Here is their state­ment below. “SOE is ded­i­cat­ed to deliv­er­ing the high­est qual­i­ty game expe­ri­ences pos­si­ble,” says John Smed­ley, Pres­i­dent of Sony Online Enter­tain­ment. “ ‘DC Uni­verse Online’ is the first game of its kind, and a tru­ly mas­sive under­tak­ing — the first action MMO set in the DC Uni­verse, the first MMO on the PlaySta­tion 3, and the first time the entire DC Uni­verse will be acces­si­ble to the mil­lions of fans who are eager­ly antic­i­pat­ing its release.

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…
