I'll be perfectly blunt. It's freaking hard reviewing a MMORPG! Hours and hours of play, and I feel like I've just barely scratched the surface. Can I really give it a fair, critical score? I've invested over 25 hours, only reaching level 15 of the possible 50. I believe I am at least entitled to an opinion, but keep in mind that this review reflects my own experience, something which did not extend to the late game.
People have made fun of those who play WoW for many years now. The classic "how does one kill that which has no life" joke from South Park all those years ago is proof. Now, one player has unlocked every achievement in the game.
For people keen on the premise of DayZ, but unwilling to pay to take part in the game’s rather extended beta, Sony Online Entertainment’s H1Z1 sounds like just the ticket. An open world, large-scale MMO with zombies in it certainly sounds like something cast from DayZ’s mould. the biggest worry though, is that it’ll be free to play – which usually comes with excessive micro-transaction pitfalls. SOE however, has said that it most certainly won’t be pay to win. In fact, pretty much everything you’ll be able to buy is cosmetic.
Zenimax and Bethesda’s new Elder Scrolls MMO is available to all and sundry today, and to celebrate that fact the company’s released an infographic telling you all sorts of things about the game you would otherwise not even care remotely care about. Did you know, for example, that you’d have to slay 119,050 mudcrabs to reach level 50? No? Well you do now!
Destiny is shaping up to be a game I keep forgetting about, until I hear more and get excited. Yeah, I know, it's blowing hot and cold for me. However, we finally get a glimpse at some gameplay in this latest PS4 commercial, and I'm definitely getting hot again.
