New Neverwinter Nights Game In 2011
Speculate no further, Atari and Cryptic announced today Neverwinter, an all-new online game based on Wizards of the Coast’s D&D brand and set in the fantasy universe’s iconic city. Neverwinter is expected to launch for the PC in late 2011. While the game will share many of the same locations as Bioware’s original Neverwiniter Nights, it will tell a somewhat different story of a once mighty city that has been decimated by a century of hardship and civil war due to an unclear succession of leadership compiled on top of a plague that has been claiming the lives of many of the lands denizens. While this game will require you to connect to a server to play, cryptic stopped short of calling it a MMO. Gamers will be able to choose from five D&D character classes. Gamers will then be ableRead more…

Optimus Prime gains 100 experience points!
So here it comes! A Transformers MMO! How cool is that? NetDragon (the same people behind Dungeon Keeper Online) will be bringing the level grind and gold farming to the Transformer universe. Also Hasbro has come onboard sanctioning the game. How can it get better? How about releasing it in North America. As of right now the intial release is set for China, Russia, North Africa, and the Middle East. Basically another Asian gem for us in the U.S. to wish for. No other news had been reported for the game, so no one knows for sure what the story line will be, when it will take place, or wether it will be old school comic and cartoon Transformers or new the movie versions. Well I guess we will have to keep our fingers crossed on this one.

What is Wrong With $14.95?
For years I have played various games — everything from simple addictive “Popcap Games” to standard MMO fare. Before trying MMOs, I had always dismissed them as a waste of money, proclaiming that “I shall never play a game requiring a payment subscription.” Fastforward seven years into the future and I own 3 different accounts among two different games. What changed my mind about MMOs and the pay to play business model? Why would I spend most of my free time playing MMOs instead of other games? Let’s start off by asking is $14.95 a lot of money to play a game? When I got to thinking about it more most people spend $50 or more on just their coffee at Starbucks let alone other things they throw their money at. In all reality $14.95 is not that much moneyRead more…
