Mike?s Best of Gamescom 2019

I don’t know why, but I was expecting a lot more out of this year’s Gamescom. Unfortunately, it ended up being mostly a dud. Still, there’s always a couple things of note to come from each show, so let’s round up a couple of the highlights.

Crea – The Hidden Gem

Red Thomas recently discovered the indie game Crea. Developed by a tiny team of five, the game has flown under the radar. Red takes a look and explains some of what makes Crea different from other games in the genre.

OPINION: Red?s Read on Exclusives

Red Thomas takes on exclusive deals between publishers and distribution platforms. Is Epic hurting the community through exclusive deals with publishers that keep popular games away from other providers like Steam?

Elder Scrolls Online Adventures: I Saved Summerset (Spoilers)

This week in ESO, I saved Summerset, our Tawdry Ballz guild completed delves and dungeons in Vvardenfell, and hilarity ensued. [SPOILER WARNING] I’m going to discuss the ending to the main quest in Summerset, so be warned that this post will contain spoilers. Last chance. Good? Alright. If you missed my adventures last week, catch up here. Let’s go.

Vane PC Review

Exploration adventure game Vane, developed by Friends & Foe Games, first released on PS4 on January 15 of this year. I admit, the original release completely flew under my radar. However, with the news of its Steam release just last week, I thought it would be great to check it out for a full review. How is it? This is our Vane review for PC.

Does Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Fill the Marvel Heroes Void?

Now that the game has been out for a couple of days, I’m not so sure. It’s a great looking game (even if the frame rate isn’t so hot). Team Ninja did an excellent job bringing an amazing roster to life. Unfortunately, I feel like the gameplay is a bit of a regression, even for its admittedly simple predecessors.

Colony Survival: With Kids!

Red Thomas takes a look at Colony Survival and borrows children from his sister again to see how kid-friendly the game might be. Red explores the game with his nephews and comes up with a few ideas for how to help youths enjoy the game a little more, though with some adult support.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 Review ? Retro Fun-tastic

The original Dragon Quest Builders game was a sandbox action role-playing game developed and published by Square Enix for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita systems back in 2016. Early this year Nintendo published the same game for the Nintendo Switch. The game was set in the land of Alefgard, which is the world from the immensely popular Dragon Quest series of RPG games.

Growing MMORPG.com Into the Next Decade

For those who don’t know me, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Joseph Bradford and I will be stepping into the role as MMORPG’s Managing Editor. Since 2012, I’ve written about video games and the industry as a whole on multiple outlets, such as IGN, Playboy, and GamesRadar among others.

Standing at the Crossroads

It’s been an eventful ten years since 2009. I’ve gotten a divorce. I’ve seen my daughter enter high school, get a driver’s license and to grow into a young woman of whom I am so proud. I’ve moved a few times, met someone important to me and learned to do all sorts of things I never thought I could. But my one constant in the chaos has always been MMORPG.com. I’ve poured my heart and soul into my work as solace when I was hurt, as calm in the eye of the storm of my life and because I love gaming.
