Accessibility - My most hated word of this games generation

442d ago ... As the current games generation moves towards it`s end and the next one is soon going to start I wanted to go over my most hated word during this generation. This word would be: ACCESSIBILITY During this generation accessibility was term used rather often. In itself it means to make something more accessible or user friendly in order to reach more customers and increase sales. If done rig...

Cash Shops and MMOs and...Pokemon?

777d ago ... Let me give you guys a quick back story on my experiences with Massively Multiplayer Online games (MMOS). I never had a powerful computer growing up (I’m a 90s kid, Go Go Power Rangers!). I wasn’t at all a PC gamer and grew up with consoles. My very first MMO experience came on the Sega Dreamcast with Phantasy Star Online. Using that 56k modem to log on and interact with other players was somet...

Why the world needs an MMO like Dark Souls

883d ago ... MMOARPOWG, or, Massively Multiplayer Online Action Role-Playing Open World Game for short, could be a breath of fresh air the MMO community needs. Technical aspects aside, imagine an MMO where the idea of killing each individual monster and/or player requires skill. A semi-ruthless world where instead of mapping abilities to an action bar, your knowledge and commitment would determine to what...

It is seems that some brand new things happened. We are also like to share with you about the expected pet battle system. Usually, we can see in old expansions of WoW or in other games, the pets or companions wo...

Guild Wars 2 BETA: WOW or Just a WoW Clone?

969d ago ... Guild Wars 2 has just released it's first open beta and I was lucky enough to be part of it. 5 years ago I was delighted to be part of the first real PC RPG that offered no subscription fee to play. It held some benefits over World of Warcraft, but it was severely lacking in the group interaction. So, how does Guild Wars 2 stand up? Taking into account this was just a beta, and not the full...

Star Wars: The Old Republic - To buy or not to buy

1122d ago ... This is my first blog here on N4G, and the reason I'm writing this is because I'm facing a big dilemma regarding the new Bioware game, "Star Wars: The Old Republic". I will state some of my opinions regarding the game, with some playtime experience to back it up. Please note that the video I attached contains a scene from the game, and therefore may be considered by some to be a spoiler. It'...

MMORPG, what are you really achieving?

1196d ago ... Hello everyone, a lot of opinions will be made in this Blog so if opinions are not your thing your welcome to leave. MmoRpg, they're large fantasy games that toss you into a world where you and millions of other players could progress through the game with Quests, or just straight grinding. MmoRpgs usually a lot of things to keep players around, like Building your home, creating your charact...

A disease is spreading among gamers

1278d ago ... Do you often think back on memories of a time when you were young and the best thing you knew was to play video-games? Do you feel like the games of today isn't as fun as they were when you were growing up? Well, you might suffer from "gamer-fatigue", as I would like to call it. To suffer from this can be serious, from a gaming perspective. (I'm not comparing it to any diseases like cancer o...

E3 2011 EA Press Conference

1299d ago ... Man I was so bored watching the EA Press Conference. Seriously I'm sure everyone else what screaming ZOMGs all over the place but not me. Here's my responses to each announcement. - Mass Effect 3 release at March 6 2012. It's a Galactic War. I'm not a fan of Mass Effect myself but it still looks good. - Need For Speed: The Run. Uses Autolog and implements it in the games story. You get to...

What makes a good MMORPG

1312d ago ... Ok I've been thinking about this for a while now and also I just finally quit Final Fantasy XI, so I've come up with stuff that makes a good MMORPG. I COULD just point at World Of Warcraft and say pretty much that but that's not completely true either. It has the majority of them but it is missing some things. 1) Community - This is first on my list because it's the most important. When I pl...

The Secret World - Is it going to fail or succeed

1369d ago ... It`s Funcom`s new baby allright. They came up with a teaser a year ago, it didn`t mean much other than knowing that they are making another mmorpg. Well, for me they gained a lot of credit with Age of Conan. It was a new IP from a new company trying to out compete a giant - Blizzard - . Sure, Age of Conan failed in the long term, or let me rephrase it by saying it didn`t meet the expectation...

Death to: Episode 1, World of Warcraft

1406d ago ... The headline might sound a bit harsh, but there will come a time when World of Warcraft is shut down physically. I've been a WoW-player for nearly 6 years and today I can't understand (in general, the game still has its moments) why I became so "addicted" to this one game. World of Warcraft is an MMORPG (duh!). You play with a billion other players (well that measurement is probably better f...

The era of "World of Warcraft" is coming to an end

1425d ago ... Surely, many of the almost 12 million players won't agree with me. But in a way, I sincerely hope that I am right. World of Warcraft is surely great for the beginner, it is great for those who want to relax and do things randomly. One instance here, an easy raid there. Gather some materials for that, and so on. World of Warcraft is great in many ways, but its biggest flaw is how repetiti...

2011 big year in gaming!

1475d ago ... 2011 will no doubt be one of the biggest years in gaming this generation! Featuring games such as Mass Effect 3, Uncharted 3, Portal 2, Elder Scrolls V, Killzone 3, Gears of War 3, Forza 4, Batman Arkham City, Little Big Planet... Must I go on? PS3, xbox360, PC, who wins? Everyone.(Unfortunately there have been no very big Nintendo games announced, but in time they will be.) But what i...

Open letter to Blizzard

1476d ago ... Well this is more of an open post than a letter but it is about World of Warcraft so indirectly it is aimed at Blizzard. I’ve been playing World of Warcraft for years, on and off. First time I entered WoW was back in 2005 and I was very excited from watching my friend play whenever I could. It was really fun and over the years I ended up with 4 lvl 80 characters, a Paladin, a Hunter, a Death...
