IMO WoW is an awful game but everyone has their own opinions. As for Maplestory, over 100m people world wide would disagree with you. It is by a large margin the most popular MMO. For comparison the second highest player count goes to WoW with around 12m, Then Runescape which is currently at around 9m.

Edit: just for the record, I am not an MS fanboy. Its not really my type of game either but its obviously not "awful" given the number of people that enjoy it.

It is an awful game. Tell me how many people play COD... awful game too. You can have 13 million people toss poop back and forth... Doesn't mean it isn't awful cause of how many people play.

It happened to the global server before but they never officially admitted it.

Too bad for the best fps there is atm...

Sgt_Slaughter35d ago

The market for games like this is too over saturated to make a dent in other established games' player counts. Trying to start all over with a whole new multiplayer meta and grinding to get better is not feasible when there's already a ton of similar games that have come out before it.

New Game of Thrones Video Game In Development

Gravemaster writes: "Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire is a successful franchise, but it hasn’t had much luck when it comes to video games. Many were released, but only the one from Telltale games received more or less recognition and it was cancelled after one season anyway. Now, we have news of another Game of Thrones game in development."

The first 3 or 4 seasons were brilliantly written, then the writers ran out of steam.

Netmarble is one of the biggest mobile developers, if that's not enough indication

SDuck38d ago

There's a trailer in the article with the Netmarble brand attached to it. Netmarble is a well known mobile gaming studio.

Wow those graphics are incredible

Maybe that's what Larian is working on? Or even better, an isometric Witcher CRPG like BG3, a man can dream.

Nice, I don’t know anything about these titles. But hoping they’ll be worth the watch.

Xbox Partner Preview.
Xbox games that will be released on partner consoles including the Nintendo Switch and the PlayStation 5.

Asplundh106d ago

That should be pretty obvious, but then again there are some people who end up believing these are exclusive.

neomahi106d ago

Sounds familiar doesn't it? Xbox has never been creative or innovative

FinalFantasyFanatic105d ago

I normally just watch these so that I can add anything that interests me to my Steam wishlist.

Watch out for The First Berserker: Khazan. It looks really cool. It was first shown in TGA 2023.

Pretty cool as well that we'll get know more about Capcom's new IP Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess.

I'll be watching for pc games

anast106d ago

I wonder which games they are going to announce for the PS5 and Android.

Lightning77106d ago

Seeing how it's a partner preview which I means 3rd party. It's safe to assume all be on PS.

RaidenBlack105d ago

they do ... many State of Play(s) are 3rd party focused

jznrpg106d ago

The 3 games listed are multiplats.
I actually looked up the Tales of Kanzera:Zau a month or so ago because I thought it could be an actual Tales of game but I was very disappointed to find out it is an indie game being published by EA and not an actual Tales of game. Gameplay looks ok but I don’t like the art style. It looks a lot like the recent Prince of Persia game.
