of” lists: Most votes through two rounds: SMITE – 18,965 Mabinogi – 12,648 Warframe – 7571+ Team [...]

4 Reasons Why Buying Levels Isn’t The End Of The World

It’s fully out in the open now. Blizzard will offer players the chance to fork over $60 to buy a level 90 character in World of Warcraft, and you’ll also get one included with a pre-purchase of Warlords of Draenor. It’s a controversial move, to say the least, though one that’s hardly unprecedented. A small [...]

Housing Crisis: Is MMO Housing In Need of Renovation?

Player housing is in the works for Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Doing Free-to-Play Right: An Expert’s View

When it comes right down to it, I’m just a guy. I say things, things that I think are right, but it’s not like anyone is busting down my door to hire me to help them make their free-to-play games (not yet, anyway). So it’s refreshing to see someone who is routinely hired to help [...]
