Considering the game still has a release date of “when it’s ready”, the folks at NCsoft have decided to tease us even harder with gameplay footage of both the Guardian and Theif character archetypes…and I have to say, it’s starting to look like one hell of a game.

Did you want to be Boba Fett as a kid? Sure we all did…until he fell like a bitch into a sarlaac pit. Hell, even some of us kids were strange (namely me) and wanted to pretend they were Bossk. Regardless of who or what you took away from the original trilogy when it comes […]

Cryptic has announced that their action-mmorpg Champions Online is now using a free to play model. Though a tiered content model exists, the free account still has access to a majority of the game… but is it worth your time? I’d say yes.

The Only Facebook Game I’ll Support

The Only Facebook Game I’ll Support

I am not the biggest fan of Facebook, but I understand that it is THE way people communicate with each other these days. Forget phone calls, or text messages…it’s all about ‘liking’ people and ‘status updates’. While I don’t mind that aspect of the social network, I do NOT relish the idea of game companies […]
