The Stream Team: Building an ark edition, July 8 - 14, 2013

You know, most people complain about the rain. Me? I love it! I love dancing in it, washing the car in it... I just plain love it, even more than sunshine. But there reaches a point when you can have too much of a good thing (except MMOs, of course!). So since the rain doesn't seem to want to let...

Rise and Shiny revisit: Global Agenda

Ah, I had some glorious times in Global Agenda, so long ago that Seraphina Brennan still worked here and we struggled to livestream the game to do a giveaway or two. The developers prepared some pre-made level 30 characters for us, complete with Massively logo holograms emblazoned across the...

The Game Archaeologist: When sequels attack!

Sequels are both the bane of and a fact of life for movies and video games. Well, "bane" is a strong word, and you're probably thinking of Batman right now anyway, but personally, I'm always willing to give the benefit of doubt to any continuation of a favorite franchise. While we don't see...

PAX East 2013: Hi-Rez Studios' Todd Harris talks SMITE, Global Agenda 2

SMITE just recently celebrated the release of its 32nd playable deity, Aphrodite, but she's far from the last thing in the wings for Hi-Rez Studios' borderline blasphemous MOBA. We got the chance to catch up with Hi-Rez COO Todd Harris at PAX East to find out what awaits in the studio's future....

The Perfect Ten: Memorable marketing campaigns

I took only a single marketing class in college, so by no means am I an instant expert in anything but being on the receiving end of marketers' nefarious experiments to manipulate me so that I buy their stuff. I did take away the lesson that all marketers are professional liars who have no shame...

Jukebox Heroes: Eleven MMO soundtracks you can get for free

Collecting MMO soundtracks is a scattered, scavenger-like experience. Releasing video game soundtracks isn't exactly high up on studio and publisher to-do lists (although we're seeing more love from digital stores), so whether or not a title will get a music release is really a crapshoot. What...

Choose My Adventure: You decide the MMO and how I play it

It's finally time for my second round of Choose My Adventure. The last time I helmed CMA, Lineage II was top pick, and I had a lot of fun with it. I took tons of screenshots and video to keep you in the loop as to my progress, and you can expect the same, whichever game is chosen this time. ...

Massively Speaking Episode 219: Kickstart THIS!

Between sequels, Kickstarter projects, and expansions shooting out of every developer's thinkhole, the MMO industry is changing so fast that all Bree and Justin can do is ride the wave and shoot the curl. It's an all-California, all-surfer episode of Massively Speaking brought to you by Point...

The Firing Line: Hi-Rez talks Global Agenda 2

Three cheers for Hi-Rez! In addition to providing me with a no-brainer of a column topic this week, the Atlanta-based development firm is also gifting its fans with a reboot of Global Agenda. The original GA launched way back in February of 2010, and while it remains one of the more enjoyable...

Hi-Rez prepping Global Agenda sequel with focus on PvP

Hi-Rez Studios' Global Agenda is a curious concoction of third-person shooter, MMO PvE, and team-based PvP. The game is also a ton of fun even though it has a ton of issues (chief among them being its primary focus and identity). The game wasn't financially successful, but the developers...
