LOTRO Legendarium: How LOTRO does Lord of the Rings justice

Oh. Oh no you didn't, Kotaku. You didn't just sit there, scratching your head for an easy post, and then write up an essay about how after 40 years no video game has ever done Lord of the Rings justice. "There are plenty of video games that get the surface level details of Tolkien’s work right," the veteran publication...

Sea of Thieves’ latest quality-of-life update tweaks arena waiting time, cooking, and rowboats

Conan Unconquered slides its release date ahead a day to May 29

Well, this is a pretty different sort of release date adjustment. Conan Unconquered has decided that Thursday, May 30th, is just too round a number and doesn't have the syllabic punch punch of a Wednesday, May 29th, release date. That's actually not true at all; the game is just ready to go. "We're eagerly looking forward to launch and...

Ashes of Creation explores economy-centric nodes at the heart of its player city system

Ashes of Creation is speaking my language this week in its lengthy dev blog on the game's economic node.
