It’s been a little over three weeks since I started playing NCsoft’s martial arts MMO import, and my desire to reach the level cap has lessened considerably.
Technically I know advanced assassination techniques, but it’s all a sort of Kung Fu as far as NCsoft’s latest Korean import is concerned. Check out my impressions after one week of that sort of fighting—you know, the one everyone is doing.
Martial arts MMORPG Blade & Soul launched in North America and Europe today, bringing with it one of the most gut-wrenchingly awesome movement systems I’ve ever experienced in the genre. Hold on to your stomachs, kids.
While Steam gets a lot of hype for discounted prices, you don’t actually have to spend any money to enjoy some of the best games the service has to offer. Over the years, Steam has accumulated a number of great games that are free-to-play, and I’m here to tell you which ones you should check out.
I put up with a lot of nonsense as a mobile gamer, from arbitrary timers and energy meters to pay-to-win in-app purchases. Selling faster load times might just be the worst.
Marvel Puzzle Quest for mobile and PC was an exciting concept marred by free-to-play mechanics. Coming later this year, the console version of Marvel Puzzle Quest adds multiplayer and ditches free-to-play.
“This isn’t an article about the evils of free to play manipulation to get you to spend money. This is about how we can target you, because we (and our partners) know everything about you.” Some brutal reading at TouchArcade.
From Facebook to mobile to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Disney’s Frozen Free Fall: Snowball Fight is the first free-to-play match-three game on consoles. It probably won;t be the last.
Since its release in August of 2012 playing the subscription-free PC MMORPG Guild Wars 2 has been a simple matter of purchasing the initial game. Starting today you don’t even have to do that.
The former Gears of War designer has confirmed the name of his upcoming free-to-play shooter. The game is set in a world after “the shattering,” a cataclysmic event that permanently changes Earth’s gravity.
Wanna check out Seth Killian’s new free-to-play fighting game that’s full of mechs beating the crap out of each other? You’re in luck, as the game’s alpha test is now open to everyone. As Killian told us a few weeks ago, the goal is to help you suck less at fighting games.
After waiting to log in for the better part of an hour I finally got five minutes with free-to-play voxel building MMO, Trove. On the sixth minute the servers were brought down. Update: Now with the damn video.
Carbine Studios’ sci-fi MMORPG Wildstar launched in June of 2014, bravely opting for a paid subscription model while more high-profile games were going free-to-play. They made it a year!
Our first look at Bandai Namco’s Project Treasure, a free-to-play four-player third-person adventure game for the Wii U. Shown during this morning’s Japanese Nintendo Direct, it looks to be some sort of supernatural treasure hunting game with four-player co-op. Expect more info later in the summer.
Here’s a sad truth: Unless you have thousands of hours or hundreds of dollars, it’s impossible to enjoy more than a sliver of League of Legends.
League of Legends is rolling out something called “champion mastery” across the game’s many servers this week. It’s an experimental feature that sounds like it could scratch an itch that League players have felt for a long time: the desire to toy with their favorite characters in immediate, tangible ways.
Jurassic World won’t hit theaters until June, but the mobile game is out now. Against my better judgement, given my experience with Mortal Kombat X’s mobile game, I decided to play it.
League of Legends changes in big ways with alarming frequency. The game’s tens of millions of players have learned to never be shy about letting Riot know they don’t like something, therefore—usually by writing a strongly-worded forum post. This week, angry fans are doing something much more elaborate. And awesome.
As it turns out, Mortal Kombat X is a surprisingly decent mobile game. Unfortunately, it’s also free-to-play, and the way it dishes out the experience pretty much ruins it.
Right now, you can go into the 3DS’s eShop and download Pokémon Rumble World, free of charge. While the price tag is pretty enticing, I’ve spent some of today playing it, and well...I’m not super impressed.
