LOTRO Update 15 to Launch on 5th November

Massively reported today that Update 15 for LOTRO will be released on 5th November. This is the third content release this year (four if you include the instanced region of the Dead Marshes). Not a bad for an MMO that is in it’s eighth year. I think Turbine was wise to release these updates as separate

Cooperative PVE in Blizzard’s technically upcoming MOBA, Heroes of the Storm, has quietly taken a high spot in my gaming rotation due to the game’s polish and familiar faces.  I got into the “technical alpha” for Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm MOB…

The […]

Meh, the Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire “demo” was disappointing.

The idea of a demo for a Pokemon game seems pretty strange at this point. The formula hasn’t radically changed since the original Pokemon Red and Blue (and/or Green), at least not fundamentally. You take on the role of some poorly-parented youth who is tasked with a continent/world-spanning adventure to become the very best Pokemon […]

Balancing randomization in MMORPG combat

Roleplaying games are pretty much built around the use of random number generators (RNG). The history of this derives from the tabletop world of course, but there’s a reason randomization has stayed a part of the genre throughout it’s years … Continue reading

[TT] Tiny Epic Kingdoms

Having played only a few games, Tiny Epic Kingdoms strikes me as Hyperborea writ small: tiny box, fewer pieces, fewer mechanics, shorter playing time, but still a game of building and territorial control with a strong strategic element. I could never play Hyperborea with my non-gamer wife, but she would be happy to play TEK […]
