Strife: A Second MOBA From S2 Games

Strife

S2 Games of Heroes of Newerth fame, are trying a second round at MOBAs with Strife. The game is said to be more casual than its predecessor, and adds pets and item crafting to the genre. We had a try at it and appreciate the effort to simplify the MOBA genre for new comers yet keep the game intricate and complex for competitive play, but will it hold up against the competition?

Strife is currently in Open Beta and is available through their website.

ArcheAge Soundtrack Was Just – Mindblowing, Someone Was Actually Riffing Over The Loop

ArcheAge

One thing that we noticed over the weekend, playing ArcheAge to our hearts content, was the music was amazing, aside from being well produced, the variety was absolutely mind blowing and was inter weaved with the game and visuals thoughtfully. We were actually surprised to hear that one track had a guy soloing over the whole loop. It was a refreshing experience riding mount or gliding with a kids choir over the background. A lot of the music gave an epic and hopeful feel to the game which in itself already was. We’re sure you’d love to listen yourself so here you go. Enjoy!

How Eternal Will Eternal Crusade Be?

Having been an early adapter of Warhammer Online, I was both skeptic and excited to learn of the development of Warhammer: Eternal Crusade. Last year Warhammer Online said its painful goodbyes to its niche community and went on to close down Mythic later in early in 2014. Their legacy forever tainted by their stint with Dungeon Keeper Online(One the most flamed, dreaded and hated strategy games on the mobile platform), I still believe their true fans will remember them for Dark Age of Camelot and the short lived Warhammer Online.

So why is this all blog worthy?

Well, 2 things, its derivative competitor World of Warcraft is still going strong. Don’t spit your coffee out just yet, I am myself a Blizzard fan. When I say derivative, I meant the story. It’s no great mystery that World of Warcraft is based off Warhammer lore, from the Orcs vs. Humans plot to the oh so powerful Liche, a lot of it is drawn from the Warhammer universe. What Blizzard has done so well and what the game developers who have licensed Warhammer for their games have failed in, is –  Polish. Yes, you know that, Blizzard makes shiny games. Even their biggest fails in Diablo III were fixed, via spit shine, right to perfection even if it took the longest while. I’m not talking about error 33, I mean that horrible, horrible thing that was called the real money auction.

Yes, but you haven’t answered the question yet…

Ok so why am I worried for Eternal Crusade? Well, at first it was a Blizzard project called Titan – although rumors became too convoluted to discern which had value or truth in it, one rumor that worried me was that it would be Starcraft as an MMORPG.

Well that’s not so bad… right?

Well yes we would have another monolithic studio backing one of the best Sci Fi MMORPGs ever and that is not bad at all. The thing is I want Eternal Crusade to survive. I want and have always wanted the Warhammer universe to prosper and grow, because I see to much overlap in the Space Marines and the Terran Marines and fear if Titan was indeed a Starcraft MMORPG it would again overshadow such a good thing, then we’d lose another great MMO to the void. But who’s to say. Destiny is out and it seems like a very strong MMO Shooter, I’m not sure how close they will be tugging players from each other but hopefully just enough to leave the other thriving.

A few friends say that I shouldn’t worry about Eternal Crusade, Warhammer 40k is solid gold with lore. But they said the same thing 5 years ago.

Eternal Crusades has an active community, check it out and if you like what you see start saving up for the Founders Packs.

See some of the pre-alpha gameplay below.
