For this month's volume of MMO Co-Opportunities, we'll be going back to classic format. I'll be taking a look at Neverwinter, the free-to-play MMO by Cryptic, and pulling out some unique aspects of the game that facilitate a co-op playstyle. Let's do it!
In this edition of MMO Co-Opportunities, we preview Wildstar from PAX East 2013. Of course, since this is MMO Co-Opportunities, we look at a couple of co-op specific aspects of the game and mull over their potential for the co-op MMO player.
Seems like all the MMOs are going Free-to-Play these days, whether they started as sub-based games, or they're just launching straight-up F2P. So perhaps it's unsurprising that this month our stories come from three F2P games: TERA, Neverwinter, and Wizardry Online.
We take a look at the Secret World dropping its subscription, Final Fantasy XIV preparing for its Realm Reborn relaunch, and Asheron's Call 2 being resurrected from the graveyard of dead MMOs.
A couple months back we looked at the MMO co-opportunities of the highly anticipated Guild Wars 2. In this month's installment we do a follow-up, focusing on the PVE end-game of the same game.
Guild Wars 2 is finally out! After all the hype, the question begs to be asked: what exactly does this game have to offer us co-op minded people? Let's take a look in a Guild Wars 2 focused edition of MMO Co-Opportunities!
The world is full of creatively bankrupt fantasy MMOs in the time-honored Everquest/World of Warcraft model. Throw a rock, and you’ll hit approximately a hundred Western/Asian fantasy games that all play alike. Swap art styles and network issues and you’ll have a hard time keeping track sometimes. Every now and again, a game comes along and successfully forges its own identity, and I’m happy to report that The Secret World is one of them.
It's been a pretty slow summer on the MMO front. The two biggest pieces of news that I've found have been the Secret World launching and Guild Wars 2 getting a release date. Let's unravel those now, shall we?
There were plenty of MMOs on display at E3 this year, but not enough time to see them all between our other duties. As the only staff member in attendance who really plays MMOs, it fell to me to check out the two that seemed most interesting, The Elder Scrolls Online from Bethesda and Core Blaze from Gamania.
Ahh, the MMO expansion. That lovely thing that most MMO-players long for in their current MMO, or the thing that they were waiting for to entice them back to a past favorite MMO. This month we look at recently announced RIFT expansion, Storm Legion, and LOTRO's expansion Riders of Rohan.
This month's installment of MMOCO is a bit of a philosophical edition. Stuff has certainly gone down within the last month in the MMO department, but it's kind of a steady murmur. And as I sat here, trying to figure out what to focus on for this month's edition, it struck me that we MMO players are in the middle of a pretty great time of innovation and change of the genre.
This year at PAX East, the showfloor was bursting with MMOs, Free-to-Play (F2P) games, and F2P MMOs. We went hands-on with some and were shown the demo for others. If you missed our impressions of these games before, sit back and relax while I round them up for you and break them down.
This month in MMO Co-Opportunities we do something a little different. Rather than highlight a certain MMO, or do an MMO news round-up, we look at some of the reasons we play MMOs as co-op games.
This month here at Co-Optimus, several of the regular feature writers are swapping columns for the month. Normally, Tally, our resident MMO expert, brings you the latest on all the shiniest new massively multiplayer online games in this column. This month, you are stuck with me and my ten-year old son, as we explore the newly free-to-play superhero (or supervillain) quest fest DC Universe Online.
Last month for MMO Co-Opportunities we did a little preview of what the latest blockbuster MMO (the Old Republic) may have in store in way of Co-Opportunities. Now, a few weeks after the game's launch, we take and closer and more informed look.
