  • Weekly Column by MMORPG's Steve Wilson

    In his weekly column MMORPG.com's Steve Wilson takes a look at this hard to define group of gamers.

    I consider myself a casual gamer.

    The reaction I get is always the same, I can't be one, after all I'm too invested too be a casual gamer. Its true, I visit websites about games, talk about meta gaming, discuss game mechanics, write about games, and play games more than I probably should, yet I still consider myself a casual gamer. So why do I, and other casual hardcore players, define our play style as casual?

  • New Beta Journal Released

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online was updated yesterday with a new player beta journal. This week's addition talks about a crafting festival that was held recently.

    A notice was posted for all to see. It was a call for various skilled folk to get together and put those talents to work! Cooks were needed in large numbers to practice their vocation. I had just the hobbit for that task!

    I quickly made my way to Combe. I was certainly in the mood to cook up something delectable. Upon approaching, I noticed many other people already in the crafting area courtyard. Though the presence of so many people in one place caused a bit of a hiccup for my screen, a couple of clicks later, I had it under control.

  • Bill Roper discusses Hellgate: London's gameworld and gameplay

    RPGVault has a look at the upcoming Hellgate:London complete with wonderful screenshots.

    Hunters put their faith in the most advanced weaponry they can acquire. Most are former members of elite military units and clandestine agencies; in these roles, they were accustomed to stalking extremely deadly prey, including each other. In Flagship Studios' Hellgate: London, which takes place in 2038, the titular city lies in ruins, shattered by a demon army against which nuclear and even biological armaments were almost completely ineffective. There is but one final, desperate ray of hope. It resides with factions such as these, who can face the monsters with abilities and technologies outside the realm of normal understanding.
