Apocalypse Prep: Our H1Z1 Chat With SOE’s Jimmy Whisenhunt

We had the chance to sit in on a press roundtable with H1Z1 Senior Designer Jimmy Whisenhunt, who fielded questions about SOE’s post-apocalyptic zombie survival extravaganza. For fans starving for information, it helped to fill our food meter a bit, even if some of the answers were a little… unsavory. First steps. In his initial […]

Disguise Dropped: Our Sneak Peek At Transformers Universe

Will Transformers Universe have a smooth “roll out”? Or will it crash and burn? Jagex recently treated a bunch of journos to a preview of the game and, while I wasn’t in attendance, they made a video of the presentation available online to give us a taste of what the game is about. The video […]

Top 10 Most-Anticipated F2P Games of 2014

What’s the best Free-to-Play game? Almost assuredly, it’s the one that isn’t out yet. It’s that one that you’re looking forward to, that you’re watching trailers for, that you’re reading dev blogs about, that all your friends are in alpha/beta for and are telling you how cool it is… This year is shaping up to […]

Does Hearthstone’s Success Mean More F2P Is In Blizzard’s Future?

Eurogamer talked to Hearthstone Production Director Jason Chayes recently, who’s not only happy with how the game’s free-to-play aspects have been integrated but also also views the game as a “crucible” for understanding how a free-to-play game works – which could impact Blizzard’s other products. The interview itself covers the usual ground, with Chayes recognizing […]

Does Early Access Still Appeal To You?

So I Tweeted out something semi-amusing Thursday morning: I’ve got a game that’s in such a pre-pre-pre-alpha state, I haven’t even conceived it yet. Thinking of doing a Kickstarter. Hype train GO!!! — Jason Winter (@winterinformal) April 24, 2014 But as I progressed through the day, I started to wonder if it could actually work. […]

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 […]

326 Million Reasons Why Microtransactions Are Here To Stay – And How To Live With Them

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. The number’s been trending upwards for several […]

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 […]
