Neverwinter: Strongholds logo

I recently was afforded the opportunity to ask a few questions of the folks at Cryptic Studios who are behind the Neverwinter: Strongholds expansion set. But I didn’t get just anyone, I got my answers from Randy “Arkayne” Mosiondz, Senior Content Designer and Loremaster on Neverwinter! Not too shabby, if you ask me. In case you are unaware, Neverwinter: Strongholds is the seventh expansion for the Dungeons & Dragons: Forgotten Realms MMORPG published by Perfect World Entertainment. It was released on August 11, 2015 and is all about group participation. Rather than me explaining it, let’s get right down to brass tacks and take a look at the interview, shall we? There’s also a gallery of screenshots below the interview, so peruse those when you’re done!

The legion of Firefly fans looking for new material in the universe have reason to rejoice today as Fox Digtial Entertainment and QMx Interactive announced plans for Firefly Online, the first officially licensed video game for the cult TV show and movie. The game is set to launch in Summer 2014 and will be available on iOS devises and the Android marketplace.

The game lets players take on the role of a ship captain, just like Captain Mal Reynolds from the show, where they will find a ship, hire a crew, and take on missions so they can keep flying. Players will also be able to customize their ship while they explore the ‘Verse, and will also be able to connect with other players using unique social features. There’s no price information on the game yet, so we’ll just have to wait and see if there will be a one-time price for it or if they will go with a monthly price or go with the freemium model of micro-transactions for in game items.

You can check out the official trailer for the game here below.

This week a bidding war starts (and ends) over Waze, Yahoo wants Hulu, Tim Cook spills the beans about…well, nothing, Blizzard drops its new MMO from the schedule, backlash against Microsoft’s XBox One, a 3D food printer, and the possible look of the next Playstation.

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

The best-selling MMORPG ever is at it again. With Deathwing defeated and all of Azeroth seemingly safe for a few months, the eyes of residents of the World of Warcraft shift towards their next big adventure — Mists of Pandaria. The Panda beta, as players are lovingly referring to it, went live this month. And since it is a public beta with no NDA (Non-disclosure Agreement) from Blizzard, a ton of information has already hit the Web. I am here to sift through some of the latest info.

Marvel Teases Details Of New MMO On Twitter & Tumblr
space

Marvel Massively Multiplayer SocietyMarvel is teasing details of its new MMORPG based on the Marvel Universe by setting up a protected twitter account under the guise of M.M.M. Society (@MMMSociety). The account’s description reads, “The Marvel Massively Multiplayer Society is your gateway to the Marvel Universe, Marvel’s upcoming epic MMO” and features a link to a password-protected Tumblr page.

Comic fans have been awaiting news of a Marvel MMO ever since the company terminated its plans to create a game with City of Heroes developers Cryptic Studios, (which later morphed into Champions Online).

The MMM Society is the first bit of news we’ve heard regarding the company’s MMO since 2009, when Geeks of Doom was alerted to a job posting seeking developers for the project. But while a covert promotional campaign about a Marvel MMO may signal that we’ll start to see some concrete information about what to expect from the game, it will likely be years before it launches.

Syfy Channel & ‘Rift’ Creator Trion Team Up To Create TV Series/MMO Video Game Fusion

Every once in a while a project so dauntless and ambitious that you almost have to cringe at what might happen if it all falls apart comes along, but with these projects also comes a pure excitement at the thought of them working. NBC Universal’s Syfy Channel and Trion Worlds have just such a project in the making, and if it works like they want it to work, it could quite literally change the world of entertainment forever and ever.

Here’s the basic idea: Trion, who’s latest title, Rift, has many saying that MMORPGs that aren’t World of Warcraft can be made and enjoyed, have entered into a partnership to create a brand new currently untitled TV series AND online video game — currently being called a Syfy Action MMO — that live and breathe as one entity. Confusing, right?

Game Review: DC Universe Online

DC Universe Online
Sony Online Entertainment
PlayStation 3/PC
Price: $59.99 with a $14.99 monthly subscription
Released January 11th, 2011

DC Universe Online is not the first superhero Massively Multiplayer Online RPG to be released, but it is the first to have a major license behind it and it has been widely anticipated by its audience. Thanks to this game, players have the chance to fight alongside some of their favorite characters as well as interact with other fans. The game doesn’t stray too far from the formula perfected by World of Warcraft, which is a good thing, because the setting is really the selling point of the game. Never before have players been able to explore a living, breathing DC universe in this way. However, the game is not without its flaws, and those looking to check it out may want to wait a few weeks while the inevitable bugs are worked out of the system.

The story sets up the flavor of the DC universe right from the start. Lex Luthor has traveled from a future in which he has defeated Superman, but met defeat at the hands of Brainiac. He has traveled back in time and released those most precious of plot devices, nanobots, into the atmosphere in order to turn ordinary people (the player) into an army of superheroes that can defeat Braniac. It doesn’t take a masters degree in DC history to keep up, but a lot of the fun of the game is seeing your favorite DC heroes and villains brought to life and fighting beside them. It also helps to know some of the creators behind the books, as many of the locations are named after famous writers, artists, and editors.
