Differentiating & Combining RPGs & MMOs In the world of video games, RPGs and MMOs are extremely popular ways to play a game and interact with others. RPG stands for role-player game, which means that a video game has an overarching narrative that players interact with and advance through. MMO stands for massively-multiplayer online. [...]
As far as table top games go, Dungeons & Dragons is the grandfather of them all. Having been enjoyed for decades by young and old alike, D&D offers you the opportunity to escape into a magical world filled with intrigue and mysticism. D&D is more than a hobby – it’s a way of life for [...]
In this article I will be showcasing Warhammer 40k's Dark Vengeance Starter Kit. This is a kit that contains everything you need to start playing games of Warhammer 40k.

Video games… the very term conjures up something different for each one of us. For some, the wispy mists of the ‘80s fills our visions: Packman, Temple of Apshai, Pitfall. Crunchy pixels blipped across the screen in true marvels of electrical engineering. Others may hear the sounds of tiny plumbers feet scuttling about levels made [...]
RPG players rejoice, today we’re covering the massive dungeon crawler by Runic Games Torchlight II.

Role-play games came a long way, but some of the titles that kept us entertained when we were younger would still be enjoyable to play, with slight tweaks. It is only fair to include Rainbow Moon among old-school RPGs, but it would be terribly unfair to dismiss it as dated or obsolete. The guys at [...]
Skyrim has enough fans right now to make any add-on a success, but it wouldn’t hurt looking at the latest Dawnguard installment with a critical eye. It aims to add a couple more hours of content to a title that is already impressive, with roughly 100 hours of intense action awaiting players. Fortunately the add-on [...]
Branded as an action game with RPG elements, Dragon's Dogma brilliantly succeeds in combining the two genres and incorporating MMO features as well. It is a hybrid and a pretty good one as well, although the overachievers at Capcom had to sacrifice something in the process. For a title that starts from such an intriguing premise, [...]
Okay, I was a bit disappointed when I read that The Secret World release date had been pushed back to July 3rd. But after playing the beta and exploring Kingsmouth Crossing the last few weeks, I think it will be worth the wait. The Secret World is a horror MMO game set in modern times [...]
